Tips For Getting Regulars In Your Cam Room

How to Get Regulars in your webcam room

​One struggle that you’ll likely come across when you first start camming is getting fans to come back time and time again. But once you master how to do this, you’ll definitely notice an increase in the amount of sales that you make, and it’ll make your work day go by much faster. Building a relationship with your fans is very important. Of course you’ll have plenty of guys who just pop in your cam room for a quickie, but you’ll also have lots of guys who want to build an actual relationship with you and really get to know you. These guys are called regulars because they regularly visit your cam room and spend time in there with you.​ So how do you actually get guys to come back and want to see you every time you’re on cam? I’ll tell you!
 
One of the easiest things you can do to get regulars is be yourself! Show your fun side while on cam and just genuinely have a good time. If you truly enjoy what you’re doing, it’ll show to your fans. Happiness, laughter, and smiles are most definitely contagious! If you have a negative attitude while on cam, are crying all the time, or are just giving off a vibe that you’re not into what you’re doing, no one’s gonna wanna stay in or come back to a room like that. There’s always gonna be days when you maybe aren’t in the best mood, but you need to work through that if you’re gonna get on cam. Your bad attitude one day might make it so you miss out on a really awesome fan who would have became one of your regulars had he first seen you on a good day.
 
Another thing that you need to do is be entertaining. Don’t just sit there and blankly stare into the camera. It’s crucial to keep your fans interested. Get up and move around a little bit. Dance, tease, flirt. Any kind of movement will keep your fans interested as opposed to a model who’s just sitting there looking bored. Talking is another very important thing to continually do while you’re on cam. Engage in conversation with your fans. Say hi when someone new enters the room instead of waiting for them to say something to you first. Even if no one’s really talking to you, you can still talk. Maybe try telling an interesting or funny story, or sing along with the music in the background. Like I said before, just doing something whether it be getting up and moving around or just talking is so much more interesting then someone who’s not doing anything.
 
If you start to notice a fan that’s coming into your room pretty often, be sure to take notes on them. Many cam sites allow you to type notes in for each user. These notes are only visible by you. This is a really good tool for remembering your fans name, what they’re into, or just little things about them that they told you. If someone is investing a lot of time and/or money into you, you’ll kind of seem like a snob if you continually have to ask them what their name is. 😛 Make your regulars feel special. Give them a big smile and greet them by their name when you notice them pop into your cam room. Maybe even give them a follow back on social media. These are all just little things that you can be doing to make sure your fans become regulars, and stay regulars.

Working With A Male Cam Partner

Most cam models start out solo. ​Some choose to stay solo their entire career. But if you’re looking to branch out, working with a partner can really help you do that. Guys like to watch a girl play with a dildo, but there’s nothing better than the real thing! In this article, I’m gonna talk about working with a cam partner, particularly with a male partner.

Working with a Male Cam Partner

 
There is definitely a learning curve for both you and the guy you’re working with. Even if you’re both very experienced sexually, and even if you’ve had sex together in your personal life, things are a little different on cam. When you have sex in your normal, everyday life, I’m guessing you aren’t performing for a crowd. Every aspect of your show needs to be thought out so that you can be sure to put on the best show possible. Lighting, angles that look the best on cam, angles that don’t block your fans view, positions that are the most comfortable for you, positions where he won’t finish after only a couple minutes, deciding if you’re gonna hold the camera throughout some of the show, where he’s gonna cum, if he’s gonna cum, if you’re gonna do straight sex or maybe add in a blow job. These are all factors to consider before you actually start your show. If the two of you aren’t on the same page, things are gonna look awkward and you’re gonna end up wasting time figuring out all the details during the show. Your fans are paying to see action, not you having to flail the camera around all over the place to figure out the right angles or asking your partner what he thinks you guys should do next.
 
With pretty much all camming software, you can pull up the camera feed to watch yourself on your computer screen without actually broadcasting anything live on the internet. This is definitely something that you and your male partner should experiment with before doing actual cam shows. This is the only way you’re gonna be able to figure out all of the angles that will work with two people. When you’re solo, the angles are pretty easy to figure out, but it’s a lot more difficult with two people. You want to make sure your fans always have a good view of you and don’t end up staring at your male partner’s ass the whole time or something haha. Little things like making sure the initial penetration is clearly visible, occasionally doing close-ups, or having him hold the camera for some POV action can really add to your show and excite your fans.
 
Doing lots of cam shows in one day and having multiple orgasms (or faking them :P) is pretty easy for most female models. But, as you can probably imagine, it’s nearly impossible for guys. They can’t fake an orgasm because it’ll be obvious when there’s no cum, and most males, unless they’re porn stars, need breaks in between each orgasm. And some males can only cum a couple times in one day, even with breaks. This is definitely one of the biggest things to consider when planning your cam shows. There’s different things that you can do for this. The first is to do only a couple boy/girl shows in one day and do the rest of your shows solo. This will give the guy some time to refuel after each orgasm. The other route is to do shows where he doesn’t actually finish. Do several shows like that until you’ve almost reached your daily goal and then do one final “cum show”. This can be tough for some guys though because he has to constantly get turned on and then stop without cumming while the countdown for the next show is going on. But if he’s able to pull this off, you’ll definitely have a lot of success on cam together.
 
The same as if you’re working with another female cam model, all of the behind-the-scenes details need to be discussed and agreed upon before you start camming together. Like can you cam on your solo account or do you need to make a separate couples account, whose name is the account going to be registered in, are you splitting the pay 50/50 or do you keep a higher percentage, will you pay him right away or wait until you get paid by the cam company? It’s also important that you get a copy of his ID and a clear picture of him holding his ID next to his face. This way you’ll be able to post the content from your cam shows on your website or other clip sites. Speaking of that, you should also get a written agreement stating who owns the content and if it’s ok for you to sell it elsewhere. Just make sure all of your bases are covered.

Date Raffle Do’s and Don’ts

A popular trend recently among cam models is holding a date raffle. ​A date raffle can take on two different forms: an in person date where your fan actually gets to meet you and hang out with you, or a date over Skype or another camming platform. Your fans get really excited about raffles like this. Even if it’s just a Skype date raffle, it’s still a personal one-on-one hangout session with you. Sometimes these don’t even get sexual. They might just involve eating or watching a movie together while chatting with one another. If you decide to hold a date raffle, whether it be a real date or one over Skype, there are definitely some precautions you should take.

Webcam Raffles – how to do them

As with any raffle that you hold, you need to be smart and plan every little detail out in advance. So before you even announce your raffle, make a list that includes the prize(s) that you’re offering, how much each entry will cost, when the deadline to enter is, when and how you’ll be drawing the winner(s), what the winner(s) should expect on the date, and any other details that you can think of. Nothing is too small to include. Sometimes fans will try to find a loophole or take advantage of you if you aren’t clear from the start about your raffle.

If you’re new to camming, it’s probably best not to hold a raffle like this. Wait until you have a decent following. Some models make the mistake of holding raffles with huge prizes before they’ve really established a following. They think that bigger prizes will help them raise more money. But this isn’t always the case. It can be a big disappointment if you’re offering a large prize and end up not getting a lot of entries. You may be stuck losing money in the end. Or you may need to cancel the raffle, which is disappointing to everyone who entered. You may lose the trust of your fans if you cancel a raffle.

Just to protect yourself, a good clause to put in your raffle rules is that it’ll only happen if you sell a certain amount of entries. When the deadline hits, if you haven’t raised enough, you can choose to extend it if you’re close to your goal or offer consolation prizes. In the case of consolation prizes, I personally think that every single person who entered should at least get something. This way no one feels like it was a waste of their money. And you should still have big prizes for the winner(s). But like I said earlier, if you don’t have a big following, it’s probably best not to hold a contest like this in the first place. You’re only setting yourself up to fail.

If you’re doing an in person date raffle, one thing to consider is doing it with another model. You can both sell individual entries into your raffle, both pick your own winner, then do a double date kind of thing. It’s just more safe that way, and it can be a lot more fun. Your fans might sometimes get confused about what to expect on the date. It’s crucial that you make it very clear when you first announce the raffle. Let them know that nothing sexual is going to happen, no physical contact, etc… unless you want that, of course. Other details that should be considered are if there’s a set day/time for the date or if it’s up in the air and if you’re paying for their airfare, hotel, food, etc. One popular option that some models decide to do is to hold the date during a porn or cam convention. This way you get to walk around with your fan at a convention where there’s lots of other models around. There’s no pressure at something like that and you’re constantly surrounded by people. This is also just a fun, unique experience for your fan to actually get to walk around with a model at a convention for models.

If you’re holding your date over Skype, it’s also very important to be clear about all the details when you first announce your raffle. Is there gonna be nudity, cam2cam, how long will the date last, can they make requests, when will it be, etc. Be upfront about everything you plan on doing during the Skype date so that your fans know what to expect before they enter. It’ll also save you the trouble of having to say no if they ask for specific things during the date that you didn’t want to do.

The main things to take out of this is to make sure you have a large enough following before holding a raffle like this with such big prizes, be sure to make every detail and rule clear before announcing your raffle, and be safe!

Offering Cam Shows That Your Fans Want To See

Cam shows your fans want to see

So you’ve decided that you want to be a cam model. Well now that you’ve made that decision, it’s time to figure out what exactly you’re gonna do in your cam shows. When it comes to this, there are many different routes to go down. You can start by watching other cam models that you admire and see what they do, you can wing it at first and decide what to focus on after you get some fan feedback, or you can be out of the box and do something different that’s never been done before. When it all comes down to it, this is your business. You’re the boss, which means you’re the decision maker.

When figuring out what kinds of cam shows to offer, you should first consider your own comfort level. This is the most important factor. If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, it’ll show in your shows. No one wants to watch a model who isn’t truly into her performances. And if you don’t enjoy what you do, you won’t have any motivation to continue working and will probably end up quitting.

Just because the majority of cam models do their shows a certain way, doesn’t mean that you have to follow suit. But with that said, it’s still important to make sure you’re putting on shows that your fans actually want to see. You might have a really unique idea that you want to try out. But if no one’s into it, you aren’t going to make any money. There’s no harm in trying out new things, but just know that some ideas are gonna be better than others, and not everything is going to work out the way you want it to. This is especially true if you’re trying to be different and do things that you’ve never seen done before. Don’t let failure scare you. If you think you have a good idea, you might as well give it a try. It may turn out to be genius!

A lot of cam models will go into camming with an open mind. They’re willing to try almost anything, within reason, at least once. If you’re comfortable doing this, it can really be helpful. You’ll not only be able to figure out what it is that your fans most want to see you do, but also what turns you on. Like I said, if you aren’t enjoying the shows you’re putting on, it’s gonna be obvious. When I first started camming, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. I tried lots of different fetishes and really paid attention to my fans feedback. I got a lot of requests for daddy/daughter, school girl, and age play stuff. I quickly found out that those things were all big turn-ons for me and I was good at them! So even though I went into camming not really knowing what exactly it was I was gonna focus on, the fact that I remained open to different scenarios really helped me figure out my niche.

When you’re doing something like a group show on Myfreecams or a gold show on Streamate, it’s best to stick with generic shows that everyone will enjoy. But if you’re just doing a show in public chat, that’s where you can try out new things. You’ll know if it’s working based off of whether or not you get tips. But when you’re doing a group or gold show, your fans are paying in before the show starts. If you decide to try out something new and different there, you may end up wasting tons of time having to do your countdowns over and over again because it’ll be harder to reach your goal.

In closing, don’t be afraid to step outside the box and try new things on cam. Some will work and some not so much. But the point is that you tried. Experimenting with different ideas that you come up with is the only way to know if they’re gonna work or not. You may just be the next cam trendsetter!

What Cam Site Is Right For You

​With the growing number of cam sites out there right now, it may be a tough decision figuring out which site you want to cam on. Or even if you’re already an established cam model, your needs on a cam site may have changed over the years. Even if you’ve been on the same site for a long time, it’s not always a bad idea to make a move and try out a different site. In the past year, a lot of big cam sites have emerged. Depending on your needs, wants, and the types of shows you offer, some sites are just gonna work out better for you than others.

What webcam site is right for you?

One of the first major things to consider is if you want to work on a site that allows you to do public shows. A site like Myfreecams is a perfect example of a site that allows public shows.​ During a public show, you’re in general chat where everyone can see you. You generally will set a goal and everyone in the room has to collectively tip in order to help you reach your goal. Once each goal is met, you reward the entire room by removing an article of clothing or by putting on some kind of show (blow job, oil, shower, toys, etc.). On sites that offer public shows, you’ll most likely notice a lot more traffic than you would on other sites… especially while you’re actually performing a show after reaching your goal. But just because more people are in the room, that doesn’t mean that any of them are going to tip extra while you’re actually performing.

One downfall of sites that allow you to do public shows, is that your performances are more likely to get leaked and shared on the internet. You may have to hire a DMCA takedown site to help get your content removed from tube and torrent sites. You have to remember that you’re gonna have lots of freeloaders in your room on sites like this. Those are the people who are most likely to secretly record your shows and post them elsewhere. Often times, you have to work longer hours on sites like this in order to reach your goals. But in general, the payout overall can be much higher. Many of the top cam models work on sites that offer public shows.

Some sites, such as Streamate, don’t allow nudity in public chat. Instead, public chat is more for teasing and getting your fans to take you into a private or exclusive show. In those shows, your fan pays per minute for alone time or shared time in a small setting with you.

Group shows, called gold shows on Streamate, are also a popular option on sites like this. Basically you set a goal amount that you want to raise, the minimum amount each person has to tip in to watch the show, a countdown to make the goal, and a topic for what you’re gonna do in the show. So even though this is a group show and may have a lot of people watching, it isn’t just open to the public like it would be on Myfreecams. Instead, each person has to tip into the show in order to see it. Once the show starts, only those who tipped the minimum or higher will be taken into a private room to watch the show. This doesn’t prevent your shows from being shared on the internet, but it does lower the risk because not as many people will be viewing them since they aren’t free.

Things like the percent you keep on the site and how much traffic they get should also factor into your decision. Some sites pay as low as 30% to their models, and some pay up to 70%. But just factoring in the percentage isn’t enough. Even if you keep 70% on one site, the traffic might not be there. You may end up making a lot more money on a site that only offers their models 35%. Some sites allow you to sell videos, advertise your social media accounts, or even set up a store front.

This is also something to really consider. If you’re able to offer videos to those who tip in extra, that can definitely help increase the amount of money you make. And if you can mention your social media accounts while camming, you’re gonna be able to generate a lot of new followers every day. I’d suggest taking a look at the different sites that are out there, maybe even giving a few a try, and just see which one(s) work best for you personally.

Cam Model Code Of Conduct

Webcam Model Code of Conduct

As with any job, there is a code of conduct that should be followed as a cam model. Even though you’re your own boss and can technically run your business however you want, it’s still important to hold yourself to certain standards that the cam model community finds acceptable. This will give you a good reputation among other cam models and your fans. Even if you plan on remaining a solo model, having a good relationship among the cam model community is incredibly important. You don’t want your name attached to articles or comments on cam model forums that are negative. Besides the possibility of your fans reading these comments and getting a bad taste in their mouth for you, it can cause unnecessary drama that no one wants to deal with. And you’re screwing yourself over if you ever do decide you want to broaden your horizons and try to work with other girls.

The first thing that you should never do is bash other models. Besides being incredibly rude, it’s also hurtful and considered bullying. And aside from that, it makes you look very insecure about yourself and your own abilities as a cam model. If you have a personal issue with another model, keep it between the two of you. Even if they’re antagonizing you, be the bigger person. Either ignore them, block them, or reply via DM instead of in public on social media or in your cam room. And be mature about your responses. Simply explain the issue you have with them, why you have it, and move on. If they can’t seem to understand it, that’s their own problem. Don’t worry yourself over petty drama. In the long run, they’re just gonna make themselves look like an immature baby, and you’re gonna come out the winner. Sometimes it may not be a personal issue, you just might not like another cam models style or something that they do. Remember that they’re running their own business just like you are. Let them do it the way they want. It’s not your position to critique their way of doing things just because it’s not how you do things. Mind your own business and focus on ways to improve your own shows.

So that’s a little bit about how you should interact with other cam models, but let’s go into who you’ll be dealing with on a daily basis: your fans. The way you treat your fans can really make or break you as a cam model. If you want respect from them, you need to give them respect as well. I’m not saying you 100% of the time have to be nice to everyone. Let’s face it, you’re gonna encounter trolls along the way. But the way you deal with them is what’s important. I know it can sometimes be hard to simply block someone without telling them off first, but you should remember that this is what they want. They want to rile you up and get a reaction from you. If you do feel the need to say something to them before blocking them, just keep your cool. Keep in mind that you’re live on cam. Everything you do may be being recorded by someone. If you freak out on someone and that video gets posted on the internet later, it could be embarrassing or make you look bad. It may have been better if you kept your composure and thought about your response before freaking out.

I see a lot of cam models beg for tips all day long while on cam. This is not the way you should be doing things. If it’s ok for you to beg, then who’s to say your fans shouldn’t be beggars too. Instead of begging for tips, occasionally let your fans know about things you’re selling or special promotions you’re currently running. If you’re genuinely enjoying your time on cam and actively interacting with your fans, they’ll be more inclined to purchase stuff from you than if you’re just constantly begging. When they see you begging for tips, it makes them wonder why you’re so desperate to make a sale. Maybe they think your quality of content will suck or that you’re trying to rip them off. Although it can sometimes be tough, you just need to be patient and hang out like usual instead of constantly begging for tips.

If you can follow these basic guidelines, you’re definitely on the road to success. Remember that everything you do may be being recorded, so compose yourself in a way that you want to be remembered by.

Snapchat Takeover Guide

SnapChat Takeover

​Over the past year or so, Snapchat has gained a lot of popularity. Although it’s technically not adult friendly, it’s becoming one of the biggest social media platforms in​ the adult industry. Many cam models and porn stars are jumping on it as a means to make money through the app. Besides just being able to have a private Snapchat account that you sell access too, it’s also a great marketing tool. You can have a public Snapchat that’s free to follow. There you can promote your cam shows, website, other social media links, and anything else you have going on.
 
Aside from just using your own public Snapchat account to promote yourself, Snapchat takeovers are a big thing right now. There are literally thousands of promotional companies and individuals who run cam model promo Snapchat accounts. Many of these accounts have a large following. A good majority of these people had a Twitter promo account first and then created a Snapchat to coincide with it. What they do is grant models access to their Snapchat account and let you ‘takeover’ the account for a certain amount of time. Many promo accounts will give you access for an entire day!
 
Many Snapchat promo accounts will have a no nudity rule. They do this in order to protect their account since nudity actually isn’t allowed on Snapchat. Since they have so many followers, they don’t want to risk getting their account banned and have to start all over again. But just because you can’t show nudity, that doesn’t mean you can’t tease and really get guys all worked up so that they want to buy your content so they can see you naked! It’s sometimes even best not to show too much nudity on the accounts that allow it. That way the followers are more inclined to look you up elsewhere since you’re only teasing on the promo Snapchat account.
 
Besides posting pictures and little Snapchat videos with all of your camming, website, and social media links, you can also play games and do a FAQ session. When you first log on the account, make sure you introduce yourself and let people know that you’re open to answering questions. Soon you’ll notice the Snapchat inbox filling up with all kinds of guys wanting to know more about you. Answer the questions that you’re comfortable with and just have fun with it. If you have an specific rules, make sure you make those known right away as well. Some models don’t allow dick pics. Some don’t want guys to screenshot anything. Be clear about your rules so you don’t have to block too many people on someone else’s account.
 
Games are a really fun way to get the viewers involved and to make some extra money. In your ManyVids store, you can add game items when you’re doing takeovers. Some good ideas are balloon pops that have different prizes in them, spin the prize wheel, and roll the dice to win different prizes. A lot of models will also put their private Snapchat on sale while they’re doing a takeover. You could also set up a special promo code on ManyVids to give out to anyone who watches your takeover.
 
Takeovers can definitely be a lot of fun and earn you some extra cash. I suggest finding out approximately how many followers the account has before you agree to do a takeover though. This way you can judge if it’s gonna be worth your time. Also, you aren’t obligated to stick around all day just because you agreed to do a takeover. If there’s hardly any interaction or if you aren’t selling anything, it’s best not to waste your time. When that happens, just post some snaps with your links and move on. If it’s slow, you can also jump on cam while you’re doing the takeover. Then when you have some free time on cam, make a post or two on Snapchat and let people know that they can come watch you live.

Cam Model Tax Guide

Cam Model Tax Guide

This guide is designed for cam models residing in the United States.

Tax season can be a very stressful time for cam models. One thing that some new models don’t consider is that they need to pay taxes on everything they earn while on cam. Since you’re working as an independent contractor for these sites, they don’t take out any taxes from your paychecks like a normal job would. Because of this, you’re responsible for putting aside money every month so that you have it come tax season.​

I definitely recommend using tax software. There are plenty of options out there that are affordable. Using software and doing your own taxes will prevent the embarrassment of having to talk to someone in person about what it is you do for a living and the strange things you’re writing off. So unless you’re fine with explaining what exactly it is that you do, it’s best to file yourself. 😛

If you made over $600, the main form that you’re gonna be filling out is the 1040. You can easily find a copy of this form in the software you’re using or online with a quick Google search. Unless you’ve branded yourself and actually filed for a business license, there’s no reason to put your stage name or anything like that on your tax forms. Instead you file as an individual and use your social security number and real name. The form is fairly simple to figure out until you get to about the middle of the first page. At this point, you’ll need to list your “business income” and attach Schedule C. Schedule C is where stuff really starts to get complicated. This is the form that you can put your write offs on.

There are many guides on the internet that say you can write off all kinds of crazy things as a cam model. The truth of the matter is that you can only write off things that you bought to use specifically for your job. And even then, there are many restrictions. Having too many write offs is a huge red flag and will get your audited. Even if you get away with it for a couple years, it will eventually come back to bite you in the ass and you may have to pay back taxes for the stuff you originally got away with. Dildos and lingerie are not legitimate write offs according to US law. Don’t even bother trying. Many cam models will also try to write off their “home office”. This includes their rent/mortgage, computer, and even their internet. But remember what I said earlier? You can only write off things that you bought to use specifically for your job. So unless you only live in your house or apartment while you’re working, if you only use your computer for work and not for browsing the internet, and if you only use your internet connection while you’re working and not for personal use at all, these are not business expenses. That means they cannot be written off. Don’t risk getting audited over stuff like this. Like I said, you will get caught.

Besides items that you use for work, you can also write off travel expenses. But again, keep in mind that you can only write off expenses if they were used for work. So if you go on a trip to visit another model to shoot content with, that can be a write off. Or if you go somewhere to shoot your own content, you can write that off as well. If you do get audited, you need to keep every single receipt from your trip. This includes air fare, car rental, gas, hotel, photographer expenses, etc.

For the average cam model, the last form that you should have to fill out is the Schedule SE, or the Self-Employment Tax form. This will let you know how much self-employment tax you owe. Once put into your original 1040, you’ll be able to finish filling that form out and determine your total tax amount. Oh, and don’t forget about your state tax form. You still need to fill that out as well. As long as you only lived in one state over the past year, the form is pretty self explanatory and easy to fill out.

Good luck!

Starting Your Own Website

Starting your Own Website

​Besides doing live cam shows, many cam models branch out to other things in order to earn more money. One popular idea is starting your own website. Generally this would be a paysite that your fans can join in order to get access to a large amount of your content. It could include your videos, photosets, live show archives, blog, and maybe even a store to sell tangible goods and custom content.​ Members would pay monthly to continue accessing your content. Even if you don’t know the first thing about starting your own website, there are companies out there that make it easy for you to get started.

The first one we’ll talk about, and the one that I use for my own website, is ModelCentro. They’ve been around for a few years now and are a great option. They’re basically a CMS (content management system) platform. That means they provide you with all of the tools that are necessary to starting your own adult paysite. This includes premade forms that easily allow you to upload all of your content, add titles, descriptions, keywords, cover pictures, previews, watermarks, etc. They also provide you with on-site software to do live cam shows for your members. These shows can be free to all members or you can have certain members pay for a show with you. They have a built-in blog that you can use, calendar, about me page, and more! They really are the complete package in my opinion. And even though they already have a decent amount of features, they’re always working to add more. They really listen to the models and prioritize their new features based off of model input. An on-site storefront is currently in the works and should be released soon.

A downfall to using a site like ModelCentro, is that they take a percentage of everything that you make. You keep 67.5% when you use them. They take a percentage out for billing and a percentage out for themselves for providing all of the services that they do. Some models prefer to keep more money, which is fine if you know a bit more about web design and have the time to do everything yourself. You might choose to make a site with WordPress. WordPress is more complicated and time consuming to get to know than ModelCentro. Plug-ins and scripts that fit your needs all need to be found and installed by you. WordPress does provide a list of premade plug-ins, it’s just a matter of finding the right ones and getting them configured to your liking.

As far as making it so your fans have to pay to access your WordPress site, you have several different options. You could always use an adult-friendly payment processor such as CCBill. They provide you with fully functional buttons and forms that allow your fans to input their credit card information, have it processed through CCBill, and then provide access to your members-only content once they’re cleared. Another option would be for you to completely create the join page of your website yourself to include other ways of payment such as Amazon gift cards, GiftRocket, tips on a cam site, etc. In my opinion though, this complicates things. If they join through any of those methods, you’ll have to manually create their member account after you get paid. If you aren’t near a computer as soon as you get the notification that someone paid, that member will have to wait until you’re free before accessing your site. That can be frustrating.

If you 100% want to do your site from scratch, you’ll need to get hosting and a domain name. Unless you’re really experienced in web/graphic design or want to pay a company to create the site for you, I don’t suggest even trying this. Paying a company outright to create a site for you can be very expensive. And you’ll need to find a company that’ll work with adult content. And creating a site yourself, even if you have some experience, is incredibly time consuming.

One last thing… make sure you buy Whois privacy for your domain! It’ll mask your true identity. Without it, anyone can look up the name of the person who bought the domain name, along with other personal information. As a cam model, protecting your true identity is very important. So be sure to do this immediately after purchasing your name. It isn’t very expensive, and it’s most definitely a necessity.

Props To Keep Handy While On Cam

Webcam Props for cam shows

In several of our getting started becoming a cam model guides, we talked about the necessities that you’ll need to cam. These include a laptop or desktop computer that can smoothly run your camming software, a HD webcam, fast internet, and flattering lighting. But every good cam model knows the importance of props! Certain props can play a huge role in your daily shows on cam. It’s important to have these things close by you at all times so that you’ll always be prepared.

The first thing is toys. If you’re a nude cam model, you’ll most likely play with sex toys during your cam shows. Most models like to have a wide variety of toys. Not only does this allow you to switch things up from time to time, but it gives your fans more options to choose from if they take you into a private show. I recommend having both a caucasian and black flesh-colored dildo. These are good for real-life roleplays where the guy wants to pretend like he’s really in the scenario and that he’s the one fucking you. I also recommend having a Hitachi and/or wand vibrator. You can find cordless, waterproof wand vibrators on Amazon for around $30. They’re great for making sure you cum nice and hard during your shows too! A lot of guys like watching a girl use glass toys. They feel great and are one of the most sanitary sex toys because they aren’t porous. And if you’re into anal, definitely get whatever anal toys you’re comfortable with. If you only like very light anal, a small butt plug is a good option. Lube is something else that you should keep handy. Make sure that whatever kind of lube you get is compatible with the type of toys you use. Some lubes will eat through certain types of toys. If you’re into spanking, keeping a paddle close by can be fun!

Most models play games with their fans while on cam. A few props to consider picking up are cards, dice, Never Have I Ever, raffle tickets, and a prize wheel. All of these can be used for games, which is a great way to interact with your fans. It keeps them interested and is fun for everyone… including you. If you have video deals or other special promotions going on, a white board, chalkboard, or even just poster board can be very helpful. This way you can list your deals and have it displayed behind you during your shows.

Lingerie, accessories, and other clothes are crucial to being a cam model. Some guys like specific colors or certain materials. Some like it when you dress up in a costume, wear heels, or put on yoga pants. If you keep these things nearby, you’ll always be prepared for whatever is asked of you. This way you won’t miss out on any money if someone comes asking for you to change outfits. Keeping hair ties close by is a good idea too in case you’re asked to switch up your hair style.

A few other miscellaneous things to keep nearby are towels in case of clean-up, baby wipes to quickly sanitize your toys in between shows, lip gloss or any other make-up that might need touching up throughout the day, something to drink, little snacks to munch on, blankets and pillows to keep you comfortable, and just anything else that you think will make your work day easier.
