Instagram Advice For Models

Instagram is one of the hottest social media outlets going right now. Not only is Instagram easy to use, but you also don’t need to compose a whole lot of written content; people are using Instagram to see pictures and as a cam model, that’s really your calling card.

If you’re new to Instagram (check out this platform’s profile), or you haven’t thought about using the social media site to further your cam career, it’s time you started thinking about it!

Before you jump onto Instagram and start flooding it with your pictures, consider these 9 tips that will help you to make the best out of your Instagram experience and increase your followers and engagement, thus increasing your chances of making big bucks in your cam modeling career.

9 Tips for Using Instagram as a Webcam Model

Here are some of the most important tips and tricks that you need to know if you’re camming and working that IG angle or DMing on the gram. Take this advice seriously and take action accordingly!

#1: Post Good Photos

Instagram is completely photo-based so you want to make sure you’re only posting good photos. As a cam girl, you and your body are your money-makers, so you should be pretty adept at making sure you are always looking good on-screen. Become the selfie queen and take as many pictures as it takes to get the “right” shot.

You should also consider using photo-editing apps to enhance what you’ve already got going on. Now, I’m not saying you should edit yourself from looking like a troll into looking like Beyonce, because that is only going to upset anyone who decides to follow you in the cam world. What I am saying is there are excellent apps for improving your photo lighting, clarity, contrast, brightness, as well as providing interesting filters and collage capabilities. Just don’t overdo it.

The best tidbit of advice I can offer on posting good photos is to make sure they’re clear, high-quality, colorful, realistic, and interesting. More interest=more followers.

#2: Post at the Right Time

Before you post your amazing looking photos to Instagram, you want to consider when they’re most likely going to be seen. The majority of Instagram users check in the morning, in the evening, and on the way home from work. According to the stat-gathering company, Simply Measured, the best time to post on the old ‘Gram is on a Wednesday between 5-6:00 PM.

For someone promoting their brand, which you’re doing as a cam model, the worst time to post is overnight. See, Instagram posts only have about a four-hour life before they are buried in a followers feed. Consider when your followers are most likely to be on Instagram and make your posts accordingly.

hashtag

#3: Use Appropriate Hashtags…But Use Them Sparingly

Have you ever looked at someone’s post and seen that they have what seems like hundreds of hashtags? It’s annoying and half the time those hashtags don’t even match up with what that person posted.

Hashtags definitely improve the visibility of your photos and can help you to get new followers who may not know anything about you. To ensure that you’re using the right hashtags for what you’re promoting, give Google a little search. You can also consider using the most popular tags, which include: #tbt (Throwback Thursday), #cammodels, #camgirl, and #followme.

I would recommend that you avoid the hashtag paragraph at the end of your photo and stick with 1-3 relevant hashtags per photo to avoid pics that look cluttered.

post on IG

#4: Post Often

If you want to keep your regular followers interested, and the new ones curious, you have got to post new content on a regular basis. Too many cam models start an account, blast it with pictures and content, then let it fall off.

This doesn’t mean you have to blast out 100 photos a day. In fact, posting once a day, or once every other day is enough to keep everyone happy and avoid losing followers who get bored waiting on you. If you don’t keep your posts on Instagram to a fairly regular basis, don’t be surprised when you lose followers.

#5: Interact with Your Followers

The biggest mistake you can make as a cam girl using Instagram is to ignore your followers. By not responding to your most loyal followers is a surefire way to drive them away. You want them to feel valued, not ignored and underappreciated.

Make sure to respond to their comments and go to their account to “like” a few of their pics. If you want to figure out who are your biggest followers, you can use an app like Iconosquare to track comments and see which users are interacting with you the most.

sending DMs on IG

#6: Contact Your Followers on DM (Direct Messaging)

Something that goes hand-in-hand with interaction is using direct messaging (DM’s and same goes for Snapchat). You want to keep your account going with pictures as much as you can, but sometimes you want to save something for those followers who are your most loyal. This is where you want to utilize the DM’s to send those users something a little more special; something you’re not planning on sharing with the general public.

instagram contest

#7: Host a Contest

One of the best ways to encourage engagement is to host an Instagram contest for your followers. Not only will that get them excited, you can set rules that will help increase your following, such as having them tag a set number of friends to make their entry valid. Just make sure you make good on that contest and award the winner their prize, whatever that might be.

buy followers

#8: Never Buy Instagram Followers

Buying Instagram followers has received a lot of attention lately and while some people think it is a good idea, I’m not one of them. You see, you can get a nice chunk of followers for a decent price, but most of those supposed followers are inactive accounts. If your account shows that you have over 20,000 followers, but you have almost no follower interaction, it’s a sign to real users that your account is cheesy, possibly fake, and not worth checking out.

To be successful on Instagram, you want to stick with real followers and not give in to the temptation to bump up your numbers, so they look good on paper.

#9: Use Shoutouts

It’s just basic math: the more followers you can reach out to, the better for your brand. Shoutouts are another way to increase that following. Shoutouts are basically two users agreeing to give the other person a shoutout on their own account. This is a way to market yourself and get promoted to followers who may not be familiar with you.

The method of using shoutouts can definitely increase your follower count by thousands, so give it a try.

Conclusion: Instagram is a Great Tool for Web Cam Models

As a webcam model, a lot of your work will be in promoting yourself. Many models think that staying on their chosen camming platform will be enough to get them the money they want to make, but that just isn’t true. Any woman who wants to be truly successful in the cam world needs to work on cross-promotion to get themselves out there in the world.

Social media has exploded in the past few years and it remains one of the best ways to drive up interest in what you’re selling, which is essentially yourself. If you want a way to do it quickly, easily, and with a site that has tons of users, Instagram is the way to go.

Cam To Cam Advice

Today, even though there are many free group chat cam sites (you know, those Streamate gold shows), it’s still really, really popular for fanatics to want a one on one or cam to cam chat. That’s something that I get requests for pretty much daily. However, if you’re new to camming and consumers don’t know you, then you might not get as many requests initially. Regardless, you need to know how to handle the exclusive chats. I’ve provided you with some 1-on-1 chat advice if you plan on doing these types of shows (which you should)!

Cam To Cam Advice From An Active Model

I’ll kick this off by stating the obvious…camming isn’t always an easy job, even though many people don’t consider cam modeling an actual job at all! Well, I promise you, working as a webcam model is definitely a job and one that you have to do well to make decent money at if you hustle.

The question I get from a lot of girls looking at starting their cam career is, “How do I successfully do cam shows?” I mean, that’s pretty much your bread and butter and if you’re not doing it right, you’re not going to make bank. But, what is right?

If you’re considering becoming a cam girl and you’re curious as to how to do a cam show, keep reading to find out my “Do’s” and “Don’ts” of performing on your webcam so you’ll be the next sex kitten success.

How to Get Started-Set Up Your Equipment

Since camming is definitely a business (your business, isn’t that amazing?), you need the right equipment before you can even think about getting started. Before you can have world-class cam shows, you need a computer or laptop with high-speed broadband. The absolute minimum I would recommend would be 1.5Mbs, otherwise, your shows are going to lag, and clients are going to get cranky and leave.

The other obvious piece of equipment you need is a pretty good webcam. Don’t skimp here. In fact, if you want to up your game, get a few webcams that will show you from different angles and even better, get cams with remote control capability.

The more your clients can see and the more control you have of your best angles, the better your shows and the more moolah you’re going to make.

bedroom lighting

Figure Out Those Lighting and Camera Settings

What’s the most important thing? Well, it just may be cam girl lighting. Once you have your webcam and computer ready, you need to play around with settings and lighting.

Lighting is as important for a webcam model as a traditional fashion model. When you’re on the cam, you want to look your best and trust me, lighting can highlight your assets and hide those things you’re not as enthused with about your body.

Practice recording yourself and play around with color saturation, so you don’t look washed out. This is easily adjusted on your computer. And definitely avoid using natural daylight or direct artificial light-both make you either look too shadowed or too bright.

Choose Your Cam Site

This step is a little trickier, especially because there are so many cam sites out there. There are many things to consider when you choose a site, including:

  • Pay-per-minute vs. Tips-based
    • Tips-based sites are a great way to get your feet wet in the camming world, but you’re totally dependent on people showing up when you’re there. Pay-per-minute sites are typically for girls with a following of steady clients that pretty much arrange their schedules around the shows.
  • Larger established site vs. Smaller, lesser-known site
    • Big sites have a ton of girls and a ton of competition. Smaller sites just don’t always have the traffic. You want to find a site that has a nice balance.
  • Consider fetish work
    • Girls that have a particular marketable fetish often have an easier time finding a place for themselves on the bigger sites. Men like women that aren’t afraid to be a little kinky, so definitely give it some consideration.

Once you have decided on a cam site, you’ll want to set up your profile. You want to stand out from the crowd, and this is where you’ll do that.

Make sure that you complete the profile in full and make it fun and flirty, choose an easy to remember username, and seriously consider having pro pictures taken of yourself to upload.

This is your introduction to your potential clients, and you want to lure them in, so they’ll watch your shows and hopefully get hooked on you!

Finally, I always make sure to list the things I won’t do on my cam shows in my profile. Look, you’re going to get some really weird guys.

These guys are totally going to want you to do things you’re not comfortable with, so its best to head that off at the pass as much as you can. Make sure you’re direct and never feel badly if you don’t feel comfortable doing something on your show.

showtime

It’s Showtime!

Now that you’ve got all your ducks in a line, it’s time for that cam show to get rolling. You’re going to be nervous; we all are during our first few shows.

This is totally normal and before long, you’re going to be a pro that doesn’t get those nervous butterflies anymore, and instead, you’re going to be addicted to the accolades you’re going to get.

The best way to get yourself acclimated to being sexy on camera is to adopt a persona that isn’t “you”. I mentally give myself a sexy name and alter-ego that just makes men melt. Adopt a naughty version of yourself and you’ll be amazed how it increases your on-screen confidence.

I also like to get props, such as sex toys, sexy outfits, and lingerie, experiment with wigs, glasses, and makeup, and as much as I hate to say this, I make sure that my work area is clean, neat, and looks inviting.

Do not try to do your shows in a dirty room with clothes everywhere and looking like you’re a slob. No guy is turned on by that; remember, they’re paying for a fantasy and you need to keep that fantasy going.

Here are some other “Do’s” I would recommend when you’re doing your cam shows:

  • Smile and stay positive
    • Yes, this seems simple, but many girls go into this so nervous that they don’t remember to smile. More smiles equal more tips/pay, trust me on this one. And unless your fetish work/persona involves being stern, mean, or dominant, keep an upbeat attitude as well.
  • Make a plan
    • Just like any other job, camming requires some preparation for your shows. This includes what things you’ll do (or not do), what toys you have available, and what things you’ll offer (games, high tip prizes, videos, photos). Disorganized shows don’t get repeat clients.
  • Move around
    • Sitting like a brick is not a turn on. Guys want to see a real woman and they want to see your body. Touch yourself, giggle, flip your hair, put those boobs into their faces. Do whatever works!
  • Wear what you’re comfortable in
    • If you’re not comfortable in super slutty looking clothing, don’t wear it. Your clients will pick up on that. Consider dressing for the persona you’ve created, like a tomboy would wear sports jerseys and knee-high socks, or if you’re nerdy, wear fandom clothes and nerd glasses. Experiment with what works for you.
  • Encourage your clients to ask for what they want
    • Some guys are shy and need to be drawn out of their shells so its great to make yourself feel approachable. Encourage them to ask you to do things.
  • Have water ready
    • You’re going to be talking A LOT. You’re going to get super thirsty. Having water, or whatever beverage you enjoy, on hand, will make that a much easier thing to deal with and you won’t have to get up and leave your show, which is a huge tip killer.

Now that you’ve gotten the “Do’s,” here are some “Don’ts” for cam shows.

  • Don’t overdo it with drinking on camera
    • Girlfriend, a drunk cam show is a no-no. Yes, you’ll feel more relaxed and you may do more in a show, but you might also do things you’re not ok with or you might blackout. Definitely avoid too much of the alcohol.
  • Don’t be afraid to say no
    • While I recommend encouraging men to ask you for what they’d like to see done, I do this with an asterisk. Don’t feel like you have to do things you aren’t comfortable doing and if someone gets abusive, block them.
  • Don’t overpromise
    • If you start promising men that you’ll do this, that, and the other and something happens that makes it impossible for you to accomplish what you’ve promised, you’re underdelivering and I promise you that you’ll lose clients. Only promise things you can actually get done.
  • Don’t move too fast
    • If you are having a show and you do everything you’re asked without a little buildup, do you think men will get excited and stick around, which means you’ll earn more money? The answer is, “No”. If men are given everything they want right away, they leave. There is no incentive to stick around. Go slow, but not too slow. Guys that are bored will leave too.

Don’t Forget…

Every cam girl started somewhere, and nobody knew everything from the start. There is a definite learning curve that every single cam model has to go through and you’re going to make mistakes. However, if you remain patient, respectful, and you continue to improve yourself and your shows, there is no doubt that you’ll become a successful cam model.

How To Be A Successful Non-Nude Cam Model

Non Nude Webcam Models

Although it’s a fact that most cam models show nudity at some point in their career, there are also plenty of non-nude cam models out there. I’ll let you know right now that it can be a struggle to succeed as a non-nude model, but it’s most definitely possible. As I’ve mentioned in previous articles, the most important thing is that you’re comfortable with what you’re doing. If you’re doing something that you’re not comfortable with or that you just can’t get yourself into, it’s gonna show in your performance. And there’s nothing that’ll turn a guy off more than watching you do anything on cam when it’s obvious you aren’t actually enjoying it.

It’s definitely harder to become a successful non-nude model than it is a nude model. Although many guys truly enjoy chatting and interacting with you as a person, most also enjoy it even more when you’re naked. 😛 But although you may struggle at the beginning of your career, things will start to get much easier for you as you go on. You’ll start to develop relationships with your fans. You’ll start to notice regulars coming into your room every day to hang out with you. These are really the people that will help you succeed as a non-nude model. Some days, especially when you’re first starting out, you might not have a lot of fans in your room. This can be frustrating when you see a nude model with hundreds of guys watching her. But you have to stay positive. Don’t give into the pressure and do something that you aren’t comfortable with. Stand up for your morals and for what you believe in. If you’re truly enjoying what you’re doing, the fans will come and turn into regulars for you.

Many models who decide to remain non-nude, take on some kind of niche. One of the most popular ones right now is femdom. This is basically where you, as a female, take on a dominant role. There are some models who are femdoms who will eventually show nudity to their most loyal followers, but many never do. Their followers get off on being told what to do by a dominant female. And if they do what you say like a good little boy, there are plenty of other ways to reward them then by showing them your nude body. Although I personally don’t focus on femdom, I have dabbled in it at a few points in my career. I’ve found that some guys are really into NOT seeing you naked. They simply love the tease. These kinds of guys will lose interest in you once they see you naked. These obviously aren’t the majority of guys out there, but you will definitely find some. And they can be the most loyal followers of all sometimes.

So besides going down a route like femdom, some non-nude models are simply there for chatting and friendship. Many guys who frequent cam sites are looking to chat with a beautiful model… someone that they’d maybe be too intimidated to talk to in real life. Even for me, as a nude model, I’ve found that my biggest fans prefer my shows where I just tease, tell stories, talk about what I did that day, and similar stuff to that. I found these guys without even being non-nude. If you put it out there through your show descriptions, video titles, and keywords that you’re a non-nude model, you’ll attract these kinds of guys easily.

I know that I’ve said this in multiple articles, but no matter what you’re doing or showing on cam, your personality is really what attracts the most amount of people. Your personality and overall attitude is also what makes your fans want to come visit you over and over again. So whether you get naked or not on cam, it’s important to have a positive attitude and just be friendly to everyone.

Couples Guide To Camming

Camming as a Couple

If you decide to cam with a male partner, there’s some things that you’ll need to work out before you even get started. Some sites only allow female models, so you’ll need to find a site that works best for you and your partner that allows males to cam. Finding a site to cam on is the easy part. There are some legal things that both you and your partner should discuss and take care of before you do your first shows together. Even if you’re gonna be camming with a boyfriend, husband, or someone else that you really trust, it’s still very important to cover anything that could come up and make sure you both are protected. Also, just figuring out what you’re gonna do on cam can really take some time to figure out.

As I said, there are some cam sites out there that only allow female models. If you’re gonna be camming with a male partner, one of the most popular sites is Chaturbate. They’re one of the highest ranked cam sites and get a ton of traffic every day. Most couples seem to do the best on the site, even sometimes exceeding solo female cam models. Another good site for couples is Streamate. Chaturbate and Streamate are very different cam sites, but they both allow male/female couples to cam together. When you first start camming, I’d suggest trying out both sites to see the style of cam site that you guys prefer. Chaturbate is a site that allows public shows. This means that you’ll likely set a goal and then perform your show in public for everyone to watch once the goal is met. On Streamate, you can’t show nudity in public chat. So you’ll raise money in advance and then be taken into a private room where only those who tipped into your show can actually watch. Both have their pros and cons, so it’s ultimately up to you.

Discussing all the boring legal stuff is a must do before you start camming with a partner. It’s important to protect yourself just in case something does end up happening and you guys get into an argument about it. You should make sure you have a copy of each other’s ID’s, along with a photo of them holding their ID next to their face. You should also discuss and put into writing who owns the content from your shows or videos and what you each can do with that content. If you start to sell it on a clip site without your partner’s permission, that could turn into a really big problem for you guys in the future, especially if you haven’t put into writing how much each person gets from each sale. Speaking of how much each person gets, that’s something else that should be put into writing before you guys jump on cam together. Are you going to be splitting your earnings equally, whose name is the camming account going to be under, who owns the content and what can they do with it, when will you both get paid? All very important things to consider. Obviously whoever puts their name on the camming account is gonna be getting the check/payment sent to them. So do you plan on paying your partner right after your shows or waiting until you get paid and then splitting it? How do you plan on paying the other person: check, cash, Payoneer, etc.?

The two of you should also discuss what exactly you’ll be doing in your cam shows. Be open with your partner. Let them know your limits and things that you aren’t comfortable doing. And be sure that they let you know the same things. You’re gonna be working very closely with this person, so you guys need to be open about your feelings and thoughts when it comes to performing together. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, never do something you’re uncomfortable with. Don’t let your partner pressure you into doing something that you don’t want to. It’s very important that you make it very clear what you don’t want to do, that way there won’t be any misunderstandings while on cam. Could you imagine how awkward that could be? 😛

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.
