Keeping Your Fans Interested

Keep your Fans Interested

​One of the most important things to becoming a successful cam model is knowing how to keep your fans interested. This usually takes some work and you more than likely will have to try out different things before figuring out what works for you. But once you do, you’ll start to notice more people showing up in your cam room, more interactions between you and your fans, and your own work day will go by much faster and be much more enjoyable.​

When potential fans first enter your cam room, they notice your general appearance. Making sure you have a look that’s appealing to the types of guys you want to draw in is very important. If you’re into dominating men, you probably don’t want to be dressed like a schoolgirl, sitting there giggling and teasing. Give off the vibe that you’re trying to bring in. The second thing that they’ll most likely notice is your cam room in general. Have it set up to match whatever it is that you’re into and the kinds of shows that you do. Guys are more likely to be interested in your shows and feel more attached to you if the entire environment that they’re watching you in is set up in a way that makes them feel like they’re really there.

Simply chatting and genuinely looking interested in what others are saying to you is incredibly important. If you’re just sitting there in silence looking bored, your fans are gonna get bored too. But if you’re engaging in conversation, even if it’s just with yourself, they’re more likely to want to stick around and hear you out. Members who chat with you are sometimes just as good as paying members. Your work day will fly by when there’s people to chat with in between shows. So make sure you interact with any member who’s trying to chat with you. Plus, just because they don’t have money today, doesn’t mean they won’t be back with some in the future. If you write them off right away, they may never be back.

Don’t just sit there! Get up and move around! A fairly common mistake that new cam models make is not teasing. Teasing shouldn’t make you feel like you’re giving too much away for free. Instead think of it as marketing. Every second that you’re on cam, you’re marketing yourself. Are you more likely to watch the kitten in the pet store that’s sleeping, or the one that’s running around playing? Even if you need a break and are just hanging out or relaxing, you can still move around a little bit to make sure you don’t look bored or put out.

It’s also important to actually focus on your chat room. If you’re constantly on your phone or checking other websites, it’s gonna be obvious. Your fans want your attention. They don’t want to watch a cam model who isn’t even interested in what she’s doing or what they have to say. That’ll just make them feel like you don’t have time for them or won’t be willing to listen to them when they try to explain what they want to see in a show. Little things come up from time to time that you have to check, just make sure you don’t spend too much time on them. If your room is dead and you decide to use that time to fill out raffle tickets or something, still make sure you’re looking up at your chat frequently and interacting with new members who come in or anyone who tries chatting with you.

The final piece of advice for keeping your fans interested in your cam shows is to switch things up a bit. Don’t always do the exact same show over and over again. If you work on Streamate, maybe you’re having a day where you just focus on gold shows. If you make every gold show exactly the same, you won’t get any repeat customers. Instead switch your topic every show and try to do something a little different. Maybe start with a show focused on a blow job, then a fingering show, then a show with different toys. Or if you want to do everything in each show, switch up the order in which you do things to make the show seem a little different. Diversity is good, and will lead to customers wanting to watch all of your shows since they know they’ll get a unique experience each time.

Protecting Yourself On Cam

Protecting yourself on Webcam

​Protecting yourself while on cam is extremely important. From your real name to where you live, it’s completely up to you what information you decide to share with your fans. Definitely make sure you have a clear plan in action before getting on cam for the first time of what you’re comfortable sharing and what information you want to keep private. I’m gonna go over some different things to consider in this article, but keep in mind that this is the internet and you are being broadcast in front of hundreds or even thousands of people. Even if you do everything that you can to protect your identity, the possibility is always there for family, friends, or potential employers to find out what you do online.

There are lots of different things that you can be doing in order to protect yourself. The first is picking out your stage name. You shouldn’t use your real name on cam. Pick out a name that you like. This is your chance to be called whatever you want! If you decide to cam with a friend, make sure they know not to call you by your real name. It can be easy to slip up, so just watch out.

Some models are comfortable giving out their location, while others are not. This is completely up to you. If you decide not to share your location, there are some extra things to consider. One big give away of where you live could be sports teams that you root for. Even if you tell your fans that you used to live there and now you moved, it could still compromise things. You also have to be careful when posting on social media. Don’t mention events or places that you’re gonna be attending. That could be another sign of where you’re from. You could even end up with a stalker this way that follows you home… who knows.

Most cam and clip sites offer some form of regional blocking. Regional blocking allows you to block certain countries, states, cities, or even zip codes from viewing your cam shows. If you’re worried about friends, family, or just people in your area finding out what you do, you should probably set up regional blocking. Although this sounds like it would completely protect you, it doesn’t. There are hacks around it, such as someone using an IP address from somewhere that you don’t have blocked. Someone watching your shows could also secretly record them and post them on a tube site or somewhere else on the internet. If your content gets pirated and posted somewhere without your knowledge, you won’t be able to block regions on that site and someone you know may stumble upon it.

Keep your personal life and camming life separate. Create a new email address specifically for camming before you start. Never use your personal email or have it attached in any way. You should also make sure you protect your address on your wishlists. Either have it kept hidden from your wishlist or use a PO Box to get your fan mail. One thing that a lot of cam models don’t think about is photo cross-referencing. If you post a photo on one of your personal social media accounts, you should not post that picture on anything related to your camming. Someone could do a Google search of that photo and cross-reference it back to your personal account.

What you decide to share is up to you. Do whatever makes you feel comfortable, but be safe about it. Even if you feel fine with sharing a lot of your personal life, use common sense to know when it’s enough. I hope this article hasn’t scared anyone. It wasn’t meant to scare you, but more to make you aware of things you absolutely need to consider before deciding if this is the right career for you.

Succeeding As A Cam Model

How to Succeed as a Webcam Model

​There are many factors ​that play into being a successful cam model. With dedication, a fun personality, and some practice, anyone can be successful if they want it bad enough! Your attitude on cam really plays a big role in your success. No one wants to watch a cam model who doesn’t seem like they enjoy what they do. You want to get your fans aroused, not make them feel bad for you. Sure there are some models who bring on the tears just to make people feel bad and tip them, but that’s just a temporary fix and those models usually end up quitting anyways.

Aside from your general demeanor, it’s also important to build relationships and friendships with your fans. Although there are plenty of guys who will come visit you for their quickie and just want to see you naked and masturbating for them, many guys want more than that. Of course it’s important to only do what you’re comfortable with. I’m not saying share your entire life with these kinds of guys… but it’s definitely important to be real and more than just a sex object. Fans really can become friends. Maybe not in the conventional way, but successful cam models build strong bonds with certain fans. You’ll start to have inside jokes, and it can really improve your work day and make your cam room a lot more fun in general.

Everyone has the occasional bad day. Sometimes it’s best not to cam on days like this. Although it’s important to be real and genuine with your fans, and being in a bad mood happens to everyone, it’s still probably not the best idea. When I’m having a bad day already, everything and everyone annoys me. The seasoned cam model can normally handle trolls with no problem, but their annoyingness is magnified by a million when you’re already in a bad mood. You may end up snapping at people and showing off a side of yourself that you’ll regret later. To keep with the realness, use social media to say how you’re feeling that day instead of going on cam. Social media is a great way to reach out to and connect with your fans on a personal level when you can’t be live on cam. Instead maybe work on something else that day, such as custom videos, new content, or editing. Or hell, just take a day for yourself to relax and unwind.

Another important thing that every successful cam models has to get good at, is saying no. If you don’t learn to say no right from the get go, you’ll have people walk all over you and try to take advantage of you. This can really put a bad taste in your mouth for camming and may ruin all the positive feelings you originally had for it. If you’re not comfortable doing something, just say no. If someone continually asks you to do something that you already said no to, block them. There’s no harm in doing this and you shouldn’t feel bad. Never look at saying no as missing out on money. There are plenty of other customers out there who will make up for that one person. Instead of looking at it as a lost opportunity, look at it as an opportunity to stick around in free chat and maybe meet someone who you do vibe with instead that you might have missed if you were doing the show you’re uncomfortable with.

Although these are just some of the factors that play into being a successful cam model, they’re all very important. Successful cam models are also unique and innovative. Make yourself stand out from everyone else. Don’t be afraid to try new things. And most importantly, just have fun. If you’re not having a good time, it’ll show in your work. If you truly enjoy your job as a cam model, you’re already on the road to success!

Making The Most Out Of Sexting

Webcam Models and Sexting

Now that you’re a cam model, what should you do next? Don’t just stop at camming… broaden your horizons! Expanding your business past just camming is what many successful models do. There are lots of different ways to do this: starting your own website, offering custom content, and even sexting!​ Sexting and phone sex is becoming more and more popular. There are lots of different sites out there that offer an easy way for you to sext your fans without having to give out your phone number or compromise your security.

On all of the sexting and adult phone call sites out there, they keep your personal phone number and the fans who are contacting you personal phone numbers completely private. They are able to do this with a routing system that takes the messages sent back and forth and making them come from an anonymous phone number. This way you can’t be tracked and your fan’s number is also secure. This can be done for both texting messaging and actual phone calls. The only thing you’ll want to do is make sure your voicemail doesn’t mention your actual phone number. That way if a fan calls you and gets sent to voicemail, they’re just hear some kind of generic message and not get your actual number.

Setting yourself up on the various sexting platforms is super easy, and there are lots of different choices out there for the site you decide to stick with. You can even feature yourself on multiple sites to increase your earnings if you want. But more goes into it than just getting approved and setting up your profile. It’s important to follow some pretty simple steps in order to get the most out of sexting and to be successful at it.

All of the various sites have different features, but one of my favorite features is being able to see how many credits on the site each member who’s connected with you has. This makes it easier to decide which members are a waste of time and which ones might actually chat with you. It’s especially useful if you have your phone number set to free and just charge per message they open from you. When your number is free, any member can ‘connect’, but that doesn’t mean they’ll actually chat with you. Some guys don’t understand how the site works and think they’re collecting hundreds of model’s phone numbers for free, not realizing they can’t do anything with them unless they pay per message. So being able to track how much money each user has on the site can really be a time saver. So that’s basically the first tip that I have… check credit amounts before spending too much time continuously messaging everyone who connects with you.

With that said, you should at least send some kind of hello message to everyone when they connect. Even if they don’t have any credits, they might be intrigued by your message and buy credits so that they can see what it says. And once you’ve roped them in, they might just become a repeat customer. Usually what I like to do is send them a short hello message thanking them for connecting and say that I hope I hear from them soon. Then I’ll send some kind of sexy teaser picture. I’ll even sometimes say something after the picture like, “If you like what you see, let me know so I can send more ;)”. If the person doesn’t have any credits on the site, I’ll usually just send the initial hello message. But if they have a decent amount, I’ll do the follow up ones to see if I can really engage them.

It’s also important to hold your customer’s interest without giving too much away at once. Don’t send them your most provocative picture right off the bat. Ease them into it with some flirty messages and pictures first. Make them want to see a little more at a time until they’re totally hooked on you. Make sure you’re engaging. Get to know the person and let them get to know a little about you. Many guys want to do some normal, everyday chat in between sexting. And also make sure you reply to their messages at a timely manner. They might message you on their lunch break or something and if you don’t get back to them until they have to start working again, they might lose interest by the time they can check their messages.

Just have fun with sexting and follow my simple tips. You’ll find that you can make a lot of extra income from it without having to do a lot of work.

Types Of Cam Shows

Different types of cam shows for webcam models

​Depending on the site that you cam on, there are different types of cam shows you can offer your fans. ​It’s completely up to you which kind of shows to offer on each site. In most cases, you can set your own price either per minute for different shows or have a flat fee that each fan has to contribute in order to watch the show. So let’s go over the different show types:

FREE CHAT/PUBLIC CHAT
Every cam site has a free or public chat, but they all have different guidelines for what you can and cannot do while in public. Essentially this chat mode is free to any member or guest (although you can turn guests off on some sites, such as Streamate). You can still get tips while in public chat though. So, like I said, the rules for what you can get away with in public chat vary by site. Some sites such as Streamate don’t allow any nudity below the waist in public chat. You can shows your titties, but no pussy or asshole shots allowed! Other sites such as Myfreecams, don’t have restrictions for public chat. On sites like this, most girls will set a goal while in public chat and accept tips until they reach that goal. Once the goal is met, they’ll perform a show for everyone right there in public chat.

PRIVATE SHOW
Despite the name, private shows usually aren’t exactly private. On some sites like Streamate, one member will take you private and pay your per minute price for the whole time he’s in that private session with you. But other members can enter that same private chat and join in on the show. They have full access to everything that original member does. The private ends either when you end it or when all members leave the private. A private show is a little different on Myfreecams. Only one member can take you private and they pay MFC’s set per minute price. Other members can join in, but they only join as spies. This means they can watch the show, but they cannot chat with you or hear anything you’re saying. They pay a lower per minute rate, which is also set by MFC.

EXCLUSIVE/TRUE PRIVATE
Although they have different names depending on the site you’re on (exclusive on Streamate, true private on Myfreecams), these shows are the same thing. When a fan takes you into an exclusive or true private chat session, it’s just the two of you. No one else can enter and no one can spy on the show. MFC sets the per minute price for you, but many models require the member to tip a certain amount before the true private to show they won’t just take them and leave them after a minute or two. You set your own exclusive price per minute on Streamate, and it’s generally higher than your private rate since it’s a one-on-one show. You can also offer block sessions on Streamate for exclusive and private shows. With these, the member pays for a certain block of time in advance (5 minutes, 10, minutes, 20 minutes, etc.). They’re charged the full amount right away and you’re paid that amount as long as you don’t end the session early.

GROUP SHOW
Group shows exist on various sites, including Myfreecams. Basically at least three members have to request a group show from you before you can actually enter a group chat. More members than that can join, but three is the minimum to get things started. Once in group chat, everyone watching the show pays a small per minute price, set by MFC. You can end the show whenever you want, or else it ends automatically once all paying members leave the chat.

GOLD SHOW
A gold show is a special show on Streamate. Similar shows exist on other sites as well, but have different names. With a gold show, you set a topic letting your fans know what you plan on doing in the show, a goal for how much you want to raise in order to do the show, the minimum amount each member has to tip in order to watch the show, how long of a show you’ll do, and how long your members have to collectively get you to your goal. During the countdown process, members tip the minimum or higher to be able to watch the show. Every member that tips will get to see your show if you decide to start it. If you hit your goal or get close enough that you decide you want to start it, all of those members who tipped the minimum or higher get taken into a private chat where they can watch you perform. Even after the show starts, more members are free to tip in and join as well.

Getting The Right Look

The right look for Webcam Models

​When you think of a model, you probably picture women who are tall, thin, with long flowing hair, perfect skin, perfect teeth, perfect everything! The good thing about being a cam model is that you don’t have to live up to those impossible standards in order to be successful. Cam models come in all shapes, sizes and styles. No matter what you look like, there will be plenty of guys who are into you. But with that said, your appearance is still an important part of your job. If you feel confident, it’ll show through in your cam shows. You’ll be much more successful if you feel good about yourself.

You should always do whatever makes you feel comfortable. If you like to grow out your pubic hair, then grow it out. Don’t let a troll come into your room and pressure you to shave it. Whatever makes you feel the best about yourself, is exactly what you should do. It is important to look put together. Brush and style your hair before getting on cam. There may be a day here and there where you don’t have the time to make your look complete, but the majority of the time you should look neat. Your fans don’t want to see you looking a hot mess. 😛

Camming makeup is different than everyday makeup. It can be much more fun! You don’t want to overdo it, but you really can play around with bold looks on cam and still not look ridiculous. If it’s your first time on cam or if you want to experiment with a look, put your makeup on while watching yourself on cam. Don’t actually stream your cam, but just have it run on your computer so you can see what different looks will look like. You’ll often find that you look different on cam than you do in real life. Makeup that might make you look like a cheap hooker, could look really pretty, bold and interesting on cam.

You’re of course free to change up your look at any time, but most models will find a look that works for them and stick to it. You might throw some of your fans off if you start camming with black hair, thick black eyeliner, dark red lipstick, and pale skin and then show up on cam the next day with bleach blonde hair and a spray tan. You have to remember that your fans first started watching you because they liked your look. When they’re browsing through models, that’s the first thing that they notice… your look, not your personality. Your great personality is of course what makes them stick around, but they were originally drawn to you because they liked your style.

Maintaining your body hair is also important. Although some cam models choose to skip shaving and grow everything out, most at least keep their legs and underarms smooth. It can definitely feel like a chore sometimes, but it’s something you really should maintain. It’s completely up to you which method of hair removal you choose: shaving, waxing, or laser hair removal. All have their pros and cons. Shaving can be tedious and you may end up with irritated skin or red bumps from ingrown hairs. Waxing can be painful and may also irritate your skin, making it look red or blotchy. Laser hair removal can also be painful if you have sensitive skin. The treatments can also add up, and sometimes not work for your hair type. Find a method that works for you and take your time with it so you don’t end up irritating your skin.

Hygiene Tips For Cam Models

Hygiene for Webcam Models

​Keeping up with your health and hygiene is incredibly important for anyone, but extra important for cam models. If your body isn’t healthy, you may not be able to work. There are lots of little tips and tricks that you can do to keep your body at it’s best.​ You really have to pay attention to everything that you put on and in (giggity) your body. From the type of soap you use to the material of toys you use, it’s important to know your own body and do everything you can to keep it healthy.

When first starting out as a cam model, it’s a good idea to get several toys that are all made out of different materials. Even if you just buy cheap ones at first, it’ll give you the opportunity to see which materials feel the best for you. You’ll also be able to find out if your body doesn’t react well to certain materials. Some models buy expensive toys right off the bat and then end up being allergic to them. They have to either throw them away at that point or put a condom over them. And let’s face it, guys don’t want to see you fucking a dildo with a condom on it.

After finding out which materials work best for you, keeping up with cleaning your toys is incredibly important. You should clean your toys every single time that you use them. Some toys such as glass ones and silicone ones can be boiled. This will kill any germs and bacteria. But good old soap and water will do the trick too for most toys. Use a gentle soap and be sure to completely rinse your toys off after using soap. You don’t want to get that soap inside of you because it could lead to an infection. You also want to make sure you completely dry your toys after each washing. Leaving them wet could cause mold or bacteria to grow on them. When you aren’t using your toys, you should store them in a cool, dry place. Either space them out or get some kind of individual storage unit for each toy. You don’t want them touching each other. Some toys don’t react well when touched by other toys, and you may end up ruining them. There are also cleaners made specifically for toys. These are a good option too. Although you really should wash your toys after each use, some models use baby wipes to clean them off in between shows and then actually wash them or boil them at the end of the night. This isn’t a bad option, and baby wipes can really come in handy if you have toys that are particularly attracted to dust and fuzz.

Some models will do oil or lotion shows. Depending on the type of oil you use, it may not be the best idea to get any inside of your vagina. It may lead to an infection. The same goes for lotion. You should never put lotion inside of you. Some girls make the mistake of filling their squirting dildos with lotion. Terrible idea! Use watered down, plain yogurt instead.

If you do a lot of bath shows, you may also be susceptible to infections. To help prevent them, try using soaps and bubble baths from the baby aisle. These are specifically designed to be used on sensitive skin. You won’t have to worry about them irritating you. I also recommend using baby soap for shaving. It’ll help prevent irritation and leave your skin smooth and moisturized.

Another good habit to get into is showering after you’re done camming. If one of your toys or even your fingers were a little dirty, you’ll prevent anything from going wrong down there with a quick rinse off in the shower. Also, if you start to feel sore or swollen during your shows, take a little break or switch to a wand vibrator for awhile. The last thing you want is to be in pain while working or have to take the next day off because you went too hard the night before.

Being Smart With Your Contests And Raffles

Webcam Contests

To earn extra money and increase interaction with fans, most models will hold contests and raffles. These can be live on cam, through social media, or through your website. It’s completely up to you. Contests and raffles are a fun way to engage your fans and get them to participate in something together. But it’s important to be smart about the way you run your contests and what prizes you offer.

If you’ve ever watched any of the top cam girls, you may have seen them holding big contests and raffles with huge prizes. This makes sense for them to do because they have such a big following. But a rookie mistake that a lot of newer cam models make is offering unrealistic prizes to their fans. Once you’ve held a few contests and you can gauge the amount you think you’ll make based off of the interest of your previous contests, then you can start offering bigger prizes if you feel it’s worth it. Bigger prizes doesn’t always mean that you’re gonna have more interest shown in your contest. So if you offer a date, travel expenses, long custom, long Skype sessions, etc., you may end up dishing out more money than you make.

Some models that think it’s best to offer a huge prize without really having a large following will add a stipulation to the rules. It’s usually something like, “There’s no specific date that this contest ends. It ends once I raise x amount of dollars or get x amount of entries.”. This might seem like a good idea at first, but as the contest goes on and on and on, interest will die down. You may never reach your goal. And then you end up with the fans who did enter mad at you. It’s important to be reasonable with your expectations. Saying that you’ll only do the raffle if you sell a certain amount of entries isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But if you decide to do that, you should offer consolation prizes to those who did enter. If you’re not at least offering that, your fans will be skeptical about entering in the first place for fear that they won’t have a shot at winning anything. Or if you’re holding a monthly contest, you could always roll it over to the next month if need be.

Before you announce a new contest or raffle, make sure you establish all of the rules. Every cam model has trolls in their room who will try to find a loophole or try to confuse you so you agree to something that you don’t actually want to offer. So just be sure to spell out all of the rules and specifications beforehand.

Things to think about:

  • Can the same person win multiple prizes?
  • Do they have to specifically say in their tip note that their tip is for the raffle?
  • If you’re offering a custom video or Skype time, can it be split up into multiple sessions?
  • Are there any restrictions to what you’ll do in a custom or Skype show?
  • If your contest rewards the top tipper, is that the top overall tipper or highest single tip?

These are just a few of the things you should think of and plan out before officially announcing your contest. Just make sure all points are covered so there’s no confusion once the contest starts.
