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!
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.
