Should I go independent or Not?

Livin’ that Indy Life

Should I go the independent webcam route? Whether this is something you’ve been asking yourself or not, it’s a valid question to bring up. When first considering delving into the Independent cam world, it can be an extremely daunting task. There are so many options out there and it can almost make it seem like you’re drowning.
That’s okay, having no idea where to begin is normal.

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this in other posts or not, but I highly recommend searching around and joining cam-girl forums to learn some tricks of the trade, and be able to connect and talk with other models in the industry who can help you along if you have any questions.

Start by setting yourself up on a directory site like cammodeldirectory.com or Livecammodelshows.com. If you’re wanting to be able to charge per minute without having them pre-pay in full skyprivate.com is another option. This is a great way to start building up your clientele through the traffic that the sites have on their own.
When I finally took the plunge and jumped into going Independent, I realized that I shouldn’t have waited so damn long in the first place. Honestly, I’ve never been happier. I was a strictly Streamate girl for a long time, and when the site started to be unreliable, I decided that even though it scared the piss out of me, I was going to bite the bullet and transition as much as possible into Indy. Take control of my own destiny and all that.

I started by talking to some of my other cam girlfriends who I knew were already offering Skype shows. They knew some of the things that would make me not such a bumbling idiot the first time I attempted a show. After they gave me some tricks of the trade, I signed up for Cammodeldirectory.com. I heard great things about them having their own traffic, and figured it would be a great way to start to build up my clientele. Then I started advertising on social media, and lo and behold I got my first show!

I was crazy nervous ya’ll, I’m not even kidding. Felt like a brand new baby cam-girl all over again, but I took deep breaths, a shot of tequila, put on some gangster rap and handled that sh*t.
Truth of the matter? It was fantastic, not only did I get to keep a much higher percentage from the show so I ended up making more, but it was so freeing to not have to worry about rules of the big box site that I normally cam on. After that first show I knew that I was an Indy whore for life. I love being able to just switch my skype availability and have show offers pop up. I can watch television, read, knit, whatever the hell I want, all while I wait for someone who wants a show. Sometimes I log on my big box site and make some money while I’m waiting for a skype show to come through! (Ah! The earning potential! I can’t handle it!)

Once you’ve decided on going forward with Indy camming, it’s worth it to create a payment portal for people to book Skype shows with you in advance. Personally, I use mysecretpayments.com. (….which I’ve just started using and am LOVING it!) Setting up a payment portal gives your followers on social media an easy way to book a show with you and pay without having to jump through a million different hoops.

On top of camming on Skype, I also do a lot of Snapchat premium sales and make content to sell independently. The less I have to depend on someone else for my streams of income, the better! (I especially recommend your own payment portal if you sell extras like this; snapchat, panties, signed photos/poster/calenders etc.)

All of that being said, if you don’t have a following independent of whatever site you’re camming on, going Indy can be a struggle at first (at least until you build up your clientele) so if you do decide on dipping your toe into the wonderful pool of Indy, (which I would if I were you) I would stick it out with the site you’re on now, as well. Make it a side ho’ first, and see how you get along with each other. Just like not all cam sites are created equal, neither are cam-girls experiences with Indy. I’ve heard my fair share of stories of models that both hated and loved it. It’s really all going to come down to your personal preference. All I’m sayin’ is .. If you like expanding your money making horizons, then give it a go. What’s the worst that is going to happen?

The Webcam Troll

Time wasters and Trolls on Webcam

We all know them and none of us love them. They are the notorious time wasters and trolls that come in and invade our lives and our cam rooms.

We’ll start with the easy. Time wasters are exactly what they sound like. Dudes that come into your room and gobble up your time for free like it’s an all you can eat buffet special. (Excuse me? No free refills here!) They will come in your room and I’ll be honest, some of them are downright friendly as hell. They’ll get you talking and hanging out, and before you know it, a week has gone by. Then, just when you feel like you could list off all of his hobbies in chronological order because he never shuts the F*$# up, you realize…. he’s never spent a dime. Not a single penny. What in the actual hell is life.

I would love to tell you that these are far and few between, but the fact of the matter is that you will probably deal with more time wasters than any other type of person combined. It is, unfortunately, just another part of the job, comes with the territory, so it’s best if you learn how to spot them and nip them in the bud right away.

I find that the easiest way to limit the freeloaders is to explain the rules of your room, or the rules of your show by using the peanut butter and jelly method. Don’t know what that is?
The Peanut Butter and Jelly method is a way to teach people how to do things in the most extremely literal sense possible. Things that most people would omit because they assume that it is common sense, all of a sudden don’t apply.

You do the method by having all the ingredients for a tasty pb&j. Subject A is going to make it while Subject B tells them how.

Subject B: “Get two pieces of bread”

You would think that would be enough, but since Subject A has to take every instruction literally and cannot do anything extra, they have no way to get the bread out of the bag. What Subject B should have said is:

“Untie the twist tie for the loaf of bread. Open the bag. Reach in the bag and grab 2 pieces of bread. Take the bread and lay it on the plate.” It’s the same analogy with listing out what is and what is not acceptable. For example: My public email is set to send an automatic response to every email it receives. The automatic response lists a separate email to send to if they are wanting to book a skype show or order a custom video. It lists out what the email should include and when they can expect a response in return. It also tells them where to go to get merchandise such as my snapchat, posters, panties etc. And different payment options.

I cannot even begin to explain to you how helpful this has been in saving me time and energy. If people aren’t serious about purchasing your product, they probably won’t take the type to type out ANOTHER email to send to a different source, or they won’t go to the site and actually purchase the item. It’s almost like a security blanket to the emails I do receive on my other account. I know that they are sincerely interested because they have taken the time to contact me where it was stated.

The other thing you need to watch out for is when regulars being time wasters. I wish that this never happened, but it does. They will start hanging out in your room, and I honestly think that sometimes they feel like they are your friend so they don’t need to tip anymore. They forget that you’re working. Take it as a compliment, you’re so damn good at hustling these guys that they forget you’re even doing a job! (But even when you take it as a compliment, remind them that they can either pay room rent or they can GTFO)

On top of the horrible time wasters, you can also count on the notorious trolls to come through with their talons, trying to bash everything in sight and leave you in a bloody, guts everywhere, heaping mess on the floor. Sometimes they are so good at finding that one thing that is your weak spot that it’s almost unbelievable.

The only thing that I can really tell you is that you need to develop a thick skin to be a cam model. There’s no way around it, if you are sensitive then they will sense it and they will come into your room, and they will eat you alive. You’ll be curled up in a crying, sobbing mess at the end of the night. You need to grow a pair, build up those walls and keep them reinforced with mother f*%$ing nuclear weapons. You cannot, I repeat, CANNOT give a damn about what other people are going to be saying about you. They will pick on everything, even if it isn’t true. IF you give them a reaction, then you are doing exactly what they want.

If you want to have some real fun with trolls, when they come in your room, play along with whatever they are saying. Turn it around on them so that your entire room is laughing at them. It works surprisingly well. The trolls either leave because you are un-trollable or sometimes (and this is my favorite) they turn into paying customers. Now I’ll drink to that. I’m all about them conversions, baby.

Keep in mind that both time wasters and trolls will always be a part of camming. Without them, we would take for granted the genuinely amazing clients that cross our paths. With them we are stronger and more bad ass bitches who ain’t nothin’ to F*%& with.

Games To Play With Your Fans On Cam

Webcam Games for Tips

​If you cam on a site that is set up like Myfreecams, where you spend the majority of your time in public chat waiting for tips to reach your goal, it’s definitely a good idea to play games with your fans. Not only will this make the time go by faster, but it encourages interaction between you and your fans. It’s fun for everyone! There are lots of different games that you can play. I’m gonna go over a few of the more popular ones in this article, but of course you can always be creative and come up with new games that you think your fans will like.

CARD GAMES

There are several card games that are easy to play while on cam. The first is Blackjack. When a fan tips to play Blackjack with you, all you have to do is shuffle the deck, deal a card to yourself face down, deal a card to your fan face up, deal another card to yourself face up, and another card to your fan face up. Your fan then gets to decide if they want to hit (take another card) or stay. The goal is to get as close to 21 as possible, without going over. If they go over, you automatically win. Once they’re satisfied with their hand and decide to stay, you flip over your face down card. Now it’s your turn to hit or stay to try and beat their score.

War or High/Low, is another easy card game to play on cam. All you do is shuffle the deck, draw a card for yourself and one for your fan. High card wins. Easy!

DICE GAMES

Dice games are also simple, yet fun to play with your fans. One of the most popular dice games is Spank Dice. It’s best to either use a 20-sided dice or several regular dice for this game. It’s up to you how you play it. One way is rolling the dice and spanking yourself the number of times that comes up. Another way would be if the number is odd, your fan loses and you don’t have to spank yourself. But if it’s even, you spank yourself that many times.

You can even play Yahtzee with your fans. You roll five dice and show them to your fan. They decide if they want to hold any dice and then you roll the other dice again. Repeat letting them hold or roll dice one final time. Depending on what they end up with, give them better prizes for a better hand: three of a kind, four of a kind, full house, small straight, large straight, Yahtzee.

WHEEL SPINS/GRAB BAG

Wheel spins or grab bag if you don’t have a wheel, is another fun way to entertain your fans. You can put anything you want as prizes. To make the game really interesting, you can even put bad things up as prizes. For example, start over the current goal countdown, add a certain number of tokens to the countdown, put back on an article of clothing, etc.

HANGMAN

Not as popular of a game, but still something to pass the time. Think of a word and draw out Hangman. When a fan tips to play, you give them a certain number of letters that they can guess per turn. If they think they know the answer, they can tip to guess. If the word is correctly figured out before you finish drawing hangman, everyone who participated gets a prize. You can announce the prize beforehand, or make things more interesting by having it be a random draw.

LUCKY NUMBER

Pick a random number between 1 and 100 (or whatever range you want). In order to guess a number, your fans have to tip that number. So if they want to guess 13, they tip you 13 tokens. Keep an updated list of the numbers that were already guessed so they aren’t guessed more than once. The person who tips the “lucky number” gets a prize.

NEVER HAVE I EVER

Never Have I Ever is a lot of fun! You can either buy the actual game or let your fan pick the “never have I ever” scenario. If you’ve done it, you take a sip of your drink. All of your fans can play along!

BALLOON POP

For Balloon Pop, you write different prizes on little pieces of paper and put them inside of balloons. You can make it completely random, or have certain color balloons have better prizes, and those cost more. When a fan buys one, you pick a balloon, pop it, and they win the prize inside.

The Sex Factor: An xHamster Original Series

The Sex Factor Series

If you’re looking for an sexy, entertaining new reality show to watch​, then you should definitely check out Sex Factor! Sex Factor is an xHamster original series that can be streamed online for free. Season one premieres on Thursday, May 19th at 1pm PST. If you’re looking to spice up your sex life, this show could definitely be fun to watch with your significant other. It’s basically a reality porn show with 16 amateur contestants who have never performed in porn before competing for $1 million and instant porn stardom! This isn’t your average TV show, they don’t leave anything to the imagination!

All of the hardcore action will be judged by five famous adult film stars: Lexi Belle, Tori Black, Asa Akira, Keiran Lee, and Remy LaCroix. Throughout the competition, the 16 contestants will find out just how hard it is to be an adult film star. They will take part in increasingly complex and explicit sexual challenges. Things get emotional at times as the contestants come to realize that the porn industry isn’t all fun and games… it’s actually a lot of hard work… no pun intended! 😉

The five judges not only work as judges, but as mentors and coaches to help the contestants through the different challenges and struggles that they’ll face throughout the competition. All of the judges agree that this is one of the coolest projects they’ve ever been a part of. They take a lot of pride in the fact that their judges, and are all excited to find the next big star in the porn industry. Seeing how much energy and enthusiasm the contestants put into everything, made it very difficult to send all but two of them home. But even though sending people home is never fun, watching the whole experience unfold is definitely entertaining for viewers.

The eight female contestants range from age 21 to 26. And the males are between the ages of 21 and 31. All 16 of them are amateurs. One of the requirements when trying out for the show is that you’ve never been in a formally produced adult movie. Even though season one is just premiering, they already have plans for season two of the show! Season two of Sex Factor kicks off with an open casting call at the AVN Awards in Las Vegas January 18th-21st, 2017.

You can find out a little more about each of the contestants by reading their individual bios. Almost all of them have Twitter accounts. Based off of the amount of Twitter followers each had, I’m pretty sure I already know the male and female winners. But don’t worry, I won’t spoil it for you. Who else is gonna be watching?!

The different types of Webcam Girls

webcam girl life

Different types of cam-girls.

The Anonymous Cam-girl: A model who likes to stay anonymous, log-on, make that money and then be done for the day. They may run a twitter account or an Instagram, but usually keep it private and don’t promote much, other than to have a place where their regulars and fans can find them and keep in touch outside of their cam times.

The “CeWEBrity” Cam-girl: A model that wants to create a brand and maximize earning potential/accessibility etc., by creating a demand for that brand.

Both types are bad ass bitches who hustle and make those dollar, dollar bills ya’ll (can I get an AMEN!?) However, for the sake of me saving you time (since we all know that time is money) I’m going to put a DISCLAIMER on this one.

This article is going to be focusing on branding; specifically through cross promotion, so if you’re wanting to slay that anonymous lifestyle, you might not find much to help you out here. (Except for the endorphins that reading this will no doubt create.)

Moving on….

In my opinion, cross promotion is hands down one of the most important aspects to branding and all around brand awareness, which will result increased sales of your product. (Your product being your content, your cam shows and most important of them all: YOU)

Personally, I am on the following social medias:

*Twitter

*Instagram

*Snapchat

*Periscope

*Tumblr

I know what some of you are thinking. Why so many? That sounds like it will take a lot of time that could be spent camming or doing other things. While I agree that it is time consuming (and secretly I hate all social media) it’s a necessary evil to both the demand and accessibility of your brand.

If you aren’t already, I highly recommend being on every platform possible. (save for Facebook, but that’s a whole different article)

This brings me to my next point. The basics of economics, supply and demand. The supply is your product and the demand is created by you.

In this day and age, and especially in the adult industry you MUST create your own demand. Nobody else is going to do it for you, and this is a situation where the phrase “I get out of it what I put into it” should be your mantra.

Nobody knows what they want to buy until you tell them. Why is the iPhone so popular? They build up to the release date. Apple creates the demand and then supplies the product. You should be doing the same thing and the way to do it is free. Cross Promotion.

Here’s an average day for me on social media:

Step 1.) Say good morning on Snapchat and let them know I’ll be on Periscope in 10 min (insert Periscope name and twitter handle so they know where to go)

Step 2.) Get on Periscope and live broadcast for a few minutes. Right when I am about to log off I tell them to follow me on Snapchat if they want to see what I’m doing through the day. If I’m about to go live on cam I tell them where they can go sign up to keep hanging out with me. (Make sure you aren’t spamming, the key is subtlety.)

Step 3.) Log onto Twitter and have promoters RT “Live Periscope stream” and quote the tweet myself saying if they missed me, to follow so they catch it next time! This will get more people to re-play my broadcast, give me hearts and increase my popularity making the broadcast reach more people.

Step 4.) Post a pic on Snapchat saying the same thing “Miss me on Periscope? Broadcast is still available! Go watch it now!”

Step 5.) Save the pic from Snapchat and post on Instagram telling them to follow my twitter and add me on Periscope so they can talk with me live.

Step 6) Posting on Snapchat/Twitter/Instagram through the day with links to where they can find me on other platforms. (Ex. Post a pic on Twitter and write the link to your instagram. Post a pic on Instagram and tell them where to find you on Twitter.)

Step 7.) End the night with an after cam session on Periscope. (these can be quick. 5-10 minutes) Saying goodnight, having inside jokes with the guys who were hanging out in my cam room.. Creating demand of people wanting to have the same type of “friendship” with me.

… you get the idea. Everything is connected and people want to feel like they know you. Branding is all about injecting personality in a product and YOU are the product that you will be convincing them to invest in. (and yes, I use the word invest. To you it’s a purchase.. To everyone who is parting with that $10-$50-$100, it’s an investment of their money to receive something they are hoping will be worth it in the long run, and will continue to invest in if it is. There is an initial risk factor for the buyer that should always be taken into consideration.)

All of that being said, there are a few important things to remember. You MUST master the art of subtle selling. Don’t push it in their faces, and don’t only post links to where they can purchase products. People don’t invest in desperation, the invest in something that everyone wants.

The trick is to create the illusion that everything is their idea, while always keeping it fresh in their minds. Subliminal Perception, if you will. Ever hear about how back in the old days they would insert quick flashes of Coca-cola products or a picture of popcorn in movie previews? It would happen so fast you wouldn’t consciously know that you were seeing it, however some studies showed that it would increase the volume in sales at the concession stands. They did the same thing in World War II, with subliminal messaging by using a tachistoscope (a machine that projects images extremely briefly and rapidly) to teach soldiers how to spot enemy planes.

Cross promotion is, in essence, the same idea. By constantly putting yourself in their faces, it will create a sense of familiarity in their mind. You’ll notice people start to WANT to see you in their faces, so much so that they will start putting you in OTHER peoples’ faces, who will then want to find out more about you and see if they also want you all up in their grill. Alas, with cross promotion you have created a virtual snowball effect.

Damn, see all that demand? You created that ish. Now be proud and keep yourself there.

Show me your Tits BB

please show tits bb

Nothing is free on Webcam.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, and I’ve heard it a thousand times before. “The best things in life are free.” In real life? Maybe. (although I’m going to come in with a strong #debatable). In Cam life? NOTHING IS FREE.

Let’s just get all of the silly questions out of the way now, so we can delve into the truth of the subject.

“What about smiles?” … While it’s true that smiles may not be paid for with cash, tokens or gold (Although it might work if you DO charge for it) they are most certainly paid for with your soul that will inevitably be sucked out piece by excruciating piece from dealing with the gigantic F*$% Boys that you have to deal with on a daily basis. (“Ass BB.. Open tits BB.. Show me a preview and then Private BB)… but I digress.

“If I tease for free then maybe they will pay for it!” Nope. No. NOOOOO. Don’t fall into this trap, beauties. There is so much out there for you, and money is at the head of the pack. Would you ask a clothing store to give you a free shirt so you could test it out before you buy it? How about asking a restaurant if you could try a small version of their entrée dish for free? Pretty sure they would laugh in your face and walk away. At least, that’s what I would do.. In fact, it IS what I do anytime some entitled jerk comes into my cam room and tries to get the milk for free. Repeat after me, ladies and gents. “NO, the cow is NOT for sale and the milk is NEVER free.”

The fact of the matter is that you are providing a luxury service. The key word to remember there is LUXURY. If you are out of their price range than you are also out of their league. (Awe..can’t afford a show? Better start saving up to give yourself a nice big birthday gift!)

Here’s what you do. Sit down, write out a list of what you know you will get asked for and then price out what you’re comfortable charging for each individual thing. Don’t second guess yourself!! If you want to charge high, charge high! This ain’t Walmart, and you don’t need to roll back your prices. The way I see it, it’s better to start your prices higher and lower them if you need, rather than setting the bar low and having to explain to people why your prices are being raised.

Flash? $5

Spanks? $3/spank

Twerk? $15

Blocking them when they continue to try and get it for free? Priceless.

You get the idea. Don’t sell yourself short! If you have people trying to get things for free than you either convert them into a paying customer or you cut the gigantic, pathetic freeloading cord that is their life. (#ByeFelicia)

Have I drilled that into your head enough?

Good.

So here comes the other side of things. Some people that you’re going to encounter like to sip on that haterade that is their miserable existence and call it juice. These people will be climbin’ in your windows, snatchin’ that free pussy up, so ya’ll better hide your girls, hide your sin-caves and hide your emotions cause they monetarily rapin’ er’body up in here.

Common phrases include, but are not limited to:

“I’m just asking because OTHER models do it for this price.”

“If you showed more for free, then more people would tip in”

“But I’ve given you so much money already!”

“You’re expensive”

(Side note: If you didn’t read that in an obnoxiously whiny voice, take it back one time and try again)

If you haven’t already figured it out, these people are idiots. They aren’t worth your time, and more often than not they are either trying to get you to lose your cool, or they are honestly ignorant enough to believe that you would show them something for free… and for what? Because they think they deserve it? Girl, please. You control your room and if you give away the goose, you give away the gander. (The goose being YOU and the gander in this case being the control)

Let’s face it. This is a job that comes with the vulnerability of exposing parts of yourself that most people would never dream of exposing, let alone have the courage to show even their closest of friends. There is a risk involved, there is the knowledge that everything you do while the cam is turned on has the possibility of being posted on the internet ANYWHERE and being seen by literally ANYONE. (If you don’t think this is the case, you are severely naive, and I recommend you research some more about what career choice you’re making before deciding on anything.)

Taking all of these things into consideration, I think we can all agree that we have the right, NAY, the duty to charge for any and all of the services and products that we provide.

Including the pleasure of our sparkling personalities. 🙂

I’ll leave you with this. Ultimately, the decision whether to give away teases and freebies is up to you. It’s your world and we’re all just living in it. All I’m preaching here is that you should never let anyone devalue you as not only a product, but also as a model.

…and hey, I’m not saying to stand up and say to the world “I have the Pussy, so I make the rules. Pay to play or get the F*&$ out”

…but I’m also not NOT saying that.

CamCon 2016

​CamCon in Miami

For the third year in a row, a convention specifically for cam models is being held in Miami, Florida! ​The event is called CamCon! It’s an international convention where models, mobile apps, websites, studio partners, and even fans come together to network and have an amazing time in a beautiful city! The third annual CamCon is being held at the SLS South Beach hotel from May 31st until June 3rd. Over 125 models have already registered and the event is more than a month away!

Besides staying in a beautiful hotel with other people who are in the same line of business as yourself, there are also seminars, Industry Day, Fan Day, poolside hangouts, and several parties! Everything is optional, so you can choose what you want to do and what you’d prefer to skip. Whether you’re new to camming or a veteran, attending a few seminars is never a bad idea. You’ll learn new things you didn’t know and be entered into fun raffles for attending.

Industry Day is gonna be poolside this year, so bring your bikini! It’s being held on Wednesday, June 1st. Models will have a chance to walk around and visit different booths. You’ll learn more about what each company does and how they can help you make more money. Most of the vendors have goodies that they give away also! Attending Industry Day is a great way to network with companies that help cam models improve their business, shows, and gain more fans.

Fan Day is a ton of fun! It’s gonna be on Thursday, June 2nd this year. Attending Fan Day is optional, but highly recommended! If you’re staying in the main hotel (SLS South Beach), you automatically get a booth for Fan Day. If you’re staying somewhere else, you can still purchase a booth for $100. Fans will be able to purchase tickets and attend Fan Day so they can have a chance to interact with you and all the other models at the event. Even if you’re new to camming and don’t have a lot of fans yet, it’s still a great marketing tool to have a booth. You can give away/sell autographed photos, business cards, and other goodies. If you decide to bring your own laptop, you can even cam from Fan Day as long as you don’t show any nudity. 😛 As a way to make some extra money and draw excitement to the event, some models hold raffles and pick a random winner to buy a ticket for Fan Day so they can come and meet you. Some models will even do raffles for a dinner or beach date during CamCon. If you do decide to do something like that, it’s a good idea to bring a friend and go some place public so you feel comfortable.

CamCon is a great place to meetup with other models to collaborate on content. What better place than South Beach to shoot some sexy new scenes?! Whether you’re shooting videos, pictures, or doing live cam shows together, this is a really great opportunity to shoot content. It’s also just fun to be around other cam models who can relate to you and your job, since they do the same thing! Did I mention the parties? CamCon parties are epic and so much fun! They’re usually held at some of the best clubs Miami has to offer! There’s music, dancing, drinks, go-go dancers, acrobats, and good times to be had by all.

If you need help raising money to attend CamCon, you can use social media to direct your fans to your profile page on the CamCon website. Once there, fans can sponsor you and pay for part or all of your trip! To cover things like airfare and other expenses while you’re down there, you can also ask for donations through sites like ManyVids or while you’re on cam. When you sign-up on the CamCon website, make sure you enter in your correct address right away. They send all models welcome packages with lots of goodies: an official CamCon shirt, posters, stickers, chap stick, pens, and other small items that sponsors throw in.

That’s basically the ins and outs of CamCon. For more detailed descriptions of everything, you can check out their FAQ and schedule pages. Hope to see you there!

Cam Model Forums

webcam forums

Top Webcam Forums for Cam Girls

Whether you’re new to the camming world or a veteran, it’s good to have a place where you can ask questions, get advice, vent, and hang out with other cam girls. Luckily there are several large forum sites where you can do just that! In the video, I briefly explain some of the general features you’ll find on each of the big forums. Here are some more details on each:

AmberCutie’s Forum

AmberCutie is one of the biggest and best forums for cam girls! It’s very active, and new posts are made daily. They have both a public section and a section reserved for “verified cam girls”. There are plenty of resource guides in the public section to help new cam girls get started. But if you’re an active cam model and active on the forum, you can apply to get “verified cam girl” status so you can access the Models Only forum. Male and transgender cam models are welcome on the public forum, and there is even a male model thread, but the Models Only section is reserved only for cam girls. They don’t exactly explain their full reasoning behind this, but they do say that it was originally started for Myfreecams models (since the owner cammed on MFC), and since MFC only allows female models, the majority of the posts are focused around cam girls.

The two main public sections on the forum are General Cam Chat and Ask-a-Model. If you’re new to camming, the General Cam Chat section is your new best friend! There are pages and pages full of resource guides, tips and tricks, advice to succeed on specific cam sites, toy reviews, and so much more!

Wecamgirls

Wecamgirls is another great site. Not only do they have a forum, but they have lots of other features as well. The forum is very active, and you can find models making posts throughout the day, every day. They have threads about every major cam site and content selling site with lots of tips and advice. Even some of the newer and smaller sites are listed on there. There are very useful threads about different adult-friendly payment methods, the best hardware and software to use on different sites, camming equipment, and more. There are even threads to promote your website and sell/buy sex toys, clothes, and jewelry from other models.

Besides the forum, they have an extensive review section with thousands of reviews on cam sites, payment providers, content selling sites, and studios. They also have over 1,000 resource guides.

Stripper Web

StripperWeb was originally started as a resource forum for strippers, but they have added a Camming Connection section for “virtual strippers” aka cam models! There are over 400 pages in that section of the forum alone. There are guides for different cam sites and content selling sites, general camming guides for getting started, equipment info, and just general discussions. You can find a lot of information on the forum, so it’s a good place for new cam models to start if you’re looking for some guides and advice. And if you’re just looking for a place to vent, read other cam models personal stories, and get some tips from girls who are dealing with similar situations, you can check out the Life Support section.

What Is Miss MyFreeCams?

What is Miss myfreecams all about?

​If you’ve frequented chat rooms on Myfreecams, you’ve probably heard models talking about the Miss MyFreeCams competition. It is a monthly competition on MFC that starts at 12:00:01 am PST on the first of every month and runs until 11:59:59 pm PST on the last day of each month. All active models on the site are automatically eligible for the contest, and the top 100 models who earn the most tokens during each month will receive a cash prize. The top girl is crowned Miss MyFreeCams!

There are lots of prizes to be given out in the Miss MyFreeCams competition each month, including bragging rights! The top 250 models are listed on the Miss MyFreeCams page throughout the month, which is good for exposure. The top 100 models all receive a cash prize and remain listed for the duration of the year. The top 20 receive additional exposure on the page that shows rankings from previous years. The top 3 models each month receive a little crown icon on their profile picture, inclusion in the top banner on the website, and a congratulatory tweet from the MFC Twitter page with over 93K followers. The girl crowned Miss MyFreeCams also receives a custom-designed, hand-made official Miss MyFreeCams pendant and matching necklace. The pendant is made with 14K white gold, diamonds, and accent stones that coincide with the traditional gemstone of that month of birth. Each year they use a new design for the crown pendant, making each necklace unique.

As far as cash prizes go, here is the breakdown:

  • 1ST: $1,000
  • 2ND: $800
  • 3RD: $700
  • 4TH: $600
  • 5TH: $500
  • 6TH: $450
  • 7TH: $400
  • 8TH: $350
  • 9TH: #300
  • 10TH: $250
  • 11TH – 20TH: $200
  • 21ST – 100TH: $100

Some may argue that the cash prizes aren’t that large for how competitive the competition gets each month. One reason for that is so that models don’t purchase tokens for themselves in order to boost their ranking. If you’re in the top 100, it takes a lot of tokens to move up in rank. And the price difference between buying and receiving tokens is 50%. If a model just wants bragging rights, she may purchase tokens for herself, but if she’s going for the cash prize, it makes no sense to. And during most months, the top 3 girls are thousands and thousands of tokens apart from each other, so the model would have to spend a fortune to increase her rank herself.

Miss MyFreeCams is more about having fun, pushing yourself to rank higher than you did the previous month, and getting your fans to tip you more tokens to increase your rank! When someone tips you and that tip makes you move up in rank, you should always make it a point to thank them profusely! This will encourage them, and other fans watching, to try to be the next one that moves you up in the ranks. Like with any competition, there is always going to be the models (and fans) who get catty and mean. Ignore them. They’re only jealous and trying to get a rise out of you. Focus your attention on your room and your fans. Maybe if they did the same, they’d be ranked higher that month. 😛

Throughout the month, you can check your current Miss MyFreeCams ranking at any time through your Dashboard. It also shows all of your past rankings. From your Dashboard, you can also choose to keep your username anonymous if you place in the top 250. I don’t think any models do this though because you will only receive half of the prize money if you’re anonymous, and you cannot win first place since your profile picture cannot be shown.

If you decide to cam on MyFreeCams, don’t spend too much time worrying about the competition at first. Focus on making your show great and entertaining. If you do that first, you’ll notice your ranking in the competition increasing, without you even having to do anything different!
