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

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! Even if you’re a veteran to camming, you’ll find lots of interesting threads to read where you can discuss different aspects of being a cam girl with girls who do the same thing as you. If you’re uncomfortable talking about what you do with friends or family, this is a great place to go and chat with other models who can relate.

The Ask-a-Model section also has a lot of guides for new models. If you have a question about something related to camming, you can most likely find the answer in one of the threads. And if you can’t find an answer to your question, you can always start your own thread. Chances are it’ll be answered by a member of the community in no time. If you need help understanding how forums work and some basic etiquette for cam models, You can view our article titled: Webcam Forum Etiquette.

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!
