Camming has emerged as one of the most significant revenue streams for adult models. As we have said elsewhere, the shift from porn sites to adult webcam sites is expected to continue, making this niche even more lucrative. However, this trend also means that everyone and their aunt is shifting to this platform! The pandemic has also made a lot of smart girls lose their jobs. They are at home with nothing to do, so they have also begun thinking of broadcasting on a live cam show to earn instant money. Such a high level of competition makes it even harder to succeed for a newcomer to succeed. In the previous 2 parts of this blog, we have explained many essential elements that will help you in your quest to make camming a viable profession for you. In the third part, we will focus more on the monetary part of things, as that is the point of all this hard word, isn’t it?
Think like an entrepreneur!
There is a secret to succeeding in this niche, and that quite simply is professionalism. The highest-earning cam girls run their set up like a proper business. They focus on marketing, differentiation, engagement, and post-sales service. These girls also attempt to develop alternate streams of revenue. It is only after such efforts that they make thousands of dollars as live cam girls. While this may intimidate you at first and seem like a bit of corporate jargon, we will help you understand the practical aspects. You can do a lot of things at your own level, even when you start off alone. The important thing is taking the initiative and trying out new stuff!

Assistance while performing
When you think as a businesswoman, many ideas can come to your mind to convert your viewers as a paying customer. The first one is to get some moderators for your live cam show. So, what do these guys do? They perform a simple task that has been a part of the service industry for long. You know how newly-opened restaurants and even casinos hire people to act as customers; so others look at them and get encouraged to consume whatever they are selling. Then, service businesses also hire bouncers to ensure that decorum is maintained, and the bad apples do not spoil the whole show. When you start a free cam show, you need to focus more on the act, as you are new to it. At that time, these moderators can help you. They act as mediators and negotiate prices with the viewers who desire to see specific actions. In free live sex cams, these guys ensure that they tip small amounts constantly so that the viewers feel that this is a performance worth paying for. They also encourage others to show appreciation to the model in the form of tips. They are also highly helpful if you are not comfortable with English or whatever language most of your viewers use to communicate with you. Then, they kick out the troublemakers that inevitably arrive on the free live adult cams. These include rude viewers, stalkers, cheapskates, and those who spam your webcam chat with links and offers for other sites. Such users can irritate and even discourage genuine viewers from visiting your live cam show. The most important thing about the moderators is that they do all this for free! You are under no obligation to pay them, though you can do so if you feel that they have contributed to an increase in your earnings.

Fans and followers
After the mods, we come to your fan club and followers. Always encourage your viewers to become your followers first, so they know when you’re broadcasting. Treat your followers well, and ensure that they remain updated if you are going to do something special or elaborate. As for the fan clubs, only viewers who tip you can become a part of this. Ensure that whenever a member of your fan club comes online, you treat him well. Give them better prices on clips, pics, and other products you sell. Make them promoters of your cause, and give them loads of credit for helping you out. There are not a lot of things that can come close to genuine appreciation from a hot woman! Take advantage of this and dole out praise generously.
Alternate revenue streams
As a live cam girl, you will have good and bad days. Sometimes, the rut might last for weeks and months. You need to diversify your sources of income to ensure that you can survive during such times. There are some alternative ways through which you can earn as a live cam model. You have the opportunity to sell steamy pics and clips on your profile page, and also on platforms such as manyvids. You can also monetize your website and social media channels such as Snapchat, Patreon, and OnlyFans. Models have the option of selling self-branded products on your website/eCommerce sites. Once you develop your site, you can also generate passive income through affiliate marketing. We will have a detailed discussion on some of these topics in the next post, in which we will have an in-depth analysis on the branding aspect of this niche.
Initially, you can do all of this on your own, but once the cash register starts ringing, we suggest that you get help from professionals who specialize in branding, marketing, and direct sales. They can help you make it big, as they have both the expertise and the time to implement solutions for you. Consider it as an investment, and you will have very few reasons to regret having made such a move!
