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!

As we know, every performer in the adult industry is now focussed on live camming. If they aren’t, they will be! Porn is not nearly as well as paying as the webcam industry. Also, everyone loves being their own boss. For the viewers, it is a bonus to have so much competition as the quality of the performances steadily increases with time. In the first part of this series of blog posts, we handled mostly the logistical and attitudinal aspects of how you could become a top webcam model on the internet. In this blog, we will focus a bit on the creative elements of camming and some simple tips that allow you to improve as a performer. After all, you need all the help you can get to succeed in the ultra-competitive world of live cams!
Creative hacks to enhance user satisfaction
In the adult webcam world, there are thousands of models vying for the attention of the viewers. Only the top ones make a lot of money, while the rest make up the numbers! There is no easy way to make it to the higher rungs of adult cam performers, but you can always be smart, and leapfrog the others through your creativity.
We have talked about setup and lighting in the first blog, and there is a lot more you can do in this respect. You do not have to reinvent the wheel; see what some of the existing models are doing, and implement the same in your room. There are examples of models that recreate a strip club’s atmosphere with party lights, liquor, and cigarettes. We don’t have a set creative recipe that works for all models; it depends on your look, age, and the target audience. But we know one thing for sure; you must have a wide range of activities that you can offer a paying viewer.
The first thing to do is to be comfortable in your own skin. At first, stick to the things that you know and like. People are attracted to happiness and confidence, and the same is the case with the viewers of the free live adult cams. Also, interaction is crucial. Speak to them, answer their questions, and ask some of your own. If you show genuine interest in your male viewers, they will get such a massive kick out of it! Everyone loves being appreciated and cared for, and this is how you do it online! Once these viewers are engaged with the show, they will not leave so quickly. If you are a good dancer, you will do well to start with a seductive dance, and you might find that the audience goes crazy about you! If there is no specific thing that you are an expert at, just open your webcam, and start showing off your sexy lingerie. Yes, you have to titillate your viewers a bit, and take them to the point that they cannot return from easily! Then, you will find them willing to pay enormous tips for doing their bidding.
There are activities such as cosplay, BDSM, and ahegao with a niche audience willing to pay decent sums of money for what it likes. It is not that hard to learn how to perform these acts, but you need to develop a degree of comfort. No one wants to pay for a cam girl who is not confident of pulling off her performance! So, here is what you need to build your expertise. Watch a few videos online to get the hang of what you need to do. Rehearse alone so that you can get a bit familiar with your routine. After that, you can try these out on a live cam show, and see if you’re comfortable. Once you have developed a familiarity with the activity, you can price it at a premium. Or you can keep particular days for these activities, so there is an anticipation in the viewers’ minds for the show.

Improvisation remains vital in a live cam show
While it does help you, if you have a set routine and stick to it, you also need to keep an open mind. In this world, you will find that many users are clear in their minds about what they want to do. You need to go with the flow, and your performance will naturally get better as they direct you to do the needful. We have seen this happening with a lot of cam girls. They start off as shy and under-confident but transform into experienced performers within a short period. It will also give your fan club and followers immense satisfaction that you got better with their help. They can also help you generate additional income through the sale of clips and other items endorsed by you. We will talk about this in some detail in the next blog of this series. The aspect we are emphasizing here is that when your followers start identifying with your cause, you are on the path to success!
There are a lot of other things that you can do to add variety to your shows. You could convince some of your friends to join you for some days, and see where the performance takes you! Viewers absolutely adore a live couple sex cam, and are willing to shower the performers with tips! We have seen shows with just 2 live cam girls drinking wine and speaking to viewers attract hundreds of dollars in tips! If both of you are comfortable getting intimate with each other, you could just get on with it and put on a show that your viewers will love! You never know what will work, and you might just stumble onto a gold mine if you keep experimenting with different routines.
With this, we come to an end with this blog. In the next and final part of this series, we will focus on developing other revenue and traffic sources for your cam shows. Stay tuned!
