We’ve all watched a live cam show at one point in our life or the other. Some people find it very entertaining, and even a better experience than porn, while others don’t like the idea of watching another person over the webcam.
We always tend to think that personal contact is the best way to go when it comes to sexual satisfaction, no matter if you’re in a relationship or single. Going online and deliberately searching for a girl to have a kinky chat isn’t something that people will admit doing, when in fact, people do it all the time! Even though most people prefer regular porn over live cam shows, there’s still a massive audience for this type of adult entertainment.
Is Being A Cam Girl Profitable?
First of all, being a cam girl is a job like any other. The problem is that the pay isn’t the same every month. For one month’s worth of cam shows a cam girl can earn up to five figures easily while the next month she can barely earn a few hundred dollars. Many factors affect the amount a cam girl can earn per week, but the most important factor is the number of viewers she has. The more people watch her shows, the more tips she’ll get.
Then it comes to the industry average, the numbers are pretty fascinating! The average weekly pay for a cam girl is around $1,100 for around 20 hours spent camming per week. This means that if this was a full-time job (40 hours per week), a cam model could earn almost $3,000 per week.

Cam Girls Usually Don’t Work More Than 30 Hours Per Week
The great thing about this kind of work is that a cam girl can work when she wants for as long as she wants. We mentioned that the industry average is a little less than 20 hours per week, but the more hours they put in, the more they’ll earn. This is a great thing because she usually has more time for other things.
If you’re interested in dating a cam girl, make sure you’re alright with her profession. Cam girls are something between models and porn actresses. Even though some people tip girls who don’t take off their clothes, it’s much more likely they’ll make some money if they show their most intimate body parts. Cam girls who use different kinds of sex toys and equipment get tipped the most, as well as the models who interact with their viewers, showing the viewers exactly what they want to see.

Keep An Open Mind If You Want To Date A Cam Girl
There’s a stereotype when it comes to cam girls and people who date them can find it difficult to accept that. The fact that a lot of cam models include nudity in their shows and sometimes even use sex toys doesn’t mean that they’re cheating on their boyfriend or girlfriend. They’re just girls comfortable with their bodies who don’t mind doing all sorts of naughty things while making an honest living. The vast majority of successful cam girls also stated that they have a lot of fun interacting with their patrons.
The fact that the vast majority of cam girls include nudity in their shows isn’t something you should worry about. Yes, people can see her naked, but it doesn’t mean that she’ll be dishonest with you or even cheat on you with someone else. Dating a cam girl is like dating a model. The only difference is that cam girls do their modeling online. Not all models include sexual activities in their shows, so if you’re someone who couldn’t accept something like that, be honest with the girl you’re interested in and talk to her before taking things too seriously.
Would You Be Willing To Join?
It’s not uncommon for cam girls to ask their boyfriends or girlfriends to join them in front of the camera. This is mostly related to cam girls who include sex-related content in their online shows and adding another person to the mix can quickly boost their fan base. With a bigger fan base, the cam models are likely to get more tips as well.
The great thing about camming is that you don’t need to show your face at any given moment, especially if you’re joining your girlfriend in one of her shows. Imagine if you’re just filming yourselves for your private collection. It can actually be a pretty amazing experience! Knowing that someone’s watching you do all sorts of kinky things with your girlfriend can spice things up quickly and you may end up liking it! Although couples aren’t featured so much on cam sites, there’s a huge demand for couple cam shows. You’d be amazed by the number of people that would join your stream if both of you participated in the show.

Dating A Cam Girl Cam Be Difficult But It Has Its Benefits
The great thing about cam girls is that they’re very open-minded. They’re open to new ideas, new experiences, and usually, kinky sex. Unfortunately, some cam girls take the job too seriously and they can get overly committed to satisfying their fans even when they’re not streaming. This means that a cam girl will spend much more time at the gym, she’ll focus a lot more on a healthy diet plan and most nights, she’ll be working.
There are many things you’ll need to adapt to if you plan on dating a cam girl, but there are a lot of pros to dating one as well. For one, sex is usually mind-blowing. Not because the girl is skilled in bed but because she’s open to trying new things! Also, she’s likely to have a killer-body because her looks have a huge effect on the number of viewers she’ll attract.
If you’re willing to adapt to her lifestyle, you won’t have any issues dating a cam girl. It can be an incredible experience and it’s something that shouldn’t discourage you to start dating the girl you like!

We sincerely hope you’ve gained something tangible from our series of posts on making a viable profession out of camming. The pandemic has led to a massive increase in the number of live cam girls on well-known sites. That has made it much more challenging to sustain your career only with tips from viewers of a live cam show. You need a much broader strategy to succeed now. We have repeatedly stressed the fact that you need to position yourself as a brand on the internet. Well, the advantages of doing so include the ability to rake in money from diversified sources. This post will explore less-explored avenues that can provide a stable income and make camming a lucrative profession for you. All of these platforms are quite mature and lucrative if you can garner the attention of their users. In some of them, fans pay a subscription to access your content, and you get a regular source of income. However, some of these sites have cracked down on adult content creators, but there are ways through which you can navigate such obstacles. Another issue with these sites is that your content can be copied and posted on the internet. There are sites such as ‘Yiff.Party’ that have become an accessory to such practices. The sad thing is that there’s not much help that such sites offer to creators to take down content, but according to us, that’s a risk you have to take. We always try to provide complete information to our readers so that they can make an informed decision.
Till 2017, Patreon was the go-to platform for camgirls, and everything was hunky-dory. Then, like many other social networks, it started going after adult performers, especially live cam girls. If you want to gather subscribers who pay for content on this platform, you will have to straddle a fine line. You will need to engage with your fans and be careful with NSFW content, as that is a sure-shot way of getting your account banned. You need to be creative in using the platform and share unique content that makes your fans happy. Otherwise, people will not pay money to subscribe to your account on this site.

As you would know, Snapchat is a social network that is popular among millennials because of its privacy and user-friendly nature. Over the years, it has become a viable revenue source for adult performers. The mechanics of the income funnel work on this platform work like this. You can offer access to your Snapchat content to users for a fee. Also, you can interact and share messages with these users. It is this feature that is driving the popularity of this platform for consumers of adult content. No other social network on date offers such intimate proximity to the girl that you see on a free cam show! As it is not an official feature of Snapchat, you will have to take the help of a third party such as Fancentro to collect subscription fees. Through such sites, you can sell access for a monthly or yearly period or even for a lifetime. These sites also have a dedicated user base that you can tap. One of the primary ways to promote your account is to participate in takeovers of other profiles, especially adult websites that offer these services. You can also publicize your Snapchat on other social media and on your public profile on the site.
One of the things that you need to realize is that posting adult content, and accepting payments are not allowed by Snapchat. Theoretically, it could ban all those accounts indulging in such activity, but it hasn’t happened until now, and it is a chance that both you and your subscribers should be willing to take! Similarly, you can sell access to your Instagram profile, but there is a pretty high possibility of a ban if you post adult content!
If you don’t go through a third party and use a payment service provider such as PayPal, you need to be careful. The moment they find out that you are selling adult services, you will likely forfeit all the money in your account. It usually happens when some user uses the chargeback option and has to describe to the provider as to why he or she wants the amount to be reversed.

Only Fans/Loyal Fans
Due to the risks that come with the above subscription models, some adult-friendly subscription sites have emerged. The most prominent among these sites is Only Fans, and a lot of adult performers have moved to this subscription-based site. Since inception, the site claims to have paid out more than 1 billion dollars to performers, an amount not to be scoffed at! The model is similar to the others, wherein you sell access to content at a monthly price. The platform has not been without its share of controversy. The popular adult model Bella Thorne was recently in the news for earning a whopping 2 million dollars in one week on this platform! The alleged malpractices used to make this amount have led to significant changes in site policy after many subscribers asked for refunds. But this does indicate the massive money-making potential of this platform for performers on free live sex cams! Loyal Fans is another site conducive to adult content and has started gaining a bit of traction with performers.
With this, we come to an end to our series of posts on some crucial tips to achieve success, and stand out from the crowd of live cam girls on the internet! We’ll come back with more useful content in the future!

At any given point of the day, hundreds, if not thousands of live cam girls are broadcasting to an online audience. Many people log onto the internet to watch a naked live cam, but they are not sure where to go. The fight is to direct these viewers to your performance, and it is not an easy thing to achieve. In the previous blog, we focused on using social media to lead the audience to your live cam show. The internet is a much larger place than what these popular social networks would have you believe. There are more traffic sources that you can target once you’ve started gaining some traction on the major webcam sites. The primary source of traffic on the internet is the search engine, and you need a broad strategy to ace this funnel. Search engines do give preference to social media, and we have covered that in our previous post in much detail. In this post, we will discuss organic ways to build your online viewership so that you can earn more from your live cam show on our site.

Identify your online positioning
When you’re really serious about making it big as a live cam girl, then you should really think about how you want to position your services. You must identify a segment that you can cater to, such as teen, milf, redhead, etc. Each of these is a niche in its own right and has thousands of dedicated viewers willing to spend if they like what they see. If you cannot decide yourself, then try and figure out how your viewers perceive you when you perform. You can do this by observing the language they use on chat forums on free cam shows. Your free cam show audience can tell you a lot, but only if you take their feedback into account. The importance of this identification is that you can start targeting search results for these categories. The other way to influence the search engine is to build your own site. In the next part of this post, we will tell you exactly how to go about it.
Building your personal website
One of the ways that you can promote yourself as a brand is to build a website. Only performers who have skin in the game usually create a site as they know that it is primarily a one-time investment of resources to develop a permanent identity on the World Wide Web. The first thing to ask yourself is that do you really need a site? If you really are in the space for the long haul, only then should you go for this option. Otherwise, you can make do with the inventive use of social media to engage with your followers and increase viewership numbers.

It does not have to cost you a lot of money, but you must be careful about how you position yourself on the site. You must remember that the site’s purpose is to communicate about your services to a broader audience. Thus, it must link to all the places that you perform on or sell content on. All your communication on the site must be done to establish you in the identified niche. For this, there is no need to share any kind of personal information, but you can share things that your fans might want to know. Tell them a bit about your sexual kinks, and you might make them thirsty for more! You can take inspiration from the sites of famous live cam girls such as Vicky Vixxx as to how you should brand your website. You can also use the blog section to express your opinions and give your fans a chance to read your thoughts. You do need to remember that these posts must also contribute to your positioning.
Many revenue sources open up for you when you have a website to call your own. You can take orders for custom video clips, which has emerged as an additional income source for live cam girls. We would advise you to post one or two free clips so that visitors to your site can sample your performances. Consider this as a form of marketing, and it can yield surprising results. You can also provide a link to an Amazon wish list, and if your admirers really dig you, they can gift stuff from that list. You can also offer them more paid content on your site, or provide links to websites such as Patreon and onlyfans, where they access such content on payment. The other things you can sell on your site is lingerie and other props. You will be surprised at how many dedicated fans purchase such stuff as they want to identify with you! Affiliate marketing can also act as a source of revenue, and you can place banner ads on your site of cam platforms, and other adult services.
The only thing that your website demands from you is the use of your imagination, and the initial setup cost. If you are willing to spare both for long-term gain, you might find that creating a website played a crucial role in achieving your aims as a model of the free live sex cams!
Apart from this, some performers use inorganic ways to boost traffic, such as running ad and PPC campaigns on Google. Also, they pay money for increasing their followers on social media. You can go down that path, but only after you have exhausted organic options. In the next part of this series, we will discuss Patreon and other revenue funnels, such as Loyal Fans, as we feel these deserve your undivided attention. After all, we’re here to assist in any way we can in your journey as a cam girl!

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!

Everyone in the adult industry is now jumping onto the adult webcam bandwagon! They are right in doing so, as there is a lot of dough on the table, and the pie is only increasing with time! Since you are reading this post, we assume that you are interested in camming to earn money. Doing a bit of research beforehand is always the best way to go. If you want to make your name and a lot of money as a cam model, this might be just the right place to begin! We are sharing this blog so that you avoid the common mistakes and learn from the experience of some of the most successful live cam girls in the business! After all, camming is not rocket science! Before going into the nitty-gritty of the matter, we must mention that you must be dedicated to camming if you want to earn serious money. In that way, it is just like another job, where if you are creative and innovative, you will pull ahead of the crowd. If you want to look at it as a hobby, you must keep your expectations low.
The initial research
You must first decide on the website that you are going to broadcast on. If you ask us, it should be our site, as there is literally no other cam site that provides such generous compensation! We also offer the support and assistance you need to make it big as a cam star. But still, don’t go on our word, devote some time to research, and set up an account on the adult webcam site of your choice.
Then, spend some time on the camsite and check what the other performers are doing. This will give you an idea of what sells the most, and you can start off doing that. You need to identify the best times to broadcast so that you give yourself the best chance to earn money. Ideally, these are when the high-paying users from developed countries such as the US and UK are online. Look at your own schedule, and find a way that the times can match. You will have to make sacrifices and adjust your personal and social life to make space for your cam schedule. Broadcast only when you expect no interruptions as viewers absolutely hate them! Budget a minimum of 2-3 hours of camming every day to generate a considerable amount of money via tips, as per our experience. You must also make it a point to learn all the terms related to free live sex cams such as cam to cam, PM, etc. Finally, chose an attractive name for yourself, and keep that name constant across cam platforms to create brand recall.

Manage the logistics for an appealing live cam show
The next thing that you must focus on is equipment and a place to broadcast. First, find a clean, well-lit space where visibility is not an issue, and you will not face any disturbance. You do not want folks to be walking into your broadcast, just when your audience starts to enjoy the show! These are little things, but if you keep them in mind, the final effect will be excellent. You can use your creativity in decoration and lighting, to make the whole setup appealing to the eye, but don’t spend a lot of money on this.
After this, you need a good webcam, so that you can give your viewers the best quality webcam experience. It should cost about USD 50 on an eCommerce site. We really do not advise on using a laptop webcam as the quality can be a bit dicey. Set everything up, and go on some calls with friends to test audio and video quality.
The next important thing is sex toys, and you just cannot do without them. If you have spent any kind of time watching the live cam girls do their job, you must know that most of them have the Lovesense Lush as their toy of choice! These allow users to give the cam models pleasure with their tips. These devices also have different functionalities, such as posting notifications on your adult chatbox. They can make the process of handling both the chat and the performance easier for you. You can focus on what you need to do to keep the tips flowing! The device can also set up games such as roll the dice for your free cam show, and these can keep users engaged. The user rolls the dice after putting in a tip, and there is an activity that you need to perform that corresponds to the number that comes on the dice. You really need these add-ons as you will see that almost every performer worth their salt uses them.

The Attitude to Please
Before going any further in this series of posts, we would like to talk about the essential trait that you need to have to succeed. We did talk about dedication earlier, but this is even more important. It is the attitude to please, something so basic, yet missing in so many wannabe performers. As viewers, we find it really irritating when the performer acts like a prima donna. Once you establish yourself as a name, then you can go on having airs! But initially, be communicative and helpful, and make the extra effort to impress viewers. In the public sphere, you cannot succeed without this trait, as simple as that!
Here, let us clarify that you never need to do something you are very uncomfortable with. The way to go is to make it clear to the viewer/tipper in the beginning, and you will not face many issues. Some viewers can get rude and pushy, don’t hesitate to ban them from your chatrooms! You can and should set the tone for your naked live cam, and users will find it rewarding to comply with you!
With this, we come to the end of this post. In the second post of this series, we will talk a bit about the creative aspects of camming and other things that will be useful for you in your career as a cam model.
