Webcam Girl Jobs – General Information

Do you need money to pay your bills, but have no job? Perhaps you should consider taking a webcam girl job. You’ll be able to work from home and set your own hours. If you’re wondering how to apply for this type of job or you’re unsure about how long it will take to get started, read on! Most of our models are able to broadcast within 24-hours from the time they submit their information. Before you can be approved, we’ll need to verify your age and identity. This means you’ll have to submit a picture of your government-issued photo ID, such as a drivers license, passport, postal ID, etc…

The process may seem confusing at first, but there are no special requirements. As long as you’re at least 18 years old and we’re able to verify your ID documents, you’ll be approved and you can then start working immediately. When you have a webcam girl job, you’re not an employee in the sense of being hired. You work as an independent contractor, so your success depends on YOU. Most models who become successful in this business are outgoing, friendly and flirtatious. Of course, if you’re physically attractive, that’s an advantage, but you don’t have to be a super model to get a web cam girl job. Most models are pretty, but not necessarily drop-dead gorgeous. Personality is really the most important factor in your success. In this business, we’re selling fantasy, so it’s all about getting into the heads of your clients and making them desire you.

One great benefit of being a web cam model is that you don’t have to troll for customers. We have thousands of members visiting our site every day, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make money with us. Our job is to bring you prospects and your job is to lure them in and turn them into paying members. Once you log into your chat room, members will start entering almost immediately. We also have a referral program that allows you to earn even more money by referring new customers to our site.

Nudity

When you’re in free chat, you’re allowed to be topless but not fully nude. However, you should demand that members tip you in order to see you topless. Why give it away for free? Once you’re in a private show, you can be fully nude, but it’s not required. Although you’re not required to be nude, please realize most members will expect to see some nudity in private. If you’re not willing to do that, you should advise the member beforehand of how much you’re willing to show and what you’re willing to do in private. Some clients may  request you to perform sexual acts like masturbation or you may be asked to use sex toys. Again, it’s always your decision, but it’s important to be up-front with your clients, so they don’t waste their time and money.

Broadcasting

When you broadcast on our network, you’ll appear simultaneously on many different sites, operated by us and our affiliates. We only make money if you make money, so we try our best to help you become successful and earn as much as possible. Upon request, we can give you live coaching and/or monitor your chat sessions at first, to help get you on the right track. We also offer live support via TeamViewer to help you get your computer setup to broadcast. Our software runs entirely in your web browser, so there’s nothing to download or install, making it easy to get started. If you have any technical problems, you can request that we connect to where your computer remotely via TeamViewer to troubleshoot and fix the problem. Therefore, even though you’re working as an independent contractor, you’ll always have our team behind you.

Hardware and Software Requirements

To broadcast, you’ll need a desktop or notebook computer, either running Mac OS or Windows. You can NOT broadcast from an iPad, iPhone, Android tablet or other phones, you need an actual computer. If your notebook has a webcam built-in you use that, but the video quality will not be great. We strongly encourage you to invest in an external webcam, such as a Logitech C920. You’ll also need a high speed internet connection which has at least 1 Mbps UPLOAD speed. When you’re broadcasting, upload speed is more important than download speed, so order an Internet connection that has the fastest possible upload speed.

Scheduling and Rules for Webcam Girl Jobs

We offer total flexibility with regard to your work schedule. You can work as often or as little as you want and you can stop whenever you want. You’re not obligated to work a certain number of hours or to work at all. We do have some important rules you’ll need to abide by. The most important rule is you are the only person who may appear on your broadcast. If you have a couples account with another model, then you and the other model can appear together. However, you can not have random people showing up on your broadcast, even if they’re in the background. Also, you’re not allowed to share personal information or off-site contact information with clients. This means you can NOT give them your Skype or Yahoo ID, email address, real name, address, phone number or any other means of them contacting you off the site. We provide an internal email system that allows you to communicate with members on the site.

Conclusion

Working as a web cam model can be a terrific opportunity to make lots of money without even leaving your bedroom. As long as you have a computer and an Internet connection, you’re good to go. Beyond that, you’ll just need your pretty smile and your sexy body. Not everyone becomes successful at this, but if you need money, you certainly owe it to yourself to give it a try. Become a web cam model could be a great way to change your life by improving your financial condition.

How long does it take to get started?

You’ll be able to login to your account and start setting up your profile immediately after submitting your application.

However, before you can begin broadcasting, we must review all your documents and verify your ID. This review process normally takes one business day. Please note that our compliance department is closed on weekends, so if you apply on a weekend, your application will be reviewed on Monday.

How do you decide which models get hired?

We don’t have any type of selection process for our models. So long as you meet the legal requirements pertaining to age, ID verification, etc… you’ll be able to work on our websites.

Remember that you’re not being “hired” in the sense of working as an employee. You’re applying to work as an independent contractor on our websites and your success is entirely up to you. The models who succeed and make money are generally physically attractive and have outgoing, flirtatious personalities. If you’re overweight, unattractive, or have a dull personality, it’s unlikely that you’ll succeed at this.

Do I have to look like a supermodel to be a webcam model?

The short answer is “no”. We’ve found that average looking girls and guys who have great personalities can make just as much if not more money than supermodel types who rely entirely on their looks to draw in customers. Remember, you’re selling a fantasy and fantasies are entirely mental, so it’s usually about more than just looks.

With that said, if you’re unattractive, overweight, or lack personality this is probably not for you.

Do I have to troll for customers?

Absolutely not!

Our websites receive millions of visitors each month and all that traffic goes directly to our models. Our job is to bring you customers and your job is to perform for those customers.

When you login to your chat room on our site, we’ll immediately start sending customers into your room. Most models will typically have anywhere from 5 to 20 customers in their room at any given time.

With all that said, we do offer a lucrative referral program for models who bring new customers to the site. When you refer a new customer, you’ll earn 20% of everything that customer spends on the site, for life. You earn the commission even when he spends money on other models.

Which websites will I appear on?

We actually operate hundreds of websites and you’ll appear on all our sites simultaneously. To see an example of one of our websites, check out MongoCams.

What kind of support do you provide?

We only make money when you making money, so it’s in our best interest for you to succeed and maximize your income. Therefore, we’re happy to provide as much support as you need to get started in this business.

We randomly monitor our performers’ chat sessions, but upon request, we can specifically monitor your sessions and provide feedback and tips via private messaging. Additionally, we’re available to help you setup your computer and webcam, advise you on how to improve your lighting and sound and anything else you need help with.

If you’re having technical issues broadcasting, with your permission, we can connect to your computer remotely to troubleshoot and fix the problem.

Do I have to be nude while broadcasting?

Depending on the client, you may be asked to pose nude or perform sexual acts such as masturbation, playing with sex toys, etc…

However, it’s always YOUR choice to pose nude or partake in sexual acts. It’s important to be up-front with clients about what you will or will not do in a private show. Most of our models are comfortable posing fully nude, but we also have models who only appear topless and still make plenty of money. It all depends on your personality and what you’re comfortable with.

What happens if I want to quit or stop working for a while?

We offer total flexibility with respect to your schedule. You can work as often or as little as you like and you’re free to stop at any time. There’s no obligation to work any particular number of hours or to work at all.

What kind of computer, webcam and Internet connection do I need?

  • Any reasonably new computer should work, but the faster the better. Since our broadcasting technology is Flash-based, we don’t support broadcasting from phones or tablets directly. However, there’s an app called Puffin Browser, available for iOS and Android, which allows you to run Flash apps on a mobile device. We’ve tested it with our site and it seems to work fairly well. If you don’t have access to a computer, we suggest you give this a try.
  • You can use the webcam built-in to your notebook, but the quality will not be great. For best results, we encourage you to use an external webcam, such as a Logitech C920.
  • You need a high-speed Internet connection with at least 1 Mbps UPLOAD speed.

Can I broadcast using a Mac?

Yes, our broadcast application works fine on Macs.

Do you hire models from my country?

Yes! We hire models from ALL countries.

What rules must I follow while working?

When you sign up, we’ll provide you with a complete list of  rules. However, there are several major rules you should be aware of, before you even submit your application:

  • You are the only person who is ever permitted to appear on video in your chat room. The only exception to this rule is if you and another performer have registered a “couples” profile. In that case, you’d both be permitted to appear simultaneously when logged into that profile. If another person appear on your video stream, even briefly, that can be considered grounds for termination. Please consider this rule carefully if you live with roommates or other people who may not understand the seriousness of the rule. It’s important to make them understand this is your work and they can’t be joking around, waving to the camera, etc…
  • You may never, under any circumstance share personal information, such as your email address, real name, real address, phone number, Skype ID, Yahoo ID, etc… We consider the sharing of personal information to be an attempt to steal our customers, so this can result in us terminating your account.  We provide an internal, private email system that allows you to communicate with your customers without revealing your real email address or any personal information. We also provide an anonymous phone-to-phone system that allows you to talk to customers on the phone without revealing your actual phone number.

Is your company a legitimate business?

We’ve been in business since 2007 and have signed up thousands of models from all over the world. Unlike many of our competitors, we’re based in the United States. Also, unlike many of our competitors, we operate our own network of cam sites. When you sign up with us, you’ll be working directly for us, on our sites.

If you have further questions, you’re welcome to pick up the phone and call us. Yes, we answer our phone and yes, you can speak with an actual person.

Studios

What is a studio?

A studio is a person or company that recruits, trains and manages models on our behalf. A studio may have a physical location where models broadcast from, or the studio may be entirely virtual, with models working from home.

When you sign up as a studio, we provide you with a studio account that will allow you to add models, edit model profiles, track your models’ earnings and monitor them while they’re broadcasting. You have control over the percentage your models earn.

Additionally, we can provide you with your own white label cam site, hosted on your domain and branded with your logo, color scheme, etc… This gives your studio the appearance of being an independent webcam company and avoids the problem of models going around you and signing up directly with us.

To learn more about our studio and white label program, please visit EZ CamSites.

How do I make money as a studio?

Your studio earns 40 – 50% of the gross amount spent on your models. This rate varies depending on the amount your models charge for private shows. We pay a higher commission rate when models sell more expensive private shows.

From your 40 – 50%, you specify the percentage we will pay to your models. For example, if you pay your models 80% of your share, they’ll receive 32 – 40% of the gross and your studio will be left with 8 – 10% of the gross. Since most webcam companies pay their models 20 – 30% of the gross, this structure would allow you to pay your models a competitive rate, while still retaining a decent profit margin for your studio.

Additionally, if you participate in our white label program, you’ll be able to earn affiliate commissions when customers spend money on your site.

To learn more about our studio and white label program, visit EZ CamSites.

What are my responsibilities as a studio operator?

Our studio program as a business partnership in which we provide the technology, website, administrative support and customers, while you provide the models.

Your job as a studio operator is to recruit,train and manage your models. We handle everything else.

To learn more about our studio and white label program, visit EZ CamSites.

How do I sign up models?

We provide you with a tracking URL unique to your studio. When models sign up via this URL, we place them in your studio account. If you operate a physical studio and models are signing up with you in person, you can use this URL yourself to fill out the application on their behalf.

If you participate in our white label program, your models will be able to register directly on your website.

To learn more about our studio and white label program, visit EZ CamSites.

Who pays my models?

We can pay your models directly, OR we can pay your studio the entire amount. If we pay your models directly, they’d receive the percentage you specify and your studio would receive the remaining amount.

Most studios prefer that we pay their models directly.

To learn more about our studio and white label program, visit EZ CamSites.

Who can become a studio?

Studio accounts are for people or companies that intend to recruit models.

If you’re planning to work as a model yourself, you should sign for a Model Account, not a Studio Account. You can have both a Model Account and a Studio account, but you may NOT work as a model under your own studio account.

To learn more about our studio and white label program, visit EZ CamSites.

Earnings and Payments

How do I get paid? What payment methods do you offer?

  • We collect the money from customers and  pay you the total amount you earned for the pay period. Therefore, you never need to worry about collecting money, it’s all handled for you.
  • We issue payments on the 1st and 16th day of each month.
  • We offer payment via check, direct deposit to your bank account, or prepaid MasterCard (Payoneer). If you don’t have a Payoneer card, you can get one through our company. After you register as a model, we’ll provide you with a link that will allow you to sign up for Payoneer.

Am I guaranteed to make a certain hourly rate?

No, there are no guarantees.

Working as a webcam model is similar to working as a dancer in a gentleman’s club. You set your own hours and you get paid your per-minute rate only while performing private shows for customers.

Each time you login, you start out in free chat. Within a few minutes, customers will start coming into your chat room. In free chat, customers can tip you, but there’s no per-minute rate. Your job is to entice customers into buying a private show so they can see you perform nude. Once the private show begins, you start earning your per-minute rate and you continue earning for as long as the show lasts. When the show ends, you return to the free chat room.

Do you deduct taxes from my pay check?

No, you’re considered an Independent Contractor, not an Employee. Therefore, we pay you the entire amount you’re owed and it’s your responsibility to pay whatever taxes may be due.

Do you report my income to the IRS?

Yes, but only if you reside in the United States and earn at least $600 during the year.

If those conditions are met, we’ll send a 1099 to both you and the IRS.

How much money can I make, realistically?

We cannot guarantee that you’ll make a specific amount of money. Your income depends on how many hours you work and how good of a performer you are.

Many of our models earn $250 – $500 per week, so that’s certainly attainable. Additionally, your income should increase as customers get to know you, so don’t become discouraged if you’re not making a lot when you first start.

What company name will appear on my payments?

The company name will be listed as a generic name that can not be traced back to a webcam site. We do this to protect YOUR privacy. If we listed the company name on this website then anyone would be able to Google it and find out that you’d worked as a webcam model.

How can I tell how much I’ve earned?

You can login to your account at any time and run an earnings report showing detailed information on how much you’ve earned, up to the minute.

Privacy

Is this safe?

  • Working as a webcam model allows you to work safely and securely from the comfort of home. Since you don’t have to leave home to work, it’s safer than most jobs.
  • We will NEVER publish your personal information anywhere on our website.
  • We will NEVER reveal your real name, location, email address, phone number or ANY OTHER PERSONAL INFORMATION to a customer.
  • You’ll broadcast using a stage name, NOT your real name.
  • You can block people in states, provinces and/or countries you select. When you block a state, province or country, people from that region will not see your profile on our websites and will not be able to chat with you.

Do you post recordings of my private shows on your site?

No. Unlike other webcam companies, we respect your privacy.

When a customer takes you private, he’s able to later pay to watch a recording of the show. However, other customers may not see the recording, only the original customer who took you private. Additionally, the recording cannot be downloaded or saved, he can only watch it on our website.

Will this show up on a background check?

Since you’re an Independent Contractor, not an employee, it’s highly unlikely that this would show up on a background check.

However, if it did show up, it would only show that you worked as an Independent Contractor for Scope Agency, LLC. There’d be no mention of webcam modeling and there’s no way anyone would know that you worked as a webcam model.

Can I hide my face while broadcasting?

No.

In order to comply with US federal laws, we must be able to identify the performer who’s brodcasting. If your face is hidden, we’d have no way of knowing if it’s really you broadcasting.

Can I block states and countries?

Yes, you can block U.S. states, Canadian provinces and entire countries.

People in blocked states, provinces and countries will not be able to view your profile or chat with you on any of our sites.

Can members find out where I live?

Absolutely not. We do not reveal your personal information to any customers, EVER.

Multiple Payment Options!

We offer our models a choice of payment methods, including Check, Prepaid Debit Card, Direct Deposit to your bank account and Bitcoin.
