Congratulations on becoming a webcam model! You now have a way to make great money working from the privacy of your bedroom. To maximize your chances for success, we encourage you to read all the articles in this knowledge base. Here are some suggestions to get you started:
How this Works
Many models become overwhelmed when they first start broadcasting, because they’re unsure of what they’re supposed to be doing, or how they make money. Therefore, we’ve written an article called Earning Money as a Webcam Model, to give you an overview of the main concepts.
- Post as many profile pictures as possible. Your Primary Photo must be non-nude. All the remaining photos may be nude or non-nude.
- All your pictures should be ultra-sexy and show off your body,
- Your Primary Photo should be the sexiest non-nude picture you have. Don’t make the mistake of posting a boring Primary Photo that just shows your face. This is the photo that will appear on the home page of our website when you’re broadcasting, so it needs to be as sexy as possible.
Many members only care about your pictures and won’t bother reading your profile. Others are looking for more of a mental connection, so having a detailed, well-written profile helps with this type. Therefore, we encourage you to invest some time in writing your profile. It will be worthwhile in the long run.
Your price for private sessions has been preset to 2.49 credits per minute. In the beginning, we suggest you leave it at this rate. Once you start getting lots of customers, you can gradually increase your rate over a period of days or weeks. If you try to increase your rate too quickly, you may end up losing clients. This rule is not written in stone. If you’re extremely hot and have a super-flirtatious personality, you may be able to increase your rate immediately. However, if you increase your rate and you’re not getting many private shows, you should reduce it until you start getting more privates.
State and Country Blocking
To protect your privacy, you have the option to block as many states, provinces and countries as you like. For more information, read our article, Blocking States and Countries
In your model account, on the left side of the page, toward the bottom, you’ll see a Test Webcam Settings button. We suggest you test your cam before you start broadcasting to make sure everything is working properly. If you have multiple cams and/or multiple microphones, you can select which ones you want to use and click the Save button. This will save the settings so you when you broadcast, it will already be setup to use the correct cam and microphone. However, you can also select a different cam or mic in the broadcast application. If you have any technical issues, please contact us via Live Support.
It’s important that you read and understand our rules before you start broadcasting. If you break the rules, your account may be suspended or you may be banned from our network. Therefore, do yourself a favor and read the Broadcasting Rules now.
Our Phone-2-Phone system allows customers to call you on the phone during private shows. It’s completely anonymous, so customers will be able to call you without them knowing your real phone number. You earn additional commissions when customers use the Phone-2-Phone system during private shows, so you should definitely set this up.
In your model admin, we provide you with links to email your clients. After each private show, you should email the client to thank him for spending time with you. You can also ask him when he’d like to schedule his next session with you.
Make your room a fun, engaging experience for members. Don’t just sit there staring at the cam with a blank expression on your face. If you’re boring, customers will leave and look for a girl who’s more fun. Post a sexy topic, such as “Boobs or Butts”, or “Does size matter” and when guys enter the room, ask their opinion on the topic. This will get them talking and make them more likely to want to take you private.
Pay attention to the colored icons next to each customer’s screen name. The most important customers are the ones with GREEN icons. The green icon means the customer has credits to spend. He’s going to spend those credits on someone, so it’s your job to get him to spend those credits on YOU, rather than some other model. If there are multiple green customers in the room, divide your attention amongst all of them. If you give too much attention to one customer, the others may become discouraged and leave. Make them work for your attention, so they have an incentive to take you private. Pretend that you’re in a club and there are multiple guys trying to get your attention. If you make it too easy for them, you’ll turn them off. If you make it too difficult for them, they’ll get frustrated and give up. The secret to getting privates is to find that sweet spot where you become the cool, ultra-desirable girl whom every guy wants to get with.
You only make money when you receive tips or when customers take you private. Therefore, you should try to get as many privates as possible. There’s nothing wrong with asking customers to take you private, so long as you’re not overly pushy about it. Don’t badger them, but if they ask you to do something specific, or show nudity, you should say something like, “I’ll show you all that and more baby, once you take me private”. Sometimes customers will try to scam you by playing dumb and acting like they don’t know how to start a private show. Instead, they’ll try to convince you to give them a free show. Don’t fall for this nonsense. The customers have a large button underneath your video that reads Join My Private Live Chat. If a customer wants to take you private, he can just press that button and you’ll get a popup notification on your screen that he wants to take you private. No excuses!
Don’t ask for tips when you’re in a private show. When you’re in private, you’re already getting paid by the minute and customers expect you to provide a good show for the money they’re spending. We’ve seen many instances in which models didn’t understand this basic concept and lost customers by asking them to tip while in private. If a customer wants to tip you during a private show that’s his choice and some customers will tip you, but you should never pressure the member for tips. When you’re in public chat, you can ask for a tip if a member wants to see your boobs or requests something special. Please make sure you understand the difference between public and private chat and when it is and isn’t appropriate to ask for a tip. Remember…Public Room – OK to ask for tips, Private Room – NOT OK to ask for tips.
Immediately after each private session, you should make some notes about the client. That way, the next time you see him online, you can make him feel special by mentioning details from your last session. It’s this type of extra dedication and attention to detail that will help you become a top-earning webcam model.
The Girlfriend Experience
Becoming a successful model takes dedication and hard work. This is not a get-rich quick scheme and no matter how hot you are, you’re not going to make thousands of dollars in your first week. Just like dancers who work in a gentleman’s club, it takes time for customers to get to know you and for you to build up a steady clientele. In the beginning, you should try to broadcast for at least four hours per day and take the time to get to know each customer.
This is not just about nudity and sex, this is about building relationships with your customers. The models who make the most money take their time and act like they genuinely care about their customers. When a customer takes you into a private show, don’t immediately rip your clothes off and start masturbating. You may think that’s what customers want to see, and for some, that may be true, but many of them are looking for a virtual girlfriend. If you can be that virtual girlfriend and relate to them like how a real girlfriend would, acting like you actually care, you’ll be amazed at the results. We’ve seen this time and time again, yet no matter how many times we say it, some models “get it” and some just don’t.
