As a successful cam model, I often hear questions like “How do I become a
cam girl?” and “Would you recommend this job to other girls?”.
Truth to be told, I think I have the best job in the world, but the road to where I am today was long and there were a lot of bumps on the way.
If you’re thinking about becoming a camgirl, you’ll probably find my story to be interesting.
Five years ago, I was a recently divorced single mom and I was working the graveyard shift in a bakery. My working hours were terrible because I never got to spend any time with my kid since I worked at night and then I mostly just spent the whole day sleeping. My English was far from great and all my family was still in Russia. I knew it was time to make some changes in my life.
One day, I was searching the web for some stuff and I came across an ad that caught my eye immediately. Chaturbate, one of the more popular camming sites, was hiring new camgirls. I didn’t even know what it meant to be a cam model at the time, but it sounded very appealing, with the ad saying things like “flexible working hours” and “thousands of dollars a week”. I decided to apply.
If only I knew then what I know now.
The job was horrible. Not because of the job itself, but because I was naive, didn’t know what to do, and I chose the wrong site to work for. As great as this job can be if you find the right site and do everything right, it can be a million times worse if you don’t.
Long story short, the clients were rude and there was no one to complain to because they didn’t want to hear it, the pay was lousy too because I got only got a small percentage of the money that I actually earned. The saddest part is that I wasn’t aware that this is not the way it is actually supposed to work. I thought this was just the way the cookie crumbles in this industry.
But then an interesting thing happened and it changed my life completely.
I was talking to one of my friends and I decided to share my story with her. Nobody knew what I did to make a living, but at that point, I just needed to share my frustrations with someone. So I told her about my job and about how horrible the conditions were and then something totally shocking to me happened. She told me she worked as a camgirl as well, but in her experience, it was the best job ever.
She made around $3k a week, which was more than what I made in a month, she could create her schedule however she wanted, her privacy was well protected, and she was just sincerely happy.
At that point, I decided to quit my job and to try my luck working for the sites she was working for (I also learned that you can work on more than one site at a time).
I figured I didn’t have anything to lose and it was the best decision ever. And I have been working like that ever since and I couldn’t be happier. I have a plenty of time to spend with my child and it is a quality and stress-free time because my job doesn’t give me any headaches. It is a job I would recommend to every open minded girl out there.
Oh, and I also live in a huge condo and drive a shiny new BMW.
If you wonder how to be a cam girl, there are a few simple steps to take. The first and most important one is to find the right sites to work for in order for your experience to be pleasant and to get the most out of it. You can read more about this topic on the “best cam girl sites” page.
The next step is to create a profile. Your profile will be the first thing about you that every potential client sees, so make it as appealing as possible. If you wonder how to do that, you will find all of the answers on the “cam girl tips” page. Make sure to read it because it is full of useful information on how to become a successful cam girl. Those little details will make you stand out among-est the crowd and your earnings will skyrocket.
From that point on, you will create your own schedule and work as much or as little as you like. Keep in mind that the number of clients you attract is directly related to the amount of money you earn. Basically, if you need a couple hundred dollars more for an expensive pair of new shoes, you can simply work an hour longer to be able to afford it.
This is a job just like any other, but the difference is that you will be able to earn money from the comfort of your own home, while also having fun. If you enjoy what you do and have fun with it, the clients will notice that and it will mean more fun for them too, and as a result of that, better earnings for you as well.
It is by far one of the easiest and the safest jobs in the industry, and the best part is that anyone can do it. All you need is a computer, webcam and broadband Internet, not exactly a huge investment.
It is an awesome fulltime job, but it could also be a great way to earn some money on the side. You can create the schedule that fits your free time and your needs the best, and from there on, you can always modify it the way you like.
If you are an open minded girl searching for a great new job, your search is over. Give web-camming a try and you won’t regret it. Take this advice from a fellow cam girl who is very successful at her job and whose life has improved dramatically since she started doing it. If you decide it is not the right career for you after all, you can always quit, as no one will stop you. Anyway, my point is, you have nothing to lose.
