Getting into the webcam modeling world for the first time can be a bit intimidating for new cam girls because it’s not exactly clear, for those who are inexperienced, what should be done to bring in the big money. Should you get naked at the beginning of a session, or should you stay clothed until someone tips? Should you talk a lot, or just sit pretty? Should you use Snapchat to promote your cam, or is it not worth bothering. I’m going to answer these questions and more as I lay out EXACTLY how to make money on webcam as a new cam model…and not just some money, but GREAT money!
Okay, so the first thing you need to do before becoming a webcam model is to decide where you want to start camming. And by that, I mean which particular cam site you want to broadcast at. As many of my longtime readers know, I’m big on Chaturbate as the best place for new cam girls to start their camming careers at. This conclusion was just recently reinforced by the latest site traffic rankings released by SimilarWeb.
It shows that Chaturbate is now ranked in the top 50 sites on the web for US traffic, which is just crazy for a cam site. Their traffic has been exploding in the last few years, and Chaturbate is now the most heavily visited cam site out there. This is great for newb cam girls trying to webcam for money because it means tons of EXPOSURE, even if you’re new and don’t have your fan base built up yet.
So yeah, signup for Chaturbate here and get approved as a webcam model, because that’s where things are happening currently.
The Basics of Webcam Money Making
Once you’re approved as a cam model, you want to get on cam and broadcast consistently for at least a week or two. That means, you want to pick a time of day to broadcast (maybe mornings, maybe afternoons, maybe evenings) and go on cam EVERY day for like a week, at least (at those same times). The reason this is so important is that doing this will allow members to become familiar with you by getting exposed to you multiple times. With more familiarity, they come to like you more and more, then they will eventually start tipping you. This is how tipping cam girls happens — it’s all about members getting closer and closer to you over time until they like you enough, on a personal level, to spend money on you.
Many newbies to webcam modeling try a camming session or two, find that nobody tips them, then quickly give up and go back to work at the Dairy Queen. This is such a big mistake, like, I can’t even put it in words. Okay, pleaseee, and I mean pretty pleaseeee don’t be one of these people! You need to understand that, when you’re brand new, pretty much NOBODY will tip you. You may be super hot, you may have a great personality, but if members just found you and they haven’t built up any kind of bond with you, it’s extremely unlikely that they will spend any significant amount of money on you. Yeah, it might happen, but it usually doesn’t.
So, make sure you give it your all for the first week or two and really put your back into it. Don’t expect to make any money doing webcam work the first few sessions. Just go into it expecting that, and you won’t stand to be disappointed. After you’ve got several camming sessions under your belt, you will see that the tips will start growing and growing and growing because members who have gotten into you will start spending big. After a few weeks, you may be bringing in SERIOUS tips…the kind that make webcam models shriek with excitement!
Best Camming Tactics For Newbs
When you’re in your room and you see that your room count (number of viewers) is really low, you may need to get aggressive in terms of attracting people to your cam. One of the easiest things to do is to just get naked. Generally speaking, a naked cam girl will get more viewers in her room than a clothed cam girl. So, if your room count ain’t cutting it, just get topless, or go Full Monty and just lounge. Viewers should slowly begin popping in to check you out. Once you’ve got a good number of people in there, you can begin talking and trying to stimulate some conversation. Make your room as interesting as you can. You can do this by just being yourself. Open up and talk about your interests (TV shows, music, anime, gaming, you name it).
As viewers get to know you, they will become more talkative and your room will be more active (and more money will get spent). This is a process that takes a bit of time, so don’t be discouraged if, at first, your viewers behave like total zombies (we’ve all gone through this, don’t worry). They will redeem themselves eventually, though, if you do your job right. It’s all about making them feel comfortable and welcome.
Think about it, when you show up at a party, do you just immediately start talking to everyone? Of course not, you need to slowly mingle and get used to people. You need to become comfortable with a stranger before you start gabbing your heart out with the person. Well, it’s the same in a chat room. Your viewers will start talking if you’re nice, personable, interesting, and open towards them.
Practice makes perfect when trying to get your room active, so just keep at it. I remember how hard I had to try when I first started attempting to webcam for money, and it wasn’t pretty. But I had no clue what I was doing and had to experiment madly. YOU have me, sooooo. What’s your excuse?? LOL
How To Use Snapchat To Webcam For Money
One tactic that very few cam girl advice sites talk about when teaching how to make money on webcam is the use of Snapchat to attract more devoted fans to your camming session. Now, most girls who webcam for money don’t use Snapchat the way I’m going to recommend here, but it’s a stunningly effective secret tactic that I definitely think lots more cam girls should use.
Most cam models have a “premium” Snapchat account that they sell access to. This can produce some nice side money, and it’s almost like having a paysite because it can bring in some monthly recurring income, which is awesome. But when you’re a new cam girl, you shouldn’t be worried about selling premium Snapchat subscriptions, you should be leveraging a FREE Snapchat account to warmup viewers and boost your room counts when you cam.
The way this is done is to simply have a free “public” Snapchat account where you basically tease, share things about yourself, and just generally kind of bond with your followers. This accelerates the bonding process with fans that I described above. When you go on cam and begin a broadcast, announce to your free Snapchat followers that you’re live and you’ll have more devoted viewers in your room. That will mean more talking, more activity, and more TIPPING!
Promote your free Snapchat account EVERYWHERE, including in your room topic on Chaturbate, and on your Twitter or Instagram profiles. Cam girl fans LOVE free Snapchats, so you’ll get a lot of followers this way, and it will make it so much easier to get actual tippers in your room that you won’t believe it!
Okay, that’s about it, but don forget to signup as a model at Chaturbate and get the ball rolling, if you haven’t yet. Also, check out my advanced Chaturbate Model Hacks here for more on how to totally kick butt on that site!
