How To Become A Camgirl

Webcam EquipmentGetting Started As A Camgirl

If you’re reading this, you’re probably considering becoming a camgirl. Camming is a great way to make good cash while working from home. You are your own boss and you get to play by your own rules. Pick your own schedule and work as much as you’d like. Camming is a fun and very social experience, and you’ll make good money and get spoiled by your regular customers. Here’s the steps to get started as a camgirl.

 

Choosing Camgirl Stage-Name / Alias

Before you even consider picking out a cam network and performing live, the very first step is picking out your camgirl alias. This is a very important step and shouldn’t be underplayed. This is the name you’ll be going by everytime you’re on cam. It’ll also be the name you go by on all your camming-related social media networks or any other adult networks that you join. It should be a real name (but not your real name), something sexy and something you like. It’s not a good idea to switch aliases during the career, as it’ll confuse your regulars and make it more difficult to find you.

Here’s some tips for choosing a camgirl alias.

 

Decide What Services and Camming Shows You’ll Offer

This is another huge step you should do before you start getting on cam. It’s important to know your limits and what you want to do, what you’re willing to do and what you’re not willing to do. There’s going to be guys out there that try getting you to do some things that you won’t feel comfortable doing. By having a menu of what you’re comfortable with, as well as listing what’s off-limits, you’ll be able to point to the services you offer and what you won’t do. Publically listing this on your profile page will help the fans who are interested in your shows find you easier, and it’ll save the time and trouble of people requesting things you specify that you’re not going to do.

Also, think about what kind of shows you can offer. When hosting a show, you’ll be working towards tip goals. Once a tip goal is met, you perform the show. You should never get on cam without first deciding what kind of shows you’ll put on and how much money it’ll take before the shows begin. It’s important to have mini goals along the way and you can’t give away too much too early, or it lowers the incentive for your chat room to keep tipping. Never give anything away without tips or meeting a tip goal. Always pre plan your shows and it’s a smart idea to brainstorm a couple shows before registering and getting started.

 

Get All The Required Equipment For Camming

In order to start camming, you’ll need a computer, highspeed internet and a webcam. It’s possible to cam with a stock laptop webcam, but an HD webcam is highly recommended. Even if you don’t already own one, purchasing one will pay itself off fast, as HD webcams attract more visitors and keep them in your chatroom longer. You’ll also need a digital form of identification to prove that you’re eighteen years old or older.

You’ll also need a place to cam. This should be a clean and clutter-free room. A cluttered room is distracting and takes the attention off of you. You don’t want to be camming in a dirty room as it’ll make you look like a slob. Fans are interested in clean and classy camgirls and you don’t want them thinking that you’re dirty and sleazy. It’s also good to have a distraction-free environment. You don’t want someone knocking or walking in on you while performing a show.

 

Selecting A Camming Network

Now it’s finally time to select a camming network. The different camming networks come with different features. There’s no “best” network, and what works for one camgirl might not work best for the next one. Browse the various networks and try to find the perfect fit for you. Make sure that your computer meets the software and hardware specifications given by the network. Here’s a list of camming networks looking for camgirls to help get you started.

 

Building a Fanbase / Following

As a beginner camgirl, you’ll have no real following or fanbase. This is okay, and the network traffic will start bringing people into your chatroom on day one, but having a fanbase will definitely help and increase your earnings. A lot of this is just time. The longer you’re around, the more regulars you’ll attract. It’s also a very good idea to start doing some of your own marketing. There’s lots of ways to market yourself as a camgirl. A website and at least a basic understanding of SEO is very important. Social media is another major avenue that you should be exploring. It’s important to build your following up on the camming network as well as off the camming network. Your social media followers might someday join the network and start watching you perform live.

Learning The Camming Best Practices

It’ll take time to master the art of camming. There’s a lot to learn, especially when it comes to attracting people into your chatroom, keeping them in your chat and getting tips out of them. Don’t expect to learn everything overnight! Learning the camming best practices takes time. A good trick is to check out some of the top performing camgirls and see what they’re doing differently and what works for them. It’s also a good idea to join the various camming forums and communities and ask any questions you might have.

Keep in mind that what works for one camgirl might not work for you. Each model is different and certain techniques work differently for different models. It’s going to take time to learn what works best for you and it’s a lifelong learning experience.

 

Consider Offering Other Adult Services

Camming is a lucrative income, but it’s not the only way to make a living in the adult industry. There’s also many other ways to get started as an amateur adult star. By expanding the type of services you offer, it’s possible to create new revenue streams while also building up your name recognition as a camgirl. Here are some of the other adult services that you should consider offering:

Selling adult pics and videos – In addition to live streaming, it’s also possible to sell your adult pic and video sets. There are many adult marketplace sites for doing just that, and they take care of the payment processing and fulfillment of the purchases products. Selling amateur porn is great because it’s a residual income. Once the content is uploaded to the site, sales will occur organically earning you a passive income. Joining these adult marketplace sites and selling content over them is also a great way to gain exposure for your live camming show.

Sell Skype shows – Skype shows differ from camming because Skype is always going to be 1-on-1. This makes it more personal and intimate and camgirls can charge more money for Skype shows.

Phone sex / sexting – You can get paid from talking and texting directly from your mobile phone. All phone calls and texts are routed through 3rd party software, keeping your name and phone number safe and secure. Your real number will never be exposed to the callers.
