Do you think you have what it takes to be a successful model on a live sex cam site? This sounds like an easy job, but it’s not. First of all, not everyone has that appealing and magnetic sexual energy, and this is probably the most important characteristic any cam girl or boy needs, no matter how old you are and what your sexual orientation is. It’s not just about being pretty or handsome and sexy, there are many things you have to think about. Maybe anyone can try to be a cam site model, but not everyone will succeed and go far after choosing this profession. If you do think you have a flair for this, and you want to become a big name in this biz, here are some useful tips that should help you earn a lot, no matter what company you choose to apply for.
Do you have all the necessary equipment?
Every live sex cam site model knows that, in order to be successful, you need all the adequate materials. Investing in the equipment that you need may suck because you want to earn money, and not spend it. But this is a smart investment, and it should attract you many viewers. Professional models use Logitech webcams, and you can try Logitech Brio or Logitech c920. You can use Blue Snowball microphone, or maybe Blue Yeti USB. They use XSplit or ManyCam webcam software, and Softbox Kit lighting. These tools are very helpful, and you will need sex toys if you want to work for companies that have sex toy features on their sites.
Inform yourself well
This could easily be the first tip, but it should be among the first ones because it is of high importance that you inform yourself well. Not just what equipment to buy, but also what sites are good, who your competition will be, how much you can earn from this or that, and all that jazz. You can also start your journal and write down goals and accomplishments, this is always very beneficial. Don’t just read blogs that tell you about these things. Ask people who already do this job, someone you can meet. Articles on the web can be very informative, but it is always to talk to people who have experience with these things.
Choosing an enticing, catchy name
This may not seem important, but it is. Names that are more enticing are usually more popular because people will rather click on something juicy. You don’t have to be too creative to come up with a sexy name, you can find some suggestions online, or see the usernames of other models. But some sites prefer models use their full names, while other companies encourage you to have catchy monikers. It should be something sexy, fun and easy to remember.
Invest in sexy outfits and toys
If you are ready to invest in the proper equipment, why wouldn’t you be willing to buy yourself cool outfits and sex toys as well? There are live sex cam sites that have this Lovense feature for the users. They can pay extra to see you play with toys. And even if you don’t work for a company with this feature, you should always have something sexy in your closet and night stand. Buy beautiful lingerie, provocative dresses and costumes for those who like roleplay. You should investigate what characters people are into right now, and try to get costumes for them. Roleplay is always a success, but only if you are ready to get out of your comfort zone.
Consistency is crucial
Once you start this business, it would be best if you were regular. Maybe you can succeed even if you work part time, but you should have the same schedule every week. If you work 8 hours this week, then 2 hours the next week, and after that you don’t work for two weeks, your business probably won’t thrive. Users like performers who are consistent, serious and hard-working. You will gain loyal followers and more people will keep coming back if you also keep coming back. It might take time to reach that desired number of followers, but you will be there faster if you work more often, and it would be best to work every day, excluding the weekends.
Try more platforms
The most successful pornstars and models are folks that tries working with multiple platforms. You can work on Chaturbate, StripChat and have an OnlyFans account. Of course, you should see if your company allows it. Perhaps some companies don’t approve of their workers having many accounts on various sites. If you work for CamSoda, maybe you won’t be allowed to also work for Naked, but you should inform yourself on this matter. And they probably won’t mind if you open an OnlyFans account, but there are some rumors that this app won’t be smutty anymore.
Let other models inspire you
Don’t be vain and smug. Don’t be full of yourself and think that only you matter. That only you are the one who should become huge. You are not the only person who deserves the spotlight, you share it with many other talented girls, boys and t-girls. And because of that, feel free to get inspired by your colleagues. Never copy them, but if they give you ideas, you can take advantage of it. With so many beautiful models, who do their jobs perfectly, you always have those who will motivate you to become better.
Focus on getting better and better
And this leads us here. This is actually a piece of advice for every profession, every job. When you keep learning new things and working on yourself, you grow and become more confident and good at what you do. Being a cam site model doesn’t just mean looking pretty and smiling. You have to learn new things, meet all kinds of people and assess their types of personality, you have to inform yourself on the market, the industry, the toys, the equipment… And of course, you always have room for improvement in the field of your own personality. You can always become more confident, nicer, sexier… There are always so many things to work on! It’s a job that never ends.
Extras are perfect for even more cash
In the webcam world, you always have various ways to earn more income. There are the basics and the extras, and you should be ambitious and explore all your options. For instance, you can strip and masturbate on a cam site, but together with this, you can try phone chat. Here you also have to be resourceful and find all these juicy opportunities. You have to read a lot and spend time exploring the web, the industry. If you really want to be huge and popular, you should try as many things as possible because that will enrich your resume and you will feel more confident because of it.
Choose the niche you are good at
Or something that doesn’t make you feel like it is not for you. Ok, maybe you want to stick to vanilla categories. Some models will be inclined to try kinkier acts, maybe BDSM and all kinds of fetish sites. Do fetish sites pay more? Probably. But if you don’t see yourself doing it, don’t force it. But there will be more words on this later in the text.
Authenticity is always the key
Everyone will tell you to be authentic because people get sick of the same old stuff. We always search for something new, refreshing, interesting and unique. It is not easy to be one-of-a-kind, but you should just try to be yourself and don’t copy your co-workers. If you are attracted by this profession, you are probably charismatic and special already, so just work with what you have. But to become even more authentic, remember to work on yourself and develop skills and talents not all models can say they have as well. It’s easier said than done, but you can do it!
Don’t say no to unusual kinks
Ok, the entry a few paragraphs ago says that you should stick to the usual if unusual makes you feel bad. But if you want to become one-of-a-kind and remarkable, you should do things that make your resume more luxurious. Things that make you leave your comfort zone. If you can’t do kinkier stuff, don’t push it. But if you are open-minded and sexually free, why not try something strange if that will bring you more fans and money? Think about it, it’s not the worst thing to try something more perverted.
Start your own blog
Fans like to read about their favorite models and performers, and pornstars who have their own blogs have even more followers. As a model, you need loyal viewers, someone who will come back every week, day, etc. The more views you have, the more money you will make and be more popular, of course. But give them something, write about your experiences, go personal. Tell them about your everyday life, reveal some secrets, talk about your activities, plans maybe… Post a sexy pic or two, that is something everyone likes! After all, you want to be a cam girl/boy/t-girl. You are not shy.
Eye contact is very effective
When you watch porn, and we assume you do, don’t you like those girls that always stare at the camera so naughtily and confidently? They are the ones who tease us, inflame us, turn us on. We like that nasty look, especially when they are doing something indecent. As a cam site model, you will need to look at the camera, at your audience. That will make them fall in love. People like this approach, it’s legit and scientifically verified.
Come up with unique ideas, or hire someone to help you with this
If you have an innovative brain and you are creative with things you do and like, presenting something new and different shouldn’t be a problem. You can think of an extraordinary outfit, or a specific look you think people will appreciate. If you aren’t that creative and too playful, you can hire someone to help you get to some wild, awesome ideas. Some people are controlled by the right brain hemisphere, others by the left. Find someone who is an artistic soul maybe, who always knows how to think of something new and magical. Pay them, it will pay off. In this biz, it’s not a good idea to be a cheapskate because the more you give, the more you will receive. This is actually a philosophy of life as well.
Experiment with features and don’t be shy
If you work for a company that offers many features, you should become familiar with all of them. If they have those roulette games, or Lovense toy settings, learn everything about it all! You should experiment with the site, with your services, with your audience… When we experiment, we always discover and invest something new, and new is always good. Well, it should be. You will be more enticing to users of any live sex cam site if you know how to do a little bit of everything.
Don’t get naked for free
With these things, you have to be clever. If you reveal and expose everything too soon, people won’t come back often because they will get bored easily. You need to tease them, torture them even because that is what we like – sweet torture of having to wait for something we want, but knowing we will get it. Whenever you can, charge for a service that you offer. If you have to be nude, don’t do it for free. If celebs can get paid millions to expose their private parts, so can everyone!
Be persistent and don’t give up easily
Some models start with high expectations, and they think it is going to be easy. They think they will earn a lot of money right away, and they just have to be sexy. It’s not how it works. It takes time you build your reputation; people have to view a lot of your shows before they decide you are their favorite. You have to be hard-working for a certain period of time to go to top 50, top 25 and top 5 models! It takes effort, time, patience and dedication. If you are ready to be persistent, and you know that you won’t become too successful overnight, you can try it!
Be open to collaborations
Do you think you can share the spotlight with other models? Sometimes this will be very beneficial for your career! You will have sex with attractive people and you will earn more because some visitors of live sex cam sites like couples! Lesbian scenes, straight scenes, scenes with ladyboys, all of these acts are appreciated and the more you try, the more luck you will have with your fans.
Be ready to leave your comfort zone
Being a model on any live sex cam site means that you have to get out of your comfort zone a lot. At least until you get used to it. It is not easy to get naked and masturbate in front of many aroused people, and it can be embarrassing. This job is for the brave and the most sexually open folks out there! Only if you think this is not too terrifying, you have one of the things you need to be a good cam person who earns a lot.
Free and private shows are not the same, but learn about both of them
This is going to be brief – just learn all the differences between free shows and private shows. Private shows are paid more, you have more responsibilities, more work… Before you choose your preferred platform, you need to learn all you can about everything.
Build your own brand, unique and sexy
When you start your career as a cam model, you will have to build your own one-of-a-kind brand, something recognizable that will make people talk about you and spread the word. Well, do they really spread the word that they spend time on cam sites? Probably not, but if you have your own brand that is not like anything else, the chances are high you will attract more clicks.
Work on your confidence and skills
You already know this, but we will just remind you – always try to learn new sexy things, become a better lover, more confident with sex toys and costumes, and so on. But the more you are in this story, the more things you will know after a while. So, before we end this article, we just want to wish you a good luck! If you look good, feel confident and have all this knowledge, you can go far! You are unstoppable and you can become the next best thing in this live sex cam world!
