Being a webcam model is one of the easiest jobs in the adult industry, offering excellent pay, flexible hours, and the comfort of working from your own home. However, more and more people are becoming attracted to this industry as a way to earn extra income and standing out from the crowd is essential if you want to become a successful cam model. There is potential to earn thousands of dollars a week if you follow some basic guidelines:
Have a Great Profile
Your profile is an essential part of attracting new customers into your chat room. It can be viewed even when you are offline, offering reasons for a potential client to come back and view your cam when you are back online. Be sure to have high quality pictures that can grab someone’s attention. There is no point in having low resolution pictures as people will simply skip by to view the profile of someone who is displaying pictures with a better quality.
Try to put up several pictures which display your talents without giving too much away. Teasing photos and sexy pictures are a great way to catch client’s attention and entice them into your room. Choose the most attention grabbing picture as your profile picture, which is the one that will be listed when you are online. Take the time to fill out all the information boxes too, such fetishes or kinks so that members who are searching for similar qualities can easily find you.
Being prepared before going on cam is essential as you don’t want to disappear half-way through a show to hunt down an accessory or fix the lighting. Try and use a high quality webcam, the higher resolution of the picture you display the more customers you will gain. Have at least two light sources in order to prevent the glare from the monitor ruining your look. The picture quality is a huge factor in attracting clients.
Have a good background setup. There is no use performing in a room that is messy or poorly decorated as this will detract from your performance. You can use a fancy bedspread, cushions or candles to set the mood if you like. Have all your props and accessories close at hand. If you have everything you need close by, you can show it off as a teaser for a private show.
This is when you can display your talents and personality which is going to win over customers and make you extremely successful. The most important thing to do on cam is to have fun, don’t sit there looking bored or distracted as this won’t appeal to users scanning the available models. People will be more likely to give you tips and take you into private shows if you look like you have a fun personality.
Use your microphone to communicate with people in the chat room. People much prefer to hear you talking than watch you typing and using audio offers the opportunity to giggle and flirt easily with customers. Don’t give too much away for free but instead tease and seduce customers into a private show.
Finally, make sure you maintain an online presence for fans and new clients alike. Set up a twitter profile under your model pseudonym and actively maintain it. Make sure you acknowledge new followers and reply to all tweets directed at you. You can also set up a personal blog or website to promote yourself. Be sure to announce upcoming shows to gain more viewers and you will be a successful webcam model in no time!
