Get More Clicks

One of your goals as a cam model is to get as many views as possible. Why? Because more viewers equals more tip potential. Here’s a quick guide to getting more users in your chat room.

How to Get More Views

Posing Perfection

Cam websites take a “screenshot” of you every 30 seconds, and use that photo to advertise your chatroom on their main page. For this reason, you have to be very aware of what you’re doing, and the positions that you’re in. I was on camera one night, and realized that all the girls being advertised were all laying down. So by standing up, and offering something different to potential clients, my view count nearly doubled.

Timing

Picking the perfect times to get online can be tricky. Times with more audience traffic usually comes with more cam models being online, thus making it less likely for your camera to be chosen. Try a couple times of the day to see what works best for you. Personally, I found the weekends to always be busiest.

#Hashtag

A really great way to help users find you is by using hashtags in your chat room title. The top 10 hashtags that appear to be most commonly used are

  1. #asian
  2. #young
  3. #naked
  4. #lush or #lovesense
  5. #anal
  6. #18 or #teen
  7. #squirt
  8. #bigboobs
  9. #cum
  10. #new

*Quick tip: If you start a bot in your chat room, it will remove the hashtags from your title. Make sure to add them back after the bot is going!

Your Following

This last tip for getting views isn’t necessarily one I would recommend, but one I’ve seen work for other cam models. The idea is that the more followers you have, the more views you will have in the future since those following you have the link to your chatroom automatically saved in a special tab. How do you get guaranteed followers? By offering a full frontal nudity show in the free chat. Will you get more followers, and hence more views? Sure. Will you get paid for that show? Not really. Will you get lots of people who expect you to do such shows for free every time? Probably. 

Thanks for reading. Let me know what tips and tricks I missed.

Special Announcement Time 

I’m so excited to be introducing a new series to the website. Interviews! In this series, I will be interviewing cam models, and those with direct experiences with them. An interview will be posted the first Friday of every moth, so be sure to stay tuned. In the first blog of this series, you’ll meet Jonny, an interesting, and tech savvy gentleman who does coding for cam models on Chaturbate. See it first!

Setting the Stage

Step One to Your Show: Setting the Stage

Whether your first show is soon to happen, or you’re an experienced cam model, the atmosphere you design is a crucial part in getting views. Here are five things to consider when setting the stage for your audience.

Pick a Background

A lot of people in the cam world tend to start out by filming on their bed. The perk of this is that it’s comfortable, but the downside is that a majority of cam models have the same setting. I’ve heard of people doing quite well outside, in their bathrooms ect. Personally, I set up a rug on my floor to stay comfortable, but also to offer an alternative background for viewers.

*Quick Tip: double check there’s nothing in the background that could hint at your location, or who you are. Examples of this include flags, university logos, and so on.

Actually Clean

I’ve visited other models chat rooms, and the number one thing I notice clients being turned off by is a messy background. You need to realize these people are buying a fantasy. They don’t want to see your dirty socks next to you rolling around for the camera.

Music

Make a playlist of not only mood-setting music, but also music that you like. When traffic slows, you’ll be thankful for a song you can hum or sing along to while you wait for things to pick up. Just be sure to keep the music at a level where you can enjoy it, but your customers can still hear you speak clearly. They’re here for personality. It’s also worth noting that it’s much harder for someone to steal your show and post it as porn if you’re playing music since it becomes a copyright issue.

Lighting

Lighting and angles are the two most important aspects in making you look good for the camera. The best tip would be to set up your light source behind the camera. Invest in a great light if you can, but if not, a high power lamp will be just fine.

The Main Attraction

The main challenge of being a cam model is finding a way to stand out from the crowd. You aren’t going to be able to accomplish this by throwing on your nude undies and stained bra. Consider investing in matching underwear sets, lingerie, and even costumes. Catholic school girl, teacher, and cosplay tend to be costumes that get the most attention, but you can be creative and dress however you please. I once dressed up as a mermaid, since I have red hair. It didn’t last long, but I had a lot of fun with it! 

Toys

The final tip. When setting up up your surroundings, make sure you have your toys cleaned, and ready to be used. Perhaps even place them in the shot to grab viewers attention. To get sex toys, check out Pink Cherry or Lovense!

 

I hope these five tips to setting a stage was helpful. Be sure to catch next weeks blog about the entire reason we have this job… Money! Disclaimer: next weeks blog is about the technical stuff, but don’t worry, there will be one on tips to make more dough coming soon. Thanks for reading!

Before You Become a Cam Model

So, you’re thinking of becoming a cam girl? Great. Here is a brief list of things to consider, and things to do before you get started.

Some Things to Think About First

Your job.

This is arguably the most important thing to consider. While becoming an online model is a legal and valid way of making extra income, not all employers will view it that way. If you work with children, politics, or anything of the sorts, perhaps being a cam model is too risky.

Your clients.

When it comes to the men watching you, some moral conflicts can occur. A lot of them are married, and aren’t shy about it. Some will even want you to talk about their wives, or pretend she just caught him cheating. It’s a fantasy that you have to be willing to play along with. Aside from cheating clients, you also need to be aware that some men seem to be under the impression that they are “buying a girlfriend” and will want to always be in contact with you. Most importantly, you need to be aware that some clients will attempt to locate you. While there are plenty of precautions you can take to keep yourself safe, this will always be a risk.

Your time.

A lot of the appeal in working in this industry is that you get to make your own schedule. While this is true, being a cam girl will still take a lot of your time. To be successful, you’re going to need to make a regular schedule, and engage in social media while you aren’t on the clock. Snapchat was the demise of my cam model career, as it made me feel like I was constantly working.

Before You Start

Still want to become a cam girl? Glad to hear- there are lots of perks to the job. Here are some things you need to do before starting.

Social Media

Lock it down. Update your Facebook settings so that people can not search your name. Make your Instagram private and detach your real name to the account. Change your Snapchat username to a nickname. The last thing you want is for someone to accidentally stumble upon one of your personal social medias.

Social Media 2.0

When it comes to setting up social media for your cam girl persona, make sure you use an email specifically for this. Do not attach any social media to your personal email. You’re going to want an Amazon account, a Snapchat (probably), and a Twitter. Some also opt to have Skype, Kik, and Instagram but all of these are at your own digression.

Signing Up

To sign up, the website you use will need your real name, a scan of your ID, and a photo of you holding your ID close to your face. Your real information will be safe with your website.

Quick Tip: It can take a while to get verified. I remember having to re-submit my scans and photos upward of 10 times. Pay close attention to the guidelines, lighting, and angles (ie. the photo may not be accepted if admins cannot see the top of your head). It’ll happen.

I hope you enjoyed today’s blog. If you’ve decided on becoming a cam girl, good luck, be safe, and have fun! Check next week to read all about making money as a cam girl.
