Privates vs. Password Shows

This week’s post was going to be on being gay as a cam model, but in all honestly I ended up needing to write it in a public space. Since there’s an older gentlemen continuously looking at my screen, I chose to take a different route and do a technical piece for you. Glancers understand that less.

When I started, I thought private’s and password shows were essentially the same. They’re not. Here’s a quick post on the difference.

Password Shows

  • When you start a password show, it kicks the audience out of your room, and they won’t be able to return until you’re off.
  • There is no option for your other viewers to “spy” on your show. I had viewers who were super into this idea, as it made them feel like they were getting something more exclusive. It’s a good option to bring in those kind of people.

New girls beware: When I first started, I had someone try and convince me to set a phrase in the password show section, saying that it would get me more views, as it acted as a hashtag. That didn’t make much sense to me so I didn’t do it, but in case someone is a little smarter about how they phrase it to you, just know they’re scamming you for a free show.

  • Money: Always take your tokens up front for these shows because you will hear “I’ll pay you in a gift” or “I want to make sure I like your show before I pay you”. That pay cheque will never come.

Private Shows

  • -When you leave for a private show, your other viewers won’t be given the boot. A message will appear across your screen to let them know you’re in a private, and they can leave your cam open if they please.
  • -In my opinion, private shows are where it’s at. Because you get paid by the minute, this is where you can get dirty and make your killing. And people know that this is where you get scandalous, so not only will you be collecting tokens from the primary client, but also from those paying to “spy” on the show.
  • -Money 2.0: The website does the work for you. If your client runs out of tokens, the private show will automatically end. There’s no guess work. It’s great.

 

A final note before you go: Don’t be that girl that obviously drags things out to keep them in your private show longer. It makes for bad business. Keep it subtle.

  1. Add a minimum time requirement to your show.
  2. Instead of asking how they are, talk dirty to them before taking off any clothes.
  3. Instead of being neutral, prolong your fake orgasm and pretend to be edging.

Make it rain, girl, make it rain.

Check back next week for our scheduled post about being gay as a cam girl!

Socializing Naked

I’m going to start this article off with a quick burst of honesty. As an online model, I hated social media, and couldn’t stand to use anything but Twitter. Sure, it’s quick and seemingly easy money, but it makes it so that your viewers can contact you at any point in your day, instead of just when you’re on camera. This led me to feeling like I was constantly working, and ultimately caused me to dread the sound of SnapChat notifications. Here’s a few quick tips to make social media as a cam girl less about working 24/7, and more about creating a more fun and intimate experience for your clients.

Twitter

Twitter is the #1 social media used by models, and viewers. It’s relatively common that cam models have a free account, where they can post when their viewing or if there’s any change to their schedules. It can also be a great way to interact with your followers, without getting too involved (ie. surveys, like this tweet if..”). The key to this, however, is to ignore your direct messages. Save the one on one conversations for paid content, otherwise everyone will just use your free platform. Wouldn’t you?

 

SnapChat

If you haven’t already figured out, I despised SnapChat. It was ten dick pics in a row followed by a black screen with the words “Show pussy. I got a big tip waiting for u so I deserve it xx” written across it. Repeat. To avoid this, set extremely clear boundaries about your expectations. For example:

SnapChat is 369 tokens. No dick pics, or demands… unless they’re asked for 😉 Snap you soon! 

My flatmate, who was also an online model, would only check her social media 6 days of the week. She said it was a crucial part in keeping her from feeling like her job revolved around her part time job as a cam girl. Furthermore, for no reason should you ever feel guilty for deleting someone who does not respect your boundaries.

 

Instagram

I didn’t actually use Instagram as a model, so perhaps I don’t have a whole lot of room to talk about it. Here’s what I know from checking out other models accounts, and from talking with those who used it. Not many people will pay to follow your Instagram, as they usually feel they can just see you naked in the chat room. If they’re paying for the platform, clients will typically want to use something where they can chat with you.

Skype

Treat Skype as a platform for private shows. Take the money upfront, and make sure to keep an eye on the time so that you aren’t giving more than they paid for. Also, it’s worth noting that Chaturbate will not let you send messages containing the word Skype. If a customer is inquiring, insert a space between each letter so the algorithm doesn’t pick up on what you’re trying to communicate.

 

Email

Not really a social media, but it seemed relevant enough to include it. Since you have to make an email to set up any social media for your online persona, you might as well use it. Email is an awesome way to arrange privates, and you can attach it to your Amazon account to know when someone has purchased an item from your wish list.

 

 

A Couple More Quick Tips

  1. Remember this is your job. Stay professional, and don’t use any social media to rant. It’s not a cute look.
  2. You can make deals! If your social medias went for 400 tokens ea., why not sell two together for 600? Even in the cam world, people love a good Buy One, Get One 50%
  3. Turn off your push notifications so that messages from your clients aren’t appearing on your phone screen. You wouldn’t want someone from your real life to see that, and say “who’s messaging you?”
  4. As Rosie says, “know your value plus tax”. It can be hard to pick a price for your social media, as you want to start off more inexpensive and increase price upon increased demand. Try your best not to undercharge!

 

Social media can be a lot of fun, and is a fantastic way to get to know your viewers. It’s also an effective way to let them know about changes in your schedule, or any other relevant information. It’s totally up to you what you want to use, and how you want to use it! I hope you enjoyed this post, and I look forward to seeing you in the next one. (It’s about butts!!)

Chat Settings: Chaturbate

Welcome to a brief guide to understanding your chat settings on Chaturbate. Let’s just jump right into it.

Screen Shot 2018-06-09 at 8.40.12 PM.png

Font & Size

When you’re on camera, it can be hard to read what your viewers are saying in the free chat. To avoid some unattractive squinting, maximize the size of font, and change the colour to committing that pops out to you.

Settings > Font Size > 20pt

Settings > Chat Color > Chose your colour

On occasion, the chat may randomly turn back to the default settings. Don’t worry, it only takes a moment to change it back to your preferred settings again.

“Notify When Leaving”

A default setting of the website is to notify you whenever mods, fans, and users with tokens leaves your room. I found this to be both distracting, and annoying. To turn this off:

Settings > Notify on Leave For > No Users

You can also do this for notifying you when someone enters the room, but personally I recommend leaving it on so you can be sure to greet those users.

Adding Gif’s

To add graphics to your chat type a semicolon (:), followed by a word to prompt options to chose from.

For example :tipifyoulike or :dancingBear

Removing Grey Users

“Grey users” or “Greys” are Chaturbate members who have not purchased any tokens, and therefore cannot tip you. I had a few grey regulars who were pretty respectful, and just enjoyed coming to my chat room to hang out, and enjoy the show. There are, however, a lot of grey users who demand models show their bodies, and engage in sexual acts without tips. As you can imagine, this gets pretty frustrating, so some chose to block grey users from typing in their chats. Here’s how:

Settings > Chats Allowed By: > Users who have tokens

There are a nice few ways to customize your chat. Play with your settings, and figure out what works best for you! Thank you for checking out this “Technically Speaking” article.

Interview: Chaturbate Profile Designer

Welcome to the first post of the Interviews series! To start things off, I decided to reach out to the man who coded for me when I was a cam model. Meet Jonny, better known as leedsladlooking4 on Chaturbate.

What is coding?

Html code is used to create electronic documents that are displayed on the web. Pages can contain a series of connections to other pages called hyperlinks. It can also be used to display hosted pictures.

Why is it important that cam models having coding on their pages?

I believe the best way for a cam model to be successful is to create a brand, much like any other business. And having a nice colourful and informative page is a great way to achieve this.

How much do you charge?

I charge 1000 tokens to create a profile, for that I include future updates such as birthdays/competitions/fan club members adding etc

*1000 tokens is equal to $50.00

How long does it take you?

A really intricate profile can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours.

When you coded for me, you didn’t ask for my password. Is there any reason a profile designer would need to sign in as the model?

No, and they shouldn’t unless they trust their guy a lot. I had one girl ask me to log into her account to set up apps and bots but I believe it is something Chaturbate has a policy against. It’s not needed for the bio code. That is just a simple copy and paste at the models end.

What is your favourite thing to code?

The pages that have lots of information on them, sometimes a profile can look a little bare if there is not much to work from.

Anything you would like to add?

I think Chaturbate is a great site to meet interesting people, and see boobs while you are doing it!

I highly recommend that whether you’re new or experienced in the industry, you check out Jonny’s page. In my experience, he has been nothing but respectful, and his work is among the best to chose from. Check out examples of Jonny’s work, or visit his twitter to inquire about his services.
