If you are reading this article you have at least a minor interest in becoming a Webcam Model and are now gathering the much needed information on how to become a Webcam Model.
The first thing you need to realize is that there are hundreds of cam girl sites out there, with thousands of Webcam models all having the same goal – making money with their looks, skills and sensuality. With other words you are going to have a lot of competition and it may take a while to become noticed enough to carve out a decent income for yourself.
You need to be willing to work hard at marketing yourself regardless if you choose to work for a large cam girl site or if you opt to become an independent webcam girl.
Research is very important in order to find your niche market as well. If you have a specific skill or a certain look to you, it is beneficial to specialize yourself in one or two niches. Some of these niches include BBW, fetish, roleplaying, BDSM, unusual insertions just to mention a few. Most cam girls make the mistake to enter the webcam modeling world in the mainstream sector, which makes it extremely difficult to stick out enough to build a good client base.
If you opt to become an independent webcam model you want to make certain you have a well build website which you can market and update regularly. A blog website is ideal for this. Independent cam girls have the benefit of setting their own hours, making their own rates and of course making their own rules within the boundaries of the law. Of course the downside is that you need work twice at hard at marketing yourself and finding the correct advertisement venues for yourself. That is not as difficult as it sounds, but rather time consuming. The end payoff however makes it all worthwhile in the end, since you do not have to work for a pittance as you may have to for one of the large cam girl sites.
The mega cam girl sites on the other hand give you the benefit of being already established with usually a big client base. Which means your views might be higher at the beginning and you can build your client base from there. I personally would suggest a mixture of both. Make sure you read the terms of service for each cam site in order to find out if they allow this or not. Be aware that big companies expect you to work a minimum amount of hours a week, regardless if you make any money or not. You are also required to do a certain amount of shows in “free chat”.
Contrary to popular belief becoming a webcam model is not easy or quick money, but it can be a lot of fun and very lucrative over time if you have the right type of personality and work ethics.
Some of the best webcam models make upwards of $1000 a week. Of course they also invest back into their own business with quality website setups, webcam equipment and a nice variety of clothing and toys.
Now the question is, do you have what it takes to become the next super star cam girl?
