If you are asking how to be a model on an adult webcam site this post will be very insightful for you. Until today we had not written on the topic of becoming an adult webcam model and how the ladies got started in the adult webcam industry for one reason. That reason was, truth-be-told we really did not know ourselves. Our end of the business really is focused on testing and trying out the adult webcam sites and then writing detailed reviews. Since we had no expertise in this other topic we refrained from sharing the tidbits of information we did gather, mostly by accident from various outside sources.
However, this past week I took more than 30 hours to compare the various methods by which someone can get started in internet model or, ‘become a webcam model’. So today that is what I am going to be talking about…
Adult webcam models are oftentimes referred to as merely ‘cam model’, so let’s start off by familiarizing you with the lingo. We will still call them adult webcam models throughout this post but I want to enlighten any newbies as best possible as to the basics terms they will encounter as they do more research. First off, RULE #1 common sense to most, clearly this is an adult industry. Everyone including those reading the blog post should be over 18.
If you are not 18 PLEASE LEAVE NOW!
The most obvious benefit of internet modeling is the ability to be your own boss, work from home, and answer to nobody. The next huge benefit is the opportunity to make more than most people do working full-time salary jobs in less than, thereby creating more free time to enjoy your personal life. However, since adult webcam modeling or nude internet modeling is a commission-based job you are only paid when you get customers to pay. Since 90% of the business is men-paying women we’ll refer to that frame of reference in this post, but do realize that men and transsexuals are also in demand for internet modeling as well. However, as a general rule, they do not make as much money. There are exceptions of course. Anyway, my point is that you will want to make sure that A. You feel comfortable participating in sexual activities live on webcam and B. That you are good at enticing men to go into private or exclusive paid shows. Both A. and B are necessary matches as clearly if you are not comfortable with the nature of the job than you are not going to be successful at it.
Another huge benefit of internet modeling is that you can work from anywhere and travel. That is what draws many young women into cam modeling in the first place.
Another big benefit is developing a brand of sorts and generating content in the form of videos that you can earn money from over an extended amount of time. These videos at some adult webcam sites will be monetized earning you money even when you are not on cam!
Low overhead is another benefit of adult webcam modeling considering the only investment on the part of the model is a high-speed internet connection and a decent quality webcam. What other businesses can you start where you are your own boss for less than $100.00 U.S. dollars total out-of-pocket expense? The truth is not even a lawn mowing business will cost less. And who want to mow lawns for $5.00 an hour? Right?
The #1 tip or trick that experienced webcam models will tell new adult webcam models or those new to internet modeling is engage with your audience and be yourself and be able to transcend the webcam; in other words to be a pro at performing on adult webcams you need to act as if it is your domain and your comfortable. You also want to establish your brand from the word go. That means choosing a very unique webcam girl / performer name. Think ahead and come up with something that is VERY ORIGINAL! The more original the better as you will use this like a musician will use their stage name; it will go with you everywhere you go. Also keep in mind you may be broadcasting on a number of different sites over time so the more original the name the more likely it will be available on all the adult webcam platforms.
Requirements are again…
1. being OVER 18
2. Having a high-speed internet connection
3. Feeling comfortable on cam ( A little-known secret is that if you are a bit shy at first that may actually be good for business as men love to watch brand new cam models.) So do not worry too much if you are still a bit nervous when you start.
The fastest-growing segment in adult entertainment is the adult webcam business. The reality is that over 400,000 women in the U.S. alone in 2014 did an adult webcam show. For every performer, there are about 350 men watching cams meaning that the market is huge and expected to continue to grow.
Across the industry, the average income for a cam model that worked 6 hours a day 4 days a week was $2,000.00 according to our research.
That is of course $8,000.00 a month which is a lot of money.
NO! The truth is just as is the case with dating, you will find that everyone is attracted to different things. Part of the mass appeal of adult webcams is the amateur and more real or raw sexiness of women when their not all selected based on a standard of what a model should look like. This allows real sex appeal that is more untamed and more natural as far as men and women finding what looks they really find sexually appealing. Therefore, some of the most successful or highest-earning webcam models would never get a second look in the world of actual print modeling.
UPDATE: WE NOW ONLY SUGGEST 1 SITE BASED ON DISCUSSIONS WITH NUMEROUS MODELS.
Which adult webcam sites pay the models the most? There is no hard and fast answer to that question really because it depends on so many factors. Clearly what dictates if a site is going to make you the most money as an adult webcam model is not just the percentage of the customer expenditure that you get but rather the volume of paying customers and the competition on that adult cam site. I encourage you to realize that this is critical to choosing the best adult webcam site to model for.
Secondarily you should understand that there are platforms that have in some cases 10’s of thousands of what are called white label sites that are basically the same as the company's main site. That is due to the fact that many platforms use affiliate marketing to enable others to start adult webcam businesses. At the end of the day what should matter most to you is having the most potential to make money and that usually means having the best overall user experience for the customers on the site on which you are modeling. Only then will customers use your services and keep coming back and spending money on you and your adult webcam show. (I have saved the best place for last, as far as our pick for the best place to model online).
Jasmin does have a method by which you can register to become an internet model right from their site.
You can Register here. (check back for update)
So let me just warn you about modeling on Chaturbate. Unless you are an exhibitionist and just like to masturbate for fun this site has the lowest incomes for models because it is 100% open to all meaning there is hardly any incentive for men to pay. Chaturbate model registration is here. However, I HIGHLY suggest if you want to make any sort of comparable income to the wages we suggest are average that you choose this site instead.
Flirt4Free does have more rigid standards that some as far as looks and ages. UPDATED: We now only suggest 1 site for cam model which is the largest in the world with more paying customer and that registration link is here.
Streamate is the best place for webcam models because they make the highest average incomes on this site. That is mostly due to the fact that more men use the site and keep coming back to use that site. That fact is mostly due to the fact that users on Streamate powered sites have a credit card on file and they pay as they go. Their trust level with the site is much, much higher than any other site online with the possible exception of flirt4free. Also keep in mind streamate has more than 10,000 duplicate sites under different brands where your webcam room will be visible meaning that you’ll be modeling for one of the largest audiences online looking for live private modeling!
That is why our recommendation is for models to register for modeling on streamate. In order to do so though you must go through a studio as they lessen their liability Streamate chooses to use studios to manage all the models versus having their own. The studio we suggest to cam models is once more HERE. (Also keep in mind that you can refer other friends if you are a new cam model or if you have an adult webcams review site or other traffic sources you can make 10% of their earnings by simply registering as an agent and sharing a link with your own agent code) You can become an agent here.
