I just wanted to create a page that explains, step by step, exactly how to be a cam girl. This is for beginners in the camming business who don’t know where or how to start the process of entering the webcam modeling field. I remember how confusing it was when I first got interested in webcams, so my goal here is to help girls who just need to know exactly what to do to get started. I hope this helps!!
Your Camming Equipment
The first thing you should do once you decide to become a camgirl is make sure your equipment is adequate, meaning your computer and webcam. Laptop computers purchased in recent years are supposed to be suitable for camming, but the more powerful the CPU and RAM, the better. As for webcam devices, Logitech generally makes the best. The reason they’re great for webcam girl purposes is because HD models have excellent video AND audio quality, so your viewers will be able to see and hear you well. This is important because the better you look and sound, the more likely it is that people in your chat room are turned on by you. This makes sense, but sadly, many novice camera models don’t realize it.
If you don’t have the money to get a good webcam, don’t worry. Even your crappy built-in laptop camera can be enough to help you out until you can save up to buy a decent HD model. I would recommend the Logitech C920, which is an all-in-one webcam used by many camgirls. As for the internet connection, you’re probably fine if you have cable internet, but if you have DSL you’ll need to test and experiment a bit to see if your speeds are fast enough for camming.
Camera Site Registration
So when you have your gear checked, you have to decide which cam site you want to start your camgirl career on. I would highly recommend starting a new model on Chaturbate as it is the site with the most traffic, right now. It’s hard to make a lot of money fast there, but if you keep at it for at least a few weeks, you’ll likely amass enough followers to start attracting serious tokens. Also, don’t think you need to join a studio, because you really don’t. Unless you can’t cam from home, for whatever reason, you don’t need a studio.
Once you register on Chaturbate, you will now be ready to become a real cam girl and start broadcasting. However, one thing you need to understand is that you really need to take the time to learn how to manage your chat rooms. Chaturbate has “apps and bots” that models can use to help make things more interesting for their audience by tipping the game and setting up tipping goals. You don’t need to know how to use apps and bots to do well, but having some knowledge of how they work will help. Open the camera and experiment with some of them, so you can get a feel for how they can help you run your room. Keno Token is a great app to start with,
Choosing a Camera Model Name
Before you register for your account on Chaturbate, you should carefully think about what your model name will be. It’s important that you try to choose a name that’s cool and easy to remember, but don’t be used by other people so fans don’t get confused. The way I find my name is, I just look through magazines until I find a cool word I like, then I pair it with a commonly used first name. Like, you might use a name like Jenni and pair it with a word like “broadstreet” for “Jenni Broadstreet.” You can also get more profane and dirty if you want, it’s completely up to you. Try to make it fit the image you want to create for your model persona. Once you have decided on the name you like,
It’s usually a good idea to make some videos to sell on your Chaturbate profile, as they are popular and an easy way to get tokens flowing while you’re broadcasting. You can upload videos through your model account and set a price for each. Then, when someone buys it, they will get the download link automatically. This is a great feature and makes Chaturbate stand out, as few other cam sites have it.
Attract Viewers & Get Tips
Once you’re ready to start broadcasting as a real camera model, you’ll need to know how to make your chat room a fun place to attract visitors. Being talkative and friendly always helps a lot. Smile, laugh and be yourself! It really pops up when you’re relaxed and having fun, so it’s like a drink or two before you hit the camera for the first time. This helps to loosen you up and makes it easier for you to talk, which is the first step to building the kind of friendship with your camera viewers that will allow you to make a lot of money later on.
This brings me to the tipping problem. How do you make it happen, and it happens often? Well, the actual tip is a bit tricky. You’d think that just being a pretty girl willing to blink and be naked on camera would cause people to start stumbling easily. No, it’s not that simple. I thought so myself too, when I first became a cam girl, but then I found out that there is more to it than that. Basically, viewers love to tip the girls they know and like. They won’t just tip a stranger, even if he or she is hot and willing to do anything. Well, that’s not entirely true… sometimes a camgirl is sexy, and attractive, and witty, and perfect in every way — she’ll get a tip from the start. But most of us have to actually work to earn tips!! LOL
The best way to bring tips to life is to make your audience feel that they are your friends. Viewers will tip you if they think you’re their friend — that’s when the serious signs start pouring in. Talking and joking with them will start the process, but there are also things you can do to engage them and keep their attention that will dramatically increase your ability to get them to tip and buy the show from you. I really could write a book on this, but there’s no space in this article, so keep reading my blog for more tips and info on how to camming the right way and maximizing your earning potential. With a little practice, you’ll be successful in no time!
Ok, hope you like my little webcam camera, and I wish you all the best in your career as a cam girl!!
