How To Become a Cam Girl
I’m not even gonna lie, being a cam girl is probably the best kept secret in the sugar baby world. You can literally make thousands and thousands per month just sitting on your bed in front of your webcam…IF you know what you’re doing.
But whether you’re a sugar baby or not, camgirling can definitely be a great option if you need to make money fast. There are a lot of webcam modeling guides out there teaching newbies how to become a cam girl, but most of them are too confusing to follow. I’m gonna cut through all that bull and just tell you EXACTLY what you need to do to make real money fast as a webcam model.
Are you ready??
Truth delivered in this post:
1 – How to create your cam girl account at Chaturbate.
2 – What kind of equipment you’ll need.
3 – How to get viewers in your room.
4 – How to get TIPPED BIG.
5 – How to be a $20k PER MONTH cam girl.
Okay, a lot of new cam girls tend to get sort of paralyzed when they’re considering what cam site to begin camming at, but I’m going to make it real easy for you…just use Chaturbate, there’s no better option. You wanna know why? Chaturbate has MASSIVE traffic.
It’s grown so large, that it basically has become the king of cam sites and is now considered to be the best place for cam models to make real money. There are tons of other cam sites out there, but most of them don’t have enough traffic to make it worth your while.
If you sign up anywhere else, you’re likely going to sit there for hours with nobody in your room, and believe me, that disappointing experience could sour you on camming in general.
Trust me, you need to cam at Chaturbate. Signup here now and get the process underway (it can take a few days to get approved to broadcast). After you’ve done that, you need to get your equipment in order.
Cam Girl Equipment Issues
One of the biggest concerns that new cam girls have is the technical part of camming. Computers, webcams, internet connection speeds. Most of us girls don’t have time to decipher any of that crap. Like, what the heck is a Logitech C920?? Fuck if I know. No, just kidding, I actually know what it is. And you will too, it’s not a biggie, just listen carefully.
If you don’t have a computer and webcam, don’t worry, you can still stream on Chaturbate using your smartphone!
The first piece of equipment you should have to become a cam girl is a laptop computer (or a desktop). Now, it doesn’t have to be a great one. You don’t need a new Alienware thing, or anything like that. You just want a functional computer.
A lot of people think their computer is unsuitable for camgirling because it’s too slow or sluggish, but that’s usually because it’s infested with viruses and malware. Do yourself a favor and clear all that crap out before you start at Chaturbate. Click here for a good free virus cleaner that will take care of the situation.
The next thing you’ll want for camming is a webcam, obviously. Now, a lot of people, and even some established cam girls, will tell you that you’ll need an expensive 4k webcam — but that’s actually not true at all.
A quality webcam is great to have, but it’s NOT actually essential for a beginner.
At least, it’s not true for beginners. When you’re first starting out in webcam modeling, getting a 4k webcam is totally overkill. Now, it helps to have a decent webcam that can give you a crisp and clear image, but if you only have the built-in webcam in your laptop, that will be fine to start out with. (You can also just use your smartphone.)
Yeah, the quality is not gonna be great, but it doesn’t have to be. Your behavior on cam will matter FAR more, in terms of how much money you can make (more on this down below). Being alluring and intriguing is way more important.
Now, your internet connection is one of the most important technical requirements you’ll need to be a cam girl, and the faster the speed, the better. Generally, cable internet and fiber optic internet are the best connections you can have for camgirling, because both the “upstream” and the “downstream” speeds are excellent. So, if you have either of those, you’re pretty as a peach.
If you have a DSL connection, you’re probably fine too, but you might experience some quality problems with your stream every now and then. It shouldn’t get in the way of making good money, though.
As I said, webcam modeling is mostly about being interesting and sexy, not about having the best stream quality. Having said that, when you make some money on cam and can afford it, you should probably invest in a decent webcam like the Logitech C920.
How To Get Cam Site Viewers
Okay, once you’ve got your equipment and technical issues nailed down, you need to learn how to attract viewers into your chat room. Every new cam girl suffers from what I call “newbie radioactivity,” which means that it’s difficult AF to get viewers to pay attention to you.
Well, I mean, it’s difficult when you don’t know how to go about it correctly — but that’s what we’re gonna take care of in this post!
When you’re new on Chaturbate, or any other cam site, nobody knows you. You have no following, no rep, no brand, no history. You’re a total unknown, so viewers are not sure whether you’re worth their time.
In order to fix this, you have to do a few main things. If you do these things correctly and consistently, you will almost certainly be able to attract viewers like a magnet!
Give ‘Em Something To Feast Their Eyes On – When viewers pop in to your room to see what’s going on, you need to be showing off your best. If a cam site member enters your room out of curiosity and sees you just sitting there looking bored, and there’s nothing going on, he’s gonna bounce straight outta your room like a ping-pong ball.
If every member who pops in does the same thing, then you’ll never build up a decent room count (the total number of viewers in your room at one time) and it will be difficult to make money.
Don’t be that girl who just sits there looking bored while all her potential tippers fly away at warp speed! Instead, use the tried and true tactics that I and other successful cam girls have used to create large room counts.
First, show some skin. I’m not saying you should be totally naked, but look, guys on cam sites want to see naked bodies, so at least show some cleavage, or some legs, or put your phat booty in a thong on display. If you’ve got great boobs, make sure the webcam is right on them. If it’s your ass that’s first class, then put it front and center.
Be provocative, sexy, and interesting when you’re on cam. Look like you’re there for an adventure, and SMILE like crazy!
Next, you need to smile as much as possible because smiling sends the signal that you’re into this and actually want to be there. When a viewer sees you smiling, he’s MUCH less likely to bounce, and you will have a chance to win him over and get him tipping. Nothing is a bigger turn-off to a cam site viewer than a frowning or bored cam girl!
Engage Your Room With Saucy Convo – One of the best ways to build up viewers and room count is to talk about stuff…interesting stuff. Did you have a wild summer vacation? Well, you need to talk to your viewers about it.
Did your boyfriend do something to you “down there” the other night that made you flip over?? Well, talk about it, girl!! Viewers love to hear about these kinds of things, and it makes them stick around. The longer they stick around, the easier it is to get them to tip!
Go on Cam at The Same Time of Day – Being a smart cam girl involves structuring your camming schedule in ways that maximize your ability to attract and keep the loyalty of tipping members. One of the best ways to do that is to make sure that you go on cam and broadcast at the same time of day, every day.
So, for example, you should decide whether you want to cam at night, or in the morning, or in the afternoon, or whenever. Then, you need to STICK to that time of day, every day you cam.
The reason for this is that cam site members typically like to watch cams at certain times of the day. Humans are ritualistic creatures, so one guy might like to watch cam girls in the evening after dinner, while the next guy might like to watch in the morning before work, while another guy might like to watch in the middle of the night when he should be sleeping.
If you’re not camming at the same time of day consistently, then these guys won’t be able to find you again, and that’s a HUGE problem.
Make sure you’re on cam when your fans are! Make it super easy for them to find you, so you can warm them up for tipping through lots of exposure and interaction.
It’s a huge problem because, as any good cam girl knows well, it’s those “return visitors” that eventually become your biggest tippers. So, when you go on cam at the same time of day, day after day, the same members will pop into your room and hangout.
After a while, they’ll become so fond of you that they will begin tipping and paying for shows. So yeah, you definitely need a steady consistent camgirling schedule. This is one of the most effective tricks in the business.
How To Get Tipped BIG
If you’ve ever spent any significant amount of time on a cam site like Chaturbate, you’ve most likely seen cam models get tipped ridic huge amounts by devoted members. These guys are called “regulars,” and they’re called that because they regularly show up, tip, talk, and make things go smoothly in your chat room. If you want big tips, you need them, so listen up and learn the best tactics to use for creating them.
Use Private Messaging – When you’ve got viewers in your room who are interested to get to know you better, chatting in public can be less than ideal. Most of these members don’t feel comfortable talking about their kinks in public chat, for fear of getting laughed at or made fun of, so chatting through PM’s (private messages) makes a lot of sense. This will allow you to warm them up and bond with them in a personal way, which often leads to big tips down the road. It won’t happen immediately, but when it does happen, it could means BIG, BIG tips.
Private messages allow you to bond with a member in an intimate and personal way that’s not possible in public chat. That makes big tipping MUCH more likely.
There’s not enough time to talk to each and every member via PM’s, so you would be wise to use this tactic only on members who have tokens, or who have bought them recently (so you can be sure, at least, that they spend money on the site and you’re not wasting your time). On Chaturbate, you can know who these members are by simply looking at the color of their screen name. If it’s blue or purple, that means they buy tokens. If it’s black or grey, that means they don’t.
Create a Twitter (X.com) Account – One of the best ways to “warm up” fans for tipping and show buying is to use the awesome power of the “WARM-UP.” Being a cam girl, these days, means having a warm-up strategy, and it’s because you can make crazy amounts of money using it. Twitter (X.com) allows you to post explicit “teaser” content, in addition to normal clickbait content, and followers love it. Did your cat just do something super cute? You should post about it. Does that new bikini you just bought fit perfectly on you? Then, damn, snap some pics and post!! Did your mom just call and drive you nuts? Post about it and vent, sweet thing! Your fans will feel like they’re following your life as it happens, and that is phenomenally effective for the “warm up” process.
Twitter is a “warm up” chamber. You can create devoted fans by just being you and sharing your life with your fans.
The key with this tactic is to snap pics and videos as often as you can throughout the day. They don’t need to be heavily produced, or “pro” in any way, just post casually like you’re letting people in on how your day is going. That’s it, it’s super simple…and fuuuuun, believe me!
If you’re consistent with this, you’ll find that these fans who view your warm up content will become increasingly fond of you, and many of them will start tipping big when you’re broadcasting. Just make sure to advertise your free Twitter account in your chat room, so your fans can easily follow. And don’t worry about promoting your adult stuff on Twitter, they allow that too!
How To Become a $20K per Month Cam Girl
Okay, so this is what most girls who enter the webcam modeling business really want to know. How do you become a top-earning cam girl? Everybody’s heard of those certain cam models that have gotten tipped 20,000, 30,000, or even 100,000 tokens in one shot. We ALL want to be that girl! Well, the way you do it is to hunt for “WHALES!!”
A “whale,” in the cam girl world, is basically a big spending member. They’re also called Uber Fans, or Superfans. These are guys who like to buy literally thousands of dollars per month in tokens and shower them on their favorite webcam models.
If you want to become a top camgirl, you really need some whales sending you some love. There’s a specific way to attract these guys, and it’s all about hanging out where they hang out.
So, whales like top cam models. They like them because they’re the best of the best, and top models tend to have huge audiences in their chat rooms, which allows for a whale’s massive tips to be seen by lots of people.
Yeah, whales basically like to show off, and that’s totally cool — especially when you’re the cam girl they’re tipping. There’s no better place to show off than in the room of a super popular webcam model — so that’s where we go to find these dudes.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you should “poach” tippers from other models. Not at all — in fact, that would be an unacceptable violation of cam girl etiquette. But being a successful cam model requires a bit of socialization, which means you need to get out there and mingle.
Hanging out with other models and with members is a great way to get noticed by the community, and if you’re going to do it, then you’d be smart to do it where the whales are.
Mingling is part of being a top cam girl. You’ve got to schmooze with other models and with cam site members.
What I do is I just pop into the rooms of popular cam girls, from time to time, and start participating in the chat. I joke around, talk a lot, and just mingle, you know? I NEVER target any particular members, I just have fun chatting with everybody and, often times, I get noticed by some of the big spenders.
It’s super easy, fun, and you’d be surprised how effective it can be. A lot of times the model herself gets charmed, and she offers to do a collab with you (collaboration, which means basically camming together or shooting videos).
Make sure that your profile page is fully loaded with pics of you, as well as any bio information you wish to share. It allows people who notice you in chat to check you out, and makes it likely they’ll follow you.
Virtually all of the over-$20k per month webcam models have devoted big spenders tipping them massively, and you’ll get there too, if you play the game right.
Final Tip For Being a Successful Cam Girl
Probably the most important thing you need to know when starting as a cam girl is that you need to remove the word “quit” from your vocabulary. Most new webcam models have a tough time starting out because they have no fans yet, and that can be extremely discouraging for a lot of girls.
You go on cam, you don’t get tipped right away, and you feel like you’re wasting your time. We all went through this phase when learning how to become a cam girl, and it sucks.
BUT…if you keep with it. If you push through that difficult newbie phase and apply the tactics I’ve taught you here, things will start looking up sooner than you think. It happened for me, and for tons of other cam girls I know. You need to stay focused and power through! VERY good things await you on the other side, trust me!!
