It definitely isn’t easy, but being a webcam model also isn’t the hardest or most demanding job I can think of. So I guess it’s understandable that a lot of people have some serious trouble believing not just that it can pay well, but that it even pays decently.
I mean, you’re sitting in front of your computer with the camera on and your clothes off, right? How much can you possibly expect to make? Again, not anywhere near that simple, but are cam girls really making bigtime bank doing this webcam modeling thing?
It doesn’t have to be a mystery, I’ll tell you that much for sure. There are hard numbers on this, and the earnings of top cam girls have been reported on by mainstream news outlets, so we’ve got reliable information here. Let’s take a look at the kind of money we’re really talking about when it comes to camming, and what you have to do to get your slice of that sweet, sweet pie.
Facts About Webcam Model Money
You may not think that camming would have all that much to do with real estate, but they’ve got one important principle in common: Location, location, location. So let me begin by saying that if you really want to make the big bucks in this business, you can’t just sign up with any old site. Chaturbate and MyFreeCams (MFC) are where it’s at.
Now, I’m not saying that every other cam site is a waste of time, or even that you can’t do very well if you cam there. You definitely can. But there’s just no denying that Chaturbate and MFC are where the top cam girls know to go, and there’s a reason for that.
The “free to watch” business model dominates camming in this day and age, and those two sites are the undisputed kings (or queens, if you prefer) of free-style. They’re huge, wildly successful sites; they’ve done the best anyone has done with the most effective strategy anyone has found for cashing in on the camera. Do yourself a favor. Use Chaturbate, or MFC.
And what kind of revenues could you be looking at if you do? Well, like I said, this has actually been pretty well-covered by the media. The New York Times, for instance, has talked many times about webcam models who bag a solid $400 or more every single day. Not bad, I’d say, especially when you don’t even have to leave home. But it gets way, way better.
There’s an article on CNBC.com that reports information from a webcam industry insider (you know how anonymous sources are, but I totally believe this material) on the incomes being pulled down by top cam girls. On MFC, the elite models are looking at $75,000 to as much as $100,000 OR MORE. Not too shabby as an annual salary for working the cam, is it?
Well, then ask yourself how you feel about it as MONTHLY pay, because that’s what we’re talking. A hundred grand, every single month, for cam girls who really know what they’re doing. They’re doing about the same on Chaturbate, as well, too. Like I said, those sites are where it’s at.
So, you realize what this means. Not only can cam girls do alright, not only can they be genuinely comfortable from working the cam, but those at the top can easily become millionaires. Just keep a cap on your expenses and get some idea where to even PUT money like that, and in 2 or 3 short years, you’ll literally break a million bucks after taxes.
Webcam models can make well into the six-figures annually. Incomes for the successful camgirls on MFC and Chaturbate are usually in that ball park.
It sounds fantastic, but honey, this ain’t no fantasy. In fact, back in 2015, we found out for sure that it’s all true. See, that was the year that MFC had a really embarrassing, really extreme data error that ended up exposing specific information on tokens earned by some of the webcam models working on the site. It was eye-opening, to say the least.
It turns out that the top webcam girls on MFC, as in those ranked from 1 – 100 in terms of sheer earnings, were ALL pulling down five figures every month. The best of the best, who had been there for years, were shown to have earned millions – yes millions – of dollars in tokens alone over their time on the site.
Chaturbate is no different. I know of at least one cam girl there who has an absolutely huge audience. She reliably gets at least 12,000 viewers on a good night, and totally crazy tips I wouldn’t even begin trying to count. One of her whales is even in the habit of buying her cars – yes, CARS.
And these days, cam girls are expanding beyond cam sites to platforms like OnlyFans, where many are pulling down ridiculous incomes. I’m hearing about girls doing over $100,000 PER MONTH on OnlyFans, okay? This is serious money we’re talking about.
But keep in mind, OnlyFans doesn’t send you any traffic or fans, like cam sites do. That’s why you need to work OnlyFans in conjunction with a solid cam site like Chaturbate. I explain how to do this in my how to promote OnlyFans guide here.
How To Get Rich as A Cam Girl
At this point, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably wondering just what it takes to reach those levels of cam girl bliss. Well, I can promise you there’s nothing special about these models, except that they know the right strategies and they implement them like it’s going out of style.
Obviously, one thing that all of the top cam girls have in common is camming. As in, a lot. They’re online very frequently, usually every day or close to it, and they put in plenty of hours. Doing that gives you plenty of exposure to the audience, and before too long, they start to get pretty attached to you. They come to the site just to see you, and when they do, they tip big.
But consistency is key. You can’t just show up to cam whenever you feel like it. By all means, set your own hours, but keep them the same from day to day and from week to week. That’s how you get regulars; someone likes you today, so he comes back tomorrow and likes you some more. All you need to do is actually be there tomorrow.
Some of these guys will be your very best tippers, and they’re carrying a lot of weight for you. You need to reward them appropriately by building friendships with them separate from your work as a webcam model.
That means talking to them over Skype and other platforms, texting them, and even talking over the phone. This kind of personal attention is huge with cam site members. They’ll absolutely love you for it, and they’re be your regulars for the long haul.

Finally, it’s important to network with other webcam models, and do “collabs” with them. That just means collaborative performances, which is simply going on webcam together for a joint show. Collabs are one of the key reasons that schmoozing with the other talent is such a good idea, because those shows can make BANK.
Even more importantly, do a collab with a well-known cam girl who has a big following, and her fans will be there to watch. Next thing you know, some of them are YOUR fans too. Of course this works in reverse, which is why it shouldn’t be too hard setting these things up. Go for it!
