Even though there are a lot of attractive ways of making money, one of the most popular ones when it comes to the world of adult entertainment is knowing how to be a cam girl. Videos are being replaced with sex chat sites that allow for a much more engaging experience both for the models, and the viewers, which is why according to many, they are the future.
With that in mind, you can’t just start working on a sex chat site and expect money to start flowing in instantly. There are a few things that you’ll need to do first, and if you want to make a living out of it, here are a few tips that will definitely help you increase your earnings.
Be Careful When Starting Out
One of the easiest mistakes you can make might just end up costing you more than you’d think. When you’re starting out, you want to choose the right platform. There is no shortage of options, that’s for sure, but not all sex chat sites are made equal.
The main deciding factor is the website’s fee and it can make a massive difference in your earnings. The fees basically dictate how much of the earnings you make via tokens and subscriptions you get to keep because some of it does go to the platform. You should be looking at sites that have fees as low as possible.
But while we’re talking about money, we should also mention the price of tokens. Tokens are the currency that fans use to give you tips and get you into private rooms, and depending on your viewers, some websites might have tokens that are more expensive than they’d like. This won’t be as effective in terms of income, because not everyone can afford to spend a lot of money.
The takeaway from this is to be careful which platform you’re starting out on. And don’t just look at things from your own perspective – consider what your potential viewers might think. Oh, and while platforms like OnlyFans might seem attractive, sex chat sites are where the money is at.
Don’t Go All Out Immediately
If your intention is to make a living out of sex chat sites, revealing everything immediately is a mistake. Instead, you should take things slow, and make sure your viewers are keeping up. Whether it’s taking your clothes off on camera, or just doing something a viewer has asked you to do, make sure they tip you well for it.
This does two things. For you, it increases your income. For the viewer, it lets them know that there is more – they just have to tip well. Which, in turn, increases your income. If, on the other hand, you show everything you have to show the first time someone tips, you won’t really be giving them a reason to tip further. Take things slowly.
And this is especially true when you have a viewer in a private room if that’s your cup of tea. If someone has paid to get you in a private room, they can obviously afford the tokens – why not take advantage of that? Make sure they spend as many of them as possible on your private show but make sure it’s worth their time.
One common mistake that a lot of beginner cam models seem to do is start spending their money instantly, and unreasonably. If you want to be smart about it, you should reinvest the money you get when you’re starting out, and make sure it goes towards you having a better, higher quality stream.
The first thing you want to invest in is probably gear. Yes, you can do this with a laptop and the built-in camera, but if you want viewers who spend a bit more, you have to give a bit more. Get a better camera, for example, and set up a few lights in the room you’re streaming in. This will have a significant impact on the viewers’ experience and will increase the chances of them coming back and getting more tokens.
Make Yourself Worth It!
This is probably the most important tip you can get when you start working as a webcam model – make sure whatever you’re offering, is worth it! Of course, if you’re doing this you are probably already comfortable in your own body. But you should make sure that you’re worth the time and money your viewers are investing in you.
This does mean that you might need to do a few things you’re uncomfortable with at first, but these usually get you significant tips and let me tell you, that does help a lot with getting out of your comfort zone. And the more you do that, the higher your income, provided you have viewers to support you.
At the end of the day, it’s all about being comfortable, taking things slow, and making sure you engage with your viewers. Do this, and you’ll notice that making a living out of sex chat sites isn’t all that difficult!
