Want some extra cash? Get a webcam job now!
Have you already decided to get a webcam job or are you seriously considering it? No matter what's your answer, I think you already know that it's the perfect way to make some extra money, but you need to know that like any other job, if you don't work at it, you'll never rise above the other webcam models who are also doing it for the money.
What starts now as a way to make some extra cash may end in quitting your full time job and being your own boss. But for now, let's focus on how to become the star of your own bedroom?
Where to work and how to promote yourself
There are many webcam studios hiring webcam models, but you always have to search and find the best one for you. Keep in mind that no special equipment is required - you only need a computer with a microphone, internet, a webcam and your good looks. You will find out that agencies have different payment systems, tipping options - that's also an important aspect of choosing the right webcam agency. Don't forget to ask the studios how and when they pay!
About promoting yourself... First of all, you need to know that you have to be prepared for a sea of competition, because whether you like it or not - there are millions of webcam models out there who also want to make money by having a webcam job. You need to set yourself apart - decide on a style that fits your personality, choose a good name and than build a good reputation and take care of it.
Like in any other business, if the word spreads that you're an untrustworthy webcam model, viewers will avoid you. Remember that clients gossip about models as much as models talk about clients.
What to do, how to do it and what props to use
In order to promote yourself, you will need to have the right tools. You have to make sure you a have a good quality webcam (don't buy a cheap one - invest about 100-200 pounds!), a good laptop with microphone, high-speed internet connection and good lighting. After having regulars, you can also think of having a website. Websites are great to promote a good, trustworthy erotic worker.
Having a webcam job sometimes involves using different props and sex toys. Never ever buy cheap toys, because they might contain toxic chemicals! Always use props made of body-safe materials.
After having regulars, you might consider selling videos or shorter clips of yourself or with other cam models for additional money, sell your sex toys or clothes or even sell signed photos on your website. These are just some ideas, but the list goes on - it all depends on what are you willing to do and what represents you.
Very important - always follow you finances, because you need to know how much you're making so that you can decide whether it's worth investing your time and energy in it on long term or not.
Don't forget to get social
And by social I mean being on Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat. You need to be actively engaged, constantly posting updates, but be prepared - it takes a long time and hard work to have followers, social media success doesn't happen overnight. Don't underestimate the power of a good hashtag! Use the right hashtags to get attention.
