What is webcam modeling jobs?
When you see the word “webcam modeling”, you probably wander what it is. How can you make money with webcam?Webcam modeling jobs are jobs that you can work from anywhere as long as you have internet and webcam. It is an entertaining work talking to people through webcam. Usually sexual conducts are involved. Non-nude webcam modeling jobs are available as well but that requires high talking skills to entertain viewers as well as good looking. Non-nude webcam modeling jobs are more like being an sexy idol or celebrity.
The webcam modeling jobs are usually not employer-employee relationship. It is independent contractor type of jobs. Another word, the money you make is yours. But if you do not make any, you do not get any. You usually need to register at cam sites unless you already have regular customers in hand. Live webcam sites are like stores that sell live video. Webcam models are producers that make live shows.
How do you make money?
There are several ways to make money from webcam model jobs. But where money is coming from is all same, viewers. So the viewers are your customers. Your job is to entertain viewers so they pay you and come back.
The way you make money depends on which site you work as the cam sites have their own strategy on how they sell themselves to market. But in broad definition, there are 2 ways to make money.
One system that cam sites utilize as the way to make money is tipping. This way is usually utilized at so-called “free cam site” such as Myfreecam and Chaturbate. The models at such free sites need to perform for free. If viewers are satisfied, they tip you. This system is very appealing to viewers as they can watch the shows for free. Thus the traffic that such free sites have are much higher compared with other type of sites explained latter.
The difficulty on free sites is top models get most of viewers at the site. Since number of viewers in your room impacts where your thumbnail is displayed, often the case that your room is displayed at the end of the page which viewers do not check. However, most of the sites have promotion period which attracts viewers. If you can not build regular customers during this period, you end up getting no money at the end of your cam model career. You can not usually re-register just because you did not do what you need to do. So, you have to be wise learning what you need to do to during this period.
There are some strategies to make money at free cam sites.
- count down strategy
The count down strategy is to set tipping targets. At each target, a model will do what she promises. For example, at 100 tips, the model takes shirt off, at 200 tips bra off, 300 tips be naked. This strategy will mitigate risks that models get nothing even she shows everything.
This strategy works really well if you have a facilitator at your room since asking tips gives impression that you are greedy. That impression turns some viewers off. Thus, letting a facilitator to do their job avoids such unfavorable impression.
- Raffle strategy
Do you like to get a present? of course you do. Everyone likes to get a present. Ruffle strategy utilize such physiology. When tipper tips you, give out raffle tickets. The present can be anything including a picture, a video or underwear that you wear in the show. With little present, you would easily be able to facilitate viewers to tip you.
- Tip controlled vibrator strategy
There are vibrators that reacts to tipping. Lovense and Ohmibod are the two famous brands for tip controlled vibrator. More details about vibrators are here. With this vibrator, the tipper can have control on a vibrator you use which provide interaction feeling. This interaction adds more value to tipping. Some people have sexual sadism containing desire to control woman. This strategy really work well for people with such desire.
Pay per minutes
Pay per minutes sites are rather easier to make money than free sites since all the viewers who enter your room need to pay. It is easy to entertain viewers as well because what the viewers who enter your room are looking for is straight. You do not need to be good at chatting with viewers to make money. Just flirt little bit and start your show.
All of Japanese sites are pay per minutes base. It is simply because Japanese do not have culture to tip.
Pay per minutes without cam sites
If you do not want to give out any cut to cam site, you can do so if you have means to find customers. Some models utilize non-adult social networking platform such as snapchat and live.me to find customers. Once viewers like you, you can ask them to pay to your paypal account or any payment processing sites. Skype is the most common way of delivering your show in this method.
One thing to note is that you have to receive money in front otherwise you are risking yourself that you do not get any money.
Other way to make money with your webcam: Selling videos and pictures
Selling videos and pictures are not as lucrative as live broadcasting. But it is good way to make money offline. Once you make videos and pictures, you have pretty much nothing to do. However, you can not sell video and pictures easily if you do not have your customers because you are potentially competing against free porn sites. From end users view, there is no reason to pay to watch your videos since there are many free videos. Thus, selling videos and pictures only works if you have customers who support you.
