Work for girls as a webcam model at home — without a studio and intermediaries.

In this article, we will analyze what webcam modeling is. How much do models earn and what it takes to get started. This topic is poorly covered on the Internet. The existing articles are full of reservations and inaccuracies, their main purpose is to persuade girls to cooperate with intermediaries. Working through an intermediary, 30% -50% of the earned is lost.

In this article, we will consider only direct cooperation with sites without intermediaries.

What does webcam model mean?

To put it simply: webcam models make money by communicating with people via video link. There are sites where you can register as a webcam model and start broadcasting your shows. Viewers come to the show and may either want to go to a paid private chat or tip for some action on your part.

Below in the article there will be reviews of the main webcam sites.

I want to say right away that there are different options for communication — completely frank, involving exposure, and less frank options, which provide only communication (maximum flirtation, without nudity).

Anyone can become a model. The main thing is to be over 18 years old, no matter what gender, appearance or physique you are. You can work in a pair of any combination, even a guy and a girl, even two girls, and so on.

Payment occurs for every minute you spend in a private conversation with a specific person. Different sites have different mechanics. On some, you can be in private chats with several people at the same time, on other sites, people can throw off large sums of money together, for which you are ready to do certain actions.

The site is interested in your big earnings, since they take a percentage from them, so the system is created so that viewers spend as much as possible.

If you start working wisely, you can quickly go to earnings of 1–2 thousand dollars a month.

How much you can earn depends on several factors:

  1. How many hours a day do you devote to work.
  2. Optimally 2–3 hours a day. The quality of your video. What is your camera and how is the light set. And most importantly, how you behave online.
  3. How good are you at flirting, seducing, and interesting to communicate with the audience.

The main webcam sites — BongaCams, Chaturbate and LiveJasmin have competitions between models. Every month, the most active models receive additional cash from $ 100 to $ 1000 + as a prize.

It’s difficult to predict exactly how much you will be able to earn, but there are models who manage to earn $ 10- $ 20 thousand per month. Of course, these models have been working a lot for a long time, they have a constant audience, frank shows and they use social networks to promote their accounts. In order to reach such indicators, it takes a lot of effort and time, but to start getting $ 500- $ 1000 every month you only need desire, courage and a little imagination.

How to become webcam models

In order to become a webcam model you will need:

  1. Age from 18 years.
  2. A computer or phone from which you can go online.
  3. Webcam. You can start with the laptop’s built-in camera, but video quality has a big impact on your success. I advise you to buy a good webcam (Logitech webcam hd pro c920 or better Logitech BRIO 4K UltraHD) and within 14 days while you can return it for free, spend as much time as possible working as a webcam model. If you start to succeed, you will have time to beat off the cost of the camera for these 14 days, and if you understand that this work is not suitable for you, you can return the camera to the store.

If the conditions above are met, you can start working. To start working as a webcam model, you need to register on the main webcam site.

Yes, each of the sites we looked at provides the ability to block users from a specific country. Also, some sites provide free legal assistance. If it suddenly happens that the user will record your show and post it on the Internet, lawyers will make a request as quickly as possible and free of charge and the video will be deleted.

In some post-Soviet countries, webcam modeling is in the gray area of ​​the law. But if you do not work in a studio, but at home, then no one will look for you. Although you need to provide your passport information when registering (to confirm that you are over 18 years old), your name is not displayed anywhere and you work under a pseudonym.

Depends on your imagination and courage. The main goal is for the viewer to have fun, you can correspond or communicate by voice, flirt and seduce. In a private chat, do not rush to do everything that is asked of you at once, but at the same time be attentive and polite to the viewer. Your goal is to stretch the communication as long as possible, but at the same time so that the viewer does not feel that you are using it, it is important to find a balance.

Most often, you can take notes on sites, it will be cool if you get into the habit of taking notes about regular viewers. So the next time a regular viewer comes to you, you will already have something to continue communication with. Most of the earnings of professional webcam models usually come from a small number of regular viewers.

How to become a webcam model at home from your phone?

In order to work from the phone, the BongaCams website is suitable. First, you will need to register and activate your account, and then you can download the mobile application and go online from your phone.

This job might be perfect for many people. Working online, you are not tied to a place, you earn in dollars and how much you can earn depends only on you.

Often on the Internet, you can get on an ad about work in a webcam studio. In some cases, if you are unable to work from home, this may make sense. But given how much money the studio will take and provided that you work well, most likely very quickly the percentage of the studio could cover you renting a separate apartment and creating conditions for working at home. There can also be problems with studios when you decide to leave them, as they will know your passport details and may even blackmail in some cases.

I advise you to register directly on the sites and not lose extra money. What a studio can help with is a good camera and interior, learning how to communicate with the audience and so on, which is certainly good but not worth losing so much money. You can learn it yourself and you will feel more secure.
