Whether you want to make extra cash or want to take up a job that allows you to have fun while making big money, consider setting up a cam modeling business. Cam models earn good money. Many initially take up cam modeling as a part-time profession; however, once they start raking in the moolah, these models become full-time models. After you have made the decision of entering the cam modeling industry, you need to get your priorities straight. To help you get started, we, in this post, take a look at a few things that you need to do before streaming your first show.
Decide whether you want to keep your life as a cam model secret
First and foremost, you need to decide whether you want to break the news to your friends and family that you have decided to work as a cam model. Though society’s attitude regarding cam models has drastically changed during the past few years, many people still look down on cam models. If you’re from a conservative family, take steps to keep your life as a cam model secret.
Learn the ropes
If you do not know anything about the cam modeling industry, don’t get disheartened. Remember, every expert was once a beginner. Cam models who are ruling the industry today were amateurs at some point. If they can make it big in the cam modeling industry, why can’t you?
Take the time to familiarize yourself with the cam modeling industry. Read articles and watch videos that cover the different aspects of camming. To learn the tricks of the trade, consider enrolling on a cam modeling course.
Geo-block visitors from your city/state/country
If you don’t want your friends and family to find out about your profession, use geo-blocking options on your cam modeling site to block users from your city/state/country. When you geo-block a person, they will be able to visit the website; however, your profile won’t appear in their search results. Some sites offer multiple geo-blocking options that allow you to block people from different cities. This option is pretty useful for models who have lived in multiple cities.
Learn all there is to know about your cam modeling site
Before joining a cam modeling site, make an effort to learn everything there is to know about the website. Read the provider’s policy. Find out how tipping works and the website’s cut. Visit cam models’ profiles to get an idea of how much you can earn. Familiarize yourself with the dashboard.
If your cam site has a training section, remember to visit it. Here you will find videos, articles, and tutorials related to camming. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call up the provider’s office. Familiarizing yourself with the provider’s policy will help avoid confusion and clash of interest.
Create an amazing profile
Your profile is the face of your business. Take time to make it look amazing. Upload your best pics to your profile. Choose a naughty screen name. Fill out the create account form very carefully. If you want to keep your identity secret, do not provide personal information. To entice your fans, upload sexy HD videos. Use flirty one-liners in your description. Your description should reveal the naughty and kinky side of your personality, giving the visitors a reason to join your chat room.
Get creative with tags
Many cam modeling websites allow their new models to use the new model tag for a few hours. This is nothing short of a blessing for newcomers to the industry who desperately need some help to create awareness about their brand. If your site allows you to use the new model tag, make the most of the opportunity. Tagging yourself as a new model will help you get some much-needed attention and drive traffic to your live stream.
If your site lists the profile of new models on the home page, remember to turn on the feature that allows you to avail the service. Use relevant tags to tag everything, including sex toys, dresses, lingerie, and makeup accessories that you use in your shows. Using effective tags is one of the best ways to ensure that your profile appears in the search results of your target audience. The more tags you have, the better your chances of getting noticed.
That said, avoid overusing tags as it may make you seem like someone who is desperate for attention. The rule of thumb says that you should not use more than a couple of hashtags in a single post. To increase the quality and quantity of traffic to your shows, use well-researched tags. When choosing tags, look for popular words that netizens frequently use.
Create a schedule
Not having a schedule is a costly mistake that you cannot afford to commit. Remember your fans have personal and professional commitments. They have a schedule and can’t stay online 24 hours a day. Models who broadcast their shows at a time when most of their viewers are offline, run the risk of disappointing their fans, many of whom may eventually switch to another model.
To prevent this from happening, create a schedule, and stick to it. Announce your schedule on your social media profiles and cam modeling profile. If due to some reason, you can’t stick to your schedule on a day, inform your fans in advance. Informing your viewers about your schedule will help you look professional and make your fans feel that you respect their time.
Market your business
Like every other entrepreneur, you need to promote your cam modeling business to get new fans and make the existing ones keep coming back for more. Create your profile on all major social networking websites. Link these profiles to your cam profile. To have complete control over who gets to view your content and information, set your profile to private. Use relevant and popular hashtags to create online buzz. Following other models and commenting on their performance can help you get noticed by their fans.
When it comes to camming, patience is the name of the game. The strategies that you implement to carve a niche for yourself may not yield immediate results; however, your efforts will pay off in the long run.
