So, we wrote this post to give you a complete guide how to start your life as a cam girl. We are not webcam models, we are just fans of this industry who are trying to give you some advices from our point of view. In the last five years, we recruited many models through our site and we want to share their experiences with you. So, let’s start.
Am I ready to be a cam girl?
What is your reason to become a cam girl? Do you want to make some extra money to pay your studies, or you are single mother who wants additional earnings? Do you want to leave your job because it is boring and it isn’t paid well? Or are you just looking for some fun by meeting new people?
Whatever the reason is there are some rules for webcam models and you need to know them.
- You have obligation to pay taxes on your earnings. You need to check what rules are for that in your country/state. Cam sites have nothing to do with it.
- Some of cam sites don’t allow you to work on other one.
You are probably thinking about your privacy and your content. As we said cam agency takes care about webcam models, but if you want to be sure you can check this or this link to learn more about your protection.
Are you scared to show your face on cam, because it is embarrassing for you or you think someone can recognize and judge you? There are sites that allow their models to hide their faces. You can try on this way when you begin your cam girl carrier. After you assimilate and relax yourself, you will make all these steps on the easiest way.
Cam sites allow you to block some countries and states if you don’t want visitors from that area. Of course, people use some software to hide their IP’s, but this is a great feature that cam sites gives you.
This is big industry and all big players give opportunity to all models to protect themselves. So don’t worry about that.
Only thing you need to do is to make decision do you really want to become a cam girl.
Equipment for webcam models
In this time we all have some pretty good computers and internet. If your device isn’t older more than few years it will be enough for you to start webcam job. Of course, if you want to give better experience to users and visitors you can buy HD web cams with different features such as remote control. This will allow you to have complete control to interact with people in your chat room.
We think that you first need to invest in this kind of equipment. If you have great HD cam users will stay longer in your room and this is chance for you to make more money as a cam girl.

Best cam sites to work for
This is the main point. How to choose best cam sites to work for and which cam sites pay the most? All cam sites give their models to keep between 35-50% of earnings. When you become successful cam girl you can work on any site, because you will have your clients and they will follow you, it doesn’t matter which cam site you work on.
But for beginners our strongly recommendation is Chaturbate. It is token based site and models keep 50% of all earnings. This is public chat room and you can do your show without going to private chat with some of users. Site has millions of visitors per day and this is the best recommendation for start. Even if you are newbie there are many people on site and you can expect decent number of them in your room.
Unlike this site, other doesn’t allow you to have public show. If you want to make money you need to attract user(s) in private chat, set your price per minute and start the show. Most of those sites give you around 35% of your earnings.
So, that is the reason why we think chaturbate is the best cam site for cam girls.
Whatever you decide, here are three steps you should keep in mind while you search for cam sites:
- Number of visitors
- Percent of earnings
There are also some studios and if you join through them, they will give you some tips and advices. Of course they will keep piece of cake.
Please check our cam sites reviews and choose the best for yourself.
How much does a cam girl make
It depends. Cam girl with years of experience makes really decent amount of money. They have their own clients, fun clubs, and many followers on social networks etc. But please don’t be afraid of this. They were also beginners and they had their trip to become successful cam girls.
So, first you need to be patient. It will be hard in the beginning but after some time you will gain your costumers and start making money. Of course, there are models that make good money even if they are beginners. It is all up to you. How can you treat your visitors, what are you ready to offer to them are just some of things that will bring you money.
For example, look at this picture from chaturbate:
There are over 8000 users in this model’s room. Just imagine if half of them tip one token ($0.10), it will be 4000 tokens. Model keeps 50% what means 2000 tokens ($200), which is great for start.
We already written about cam girl who made $6000 in 14 days. She works on site with much less visitors but she gained her customers in less than 4 months.
Tips for cam girls to attract visitors
First of all. Before you sign up to cam sites be sure to choose adequate username. It needs to be recognizable and you don’t want to change it after two months. So think about this, take some sexy and interesting username and open your account.
First what user sees on your profile is picture. Be patient with this. For example, make some clear selfie picture from your phone. Picture doesn’t need to be blurred and dark. You can use some online picture editors to make it better, add some filters etc.
When you are in chat room, be yourself. Treat visitors as your friend, talk with them and smile. This will attract them. If you are not in a good mood, then it is better for you to skip camming that day.
Use some sex toys, put some tags and explanation on your profile. Look at the examples below.
