Webcam Modeling 101

Webcam modeling, or live video chat hosting is a relatively new position within the adult industry. Even in today's harsh, uncertain economy, the demand for webcam entertainment is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, the opposite is true!


Webcam modeling is one of the few positions a model can get into with zero experience and start making money within 24 hours. With the seemingly unlimited number of fetishes sought, virtually anyone can earn a great living as a webcam model.


Whether you're a stay at home mom seeking full-time work, a student looking for an easy part-time way to pay for school, an aspiring adult film star, or you're just tired of working your tail off for peanuts, this may be the job for you!


What is webcam modeling?


Webcam modeling is a very unique position within the adult entertainment industry to say the least. Unlike any other adult position, webcam models can work from the comfort and privacy of their own home, perform virtually over the internet, set their own schedule, and work without supervision.


There is NO experience necessary to be a webcam model, no required STD testing, and no need for a co-star.


The concept is simple:


Open Chat


Seductively dressed models log into a chat network via their chat software (or Web browser) and are placed into their own chat room while their home webcam is streaming live video. The best live chat sites offer open, or free chat and conduct all of their own marketing. All a model has to do on these sites is log in and chat to the chat room's users. Since there is no exchange of money in open chat, a model's goal is to entice users to take her private (1-on-1) and become paying customers. This is where the entertainment happens and how the chat networks and models earn their money.


Private Chat


While in private sessions, models earn a set amount per minute as the customers direct their very own adult shows. Customers even pay to chat with models without making any sexual requests, so a model can never know what to expect. Though models never have to do anything they're not comfortable with, they should at least be comfortable performing in solo (unless performing with another model), sexual situations.


Income Potential


While most webcam models don't begin making six figures over night, top models earn well over $100K per year! On average, new models start off earning between $20-30 per hour until they build a solid fan base. Performers who put in the time necessary to develop a customer following typically average between $50-100 per hour within a couple of months. With hard work, development, and dedication, webcam modeling can be a very rewarding and lucrative career.


What you need to know


The first thing that should be on your mind when you're shopping around for a company to work with is scam prevention. Unfortunately, around every wrong turn, especially in this industry is someone just waiting to separate you from your money; or, even worse, steal your identity.


Be very cautious who you do business with and trust with your personal information. Among other things, make sure that the company you work with has a website, is a legally registered business entity, and has a working phone number in case you need to get in touch with a real person. We hear horror stories all the time from models who've worked hard for several weeks only to not receive payment for their efforts, cash bad checks, or try in vain to reach anyone from the company. Do your research and avoid falling prey.


Secondly, contrary to what some companies would have you believe, webcam modeling will not make you rich over night. To be successful in this business means putting in time, practice, and for most requires guidance and support. On top of that, there are literally hundreds of different live video chat sites to choose from! Only a handful have the customer traffic and chat setup necessary for their models to make a great living and truly reap the full potential of this business.


Working with a model management company which specializes in managing webcam talent will ensure that you're in the best position possible from your very first login. This in turn will save you the hassle of signing up and performing on poorly trafficked, low paying webcam networks.


Do you have what it takes?


Becoming a true success story and earning a terrific income takes time, commitment, the right connections, and hard work. It's true for webcam modeling just as it's true for any other career. Models signing up for an effortless, get-rich-quick opportunity will only find disappointment ahead. If you're a hard worker, have a bit of a naughty side, and enjoy chatting to new people, you may just have what it takes to become a successful webcam model!


The first thing you'll need is the proper equipment (unless you're working from one of our studios). If you don't have a computer, camera, high speed internet, microphone, and proper lighting, you won't be able to make decent money. Customers aren't likely to pay for a show with a model they can't see or hear well; and, they'll go elsewhere. You'll also need a comfortable place to perform, sexy outfits, and at least a couple of your favorite toys. We recommend performing on a bed decorated with a bedspread and mellow backdrop which doesn't distract from the scene. Models performing from their office chairs amongst a room full of clutter will have difficulty competing.


Just as importantly, you'll need a strong desire to succeed. While we'll be there to guide you along the way, this will be your business. You're the boss! If you're not self motivated and driven, your business will fail. Top models put in between 30-40 hours per week. They set and keep a work schedule so their regular customers know when to find them online. They take the time to answer customer emails and they have an attractive set up with all the props. What really makes a top model is the ambition to never give up, to have patience and a big smile when business is slow, and the presence of mind to treat webcam modeling like any other business.


Lastly, a successful webcam model likes what they do. They enjoy their time online and it shows! A good webcam model is highly flirtatious and truly desires to get to know their clients. They make their customers feel special and understand that this business is all about a solid fan base (some customers spend over $250K per year with their favorite few models). The more time you put in online providing quality entertainment, the more customers you'll get to know, and the quicker you'll build a following that will come back to see you again and again.
