Performing live in front of your webcam for thousands of people and getting paid from the tips they send you?

How to Become a Webcam Model (Step by Step)
In this article I’m about to show you and walk you through some of the most important and basic steps you need to learn if you want to become a cam model.
Let’s go through them together:
Learn Webcam Modeling Basics
Learning webcam modeling is easy. Whole Industry works like this:
You have a paying kinky customers on one end and us on the other end (webcam models) getting ready to take their money 😉
Getting Paid as a Webcam Model
It’s easy, you get paid by the minute or you get paid with tokens. Each cam site is different, and each site pays different margins.
Webcam models get usually anywhere between 40% and 80% of the sum earned.
You can convert those tokens for money (it’s usually all automated by the company site you work for).
Protect Your Privacy
Don’t tell anything anyone about who you are and what’s your real name. Stalkers can be a nasty problem to get rid off.
Use your cam name, create an easy to remember name and create a brand out of it.
You have 3 types of industry scams to watch out for:
Webcam studio is essentially someone who is taking a cut from the cut they get from the webcam site or company they sign you up for.
It goes like this:
Cam Site > Webcam Studio > Webcam Model
Now you see this BS right? You do all the work, while they take all the cash and rewards, thank you but NO thank you.
Webcam affiliates are not scam actually, but they get too far sometimes, writing and reviewing cam sites which are either a complete BS, white label and waste of time.
Before trusting any affiliate, check the site for yourself first, search what percentage do they give to cam girls or guys.
It goes like this:
Webcam affiliate > This Cam Site Is AWESOME > Webcam Model Signs Up > Turns Out to be a Lie > Webcam Model Makes Money For Studio or Agency.
White Label Webcam Modeling Sites
These are the biggest LIARS, they are essentially a person or a company, taking a website code from the cam company (legally of course through their affiliate programs).
Once they have the code, they setup the same site but with a different name.
Why is this bad?
Because you end up working for some FAKE cam site and you get to build your reputation on a fake website where the white label owner gets a cut from you as long as you work there.
It goes like this:
Webcam company > White Label > Affiliate, Studio copy the code > You end up signing up for the FAKE cam site.
These were straight to the point and basic webcam modeling facts that you need to know, let’s go straight to step 2 of learning how to become a webcam girl.
Find Highest Paying Webcam Modeling Websites
