“Don’t think about the money, think about the longterm career”. Is one of the first things Studio20 tells their new models when they want to become a cam model. Why? Because they know, from experiences with many models, that patience is not one of their fortes, and they want to make money fast, now! Well, that’s not how you succeed in this line of work.
We all know that ‘money’ is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about becoming a cam model. But to become a successful model, you should consider your longterm career. You need patience, you need to be consistent, work long hours, improve yourself constantly and instead of thinking about how much money you will make, start thinking about how to make your members stay longer with you.
One of the best advice we can give to new models is to be true to who they are and know their risks. If they’re not ready to admit to others what they do, if they’re ashamed to do it, then they will never become successful cam models. Once they come out of the box, their focus will be on their career and nothing will stop them achieve greatness.
With every job you get, with every business you want to have, you always work your way up. No one was born a manager or a CEO, everyone worked hard to achieve their goals. So why does camming have to be different? It isn’t. You won’t make millions overnight, you have to work hard to make your dreams come true. Every successful cam model will tell you that in their first 35 months their income wasn’t that great. But their focus wasn’t on money, but on making a name for themselves. The first step in becoming a great cam model is to be known, treat your camming job as a business and promote it. Work on your people skills, use Social Media to promote your name, make it your own personal brand. Create a Twitter account, stay connected daily with your fans and you will make them your members in no time.
The second step is to be consistent with your hours online. Pick a time frame, be it day or night, and stay logged in a minimum of 8h/day, 5 days a week. If you keep up with a schedule, your profile will be seen on the first pages of the site, which means more members online in your chat room. In the first few months, your main focus should be attracting as many members as you can and create your fan base. Once you do that, your members will become regulars and you will start making money.
The third step is to improve yourself. Improve your English skills, learn how to talk to members, how to attract them, learn what your strong points are and focus on them, learn what your weak points are and correct them. Don’t focus on how much money you’ve made so far, focus on what to improve, work on growing as a person, as a cam model, and as business manager. Because that’s what you are. A cam model is a business owner, promoting, improving, taking care of their “company” which is their camming career.
Last and the most important step is not to lose focus. Once you get there, once you start making money, once you have a name for yourself, don’t throw it all away by thinking you’re the best and nothing can touch you. There will always be someone that’s better than you, smarter than you, sexier than you. You still need to improve yourself, you still need to keep up the good work, be consistent with your hours online, keep in touch with your members. They will always find someone else to go to, so you need to find different ways to keep them by your side or attract others.
In the camming business, there’s always room to grow, no matter how old you are in this line of work. We never stop learning in our daytoday lives and this applies to your cam girl life as well. All in all, working as a cam girl will make you realize that it’s more important to think about your career, branding your name, being known by others, and by doing that, money will come. Keep in mind that it’s hard at first, but it gets easier with time, patience and perseverance.
