Camming Without Traffic

Probably the biggest problem new cam girls will face, these days, is getting enough traffic into their chatrooms. Yes, room count is the biggest issue most webcam models will deal with when they’re just getting started, and it’s kind of understandable given that the camming business has never been more competitive. All those news stories about how much cam girls make have been having an impact, and attractive girls around the world are flooding onto cam sites like Chaturbate and MyFreeCams like it’s the newest big thing. If you’re gonna start as a cam model in this environment, you need to know how to get yourself some traffic.

Traffic is the most difficult part of any internet business, and as someone who is both a cam girl AND an internet marketer, I can certainly attest to that. Luckily, though, I was able to put a lot of my internet marketing skills to the task of getting viewers into my cam site chatroom, and it’s been a huge success. I do it mostly with my Snapchat and Twitter accounts, but you can also use these tactics with other social media platforms.

On Snapchat, getting traffic is all about the takeovers. What you need to do is go onto Twitter and find adult accounts that have large Snapchats (ones with lots of viewers). Pornhub, Youporn, Redtube, Manyvids, and BearHugCamGirls are just a few. Then, tweet them and ask to do a takeover on their Snapchat. Make sure your Twitter is completely filled out and loaded with lots of selfies of you, so you look like a good candidate for the takeover.

Once you get a takeover, make sure to snap a LOT during the 24 hours you have the account. Promo your Twitter and your free Snapchat account by using QR “snapcodes” which send viewers straight to the profile. The owner of the Snap you’re taking over for the day will be sure to have rules you have to follow, so make certain that you do that. One of the rules will be no nudity, and that’s a big one. Nude snaps are technically not allowed on Snapchat and can get an account pulled.

Your Twitter following should benefit quite a bit from the takeovers, but you can also build up your followers by finding top cam girls and following their followers. Most of the guys and other models will follow you back as long as your profile is filled out and looks appealing.
Once you’ve got a decent audience on your free Snapchat and Twitter accounts, you can promote your chat room url by either posting a link to it on Twitter, or using a QR snapcode on your Snapchat. This method really helps to plump up your room count and can give you a great boost when you’re still new and trafficless!

Cam Girl Problems To Lookout For

When you’re a cam girl starting out in the business, one of the biggest problems you’ll face is getting your viewers interested in you enough to start talking or tipping. Getting your room activity up is crucial if you want to make any serious money on Chaturbate and MFC, but it’s also important on sites like CamSoda and Naked.com.

The best way to do this is to get people interested by bringing up sexual subject matter. Everybody has juicy sex secrets about what they did in college, or at camp, or on that crazy field trip. Just open up and start sharing your deepest sexual secrets and you’ll see how your viewers liven up and start engaging you in conversation. An active public chat is the beginning of the process for getting members to tip and buy shows.

Another major problem cam girls have is getting guys to take you private for more than a few minutes. It’s a common frustration among webcam models because, frankly, a lot of dudes tend to “go off” fairly quickly after a private show begins. The way to mitigate this is simply to talk to them for a while before you get to the action. Instead of just rushing to take your clothes off after they click the “private show” button, ask them some questions about themselves. Try to get them to share some of their kinks and fetishes, and get them to explain them fully. Members LOVE talking about their kinks, so if you ask them questions and seem to be genuinely interested, they’ll be talking for quite a while. Then, when you get to the action, they’ll be more relaxed, more into you, and will generally be much better private buyers.

The last major cam girl problem I want to address is the issue of slumps. Like in any business, cam models will inevitably run into periods where they make very little, and they’ll usually blame themselves and think they’re failing in the business. No, no, no! You must not fall into that trap. Slumps will occur, and they’re absolutely normal. One day might be great, then next two might be horrible, and then the next might be the best day you’ve ever had. Sometimes slumps last a week or more. When that happens, just mix things up and try some new things. Don’t get depressed, and definitely don’t quit camming because of rough patches. They happen to us all!

Okay, that’s it for now, but I’ve got several more cam girl problems I want to address, so stay tuned for a new post about those soon!

Cam Site Revenue Shares

A girl I referred to a major cam site once called me on the phone almost in tears to report that she had just got paid by the site..and she only got 35% of the money she thought she had made. I almost laughed, but then I explained that models have to split what a member spends on them with the cam site. It’s just how it’s done. She replied that they were taking way too much, and I had to agree with that.

I only referred her to that cam site because I thought it would be the best place where a model of her body type would do best, but it’s true that it takes too much of a revenue share. There are other major cam sites (like Chaturbate and MFC) that take under 50% of the total. When I told her that, she immediately registered an account on MyFreeCams and started camming there. After a week, she was calling me yet again, in tears, complaining that now she was making less money than she was at the previous site that was only giving her 35%.

I tried to explain that she shouldn’t get hooked on the percentage of the revenue split, she should focus on the amount of money she’s making per hour on cam. It was clear that the first site was much better for her, and I knew that when I recommended it to her, but she got swayed by the larger percentage at MyFreeCams.  Big mistake.

When you’re deciding which cam site to make your main site, you need to take a lot of different things into account — and revenue shares are just one of them. The main consideration, if you ask me, is whether or not the traffic likes models who look like you. For example, if you’re a super curvy girl, you should be camming at Naked.com or Camster, not MyFreeCams. The viewer audience at MFC is far less interested in curvy girls than the audience at Naked.com.

If you’re a thin girl, you’ll do much better at MFC, but then you also have to take into account the fact that you’ll need at least a few fans already in your orbit if you expect to debut well there. The camscore on MFC makes it hella difficult for new cam girls to get established, and bringing some followers with you when you start camming there really helps to solve that problem.

So, basically, don’t obsess over the revenue percentages when you’re considering where to cam. Check out each site carefully and decide which you think would be better for you, then give it a shot. Plus, you can also experiment with other sites down the road, and you should, actually. But the revenue split should never be your only consideration.

My Blog Begins

Okay, so the new trend among cam girls is to start blogging about the camming business and giving advice to new models. So, yeah, I’m not gonna be left behind on that. I plan to share what I’ve learned over the past couple years as a webcam model and, hopefully, help a few of you out there who are thinking about jumping into this industry, or who are struggling cam girls who need assistance. This can be a great way to make money from home, but you gotta have the right info. Stay tuned for lots from me, I love to write!! 😉
