If you’re thinking of becoming a cam girl, there are a few things you should know before getting started. There is a common misconception that being a cam girl is an easy job, in fact, it’s quite the opposite and there is a lot to consider in order to become successful in the industry. At Off The Record Models, our online webcam girls are some of the best professionals in the adult industry, so we thought we’d give a little insight into the essential do’s of camming.

 

Plan

 

It’s important to remember that camming is essentially freelance work. Yes, you always have the support of your agency (if you have one), but you have to be disciplined enough to plan your shifts and schedule the time you spend online. It’s always a good idea to have an idea of where your shows are going, and this is especially important for new cam girls. As our online webcam girls say, your goal here is to gain a regular following to increase your income, this requires strategic planning to keep viewers interested for as long as possible. Plan countdowns on social media to keep eyes on your content and you could even consider special incentives for high tips. A lack of direction only leads to disorganisation, poorly paced shows and potential burnout.

 

Research

 

Before you start out, it’s important to do your research. Consider the type of shows and content you wish to deliver, this will help you to see what’s out there. Our online webcam girls recommend finding a niche, aka, something you can offer, that not many others do. This could be a fetish of some sort, or a physical feature that you wish to show off i.e.: long nails, long hair. We would always suggest trying to stand out from the crowd as much as possible, because competition in this industry is fierce!

 

Make an Effort

 

Whatever your profession, you make an effort for work. The same goes for camming and there’s actually a lot more to consider than what you wear. It’s essential to make an effort with your equipment, for example, investing in a good quality camera and microphone will be worth weight in gold. The better quality of your video and sound, the more viewers will stick around! Creating a unique working atmosphere is an important factor also. Our online webcam girls recommend adding some good lighting, props and decoration to make your space exciting for viewers, but also comfortable for you.

 

Remember to wear what makes you feel confident. By all means, wearing something that fits with your cam persona is a great idea, but be sure you can move in it and above all, that it makes you feel good! Viewers will be able to see if you’re uncomfortable and quickly lose interest.
