It’s often thought that being a webcam girl is a quick fix career – an easy job and an easy way to make lots of money. Yes, it’s a job in which can accommodate your lifestyle, it’s also possible to earn a comfortable income, but it’s not easy and it’s certainly not a quick fix. Adult work requires patience, perseverance and a lot of planning. You’ve got to be good at what you do and willing to go above and beyond in order to succeed in a highly competitive industry.

Due to the global pandemic, camming profiles in the UKhave increased by over 35% over the last year. Instant success is now harder than it’s ever been. Only those with integrity and who genuinely love what they do will make their mark.

Dedication and Responsibility

Essentially, your success is down to you. There is a lot of behind the scenes work that must be done to grow your fan base. You must be prepared to market yourself accordingly, this includes taking some time to set up different social media accounts.

As we’ve spoken about previously, it’s advisable to completely separate your personal social accounts from your work platforms for your own security and safety. Do your research, check out forums and look at other successful models’ profiles to see how they’re growing their followers and securing themselves shows watched by thousands. If used correctly, platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat can play a large role in getting your services a lot of attention.

One of the most attractive elements ofbeing a webcam girl is that you’re in charge of your working hours and can go online whenever is convenient for you. However, with this luxury comes responsibility. Being in control of your working days means that it’s a lot easier to take time off. Online, you play a persona and sometimes, you will have days where you don’t feel like being that personality. It’s important to be prepared for days like this. If you’re serious about breaking the adult industry, don’t make extended time off a regular occurrence, just because you feel like you need a couple of days to catch up on the latest Netflix series.

Expenses

Initially, being a webcam girl can be expensive. You need to invest in some good equipment to aid you on your journey of success. Having a good quality laptop, HD camera and high sound quality microphone are all things that will pay off in the long run. The better quality your shows are, the more viewers you will entice; but it’s quite a payout to start off with. Quality internet upload speed is definitely something to consider. You’ll also need reputable cybersecurity to protect your laptop from viruses and malware.

Depending on the services you plan to offer, keep in mind that outfits, make up and sex toys must be purchased to keep your content interesting and set you apart from the competition. Again, research here is key because you can see what works and also, if there’s a market for something more niche. Remember, be creative because there is a market for everything.

Planning

Being a webcam girlmeans you’ve got to be motivated to plan ahead of time. It’s always better to have some concepts in the bank ready for live shows, or a notebook of ideas for fresh social media content. Being organised will help you to feel more at ease, and therefore, more confident on camera.

Withplanning comes preparation for different scenarios on camera. For security, it’s important to keep your real identity secure, so always have your facts straight. Sometimes, fans may ask you personal questions. This could be your name, date of birth, maybe your location. Never give out your real personal information, instead, try a similar version of the truth. You can still be friendly and realistic, but you don’t want to look like a rabbit in headlights the first time it happens. Spend some time practicing what you will say and you’ll style it out like a professional in no time.
