How Do Webcam Models Actually Make Money?
So if you read “How Much Money Do Webcam Models Make?” the next obvious question is, “how do they actually make that?”
It’s probably better to say, “how do they EARN that money?” As we aren’t actually physically printing money, though it sometimes feels that way.
Our models earn money by delivering a product that customers want. What that product actually is varies from model to model. A lot of people receive the impression that what we do is, “Live Sex Cams”. While that certainly is a big part of what we do, to think that it is ALL we do is a major oversight. Many of our models spend more time in private shows fully dressed, just talking to customers, than they spend naked performing sex/masturbation shows. This is one of the big secrets that most people are never told when applying to be a webcam model. Now you know :).
We help every one of our models determine what the best product they can offer is and then show them how to attract the customers that will want that specific product.
So what are you actually going to be doing to earn money? What will it look like? Is this something you’re actually cool with doing? Let’s dive in and see.
I want to walk you through the typical shift a model works. This should give you some clarity on what the process of making money actually looks like with us.
The first step is to login obviously. Once you are activated you’ll download our broadcasting software that you will use to login to our network. As soon as you login you are inside your chat room and usually within about 30-60 seconds customers will start coming into your room.
There are three levels of customers and they are distinguished by the color of their username.
Grey customers: These are people who do not have an account on our site and are thus unable to spend money. In order for them to spend money they have to first create an account. Because they can’t spend money we encourage people to not spend much time talking to them.
White customers: These are people who have an account and have a credit card on file. They can spend money on you and are who you should focus on attracting.
Gold customers: These are VIP customers. Essentially you will treat them the same as white customers. VIP doesn’t necessarily mean they spend a ton of money. It just means they pay $30/month to have a VIP membership which gives them a few added options in how they use the site.
Once you get into your chat room and have customers coming in you will be talking to them, starting conversations, getting to know them, and figuring out who will actually take you private. We have all sorts of tactics and protocols for this that we teach to our new models.
Most of the money you earn webcam modeling will come from private shows with customers. They pay anywhere from $4-15 per minute depending on your login rate. All new models start out at $6/minute. There are a lot of models on the site in the $4-5 per minute range but we think this is a bit low and as such we don’t have our models work at this level. We prefer to compete for the top rather than the bottom.
At 60cpm you’ll need to spend about 18 minutes in show each hour to make 1,000 credits. Like most things, it’s usually not this cut and dry. You’ll have a series of 3-4 minute shows, especially starting out. And then other times you’ll have much longer shows that last 30 minutes or more.
Once you really get good and have loyal fans you’ll find customers that take you private time after time for hours on end. This is when webcam modeling starts to get really fun :).
There are other ways to make money online apart from private shows. Customers can tip you and send you credit gifts (same thing as a tip basically). There are also two other login types called Party Chat and Group Chat. It’s not in the scope of this article to go into detail on them as they aren’t immediately available to new models. However, once you get access we’ll show you how to use these types to make even more money per hour.
There are two basic skills you’re going to have to learn in order to make a lot of money.
The first is how to work your open chat. We cover this in extensive detail with new models but to give you a teaser some of the things you learn will be:
- How to get people to stay in your room longer.
- How to find out who will take you private and who won’t.
- How to escalate from a casual conversation to a private show.
- How to get rid of any customers that annoy you.
- Much much more…
The second relates to how to extend private shows. How to turn a 10 minute private show into an hour long private show and so on. We have a lot of protocols for this as well that we cover with new models. Both lead to our models making a lot of money.
I hope this gives you a clear idea of what a webcam model actually does to make money and also how we train our models. If you’d like to volunteer to take part in some of this training here is a link to our application.
