“Making some money with your webcam is very easy… making A LOT OF MONEY requires you to work!”

Being a webcam model isn’t some get-rich-quick scheme. 

There are still annoying moments when having a job as webcam model and most of these annoyances are not so much different from having a regular job. You still have to be in contact with people and you will still have to work hard if you want to earn good money.

However there are a lot of advantages of being a webcam model compared to a regular job:

No risk

You have some family members, and you don’t want them to discover what you are doing. We understand this and it is easily achievable in the adult webcam industry. 

When you sign up on webcam sites there is an option to forbid some clients which come from a certain state or country. 

So you can simply block your home country if you think that is risky for you and you can keep working while having no fear of being discovered.

Unlike other forms of sexual work you are in control! The only thing you have to do is to sit in front of your webcam and have tons of fun.

You don’t meet someone in real life, as a sexual worker. So there is no physical contact, and therefore no abuse.

Do something you like while earning money

First of all, I hope you like to masturbate because if you don’t, this isn’t the job for you.

But if you do, then this job can be heaven on earth. 

You don’t have to get out of your bed to get paid!


You are your own boss! 

You decide your hours, what you do, and when you do it. You will experience more freedom than you ever experienced before.

Of course, the more you work, the higher your potential earnings.

What will follow is the only detailed information you will ever need for becoming a webcam performer.

So if you are serious about this and want to learn more please continue to read you won’t regret it.

As a fresh webcam model, first and foremost, you have to realize that you are the star of the show!

You are the entertainer not the spectator. 

Always remember that you are giving a performance for the benefit and enjoyment of the people that are watching you.

Typical misconceptions

I have too much belly fat… I’m too old… I’m not beautiful…. I’m disabled..

Let me tell you a story about a girl who is webcam performer and blew my mind when I just started with getting into the adult webcam scene. Let me call her “Steffi” to protect her privacy. 

She has incredible cam modelling skills, every time she came online there are an insane amount of clients waiting to see her.

But these modelling skills have nothing to do with Steffi’s appearance. She is fat (not bad intended), doesn’t have a very attractive face, she has big tits…

You can probably already imagine how she looks like. She would have a decent chance of winning miss ugly.

You can ask yourself how does this work and how can she earn money with being ugly?

First of all she has a lot of feminine energy. When she starts performing she is like the sun that just sends a lot of fun emotions and positive energy to her audience. She is upbeat, always enthusiastic and she personally greets every person that enters her chat rooms.

She never gets irritated at answering the same questions, doing the same things over and over again. 

In short cam modeling skill set has nothing to do with your physical appearance; it is all about learning how to become a good entertainer and being able to market yourself.

"not steffi"

I won’t say it isn’t a bit easier for very attractive models to earn a lot of money although the difference is very minimal. A very attractive but rather annoying/complaining negative model will earn a lot less money than a far less attractive girl with a great personality.

Second thing to notice is that there are guys who prefer rather fat girls over skinny girls. 

There are so many different niches and so many different people in the nude amateur webcam niche that there is an audience for everyone!

But we know for a fact that personality which is not linked to physical attractiveness has a huge influence on your potential earnings.

To repeat myself but to make my point clear.. if you have a physical deformity or even a disability, you can still make tons of money with your webcam!

There is someone, somewhere that will be highly turned on by some aspects of your body that you actually hate!

Ok I see you are a straight man.. and you think you can’t make any money with webcams?

Wrong, although you must know that most money you will earn will be tipped from bisexual or gay men. This is because we all know that men spend a lot more money on these webcam sites compared to women. 

An important note is: “If you are straight just be yourself! Don’t pretend that you are gay or bisexual”. 

This will have a negative impact on your income because of several reasons:

  • You aren’t yourself. People sense this and will not be inclined in giving you money.
  • Gay and Bisexual men like to turn on a heterosexual boy and would even tip them more than they would tip a gay webcam.
  • If you say you are gay/bi you will be spammed from other males that want to meet you. If you say you are heterosexual you will be less likely to get your inbox filled with such requests.

The next step is choosing which webcam site you want to use… 

This is the hardest part because if you choose wrong you can waste a lot of time and waste a lot of potential money. 

Luckily I have written here a blog post where I compare all the different amateur webcam model sites in to give you the best overview of all of the existing webcam sites there are available to earn you money. if you are looking for gay only webcam sites then read this post
