Get Started As A Adult Webcam/Cam Model
Interested in a job as a webcam model? Becoming a performer in the adult industry is simple and easy. Anyone can do it and there’s no hiring process, instead it’s simply an age-verification process. All genders and sexual orientations are welcome and anyone 18+ can get started. Work from home, set your own hours and only perform the type of shows you want to perform!
What’s Required To Get Started
Must Be 18+ Or Older
The main requirement is that you must be eighteen years old or older. There are no exceptions. Certain countries / regions might require that you are over the age of eighteen. Anyone that you perform with (for couples / groups) must also be over the age of eighteen.
When registering for any of the sites, performers must submit a valid government-issued photo ID. This is for age verification and something all sites must do to stay compliant with laws. Your submitted ID and personal information is always kept private and secure.
There are also camming equipment requirements. You’ll need a webcam, computer, high-speed internet and a place to perform. An external HD webcam is highly recommended and you’ll make more money with a higher quality webcam. There’s also suggestion equipment such as sex toys and outfits.
How Much Money Webcam Models Make
This is a very complicated question with a very complicated answer. The industry is performance-based. That means that there isn’t a wage or a salary. You get as much out of the work as you put into it. Someone who’s online more, doing promotion and producing more content will get more out of it than someone doing the bare minimum. The earning potential is very significant for those that are a good fit for the industry. It’s realistic for camgirls to be making anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000 per month, with the top performers earning significantly more than that.
Signing Up As A Camgirl / Webcam Model
Step 1: Required Equipment
If you don’t already have all the required equipment, that’s the first step. You’ll need a webcam, high-speed internet, computer and a place to perform. An HD webcam is highly preferred and you’ll make more money with it. If you don’t have all the required equipment, you can still offer other services like phone sex (see below)
Step 2: Choose Your Stage Name
Before you signup for a camming site, you need to choose your stage name. This is what you’re going to be going by on the camming site, social media and everywhere else. This is your “adult persona”. It’s suggested to take some time to pick the perfect name. It’s possible to change this later, but rebranding is tough and it’s best to get it right the 1st time.
Step 3: Choose A Camming Site
The first step is to signup for a camming site. Sign up Chaturbate or Bongacams. There’s tons of different sites to choose from and each site has different features and functionality. There’s no “best camming site”, as all of them are unique in their own way. We compare token sites to private sites later in this guide.
Step 4: Get Verified
The next step is to get verified. All sites will require that their models get verified before performing. This is to ensure that everyone is over the age of eighteen, which is required by law. You’ll need a digital copy of photo ID for this process. You’ll also have to provide a W9 and provide all the information to receive payouts.
Step 5: Fill Out Your Profile
Now that you’re registered and verified, it’s time to fill out your profile. Having a complete profile is very important, as it helps potential customers find you on the site. Some sites have more basic profiles, while others are more customizable. Also make sure to use a sexy profile photo, as that’ll attract potential customers who are browsing models.
Now that you’re signed up, verified and your profile is complete, it’s time to fire up the webcam and start performing! Most sites offer bonus exposure for brand new models, so make sure to take advantage of it! We’ll go more into how the sites and camming sites work later in this
