How to set your boundaries

Learn how to set your boundaries to lay down ground rules and command the respect of chat room visitors.

Who is the boss of your chat room? It is YOU! Not those who enter!

A common problem for cam models, especially newbies, is site members trying to take advantage and tell them what to do.

Members can be cheeky, bossy and persistent at times.

When a model is told to do things for no financial reward, including demands for things she is not comfortable with, this is tedious.

Inexperienced models are vulnerable to this nature of exploitation, so gaining awareness of what boundaries are and how to set them is key.

First thing’s first, what are your boundaries? Do you know how to define them? Consider these questions:

  • How do you want to appear to viewers? I advise, keep it classy for the most respectful approaches!
  • What are you prepared to do and show on cam? Think about your comfort levels in live mode versus private mode.
  • Which things are you not willing do on cam? Consider types of actions and shows involving nudity and sexual acts.
  • What level of behaviour do you expect from your viewers? Consider if you are happy to have both interactive and non interactive viewers present, and determine who you will permit to chat/stay in your room.
  • How you would like them to address and communicate with you? For example should they address you by name, by a title or by specific terms. Understand that politeness and common decency is what you deserve.
  • Would there be any rules you would set (your own code of conduct) on top of the site rules? This could relate to financial things like minimums or pretips. It could also relate to things like interaction and behaviour.

It is really important to be clear on your answers. Answer them how you feel most comfortable. Write them down for your reference. This forms the basis of how to set your boundaries and ultimately, how to manage your chat room.

All cam sites have a bio section on the model profiles, where models can write information about themselves. Depending on the site, some also have a chat room rules or chat room notice section.

Wherever there is a free format box to input your own text, is a good place to make your own boundaries and rules clear.

Type your own rules out in short bullet points. Bullet points are easy for people to read and understand. Keep it polite and friendly.

Example of chat room rules:

Work on your own chat room rules using this as a guideline… Then go online and put your rules into action!

When members come into your room, you will find that some are proactive and read the profile information. Many others are not and will not. You can never tell who will and who won’t, so start voicing it!

It is perfectly fine to ask members to read and observe your rules when they enter. It might feel a little awkward to start with! However the more you do this, the more natural it feels.

Doing this is a polite ice-breaker and commands respect as soon as members meet you. It lets people know you have expectations and boundaries… and standards!

Be strong! Stick to your rules and never lose sight of your boundaries.

If these are questioned by any person, inform them that webcamming is your job. You are there to work and operate as a professional.

If they do not wish to comply, they can leave (or you can kick them out)!

You’ll soon be bossing your chat room before you know it! You got this!

Now you know how to set your boundaries, would you like some help with show ideas?

Your webcam success hinges on…

Your webcam success hinges on some essential character traits. Here I explain what these are and why they matter.

As an established presence in the industry, LVE Models are never short of aspiring models approaching in the quest for cam model success.

Where we differ from most agencies who play a numbers game, is we do not chase commission at the cost of the individual.

We do not sign just anyone, without considering whether they are suited to the work or not.

LVE Models look for a certain type of model and we are stringent with our interview process.

We do this because our experience tells us that only a certain type of model will be successful. And, it is not all about how they look in application photos.

Becoming a profitable cam model is 80% character and mental capacity to do the work. Only 20% is how the individual looks.

Your webcam success hinges on the right outlook and approach. We look for the following character traits in all applicants:

First and foremost, a great attitude is required. This includes a likeable nature and a positive view on cam modelling as a whole.

A bad attitude results in a poor approach to the work. It also has a repelling effect on the guys who are most likely to spend the money.

In every case we refuse to take on candidates who do not possess a positive, personable attitude when we interview them.

The ability to self-discipline is essential. This means to get online and work the required hours in order to make money and build the following.

Lack of self-discipline and flakiness never results in success.

Success is all about consistency, which comes only from the disciplined individuals.

We ask the following questions and make clear:

The candidates who understand the above and show that they possess this mindset and potential, are candidates we will invest time in.

How capable are you to self-motivate? Self-motivation links back to the discipline element.

Remind yourself continually of your motives to work, i.e. why you want to be successful on cam, because this is the driving force.

Read my article Secrets to self-motivation to learn about motives and goal setting.

Lack of self-motivation often comes and goes in cam models, due to the industry peaks and troughs.

The ability to stay motivated through thick and thin is paramount in order to be successful on cam.

We help models with motivation as part of our support group, however the willingness needs to be there to start with.

Resilience goes hand in hand with motivation and discipline. This is the power to push through, no matter what!

They stay strong, focussed on their game through difficult times.

They accept that dealing with unpleasant users or working through personal issues just is part and parcel of the job.

The prime candidate for cam model success will therefore:

Have AWESOME ATTITUDE * Be highly MOTIVATED * Be DISCIPLINED to work to a schedule * Possess the ability to stay strong and RESILIENT through the inevitable ups and downs.

Cam Model Mentoring

We here at LVE Models understand that these essential character traits will come easier in some indiviuals than others.

These traits are present in many individuals; they just need to be coached and encouraged. Others possess them naturally in abundance and need minimum mentoring.

We understand that every candidate’s mindset towards the idea of success can vary. Everyone’s mindset towards the industry can vary, too.

Some have far-fetched preconceptions of what it’s actually like to be a cam model, or what they have to do to be successful.

Mindset is formed due to factors like personal circumstances, habits, assumptions and past experiences.

We are very perceptive and where we sense significant negativity, this is never a good sign.

These are the candidates who are unlikely to be succesful on cam, therefore we don’t put them through the application process.

Where there are relatively minor objections, obstacles or assumptions we can clear up, we mentor these models along on the track to success.

Ethical Approach

During our interview process we give all candidates a reality check. We lay on the line what is expected of them.

Our experience tells us that models who have significant barriers to working on cam, will by default not be successful on cam.

This is purely because they will not get on and work the required hours to be successful.

These might be physical or mental barriers, or to do with family or relationships.

We turn many applicants away based on the fact they either don’t possess what we require, or we feel the industry will have negative bearing on their mental welfare or home life.

Some we send away armed with information to consider, and leave it down to them to decide if it is right for them.

Webcamming is not for everyone. There are psychological implications of the industry. Read my article This is SEX WORK, can you handle it?

Now you have an idea what your success on webcam hinges on, take a more detailed look around my blog. You’ll find more articles to l help you decide if webcamming is right for you, and if you are right for webcamming.

SPOTLIGHT

Why strippers make the best camgirls

Pink Champagne’s Nova flies the flag for exotic dancers building their success in the camming world. We discuss how Covid19 was a blessing in disguise, why strippers make the best camgirls and how our two brands have found the perfect synergy.

Exotic dance agency owner Nova Ramone is one of two partners facing up Pink Champage Entertainment. She is also one of LVE Models‘ feature performers.

Pink Champagne Entertainment is 100% female owned and operated, based in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

Nova and her business partner Ivy West created their own brand following years working the strip venues.

They had experienced first hand the unethical ways some male dominated agencies failed their entertainers, and wanted to revolutionise the stigma.

Pink Champagne’s mission is to provide a safe, respectful and motivational atmosphere for all exotic entertainers to work and thrive in.

We have been so disappointed with how female dancers are treated. Some agencies charge such high fees and take a greater chunk of earnings than they rightfully should.

At Pink Champagne our primary focus is the entertainers; their growth, safety and empowerment. As a result, they’re happy and put out quality performances.

Nova Ramone

Business was booming for Pink Champagne, when the Covid19 pandemic shook the world in the early part of 2020. The same way it did in almost every other country and continent, the dreaded C-word spread like wildfire in Canada.

Nobody knew how long it would go on, but the fate of strip clubs and all other social nightlife forms saw them dark and desolate for the next two to three years.

With mass shutdowns and mass panic; individuals working in these sectors were forced to explore other options.

It was a matter of doing whatever you could, just to keep your head above water.

With concerns over the future of her business amidst the Covid uncertainty, the Pink Champagne lady initially turned her hand to content creating on a major fans platform.

After a year not going anywhere on the fans platform, came her lucky break.

A connection from Nova’s dancing network – a fellow Canadian recently signed to LVE Models – led her to the cam model opportunity via a shoutout on her Instagram story.

“I turned to webcamming during Covid because I needed to make money quickly.

I had tried Only Fans for a year, it was a lot of effort for very little reward.

A fellow dancer who had joined LVE Models tagged them on an Instagram post.

She told me how it worked and that the network was lucrative. I immediately submitted my application.

Honestly, the pandemic was a blessing in disguise. Had it not been for Covid, I would not have discovered how amazing this is.

Nova and I, both from an exotic dancing background; discussed our collective ideology of why strippers make the best camgirls.

We concluded that it is because webcamming is the perfect compliment to exotic dancing, due to the principles being much the same.

For starters, any female who is comfortable taking her clothes off in front of a stranger has already embraced her next-level confidence.

The appealing physical movements of lapdancers are transferable online and make great cam shows. These girls know how work their bodies to get the men spending their cash!

It takes a certain level of mental aptitude and discipline to manage onself in both of these environments.

Lapdancers, once they’ve gone the distance in that arena, are well-primed to take the next step into camming.

Adult entertainment is so much more than people realise. Both dancing and camming require a certain level of perception and self-awareness that only a certain type of female has.

In both areas you’re doing sales, advertising, networking, performing and so much more. You’re an agency in and of yourself.

Nova Ramone

Nova believes her consistent and adaptable approach has helped her master her top-notch money-making skills.

The arts of self-selling and conversational fluency are essential when working one’s magic on the best spenders, be it in person or online.

Our experience tells us that these things, accordingly, come with experience.

Gaining these skills is something any performer can do but it’s a long game which requires persistence and resilience.

Many just drop away if they don’t pay attention to this requirement or can’t be bothered to invest the time in learning.

Let us not forget that strippers are undoubtedly in the forefront where it comes to creativity, as a result of their ability to adapt theme and styling for dance shows. This is gold when translated into live cam shows.

As a dancer I am used to getting into character. I can make absolutely any setting or scenario into a sexy fun time in which to monetise.

Every day and night is different as a stripper or as a camgirl. Whatever crowd I experience I am able to take it in, adapt and slay.

Nova Ramone

Since Nova came on board with LVE Models, a natural synergy began to form between the two companies.

Both LVE Models and Pink Champagne offer a high-end professional service, helping high quality models and performers be successful.

They help individuals achieve their the maximum earning potential whilst ensuring they feel comfortable and supported in their respective outlets.

LVE Models are what Pink Champagne Entertainment is all about: community spirit and lifting each other up. This is important and fundamental to the success of individuals and companies as a whole.

There is no throwing girls into the mix to figure it out on their own. They prepare you to become a pro and support you through learning the platform.

It doesn’t matter how much experience you have in any subset of sex work; a new outlet can be overwhelming. LVE Models take that factor out and make it stress-free.

LVE Models don’t charge commission like other agencies do. Models are motivated knowing they can earn good money whilst being appreciated for their hard work.

Nova Ramone

The amount of information, tips and experience LVE Models pass on to their models is mind-boggling.

The platform is very expansive with many options and features.

Without the road map that LVE Models provide I would have spent this past year just trying to get my footing with all of it.

The guidance ensured I came in prepared to hit the ground running, and with confidence.

Beyond that, I was connected to other LVE Models through a group Whatsapp, so questions or issues outside of the standard guidance can be sounded out with other cam models, who are all supportive like a sisterhood.”

Through the past year Nova has introduced her Pink Champagne dancers to LVE Models and features them into her cam shows. Not only has this enabled creativity to hit new heights, stronger bonds have formed between the entertainers.

This has proven invaluable to their working relationships; both as lapdancers and as camgirls.

It was due to my success and satisfation with LVE that I recommended many dancers in my company to join.

Over half of Pink Champagne’s entertainers are now registered on the platform, including my business partner Ivy West.

I arrange duo shows and we switch these up with different themes and goal shows each time.

Beyond that, us having such intimacy on cam means our shows are raw, genuine, and dynamic as all hell!

Nova Ramone

Nova keeps her busy chat room bolstered by her exotic dance followers. Her sharp business brain told her it would be a good idea to get Pink Champagne business cards printed with her chat room link on.

So she did, and she hands these out at her dance events, enabling customers she meets face to face to visit her online.

Some of the entertainers Nova has brought to the network have gone ahead and done the same. This tactic engineers additional revenue from their private dance guys, which in the process helps the dancing girls become establised cam models.

Nova explains that these visitors are men they’ve formed close connections with, owing to previously meeting in person. Close connections result in them wanting more.

Having an online platform to meet again faciliates this in a way which respects the entertainers’ personal boundaries.

From our customers’ perspectives, they get to watch beautiful women performing as strippers. This gets them hot, whilst they know they cannot do anything more than enjoy seeing us naked.

Giving them a card with our chat room info means they can do exactly what they think about doing to us, through tip activated toys.

It’s a whole new level of interacting which they find exciting and brings in a respectable amount of income!

Nova Ramone

“LVE Models can skyrocket you to top model standing if you’re ready to put in the time and effort.

If you want to maximise your income and grow your network, LVE Models is a major brand booster.

Their support, guidance and coaching combined with your commitment is what will bring you success.

The promotional perks are wonderful and they pay off, especially for feature shows! Anytime I’ve taken advantage of these the results have been phenomenal.

Lastly, I’m not ashamed to tell you I made more money in my first two weeks with LVE Models than I did in a whole year on Only Fans.

Joining LVE Models has been such a positive experience for me. They enabled me to thrive, not just survive the pandemic and strenghten my own brand in the process!

I recommend any exotic dancer to join and grow your network here!”

With special thanks to Nova Ramone at Pink Champagne Entertainment.
