Make money with cam model toys

Make money with cam model toys! Here are our top 5 recommendations of lucrative toys to consider for working online.

Every cam model needs her professional ‘tools of the trade.’

In this wonderful age of tech innovation we are fortunate to have toys which are interactive with cam sites, which serve as next-level tipping tools.

How it works, is, members tip and toys activate. In other words, models enjoy having their vibrations controlled by their paying fans.

In return, fans love watching their favourite models “get off” whilst monetizing their pleasure… so its a win-win!

The majorty of cam sites have responded to this innovation with in-built interfaces to enable their performers to make money with cam model toys.

The most popular and widely used of these such toys, is the Lovense brand.

Lovense toys provide multiple options for both female and male interactive enjoyment.

They work over Bluetooth technology and are integratable via web browser or the smartphone apps Lovense Remote and Lovense Connect.

At LVE Models, we have 100% of our models using Lovense toys. They all find them essential tools for earning the big bucks.

Models who start without such toys soon realise they need one. Once they have purchased and integrated their first Lovense toy into their shows, they make more money instantly!

#1. Lush3

The most popular of the Lovense toys, and an absolute must-have, the Lush3 is a vibrating egg. It is quiet, not too large and most models find it comfortable to wear internally.

It is a breeze to use once you slip it in. The Lush3 enables the hands to be free to do other things whilst fans control the vibrations.

We rate the Lush3 a 5 star toy. All of our models have these and collectively they have made hundreds of thousands of dollars with them! *****

Purchase the Lush3 here

#2. Domi2

We also love the Domi wand. It is extremely powerful and provides mind-blowing results!

It is quiet versus most other wands.

You need to hold it in your hand, however, your fans can take care of the vibrations whilst you make money having fun.

The Domi can be used jointly with other Lovense toys such as the Lush3. This is perfect for multi-toy shows which encourage even greater interaction and tipping.

We rate the Domi2 a 5 star toy. Many of our models say this is their favourite of the Lovense toys due to the fact it’s so powerful provides amazing results. Fans seem to love these too *****

Purchase the Domi2 here.

#3. Sex Machine

Live it up like a virtual sex machine with this contraption that simulates the real life action, better than any other!

The Lovense Sex Machine thrusts at numerous speeds for the perfect tip-based missionary or doggy-style experience.

This toy may be the most pricey of the collection. However, those who are keen to go “all out” in their shows find fans go tip crazy with these.

Return on investment tends to be rapid and the profits are insane.

Given that these are one of the most lucrative sex-simulating devices currently on the market, popular with famous porn stars, we rate the Lovense Sex Machine 5 stars *****

Dare to go “all out” and get one? Damn, girl!

Purchase the Sex Machine here.

#4. Hush2

Dare we say it… bum fun? The Hush is the vibrating butt plug. Not everyone is into that, but if you are, it’s a very smart purchase.

The Hush2 is super quiet and comes in four sizes, XS, S, M and L. You can choose your size dependent on your comfort levels.

Some of our models use the Hush2 and it is always a hit with their fans. Some find their Hush the most lucrative of all the Lovense toys they own.

For this reason and the fact it’s probably the quiestest of the bunch, we rate the Hush2 5 stars *****

Purchase the Hush2 here.

#5. Gravity

Gravity is a fun toy which vibrates and thrusts. A hot favourite, it has a suction pad underneath which can be fixed to a hard, flat surface for riding or doggy-style fun.

Members feel like they are closer to penetrating their favourite models by controlling their Gravity toy.

The Gravity is a superb thrusting alternative to the Sex Machine. It is more afforable, much smaller and easier to pack up and hide away if you have others living in your home.

We rate Gravity 4 stars. It’s a little on the noisy side, but if you’re not bothered about that, the functionality is top notch ****

Purchase the Gravity here.

As well as our top 5 favourites, there are a host of other toys including two-toy deals if you’d like to visit our Lovense store.

We are always happy to provide advise on toys. Toys should be chosen dependent on the comfort levels of the individual. So feel free to hit us up for specific guidance there!

Things to check before going live

Every new cam model needs a list of things to check before going live. Follow my guide and you’ll be ready to kill it on cam!

  • Completed your profile setup? – Add your bio, stats, settings, rates, tip features, profile images and payout info. Start only when all of this is done and approved!
  • Room tidy? – Be well-organised and clutter-free. A nice looking room will make you appear professional and it is pleasing on the eyes to the viewers.
  • Set up for best framing? – Great camera view is important. You want to show off your most flattering angles. Set up your work station and angle the webcam so you can look directly into it. This enables you to connect your audience with eye contact and encourages interaction from them.
  • Clear of any distractions? Make sure any pets in the house are fed and watered. Deal with anything else that might otherwise disturb you if not taken care of. Eliminate any annoying background noise.
  • Music playlists ready? – You’ll need music to help create an atmosphere. Use a speaker if you have one, but do not have the music too loud. Your viewers will want to listen to your voice moreso than your music.
  • Toys out and placed in reach? – Get everything you’ll need for cam shows out and ready. Ensure toys are sanitised and powered up. Vibrating toys need enough charge for the session. Having props within reach will avoid you having to scrabble looking for things.
  • Heels and stockings in reach? – Stiletto shoes, boots or stockings are common requests, have these to hand.
  • Snacks and a drink handy? – Keep a drink and snack beside you. This reduces the inconvenience of having to disrupt stream to pop to the kitchen.
  • Did you do enough reading and research? – You need to brief yourself on how to be a cam model to make a solid start. Read the articles on this blog and be informed. I am here to help!

  • Set up lighting sufficiently? – Room must be well lit with even lighting.
  • Restarted laptop/desktop and run through updates/scans? – Do this to minimise risk of running slow and stream lag issues.
  • If running on ethernet, have you switched off wifi setting on laptop? – You can do this in the network and internet settings. Allow machine to run solely via ethernet cable and not have the wifi interfere with hardwired connection. This is for best continuity of stream.
  • Installed correct browser? – Some cam sites have specific browsers optimised for use with. Check which browser you need as other browsers may not be able to support all of the features of the site you’re working on.
  • Run speed test? – Ideally you’ll have done one prior to signing up and checked minimum upload speed requirements. If it falls short you need to communicate with your site’s tech team. You may also need to speak with your internet provider.
  • Shut down any other browsers, software or applications that might interfere? – When you’re camming, shut everything else unrelated on your laptop down including anything that runs scans in the background. This is so as not to cause unnecessary slowing down of the machine.
  • Selected right camera in broadcast settings? – This is how you present the best quality picture on cam. If the camera you’ve plugged in is not showing in the settings, plug it in again. Refresh your screen, log out and in again, then look again.

  • Right mindframe to work on cam? – You want to be rested, happy, positive, excited and keen to do this! If not, you will resent being online and won’t make money.
  • Feel physically well? – If under the weather with any health or wellbeing issue, wait until you recover. If you do not, you risk starting on a negative spiral and won’t give it your best energy.
  • Wearing something you feel comfortable and sexy in? – Try on different outfits. Go with the one that makes you feel most confident! If you have a favourite lingerie set or something new, this will help you start strong!
  • Done makeup? – Heavy makeup not essential. A little light work on the face to prevent shiny skin and accentuate your best features will make you look and feel confident online.
  • Taken care of personal grooming? – This includes styling your hair, doing your nails, shaving/waxing legs/armpits/ladybits. Lack of attention to these things leads to self-consciousness.
  • What are your camming goals for today? – Self-motivation check! Be sure to have clear in your mind your motives, goals, income target and visions of your success. It is your commitment and consistency to being on cam that will help you achieve all your heart desires!

Beat the New Year camming blues

Beat the New Year camming blues by upstyling your online presence. Start 2024 with a bang with these helpful ideas for profitable camming.

January can be a funny time in the adult entertainment industry. Following the rush through the December party season, cam sites universally can feel quite slow.

Folks reign in their spending whilst paying off their Christmas dues, paving way for the skint ol’ New Year blues.

When you’re on your grind and it feels harder to make money, I totally appreciate this gets frustrating.

During this time it is easy to lose sight of the reasons you choose to be a cam model.

It is also easy faith in the industry, but I promise you it still has the potential to be very fruitful in January.

So up-tempo your mindset and believe in yourself!

Follow my guidelines to beat the New Year camming blues and start the year strong!

New Year, New Me!

I hate to say it as it sounds so cliched… but January brings for the perfect opportunity to reinvent.

We already know members browsing through the pages and pages of chat rooms available are spoiled for choice.

If you’ve rocked with the same style for some time, mix it up. Grab some new outfits in the January sales, have a complete look change.

Change your hair colour or style, evolve your image. This keeps regulars intrigued and checking in.

No matter how loyal regulars say they are, they always notice new models (this is human nature). Keep them on your hook!

Switch up your look and style to offer them the variety they need.

You could, dare I say it, even opt for a complete rebrand with a change of name, look, style and vibe.

Ever fancied being a Mistress, a Princess, a Gamer Chick, a Cosplay Queen or Roleplay specialist? Well now’s the perfect time to learn new skills and try new things!

Reinventing is always refreshing. The quickest way to fall out of love with webcamming is to feel like its got stale, so don’t let it be so.

Upstyle your room

Beat the New Year camming blues by upstyling your chat room.

This does not need to be a full-on interior design project. Some simple changes to make the room look more easy on the eyes will work wonders.

Look at getting some new soft furnishings, for example new coloured cushions or a throw for your bed/chair.

Some improved lighting such as additional ringlighting would make your room bright and appealing. Try some fairy lights, lava lamp or neon strip light because this adds a fun touch.

You could also have a complete change of arrangement. Cam in a different room or move your position in your existing room to offer a different camera view. Just make sure the view is nicely decorated and clutter-free.

Upgrade your shows

With the competition for the tippers being so immense, this is not the time to get stuck in a rut of “same old, same old” with your shows.

Members get bored of repetition, and models get bored of doing the same thing over and over.

To stand out amidst the masses of other models online, read my article here.

For ideas of different shows you can do, read my artcile here.

The beautiful thing about being cam model is the flexibility you have. There are unlimited themes you can offer and unlimited ways to perform to get the tips rolling.

Annabelle’s mega tip: Be your own creative director and promo girl!

Choose a day and time to plan a special themed show.

Advertise this in your chat room and on your cam model social media.

This gives you something fun to plan and it gives your followers something to get revved up for.

I recommend you do this weekly throughout January. This creates a positive new habit and sets a new higher standard.

Even better, do it weekly indefinitely. Benefit from the abundance this creative energy brings!

The end gain is of this exercise is to you keep your fans returning and attract new ones.

As a by product you evolve as a cam model and continue to find your work fulfilling.

Time to switch

If despite trying different things your existing cam site is not working out, let January open the door to other options. There are many platforms out there with different features you can try out.

Check out my article here when researching where to start looking for alternatives.

If you’d like to work with an agency or studio, this can benefit you immensely in terms of guidance, support and motivation. Always check out charging structures versus what agencies offer.

Bear in mind many agencies will charge you commission on top of the network commission. Look for credible model testimonials you can verify to active working models.

Check out these tips by some of our LVE Models!

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?

How to get noticed on cam

Advice for all cam models on how to get noticed on cam.

Speaking as a time-served successful cam model, I know first hand how competitive this industry is.

With thousands of new cam models signing up every week, the industry is over-subscribed and always will be.

This is why for many new models, it is hard to get noticed. The vast majority will never be successful as they do not know what they need to do to stand out in the masses.

The bigger, famous brand name networks have the capacity to display thousands of performers online at any one given moment.

Thousands of models online and granted, thousands of members online, too.

However not all members will make cam models’ time profitable.

Getting noticed by those who have the spending power, is always the challenge amidst the abundance of options they have.

Every cam model must therefore understand they are one of a thousand or more options. These options are camgirls the tipping members will choose who they wish to spend money on, (or not).

I hereby offer my top three tips on how to get noticed on cam (and be that favoured option to make bank)!

You take a look around the site and there are tonnes of gorgeous girls. You’re gorgeous too, but do you stand out? What makes you unique versus the next model?

To make it as a successful cam model you need a strong identity. This can be a style, a vibe, a look, a particular type of show you do better than anyone else.

Put some thought into who YOU are as a performer. What feels best suited to your physical appearance and personality?

Dress in a manner with fabrics and colours you can make your trademark style. Are you rocking it in black lace, latex/fetish, roleplay costume, luxury lingerie, beach babe bikinis, classy cocktail dresses, stripper style neons?

Think about the way you speak, your expressions, the way you move around on cam. Does this feel genuine and easy to keep consistent through your shows?

Emphasize your assets and strengths. Do you have a skill you can show off? Dancing, flexibility, gymnastics, singing, ASMR, story telling. Fetish or domination chat or acts with props, porn star shows such as squirting, deep throat or hardcore. These all popular on cam.

To experience very quickly how to get noticed on cam, make a point of being available, often.

You can’t be a successful cam model by just popping on for an hour here and there. You have to put the time in.

Annabelle

This means working to a schedule so members learn when to expect you, and being consistent. Put in proper sessions, 3-6 hours or more hours at a time.

There are always going to be models with better work ethic, grinding out the hours even when it’s slow.

Guess what? These resilient, persistent girls are the ones who are successful. You’ll find they have mega following and usually make mega payouts.

Be literally in the face of all of the members, reminding them continually that you are there. This is how your presence becomes known and you become established as a cam model.

If you don’t have full time hours available, it is not a problem. You can still become successful as a part-timer.

I became very successful working part time, just 16-20 hours a week on cam. I was consistent every week, working to a schedule.

I put exceptional quality into my presentation and shows, which made an impact and attracted the tipping members.

Annabelle

This strategy worked a treat for me. It works a treat for many of our part time LVE Models, too.

Consistency is key!

So you have a niche, and a schedule. Exellent work!

Those two things alone are not the complete solution.

The next thing you need to do is focus on the quality.

Quality means making every aspect appealing in order to encourage members to spend money.

Pay close attention to and make improvements to your:

Physical appearance – make the outfit, hair, makeup all on point.

Attitude – make this positive, engaging, fun, sexy and personable.

Room – have this well lit, decorated and clutter-free because this is what is most appealing to the eyes to the viewers.

Equipment – make sure your laptop, cam, audio, stream quality is on point. A poor quality or low definition stream never does well versus other models’ streams that are consistent and high definition.

If you need help to improve any technical aspect, speak to your site’s tech support team for advice. Upgrading your internet or equipment is the best investment you can make as a cam model. If you’re unsure of the requirements, read this article.

Effort – approach every stream with good energy and enthusiasm. If the energy output is flat, so will the results be.

Be a cam model with a strong identity, of high quality, who works with consistency!

That’s how to get noticed on cam!

What to do when it’s dead online

Models often ask me for advice on what to do when it’s dead online. Here are some tricks to help your chat room pick up when the site is slow.

We are entering a time of year where cam sites are notoriously slow. Year on year cam sites across the board see a downturn in traffic over the summer months.

Members head on out to enjoy fair weather and light evenings, family gatherings, gradulation parties, summer vacations and school holidays.

I always reassure our models that this is normal and not to take it personally if their regular spenders are around less often.

Many models are demotivated as they struggle to make the same weekly figures they made in March through May.

During these times it’s all about managing expecations learning to be content with lower average hourly rates.

On the big live stream sites, there are thousands of cam models online at any one time, hustling for business.

There are also still hundreds of newbies joining cam sites every week, all with big money aspirations.

For established cam models, these slow times are a frustrating slog with fierce competition from their established peers.

They also have the issue of the new girls up and coming, and guys who normally spend money keen to try out the “fresh pussy.”

Members love choice, as this is what cam sites are all about. All cam models have to get their head around this.

The models who are smart will not let this get them down. Instead, they up their game.

Try new things to encourage greater earning potential and attract new spenders.

For the new models, summer can be a tough time to join. They might be just one slow chat room amongst thousands of others. Cam sites are a numbers game.

Such models need to focus on building their following in the early days. I understand the need to make enough money to maintain motivation, but there is no overnight success in cam modelling.

Many join sites expecting it to be instant easy money, but in reality its not like that. The rewards of patience and persistence online may not be realised until 6, 12 or even 18 months down the line.

As an experienced cam model I know first hand how demotivating it can feel when there’s not much going on. I’ve had online hours SO tedious that I’d rather stick pins in my eyes than be stuck talking to a bunch of zombies who don’t respond.

Now this is an important bit of field research here: I noticed that the more fed up I felt and the flatter my energy levels became, the slower my room got.

As difficult as it is to stay enthusiastic when it’s dead online, the absolute last thing a cam model should do is let her energy slump.

Looking bored, irritated, scrolling through the phone, sitting/laying in a lazy manner will do nothing more than encourage viewers to mirror the same energy.

As a result, they leave the room or become more complacent and less inclined to interact.

Energy attracts energy of the same frequency, so up-tempo your vibe and kick-start your viewers into action!

Annabelle

Be aware of this and keep it positive and approachable. Switch up the body positions from sitting to laying, move around in the camera view to display movement and stay energised.

Keep the facial expressions interested, smile and be sexy. All of this gives the illusion the room is busy even when its quiet. It also encourages anybody popping in for a look to stick around rather than click out uninspired, a few seconds later.

So nobody’s talking back, who cares! Chat anyway! Learning to be comfortable with talking to oneself is a really valuable skill to learn as a camgirl.

Chat about anything. What you did at the weekend, what music you’re listning to, how much you love your new sex toy. Any topic that’s engaging and fun for the viewers is good for keeping their attention.

You can even make stuff up for jaw-dropping effect or comedy if your mind works in cheeky ways! Nobody will know whether it’s your real life or not.

Do something fun or crazy to grab members’ attention and make them feel more inclined to interact. Here are some ideas:

  1. Melt ice on your butt/cleavage, talk about how warm it is and ask if they’d love to see a naughty show with ice.
  2. Do a squats workout, ass to camera, in some hot pants or yoga pants. This sets pulses races!
  3. Eat a banana seductively, or some strawberries or grapes. Ask your audience if they’re into food play.
  4. Rub your feet over a dildo and talk about how much you love foot massages.
  5. Show your sex toys and talk about them, share some experiences.
  6. Rub oil/lotion on your body. You don’t need to strip. Wear a bikini to spark their imagination.
  7. Do a hot fashion show, trying on different outfits and asking for their feedback.
  8. Do sexy stretching, splits, headstands or anything else athletic if you’re a fit girl.
  9. Do something articstic like drawing if this is your thing, or play a card trick/game.
  10. Do some preening – curl your hair, paint your nails, do a pedi etc.

Whatever happens, keep that sparkle as this makes potential tippers warm up, rather than go cold and leave.

Personality is what usually wins fans over on cam sites. Make you cam persona appealing and maintain a consistent good attitude no matter how slow or busy.

A cam model with a persona that sparkles always stands out versus those who do not know how to be personable or engaging.

Annabelle

Please, go ahead and try out my tricks! You may not set the world alight in every session, but some improvement is better than none when it’s slow.

I would love to hear if my advice helps your chat room pick up. Please let me know in the comments!

Lastly… Always remember to adjust and manage your expectations during the slow times.

First day on cam

It’s your first day on cam and you’re feeling nervous. Allow me to offer some guidance to help you make ‘taking the plunge’ feel less daunting!

At LVE Models we coach new models every week. Many of the models joining us have webcammed before, however some have not.

Feeling nervous when faced with the prospect of going on cam for the first time is totally normal.

The vast majority who come to us suffer first day nerves to some degree, whether they have cammed before or not.

Everyone was once a newbie facing the task for their first time, so you are not alone!

The reason for ‘first day on cam’ nerves is this: feeling nervous is the body’s natural reaction to the unknown.

In most cases, this fear is mostly due to not being prepared. Things that are straightforward to do and learn can seem overwhelming if information not available.

How to set up a profile, how to go online, what to look for and how to engage an audience… These are basic training requirements that should be covered prior to going online.

Unfamiliar territory can bring a host of anxieties based on fears over things that have not yet happened (and may not happen).

If you’re thinking these thoughts, don’t worry, it’s perfectly rational and you are not alone!

This is why a support network is essential.

Most cam site interfaces are not as complicated as they might look on a first glance. Take some time to click through each screen, read and understand. If it’s a good site, it will be user-friendly.

There will always be training information available, whether this is via a link or another type of online document. If it is not supplied on registration, ask the site admin or agency you signed up with.

If anything is not clear within the performer account, there will be an admin team, either at the site’s head office or through an agency or studio you registered with.

Ask, ask and ask questions! Nobody minds! These people are there to help you get familiar with how to operate your login features and navigate your profile.

Observe how the site works from a member’s perspective to see what they see when visiting cam models.

Look at how models are displayed. Check this both on the home page and when viewing individual profiles.

Take note of where to find key features such as tip menus and games. Identify where a member would go to take a model into a private show and how they would private message a model.

If you do all of this, you will know where and what to direct members to do when they visit your profile.

Some members, just like you, will be brand new so take a proactive approach in understanding your own site.

This will help them to spend their money – which is precisely what you’re there for.

To assist you getting through your first day on cam, seek to connect with other cam models on your site.

Group chats, forums and social media neworking groups are universal things on most cam sites. Ask the site admin or your agency how you can join these.

These groups are where you’ll find like-minded models who, like you, were once brand new and nervous.

Connecting with other models who have been through the same motions is invaluable.

You can draw on their experience, share your worries and have your mind put at ease.

Annabelle

We have a community here at LVE Models where models, both new and experienced alike, are joined together via a WhatsApp chat.

They swap ideas and experiences, offer motivation to one another and look out for the newbies.

I know in some cases, having this chat group has been the difference between certain individuals dropping away and going on the be successful models who make four figure weekly payouts.

There is no point in going online if you’re highly strung. You’ll be in a weird vibe and as such, struggle to get people spending.

To draw people in to part with their cash you’ll need them to feel relaxed and comfortable in your presence.

This starts by making yourself comfortable in the hours and minutes before you go live.

Whether it’s a workout, taking a bath, breathing exercises or pouring a glass of wine; do what you need to do on your first day on cam.

Steadying the nerves can be done in various ways and we are all different in that sense. Choose whatever makes you feel chilled.

If you need to take your time getting ready and thinking about how to approach your first cam show (over a glass of wine), do so!

You can always watch some other cam models for ideas and inspiration, whilst getting ready.

Once the preparation is done and you feel ready, take some slow deep breaths and go for it!

Be bold, commit yourself to the time you’ve set aside to cam, and persist.

There is nothing to lose and a wealth of potential to gain.

Your new opportunity brings a new path, a new money source, a new following and new doors opening. This is all very exciting!

Remember what motivated you to start in the first place and hold this thought.

You’ll get through initial nerves if you focus on the reasons you’re there.

It’s your mission to accomplish and you are accountable for your own success (with a little support and guidance)!

Once you’ve got your first day on cam out of the way, you’re already one day experienced! This means you’re one day more knowledgable than you were prior to starting!

Each day thereafter continues the learning curve on your journey into webcamming.

Over time, your understanding grows as does your confidence.

How to manage slow days

Learn how to manage the slow days on cam in order to stay disciplined, motivated and focussed on your goals.

All cam models, whatever their level of experience, may find some days online seem more arduous than others.

Live stream cam sites can vary dramatically in volumes and patterns of traffic and every site has its typical peak and off peak hours. With models working in different timezones, not all are able to be online during the peak hours. Because of this, they may feel the site is ‘slow.’

The key to staying resilient and pushing through this is learning how to manage slow days.

I will say that despite the peak and off peak patterns, any site with high traffic (which is most of the live stream sites) will have thousands of users online 24/7. For this reason there is always the potential to make money no matter what time you log on.

For maximal potential to make money no matter what time you’re online, the power is entirely in your hands. Here’s what you need to do:

Members will feed of your energy. Bear in mind if there are people in your room who are not bringing value, they will often be reciprocating your energy.

Always remember that energy attracts the same type of energy.

Annabelle

First and foremost: create a spectacular vibe. Put out good energy this will make people warm up and feel more inclined to bring value to your day. You can start by creating a pleasant atmosphere with background music.

Dance and shake your butt, movement helps prevent the atmosphere feeling flat.

Keep body language and body positions open and receptive. Smile and be appreciative of your viewers’ presence.

If you find viewers are not talking back, work harder to get them being interactive. Up your game with the chat.

Try to directly engage them by usernames and break the ice with small talk. Ask how their day is, where they’re from.

You’ll need to master the art of chatting to yourself. Get busy doing your nails or taking selfies to upload to your followers on social media with a shoutout that you’re online. Talk through what you’re doing.

Chat about your tipping options, on-sale media, Snapchat subscriptions and anything else you can promote.

Chit chat as though you’re talking to an imaginary friend. Nobody knows who you’re talking to, and this trick is often a game-changer as it keeps you appearing occupied!

Annabelle

The psychology behind this is: you’re actively engaging a person (be it a real person or not) and this makes others want your attention. They will want to be a part of your session if they see you’re interesting and fun to chat with.

Don’t let potential tippers step into your room and see staring down at your phone or looking fed up. They will find this boring, and leave.

Make your chat patter a regular habit and all of a sudden one or more people start to interact back, and interaction leads to tipping and private shows.

The onus is on you to be positive and don’t let the traffic lulls be a problem for you. Always be of the mindset that slow times won’t last providing you work hard to make your room busier.

Be constantly mindful of your vibe and think how you can up your game. Work hard to be the stand-out model online.

Stay optimistic with a good attitude, every hour will bring different members logging on. One slow hour does not mean the next one has to be.

Never lose site of your goals, even when it feels like you’re flogging a dead horse online.

Remind yourself you’re there to work and you will get the very best out of your sessions providing you bring good energy, work hard to be interactive and display positivity.

Do affirmations, write your goals down, DO IT ANYWAY! The best way to self-discipline, self-motivate and stay focussed is by giving your cam session a purpose.

Your goals are your reason to stay online and complete your scheduled hours. They are your motivation to keep your hustle game strong.

You never know who is about to step into your chat room and love your amazing vibe. He could be your next big tipper or long term regular!

If you slip into a negative vibe or log off, he will never get the chance to connect with you.

Annabelle

Sometimes a break is all that’s needed. If you’ve been online a couple of hours and find your efforts seem in vain, take a break.

Go for a walk, do a workout, meditate, listen to music, read a book, bake a cake, do some visualisations and goal setting. Do whatever makes you feel energised and positive.

When you log back on you will feel fresh again and it will likely be a whole different crowd. Tell them what you’ve been up to just now, ask them how their day is going. Notice the shift in energy and be appreciative for their receptiveness.

If after trying all of the above it is still stagnant in your chat room, give yourself complete overhaul. Try something new with a change in shows, tipping options, outfit or personal styling.

If you have cam model friends, bounce ideas off them. If you have a mentor or coach, as them for guidance. A good coach will assist you with ways you can encourage greater interaction and tipping.

It can often be of benefit switching up the hours. Going online at a different time to your usual time means you can meet a whole different crowd. You can gain new followers and expand your presence online.

As CAM MODEL MENTOR I am hands-on with our LVE Models. Active in their chat rooms, assisting and directing when needed.

Also being experienced cam model who learned first hand how to manage slow days, I have all the tips and tricks to pass on.

This is empowering for me and it is empowering for them to learn that my methods work for them too.

Their slow days become fewer and farther between. More frequent are the days they are busy, killing it on cam.

Secrets of self-motivation

What are the secrets of self-motivation? We all have days where we’re ‘not feeling it,’ but persistent lack of self-motivation means lack of earning potential. Here’s how to tackle this problem.

It is the ability to fulfil a motive. It is the drive to do something based on the benefits it will bring.

Self-motivation is telling yourself, “no matter how I feel, I have a mission and I am going to do it anyway!”

In order for self-discipline to be motivational and engineer the desired results, it must be supported by regular reminders. These reminders are reasons why you must do it anyway.

Getting ready and logging online sounds like an easy thing to do. In principle it is, however one of the biggest barriers to success is where lack of self-motivation results in not showing up.

Annabelle

During my time in the industry I have discovered many factors that cause this problem and unravelled the secrets of self-motivation. This awareness has led me to identify ways to help de-motivated individuals. Making sense of how they feel and understanding why they’re stumbling is the first step.

I have mastered techniques designed to renew the sense of self-motivation. If done correctly and with care, these empower individuals to march strongly onward and reach their goals.

First I want to talk about some of the common causes of lack of self-motivation in cam models.

Lack of self-motivation is a negative and unproductive state to be in. It often stems from self-limiting thoughts or beliefs.

These are thoughts and beliefs lacking the positivity and confidence required for a person to achieve.

Thoughts and beliefs starting with “I can’t,” “I’m not,” “I won’t” for example, are prime culprits.

Where there is lack of willing or faith fuelled by negative thoughts; individuals will often opt out (elective failure).

There can be a whole catalogue of factors that trigger self-limiting thoughts and beliefs. Phyisical, psychological and emotional barriers are the main sources.

For example, there might be inconsistent moods due to hormonal ups and downs, personal or relationship problems. There could be tiredness of feeling physically out of sorts. Underlying mental welfare issue such as anxiety or low self esteem are common denominators.

There could have been a few poor sessions on cam, or a bad experience with online trolling.

We are all human beings and it’s normal to have ‘off’ days. We should never feel bad for taking time out when we need to rest.

Self care is crucial, but staying focussed on our goals is one of the secrets of self-motivation.

Annabelle

While mindful of creating a healthy work/life balance, money moves can only happen if the effort is not put in.

Hold this thought at the forefront if success is desired and know you have the power to push through the difficult times. This is essential to growth.

Often this simply involves giving ourselves a shake, dressing up and showing up. Be that badass cam model queen who achieves her goals no matter what!  

I believe it is important to have a support network and/or a mentor when camming because sometimes all that’s needed is a little friendly support or encouragement.

Take inspiration from those who know how to push through the tough times. These are the models you see grinding out their sessions online, making bank week after week.

For sure they get their ups and downs, but have mastered the ability to stay self-disciplined and motivated.

Annabelle

If I lost £1 for every time I felt like flaking out, even with a fleeting thought… Damn! I would not have reached my goals thus far and not be in the comfortable position I am in today. 

That symbol of £1 lost for every time is in reality worth a far greater loss because every working day on cam had far greater value than £1 to me.

It translates to thousands of pounds of lost income over time if every off day was a day I chose not to commit to my goal.

There are numerous times I have worked on cam with PMT. Others I have worked feeling low after bad news. Endless occasions I have worked on cam with sleep deprivation, but the show has gone on.

Nothing would stop me putting on my Cam Queen hat and working to my schedule. Only exceptions being in cases I genuinely was too sick to work, or my child was sick.

My secrets of self-motivation include my unfaltering determination to be successful.

Never satisfied with not hitting my income targets or reaching personal goals, knowing these are things I have complete control of.

Annabelle

No matter what, the show must go on!

DO IT ANYWAY is a a Boss mindset. Filled with purpose, determination, resilience and prosperity!

DO IT ANYWAY sees me smile and give myself a pat on the back! It is a sense of pride and accomplishment on completion of goals!

DO IT ANYWAY continually asserts me as a professional and a role model!

DO IT ANYWAY is uplifting, empowering and feels incredible!

Adopt DO IT ANYWAY is one of my secrets of self-motivation! The steps below open the door to life-changing results!

1. RELAX TO PREPARE

Take 30-60 minutes for relaxation and rejuvenation of the body and mind. I recommend a walk in a natural setting or an energising exercise session.

Go for a massage, do meditation or listen to music or motivational podcasts. These are superb ways to unwind. This ie because they open the positive mindset channels in preparation for successful working.

2. SET MOTIVES AND GOALS

Spend five minutes visualising all of the things you want to achieve (goals) and necessities you need to cover (costs of living etc) as a result of working on cam. Do this because these are your key motives to work and you should remind yourself of them continually.

Without goals, there is no ambition and as a result, no purpose to work. Set some if you have not already, add quantifiable measures along with timescales. I share more about how to do this in a few moments as you read on.

Goals and motives are one of the primary secrets of self-motivation as without these, there is not much point in doing anything… at all.

3. THINK ‘FAILURE NO OPTION’

Nobody likes the word failure. Consider the things you would miss out on if you were to give way to self-defeat and not work. Giving in to self-defeat is the worst type of failure, as it is elective failure.

Think about details, pictures and emotions along with what the loss represents in monetary terms because this serves as a kick up the butt to get going.

Not being able to afford that holiday with the girls next summer, having that loan forever hanging over your head, not being able to get that new car… These such thoughts make me sad and more determined not to let this happen!

Do you see how focussing on doing anything but failing is such a powerful secret to self-motivation?

4. FOCUS ON SATISFACTION

Along with the physical losses that happen as a result of lack of self-motivation, I need to tell you that the subsquent regret is not a nice feeling to experience. This can often be the culprit for the forming of negative, self-defeatist habits where lack of self-motivation is the default setting.

Be mindful of the implications of regret but focus on the opposite feeling – satisfaction. This encourages a positive sense of self-worth. Linger on on the satisfaction you will experience on the achievement of your success and become emotionally involved with that feeling!

It is easy to see wht focussing on the feelings of satisfaction are one of my secrets of self-motivation.

5. CLARIFY & REASSERT MOTIVES

You have your goals and motives… Clarification and reassertion of these will continue to set the intention of the purpose and the positives therein you will gain.

Whilst getting ready to go online, think exciting empowering thoughts about your goals which reinforce why you need to dress up, show up and get the job done in order to reach those goals.

This constant reminder makes your camming mission 100 times more meaningful and helps with setting a schedule in order to fulfil the required hours online.

Your purpose is the choice you make to see it through with a strong motive which leads to the end gain.

Clarify and reassert the purpose by way of affirmative mission statements in order to self-program and place yourself firmly in that driving seat.

6. CREATE MISSION STATEMENTS

Set out exactly what you want to achieve in specific, quantifiable measure. Include these five elements:

  • TASK – webcamming.
  • PURPOSE – why you’re doing it along with the target earnings you require.
  • TIME – number of hours you are going to persist for.
  • OBJECTIVE – the ultimate goal that needs to be met.
  • EMOTION – the pleasant outcome in terms of the feelings that compeltion of the mission will bring.

Form a strong, affirmative, motivational mission statement including the above elements. Make this affirmative (affirmative = “I will”) and filled with enthusiasm, as a result this elevates the positivity and unleashes this powerful secret of self-motivation.

Here are two examples to guide you.

1. “Today I will work on cam and make the money I need for my holiday (PURPOSE). I shall persist online until I have reached my target earnings, this will be for a minimum of 5 hours (TIME) in order to pay the sum of £xxxx I need for the flights (OBJECTIVE). Knowing I can book my flights thanks to my work ethic, will make me feel on top of the world!” (EMOTION).

2. “This day is devoted to working on cam (TASK) and I do this as I am a professional (PURPOSE). I will work for 8 hours (TIME) and make £xxxx to pay off the rest of my loan (OBJECTIVE). Finally I shall be debt free and celebrate this weekend! This is the greatest sense of freedom and happiness I have ever experienced!” (EMOTION).

Can you feel the enthusiasm in these mission statements? They’re specific, quantifiable, with a positive emotional attachment. Do you know understand why mission statements are one of my secrets of self-motivation?

You do?

Now go ahead and have fun creating your own, clearly define your goal(s) and WRITE IT/THEM DOWN!

7. REPETITION

… Now REPEAT your mission statement ten times.

The act of repetition is one of my secrets of self-motivation. It is a key part of mental programming because not only does this make create a prolific thought in the conscious mind, it also helps that thought become ingrained into the subconscious mind.

Our conscious mind is the mental compartment for thoughts we can control. We can choose what we think about by switching and replacing one dominant through with another.

That elusive subconscious mind is the trickier part of the mind to convince. It is the part of the mind that controls the feelings, actions and behaviours of an individual, i.e. the subconscious habits.

Thoughts provoked by subconscious habits are difficult to control because the average person does not know how to control or change them. Most people are not even aware it is possible to do so. It takes training.

Subconscious mind reprogramming is an in-depth subject I go into, for instance with one to one mentoring training if this is required.

Make daily self-motivation with mission statements and repetition a positive habit. You will be on your way to striking gold, armed with effective self-motivation techniques!

I am rooting for you and all the unlimited potential you will unlock as a self-motivated, goal-orientated cam model!

Annabelle

I hope you find this article helpful, I have only scratched the surface of my secrets of self-motivation. There are layers of issues that cause lack of motivation because this is often a complex issue.

Where there is a persistent lack which results in the inability to work on a frequent basis, with or without low moods or feelings of indifference, I advise to very carefully about whether camming is the right avenue.

I am a great believer of if something doesn’t feel right or there are too many off days, it is just not going to work out.
