Monetize your Snapchat

Cam models, get creative with these smart ways to monetize your Snapchat and increase revenue from fans.

Do you use Snapchat? If not, here’s why you should get on it…

  • Snapchat is a social media networking app, available for desktop and mobile.
  • Free to download and packed full of fun features.
  • Flexible options including text messaging, photo and video “snap” messaging, video calling and phone calling.
  • Snapchat is discrete. Messages between users are private and delivered in real time.
  • Privacy features: You can see if the other person screenshots or saves. This helps you to monitor their behaviour.
  • Chat history auto-deletes after 24 hours. This removes all chat which has not been saved.
  • Snapchat keeps your phone number and personal information private.
  • You can make your Snapchat undiscoverable to those on your personal contact list.

  1. Create a username which supports your cam/creator name (not your real name). It takes around 5 minutes, via Snapchat.com or Snapchat on the App store.
  2. Have a play around with making photo and video snaps, and exploring the fun filters so you know what to do once you get your first Snapchatters on board.
  3. Sell your Snapchat for a reasonable subscription cost. Promote this on your cam site (if permitted), along with your content pages and social media.
  4. Once you have some followers, make photo or video snaps. They view these on their snap feeds to stay connected with you.
  5. Post daily, if you can. You can show off your look, personality and update fans what you’re up to in chat clips.
  6. Give them hot teases to keep them interested, and bring them to you for interaction – which you then monetize.
  7. Provide calls to action. Custom content deals, instructions to visit you on cam, information on your availability to “play” on Snapchat. Let fans know what their options are and how to request/book.
  8. Post the links they’ll use to pay, or visit you online.

One of the amazing things about Snapchat is you can offer a variety of subscription options.

Make it clear what you include with the subscription. You have messenger chatting and sext (sex texting), photo/video Snap swaps, GFE packages (Girl Friend Experience), video calls, phone calls and custom content.

Alternatively, you can offer your Snapchat subscription-free.

You would monetize it by promoting offers for any of the above benefits, to your captive audience.

Suggested subscription pricing:

  • One week £5 (or equivalent in tokens)
  • One month £15
  • One year £65
  • Lifetime £100

Monetize your Snapchat with one to one video calls. These are private and done over Wifi or 4G data.

Offer a time package such as 15 minutes or 30 minutes, with a one-off payment.

Let your Snapchatters know what they can do with you on a video call.

Ideas include masturbation, toy play, blowjob, femdom, roleplay, fetish, and shower or bath shows.

How about enjoy deep and meaningful conversations with your favourite supportive regulars?

Once show is agreed, have them tip prior to starting. This way you are assured of the money and they don’t benefit from your time for free.

Snapchat video calls are usually cam to cam, which means you both can see each other.

If your Snapchatter disables their video so you can only hear but not see them, this is because they wish to guard their privacy.

This should not bother you, however discuss preferences first, so there are no misunderstandings.

For video calls to be successful, everyone needs to be comfortable.

Suggested video call pricing:

  • 15 minutes £20 (or equivalent in tokens)
  • 30 minutes £50
  • 60 minutes £75
  • One week GFE including messaging with a daily call £400-£500

Monetize your Snapchat with audio (phone) calls. These work really well. Offer packages for time.

Shout out your phone call offers on your snap feed. Do this as a photo snap with text over the top (don’t forget to include how to pay).

Alternatively, do a video snap talking to your followers, hyping it up with a call to action!

As with video calls, there is so much scope for creativity. I have personally used this feature a lot through my years of camming. It is a favourite!

Suggested phone call pricing:

  • 10 mins call £15
  • 20 mins call £25
  • 30 mins call £40
  • 60 mins call £65

Monetize your Snapchat with sext packages, these are so fun!

You can sext via the messenger-style text chat feature or by sending video snaps, pic snaps or voice notes.

Offer sext on a daily, weekly or monthly rate. Also offer short time period sext sessions such as 15, 30 or 60 minutes.

Make it clear how much time they get, along with frequency and method of messaging.

Suggested Snapchat sexting pricing:

  • Daily sext £45
  • Weekly sext £250
  • Monthly sext £600
  • 15 mins sext £15
  • 30 mins sext £35
  • 60 mins sext £50

  • Create a banner or flyer using a photo editing app.
  • Choose your best photo to add your offers in text over the top. Include your subscription deal, video call, phone sex and sext options.
  • Post on your social media and add your pay methods.
  • Instruct fans how and where to tip for the package they would like.
  • Let them know to provide their Snapchat username with their payment.
  • Add custom tip amounts for your Snapchat packages to your cam site (usually you can do this in a tipping menu or bio).
  • Once fans monetize your Snapchat, be responsive and interact with them right away.
  • Make sure you honour what they purchase and deliver amazing service – if you want them to monetize regularly.

Here are my guidelines to monetize Snapchat on a continual and controlled basis:

  1. Respond to fans in a positive manner, but don’t be a pushover!
  2. Be aware of the individuals who regularly reward your time. Show these guys you appreciate them with extra attentiveness.
  3. Be aware of those who do not respect your time, once on your Snapchat. You can always remove them.
  4. Remind monetized fans to tip again for future engagements. Do this by posting your pricing at least twice per week.
  5. Run flash sales, for example pairing up options at a reduced rate (or offer a freebie). Consider deals like custom video + free 20 min phone call package; 15 min video call + 30 mins sexting; free 15 min sexting with every subscription renewal. Deals often trigger action from fans.
  6. If any fan creeps regularly into your DMs without monetizing your time, you can delete them.

Now you are armed with all the basics you’ll need to monetize your Snapchat, go ahead and make that dough!

SPOTLIGHT

Gain 100k followers in 6 months

Top cam model and content creator Honey Martinez explains how to gain 100k followers in 6 months.

Being successful is all about building your following and posting all the time.

Exotic performer and creator Honey, who goes by the names of Honey Martinezzz and Honeythemilf, began camming and content creating in 2016.

Honey, from Vancouver Canada, is renowned for her eye-popping curves and adult natured content.

Featuring on many well-known platforms she tempts her fans with videos, live chat and subscription-based offerings.

As an interactive model Honey performs solo and group shows.

She is responsive to the demands of fans for boy-girl and girl-girl videos. These fly on her promotional campaigns which include direct messaging across multiple platforms as well as social media.

Despite previously having had her socials hacked, scammed and wiped out; the follower-hungry Canadian came back with a vengeance.

With her smart self-promotion strategy, the model gained a staggering 100k followers in 6 months.

So Honey, tell us exactly how you did it?

X – formally Twitter, is one of the leading platforms for adult creators. There are no restrictions on nature of content and it is easy for sharing and tagging for maximum exposure.

Honey understands what does well on social media and pays attention to detail. By ensuring she puts out nothing but high quality, high definition photos and clips on X, this ensures maximum ‘like’ and retweet potential by fans and promotors.

Tagging large promo accounts helps achieve vast reach on the platform, because of the “RT for RT” etiquette on X.

Promo accounts and creators retweet posts of other creators and the end result is one big cross promotional campaign

All this additional exposure entices more fans to Honey’s profile, and guess what? They all click the follow button!

Promo accounts specific to adult creators have tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands of followers. For anybody trying to build a presence on social media in that specific industry, these are useful guys to have on board.

As with anything you wish to be successful in, to stay on the grind is to keep momentum on track.

Honey tells me it is not always easy to consistent, for example during times of sickness or vacation.

The biggest challenge is taking time out from social media.

The penalty is loss of motivation and the necessity of extra time investing in building back up.

Honey Martinez

The Canadian star explains that it is worth it when you discover the valuable fans amongst the masses who just follow to creep on the free content.

There may be potential to monetize genuine fans, but there is a dark side to gaining a massive social media following.

The continual threat of fraudsters out to make a quick buck is a problem that will never go away.

As well as the possibility of financial loss, the integrity and reputation of a well-established model or influencer is at stake.

In 2023, Honey was victim of a textbook catfish scam. She was duped by a follower who claimed to have experience in helping creators build their profiles.

They contacted her through X to offer help to increase her revenue potential. All the while, stealing her content and pocketing profits under a fake profile.

What exactly happened in this case is this: content and video calls were promoted on the fake Honey Martinez profile with payment links to the scammer.

They even hacked into Honey’s legitimate profile, changing her password which made it impossible for her to access it to warn fans about what was going on.

Most models and creators would love to gain 100k in 6 months, just like Honey Martinezzz. We know that engaging fans on socials can boost revenue.

We also know mass exposure attracts the of shady behaviour of catfishers and other scammers.

So if you want to start you own campaign to gain 100k followers in 6 months… protect yourself:

  • Watermark all content with your logo, username and/or the name of the site which hosts the content. This way, if it gets stolen, you can prove where it originated from for any copyright claims.
  • Do not respond to randoms who claim they will help you build your following or monetize content. In every case these approaches are scams.
  • It is best not to follow back everyone who follows, as this enables them easy access to message and be a nuisance.
  • Do not open any links that followers attempt to send you via tweet or DM.
  • Consider making social media private, and request to follow. While it is less easy to gain mass following this way, it does tighten privacy and security.
  • Consider working with a content protection agency to remove any stolen content and impersonation accounts. We recommend Cam Model Protection.

Get subscribers to your fans page

Are you a creator stuggling to get subscribers to your fans page? It’s time to join the platform that brings the fans to you!

Do you spend hours every week making content, uploading to your page and promoting on social media? If yes, read on…

From experience, I know creating content and building a fans page can take a lot of time out of your day.

Once you have it all made, it looks amazing!

You’re proud of it and want to show it off. People may look, but do they commit? You need to get subscribers.

Sure, you can try shouting about it on Instagram, X, TikTok and other social media channels.

That’s great!… If you have 1M followers on those platforms.

Even at that level, it is a numbers game. Followers can be flaky, even invisible.

The vast majority of social media followers are not willing or able to pay to see content. Many are not even genuine accounts.

Annabelle

Out of those social followers who are genuine and understand what its all about, some will join for a snoop.

They’ll sub’ one time for a month to see what’s on offer, then don’t bother to renew.

Winning fans’ pledges for monthly subs is the arduous part of building a successful fans page.

Without getting monthly commitment, it barely seems worth the hassle. You end up feeling undervalued for your time and effort.

Many models attempt to get subscribers to their fans page by offering it subscription free. They will put a certain amount as free to view and the “good” stuff behind paywalls.

That is a smart strategy, providing fans are good quality and have the funds (or the desire) to pay to unlock the good stuff. And when they join for free, then don’t spend, this only advances the headache.

If this scenario sounds tediously familiar, you are in the same boat as the vast majority who have the same dream as you.

That dream is, to make thousands of pounds selling content on a subcription-based fans page.

Annabelle

How creator sites work

If you’re one who’s already dived in thinking it’s easy making money from a fans page, I’m sorry you have learnt the hard way.

You will have been told to promote, promote, promote on social media. This is because generally, creator sites have no traffic of their own, therefore are unable to send subscribers to your fans page.

Creator sites provide the framework on which creators host their fan pages. They’re packed with all sorts of neat features which creators can use as tools for selling content.

How they make their money, is they drive creators to bring them the fans. They ean their commission for the privilege of creators bringing the business to them.

These sites ultimately rely on influencers and celebrities to fund a vast percentage of fans payments to their site. Big name creators advertise their fans pages which raises greater awareness of the brand.

As a result the creator sites gain member signups along with more creators, who then bring them more member signups and attract more creators. It is a very clever business model.

Unfortunately, those members signups brought in by influencer creators do not benefit the unknown creator who starts at the bottom.

Newbies have have to build their presence by finding their own fans.

It can take years to get to “influencer” level and still, most will never make it. Usually this involves a lucky break.

The bottom line is… if you are not an influencer or celebrity, getting interest for your fans page is a hard hustle. Many individuals soon realise this, and give up.

Now I can see you shrugging your shoulders with a “been there, done it, bought the T-shirt” type sigh.

So it gives me great please to say… “Wait! There is a way!”

You can build a successful fans page and you can find fans willing to pay.

Forget about wasting more time making those cliched “link in bio” posts (yawn) on social media, (the ones very few bother to click are they’re too busy scrolling).

How to get subscribers to your fans page

Join the platfrom that brings the fans to you!

Being a successful creator is not just about creating high quality content. It is about being a great salesperson too.

We know that face-to-face marketing works, as people buy from people.

Annabelle

Do these things:

  1. Join the right platforn (I’ll help you with this at the end of this article).
  2. Position yourself in a live chat scenario and meet your subscribers face to face, online. This way, you directly engage them.
  3. Chat, let them get to know the face behind the photos. Be personable and charm them.
  4. Unleash your powers of persuasion by upselling your fans page – simply, talk about what’s on offer there.
  5. Offer them a joining gift or incentive such as an introductory discount. Alternatively, offer a free personalised photoset or short welcome tease video.
  6. Offer their incentive on-the-spot (like a flash sale) if they instantly subscribe.
  7. Once they’re in your page, do your great customer service. Message them on the day they join to connect in chat and arrange their welcome gift.

Why this works

When you meet your potential subscribers face to face on a chat-based platform, the numbers game has greater odds.

This is because the fans you chat with are registered network members, with billing in place.

These are not the same social media ghosts who lurk on Instagram and never like or comment, let alone click that link in the bio.

These network members already spend money. They engage in live chat, tip models and do private shows (which you too can benefit from). They buy media content and customs.

All you need to do once you’ve got their attention is point out the “click to buy” button in your chat room.

They do not need a seperate signup.

Just one click and they are on your fans page.

Another click and they’ve subscribed.

Piece of cake!

Ongoing commitment

Once you have your fans, you need to work smart to keep them on board. This is very important, otherwise they may get complacent.

Annabelle

Do these things:

  1. Add a piece of high quality, high definition content daily, or as a minimum five days per week. This can be an HD video, a photoset (make sure the lighting is great), some POV snaps (make sure these are clear definition), or an audio message, for example.
  2. Message with your subscribed fans often to keep them engaged and returning to your page every day, hungry to see more of you.
  3. Offer them custom content packages on photosets, videos and audio content. This way you will build a strong and personal relationship with your fans.
  4. If they drop away, offer them a rejoining incentive with a % discount to win back their business.

Also, I want to tell you that on this platform, you get 80% payout of everything your fans spend on the content you create for your fans page!

Annabelle

Finally you have a platform that brings the fans to you!

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?

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.

Show ideas for new cam models

Models brand new to the adult cams industry often get stuck with what to do on cam. Here are some some helpful show ideas for new cam models.

If it’s your first day or week on cam and you’re experiencing the natural newbie nerves, please first read this article to prepare yourself for getting started.

You will need to spend the early days online becoming familiar with how the site works.

It is very important to learn how to engage with your viewers so they interact back. This is how you generate income opportunities from them.

My article on creating engagement is here.

The next thing to master is how to think creatively on your show ideas, because this is how you convert viewers into fans and keep them coming back.

There are thousands of cam models online on major sites, as such, the competition is fierce. It can be very tough to make it and it is always the stand-out models who thrive.

The models who continually mix up their show types and themes do well versus others that do the same shows week on week.

Don’t let this put you off though! It sounds like a lot to get the head around but I am here to help so you can hit the ground running.

Here are some show ideas for new cam models.

Fantasy telling

Spoil your audience with a themed show where you tell them your sexy fantasies. These can be based on real experiences or make believe, by using your imagination.

If you struggle for ideas, you can always get some inspiration by reading erotic stories and using these to inspire the fantasies.

Erotic stories

To follow on from the fantasy telling idea, try reading stories out to a live audience from an erotic short stories book.

There are hundreds of books available on Amazon or web-based short smutty stories by self-published authors on Medium.

Dirty talk

Polish up your naughty chit chat and sizzle in a show where you turn up the heat with sexy lingo!

Describe your favourite sex positions, how you like to be pleasured or how you like to pleasure a man (or another woman).

With dirty talk, the more detail you can give to the recipient, the more mindblowing the results!

Annabelle

Google search ‘kinks and fetishes’ to add some new words to the sex vocabulary. You will also stumble upon further inspiration for show themes.

Roleplays

How does the sound of getting into character suit you? With roleplays you can be anyone you want to be! Imagination here is key.

Some popular roleplays are doctor/nurse with patient, teacher/student, stepmum/stepson, boyfriend/girfriend’s mum/dad, boss/employee, personal trainer/client, massage therapist/client, bored housewife or hotwife with the window cleaner/postman/pizza delivery boy.

Set the scene describing who is who, you the female counterpart and the member plays the male.

Talk about what the male is doing to her (you), or what she is doing to him and act along with toys and sexy actions.

Femdom chat

Many cam site members get off on being told what to do. This can be in the form of jerking or edging instructions (JOI), humiliation, mind games, blackmail, and various other forms of domination style chat.

These type of shows are hot property. Research along with a deep level of understanding is essential.

There are so many different ways to do femdom chat shows. It is difficult to coach these skills as they need to evolve in a manner that suits the individual’s persona.

The preferences of the recipient always vary from person to person too. This is because one format does not suit all.

I recommend lots of reading and research online. Look for books about S&M because these provide plenty of ideas.

Games

If you want to do something light-hearted and fun, bring out the game play!

Card games, tarot, dominos, raffles, quiz, are all ways to keep members keen.

Some models love to game online whilst they cam and find this brings in quite a crowd! This is especially the case if the model adds a sexy dimension such as topless or strip tease whilst gaming.

Annabelle

Striptease

Put on your favourite music, or enable a tip option where viewers can tip to request a song. Bring out your inner stripper by dancing sexy, going with the flow and losing your clothes!

Set these up as tip goals or tip menu options and you have an awesome show right there.

Twerking

A bouncy set of buns twerking is a massive turn-on for many guys on cam sites! Twerking is fun and it creates energy. It is a great vibe when done to your favourite tunes.

You can build twerks into tipping shows, give them as prizes on games and use them to tease and encourage members to spend more money.

Bikini twerks, micro thong twerks, even naked twerks are sure to get the members gravitating.

There are plenty of amazing tutorials on You Tube for twerking if you’re not sure now to do to and want to master it.

Just search “how to twerk” and have fun learning!

Topless fun

Do you have a set of ‘funbags’ you’re happy to flaunt and shake around?

Topless shows including oil shows, shimmy, titty twerk, titty fuck, titty licks and spit shows are all extremely popular choices.

The trick with topless fun shows is to keep them playful and sensual, with plenty of nipple teasing.

Annabelle

Link these shows to tips or goal shows and you incentivise your audience to tip for the tits!

Toy shows

Regarding toy show ideas for new cam models, I totally recommend the interactive toys which react on tips.

Most cam sites nowadays have the interface for Lovense as these toys are extremely lucrative tipping tools.

Members go tip crazy for the Lush, Domi and the Hush. Every cam model I know features one or more of these in their live and/or private shows.

Take a look at these toys right here.

My recommendation is start with the Lush as this one seems to be the crowd pleaser.

As you grow in experience and make money, add others to your collection.

Wet shows

A show in a bathtub, jacuzzi or shower is a fun way to grab the attention of potential spenders and keep them captive in the room!

Plan one with plenty of bubbles, candles and music to set a sexy scene and entice them in.

Use a sponge to seductively stroke the body and keep some waterproof sex toys to hand!

Oral tease shows

Cam site visitors love nothing more than the thought of a hot woman giving them oral pleasure.

A cock-shaped dildo is a cam model must-have prop for shows such as blowjobs.

Use the lips and tongue close to the camera as this is immensely ball-tingling for the recipient.

When performed with plenty of spit and eye contact into the webcam, you’ll get them hooked and coming back for more!

Annabelle

A blowjob as a show type on a tip menu or tip goal, or offered as a nude show in private, is a smart way to monetize this act of ultimate pleasure and make any man online happy!

Day to day activities

I know it sounds absolutely mad… Try doing regular activites such as the housework, creative things such as playing an instrument or doing art, or fitness workouts on cam.

These are all things that fill potential spenders with intrigue and tempt them into chat rooms.

These activities are often great ice-breakers to start chat.

If you dress in something that’s out of the ordinary for the activity, that’s a dead-cert way to draw attention to yourself on cam!

I hope you enjoyed reading my show ideas for new cam models blog, and that this helps you along in your cam modelling journey.
