The importance of followers

The importance of followers, explained.

Build a strong presence and make money as a cam model by tuning in to your following. Here’s how…

You are newly registered to a cam site and have spent time setting up your profile. You’re all set with your equipment, outfits and toys; excited, ready to jump on and make lots of money.

It’s that easy!

Or is it….?

We all know money is the #1 motivator for cam models, but it should not be the sole focus, especially in the early days.

The truth is, it can be difficult to earn money consistently on cam until you seek out your supporters, who become your online fan club.

Your supporters are your darling followers. Concentrate on gaining them, which means winning them over and getting them to ‘follow’ or ‘favourite’ you on your cam site. This way they help you become established.

Any cam model can do this, providing they are patient and persistent going online regularly. Gaining a base of great followers takes weeks, months, even a year or two to establish.

So… be under no illusions, this will not be an overnight success.

Followers on cam sites do a number of things for you. They enable you to build your success on cam and make money on a continual basis. Followers help you in these ways:

1. Profile presence! You gain a profile presence, providing popularity which looks good to new potential followers when they view your profile offline.

2. Room presence! You gain a room presence when you are online, making your chat room appear well subscribed and desirable for others to join.

3. Rapport! They get to know you, build rapport with you and be your fan club for the long term.

4. Confidence! You gain confidence knowing you have supporters, which is very motivating.

5. Consistency! Knowing your fans are keen to see you every week encourages consistency to a working schedule.

6. Support! They will show support during slow times and have your back if and when others are impolite.

7. Monetize them! Followers are the perfect audience to sell to. You can promote your private shows, content, fan club subscriptions and merchandise.

8. Rating! You can utilise your followers to help you boost your rating. (See bottom paragraph).

Now you understand the importance of followers, you need to know how to get them on board:

1. Be personable! Greet them in a friendly way that makes them want to follow and support you.

2. Be appreciative! Thank them for following and let them know you value their support.

3. Be engaging! Chat and connect, show them you’re great company and they will want to come back.

4. Be receptive! Pay attention to what they say and try to connect on a personal level. Listen and respond to their needs and they’re encouraged to return.

5. Be their dream! Dress and style in an alluring way. This helps them feel attracted. Sex appeal always gains masses of followers, so keep your standards of presentation high!

6. Be original! Make sure your look, persona and shows are interesting or daring enough to stamp the WOW factor! Injecting some creativity helps them stay captivated.

7. Ask them! There’s no shame in asking members to hit the follow. Ask them nicely to do it and blow them a kiss. Make it fun, they love it.

8. Incentivize them! Here’s an idea… you can offer members and incentive such as a free picture or surprise tease if they hit you with a follow and tip an amount you specify!

Most sites have a feature whereby members can elect to be notified when their ‘followed’ or ‘favourited’ models are online.

This may be by email, sms or online notifications when logged in. They may be able to choose one or all options.

Always find out your site’s process for members to follow and elect for notifications.

Familiarise yourself with the process from a member’s standpoint viewing the site.

Do this so you can inform members exactly what to do to follow you when they visit your profile.


The last thing you want is the embarrassment of asking members to follow you, they ask how, then you have to admit you don’t know.

Regular communication with followers is highly beneficial as it strengthens rapport and serves as call to action.


One of the benefits of having followers on your cam model profile is you are able to direct message to keep them updated.

For example you can let them know your schedule and tell them about any special shows or promotions you run.

Tips for effective follower communication:

  • A cheeky DM is a reminder you’re due online and reminds them to come and spend their money!
  • A frequency of once a week is a happy medium to send out a broadcast to your followers.
  • Don’t spam or be too persistent, as this risks them unfollowing.
  • For any fans who wish to DM chat regularly, monetize this via your cam site. Set a price per message or a monthly charge for DM chat. This ensures your time is respected.
  • Bear in mind: communications through the cam also site offers protection if anybody makes you feel uncomfortable.

Every cam model should strive to be a top rated cam model. This helps with profile, presence, reputation and brand building in the industry.

Generally, higher rated models enjoy benefits like better placement or feature, greater interest from members and higher earning potential.


Most sites have an option for members to vote on or rate models. Check out your site’s ratings feature and make sure you understand how this works so you can use to your benefit.

Following and ratings, in an ideal world, should work hand in hand. Fans who follow or favourite cam models should be encouraged to rate them, too.

Ratings may be in the form or upvoting (thumbs up) along with a percentage, or rating in stars our of five, for example.

Not every member will be aware of the process so explain how this works. Tell them how much it means to you if they help boost your rating.

Now you understand the importance of followers, and the importance of being online to enable them to monetize your time!

A solid fan base combined with a high rating will help you to build a strong presence and ultimately work towards positioning you as a top model!

The long term gain is you maximise on the income potential that’s available to you.
