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.

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!

MENTORING

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!

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!

All members love meeting the latest models joining their site because this is exciting for them. Enjoy the buzz of connecting with new people. Tell them you’re new and learning.

They won’t expect you to know everything on your first day. Many will be keen to support you if you’re personable towards them and appreciative of their support.

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.

Annabelle

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.

Girl, you got this!
