Make Money on Cam: Model’s Perspective


Learn to make money on cam as you begin your journey online, your choice of broadcasting platform can have a great deal of influence on the trajectory of your career. It’s not that one cam site is better than another. But the truth is, one site might work better for you than another. We recommend a trial and error process. As you discover your strengths and weaknesses as a performer, you’ll soon lean what format will best compliment your style to help you.

What’s a Freemium site?: 

Freemium sites have a lot of models all vying for the attention of customers who may or may not pay. Rather than long-term regular relationships, the models who excel to make money on cam are creative exhibitionists, with a knack grabbing attention in a saturated space. Most of the Freemium sites offer a higher commission percentage than a premium site, but the trade-off is that the models are on their own to market themselves, and find ways of gaining the attention of potential fans while trying to make money on cam.

If you’re more of a communicator, adept at exploring fantasies with your viewers and building relationships that simmer over time, then you may struggle to make ends meet in an overcrowded freemium environment. But the good news is, there are other platforms out there that are perfect for your particular brand of virtual intimacy. One premium site that has emphasized the profitability of long-term, well-maintained model/fan relationships is Flirt4Free. They are a premium site, which means that, while they may not boast the same traffic as their Freemium counterparts, a higher percentage of their base consists of paying customers interested in getting to know you, and who regularly take their favorite performers into pay per minute one-on-one shows.

In the last 20 years, they have received a myriad of industry awards, praising their individual performers, as well as the support and training they offer all of their models. Rather than ask the company directly about the secret to their two decades of success, we reached out to several Flirt stars to ask about how they make money on cam with the network.

Thoughts from Cam Models: 

Angel Dee: “I was on another site for 10 years before switching to Flirt4Free. I couldn’t be happier. It’s a great site, with wonderful members and an unbelievable support staff who helped me achieve my goals in a very short amount of time. I can honestly say I’m here to stay.”

Patricia I: “I worked on other sites, but soon realized that F4F had the kindest, smartest customers. They make the experience of being online so pleasant, and are really interested in me as a person. Flirt is definitely a place where having that connection between people is really important, and I love that.”

Selma Wood: “I remember my first login like it was yesterday. I was very scared. But my first day was fantastic! An Australian man took me into a 45 minute private show! It was so sexy and sensual. I’ll never forget it! Now, as soon as I wake up in the morning, the only thing I can think about is getting online with F4F. The staff answers all my questions and has helped me every step of the way. And I never knew I could become so attached to so many people! I love my regulars. They’re my sweethearts!”

Male cam models:

Jones Ryan: “Without a doubt, my experience with Flirt4Free has been amazing! They do all they can to enrich my knowledge of the camming medium and have really helped me grow professionally!”

Richie Rose: “I came back to Flirt4Free after a 2-year break, and it has completely changed my quality of life! My schedule it totally flexible! I’ve been able to go back to school full-time, spend more time on my art, all while making genuine connections and friendships with Flirt members, as well as a ton of sexy memories!”

At Male Modeling Online you can sign up to become a gay or straight cam guy. Once you complete the process, you will see the support staff are dedicated to helping their models to be as profitable as possible while still offering the same freedoms and bfound elsewhere.

Profile Pics to Make Money: Training 101

Your profile picture is the best first impression that you’re going to get when it comes to webcam modeling. And that first impression happens in the blink of an eye. How a customer sees you as presented on the screen of his/her computer will either spark with that customer or not. Do your best to enhance and stylize your profile pic to show you as you wish to be seen and you’ll be doing yourself a favor. How do the best of the best do it? Top models use indoor and natural light, unique angles, and HD clarity to create inviting, attractive profile pics that fit their respective brands. Read on to see how you can use these techniques to your advantage.

First Impressions Are Everything 

Profile Pic Cam SiteFor a cam model, first impressions mean the world, and the first impression you make on a potential customer is your profile picture. Your hand-selected profile pics could mean the difference between getting more business or not. Simply said, if the picture doesn’t draw in the customer to click on your room, consider it a missed opportunity. We, at Guide to Camming, recommend using your best images. They should speak volumes about what your personal brand is all about.

Hire a Professional 

If you want the best results, go for the best in terms of photography. An experienced professional photographer can bring out your very best features, move you into complimentary color schemes, and provide you with a high standard of quality.

Further Advice

Of course, we realize that this may not be an option for everyone. So here is some advice if you plan on photographing yourself:

  1. Go HD 
    Using a camera or phone with full HD capabilities is important for viewing your photos in the best light. Another great option is to use your HD Webcam, as most will give you the option to take still images.
  2. Don’t Show Your Camera
    Candid selfies can be fun to share with your fans via social media or through a texting service like FlirtSMS. But you don’t want anything in the photograph that draws the viewers attention away from you. Invest in a portable tripod and make sure you have a camera with a countdown timer so you have the chance to strike the perfect pose before the snap.

Style Your Brand

  1. Keep the Focus on Your Body or Your Face
    Remember, you don’t want anything in the frame that could distract a potential customer from you and your look. Ensure that there’s no visible clutter, or anything else that might divert attention away from your face or body.
  2. Craft Your Look 
    Wear something that makes you feel sexy and entices customers with a lovely hint of your personality. Put on something that really makes the rest of your assets stick out, or works well with your particular fetish. Sexy outfits will attract customers and make you appear confident in what you’re selling.
  3. Focus on Angles 
    Snap a lot of test photos to discover your best side, your best positions, and your best angles. A tripod will help you position your camera to catch you at your most flattering. High-quality full-body shots of models standing or laying down tend to be the most popular on premium chat sites.

Go for the “Profile Gold”

  1. Lighting! Lighting! Lighting!
    A high-quality camera works together with clear lighting. Beach and poolside swimsuit photos might look beautiful, but the sun can be a very harsh light source. Learn how to use a screen. Ideally, multiple light sources are best for indoor photos. Remember, you won’t grab a customer’s attention if he can’t see you!
  2. Know Your Brand
    Your photos should show your body and your unique brand! If your body looks different now than it did 4 years ago, don’t use that old photograph. If your photos show you in BDSM gear but you’re not a fetish model, don’t use them. Photos that mirror your true self will attract customers who want the fantasy you’re selling. However, pictures that misrepresent you will make it difficult to establish trust with a new fan and attract visitors looking for something you don’t offer.

Profile Pic Webcam ModelingAs a model, popular webcam sites like Flirt4Free provides the option to make multiple photos available on your bio. Take advantage of this. It’s worth it. Not only will these multiple photos help draw customers into you chatroom, but a solid library of high-quality photos will help us feature you on social media like Twitter and other social media platforms. So get to it, aspiring model extraordinaire, and start snapping some pics!

You’ll be rocking your webcam career in no time!

don't give up


Give your customers a great experience and they’ll come back for more. You definitely want to keep your regular customers close, and let them know that you see them in the room. Acknowledge them. Smile to them. But, you also probably also have new customers in the room, customers who would love to see you smile at them, would love to see what you can do, would love to hear you talk and flirt.

This is your first impression with some customers. Make it count. I can guarantee you that the customers in your room are ogling you, studying you, and hopefully loving their time with you so much that they want to tip you. A party of one is not a party.

Be inviting. Be welcoming. Be sexier than you’ve ever been, and always, always have fun.


Tease and Deepen

Most customers want some kind of flirtatious engagement with you. That’s probably why they come to your chat room. At least at first. Don’t be surprised. People like to be flirted with. They may want to say things to you that they can’t express to others in their day-to-day life. Or, they may want to establish some kind of virtual companionship with you that’s also lacking in their day-to-day life. Either way, you are playing an important role in the life of that customer. So, what can you do to make sure that your time is well spent?

TeaseDeepen your communication with your customers. Tease them. Make them laugh. Most importantly, dear model, turn them on. If you can continue to do this, your customers will want more of what you are offering. They’ll come back to your room and spend on you. They’ll make your time count. And, at the end of the day, this bond between you and the customer is what makes this so rewarding, right? However, is this kind of communication easy? It’s not. What, then, does it demand?

At its root, it demands that you truly become a great performer on cam. Moreover, it demands that you work on becoming a better performer every time you come on cam. Yes, EVERY time you come on cam. Consider this your training. The more you do it, the better you will get at it. And, trust me, while you see other cam models fizzing out because they don’t know why they aren’t feeling fulfilled on cam, you will be the one who lasts longer, gains more fans, and ultimately succeeds. You will look back and know that your time has been well spent.

Success feels like a million bucks, doesn’t it? Make a plan to flirt wisely, deepen your approach, and practice it. Set goals for targets that you want to it as  cam model and achieve them. Keep yourself focused on what drives your customers wild and improve upon that every time that you go on cam. If you do this, you’ll definitely be stepping up your game, and you’ll notice the difference. 


Communication is King

CommunicationAs a model, your chat room is not only driven by your physical performance and sexual appeal, but also by how you choose to interact (i.e. chat or speak or communicate) with those who have chosen to spend time (and hopefully money) in your room. Thus, it’s very important how you communicate with those who have chosen to spend time with you online. Greeting customers with a blown kiss, a wave, a smile, with a vocal shout-out, or with a personalized whisper can catch their attention and make them want to further interact with you. Of course, we all have moments when we just want to relax and keep quiet, but remember that new people are coming into your room all the time. At heart, communication is king. 

Unless you’re fully engaged in a physical performance (dancing, exercising, etc.), take a moment to say or write, “Hi” to those who’ve opened the virtual door to your fantasy space and let them know that you recognize them. Even if they don’t reply to you, that doesn’t mean they’re not taking note of how you interact with them. Any gesture of flirtatious kindness or genuine niceness that you express will make a positive impact on your customers.

CommunicationKeep in mind that some users also enjoy watching a chat unfold as a kind of silent voyeur. They want to see your replies to others. They want to hear your voice. They want to hear you laugh and moan. They want to experience whatever role you’re performing. In short, they want to watch you. Taking a moment to talk to your customers, even if they don’t reply, could transform your live experience in a positive and more profitable way.

And, at the end of the day, don’t we all want to look back at the work we did on cam and think, “Wow, that was a great experience.” By exercising better communication strategies, we are taking those steps to better ourselves and better how our rooms operate. Plus, we are taking concrete steps to increase the good energy in our room, and, in doing so, increase how much we can make in a cam session. Keep positive. You can do it!
