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.

Webcam Model with Personality

Connect With Personality

We’ve seen it many times: a beautiful cam model outperformed by a cam model who might not be as gorgeous, but who knows how to use their personality to attract customers.

Remember this adage: Your physical look is what attracts customers. Your personality is what keeps them coming back.

The ability to form strong connections with customers is what sets middling cam models apart from highly successful ones. So how do you use your personality to turn a new customer into someone who will be with you for years to come?

Here are some strategies that you can put into play immediately. Consider these as tools to help you “tune up” your webcam performance. Ready?


  • Ask the Right Questions: When you go out with someone for the very first time, and all they do is talk about themselves, are you likely to ask for a second date? Probably not. Well, the same principal applies for your first-time customers. Asking questions shows customers that you’re interested in them as people. It also reveals valuable information you can implement to turn up the heat on their private show experience.
  • Follow-up Questions: You’re not just trying to make a customer think you’re interested, you’re also trying to seduce their mind, discuss their hobbies, tease them with your knowledge of their likes and dislikes, etc. Follow-up questions pave the way to real conversations, and conversation is the foundation of constructing strong relationships.

Use Your Unique Voice

  • Be Vocal: Most customers who spend time with you will find talking (as opposed to typing your replies) in your open room much more enjoyable and worthwhile. This is even more important in private. Typing your responses is time consuming (in a time-based show type) and can be an obstacle when you’re trying to hone in on an intimate moment.
  • Don’t Jump to the Juicy Parts: When a private begins, don’t immediately begin performing. Spend time learning, conversationally, what it is that they’re seeking. Ask them questions about their day (yes, more questions are good). Share something personal about yourself (it doesn’t have to be true), and let them know how excited you are to be with them. The more special they feel, the more comfortable their experience will be with you.

Positive Thinking is Everything

  • Be Positive: Don’t underestimate the power of being positive. Customers will come to you seeking many things: companionship, intimacy, erotic fantasy and conversation. They’re looking for an escape from the stress of their real life day-to-day life. Smile. Elevate them to a more positive place. Be confident and welcoming. Your good attitude lets customers know they’ve come to the right place — a place that’s better than the reality they are used to. You will become their positive fantasy.
  • Notes are Your Friend: Learn to take notes on specific customers while they’re in your chat room. Use these notes to double-down on the particulars of a certain user. He or she will thank you. Remembering the fine details of any interaction is a smart way to show customers you value them for who they are. Customers want to be seen as being special in your eyes. It makes them feel as if your shared experience was as positive for you as it was for them. This level of dedication will distinguish you from the majority of the models they visit either on your site or a competitor’s site.


  • Flirty Nicknames: Concocting a personalized flirty nickname for a customer is another tried-and-true way to make your interactions more intimate and memorable. Making them feel like they are the apple of your eye, even in a small way, will play a huge factor in converting them into return customers.
  • Appreciate Generosity: Be ever grateful for every tip, large or small. Honestly, none of us know if a customer is wealthy or on a tight budget. The amount that they spend in your room could mean more to them than the amount itself (the monetary value) suggests. Let them know you appreciate their tip (even if it’s a small amount). Remember, you are making a difference in a person’s life You should trust that they are rewarding you with a value that is sufficient to what they can afford. Saying, “thank you” or shouting out their screen name when they tip is another way to make them feel more connected and special.

Not every model is a social dynamo. It’s natural to feel shy and intimidated in your early camming sessions. But remember, you are the star of your chatroom. These customers clicked on you, hoping you’re the right model for them. If you struggle with engaging your users, following these simple tips will help you establish longer and more lucrative connections with the customers who visit you.

Private Shows: Make Them Memorable (Part ONE)

Welcome! Let’s get you up to speed on making your private shows a memorable experience.

So a new customer has taken you private. Maybe it’s your very first time to go private. There will be a ton of questions bouncing around in your head before you even start performing. What do they want? How can I maximize my earning potential? How can I ensure they become regulars?

Don’t worry. In this article, we’ll give you some solid advice to guide you onward with your success. Ready? Let’s rock.

Tips for Success

The Greeting: Greet the customer in a friendly manner, and thank them for choosing you. It helps if you are enthusiastic about performing on cam, and appreciative that they chose you over all of the other models on the site. Trust me, an environment of inclusion is one a customer will want to frequent.

Ask Questions: It’s probably a good idea to not launch directly into performing. For starters, you won’t have an idea of what the customer wants. Start with small talk. Ask them about how their day is going, share something interesting about yourself. Let the conversation organically drift to the topic of sex. What you two talk about will provide valuable information you can use to create a stimulating show the customer won’t forget. However, if they push right away toward performance requests, do your best to adapt.

Cam2Cam: One of the best questions to ask is: ‘Do you have a camera?” Most successful performers will tell you that (since we’re on a Flirt4Free kick) Cam2Cam is a great way to make private shows more intimate. Simply said, Cam2Cam is when the customer can see you and you can see the customer. This level of engagement shows customers you’re interested in more than just what they type in the chat area. Some will be too shy to try, so don’t push if they don’t seem willing. But it never hurts to remind them of the option. Learn about Cam2Cam in this article from the official Flirt4Free blog (warning: NSFW).

Prepare Yourself: Some customers will give you a liberating creative freedom. Others will ask for something ultra-specific. Make sure you have the interactive toys, outfits, and other tools of the camming trade on hand. When a customer asks: “Do you have high heels and nipple clamps?” and you reply, “Yes, I happen to have them right here,” they’ll know they’re in the right place, and trust will blossom like flowers in the spring.

Light Up Your Cam! Tips for Better Webcam Lighting

When a customer enters your room, YOU are the first person they see. And, they see you as framed by your webcam, set against whatever background you’ve chosen, BUT they also see you (literally) by how you’ve lit your room. Ask any top cam model and they will tell you that great lighting is a necessity if you want to attract more customers to spend time in your room. Imagine if you, as a customer, entered a model’s room and that model was poorly lit — the shadows, the darkness, the blur. How would you feel? Would you want to tip that model? Would you want to take that model to private? How does the quality of a model’s lighting effect his or her live show? In this short article, we’ll dive into the basic, but incredibly effective 3-light setup, and hopefully, get you lit up better than you’ve ever been lit up before.


Before you go live, really look at what you’re broadcasting. In all honesty, do you think you’re properly lit? Are your best features being accentuated? Are your lights too bright? Too dim? Sometimes, just by simply previewing yourself before you broadcast can solve the problem of poor lighting. It might be that you need one more lamp or to turn on an overhead light and your problem will be solved. Or, it could be that your light is way, way too bright against your skin. Turn it away from you. Tweak your light sources so you look just right.


Becoming a lighting expert is easier than you might think, but it does require a bit of thought. That said, it’s worth it. Let’s dive in.

Key Light: This light is the key that unlocks your beauty to shine. It’s your strongest light. Position it behind the camera. It faces toward you and it’s best to keep it at a 45 degree angle from you. That is, if you’re sitting facing your camera, you can place your key light in front of you and to the right. Experiment with how far it should be from you, because every light is different. Remember, key light equals BRIGHT.

Fill Light: This light “fills in” the shadows created by the key light. Position it behind your computer and to the left. That is, if you’re sitting facing the camera, you can place your fill light in front of you and to the right. Just like the key light, experiment with how far it should be from you. Every light is different. Don’t make the fill light as bright as the key light. That’s important. If you do this, there’s a good chance it’ll distort how your skin looks on cam.

Back Light: This light is best when kept behind you and out of the frame. This means, that the light should not be visible in your webcam. An overhead light would work fine. Or, a lamp on a high table. The purpose of this light is to light what’s behind you. It makes you appear more 3-D. It makes you come to life. This light should also be the dimmest of the three lights.

Test out these lighting tips in your room. Take some time to make things look and feel right. It could mean the difference between a good night and a GREAT night.

Got it? Great!


Experiment with your lighting setup and you’ll reap the rewards! Truly. Proper lighting can make or break a broadcast. The better you light up your space, the more customers are going to want to step into your room and engage you in conversation. And, the better you’ll appear. Customers will want to see you. Make them want you. 

cammingOnce you find a great lighting setup that suits your broadcast space, play with it until you know it works well. Once you get to that point, you can work on experimenting with different locations around your broadcast space. Maybe you want to perform in the kitchen or in the shower. Maybe you want to do a show in the living room. Wherever you go, you’ll be able to properly get yourself lit and lit well. As broadcast possibilities expand so will your knowledge of how to light yourself.

Remember, your time on cam is a performance. You are the star and it’s important that you take the time to make your room into the best room on the site. Of course, your performance is key, but great lighting will always be “key” to making you light up like a sky full of shimmering stars.

So, onward, cam models! Keep doing what you’re doing and let’s all work to get better.

Fans: How to Reconnect With Energy

What happens when you leave your fans for an extended period of time? Think about it… Ready? Well, simply said, they find someone else. That’s right. They find another muse, another gorgeous cam model (like yourself) who’ll help them get their rocks off day in and day out. And, if you’ve become their virtual companion, then they’ll be crushed… But they’ll move on. Begrudgingly. But they will.Then again, maybe some of them don’t know you’re back. Spreading the word and being professional about it is the way to succeed.

cammingAnd if you have stepped away from camming, but now are coming back, have you tried promoting yourself on social media? Have you kept a consistent schedule once you came back? Get out there on your site of choice and shout yourself out to the world. Your regular customers are probably still out there, they just don’t know that you are back. Honestly, you have to let them know. And if they don’t come back to you, build yourself up to a new base of fans. Like I said, when you broadcast, you are literally opening yourself up to the entire world. It’s a mighty big world out there. Trust me. Perform your best and people will come (literally and figuratively).

As for conversations, treat your cam time like a true-to-life show. Or, treat your cam time as time spent as if with a close friend. Tell your customers erotic stories, fantasies, dreams. Tell them jokes. Show them what you are comfortable showing them. What I’ve found is that if you make them laugh and feel good, they’ll come back for more. Tease them. Please them. Ease them back into your world. Make your world one that they want to be a part of. If you do that, you’ll have them lined up and eager to tip and take you to private shows all night.


So, reconnect! What do you do when your webcam becomes disconnected from your computer? Yeah, that’s right. You reconnect it. Plug back in. If you love this work, then love it. Be it. One hundred percent. Perform. Express. Dance on cam. Jump on cam. Let your positive nature bubble out of you like a warm volcano of erotic joy. You just have to do it and do it and do it.

Live it.
