What Does Camming Involve? What Do I Need to Do To Be A Good Camgirl?

There are as many ways to be a camgirl as there are cam girls working in the industry. While the vast majority of camgirls do overtly sexual camming involving sex toys and nudity, some women become successful being non nude camgirls or fetish camgirls. Many camgirls do a mix of each style, and part of being a successful camgirl is figuring out what niches you fit into and working hard to gain customers within those niches. Do know that it is generally much more difficult to achieve success as a non-nude camgirl, and success as a fetish camgirl involves understanding different fetish niches and crafting a cam ‘persona’ that fits one’s chosen niche. Here one’s choice of cam site is important as well. While nude/sex toy camgirls generally do well on every site, fetish cam girls do best on sites such as Streamate, AdultWork and IMLive. Fetish camgirls typically do not do well on myfreecams, although this site offers the best chance of achieving success as a non-nude camgirl.

Remember that, no matter which style of camming you choose to do, customers visit cam girls for personal interaction. If all our customers wanted was a generic sex show they’d watch porn, probably for free They come to us because we’re real people who can give them a personalized experience that caters to their desires. Uniqueness has value in our work, and that reality can be one of the most rewarding (and fun) aspects of being a cam girl. Don’t change yourself into what you think a ‘good cam girl’ should be, rather, adapt the job to suit your strengths and talents and recognize that your personality is an aspect of what you offer, so don’t diminish the value of that. As a cam girl you do more than sell virtual sex ‘show’, you provide live, personalized interactions with your customers that can range from conversation to hard core sex shows and everything in between.

What many cam girls fail to realize is that the quietest customers in a chat room, the ones NOT asking a million questions, are often the most lucrative and pleasurable customers. Interact with your room to maintain a good level of energy in your chat room, but never give too much individual attention to any one customer in free chat. Also, while you want to maintain a lively free chat room, you don’t want to send the message that you don’t want to be taken to private chat. Greet every guest who enters your room, but do not allow the incessant chatters in free chat to dominate your attention, as doing so makes it less likely that the quiet customers will invite you to a private show. Rather, when engaging with your chat room, address your free chat room guests as a group to subtly send the message that they will need to take you private for one-on-one attention. Always remember that your attention is the one asset your customers want the most, and that is what the best customers are seeking when they visit cam sites. The most successful cam girls recognize that they are not simply selling an appearance or sex show; they are offering customers a unique experience.

On any cam site, and in any style of camming, to be a successful camgirl you need confidence, patience and a strong work ethic. Confidence is important because as a cam girl you will encounter rude non-paying customers who thrive on being insulting. As most cam sites offer a block and/or silence button you can easily get rid of these people, but their words can be hurtful if you let them be. Number one tip; don’t let them get to you, just block them from your room and carry on 

The most important thing to remember when you become a cam girl is that you decide your own boundaries. Just because a customer offers to pay for something you’re not obligated to do it, and you decide what sort of behavior you allow in your cam room. Always remember that you are in control. Ban rude or obtrusive guests, and be energetic and pleasant with everyone else. Every successful cam girl finds her own personal style that works for them, so as you gain experience on cam you’ll find your own personal style if you pay attention to what works for you and what doesn’t. Some camgirls tease their potential customers in free chat, but not too much (you don’t want to give customers a free show) and some prefer to leave everything to their private shows. Provided you don’t show ‘below the belt’ nudity in free chat, what you choose to do is entirely up to you, and much of finding your own personal style involves trial and error. What may help is visiting the free chat rooms of some successful camgirls on the sites you’re planning to join, to get a better sense of what works and what doesn’t. Do not interrupt these camgirls while they’re working; just quietly observe several cam girls for a few minutes each to get a sense of what successful cam girls do in their free chat rooms.

While the ‘do’s’ tend to be quite individual to each cam girl depending upon her personal style and persona, there are some universal ‘do not’s’. Never show frustration or complain, even if you’re having a slow shift. You’re there to entertain, and guys who visit cam girls are not there to take on someone else’s problems. Also, don’t kick out guests who ‘lurk’ (don’t type chat), at least not during their first visit. Many paying customers do not try to monopolize the cam girl’s time in her free chat room; rather quite the opposite is often the case. The guys attempting to monopolize your attention in free chat asking a million questions often don’t go private at all.

Most importantly, never do anything that causes you either mental or physical discomfort. No amount of money is worth causing you distress.

Recognize as well that even on the best site there will be days when you’ll be in private chat constantly and days when the pace of paying traffic is slower. It takes time to build a base of regular clientele and camming is definitely not a get rich quick scheme. This is where patience and comes in. Look at camming like you are building a business, because you are. Achieving a steady high income doesn’t always happen overnight, and many new cam girls experience significant highs and lows in income from week to week.

Probably the biggest hurdle for new cam girls to overcome is the lack of a fixed schedule. In camming you are your own boss. No one is there to ‘force’ you to log into the cam site, so if you don’t have a strong work ethic and find it difficult to maintain initiative you may struggle. Being one’s own boss comes with a ton of freedom, but a significant level of responsibility as well. No is there to push you to go to work, it’s all up to you.
