    Hey! Just found your site, it helped a lot.

    I Just started camming and i feel pretty vanilla (i like the natural girl next door without all the elaborate stuff) and average compared to other models, and i feel lost, but your tips helped a lot.

    Hi. I’m worried that if I start this people in my personal life would find out some how? My boyfriend is totally ok with it but I’m really scared that some how my account could be tracked to me? Also, do the bank enquirer as to why you’re getting these payments because I don’t exactly want to tell the bank what I’m doing. Thanks!

      Hi Emily,
      I understand you’re concerned about your privacy. I recommend reading this post for some tips on how to maintain your anonymity while on cam. Banks don’t need to know anything beyond that you are an independent contractor. If someone pushes, just say sales or customer service. It’s none of their business, lol. Thanks for reading O Camgirl!

    I had questions on getting people to tip on sites like Chaturbate. I see lots of people with Goal Apps and am at a loss as to what to do for goals. My first show I tried a step goal for getting me naked and then maybe more but no one came in. Once I finally just stayed on camera nude and had some light teasing, more people flocked in but I wasn’t sure how to keep them viewing. Any tips on what to do in my “free” chat while waiting on a private show would be much appreciated.

      Be yourself! Have fun and don’t get naked for free. Know your worth and don’t compromise on your value. Your fans will find you – just show up and have fun. Use apps, play games, hang out, chat, tease, dance, do whatever makes it fun for you. If you’re having fun, your viewers will be having fun, and that’s what will get them to come back and tip for more. Good luck!

    Hi! First off, thank you for this website. It is so helpful. I’d really love to get started as a cam girl, but my main concern is I have roommates, so it would be hard for me to have shows at home. Are there any studios or alternative that you recommend? Thanks 🙂

    Reply
    • Cat June 19, at 19:13

      Hi Lo! I’m so happy to hear that O Camgirl has been helpful. Roommates are tricky, especially if you are concerned about them knowing what you do. If you are, and you need to find somewhere besides your home to cam from, you’ll need to do some research and look for physical camming studios or other possible alternatives like a cheap room with high speed internet. I can’t recommend anything specific.

      Normally I would recommend working from home, since that’s where you’ll make the most money. If you don’t share a room, perhaps lock your door and cam at night or while roommates are at work until you can afford to get your own place.

      Good luck!

    Is the use of social media key in gaining popularity and making money? Even with a fake name, I would really like to stay as private as possible. Can I still make decent money without promoting myself on social media sites?

    Hi, I don’t really know if I should be doing this, but, my ex is a camgirl. I feel sorry for her that is the only work she knows but doesn’t get paid properly because she works for somebody else she calls her boss. She only gets paid after making weekly quota. How can she do better for herself, by working for herself. I am prepared to support her even though she is my ex.

      Hi! Your ex does not need to be working for anybody but herself. If you can help her get set up at her home, she can start getting paid properly! Following the steps and tips found on this page will help. Good luck!

    Thank you for having such a helpful website! I know this is going to sound awful but I am trying to doing this in a very small apartment with paper like walls. How can I create a sexy/logical reason to need to be quiet? Do customers mind if you have music on in the background? I plan on buying the $65 logitech cam as you have recommended on this site, does that pick up sound well enough to where I may not have to worry about this issue?

    • Cat March 28, at 15:15

      I’m glad O Camgirl has been helpful to you! Sounds a lot like where I started. You could go with “I live in an apartment with paper thin walls” 😀 or there’s always the roommate option, that’s IF you find yourself needing to give an excuse often. A lot of girls do play music in the background – this is all a matter of personal preference. Some guests like it.. some guests will just mute you. The logitech cams I recommend pick up sound really well, so I never feel the need to be any louder than I want to be. People can hear just fine as long as your settings are all good. I hope this helps!

    I just got accepted as a Webcam Model, and I have no idea how I should start out. Should I start out naked or in lingerie? I have never seen a show, so I am not sure what to do.

    Reply
    • Cat March 11, at 19:49

      Way to go Madeline! Lingerie is a great idea – you only want to tease, give your guests a reason to pay to see more. 😉 I would also recommend observing a few top models on your site just to get a few ideas on how to manage your room. If you have any other questions just ask! Best, Cat

    Is it strange for someone to ask to go to skype for a private show? What would be the best way to get tokens from that? Pay first on the site and then go to skype? So far I have just turned down skype invitations though I did make a special account without my name.
    Thanks! I’m new at this.

    Reply
    • Cat February 24, at 14:05

      If you’re working on a site, stay on the site! If they want a show they’ll pay for it there and receive it there. People asking you to go to Skype are most likely just looking to rip you off. Thanks for stopping by! Hope that helps.

    Can a new camgirl model wear a mask to protect her identity? Or do they have to show their faces?

    Reply
    • Cat February 10, at 20:56

      You don’t have to show your face. BUT I would recommend against hiding it or wearing a mask. You’ll make most of your money from regular customers. They may be attracted to your body at first, but they’ll keep coming back for your personality, which your face is a big part of. Instead of hiding your face, you might want to consider wearing a wig and doing your makeup differently. I can certainly understand your privacy concerns, though, and if wearing a mask to start out makes you feel more comfortable, it’s not unheard of. Just be sure to check the site’s rules on wearing a mask beforehand. Hope that helps!
