When you sign up as a broadcaster on a new cam site, you’ll be in the New Models category for a limited time. Lots of customers love checking out new models – you’re not a hardened old camgirl like me yet, ha. 😛
New Model Status: Take Advantage of Extra Promotion
The promotion period varies from site to site, so pay attention when you’re setting up your account.
- Streamate – 30 days
- Chaturbate – 7 days
These examples are current while I’m writing this, but you should always cross-reference in case they become outdated.
The key to your success as a webcam model is your fan base. These are the top 5 tips to help you develop your solid foundation of loyal customers. Follow these from the start, and you’ll be setting yourself up for long term success.
Treat Camming Like the Job it is: Consistency is Key
Repeat customers become repeat customers because they know when you’re open for business.
Imagine you’re the customer for a sec. You’re hooked on this awesome camgirl and she tells you she’s going to be online at a certain time, so you go to meet her in her chat room. But she doesn’t show up. Think you’ll be inclined to keep coming back?
Treat your customers like you would in any business, and be reliable with your schedule.
Your consistent schedule will lead to your consistent fan base.
Tweet, Tweet, Tweet
Second to keeping your consistent schedule is to keep up with Twitter. Get your fans following you so you can keep them updated on what sites you’re using and what shows you’re planning.
If you decide to try a new site, for example, your fan base will follow you there. Many cam sites do not allow mentioning other cam sites or outside contact information, so Twitter serves as a platform where you are free to market yourself wherever you may be and keep in touch with your loyal customers.
Money happens more when you don’t think about it.
If you act like you’re just there for the money, you’re going to lose potential clients. Your guests want to believe that you WANT to be online hanging with them. Sure, at the back of their minds they know you’re working for an income, but that’s not what they need to be focused on.
Chill out, enjoy getting to know your guests and learning to rock your cam. Get your fans’ focus away from their wallets and they’re more likely to open their wallets for you.
Turn Up Personality, Be Assertive, and Be Ready For Anything
Remember your personality is the ultimate factor to whether you’re going to gain a loyal following. Let yourself shine. Let them see you. Trust me, your quality fans will love you.
Know your boundaries and be ready to experiment within your boundaries. Customers love a camgirl willing to try new things within her limits. Eventually you may even push those limits, but don’t rush that process. Stay true to yourself and your personality, and your best fans will keep coming back for more.
Take it easy.
