How to Make Money as a Webcam Model

The world of webcamming is huge! A survey of 655 active webcam models, revealed that the average cammer earns $1,043 per week by working just 18 hours. In the UK, some webcammers earn up to £100 an hour.

Are you thinking about joining this lucrative business? Does being your own boss or just making some extra money on the side sound like a pretty good thing right now? Perhaps you don’t feel confident enough or maybe it seems like a taboo. Well, there’s a lot more to camming than just taking off your clothes!

You’d be surprised what people are prepared to pay to watch. From cleaning your home, to eating, getting dressed, applying makeup and much more. From a full-time career move to just making some money on the side, cammers also meet like-minded people and become part of a community that accepts and, possibly even, adores them.

We’ve spoken to some of our top cammers and got the low down on what it means to be in this industry. Get an inside glimpse and decide whether this might be for you.

Benefits of Being a Webcam Girl

Most webcammers we’ve communicated with say that one of the main reasons they chose to be a cam girl was the financial freedom and the ease of working from home that it provided. Here are some of the other reasons why they’ve continued with camming.

  • It’s Easy: All you need is a device like a laptop, mobile or tablet with a webcam. No other investment. This is possibly one of the only businesses you can launch without having to put in much capital. You might already have experience uploading videos on Instagram, YouTube or TikTok. It isn’t very different, except for a live audience.
  • Flexibility: You can work as many or as few hours as you want to, based on your financial goals. You also get to work your own hours. This leaves you free to pursue other interests and passions, without being tied down to a regular 9-to-5 job.
  • Confidence: While most cammers start out anxious, they soon learn to be themselves. The feedback from people they connect with online goes a long way to boost their confidence and self-esteem. This pays off in all other aspects of life.
  • It’s Exciting: You get to meet a lot of different types of people. You can create your own niche and develop a fan following. You could even play out your own fantasies with like-minded people.
  • Be Part of a Community: You get to be part of an enthusiastic community of active cammers, who can give you all the tips and support you need to succeed. You never know, you just might find your forever BFF right here.
  • Make a Difference: You get to earn by bringing happiness, excitement and entertainment to people. You get to create cool content that might just make you the next big diva.
  • Multiple Options: On you have the freedom to offer a wide variety of services or choose one that suits you best; from being an escort, hosting group or private webcam sessions, offering Phone Chat, SMS Chat or being a Content Creator, where you upload photos and/or videos.

But before you jump right into it, make sure you choose a trusted online platform. For example, at Adult Work, we carefully vet all participants on our website to make sure we offer the most conducive and safe environment for members. Check out all the services you can offer and how to register on our website.

Now let’s take a look at some of the other reasons why webcam models prefer to work with us.

Benefits of Working with Adult Work

At Adult Work, we are committed to providing the most satisfying experiences to all our members. This is why we average 10 million monthly site visitors. With choices of every type of sexual preference and orientation, we offer comprehensive services, including individual, group and couple webcam sessions.

Those looking for a reliable source of income can benefit from our record of more than 2 million webcam sessions held over the past 3 months. Following the onset of the pandemic, people are increasingly turning to virtual solutions for all their needs. This has helped our cammers benefit immensely.

Most importantly, we are known for our quick and transparent payments. We hold the record of the highest withdrawals in the industry, at a whopping 70%. This means that if you earn 100 credits (Adult Work Points), the admin fee is 30 credits. So, for every £100 you earn in AW points, you receive £70. In fact, for DirectCam, we do not apply VAT at all.**

Tips to Get You Started

We spoke to our active cammers about their experience. Here’s what they had to say.

“For newcomers, you might be nervous at first but just smile and be yourself. The customers are always super friendly.”Pandora_Banks_ (AW Cammer)

Pandora recommends that you set your own goals and work hours. This way, you get into a routine and your customers are sure of when they can connect with you. The key to success is to be consistent and persistent. She also says that you might have many questions in the beginning. Joining a group helps, since they can show you exactly how things work, such as logging in, uploading pics, answering calls, etc.

You will soon realise that not all customers want you to get undressed and put on an erotic show. Many are looking for someone to talk to or have a laugh with.

“What is great about is that it runs a premium business model where you are paid by the minute. This gives you more flexibility with your time as you don’t have to be on all day working for tips. Your time is your own and you are paid for that time. It means you can get on with other things between cam calls.”BendyCuteness (AW Cammer)

BendyCuteness joined us because she wanted the freedom of being her own boss, rather than reporting to someone else. For her, the biggest challenge was opening up to people about her livelihood. But she says that she makes a good living and has even been able to buy her own home. When she did open up about how she could afford luxuries in life, she found that people who cared about her were happy and supportive.

Her top tip for a newcomer is to invest in good lighting. It makes a huge difference to the quality of the webcam session. Ring lights give natural light and are a good option. Most importantly, have fun. Customers are more likely to return if they see you enjoying yourself too.
