Like in any other business, the harder thing to go through to get to the success are the first steps that need to be made. If you don’t have the courage to stand against the fails and the step-back of the first steps than it means you are not ready to become a webcam model and make money by yourself. In this area particularly, it takes a lot of striving to build a clientele and to make a name for yourself. The industry is big and basically anyone could be interested in becoming a webcam model. Every day people try to make money using this type of job, the competition is high, but with good advices and skills there may be no competition for you.
I would like to start first with the public chat area. In the industry of webcam modeling the most important thing to accord all of your attention and effort is the main public chat, which most of the sites today have it implemented in their site. In my experience, people that enter the public chat are the most important ones. Unfortunately, being a public chat the risk that anybody may enter on it. The risk is that you may be seen by people that know you (unless you are on a site that gives you the possibility to block countries), or by people who are there just to bring you down mentally. Some folks do not know too many things about this job and they may be very easily the biggest jerks. It will happen at some point a guy to enter on your public broadcast and to start talking bullshit about you and the way you look or stuff that is meant to make you feel bad.
On the other hand people may be helpful if they see you as a nice person and the may get to bully the jerk out from the chatting room. They may very well affect your judgement and decrease as well your working ability. The best thing about the public chat is that after you will gain enough experience you will be able to notice the good guys that are there for a good show and to pay good tips for it. In the public chat may as well be a lot of people at some point and you will not be able to accord attention to every person. Knowing which one would be more willing to pay you it is necessary. The guys to be ignored, are the ones that think this job is for free and they may ask you to do things that you normally do in private.
One other important point about how to become a successful webcam model is the energy you send to the public during your broadcast. It helps a lot to look happy and energizing. Most people love to see that and your chances of a good tip or of a private show are increased. Don’t be boring! To pick up some private shows, while on the public chat don’t just stay in one place and wait for someone to come. Move around, maybe hum a song that is playing in background, start to dance etc. Placing yourself in sexy positions also helps in increasing the chances of a private show.
