What is Chaturbate?

What is ChaturbateChaturbate is a token-based currency adult webcam modeling platform for viewing sexually explicit material that is produced solely by its users, aka cam models that allows the performers to make money.

Chaturbate employs advanced technical options for cam models to create cam sites that go above and beyond compared to competitors in the cam-model industry.

A full customization platform that gives models options to earn extra cash from not just webcam shows but adding significant earning potential.

Extra earnings can include tip controlled interactive vibrators, selling pictures and video sets, customizing model pages, selling underwear and more.

Is Chaturbate good for new webcam girls and guys?

Chaturbate is great for new models starting out and website signup is easy as long as you are at least 18 years of age and a consenting adult. It is one of the platforms I used for posting content and earning money, and still do, when I began my model career. They pay very well and allow you to build a following quite easily.

Building a good group of regulars is the best way to make 100’s if not thousands of dollars more in the webcam model industry.

How Does Chaturbate Work?

You can interact with your webcam shows many different ways and earning money in different ways. Tip controlled vibrators like the lovense lush is one of my favorites. A sex toy in a stream can help you make more money. Performers can include sex toys in their amateur webcam stream and chat rooms and can also incorporate couples cams, room images, solo shows, men, women and attempt to go after every category.

It is a powerful vibrator set off by tips. This encourages people to tip great just to watch you squirm and cum over and over again. Everyone wins with Chaturbate!

As you familiarize yourself with the chat room options, and the best way to learn how to add and subtract the various options within the chat room controls, is to jump right in and start tweaking the settings and controls, you will become better and better at it.

There is no better way than just doing and practicing which can help you earn money in the long run. The options you get are always changing as the website platform improves its platform year after year.

Signing Up For Chaturbate is The Best Way To See What Its All ABout

Signing up for Chaturbate is completely free as long as you are 18 years of age or older. From here you can view cams in all categories except private (until you pay for a private) also known as premium shows.

If interested in a premium show you can purchase tokens do so. These tokens are the form of currency in which you use for both the premium cam shows or straight up tipping during public live webcam performances. You can also use tokens for spending on items like photos and videos that camming models have to offer.

Each cam model on this camming website performs because of the tips. Yes, you can watch completely for free or you can interact for a price that makes Chaturbate even more fun for both customers and cam models.

Cam models can make large amounts of money working as a cam model on Chaturbate. Some models have told me they make upwards of $7500 a month working 6 days a week for about 4 hours a day.

Chaturbate does take a cut of model earnings but based on the flexibility of the platform models do quite well with the right attitude and marketing skills.

Tokens System and Credits on Chaturbate

Mentioned before, tokens can be used to by pictures, videos, and subscriptions just like using them for tipping the cam models. There is also an opportunity to buy as well as sell panties (if you are a model) on Chaturbate.

Of course with tangible goods like selling panties, this can be achieved by contacting the webcam model via private messaging and arranging delivery and is completely up to the webcam model.

There are a number f ways to spend and also earn a load of cash using Chaturbate. For instance, Chaturbate as a company puts on many different contests for its cam broadcasters. Monthly prize money varies, but be in a top spot and you can earn bonuses for yourself.

The typical contest is top cams per hour in which you can be sent a prize in the form of cash. With no limits, if you keep broadcasting your webcam you can keep making more money.

How Much Do Tokens Cost On Chaturbate?

The token system might make your head spin in the beginning and we get asked this a bunch.

The simple answer for buyers is the price:

  • 100 tokens for $10.99
  • 200 tokens for $20.99 (5% Bonus)
  • 500 tokens for $44.99 (22% Bonus)
  • 750 tokens for $62.99 (31% Bonus)
  • 1000 tokens for $79.99 (37% Bonus)
  • 1255 tokens for $99.99 (38% Bonus)
  • 2025 tokens for $159.99 (39% Bonus)
  • You can get a bigger discount if you purchase tokens via wire, check, or money order, in an amount over $159.99 which will be credited at $0.08 per token. For instance, a $350.00 purchase would net you 4,375 tokens.

If Chaturbate Is Free, Why Buy Tokens?

An unknown feature to cam watchers on Chaturbate is the fact that everyone who watches cams is color classified or coded. With this system, cam models can tell just who are the big tippers or the casual watchers with zero cash in hand.

Think about it…

Purchasing tokens makes you more popular as webcam models can tell just how fat your wallet is and your spending habits. Just like a gentleman’s strip club. You would have attention pouring over you like a chocolate fountain at Golden Corral.

The Chaturabate Color Coding System Hard At Work

Each Chaturbate member is distinctly characterized by colors to identify who sends money and how on cam sites. The categories can tell a model how many tokens they have, how often they tip, how much they tip and spend, and also site activity.

The coding creates a natural response in webcam models to deliver the best service to those who are likely to tip. Cam models will be less apt to take a suggestion from a non-tipper than someone who drops money left and right in chat rooms and especially with private shows.

If you have a fat wallet and ask a broadcaster to spank herself, for example, you will have a much easier time getting her to do so.

Like the real world, money talks and bullshit walks. This is why Chaturbate is one of the best webcam model websites out there. Chatrooms and cams can get upwards of 10,000 viewers during peak times with lots of heavy spenders. If you wish to be a cam model Chaturbate is the perfect place to start making money.

Being A Part Of The Chaturbate World

A hugely active age verified webcam community with tons of traffic and interaction between members and models alike. It combines a social aspect from following and being a “fan” of other members.

The ability to shower gifts upon your favorite models via Amazon wishlists or to be able to purchase a model’s used panties easily makes this a great place to not only watch naked cam models do their thing but to also become a cam model and make money doing fun things.

 ‘The Act of Masturbating While Chatting Online’, Chaturbate’s motto, has made it one of the biggest and better cam model websites around and it is not going away anytime soon.

Selling Nude Pictures On Chaturbate

You will want to have a public non-nude Snapchat account, as well as a private nude Snapcash account as well, where you can sell nudes for cash via snapcash. The non-nude version will be cued to draw in fans and future watchers, which you can send straight to your webcam via a nice link to the chat room.

The key here is to take a bunch of sexy snaps and selfies daily and send them to your followers. Trust me they will want to see more and more as you entice them with sexy pictures. You can also sell your naked pictures online through your private account and invite them there as well.

Snapchat & Twitter Takeovers For More Followers

Create a sexy  Twitter and search for big SnapChat accounts such as Xhamster, Porntube, and Pornhub, and then contact them in an effort to “take over” the account for a brief time. Just make sure you have a full and complete sexy profile with a built-up following.

Earning money is important and partnering with like-minded individuals can help! The more complete your profile, the better. From time to time they will let you hijack their Snapchat account and this will come in handy for finding those paying webcam regulars. This gives you exposure to this audience where they like to hang out.

Sending Traffic To Your Chaturbate Cam Show

Soon after, if you are pressing enough, you should now have a very nice following. Whenever you start a live adult webcam show you can now snapchat your regulars that you will be live and naked for their entertainment.

I have seen models do this very well and suddenly they can have 2000-3000 watchers in one room. Imagine the tips after just a couple of hours in a chat room working as a model!

You always want new clients, to follow you as well! Urging them to do so will alert them via email every time you strip for the webcam, thus instant chat room capacity is inevitable on Chaturbate.

Add the suggestion to be followed via everywhere you can possibly think of. On the chat room page, your Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, and basically everywhere.

Making More Money on Chaturbate

This is the basis for driving thousands of dollars real money webcam earnings your way, but the single most important thing when being a webcam model on Chaturbate is simply, be consistent. From selling explicit adult photos via your cam profile to earning tips via a tip activated vibrator you want to be consistent with your cam model niche.

Keep your webcam going month after month and your earnings grow from paycheck to paycheck. Being consistent and building your following lists is the way to become a top earner!

Lastly, if you start to come up short on cam show ideas, the best advice I can give is to look at what other models are doing. Especially the successful models that seem to always have a large room following with every show they perform in. Often times it is best to imitate than to innovate.

If you are totally lost on how to become a highly paid and successful cam model there are a few great guides out there that can help. Our favorite is the Uber cam star webcam model guide and Snapchat earning through selling naked pictures as a webcam model is our very own SnapCash. UberCamStar

Making Money On Chaturbate With Bots and Apps

Chaturbate Apps & Bots

One of the nice things about Chaturbate that sets it apart from other webcam sites are the Apps and Bots Chaturbate allows. These are programs that can help cam girls and guys increase their earnings and keep things organized while camming.

There are a number of different apps to choose from. Everything from keeping track of tipping in the form of tokens to blocking particular users that annoy you.

Ohmibod Chaturbate App

One of the best apps, in my opinion, is the Ohmibod app for Chaturbate. This is the app that gets you off when someone tips. Upon tipping the app controls your Ohmibod device, sending unique vibration patterns into the vibrator itself. It is the most popular app to date on Chaturbate and makes for a good time for cam girl and cam watcher alike.

Check out the Ohmibod review for more info, but incorporating this feature will easily get you more tips and make your show more interactive.

Dice Bot For Chaturbate

Another well-constructed app for webcam models is the “dice bot” which gives viewers the chance to roll the dice so to speak. Once these digital dice a rolled the corresponding number the dice lands on will provoke the cam mode to perform a sex act.

This encourages tippers to tip even more by trying their luck. It gives live cam shows a sense of adventure and gambling thrill. The dice can be set up per the model’s desires and the rest unfolds for a unique cam model show.

Many camgirls use any of the following for more fun:

  • Spanking
  • Ass play
  • Pussy play
  • Flash Tits
  • Squirt

You get the idea. Using your imagination with these apps will easily gain you more attention on Chaturbate.

Ultrabot Makes Chaturbate More Exciting

The Ultrabot is an ultra-awesome app. This is your robotic webcam manager for lack of a better title. It essentially manages a large number of webcam watchers using leaderboards. It will post messages on your behalf for the live cam room to view.

Showing the world things like Leaderboards and big spenders. The people who watch cam girl shows, for instance, love to see their names up in lights. This always gets the model’s attention and helps the leaders feel like a room VIP, encouraging more tipping along the way.

The app also has little nuances that are helpful for bringing in more tips. It can allow only tipping webcam viewers to be able to chat vs non-paying free cam watchers. It can also post reminders to tip for certain activities of the models choice and lastly choose those who can speak freely in the chat room and ban those who are jerks.

In short, if you make your cam show as entertaining as possible you can increase your webcam model earnings even more. Chaturbate seems to have thought up many bells and whistles, making it an ideal camming website for cam girls and guys. If you are not already signed up with Chaturbate, now is the time to do so,
