The webcam modeling industry has grown by leaps and bounds over the last couple of years and it is now a billion industry supporting lots of lives. The flexible working hours and the ability to work from home has continued to draw more and more people to the business, the determining factor being that sex sells in a major way.
Skype Sex Shows
People are now financing their school fees and major businesses using money gained from webcam modeling. By the look it, online camming is a very lucrative business and the beauty of it is that you won’t have to break your back working on minimum wage since you set your own working hours and your own rates.
Selling Nudes and Camming On Skype
Webcam modeling comes in various forms, and Skype sex shows are just one of them. Skype camming is especially popular among independent models(indies). These are models who have chosen to do it their own way, working as freelancers devoid of the rules and regulations that come with being under a network or company.
Private Skype Sex
However, it is not all glory being an indie, since you will have to do the bulk marketing work on your own without the help of a network, which may sometimes turn out to be an uphill task especially if you are not a famous porn star or adult model. You will have to start from scratch and work your way up. However, if you are an established model it will become easier to promote yourself and draw your fans to chat live on Skype.
Just like any other enterprise, getting started is usually the hardest part. You have the idea all laid-up in your head but seeing it through to a successful take-off is always challenging. Below are some tips to help you on your road to success while doing Skype sex shows.
You will need to advertise yourself, because how else will people know what you have to offer?
Advertise Yourself on Skype Directories Skype directories provide a great platform for newbies since you are in desperate need to get your name out there. Most of them charge a small fee, but that is nothing compared to the potential contacts that you are about to get. You will have to be precise and introduce yourself, your stage-name, Skype ID and the kind of services you offer. You may also share your business email to ensure that no one is locked out of contacting you.
Advertise Yourself in Camming Sites – The best webcam sites have a strict policy against sharing info that will lead to poaching of their clients, but if you get on private cam-to-cam chat you can invite some your clients to link up with you on Skype for a more intimate session. If you are really popular on camming sites, you can draw as many clients as you want (but make sure you are not caught) and you will be able to increase your earnings, keeping in mind that camming sites always take a cut from all your earnings. Thus, when you work with clients independently you take the whole pie minus just the processing fees.
Advertise Yourself on Craigslist Craigslist is yet another platform to advertise yourself since your name will be exposed to a huge audience. All you have to do is share your contact info, especially your Skype name and wait for the requests to come. However, you will have to scrutinize everyone to ensure that you are not scammed. The best way to cushion yourself against scammers is to ensure that you get the deposit first before starting a show.
Advertise Yourself on Social Media Before going independent, it is always good to build a good profile on popular camming sites because this will get you more followers most of whom will even cross over and start following you on social media. Once you grow huge numbers on your social media, you can share your Skype ID on each of your accounts so that your followers can request for live sex shows on Skype. If you are really popular, a lot of people will want to see what’s beneath your sexy outfits and will be willing to pay top dollar for a Skype session with you. Most will become your loyal customers especially if you are active on twitter and IG and you regularly post sex-provoking photo teasers.
Some people use PayPal for direct deposits, but this is very risky since PayPal has a strict policy against funds generated through live sex shows and you risk being banned and your money getting vaulted. To ensure that you are paid, a lot of models use tools such as Skyprivate and Paxum.
Skyprivate allows Skype performers to get paid by accepting funds on their behalf. The company has been able to carve a niche in the adult entertainment business and is sort of a network for Skype performers. Using Skyprivate ensures you don’t get ripped off.
Paxum is yet another great platform for models since it works hand-in-hand with the camming industry. With Paxum, your payments will be safely processed and people will find it easy to work with you since they won’t have to back down due to the fear of getting ripped off.
Do Not Overcharge or Undercharge Overcharging may scare away too many potential customers. Not everyone will be willing to pay top dollar so just to be on the safer side meet your customers somewhere in the middle. Big spenders will not care about your asking price; they will shower you with tips and bonuses if you are good.
On the other hand, undercharging sort of waters down your brand & worth and you will not be able to attract the big spenders.
Charge Per Minute If you want to increase your earning capacity, charge per minute and you will not regret it. Time is money in the camming business.
The Longer the Show the More You Earn Do not rush your sessions because it will only reduce your earning capacity. Take is slow by strip-teasing so that by the time you’re removing your drawers, the client’s blood is boiling with desire and your earnings are piling up.
Get Interactive With Your Skype Clients This is the best way to ensure that they keep coming back for more. Remembering their names and some of the things they discussed with you during the last session matters a lot to them and this is how to you will earn their loyalty. It is important to know that not every client will be interested in sex every time, some will just want to chat with you.
Selling Skype sex shows is a very lucrative venture, and you may attract a loyal clientele because of the privacy it provides.
