Can I become a webcam model whilst I’m studying? It’s a question we’ve been asked plenty of times; providing you’re over 18, the answer is a resounding yes! Becoming a cam girl when you’re a student is an extremely wise idea. It’s a great way to fund your studying, take control of your finances and help you to become self-sufficient – all from the comfort of your own room! As experienced webcam models ourselves, we pride ourselves on growing a supportive and knowledgeable community of girls who love what they do! Here are our tips on becoming a cam girl whilst studying.
Get the Right Support
If it’s your first time branching into the adult industry, it might seem a little daunting to brave things on your own at first! This is where the support of an agency can make the world of difference to your career.
As win any place of work, it’s important that you feel supported and enabled to do your job. Unfortunately, there are agents out there who do not have your best interests at heart. Our founder, Amber, knows this all too well after having her life threatened by an agency she thought were helping her (read the full story here). Some agencies tend to take advantage of naivety within the industry, so it’s important that you do your research. If you’re looking for an agency to support you, look at what other webcam models have said about them. You need to know that you can trust them, they are available for you and you have a rapport with your line of contact.
At OTR Models, we achieve all of this and are extremely passionate about building each other up. We are available 24/7 for our girls, so if you have any questions or queries, we can help you instantly. The difference between our agency over anyone else, is that our founder and support team are all current or experienced cam models. Any advice you’ll receive will be coming from an authentic community source, who has most probably been in your shoes before!
Show Your Personality
If you’re wanting to become a webcam model, it’s important that a few things are in place. Firstly, you must do you research. Think about what you’d like to offer clients and what you enjoy. Have a definite list of things you do not offer, so that this is clear from the get-go. When setting up your camming profile, be sure to show a little of your personality, alongside what you offer. This is how you’ll initially attract people to visit you online.
Contrary to what you’ve probably been told, people use camming sites for connection and conversation! In fact, you have to be prepared to be a good listener. Authenticity and passion for what you do will shine through and it is this that will bring you regular clients over anything else.
Becoming a cam girl can earn you a lot of money, if done well. One of the main concerns that students have is that they might be exposed online. Consequently, they hide their face. Unfortunately, faceless profiles or streams never do well. Clients won’t be able to form a connection and the chances of them returning dramatically decreases, making it harder for you to grow your following. The simple answer here is to don a disguise. You’d be surprised at how different you’ll look in a different colour/styled wig and alternative colour eye contact lenses. Use other colour palettes when doing your make up and even wear a pair of glasses to detract from your facial features.
