How to Become a Cam Girl: What to Expect During Your First Show

When learning how to become a cam girl, one of the most common questions we get asked is: “What can I expect to happen in my first show?” And our team totally understand why! Setting up a profile for camming can be daunting but actually going live is another thing. You may be worried about what you should say or what you need to wear. However, it’s important to remember that you are in control at all times. You get to decide the direction all of your shows go in.

As experienced camgirls ourselves, we understand the fear that comes with pressing the ‘Go Live’ button. However, as a leading webcam model agency in the UK, in order to ease your worries, the team at Off The Record Models talk you through what a typical first show is likely to involve.


  1. Setting Up Your Equipment

    If you want to know how to become a cam girl, your mindset needs to be focused and determined. It’s important to think about this venture like you’re starting anew business – rather than a job. As a result, you need to invest in equipment before you see any money come in. Aside from a computer or laptop and high-speed Internet connection, you should purchase a high-quality webcam, lighting set-up and microphone. This equipment will help make you look even better on camera and boost the quality of your shows.

    When it comes to setting all the equipment up for your first show, you want to use your tools to bring out your best features. With the webcam, you want to place it at either eye-level or just above so viewers feel like your talking directly to them. As for the lighting, you want to avoid pointing the beams directly at your body as you don’t want to create too many shadows or be too bright. Instead, place lighting on either side of you and one above you to create a soft, flattering setting.  

  2. Getting Ready

    When you’re deciding what to wear on your first show, remember that you should feel comfortable. One of the biggest benefits of camming is that you can embrace your sexuality and try different experiences so you can wear sexy lingerie or costumes. However, if that’s not what you’re into, a sexy dress or blouse is just as perfect! Your clients will want to see you being you and if you feel uncomfortable, that will come across on camera. When you’re having fun, they will be too!


  1. Going Live

    As soon as you go live, it’s important to show that you are engaged and interested in every single viewer that comes in. Make sure you address everyone and begin conversations with them to keep them hooked. If you want to draw more people to your live show, post about it on Twitter and Instagram. By using a good selection of hashtags, you can draw people to the show who may never come across your shows elsewhere.


  1. Taking Your First Paid Show

    On your live show, viewers will be able to request a private show with you for a higher price. You will receive an alert with a message and screen name, asking to go into a paid chat. If you accept, you will be taken to a separate stream where you and the viewer are alone. Some viewers will simply be looking for sexual experiences and if you’re happy to perform, then you can do so in the security of a private chat. However, a lot of viewers will just want to get to know you so you can enjoy connecting with that person in privacy. If you’re nervous, don’t be afraid to tell them that you’re new to webcam modelling- guys really love this!
