There are many benefits to being a cam model, but also many drawbacks as well. It’s not a career choice you can make easily and requires a lot of thought before committing. We’ll talk about some of the benefits of becoming a cam model first, then we’ll discuss some of the drawbacks to it.
Benefits of Being a Cam Model
Setting your own schedule
The biggest benefit of being a cam model is setting your own schedule. If you’re tired of being told when to be somewhere and what to do, this could be a great career choice.
Don’t confuse this with being lazy, as it’s going to take a substantial time commitment to be successful. You don’t just boot up your webcam and start making $50k a year overnight. Although you can work when you want to, you still need to work a lot.
You can make money while you sleep
When you start to gain a following, you can offer products for your fans to purchase and download when you’re not around. This is a great feeling, waking up to a few hundred dollars in sales. You can also set up services and products that have a recurring payment plan attached, so you know how much money you’ll make every month.
You receive gifts randomly
Your biggest clients are connecting on a level deeper than physical and they become happy when you’re happy. If you set up a proper wish list, they’ll start purchasing gifts for you. If it’s something like underwear and you wear it for them on stream or in a private session, they’ll really feel that connection.
You will, without a doubt, be showered with compliments and praise throughout your streams. This will make your confidence soar as you start to feel great about yourself.
And with higher confidence comes more comfortability which means better performance overall, which is a win for both the model and their clients.
You’re in control
No matter what platform you’re on, you get to control your pricing and who gets to interact with you. If someone is being a bully, ban them. That’s it. You don’t like it, give them the boot.
If you don’t want to do something, you don’t have to. Everything you do is because you want to do it.
Drawbacks of Being a Cam Model
It’s a lot of work
As previously stated, if you think you’ll start making $10k a month your first month you’re mistaken. It’s a lot of hustle and grind to get to that point. You’ll need to diversify your income streams and start producing great content to reach that point.
High highs, low lows
Don’t expect your new monthly high to be your new normal. So many factors affect your earnings, many are outside of your control. Always save a sizeable portion of your earnings for those months that just don’t go as planned.
Being exposed is inevitable
Even with the amount of privacy and security settings like not allowing the cam to be viewed in certain states and countries, people can still record your stream to upload to porn sites. You should go into this expecting to be found out eventually. All it takes is someone that knows you to travel and feel lonely for the word to get out.
If you can’t stomach the thought of your friends or family knowing what you do, get the idea of doing this out of your head.
If you make it, it’s there forever
Everything you put on the internet lasts forever. There are models that went live one time, their stream was recorded, and no matter what they do and how many DMCA requests they send, it’s on the internet forever. All it takes is one person to have it downloaded for it be back into the world.
Those are some of the pros and cons of working as a webcam model. If you don’t mind being in the adult industry, it’s a great career choice that has the potential to earn for years to come. If you’re interested in starting now, you can try Chaturbate out which is free to start and perform on.
