Filling out your bio is both the hardest and easiest part of setting up your profile. It can be as simple as saying hello and as hard as filling out, for a lack of better words, a sales page selling yourself.
That seems to be what some models get wrong. Instead of trying to sell their show, products, and additional services, they don’t use this space to its full potential. This is one of the greatest ways to sell what you have going on, from your tip menu to other ways your fans cans shower you with gifts and money.
In this article, you’ll learn all of the things you can include in your bio to get the most money from your fans. We’ll also include some bonus keywords and phrases that make your patrons pull out their wallets to make it rain!
Again, your bio is a sales page and should be treated as such. The words written in it are called copy. Not like plagiarism, but in the advertising sense. You should also try to keep your language conversational like you’re interacting one-on-one with a fan. There may be a chat room, but to most viewers, it’s seen as a one-on-one session.
Everything in your biography should have a purpose. For the most part, you should be trying to get them to either spend money or follow your profile(s). You’re not going to get them to take any action if you don’t tell them to. This is called a call-to-action: the desired result you want them to do.
Those are the bare-bones basics. Tell your customers what you want from them, then tell them how they can do it.
The basics to include in your webcam model biography
Here are some of the basics most models include in their biographies. Depending on the platform you’re performing on, you may not have the option to include some of these options.
One thing I strongly encourage is to not try to skirt around the rules of the site you’re performing on. Even if you see other models bending or breaking the rules, don’t think you’ll be lucky as well.
Note: You don’t need all of this on day one. Don’t get stuck in the planning phase: go live and perform!
Draft a write-up about yourself. Be flirty, just be sure not to include too much personally identifiable information.
The tip menu allows you to showcase exactly what you’re willing to do and for what price. This is standard amongst models throughout the industry. Ensure this is up to date with any apps or bots you have running as no customer wants to feel like they’ve been bait’n’switched. Your call to action can include things such as
- an affiliate link so you can earn more for purchases if your platform allows it
- if your platform doesn’t allow affiliate links in your biography, just use language that gets them to
- sign up
- spend money
- and keep coming back for more

See it live now is your call to action, by now is one of those psychological tricks because it sounds like buy now.
Your social links are your tier 2 ownership of your audience. Tier 3 being the platform, tier 1 being your own website and customer Rolodex (email addresses). By including your social media links, you can drive your fans to other offers or platforms you’re on.
You can easily get away with the basic “follow my X account” but that’s so generic most people expect it and don’t bother. That and they have their IG, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, MySpace, etc. Instead, go for some mystery and only include the platforms you’re most active on. Does anyone like following an account that hasn’t posted in 6 months? Don’t promise anything you’re not willing to do. If you don’t respond to @’s, don’t say you will.

Do’s, don’ts, hard limits
This counts two ways: what your viewers are allowed to do and say & what you’re willing to do outside of your tip menu.
When it comes to what you want your viewers to not do, the sales aspect goes out of the window. Be very clear in how you want to be treated. Don’t leave any space for a gray area. Include exactly what you plan to do if they break those rules. Could be a warning, temp ban, or permanent ban. Don’t compromise.
If your platform allows for additional money-making methods, be clear about what you’re willing and not willing to do. You may be able to do commissioned videos. Set hard limits on what you are not willing to do and don’t compromise.
You may see some popular models with elaborate biographies with graphics and parallax and tip kings. In time you’ll have that, so don’t think you need that to be successful.
Hell, go look at the top 10 models on the front page of Chaturbate right now. Check out their profiles. We’ve seen models with over half a million followers with no bio! Obviously, that’s not recommended but it goes to show that a bio is 100% necessary to be successful.
