What do you need to work as a camgirl?

Getting started as a cammodel is usually quick and easy. When you register with a webcam website your account is usually ready to go in 12 to 24 hours. All you have to do is get everything you need and you’re good to go. But what do you really need to work as a camgirl? These are the absolute necessities you’ll need.

Getting started as a camgirl, the necessities:

A fast and stable internet connection

This is the most obvious one. You can’t work as a camgirl without an internet connection. A fast and stable connection is what you’re after. If you’re sharing an internet connection with family or house mates it might effect the speed if everyone’s using it at the same time.
If you’re in a hotel or use a public wifi network it’s most likely too slow to use for camming or for uploading any content. Also bear in mind that public wifi is not secure so your passwords / camfeed etc could be seen or hacked by others on the same wifi conntection.

Laptop or computer

An other obvious one. Without it you can’t do camshows as a smartphone won’t be compatible with the camsite software. However, if you don’t own a laptop or computer you can still make money with just your smartphone.
Here are 4 ways to make money with your phone.

Photo’s and videos taken on smartphones are good enough quality to sell on content websites. Customers actually prefer to buy amateur style videos. So if you don’t have a laptop or computer you can still earn money selling videos.
Here are the best and easiest websites for selling videos.

A valid photo ID

Everyone who wants to work as a camgirl needs a valid photo ID. Every website will ask you for a picture or scan of your ID. Cammodels show explicit footage so websites are legally inquired to make sure all cammodels / adultworkers are at least 18 years old.

An HD webcam

If you want to get started as a camgirl you’ll need a webcam. A build in webcam on a laptop is not going to work. The quality will be too low and you won’t be able to change the angles with it.

Invest in an HD webcam. A good HD webcam costs about £25 and you’ll earn it back on your first day. Also, your webcam is a business expense so you can write it off.

Make sure your videofeed is good quality and there’s plenty of light in the room. Think of it this way, would you pay to see someone sitting in a dark room with a blurry and grainy cam feed if all other camgirls on the website offer better quality for the same per minute rate?

Lights, lights, lights!

Get a desklamp, put a bright bulb in your ceiling lamp, maybe get some fairlights to make the room look cosy (and lighter!). Light makes all the difference. It really improves the quality of your camfeed.

Camgirl toys

You can of course get started as a camgirl without any toys. But a webcam model without toys is a like pizza without any cheese. It’s not the same and most of your customers will probably feel the same. You don’t have to get the biggest and most bizar toys. Just pick a few toys you’re comfortable with. Realistic looking dildo’s usually do really well. And from their side of the screen they can’t really see the size. If you play with the angles a little bit you can also make small toys look much bigger.

So pick a toy you’re comfortable with and if they ask say it’s bigger than what it is. Does the trick. Or if you’re going for the “shy girl next door” type you could say you’re still a virgin and you can’t take anything bigger (yet). Your customers will probably love that.

Light circle

This is not a necessity to work as a camgirl and you can do without. But to me it makes all the difference so I had to include it. You may have seen the smaller light cirlces you can attach to your phone for perfect selfies. But you can also buy big ones for camming and filming. Lots of youtubers use them. It makes me look fresher and not going to lie here… a few years younger. I feel more confident as cellulite and little imperfections no longer show on cam.

And of course the light in the room improves your cam feed. The video quality looks so much better just by adding extra light. I feel this really helps to bring more customers.

Splitcamming software for camgirls

To me this is an absolute necessity. But if you’re new to camming you might want to work a few weeks before giving this a try. But I just had to include it. It can literally double or triple your income. When you use splitcamming software (I use ManyCam) you can broadcast your camshow on multiple camsites at the same time without having to use a second laptop or webcam. So if you can work on 2 or even 3 websites at the same time, you’ll obviously make more money. You can read more about splitcamming in the “Splitcamming for cammodels” article.
