There are several things you should do before you click that “Broadcast” button for the first time. I am going to tell you what worked for me as a successful cam model of many years.
The very first thing you should do is think up a character. This is going to be who you are on cam. This is the time to think about what you are willing to do on cam, how you plan to entertain your audience, and pick your screen name. This is going to be important when you are setting up your space, investing in your equipment, and choosing a site to work for. When creating your character, make sure it is a persona that fits you. Do not try to be a character that is not close to who you are as a person. Your audience will know. So if you are not into Dominatrix, than don’t be a Mistress. Then create a Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, and as many social media sites as you can keep up with.
There are a few pieces of hardware you are going to want to get. A computer, a webcam, lighting, a USB Hub, a wireless mouse, and a wireless keyboard. A simple lamp will do for starting out. Logitech is going to be the best bang for your buck as far as hardware is concerned. They make great equipment for a great price. My wireless mouse, keyboard, and webcam are all Logitech. For the webcam, I use a C920. If you decide to do split camming, make sure you use two different cams, like a C920 and a C922, so the computer software does not think they are the same cam. You shouldn’t do this until you are comfortable with technology and the website you choose to work on. The USB Hub will come in handy if you are planning to use teledildonics.
Teledildonics are toys that many camgirls use to encourage tippers. When they tip, the toy reacts with vibrations. I highly recommend getting the Lovense Lush and make sure you buy the Donggle with it! You cannot use it on cam without it! I promise this toy will pay for itself the very first day you use it! I also recommend getting a suction cup dildo. Guys love blowjobs! If you want to be more reserved, get the Lush and a bondage kit with handcuffs, ballgag, and a whip. This will give you some games to play without having to get naked. If you are non-nude, get a deck of cards or whatever you will need to entertain your audience.
Consider your character and get clothing to match that persona. If you’re sweet and innocent, get nighties, oversized button-ups, tiny shirts, long socks, stockings, sexy bras and panties. If you are a Mistress, leather, latex, and thigh high boots. I find corsets in red or blue, netted bodysuits, and thigh high stockings to be the most popular outfits when I cam.
Now for your space. It should be neat, quiet, and spacious enough to keep all your cam items nearby in case you get a request and so you can perform for your audience. You will also want to make sure your computer is hookup to a hardline and not on WiFi so make sure your cord can reach. You are now ready to cam! Or are you?
