In today’s economy, having multiple streams of income is an absolute must. Fortunately, camming provides a range of passive income opportunities to supplement your streams, namely clip selling. Many popular cam sites even host galleries where models can sell videos or give them to deserving viewers, so loading yours up with clips can give you an edge over models who don’t.
You may feel a sudden impulse to go out and buy a high end camera to film your videos now. After all, that’s an ideal investment! But starting with what you’ve got, which is more than likely your webcam and cell phone, is an equally legitimate move. Upgrading your equipment is part of the journey, so don’t be discouraged by other models’ high quality clips!
You will, however, need a solid video editing software to process your videos, which are relatively easy to obtain online or in your local electronic store. There are a ton of them out there, so make sure to choose one that suits your budget and needs.
While you are editing, ALWAYS make sure to include a watermark on each video. Watermarking your content is crucial to building your brand and becoming a recognizable model on the net, especially when reuploads by ill-meaning customers is a serious issue in our industry. This can be as simple as writing your name in your favorite font or creating a unique logo for your brand.
Once you upload a clip to your preferred platform, create a concise and effective description and title so your viewers know exactly what they’re getting. This is a great opportunity to show off your interests and create varied content to wow your audience! You might even get custom requests from viewers who want to realize their fantasies with you!
And now for the difficult part: pricing. “Know your worth” is an empowering slogan that’s thrown around nearly all freelancing circles loudly and proudly. But, as you’ll come to find, this can sometimes be easier said than done. While I can’t exactly provide a perfect formula to determine a clip’s ideal price, there are some major factors to consider.
For every hour of filming, expect an equal amount of time editing. Time, as we all know, is money. You’ll also want to take into account the type of content you are filming. Is it a custom video? Is it a fetish outside your norm? Were there costumes, props, or toys purchased specifically for the clip? Some customers will request a “rush delivery” on a custom video, which might warrant an extra fee.
No matter how you decide to price your clips, always make sure your method of delivery and the customer’s method of payment are both reliable and safe. If you are just starting out, stick to well-known adult-centric platforms that guarantee your safety as well as your customer’s. You may gripe over not getting your 100% now, but the cut they’ll take is definitely worth it. If you are approached with an unorthodox payment request by a prospective client, stand your ground. It might be tempting to accept their offer, but you never know what their true intentions might be. Every cam model, including myself, has their own story about getting scammed for content, and the consequences can be serious. Don’t let yourself be one of them.
No matter how you go about selling your videos, as always, have fun and be safe! Videos are an excellent way to connect with your audience’s deep, personal fantasies as well as showcase your own. You’ll find that making sales in your sleep isn’t too bad either. Make sure you read our post about the best cam sites to work on.
