Webcam modeling is a relatively new online job opportunity.  Though not openly talked about on most “make money online” websites, the adult cam industry comprises a huge work-from-home community.  There are currently tens of thousands of live adult chat hosts (webcam performers) on the livejasmin site, and with literally millions of registered members, the webcam industry is showing no signs of slowing down.

The reason why many job-seekers look to adult cam jobs (either as a part-time or full-time job) is the same reason why anyone would start a small business: to make money. (Read my other posts, LiveJasmin Scam? and How Much Do Cam Models Really Earn to get a better idea of how much you could be making as cam girl or cam boy.)

Besides the high earning potential, here are other reasons why the cam industry is soaring:

It’s Exciting

Webcam models get a rush from their online work.  You’re in a room full of horny visitors that can see you, but you can’t see them.  Sure, you will have some annoying customers, but many of your chat room visitors will genuinely be interested in getting to know you as a person.  They’ll try to get your attention asking you questions, commenting on your looks, and telling you how beautiful you are.

Learn Valuable Skills

Just because you’re working online, don’t think that it’s not a real job (read my 3 Misconceptions About The Adult Camming Industry). Webcam modeling is a lot more than just stripping in front of your webcam.  The skills you learn from cam modeling can be applied throughout your life.  You’ll quickly learn that your monthly earnings are directly related to the amount of effort you put into it, which is why it’s so important to stick to a regular schedule.  In other words, your earnings are completely up to YOU. 

Take Charge of Your Life

Many webcam models enjoy a very comfortable lifestyle.  The freedom of setting your own schedule and never having to deal with a boss again is liberating.  Full-time models make wages comparable to that of company executives, while part-time workers can pay off college tuition and make some easy spending money by working in their free time.


So before you become a webcam model, ask yourself what you really want to get out of this.  Whether it’s extra spending money, a new career opportunity, or even just the thrill of running your own online business, cam modeling really can have a positive impact on your life.
