You’ve heard the stories of webcam models making thousands of dollars from the comfort of their own home.  You’ve heard how easy the work is; just buy a webcam, flirt with customers, and watch the paychecks come in.  Simple, right?

The stories of webcam models making $1000 a week are true, but at what expense?

Here’s what you’re not being told:

No Profit Work Days:

The first couple of weeks for webcam models are often the best.  New models start off with a promotional period where their profile shows up at the top of the profile list.  This gives them maximum exposure and more paying customers – often translated as a “beginner model’s luck.”

However, after this promotional period, some webcam models find it harder to get paying members.  All of a sudden they find themselves competing with more models which can lead to more free chat with less pay.

This can be frustrating for any webcam model.  It’s important to understand that you will have good days, as well as bad days. There tends to be a cycle of paychecks — in a good week you’ll make over $1000, but the next week you might only make $300-$400.

Having Your Photos Online:

Once you upload your photos online, you’ll be online forever.  Even if you decide to give up your webcam modeling career, there’s always a chance that somebody saved your photo to his computer and posted it somewhere online.

There have been cases of camgirls and camboys being unable to get a job because somebody had found out they were a webcam model.  In fairness, 99.9% of the time your photos will never come back to haunt you, and there are some precautions you can take.

Some webcam sites such as Livejasmin and CameraBoys give you the option of blocking entire countries from viewing your webcam.  And if that’s still not enough, you can just only upload photos that don’t show your face.

Before becoming a webcam model, ask yourself whether you’re willing to take the risk of someone finding out how you’ve been making all the extra spending money.  Webcam modeling jobs do pay incredible salaries, but they also come with a certain risk.

Working Late Hours:

Most visitors surf for webcam shows after their family has gone to bed.  There are exceptions to this rule, but most webcam models agree that the busy times are evenings and nights.

This might be an insignificant downside of the job depending on your current schedule, but keep in mind that your sleep cycle might get a little messed up as you find yourself staying up later and later in order to make more money.  As you continue “staying up for the last show,” your desire for money might come before your need for sleep!

If you still think you have what it takes to become a successful webcam model, then this really can work for you.  There is a bit of a learning curve for new models, but if you put in the required time, you can be confident that you too can have a successful career as a webcam model.
