Why is it important to be different from the others?

 

The title above sounds like a cliché, but with the advancement of information technology, it is becoming increasingly important to be able to stand out from the crowd.

Imagine that you are in a bar, looking at the men or women there. Who will catch your eye first? Somebody who is dressed best but very much like all the others? Or somebody who is elegant, taut and trim, and has a magnetic personality that you can sense even from a distance? Obviously the latter.

 

Now imagine the same with the clients on a page like Streamate, where tens of millions look at the profile pictures daily, and the client can see up to 15 pictures at the same time, or look at your stamp-sized photo from half a meter on their phone.

Let’s take it step by step: the first and most important is to raise the client’s attention with your picture. If you can manage this, it’s half a victory. Some basic advice here:

After having uploaded your profile picture, check it on your phone and not your computer, as the majority of clients also uses their mobiles.

So, consider what you can see from your photo on a phone, and if you are not satisfied with the result, take another picture and upload it again.

 

In small-sized pictures, everything looks smaller, so make sure not to place objects or captions in the centre of the picture, as most probably, the majority of clients will not see these.

As opposed to other platforms, Streamate provides you with more freedom concerning your profile picture: you can tastefully add texts, or modify the tone of the colours to some extent to make you stand out even more.

You are not required to show your face in the picture, but obviously, this is what most clients would like to see. And of course, the rest of your body. This is where it gets tough. You should be creative and find an angle that lets you make the best impression.

 

The client clicked on your profile picture? Here comes the hard part. One user spends no more than 3 seconds in your chat room on average. This is how long it takes for them to decide whether they like what they see or not. How can you show everything in 3 seconds? Some tips:

It is no coincidence that we do not recommend photoshopping the profile picture. If the difference between your picture and the camera’s is too big, the client will not even spend 1 second in your room. Find the right balance between what looks good in a picture and what you can pull off in a live video.

 

 

If, for example, you are just looking up from your phone when the client joins, that will take up all the 3 seconds. This is why it is important to always be active, and rather spend less time online in the beginning, but be focused throughout.

Some clients have been around at Streamate longer than you, and they know exactly whether someone is streaming from home or from a studio. Wherever you are working from, make sure to have something unique in your room and your appearance. You can reach the best results if this uniqueness matches your personality. If, for example, you throw some clothes on the bed, it will not necessarily look untidy, but it might arouse the imagination of the client.

 

A beautiful face might catch the client’s attention for a couple of moments, but will they come back to you every night just for that? You can significantly increase your chances if you communicate with the client, either via chat, or, more importantly, orally. You don’t know what the client would like to see? It is so much easier to find out if you ask them!  Would you like if everyone entering the room instantly felt the good vibes? This, too, is much easier to achieve via communication. For a start, choose a topic you are interested in, and just start talking about it in the chat room. The others, seeing your passion, will join you.

After getting to know what methods work best for you in keeping the attention of the clients, you can already start thinking about what to change. Whatever was interesting in the first 10 minutes can become boring later on. This is why you have to constantly change your performance. Of course, you can use outside help for this, like using a fortune wheel or a similar tool, something that helps you choose the next part of your performance.

 

But enough of the theory, try yourself out in practice! Experiment with the tips above, keep whatever works and lose what doesn’t. Keep changing!

How To Evolve And Become A Successful Model

The first question that every girl in this business would like to hear the answer to is: how to become a successful online model.

Well, I can tell you for sure that it will not be easy to become successful, without putting a consistent effort to improve every aspect of yourself.
When I first started, I remember very well that I was not giving my best and I only wanted to make easy money.
After seeing the financial potential that this business had, I immediately started to take it more serious.
Soon I realized that I was doing too many mistakes and now I was finally eager to learn more about this business.
All this happened along 7 years of hard work and involvement, until I finally reach my goal: to become one of the most successful webcam models on the website.

How this process actually took place? Well, first I started to pay more attention to the members and what they were actually looking for and adapt myself after each one’s needs.
I was friendly and polite with every user who joined my chat room, but in the same time I remained funny and surprising, which always make them come back for more.

Many models recommend sticking with one niche and I clearly don’t argue with that, but personally I didn’t focus on a single one.
I’ve always tried to adapt after each member request, by becoming the girl next door, glamorous for others, sophisticated, attractive, dominant or sexy for others.

Another important aspect is that you will need to get creative and constantly search out for new ideas.
If you work in a studio, ask the models you work with what are the most requested things that they are receiving from their members.
What do users like to see, what new toys or lingerie is on the latest trend? And don’t forget to ask your members what are their personal preferences.
Always remember that one of the best things you can do is to improve your online image and communication skills. And never be afraid to accept constructive criticism.
Becoming an online model is a challenging yet rewarding career and in order to become successful you will need to constantly grow and evolve in a better version of yourself.

HOW TO PICK YOUR OUTFITS

I would first suggest to take some time before going online and check  yourself  in front of the camera, just to make sure that you are dressed as best as possible.

When you’re starting your session, always make sure you have a variety of clothes so that each time the members will be surprised by your new look.

For example, in one day you can chose to be an elegant woman, by wearing long gowns with beautiful accessories that would make you feel like a Hollywood celebrity. Whenever you feel that users are getting bored, I would suggest making a fashion show, by changing your clothes more often and transform the entire online experience in a spectacular vogue event.

 

What you need to remember is that even if you choose to wear a basic outfit, like a home pajama, you always need to make sure that it looks hot and eye-catching for the members.

Getting too outrageously dressed is not always the best idea. And I will exemplify this by telling you how I still vividly remember when once I adopted an unusual outfit: I was wearing a bra without cups, had scotch tape on my breasts, plus a garter belt and stockings to match. I was different than how I usually looked and the vast majority of users simply avoid joining my private session.

Be prepared to expect the unexpected, because simple ideas can help you succeed in unpredictable ways.

And I will illustrate this when I took my fluffy bath robe and fully covered myself in a way that my skin would almost not be visible. Can you guess what happened next? All the users in my room were instantly amused and in the next second, a couple of them joined me in private.

You’re now probably getting the picture that how you dress has a major impact that will be reflected on camera.

Feeling confident in your looks is a highly erotic aphrodisiac. If you feel good about yourself, it will easily turn on the members and make them addicted to come back for more.

Always remember to keep your audience entertained and I guarantee that you will be successful as a webcam model.

How To Make Sure You Do A Great Performance?

Being a cam girl can be such a great and fun journey. However, just like any other job, making sure you’re performing at your best is crucial. Every model who first starts off doing cam sessions should always make sure they give the best performance in front of the camera. After all if you’re not giving it your best, why should any viewer want to come back?

 

One of the easiest and most effective ways to help you ensure your performance will be great is to START RECORDING YOUR ONLINE SESSIONS – this is the best way to check yourself and see how your members perceive you.

 

As you begin your working day hit the recording button. After you finished your shift, check your recordings. Now be honest with yourself, because there is a high chance that your performance can be dramatically improved. Do this throughout the day, by changing your routine as you go along. Continue to record your online sessions and watch periodically what details require new changes. This practice should help to improve the parts that you are not doing great and lead you to become an excellent performer.

 

If you are a part of a studio or cam group, discuss with the managers and even the other models what input they have about your current shows. Sometimes you’ll receive constructive criticism, which can be difficult to hear at times, but try to learn from their advice, because that’s what is going to help you in the long run. Share ideas whenever you can with other models. Some of the the girls may know something about the niche you are trying to adopt, that you never thought of. It never hurts to learn the hidden secrets that other performers are using.

 

Another way to improve what you do is to discuss with your members how they perceive you. What do they like about you that other models don’t have? What would they like to see you do more often? Getting input from your viewers can be highly valuable, because you want to always make things fun for them. So make it a game and offer a reward if they play along. Receiving constructive feedback from your customers will offer you a better way to improve your personal brand.
