Being a webcam model is a lucrative career, especially if you have a large fanbase. Some cam models are even earning as much as $6,000 a month from camming alone. But a cam girl’s income is fluid, meaning you can still earn more than that.
There are many other ways you can supplement your income. For example, you can sell feet pics or used underwear on various websites. You can also do date raffles and other contests for your fans. The sky’s the limit. You just have to be creative.
Many cam sites also hold competitions for models and amateur pornstars where they give out cool cash prizes to the winners. Participating in a contest can help you earn a little extra. It’s also an excellent way to gain exposure. The more people see you joining competitions, the more they will remember you.
So how do contests help increase your earnings, and what can you do to get you started with these competitions?
Increase Your Earnings with Camming Contests
Many adult websites run contests. For example, ManyVids held a Sexy Summer Look Contest where one vote was equivalent to $1. The 1st place winner took home a whopping $5,210. She ended up getting an anonymous vote worth $3,550 from one of her fans. Wow!
Joining and winning adult model contests can be just as lucrative as camming—no doubt about that. But you can’t win if you don’t have a loyal fanbase voting for you. More so if the contest requires tipping from your fans. We’re not saying it’s impossible. But it will be extremely hard to achieve such a feat. So if you want to get as many votes, the best way is still to build your fanbase and connect with them. Nurture your relationship with your fans and build personal rapport with them.
Another website known for running camming contests is Chaturbate, where they give as much as $11,000 in prize money. They award a $10 prize to the top cam model and $5 to the second placer every hour. It’s not a huge amount of bonus. But the contest refreshes every hour, so you get more opportunities to play hard and win.
Aside from the cash prizes, winners are also featured on their contest page. This helps drive more traffic to your room. And the best part is, this is just an added perk on top of your regular earnings on the cam site.
Tips to Help You Get Started with Contests
Contests are a way to make money. That much is true. But even if you have a huge following, winning will not be easy. After all, other girls with just as many fans—maybe even more—will be joining the same competition. So what can you do to improve your chances of winning? We’re glad you asked because we have the answers for you.
1. Join as many competitions as possible
Joining is always the first step if you want to win a competition. And while you’re at it, participate in as many contests as possible. The more competitions you join, the more chances of winning you have. If you see any contest in your network, sign up and join in. And whether the competition is for photos or videos, always give it your all.
2. Ask your fans to vote for you
Obviously, you can’t win a contest without a loyal fanbase. Or, at least, it’s close to impossible. If you really want to win, you need to appeal to your fans for their support. You can add a call-to-action on your shows asking them to help you win a certain competition. You can also sweeten the pot by giving them something in return for their votes.
3. Promote yourself
Asking your fans for help during your shows is a good start when joining competitions. But don’t stop there. Promote yourself and ask for support anywhere you can.
- Twitter. It’s not easy to build a following on Twitter, but it’s a great platform for disseminating information. Use it to ask for support from your followers. You can also ask them to retweet you so that you can reach a wider audience.
- Facebook. Use your Facebook fan page to ask for support for the contest you’ve joined. We’re sure your fans will be more than happy to help.
- Instagram. Instagram is another amazing social media network where you can reach out to your fans. Just make sure not to post any nudity, or you’ll get banned from using the platform.
- Reddit. Some adult subreddits will probably allow you to promote yourself and ask for support. Take advantage of that. But before posting, make sure to read the rules of the subreddit you’re in to avoid getting into trouble later on.
Joining contests can help you earn extra money. But let’s get something clear before we go. There’s no such thing as easy money. Even money won from competitions is hard-earned. You can’t expect to win a contest without putting your best effort into it. So whatever you do, whether that’s camming or joining a cam girl contest, always give it your best shot.
