Splitcamming – Using Your Time Wisely as a Camgirl

Guest Author: Raven Winter

Working as a camgirl or guy is not like your average 9 to 5 job.  There is no salary or hourly wage.  Therefore, we have to make the most of our time while working in the cam industry.  Some days are super hot and tons of traffic.  Dead zones are there too when it’s like a ghost town.  We all know from experience, you can sign on one day and make $100 an hour and be done with your shift so fast.  Perhaps, you have an appointment for your child or with a doctor, so you log off and come back.  When you come back, nothing is happening.  I think we all know what I am talking about.  How about the days you log into your “main” site and you’re literally making $9.00 per hour.  This is part of our job, this is the industry.  We are commission based paid sex workers.  Let us find a way to increase your earnings.  I always say, “Work smart, not hard”.

So “splitcamming” is probably what you will want to do.

What exactly is “splitcamming”?  Camsplitting is using software that allows you to broadcast across multiple sites. Camsplitting is very commonly used on very new camming sites. That’s because these sites don’t have tons of customer traffic yet, therefore models will split and still perform on their other sites. Camsplitting software can also perform some other actions, such as watermarking.

You can split your time between websites.  Choices that are good are pay per minute sites, such as if you were to split cam.  I would choose Streamate and ImLive at the same time.  I suggest any type of sites that are similar.  I say Streamate and ImLive, or Cams.com because they are generally very similar.  These are paid private show sites.  So, by being online on all three of these websites at once, your increasing your numbers to get a paid show.  If one site or all three sites, traffic is lame, you now tripled your chances at making money and making your financial goal much earlier in the day or evening.   You could do MyFreeCams and Chaturbate at the same time.  They are also rather similar and work the same.  You can use the same games as your topic line on both Chaturbate and MyFreeCams.  Tipping prices can be the same.  50 for Ass, 100 for Tits, you know what you expect from your token rates, so by flashing on one site, you may excite the guys on the other site.  This I have actually experienced.  A member from Chaturbate will tip you for ass, and MFC is seeing it also, now a MyFreeCams member is tipping for tits. Since these are similar sites, you get the basis of my idea as far as splitcamming these sites.

For starters, you will need a quality HD webcam.  One of the most popular and suggested webcams is the Logitech C920.  I personally recommend it.  You will also need splitcam software.  You can download VerySoft Webcam Splitter.  You can download this for free, but you will need to pay for the full version.  It is only $19.99 for a license.  I have had my license for over 5 years now, used it on new laptops and no problems.  It was the best software recommendation by a community of other camgirls.

Other great splitcam software is ManyCams, SplitCam, WebCamMax, SoftService and XLoveCam.  I still prefer VerySoft.

These are the simple basics of running your software.  You now split your webcam.  Super easy, you can cam up to probably four different websites all at one time.  Now you are using your time wisely.  Nothing is more horrible than sitting in an empty chatroom.  At least if one of the sites you are working doesn’t seem to have much traffic pulling into your room, you can flip between window tabs on your computer and see what is going on on your other sites.

When first starting out splitcamming, I would suggest starting with only two websites.  You need to get used to integrating yourself streaming live in more than one place.  Like previously mentioned, splitcam similar sites.  As you get yourself accustomed to split camming, add more.  I have splitcammed on four sites at once.  Just be on your game!  Don’t forget to close out all of your other chat rooms in you get a paid show!  I think we have all accidentally done that.  However, this could lead to getting your account banned.  You can’t be nude from the waist down on some of the camsites, and others you might be giving a free show.  Take your time!

What Is It Like To Really Be a Camgirl?

Guest Author: Raven Winter

I can only imagine what people wonder about this question.  Well, I am not a full-time camgirl, however, I have worked part-time as a camgirl for several years now.  Personally, it is a fun job, it can make you feel powerful, beautiful and like a celebrity sometimes.

However, the fact is it’s just another job.  Also, it really depends on the girl herself.  For some woman, they last forever in the industry, others try it and really feel it’s not what they anticipated and quit.  We all have something different, but the same to offer as a camgirl.

Myself personally, well I am an older woman, so I fit into the “MILF” category.  My fans consist of mainly younger fans, I also have fans my own age and older.  However, in reality, I am an actual mother of three teenage children.  So this role fits me.  I am comfortable with what I do.

Camming isn’t really such a bad gig.  I always call this job, “The work smarter, not harder job”.  I can go online some days and make over $100 in an hour.  Does this mean this is the norm for every day? Absolutely not.  Sometimes, you may sit online for 3 hours and earn $35.00 between 5 websites.  The bottom line is that nobody ever tells you about this camming thing, it is a sales job.  You are earning a commission.  Know how to sell your brand.

The personality question?  This is a rather popular question amongst customers, fans and just some of us in general.  Does your cam persona and your real life personality differ or are they similar?  Myself, personally, I am my real life personality while live on cam.  I am a Jersey born and raised girl.  I am sarcastic, funny, goofy, nice and at the same time, I don’t take crap.  Because, if you choose to work as a camgirl, you will deal with a LOT of crap.  You will have freeloaders.  Freeloaders are broke men who want FREE flashes or kisses.  You will get trolls, who try to say you’re fat or ugly because they are on another side of a keyboard.  Guess what does this bother me?  Oh my god, please not at all.  I just ban and laugh at how pathetic you are.

This is perhaps a quick interview of what is it like to be a camgirl.  I will break down the facts for you.  You need thick skin, a good personality, and want to be your own boss.  Study the camsites, study girls who would be in your camgirl category, if you desire this way to earn income.

Quite frankly, I am 43 years old.  I am not ashamed of what I do, I enjoy when I am online camming.  I have always been open-minded sexually and not embarrassed or afraid of what others think.  Believe it or not, I have friends and family that I know this happens to be one of the ways I earn income.  Whether someone agrees with what I do or not, it is not up to them.  It’s up to me. It’s my life, and I am proud of everything I do.

I obviously can’t cover every aspect of camming in just one post.  However, it is just a fun job and if you’re afraid to show your privates to a paying client and get down and dirty in a private chat it’s probably not for you.  It’s just Internet porn and fantasy chat!
