The saddest truth is that everything has always (and forever will be) revolving around dollar bills, cash and promising wealths – in one word, money. Trust me, the camming universe is no exception to that – on the contrary, it symbolizes the virtual place where you can get attention and friendship for 500 tokens. But online relationships with the people who visit your chatroom are much more than just that. If you don’t treat them like genuine relationships at all, you might find yourself in a place where you will get bored and hate your job. In the end, aren’t heartfelt conversations and bonds at the heart of camming?
Being a cam girl might press you towards treating your members and regulars like breathing credit cards that you have to catch. There is no shame in that, since at the end of the day it seems logical to act just like that – more or less, that is your livelihood.
Beyond the hundreds of tokens
Camgirls can act like entrepreneurs, in the sense that they aim for the highest payers who frequently or handsomely tip and mostly focus on them. There is no lie in the fact that it is a smart hustle to target the people who are able to provide camgirls with a consistent income. But it is more about the feelings and bonds that you can create, whether of admiration, of friendship, of lust or of love – do not treat it like a business of exploitation.
If you want to cherish your career as a camming model, both on a personal and professional level, remember that no member will be satisfied with you receiving generous tips but not giving anything in return. They are looking for entertainers, friends that they can tell everything to, trustworthy confidants, unforgettable affairs and a whole slew of other things. Best part about it? You have the skill set to walk in the shoes of each and every character they want. That’s where the fun and outrageously high earnings come from.
Emotional investment in online relationships
Let’s get real – if the members wanted to hear a sharp-tongued and salty “I am good, what about you?” they would have picked up a random girl on the street. So that’s where you enter the scene – they come to your chatroom, full of hope that you are going to give them much more than that. Therefore, a “How are you” or “What’s your sign” will never do the trick.
Treat members as the friend you love going to lunch with because your conversations are beyond entertaining and fun. Get to know them, be their friend, ask what makes them most happy or what was their biggest disappointments – might be a clique, but small things count. Despite being founded on an exchange of attention for cash, you small talk with someone because tipping puts them on the map, but you continue to build the bond because something ‘clicks’, doesn’t it?
It is a piece of cake for an outsider to consider members the victims of some vultures who only want to drain their bank accounts. But if you lift the veil of camming a little bit, you can see that smart cam girls truly appreciate their members for who they truly are, not only for what they can offer. Once you realize that genuine bonds and relationships won’t only lead to money but also personal growth and happiness, there is no going back.
