Let’s talk about your photos, time, money, and marketing. Get these four tools into your webcam modeling arsenal, and you’ll be another four steps ahead.
Let’s face it, selfies leave much to be desired. Nobody likes to see your camera in the picture or your arm reaching out in front of you.
Camgirls need to keep their profile pictures updated and the best quality that they can muster with the tools they have.
If you have an HD camera, set it up on a stand or a tripod and use the self-timer. This can take some trial and error if your aim is as bad as mine lol.
Another great tool is your HD webcam. Your built in webcam software probably has an option to snap a picture. Mine gives me a 3 second countdown so I can get into a natural looking position.
If your webcam software doesn’t give you a countdown, my favourite alternative is WebcamToy. Not only does it give you that 3 second countdown, but it also gives you a bunch of filters and special effects to play with. I recommend keeping your main profile picture natural and unfiltered.
How to Take a Super Sexy Profile Pic
If you decide to make webcam modeling your primary source of income, time management will be an important skill to master.
RescueTime is an app that runs in the background and analyzes how you use your time on the computer. You can set the productivity score for different sites; for example, you can tell it that when you’re using your cam site of choice you are being Very Productive. They have a premium version and a free version. I’ve always used the free version and I’ve never felt the need to upgrade at all.
Over time you’ll start to see trends in how you spend your time, and you can make changes if you need to. Knowledge is power, as they say.

3. YNAB (You Need A Budget)
You’ll have the potential to make a lot of money if you’re camgirl material. Before you go celebrate with a shopping spree though, install and start using some budget software.
You Need A Budget is my favourite by far, and it doesn’t even work like other budgets that make the word “budget” sound boring and tedious. YNAB’s method revolutionized my finances and I recommend it 100%.
This is the only tool I’m recommending that isn’t free, but they do offer a ton of free training as well as a free trial of the software on their website.
You can totally use the method without the software, but the software does make it easier in my opinion.
