TIP #1

Start selling audio sex stories on Chaturbate

audio sex storiesThe great thing about being a Chaturbate model is that you get to earn passive income while not online by selling your own pictures or videos. Therefore, you can make money, even when you’re sleeping. Nothing wrong with that. But you can earn even more passive income by selling 10-15 minute audio sex stories. All you need to get started is a headset with a microphone and a wild imagination. Tell your fans about some of your wildest fantasies, or share some sex confessions about your wildest tryst.

Your fans will love being able to sit back, slide on their headphones and play your MP3 sex stories. The secret sauce here is audio quality. The clearer your voice is, the more fans will keep coming back for more.

And why stop at recorded stories. Why not sell sexy wake up calls on Chaturbate? Bet some of your fans would gladly part with some of their tokens in exchange for a hot 15 minute wake up call from their favorite webcam model.

TIP #2

Invest in a better quality microphone

Webcam Model MicrophoneWebcam sex is a multimedia experience. Don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s all about the visuals. Sound matters – a lot. When you combine great video with clear sound, you deliver a better user experience which in turn will result in more tips.

The Blue Yeti USB microphone or Samson Meteor Mic USB Studio Microphone are high end devices that are great at capturing quality audio. Not only will they allow your viewers to hear you better, they’re also perfect for recording sexy audio stories (see tip #1). Yes, they are somewhat expensive, but top performers on Chaturbate know that investing in better hardware is often a key strategy for driving higher earnings going forward. Just remember to make your new microphone the default audio input device in your system settings.

TIP #3

Invest in a better quality webcam

As mentioned earlier, combining great video with clear audio can be the difference between being an average Chaturbate model and being a top earning performer.

We really like the Logitech C930 webcam. It features superb, high resolution video with built in hardware compression. The latter really matters, as it offloads the H.264 video encoding tasks from your computer processor, resulting in better quality video on slower systems.

TIP #4

Invest in some nice diffused lighting

It might seem OK to you, but what you see and what the lens of a webcam camera sees are two very different things. Let me share a secret with you. Viewers on Chaturbate are more likely to click on preview thumbnails that feature well lit video streams.

So do yourself a favor in 2016. Head off to your local IKEA or even and get yourself a couple of nice lamps that offer diffused lighting. You don’t want direct lighting as it might overexpose your webcam feed, which would result in an unpleasant experience for your viewers. You ideally want light that is diffused with a shade of some sort, or even better, a professional umbrella lamp that you can find at your local photography supply store.

TIP #5

Upgrade your Internet Connection

Nothing turns off a Chaturbate viewer faster than slow, stuttering video. Problem is, as consumers, we tend to focus on download speeds and not upload speeds, which are the ones that really matter.

Download speeds are important when you’re pulling in video from a broadcasting service such as Netflix. But when you’re performing on Chaturbate, you become the broadcaster. That means that the focus turns to upload speeds. Research all of your local internet providers and compare which service offers the best combination of both upload/download speeds. Even if the service offering superior upload speeds is more expensive, chances are that the better video quality will result in more viewers, which we all know means higher Chaturbate earnings.

TIP #6

Start building a social media following

social media for webcam modelsEyeballs are the currency of the internet. The more viewers you have, the more money you make. It’s important to remind viewers to hit your follow button as much as you can, but it’s also important to create a Twitter account and encourage your viewers to follow it. Why? Because once you have a sizable following on Twitter, you can leverage it to sell other products such as offers from adult dating sites with affiliate programs. And guess what, when they sign up with these subscription services, you earn recurring  commissions every month they remain a member. How sweet is that.

But it gets better. You can also sell Tweets on services such as Fiverr to promote other people’s products and services. And don’t forget your picture sets, videos and audio stories. You can remind users of new additions via your Twitter feed.

And why stop at Twitter? You might also be able to earn decent income by setting up a YouTube channel and sharing your daily musings or even relationship advice. Point is, being a webcam model is a very social endeavor, which affords you a unique opportunity to build a sizable social media following. Built it, grow it, then monetize it. Before you know it, you’ll have built an income generating machine that may well generate as much earnings as your live cam shows.

Just remember that social media feeds require regular updates to remain relevant. Make sure that you can set aside an hour every day to update your various channels with new content. And be visual; pictures attract eyeballs, and as I stated before, they are the currency of the Internet!


Chaturbate continues to offer a great platform with many tools designed to help webcam models increase their online and offline earnings. For existing models, I hope that you’re 2016 earnings exceed what you’ve earned this year. For those of you thinking of becoming a professional cam girl, Chaturbate offers a great opportunity to earn a very decent income.
