Also, often no tipmenu, whiteboard not even a roomtopic. Should I just tip and see how she reacts? Give me some info what you're willing to do. Some guys are just shy and prefer to use whiteboard/tip menu instead of asking.

Make lots of smaller tip options, so those with less tokens can participate too. Can be a simple "you're cute", a single spank, a 'blow kiss', etc.
Hi Makko, long time, frequent MFC member here. If you aren't aware, the lowest amount you can tip with a note is 5 tokens. So, many times I will enter a room and tip 5 tokens with a greeting to the model. I also have the chat room commands option enabled, so I don't have to use the tip interface, and will do something like: /tip -s 5 :wave Hello Modelname

If you're limited to smaller token amounts, can tip 1 and then follow it up with a greeting on a separate line. I've found that most models are happy to receive even low tips, and are more likely to greet someone as they come into their room. Some will even say if you're a new tipper and hope you stick around and enjoy. Though, there is the rare model who has it setup they won't accept under a certain amount, which I think does more of a disservice than benefit (they might be a findom though).

Tip menus can be good. But, I really don't do much with them myself as I rarely tip for specific things like flashes, etc. as I'm more one who tips various amounts with different tip notes. Especially if I have come to know a model. But, I've never seen a model who does not appreciate a 5 token tip with a note saying she has a great smile, etc so long as one isn't rude or demanding of something. This holds true for models I've interacted with from the very top models all the way down to those with under 100 cam score.

While some models may show more attention to what appears to be the biggest tipper, or a very select group of tippers. Typically this is because said member is more than likely a regular member in her room who tips on a somewhat frequent basis, so there's a bit of a member/model history. It doesn't necessarily have to be huge tips, or amounts. But, it is very common for a model to give a little more attention to those who actively show appreciation by tipping. At the same time, if no one in the room is interacting with a model, then someone comes in and has an ongoing conversation with her who's fault is it if it seems like said member is getting all of the attention? One of the things many models here talk about is boredom and how creepy it can be to have multiple people in the room just watching and not interacting. Some have said that they've attempted to ask questions, do something, etc to get some responses or even a 1 token tip and no one does anything. The members just sit there.

Sometimes it's impossible for a model to keep track of people entering/leaving her room if it's busy or she's in the middle of a show. I think this should be something a member can understand. But, I do agree it's nice to be greeted when you enter a room. Again, best way I've found this to happen is with a small tip with note as I mentioned above. Same with when I leave, I will typically do a five token tip with note bidding the model and the room a farewell. I'll usually wait a few seconds for replies, then leave. Common courtesy is all.

More often than not, I've seen issues with members coming from the lounge. I've been in the various lounges, and the reputations it has are quite fitting. Many members are hateful towards models, mocking members who tip ("What a dumbass, he's just dropped a lot of tokens on her. I'd never do that!"). Yet, some even know if said tipper is a regular and on average how many a person tips. But, I do get where you may be coming from in that it might draw one or two tipping members in for the show. So, most models just ignore the lounge.

While you do have some valid tips and perspectives, it's also good to have an understanding on why a model may do what they do. Especially since MFC is such a large place, and each member may have a different perspective and experience. Like you, this isn't meant to be a know it all contradiction. It's based off of my experiences with many different models over many years.

each member may have a different perspective
Oh I'm very much aware of that. I've seen people who just come in to get some sexual gratification and others are totally in love with their model and can't stop tipping and admiring her. I mostly like to hang out in a friendly models place, talk a bit with her and the regulars. So those points I made were mostly from that standpoint.
Tip menus can be good. But, I really don't do much with them myself
I admit I'm a bit shy myself and mostly rely on tip menus. But sometimes I ask her what things she likes to do from her menu as she may not be into some things that day.
I've been in the various lounges, and the reputations it has are quite fitting
I mostly stay in the Lounge when waiting til my favorite model comes online. The 1k Lounge is really not that bad and haven't seen that much bad model talk there so I mostly stick to that one.

That's actually good advice. Yesterday I was in a room for the first time and though there were only 3 other people, I was ignored completely and left after a few minutes. I'll try to do what you said in the future.

Hi I'm new here and have some tips from a Member's perspective. Please don't see me as someone who think he knows it all. Just some of my observations while using MFC on a daily basis. Use them or don't. :)

Out of interest, I sometimes scroll down to the bottom of MFC and most of the time it's very obvious why they are there. Looking bored at the screen, playing with phone, camera pointed at boobs (hey I like boobs, but face is quite important). Then when I enter, either I'm being ignored or I'm bombarded with requests to tip (often through pm's). Both are equally annoying.

Also, often no tipmenu, whiteboard not even a roomtopic. Should I just tip and see how she reacts? Give me some info what you're willing to do. Some guys are just shy and prefer to use whiteboard/tip menu instead of asking.
Make lots of smaller tip options, so those with less tokens can participate too. Can be a simple "you're cute", a single spank, a 'blow kiss', etc.

Make a nice, interesting profile picture/avatar. People DO scroll down and if it looks good, it may bring in some people. Don't be afraid to sometimes replace it. Those that like you, already bookmarked/follow you.

Give attention to everybody that comes in, but with multiple people in the room, don't focus too much on one person. Else the others will feel neglected.

Even if you're bored out of your mind, keep smiling, do something like dance or tease. Even if you have zero people in your room, you may stil be watched from the Lounge or preview (that little camera on your avatar).

People like to be recognized and acknowledged. If someone tips you, say his name, like "Thank you Joe!"
If you get a more regular tipper, welcome him into your room, like "hi Joe, nice to see you again". You could even write down some stuff about them, like if he said he needs to go to the dentist, next time, you could ask how it went.
You make two strikes here; You have something to talk about and he's happy that a beautiful woman actually remembers him.

The Lounge doesn't have a very good reputation, but it is visited by a lot of people. Often it is the most visited room. It wouldn't hurt if you post yourself (using a premium member account) when you're about to do something interesting.

NEVER ask people to tip! It really makes people feel uncomfortable. But you can always point them to the tipmenu/whiteboard, or say something like 'anyone wants to see my boobs? or "I have this new toy and I really like to use it today guys! Sometimes we just don't know what to tip and this surely helps.

If you sign off or go for a private, mention it in your room. Just leaving without saying goodbye is concidered rude and unpersonal.
This was actually incredibly helpful! Appreciate the input from a members perspective and it most definitely has got me thinking, I mean it only makes sense to see what the MEMBERS and TIPPERS themselves are wanting and like and dislike! I think I am gonna try and make a point of asking the people in my room every once in a while :)

Hi all, first post here! I'm going to start camming in the near future (within the next couple of weeks hopefully.) I've been reading about it a lot and watching free cams on these sites to get an idea of what it's like. One thing I'm still confused about is private shows and how that all works. I'm talking about chaturbate and mfc specifically. How do profit from that, do you ask them to pay a certain amount of tokens before entering private chat or are they supposed to tip you while you're in private? And what exactly are you supposed to do in private, I know it depends on the model and the customer but I mean... generally speaking, do they expect you to do something you wouldn't do in public chat or what is the point?

Sorry for the stupid questions, but I would appreciate any insight very much! I've never been doing this before so it's probably going to be a bit overwhelming in the beginning, that's why I'd like to know and understand as much as I can before I start.

Rates vary. On CB, you can set your token amount per minute. On MFC, it's predetermined and cannot change it. When members run out of tokens, the private ends.

As to what you do in a private, that varies. Some models are still non-nude but will dance or tease. Others will go full explicit. All depends on what you are willing to do both in public chat and in private. Some models are relatively mild in public chat and explicit in private. I've known some models for a number of years, and sometimes it's more of a shoot the shit time than it is playing.

There's some good threads here that cover a lot of different topics, including some of what happens in threads. Highly recommend going to the "Ask-A-Model" and "General Camchat" sections for some ideas. There MFC and CB specific areas might provide some insight as well.

On Chaturbate when you accept a private you automatically receive tokens from the member in 10 second intervals. They don't show as tips but your overall token amount will increase. Some models will ask for tips before privates for certain certain things, especially if they are using a lower token rate.

Generally it's best to ask people who request what they are looking for in pvt, so you have an understanding about what it is they are looking for it will allow you to make a decision on whether or not it's something you can and are willing to do. People will definitely ask you to do things that you already do in public anyways, but sometimes people just like the idea that they are getting something exclusive, and some also like their privacy, and on CB at least they can get a recording of the pvt if you have that feature turned on.

Thank you so much, ForceTen and Nigerian Prince (never thought I'd thank a Nigerian prince lol) it makes a lot more sense now! So it sounds like privates are a good way to generate income unless you have a room full of tippers. Is there an option for the customer to also have their cam on during a private?

Another thing, not so important but I'm just curious, I've been checking out a lot of tip menus on different models' bios just to get a sense of the average pricing for things and to get ideas. What does it mean when someone lists a tip price for "pm"? I understand pm to mean private message (please correct me if I'm wrong!), but in the context of tip menus, does it mean the customers have to tip in order to be allowed to send pm's to the model? And if so, is the price usually for just one pm, or for the rest of the session, or forever? Also, when a tip menu says "song request", does it literally mean just that or are you also supposed to dance to the song or something else?
(I know I don't have to put those specific things on my own menu, I'm really just curious.

I don't know about MFC, but in CB there is no built in option, so most customers open up their cam in their own room and have the model join it to see them.

On CB only certain members can initiate PMs (which you should ignore unless tipped for), so 9 times out of 10 a model has to send them the first message and then the private messaging is unlocked. Usually people do it for the rest of the session, but you can decide to limit that if you want which some do. PM's are annoying/disruptive a lot of the time so just keep that in mind when pricing them (also you don't have to allow PMs at all).

For song requests it's usually just to play a song, how you react to it is up to you. I've seen some models have separate tip options for song request and song request + dance/twerk.

Ok now I feel I'm being a little dense but how will I earn if I join a customer's room?
Thanks so much for the replies, I really appreciate it!

I'm not familiar with CB that much, as haven't been there for a couple of years (I'm a member, btw). But, on MFC, yes there's options for members to turn their cams on. They don't have to be in a Pvt to do it. Some models will have a C2C option to view while in public chat (usually it's just a minute or so). In private, most models tend to ask the member to turn cam on if they want and include it in the private.

As to price for PM, on MFC, typically this means the member will tip to be put on the model's friend list which then allows the member to PM the model (this is set in the user setting). Some models charge on the lower end for this, others might be as much as a few hundred tokens. The models I interact with will keep you on the friend list so long as your active, respectful, etc. But, if the member gets to be unruly in PM or take too much of her time she will remove them after giving a warning.

Song request is usually just a song request like calling in to a radio station, play it in order if queue exists. Or, if none, play right away. Most models will have an additional item for dancing, usually this will be where the member can pic the song.

Ah I did not realize you can be in multiple rooms at once!
In CB : what happens exactly is that you can have one window on your room, broadcasting. And you are free to open another browser to watch your viewer's room. The only difference between a viewer and a broadcaster on this site is the 'tip' button you have since you've been age verified.

On his side, he will certainly do the same (hence he can need time to arrange windows on his screen in way to see both).
His interface is exactly the same than yours as a broadcaster, usefull to know if he has some tech problems
He can also put on a password to forbid anyone but you to watch his cam, and usually will post it to you before opening his room.
This is done the same way that you can do it, in his "Settings & Privacy" Tab.

The price is not automatically linked to c2c, but you are free to ask an extra tip for c2c (cam to cam). It's not so common to ask an extra but it happens.

Good tips. Thanks
But personal story, I got banned from MFC for wearing a mask with a costume, after I think 1 or 2 years of wearing, even though I sometimes didn`t wear so it was really easy to see I was the same person and it didn`t say in any of the rules not to wear. Bare in mind, not a full face mask, an eye mask. Got a warning, then I started wearing glasses, because I wear a lot of costumes and mystery and domination is part of my role play and then got banned, without an answer nothing, ever. So I don`t know about the rules. Is the only site that banned me, while other girls that work at studios wear masks all the time. Plus I am on 10 other sites and none has ever had a problem with masks and role play with the people that are already verified.

Which rules are okay to break?
MFC very infamously does not enforce the majority of its rules. This can lead to confusion about which rules are "okay" to break and which are not.

In general, these rules are fairly strictly enforced and breaking them will most likely result in getting a warning or your account being banned:
♥ Men on camera for any reason.
♥ Sexual relations with men, even off-camera (in the same room while camming).
♥ Minors, children, babies; may not be on camera or in the same room.
♥ Bestiality, or animals/pets on camera in a sexual or provocative context.
♥ Illegal drugs, or drugs that may be perceived as illegal in other locations. (Pot does not seem to be a bannable offense)
♥ Rape (most host websites like MFC, C4S, and others, will not allow simulation of rape to be displayed)
♥ Incest (sexual relations involving family members). [This includes incest role-play and fetish grey areas such as Daddy dynamics]
♥ Violence, blood, torture, pain, erotic asphyxiation, or any actions associated with bringing harm to yourself in any way (many models engage in, and totally get away with, mild to moderate sadomasochism, without blood play)

The following rules are sometimes enforced and sometimes not enforced, but you should probably play it on the safe side:
♥ Menstrual bleeding.
♥ Breastfeeding or lactation.
♥ Unauthorized persons (persons for whom we do not have proper name and ID on file.) - I have had female friends on cam with me for hours with no issue; other models have had their accounts suspended almost immediately for someone briefly coming on screen.
♥ Sleeping, "passing out". (I can't remember the last time I heard of someone getting in trouble for this)
Hypnosis (lol wut?)
♥ Discussing or arranging prostitution or escort services. (you can probably get away with it)
♥ Urination, defecation, "going to the bathroom", enema play, vomiting. (on the riskier side)
♥ Penetration of the vagina or anus with items not meant for sexual stimulation (e.g. bottles, baseball bats).
♥ Fisting.

The following rules are almost never enforced or are literally never enforced:
♥ Excessive consumption of alcohol or other legal or prescribed medicines or narcotics.
♥ Illegal or unsafe activity of any kind.
♥ Actions that may be deemed obscene in your community.
♥ Masturbation, penetration, using sexual toys or devices, cunnilingus, or other hardcore sexually explicit activity (in public chat).

A grey area:
♥ Public shows (shows where you are in a public location such as a library). Even though they involve illegal activity and often have strangers, including men, on cam, they do not seem to be in the red zone.

Those ones are all pretty heavily enforced. Don't try any of them.

This is not even a rule at all anymore. It was removed years ago.

Yeah I saw the thread was started in 2014. But most of the rules are still the same. I just want to say that there is no rule against wearing a costume, which I did and got banned

hey thanks, yes I got first a warning. Plus I did not wear it all the time, just in some nights and did not tell members I will take it out in private. Plus that was the kink and the members loved it. playing cat woman or other things. And after the warning I just started wearing sun glasses and not big black ones but transparent, small ones.

Here's the direct link to face on cam: https://wiki.myfreecams.com/wiki/Rules_for_Models#Face_on_camera

I know a couple of models who were eventually banned for not showing their face on cam. They were given a warning, and when didn't comply they were banned.

Hi hi,

I'm new to this forum and quite new to cam modeling and couldn't seem to find the topic in my preliminary search, so I figured this would be a safe place to come to next.

I've been on MFC for a little over a month and it's been great - I have a decent, consistent following and I have also been successful with skype shows. I started skyping with one of my MFC regulars about a week ago, and he loved it so much that he wanted to do the same time every night for a few days following and has been showering me with tips. It is now to the point where he is wanting/expecting to skype with me at the same time every night and it is starting to become a girlfriend experience, which I am NOT comfortable or okay with. I'm trying to figure out a way to properly communicate my boundaries with him without completely alienating him as a follower. Any advice would be much appreciated and my apologies if this topic was covered in another thread that I could not find!! :)

Princess Leia. She was so old school that they might have made special arrangements for her. One of the few NA models on MFC before I started there!

I am seeing more and more often lately that ladies who do not have verified model status are coming to ACF looking for help. While there are guides and resources in the model's section totalling hundreds of thousands of words, this isn't very useful for someone who has to wait a few days to see them. In an industry where many newcomers are hoping to make cash in just a day or two, this is hardly helpful. So I thought I would put together a new guide in the public section with some handy info!

There are a lot of links in this post to model's only posts for further reference, but hopefully it will still be helpful to people without MO status.

If any of you ladies ever get verified model status, there is a lot of new info to comb through.

As this is a public forum, I am going to predict that in the comments, there will be a lot of people who disagree with a lot of what I share. From the rules that are enforced to how hard a model has to work to make good money, people are going to disagree and cite proof to the contrary (whether or not they have cammed a day in their lives :p). However, it would be silly to try and write a guide to the exceptions of commonality. I believe that this guide is accurate for the majority of new models.

For new MFC models:

If you are planning on camming on MFC, you NEED to understand how the camscore system works. I do not believe MFC is a good site for beginner models, which I argue in this post. If you are interested in camming as a career and want to take a more serious approach, I would highly recommend you get experience on a website like Chaturbate before you make the switch to MFC.

MyFreeCams FAQ:

What is the camscore and why is it important?
Camscore is the default ranking system for all models on MFC. In the webcam sex industry, default ranking is extremely important. It does not guarantee minimum earnings, but it is a great predictor of how much traffic a model will get - which she can then translate in to earnings (read the model's only stickied post on "being realistic about what a high camscore will get you"). Basically, camscore is how many you tokens you earn per hour, over a sixty day average. The more tokens you earn per hour, the higher your camscore will be. What other models on the website make influences how many tokens per hour you need to maintain a camscore of 1000. Nothing else contributes to your camscore. Ratings/admires do not count. Friends list adds do not count. Small tips do not lower your camscore. Offline tips do not help your camscore "more" except by improving your token/hour ratio.

How long does New Model status last and why is it important?
New Model status (NMS) is a short period of time where new models on MFC are listed with a bright yellow tag on their avatars. Typically, new models receive a great deal more traffic than they normally would. It is commonly considered that NMS is critical to make or break your camming career, and if you waste that time, you will have a more difficult experience on MFC. Many models are surprised and upset when their NMS wears off and suddenly, instead of 100 people in their room they are seeing 5.

New Model status on MFC used to last for ten broadcasting hours. Now, members choose how long they see models as being new (3, 7, 14, 30, 60, and 90 days). At the time of this post, members being able to rank new models as they choose is a new feature and it is yet unseen if this will make new model status less important or not.

Which rules are okay to break?
MFC very infamously does not enforce the majority of its rules. This can lead to confusion about which rules are "okay" to break and which are not.

In general, these rules are fairly strictly enforced and breaking them will most likely result in getting a warning or your account being banned:
♥ Men on camera for any reason.
♥ Sexual relations with men, even off-camera (in the same room while camming).
♥ Minors, children, babies; may not be on camera or in the same room.
♥ Bestiality, or animals/pets on camera in a sexual or provocative context.
♥ Illegal drugs, or drugs that may be perceived as illegal in other locations. (Pot does not seem to be a bannable offense)
♥ Rape (most host websites like MFC, C4S, and others, will not allow simulation of rape to be displayed)
♥ Incest (sexual relations involving family members). [This includes incest role-play and fetish grey areas such as Daddy dynamics]
♥ Violence, blood, torture, pain, erotic asphyxiation, or any actions associated with bringing harm to yourself in any way (many models engage in, and totally get away with, mild to moderate sadomasochism, without blood play)

The following rules are sometimes enforced and sometimes not enforced, but you should probably play it on the safe side:
♥ Menstrual bleeding.
♥ Breastfeeding or lactation.
♥ Unauthorized persons (persons for whom we do not have proper name and ID on file.) - I have had female friends on cam with me for hours with no issue; other models have had their accounts suspended almost immediately for someone briefly coming on screen.
♥ Sleeping, "passing out". (I can't remember the last time I heard of someone getting in trouble for this)
Hypnosis (lol wut?)
♥ Discussing or arranging prostitution or escort services. (you can probably get away with it)
♥ Urination, defecation, "going to the bathroom", enema play, vomiting. (on the riskier side)
♥ Penetration of the vagina or anus with items not meant for sexual stimulation (e.g. bottles, baseball bats).
♥ Fisting.

The following rules are almost never enforced or are literally never enforced:
♥ Excessive consumption of alcohol or other legal or prescribed medicines or narcotics.
♥ Illegal or unsafe activity of any kind.
♥ Actions that may be deemed obscene in your community.
♥ Masturbation, penetration, using sexual toys or devices, cunnilingus, or other hardcore sexually explicit activity (in public chat).

A grey area:
♥ Public shows (shows where you are in a public location such as a library). Even though they involve illegal activity and often have strangers, including men, on cam, they do not seem to be in the red zone.



MFC requires a lot of personal legal info to sign up. Can I trust them?
In short, yes, you can. Hundreds of thousands of models have signed up with MFC and I have never even heard a rumor of MFC leaking or spreading the info of models. It may make you uncomfortable, but remember that if MFC was not a legit site, they would not require so much information to verify you :)

How much are tokens worth?
Every token is worth $0.05 USD. If you earn 20 tokens, you earn $1 USD. If you earn 2000 tokens, you earn $100 USD.

Members pay at least $0.0675 per token, and usually as much as $0.08 cents.

How much money can I expect to earn on MFC?
This entirely depends on you. Some models make very good money from the get-go ($100+ a day), while many others never seem to do well. It has been estimated that the highest earners on MFC make at least five digits (USD, not tokens) a month. There is more discussion about actual number amounts on this thread.

I have estimated, and never heard an argument to the contrary, that the majority of webcam models earn around $10 or less per hour. On MFC, the vast majority of models make less than $20 per hour. For many women, this is not enough to offset the inherent dangers of the job.

WHERE IS MY MONEY?!
♥ If you get paid by check: It can take up for 3 weeks for your check to arrive in the mail. This is, IMO, the worst payment option to select.
♥ If you get paid by direct deposit: It takes 2-4 days (usually 3) for most models to receive direct deposit payment. Remember that if the 1st or the 16th of the month lands on a weekend or holiday, your bank will take extra time to process the payment. Therefore, sometimes it can take up to 5-6 days for your entire payment to process.


Making money: why should anyone give you money?

This may sound a little mean, but don't take it personally.

Why should anyone give you money?

Women are not deserving of money just because they have tits and a vagina.

You are not going to be the hottest woman on whatever site you join. You are not going to be the most interesting or have the best body. You are not going to fill a niche market that nobody has thought of before. There are going to be twenty models online at any given time who are better looking than you and who will give it away more cheaply than you.

If you think you are going to join a camsite and succeed just because you were the prettiest girl in high school, I'll see you when you quit three months from now.

Models who are the most successful and make the most money are the ones that work the hardest. They work hard to make it look like what they are doing on cam is effortless. On MFC, they are the ones who have 14 hour work days and never take days off or have vacations. (Although I know of more than one model who works so many hours a day, it is interesting that many members do not believe this is true)

If your plan is to join a camsite and earn $50 or so a day; yes. You can do that with not a whole lot of effort, and probably not a lot of hours! But if you are hoping to make hundreds a day, then get ready for long months of tears and sweat. The simple fact is that the only thing which will differentiate you from the crowd is how hard you are willing to work. I have only heard of one model, ever, who made very good money without putting hard work in - and this was a second hand story :) Here is another way to look at it: I have been part of ACF for about 18 months at the time of this post. I have spent many hours of my life reading the stories and daily thoughts of other models. I have never ever in that time ever heard any model ever say, "it is so great that I make so much money with so little effort!". Ever. Yes, models who work hard do often enjoy periods of ease where their online shifts seem to flow easily and they don't have to "hustle" as hard, but that is always broken up by periods of hard work and difficulty. It may not be the hardest job in the world (I certainly do not believe it is), but you still have to work hard at it.

If you don't want to work hard, you can still make money. But you won't be making amazing money or even especially good money.

Advice to new career cam models:

I started another thread in the model's only section and got a lot of responses for the top advice veteran models would give to newbies. Before I put in their responses, here is my best advice:

Think about how you want to cam when you are successful. What do you want to be doing?
Do that starting on your first day on cam.


If you envision yourself as being the perfect non-nude model, then don't start off doing public cumshows because you don't know how else to increase your room counts. Likewise, if you envision yourself being a posh and exclusive model, don't sell your shows and content for ultracheap. If you want to be an easy-going low-key model, don't build up a posh and exclusive room and then expect everyone to be okay with it when you suddenly change your style.

Start camming with your eyes on your endgame. It's the best way to avoid big mistakes and to not get in the way of yourself.

Now, other the advice of other ladies!































Three common MFC scams

♥ "I'm an MFC admin and I need to speak to you on Skype." He's lying; report him.
♥ "I'm very experienced at watching other models be successful, and if you Skype with me I'll share their secrets with you." The best he will do is share common info with you that anybody could figure out. There are no "secrets" to being successful at camming.
♥ Fake tips: On MFC, when someone actually tips tokens, a ringing sound plays and the color behind the member's name changes to be yellow. It is common to scam new models by typing "has tipped 100 tokens!" or by posting an image which appears to be a legitimate tip.

How can I be successful on MFC?

♥ Price yourself according to what you are worth. This may sound mean, but be realistic about it - few models are worth 2000 tokens for a shot of vodka, and few models are worth $100 to take their shirt off (with a bra underneath, of course!). Don't worry with your prices being cheap if you are making an overall amount of money that satisfies you.

♥ Get on cam at the same time every day for 3 hours. Do not take days off. Do not get on late. If you get on early, stay till the end of your shift. Granted, very few models actually do this... and very few models are at the level of success they really want.

♥ Don't freak out. Any camscore above 1000 is great. When I started on MFC, I was happy as long as my camscore stayed above 1k, and I was able to put in more hours and make more money overall because of it. Don't stress out over a bad shift or two.

♥ Make and sell videos. Get online with a goal; get online to work. Keep in mind what members want to see - just because something is fun for you does not mean it is fun for the men who pay your bills. When you get online, you should be ready to work and geared up with things to sell for members who are interested. Getting online just to hang out because it's fun (and it totally is fun!) is not going to help your career any. Hang out in a member's room, work in your model's room.

♥ Smile and be happy. It is amazing how long you sometimes have to look on MFC to find a chick who looks like she wants to be there. Be the woman that looks like she wants to have a good time.

Alternatively, read this thread to learn success skills for MFC!

(Readers et all: I unfortunately did not have as much time to work on this guide as I would have liked. I hope future readers will add their two cents and extra help in the comments!)
omg this post is so helpful thank you so much... I am new to the cam world, I have been camming on CB for two months now and have just signed up for MFC but have not broadcasted yet, does your new status start from your first broadcast or from the day you sign up?
🙂

This is one of my favorite threads that I've stumbled across so far on this website - I am constantly referring back to it when I need a refresher and it has helped me so much!

I am still very, very new, so take this with a grain of salt, but...

I'm 99 percent sure I got this tip from somewhere in this thread (but I could be wrong, and even if I'm not, there's a ton to sift through) but incase anybody else is starting out on Chaturbate like myself, one of the most helpful things I have done is broadcasting in a private/passworded room so that I can check my stream (using my phone or another window) for audio/cam checking, and getting used to the bots and apps. I had assumed up until very recently that I could only configure those things while I was live and it was incredibly stressful.

hmmm wondering if anyone has advice for how to do this on MFC? maybe i've missed it somewhere but i would love to know how to check audio levels/feed quality instead of guessing or asking my members how the quality is.
