One other thing I had intended to say but forgot, which still might be relevant to others here because so many women in sex work have higher ed degrees and enter the field because of debt, is that another option when things get desperate or you just need a change, is to enter a non-profit or volunteer organization internationally in an area of your interest. International tutoring (particularly teaching English) was already mentioned, but one can also join the Peace Corps, environmental groups, organizations that help put in clean water or teach health care practices (including safe sex practice to prevent HIV spread), Habitat for Humanity or other housing for the poor, etc. etc. etc. In the US I know there is also a strong demand in various hard-to-staff, very urban or very rural areas, for teachers - all the more so if you already have a degree and teaching experience, in programs such as Teach For America. Non-profits such as these may be poorly run or sometimes do more harm than good in their region,so of course you want to research thoroughly beforehand to make sure it is a good fit and an organization with a good reputation. But they also can get you out of your own head, help you feel needed and useful again, help you engage with a community and actually try to solve problems. Most come with either steady pay and good benefits, or a low stipend but free housing and some medical care for emergencies. I guarantee you all will involve you having adventures, learning things about yourself, and meeting kind people who will be good for future networking, and bolstering your resume for future job options. Sometimes they will train you in an area you have no previous experience in, help pay off a portion of student loans, or pay for all or part of a new degree.

So while not perfect, getting yourself involved in non-profits in regions of high demand can take care of your emergency financial needs, often give you a roof over your head, and make you far less likely to be rejected because they need help so badly - especially if you apply to several at one time so you increase your chances. Many might take 1 in every 3 applicants, versus 1 in every 300 or something like that for for-profit companies.

For anyone reading this who is broke, and broken, considering suicide or intentionally getting on heroin because survival is much too hard... joining a non-profit and moving for a year or two to be of service in a hard-to-staff location might be a life-changing thing that would really give you purpose and direction again. But these jobs can be draining at first, so you MUST get yourself at least stable before applying, if you are highly suicidal, or drug addicted, etc. But you can often take your pick between climates, continents, countries, and to an extent fields... and in the US there is need I know in places as diverse as remote Hawaii, remote Alaska, central plains states, West Virginia, remote parts of Florida, as well as urban centers such as NYC, Chicago, and L.A. And of course, pretty much anywhere on Earth that is recovering from a major natural disaster.

In some cases, if you are not too burned out from your hours at your new job, and are in a location with internet and laws that make such work legal, you can also continue camming in your spare time, so you can have both a steady paycheck, and that extra income so you can save up for whatever your next step in life will be. BUT read your contract carefully - some will have some kind of morality clause that will mean you can't engage in sex work on the side, and can legally get fired if caught. Some won't have any such thing. If you wear a wig or other disguise, and block the area where you are working, you're less likely to get caught.

Volunteering or non-profit work is a way better choice than suicide at least, and can make the world a much better place.

when i first started i tried several camsites: chaturbate, mfc, niteflirt, imlive, and finally settling on streamate. out of all five sites, streamate seemed to be the site i made the most on the same hours i put into the other sites. im not saying you will have the same experience as me, but i personally believe get your eggs in a lot of baskets first starting out.

definitely advise on getting verified here to help further. it would help knowing what your profile looks like if you want any constructive criticism. i suggest reading every thread you find useful. check out these two sites too: stripperweb and wecamgirls. two other forums with useful industry info and support.

i've been at this 5 years, and do very well on my site now. but there are days and weeks were i still struggle. there was also a time where i struggled weekly first starting out. it's not easy money like it looks. first starting out you have to figure out what makes your stand out. Is it a niche, style, personality, special talent, whatever? basically your hustle.

also start building up your social media following:

I debate trying streammate often but the payout is so low. I see so many girls say that they make better money there in less time and I’m just wondering with such a low payout how can that be accurate?

For me I've found more spenders and more traffic on streamate for sure. I looked at it this way. Would I rather make 60% of 5 dollars or 35% of 100$! And I can make money there in half the time of a token site!

I will keep this in mind. If things don’t come together on time I’ll move on over to streammate.

most of streamate's traffic comes from tubesites or other porn related sites like brazzers. so the guys are already horny and ready to go. don't be afraid to price yourself higher on streamate than you do on token sites. i advise charging at least $4.99 for premium and $5.99 exclusive when first starting out. dont be afraid to raise your rates. that 35% is a lot better payout the higher your per minute gets. not to mention the vibe there is a lot different. you can be more direct on people paying you for your services. and most members don't have any offline commitment expectations.

also you are covered from all chargebacks. you don't have to worry about big tips going away after someone tips you are large amount.

make sure to sign up here: streamatemodels.com. you get 30 days of new girl status starting the moment you first broadcast. you also get higher placement in the new girls section. remember to wait 30 seconds before anyone takes you private before you get naked. there is a delay before they get charged. some models require a tip first. i've seen $10 to $50. me, i just stall.

also they have a pretty sweet model affiliate program. if someone signs up with your link and spends on you, you get an additional 40% / 20% on everyone else they spend on. if you have any regulars on your social media, you can have them sign up through your cammodels link (yourname.cammodels.com), you'll get 75% total. you can also create your own whitelabel (cambuilder.com) where you get 35%, but you aren't covered from chargebacks.

edit: there is also no below the belt nudity allowed in free chat. which gives members more incentives to take you to private.

For me Streamate is a mystery. I never make money there. I heard is good and in time you do lots of $ but it's not for me. I donno why.

Tho i hate token sites, I'll stick to CB and MFC cuz there i usually make more than enough. Sometimes i try Bonga but the members there are too much into talking/PM and i mean they never ever stop, not even during a pvt. LOL.

No problem! Happy to help! Also profile pictures are key to luring people in. At first your profile pic when streaming will be set to your live feed. Contact support to ask for a static profile pic. I was browsing through your Twitter, and you have great perky big boobs. Not trying to be a creep, but use that to your advantage.

I was on two different sites at different times tonight for a total of 5 hours and I made 1.55$ an hour. This is the second worst night I have. It’s hard to be new, I know that. I hope for both of us that it gets easier. But it doesn’t sound like you plan to stick around, as a housewife who doesn’t need to work in order to have a place to live I had hoped to do this for a while and really go somewhere with it. I guess time will tell.
I just wanted you to know you’re not alone.

For me last night was good but i guess it's a matter of luck too, not only implication, room presence and etc. I stayed on CB for 1 hour and half and i got maximum 50-60 members and only 112 tk. I thought it's one of those shitty nights. And bang, a members comes in and start tipping only tips of 25, 50 and 100 tk. Lots of! After he
gave me over 2200 tk, he took me in pvt (for about 18 min). Not to mention when he started tipping in free chat, other members got involved and tipped me too.

So it's a matter of luck also.

Yes! That is amazing! I’m so happy to read a story with a positive turn around like that one.

Thanks a lot! It happened in the past too. But only on CB. MFC is not like that. On MFC the highest amount of tks received from a single member during a session was never ever above 1000 tk. I donno why but that's it.

I wish you luck and tons of tokens daily!

I totally understand. I've been camming for a couple of weeks now and am in this weird funk where I've been making pennies. There was an odd day (preferably Mothers Day) where I made a good amount on CB.

The odd thing is I noticed I make most of my money in privates at 6tks per minute. Yet I get soooooo tired doing privates and felt that that wasn't enough, so I raised it to 12tks. Now it seems like no one even flirts with the idea or requesting a private with me. I definitely get frustrated but I also like solving puzzles. I've just been trying to figure out how to make the next day better and what I could be doing to improve me and my clients experience. Very frustrating but I hope one of these days it clicks and I obtain better success than at my current state. :/

Hey :) I’m not sure if this is the case with you, but used to find privates really tiring because I was trying to entertain the viewer, do everything they request etc. I changed my approach and just go into the private with the attitude as if they weren’t paying - like it’s just something I’m doing for fun. A few guys will get annoyed I’m not a sex robot there to do their wishes, but most guys responded really positively as I acted like a real, genuine girl and only did things that turned me on ... and turns out they liked that. Now I don’t find privates tiring and make 85% of my money from them.

That's a nice way to look at things! I'm really happy with the two privates I did on Thursday. The first one was literally just me turning around and showing the client my body while they praised me. The other one was a guy that just wanted to get me alone to talk. We talked for about an hour and all I had to do was be myself and throw in some humor (which I do anyways in free chat). It felt like a dream come true, and I didn't have to compromise my pricing. :joyful:

Those nights are the best!

I also found Streamate easier to make money at when I was a new model. You don’t have to come up with reasons for them to tip like you do on Myfreecams and chaturbate. It’s straightforward - if they want to see more of you, they pay by the minute for a private show. ^_^

Now that I am more experienced, I like the freedom to do whatever kinda show that I want that I have on Myfreecams.

I'm so happy for you. For me, Streamate remains a mistery still. I can't earn tk there. The traffic in my room is poor and i get pvt very very rare. I donno hy but this is the reality.

Its takes time to get going on streamate. I would give it more time. It's not likely to just log In and make bank right off the bat. Takes some work .
