Hello. My name is Violet and I’m an experienced cam girl who wants to tell you how to start your first broadcast on Chaturbate. Not long ago I knew nothing about the world of adult webcams and I know how that feels, so sit back, relax and keep reading.
Right now it’s easier than ever to become a webcam performer. Chaturbate is one of the most friendly and easy to use cam sites I’ve worked with and it would be my choice.
How to start your first broadcast
To start your first broadcast on Chaturbate, you should do a few things beforehand. The first thing is to verify your account. If your account is not verified, you will not be able to earn money so create your account and send the documentation required by Chaturbate to verify your account. We explain the process clearly here.
Once your account is approved and verified, click on “Broadcast yourself“. Once there you must grant access to your webcam and microphone. You can mute the microphone if you wish, although it is obviously not recommended.
Modifying video settings is also possible just by changing the resolution. Normally, the higher the resolution, the lower the framerate. It is desirable to have a high enough frame rate that allows watching the broadcast without annoying cuts. Try several settings until you find the best compromise. I can’t tell you what parameters to use, as the quality of the broadcast depends largely on how fast your computer is and the speed of your Internet connection.
Once you are online, it is time to change your Chaturbate broadcast name. To do so, click on your room’s title just above your webcam picture. Choose an attractive name that will encourage new visitors to enter.
Finally, choose apps and bots to help you on your channel. We have tutorials on how to set them up here.
Public or private chat?
To become a model the first thing you have to do is to decide what type of shows you wanna make. You can work in free chat, private chat or both. Depending on the one you choose, you’ll have to work more in one type of chat than the other.
Before commencing, you should have already the required equipment. A proper HD webcam ( not the one that comes with the laptops ), a good broadband connection and a decent computer. Laptop or desktop? It’s always better a laptop because it gives you mobility and it’s more comfortable.
I think right now, generally speaking, models earn more money in free chat. That’s because you get a bigger audience and you can earn more money from many different customers, although it will be smaller quantities than if you were working in private chat only.
If you are new to this, I recommend you to work in free chat mode. Private chat is often reserved for gorgeous women and for those who are willing to pay an extremely high price to enjoy a few minutes of pleasure.
So unless you are an extremely pretty girl with lots of experience, forget about private chat only, and focus on free chat, and if someone takes you to your private room, consider yourself lucky and make the most of it.
Free chat also gives you the chance to build your personal list of regular customers more easily, because you’ll be more accessible to the site’s customers, and trust me, there are LOTS of customers out there. If you wanna try free chat, Chaturbate is a great choice. Click here to sign up.
To build a great list of regulars is very important to broadcast at the same hours, five times a week, at least. The first days are always the tougher ones because nobody knows you and you have to increase your reputation. Be known is half of the success. And to be known you have to put on good shows for the audience.
“Spy” the other girls.
So, what to do in free chat? Well, just take a look at the other performers to find out. Do things you feel comfortable with and twist a bit what other performers do.
Once they realize this job is for them, some girls invest in sex toys, new outfits and things that will make their audience drool. Most performers just masturbate or fuck on their shows, and that’s nice, but if you can give it your personal touch, you’ll have the edge over the others.
Listen to your audience too, maybe they can come up with some nice ideas. Ask them what they want to see.
Customize your room
Make sure you customize your room using the apps and bots available. Apps and bots are great to ease your life. There are lots of them available and can help you to create a fun room. There are games, leaderboards, private message notifiers, you name it.
Once you click on the app you want, you can customize it. Don’t be afraid and experiment with them. I recommend you to use the filter and select the most popular ones.
Every performer has a way to earn money. Some models like to play games with their audience, like the wheel of fortune and that engages them even more. It’s fun for them and for the performer. Other models just chat with the audience. Make your mood visible and let them know what you want to do that day and set a price for it, and don’t work if you feel tired.
Use your imagination
And last but not least, one thing that can help you to stand out from the rest is to pick up a role. Pretend you are someone else ( a nurse, a mistress, a college student, a sexy doctor, flight attendant ).
The options are almost limitless. Many customers appreciate that kind of effort on your part, and it’s likely they’ll reward you accordingly. I’m not saying that you should do this every day, but on special occasions can be quite fun and convenient.
