Have fun while you work!
In the world of couples webcam modeling, the potential for cam models to have fun and earn money together is limitless. It is a social and exciting job in which, as cam models, you are able to set your own hours and determine your own income. The most important thing to remember about a webcam job, is that you only get out of it what you are willing to put in. There are subtle tips and tricks cam models may use to enhance the customer's experience and increase earning potential as a couple.
Remember, a webcam job is extremely viewer/customer oriented. Therefore, with viewing quality comes more popularity and success. It is wise to invest in a fast internet connection (minimum of 450 kbps) and HD webcam. Your work area should be focused on you. This means a well lit, clutter free, inviting workspace will be far more aesthetically pleasing to a customer. Be sure to show up for work clean and well groomed with plenty of light on both cam models. Women may include small touches like painted toenails or jewelry to add interest to their appearance. Men may choose tight fitting, flattering clothing, or clothing that shows off an interesting part of their body (i.e large arm muscles or a tattoo). A lot of successful cam model couples include props and toys, which add variety to the types of shows that they offer. The more variety, the larger your pool of viewers. Props may include costumes or outfits that make you feel sexy. Many cam models also choose to include the use of toys that they are comfortable with. Always be open to suggestions concerning props. Not only will your interest in what your customers enjoy seeing make you seem like very responsive cam models, but it will also encourage viewers to return to your show. Between the two of you, make sure one another is okay with the props the other wants to use. Viewers can tell when one of you is not enjoying something.
The main goal of free chat is to make each customer feel as though you are truly happy to have them in your chartroom. Many clients are looking for a sense of some sort of personal recognition or connection before spending their money in a paid chat. Be sure to both greet each customer warmly as they enter your room and do your best to acknowledge and answer any questions you may be asked. Smiling and looking into the camera is extremely important. it gives the illusion of a friendly, one on one conversation. It may be helpful to increase traffic through your chat by putting the woman in front of the man. Not all, but the majority of customers are men who are looking too see an attractive female and will not be as focused on the man. Although you should both be involved in the chat, you can expect most questions and comments to be directed at the female model. It is also very important that you speak instead of type, to create a far more personal atmosphere. Always be positive, polite and flirty. It is usually good for the man of the couple to make sure to come off friendly and in a way "buddy-ish" with the viewers in your room. Some viewers may feel uncomfortable saying suggestive things to a women in front of her partner and enjoy being reassured that her partner is okay with it. Keeping a customer intrigued with you to the point of wanting more is your task. Avoid losing their interest by striking up conversation, be gregarious and avoid texting or speaking on your phone, which will distance you from the activity in your webcam chartroom. It is nice for viewers to see couples interact and say things to each other. Be sure to pay attention and address the room, but feel free to flirt, tease and joke with one another. Also, plan ahead to avoid frequent breaks. Keep water, snacks or a drink nearby and make sure that your props are accessible. Some webcam models choose to have music on during their free chat. If you choose to do so, be sure that it is not too loud so as not to distract from your conversations. Free chat discussions can range anywhere from what your webcam show offers in paid chat to small talk and the events of your daily life. Friendly, flirty banter is always a good way to engage the members in your free chat and makes you both seem less intimidating as webcam models to shy or new viewers. You may choose to flirt as subtly or as suggestively as you are comfortable with, but remember the objective of free chat is to excite and entice the customers into a paid chat. Either extreme can be detrimental. It is sexy and intriguing for viewers to see you touch one another or kiss passionately ever so often. Showing too much of your bodies or being overly explicit is essentially giving customers a webcam show for free. It is much better to "tease" viewers. Showing them just enough of your bodies, personality, passion for each other and wild side to leave them wanting more in the form of a paid chat. A balance between sexy, funny and friendly is usually the most successful. Keep in mind that is is also very important to be very clear in your profile and in free chat what you offer in private chat versus exclusive chat and what you do not offer at all. That way, any confusion is avoided once in a paid chat and there are no misunderstandings between the both of you and any of your viewers.
A paid group/private chat is a great way to earn money from multiple viewers at once. However, it is important to manage the requests of each viewer wisely to ensure satisfied customers and to avoid becoming overwhelmed by a barrage of suggestions all at once. Both of you need to be vocal about your plans to get to everyone's request. If you can incorporate a couple requests into one act, great, otherwise a first come first serve basis is usually the most fair. Although it may seem overwhelming, really try your best to let each customer know that their desires have been heard and seem enthusiastic about them. As a couple, you have the benefit of two people to keep track of each customers needs, making it easier to stay organized. You can choose to say things like "I can't wait to..." or "I am getting myself ready to...". The acknowledgement of their request coupled with an outstanding show otherwise, will certainly make it seem worth the short wait. If a customer becomes to pushy or insists that you must do something you are not comfortable with, try not to react negatively. With a smile, explain that is not something you offer, and make a suggestion to something along the same lines that you are more comfortable with. This is why it can be very important to be as specific as possible in your profile and free chat regarding the content of your shows. If a no-no is clearly listed in your profile, yet a customer becomes angry that you will not perform it for him, kindly point it out. Some people are purposely rude, to ignite an angry response or get attention. Do not get defensive over yourself or of one another. If both cam models keep their cool and retain their friendly personalities throughout anything, bullies usually become bored and either leave your webcam chat or stop their behavior. If a viewer is being persistently disrespectful to the point of which you cannot ignore them or they are truly upsetting you and affecting the others' show, it may be necessary to use the site's "block" system. Not to worry, though. You will find as webcam models, you encounter far more friendly, generous customers than the opposite. As far as specific, more fetish oriented shows, it is wise to consider only exclusive chats. If it is a somewhat general request (i.e wearing high heels, or thigh highs), many people can enjoy it and it will not interfere with anyone else's viewing. However something a bit more specialized or customized (i.e domination or humiliation shows, non-nude shows) may not be something for everyone and are best left for a one on one paid chat. As a couple communicating is the key to a good webcam show. Put a sexy spin on communicating with each other (i.e "I want you to..." or "I would rather you...") instead of stopping and whispering to each other. Not only will you both be on the same page, but viewers will enjoy how vocal you are with one another and chalk it up to great on screen chemistry.
Private chats or Exclusive chats are wonderful opportunities to provide customers with very personalized, more intimate shows. Before doing any of these shows, discuss beforehand what details you are each comfortable and uncomfortable with. That way, you will both have an understanding and be able to let people know exactly what you do or do not offer in private chat. It will also avoid confusion once you are in the private chat, which will be virtually impossible for the viewer not to notice. Because it is a one on one show, it is very important as a couple to keep the conversation and show interesting. Start off slow, getting an idea of what the viewer will enjoy watching. Make sure that you focus on the viewer's viewing pleasure more than your own agenda as a couple. It is important to enjoy each other, but be sure the viewer is never overshadowed. Ask questions, especially the viewer's name. Incorporating their name or nick name into your show can be very personal and exciting. Always keep in mind that they have paid the extra to have you two all to themselves, so your focus must really be on pleasing them visually in any way you are comfortable with. Be very attentive to anything they request or ask for, and always look into the camera at your viewer. Use everything you can to make them feel as though they are there with both of you and that their company truly excites you. Customers who choose a private chat are looking exactly for a very intimate, personal and custom show, otherwise they would simply pay less for a group chat.
It cannot be mentioned enough that webcam modeling is completely customer and viewer oriented. If you are able to remember your customers, you will go very far as a cam model. Take notes if possible, citing the customers name if it was offered up, or what they enjoyed watching or requested in your show. Make each other aware of these notes, in case one of you did not notice. Again, this is another situation in which two heads are better than one. It will make them feel very valued as a customer and keep coming back to your couple's show for more! Update your profile photos often, as this will draw old and new customers to your page. You may choose to focus more on photos of the female of the couple, but make sure you have plenty photos together in which both of you are very visible. Even when you are offline, viewers will be able to enjoy your photos and make it a point to see you two live. You may also receive messages from viewers. Subject matter may range anywhere from requests and questions regarding your webcam show to simple greetings and small talk. Either way, it is a wonderful opportunity to connect with viewers and create a following. Check in and say hello to customers who haven't messaged you in a while. Always sign your messages from both of you. They will find it thoughtful and bring your show back to the forefront of their mind. Always find a good balance as far as relationships with viewers. It is certainly important to make them feel a personal connection with them. However, for your own safety and to avoid any serious conflicts, neither of you should ever be giving personal information to customers or giving them false realities by saying things like "I love you" or indicating that you want to be in a romantic relationship with them. You will find that many customers message or provide their contact information without being prompted. If they become pushy about it, explain to them that you are easiest to reach through your cam site or that you are simply not comfortable with it. Again, if some one is disrespectful or overly persistent, they are better deterred by being ignored or being polite to. Try not to get too protective of your partner to the point of becoming angry with one of these types. Most customers will understand and be happy with the ability to communicate through webcam shows or messages on the site. It is really up to you to get the most out of the site as you can. Therefore, if you have any questions about how to use the site or things such as receiving gifts from viewers, never hesitate to contact the site for help.
