If not, how can you acquire what’s needed in order to be successful? To answer these questions we are going to explore the different platforms of webcam modeling, what you need, and some tips to help you get started.

In order to get started as a webcam model, just like any other home based business; you need equipment. You will need the following items:

  • Electronic Device (PC, laptop, mobile phone or tablet)
  • A Camera
  • Additional Lighting (if necessary)
  • A friendly personality
  • Props (Optional, but very useful)
  • Before we continue further on how to start up your own webcam business; let’s discuss briefly about what to expect with cameras and electronic devices.

    Mobile Phones- Although web camming from your handheld mobile device is an option. If you are camming from your mobile phone please know that you WILL BE USING A LOT OF DATA this way. If you are going to use your mobile phone for camming make sure you have unlimited data and a 3G/4G connection. This will help your phone run at optimum speed and you won’t have to worry about an expensive cell phone bill every month. Another tip to remember while camming with a mobile phone is that the screens are much smaller. There is little to no movement to be seen. Webcam modeling from your mobile phone is ideal for using Webcam apps for selfies or quick “shout outs” to your fans. Mobile webcams are an excellent choice for promotional purposes.

    PCs and LAPTOPS- Although using a PC is just fine, while camming. Laptops are more recommended due to mobility. With a laptop you can move and tilt the screen in the direction you need. This is ideal for shooting from your bed because you can move more freely around your workspace. A laptop is also great for traveling, while you are in a different city you can network and do collaborations with other models in the industry.

    Mobile Tablets- Camming from your tablet has the same user capabilities as a mobile phone. The difference between the two is that mobile tablets have a bigger screen than the phone, as well as a better camera. Just like the mobile phone, tablets are great for promotional activities and personal selfies. Due to limited mobility with the tablet, it is not ideal to use for long periods of time. Use the mobile tablet if you are using apps for quick chats.

    Webcams- Stock webcams (cameras that are built standard in your laptop) are good for the rookie model that is just starting out. After a certain length of time you may want to upgrade to an external webcam. This is because the quality of a standard built in camera is not the highest of quality. Prospective clients prefer to view everything in HD. With an HD camera the picture output is much more crisp and clear. Owning an HD camera can help maximize profits in the long run.
