If you’ve made the choice to become a webcam model, there are different ways to go about it, but the easiest way to get started performing and earning money is to work with an established webcam site like NextLevel. You’ll need to make sure you have a few things ready ahead of time before starting.
Identification / Proof Of Age
Of course, to begin working in the adult entertainment industry, you will have to be of legal age and be ready to present documentation that proves you are. You will be asked to provide some kind of government issued photo ID that clearly shows your age or date of birth.
The minimum age requirement to perform will depend on where you live. In most areas, you will need to be at least 18 years old, in other areas the requirement may be 21.
Stable High-Speed Internet
Transmitting video over the Internet requires a stable and fast connection. Faster connections will allow for higher quality video, which can help raise your average earnings. Most cable or DSL connections should work, but the faster the better.
It’s important to note that when most cable or DSL companies advertise the speed of their connections, they usually give the download speed, such as 50 mbps (megabytes per second) or 100 mbps, etc. The upload speed can be significantly lower, and when you are sending video out to the Internet you are uploading. If you have problems sending video you may need to contact Internet service provider to see if raising your upload speed is possible.
Computer And Webcam
It should go without saying that if you want to be a webcam model, you’re going to need a computer and a webcam.
Any computer purchased within the last 2 years or so will most likely be powerful enough to run any webcam. Hardware requirements can vary quite a bit though, so it’s a good idea to check with us to be sure your computer will run the webcam stream without any problems.
If the computer you want to use has a built-in webcam, it will most likely work if you need to use it to get started, but an external webcam will give you much better results. The versatility of an external camera will give you a lot more freedom on screen. Depending on your computer setup, you might also find that extras like a wireless keyboard and mouse will come in handy too.
A Place To Perform
The last thing you’ll need is a place to perform. It can be anywhere you are comfortable as long as you’ve got enough room to move around and sufficient light. It might also be a good idea to make sure there is nothing in the background of your performance area that you don’t want shown on camera, such as photographs or any kind of personally identifiable information.
All Systems Go
If you’ve got everything above ready to go, all you’ll need to do now is sign up for a model account.
In general, the signup process is fast and easy. You’ll need to fill out our form that is going to ask for all of your relevant information, such as name, etc. You should also be able to upload a copy of your photo identification.
The final step will be setting up your profile, or your performa persona. This is what the members will see when they search for you, or find you while browsing through models on the site. Of course, you’ll want to make sure you make your profile as attractive as you possible can.
From there, all you have to do is wait for your account to be approved. Once someone has reviewed your account and verified your ID, you should receive an email letting you know that you’ve been approved and instructing you on how to go about getting started with your first live online session.
Congratulations! If you’ve made it this far, you are now a webcam model!
