2. Signing up for LiveJasmin, the most popular video chat community LiveJasmin

Become a webcam model on LiveJasmin

LiveJasmin is hands down the most popular webcam streaming site. It’s number 1 in the world for the number of visitors and models as well as for the size of monthly payments. The website got started back when this business was still developing, and now has a substantial base of paying clients and a large team of administrators who continue to attract new well-to-do clients every day. The models receive a high percentage of the payments, there are always contests with high money prizes, you can make money off selling your photos and videos without joining a chat. That, combined with a well-thought out multilingual interface and a 24-hour tech support in the online chat makes working with LiveJasmin so attractive.

The time it takes to sign up
Signing up takes about 30 minutes. If your id raises no questions, you will get a confirmation email within the next 24 hours. Usually approving a model’s account takes 2 to 3 hours.

What you need to sign up
To start working as a webcam model in video chats at LiveJasmin, you will need a photo or scanned copy of your id and a picture of you holding it (can also be done with your webcam when you are signing up).

Categories
Girl (the most profitable category), Hot Flirt (a category with certain limits), Soul mate (a category with no nudity, but you need to be a bit of a therapist to earn enough money), Fetish (a very promising category for those who know how to transform).

How much you get paid, price per minute
The website pays up to 80% of the money you earn (the percentage depends of the size of your earnings, the higher the earnings, the higher your cut). A private chat costs between $2 and $5 per minute (you can set the price yourself). If you use a microphone, the price will be $2 higher. You can earn up to $3 a minute from spy mode during private shows. You can switch off the spy mode option if you like. When working in the Free chat your income is roughly 5% more than in the members only chat.

Payout frequency
The website makes a transfer to your Firstchoice Pay card twice a month: you get money for the first period (1st to 15th of the month) before the 10th of the following month, and money for the second period (16th until the end of the month) before the 25th of the following month. The minimal payout limit is $100.

Special features
Signing up is fairly easy and accounts are usually approved quickly. Among other advantages are: an intuitive interface, a large number of visitors. The only complication are the high standards for video quality and the speed of your Internet connection. If your videos are blurry or lagging, your account might be frozen temporarily until the issues are resolved (after troubleshooting you need to contact tech support to confirm the quality of your video communication and restore your account). LiveJasmin staff recommend the Logitech® HD Pro Webcam C920 (it can be found online for about $100).
If the model is signing up for LiveJasmin for the first time, she can try the promotional period and start making a lot of money and meeting regulars right away (if the option wasn’t switched on automatically, you should contact tech support to switch it on).

Ways to supplement your income
By participating in various video contests that constantly happen at LiveJasmin, you can raise your rating (that affects how much you make) and winning prizes can make you extra thousands of dollars. You can get paid for photos and videos. Earnings from attracting new members are around 20% from what they spend on the site (for life). Imagine that in addition to your regular income you manage to attract 100 new members who will spend an average of $100 a month on talking to the girls. It’s basic arithmetics: (100 members * $100) *20% = $2,000 a month for the rest of your life, even if you quit modelling on the site. Of course, they won’t appear on their own in a week, but it’s worth it and it’s not even the limit! To increase your income you can pay for promotion and increase the number of visitors to your room. What comes next depends on the girl’s charm and how interesting she seems to the visitors. It is a good tactic for beginners who already know the details but don’t have regulars yet.

Chaturbate is a rather popular sex video chat. You can make money from different types of shows: free chat, private show with one visitor and private group show. Private shows aren’t very common, but in the models’ experience, the best way to make money is making hot free shows with a set price for reaching goals.

Tips for goal on Chaturbate. How does it work?
The system is fairly simple, the website uses a virtual currency called tokens ($1 = 20 tokens), and the girl might choose a price to bare her breasts, for example, 200 tokens, and the visitors of her chatroom chip in until that goal is reached. The hotter the action, the higher the price. Sometimes there can be an overwhelming number of people in one room — over 5,000 at once, and the model makes a couple hundred dollars in 20 minutes. It’s an unusual website where models without inhibitions make a lot of money. Because of the way the website operates it is best to work there after switching off other video chatrooms and making sure your show stands out. It is good as a supplementary website and for those who can’t spend a lot of time on webcam but want some quick money on the side.
