UPDATE: We have a new series of articles where we interview cam models and ELM sellers so you can learn from actual models.

Not to say webcam modeling is a get-rich-quick scheme, but I think cam modeling website owners and operators like to sell models on that idea.

On the surface becoming a cam “girl” or cam “boy” isn’t difficult.

Aside from being over 18 years old, having a computer with an internet connection, and the courage to reveal some skin that’s really all you need to get started. I decided to look at 3 popular web modeling websites to see what they say in terms of money you can earn.

im Live, unfortunately, doesn’t give you any numbers in terms of money you could be earning.

Instead they tell you you can “Earn Big Money Online,” you get paid every 2 weeks, and if you are top host that you’ll be showered with Versace dinner sets (didn’t know Versace made dinner sets).

Other than that there is no information how you get paid and how much you’ll be paid for your time.

But maybe you’d rather be paid in Versace dinner sets (a 9.95 value according to Amazon) does a better job than im Live at revealing some numbers to give you an idea of potential income, but again there is no specific information.

You hear about strippers, the ones dancing in gentleman’s clubs, making good money, but you don’t hear much about the world of virtual strippers.

That’s what inspired me to discover just how much money a webcam model can make.
