BongaModels: Frequently Asked Questions

How to make money with BongaModels

You can make money both in the free and private chat. Below, we will share some tips on how you can earn money on our website:

  • 1. We recommend using the status bar to inform users that, for example, a show in your free chat costs 500 tokens or that a dance goes for 100 tokens. This will allow to avoid unnecessary questions and will facilitate your work.
  • 2. Talk to your guests in English! It is always appreciated and is truly worth it – a decent level of English in the chat will get you more tips and private chat requests as well as will help you find new regular customers.
  • 3. Smile and be in a good mood in front of the camera. If a visitor sees a girl who is bored, angry, or in a bad mood, they will move to another chat room with a more positive environment.
  • 4. Tell your customers when you are coming back when you leave.
  • 5. Turn the microphone on. This saves you from having to write a lot in the chat, and voice has always been more attractive than printed text. Speak to the members, and you will see how the number of tips grows.
  • 6. Use the nicknames of your guests. If they tell you their real names, use them! Using proper names always draws people to you.
  • 7. It is important not to give your full attention to just one member in the chat room. This may seem rude, but you need to immediately identify the chat room guests who are able to pay for a private chat or give tips, and primarily talk to them.
  • 8. When a member gives you tips or takes you to a private chat, make sure to add him to your friend list.
  • 9. Bright make-up looks very good on camera - so it is recommended to put on brighter, more expressive make-up than the one you use in everyday life.
  • 10. Members come to webcam sites to have fun! Perform small shows, tease your guests, dress sexy, and tips will rain down on you!
  • 11. Keep toys, accessories, and other items necessary for your work at hand. Do not turn the camera off, or worse, do not leave the bed empty looking for your toys.
  • 12. If you are asked whether you have a husband or a boyfriend, the best answer is no and that you are actively looking for one. This will create intrigue, a little secret that you share with your guests.
  • 13. Tips. The private chat is great, but the most modern way to earn money is through tips. Top models make 80-90% of their earnings on them. There is a stereotype that doing shows in free chats is a waste of money and time, but this is not entirely true. Imagine you say to your guests that you will show your breasts for a hundred dollars. It can be (and probably is) too expensive for one person. But if ten members chip in $10.00 each, none of them will end up spending too much, whereas you get a lot of money for just a minute! Regularly teasing your guests and collecting tips can help you earn good money without having to wait for private show requests!
  • 14. If you are new to the webcam business, do not be discouraged if in the first few weeks your income is small. Most of your earnings will come from the regular members who come to see you and your shows.
  • 15. Work in front of the camera to have fun and make new friends - enjoy it! Do not work with the only goal of making a lot of money, and the money will find you.

Free chat

If you are going to make money in the free chat by giving a show, it is best to attract as many users as you can and then ask them to tip you. Since the free chat is free for members, you will make money only when they tip you. Tips usually depend on the show a model gives. Teasing a little also helps. Besides the free chat, you can also use the private and group chat options.

Private Chat

Users that have Tokens can press "Private chat" in a model's chat room to invite her to chat privately. The model then decides whether to accept or decline the invitation. If the model accepts the invitation, the user gets a private show.

Private chat costs 30 Tokens a minute. This means that if a user spends 10 minutes in your private chat, your earnings will be as follows: 10 minutes * 30 Tokens = 300 Tokens. A private chat ends automatically once the user runs out of Tokens. Both the model and the user can stop the chat any moment. Models can disable the private chat option in settings under the streaming window by unchecking "Allow private chat".

Full private chat

The user can also opt for a full private chat, which is very similar to the regular private chat except for the fact that it cannot be spied on in Voyeur/Spy mode. By switching to a full private chat, the user can be sure they are the only ones enjoying the show.

Full private chat costs 45 tokens per minute. This means that if the user spends 10 minutes in a full private chat with you, you will make 10 minutes * 45 tokens = 450 tokens. Full private chat closes automatically if the user runs out of tokens or if the model or the user decides to end the show at any given time.

Spying

When you are engaged in a private chat with the user, other users have an opportunity to spy on your chat at a lower price rate, i.e., 7 tokens per minute. They cannot chat with you and can only watch.

Back to top

Group Chat

To begin a group chat, a user needs to press the "Group chat" button in the model's chat room. A group chat begins once the minimum number of participants has been reached (can be set in group chat settings under the streaming window). A group chat ends once the last user leaves it, or the last participating user runs out of money, or the model decides to leave. A model can start a group chat even if there is only one user in it by pressing "Start group chat now". An unlimited number of users can join in later.

Group chat costs 15 Tokens per minute for each user. This is a very low price, which makes group shows so popular among users ready to tip models. Models can remove the group chat feature in settings under the streaming window by unchecking "Allow group chat".

Tips

Users can tip you. Some users leave tips after the show to thank you, others tip to get your attention. Remember that tips are a gift and they do not oblige you in any way. However, if a user leaves a tip, it is common courtesy to show your gratitude.

How do I increase my earnings?

Guide to Becoming the Best Model Online

Introduction

There have been recent changes to appearance requirements for models. As usually happens with changes, there are some that may appear to be minor when taken on the surface. However, the cumulative effect of these changes when taken in sum can add increased profitability and exposure to you as a model.

When you are communicating as a model, communication itself can come in many different forms. However the most important always has been and always will be audio. Everyone, no matter who they are, appreciate audible communication. It is that personal touch that makes the experience more realistic and valuable for the members.

Camera Image Quality

When addressing the camera be sure to remain engaged and not distracted. Looking away from the camera can cause you to appear disengaged. This disengagement comes across to the members as a poor experience and we want to avoid that at all costs.

Also, the value of a positive and energetic attitude cannot be overstated. The experience for our members will increase dramatically if the performers maintain a level of energy throughout. The availability and occurrences of private sessions increase almost in direct correlation for those performers who maintain a certain level of excitement and engagement with the members. Never forget that smiling is key!

Capturing crisp images in the proper format (aspect and lighting) is essential. The use of proper equipment is key here as well. There are a couple of ways to do this, please refer to the Model Account or our Support team for setting recommendations available to performers.

Camera Image Quality

The benefits that come with using high definition cameras are almost too many to list. Members will be more involved in the moment if the camera and image quality they are experiencing are both HD. This quality equipment will pay dividends to you as well by having more repeat sessions. HD camera usage is a surefire way to drive more traffic to you, as the experience for the end user is significantly increased.

Clothes

Getting dressed for the part is also critical. Top-level performers work to create the type of atmosphere for the members that they are actively seeking. Give them what they want and engage your members. Give them the environment they want and enjoy!

Clothes

When on camera or video the very first thing that anyone will notice is the color of the clothing you are wearing. It is part of the environment and setting.

Clothes for Ladies

Remember, that if you wear a proper color you can achieve multiple ‘looks and feels’. As an example darker tones and clothes can be slimming. Horizontal stripes and clothing are also very good on camera (despite what you may have heard)!

Clothes for Ladies

You are given the freedom to express your style – please use it! Create and be yourself, members will appreciate the realistic nature as it comes through.

Clothes for Gentlemen

Men must remember that black looks like a shadow and can remove the energy and life from you via the camera. This is even more true when you have dark toned skin already.

Clothes for Gentlemen

Men, the same as women, should maintain a personal touch and be creative in their clothing. They must also strive to create unique environment for the members.

Make-up

Camera work tends to mute the appearance of make-up. As a result, it is recommended to use darker and prominent shades. The added benefit of this is that dark shades can also hide flaws that the camera might otherwise pickup.

Models regularly use facial touchups and effects to maintain appearance goals. Body and tone, when highlighted by proper make-up usage, can achieve all sorts of fantastic results. You can be anything you want to be - thinner, more toned, or muscular, to appear more sun-kissed, and ultimately, more confident. There is no difference here. Again, be creative. Performers most strive to use everything at their disposal to achieve the desired outcome. This goes for the eyes, lips and anything else on your face!

Make-up one

As a general reminder everything is seen by the camera. Although they get less attention than the face, you should also pay close attention to nail. Regular care and maintenance of your nails is not only a healthy routine to get into, it will also ensure you have a better camera appearance. Nail care can be simple and doesn’t have to be expensive.

Make-up two
Pose

Your pose (and the ability to maintain as well as change it) is essential to a successful experience for the member. Body language is used to express a variety of emotions. Power, status, and confidence are nonverbally displayed through the use of height and space in the shot. Remember this when setting your camera and environment.

Finally, remember that when on camera, adjusting your posture as you move around will create different emotions and impressions for the member.

Pose
Hair

Hair styles cannot be overstated. The necessity to maintain attractive and intriguing hair styles must always be a part of your maintenance preparation efforts.

Hair
Hair for Girls

Maintain a hairstyle that you can and should use to accentuate your clothes and other features. Be creative!

Hair for Girls image one

Do your styling the way you feel comfortable. Be seductive and be yourself!

Hair for Girls image two

The simpler your style the easier it may be to make a connection as a real person with the members. Be yourself as at all times and let your beauty shine through.

Hair for Girls image three

Don’t be afraid to accessorize and add to your outfits. This creates a more enticing atmosphere for our members.

Hair for Boys

It is also vitally important for men to make a good impression with their hair as well. Make sure your style is clean and presentable.

Hair for Boys
Background

There are many great tips for successful background usage. It all starts at the beginning however. The fastest, easiest way to get a dramatic background is to keep it simple. Setup is key. Members will notice when backgrounds aren’t proper or don’t fit the model’s style. Don’t overcomplicate backgrounds; you will regret it later on!

Finally with background remember that a model’s skin tone, hair color, clothing, eye color, etc. will play a factor in choosing the right backdrop color.

Background

The more you decorate the background the more enticing it will be. Use different accessories for your background to be more appealing to our members.

Camera Angle

Don’t just vary your background – remember that you can also utilize different camera angles and positions as well. For example instead of shooting everything from eye level and with the camera horizontal, try shooting with it pointing higher or lower. Crouch down, place the camera above your head, adjust the background and positioning in the room, etc.

Camera Angle

If your camera has a swiveling screen you can use that to monitor the video feed even while the camera is in unusual positions. Don’t be afraid to utilize a remote control. It can be an incredibly useful tool to start and stop shooting when your camera is out of reach.

Lens

Do not make the mistake of thinking, however, that cameras are everything. The basics must also be taken into account. Clean and maintain your lenses and accessories. These can make or break your show!

Lens
Lighting

You should also shoot from different positions around the room beforehand to achieve the right lighting conditions. Don’t just shoot from directly in front or from the side – be sure to experiment and try different things.

Lighting image one

After audio, great lighting is the most important way to make videos stand out. Lighting is going to occur regardless of prep; it is just a matter of whether it will be good or bad. But it won’t look anywhere near as good as if you take the time to light it right.

Lighting image two

When using webcams be sure to avoid shooting in rooms that are much too bright for the environment. Too much lighting can wash out the model. Strong lighting can be tricky to manage so be sure to pay close attention to the set up and delivery of your lighting source. Using different lighting can also aid in casting fewer shadows.

Optimal lighting examples

To put it most simply, everything in shooting is all about lighting! The quickest and most effective way to overcome lighting issues is to prepare properly. Spend the time investing in testing and running different scenarios in the room/environment. This is time well spent.

Below are a few examples for you to consider:

Optimal lighting examples image one

Notice the differences in brightness and color – these are essential.

Optimal lighting examples image two

Lighting and bulbs must be used in conjunction with one another. You cannot get one right and the other wrong – be sure to test.

The only way to take your videos to the next level and make them a top notch experience for the member is to spend the time learning how to light properly. As a model you have a responsibility to the member to learn and get better at your craft.

Experiment and find the proper mood for your room. The more you experiment the more you will improve and get better for your members.

What is CamScore?

CamScore is a Model's rating calculated in points. It is divided into 4 regional indicators:

  1. 1. North America;
  2. 2. Western Europe;
  3. 3. CIS countries;
  4. 4. all other countries.
Each of these values determines the placement of your chat room on the main page of the site in the corresponding region. A high CamScore ensures the top placements in the overall model list, while a low CamScore, on the contrary, makes you less discoverable for BongaCams users.

Why do we use it?

Hundreds of online models need to be presented in some sort of order in the long model list on our site. The point of CamScore is to reward the best, most active models with the best position on our site. This default sort order lists highest earning models at the top of the page and least successful models, at the bottom.

Such a default sort order is much better than, for example, listing all models randomly or alphabetically. This way, no-one gets an unfair advantage as the best position on our site will be assigned only to the hardest working models.

Calculation

The score is calculated based on many factors, the most important being the model’s token earnings on the site and the amount of time spent online. The more time you spend working and the more money you make, the better your CamScore will be.

Also, good Internet connection is a must. A model with a poor Internet connection will never be listed at the top of our models list no matter how much tokens she earns or how much time she spends online.

Update Frequency

The score is updated automatically ca. every 10 minutes.

Raising CamScore

Here is what you can do to improve your CamScore

  • Earn as Much as Possible

    The best way to increase your score is to earn more tokens (through tips, private, group, full private, and voyeur chats, gifts, etc.).

  • Spend a lot Lot of time Time Online

    You will get extra points for going online every single day. However, being away for longer than two days will result in your CamScore gradually decreasing

    Also, keep in mind that models are listed on our site only when they are online. You can get at the top of the model list simply because most of other models are offline.

  • Make sure your Internet connection is reliable and fast enough to support the broadcast

    As mentioned above, models with poor Internet connection will never be listed at the top of our models list no matter how much tokens they earn or how much time they spend online.

  • Promote BongaCams

    You get points for every model and paying member you introduce to our site. Models also get CamScore points for every single member who signs-up or buys tokens from their chat rooms.

New Models

New models are given a CamScore that comes close to the average CamScore on the site. This initial CamScore will be based on many factors including the quality of your Internet connection. Models may improve their CamScore by earning more tokens or decrease it by being inactive. Either way, this score will change quickly based on a model’s actual performance on the site.

Average Model Rating

The average CamScore on the site:

  1. 1. North America – 241;
  2. 2. Western Europe – 281;
  3. 3. CIS countries – 294;
  4. 4. all other countries – 242.

Hot Mode

When the Hot Mode is enabled your RevShare score increases by 10%, and CamScore gains are multiplied by 1.25.

When is Hot Mode activated?

Hot Mode is automatically activated after you spend a certain amount of time online during an ongoing period. In your account and on the broadcast page you will find a personal timer that shows how much time you have left to spend online to activate Hot Mode.

How long does Hot Mode last?

Hot Mode is valid until the end of the period. When the mode is active, the broadcast page is colored red. At the beginning of the new period, the time counter is reset and starts to countdown time until the next Hot Mode activation.

BongaCams reserves the right to disable this option at any time without explanation.

I cannot see my video feed. What can be the problem?

First of all, check if your webcam is connected and your camera is installed correctly. Also, make sure you have the latest Flash player version installed on your computer.

I can see my video feed, but there is no audio. Why?

You need either a separate microphone or an integrated microphone to provide audio feed. Most modern webcams and laptops have integrated microphones, but if yours does not, you can buy a microphone for a few dollars and then just plug it in the microphone connector of your computer’s audio device. If you have everything installed correctly and still cannot get your audio feed to work, please contact our support team at support@bongamodels.com.
