While people may tell you that just "being yourself" is great for success on any camming site, and while that is generally the case, you also want to develop what makes you special on your site or as a model in general. Your shtick, so to speak - the one thing that makes you different from the thousands of models out there.

What are you wearing? For some girls, it's as simple as wearing one specific thing that makes your regulars crazy. One example of this that comes to mind is AmberCutie and her hot pink shorts. Finding something completely unique that makes you stand out is an easy way to customize your persona, and gives your regulars (and other people) something to remember you by. Maybe you have a crazy insane piercing, or a tattoo that's just remarkable! If that's the case, you're set. Try and play that up as much as possible and incorporate it into who YOU are, who your cam personality IS.
What's your personality like? This is a tough one because everyone advocates just being yourself. But there are quirks that should also be separate from who you are, that defines your camgirl as a person and separates you from her. Try in this case to think of your cam persona as a different person. For example, I might be Liz, but LaDahlia is a very different person. I personally am a very sarcastic, cynical person most of the time, and that is usually a small part of LaDahlia - but for the most part when I'm on cam, I try to distance myself from that and become "her", a more bubbly, friendly, outgoing version of myself.

What do you look like? Everyone knows that when going on cam, you should look your very best - this includes putting on makeup, wearing your very best clothes, and doing everything you can to hold your customers just by how you look. But what does your cam persona look like? How is her makeup different from yours? How does her style differ from yours? Your cam persona's look should differ from yours, if only slightly. Again using a personal example, my style is comfortable - sweatpants, hoodies, very little makeup. But LaDahlia? She wears thigh high socks and sexy shirts with bootie shorts, glasses, smoky eyes and a pouty lip. Which one do you think will be more appealing to customers on a camsite? Your camgirl persona should stay consistent in this manner. Changing it up too much won't help you retain regulars! Some of the top girls out there found something to roll with, and it works! An example of this would me Morella Addams on MyFreeCams. She's got a very dark, gothy personality, lots of black makeup, pale skin and coloured wigs. She's never changed that and when people sign onto the site, she stands out - and her regulars keep coming back because that's what they like in a girl.

Other things to think about are affectations (how does your camgirl flirt? does she have any subtle hand movements, facial expressions, etc that make you look great?), positions (which positions flatter you best on cam? What's the best way to show off your rear?), and speech (is your persona crass? Does she swear a lot? I personally swear a LOT in "real life", but rarely do on cam.).

While being yourself will work on camera, think about it - what have you always wanted to be? What have you always wanted to look like? What do YOU think is the sexiest thing ever, that you've never been able to do in public? All of these things contribute to your camgirl persona, which in turn is tied to your camming name. Your persona should never be a completely different person - merely an extension of who you are. Camming is your chance to be a sexy, flirty, even slutty character...and since that ideal differs for everyone, developing a camgirl persona will help you stand out from the masses. Be yourself, of course - but sometimes on cam, "yourself" needs a little help.

Incredible article. I find myself being a hybrid of myself and different emotions. As a straight guy I have to deal with well - creeps and I truly don't envy what you girls have to go through. I appreciate the motivation I get to continue at the gym to be the best version of me on am I can be. It definitely brings out a different dominate side in me vocally. Interesting.

Great post! This is something I think about a lot, because part of my appeal is my realness, I have been told. It's a very fine line to walk because I think if anyone who knew me in the real met my Doodlebug character, they would think it's fake, and fake is the very last thing I want to portray. I think you said it so well that it's a "more bubbly, friendly, outgoing version" of your personality. I like to think it's me on a great mood, having a great day with all the not-so-positive qualities edited out. That's how I feel on cam, and I don't get on unless I feel like I can get to that happy place. Luckily, I really enjoy it and have been lucky enough to have some really nice people chatting with me. "Your persona should never be a completely different person - merely an extension of who you are." This is so true! For me to really sell itsell the fantasy, that isit has to feel believable to me, too. Otherwise, I would constantly have to decide what my character would do or act. Anyway, I am just repeating the points that you already made so eloquently, so really I just wanted to say: great article! Smiley (K)

Awesome... I really enjoyed your distinction of expressing versions. It still retains authencity while choosing aspects of oneself to project a particular image. Thank you so much, Dahlia!

Great article. It says just why I love to be a camgirl, dress up and be sexy and flirty, you don't do that every day in real life. Be yourself on a different level, the best level of you!! And give people a good time and make them feel special, just as they make you feel special. And forget about the creeps, they also exist in real life.

Thanks for the article. It's very helpful. That you need a cam personality is something you discover because despite they ask for natural, amateurs etc. They have even told me that I am too friendly to make people horny or very girl next door to tip me. So the balance always has to go towards the sexiest, happiest and friendlier side of yourself and be your camself. I am very myself, very easy to recognize... But 70% more make up I 90% friendlier with humans* and without swearing Smiley xD
