Getting a faster internet connection is key to running higher quality cam shows. Call your service provider to see what improvements specifically to uploading speed are available.

As always, rememeber to check SpeedTest.net if you’re having issues.

Firefox – Free download!

If you’re not a FireFox fan, Google Chrome is also highly recommended by cam models. Not only does Firefox work on every computer – it’s fast, secure, and has the most reliable memory – aka less dropped shows & connection issues. An easy & free step to become a more advanced cam4 babe.

Pay As You Go Phone

Giving fans options to take their experience with you beyond the cam will make you more loyal fans willing to spend more. One popular option is selling or raffling off your personal phone number. To do this, buy a Pay As You Go phone from a convenience store, phone company, Wal Mart, or even a grocery store. Then, head to Cam4 and begin a raffle or sale. Viewers love to feel connected to you, and this offers a way more personal feeling than Twitter or PMs on Cam4.

Computer

Buy used!

If you’re looking to upgrade your computer, check online and in local stores for used computers. Many people upgrade their hardware often and sell the old models at an affordable price. I’ve bought and sold all of my Mac computers online and saved thousands of dollars. The bonus is, a lot of newer laptops come with webcams so you’ll score a decent cam too.

Dance Pole
