Chapter 2: Choose Your Cam Model Name & Set Up Your Profile
After you have decided which cam site you will sign up on, you should start considering what your cam model name might be. After all, it’s the name that will present your webcam model persona to the camming world. So, what’s the best way to find a name that might suit you? What other pieces of information will you need to provide when setting up your cam girl profile on one of these sites?
Before you start working in the webcam modeling world, you might want to know these useful tips on how to create an effective profile that will act as the foundation of your future career. Your profile is where your viewers will get their first impression of you and it will have a profound effect on your results. Let’s start by looking at how you can find the right name for yourself and create a profile that will entice people to tune in to your show regularly.
What are the best egirl names?
Your cam name, also known as an egirl name, is the first thing people on these sites will know about you. That’s why it is vital that it matches your cam girl persona and how you want your audience to view you. You have probably already noticed that there are many types of camming personas out there, so looking at some existing ones may give you an idea of the one you want to adopt.
You can also choose a cam name based on your personal preferences. If you’ve always loved a certain name or style, why not use this opportunity and present yourself with it? Or, you can even invent something or choose a unique name that’s not very common. Your username, as well as the name you give yourself will represent your brand in the cam world. For example, looking at Novaruu, cam girl who made a name for herself and who everyone recognizes by her name.
It’s perfectly fine if you wish to stick to your own name once you set up your profile on one of these sites. The options are limitless, but that doesn’t mean you should choose just any name that pops into your head. Keep in mind that changing your name once your career takes off may affect your cam girl identity, so ensure to choose one you feel will represent you for the rest of your career.

Match Your Name with Your Camming Persona
As mentioned above, one of the easiest ways to choose your name is to match it with your camming persona. However, if you’re just getting started, you most likely haven’t decided on your camming persona. That’s why it would be a good idea to think of these two elements as two sides of the same coin.
To understand how to become a cam girl, you should first take a look at the different types of cam girls out there. Looking through the sea of girls on these modeling sites, we’ve gathered for you the most popular cam girl types and everything you need to know about them to provide your audience with an authentic camming experience!
Asian Cam Girl
An Asian cam model is actually a subcategory of the foreign cam girl type. Most of the time, these models are of Asian, African, or South American origin and they attract an enormous number of viewers with their exotic appearance and culture. However, their performance will go beyond their looks, as they might implement these cultural characteristics to seduce their target audience and provide them with a unique experience.
Asian cam girls are one of the most popular types in the camming community. Most of these girls live in Asia, but a lot of them can be found in Europe and the United States. So, check out the main features of an Asian cam model to see if this is something you can identify with:
- Petite body
- Young, fresh, and natural face
- Cute, girly outfits
- Somewhat shy and private
Headless Cam Girl
If you’ve become concerned about your privacy after exploring camming sites, this cam girl type is for you. As the name implies, these girls never show their face to their viewers and share very little personal details about themselves. Many girls will create a persona that leads a completely different life than their own, and their chosen name will often emphasize the mysterious aspect of their performance.
Here are some main characteristics of a headless cam girl:
- Doesn’t show her face
- Terrific and recognizable body
- Builds mystery around the privacy of her appearance
“I Only Look At My Phone” Cam Girl
Seeing as there are more and more people visiting cam sites every day, the number of cam girl types also increases. After all, more viewers means a variety of different tastes. One type that is becoming increasingly popular these days is the type of cam girl that only looks at her phone. These girls ignore their viewers during their time online and focus solely on their phones, a persona that entices those who prefer a disconnected experience between the model and themselves.
But, to succeed in such a role, you will need to feel comfortable and confident. Although you might think ignoring people on your channel is a seamless feat, it’s actually harder than you think. Your performance will have to be very convincing and sharp, and you must demonstrate that this is in fact your persona. This cam girl type is hyper-focused on tokens and nothing else.
If you think this might be your type, check if you fill out all the criteria:
- Not interested in connecting with the audience
- Really focused and determined to achieve their goal, e.g. ignoring their viewers
- Possess a strong attitude which is easily noticeable by others
Single Cam Girl
“All the single ladies, all the single ladies”… If that’s your anthem, the single cam girl is your category! These girls enjoy emphasizing their single status to appeal to a wider audience. The reason why many webcam models choose this type is that there are a lot of viewers who enjoy the prospect of the girlfriend experience.
Here are some tips for you if you’re considering becoming a “single cam girl”:
- Show off your single relationship status
- Provide an intimate and authentic girlfriend experience
- Ensure you make enough time to dedicate yourself to your fans and pamper them with your attention
Cosplay Cam Girl
If low-key is definitely not a word you would use to describe yourself or your cam girl type, then you might like the cosplaying type! A cosplay cam girl adores flashy, luxury clothes and cool costumes, and her style is the one thing her fans love the most about her. She spends most of her income on costumes and loves showing them off when working.
Her target audience is viewers interested in tipping their tokens to see her dress up as new characters. A portion of the cosplay cam girl’s tokens contribute to her cosplay fund to buy materials, props, or costumes for her shows. If dressing up and being creative is part of what you wanted for your camming persona, keep these things in mind:
- You may need to earn a lot to purchase outfits for your shows
- Your performances will be built around the items you have purchased or received
- Your camming space needs to fit your theme
Setting Up Your Profile
Once you have decided which cam girl type you are and which cam model name will you give yourself, it’s time to set up your profile on one of the best cam sites for you. The sign-up process on most of these websites is similar and doesn’t require too much time.
Here is the information you will need to submit to start working as a cam girl on your chosen site:
- Username: Your username might want to include your cam model name.
- Password: We don’t have to remind you how important your security and privacy on these sites are. Choose a strong password!
- Email address: It would be best to create a new email address for your camming job.
- Date of birth: You can provide your real date of birth when signing up or put down a fake age.
- Identity Documents: All cam sites will require you to have a scan or high-quality photograph of your official ID and additional pictures for security.
Once you have been confirmed to work on the website, you can start setting up your profile. If you’re uncertain what information you need to include in your profile, you can always check out other girls’ profiles to get an idea. We would advise you to have a clear profile with these elements:
- Photo: Choose a photo that will represent your cam girl persona.
- Theme: Ensure the theme and colors of your profile match your persona.
- About: Write about the experience you will give to your fans, your hobbies and preferences. If there’s something that makes you different from all the other girls out there, make sure you add it to your profile.
- Social media: If you’re looking to expand your audience and gain a following, you should link your social media channels and aim to boost your traffic on all of your platforms. (TIP: Create separate social media profiles just for your cam activities)
- Schedule: Girls from all around the world work on these sites, so be clear about the hours and time zone you will be online to your fans.
Common OOPS! Moments
Although all this information seems straightforward, you should be sure of your cam model name, category, and brand before you set up your profile. Let’s say you start working under the name ‘Shy Lucy’ and you’ve chosen the single cam girl type. After a few months, you want to change your name and switch to the cosplay category. At this point, you may have already built up an audience, and changing your persona might lead to a lot of your fans leaving your page and messing up your rank position or reputation.
Doing your webcam videos all over again may not be an enjoyable process, so it’s important to do it right the first time. Be clear about what type of experience you want to create for your audience and how you want to deliver it to them. Once you are 100% sure you know what you are doing, go for it!
