I don't consider myself to be an expert on human relations. But, there are a few things I know for sure that may help some of the models who are struggling to get tips or build a loyal fan base. Or, it may help some of the top models strengthen what they've got going. This post is in NO WAY a complaint about any models. I just feel compelled to try to help I guess.
1. Guys/Men/Boys love attention. Do we love to see boobs? Sure. Are most of the guys that show up here just horny and looking for a bit of perversion to put them over the top? I'm sure. BUT, if you show any interest at all in them before they tip... I guarantee that more of them will fight to keep that attention..by tipping. I'm not saying show your stuff for free. I'm not saying act like you love every guy that comes in your room. But some attention to each visitor will go a long way towards them wanting to tip or pvt.
2. Men want..no.. they NEED to be wanted, needed, missed, admired. It's oxygen to us. I have seen hundreds of times a customer trying to chat in a room and getting ready to leave... and just because the model says their name or says something like "Come back soon!" the guy hangs out for another 30 minutes. Hell, I'm that way. If I think for one moment that my presence is desired, it makes me want to sit all day to try to make her smile. I have also seen non-tipping, non-pvt-taking customers pull out their wallet and take a girl private because of her saying something like that. I'm not saying you should try to fool every guy into thinking he's your dream guy... but the simplest courtesies like that can make a big difference in how he feels about his visit with you. Acting like you WANT to see his cam goes a long way. I see it all the time. Admiring his nickname or humor or the "skills" he says he possesses also goes a long way.
3. Try your best to smile. Again, this makes us guys feel like we are important to you. If we think we are making you happy, and we matter, we're much more prone to want to bless you with gifts. Even though you see a room full of chatters; to us, it's just you and me. I'm the only one at my computer..and you are all I see. So the smile or lack of smile can feel personal to each of your visitors.
Again, this is not a complaint. I'm so happy with my favorite model. I just know some of the new models or struggling models might be interested in hearing the guy's perspective...besides just that he likes boobs. LOL
Thank you so much for shedding light on such an important, but sometimes overlooked, aspect of this biz...psychology! Being a newbie, I hadn't really considered how my performances were being received, other than physically/sexually. I'm glad to hear that little things like smiling and laughing, sharing inside jokes, etc. really do affect how the customer feels and therefore, the amount of time and attention he/she will spend chatting. I try to do the things you mentioned, but until I read your post, I was beginning to think I was coming across more as corny. It certainly does make camming more fun to engage the customers on different levels. I will definitely keep incorporating my personality with customers now that I know it is appreciated! You rock ;)
