Competition in the industry is wide. Models that start their webcam career don’t have a guaranteed success and must take the road that many others have taken before them. Climb levels and move from being new model to be part of a group of top webcam models with thousands of followers is the usual path but this is not something that happens overnight.

3. Learn English:
The study of the English language is important according to Alejandra Velez, a model with two years of experience: “One key element for being a successful webcam model is the total ability to communicate in English.”
