I have made the mistake of investing a lot of money in my equipment from the start, and have had quite a lot of financial troubles for a while, so I came to the conclusion that this is not a good idea. It would probably be a better choice to invest little by little. What do YOU recommend in this regard? 😕
The first good investment my wife and I made was changing our ISP to a better one. A good internet connection is a must! Then we bought a webcam, after a while we bought some toys and little by little we invested in other things.
It would be nice to have all of the gadgets and props you need right from the start. But, unless you are financially able to, you will just have to be patient until you can afford it all. Do the best you can with what you have.
Until you know if being a webcam model is something that you are going to enjoy and be successful at I wouldn’t drop a whole lot of money at once. Get a good camera and make sure you have a quality internet connection and leave it at that to start with.
The better your equipment is, the better quality you are going to provide to your customers. It is not exactly a mistake to invest a lot of money on good equipment if you already have the money to begin with. However, investing money that you don’t have in something that you have no experience with is never a good idea. You really need to get a feel for the work, and see if it really is something that you are going to enjoy.
