Hi ladies, I’m just getting started with modeling/dancing and a lot of the ads I’ve replied to have been gigs through studios, some of which seem shady. Is it better to work direct? Are there certain sites/services that offer independent, direct gigs?September 24, 2012 at 7:58 pm #4469AnonymousGuest
There are sites and services that allow you to more or less just work for yourself. You may have to give them a monthly set amount for driving traffic your way but that is it.September 25, 2012 at 3:54 am #4470AnonymousGuest
Thanks Carrie (and sexxy for asking, this is something I have run into as well). It seems like there are a good share of scammy/shady studios out there…how do you know when a service is legit?October 7, 2012 at 6:38 am #4471AnonymousGuest
Just a follow-up on this…I applied to an ad I saw for college webcam girls and got the run-around from the agent on the other end…a lot of ambiguity and dodged questions especially when it comes to payment…if you don’t get a good vibe up-front, don’t do the job. I’d still love to hear some advice from the vets on this one.October 7, 2012 at 8:27 am #4472AnonymousGuest
I’d recommend new people start with an agency so they can get a feel for if the work is right for them. Once you have the basics down, some experience, and maybe even a following you can branch out alone.October 7, 2012 at 4:53 pm #4473AnonymousGuest
There’s nothing wrong with an agency so long as it’s a legitimate agency. In my opinion, you can tell a legitimate agency from an illegitimate agency right away because a legitimate agency will answer all of your questions up-front and will provide you with the terms of the employment agreement IN WRITING. If you are on the phone with someone that’s acting dodgy and refuses to provide you with anything in writing, there’s your red flag.October 8, 2012 at 8:04 pm #4474AnonymousGuest
Thank you all for your input! lil and proud, it really helps to have those things in mind…I’ve seen a lot of “red flags” but, being so new to the whole thing, I wasn’t sure if it was that way across the board or not.December 19, 2012 at 3:26 am #4475AnonymousGuest
You will make more money and have more control if you work a direct job. There are plenty of places that you can sign up to work directly. Some that you might consider checking out are MyFreeCams, ImLive, and Flirtforfree.December 28, 2012 at 4:02 am #4476AnonymousGuest
I think that in the end you will do better on your own than you will with a studio. When you work for a studio you are always giving them some of your money!
