What a few months ago seemed like a strange time-out from our busy lives, has now become the new normality. The biggest industries in the world have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, some more than others, and day by day we are witnessing the rise and fall of business giants.
In a world that seems to be a poor man's scenario of Mad Max, what do we still consider a need? How has COVID-19 affect the cam industry, people's desire for online intimacy, or has it affected it at all?
While the unemployment rate is rising day by day, with an optimistic scenario of it peaking at 9.7% this year and a pessimistic one of 13.3%, the question on everyone's mind seems to be "what's the best job to have?".
Studio20 is the largest cam studio franchise in the world, counting 33 international studios in 2020. Studio20 is working with some of the top cam models in the world and specialized trainers, ready to help them reach the highest earnings in the cam-osphere.
Throughout the lockdown, many many people have resorted to going online to meet people, virtually hang out with friends, and meet their possible dream girl.
It's not a surprise that the cam and dating industry has boomed, as people got more time to spend and fewer options to do it in real life.
Studio20 has seen significant growth in the number of models applying for the job and the #girslfromstudio20 have seen considerable growth in their revenue.
Women that wanted to work online have been given the possibility to do so in the safest way possible, as limos were sent to pick up the models from home, all studios were cleaned to perfection and the staff was attending to each model's needs so they don't risk anything.
"I started working as a cam model right after the pandemic started and I can't believe it took a pandemic to make me take the best decision of my life. Not only have I earned in these months more than I did throughout all my years working a "normal" job, but the confidence that being a cam model gave me is incredible. I used to work as a personal assistant for a private company's CEO. Day by day I felt belittled, I felt like I was doing slave work and they were recompensating me with some silly bonuses or pushing the idea that a vacation is a gift from them, not something that I deserved. I managed to get back on my feet in a few months, I built a member base that are happy to see me every time I log in and I've learned so much. " Says Daria, a model of 5 months
The dedicated training that Studio20 offers adapted itself to the current global climate and so, the trainers and managers were instructed to teach the models how to talk to the members and help keep them both online and keep the morale up.
More so, Studio20 launched www.stars.live where one can find all the #girlsfromstudio20. Stars.live is meant to promote the models as influencers and do what they were preparing to do for such a long time: generate their own traffic from social media. Studio20 is investing monthly huge amounts of money in traffic that is converted in the models chat rooms.
"When the news was that people were staying more at home, everyone thought that that means more time spent with the models online or more money spent. It wasn't exactly like that, as some of the members live with someone or have lost their jobs, so the conversations went faster, the morale was down and all that people were thinking about was how they'll survive the pandemic. " says dedicated trainer Valeria
"When we go through training with the models, we teach them how to listen and to respond to negativity in a way that makes the member stay longer and make sure they return. We said this many times, but cam models are therapists. There's nothing like talking to a beautiful woman to calm you down and take your mind from the craziness that's going on in the world." continued Valeria.
Looking at the earnings and traffic that comes into the chat rooms of the models from Studio20, we can talk about cam modeling being the job of the future. Not only do the models now know how to work a room, but know how to handle finances, have a good grip on the world's economical issues and status and for sure have a following of smart, successful people that love them.
Although there are so many misconceptions surrounding cam studios and cam models, the industry has changed a lot throughout the years, giving the entertainment industry content creators, vloggers, influencers.
