Being confident about yourself and your body is key when you plan to start broadcasting. It is perfectly normal to be shy at first but you are expected to loosen up at some point. On websites like Chaturbate you can try out how you feel about broadcasting for many people by broadcasting as exhibitionist. You are limited in what you are allowed to show before you verify your age and identity and people cannot tip you. All it takes is a username, a password of your choice, your birthday, your gender, a confirmation that you are indeed a human, accepting the terms of service and you are ready to go. It is not required to fill out the e-mail field, so broadcasting as exhibitionist can be fully anonymous.

Now your broadcast is listed on Chaturbate's homepage and highlighted by a NEW tag to give you special attention. The first thing you should do is change your room subject. It will be shown on the homepage and on top of your video feed. Click the white bar saying YourNickname’s room above your broadcast window to change it. A good room subject would be the type of broadcaster you are and informing them that it is your first time on cam (MILF’s First Time on Cam! / Twink’s First Time on Cam!).

Room Subject Screenshot

You will quickly see people joining your room. Their nicknames appear in different colours, these colours have a meaning:

Orange stands for broadcasters, in your own room this will be only you.

Red is the colour of moderators, they will help you handling your chat.

Grey viewers have no tokens to spend.

Light blue viewers own tokens but have not tipped more than 50 lately or have chosen not to show how much they have tipped.

Blue viewers have tipped more than 50 tokens within the past 2 weeks.

Purple viewers have tipped more than 250 tokens within the past 2 weeks.

Dark purple viewers have tipped more than 1000 tokens within the past 2 weeks.

Chatting with your viewers will not only give them a good time but can help you loosen up and relax. However it is very important to keep your chat in a good mood. You can silence or ban people that are demanding or rude by clicking on their name. A silence will make them unable to chat in your room but keep viewing your broadcast, a ban will block them from viewing your broadcast aswell. There are several options to handle your chat by left-clicking on a username and choosing an option from the popup.

  • Ignore Viewers

    If a viewer pesters you, but does not interrupt the chat, you can choose to ignore the viewer. This way only you won't be able to see, what the viewer posts in the chat. Ignoring a viewer is indefinite, you have to manually unignore the viewer if you wish to.

  • Silence Viewers

    Silencing viewers will block them from posting in your chat for 6 hours. They will still be able to watch your broadcast and once you are verified they will still be able to tip you even while they are silenced. Choose this option for spammers or other broadcasters promoting their cam.

  • Kick/Ban Viewers

    Kicking a user from your room will remove them from chat and will ban them from accessing your broadcast and profile page. Use this option if silencing did not help or if you simply don't want to see the viewer again. Kicks/Bans are IP-based and bind to their username. It will also block access from your broadcast and profile page if the viewer decides to logout or use a different username as long as the IP adress remains the same. You can clear bans from your settings tab.

  • Promote Viewers to Moderators

    Moderators can help you keep your chat under control so you can focus on your broadcast. Moderators gain the ability to private message you and your viewers and can silence viewers for 6 hours. They can not kick or ban people from your room, only you are able to do so. Moderators are highlighted in red to give them special attention. By default they will lose their rights after 24 hours, you can increase the duration to up to 6 months in your settings.

You will notice that your viewers would like to see more of you and will have special requests. While your age and identity are not verified viewers can not tip you, as soon as you are verified you should ask them to tip you in advance and request it through tip notes. The most common amount for requests that are considered a flash is 25 tokens. It is up to you to value yourself higher or lower, but don’t be too greedy, happy viewers are returning viewers.

After your show has finished inform your viewers when you will be broadcasting again, a schedule will keep people returning while gathering new viewers.

Once you start your next broadcast let your followers know you are live by sending them an e-mail notification. Click Send them an email notification above your broadcast window.
