Web Cam Modeling on Live Jasmin
Live Jasmin – The Devil is in the Details
At first glance, you might think that Live Jasmin is the perfect place to start your new career as a webcam model. The site is modern, beautiful, and packed with unique features that make it pleasure to use. Add to that the fact that Live Jasmin is currently the most trafficked webcam site on Earth, and it looks like a total no-brainer.
But when you dig a little deeper, you will realize that Live Jasmin may not be the webcam modeling utopia it first appears to be.
First, let’s talk about the traffic. Live Jasmin is the undisputed leader in raw hits and Alexa rankings. They’re ranked even higher than Chaturbate review. The graphics below are pulled in real-time directly from Alexa. The lower the number on the left-hand side means the higher the site is ranked in global traffic.
BUT! The raw numbers are only part of the story. The reason Live Jasmin’s traffic numbers are crushing everyone else is because of the annoying LJ popups on all the Porn Tubes. Seriously, every porn tube in the world seems to have a Live Jasmin popup, and since the tubes deliver MILLIONS of pops a day, those popups definitely contribute to LJ’s Alexa rankings.
And it’s not fair or accurate to count popup traffic the same way we count regular site traffic. Evidence of this is clear when we look at the Engagement stats from SimilarWeb. Visitors to Chaturbate review spend nearly 9 Times as much time on CB as visitors to LJ. They visit 6 Times more pages and models than LJ users. And the bounce rates between the sites are not even close. So even though Chaturbate has a slightly smaller traffic footprint, their users are *dramatically* more engaged and productive on the site.
So… all traffic isn’t created equal. But let’s put the stats aside for a moment, and look at the cam models working on Live Jasmin. Surely the girls are making money, or they wouldn’t be camming there, right? Well yes and no.
The overwhelming majority of models on Live Jasmin are working from modeling studios in South America, Eastern Europe, and Asia. Now, I don’t have a problem with the models. They have just as much right to be there as anyone else (for sure!). But the reason they’re there is NOT because Live Jasmin is so spectacular or because they’re getting rich. It’s because they don’t have a choice. Many of them don’t own their own computers or broadcasting equipment and they don’t realize that there are much better opportunities online.
These models do what the studio owners tell them to do and they rely on the owners to provide the computers and internet access for them. Then the studio owner receives all the paychecks himself and pays his models a (very) small, hourly rate. As a result, the models earn pennies on the dollar. All of this helps to explain why [A] Live Jasmin only pays 30% and [B] they have verrry few models active from the US, Canada, UK, Australia, etc.
To clarify, Live Jasmin claims to payout up to 60%, but the vast majority of models are never going to see those kinds of numbers. Jasmin uses a complicated sliding payout scale, so you start out at 30% on your first $100. Then 35% on hour next $200. Then 40% on your next $350. Then 45% on your next $850. And on, and on, and on… It’s so complicated they need a 6 page PDF to explain it.
But let’s look at the specific features offered by Live Jasmin.

|Alexa Traffic Rank:||
|Recommended For:||Some models might disagree with me, but I honestly can’t recommend Live Jasmin to anyone. Their payouts are too low. Their policies are complicated and are not model-friendly. They do offer a Fanclub option, but the iFriends review Fanclub system is better in every possible way – especially with payouts of 50% to 100% (instead of LJ’s pitiful 25%).|
As I said at the beginning of this article… at first glance, Live Jasmin looks like a promising option for aspiring webcam models. But when you dig into the details, it’s clear that Live Jasmin is just not a good choice. Their payouts are among the lowest in the industry. They have a reputation for nickel and dimeing their models (that 6 Page PDF kind of speaks for itself). And I hate to say it but their Fanclubs are a joke.
It’s really too bad because they do have a large volume of traffic, and their site has a beautiful/modern feel.
Long story short… I cannot recommend Live Jasmin for new webcam models at all. If you are just beginning in the web cam modeling business, you’d be much, MUCH better off signing up with Chaturbate review. They offer true 50% payouts, their traffic is more productive, and at the end of the day, their Free Chat system does a much better job of raking in the cash.
