OnlyFans is an NSFW (Not Safe For Work) site, so be careful not to open the app at work because you can get into hot water with the hr department. The app gained traction with the onset of the pandemic in 2020, when sex workers could no longer earn a living as they did previously. So, without further ado. Let’s dive into this blog and learn some of the ways to start making money on OnlyFans.
What is OnlyFans?
It is an app that was originally launched in 2016 and is a subscription-based social media platform. It is an app where you can sell or purchase mature and original content. It is an adult site where users post NSFW photos and videos to their accounts. From there, people can get access to their content which is protected by a paywall that can be accessed through a monthly subscription fee.
The price range of an OnlyFans subscription can range anywhere from $4.99 to 49.99. When things went awry in March of 2020, the platform saw a sharp increase in its number of subscribers and creators. For some people, this is a full-time job, while for others, it is a way to diversify their income or just a side hustle.
1. Don’t expect to be successful from day one
There is a lot that goes behind curating an excellent and successful OnlyFans account. Unless you are already a celebrity, adult actor, or influencer, don’t expect to be a successful OnlyFans creator from the beginning. Growth doesn’t come easy, and you have to put yourself into it to grow a steady income and fan-based.
You’ll need to promote your page regularly, and this will be done by creating an account on other social media platforms like TikTok and Twitter. We will delve deeper into how to grow your platform later down the line. The amount is new followers, and subscribers will grow over time if you promote and pump content on a regular basis.
2. Don’t ignore your fans
Your fans are the money-making you money, and they will try to interact with you all the time. While replying to messages all day can seem overwhelming, you should do your best to interact with your fans and reply to them. Make it clear that you can’t respond to everyone but make it a point to talk to at least a couple of fans.
Also, thank them for their support; this is good for their psyche as it makes it seem like you are creating a bond with them, and this will allow you to curate content that they are looking for. Make custom content for your fans, and you can even have your dm open where they can ask for private video, for a certain price, of course.
There is no kink-shaming involved; if you are doing something that makes them happy, then it’s a win-win situation. If someone asks you something that you are not comfortable with, then politely decline their offer because, at the end of the day, your aim is to keep your fans happy, and by interacting with them, you are making sure that they stay subscribed to your page.
3. Promote on a regular basis
There is an audience for your content out there; you just have to promote it regularly to reach said audience. One thing to have a successful OnlyFans account is to promote it regularly. You will have a following, no matter your sexuality, gender identity, color, and body size.
Take advantage of other social media and create content on them. Post some NSFW posts on Twitter and Reddit, and you will gain a following from there. Post teasers on Twitter, and you can even post snippets of your original videos for people to be enthralled by your content, and this is a way to attract them to subscribe to your page.
Most people used to use Tumblr for adult content before, but after they rolled up on adult content, Twitter became the new breeding ground for posting adult videos. One way to gain followers is by using paid content, and you can also collaborate with other OnlyFans creators to gain a following.
There are a lot of OnlyFans creators out there the wear masks or blur their faces to protect their private life. You don’t have to show your face if you aren’t comfortable with that. You are the one that will create boundaries; only let your subscribers in and know whatever you are comfortable with.
There is an audience for as long as you have an aesthetically pleasing body or no matter your body type; however, you look out there. You can make it big without having to show your face, but you will have to create engaging content that will attract people to subscribe to your page.
Again the key to having a successful OnlyFans is constancy; this is what will rake in more followers and make people want to subscribe to your page. You can even adopt a stage name or pseudonym to keep your identity a secret. There is a way to make money on OnlyFans even if you don’t want to show your face, don’t forget that.
The thing with OnlyFans or sex work, in general, is as long as you aren’t hurting anyone, they go for it. There is no shaming in being a sex worker, and we need to destigmatize the oldest profession in the books. So, if you want to create an OnlyFans, have fun, discover your sexuality and be consistent.
