Look no further: We’ve created this tutorial with our friends at MyQueerFans.com who have reviewed over 100 OnlyFans accounts and have a pretty good idea of what works.
Starting your OnlyFans is the easy part, but making money takes time and persistence. That’s why we have list of 8 helpful tips to get you started and find your following.
After the NSFW jump, learn how to attract subscribers, create enticing content and most importantly, cash in!
1. Sign Up for OnlyFans
First of all, you’ll need to create an OnlyFans account and register your domain name. Think of a memorable name that will stand out amongst the crowd and let everyone know what you’re all about. Think of a niche target audiences like ‘tattoo’ or ‘beard’ and build your name around that.
When you’re ready to register, sign up at OnlyFans.com to get started.
Once you have created your profile, be sure to set a monthly subscription price that is reasonable for a new OnlyFans page. We would recommend starting at $5 USD/month and increasing the price after a few months when you have more content. The average price for an OnlyFans is around $8-10 USD/month.
2. Promote on Twitter
Build a social media presence to build a loyal fan base who will eventually subscribe to your OnlyFans. We recommend using Twitter since they allow X-rated content on their platform. You can use Instagram as well but they’re more restrictive in terms of posting explicit content.
When you create a Twitter account, choose a username/handle that matches your OnlyFans username. This will make it easier for your followers on Twitter to find you on OnlyFans. Be sure to include your OnlyFans link in your bio.
3. Post Regularly to Build a Following
In order to get attention on social media, you’ll have to post quality content on a consistent basis. For Twitter we recommend posting a few times daily as posts can be buried rather quickly. On Instagram you can build traction with just 1 post per day. Include videos and/or photos in your posts as they will be much better at attracting likes and followers.
Another way to gain followers on social media is to follow everyone who is currently following an account that is similar to yours. These users will receive a notification that you have followed them and they’ll be more likely to check out your page and follow back. Most social media platforms cap the number of users you can follow in one day to around 40-50 users. Get into the habit of following users several times a week until you build a large enough following.
4. Create OnlyFans Content
Once you have started your OnlyFans and social media accounts, you should start to plan your content. Decide what you are willing to show and where your boundaries are before you dive head first into the world of adult content creation. Be sure you know what you are comfortable sharing as subscribers are attracted to confident performers, first and foremost.
When you are first getting started, we would suggest gradually sharing more of yourself, like a strip tease. This strip tease will give your subscribers a reason to stick around and pay for another month to see what you do next. Once you’re more comfortable, feel free to try new things and experiment with the type of content you produce. Plan to post a photo or video 3-4 times a week on OnlyFans.
After a few months of creating content, you should have enough to start setting up reviews and shoutouts. There are several sites that review OnlyFans pages and help you promote your content to a broader audience. The more websites you are featured on, the more you will attract a sizeable subscriber base.
Shoutouts are posts on other OnlyFans pages which are also useful at reaching new subscribers as well. Typically, a shoutout will include a video preview of your content along with links back to your page.
6. Fan Interaction
The key to a successful OnlyFans page is fan interaction, which includes responding to requests, comments and questions. The more you engage with your followers, the longer they’ll stick around and keep subscribing.
Be sure to set boundaries with your followers as well as they may request more of your time than you can provide. Ultimately, you should establish a polite rapport but know when to end a conversation that is too demanding or makes you feel uncomfortable.
7. Run Sales/Promotions
Another way to increase subscriptions is to offer periodic promotions. OnlyFans will allow you to run a promotion for new or returning subscribers with up to 40% off the subscription price.
8. Have Fun!
As we mentioned before, subscribers tend to enjoy performers who are confident and self-assured. Slowly build your content and keep your fans coming back for more. At the end of the day, if you’re not enjoying it, then it likely isn’t something you can sustain in the long term. Patience and persistence are key to building a successful OnlyFans.
