So, you decided to jump aboard on the platform that is OnlyFans, a platform that’s taking the world of adult entertainment by storm. And even though you see a lot of other models making thousands of dollars per month, that’s not really working out that great for you.
But that shouldn’t bring you down – even the best OnlyFans girls started somewhere, and there is always a way to maximize your income and make as much money as possible. That being said, if you seem to be struggling with that aspect, let’s check out some tips on how you can make more money on OnlyFans.
Patience is Key
This isn’t really a tip – it’s more of a disclaimer. But success on platforms like OnlyFans doesn’t come overnight (unless you’re Bhad Bhabie, apparently), and it takes a lot of work and dedication to make it big. The first thing you should do is not give up. It might sound like a cliché, but persistence is key to platforms like this.
Start posting content you’re comfortable with, that you know will attract new people. Some will say that being daring and posting things nobody else is posting is key, but OnlyFans is all about engagement and being closer to your subscribers. This is why you need to be comfortable with what you’re posting, and you need your subscribers to see that.
Use Your Other Social Media
This is important for those of you who already have a strong presence on other social media, such as an Instagram profile or a YouTube channel. If you’re already popular on one social media network, why not take advantage of that, and use it to promote your OnlyFans?
You would be surprised at how well this works, provided the people who follow your other social media channels actually want to see the content you’d post on OnlyFans. In many cases, what works best is to use something like Instagram to post teaser photos. If you post full nudes on OnlyFans, for example, only post a tasty teaser on Instagram that won’t violate their rules and policies, and let your followers know that they can find more on your OnlyFans. Teasing works better than you’d expect, especially if you’re posting explicit content.
Set the Right Rate
Setting the right rate can actually make or break your entire OnlyFans earning system. The platform’s minimum fee for profiles that aren’t free is $4.99, but whether you stick with that, or you put a higher subscription price, is up to you.
The first thing you want to see is how many other OnlyFans creators that are in your niche charge. This will give you a baseline to start with, and you can use that to set a competitive rate afterward. If you want to really be competitive, you need to compare your profile and content you post to theirs and have someone objectively tell you whether or not they’d pay more for your content. This can be a good indicator of whether or not you’re overcharging, and you’ll know where you stand compared to the competition.
You could start off small because a cheap subscription is one way of guaranteeing you’ll get a lot of followers. But once you have a lot of content posted, and you know you’ll continue to post more, you should be able to put a higher subscription price because you can easily justify it.
The key thing to remember is that when you’re charging people to see your OnlyFans profile, you want to give them something in return – provide value, and they’ll stay as subscribers for a long time.
Make Use of Tips
OnlyFans has a tip menu, which is a great way to make some extra money that doesn’t come from monthly subscriptions. You can use the tip menu for pretty much whatever you want, but it’s best used as a tool to sell things you don’t really want to make available for all subscribers.
If you’re an adult model, for example, you can use your tip menu to provide custom, tailored content for whoever tips you. Make things even more engaging for them, and make them feel like you’re dedicating your attention to them only – not your entire subscriber count. This will make them feel appreciated, and the fact that they’re getting more than anyone else will make them stick around.
The tip menu can also be used to sell digital (or physical) products if you want, but that does depend on what kind of content you use OnlyFans for, and whether or not this is even an option. Again – you’ve got the complete freedom of what you use it for but used right, it can be an incredible tool in your arsenal, and can very well boost your profits to a level you didn’t expect.
