OnlyFans is an NSFW (Not Safe For Work) website. The app became popular with the onset of the pandemic in 2020 when sex workers could no longer earn a living as they used to. So be careful not to open the app at work, or you could get in trouble with HR. So, without further delay. Let’s dive into this blog and learn some of our tips to have an OnlyFans.
1. Think about what content you want to create
First of all, OnlyFans is a site where you can create adult content. You don’t have to create such content if you don’t feel comfortable doing so. You can be a male fitness trainer and offer content and other fitness tips on OnlyFans as a way to be exclusive. Also, your audience may be men who want to stay in shape.
It may seem odd that they can get fitness tips from a place that people mistakenly refer to as a “porn site.” But you’d be surprised how many content creators can succeed on OnlyFans without showing any skin (hint: there are a lot). If you want to create adult content, go for it.
2. Know your audience
To be successful on OnlyFans, one of the most important things is to know your audience. As a man, you can create content that appeals to your type of followers. As a man, you can create content that can appeal to a female audience. At the same time, you can also appeal to other men. Yes, there are male content creators who target a gay audience.
If this is the case for you, know that there is no shame in doing so. If you are a straight male, it is clear that your audience will be female. But you should know that you will also have fans and subscribers who are homosexual men. The point is that you don’t have to be a homosexual man to succeed on OnlyFans.
3. Promote your OnlyFans page on social media
Many OnlyFans content creators promote their OnlyFans pages on all social media. In fact, this is the best way to promote them. Don’t know where to promote your OnlyFans page? Don’t worry; we have some ideas. However, the point is to choose the channels where you are most active. If you’re just starting out, it would be wise to only choose a maximum of two, so you don’t get carried away.
Reddit is perfect for OnlyFans founders. Want to know why? Because there are subreddits that target a specific audience. Does your OnlyFans content tend to attract male homosexuals? Find relevant subreddits and post preview content that leads them to your OnlyFans page. Again, you’re targeting the right audience. There may also be subreddits that have a mix of gay men and straight women. Therefore, it is crucial that you know your target audience.
Reddit gets a lot of traffic every day… but will your OnlyFans page do the same? Make a note of the subreddits where you plan to post your promotional content on a regular basis. If you forget, don’t forget to post the link to your OnlyFans page in your profile bio (regardless of which social media channel you’re on).
4. Know how to make money
Most OnlyFans founders make money from subscriptions, tips, and standalone content. It’s important for you to set prices that are fair and reasonable for your audience. If your goal is to make as much money as possible, you should cover as many bases as possible. For example, if you’re creating content, you want to offer tips every time you create something. Also, the bigger your follower account is, the more chances you have of making money on the platform.
Remember that out of all your followers, a small percentage (1-5%) will eventually become paid subscribers. Something to keep in mind: OnlyFans should be considered a revenue stream that should be treated like something you do on the side. Yes, people make more than a 9-to-5 job. But don’t make it your main source of income (and for heaven’s sake, don’t quit your job). Do it with the mindset that you want to make your fans happy. Make sure the thought of making money is secondary.
5. You should not use your real identity
One of the concerns of OnlyFans content creators is how people might learn about them. There is a misconception that OnlyFans is a porn site because it allows adult content and that a handful of its content creators are porn stars and cam girls. That might not be so far from the truth. But the problem is that there are people who will take these claims at face value. And they will try to get you in trouble for it. So what can you do to reduce the risk?
OnlyFans can be anonymous. You can use a pseudonym or an artist name. And you don’t have to show your face. You should look good if you have an aesthetically pleasing body. You may even have a handful of followers who like other parts of your body and are less interested in your face. And you can still make a lot of money with OnlyFans.
Above all, you should have fun creating consistent content for your followers and subscribers. Don’t make content creation a chore. You have a life and other things to do. However, if you plan to create content regularly, set a schedule that you know is easy to follow.
