What is OnlyFans?

OnlyFans is the most popular site for earning money by selling photos and videos via subscription.

Most often, adult content is sold on OnlyFans.

This article is a detailed step-by-step guide on how to start making money on OnlyFans.

We will go through all the steps with examples and tips on how to avoid mistakes.

OnlyFans Explained for Beginner Creators

How does OnlyFans work?

Step by step:

  1. Create an account: Verify and set up your OnlyFans profile.
  2. Upload content: Add photos and videos.
  3. Set a price: For monthly access to your profile.
  4. Promote your account: Through social media, adult sites, or advertising services.

How much can you earn?

Earnings depend on:

  1. Quality and quantity of content: You don't need professional photoshoots; photos taken on a phone will do.
  2. Promotion strategy: You need to find a way to bring subscribers to your page; they won't appear there by themselves.
  3. Interaction with subscribers: Building personal relationships motivates subscribers to pay more and not cancel their subscriptions.

Some creators who already had their audience (models, bloggers, celebrities) can earn a lot, sometimes more than $1M per month.

But there are also creators who didn't have an audience but managed to reach $100K+ per month.

It’s a lot of work, and usually, it involves a whole team.

I help creators without a team or audience to go from zero to $10K+ per month. In this article, I've gathered all the experience.

Here is an example of earnings from one of the creators I helped.

This is the result after the third month of work.

If you find this article useful, you can register through my referral link.

Then, OnlyFans will share part of their commission with me.

This does not affect your earnings in any way.

Participation in the referral program motivates me to give working recommendations because I earn only if you earn.

If you have any questions, you can ask them through the contact form.

What is the commission for OnlyFans?

The OnlyFans percentage cut is 20%.

This is the standard commission for such services.

When to Start an OnlyFans

Is OnlyFans right for you?

There are different creators on OnlyFans – bloggers, musicians, fitness trainers.

But adult content sells best on OnlyFans.

Why?

  1. Recognizable brand and large audience: OnlyFans has over 210 million users who already pay for adult content.
  2. Many tools for earning: These tools are designed for monetizing adult content, including message automation, pay-per-view content, and tips. They simplify the process and boost creators' earnings.

If you plan to monetize other types of content, explore how to earn on Patreon.

Can you work anonymously?

Yes.

OnlyFans guarantees security and confidentiality for creators.

  1. Pseudonym: Your real name is not displayed anywhere, and you can work under a pseudonym.
  2. Country blocking: You can block access to your page from users in certain countries.
  3. Anonymity: Some creators successfully work on OnlyFans without showing their face.

Here is an example of a creator who does not show their face.

Do No-Face Creators Make Money

Can couples work together?

Of course, you can upload content as a couple.

Here is an example of a couple on OnlyFans.

By the way, they also do not show their faces.

Do Couple OnlyFans Make Money

Can men work on OnlyFans?

Yes, but keep in mind that the main audience is also men.

Can Men Earn on OnlyFans

Do you need an agency?

There are companies that help to grow OnlyFans accounts.

They handle advertising and communication with subscribers; the model usually only needs to provide the content.

I recommend first understanding how everything works on your own. After studying the article, you will have enough knowledge to start earning.

If you want to scale your business and start cooperating with an agency, I recommend a trusted one – Sparks.

Can you work without English?

No.

The profile description, publications, and communication with subscribers need to be in English.

If you have an intermediate level of English, use Grammarly.

This service checks everything you write, corrects errors, and gives style tips.

What is the next step?

Let's understand the ways to earn money on OnlyFans.

How OnlyFans Works to Make Money

How to make money on OnlyFans?

There are three ways:

  1. Paid subscription.
  2. Sale of individual content.
  3. Tips.

Subscription

How does the subscription work on OnlyFans?

You set the subscription price for your account, from $4.99 to $50 per month.

Here is an example of a profile with a paid subscription.

How OnlyFans Subscriptions Work

You can also make your page free and earn by selling individual content.

Sale of individual content (Pay-Per-View)

You can sell individual photos and videos with pay-per-view.

The price can range from $3 to $100.

Here’s what PPV content looks like in private messages.

The creator I subscribed to sent me a message offering to buy a video for $29.99.

How to Earn from PPV on OnlyFans

Important points:

  1. If you have a free OnlyFans page, you can sell PPV content both on your OnlyFans feed and in private messages.
  2. If you have a subscription price set for your OnlyFans page, you can sell PPV only in private messages.

Also, PPV in private messages can be used to sell custom content.

Custom content refers to unique content created specifically for a particular subscriber.

Tips

Tips on OnlyFans are a source of additional income without extra effort.

Subscribers can:

  1. Send tips with any post.
  2. Send you a private message with added tips.
  3. Use the "Send a Tip" button on the profile page.
Don't forget to thank everyone who sends you tips. Building personal relationships with your subscribers is an important part of success.

Here’s an example of a paid post that collected more than a thousand dollars in tips.

What Are OnlyFans Tips

So, we’ve figured out how to make money on OnlyFans.

Let's move on to creating an account.

How to Start an OnlyFans

How to create an OnlyFans account?

Follow the link.

Enter:

  1. Name.
  2. Email.
  3. Password.

Enter your real name; only moderators will see it.

You will be able to set a pseudonym later, which subscribers will see.

How to Register on OnlyFans

After registration, you will see a notification to confirm your email.

Follow the link in the email from OnlyFans.

Email Verification for OnlyFans

After confirming your email, open the menu and click "Become a creator."

How to Become a Creator on OnlyFans

At this step, you need to add:

  1. Avatar Image (Profile Photo): A face photo works best. But other body parts can be used; the main thing is all photos should be yours.
  2. Header Image (Banner): Show yourself and your content.
  3. About Me Information (Bio): Introduce yourself and interest potential subscribers.

Next will be examples and recommendations.

How to Set Up a Profile on OnlyFans

How to choose a name for OnlyFans?

You can set the profile name after verification.

Since we need to write a bio now, it makes sense to think about the name at the same time.

We have a "Display name" and "Username":

  1. Display name: This is the name that will be displayed in our profile.
  2. Username: This is the address of our page, for example, onlyfans.com/username.

Usually, they are related.

My "Display name" everywhere is Oleksandr Slobodskyi, and my "Username" is slobodskyi.

Example of an OnlyFans Profile

You can use ChatGPT to generate ideas for OnlyFans username and bio.

Create a free account and write to the bot:

I am an adult content creator seeking help with ideas for my OnlyFans page. Please provide 10 username suggestions that are catchy, tempting, and easy to remember. Additionally, I need 10 ideas for my OnlyFans bio — a short description of myself and my content that motivates people to subscribe. You can use emojis in the bio. My content can be described as [cute, faceless, fit, and involving roleplay].

Replace the text [cute, faceless, fit, and involving roleplay] with keywords that describe your content.

Do not use pornographic terms, as ChatGPT does not respond to such questions.

ChatGPT will give you a list of ideas to build on.

Onlyfans Display Name and Username Ideas Generator

How to choose?

  1. The name should be easy to remember and unique.
  2. The name should support the image.
Ideally, come up with a name that will match on all the sites where we will promote in the future.

Why?

So that users can find all your links with a single search.

An example with a popular OnlyFans creator – Jamelizz.

By googling her name, we immediately get links to OnlyFans and social networks.

Example of Choosing a Name that Matches on Both Twitter and OnlyFans

Which services you need specifically depends on how you plan to promote.

Ideally, the nickname matches on:

  1. OnlyFans.
  2. Reddit.
  3. X (Twitter).
  4. Instagram.
  5. TikTok.
  6. Linktree.

How to quickly check the availability of a name on different sites?

Use Namecheckr.

Namecheckr checks availability on multiple services at once.

How to Choose a Name for OnlyFans

If you need to check a nickname on a site that is not on Namecheckr, enter the URL with the nickname and check if such a page exists.

For example:

  1. https://linktr.ee/YourName
  2. https://tiktok.com/@YourName

If you come up with a nickname that is available on most of the necessary services and is only taken somewhere, it’s not a problem.

You can add a few characters at the end; it will still be easy to google.

Jamelizz sometimes uses the nickname Jamelizzzz.

How to write a bio for OnlyFans?

The bio helps potential subscribers understand what to expect from your profile and why they should subscribe.

  1. Introduce yourself: Share interests or unique traits that set you apart from others.
  2. Content: Describe the type of content you plan to post.
  3. Schedule: Indicate the frequency of updates. If you’re just starting, make the schedule more flexible, for example, promising weekly updates instead of a strict schedule.

Here are some options suggested by ChatGPT.

Bio Ideas for OnlyFans Generated by ChatGPT

A few examples of real descriptions.

Examples of Bios for OnlyFans

A few principles:

  1. Authenticity: It's important to stay true to yourself. Pay attention to how you communicate with friends and try to transfer this style to your profile. Using emojis can make the text more friendly and understandable.
  2. Simplicity: Remember that your main product is visual content. While the bio text is important as a presentation, it should not distract from the main content. Keep it short and concise.

As your audience grows, you will start to get the same requests from subscribers.

Add answers to frequently asked questions in the profile description to save time.

How to choose an profile picture and banner?

Choosing an profile picture and banner is the most important part of working on your profile design.

Since we will be selling visual content, the avatar and cover give an idea of what is inside the profile.

  1. It’s great to use a face photo for the avatar.
  2. For the cover, you can combine several photos.

Examples for inspiration.

Examples of Photos and Covers for OnlyFans

What size is OnlyFans banner?

The cover size is 1800 by 540 pixels.

Consider how the cover will display on the phone.

Cover Size for OnlyFans Banner

On the phone, part of the content on the sides will be cut off.

I made a PSD template that will help you correctly place the content. Download it from Google Drive.

Make sure that the important content falls into the white zone and will not be cut off on the phone.

After designing the profile, you need to go through verification.

How to verify an account on OnlyFans?

To pass verification, select your country and confirm that you are 18 years old.

Documents and personal data are not publicly displayed anywhere.

Verification is necessary to confirm your age.

If your country is not on the list, create an account on Fansly.

This is the main alternative to OnlyFans.

Age Verification at OnlyFans

It’s better to go through verification on your phone, as you will need to take photos of documents and a selfie.

Click "Complete Verification."

How to get verified on OnlyFans

Choose a document for verification:

  1. Passport.
  2. Identity Card.
  3. Driver's License.
Verification Process: Choosing a Document

Take a photo of the document:

  1. Take the photo in good lighting. Daylight from a window works best. You can place the document on the windowsill so it is well-lit.
  2. Place a white sheet of paper under the document so it doesn’t blend with the background.
  3. Try to place the phone directly above the document, not at an angle.
Verification Process: Document Photo

After taking photos of the documents, you will need to take a selfie.

Verification Process: Selfie

Done!

The first step of verification is completed.

Successful Verification on OnlyFans

Now you need to fill out the creator form and upload the document photos and a photo of yourself holding the documents again.

At this step, you will need to provide an address and links to social networks.

Only moderators see these links.

I recommend giving a link to your Instagram. Make sure the profile is open; moderators need to understand that you are a real person.

During verification, you may have an issue with the address.

OnlyFans sometimes glitches and complains about the postal code or the address itself.

A few tips:

  1. Do not use apostrophes in transliteration. For example, if you need to specify a region, write “Odeska” instead of “Odes'ka.
  2. In the address, specify only the street and house number. If the street name consists of two words, use one or combine them. Not “Ivana Mazepy 56/12,” but “Mazepy 56.”
  3. If it complains about the postal code but everything else fits, try adding or removing a couple of characters.
  4. Sometimes it helps to just cut and paste the address again. It sounds dumb, but it works. Just copy, paste, and submit several times in a row.
Creator Form for Verification

You will need to upload the document photo and a selfie holding the document again.

If you plan to post content not only with yourself, upload the release form.

You can download it by clicking "Sample of the Release Form."

Uploading Documents and Photos for Verification

If you cannot pass verification on OnlyFans, I recommend reading my article on how to earn on Fansly.

OnlyFans profile settings

After passing verification, all creator tools will be available to us.

Let's briefly go through each menu item:

  1. My profile: Link to your profile.
  2. Referrals: Here you can get a link to invite other models.
  3. Collections: List of your subscribers, notes, and lists.
  4. Queue: Queue of posts and messages.
  5. Vault: Storage of all uploaded content.
  6. Settings: Profile settings.
  7. Statements: Balance of money and withdrawal requests.
  8. Statistics: Earnings and profile visit statistics.
  9. Release forms: Upload permissions for content with other people.
OnlyFans Profile Settings and Statistics

What to do next:

  1. Set the subscription price.
  2. Create a welcome message.
  3. Upload content.

How to choose a subscription price on OnlyFans?

First, you need to determine whether your account will be paid or free.

  1. Free account: Suitable for beginners while you find your format and publication frequency. You can earn by selling additional content and tips.
  2. Paid account: Suitable for those who already have an audience or a clear promotion strategy. You can earn both on subscriptions and on selling additional content and tips.

In the future, you can change the price and make a free account paid.

I recommend starting with a free one. When you receive so many messages from subscribers that you can no longer respond to everyone, you can switch to a paid account.

How to choose a price?

Most paid accounts set the price in the range of $5 to $20 per month (data from Hubite).

This is the optimal range to focus on, considering that the main audience of OnlyFans is from the US, UK, and Canada.

If you have a paid account but few subscribers, the problem may not be in the price. It’s important to find your target audience who is willing to pay for your content.

How to set the subscription price on OnlyFans?

Open the menu and select "Settings."

How to Set a Subscription Price on OnlyFans

In the settings, select "Subscription price and bundles."

Setting Subscription Prices on OnlyFans

In the "Price per month" field, specify the monthly subscription cost.

The price can be from $4.99 to $50.

To make the page free, leave the field empty.

How to choose a subscription price on OnlyFans

By clicking on "Start promotion campaign," you can enable a promotion.

You can set who the promotion will be available to:

  1. New subscribers: For new subscribers.
  2. Expired subscribers: For those whose subscription has expired.
  3. Both new and expired: For everyone.

And the type of promotion:

  1. Free trial: Free access for a certain period.
  2. First month discount: Discount on the purchase of the first month.

We can specify the exact number of free access days, limit the number of participants, and set the end date of the promotion.

You can also add text to provide more details about the promotion.

I recommend creating promotions for new subscribers with a big discount on the first month's purchase, as well as giving discounts to those whose subscriptions have expired.

Promotions help boost sales.

Promotion Campaign on OnlyFans

How do promotions look on the profile?

Example of a Subscription Discount on OnlyFans

You can also offer a discount for subscribing for several months at once.

Setting Up Subscription Bundle Discounts on OnlyFans

In the "Free Trial Link" section, you can generate a unique discount link.

How is the "Free Trial Link" used?

When promoting your profile with other models or through different sites, create unique links to analyze which advertising works best.

Each link will show the statistics of clicks and subscriptions.

Setting Up Free Trial Links on OnlyFans

How to create a welcome message?

This is a message that the user receives in their inbox immediately after subscribing.

It is set up once and then automatically sent to all new subscribers.

Usually, it thanks the user for subscribing or sells something. I advise making it simple and sweet. I do not recommend aggressive selling in the first message.

What two tasks does the welcome message solve?

  1. Expressing gratitude: Say thank you and give a pleasant piece of content. You can record a separate video specifically for the welcome message. If speaking in English is uncomfortable for you, just smile and wave, and add a message in text.
  2. Engagement: Ask what the subscriber liked about your profile. What content would they like to see? Engaging in conversation with you makes them much more likely to buy your content and renew their subscription in the future.

Here is an example of a good welcome message.

Here is an example of a bad welcome message.

Bad Welcome Message on OnlyFans

To create a welcome message, select "Chats" in the settings.

How to Create a Welcome Message on OnlyFans

Enable "Welcome message" and create the message.

Creating a Welcome Message on OnlyFans

The message is added in the same way as a post, which we will discuss further.

How to secure your account?

  1. Use unique passwords: Create a unique password for your OnlyFans account, for example, through LastPass. The same passwords increase the risk of hacking. Check on haveibeenpwned.com to see if your old passwords have been leaked.
  2. Enable two-step authentication: Use SMS or the Google Authenticator app for additional protection when logging in from a new device. You can do this in "Settings → Account → Two Step Authentication."
  3. Protect your SIM card: Make sure that your SIM card cannot be reissued without your knowledge. Check the security settings on your operator’s website and avoid mentioning your number online unnecessarily.

How to protect your identity on Onlyfans?

  1. Do not disclose your address: If someone wants to send a gift, use parcel lockers or general delivery postal offices.
  2. Be cautious with your phone number: If you need to share your number, use a separate SIM card. Note that OnlyFans rules prohibit moving communication to other platforms, but sometimes subscribers share their contacts, and if you decide to write to them, do not use your primary number.
  3. Control personal information in photos and videos: Make sure your documents, recognizable interior details, or street views are not in the frame.
  4. Block unwanted users: Do not hesitate to block those who make you uncomfortable or violate your boundaries.
  5. Restrict access to your page from certain countries: You can choose which country’s users will not have access to your page. Go to "Settings → Privacy and Safety → Block by country." Note that users can bypass this restriction using VPNs.
Account Setup Checklist:
  • Design: Upload a quality avatar, cover, and write a bio.
  • Subscription: If you decide to start with a paid account, set the subscription price and add promotions.
  • Automation: Set up a welcome message for new subscribers.
Onlyfans Content Ideas

What to post on OnlyFans?

First, let's understand how to technically make a post, and then talk about where to get content ideas.

How to create a post?

To create a new post, use the "New Post" button in the menu.

How to Make Posts

Here is what the post creation form looks like.

New Post Form
  1. Add Text: Briefly describe what you are posting.
  2. Add Labels: Using labels, content can be grouped by themes and folders.
  3. Add Media: Choose photos, videos, or audio.
  4. Record Video: You can record a video directly from the browser.
  5. Record Voice: Works the same way as recording a video.
  6. Add Media from the Vault: You can pre-upload all content to the site section called the vault. While the content is in the vault, only you can see it. When creating a post or message, you can save time by selecting it from the vault instead of searching on your computer.
  7. Add Poll: You can attach a poll to your post to make it more interactive. Do you have several content ideas? Let subscribers decide what they want to see.
  8. Add Quiz: Similar to a poll, but you can choose the correct answer.
  9. Expiration Period: You can specify when the post should disappear. This feature can be useful if you temporarily launch a promotion and share a discount link.
  10. Schedule Post: You can schedule the date of posts and messages for the future.
  11. Post Price: If you have a free page, you can make paid posts in the feed.
  12. Mention Another Creator: If other creators appear in your photos and videos, you can tag them.
  13. Add to Story: You can add stories showing your days or work on content.
  14. Send Message: Switch to creating a message instead of a post.
  15. Start Profile Promotion: Go to adding subscription discounts to your profile.
  16. Create New Trial Link: Creating Free Trial Links.

How to set a price for a post?

By clicking on button 11, we can choose the cost of a specific post.

If you don’t have this button, it means you have set a subscription price.

In this case, you cannot make paid posts in the profile feed, but you can send a paid message.

How to create PPV and lock post on OnlyFans

For paid posts, you can choose a preview that will be available to everyone.

  1. Upload the media you want to sell, as well as the preview for it.
  2. Click the left arrow.
  3. Select the media for the preview.
  4. Click the left arrow to move the media to the "Free preview."
How to upload previews for PPV

Usually, the preview blurs or crops part of the content.

For example, for a 5-minute paid video, you can make a 15-second free preview to show what’s inside. This increases sales.

Here’s what it looks like in real posts.

Example of OnlyFans content with blurred parts for PPV

How to schedule a post for the future?

By clicking on button 10, you can choose the date and time of publication.

You can upload several posts in advance to maintain activity in the profile.

How to Schedule a Post

What is the best time to post?

Aim for the evening time for your audience.

When your subscribers are home in the evening, they are bored, and the likelihood of them buying something from you is much higher than if you send messages when they are at work or asleep.

The main paying audience is in the US and Western Europe.

In the "Queue" section, you can see all your messages and posts in the queue.

Queue of Posts and Messages

Where to get content ideas for OnlyFans?

What to post depends on your concept.

Some creators focus on specific themes or body parts – hands, feet, butts, cosplay, etc.

  1. If you have social networks, check which posts received the most likes.
  2. Ask your audience what they want to see.
  3. Check competitors, what and how they are doing.

Where to find models for inspiration?

In the section about promoting the OnlyFans account, I will give a table with models who actively run social networks.

You can get content ideas from them for both social networks and OnlyFans.

Also, there are model directories:

  1. Fansmetrics.com
  2. Follower.co
  3. Hubite.com

Understand that some of the top models are paid ads.

It’s not worth completely copying ideas, but you can analyze and get inspired.

How to shoot content?

No one expects professional photos and videos in 4K from you.

If you have the opportunity and desire to bother with the technical quality of the content – great, but this is not necessary.

Most often, subscribers look for a cozy atmosphere, as if their girlfriend sent them these nudes.

Therefore, creating great content is not so difficult.

I advise subscribing to TikTok photographers who create erotic photos.

In their accounts, they give tips on poses, composition, lighting, and editing.

  1. Haylie Edmiston
  2. Bethany Coral
  3. Min Xu
  4. Chloe Kinnison
  5. Maritime Boudoir
OnlyFans content ideas from TikTok

Where to find references for content?

Create a board on Pinterest and add photos you want to replicate.

After saving a few posts, recommendations will start appearing.

What queries to use in Pinterest?

  1. Boudoir poses
  2. Pin up poses
  3. Nude poses

You can also upload a photo you like to Pinterest, and it will find similar ones for you.

OnlyFans content ideas from Pinterest

Three types of content

All your content can be divided into three categories:

  1. Free: free content for advertising on social networks and adult sites.
  2. Light: high-quality but not very explicit content for posts on OnlyFans.
  3. Hot: very explicit content for additional sales in private messages through PPV.

This categorization is not strict, as it depends on your monetization model.

For example, you may decide not to sell anything extra in messages and post everything in the feed.

To simplify your life, create content of different categories in one go.

Let's analyze an example of one creator who takes several photos and videos at one location.

She shared less explicit content on Instagram.

Example of OnlyFans content for promoting on Instagram

More explicit content is shared on OnlyFans.

Example of Content on OnlyFans

Very explicit is sent as PPV in private messages.

Example of Locked Content on OnlyFans

There cannot be guaranteed content ideas that will always work.

It's like asking what to shoot on Instagram?

It depends on your niche and audience.

It will be useful to subscribe to accounts of models who are similar to you in type and make great content.

Analyzing competitors’ content will help you find ideas for yourself.

A tip that will set you apart from other models is to run an adult page like a blog, mixing erotic content with everyday life.

What does it mean to run like a blog?

Subscribers love spontaneous, live content.

Tell about yourself, how you prepare for shoots, your purchases, your lifestyle.

Make content creation a part of your life:

  1. How Your Days Look: When you wake up, when you go to sleep. What you cook, where you walk.
  2. Your Hobbies: Sports, reading, music, or movies. Share what has captivated you recently.
  3. How You Have Fun: Do you like to relax at home in silence or in a noisy company.
  4. How You Create Content: Take subscribers behind the scenes, show how you create content.

Let subscribers follow you and imagine that you are their virtual girlfriend, not just a set of hot photos on the internet.

This approach keeps subscribers hooked for many months.

Remember your safety and avoid publishing information that can identify you.

Let's look at an example of a great free account.

I like how the creator reveals herself as a person through her content.

She posts cute selfies, funny photos, and asks for subscribers' advice.

Here are a few examples.

What Content to Create on OnlyFans

How to Warm Up Your Audience

The same principle applies to content as in sex – foreplay is very important.

You can dump all your most explicit photos and videos at once, and some subscribers will be happy.

But it's much more effective to think through the context and gradually feed the content bit by bit.

As if assembling an overall picture from puzzle pieces.

Let's break it down with an example:

  1. She shoots a new batch of content and doesn't rush to publish it all at once. First, she makes a text post in which she talks about what she plans to publish.
  2. She cleverly ties it to a personal event – graduating from university. This way, we learn a little more about her and her life, and are motivated to wait for new content.

3,000 people liked the post.

What Descriptions to Make for Posts

The next day she publishes a small preview for a few seconds, further stoking interest.

This post already has 5,000 likes.

Warming Up the Audience for Paid Posts

After a hot preview and a few funny photos, we get another message.

By this time, hundreds of people are ready to buy.

Example of a Text Post on OnlyFans

And finally, the content itself!

Hundreds of subscribers have been waiting for it and decided to buy it before seeing what’s inside.

Example of PPV on OnlyFans
What I especially liked is that in the description of the post, she suggests leaving a tip for those who bought the content and think it's great.

This way, she earns not only on PPV content but also on tips, and the number of tips influences the number of purchases.

Brilliant!

If she had just published everything at once, the number of sales would have been lower.

The main thing in these warm-ups is to be honest.

Don't invent artificial news hooks, try to be yourself.

This is very noticeable through the posts.

You don't need to turn every new photo session into a series of posts for two weeks.

Think of it as part of the game, you are seducing your audience.

You are managing their imagination.

If you are interested in the topic of storytelling, I recommend the book "Save the Cat!" by Blake Snyder.

What description to make for posts?

If you are not in a specific niche (e.g., BDSM), you will probably communicate with subscribers the same way you do with romantic partners in real life – easily, sweetly, playfully.

Ideas for accompanying texts to posts can be borrowed from the Telegram chat Pasta Drips & Caps.

Do not copy exactly, change a couple of words or emojis.

Why are descriptions needed for posts?

  1. Explain what’s inside and motivate to buy.
  2. Engage in the context of the content.
  3. Create an atmosphere.

What not to do:

  1. Do not make descriptions only of emojis.
  2. Do not ask dumb banal questions like "how are you?" Engaging in conversation is good, but do it well.

As I mentioned earlier, do not copy descriptions from other models.

This way you lose individuality.

You can upload your photo to it (only if it’s not super explicit) and ask it to come up with a description.

I am an adult content creator on OnlyFans, and this is a photo of me. Could you provide me with 10 ideas I can use in a description for this photo? The descriptions should be engaging and seductive.

To upload photos to ChatGPT, you need a paid subscription.

Example of Descriptions Generated by ChatGPT

Here are some description options from ChatGPT.

Example of a Pinned Post on OnlyFans

We can also set the communication style for ChatGPT, asking it to be bolder or, on the contrary, gentler.

It is important to have your consistent tone-of-voice and style that does not change from post to post.

How and why to pin posts?

You can pin a post so that it appears at the very top of your profile feed.

In pinned posts, creators usually talk more about themselves and their content.

This is a good way to control what the newly subscribed user sees first.

Here is an example of a pinned post.

Example of Pinned Post

Specifically, in this example, the creator invites viewers from her free page to her paid page.

Some creators have two OnlyFans pages – one free and one paid. This makes sense only if you have a large audience and a team that helps run both pages simultaneously.

Two accounts can be easily merged for easier management.

How to Manage Two Accounts on OnlyFans

More examples of pinned posts can be found in the article about setting up a Fansly profile.

To pin a specific post, click on the three dots and select "Pin to your profile page."

How to Pin a Post

What is the minimum content?

Before moving on to promoting the account, you need to make 10-15 posts.

This will be enough; you don’t need to post everything you have in stock.

Try to show yourself from different sides.

Let these first posts be an introductory version of what subscribers can expect in the future.

How often to post?

It depends on how much content you can create.

It is important to fulfill the commitments provided by your subscription.

If you promised several updates a week, you need to follow through.

If you can update more often, even better.

There is no point in making 40 posts in the first week and then disappearing for a month.

If you have created a lot of content – schedule posts for the future, or use it for social networks.

What price to set for content?

Most models, regardless of their subscription type, additionally sell particularly high-quality content.

How to determine what price to set for such content?

Unfortunately, it cannot be decided once and for all.

There are two reasons for this:

  1. Your Content Will Vary: The value of your content is subjective and unique to each subscriber. There is no such thing as a price list in the subscriber’s mind for how much they are willing to pay for what. The willingness to buy something expensive is influenced more by how you built relationships with subscribers than by the content of a specific photo or video.
  2. The Audience Will Come from Different Places: For example, if subscribers come from social networks, they already know and love you. Such subscribers usually spend more than those who came from paid advertising from other models.

To find suitable prices, you need to experiment.

To understand the scope of the experiment, here are the average rates:

  1. Photos: from $3 to $10 each.
  2. Videos: length from 30 seconds to 3 minutes, price from $10 to $50.
  3. Custom: from $20 to $200.
  4. Sexting: from $100.

Of course, we all want to earn as quickly as possible.

But setting high prices is not always a good idea.

The cost of producing content and sending it to subscribers will be the same regardless of the audience size.

  1. You can send 10 photos for $100 to an audience of 500 people and get 2 sales, earning $200.
  2. You can send the same photos but for $50, and get 10 sales, earning $500.

Therefore, you need to try different options and always think about audience growth.

But don’t set prices too low either.

This way you devalue your work and complicate your life in the future.

If you sold a 10-minute video for $5 today, it will be strange if you want to sell 1 photo for the same $5 tomorrow.

What to do if your content is leaked?

If one of the subscribers copied and published your content on another site, you need to do the following:

  1. Write to support, providing links to the sites where your content was distributed without your consent, and ask them to remove it.
  2. Make a request to Google to remove the sites from search results. You can indicate that your explicit content was distributed without your consent, and Google will remove the sites from the search. Unfortunately, this will not help remove the content from the sites, but at least people won't be able to find your paid content by searching your nickname.

Can AI content be published on OnlyFans?

No, OnlyFans prohibits uploading AI-generated photos and videos.

If you want to monetize AI adult content, use alternative services:

  1. Fansly is suitable if you plan to publish generated content with a character similar to the one on the verified account. More about what Fansly is.
  2. Fanvue allows any AI content.

What are the rules of OnlyFans?

OnlyFans has rules regarding content.

  1. The photos and videos should feature only the person whose account is verified. If you want to add content with another person, you need to verify them through support. If they have their own verified account, provide a link to it in the post.
  2. The description and content should make it clear that everything happening is consensual.
  3. Sensitive topics should be played out in the description as fantasies.

The following actions and topics are prohibited:

  1. Escort Services: Offering or agreeing to real-life meetings is not allowed. It is not recommended to move communication to messengers.
  2. Incest: If you work in this niche, always add "step." Not “Dad,” but “Step Dad.” In private messages with a member, nothing serious will happen for "Daddy."
  3. Drugs: It is forbidden to glamorize drug use or portray drug intoxication.
  4. Self-harm or Suicide: Any dangerous actions, romanticization of suicide, or self-harm are prohibited.
  5. Bestiality: The participation of animals in a sexual context is prohibited. On Fansly, you can publish animals if they are not sexualized; on OnlyFans, it is better not to publish animals at all.
  6. Violence or Rape: Avoid any context in which one of the subjects of sexual action is subjected to unwanted violence and something is done to them that they do not want.
  7. Necrophilia: This is clear.
  8. Excrement-related Material: All manipulations with excrement are prohibited on OnlyFans, peeing is allowed on Fansly.

If you have a specific niche and are unsure if your content is appropriate, it’s better to check with support.

Content Checklist:
  • Minimum Content: Create 10 to 15 different posts to give subscribers an idea of what to expect in the future.
  • Albums: Structure posts by categories, organizing them into albums for easy navigation.
  • Pinned Posts: Pin a message for new subscribers at the top of your page to create a warm welcome and personal touch.
How to Communicate with Subscribers

How to Communicate with Subscribers?

Communicating with your audience takes time, but it is a valuable investment in long-term relationships.

It helps you better understand your audience, learn where they came from, and what motivated them to subscribe.

Here are a few principles:

  1. Gratitude: Express appreciation for the money spent on your content. Create a warm atmosphere, and let subscribers feel special.
  2. Interactivity: Post polls and quizzes. Encourage subscribers to participate in discussions and respond to comments.
  3. Looking Ahead: Share your plans, tell them what you are going to do, and let subscribers anticipate these events with you. For example: "I ordered new lingerie/toys, they will arrive in a week, and I can't wait to test them and create new content for you."
  4. Habit of Returning: Make surprises, send free exclusive content in private messages, so subscribers eagerly await new visits to your page.
Create exclusive content for those who have enabled auto-renewal of their subscription. An hour before the distribution, remind those who have auto-renewal disabled that you plan something special for your loyal audience.

What Tools Are Available for Communication?

Subscribers will be many, but our time is limited.

So we need to use all the technical possibilities to simplify our life.

What do we have available?

  1. Mass private message distribution.
  2. Notes about users.
  3. Changing the subscriber's name.

Let's figure it out.

How Do Mass Message Work?

Why send mass messages?

  1. Usually, people are subscribed to several models simultaneously; by sending a message, you remind them of yourself.
  2. You show that your account is active, which motivates them to subscribe or continue paying for the subscription.
  3. You can engage the user in a conversation and upsell content or sexting.

Recommendations:

  1. Balance: Don't send only paid content. Sometimes send something for free or just ask questions, and show interest in subscribers' lives. Yes, it’s a mass mailing, but someone will respond, and you can continue the conversation individually.
  2. Optimal quantity: Don’t send too many messages. A few times a day is fine, a few times an hour is too much, especially if most subscribers don’t respond.
  3. Personalized communication: Don’t send mass messages to users you already have a personal relationship with. This kills the atmosphere of exclusivity. The goal of the distribution is to engage in communication. If users are already engaged, add them to a separate list and handle them individually.

What to Send in Messages?

  1. Great free content.
  2. Occasionally send super hot paid content. Warm up the audience before sending.
  3. Ask questions, and engage in conversation. What is your favorite movie, food, sport, hobby, sex position? Find interesting questions that fit the context of your account and image. Record the answers in user notes.

How to Send a Mass Message?

Click "Messages" from the menu or on the message icon.

Messages on OnlyFans

Click the "+" in the top right corner.

Message Recipients

Select recipients.

You can send to all subscribers or specific lists.

After selecting recipients, click "Next."

Selecting Recipients for Automated Messages

Create a message.

The process of creating a post and creating a message is the same.

You can add content, set a price, and specify a sending date.

Creating OnlyFans Paid Messages

How to Make Notes About Subscribers?

While communicating with subscribers, you will learn more about them.

To keep everything in your head, write notes inside OnlyFans.

What should you usually note?

  1. Hobbies and interests.
  2. Work information. Sometimes during a conversation, you find out when a subscriber gets paid; this can also be noted and later used for sending exclusive content or sexting.
  3. Kinks, fetishes, sexual preferences.

Different people behave differently; some like to chat a lot about life, while others go straight to sexting.

You don't need to collect information about everyone using a template; it’s important to remember what the subscriber wanted to share with you.

Your audience will appreciate that you remember details.

Subscribers don’t see what you write there.

To add a note, open the chat with the subscriber and click "Edit notes."

How to Make Notes About Subscribers

How and Why to Change a Subscriber's Name?

We can change the name of an individual subscriber.

Why do this?

When you send a mass message and many people respond at once, you need to know who to prioritize.

Some creators mark the nicknames of paying users with emojis, so they stand out in the list.

Also, if you sold custom content, it makes sense to indicate the highest price for a custom purchase by a specific subscriber.

Next time you can refer to your record to understand how much to charge for this or that content.

How to Rename Subscribers

Examples of emojis:

  1. 🌟 Big Spender: Opens a lot of content, buys customs or sexting. Respond first.
  2. 💵 Payer: Sometimes opens paid content or sends tips. Respond as soon as possible.
  3. 💤 Ignore: Wastes time and buys nothing. Don’t respond or respond last.

How to Add Subscribers to Lists?

We can add users to different lists and use them for message distribution.

What kinds of lists are there?

  1. Most paying subscribers. Treat them with special attention and an individual approach.
  2. Subscribers with auto-renewal enabled. As mentioned, you can sometimes send them updates for free. This will motivate them to keep the subscription on.
  3. Fans of specific content. If you make content in different categories, you can group users into relevant lists and handle them considering what they particularly like.
  4. Subscribers who waste time and buy nothing.

Lists make sense to use when you already have a large audience. At the initial stage, you may not need to worry about it.

To create a list, go to "Collections → Create new list (plus icon)."

How to Create Lists

How Does Sexting Work on OnlyFans?

Sexting is an important source of income for many models.

Here’s how it usually works:

  1. Starting a Dialogue: You send a mass message offering free engaging content, like a light conversational question. This helps attract subscribers' attention.
  2. Developing Communication: From those who responded, you start a deeper conversation. You can steer the conversation towards sexting by suggesting a scenario, for example, describing how you miss being in bed and what the subscriber would do if they entered your room.
  3. Visualization: Additionally, you can send a short free video to enhance engagement.
  4. Filtering the Audience: Some subscribers may stop responding; don’t pay attention to them. The rest, actively participating in the dialogue, will start describing their actions and fantasies.
  5. Maintaining Interest: You keep interest with text messages, photos, and videos. The content is sent as PPV. You may have several pre-recorded video series for such cases, or you can create videos on the go, saving them for future use.
  6. Escalating Engagement: Depending on the plot development, you can create additional videos, raising the stakes and cost of each new photo or video. Subscribers who have already invested money in viewing are inclined to continue buying. You can experiment with the maximum price they are willing to pay.

Sexting continues as long as the subscriber pays.

Where to Get Scripts for Sexting?

Some models buy ideas for sexting scenarios.

You can use other people's ideas for inspiration, but I do not recommend copying them completely. Find your unique style.

Script suggestions can be found on the Adult advertising board on Telegram.

Over time, you will gather several sexting scripts with different plots and content.

Starting an engaging conversation, you can steer your chat into a suitable scenario.

The subscriber will think you are creating content in the moment, especially for them.

One subscriber may come back for sexting again and again.

To avoid getting confused about which scenario you have already used, you can assign a unique emoji to each pack and add it to the user's name.

What AI Services Are There for Chatting on OnlyFans?

There are AI services that help generate responses, engage in conversations, and upsell content.

The most popular is Botly.

Botly is installed as a browser extension, after which you will have buttons to generate responses directly in the OnlyFans interface when sending messages.

A good tool for inspiration, but again – it’s important to be consistent in communication style and not lose individuality.

Messages Checklist:
  • Mass Messages: Familiarize yourself with the functionality of mass messages, so you don't waste time on it in the future.
  • Lists: Create a list for subscribers who should be responded to quickly. Initially, it will be empty, and you will add subscribers to it later.
How to get followers on OnlyFans

How to Promote OnlyFans?

Before you start promoting your OnlyFans profile, you must make sure that the profile is ready for it.

What does it mean?

  1. Attractive and engaging avatar, cover, and bio.
  2. Subscription price set and promotional campaigns created if you decided to make a paid profile.
  3. 10+ posts with diverse content added.
  4. Content prepared for the next 2 weeks.

If everything is ready, we can move on to promotion.

The main idea of promotion is to find places where your potential audience already consumes content and offer them a small piece of your content for free.

This way, we motivate them to subscribe to your OnlyFans for access to additional content.

There are two ways:

  1. Promotion through social networks.
  2. Promotion without social networks.

How to Promote OnlyFans Using Social Networks?

Social networks are a great channel for free traffic.

Which social networks can be used?

  1. X (Twitter).
  2. Reddit.
  3. TikTok.
  4. Instagram.

Adult content is allowed on X and Reddit, but is prohibited on TikTok and Instagram, so you need to post less explicit content there.

Promotion through any social networks will include the following steps:

1. Creating an Attractive Profile

  1. Bio: Write a short and informative profile description, including keywords that describe your content.
  2. Link in Bio: Use services like Linktree to create one link that leads to a page with your main links, including OnlyFans.

2. Content

  1. Regular Posts: Post quality and visually appealing photos, videos, and stories.
  2. Teasers: Make previews of OnlyFans content to pique interest without violating social network rules. These can be partially covered photos or short clips.
  3. Stories: Post behind-the-scenes moments, Q&A, and polls.

3. Interaction with the Audience

  1. Respond to Comments and Messages: Be active and engage with subscribers to create a sense of community.
  2. Contests and Giveaways: Organize contests requiring a subscription to your OnlyFans to participate.

4. Hashtags and Geotags

  1. Hashtags: Use popular and relevant hashtags to increase the visibility of posts.
  2. Geotags: Tag your location to attract a local audience.

5. Collaboration

  1. Collaborations: Partner with other models to exchange audiences.
  2. Mutual promotion: Arrange mutual promotion in stories or posts.
Do not post a direct link to your OnlyFans page on Instagram and TikTok; use an intermediary site created through Linktree.

What is an intermediary site?

You can create a mini-site for free through the Linktr.ee service and place links to your social networks and OnlyFans on it.

In social networks, leave a link to Linktree, not a direct link to OnlyFans.

Example of a model's site.

Example of an Intermediary Site for OnlyFans

Why do this?

  1. Instagram and TikTok do not like when you leave links to adult content. At best, the reach will drop, at worst, the page may be blocked.
  2. By leaving links to social networks, you develop your community. Even if someone is not ready to subscribe to a paid page now, they can follow other free social networks, and having a live audience on social networks helps your posts get into recommendations.
  3. In the future, when you use different advertising sources, analyzing Linktree visit statistics will help you understand which advertising works better.

What Content to Post on Social Networks?

I have compiled a small database of models who successfully run social networks. For inspiration, check the table.

X (Twitter)

Twitter is great for adult models due to the lack of censorship.

You can post any content and place direct links to OnlyFans.

Study what other models post and which tags they use.

Creating quality content and using relevant tags will increase the chances of your post getting into recommendations.

When searching by tags, make sure to enable adult content display in the settings; otherwise, the results will be limited.

Popular OnlyFans hashtags for Twitter:

  1. #onlyfans
  2. #onlyfansgirl
  3. #nsfw
  4. #twitterfans
  5. #sellingcontent

Each of these tags has thousands of posts.

Choose content similar to yours and see what other tags are used in the posts.

This way you can find many relevant tags.

Example of a post on Twitter.

How to promote OnlyFans on X (Twitter)

Reddit

Reddit is a platform for creating themed communities (subreddits).

Reddit is very popular for promotion among adult models but takes time to master.

Every day, more than 50 million people visit Reddit, 40% from the USA.

This is our target audience.

How is Reddit used?

  1. Some subreddits are created to share explicit content. Posts in subreddits can be made by any user. Many adult models post pieces of their content for free and successfully attract traffic to their OnlyFans accounts.
  2. To post in popular subreddits, you need karma, which is earned from upvotes on posts and comments. It is important to be active and create quality content.
  3. Each subreddit has its own rules. For example, some prohibit links to OnlyFans. In such cases, use the same nicknames on all platforms for easy searching.

Rules are posted on the right under the subreddit description.

Example of rules in r/boltedontits: links to adult pages can be left in comments to your posts no more than three times a month.

How to use Reddit to promote OnlyFans

Example of a Model's Account on Reddit

When you create an account on Reddit, a subreddit with your nickname is automatically created.

You can post content in your subreddit as well as in others, and all posts will appear in your account feed.

Treat your account like a business card and design it accordingly.

The creator in the example mentioned in the description that she runs a page on Fansly (it works similarly for OnlyFans).

Some popular subreddits may reject posts from such a profile due to self-promotion.

What to do then?

Example of a Model Finding Subscribers via Reddit

As we mentioned, make the same nickname on Reddit and OnlyFans.

Then it will be easy to find you through a Google search, and there is no need to mention your adult pages in the description on Reddit.

By searching the nickname of the author from the example, I quickly found all her links on Google.

Make Your Username the Same on Reddit and OnlyFans

Some subreddits allow links to adult pages in their posts.

Example of such a comment.

Example of OnlyFans Promotion on Reddit

In XbunnyXkissesx's feed, we see that she posts in different subreddits:

  1. r/naughtyinpublic
  2. r/anal_gifs
  3. r/PublicFlashing

Posts gather reactions, which means people visit to see who posted them, and some of them reach her Fansly.

Example of Reddit Posts Promoting OnlyFans

How to Start on Reddit?

The steps are as follows:

  1. Create an Account on Reddit: Step-by-step instructions.
  2. Design Your Profile: Add a photo, cover, and description.
  3. Add a few Posts: Upload great content to your subreddit. Don’t forget to mark adult content as NSFW (Not Safe For Work).
  4. Create Accounts on Imgur and Redgifs: Some subreddits allow only photo links, not files. Upload content to Imgur or Redgifs and then post the link in the subreddit. This increases the chances of viral content spread since we will gather an audience on Imgur or Redgifs as well.
  5. Choose Suitable Subreddits: Study their rules. Popular subreddits may accept posts only from accounts with positive karma. Make sure the subreddit allows posting Original Content (OC). This means you, as the author, can post content featuring yourself.
  6. Work on Karma: Post quality content without intrusive ads in subreddits without a minimum karma threshold. Leave comments, respond to them, and rate other posts.
  7. Experiment: Try different types of content, analyze feedback, and post in various places. For every 5-10 posts in subreddits, make 1-3 in your account to attract subscribers.

Before posting in popular subreddits, you may be asked to go through verification.

For verification, you need to post a picture of yourself with a handwritten text in your feed.

Usually, you are asked to write your nickname and the subreddit address where you plan to post.

This confirms that you are a real person and the content author.

Example of a verification post.

Verification on Reddit for OnlyFans Models

Where to Find Subreddits for Promoting OnlyFans?

Use the NSFW subreddit tree to find the most relevant communities for your content.

There are many categories and subcategories, allowing you to find small subreddits with a loyal audience.

How to Find Subreddits for Promoting OnlyFans

You can also use the popular subreddit catalog on The Porn Dude.

Directory of Popular NSFW Subreddits for Promoting OnlyFans
I have compiled subreddits that I used in my work; you can find relevant ones for yourself in the table.

How to Get Karma on Reddit?

By making quality posts, you will organically gather positive reactions from the audience, and your karma will grow.

There are services that optimize this process, such as Upvote Shop.

For a small fee, you can boost reactions on your posts, increasing the chances of getting into recommendations.

How to Schedule a Post on Reddit?

When you want to automate working with Reddit, you can use the scheduling service Postpone.

It allows you to upload many posts to specific subreddits for the future at once.

Usually, Upvote Shop and Postpone are used together.

You can schedule updates on Reddit for several weeks ahead in Postpone, and through Upvote Shop, add reactions to each of your new posts, highlighting you among other authors.

TikTok

TikTok has strict rules regarding erotic content, and you need to do something lighter.

Usually, in TikTok, they leave a link to Instagram, and on Instagram, a link to Linktr.ee.

At different times, there have been schemes to make it easier to get into recommendations in the USA.

They used VPN and American e-sim for registration.

As practice shows, you can find your audience without technical manipulations.

The main thing is to create quality content.

Look for ideas from other models, subscribe, like, and your recommendations feed will adapt to relevant content.

How to Promote OnlyFans via TikTok

Instagram

For successful OnlyFans promotion through Instagram, it is important to find a balance between attracting subscribers and following platform rules.

Currently, posting short videos through Reels works best.

How to promote OnlyFans via Instagram

Later

To optimize work with social networks, you can use Later.

Later allows you to plan and post from one account to several social networks simultaneously.

If we post quality content, the recommendation systems in social networks can help our content reach our potential audience. This is a great source of free traffic.

If you currently have no social media followers, that’s fine.

Creating new social media accounts is common practice.

You don’t need millions of followers on TikTok or Instagram to start.

How to Promote OnlyFans Without Social Networks?

If you don’t want to create social networks, there are two other options:

  1. Adult sites.
  2. Paid advertising.

How to Find Subscribers Through Adult Sites?

We can create accounts on adult sites with large audiences, post engaging content there, and advertise our OnlyFans page.

There is no censorship, so the content can be any level of explicitness, and you can leave a direct link to OnlyFans.

The most popular sites:

  1. Redgifs
  2. xFree
  3. Fapello
  4. Chaturbate
  5. Pornhub

Many models develop their accounts on these platforms and get a great source of traffic.

Let's consider examples of model profiles for the most popular sites.

Redgifs

We can post short videos.

Redgifs is often used in conjunction with Reddit.

First, we upload our video to Redgifs, then embed it in a post on Reddit.

How to Promote OnlyFans via Redgifs

xFree

Redgifs, xFree, and Fapello are very similar technically; promotion through them will be the same.

Chaturbate

Chaturbate  is a webcam site popular among OnlyFans models.

You can use it not only as a traffic source for your paid adult page but also as a way to earn extra money.

Through Chaturbate, you can do live broadcasts and collect money from viewers.

More about what webcam is.

Pornhub

Pornhub is the most popular adult site.

Posting teasers and ads for your paid account there, you can find a loyal audience.

Pornhub also has its own monetization system with pay-per-view.

How to Find Subscribers Through Paid Advertising?

You can advertise your page through model directories or directly on another model's profile for money.

I recommend using paid tools after trying social networks and adult platforms. If done correctly, you can get subscribers for free.

Chat where you can order ads or mutual promotion: Promo OnlyFans.

How Do Popular Authors Advertise Their OnlyFans Accounts?

Let's analyze a real example of how popular authors promote their accounts.

The author has two OnlyFans accounts – one free and the other paid.

Example of Promoting an OnlyFans Account

The accounts contain different content:

  1. Free account with "light" content. The main goal of the free OnlyFans account is to gather an audience, which can then be sold additional PPV content or transferred to the paid account. The free account serves as a magnet for subscribers.
  2. Paid account with "hot" content. The subscription includes many explicit photos, but the author often creates additional PPV content.
Example of Free and Paid Posts on OnlyFans

How does the author get subscribers?

She uses all available platforms to promote her OnlyFans – Instagram, TikTok, Reddit.

Promoting OnlyFans via Instagram

In all her social accounts, she essentially creates the same content as for OnlyFans, but less explicit.

She gathers likes and followers, and most importantly – leaves a link to the site everywhere.

On the site, you can find the link to OnlyFans, both paid and free.

Example of a Linktree Site for Promoting OnlyFans

That's all!

Promotion takes time and effort, but it’s not a complicated process.

You need to experiment and find where your audience resides.

Promotion Checklist:
  • Accounts: Register accounts on adult platforms and popular social networks.
  • Reddit: Find 5 subreddits in your niche.
  • Intermediary Site: Use Linktree to create a landing page that combines links to all your profiles.
How OnlyFans payment works

How to Get Paid?

You can withdraw your money after earning more than $20.

You can set how often to receive payments – weekly, monthly, or on request.

To withdraw funds, you will need to choose a payment system.

The list of payment systems depends on the country of registration:

  1. Paxum.
  2. Cosmo Payment.
  3. VISA Direct Transfer.
  4. Skrill (my review article).

All systems work similarly:

  1. You create an account in the chosen payment system, verify it, and connect it to OnlyFans.
  2. Money is automatically transferred from OnlyFans to the payment system. On the statement, you will see that you receive money from Fenix Inc, not from OnlyFans.
  3. Upon your request, money from the payment system is transferred to your bank account. Usually, the sender's name corresponds to the payment system.

Therefore, no one will see that you received money from OnlyFans.

I withdraw from OnlyFans to Skrill and then to Monobank.

Skrill is a safe and fast payment system, one of the most popular, along with PayPal and Payoneer.

Two other popular options are VISA Direct Transfer and Paxum.

How to Withdraw Money via VISA Direct Transfer?

VISA Direct Transfer allows you to link any Visa bank card to OnlyFans by simply providing its number.

I transferred up to $3K per month this way, using my Monobank card, with no issues or questions.

For larger amounts, it makes sense to use an intermediary in the form of a payment system.

Withdrawing Money from OnlyFans via VISA Direct Transfer

How to Withdraw Money via Paxum?

Paxum is used for higher turnovers.

You will need to create and verify an account.

For verification, you need to confirm your residence.

After the money is deposited in Paxum, you can withdraw it to a card in dollars or in cryptocurrency.

Withdrawing Money from OnlyFans via Paxum
Alternatives to OnlyFans

What are the Alternatives to OnlyFans?

The niche of services for earning on adult content is actively developing.

The main sites now are:

  1. OnlyFans.
  2. Fansly.
  3. Ton.place.
  4. Fanvue.

The main advantage of OnlyFans is a well-known brand and a large audience.

According to Similarweb, OnlyFans surpasses other services in traffic by many times.

OnlyFans vs Fansly vs Ton.Place vs Fanvue

As we mentioned earlier, having a large audience on the site does not guarantee success, as you will have to attract people to your page yourself.

However, it makes sense to work on the most popular site.

Alternatives to OnlyFans are usually chosen in cases where it is impossible to register or verify an account on OnlyFans.

Fansly vs OnlyFans

What makes Fansly better:

  1. You can create multiple subscription packages at the same time.
  2. There is a direct withdrawal to cryptocurrencies.
