How to Make Money on Onlyfans
As most people continually look for more social connections, Onlyfans has exponentially grown. As a content creator, the platform allows me to monetize my influence by locking a paywall’s content where my audience pays a fee to access it. It’s less restrictive, and you can upload anything from videos, photos, or creative writing at a price. I have put together a detailed guide on how to make money on Onlyfans to get you started.
What You Will Need To Follow This Tutorial
While using the platform, your main aim is to attract and retain many followers and subscribers to ensure a stable income from your content. To achieve this, you need to develop strategies to enhance your connection with fans by improving your content. For this, you will need;
- Enough likes
- A significant number of fans
When creating an account, bear in mind a proper name, your content’s nature, how often you will post, and your subscription price. Note that you can create both free and a paid account. For the free option, you only share exclusive content to promote your premium page. You should, however, share your premium content on price locked posts. I would recommend that you invest more in the premium account, which guarantees substantial returns.
Step by step instructions on how to make Money Through Onlyfans
If you have reached a point where you have a great fan base, you can invite them to experience some exclusive content on your Onlyfans platform. However, you need first to create an account using the following easy steps.
Create your Onlyfans Account
Creating an account on Onlyfans is straight forward since you don’t need to sign any contract, and there are no fees accrued.
Therefore, head to the Onlyfans site at the bottom and tap on ‘sign up for Onlyfans.’ Input your credentials using your Twitter account, email address, password, and add your preferred display name on the field marked as ‘name.’
Lastly, you need to agree to the terms and conditions of the Onlyfans site by hitting on the small box.
After creating the account, the platform will allow you to edit and customize your profile. Therefore, design a display and user name; the latter appears on the URL while the former gets above your profile.
Remember to add a profile and cover photo to bring out the content you intend to post. In your bio section, inform fans about what they will access after subscribing and ensure that you are descriptive. Further, you can let them know how often you post new content. Once you do all the necessary editing, save changes.
Add a bank Account
To earn money, you need to create a bank account by first submitting your personal information. The Onlyfans team reviews your details then makes an approval.
On the site, go to the subscription price section and hit on ‘add a bank account.’ Alternatively, tap on the profile icon on the right corner to open a menu as ‘add bank (to earn).
Get to the next page to add your nationality and click on the age verification area, then tap on ‘next.’ Proceed to add your personal information such as your name, address, city, zip code, and more. It also gives you a provision to add your social media names but its optional.
Additionally, you need to upload your government issued ID photo from documents such as;
- ID card
- Driving license
You are also required to add your ID’s expiration date or click ‘No expiration date’ depending on your document. After making all the necessary uploads, the ‘send for approval’ button will be blue. Click on it to submit your credentials.
Onlyfans will send you a confirmation email within 48 hours to allow you to add your bank account details. Keep in mind that direct transfer via your visa card is the default paying channel. However, you can still use other options under ‘other payout options.’
Set your Subscription rate
After approval, you can now set your subscription price. On the ‘Edit Profile’ section, you can set the necessary subscription pricing limits. Usually, it’s automatically set as ‘free,’ but you can set on different ranges depending on how your account performs with time.
In most cases, the lower your fee, the higher the subscribers you can attract. However, you can increase the charges as you add more content that is time-consuming and lengthy. You can start at $9.99 then adjust gradually.
Now that you know how to create an Onlyfans account, it’s time to start making money. You will earn using the following ways.
Remember that your fans pay to access your posts, and you may want to ensure that you avail of high quality and engaging content throughout. To add posts on your Onlyfans page, proceed to the home page and click ‘new post.’ You can upload your videos, audio, photos, or any other content and you will earn based on your monthly subscription price.
Ask for tips
The platform avails a dollar icon beneath your posts where you can request your subscribers to tip you if they enjoy your high-quality content. Besides, you can sell your digital content in exchange for tips. Create a tip menu outlining various content types or items and the required amount of tip. It works for things like photos, videos, physical products, recipes, meals, and workout plans in PDF format.
While dealing with physical products, it works best for smaller and inexpensive items, and you may need your fan’s phone numbers for delivery purposes. To pin the tip menu on your account, post it, proceed to settings, then, ‘pin to your profile page.’
Earn from pay per view Messages
You can also share your content with your fans through messages, and they pay to view it. The platform allows you to send up to 20 photosets, or audios, charging a minimum of $3. You can also send a video to a specific fan upon request and set up to $50.
To send a price locked message, go to the messaging icon, click ‘new message,’ ‘all subscribers’, then ‘next.’ Attach the appropriate media, write your message, click the price tag icon to set your price, and send to all your subscribers. They can see a preview of what the content entails and the amount of money required to unlock.
Through mass Messages
Rather than posting content on your feeds accessible by even your future subscribers, you can send it directly to your current ones. Since it won’t appear on your feeds, it’s a great strategy to attract more subscriptions from users who enjoy your content. You can post on your other platforms to inform your fans that your online subscribers will receive exclusive content on specific content to lure in more subscribers.
It’s also a great way to ensure that your loyal fans won’t miss out on any critical content even if they fail to check their account for some time. Besides, private messaging is a great way to interact with your fans by giving them personalized information that they can’t access from anywhere else. It will keep them interested in your content.
The above guide shines a light on how to make money on the Onlyfans platform. It outlines the importance of showcasing quality content to your audience to give you some extra earnings.
