How many times to post a day?
OnlyFans is a social network in which people seek connection with the Content Creators they have subscribed to. That is why it is very important that you are continually giving them new material and that they do not stop seeing you all the time. Your fans want to hear from you at all hours, and they not only want you to upload photos, they also want you to upload stories, videos, even texts telling them how was your day or polls.
If you want to start gaining OnlyFans subscribers, you have to create a special connection with them and give them a lot of content.
Nobody subscribes to an empty profile.
That’s why you have to be constantly posting photos, both new and old. We recommend that during the first days when you create your OnlyFans account, you upload content between 7 and 10 times a day. With this you will be able to quickly fill your profile and it will not seem like an empty account.
After a couple of weeks, ideally you should continue posting 2–3 times a day at least:
OnlyFans accounts that publish the most are the ones that grow the faster
Obvious, right? To give you an idea, we are talking about the fact that in the same period of time they can grow 6 times faster compared to accounts that do not publish every day or publish once a day.
Do you want to gain subscribers on OnlyFans? Well, publish every day, several times, and quality content. Interact with your followers and you will see how you are gaining fans step by step. You can even hire a OnlyFans assistant to get professional help setting up your account and managing it from the start.
Free or paid content?
At first it is very difficult to know which is the best strategy. Should you make a free account and offer paid content? Make a paid account and then show your content free? Create a paid account where some of the content has a price?
There is no exact formula to know which is the ideal combination, it will depend a lot on your clients. But we can tell you what works best:
It is difficult for anyone to subscribe to your account if they have not seen you previously, or if they do not know what they will find on your profile. Therefore, it is recommended that you have a good description and that they can also see some of your photos on other social media such as Reddit, Twitter or Instagram.
The best way to earn money is to have a low subscription price, offer plenty of free content, and also have more special, quality and longer-lasting content that you can sell within the platform.
In OnlyFans you will earn much more money from PPV content than what you will earn with subscriptions
That is why it’s important that you are attentive with your subscribers, and that you have a lot of paid content (PPV or Pay-per-View) that you can sell directly.
For example, sets of 5–10 photos usually sell for between $1 and $3, short videos (1 or 2 minutes) for just under $5, and long videos or specific content that you have prepared because someone has asked you, it can be charged between $15–40.
You should also prepare video packs with a reduced price compared to the price that these videos would have separately. They sell wonderfully, if you haven’t tried it yet, don’t wait any longer to do it.
If you have doubts about how much you should sell the content for, you can try to get your closest fans to help you. Think that you are generating a relationship of trust with them and that they will help you happily.
When am I going to start making money?
Earning money on OnlyFans is simple, but not easy. What does this mean? It means that making money on OnlyFans has no mystery. You start producing content, subscribers start to reach you, those subscribers talk to their friends and bring in more people … and that’s how little by little you gain exposure.
But that doesn’t mean it’s immediate! It is very likely that during the first weeks you will not earn a single dollar. But don’t be discouraged. Like any other business, the beginnings are complicated. During the first days you are learning to use OnlyFans, thinking about what content to do, learning how to take the best photos and videos, and all that takes a lot of work.
When you get more experience and do all those activities with less effort, you will see how you start to earn money very easily. Therefore do not despair. It will take a few weeks to start making money on OnlyFans, but once you start, you will earn more and more by dedicating the same effort.
It is very important that you take it as a job if you want to make a lot of money. Spend your time every day, prepare content, talk to your subscribers, and promote yourself continuously to gain exposure and that new people find you and can subscribe to your profile.
Remember: this is a marathon, not a sprint.
Promote your OnlyFans profile
This is the key to making money with OnlyFans. There are more than 1.5 million Content Creators, and many people are dedicated solely and exclusively to growing their account. If you want people to subscribe to your profile, you have to make it easy for them to find you.
And without a doubt this is the most complicated of all. Where do you go when you want to promote yourself? You can promote your OnlyFans account on Twitter or Telegram in groups enabled for it. But the problem is that dozens of profiles are being advertised on these sites every day, and therefore your profile will be hidden between all those promos. The return on this type of investment is practically zero.
Think about your potential client: If you are subscribed to any of these groups, you can easily receive 100–200 messages per day. Do you think he might see your ad or is he so bombarded with them that he won’t even see it?
But don’t worry because there are many other options. If you go to the places that your clients use, you can advertise there and it will be much more profitably. Why? Because if you advertise in the places that OnlyFans users use, you already know that they will see your ad and that the possibility of them entering your profile is much higher than in specific promotion groups that spam thousands of profiles.
Another option widely used by Content Creators is SFS or Shotout for shotout (also called… Spam for Spam). What does it consist of? Basically you reach an agreement with another Content Creator in which you will put on your OnlyFans feed or your social media a link to her profile, and she will put a link to yours.
It’s a relatively good option, but it has a slight problem. It’s an option that is very crowded, like the Twitter and Telegram groups. Throughout the day you see so many impacts on social media and OnlyFans, that you omit them as if they did not exist.
Another highly recommended option is that you have a link so that users can see your profile for free for a couple of days, and thus get an idea of what they will find if they follow you.
It’s a great opportunity for you to capture them with messages and quality content, so do not hesitate. Will people go in just to watch and then not subscribe? Undoubtedly. But if you do a good job sending them messages, you will surely be able to attract fans little by little. You don’t lose anything by trying!
With all of the above, you should be able to set up your OnlyFans account to start earning money. Don’t worry, it is a path that is slow and hard at first but soon becomes a substantial source of income. Keep working and you will see how you get results.
The last tips we can give you to start your OnlyFans account:
Take it easy
It will take a while to get used to OnlyFans platform, preparing content, talking to your fans … you don’t have to be with OF all the time, you can plan a few hours of rest and a few working hours. It can be very demanding at first, so don’t be in a rush.
Significant dates play a role
You may suddenly have some very good days and then a few very bad weeks. It’s not your fault! Until you have hundreds of subscribers, you will depend a lot on your few fans, and they all have their lives and there will be times that they are more attentive, and others that are less so. So do not be discouraged, the more subscribers you have, the more constant your income will be.
Do only what you want to do
No one can force you to do anything, you own the content you generate and no one can demand that you do something that you are not willing to do. So if someone bothers you, you can block them and forget about the problem. You do not have to give your personal number either, and if you are willing to make calls online, open a Skype account for this purpose and do not use a personal one.
Be aware that your friends and family will end up knowing that you have an account
It is practically inevitable that sooner or later, someone you know will find your profile. If you are not happy with this happening, ask yourself if you really want to open an account at OnlyFans. Or at least avoid showing your face or characteristic features to avoid being seen by those closest to you.
Hire a OnlyFans assistant or agency
This way you will learn much faster and also will free you from the most tedious tasks, as managing your social media or editing content. If you want to learn more about this option, check our our guide on how to hire a OnlyFans assistant.
