If you are looking for the best ways to promote your OnlyFans, this handy guide is for you. While OnlyFans continues to grow in popularity, many users are using it as a way to make some money on the platform. In order to make more of it, you need loyal followers who can be converted into subscribers.
Where else can you create premium content and sell it at a price that you think is good enough for your followers? Plus, if you need to grow your following and make more money, you’ll need to promote your OnlyFans. We’ll be taking a look at four of the best ways to do that.
We live in an age where digital marketing has taken its rightful place on the throne as the top dog when it comes to promoting things. Even Facebook ads have been more favorable compared to standard advertising tactics.
If you are serious about starting an OnlyFans or already have one but want to grow it, read on so you have a few good ideas on how you can promote it for more followers (and eventually paid subscribers).
Where to promote OnlyFans
1. Use social media
Almost everyone is using social media. With so many platforms, it may seem overwhelming to choose which ones you’ll want to use to promote your OnlyFans. The platforms that we’ll be focusing on are Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
Before you go any further with social media, it’s important to know some of the guidelines and boundaries of each platform before you post about your OnlyFans. Since OnlyFans does allow adult content on its platform, it doesn’t mean that it’s acceptable on others (unless stated otherwise).
What can you post when it’s OnlyFans vs. Instagram? Is it acceptable to post nude content on Reddit of all places? Let’s take a look at the three social media channels and give you a good idea of what kind of content is appropriate and what is considered off-limits:
Facebook and Instagram
While it is OK to promote your OnlyFans on both of these platforms, you need to be really careful about what to post (especially if you are using photos or videos). Facebook and Instagram will not allow any posts that contain nudity or sexual content.
If your OnlyFans does sell or broadcast adult content, then subtlety is key. The caption for your post shouldn’t be too overly sexualized. This can be tricky, but a simple “check out my OnlyFans” or the like is a good start (followed by an attention-grabbing image).
On Instagram, you can post a link to your OnlyFans to your bio. In an Instagram post or story, you can let people know about it and direct them to your link or get them to “swipe up” if you are using Stories.
Out of the major social media platforms that allow adult content, Twitter is the best option here. The good news is that Twitter has a feature that will filter out or block adult content (unless the user changes their settings). Unlike Instagram or Facebook, you are allowed to post content that contains nudity without any repercussions.
If you have the ability to post something about your OnlyFans in 140 characters or less, Twitter just might be the platform for you. Plus, it’s been the staple of many adult performers who use OnlyFans as of late.
Reddit is another social media platform that allows NSFW content. Like Twitter, you can be able to set it to make such content visible. Also, you’ll be able to make an indicator that your content may be sensitive for viewers because it contains such content (the same as Twitter).
There are plenty of subreddits that allow adult content. If you post there regularly, you may get followers that can become paid subscribers at any given point.
YouTube has a video platform. So does OnlyFans. In the case of Onlyfans vs. YouTube, who wins? In the case of adult content, OnlyFans obliterates YouTube in that regard since the latter has restrictions. But you don’t have to have adult content on your OnlyFans to be successful.
You can have a solid YouTube following and leverage your OnlyFans so your subscribers can get extras they won’t find on your channel or anywhere else on social media. It can be extra videos, PDFs, digital products, and so much more.
Of course, you can add your OnlyFans link to your profile or video description. You can also remind them to check out your OnlyFans and subscribe as a call to action towards the end of almost any video. You know how people on YouTube say “if you like this video, click subscribe” and such?
YouTube is more of a long game approach. The longer your video is up there, the more people over time will see it. That can lead to some residual growth over time since people find you because of one video or another.
Snapchat has grown in popularity over the years. And there are those who have to sell premium Snapchats to followers. If you offer premium Snapchats, you already have a number of followers who might be primed for subscribing to your OnlyFans page.
At any given point, you can be able to drop the link to your OnlyFans page so your premium Snapchat subscribers can be able to “swipe up” and be able to follow and subscribe to you. Also, you can be able to post adult content on Snapchat without any kind of consequences.
2. Use PornHub Community*
*Note: Only if you produce adult content
If you are someone who consistently creates adult content regularly, you can use the PornHub community in order to promote your OnlyFans so your followers and subscribers get additional content.
Since PornHub is one of the most popular YouTube-style platforms that allows you to view adult content (albeit videos), this is a perfect place to upload samples of your videos.
The PornHub community has members that will post adult content that they share with other members using a “public post” setting. Of course, you gain followers through the PornHub community. So why not leverage them into paid subscribers on OnlyFans?
Before you ask: will OnlyFans ruin your career if you produce adult content? Here’s something you need to know if you are worried about that. You can be completely anonymous.
In fact, there are those on OnlyFans who maintain an anonymous identity by never showing their face. Alternatively, you can be known by a stage name or a pseudonym. In short, you don’t have to use your real name if you don’t want to.
If anything, a lot of people won’t care what you do in your private life. Some will say that anyone with an OnlyFans is not reflecting “corporate values” or crap like that. If you are worried about someone “outing” you for having an OnlyFans, take the necessary precautions to make yourself as low profile and anonymous as possible.
If you do product adult content, PornHub might be what you’ll limit yourself to in terms of promotion. Also, you can consider other social media platforms listed above that allows adult content (like Twitter or Reddit). Those are two platforms that can allow you to promote your OnlyFans under a stage name or when you want to fly under the radar and be anonymous.
This means you’ll need to avoid Facebook and Instagram since there’s a good chance your friends or family could be following you on there. Not to mention, you could have a snoopy co-worker or employer that could be checking out your Facebook or Instagram and not know it. Yes, there are people like that out there.
The PornHub community is one of the best ways to promote your OnlyFans without social media. Especially when a majority of your content is mostly NSFW. Not that you need to, but OnlyFans profiles with adult content seem to be growing quite fast compared to others.
3. Use Linktree
Today, you can put together all of your social media and OnlyFans links all in one place. Linktree is popular among influencers on YouTube and Instagram. And most of them will have their personalized LinkTree attached to their social media profiles.
From there, your followers and subscribers who may be from one platform can also follow you on another. It’s also the perfect place to include your OnlyFans in there. Will you get more subscribers that way?
The short answer is yes. Linktree will keep your social media and other related links organized all in one place. That way, your most loyal fans will follow you on almost any channel you have.
4. Adult cam sites*
*Note: If you create adult content
Once again, this is one way to promote your OnlyFans if you create adult content. If you are consistently broadcasting shows on cam sites like Chaturbate, then you can use that to promote your OnlyFans. There are plenty of Chaturbate users that are always viewing live broadcasts, which is the perfect platform to leverage the extra content that you may have.
Sure, you can sell your past content on these cam sites. But what would be the difference between how much you earn there and what you earn on OnlyFans? Keep in mind, if you sell content on OnlyFans, you keep 80 percent of the total money you make.
