The future is now and plenty of young adults are abandoning the old ways of conventional income. Many have chosen to sign up for OnlyFans instead of working a nine to five job five days a week. If you’re here, then that could already be you, or you’re looking to jump on the wagon of making money off of building your community.
It sounds like a dream come to, but it’s not always easy to make money on OnlyFans right off the bat. There’s a simple fix to this and that’s to make a free OnlyFans. I know that sounds confusing. If you’re trying to make money on OnlyFans, shouldn’t you charge a monthly subscription fee?
Well, hear me out. Although you wouldn’t be making money on the initial subscription for your fans to follow you, there’s plenty of other ways to make money on OnlyFans. Having the free OnlyFans page makes users on the site more likely to view your page if it’s free, giving you a bigger following faster.
That fixes the issue of getting followers, but how do you get more money if it’s free? There are a ton of ways and in fact, they will most likely make more money in the long run if you choose to go this route over simply using a single subscription paywall.
Pay Per View Messages
OnlyFans has a Pay Per View (PPV) feature. This means you can upload a post or pictures and make it cost money to see it. When your followers find it on your timeline they won’t be able to see it unless they pay the monetary value you set.
If you post normal photos or “teasers” on your account and then have all of your real content locked behind the PPV wall, you’ll be able to draw in your initial crowd to see what you have to offer, and then some of them will be willing to pay money to view your posts. This works great for both established and newcomers to OnlyFans, as you can make a little extra money having your community pay to view your posts.
Keeping your page free to follow will make people more willing to pay for some messages too. Since they aren’t paying you a monthly subscription like many other accounts make them do, your fans wouldn’t mind seeing pay per view messages on your page.
If you make enough free and PPV posts, you’ll find you can make far more money than just using the subscription feature for fans to follow your OnlyFans account.
Use A Second Account
This is a game-changer.
If you already have an established account on OnlyFans with a decent number of followers that have followed you through a paid subscription, you could make a second account allowing people to follow for free.
This account would not have the same content of course, because that wouldn’t be fair to your paying fans (or you), but instead, you could use it to market yourself and bring more followers to your paid page. If you follow these steps, you can draw in more followers to your other page in no time.
Step 1: Post previews on your free account to promote your paid account
People want to know who they’re going to follow if they have to put money down. Share a little bit of what they can get if they join your paid account and many people will likely follow you if they like your content.
Step 2: Interact with your fans on your free account
While not nearly as much as your paid account, interact with your followers on the free account. You can coax them into joining your paid account where you can interact with them even more. The people joining your free account already are interested in you, so use that to try and draw them in further through fan interaction such as:
- Responding to DM’s
- Regular Promotional Posts
- Promotional Streams
Even if some of your followers decide not to join your paid account, they still may send you tips or be willing to buy a pay per view message on your free account every once and a while so you could have two sources of revenue through both accounts even though the one is free to subscribe to.
Having a free account on top of your paid account will generate more followers and possibly more revenue, making it a great option for already established people on OnlyFans who are trying to expand their profile and revenue.
OnlyFans has the wonderful feature of tipping. You can get tips from your fans on your posts, profile, private messages, or while you’re streaming. This can be a great way for your fans to show they appreciate the effort and an incentive for you to give your fans your best efforts.
Interacting with the community can help entice your fans to send tips. Having more followers by proxy also would increase the chances of getting tips, so having a free account would benefit greatly to get more followers and money.
If you have a free account and interact with your community through live streams or talking to fans one on one, you’ll find that many of them would be more than happy to tip you for your time. If you don’t restrict your fans with a subscription either, they may even be more willing to tip you since they don’t have to pay you a set amount monthly.
This can actually result in you making more money than if you set a subscription fee for people to join your OnlyFans account.
Tips From Posts
Making several posts a day will generate a lot of content for people to see on your page. If you work very hard on each post and put a lot of effort that shows, it will make your fans want to reward you for your efforts. So making high-quality posts can increase your potential to gain tips on them.
Tips From Live Streams
Live streams are a great way to get tips from your followers. If you live stream regularly and interact with your fans while keeping the stream interesting to watch, you’ll bring in the tips in no time. People will be more than happy to tip you, especially if you are connecting with each and every viewer personally.
If your followers feel appreciated, especially through live streams, they will be more than happy to give you tips to help you continue making the content they love. On top of this, if you do something for tips, such as thank the person personally on stream, or perform an action that everyone wants to see when someone gives you a tip, that makes it fun for your fans to tip and they will be so happy to spend money on you.
Tips From Direct Messages
Tips from direct messages help a lot too. You should always respond to your fans through DMs. It makes them feel valued which is clearly how you want them to feel. When they feel like you actually genuinely care about what they have to say and enjoy talking to them, they will tip you for your efforts!
Gaining followers is one thing, but your job is to form a community of people who enjoy your presence. Each and every follower is a person with emotions and personality. Treating them as such will keep people coming back for more and bring even more followers.
Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of content should I post on OnlyFans to get more followers?
There is no single right answer on the best kind of content to post on OnlyFans if you want to build your followers, but you need to focus on a niche and work out what that audience is looking for. Trying to post content that appeals to everyone is harder because you’re competing with everyone else, so instead try to drill down to a particular niche interest and focus on posting content that matches that. You can then start targeting your promotion to that audience and build your followers with less competition.
How frequently should I update my OnlyFans account to keep followers engaged?
It’s important to update your OnlyFans page regularly if you want to make sure your followers stay engaged. The frequency will vary depending on your niche and your subscription price – the more you charge, the more you’ll need to post to justify people continuing to pay. At the same time, you don’t want to oversaturate your profile with content and cause people to get bored.
Aim to post at least 3 times a week, and probably no more than once per day. If you are posting regularly and find that your interactions have dropped, considering slowing down your posting schedule a little and testing the impact that this has.
How can I promote my OnlyFans to attract more followers?
The best way to promote your OnlyFans in order to build up your following is to become really active on social media, making sure you follow the guidelines for each respective platform to avoid getting banned.
The best platform is Reddit, since it is open to adult content and there are various subreddits to suit different niche audiences, allowing you to pitch yourself to people who are actively interested in the kind of content you produce. Reddit also has dedicated subreddits for OnlyFans creators where you can engage with people who are already on the lookout for new creators to follow.
What’s the best way to interact with followers on OnlyFans?
The best way to interact with your followers on OnlyFans is just to treat them as humans – don’t constantly advertise to them, but instead talk to them on a human level, engage with them, ask questions about their day or their lives (without getting too personal) and building up a relationship, without leading them on to think they are a friend or even more.
By building these relationships on a professional level, you’re able to gain more trust and give the follower the attention they are craving, which will help to keep them subscribed for a long time, and encourage them to tip you more regularly.
How can I offer special incentives to my followers to encourage them to subscribe to my OnlyFans?
There are various ways that you can encourage your followers to subscribe to your OnlyFans, including the option of running discounts and promotions to give followers cheap subscription months as a way of trying you out.
Obviously if you do run a promotion, make sure it’s not so cheap that you annoy those people paying full price. And also, if you’re offering a discounted month, be sure to be on top of your game for that month with the content you are posting, so that the new subscribers feel more willing to keep their subscription running.
Can I collaborate with other OnlyFans creators?
You absolutely can collaborate with other OnlyFans creators, and it’s one of the best ways to promote your page if you’ve exhausted your ideas with regular social media channels. Cross-promotion helps you to share followers with another creator, and could potentially lead to crossover content if you’re willing.
You can also pay to cross-promote with more successful creators, giving them a fee in exchange for being promoted to their larger audience. There are various options available, including agreements where you only pay for the followers you gain.
How do I use hashtags to make myself more visible on OnlyFans?
Hashtags are used on OnlyFans as a way of grouping content. If you use hashtags in your posts, then anyone searching OnlyFans for that hashtag could potentially stumble onto your profile. If they like what they see, they may stick around and subscribe.
Only use hashtags that are relevant to your content. Don’t try to overload your profile with hashtags that don’t actually reflect the content you’re producing, because you’ll annoy those people already subscribing and you’ll look more like a bot – an automated account. This could encourage people to end their subscription.
What are the most common mistakes people make on OnlyFans?
There are a lot of common mistakes that people make when setting up an OnlyFans account, but the main three are not engaging with fans properly, not posting enough, and not using social media to the full extent to promote their content.
Fans are not just paying for the right to see your photos and videos – they are also looking to engage with you, through private messages and comments. Ignoring them, or being slow to reply to them, is only going to put them off.
At the same time, they are paying to see your content, so they want to see new posts. Make sure you are posting regularly enough to keep people interested.
And don’t rely on OnlyFans to build your follower base for you. The only way to gain more subscribers and earn more money is to put the hard work in yourself and promote your page across your social channels.
How can I use OnlyFans analytics and data to get more followers?
OnlyFans does offer some statistics and data about your content that creators can use to better maximize their earnings. The best thing you can do is track where your followers are based, the time of day that your content is most viewed, and what content has performed the best.
You can then try to tailor your content to your audience, promoting it on social media at a time when you know your fans are active online, and you can spend more time making the content that you know works better, including getting more views and more engagement.
OnlyFans is a great way for people to leave behind their old conventional jobs to pursue their dreams and sharing them with the rest of the world. If you are planning to make an OnlyFans, or you already have one and need help expanding your fanbase and revenue, try using a free page.

While it may seem like the opposite of what you want if you’re trying to make money off of your account, with time and effort you can expand it to make you money even with the free subscribe button. You just need to stay involved in your community.
Make plenty of posts with a pay per view message sprinkled in here and there. Go on live stream all the time so you can draw your fans to your page all at once and interact with them in real-time. They’ll enjoy it greatly and love it just as much as seeing your posts.
If your live streams are very interesting, you’ll be sure to draw in more followers, and with that more tips that will increase your revenue.
Sending replies to every person who sends you a message will make them feel like you care about them and value them as your fan. This will keep them as your fan and will even draw in more people, for they’ll love your positive energy and love for your fans.
That will cause people to want to tip you simply for messaging them back and letting them know how much you appreciate them.
All of this will help you expand your page and help you increase your followers and revenue on OnlyFans. Using a free account can be exactly what you need to take your OnlyFans career to the next level.
