In the past, when adult performers had to contact agents, producers, and directors before starting, technology has changed how we do many things, with them taking profits. One of the platforms that exploded in popularity among sex workers and adult models is OnlyFans, a subscription-based adult content creation marketplace.
With OnlyFans comes the biggest perk, freedom for creators to choose what they post and when; the platform is often touted as a get-rich-quick scheme. However, this isn’t true! Becoming an OnlyFans model takes a lot of planning and work if you want to grow your OnlyFans page and start making money.
The platform has been built as the perfect way for content creators to build a stronger relationship with followers and monetize their unique content.

OnlyFans is also used by mainstream celebrities who use the platform as a place to connect with their fans and provide exclusive content. These celebrities and porn models who have a massive following on social media have taken their fans to OnlyFans to offer explicit content that is otherwise banned by social platforms like Facebook and Instagram.

Use social media for marketing yourself
Leveraging social media to grow your OnlyFans page can’t be stressed enough. If you want to grow your fan base and promote your account, Social media is where you need to put all your work. Use platforms like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and even Reddit to grow your subscriber base.
If you are into selling adult content, you can use Reddit or Twitter to promote your explicit content, as both platforms support it. Leverage the stories feature of Instagram to promote your content without looking like you are trying to spam your followers.
Consistency is key
This might not sound like a hack, but it is really important if being successful is your goal. Whether you create content daily or weekly, consistency is a must. The more regular and consistent you are, the greater your chances of getting more followers. Being consistent doesn’t mean you need to create content daily.
Set a schedule where you can post a few times in a week. It’s your time, your efforts; you must manage it the way you want. Just let your fans know when they can expect new content from you.
Request for tips often
If not often, ask for tips regularly. Yes, you heard me right. If you want to become an OnlyFans model and make money, follow this religiously. When you post a picture or a video, ask for tips. You can request for tips when doing live streams as well. There are a lot of creators who make a great amount of money from tips alone.
Another pro tip would be to pin your “tip menu” on your OnlyFans profile. For instance, if a fan tips a specific amount of money listed on the menu, they will receive that item. It can be physical or digital.
Create content for likes
If one thing you want from becoming the OnlyFans model, it would be the exposure and likes you get. You can like your own content if you want, but it doesn’t count anyway. Likes you receive on your posts are more of social proof. With greater social proof comes the chance of being more successful on the platform.
If you want to become an OnlyFans model, it’s important to be consistent, patient, work hard, and be ready to promote your OnlyFans account as much as possible. Be sure to create high-quality content regularly so that you can attract new followers and subscribers.
As for the monetary side of success, make sure you set your subscription to a rate that justifies the value of your content. And don’t forget, you ask for tips and sell additional products to maximize your revenue.
