So, you’ve just started an OnlyFans account and you would like more fans to subscribe to your page. Alternatively, you might be a seasoned creator looking to take your profile to the next level. Wherever you are on your content creation journey, we’ve put together five ways to promote your OnlyFans account, gain fans and get your page where you want it to be.
Cross-promoting your OnlyFans account across your other social media channels is a really easy and simple way to bring attention (and more viewers) to your page. If you’ve built up a loyal following on a social media platform, it stands to reason that a proportion of your fans will be interested in following you on OnlyFans as well. You can post your link in the copy or body of your content, add it in your bio or include it on your landing page.
A convenient way to promote your OnlyFans content is by connecting your Twitter account with your OnlyFans profile. You can easily do this in Settings > Account. Once your accounts are integrated, you will have the option to post automatically to Twitter every time you post on OnlyFans – easily cross-promoting your page to your followers. To do this, click on ‘Compose new post‘ and select the Twitter icon in the top right-hand corner. Your Twitter audience will see the first part of the text component of your post and then a link to your OnlyFans page.
If you choose to share an OnlyFans post to Twitter in this way, thinking carefully about the first part of your text. It’s very effective if the shared post acts like a ‘sneak preview,’ encouraging your Twitter followers to subscribe to your OnlyFans and see the full post. An added benefit of integrating Twitter is that you will get a tick next to your name on your OnlyFans profile, making your page look more professional.
Forums and websites
When promoting your OnlyFans account, social media is not the only option. Many creators have found success by promoting their accounts on forums or discussion sites such as Reddit. This can even work better than more general social media platforms, because forums tend to be categorised by interest, allowing you to find the exact niche that fits your content. You may be able to find some highly interested and dedicated fans this way, as opposed to social media platforms where audiences numbers tend to be large but broad. Just remember to read the forum rules, as some of these online spaces have limitations on self-promotion.
Websites and newsletters
If you have a personal website or blog, you can add your OnlyFans link there too. Many influencers use OnlyFans like a fan club for the dedicated followers who want more exclusive content and interaction, so it makes sense to advertise your account on your site if you have one.
In recent years, there has been a rise in writers and influencers creating bespoke newsletters using platforms like Mailchimp and Substack. Amongst marketers, the data shows that email marketing frequently outperforms other marketing tools. Email can be very engaging and personal, and if someone is faithfully reading your newsletter they might dig your OnlyFans account too. If you have a newsletter or a mailing list, don’t neglect using this valuable resource to promote your OnlyFans.
Collaborating with another OnlyFans creator is a great way to grow both of your accounts. You can collaborate by creating posts and videos together for your respective OnlyFans feeds or appear together in a co-stream. If you have a friend who makes content that’s similar to yours, chances are their fans will like your content too. Equally, if you have a friend whose content is a little different to yours, their true fans may be more likely to subscribe to your page if they hear about it from a trusted source. They will be happy that the collaboration introduced them to a new kind of content. As well as the possibility of new fans, collaborative content is often fresh, fun and engaging. Cross-collaborating on the platform really can be a win-win for everyone involved.
Promotional discounts on subscriptions
Probably at some point, you have been unsure about putting money down for a new product or service but an introductory deal or special offer has spurred you on. A 2018 study showed that deals and promotions encourage customers to make first-time purchases, and also fuels brand loyalty from long-term consumers.
You can take advantage of this fan-winning strategy by offering promotional discounts on OnlyFans to new and expired subscribers. Discounts can be between 5% and 100% and are usually for 30 days. Offering promotional discounts on subscriptions is a great way to attract new viewers, retain your loyal fanbase, make money and succeed on OnlyFans.
