As we start a new year many of us are hopeful for a successful 2021. Some of you may be looking to plan your content and get organised, so now is a great time to collect your ideas for the year ahead. Whether you are looking to change things up or kick start the momentum of your page, creativity is key to making sure you stand out. If you’re in need of some inspiration, we have collected some ideas to help you get off to a great start on OnlyFans this year. Read on for some content ideas for 2021.
Create a new series
A way to keep your fans hitting that resubscribe button in 2021 is to keep them excited for your next piece of content. Episodic content is creating sequential, engaging content that is part of a series. This can be centred around a certain theme or topic , similar to a TV show. Many vloggers use this method as it keeps your fans hooked and allows more detail within storytelling without making videos too long. Podcasters and actors often choose to release episodes weekly to keep their fans coming back to see the next one. Comedian Tonio Skits is releasing his comedy show “The Bet” in separate parts to keep his fans engaged.
A series can also be as simple as using certain days of the week for specific topics such as the infamous ‘Throwback Thursday’ (the vault is a great feature to help with this one). This will help with planning and can involve fun themes such as ‘Workout Wednesdays’. Jordy Boulet-Viau hosts a ‘Motivation Monday’ series on OnlyFans where he gives fans live updates and talks about all things mental health and motivation. You could even create a diary entry series to update your fans on your weekly activities or choose to go-live on certain days so fans know when they can expect to check-in and catch you in real-time.
Involve your fans
Social media is a two-way street and engaging with your fans brings value for both you and them. By using interactive tools on OnlyFans, you can create a conversation that allows your fans to think, react and get to know you better. This type of content can strengthen relationships and keep them following you long term.
This year, you could start a ‘challenge’ within your area of expertise. For example, if you are a fitness expert you can set your fans weekly training tasks. Or if you are a chef, you can challenge your fans to try versions of your latest recipes. Giveaways and contests are another great way to get fans involved as everyone loves the chance to win something. You can even use the tips feature in a creative way to get people to bid for a chance to win.
If you want to make topics interactive for your fans you could offer a useful or fun quiz. Using the ‘poll’ feature is a quick and easy way to receive interaction with minimal effort from your fans. This not only shows you are listening and want their opinions but can help you understand each other better. The beauty of questions is they can be about anything and your fans might just surprise you!
Start a conversation
There are a whole host of interesting creators on OnlyFans and many have found their niche. Finding your niche is a great way to really connect with fans through relatable converstaions and will provide many content ideas for 2021. If you’re looking for even more ways to get your fans talking, why not host a Q&A session around your niche, a certain topic or even yourself. This is a great way to answer questions around your career, life or anything in between! You could also share reviews and recommendations, start discussions around your favourite books, or the latest TV series you binge-watched over the holidays (we all did it!)
Keeping the topic relevant and relatable to your audience will allow them to have something to say back and you could even make this a series too! If you’re an entrepreneur you could host a different weekly Q&A on a range of topics from finance to marketing. Or if you are a musician you can discuss where you get your inspiration, share your favourite songs and question your fans on theirs.
Teach your fans
As many of us are spending more time at home, it’s a great chance to learn new hobbies or sharpen skills online. Your fans look up to you and many are looking for a chance to learn how you do things best. OnlyFans is a great way to teach your fans and monetise your knowledge too. Tutorials can keep your fans engaged and provide something they will value. Makeup artists such as The PlasticBoy and Chameleon Kandy are providing in-depth tutorials to help their fans get show-stopping looks whilst skateboarder Will Estus uses them to teach his top tricks. Demos and how-tos are another great way to teach your fans, and you can even offer one-on-one consultations. No matter what your talents are, people love to learn. Many creators are bursting with industry knowledge as you can learn languages with Sara Sofia, learn business skills with Sierra Nicole and catch professional photographer Danny Batista teaching his editing techniques.
OnlyFans provides the opportunity for creators and fans to get to know each other on a more personal level than other social media sites. Now more than ever, people are craving connections and want to see authenticity from creators. From audio messages to personal DM’s there are so many opportunities for one-on-one interaction but when it comes to content, you can get just as personal on your feed. Many chose to share a ‘behind the scenes’ look into their lives on OnlyFans as it provides a more personal experience. The great thing about heading behind the scenes and sharing your authentic self means you don’t always need polished content. Using ephemeral content such as stories are also a way to show your fans your day to day life without having to be perfect. If you are working on something new, progress updates are another opportunity to provide content that is real and your fans will love being kept in the loop.
Host an event
As many of us are still experiencing lockdowns, online events have become increasingly popular and show no signs of slowing down. Going live on OnlyFans is another great way to get personal with fans as it provides an exclusive feel and offers live interaction. If you are a musician you could host a live performance or if you are knowledgeable in your field you can teach your fans through a webinar-style event. Hosting an event is also a great way to reach new fans as you can build hype around your offering and encourage people to sign up, almost like an entry fee to a traditional event. The opportunities are endless in what your event can be focused around so as part of your content ideas for 2021, why not bring your fans together in real-time?
Get others involved
You can even get other creators involved in your live events! The co-streaming feature can boost the following of both creators involved and gives your fans something a little different. As it is currently more difficult to meet up in real life, you can provide your fans with views from other creators to help boost the excitement of your event. Reaching out to new people is also a great way to change things up for 2021, and you could even reach out to new photographers or co-writers for your page too.
This year, more than ever, many are facing hardships and giving back to others is something we can all support. So why not use your platform to get your fans interested in causes and topics that mean the most to you? You can create content focused around the cause and also raise funds through the platform. Elijah Daniel is using his page to raise money for the homeless, whilst many other creators also share content that spreads messages to help positively impact those in need. On OnlyFans you can choose to set fundraising goals and donate to charities of your choice. Check out our quick video to learn how.
Staying creative can be hard sometimes but there are many tools to help your ideas stay fresh. Some content ideas for 2021 can be found using national holidays or seasonal calendars to provide you with something new to focus on all year round. You can also expand on your most popular posts from 2020, using your most liked content and creating everything from additional swipe throughs or giving your fans a behind the scenes look at the creation. Using feedback from your fans is key to knowing what they like but it is also helpful to take a look at the type of content you actually enjoy creating. If you enjoy making it, chances are your fans will like it too.
We hope you find some of these content ideas useful for this year and beyond. Do you have any content ideas for 2021 yourself? Let us know in the comments!
