Whether you’re a big or small influencer, you have the potential to earn on OnlyFans – and that could be life-changing! Thanks to the numerous monetisation features in place on the platform, you can earn from your talents and passions and establish an income stream by doing what you enjoy. Monetising your content is an excellent way to succeed and achieve your goals as a content creator – as long as you cross-promote your account, engage with your followers and keep it active. Here are the ways you can make money on OnlyFans.
One of the most popular ways to make money on OnlyFans is to put your account behind a paywall (also known as the pay-per-view model).
Putting your content behind a paywall can be beneficial to you as an OnlyFans creator because it:
- Adds exclusivity, trust and value to your content.
- Allows you to earn consistent revenue daily, weekly or monthly – enabling you to earn a full or partial income from your creative projects.
- Allows you to establish passive income.
- Generates special interest in your content.
- Encourages loyalty from your fans.
- Makes content creation incredibly rewarding.
On OnlyFans, you can enable subscriptions so that you charge subscribers to view your content.
Also, you can make use of the built-in promotional campaigns on the platform to encourage people to subscribe and to help retain a loyal fanbase. Subscription bundles and discounts allow you to offer a percentage off your subscription price when your viewers commit on a long-term basis (e.g. a 3-month bundle subscription package) or a discount for new subscribers (from 5% to 70%) for a limited amount of time.
To set a subscription price or discount, go to ‘Settings’ and click ‘Subscription price and bundles’.
If you have a free OnlyFans account, you can still make money. In fact, many creators are able to earn a living from their free accounts. One of the ways to do this is to put some of your posts behind a paywall, and this is a really effective way to add exclusivity to your content. To enable paid posts, go to ‘Compose New Post’ and click on the ‘Post price’ icon.
Whether your OnlyFans account is free or paid, your subscribers can show their appreciation for your content by using the tipping function – as long as you have five posts or more on your page. Viewers can tip your profile, posts, direct messages and live stream sessions by clicking on the ‘Tipping icon.’
Using paid messages on OnlyFans is a really popular method to help you make money on the platform. It provides another layer of uniqueness to your content and gives your content a premium element. With direct messages, you can send a variety of content to your fans, welcome new subscribers and mass message your audience to maintain connection and communication.
To make money from direct messages, you can receive tips and if you have a free page, you have the option to set up your account so that viewers can tip to message you. Also, you can put your messages behind a paywall so that viewers would need to pay to see the contents of the message.
One of the best things about the live stream feature on OnlyFans is that you can showcase your talents in real-time on a live video, connect with your audience and make money. You can make money from live streaming on OnlyFans by viewers tipping you throughout the session, and you can set a tip goal if your target is to raise a certain amount of money. If your account is free, you can set up a payment-gated stream. This means that viewers will have to pay a fee to watch the live video.
At OnlyFans, we like to see random acts of kindness on the platform. Therefore, if you’re looking to raise money for charitable causes and give back to society, then you can utilise the fundraising feature on OnlyFans. You can do this by clicking on ‘Compose new post’, select ‘Your target’ and set your fundraising goal.
