With most things in life, starting on the right track will make things easier down the line. Whilst mistakes and wrong directions can be valuable life lessons, wouldn’t it be great if you could launch your OnlyFans account with a bang and ride on that train of success? Here are some ways to do that.
Yes, you do hear stories of people starting an OnlyFans on a whim and doing really well. However, for most, the secret to success is planning. Use our calculator to get an estimate on how much you could earn on OnlyFans and then think about how much time and resources you are willing to put into this. As an influencer, you are probably used to thinking of yourself as a business. Whilst spontaneous content can be wonderful, it’s probably a good idea to plan out most of your content in advance, at least to begin with. Try different types of content and different posting patterns and keep records of what works well, until you find your OnlyFans routine.
Know your audience
We often see between 1% and 5% of a creator’s followers on their free socials sign-up to OnlyFans. The people you’re catering to are likely to be your most dedicated fans, who want to interact with you and your content on a deeper level. Consider how you can sell your OnlyFans to these people.
One entrepreneurial mid-level creator did a poll on her Instagram asking her followers whether she should get an OnlyFans account. As well as planting the idea into the heads of everyone who watches her Instagram followers, many people responded to the story letting her know how much they would love to pay for exclusive content on OnlyFans. When this creator launched her account she messaged these people and they became her core subscribers and highest tippers.
The easiest way is through to promote your OnlyFans is online. We recommend you place your OnlyFans profile link in the “About” fields of your social media profiles, share posts via Twitter or advertise your OnlyFans page anywhere you have followers. You can also get creative about promoting your OnlyFans offline – if you’re a performer you could hold a launch party to spread the word in the physical world. Many of our creators also find success launching OnlyFans with an introductory rate and then raising their price when they get more comfortable with the system.
Start with great content
A great way to launch your OnlyFans account with a bang is to use some exceptional content for its debut. If there’s a wonderful idea you’ve been sitting on for a while, now is the time. Let all your followers on your free platform know that this amazing piece of content is on your OnlyFans to create a sense of FOMO and encourage them to sign up.
Like most entrepreneurial endeavours, success on OnlyFans requires you to be like bamboo; strong and flexible. This might seem in contrast to point one, but it’s not. It’s good to have a plan, but realistically there are unexpected factors that will come into play when you actually start your OnlyFans, and you need to be able to roll with the punches. For example, some creators have problems choosing an appropriate subscription price. If you’re not getting as many subscribers as you expected, you might want to consider lowering your price. If you’ve had a lot of people sign up and you can’t keep up with your inbox, maybe consider raising it. Ultimately, pay attention to what’s working and what’s not, be willing to adapt and enjoy the ride.
