If you’re not using messages on OnlyFans, you could be missing out on valuable opportunities to connect with your audience. Direct messages (DMs) allow you to connect and strengthen your relationships with your fans. Also, there are many creative ways you can use DMs to earn more on OnlyFans. Here are some ways of utilising this feature to your advantage as a content creator.
Send a variety of media
You can send text-only DMs on OnlyFans or include a variety of media. You can attach pictures and videos to messages, or record a voice note. After all, variety is the spice of life! So, using different media formats is a great way to keep your fans engaged and excited.
Automated welcome message
Some creators choose to send an automated message to new fans when they subscribe. This can be a nice way to say hello, introduce fans to your page and make them feel welcome – with little effort required. To set up an automated message for new fans, go to Settings > Chats. You can make your message text-only or add media (such as photos or videos).
There are many reasons you might want to send a mass message to all of your fans. Perhaps you have a really cool live stream planned and you want to let them know. Maybe you want to send some premium content in a message – hidden behind a paywall – that you want as many fans to open as possible. Whatever your intention, it’s easy to send mass messages on OnlyFans. To do this, go to your homepage, click the message icon, and then click on the plus icon. You can send your message to all of your fans, or send it to those on a particular list.
One big incentive to make use of messages on OnlyFans is that you can receive tips from your followers in DMs. The more you interact with your fans on a personal level through messaging, the more likely they are to show their appreciation by tipping you.
Another way some creators use tipping in DMs is to exchange content and receive payment from individual fans for content or interaction. We’ve seen this used really creatively. For example, some coaches or tutors use DMs to give personalised advice, and then receive payments in tips. If you want to encourage this kind of interaction, you could put a tip menu as your pinned post on your page, offering different types of content or services for a certain tip amount.
If you have a free account, you have the option to not accept messages without a tip from viewers who you don’t follow back. Free accounts can have high follower counts, which means that you are likely to receive a lot of messages from your fans. Plus, adding the tipping feature in messages if you have a free account can add value to your content and create a premium element to the content you’re trying to showcase. You can enable this by going to Settings > Chats. You may be surprised at how many fans will pay just to interact with you.
Send paid messages
A paid message contains content hidden behind a paywall that your fans pay to unlock. This feature is one of the most popular ways to make money on OnlyFans and is available for all accounts on the platform – free or paid. Therefore, this can be a big earner for you as a content creator. Also, whilst paid posts are only available to free OnlyFans accounts, all creators on the platform can use paid messages.
