how to get onlyfans subscribers

OnlyFans is a subscription-based content platform that allows creators to share paid-for exclusive content with their fans. It’s largely popular for allowing men and women to create and share their own adult content but OnlyFans is much more than that. Content creators use the platform to share a lot more than just sexy pictures and videos. Every day there is amazing new fitness, health, beauty, and even DIY content being shared on the platform. For a lot of creators, OnlyFans is an opportunity to get rewarded for all the hard work that goes into creating the content they produce.

Before OnlyFans monetizing your social media and content was a real challenge for most people. Content creators had to rely largely on brands wanting to target their following to generate an income but now creators can monetize their following simply by creating an exclusive and unique experience for a section of fans willing to pay a subscription for it. It’s ingenious and empowering for a lot of creators who previously had to scrape and claw to make a living off of their content.

Getting rewarded for your talent and creativity isn’t all that simple though. For a lot of creators getting the number of eyes on their content and ultimately the money they want is hard. Creators on OnlyFans earn primarily through subscriptions and fans viewing their Pay-per-view content, ultimately that means low subscribers equals low bucks. That can be demoralizing when you’ve spent a long time creating content. That’s why we’ve put together a quick guide to help you get more gain more exposure, subs, and all the money you deserve for the content you put out.

Getting started with OnlyFans

If you’re just hearing about OnlyFans, or you’ve been thinking about taking the leap this quick breakdown will help you go from thinking about it to having an account set up in no time. Setup is super easy and it shouldn’t take you long at all. Follow the steps below and then keep reading to find out how you can gain subscribers. If you’ve got an account going already skip below and let’s get you those subscribers you want.

Setting up your OnlyFans

If you’ve built up a following that loves your content and you want to monetize that OnlyFans is the way to go. You can go from sharing content for free to looking forward to a decent side income in just a couple of clicks.

Signing up for OnlyFans couldn’t be easier. You can sign up using your Twitter account, Google account or by setting up an account with a name, an email, and a password. It’s literally that easy.

After you’ve set up your account you’ll have to set up your banking details and confirm your age but that’s also fairly simple and shouldn’t take you a long time at all.

Setting your subscription rates

Once you’re done with your account setup, the next step to you monetizing your content on OnlyFans will be setting a subscription rate. Your subscription rate will depend on how how much you think the fans you attract will be able to afford. The awesome part about this is that you’re in total control and you can set an amount you feel will work for you and your fans.

The key to setting a great subscription rate is understanding the type of fans your content is aimed towards. Set your rate too high and your fans might just stick to seeing the content you post on Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, or whatever place you choose to promote your content. On the other hand, if you set your rate too low you might end up with a lot of fans and still not make enough to feel happy about it. It’s better to have 250 fans paying $6.99 than to have 100 fans paying 15 bucks each. At $6.99 with 250 subscribers you can look forward to over a thousand dollars in extra income each month and that’s not a bad place to start.

Subscription rates can be as low as $4.99 and go up as high as $49.99. You should keep in mind that OnlyFans keeps 20% of all the money you generate.  Don’t be afraid to start small, OnlyFans no get rich quick scheme by any means. You can always raise your prices as you create more content or once you have a better understanding of your fans and what they want.

Running your OnlyFans Account

Once you’re on OnlyFans you’ll have to actually run and maintain your account. This is the part most people struggle with. Successfully running an OnlyFans account will mean putting a lot of effort into finding out the type of content your fans want, engaging with your fans and keeping them excited about following you, and creating content consistently to show your fans they can trust you to keep them satisfied.

Gaining OnlyFans subs

Many creators have a hard time with this and a lot of them just accept that they’ll never make a lot of money on OnlyFans but you don’t have to accept that. Below are a bunch of strategies you can use to gain subscribers and make the money you want from OnlyFans.

Ask for subscribers

This might seem obvious but it really isn’t to most people. The best way to gain subscribers is to ask for them. OnlyFans estimates that about 1%-3% of your social media followers will subscribe to your OnlyFans, that’s low especially if you don’t have a large social media following, to begin with.

If you want subscribers you’ll have to ask for them. Every so often tells your followers you adore them but that you would much rather be subscribers too. You can’t always wait on them to make the move so you might as well make it for them. If you don’t, somebody else will. If your subscription rate seems reasonable, ask your followers to take the leap even if it’s just for a month. You really don’t have anything to lose. If they love your content they can stay on and if they don’t they can go back to see the free stuff. It’s really not a bad deal.

Go ahead and ask, don’t be shy, unless being shy is your thing in which case some of the other strategies below might work better for you.

Promote your content everywhere

If people don’t know your content exists they are not magically going to think to look for you on OnlyFans. You have to promote your OnlyFans content in as many places as possible. Remember, if asking for 5% of the people who come across your content constantly to subscribe is being ambitious you might as well increase your chances and get in front of as many eyes as possible.

Promote your content on Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, TikTok, Discord, and even Tinder if you’d like. The more places your content is in the more chances you’ll have of attracting new subs. Just be careful not to violate any T&Cs when sharing your links and content. Be sure to read all the rules for each platform you use so you don’t lose all the memories and contacts you have built up.

If you’re not too sure how to share your links without getting shadowbanned or risking your platform resources like Linktree, Carrd and Bitly will help you get around most T&Cs about sharing links.

A great way to promote your content is to understand where your fans hang out. Twitter and Instagram seem the obvious choices but you shouldn’t stop there. There are a lot of forums and chatrooms all over the internet where you could be promoting your content. Once you understand what draws your current fans to you, you can use that to find similar kinds of fans. Understanding your subscribers is the best way to figure out how you can successfully promote your content to people similar to them.

Create anticipation and desire

Turning followers into fans is difficult for most people and that’s because their content strategy and promotion aren’t as good as they could be. You can’t expect your followers to turn into paying subscribers if they believe all they are going to get is the same old content they have always seen for free.

Tweak your promotional content for social media to create an expectation about what your OnlyFans content might look like. Create some suspense and excitement for it. You have to keep your followers wondering how good the exclusive content they’ll get is based on the limited content you share for free.

If you want to turn more followers into paying subs you have to show them that what they see from you is only half of what you create and that they’d have even better content if they were subscribed.

Engage with your followers

Over and above promoting your OnlyFans in as many places as possible, you should take the time to engage with the people that follow you, like, comment on, and share your content. Respond to as many comments as you can, and tell people you appreciate the love they are showing for your work.

If people can see that you value their support they will be more likely to take it a step further and subscribe to your paid content. Interacting with your followers will also show people that come across your content that they can also look forward to having a personal experience with you. Getting your followers onto OnlyFans is all about showing them that their current experience could be even more intimate and immersive if they subscribed.

It will also give you a lot of ideas to work with for new content or strategies to find even more subs.

Engage with other creators

Another great way to pick up subscribers and promote yourself is to engage with other creators in the same space as you. Engaging with other creators exposes you to new people, helps you come up with ideas, and allows you to build up a network that creates opportunities for you.

Comment on, like, and even share content from other users. Everyone loves getting recognized for their work and the support you give others will be returned in one way or another. If other creators feel you genuinely want to see them do well, they will return the favor and help you along on your journey too.

Engaging with other creators will help build your network and reputation in your niche. More than it’ll also get you, new friends, you can relate to and share ideas with.

Another big reason you be interacting with other creators is that collaborating with them on content could be something your fans really want from you. Working with other creators will help you improve your skills, show you what you’ve been missing and improve your fanbase. All that will ultimately lead to you having more subs and making more money.

Do promotional subscription fees

Another way you could be getting subscribers for your OnlyFans is by running promotions on your subscriptions. You can offer your social media followers a discounted opportunity to subscribe to your exclusive content. Running a promo is a great way to get followers to take the leap to fans. It gives your followers that might not be willing to pay your sub fee or might be skeptical about your content a chance to take a peek behind the curtain.

Promotional offers are great because you can set them to expire at a certain date or once you’ve reached a certain number of subscribers. If you price it low enough depending on your standard fee you’ll almost likely pick up a lot of new subscribers. After that, all you have to do is share enough high-quality content to show that you subscribe to your content will be well worth the price you’re asking.

This is a great strategy because it’s almost always bound to work and at the end of it all the worst that could happen is that some members won’t renew their subscriptions.
