ATTENTION: Selling nudes on OnlyFans has become the big new way to make money on the internet (over $10k per month), so I’m going to explain EXACTLY how to do it right, and how to avoid the common MISTAKES that can totally tank your OnlyFans money.
Making money on OnlyFans has now become just as easy as making money with premium Snapchat accounts used to be. Actually, it’s way easier on OnlyFans than it ever was on Snapchat, due to the central fact that the platform is precisely designed for selling nudes and porn. A lot of people don’t realize that Snapchat’s terms specifically FORBID the selling of subscriptions to explicit content accounts.
And that’s a HUGE issue for you, if you’re trying to sell nudes online. Using a premium Snapchat account can be very profitable for a while, but when your account finally gets deleted (and it will), you may be back to square one, having to rebuild your naughty content operation. There are ways to deal with this problem, but wouldn’t it be nice not to have to worry about it?
Well, on OnlyFans, you don’t EVER have to worry about getting your account shutdown for posting nudes and adult content. The platform was built specifically to provide an easy way for adult content creators to sell their nudes and explicit videos to their fans.
And, it turns out, fans LOVE it! OnlyFans.com has absolutely exploded in popularity, and a LOT of cam girls, pornstars, and amateur couples are making shit-tons of GREEN money on it!
Now, being successful and making good money on OnlyFans is just not gonna happen if you don’t have a way to get traffic to your profile. You also need to know the advanced tricks that the pro models use to keep their fans subscribed and paying membership fees month in, and month out. Once you get all this down, you can start banking BIG. That’s what you’re gonna learn here!
If you don’t yet have an OnlyFans account, take a second to signup for one here before we go any further. Starting an OnlyFans the right way is extremely important, so be sure to pay careful attention to what I’ll be laying out here.
How Making Money on OnlyFans Works
Okay, so basically, you can think of OnlyFans as a for-pay version of Twitter/X. You have a profile, a timeline of your posts, and an avatar just like on Twitter. The main difference is that your posts are protected from being viewed by anyone who is not subscribed to your profile.
And you can charge whatever you want for access to it. Many newer models and cam girls start at around $10 per month, but there are more established content creators charging $40 and up. You can also make money on OnlyFans when your subscribers tip you, or pay for private messages. You get to keep 80% of whatever they spend, and the site keeps 20% to cover their processing and other expenses.
New models should set their monthly subscription price at around $10. As a model’s popularity and exposure rises, though, she/he can raise the monthly price accordingly.
When you’ve got new content to post, you simply upload it to your timeline, the same way you would to Twitter. That goes for pics and videos, but if you’d like to do a live stream (which can be a great way to boost earnings — more on that below!), then just open up a live stream and have at it. A link to your stream will appear in a post on your timeline, and all your paid subscribers will be able to access it.
Live-streaming is important because it allows you to bond with your fans and warm them up for sales and tips. Models who don’t use it are making a BIG MISTAKE.
When it comes time to get paid on OnlyFans, all you need to do is input your bank information and setup direct deposit, then request a withdrawal. You can also get paid via E-wallet payment platforms.

Now, making money on OnlyFans depends a lot on how much traffic you can send to your profile. That’s why it helps a ton to have an active Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, or Instagram account. Twitter is the best platform to use for this purpose, since it allows adult content and doesn’t freak out when you direct traffic to adult areas of the internet.
OnlyFans was designed to integrate well with Twitter, so creating a Twitter account, and investing time to grow it, can be very helpful in generating more OnlyFans money.
The integration with Twitter is excellent, and you can have an automatic tweet sent out when you update your OnlyFans profile. So, if you don’t already have a Twitter account setup, you should get on that and start building it. It can really help. Make sure you load it up with pics, and fully fill out the bio area on your profile.
Boosting Your OnlyFans Money (Subscriptions & Tips)
Now, once you’ve got some subscribers on your OnlyFans account, you need to keep them happy so they continue to renew their subscriptions, making you more money. The key way to do this is to post a steady stream of hot content, and engaging with your members as much as possible.
I generally recommend that models charge only a small amount for private messages, or nothing at all, because engaging with members that way is a great way to create devoted fans who will tip you huge amounts down the road. Remember, subscription revenue is only ONE way to make money on OnlyFans. Tips can also be a HUGE revenue source on the platform.
OnlyFans models should NOT charge much for direct messaging with subscribers. DMs are a great way to bond with and “warm-up” fans for huge tipping down the road.
As I’ve mention ad-nauseum all over this blog, forming bonds with your fans is the single best way to make more money off your fan following. By chatting with them, sharing life experiences, and bonding over common interests, you can develop die-hard regulars who will support you in any number of ways (including massive TIPS).
And while private messaging can be a great way to cultivate regulars, doing live streams can be just as effective. Shooting the breeze with your fans live can help them warm up to you and see you as a real person — a real friend. When you strike that kind of personal connection with them, you’re well on the way to seeing huge tips and continued subscription re-bills.
So, basically, don’t neglect your subscribers. Keep the content coming, do frequent live streams to just hangout, and invest time in direct messages to form those bonds that will payoff BIG over time.
How Much Money Can You Make on OnlyFans?
A lot of new models and adult content creators are very curious about just how much money can be made on OnlyFans, and as someone who’s done the research, I can tell you the numbers are downright stunning. It’s been reported that some models on OnlyFans are pulling in over $10,000 PER MONTH, but the top models there are doing WAY better than that.
OnlyFans has actually become a major magnet for big-name pornstars. It makes sense, since OnlyFans allows adult stars to offer personally-produced content to their large fandoms for a reasonable subscription price. As I mentioned before, fans absolutely love it. The business model has proven to be extremely successful.
Pornstars have found that OnlyFans is pretty much the perfect way to make a lot of money off their fan base. It’s relatively easy for them to produce and deliver lots of explicit content for their profiles just using their smartphones.
But how much money can YOU, as a beginner, expect to make on OnlyFans? Well, it depends a lot on how you go about generating traffic to send over to your profile. As I mentioned earlier in this post, having a solid social media following (especially on Twitter) can help dramatically in engineering a huge monthly income on OnlyFans.
Now, creating a large social media following can take a long-ass time for a new model, especially if you don’t have much experience on the platforms you’re using. For example, on Twitter, it typically takes a LOT of posting, interaction with followers, and uploading of pics and videos to cultivate interest.
Thankfully, though, there IS a shortcut for models who’d rather not invest the time and effort in building a social media army from scratch. Cam sites can be used to dramatically accelerate the process!
Using Cam Sites To Make More on OnlyFans
If you’re completely new to the online adult industry, you’re best and fastest bet is to start camming on Chaturbate, which will allow you to build a large fan following fairly quickly. Generally considered the top cam site, Chaturbate has got excellent traffic levels, so your exposure will get a nice and needed boost.
The main thing to keep in mind when you start as a webcam model is that you need to be patient at first. Since you’ll be brand-spanking new, it will take a bit of time to develop a large group of fans who will tips, buy shows, and buy subscriptions to your OnlyFans. But trust me, it’s still a MUCH faster way then having to build social media accounts without this tactic.
Just make sure to go on cam regularly, at around the same time of day each day. That way, viewers will be able to find you again, and that crucial “warming” process will be allowed to continue until those viewers turn into tipping regulars. This process usually takes several sessions, but again, it’s a 100% free way to build up fans.
Once you’ve got some attention on Chaturbate, be sure to promote your Twitter and get as many of your viewers to follow you there as possible. Since Twitter is adult-friendly, you can promote your OnlyFans account to your heart’s content on your timeline there. This is EXTREMELY powerful.
Making money on cam sites almost never happens immediately, because you’re new and lack fans. After several sessions, though, the money can really start rolling in as fans develop.
But even if you don’t make much money, you’ll be building a fan base that you can then promote your OnlyFans to. It’s VERY worth it, trust me.
So, basically, just DON’T QUIT! Keep camming for a few weeks, and odds are, you’ll have a nice group of fans and regulars at the end of it who will buy your stuff.
Promote your Twitter regularly while you’re on cam, and you can then easily promote your OnlyFans from there. This is really the most effective tactic being used, right now, by new models trying to jumpstart OnlyFans sales.

TikTok and Instagram For OnlyFans Promotion
When it comes to promoting your OnlyFans on Instagram and TikTok, there are some key strategies you can employ to effectively engage with your target audience and entice them to join your subscription-based content.
1. Create Compelling Content: Start by crafting engaging and visually appealing content that resonates with your audience’s interests. Post high-quality photos, short videos, and teasers that showcase your personality and what subscribers can expect on your OnlyFans. Use Instagram’s grid layout to your advantage, creating a visually appealing profile that highlights your content.
2. Leverage Stories and Reels: Both Instagram Stories and TikTok offer short, immersive formats that allow you to connect with your audience on a personal level. Use Stories to share behind-the-scenes glimpses of your content creation process, daily life, and exclusive sneak peeks for your OnlyFans subscribers. TikTok’s Reels can be used to create fun, entertaining videos that showcase your unique style and entice viewers to learn more about your OnlyFans.
3. Engage with Your Audience: Social media is all about building relationships. Respond promptly to comments, messages, and direct interactions from your followers. Engage in conversations, ask questions, and encourage feedback. This not only strengthens your connection with existing followers but also attracts new ones.
4. Tease Exclusive Content: Give your audience a taste of the exclusive content they can access on your OnlyFans. Share teasers, snippets, or previews of your premium content to create a sense of FOMO (fear of missing out) and entice them to subscribe for the full experience.
5. Utilize Hashtags: Hashtags are a powerful way to increase the discoverability of your posts. Research and use relevant hashtags related to your content, niche, and industry. This helps your posts reach a wider audience beyond just your followers.
6. Collaborate with Influencers: Consider collaborating with influencers or creators in your niche who have a substantial following. They can help you reach a larger audience that might be interested in your OnlyFans content. Collaborations can include shoutouts, joint content, or challenges that encourage user participation.
7. Run Contests and Giveaways: Organize contests or giveaways on your social media platforms to generate excitement and engagement. Encourage users to participate by tagging friends, sharing your posts, or using a specific hashtag. Offering a free subscription or exclusive content as a prize can incentivize participation.
8. Cross-Promote: If you’re active on both Instagram and TikTok, cross-promote your content between the two platforms. For example, you can create a teaser on TikTok and direct viewers to your Instagram for the full version, where they’ll find the link to your OnlyFans.
Remember, consistency is key. Regularly update your social media profiles with fresh content and maintain an active presence. By strategically using Instagram and TikTok, you can effectively promote your OnlyFans, attract subscribers, and build a loyal fan base that eagerly anticipates your exclusive content.
