The used panty marketplace

So you’ve heard of people making money hand-over-first on OnlyFans and you’re wondering, “Where do I sign up?”. While this work-from-home gig sounds pretty cushy and lucrative, there’s more to it than just posting sexy pics and charging money for them. With endless free porn available online, it takes a lot more than just snapping a few nudes to make money on OnlyFans.

You need to create an engaging, charismatic, and magnetic persona that people just can’t help but throw money at so they can access your exclusive content. Making money on OnlyFans is an art form. And it starts with creating a killer profile that gets noticed. But how is it done?

Keep reading for 10 must-have tips for creating an OnlyFans profile that brings you followers, fans, and income.

How Does OnlyFans Work?

If you’re familiar with OnlyFans (or you’ve been living under a rock for the last decade), here’s a quick explanation of how this popular subscription site works.

Creators like you make an OnlyFans account that’s either public or private. These work similarly to other social media networks – a public account and its content is visible to anyone with the account name, whereas a private account requires approval. In the case of OnlyFans, users have to pay a subscription fee to access private accounts. This is where creators make their money. 

The minimum subscription fee for a private account on the platform is $4.99. Subscription fees max out at $49.99 per month and are usually reserved for some of the most well-known names in the business. With that being said, a motivated OnlyFans creator can find themselves somewhere comfortably in the middle of these two extremes, making anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand each month on the platform. 

It’s also worth mentioning that some of the most successful OnlyFans creators have two accounts – one public and one private. They use the public account to attract followers and fans before teasing them with exclusive content that’s only accessible on their private account. Loyal fans are more than willing to pay a few dollars a month to see what their favorite creators are posting behind the scenes. And voila – you’ve just converted non-paying followers into dedicated, paying customers. Just know that running two OnlyFans accounts means double the work. The content you post on your free, public account needs to be just as good as what you post for paying subscribers.

10 Tips for Creating a Killer OnlyFans Profile

Now that you know the basics of getting started on OnlyFans, let’s talk about the details. With 1.5 million content creators currently on the platform, competition is fierce. You’re vying for a spot at the top of your fan’s favorites list. After all, a single user may only be able to afford a few subscriptions per month. If you want to make the cut, you need to create a killer profile and bio that gets noticed. 

1. Take an Attention-Grabbing Profile Pic

Let’s start with the most obvious tip – you need an attractive profile picture if you want to attract paying customers. If you’ve ever used apps like Tinder, Match.com, or even Facebook, you’ve probably judged a person by their profile picture at least once. (Despite what history teaches us about not judging a book by its cover.) When someone’s picture catches your eye, you take a pause. Your finger lingers over the “add friend” or “like” button as you give their image a thorough once-over. 

The same goes for your OnlyFans profile picture. In fact, this picture may be even more important than the photo you use on other platforms. Why? A majority of people are searching OnlyFans for NSFW accounts. This means that (as superficial as it may be), looks matter. If you want your OnlyFans profile to stand out and garner the attention it deserves, you need a high-quality profile picture that shows off your best features. This can be a headshot or a picture that shows off your entire body. You know your best features, angles, and sides – utilize them! 

Now, an attention-grabbing profile picture doesn’t just mean you look amazing (although that’s important too). It needs to be different, captivating, crisp, clear, and show attention to detail. Make sure the picture you use isn’t pixelated or grainy. You can opt for a colored pic or black and white. If you know how to use Photoshop, try creating a banner-style profile pic that includes a few flattering, high-quality photos. The best photo size for your OnlyFans profile pic is 1237x80 so make sure the photos you choose fit this frame without shrinking or becoming distorted. 

2. Capitalize on Your Profile Likes

Gaining “likes” has never been so important. While it’s nice for someone to like your post on Instagram or Facebook, the more likes you get on OnlyFans, the better chance your profile has of standing out and getting noticed. 

In some cases, gaining more likes is all about math. The more content you post, the more chances you have for people to like your posts. But not just any posts will do. Be sure to only upload high-quality content, even to your public or free accounts. This content acts as a sneak peek at what you offer on your subscription page. No one wants to pay for low-quality content that you only post sporadically. 

There are a few other ways to get your profile to the top of the OnlyFans newsfeed and earn more likes than your competitors. One is to pin a specific post to the top of your profile. The second is to suggest that everyone likes one of your recent posts. You can even offer a small reward to the first few fans that give you a like. 

While it may seem a little desperate, asking for likes on OnlyFans is a widely accepted practice and one of the best ways to increase your profile’s performance. You can also get creative with it. For example, post something that shows your opinion or stance on a certain non-controversial issue and add a caption that says, “Like this post if you agree”. This can be something as simple as suggesting you hit the beach this weekend. Ask people to “like” your post if they want pics of you in the sun and sand. Now, you’re not only earning likes but teasing fans with future content. 

On OnlyFans, the more profile likes you get, the more likely you are to continue getting likes and, eventually, followers and paying subscribers. 

3. Write a Captivating Bio

While your OnlyFans profile picture will help you make a good first impression, your bio is what will take you the extra mile. Users want to feel connected to you on a personal level. They want to get to know you including your likes, dislikes, hobbies, pet peeves, favorites, and more. The more information you include in your bio, the better.

Some successful OnlyFans creators suggest following the 80/20 rule when writing your profile bio. This means that 80% of your bio should include what subscribers expect from you and 20% should be true details about yourself. Use your bio as a way to sell yourself. Let potential subscribers know what they’ll get if they subscribe. Include details about the type of content you post and how often. The key here is to follow through with what you say. If your bio says that you post every day, you need to post every single day! Failing to do so will make you appear dishonest and could cause you to lose followers and ruin your reputation. 

In addition to telling people what they can expect from your page, your bio should also tell them what NOT to expect. For example, if you have no plans to post NSFW or adult content, state that clearly. With an increasing number of NSFW content filling the pages of OnlyFans, some users have come to expect it. Not posting adult content makes you a minority, not the majority. Your bio should also be short, sweet, and engaging. A perfect balance of flirtatious and captivating without being so long that people nod off while reading it.

You can also use your bio to direct them to your tip menu and any other content or products you’re selling. Just do so in a tactful way that doesn’t come off as too promotional or pushy. Tips let you earn more money on top of what you make from monthly subscriptions.

4. Use the Site’s Story Feature

Stories are becoming the new norm on nearly every social media platform from Instagram and Facebook to Snapchat, including OnlyFans. And if it’s there, why not use it? The OnlyFans story feature is a great way to give your fans a behind-the-scenes look at your world. Try using this tool at least once a week, if not more. Posting a short story that shows you getting ready for work, working out, cooking, or climbing into bed could garner you not only attention but even more paying subscribers. It’s also a great way to showcase your playful, fun personality. Plus, posting stories helps your profile stand out from other accounts that don’t use this helpful feature. 

Other story ideas include posting about an upcoming event, telling fans about another OnlyFans account you have, or informing them about a recent post. Similar to the other content on your profile, make sure your stories are high-quality and engaging. The content you post is a representation of yourself and your work ethic. The more attention you get on your stories, the more likes your profile will get and, ultimately, more subscribers. 

5. Promote Yourself and Your Account

Sometimes, getting your OnlyFan profile noticed means bringing in followers, fans, and attention from other sources. And the best place for attracting fans is social media. If you’re creating an OnlyFan account, chances are, you’re already on a few other social media platforms including Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, and Facebook. Capitalize on your current following by promoting your OnlyFans page on these outlets. 

For example, if you have 3,000 followers on Instagram, add your OnlyFans profile name to your bio or post a story directing people to your page. Even if a fraction of these followers check out your OnlyFan account and another portion of them subscribe, you just leveraged your social media following to earn money. Way to go! 

6. Consider an Alias 

Being successful on OnlyFans doesn’t mean sharing your identity. In fact, you can remain anonymous on OnlyFans and still make money. When creating your profile and choosing your name, consider using an alias or ‘stage name’. Choose a name that’s simple, and easy to remember, but also stands out as unique or different. There are countless online tools to help you come up with a profile name that represents your personality while also being memorable. You can also use a combination of your first, middle, and last name or a maiden name. You can also choose a handle or name that isn’t a name at all. Check out these cool OnlyFan usernames that are sure to get your profile noticed. 

If you take this approach, make sure that your social media accounts match up. For example, if you’re using an alias on OnlyFans but promoting your profile on your personal social media pages, it won’t take long for people to figure out who you are! You can always create new social media accounts that you only use to promote your OnlyFans account, keeping your online world and the real world completely separate. 

Another thing many people don’t realize is that you don’t need to show your face on OnlyFans. There are plenty of successful creators who never show their faces. Whether they simply wear a costume or mask or post pictures from the neck down, with a little creativity, you can make a successful OnlyFans profile without revealing your true identity. 

7. Set a Reasonable Price

Sad to say but some people on OnlyFans are price shopping. While some users are searching for quality content, regardless of the price tag, others may be turned off by your profile if your price is set too high. Even though you can’t make everyone happy or prevent someone from scrolling past your profile due to price alone, you can try to strike a happy balance when it comes to price.

Creators just starting out on the platform should price their subscriptions at the lower end of the scale. Once you start gaining a bigger following and a name for yourself in the industry, you can slowly increase your prices. But be sure to let your followers know before you do this. If users think for even a second that you’re more focused on the money than you are on your fans, you could be facing a quick fall from fame. 

Before setting your rates, consider these questions:

  • How long does it normally take you to create your content?
  • How good is the quality of your content?
  • How often do you post?
  • What are you using your OnlyFans earnings for – rent money or fun money?

Setting your price also has to do with supply and demand. If you’re posting unique content that no one else offers, you can reasonably set your rates slightly higher. 

8. Create a Brand or Persona

When you create an OnlyFans profile, you’re essentially selling yourself. That means creating a brand that you can market and sell. Branding yourself is also about selling an experience and an environment. Think about how you want your followers to feel when they visit your page. What type of atmosphere are you looking to create? Fun and playful or sexy and serious? Are you trying to inspire and motivate people or simply entertain them? All of these factors go into branding your OnlyFans profile. You should also consider these elements when designing your page, choosing your profile picture, and even creating your bio.

OnlyFans is also a great space for getting into character. If you don’t want to reveal your identity, why not create a persona that represents who you are or the person you’ve always wanted to be? For example, are you shy or reserved on the outside but have a secret fetish or kink? You can use your OnlyFans profile and account to indulge in your deepest desires and create a character or persona that embodies all of these amazing qualities. 

9. Choose a Specific Niche

With millions of OnlyFan creators out there, you need to narrow down the competition. One way to do this is by choosing a niche for your profile. Do you plan to post NSFW or adult content? Within this niche alone there are countless paths you can take from ASMR or fetish content to BDSM, couples, or swingers content. The more specific you can get, the less competition you’ll have and the more likely your profile is to stand out.

Some of the most popular categories on OnlyFans include:

  • Health and Fitness
  • Recipes
  • Beauty
  • Photography
  • Sports
  • Fashion 
  • Music

Not all OnlyFans content is NSFW. Don’t be afraid to branch out and include a few different categories in your profile. Just avoid trying to do too much at once. Try to find an angle that no other OnlyFans creators use and jump on it. Sometimes, your success depends on supply and demand. If what you have to offer is unique and in demand, your profile can skyrocket to the top along with your earnings. 

10. Keep an Eye on the Competition 

Speaking of competition on OnlyFans, the old saying, “keep your friends close and your enemies closer” could offer you some useful insight. Creating an eye-catching profile means giving the people (potential subscribers) what they want. And the best way to figure out what that is is to check out what other successful profiles within your niche look like.

Do they include their face in their profile picture or is it just their body? Some food or fashion accounts may not include a person in their profile picture at all but instead a beautiful dish of food or a makeup pallet. Check out how much these accounts are charging for their monthly subscriptions, how often they post, and what types of content get the most likes. The more you know about your competition the more you can learn from them and then use that information to create a profile that’s bigger, better, and more lucrative. 

But competition doesn’t always have to be a bad thing. Another way to give your OnlyFans profile a boost is to collaborate with other successful creators. Instead of feeling threatened by them, get inspired. Being successful on OnlyFans is similar to any other business and requires networking skills. See what other creators are interested in giving you a shout-out on their profile for one in return. If you’re confident about your content, you should have no issues with sharing the limelight in an effort to broaden your reach.
