How Do I Become a Successful OnlyFans

Whether you just want a way to earn additional income or you want to be able to support yourself financially, becoming successful in OnlyFans is essential to this plan. With some patience and hard work, you will be able to successfully earn a decent amount of money on OnlyFans. This article will take a closer look just how you can climb to levels of success with your OnlyFans page.

1. Take Advantage of Social Media

Social media is an excellent place for anyone to grow their business. With the sheer number of users on these sites, this is a massive population potential for you to promote yourself on.

However, you do have to be careful about what you post so that you can stay in compliance with the terms and conditions of using these social media sites. Here you can find the Community guidelines for Instagram and here for TikTok.

You also need to know which social media sites are more worthwhile for promotion than others. Instagram and TikTok seem to be the best options for promoting OnlyFans, offering tasteful teasers that can bring new followers to your page.

TIP : Start Social Media accounts as soon as you decide you want to start an Onlyfans.

2. Paid Shout-outs

If you have some money to invest in your OnlyFans, an option that you can consider is to pay for shout-outs. There are a few platforms offering this service like Shoutoutexpress, Shoutcart, or Fiverr among them.

More informally, you can pay for these in social media platforms or messaging platforms like Telegram but I don’t recommend to do that unless it is a very known and reputable seller. The scams in this area have become increasingly worrying and many girls have just lost their money to them. Be careful there.

Ideally, you want to pay for shout-outs in Social Media instead of Onlyfans platform. More popular and bigger Instagram accounts will allow you to attract people from their base to subscribe to your OnlyFans. The problem with this approach is that you will generally need a decent following to take advantage of this option.

Worth mentioning that I don’t use this option for myself at all.

3. Be Consistent

People aren’t going to stick with your page or begin following your page if they don’t see any consistency with your posts. If you are consistent with your content creation, you are going to find a lot more success than if you just post content whenever you feel like it. People love consistency because they know what to expect.

Make a schedule for posting content that your fans can count on, which will help you find success on OnlyFans.

4. Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Tips

Getting money through subscriptions is only one way that you can earn income on this website. You can also ask for tips. If fans are really liking a specific piece of content that you have created, they will be more than willing to oblige this request.

There are a few tools in the platform like the Campaigns option, where you can set up a goal and fans can tip different amounts in order to reach it. You can also offer something in return for these tips, such as exclusive digital or physical content.

Examples of digital content could be: audios, personalised clips or photo sets, videos, etc. And for physical content, you need to check out the TOS very thoroughly first (that’s a good advice in general , lol).

5. Be yourself

This should be the number one tip to be fair as it is the key to success every single time in every single field. We are talking about ‘fans’ and the definition is: someone wo admires and supports a person, sports team, artist, etc.

It would be unsustainable or, at least, very hard to keep up with a totally ‘made-up’ persona.

What do I mean by that?

Of course that you can add fantasy and whatnot to your page and online persona. However, try to be coherent with who you truly are. This way, you won’t get fed up with trying to be someone you are not and be continuously faking it in order to get money.

I am not saying this is not an option, I am just saying it is not an easy one. Perhaps if you are planning to do this for only a short period, then yes, might be successful. If you are wanting to make a living out of it and extend to other endeavours like Youtube, Twitch, etc. it will work much better when you are truly yourself and followers and fans will more likely stick around and support you.

6. Be transparent

There is a section on Onlyfans pages that is publicly displayed and that is the Bio. In order to someone to subscribe to you, they should (sometimes they don’t lol) read it and know what to expect.

Don’t lie is as simple as that. Don’t say you offer something that you don’t. Basically, don’t give false expectations.

Be as clear as possible about what you offer with your subscription.

7. Quality is not that important

Lastly, make sure that you are creating quality content. Attracting subscribers to your OnlyFans is only half the battle; you also need to know how to keep them. If you aren’t regularly producing quality content, people will quickly take their money to some other content creator that will.

Now, what exactly is quality content? Big debate here. In terms of video quality, fortunately, you don’t really need to invest a lot. Smartphones can often do the trick well enough until you can invest in better equipment in the future.

In terms of type of content, for some, a nice goodnight video going to bed can be ‘quality’ and for others, might not be. It is really subjective.

Having said that. I would mention again the ‘be yourself’ point, fans want to see YOU and what you are up to so rather than a very edited video, they sure prefer the homemade vibe of your ‘everyday’ YOU. And I tell this from experience.


In order to be successful on OnlyFans, you need to have people who are willing to pay for your content. By following the suggestions on this post, you can get to higher levels of success as an OnlyFans content creator.
