How to Make More Money on OnlyFans: Camgirl Success Tips!

onlyfans review
 
So you’ve created an OnlyFans account, now what? How do you make sure you succeed and use this platform to its full potential? (And make a ton of money, of course!)

Let’s Review Some Important OnlyFans Tips:

 

1. Set the *right* subscription price

Although it might be tempting to set your monthly price as high as possible (OnlyFans’ current limit is $49.99/month), you want to balance that with what your fans would reasonably afford to pay. You’ll get more followers at a lower price (say, $9.99 or 14.99) and they’ll be more willing to pay for the Pay-Per-View messages and will end up spending ore on you overall. At the same time, don’t shortchange yourself and don’t set your subscription price too low where you might get people expecting too much for too little. It’s all about balance and also knowing your audience! If you’re into Findom, you may very well be able to set a high monthly price.

2. Promote your OnlyFans link online + Advertise your content!

Get creative with this! Definitely promote on Twitter and Instagram, if you’ve got it, as well as promoting your link during your cam shows, if you stream online. You can also share your link on TikTok, Reddit, or your official website/blog. The more places you can showcase your OF link – the better! Of course, don’t go completely overboard and spam viewers with it. Having your link in your twitter bio or even your Twitter name is a great promotion idea. Additionally, make sure your followers know what kind of content they’re signing up for by posting short clips, pics, and polls on your social media.

3. Talk to your fans

The road to a successful camming career and beyond is consistency and communication, so don’t neglect this crucial part! Make a posting schedule and try to stick to it, as well as reply to comments and DMs, which will lead to greater loyalty and subscription renewals. There’s nothing worse than losing subscribers because you simply didn’t post enough content. It might be a good idea to shoot some videos and photo sets in advance, so that you can slowly release them over the course of the month.

4. Try Tiered PPVs (Pay-Per-View Messages)

This is a great way to create stronger connections and make members feel like they’re getting something really exclusive and special to them. You can set different prices (say, $1-3, or $10+) for their messages to unlock. Messages can be anything – photos, videos, or text posts! You can really use your imagination here and create some special photosets, videos or a sexy chat that would make members want to see it. This is a great way of making extra money on OnlyFans!

5. Get to know your audience

You can use your intuition or see what other camgirls are posting, but a really useful way to really find out what YOUR fans want is by making polls! Knowing your audience is the KEY to a successful OnlyFans account! You can figure out what kind of content members want to see next and track which of your posts were successful with the help of the analytics features on OnlyFans. For your PPVs, you can track how many messages have been opened, read, and which prices were the most profitable, so you can learn and make more informed decisions for your future posts.

6. Do promotional campaigns throughout the year

Sales are a great way to draw new people in or engage your current followers by making them feel they’re getting a bargain. Everyone loves a bargain, and promotions create excitement for members. There is always an excuse to do a promotional campaign, be it Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s day, your birthday – whatever you can think of!

7. Consider making your account free – At least for a while!

An alternate strategy to consider is making your account free! This can allow for a higher following as subscribers don’t have to commit to paying a monthly subscription fee. Free accounts can use the pay-per-view post feature, which allows you to monetise individual posts, in addition to pay-per-view messages and tips. Although you don’t have the predictability of subscription income, this strategy can be lucrative and lead to wider brand recognition.

⋆ How to Get Started on OnlyFans: Make $4,000+ a Month!

OnlyFans review camgirl
 
OnlyFans is becoming a VERY lucrative way of making passive income for camgirls without ever having to do live camming! Girls are reporting that they are making $1,000+ a week simply by uploading pics, streaming videos, and messaging their fans. It’s like a Snapchat and a fanclub platform in one! How much you can make on OnlyFans depends on how many members sign up to your account and pay your monthly subscription price.

As an example: To get to the Top 1% earners on OnlyFans you need approximately 725 fans with a subscription price of $9.99!

So, how do you start? It’s easy and almost instant! Just follow the steps below:

 

1. CREATE YOUR ONLYFANS ACCOUNT

It’s 100% free to create an account and it can be done in minutes! OnlyFans doesn’t require you to sign any contract and you will receive 80% of all the money that your subscribers pay for your content! That is an incredible earning percentage! OnlyFans provides a very high quality platform that is constantly improving and adding new functions to make you earn even more. Combined with great customer service and a straightforward user interface, it’s an unbeatable way to make semi-passive income as a camgirl!

2. SETTING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION RATE

What makes OnlyFans so lucrative is the combination of your subscriber numbers and your subscription rate. You decide what you want to charge members to see your content. It can range from Free to $49.99/month. Imagine how much you can earn with having your subscription on the high end of the range! However, most girls charge about $9.99/month and it seems most customers/fans prefer prices in this range. You have to be realistic about it and make the membership price affordable. You can still make a lot of money for setting a ‘low’ subscription price amount and therefore attracting many more subscribers.

 

3. PROMOTE YOUR ONLYFANS PROFILE

Now that you have your account, it’s time to figure out what to post on it and how to promote it! Posting is easy – sexy pics and videos that you post *consistently* that also seem personal is what will make your members stick around and maybe even tip you extra!

The most effective way to promote your OnlyFans account is on your existing social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, etc) as well as on a personal blog, if you have one. You can also promote it on cam, but be careful, some sites do not allow outside promotion. The more your promote – the more subscribers you’ll get, and will be well on your way to earning a 4-figure income each month. Many camgirls have even quit live camming in favor of OnlyFans because of how much easier it is to make money!

 

4. RETAINING YOUR FANS & MAKING EVEN MORE MONEY

Ultimately, fans want your content, so give your fans what they want! Personal messages are key, in my opinion, because they create feelings of intimacy. You can send out free or locked messages (PPV messages) that members would pay for. Being consistent in your posting (say, a few times a day) in addition to creating a varied mix of content (eg. different photosets, videos, polls, personal posts) will keep members engaged and wanting more. I will make a separate post with specific tips on how to succeed on OnlyFans. (Coming soon!) You can even succeed as a non-nude model if you have a big enough fan base built up.

 

5. ONLYFANS AFFILIATE PROGRAM

Don’t forget to make use of OnlyFans’ generous Referral Program. Once you create an account, you will be given you unique referral link that you can use to recruit other models to join. Once they sign up and start earning you will make 5% of their total earnings for LIFE!  That’s a pretty sweet deal and is 100% passive.

This should serve as added motivation 😉

Here are some other ways to make passive income as a camgirl.

How to Make Money Fast: Beginner Camgirl Edition

Let’s say that you need to make a few hundred dollars NOW (or soon) – how do you go about it and what is the quickest way to do it? We are assuming that you have no prior camming experience.


Here is my personal plan of how to do it:

Join 2 (or more) cam sites at the same time. I would recommend not overextending yourself by joining too many at once, but 2 sites would be perfect, so that you can flip back between the two. It will take a few days to get approved, as you need to provide ID for verification, but once you do, you’re all set.

Look through my List of the Top Cam Sites here.

 

Cam Site #1: MyFreeCams.

 

MFC is more geared toward “hangout” atmosphere and doesn’t focus AS much on cam shows. This is a great site to start up on, to get yourself more comfortable with nudity and what it feels like to stream. You will be given a “New Model” label, which will get you more exposure on the site and an opportunity for more tips. Members love new models, but be aware that some do try to take advantage of the inexperience of new girls. Read by beginners post on how to get started on MFC – I would recommend streaming for a few hours at a time to see how well it goes.

 

Cam Site #2: Chaturbate

best camsite chaturbate

Having some experience on MFC will make you more comfortable to stream on Chaturbate, which operates a similar way with private and public shows, but is more sexual than MFC. Generally, the more nudity/sexuality you have on cam, the more viewers you get, and the higher you show up on the list of models. If you’re not comfortable yet with a full-blown cam show, you can do a striptease for tokens and do sexy dances or spanks. Check out my post on how to get started on CB!

If you stream twice in the same day, you should easily make your first $100. Being a new model on MFC will give you an automatic boost, and CB will expose you to more tippers, as it has the largest traffic out of all cam sites.


What else should you do to take that money FAST?

A lot of members love videos, and will often ask for them. If you don’t have any prerecorded videos (which you can do while you wait for your verification/approval), you can still sell them on cam and record them within the week. In my experience, members don’t expect professional quality from videos, in fact, the amateur angle is what is more attractive. You can check out my post about making vids here

manyvids affiliate

Once you have a video or two, or some pics, it’s a really good idea to join ManyVids to sell them! It’s the #1 video selling platform. This way you get even more exposure from more members. 

At this time, join Twitter, where you can promote your videos and the times you’re on cam.


Alternate Way:

What if you don’t want to be going on cam and interacting with members in real time and doing privates, but still want to make money? A GREAT new option is OnlyFans – it’s like an adult-based version of Snapchat. Members sign up to see your photos and short videos and you get money off of their memberships and any extra tips they send! This is becoming a very popular option for camgirls to make extra money on top of camming, or even replace camming completely! You can definitely make a few thousand $ a month on OnlyFans once you accumulate a large enough membership base.

Benefits of Camming: Is It Worth It?

camming worth it
 
So, you want to be a webcam model or are still on the fence about it – Let’s look at some of the things that make being a camgirl GREAT and some that may make you reconsider!

If you want to jump right into it, check out my Top Recommended Cam Sites!

Benefits of Camming 

🤑

Money – This one is easy, and it immediately comes to mind when you think of camming. The money can definitely be GREAT. So great in fact, that you can be out-earning the doctors and lawyers in your city (Check out my post about the highest tips on Myfreecams here). While it’s hard to say how much exactly you will earn, this post has some good approximations.

Freedom (of time, setting your own hours, not having a boss) – This is one of the biggest advantages of camming. You can quit your day job, say goodbye to your boss and not work a minute more for someone else. It is certainly alluring, especially if you’re making more money in a few days than you used to make all month at your old job, and with it comes a sense of empowerment. It’s a beautiful feeling knowing that you’re earned this type of money yourself and that you have the flexibility to work when you wish.

Sexual Expression – For some, this is one of the most beneficial aspects of camming: Being able to explore and express your sexuality in a way that’s very safe AND that earns you money is very alluring and liberating. You can do what you please and what you’ve always wanted to try out and there is no stigma – quite the opposite, usually!

💸Gifts and Attention – Being a camgirl with multiple fans definitely has its perks. At a “vanilla job” (aka the regular, 9-5 job), there is no way you’d be getting lavish gifts, extra money, gift cards sent to you, but all of that is standard in camming. It’s really thrilling to get your first “just because” tip or a gift card to get those clothes or shoes you wanted. Sometimes it feels like all you have to do is ask, and one of your members will be right there to buy it for you.

Work options that are not available to you otherwise, be it due to a disability or life circumstances. The great thing about being a camgirl is that you can work as much or as little as you want/can, and no one will tell you how to do your job. If you can’t handle a full-time job – camming is perfect. If you have mental health issues (common in the industry), physical issues or a disability, camming creates a way for you to work fewer hours and still make great wage, and most importantly, to do it on your own terms.

Ability to create the life that you want. To sum up, being such a non-traditional job, camming can create so many opportunities for having the life you truly want. You can make a ton of money in your 20s, invest wisely, and then follow your dreams, be it starting your business, owning a farm, or just being a stay-at-home mom. It’s possible with camming due to its massive earning potential.

Downsides of Camming

Very short career timeline/Limiting your future options – Sure, you can be earning the big bucks if you’re lucky, but what happens once you start aging, or your life priorities change? Unfortunately, I believe that a lot of cam models will be stuck in this situation, with a big blank in their resume and no way of getting a well-paying job beyond adult work. It definitely can limit your options in the future, if you decide to leave the industry.

No benefits or paid time off – Say what you will about having a corporate job, but at least it does (usually) provide you with some medical/dental benefits, and a paid time off for any emergencies or just mental health days, in addition to vacation time. As a camgirl, you don’t have that luxury, so you need to plan your vacation around camming, and get used to not getting paid whenever you get sick and can’t be online. You are also on your own when it comes to taking care of your medical expenses.

Stigma – The adult work’s stigma, though lessening, is not going away. Most camgirls have to lie to their family and friends about where they work, and that can be a big emotional burden to carry.

Isolation – Isolation and lack of healthy social interaction is a very real problem for camgirl, because you get so wrapped up in the “Cam World” that you can kind of lose yourself. I made a post about the loneliness and isolation that comes with camming here.

Scams and Harassment – Unfortunately, scams, harassment, and even stalking in some cases, are common in the camming industry. It’s very likely that you’ll encounter some of them as a cam model. It does come with the territory, as there are members who think it’s okay to harass, intimidate, or even try to blackmail camgirls. It’s pretty disgusting behavior, and there is little you can do while it’s happening, but you CAN protect yourself ahead of time – read my post about it here.

 
So, despite all the negative elements, many camgirls LOVE their job and feel that it’s the best thing that has ever happened to them. I tend to agree – if you can be smart about minimizing your risks, and being realistic about your earning potential – you can absolutely have a great career in camming and enjoy its benefits for years to come.

⋆ Adult-Friendly Snapchat Alternatives

snapchat adult alternative
 
As a camgirl in the modern world, it is almost expected by members that you have Snapchat access as one of the offline perks you offer. Sending quick pics and videos to members is a GREAT way to make fairly easy cash, promote yourself, as well as promote your others deals, and simply keep members’ interest.

However, Snapchat was not made for adult sites (though, it does of course feature adult content). There is no easy way to go about setting up payment for it, as this feature was not built in. So, camgirls face the problem of setting up recurring membership payments (offline tips or other ways), and then chasing members for payments as memberships expire. This doesn’t seem like a lot of fun for anyone involved, and so adult Snapchat alternatives have cropped up and are getting more and more popular. Best of all, they also accept “just because” tips or tributes from members, so you can make even more money with no extra effort. This is why I find these platforms great for making passive income.

Here are the Best Camgirl-Friendly Alternatives to Snapchat:
