How to Promote OnlyFans, According to Creators

  • Unlike other platforms, OnlyFans does not have a discovery page, which can make it hard for creators to get noticed.
  • OnlyFans influencers typically have to advertise their accounts outside of the platform.
  • Here’s how several creators promote their accounts using Reddit, TikTok, and more.

One of the keys to gaining an OnlyFans audience is to market yourself outside the platform. Many creators choose to post on a medley of social-media platforms — from the more sex-work-friendly sites like Twitter and Reddit to mainstream platforms like TikTok and Instagram — to get their names out there and entice potential subscribers.

OnlyFans creators may use multiple platforms to promote themselves, but each creator usually focuses on a few where most of their followers and subscribers come from. They master those sites and learned how to work them to reach as many people as possible.

These strategies can include scheduling posts, doing promotional shoutouts, collaborating with other creators, and experimenting with content that’s popular on their chosen platforms, from audio and photos to short- and long-form videos. Some creators show off other interests like cooking and sports.

Anne, an adult-content creator who traverses her home country of Canada in a van, uses Reddit to engage her community by being diligent with responding to comments on her posts.

« I love the community on there, and I make sure I respond to every single person I can who comments on a post that I’ve done, » she told Insider. « I make sure to show them that I appreciate that they’ve seen my content and that they’re important to my day. »

Here are seven ways OnlyFans creators promote themselves:

1. Twitter

Twitter drove 75% of social media traffic to OnlyFans in the US in the last year, according to data from April 2023 that web-analytics firm SimilarWeb shared with Insider. Many OnlyFans creators are active on the platform because Twitter’s guidelines allow for nudity and pornographic content, with some exceptions.

2. TikTok

At a glance, TikTok isn’t the ideal platform for OnlyFans creators due to its strict content guidelines that bar nudity and « sexually explicit narratives. » But some OnlyFans stars prefer to promote on TikTok because its algorithm allows them to easily find audiences that could become subscribers.

« Anyone can grow a fan base on TikTok, and I like that algorithm the best, » OnlyFans creator Charlotte Lavish told Insider.

Navigating the platform without getting banned can be tricky for OnlyFans creators, some of who have said they’ve faced harassment on the site, but several who use TikTok heavily said the platform can be a great promotional tool if you know how to work it.

3. Reddit

Reddit can be intimidating because of its communities of subreddits that each have their own rules, but several OnlyFans creators that learned to navigate it say it’s where the majority of their subscribers come from.

Farrah, an adult-content creator who makes content without her face showing, posts in eight to 10 subreddits daily, including styled as r/milf, r/fitnakedgirls, and r/Impressive_Apricot37, which she runs.

4. Promoting discreetly by using safe-for-work content

OnlyFans creators often adapt their promotional content for each social-media platform’s content guidelines. It allows them to reach mainstream audiences while discreetly promoting their OnlyFans pages.

For example, MelRose Michaels, a creator who earns roughly $30,000 per month on OnlyFans and coaches adult-content creators on how to grow their businesses, creates safe-for-work content like ASMR videos on YouTube or livestreams on Twitch to plug her OnlyFans.

She recommends adult-content creators run their social accounts as any mainstream influencer would.

5. Cross-promoting with other creators

Lavish, one of the OnlyFans creators who uses TikTok to promote, often features other OnlyFans stars in her TikToks. They do dance challenges or lip sync over popular sounds together. This is just one of the ways OnlyFans influencers can cross promote.

Some creators even pay others for « shoutouts » on their pages. Oftentimes, the creator being paid has a larger following and can reach more people, and some of these creators have turned shoutouts into a business in itself.

6. Making content specific to personal interests

Some adult-content creators incorporate their mainstream interests like fitness and cooking into their content. Michaels, the adult-content creator coach, said this is a great way to bring creative or new ideas into OnlyFans content as well.

Influencer Chloe Sasha, for instance, has been experimenting with different TikTok pages where she chats about sports, cooks Mexican recipes, teaches Spanish, and more. The strategy has helped her reach about 161,500 followers on her main TikTok account and 239,000 followers on Instagram. She also modifies some of these videos for her OnlyFans audience, such as filming similar videos in the nude.
