It is worth noting that if you are creating an account and only make adult content and perform then your success will be very unlikely. The most important factor in your ability to grow subs and build on Onlyfans really comes down to how effective you are at marketing yourself. Building on other social media platforms is a must if you want to become a top creator and make Onlyfans a primary source of income.
Your odds of a positive result will increase dramatically if you already have a following on Instagram, Snapchat, Tiktok, or Twitter. The ability to promote to an existing audience will often result in a small few willing to pay money for more intimate material. Onlyfans also makes getting to know your favorite performers easy and allows influencers to set their own pricing and even charge for sending and receiving direct messages. It is worth noting that a large portion of earnings for men on Onlyfans comes from live cam shows. If this is something you are not comfortable with or have no interest in pursuing then Onlyfans might not be the platform for you.

How Much Can Guys Actually Make on Onlyfans?
According to our research, a male on Onlyfans who is actively producing exclusive content will make an average of $80 dollars per month. This is just shy of short of half the amount of money the average girl makes. A great deal of this is due to the platform’s demographics with most of the fans being male themselves.
While there is a growing demand for LGBTQ performers, straight models who are aiming to gain female fans will have a difficult time on the platform. Most of the top male talent promote to multiple markets including gay and bisexual demographics. Content creators who focus on explicit content on a regular basis also have higher odds of success.
