While more difficult to grow through other traditional paths such as Instagram and Twitter there are a few secret tactics to help you generate a following in a tough market. If you’re interested in reading our full guide on how to make money by revealing your face you can read it here. This article will focus on the top methods of making an income while staying completely anonymous.
So what is the big secret Onlyfan models use to make money anonymously?
The best way to make money on Onlyfans without showing your face is to create and promote content on specific subreddits in your niche. By advertising with a selection of images or short videos, you can funnel traffic to your Onlyfans page. This is the most effective way to reach users who have a high intent to subscribe or directly purchase content.
There are two main ways to monetize your account: through subscriptions and tipping.
Subscriptions allow users to become members of an influencer’s fan club by paying a certain amount per month. The more they spend, the higher up the membership ladder they climb. This is a great way for creators to make extra money and over time you’ll be less reliant on other social media sites.
Tipping allows users to give small amounts of money directly to the model/influencer via PayPal. This method works best when the user has already built up a relationship with the influencer. The more well-known you are and legitimate you seem the easier it is to push digital products your audience will buy.
How Much Can You Make on Onlyfans Without Showing Your Face?
Without showing your face on Onlyfans you can expect to earn anywhere from $150 to $3,500 over the first 3 months with consistent effort. How successful you are is ultimately determined by your ability to market yourself on other social media accounts.
While rates vary due to Onlyfans allowing creators to set their pricing for subscriptions and exclusive content there are several examples of performers making $20,000 per month while remaining completely anonymous. The longer you spend on the platform and the more content you make the easier it will be to attract new fans.

How to Make Your First $100:
- Research niches that could make content for.
- Check these niches have a subreddit.
- Order the list of subreddits by members to see which are most popular.
- Take photos and videos for the top subreddits.
- Release 10% of your content for free on the subreddit with a link to your Onlyfans.

Once you gain a following on both Reddit and Onlyfans you can use your audience to build other socials such as Instagram or even Tiktok.

A cold outreach approach where you spam follow other Instagram profiles in the hopes of them following your back is a very common mistake.

Other Ways to Market Your Onlyfans
1. Collaborate With Other Performers
Networking by reaching out to fellow content creators can be a very effective way to reach a broader audience. If a performer already has an established group of fans and you appear in photoshoots or videos with them it can often lead to their fans subbing to you also. While this may be considered a risky way to approach Onlyfans although it is also the most effective. Essentially the more content you have out there the more value you add to potential fans. If you work with other creators on collaborations you can also piggyback on their marketing efforts resulting in an extra funnel to your page with no extra effort.
2. Pay Other Creators to Promote You
Many Onlyfans creators have a large following on Instagram or Twitter. When you are first starting it can be difficult to find an audience and get eyes on your profile. While paying other creators to promote will cost you although you can potentially make more than you spend if you can convert their followers to your own. This is a risky strategy compared to other marketing strategies although it holds a huge amount of potential. The best way to get the most for your money is to contact and negotiate with models who are similar to yourself. Their fans are more likely to convert and follow you if you share a demographic.
How Often Should You Post on Onlyfans?
Onlyfans is a competitive platform so you should be posting content daily. To succeed as a performer that doesn’t show their identity the truth is you will have to put in more work over those that show their face. The ability to also state “posts daily” on your Onlyfans bio is great for converting people who come across your profile into paying subs.
Can You be Successful Without Showing Your Face?
Onlyfans has many content creators that earn 10k per month without showing their face.
That being said, it is extremely difficult for new performers to make money. If you’re not showing your face, then you’re not going to get a lot of purchases. The only way to get the most sales on Onlyfans is to show your face and give people something they can connect with. If you have a following already and you have a good reputation, then you will absolutely make money off of Onlyfans. If you’re new, then it’s going to be very difficult.
There will also be a fair few people that sub to your channel and cancel the subscription fee after one month. There can be a variety of reasons for this although the most common is you don’t see enough value in your content to make an ongoing contribution. It could also be due to your subscription prices. The best way to minimize subs falling off is by being super active on the platform both in the amount you post and in how quickly you respond to direct messages.
