This post will go over several reasons why you may want to create and run a free-to-see OnlyFans account, the features they come with, and whether or not you can monetize them.
Reasons to Create a Free OnlyFans Account
There are several good reasons to create a free OnlyFans account, though the decision will need to be based on your total marketing strategy and how much time that you have to create content. A few of the best reasons are listed below:
1. No Funnels
If you don’t have a strong social media presence, it may be a good idea to start off with a free OnlyFans account and create a premium one at a later date. It is difficult to convince people to subscribe to you if they don’t know what you are about or what content you have to offer. While you should still continue to grow outside socials to funnel into your OnlyFans, using a free account is a good way to find your initial audience.
2. Promoting Paid Page
Many creators have chosen to have 2 OnlyFans accounts, one of which is free. As they are easier to grow, they use their free account to get to know people and to show sneak-peaks of what people could expect to see if they sub to their main account. It frequently works as a good marketing strategy, though you do have to do twice the work at times.
3. Audience Focused
If it is more important to you to grow an audience than it is to earn money from them, a free account is the best way. As it doesn’t cost them anything, many people will follow you just to see what you are all about. You can also use this as a strategy to funnel into another platform in the future.
4. Can Still Make Money
You can still earn money with a free OnlyFans account through tips and PPV messages. In fact, some creators have found that they have made more on free accounts due to having a larger, appreciative following compared to their paid accounts. It all comes down to your marketing and how often you post.
Free Account Features
Not only can you make money from tips, but there are also two monetization features that are only available on free Onlyfans accounts:
1. Paid Posts
You can monetize specific posts by putting them behind a paywall. You are able to set the price you want. It is a good idea to give a brief idea of what the content
2. Paid Stream
You can live stream on your free account and charge an entrance fee. Before each fan can join, they will need to pay the price you pre-selected. You must set the price to at least $5. It is good to clearly state when the stream will end so that people won’t get upset if they pay for the last few minutes without knowing.
While people will pay subscriptions for paid Onlyfans accounts, most are still willing to pay tips as long as you post good content and engage with them frequently. You can even use a tips menu to charge for special products and services that you market through your account and even through your social media accounts.
Can You Make Money With a Free OnlyFans Account?
While you can definitely make money with a free OnlyFans account, you will have to remember that you won’t get any “regular” income from monthly subscriptions. You will likely be able to get a larger following on it and some will support you by purchasing your PPV content.
Many influencers with free OnlyFans pages make good money by remembering to post frequently, alternating between free and PPV content. You have to remember that OnlyFans is considered by many to be more of a social platform and many fans expect to hear from the creators through messages. You will need to figure out a strategy to prioritize people who are financially supporting you while also not burning yourself out.
You are allowed to have two Onlyfans accounts, which means that you can use your free page to help promote the one that takes a monthly subscription. Many creators are able to covert long-time free fans to new subscribers on the paid account.
