Make Money on Fansly

By Sharon JonesPublished 4 months ago 6 min read

Unless you have lived under a rock for the past few years (especially during the COVID-19 outbreak), you certainly would have heard about OnlyFans.

For obvious reasons, and that's why you landed up on this blog.

Similarly, Fansly is a subscription-based platform allowing content creators to monetize their exclusive content to earn a living. This blog is a detailed guide on how to make money on Fansly and make a good side income or even replace your full-time job.

What is Fansly, and how different is it from OnlyFans?

First things first, you need to have a grip on Fansly if your goal is to make money on Fansly. Fansly aimed primarily to be an adult content exclusive subscription platform where creators can sell adult content and generate revenue just like OnlyFans.

The commission structure of Fansly is similar to that of OnlyFans, where the platform deducts 20% commission and allows you to keep the remaining 80% of your revenue.

The differentiating factor when coming to Fansly Vs. OnlyFans is the subscription tier.

For example, you can allow subscribers to follow them for free, giving them access to selfies and censored content. Most models on Fansly charge between $5 and $15 monthly for their premium paid tier.

One con of Fansly is that it allows users to pay only using a credit card. Without additional payment options like Crypto, Fansly is susceptible to disruptions if Mastercard or Visa demands to stay away from the platform like they did for Pornhub.

How to make money on Fansly?

Now coming to the significant part of this blog- making money on Fansly.

If you think you can make money by selling subscriptions or pay-per-view content, think again. Not only can you generate revenue from subscriptions and PPV content, but you can also ask for tips too. You can request tips from your subscribers regularly. Users can send you tips through private messages.

Use social media to promote (the best way)

Use the shoutout opportunities and collaborate with other creators

If your goal is to learn how to get subscribers on Fansly, shoutouts are a great way to increase your subscriber base. Simply message models who post content under the same hashtags. Choose the ones that have the same number of follower base to them. Hire an account manager to DM, comment, and even follow users who are your target audience if your budget allows.

Invest in shoutouts

You would have seen Instagram shoutouts even if you are new to shoutouts to promote your Fansly. Instagram shoutouts are excellent when it comes to promoting your Fansly account; you can try them on other platforms like Twitter and even on Fansly.

If your content is great, shoutouts from big pages can help you get started to build your follower base.

Content is key

One of the main reasons why it becomes difficult for creators to grow their Fansly account is the low-quality content that could be more engaging. It might be low lighting, not a good angle, etc., etc.

Your images and videos don't have to look 4k. When it comes to being successful on Fansly, you need to get the angle right and decent lighting, and you will be able to take this quite far.

Beyond that, just practice and look for what other creators are posting and imitate the content yourself.

Subscription price matters

If you are looking for how to make money on Fansly, your subscription rate significantly determines how much you can make on the platform.

Regarding subscription price, you can decide whether to offer a subscription price to lock individual posts behind a paywall. Sometimes this works great when you are just starting out on Fansly.

For example, if someone buys your subscription priced at $10 per month, you will get that alone if a user subscribes. But if the same user buys 5 posts at $3 each, you earn $15.

Granted, not everyone will purchase the content from your feed as you wish, but eventually, they will. You just have to keep posting, promoting, and being yourself in front of your target audience.


Growing your Fansly account and making money takes a lot of time. If you are serious about making money on Fansly, prepare a content plan with highly engaging content to convert your audience to paying audience.

This is a great way to generate a revenue stream aside from what you are earning through other channels. You can be an adult content creator or influencer, but it never hurts to boost your income with Fansly.
