Wow, it’s just all about OnlyFans now, isn’t it? This thing isn’t even all that old, but it’s been a total game-changer for adult models already.
That’s because when you promote it right, your OnlyFans account can generate so much revenue each month for the kind of work that people in this industry are doing anyway that it’s a perfect supplement to the income of a cam girl, porn tube model, or similar careers. Some girls even make their living entirely off of OnlyFans, though personally I think you’re leaving money on the table if you do that. Camming + OnlyFans is a deadly effective combination, in my view.
But much like it is with the rest of the industry, succeeding on OnlyFans doesn’t just happen. In fact, lots of new girls come to the platform thinking it’s going to be something at least like easy money, and they end up getting frustrated and quitting early when they make pocket change. I’ll give them credit for their ambition, but definitely not for giving up so easily.

What they’re missing is the fact that nobody gets big ON OnlyFans. You have to have a following of a decent size coming with you if you expect to see the big bucks. So, there’s the bad news. But there’s good news, too, and it’s that building the following you need is only a matter of promoting your OnlyFans account in a smart and effective way.
Not on OnlyFans itself, but by using other forms of social media to connect with well-established adult models. Once you’ve done that, you can arrange “shout for shouts”, or s4s, with them, in which they’ll tell their follower about you if you do the same for them. Stick with me, here, and I’ll explain how to promote your OnlyFans account.
Twitter For OnlyFans Promotion
The first promotion method I want to talk about is Twitter, because it’s best of them all. Others are important, too, especially when some of them make Twitter work better for this (keep reading; I’ll explain), but the foundation of how to promote your OnlyFans account is the Bird. The platform is adult-friendly, one of the only remaining forms of social media that still is, and OnlyFans integrates great with it. It’s okay if you’re totally new and have no Twitter followers either, though. We’ll build them up.
Building a largish Twitter is one of the best ways to get more eyes on your OnlyFans profile. It’s probably the single best social media platform for this purpose.
When starting out as an OnlyFans model on Twitter, the first thing you want to do is search for some sex worker retweet groups. If you sit there and search for just a few minutes, you’ll find lots of adult models who are interested in doing retweet deals with you. Follow them, as many as you can, and retweet them. If you’ve got no followers of your own or very few, just focus on getting these girls on your list. Search out other models, too, and do the same.
Try to focus on those who are well-established with a nice big fan base, but not absolutely gargantuan in size. This is because most models will happily refollow and retweet a new girl in the business, but the top players get so many new followers every day that they probably won’t even notice you.
Promoting OnlyFans on Your Instagram Account
Do this hard, as in adding one or two hundred new follows each week. As the models you follow hit you back, some of their followers will become yours as well. You need to work at this, but if you do, it’s a quick way to amass a huge number of followers. Then you can start doing shout exchanges with all your new friends and really explode.
Reddit OnlyFans Promotion
Another good place for promoting your OnlyFans account is Reddit. Certain subreddits (this what the individual groups there are called) will allow OF promotions, so long as you aren’t overly obnoxious/aggressive about it. Before posting to a subreddit, it’s always a good idea to learn the rules there, and take care to follow them.
Never post just a link to your OnlyFans account or nothing but a quick plug. Contribute something meaningful and valuable (like a free pic or video) to the subreddit, then include the fact that you’re an OF model and invite readers to check you out. A lot of models don’t like using free content as “bait” to lure in new customers, but I just think that’s really short-sighted. When somebody new gets into you, they’re most often going to want to see much more than just a few pics.
Reddit is a great place to find high-quality fans for your OnlyFans account. If you promote your stuff carefully and intelligently, you can bring in some really good new people this way.
In fact, the REAL money in this business is made from long-term regulars who stick with you for a while and do much more than just consume your content. They will often drop huge tips on you for no reason other than to support you and your goals. Seriously, you definitely want these kinds of fans, but if you’re not attracting enough new people, developing these kinds of regulars will be very slow-going.
As for specific subreddits to post in, just head on over to Google and search for “onlyfans promotion reddit” and similar terms. You’ll find several options to get started with. Remember, obey all of the subreddit’s rules and don’t post too heavily. Observe the group(s) for a while first to get a sense of how regularly most models post, and follow that example.
Promoting Your OnlyFans on Chaturbate
Okay, so all of those platforms are great, and you should invest time using each of them for OnlyFans promotion. But I’ve saved the best for last, here, because there’s a bit of a “hack” in the online adult industry right now that can allow you to build up OF fans while still earning money. And that’s to work as a webcam model on Chaturbate.
When you think about it, it all fits together perfectly. Chaturbate is a massive webcam site, probably the best for newbie cam girls with little to no experience, and it has a huge proportion of wealthy members from the more economically advantaged parts of the world, like North America and Europe. You yourself can start making at least decent money there in a couple of weeks, if not a few days, and while you’re pulling down that revenue, you can use your Chaturbate channel to promote your OnlyFans account.

Now, you DO have to be careful about how to promote your OnlyFans account here. Chaturbate doesn’t allow OF promotions on their site, so if you just post a direct link in your chat room or on your profile page, you’re gonna be in violation of terms. That would really suck, because you can do so well on Chaturbate, so it’s important to do it the right way.
Remember when I said that Twitter was the foundation of your OnlyFans promotion? This is half of the reason why (the other half is that Twitter is such an effective promo tool on its own). You’re going to direct your Chaturbate viewers not to your OnlyFans account, but to your presence on Twitter. All you need to do is occasionally post the link to your Twitter in your public chat and invite the audience to check you out there (making sure to mention you post hot stuff there).
Promoting your OnlyFans account is mostly about building up your Twitter, because that’s the best platform from which you can get people interested. Camming at Chaturbate is a great way to build your Twitter. You will need a laptop, though.
Don’t overdo this, but do mention that it’s totally free. See, cam site viewers have this thing where they absolutely adore anything that’s free – I mean, even more than most people already do. Just make it clear that you put hot content on your Twitter for free, and it’s a good way to keep track of your camming schedule..
You can see where this is going, I’m sure. On Twitter, which loves OnlyFans and has no problem with you promoting it, you’ll post your OF link and ask your followers to have a glance. So, traffic comes into your room on Chaturbate, you direct some of it to your Twitter account, and from there, they eventually hop on over to OnlyFans. Hello, new fans!

Just make sure to dress up your Twitter feed with lots of tease pics and videos – remember, Twitter allows all that stuff (but don’t put any nudity or explicit shots in either your header image, or your avatar). Make the guys want to see more, then let them know where they can. This strategy works pretty well to grow a successful OnlyFans account, and it can happen a lot quicker than you might think. The key is to KEEP AT IT and DO NOT QUIT!!
