This might not be as revolutionary as the first iPhone, but it’s the first growth hacking guide for an OnlyFans account that I’m aware of! So if you’re serious about growing an OnlyFans account then this guide is for you. 

Step 1: Create an OnlyFans Account

First, you need to create an OnlyFans account. Since I’m about to spill the secret sauce to growing your OnlyFans account, the best way to thank me is to use the referral code to join. You can also link an existing account to the new one you create. So show me some love?

Step 2: Conduct a basic SWOT Analysis 

Before getting too deep into this It’s important to understand who you’re targeting. Like any other creator on the internet, you need to know who your target audience is. A Youtuber who’s in the luxury car review niche shouldn’t be making content on the latest Apple products. It’s exactly the same with OnlyFans. If you’re 38 with brunette hair you won’t have much success targeting people looking for blonde 18-year-olds. 

You may not even know how to target the right people either. So you need to audit yourself using the SWOT analysis. The SWOT analysis will uncover the features about you that your potential audience will be attracted to.

So here’s a really simple example.

– Short
– Red hair
– Very nervous 
– Don’t like showing your face
– Have lots of costumes
– Game often
– Unemployed (spare time)
– Not that common, might not be a large enough niche 
– Have an old phone so content won’t be as high quality
as other creators

Now that you have a basic SWOT analysis you’re able to get a clearer picture of the type of ‘niches’ you fall into. It’s likely you’ll fall into a couple. Only pick one for Step 3.

Step 3: Create Reddit Accounts

In order for this strategy to work you need to create 2-3 Reddit accounts with different email addresses and names. The reason you need more than one is that it’s easy to get banned for not complying with the subreddit rules. An example of this would include posting content in a brunette subreddit if you have red hair. The moderators won’t tolerate it. Spamming is another obvious one.

You should never have one growth channel to rely on. However, if this is your only avenue for growth it’s best to make 3-4 Reddit accounts and slowly age them.

If you already have an account then you can start using this for the next steps.

Step 4: Conduct a basic SubReddit Analysis 

Reddit is a goldmine for generating customers and building a strong fan base. It’s also a great way to stay anonymous if you prefer to do this on the side without anyone knowing.

We’re going to use two specific Reddit tools to identify the opportunities in our niche. The first is a Github tool by Anvaka. We know that our strength includes having red hair and being short. After some digging, an NSFW subreddit called r/redheads has appeared. 

The GitHub tool will scrape and analyse Reddit so we don’t need to waste hours finding relevant subreddits to become active in.

Go to the tool and enter the subreddit you think best suits your strengths. Start with ‘redheads’ to uncover more.

All the related subreddits will appear in a spider diagram. This will show you which other subreddits all the users in r/redheads are also engaging in. You can use this to uncover other opportunities you wouldn’t have known about otherwise.

Click on the ‘redheads’ subreddit as an example and sort by the top content over the past year to see what’s most successful. If you’re new to Reddit a ‘successful’ post usually has the most amount of upvotes and comments. The more you go through the top pieces of content the more familiar you’ll become with top-performing posts.

This post has 4,300 upvotes and 44 comments. Imagine converting 1% of the upvotes into paying subscribers. That’s 43 new subscribers from a single successful post. Let’s do some quick math. 

Assume your subscription price is $15/m.

1% conversion rate on 4,300 upvotes is 43 subscribers.

$15/m x 43 subscribers = $645p/m.

…from one post! Imagine repeating this another 10 times.

Step 5: Optimize your Reddit profile for OnlyFans subscribers

We’re going to use the strengths and opportunities listed in Step 1 to build an optimized bio. This could look something like the following:

“My name is [Name]. I’m [strengths] and I like to [opportunities]. DM me on OnlyFans, I promise to reply ;). No meet ups. All my links are in my pinned posts [random emoji].”

See below for an example:

Having your own subreddit is similar to having an email list that you can constantly target and engage with. 

When you first start posting you probably don’t need a dedicated subreddit to yourself but if you do end up getting kicked or banned from other subreddits you still want somewhere to host your content. It’s more of an insurance policy.

Step 6: Verify your accounts 

Verification posts can carry a lot of weight. If the moderators of a subreddit give you a verification badge you’ll look more legitimate, especially to people paying money for access to your OnlyFans. It may even prevent you from being banned if you forget to follow the rules.

To do this post a photo holding a piece of paper with your username. The moderators should verify this for you. Otherwise, read the subreddit rules and follow their specific guidelines. They may be different.

If you have different accounts you’re trying to be active on don’t post the exact same photo…

Step 7: Optimising your content

To optimise the content keywords we can go to our second tool called subredditstats to find out which keywords are used most frequently.

Go to subredditstats and type in /redheads. Scroll down to top keywords and you’ll find some inspiration on what the posts should be captioned.

Your posts need to be high quality. It’s as simple as that. No one is going to pay you a premium for blurry or low-effort photos/videos. So just remember the better the content the more money you’ll make.
