What was your career before OnlyFans?
My career before switching to this was in the medical marijuana field.
How much are you making now?
Between $3,000 to $6,000 per month depending on the month, on average, some months less, some months more
Is the bulk of profit from sugar daddies or ‘whales’? Or is it more in the amount of clients, with smaller payments/donations?
It depends…. from what I’ve experienced so far the bulk is tips/subs. It really does depend on the week though it pivots back and forth depending on a few differing factors such as advertising and how much I’ve actually posted for the week.
How many hours a week would you say you work? Curious if its time consuming or laid back?
It’s actually a mix, you have to take time out of every day to take pictures, or go somewhere and do a photo op. It can be extremely time consuming but if you like going outside and taking photos or you like interacting with people it’s nice. I did photography as a side business before I started too, so I enjoy it.
It’s a lot of work, but in comparison to some careers it’s not that much work at all.
Hours a week: Between 20-55 ish
How long did it take you to get to this point? How much effort did you have to put in to build/maintain an audience?
I mean it depends how much effort you put in (and there is a lot of work that goes into it behind the scenes!) some people are successful right at the start and some spend years doing this but their lack of hard work/effort kills their page. I’d say if you’re going to decide to do this then make a plan and make it happen! That being said it took me about a month (maybe a month and a half) learning what angles worked best for me, what backgrounds were complimentary, what lighting my skin agreed with, which of my cameras worked best and where to set them up, which outfits looked cutest, not to mention how to make friends in the community and how to advertise without overstepping certain internet boundaries. Building an audience is hard at first but if you post daily it becomes easier to maintain.
Is there a market for anyone on only fans? Like can literally anyone do it or is it really just for conventionally attractive people
I mean attractive is a subjective term…. but I have seen successful creators of all shapes, sizes, genders, races, styles, kinks, etc and it always makes me happy to see that the positive correlation between effort and success is much more true than the more popular belief that you have to be society’s perfect example of beauty to see any success.
Do the lewd artists make just as much as nude? How do you set your prices? How many followers do you need before you start making decent money?
I’ve seen artists of all types (nude/clothed/kinky/innocent…. etc) make all different kinds of money. I think it has less to do with the category of content and more to do with the quality of the content and how much work you’re willing to put in. The the most successful artists I’ve seen were the ones who had the best lighting, cameras, and angles. Of course you don’t have to have a fancy/expensive setup but I have seen a direct and positive correlation between hours invested and amount of success.
It’s hard to say how to set your prices. I’d say have a look at the site and maybe make a friend there that has been in the bussiness for a while. in my experience almost every girl I have spoken to has been very friendly and helpful.
Also You could make a lot of money if you only had 1 follower or a little if you had many. My best advice is to post daily.
Have you considered what you’ll do after onlyfans dries up? I imagine its a fairly cutthroat field and someone in their 20s will have a easier time at it than when you are in your 30s, 40s etc. I imagine you aren’t likely to retire early, so what will you do with yourself then?
Oh I’m not putting all my eggs in one basket. I’m going to school the whole time im doing this. I realize nothing lasts forever and thats fine. Long term I see myself continuing my scholastic career beyond my current degree and getting into a career in mycology or microbiology
With Onlyfans, do you think it will come to a point where there is an oversaturation of content creators and that it will put people off?
See now I worry about this a lot… when the argument of ‘red ocean/blue ocean’ comes up I know that this type of content is evergreen content but it still scares me because, like you said, there are so many creators coming out under the same platform. Saturation is a real fear for sure. My plan is to pay attention to themes of the site, as far as organic monthly traffic goes, while simultaneously paying attention to the amount of turnover rates in creators monthly.
So if you have a bf/gf do you plan to continue doing this? At what point do you want you want to go back to a private life?
I’m actually already married to my highschool sweet heart! We’re very happy together and he’s supportive in anything I want to do with my life. As far as going back to a private life, I don’t mind either way.
Does your husband take pictures/assist you in recording? Have you drawn a line in the sand as to what would make them uncomfortable?
Yeah he helps sometimes (usually I have a camera stand) although he drives me nuts with the Austin Powers photographer routine B( We haven’t really made any boundaries so far… maybe we will in the future, and that’s just fine, but were pretty open and relaxed with each other.
Can you elaborate on how you two deal with jealously and whatever other elements of your career that would normally be very trying, if not insurmountable, to more traditional type relationships?
I can try to put it into words but honestly, like most things in life, it just comes with experience. We were both very jealous and possessive people when we first started dating. We would assign ridiculous stipulations and boundaries onto each other like ”oh don’t hug that one friend or it’s cheating!” and couples are right to assign boundaries if they’re rational ones. That being said boundaries should be dictated according to the feelings and maturity of the relationship and should be respected by both parties. Since we’ve been through so many terrible and wonderful times together, and we trust each other so much, these types of scenarios don’t phase us anymore. If he said tomorrow that he wanted me to stop I would stop that very second and delete everything without question…. not because I’m ‘too submissive’ or ‘don’t know how to think for myself’ but because I trust him.
In a job like this, there’s clearly a lot of naysayers and negativity compared to other jobs. How do you deal with that?
I’ve had plethora of service industry jobs (as well as a very…. unique childhood) that made me develop very thick skin… especially to the type of people that didn’t get enough attention as children and just say nasty things as a projection of how they actually feel about themselves. I feel for them. They probably need more love than anyone. I mean there are days where I just get tired of seeing so much negativity but then I remember that the most intelligent, emphatic, wholesome, compassionate people are usually the ones that you don’t see very often because they’re usually the quietest… but there are just as many of them as there are negative people. its just the negative ones that are the loudest. I just know that people are inherently good no matter what they say out loud, or what I’ve experienced to the contrary.
