How to Post Videos on Onlyfans

Social media platform Onlyfans has grown a creator base of nearly half a million influencers in the four years since it was founded, and this number is increasing by the day. More and more “fans” are signing on to the site and subscribing to a range of content that appeals to them. Account users can access free content on the site or pay a creator-determined rate to access more exclusive content. 

When it comes to posting on Onlyfans, creators can share their adult content, travel vlogs, fashion content, and more as photo, video, and audio uploads to their feed. Posting videos on Onlyfans couldn’t be a simpler process, and it’s important to remember that with the resources you have available now, you can begin building a fanbase for your page. 

New influencers on the platform often feel pressured to purchase expensive new recording equipment to ensure quality in content, but keep in mind that creators have built successful platforms without breaking the bank. A video recorded on a smartphone has the potential to reach just as many people as a video recorded on a Nikon or Canon camera––and in most cases, fans are drawn to content that is raw and authentic rather than highly curated.

Becoming an Onlyfans Creator

The process of creating an Onlyfans account is straightforward and takes a matter of seconds. An email address, password, and profile name later, and you’re well on your way. 

The next steps are where influencers can really start making creative decisions and building their platform from the ground up. As an Onlyfans creator, your profile page is your prospective fans’ first line of contact with you, so invest some time and thought in your About section. Subscribers will appreciate that you’re transparent about who you are and what type of content you create. If you feel inclined, you can also link your Amazon Wishlist to your account.

If you’re unsure about what personal information to include, browse the site to see what other creators with similar content are sharing about themselves. Some basic-level investigating can also give you an idea of how other creators price their monthly fee. These rates may range from $4.99 to $49.99 on a case-by-case basis.  

The platform is designed so that content creators have complete autonomy over their page. From choosing a subscription rate (or opting for a free account) to deciding what content to share, Onlyfans creators can do so on their own terms. There is not one certain mold for creating a successful page, so field the options and decide what works best for you. 

It’s common for influencers with an established following on YouTube, Instagram, or another social media platform to start an Onlyfans account. The conversion of followers to Onlyfans subscribers can be slow right out of the gate, but with the right approach and marketing know-how, influencers can expand their reach and monetize their content effectively. 

For novice and professional influencers alike, solo social media scheduling and marketing on multiple platforms can be daunting. Even with the plethora of social media management tools available, these methods are impersonal and offer structure for organizing content without the helpful marketing knowledge that will take your accounts to the next level. 

This is where enlisting guidance from Unruly Agency comes in. Unruly Agency is a creative marketing agency that takes the pressure off of social media marketing. The team follows the client’s lead, connecting a client with brands that make sense and using company resources to elevate a client’s platform. From small-scale to large-scale photoshoots and productions, the agency specializes in promoting you as the content creator.

Brands and influencers interested in partnering with Unruly Agency can begin the process on the agency’s website. By filling out some personal information and social media engagement statistics, you can connect with the agency and begin the process of boosting your platform. 

The Basics

When it comes to posting a video on Onlyfans, there are a couple of different routes creators can take to share their content and make money at the same time. Influencers on this platform are able to turn a profit whether they choose to start out with a free account or premium account. As an Onlyfans creator, your content is free content unless you 1) set a monthly subscription price and register your bank account information or 2) place price locks on your content. 

With a free account, your fan base can access your new content just like they would on any other social media platform. The content is not exclusive per se, but a free (or mostly free) page may help new influencers with a smaller following build up a fanbase. Because of the site’s tipping feature, a creator who chooses not to put price locks on content could still earn money through their page. 

Fans on free or subscription-based accounts can send tips through posts, live streams, and private messages. Tipping has become a common way for subscribers to show their support for creators and also give creators an idea of what content fans will respond positively to in the future. 

As a content creator looking to generate more tips, you might consider creating a list of services you will provide individual fans for a given price. Creating a list can simplify the process and let fans know that you are open to producing commissioned work. If you receive multiple requests for the same service over a period of time, consider placing this service on your Tip List or clarifying that you’re not open to this type of service.

In addition to tipping, creators with a free account may decide to place price locks on videos and other content. With this feature, fans are able to view a blurred preview of the photo or video and access the content through a paywall. This fee, like any other, is yours to price. 

Many content creators find success with a balance of free and price-locked content. A successful strategy for building your fan base might be to have two Onlyfans accounts––one that can be accessed for free or nearly free and another that can be accessed for a monthly rate. Free content, whether in short or full supply, can be a great way to attract subscribers and draw your fan base to your exclusive videos and content. 

If you’re considering posting a video with a price-lock, you should first know that accounts with a monthly subscription fee can’t access this feature. Instead, creators can post PPV or pay-per-view content. Similar to creating and advertising a Tip List, Onlyfans creators have the ability to label videos as PPV and send content to individual fans or the entire fan base. Fans aren’t obligated to pay for this content, but giving fans the option to access exclusive content creates more opportunities for earning a profit and engaging with subscribers. 

Onlyfans Video Features

Uploading video content on Onlyfans is one of many ways to engage with your fan base. Creators can post video, photo, and audio to their feed by locating the “Create New Posts” option on the website. Here, you’ll be able to attach media or create a poll for your fans. 

By uploading video content on a regular basis, creators are able to attract and retain new subscribers. Consistency has a lot of sway in influencer success on this platform, especially in the case of subscription-based accounts. Fans invest time and money in quality content and will continue to invest in creators who have an active Onlyfans presence. 

The site’s video features extend beyond feed posts. Taking advantage of the different sources for video sharing can be significantly beneficial for creators and subscribers alike.  

1. Go Live

Onlyfans offers a Go Live feature that gives creators the option to reach their fans through live streams. Creators and fans value the streaming option because this gives both parties the opportunity to connect in real-time. The same goes for live streaming as it does for video equipment: fans respond positively to content that feels authentic rather than staged and heavily manicured. 

Planning for a live stream can be beneficial to you as the creator but isn’t necessary. When it comes to live streams, the primary focus should be engaging with your fan base. A great way to involve your subscribers in your live stream is to send out a poll a few days ahead of time. In this poll, you might prompt your fans to see what type of content they’d like to see included in the Go Live.  

When scheduling a Go Live, creators should consider any differences in subscribers’ time zones. To optimize your viewers’ experience, select a time when the majority of your fan base can view the live stream. If you have an international reach––try as you might––this will be more difficult to do. After the live stream airs, you will have the option to post the Go Live content to your feed, so those subscribers who were unable to tune in will be able to watch the video.

Not only do creators have the option to live stream, they can also co-stream with another creator. Co-streaming is a great way for both creators to get exposure on Onlyfans and accumulate new subscribers. For new creators striving to grow their fan base and make more money, finding a fellow influencer who is willing to work together can be an excellent way of promoting your platform. 

2. Stories

This platform has a story feature that can be found on other social media sites as well. Stories with photo or video content are only available to subscribers for a limited time unless the content is saved to the highlight reel on your Onlyfans profile. Uploading a story to your page is a simple way to show fans that you’re active on the platform.

3.Promotional Videos

Advertising your Onlyfans account to prospective fans is a top priority when building your platform. Creating a promotional video and pinning it on your profile can leave new subscribers with a positive and informed impression of your work. Redundancy is redeemable here because once again, transparency and authenticity are important building blocks for your platform.  

As you create and share more content through your feed, you can design new promotional videos that update subscribers with more of your best moments. 

4. Promote Your Videos Through Other Social Media

On the topic of advertising your work, it might be worth considering how you can expand your outreach through other social media platforms. There is an option on Onlyfans.com for creators to sync Twitter with their account. When you post a new video, you’re able to generate more public attention by sharing the post (or a link to the post) as a tweet. 

Video Content

The kind of content you produce and sell as an Onlyfans influencer depends on your niche. Onlyfans is a marketplace where fans can find an array of unique and diverse content creators, and therein lies the beauty of the platform. There is a high demand for a multitude of services that subscribers can find on Onlyfans. 

The platform is home to content creators of all kinds and talents. Influencers in the adult industry, fitness industry, and more have success and earn a profit by posting content about their given specialties: 

The Travel Vlogger

Subscribers are looking to invest in experiences. Travel is not always a logistical or financially feasible option for subscribers, so an Onlyfans travel vlogger can provide an alternative form of travel to followers through video content. Travel bloggers and vloggers are constantly producing new material that followers can actively engage with. 

Secondhand travel can be achieved with a variety of video content on Onlyfans:

  1. Pack With Me Vlogs

  2. Van Life Vlogs

  3. Travel Day Vlogs

  4. Destination Hotels and Locations

  5. National and International Travel

  6. Travel Goal (Visiting 100 New Countries, Backpacking Solo, etc.)

  7. Go Live (Q&A, etc.)

The Fitness Aficionado

Influencers with a background in YouTube are often able to thrive on the Onlyfans platform because a built-in viewership on one platform can quickly turn into an exclusive fan group on Onlyfans. For a fitness content creator, an Onlyfans account is health and strength-focused. Whether through subscription rates, PPVs, price locks, or tipping, fitness influencers can monetize their skillset and promote healthy living to dedicated subscribers. 

In the Onlyfans fitness niche, you might post videos about these topics and more:

  1. Workout Routines

  2. Meal Plans

  3. Health Journeys

  4. What I Eat In A Day Vlogs

  5. Go Live (Exercises, etc.)

  6. Q&A 

The Adult Performer

Because the platform offers a space for creators to post unfiltered and uncensored content, creators within the adult industry have found success on Onlyfans. The appeal for many influencers is that creators can upload explicit content featuring lingerie, nudity, and sex on their own terms.

As an adult performer on Onlyfans, you might post videos of this nature:

  1. Sex Content

  2. Lingerie Try-On Hauls

  3. Special Requests Through Private Messaging

  4. Go Live (Solo and Collaborations)

  5. Cam Girl Content

  6. Promotional Videos

  7. Q&A

The Fashion Blogger

Subscribers with an appreciation for fashion across borderlines and cultures will invest in an Onlyfans creator they admire. YouTubers, models, and other influencers with a foot in the fashion industry are aspirational figures to followers. From clothing hauls to behind the scenes footage of a fashion show, Onlyfans creators in this niche can develop a strong fan base through sharing their experiences and interests. Fashion-focused content for Onlyfans might include:

  1. Clothing Hauls

  2. Thrift Flip Videos

  3. Closet Walkthrough

  4. Go Live (New York Fashion Show, etc.)

  5. Environmentally Conscious Clothing

  6. Brand Recommendations

  7. Exclusive Fashion Sale

  8. Get Ready With Me Vlog

  9. Outfit of the Day Selfie (OOTD)

  10. Q&A

The Artist

Subscribers with an aptitude or admiration for creative expression and art will naturally gravitate to artists’ Onlyfans accounts. Starting an Onlyfans page can be beneficial on many levels for an artist looking to build their platform and share their work. New and established artists can engage with fans and offer a multitude of services such as Go Live art lessons, art auctions, and sneak peek video content.

Content that might flourish on the page of an Onlyfans artist could include

  1. Gallery Walkthroughs

  2. Sneak Peaks

  3. Go Live (Leading an Art Lesson, etc.)

  4. Exclusive Art Sale

  5. Artist Collaborations

  6. A Day in the Life of an Artist Vlog

  7. Art Auction

  8. Q&A

Video Content that Counts

Creating successful video content on Onlyfans begins with knowing your niche and creating engaging content that will appeal to your growing fan base. Investing in high-end camera equipment and technology can be rewarding for improving the quality of your visuals, but this is not a necessary purchase, especially for new content creators building up their platform. It would be far more beneficial for influencers looking to elevate their social media platforms to consider strategizing and partnering with Unruly Agency.

Determining which account type works for you is an important precursor to sharing your content, but remember that you can always update your account settings as you go. Regard yourself as the entrepreneur that you are and strive continually to produce video content that captivates your subscriber base in new ways.
