Some creators have built a tip menu that details the content and interactions they’re offering and how much each costs. Again, OnlyFans takes 20% of the earnings creators bring in and offer this advice on earning money on the platform: “Your earning forecast really depends on the quality and quantity of the content you upload. The more you post, the more incentive there is for your fans to subscribe (and remain subscribed) to your profile.”
Get Paid for OnlyFans Referrals
OnlyFans also offers a referral program in which those who refer a creator to the platform can earn 5% of the referred creator’s earnings for the first 12 months up to the first $1 million earned by the referred creator. There are no limitations to the number of referred creators or total referral earnings. Referrals are paid out monthly on the first business day of the month.
The referral program used to payout 5% of the referred creator’s earnings for life but with the platform’s popularity, referrals are now being limited to the year following signup, up to the first $1 million earned by the referred creator. Some creators have taken to creating and supporting a petition to push OnlyFans to reinstate the old system, especially since many sex workers are relying on the OnlyFans platform for their income. When you consider that OnlyFans already takes 20% off the top of creator earnings, this isn’t really an unfair expectation.
Subscription-based social media
Subscription-based social media is an emerging money-making opportunity for technical and creative entrepreneurs. In a subscription-based social media platform, users pay for and subscribe to receive and utilize a specific product or service for a certain period of time.
Even though subscription-based models are more common and popular off the Internet (like gym memberships, newspaper subscriptions, and streaming favorite shows on Netflix and Hulu), the popularity is growing every day for many online businesses.
