Only Fans has quickly become an outstanding platform for people – both regular people and celebrities – to earn extra money sitting at home. It is a subscription-based digital service where content creators charge their subscribers or ”fans” to access the photos and videos they make available.
Because we are talking about a phenomenon that has grown very quickly, let’s see what it means to ”work” on Only Fans and what would be the risks you are subject to. Our studio specialists have created a list of the pros and cons of Only fans content.
Only Fans Pros and Cons
Flexibility – You can dedicate as much time as you want. If you like this work and have experience in social media, you can start managing all aspects of your ”business” yourself;
Work from home – You don’t need an office space to start your business. You can do it all from the comfort of your own home, at least in the beginning;
Website Traffic – An Onlyfans account gives people a reason to visit your website and keep coming back to you;
Workload Control – Once you start an Onlyfans account, you have the freedom to choose how little or how much you want to work. You also have the freedom to decide which projects you want to work on, and you can decline the ones that don’t interest you.
Competition – Competition is high when it comes to the exclusive fan business, so it is important to spend a good amount of time analyzing the market and understanding where the demand is;
Lack of benefits – With an Onlyfans business, you are usually independent and responsible for finding your own insurance, which can be quite expensive and time consuming;
Isolation – Often, as an Onlyfans account holder, you usually work alone and don’t have much face-to-face interaction with other team members;
Fees – If you have an Onlyfans account you usually pay freelance fees which can be quite high. It is important to understand that you will pay taxes every year;
No Safety Net – With an Onlyfans account you don’t get a consistent pay check, instead you earn money based on transactions each month. During slow periods, you usually earn less because the job is commission-based;
Easy target for criticism – Since Onlyfans has the ability to reach a large audience, you will need to be able to handle criticism. The internet can be a cruel place, and regardless of your intentions, many people will disagree with you and even take criticism too far.
Differences between being a video chat model and being a content creator on OnlyFans
We know that OnlyFans is still a taboo topic in Romania and still not exploited to its true potential, because no matter how tempting the earnings are, you have to give up privacy and work only with Romanians.
In addition, you have to deal with the promotion of the account, and if you are not lucky enough to have numbers on social media, you have to start from scratch, risking having your Instagram account closed because you will probably violate their terms by promoting your account by Onlyfans in stories.
Then, you have to produce your content, and then monetize it, choosing the wrong monetization strategy most of the time because you don’t have exact benchmarks. And when you finally reach some earnings of 1000-2000 euros per month, you can be judged by your choice to make money, no matter how committed you are.
