Hey there! I go by the name of “LoveThatRedHair”, and I’m here to give you some top secret information on my personal experience using OnlyFans… and then finding a platform that’s way better!
It’s no lie that, since the start of the pandemic, people have been hustling to make (extra) cash. And sure, online camming sites have been ‘a thing’ for years, but it seems as though a lot of people quickly became really crafty during COVID times, almost overnight.
And with that, came the rise of OnlyFans. People scurried to the platform like ants, with many performers making an unbelievable amount of money. It’s true—sex sells!
And while I’m not here to entirely burst your bubble about OnlyFans and the possibility of making lots of money on the site, I have actually had a much better experience (and seen more cash) using Ulfiltrd. Let me tell you why…
- 1. How did your experience with OnlyFans go?
- 2. What prompted you to switch to Unfiltrd app?
- 3. What were your Unfiltrd strategies for success and making money?
- 4. How does one go about selling their content on Unfiltrd?
- 5. Tell us a little more about the content you create for the app
- And now, a little Q and A to answer all your burning questions:
- 1. Is it possible to hide your account from family and friends?
- 2. Which content works best for a beginner?
- 3. Can you be in a relationship while creating content?
- 4. Do creators receive abuse or unwarranted messages?
- 5. How much time does it take out of your day?
- 6. Let’s be real – how much should you charge?
- 7. What advice do you have for someone thinking of starting?
1. How did your experience with OnlyFans go?
A – I started my OnlyFans in May 2021, and not only did I find it incredibly hard to get discovered and gain followers (with all the competition and all), but also realized that I needed two accounts in order to actually make some money.
One account was totally free, and I used it almost as a ‘marketing’ tool to get found. It had PG stuff, you know the regular cheeky shots that I could also post on my Instagram, nothing too racy. These images and videos were placed behind something called a ‘paywall’ which means that people could pick and choose which content of mine they wanted to unlock. They’d then pay for the specific video or image, giving them access to their chosen media.
My second profile was VIP, which meant that it was subscription-based. People would pay a monthly fee in order to see my content, almost like a base of followers. Truthfully, I used a lot of the same content as my free ‘paywall’ account, but also lots of the real good stuff. Of course, there were a few freebies for my subscribers, but still, I found it hard to get a loyal following or to get my number of subscribers up.
Now I won’t badmouth the setup of OnlyFans. It was relatively easy, but still, after five months, I only had a mere 100 followers and only a few of my videos were actually purchased. Bottom line? The competition is just too high these days for OnlyFans. For that reason, I actually deleted both of my OnlyFan accounts.
2. What prompted you to switch to Unfiltrd app?
A – “Luckily, I was recruited by the owner of Unfiltrd, Stepanka Matto, on Instagram. After careful consideration and a bit of homework, I signed up in October 2021… and it’s been a gamechanger.”
And now that I’ve found a successful platform, and have had the chance to change my strategies a number of times, let me tell you what’s worked the best, enabling me to roll in new subscribers and some extra cash!
3. What were your Unfiltrd strategies for success and making money?
A – This is my Unfiltrd strategy…
I post a photo on my Instagram page, LoveThatRedHair, once a day from Monday to Saturday, with the occasional video reel.
I also add a few stories with links to my Unfiltrd page, but I’m always sure not to show off my nipples (Instagram is pretty strict when it comes to ‘nudity’). Instead, I add two little smiley faces on both nipples, which makes for a perfect preview photo for my Unfiltrd page. Some people prefer to blur out their images, but I like to use smiley faces on my intimate bits so that people can get an actual idea of what I look like.
This ‘smiley’ photo is then locked on Unfiltrd, which means that people can buy the uncensored version of it (aka nipples and whatever else is showing). You see, anyone can follow your Unfiltrd page, but to see the goods, well, then they have to pay.
4. How does one go about selling their content on Unfiltrd?
A – There are two options when it comes to selling your content on Unfiltrd: one, people can buy your images and videos à la carte, or they can choose between different subscription levels. I’ve chosen to have two subscription levels with the first unlocking ALL of my images (goodbye smilies!) and the second, unlocks everything! Yes, indeed, everything! ALL pics and ALL VIDEO. Plus every Friday, I share a VIP pic of my pussy with the tagline “Friday night pussy to make sure you get some this weekend,” with a flirty emoji.
As for the rest of my strategy, I choose to interact with my followers for free. I actually really enjoy meeting my followers, getting to know new people, and finding out what kind of content they’d like to see of me. This can set you apart from content creators that ask followers to pay to interact with them over DM and can give potential followers an incentive to subscribe.
5. Tell us a little more about the content you create for the app
A – Today, my husband and I are having so much fun creating content for my page! We love brainstorming photoshoot ideas, buying and choosing lingerie, and tapping into our more erotic side.
One of my favorite strategies for my photoshoots is to make use of pop culture and things that are currently trending. For example, when the new Batman movie came out, I used a filter that puts a Catwoman mask over my face! You get the idea!
And then, even though I adore Unfiltrd, I’ve also started to branch out a bit more. I’ve found that Unlockd, FanCentro, and LoyalFans are all great sites, and allow you to lock your content behind a paywall.
The point of my story is: getting yourself a nice big audience on various platforms equals more money and more fun! What’s also amazing is that Ginger Vision Adult Toys has now started sponsoring me! Yay for free sex toys! And don’t be afraid to branch out and try new things. I recently started selling my used panties to my fans, they love it!
And now, a little Q and A to answer all your burning questions:
1. Is it possible to hide your account from family and friends?
A – The nice thing about the sites I am signed up with is you can “Geo-Block” any country you don’t want to visit your page. You can even Geo-Block right down to the state or province. My family does not know that I am doing this. And by geo-blocking my profiles, it adds an extra layer of security, ensuring that they never see it.
2. Which content works best for a beginner?
A – Any content you are comfortable making! There is a market for everyone. I am in the categories: busty, curly-haired, fiery redhead, MILF-that-occasionally-wears-glasses. Use your strengths to your advantage and do what you enjoy. Do you have frizzy hair? Love the Sunday PJ vibe? Love to eat sensually, or simply laugh a lot? Go for it! Just remember… If you aren’t having fun it’s going to show. Positivity is attractive.
3. Can you be in a relationship while creating content?
A – Yup! But it’s definitely not for those with jealous partners. If your partner is ok with you showing off your body and sexual talents to the world, and that’s what you want to do—do it! And, of course, if your partner doesn’t mind you getting occasional dick pics from random strangers, then that’s amazing!
4. Do creators receive abuse or unwarranted messages?
A – I personally haven’t come across many abusive or unwarranted messages. Occasionally I get messages like “You need a big cock in your life,” but for me, that isn’t abusive. It all depends on what you deem offensive. I get a lot of guys looking for freebies, sending messages like “Show me your tits”. My response? “Sure! Go to my page and subscribe! It’s all there, baby!”. On the flip side, there is a slew of nice guys that are sweet and complimentary, and they outweigh the not-so-nice guys by far. And at the end of the day, It’s these guys that will be rewarded with freebies!
5. How much time does it take out of your day?
A – As much time as I want. Honestly, you are going to get out of it what you put in. I personally spend at least an hour or two working on my profiles each day. Time is spent editing and uploading images/videos, researching creative ideas, taking a peek at the competition to see what’s working for them, and engaging with followers. It takes time to grow your following, it takes time to create and develop ideas, and it takes time to edit and submit good content. Success is not overnight.
6. Let’s be real – how much should you charge?
A – There are lots of creators out there who are under charging for their content. I know my value, I know what I am worth, so I charge more than what a lot of other creators do. I have found that this attracts a different kind of audience. Less “show me your tits” and more polite and friendly.
7. What advice do you have for someone thinking of starting?
A – Take all the insecurities you have about your body, and the inhibitions that hold you back, and throw them away! Using these kinds of platforms means having every part of you scrutinized by tens of thousands of people. Remind yourself how beautiful and special you are every time you post a new photo or video because that is what people want to see—your confidence and your sensuality. Your fans will be mesmerised and will come back every day to see what you post next. What makes you special is that you know you are special.
So, are you ready to ditch OnlyFans and get onto a different platform that’s not as competitive to make the big bucks and have fun doing it? I am sure you are! Go get ‘em, tiger!
