how to promote onlyfans without social media

If you want to learn how to promote OnlyFans without social media – you’re in the right place. (If you’re happy to use social media platforms read how to promote OnlyFans. )

The are two main ways to promote OnlyFans without social media: One is to leverage the OnlyFans platform itself. And the other one is to promote yourself in specific OnlyFans Searchers so the audience that is already consuming OnlyFans content can access to your profile.

Think about it…

OnlyFans has millions and millions of users who are willing to pay for premium content… after all, they ARE on OnlyFans already. All you have to do is get your profile in front of their eyes and you’ve got a chance that they subscribe to you.

The more eyes you get to your profile the more subscribers you can get.

For the first way, you can do this two things:

  1. OnlyFans shoutouts
  2. Private social media

Of course, this are the hardest method as it requires a lot of time investing, even once you already understand the mechanism.

For the second way, the promotion, is much easier but only works if you know the right places where to promote yourself… avoiding money wasting for nothing! 

Of course, we will go into detail with both ways!

How to promote onlyfans without social media - the hard way

Let’s look at the first way to leverage the OnlyFans platform to promote your OnlyFans without social media. We will find two methods here: OnlyFans ShoutOuts and Private Social Media.

OnlyFans Shoutouts

A S4S (Shoutout For Shoutout) means you and another OnlyFans model post each other’s pictures and OnlyFans link on your own page – so that both your subscribers see each other.

This way you can both get exposure – without posting on social media.


Find other models for both S4S and paid shoutouts. Here are some to find models:

  • Find S4S groups on Reddit, Telegram, Twitter and so on.
  • Here is a Telegram group where you can participate in S4S with other models.
  • You can also reach out to free OnlyFans accounts and request a S4S or a paid shoutout.

If you want to avoid groups and reaching out on social media platforms -you can instead find popular and free OnlyFans pages in your niche. 

You can reach out to these pages and ask if they do Shoutout For Shoutout (S4S) or if they offer a paid shoutout service. 

Why free pages? You can message free accounts once you’ve subscribed to them, which is free to do. 

A good option if you have the money is PAID shoutouts from pages that have huge amounts of followers and thus enable you to grow your page FAST.

This is also the best option for complete beginners as S4S services and models usually want you to have a decent number of followers first, understandably. 

You should only pay for a shoutout if the page has 2,000+ followers.

If you don’t have any money to promote your page the next best option is to request S4S from accounts with 1-5,000 followers.

Using Social media - but more privately

Have you considered – why is it that you don’t want to promote OnlyFans on social media?

99% of the time it’s because models want to remain anonymous – especially to their friends and family.

However, I know from experience that if you create a new online identity for OnlyFans – the chances of anyone from your real-life finding your content online is about the same as if you only promote on OnlyFans (with Shoutouts) and don’t promote on social media at all.

It’s also completely possible to make money on OnlyFans without showing your face.

Your new online identity would have completely new private social media accounts…separate from your personal life.

(It’s our view that if you want to be an OnlyFans success then at some point, someone from your real life will find your content – and we think you should confront that upfront, before starting your OnlyFans career. One option is to promote on social media but never show your face on there or on OnlyFans – again this makes it harder to succeed but you stay 99.9% anonymous by not showing your face. )

Making new private social media accounts

If you use social media, you still want to keep that business away from your “real-life” social media.

This is why you should create a ‘stage name’, a new email address, and new (private) social media accounts on all the popular platforms:

It’s best to have the same username (your “stage name”) on all platforms if possible.

Each platform has different requirements for their username and certain usernames are already taken.

Use to check the availability of a username on multiple platforms at the same time (except Snapchat & Reddit, you gotta check those yourself).

*** To keep a new email account (and any new phone number) separate from your private life – DO NOT sync your phone or email contacts when prompted to do so ***

Some other tips you should consider when creating your new online persona:

  • Don’t use your real name
  • Use a brand new email address
  • Block your close friends and family
  • If possible get another mobile phone, with a different SIM card on it.

For more tips and details on creating a new online identity check out our comprehensive guide – “Creating Your New OnlyFans Online Identity”.


Another great way to increase your privacy is to use the ‘Geoblocking’ feature of OnlyFans.

With this feature, you can block entire countries from being able to access your OnlyFans account. If you’re from the United States… you may want to avoid this feature as the USA is the biggest market in the world for OnlyFans subs. But if you’re from… say… New Zealand! Then it might be wise to block all of New Zealand from your OnlyFans – that means your friends, family, and anyone from New Zealand can’t access your OnlyFans page, even if they find it.

To use Geoblocking:

  • Go to the settings 
  • Security 
  • IP and Geoblocking 

Now just choose the countries you want to block and hit save.

Is Geoblocking 100% effective?

Now, it’s true that a sneaky person could use a VPN to get around the geo block – but they’d have to be pretty determined to access your page.


The reality is that as OnlyFans has been around for many years, many companies have been able to build on this platform. There are many search engines such as google that are exclusive to adult content creators. The good thing about these sites is that they all already have their audiences and active consumers. That is, they have their own traffic, and all you have to do is make your profile visible on these platforms so that the audience can find you organically.

Most of the sites usually charge to appear on them or to position you first in the searches, but here we will leave you a completely free option so you can promote your OnlyFans profile.

Promote your OnlyFans Profile by organic buying traffic

If you don’t want to promote your profile on OnlyFans then you can’t expect your fans to be people who already know you. You should look for people who want to buy your content even though you are anonymous for them. 

The best for this case is to buy traffic that allows your profile to be shown to people that are interested in your niche. So, they will start following you not because of you (in the first moment), but because of you as a creator of the niche they are interested in.

In the previous paragraph, we presented you the example of sites like CreatorTraffic. Honestly, there are more sites that sell traffic, but CreatorTraffic is the only one where you just pay for the clicks that are made. In other words, you don’t pre-pay any kind of minimum and you can pause/activate your campaign anytime you want. 

Use your traffic with wisdom. Is not just about investing a huge amount of money and waiting for a miracle. You should do research and investigate your niche first to see which are the perfect keywords and tags that describe better your OnlyFans profile. This way, all the traffic you buy will be correctly redirected to the audience you are looking for, and they will turn into subscribers easily.

Yes, there are multiple ways to remain anonymous on OnlyFans. The most full-proof way is to be a faceless OnlyFans creator. However, this does make it more difficult to attract new subscribers. You can compromise by keeping your social media faceless and only showing your face on paid OnlyFans content. This way a lot fewer people will have a chance to discover your identity. 

You can start an OnlyFans with no followers. It just means that your first few weeks and months will be slower than someone starting with followers. If you post consistently you can quickly become successful as an OnlyFans creator even starting with no followers.

How much you make on OnlyFans depends on how much money you make from subscriptions and also how much you earn from Pay Per View content. If you were starting with say 5,000 followers on social media converting 3% of them to paying subscribers would be a good conversion rate. At a fairly cheap $4.99 subscription price this would net $750/month in subscriptions. However, smart creators earn only 20% or less of their total via subscriptions. The real money is in PPV content. So this creator could expect to earn around $3750 with subscriptions and PPV content.

YES, you can make money on OnlyFans without showing your face. It’s probably going to be harder than if you did show your face. However, certain niches do well without showing their face: Fit girls, Gym Bunnies, Big or small ass/bust/other private areas, Muslim/Arab. We have seen MANY models in these niches do consistently well at making money on OnlyFans without showing their faces.
