Snapchat Vs.OnlyFans – The Differences and How to Promote for More Subs

OnlyFans is a subscription-based platform enabling content creators to profit from their fans through monetization. The platform is quite popular with adult content creators and comes with many exciting features as well. Although you can find/upload content from almost every niche, the highest percentage of fans here consume adult content.

Snapchat premium, on the other hand, isn’t a subscription-based platform like OnlyFans, though users can provide premium content for a fee. The user thus decides how much he/she will charge for their content and who can view or access it. Users can thus restrict their account settings to only allow specific viewers to see/watch their content. Content creators on Snapchat thus need to find potential clients. This article expounds more on the differences and similarities between the two.

How Does Snapchat Premium Work?

Snapchat premium is more like a privacy setting that limits the user content’s visibility to other users but a select few or ‘subscribers.’ That said, there’s no official Snapchat website or app you can download on your phone. Snapchat premium is, in most instances, used for sexting and adult content. This means fans/subscribers must pay a set amount to access and enjoy the content (one-time or monthly). Many celebrities and upcoming content creators use this feature to make money and a name for themselves. All they need to do is identify their target market and produce content for the same. The content creator thus needs to market their profile and content to gain a following and views.

Are Premium Snapchat Accounts Pure Porn?

According to research, the majority of content published on Snapchat premium accounts is adult-oriented. These account users mostly focus on adult content and sexting compared to other content genres. That said, you are more likely to find adult content on these accounts than you would find health and wellness content, for example. Some users may, however, produce useful content on their premium accounts as well. It is thus safe to say that you can find almost any content you want on Snapchat premium. Statistics also show that most of these content creators will, at some point, create adult-related content (e.g., a nude, sex video, etc.) for a fee.

How Do You Get Paid on Snapchat Premium?

While you might know this already, Snapchat doesn’t have an official premium service. That said, ‘Snapchat premium’ content creators have to find a way for their clients to pay for the services rendered. The content creator may use a mobile money wallet or other payment services to receive payments.

Is There a Snapchat Premium Alternative

FriendsOnly is an excellent alternative for Snapchat premium. It allows content creators to create TikTok-style videos and make money from them. Users thus have to subscribe to access the content. The platform also enables content creators to communicate with their subscribers, sell PPVs, and even promote their content on the platform. It is one of the best platforms adult content creators can use to make money and boost exposure.

b. Snapchat stories: This is a wall that makes it possible for users to post stories for their followers to see. These stories have a lifespan of 24 hours.

c. Consume content by others: Snapchat provides a unique, fast, and exclusive way to share content with almost anyone. These can be friends, brands, or even celebrities. It thus provides a safe space for everyone to post whatever they like for their target audience:

A scarce commodity has a higher demand than a readily available one. Offering limited discounts and coupons can see thousands of people flocking to your Snapchat in a rush to get one. This strategy will also be more effective when shared on Snapchat stories, where snaps disappear after 24 hours or once watched. Creating a sense of urgency can thus help.

Run a challenge

Facebook contests have been around for some time and are slowly becoming cliché. This is because all followers can do, is share or like your post, with nothing more they can do to participate. Snapchat includes a built-in sharing option that lets fans get creative and do much more in content. Running a contest would thus be an excellent way to engage fans, with only the best earning a reward. The best thing with contests/challenges is that thousands of fans/users can participate. It is also easy for the challenge to start trending on Snapchat and other networking platforms.

How To Run a Successful Contest on Snapchat

  1. Build your follower base by promoting your Snapchat profile on other social platforms. The more audiences you can get, the better your chances of getting many participants.
  2. Ensure the contest is fun and attractive: You want to be creative enough to reach the right target audience. If targeting millennials or Gen Zs, you need to ask them to engage in something they’d love. Consider hiring an influencer or a well-known artist to spice things up.
  3. Turn up the volume: Make the contest known on every social media platform. If possible, run campaigns on all platforms you can think of, especially those more likely to be used by your target audience. If many people can see the campaigns and talk about them, there’s a good chance many will participate.
  4. Launch and announce on all socials: Advertise the launch on all socials as you did with promotions. Launching the contest live will also create an avenue for even more audiences to want to participate in the thrill.
  5. Hire an influencer: Many businesses and brands use influencers and celebrities for marketing their products/services and brands. Collaborating with a social media influencer is one of the best ways to get your product or Instagram account, in this case, known to many people. These influencers have a huge following that you can tap to, to earn more followers.
  6. Show glimpses of behind the Scenes: Snapchat, unlike Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and Facebook, allows for capturing of moments in real-time. Such can be appealing to many viewers, especially those that enjoy watching something come to life. The best thing about behind-the-scenes videos is that you never have to worry about video and graphics content. Anyone looking to see a crispier image can wait until the official clip is uploaded or shared.
  7. Offer tips and tutorials: Although all you may wish is to run a professional Snapchat account, experts recommend letting lose once in a while and letting your audience get a glimpse. One of the best and recommended ways to appreciate your followers is to offer tips and tutorials on various things, especially what you are really good at. Sharing quick how-to videos on how to use a particular product and tips on making it more effective will go a long way in wooing more followers. Many companies offer tips and tricks, especially on their products and services, and help on other technical stuff (but in their line of work) as well. Sharing what you know with your audience is selfless, shows you do indeed care and can help boost your ratings and following.#
