The internet has come a long way from where it started.
No one would have thought one day they would be getting paid by uploading content online and this is precisely why the world is moving towards a “creators economy” - giving more power to free and independent creators rather than the traditional corporations and other giants.
Onlyfans and Fansly both are wonderful places if you are a content creator and especially one who is focused on creating adult content. The platforms have allowed adult content creators to sell their content despite not having to work in the adult film industry and likewise has allowed the viewers to connect more “deeply” with those whose work they like.
However, if you are just starting or want to learn which medium is best for you, this article is certainly here to guide you through that. I will talk about both the platforms and their differences.
So let’s get into it.
What is Onlyfans?
Every Netizen has heard of Onlyfans. It has become quite popular, especially after the COVID-19 led pandemic. While not aimed at being an “adult” content creator’s site, however, that is what most people know about it.
Onlyfans allow the content creators to earn money from users who subscribe to their content who are labelled as “fans.” Depending upon how much a creator wants to charge for their content, they can do so and thus earn money from it where a small fee is kept by the platform. This way, the platform ensures the verification of every user and gives the users the freedom to choose who they want to follow and pay for their content.
While Onlyfans never advertised itself as an adult website, the truth is, this is what most people know about Onlyfans it’s an adult creator’s platform.
What is fansly?
Fansly is also a free and subscription-based social media platform similar to that of Onlyfans but it is designed to host adult content.
It was founded in 2020 and since has grown in popularity, especially by adult content creators. Initially, the platform did struggle, especially when it entered at a time when the world was seeing a pandemic, and Onlyfans had already established a market. However, after the August of 2021, Fansly has become popular and so far has seen more than 2.4 million users which makes it as popular as that Onlyfans.
There is not much information about Michael Etelis, the founder of fansly, apart from him being already registered over eight different companies based in Maryland and Texas majority of them are associated with online media. Therefore with Fansly, Etelis knows the niche he has entered and aims to grow it to extended heights.
Fansly vs Onlyfans: the main differences between the two platforms
On the grassroots level, both of the platforms are quite similar and there appears not to be much difference between the two. However, when you look closely, you start to find some differences that set both of them apart. At least slightly.
These differences include:
Fansly allows the subscribers to follow a creator for some time until they start to pay them. This is the reason why Fansly creators have an advantage over Onlyfans as they are bound to get more subscribers who can choose on whether to continue or not depending upon how long the creator set their “trial” period.
Another great advantage of Fansly is that the site provides the feature to look for or find new creators. Unlike Onlyfans, where the search bar is of no use and you can only interact with the content creators the Onlyfans wants you to. On Fansly, you get a search bar where you can search for the creators from a specific niche. If you have good SEO in your profile, then chances are you will certainly be noticed by more people on Fansly than on Onlyfans.
Fansly also allows you to put multiple prices on different kinds of content that you as a creator put. Oftentimes, creators give their selfies and soft material for free whereas charging for their exclusive adult content which the platform calls “subscription tiers.” This way, slowly and steadily many subscribers start to pay for the exclusive content.
Fansly referral program is also creative and effective. Creators can use an affiliate code to bring more users to their exclusive adult content profile and the website. If the creator purchases other subscriptions through the referral code, the creator who invited them on the platform earns 1% of whatever they purchase for the next 90 days. It’s a win-win for Fansly and the content creator(s). Onlyfans does not have any such kind of referral program where the creator can earn more instead just by putting up their content.
Fansly does not let you sell items such as your heels, socks, or panties. On Onlyfans, you can sell your “used” items which are often bought for thousands of dollars; depending upon how popular you are among your followers. If you even try selling any worn item, Fansly will make you check with the support beforehand to make sure there is no violation of any sort of rules.
What made Fansly popular?
While there is no doubt, there are certainly visible differences between the two websites. However, the main difference came when Onlyfans August 2021 announced that it will ban “adult” content from its website. While it did not proceed with that, it did make many adult creators question if they would want to continue with Onlyfans or not since their earnings can be compromised if Onlyfans once again decides to change their minds.
As a result, this is why many adult creators started to move towards Fansly since it is a platform that is designed to be for adult content and therefore there will always be adult content on the platform for as long as it lives.
How much can you make on Fansly and Onlyfans?
Similar to that of Onlyfans, Fansly also takes 20% fees from whatever you make. Apart from this, 80% goes directly to the creator. The platform has announced that some of the top creators are able to make over $10,000 a month. Beyond this, the platform has not announced what kind of specific niche do these creators come from; if they follow a certain kink or do cosplay. No one is sure for certain.
Thus, which tells that making big money on Fansly is certainly possible by being creative and exploring different areas which people like. As the platform is growing in both its numbers and size, there is a chance you will be able to make more money in the near future.
However, for any creator, the key to making more money on Fansly is through the help of more subscribers. You will need to have more paid subscribers who will pay you more money for the content you put up. Therefore, having a solid profile is a must and of course, the content needs to be attractive.
On the other hand, creators are able to earn over $100,000 every month which is a big difference from Fansly and does not come close but as Onlyfans has been successful to build a market of its own, Fansly is catching up and soon will be able to if not compete, come closer.
