Couples maximize earnings and content variety on OnlyFans through collaborative ventures, detailed setup, and strategic promotion.

Why do OnlyFans as a couple?

Most creators on OnlyFans are solo women, but couple accounts have spiked in popularity lately. Couples on OnlyFans have some major benefits.

  • Good market. There's a huge audience of users on OnlyFans who want to see couples being intimate, especially in amateur style. There's good money to be made here if you can capitalize on this kink with the right promotion strategy - and you'll learn exactly how in this guide.
  • You run an online business with your partner. Running an OnlyFans isn't as easy as it looks from the outside. Between shooting content, editing, scheduling uploads, selling PPV, interacting with fans, and promoting yourself, things can get incredibly hectic. The extra helping hand counts.
  • Never gets boring. You get access to more niches and unlock different types of content. Being solo limits the type of content you can produce, and your timeline can end up looking kind of bland. With a partner, there's always something new, fun, and exciting to try.

How to start an OnlyFans with your partner

The account creation process is slightly different when starting an OnlyFans with your partner. There are a few ways you can go about this.

  1. During the verification process, OnlyFans asks you to upload a picture of you holding your ID. To get verified as a couple, upload a picture that shows both you and your partner holding your IDs.

  2. You and your partner both create your own accounts. You'll use your account to post content. But you'll tag your partner in your posts so OnlyFans can verify both your identities.
  3. You create an account, and your partner signs and uploads a release form. The release form is only there to confirm to OnlyFans that your partner is above 18 and has agreed to be included in your content.

If you already have your own verified account and want to bring your partner on board with you, they can either create an account so you can tag it on your posts, or they can upload a release form - whichever is more convenient.

As an alternative to creating a couple OnlyFans, you and your partner can also just create your own accounts. As an alternative to creating a couple OnlyFans, you and your partner can also just create your own accounts.

Once you're done with verification and adding your payment details, you'll set up your profile.

  • Choose your profile and banner image. Be sexy and inviting, but don't show full-on nudity.
  • Come up with a username and display name. Names that are memorable and easy to spell are better for long-term branding. Use our free name generator for the best OnlyFans couple name ideas.
  • Write your profile bio. Your goal with this is to convert visitors from social media to subscribers. Understand what goes into developing an effective OnlyFans bio with ideas and examples.
  • Write your welcome message. It's the first thing your followers see after purchasing your subscription, so make it warm and not too salesy.

How to make money as a couple on OnlyFans

Here's how to make a successful OnlyFans as a couple, broken down into 8 simple steps.

Niche down

Making money on OnlyFans as a couple starts here. Defining your niche helps you produce better content, attract an audience, and compete in saturated environments.

Sit down with your partner and have a lengthy discussion on what content you want to produce.

The good news is that you have no shortage of options with a couple OnlyFans. You can do everything solo creators do, and a lot more.

Some of the best couples OnlyFans ideas right now are:

  • Amateur porn. Start out with something basic like bedroom sex, and spice things up as you go.
  • The swinger lifestyle. Swapping and sharing partners, basically. If you're open to it, this niche has a lot of opportunities for collaboration with other creators.
  • Exercise and fitness. Steamy workout sessions with the right camera angles are highly sought after on OnlyFans.
  • Vlogging and behind-the-scenes content. More hardcore NSFW will make you more money, but adding some diversity with laid-back vlogs will be beneficial in the long run.
  • Audio recordings. Audio-only content leaves more to the imagination. Take your subs on a wild ride with gentle whispers and soft moans. If you have a good external mic, maybe even try your hand at erotic ASMR.

Start with a free page

You can start with either a free or a paid page. There are pros and cons to both.

Most creators go with a paid page without considering the alternative. But starting with a free page can be the better strategy in some cases, and especially when you have no social media following to kickstart your couple OnlyFans.

Free pages attract more subs, so you have an easier time building an initial following and gaining traction - which is what most new creators struggle with.

And don't worry about being stuck with a free page forever.

Couples on OnlyFans can have up to three pages. Couples on OnlyFans can have up to three pages.

OnlyFans' help center confirms that you can have more than one page at a time.

Once you have a sizeable audience, you can launch a paid page with spicier content and gradually funnel existing subs there or monetize your free page with PPV content.

Plan your uploads

You can't really sell a monthly subscription without content on your page, so when you start out, you want to upload multiple times a day. You should have a decent amount of material on your timeline within a few days, at which point you can start promoting yourself to attract subs.

As you fill in your page with content, you can start uploading less frequently. One upload daily is a good standard to meet.

Top creators shoot content in batches and then plan out uploads across the coming weeks. It's more efficient and frees up time for other activities.

Focus on content quality

Producing crisp, high-quality shots like the top creators do isn't as complicated or expensive as you might think.

Shoot in 1080p or above. If you're just starting out or on a budget, your smartphone will do. Especially if it's one of the latest iPhones. But if you have the budget, get a proper camera.

Also, get a ring light. It's arguably the most impactful upgrade you can make to your setup. If you're shooting in a poorly lit bedroom (like many creators initially do), you'll notice a big improvement in quality. And so will your subs.

A tripod or gimbal can come in handy too.

Interact with your fans

Growing your income on OnlyFans really comes down to two things:

  1. Getting new subs. Aggressive promotion on social media is the name of the game here.
  2. Getting existing subs to stay. This is just as important. You don't want to be in a nasty tug of war, where you're losing subs as fast as you're getting new ones.

To keep your subs around month after month, you need to build genuine relationships with them. And you do that with constant interaction and engagement.

  • Ask questions in your post captions and titles. This will get conversations going in the comments.
  • Participate in the comments. Interact with your commenters. Get their feedback and opinions.
  • Conduct polls and surveys. Make them relevant and interesting to your audience. Otherwise, they'll just come off as annoying. You can also use this data to make content aligned with their desires.
  • Talk to your subs in DMs. Try not to use mass messages too often. Send personalized messages to at least your top spenders.
  • Go live. Hold Q&A sessions. Get close and personal with your subs.

Get more PPV sales

Creators who aren't selling PPV content on OnlyFans are missing out big time. The top creators make more from PPV sales than they do from monthly subs. If you have a paid page, your goal should be to do the same eventually.

You can get more PPV sales by

  • Keeping your best content for PPV purposes. Don't post it on your wall.
  • Using trailers and teasers to promote major PPV drops and build hype.
  • Learning how to sext and talk dirty with subs. DMs are where you'll sell most of your PPV content. But you can't be too direct, or else your subs will catch on. Be subtle; guide subs from one purchase to the next.
  • Using a tip menu. Grab one of our free premade templates and take a few minutes to customize it before pinning it to your profile. Offer extras and specials like private video calls and custom content.

Collaborate with other creators

Collaborating with other couples and creators is a pretty popular trend among OnlyFans couples. Not only do you get some great content (which you can sell as PPV for a good amount of money), but you also expose yourself to the other party's audience for some free publicity. It's a win-win.

Find other couples in your niche, ideally ones who have collaborated before, and reach out to them on social media to see if they're interested.

Promote yourself on social media

Your success on OnlyFans depends on how well you promote yourself outside the platform.

You can't just set up your profile and wait for subs to come to you. You have to actively go out and get them.

There's plenty of social platforms creators use for promotion. But for couples with OnlyFans, Reddit is a great choice.

It has thousands of NSFW-friendly subreddits, many centered around amateur content from couples and swingers. These communities are the perfect places for you to discreetly promote yourself. They have your target audience.

All you have to do is take teasers and previews from your OnlyFans content and post them to Reddit. Interested users will check out your profile and follow the link to your OnlyFans. You'll get traffic and subs.

While it's very effective, self-promotion on Reddit can be time-consuming and tedious. But it doesn't have to be.

With Social Rise, you can automate the entire process by scheduling your Reddit posts. It saves you precious time and effort that you can use to focus on other parts of your business.
