Thinking about starting a fan-subscription channel?
If you’re thinking about starting a fan-subscription channel, there’s a few things to think about. Let’s get into it.
What are fan-subscription channels?
It’s a bit like a YouTube channel. You create and post video content and people can subscribe to your channel.
You can use fan-subscription channels for all kinds of things, but we’re talking about this in the context of gay porn.
So, you create some video content, post it to your fan-subscription channel, then the people who are subscribed to your channel can see it. People pay to subscribe to your channel so they can see the content you’re posting. That’s how you make the money – from those subscriptions.
What are the fan-subscription channel options?
When it comes to fan-subscription channels where you can post explicit content – gay porn – you’ve got two main options to choose from. There’s OnlyFans or JustFor.Fans.
OnlyFans was first to market and is the bigger player. They seem to be happy to take the money from gay porn content creators, but they don’t want to publicly associate themselves with the adult entertainment industry.
JustFor.Fans is a smaller operator but built and operated by people who are passionate about gay porn and keen to support the industry. Commission fees that JustFor.Fans take are generally higher with OnlyFans.
While there are some advantages to focusing all of your content and attention on to one platform, you can post the same content to both OnlyFans and JustFor.Fans.
What sort of content should I create for my fan-subscription channel?
As long as it’s legal, you can pretty much create any sort of content you want. But you need to be thinking about what your potential subscribers want to watch and what they will be willing to subscribe to.
You don’t have to show your face, but you’ll generally get better results if you do. It can just be solo action, but that can get a bit repetitive after a while.
From our extensive research, the most successful fan-subscription guys – who aren’t porn stars – are able to let their personality shine through on their videos, build a connection with their audience, and showcase having sexy fun in interesting places.
How do I get people to subscribe to my channel?
This is the big question. There’s also a question around how you keep people subscribed and don’t lose them from your subscriber list.
Here’s some suggestions:
- Create quality content that will appeal to your existing subscribers and your target subscribers?
- Post regularly and consistently.
- Use collaborations with other content creators to help expand your reach.
- Use social media to promote your content and your channel.
Can I create a fan-subscription channel but remain anonymous?
You can try.
Technically, the content you post to your fan-subscription channel is only available to people who have subscribed to your channel. But this is the internet. Things that you would prefer to remain hidden have a tendency to emerge at inconvenient times.
You can wear a cool mask and hide your face and change your name and all of that, but if you’re posting explicit content onto a fan-subscription site then you pretty much have to assume that people will find out about it.
That’s probably not a big deal anyway, but just be prepared that it’s going to happen.
