You may know already, but OnlyFans is currently one of the fastest growing social media outlets.

Therefore, it’s vital that you know how to promote OnlyFans on Snapchat and other channels to gain more fans. 

You can’t just post and wait for other users to see your content. You must be active about marketing and promoting your OnlyFans to build and grow.

Then, you must be proactive to maintain and keep your momentum going and your popularity up.

There are numerous places online to promote your OnlyFans, but we’re going to focus on using Snapchat for purposes of this guide.

How to Promote OnlyFans on Snapchat Guide

Before we discuss how to use Snapchat to promote your OnlyFans page and content, we will describe Snapchat.

If you have a Snapchat account, you may or may not know what we are about to share with you.

If you don’t have a Snapchat account, you may want to give it a go after reading this. 

What is Snapchat?

Snapchat Influencers

Snapchat is described as a multimedia mobile app used to send videos or pictures, called “Snaps” via iOS or Android smartphones.

Snaps are known to disappear once they are viewed. 

As the name implies, Snapchat has a “chat” feature that works much like the WhatsApp instant messenger.

Again, chats disappear once they are viewed/read, which is the main difference between Snapchat messages and WhatsApp messages. 

However, you can go to your Snapchat settings and set them to disappear after 24 hours instead of after being opened.

You can also save your Chats by tapping once on the message.

The user and the intended party to the message can delete chats by tapping twice. So, be advised not to get tap happy if you intend to save your chats.

Time limits on Snaps can also be changed to an infinite loop. Choosing this setting also lets you save them in the Chat screen.

Keep in mind that the whole point of Snaps and Snapchat is for messages and Snaps to disappear.

Note: You may see publications use Snapchat to distribute specific content such as image-rich stories and short-form articles.

This is one of the ways you can also use to promote your OnlyFans, but we’ll discuss that soon.

Who are Snapchat users?

Snapchat users are 13 years old and older, but Snapchat is used by teens more than young adults or adults. In fact, 69% of its users in the United States are teenagers.

However, this app is also popular among millennials and younger, but very few above that age group. 

Note: SnapKidz is no longer available on Snapchat, so you must be at least 13 to use the app. You will need to provide your date of birth when signing up.

Since this app is designed for quickly disappearing content, people think that it’s used often for adult content.

After all, users can share Not safe for work (NSFW) content without thought to the fact that it can be saved and shown to others. 

Note: Snapchat isn’t used very much for adult content or porn, but there are a few that do use it that way.

Since this is a small group on the app, it can give you more targeted leverage when you are promoting your OnlyFans on Snapchat. 

Most of the content shared on Snapchat is about pets, vacation photos (lots of them), and selfies (expect lots of these).

Consequently, Snapchat is considered safe to use anywhere and everywhere. 

Now that you have the essential scoop for Snapchat, we can discuss how you can promote your OnlyFans on the app.

How to Use Snapchat as a Marketing Tool for OnlyFans Promotion

How to Promote OnlyFans

The first thing you should know is that Snapchat offers an audience of more than 380 million daily active users (DAU).

Roughly 38% of these users are from the United States. It’s certainly great for marketing and promoting content, including OnlyFans. 

Note: The average Snapchat user spends 30 minutes on the platform, which is considerably longer than TikTok’s 12 minutes, though you can also use TikTok for OnlyFans promotion.

But, that’s for another guide.

It might surprise you to know that Snapchat has several features that make marketing on the app efficient and effective.

Here are a few of the features you can use to promote your OnlyFans to gain more fans. 


Spotlight is a short-form, TikTok-like vertical video that you can share on the platform once you have your account set up.

If you already have Snapchat, this feature will be available to you now. It’s being heavily promoted on the platform.

Also, making sure your profile is public will help you promote your OnlyFans better.

The easiest way to describe Spotlight is to use it like you would when you create a TikTok video.

You should create a couple of these Spotlights each day to grow your viewers and followers on Snapchat. 

Note: When using Snapchat, you can use your Linktree link in your bio like you would on your other social channels.

In this instance, remember to add your OnlyFans page link to Linktree. 

Friend Requests

As you might already suspect, you need to add friends on Snapchat if you expect people to see your content and your OnlyFans link in your bio.

It’s recommended to initially send out 500 friend requests. The chances you will get about 80% of them to friend you back is high. 

Note: Once you have friends on Snapchat, you can create regular and consistent stories and send them to your new friends.

Again, this is a one-time, disappearing story that can be viewed one time only.

Snapchat Map

Using Snapchat Map allows people from all over the globe to find you.

Keep in mind that those who find you will be random people, but they will find your stories through Snap Map. 

Note: You can add text to convince people to follow you on Snapchat using Snap Map. This is an organic way to promote your OnlyFans on Snapchat.

Use Snapchat to Prove You’re Real

If you have used Instagram or Reddit, users may think you are not real. They expect people to be fake on those platforms.

However, with Snapchat you can prove you’re a real person because that’s what its users expect. It provides better social proof.

In fact, some users on Instagram or Reddit may reach out and ask for Snapchat usernames to check on a person’s identity.

Additionally, you can send a Snapchat story to send to them as proof that you’re a real person.

Engage with Your Snapchat Followers

It should be understood, but you need to engage/interact with your followers on Snapchat. It’s the same over all your social accounts.

One of the things users do is to rename the people in their circle or their friends based on the money they give you.

It’s an effective way to start making even more money beyond OnlyFans. 


  • Johnny – Reddit friend
  • Cecilia – OF Basic Sub (subscribes, but doesn’t tip or buy extra stuff)
  • Patty – OF Premium Sub (subscriber, frequent tipper, buys a lot/everything)
  • David – OF VIP Sub (subscriber who sends a lot of money)

These are just a few examples and ideas for renaming your followers/fans/friends for OnlyFans.

Using Snapchat as an Asset


When you’re in it to earn income, you’re essentially operating a business. It may be fun, but it’s still business.

Therefore, you should use your Snapchat as an asset, using it as an OnlyFans “menu item”.  Snapchat is an asset if you know how to promote your OnlyFans on it correctly.

One example of this is to only allow Snapchat users who provide tips to be added to your Snapchat circle. 

Snapchat will be more tolerant about adult-related content if you keep things less sexual on your Spotlight videos.

You can send teaser content via DM on Snapchat since they disappear once they are viewed, but we recommend caution about too much adult content on the platform for obvious reasons.

You can save that for them on OnlyFans.


As a reminder, there are a lot of minors using Snapchat, so take care not to engage them with unsavory content.

Use respect and ethics to engage on the Snapchat platform when you are promoting OnlyFans on this app. 

Avoid targeting minors and stay in your lane on Snapchat and you shouldn’t have any problems using it as an OnlyFans promotional tool.

Add this social media app to your list of social apps to your marketing strategy. It’s free.

You can see from this guide that there are many ways to promote your OnlyFans without any problems.

Much of your content is “disappearing” content, so there’s little concern for it being NSFW.

One of the best features of Snapchat is the vanishing content, which is a great factor for promoting OnlyFans. 

Your profile, Snap map, interaction, friending, and using spotlight are all features that can safely and effectively be used to promote your OnlyFans.

Just keep in mind that minors use Snapchat, but otherwise this app can be used to promote your OnlyFans page just like you can throughout social media channels.
