How to promote OnlyFans -without existing social media

Reading Time: 5 minutes

If you want to promote your OnlyFans anonymously or without any social media at all, this article should help you out.

Can you succeed on OnlyFans without social media promotion?

The answer is “Yes..BUT”.

The first “but” is that it will be much harder to promote your OnlyFans if you do not promote your page on multiple social media platforms.

If you don’t want to promote on social media (at all!) then the only way to succeed will be by promoting on the OnlyFans platform itself via shoutouts.

Before I explain OnlyFans shoutouts… let me ask you – why is it that you don’t want to promote on social media?

99% of the time it’s because models want to remain anonymous – especially to their friends and family.

However, I know from experience that if you create a new online identity for OnlyFans – the chances of anyone from your real-life finding your content online is about the same as if you only promote on OnlyFans (with Shoutouts) and don’t promote on social media at all.

Your new ‘online’ identity would have completely new private social media accounts…separate from your personal life.

And like I already said – it’s going to be much harder to get more OnlyFans subscribers without promoting on social media.

There is a tradeoff between your personal privacy and the potential audience you can reach. A lower reach makes it harder to be a success on OnlyFans.

(It’s our view that if you want to be an OnlyFans success then at some point, someone from your real life will find your content – and we think you should confront that upfront, before starting your OnlyFans career. One option is to promote on social media but never show your face on there or on OnlyFans – again this makes it harder to succeed but you stay 99.9% anonymous by not showing your face. )

If you want to learn the best social media platforms and strategies for promoting OnlyFans while remaining relatively private – keep reading.

If you will not promote on social media, face or no-face –  jump to the “OnlyFans Shoutouts’  section at the bottom of the menu below – that is the only way to promote OnlyFans without social media effectively.

Making new private social media accounts

If you use social media, you still want to keep that business away from your “real-life” social media.

This is why you should create a ‘stage name’, a new email address, and new (private) social media accounts on all the popular platforms:

  • Reddit
  • Snap
  • Twitter
  • Insta
  • Tiktok

It’s best to have the same username (your “stage name”) on all platforms if possible.

Each platform has different requirements for their username and certain usernames are alewady taken.

Use to check the availability of a username on multiple platforms at the same time (except Snapchat & Reddit, you gotta check those yourself).

To keep a new email account (and any new phone number) separate from your private life – DO NOT sync your phone or email contacts when prompted to do so

Some other tips you should consider when creating your new online persona:

  • Don’t use your real name
  • Use a brand new email address
  • Block your close friends and family

If you’re trying to not post on social media and promote your OnlyFans anonymously Reddit is the number one platform you should focus on.

Whether you’re showing your face or not Reddit is THE best platform to promote your OnlyFans.

Let me repeat – you don’t have to show your face on Reddit.

Is it harder if you don’t show your face? Yes.

Reddit is the 5th most popular mobile social networking app in the US.

It received over 1.6 billion unique visitors from February 2018 to April 2019.

Reddit has pre-built communities for your niche.

Unlike IG, Twitter, Snap, etc. the competition from other OnlyFans models on Reddit is much lower because most models simply don’t know how to use Reddit.

Reddit can seem really scary and complicated at first.

But it’s really not that hard, OnlyFans Reddit promotion boils down to:  

  1. Finding popular subreddits in your niche
  2. Posting (mostly teaser) content there  
  3. Linking your OnlyFans in your Reddit profile
  4. 💰💰💰

Because most models have not used Reddit much before (if at all!) I put together a FREE training series that focuses on Reddit.

You will know how to tap into this hidden GOLDMINE after the training.


Another great way to increase your privacy is to use the ‘Geoblocking’ feature of OnlyFans.

With this feature, you can block entire countries from being able to access your OnlyFans account.

If you’re from the United States… you may want to avoid this feature as the USA is the biggest market in the world for OnlyFans subs.

But if you’re from… say… New Zealand!

Then it might be wise to block all of New Zealand from your OnlyFans – that means your friends, family, and anyone from New Zealand can’t access your OnlyFans page, even if they find it.

To use Geoblocking:

  • Go to the settings 
  • Security 
  • IP and Geoblocking 

Now just choose the countries you want to block and hit save.

Is Geoblocking 100% effective?

No, it’s true that a devious person could use a VPN to get around the geoblock – but they’d have to be pretty determined to access your page.

OnlyFans Shout-Outs

A S4S (Shoutout For Shoutout) means you and another OnlyFans model post each other’s pictures and OnlyFans link on your own page – so that both your subscribers see each other.

This way you can both get exposure – without posting on social media.

There is a market of paying customers already on the OnlyFans platform.

What you need to do is get your page in front of their eyeballs.

The only way to do this without promotion on social media is to promote on the OnlyFans platform itself.

Nobody is going to subscribe to your account without some kind of preview.

This is why you will need to have 2 OnlyFans accounts.

  • 1 free account (this is your “preview”).
  • And 1 paid account.

You can link both these accounts inside OnlyFans settings.

Here’s how you can promote OnlyFans without social media :

Find other models for both S4S and paid shoutouts. Here are some to find models:

  • Find S4S groups on Reddit, Telegram, Twitter and so on.
  • Use this subreddit to find other models in your niche who want to do S4S.
  • Here is a Telegram group where you can participate in S4S with other models.
  • You can also reach out to free OnlyFans accounts and request a S4S or a paid shoutout.

If you want to avoid groups and reaching out on social media platforms -you can instead find popular and free OnlyFans pages in your niche. 

You can reach out to these pages and ask if they do Shoutout For Shoutout (S4S) or if they offer a paid shoutout service. 

Why free pages? You can message free accounts once you’ve subscribed to them, which is free to do. 

The best option if you have the money is PAID shoutouts from pages that have huge amounts of followers and thus enable you to grow your page FAST.

This is also the best option for complete beginners as S4S services and models usually want you to have a decent number of followers first, understandably. 

You’re should only pay for a shoutout if the page has 2,000+ followers.

If you don’t have any money to promote your page the next best option is to request S4S from accounts with 1-5,000 followers.

Research free accounts 

This step is tricky because the OnlyFans search feature is currently TERRIBLE. 

You can only access the search function on desktop and you can’t actually search for accounts like you would on Instagram. 

So how DO you find popular, free accounts in your niche?

The hard way is manually clicking around and clicking through popular free accounts. 

A good place to start is at the most popular free OnlyFans accounts.

Subscribe to them for free.

And then reach each out to them.

Here are some of the most popular free OnlyFans accounts: 


But you should not reach out to ONLY these accounts. 

You also need to look at the feeds/timelines of these accounts. 

Very often you will find cross-promotions to other free accounts. 

You can out these accounts too, and the other accounts that they are cross-promoting, and so on.
