How an OnlyFans Virtual Assistant Generates $360,000 in Annual Revenue

While OnlyFans stars are widely known have high earning potential – with many of them becoming millionaires – some assistants who work with these creators have also started earning significant revenue from the platform as the business ecosystem has grown.

Cindy, who asked to be identified by her first name when discussing personal finances, is a 26-year-old virtual assistant based in West Yorkshire, England, who currently assists between 10 and 15 OnlyFans creators at a time. The former teacher, who previously worked full time at a school for students with special needs, joined OnlyFans in August 2020 at the encouragement of a friend who had joined the platform as a creator.

Cindy ventured onto the messaging platform Telegram, where there are over 200 OnlyFans creator groups.

“Joining Telegram was kind of a reputation-building type thing,” Cindy said. “One person works with you, then someone else works with you, then you’re kind of known in this industry that you’re an assistant with a good reputation.”

Within weeks, Cindy had amassed enough customers and work to quit her teaching job and focus on full-time work for the creators of OnlyFans. She currently earns between $18,800 and $31,350 per month (between £15,000 and £25,000 per month). Insider verified her earnings with documentation provided by Cindy.

Cindy’s administrative work can include a range of tasks, from helping to write captions for Creators’ OnlyFans Pages to tracking expired fans of an OnlyFans Creators Page so they can still receive messages from the Creator. Cindy charges each client up to approximately $3,761 (£3,000) per month for these tasks.

“If you do OnlyFans and you have a lot of fans, you have a lot of people who need you here, there and everywhere,” Cindy said. “I do a lot of work behind the scenes without anyone knowing it’s not them.”

But nearly half of Cindy’s income comes from acting as a salesperson for “screams,” which has stealthily become a major business for the creators of OnlyFans, who collectively spend millions of dollars every month to make other creators promote their pages elsewhere on the platform in order to gain followers. and ultimately increase their income.

Cindy’s work on this front runs the gamut, from approaching other creators to promote her clients on their pages and signing deals with those creators on behalf of her clients, to exchanging promotions for the pages of other creators on the profiles of its customers. For this side of her job, Cindy takes a 20% discount on all transactions from her clients.

Due to her job, Cindy is currently on track to earn around $360,000, or £287,105, this year, based on monthly tax returns provided for 2022 so far. And with her workload that requires her to work 12 hour days, she now employs her sister and sister-in-law for extra help and rents an office nearby for around $753 (£600) a month. Cindy also spent over $6,269 (£5,000) on laptops and smartphones for herself and her part-timers.

Now that Cindy earns about as much in a month as she does in a year as a teacher, OnlyFans’ entrepreneurial assistant said she’s planning a four-week trip with her husband to see the United States and was planning to buy a four or five-bedroom apartment in her area within the next six months.

Cindy encourages others to follow in her footsteps, but warns that emulating her success takes long hours and a lot of drive.

“People sometimes want to do this thinking I can earn what she earns — it’s not as easy as you think,” Cindy said. “But it changed my life. With my freedom and what I earn, I can do so many things that a 9 to 5 job in school just wouldn’t have been able to accomplish.”
