What’s Required To Get Started?
The requirements are insanely simple. You need to be eighteen or older, a phone and the Snapchat app. That’s essentially it. If you’re registering for any of the actual Snapchat networks, you’ll need to provide a digital copy of ID for age verification. Any sites featuring adult models are required to verify the age of those featured on the site.
How Much Can You Make From Snapchat Subscriptions
The great thing about Snapchat subscriptions is the earning potential is fairly limitless. The more subscribers you have, the greater the monthly payouts. It’s up to each model to drive subscriptions and deliver quality Snaps to keep them subscribed. Thousands per month is definitely possible, but there’s no guaranteed income.
Models who have a larger following / customer-base (from camming or offering other services) will definitely have an easier time ramping up their subscriber-base. Models that are proactive about promotion will also have better success. There’s a section further in this guide that goes over the various ways you’re able to promote your premium Snapchat.
Lifetime Access Vs Monthly Subscriptions Vs Yearly Subscriptions
There’s multiple ways that you can make money off Snapchat. You can either sell unlimited / lifetime access, or subscription-based access. The most common durations for subscription-based access is either monthly or yearly. You could also sell 6-month, 3-month, 2-month or any other duration you see fit. Some models will have different pricing tiers for different subscription durations.
Sites For Selling Snapchat Subscriptions
The best way to process payments and manage monthly subscriptions is through a network that supports Snapchat. The networks that specialize in Snapchat will even handle the monthly rebills. Models receive a notification whenever a new customer subscribes, as well as when they unsubscribe or a rebill doesn’t go through.
There are other sites (clip sites, camming sites) that can be used to sell premium Snapchat access, but don’t necessarily specialize in them. These sites can still be used for Snapchat subscriptions, but don’t contain helpful features, such as the rebills or subscription/unsubscriber notifications.
All these sites also have their own user-base and customer traffic. This traffic will help drive sales for your premium Snapchat and other services you might be offering. Having a flawless and complete profile helps you stand out from the crowd and makes this even more effective.
Ways To Promote Your Premium Snapchat
Although the Snapchat directories do a lot to drive traffic that will result in potential sales, it’s still recommended that you do your own promotion as well. Here are the most effective ways to promote your premium Snapchat account:
Building A Following On Snapchat Networks
The premium Snapchat networks themselves can be the greatest marketing tool. The directories for these various sites already have customer traffic looking for accounts to subscribe to. Having a complete profile, including a bio, stats, network links, and anything else available will help surfers find you better. Also make sure to use the best profile photos possible. Anything to make you stand out in the directory, searches and other pages.
Social media marketing is not only a great way to get traffic and sales, but it’s also 100% free. Odds are, most models already have personal social media accounts. Business / promotional accounts work just the same, eliminating the learning curve. There are some adult-friendly social networks, such as Twitter and Tumblr. For those that don’t allow for adult content, it’s still possible to market through them. You just need to get creative about it.
A Snapchat takeover is where a model takes over another Snapchat account. This account might be a promotional account, one belonging to a company (tube sites all have them, for example) or another model’s public or premium account. The great thing about Snapchat takeovers is that everyone you’re reaching has Snapchat and follows adult performers. It’s easy to get them to follow your public or upsell to premium.
Website / Search Engines
A website can be one of the best marketing tools. A website works as a model’s main hub. It’s where you can list all the services offered and networks you’re part of. Thanks to a couple companies catering to adult stars, it’s possible to easily deploy your own website, 100% free and without having to do anything seriously technical. Websites also make it easy to tap into search engine traffic.
Forums, Communities, Review Sites and Directory Sites
There’s tons of adult forums, communities, review sites, model directory sites and other adult networks that you can promote your services on. Some of these networks are free, and you only need to register an account. Some of these networks (especially the review sites) require some sort of affiliate program to get listed on. Instructions on doing that listed below. Being in as many places as possible always helps with exposure and traffic.
Running An Affiliate Program
If you’re selling through FanCentro, the platform makes it incredibly easy to opt into affiliate promotion. Affiliate Marketing is where webmasters (affiliates) get paid commissions when they drive new sales. Affiliate marketing is a popular marketing tool, as there’s no upfront costs and the affiliates only get paid when they refer sales. Because the commissions will always be justified by the sale amount, affiliate marketing will always be profitable.
Warning About PayPal, Snapcash and Other Ways Of Accepting Payments
Many models will attempt to use PayPal and other platforms to accept payments for premium Snapchat access. Although this will work initially, it’s against the terms of most of these payment platforms. There’s not a whole lot of companies that are adult-friendly. And while it may work for a while (years for some models) eventually your account will be frozen and you’ll most likely lose all funds that haven’t been withdrawn from the platform. It’s best to make sure you’re using an adult-friendly platform from the very start.
Running A Public and Premium Snapchat Account
It’s possible to run both a public Snapchat and a premium Snapchat on the same account. In fact, there’s also multiple ways you can do this. You can either use the Snapchat settings to switch between Everyone and Friends Only (friends being the premium subscribers). Or, a much more simple method, stories can be used for public / premium Snapchat.
Running a public Snapchat is great for promotion. Public Snapchats can be used to up-sell your public subscribers to premium. The public account can also be used to promote any other content or services you’re offering.
Snapchat Privacy Concerns: Protecting Your Identity
Privacy is a major concern for all adult stars, regardless of what services they’re offering. Selling Snapchat is no different. Also, there’s some major privacy concerns within the app itself! Make sure to turn on Ghost Mode, or else the app will display your location! Definitely something you don’t want. Also make sure to not take any snaps that include easily identifiable structures or landscapes that can easily link you to where you live.
Also Check Out OnlyFans – Best Adult Snapchat Alternative
If you’re interested in selling premium Snapchat, you also need to check out OnlyFans. OnlyFans is a subscription-based social network with payment processing built directly into the platform. Best of all, they’re adult-friendly! All the content on your OnlyFans account is censored until the user pays the subscription fee to access it. OnlyFans also comes with a mobile application that makes it easy to upload new content and manage your page.

Producing and Selling Clips / Galleries
Producing and selling your own adult content is another way to get into the adult industry. The great thing about selling adult content is that you don’t need to be online in order to make sales. There’s tons of sites and networks to partner with that will let you upload your amateur content, set your price and sales will occur in the background.

Phone Sex - Talking and Texting
Phone sex is one of the oldest forms of adult entertainment. Mobile technology has done a lot to revolutionize it. Now you can get calls routed directly to your mobile phone. In addition to paid calls, you can also get paid to text. Your phone number is connected through a 3rd party and encrypted, keeping your contact information and identity safe and secure.

Adult Skype Shows
Skype shows are very similar to camming but different in a lot of ways. You don’t have a public chat room with Skype chat. Pretty much every show is charged by the minute and most shows are scheduled and booked in advance. Skype shows have great earning potential but require a little bit more work with marketing and booking. Luckily there’s tools to help.

Running A Fanclub
Starting a membership site will create a residual income from monthly rebills. When you run your own membership site, you’re fans must pay to gain access to the Members Only section that contains all the content. There are tools and platforms out there that let you easily deploy your own membership sites, 100% free and with minimal technical knowledge.

Selling Tangibles - Panties, Signed Photos, Toys and More!
Selling tangibles is also a great way to make some extra cash. There’s a huge market for worn panties and other lingerie. It doesn’t stop there though. Signed photos, used toys, art and anything else you can imagine can be sold. Hell, you can get a chocolate molding of your butthole made and offer that to your fans. Get creative. Keep in mind that tangibles do require shipping, making it a little bit more involved than the sale of digital goods.
