You’re a model, you have tattoos, you’re trying to make money selling your content online. I’m sure you’ve heard of OnlyFans, but Inked Girls also came up in your research and you’re curious about the platform also. Maybe you’re torn between the two and are looking for a third party to help you decide which is better for you.
You’ve come to the right place.
Inked Girls is a sister site to IsMyGirl & IsMyGuy that’s all about models that have a lot of tattoos. It’s a niche subscription site which is very rare right now. By having a narrow market they cater to, they quickly cornered the market for models that are addicted to ink.
OnlyFans is one of the most popular fan club or premium social media platforms in the world. Content creators are able to monetize their photos, videos, audio files, and anything else they want to create for their biggest fans. It quickly became a household name in the early parts of 2020.
In this article, we’ll compare and contrast the two platforms so you can get a clear idea of which one would work for you. By the end of the article, you will know exactly which premium social media platform will help you grow a fan base, gain dedicated subscribers, and make a lot of money.
Ways models make money on Inked Girls and OnlyFans
The biggest factor when it comes to picking a premium fan club subscription platform is how you’re able to make money. You’re going to want to pick a website that allows you to sell the content you like to create. If you are already live streaming, you may not need (or want) a site that allows that. If you want to have a clip store, some sites have that option.
There are many ways to make money on Inked Girl, including
- Monthly subscription services between $10 and $60
- Pay to unlock clip store starting at $10
- Pay to unlock private messages
- Custom content
- Premium Snapchat management
- Live streaming
- 1-on-1 camming
- The referral program
There are many ways to make money on OnlyFans, including
- Monthly subscription services between $4.99 and $50
- Pay per message with a $3 minimum and $100 maximum
- Creating custom content for fans
- Tips from fans with a minimum of $3 and a max of $200
- Referral program (there’s a whole section below with more detail)
As you can see, Inked Girls has a lot more potential to make money. You can do everything that would be able to do on OnlyFans and so much more. There are a few other great reasons below in the promotional section that would entice someone to join Inked Girls.
Just be aware that if you’re a webcam model, many sites don’t allow you to link to platforms that have live streaming capabilities because of the competition. So if that’s the case, you should avoid Inked Girls unless you have your own website that you can link to Inked Girls from.
Payout rates & frequency for Inked Girls and OnlyFans
The second biggest factor when choosing a premium platform is how much and how often you get paid. You don’t want to give up too much of your hard earned money, so we’ll look at the payment plans for both Inked Girls and OnlyFans.
Inked Girls pays out 80% on all subscriptions, video sales, and tips and pays out 70% on all live streaming. The 20 and 30 percent, respectively, goes toward payment processing, hosting, maintenance, and research & development.
The pay periods for Inked Girls are the 1st to the 15th and the 16th through to the end of the month. There is a $50 minimum for withdrawals and they are automatically deposited by the 2nd & 17th of the month, assuming you meet the minimum requirements. If not, those earnings are carried over to the next month until you break that threshold.
OnlyFans pays out 80% to its creators with the other 20% going to website maintenance, payment processing, referral payments, hosting, support, and other website needs.
For most users, there is a $20 minimum to withdraw their earnings. Content creators can make withdrawals manually every day or have automatic withdrawals weekly every Monday or on the 1st of the month.
There is is a 7 day period from the time you earn your money to the time you’re able to make a withdraw. This is to cover for any chargebacks or other fraudulent payments. For some models, this is a 21 day period, but switches to a 7 day period four months after 1st withdrawal.
As you can see, both platforms pay out industry-high 80% to their models. If you are a frequent high-earner, OnlyFans allows for daily withdrawals or weekly withdrawals. This is much better than Inked Girls’ bi-monthly payouts.
Regardless of the platform you’re on, getting your money from your model account to your bank account is important. Depending on the content you create, if something were to go wrong with your account and you had a few thousand pending withdrawal, that’s a huge blow to anyone’s wallet.
Which platform helps models get more fans
Regardless of whether you’re brand new to selling content or a seasoned veteran, platform promotions are important. For a new model, this means the difference between making $100 a month and $1,000 a month. For veteran creators, it’s the difference between $10,000 a month and $50,000. Both major differences. We’ll look at how OnlyFans and Inked Girls promote their influencers.
Right away then you go to the Inked Girls homepage you’re met with the most popular, most active, and highest selling models. You can easily filter to the newest models on the platform, trending influencers, and content creators that have the most uploads. Whether you’re brand new or have years worth of content, you can be discovered.
The explore page offers a random assortment of content for fans to find new models. This works well when you have a lot of content because it will be easier to show up here.
Inked Girls also has a strategic partnership with Inked Magazine & a social following of over 36 million followers.
One of the biggest complaints about OnlyFans is that there is no way for accounts to be browsed. If you’re not driving traffic to your page, you’re not being discovered. This can be a major blow to brand new models that may not already have a large social media following.
No contest here, OnlyFans really comes up short when it comes to helping out their SW creators. Inked Girls was made by adult performers and is made for sex workers. Whether you’re brand new or a veteran, Inked Girls is the place for you.
Which referral program is better
If you have a large network of inked models that are eager to get into the industry, using a platforms’ referral program can help increase your earnings. In case you don’t know, a referral program is an incentive for you to recruit additional models to the platform and you make a percentage of what they make. Solo models shouldn’t consider this too much if they don’t have a network of models they can refer.
Inked Girls’ referral program offers you 5% of all earnings for every model you refer forever. You can refer an unlimited amount of models.
The OnlyFans referral program pays out 5% earnings for every model you refer to the site for the first 12 months they’re on OnlyFans. There is a $50,000 earning limit you can make for every model you refer to OnlyFans. So if a model makes more than $1,000,000 in their first year, you’re capped at $50,000 for that model. There is no limit to the number of models you can refer to OnlyFans.
OnlyFans recently changed their referral program from lifetime to only the first 12 months and the first $1,000,000 a model earns. This screwed over a lot of performers that relied on that additional income, and Inked Girls knows this. The Inked Girls referral program isn’t going anywhere so if that’s your primary money make, Inked Girls is your best best. Plus, you can recruit for IsMyGirl and IsMyGuy as well because they all fall under the same referral program.
Which should you use Inked Girls or OnlyFans
When it comes down to it, the only think OnlyFans has over Inked Girls is mainstream name recognition & payout frequency. If you’re a veteran performer or content creator, OnlyFans is great for you because you’ll easily convert existing fans. They know what OnlyFans is and what it’s for.
If you’re a cam model, you should read the rules on your site in regards to promoting sites that allow streaming. Many times they see that as competition so be wary of that.
If you’re planning on doing heavy recruiting, are a new model that doesn’t have a strong following already, or want to gain subscribers on autopilot, Inked Girls is your place to be.
