Can You Make Money Selling Nudes on Snapchat?
That and the privacy-focused features like self-destructing messages made it hot among teenagers.
In addition to teens, another category of peeps joined the bandwagon — adult workers.
As a result, Snapchat has become a place where horny dudes and dudettes go to buy smutty goods and services. These include sexting, the girlfriend experience, dick rating, and, of course, nudes.
However, selling nudes on Snapchat is a big no-no, according to the TOS. But obviously, that doesn’t stop adult workers from cashing in their birthday suit pics.
After all, rules are made to be broken — especially if doing so can fatten your wallet while hurting no one.
Speaking of wallets, Elle Monroe from London shared that her naughty Snapchat gig brought her around £1000 on a good day. You heard right, not a good month — a day.
Of course, not everyone makes as much as Elle, at least not right off the bat. Still, as long you know what you’re doing, you can rake it in on Snapchat — big time!
If you like the sound of that, let’s get into the nitty-gritty.
How to Sell Nudes on Snapchat — Public and Premium Account
For best results, you’ll want to create two Snapchat accounts — public and premium. In a nutshell, the former is where you’ll promote your brand so that you can sell nudes on the latter.
With basics out of the way, let’s dig into the fine print.
In short, treat your public account just like any other social media.
Whether it’s a morning coffee, walking your dog, or a day at the beach — you can share all these moments with followers. By doing this, you’ll achieve two things.
First, you’ll show your potential buyers that you are indeed a real person, with life, hobbies, and fun personality. As such, you won’t seem scammy.
Thanks to that, people will feel more comfortable paying for your nudes or anything else that you might offer.
Second, you’ll build relationships. Namely, connecting with fans on a personal level is exactly what gives your nudes the edge over all the free, generic porn out there.
Ultimately, your clients will be paying for the sense of intimacy more than the mere nudity. So, post Snapchat stories regularly and let your fans get to know you better.
At the same time, keep those posts vanilla. As we said, Snapchat has a beef with all things smut, so make sure your public account is squicky clean.
In simple terms, leave that thong for later and put on some yoga pants.
It’s time to take that G-string out of the drawer because your premium account is the place for all things naughty. In other words, this is where you’ll post all your nudes and other raunchy content.
Interestingly, this isn’t an official Snapchat feature. In fact, your premium account is simply a regular account that you’ll keep private.
You can do that by setting up the app so that only friends can contact you and see your stories.
After a client pays for the subscription, you’ll add them to the account and let them enjoy your spicy content. In other words, they have to reach for their wallet before they reach down their pants.
In addition, you can also create private stories. With these, you’ll get to choose exactly who you want to share your content with.
This is particularly handy when selling custom stuff, or nudes that you don’t want to include in your subscription.
Types of Subscriptions
Of course, you’re your own boss, and you can set up your gig any way you want.
That said, most creators offer monthly or lifetime subscriptions (or both). Whichever method you choose, there will be pros and cons.
First, if you charge monthly, your income will likely be more stable. On the downside, you might need to keep track of each payment yourself since Snapchat won’t help you with this.
Plus, you’ll get less per subscription; most models charge between $10 and $30 per month.
On the other hand, once you sell a lifetime subscription you won’t need to check if the client paid each month.
Also, you’ll get more money in one sitting — lifelong subscriptions go all the way to three digits. However, there won’t be recurring payments from the same customers.
At the end of the day, you can try out both models and see what works for you.
Finally, if you’re offering custom nudes outside of monthly plans, you can charge per photo or bundle. If you need help coming up with rates, check our article on how to price nudes.
Figuring Out the Payment
Sadly, when you’re selling nudes on Snapchat, you don’t have the option of receiving money through the platform. As a result, you’ll need to use a third-party websites for this purpose.
There are quite a few options out there, and we’ll cover the best among them.
Fancentro is a neat platform that allows models to engage with fans and sell sexy content. Conveniently, you can also use it to sell social media subscriptions, including your premium Snapchat.
In short, Fancentro is similar to most adult platforms. Once you set up an account, you’ll post alluring stories to attract followers and potential buyers.
Then, you can set up different plans and choose how much to charge for each. You’ll also get to add all kinds of perks to those plans.
In your case, one of your perks would be access to your premium Snapchat. So, after someone buys your plan, you’ll add them to your premium account.
Once that subscription expires, the platform will notify you so you can remove the client from your Snapchat. That way, you won’t need to bend over backward to keep up with who paid and who didn’t each month.
Naturally, Fancentro will take a bite out of anything you make there. More precisely, 20% of your earnings will go to the platform.
Yes, you’ll lose a good chunk of your profits. But on the upside, you’ll have more free time for creating content, your hobbies, or whatever floats your boat.
Unlike Fancentro, Cash App lets you receive money without a fee. In other words, you’ll get to keep everything you earn.
On the downside, this app won’t manage your subscriptions and payments. As a result, you’ll need to do that manually.
That typically means making lots of lists and spreadsheets and updating them regularly.
Ultimately, it’s a trade-off. So, if you don’t mind investing more time as long as you can keep all the money, Cash App is the way to go.
Interestingly, you can also use the popular camming platform for this purpose. Namely, many cam girls sell Snapchat nudes and subscriptions for Chaturbate tokens.
The easy way to do this is to include your premium subscription in your tipping menu. Then, you’ll cash out on the platform as usual.
Again, you’ll need to manage those subscriptions and payments yourself, just like with the Cash App.
But the upside is you won’t have to bend over backward to promote your stuff. Since most of those viewers are your fans, a good chunk of them will gladly pay to see more of you.
That said, if you’re not into camming, it’s okay to stick to the gigs that you enjoy. However, you’ll need to find other ways to promote your nudes, which leads us to our next topic.
How to Promote Your Snapchat
For people to buy your premium subscriptions, you’ll first need them to land on your free account. But, since this gig goes against the rules, promoting it without getting a ban is a tricky business.
Luckily, adult creators are — creative. As a result, they’ve come up with a bunch of ways to promote their stuff.
But before we share the dos, let’s touch upon what not to do. Namely, as an adult platform with an immense client pool, OnlyFans seems like an obvious place to advertise your Snapchat gig.
However, this isn’t a good idea. The thing is, OnlyFans doesn’t want you to funnel its clientele to other adult businesses.
If you decide to do it anyway, you run the risk of the platform giving you the boot. That said, nothing’s stopping you from doing the opposite.
But for that to work, you’ll first need to hype up your Snapchat gig. There are several ways to do this, and we’ll share some of the best ones.
Shouts for Shouts
This is an easy and effective way for creators to promote their Snapchat.
Basically, you’ll contact other models via social media and ask them to promote your public account on their Snapchat. In return, you’ll give them a shoutout on yours.
That way, you’ll both get more exposure and followers. And who knows — you might even strike up a few friendships with fellow creators along the way.
To be given this opportunity, you’ll need to reach out to these brands on Twitter and ask for a takeover. If you get lucky, they’ll typically give you a few hours on their account.
Use this time to create fun and sexy posts and engage with the audience. Many models do a Q&A session for this purpose.
Whatever you do, the goal is to pique people’s interest and make them want to follow you on your public Snapchat.
Like most adult stints, you can promote Snapchat on your socials. Notably, platforms like Instagram and Twitter will help you grow your brand, as well as your following.
Now, if you’ve ever promoted any adult gig, you know that you have to be subtle on Instagram and steer clear of nudity. As for Twitter, you can get as explicit as you like.
Either way, the idea is to show off your sexiness and engage with followers.
In addition, you can use Reddit to advertise more directly. Namely, you’ll want to post teasers on subreddits like r/Sexsells and r/slutsofsnapchat and tell people that there’s more of that on your Snapchat.
Now, getting followers from these platforms to your public Snapchat can be tricky. An obvious option is to share your username on your socials.
However, many creators don’t do this and you might not want to either. The thing is, while you can get a boatload of followers this way, some of them can easily report you and get you banned.
Instead, you can stay on the safe side and tell people to ask for your Snapchat in the DMs.
Truth be told, growing your audience like this will take time. But on the bright side, you’ll minimize the risk of a random person snitching on you.
Quick Tips for Selling Nudes on Snapchat
Before you get on with selling nudes on Snapchat, here are a few tips to help you stay ahead of the curve.
Don’t Bother With the Time Wasters
Interacting with your fans is a big part of the gig, but don’t let them waste your time. Instead, make it clear that you’re not interested in chatting unless they pay for the premium.
Don’t worry, fans who value your time will understand. On the other hand, those who take offense are likely fishing for freebies.
So, if they get pushy, hit the Block button after telling them to kick rocks. Ultimately, save your time and energy for the fans who respect you and your work.
Weed Out the Weirdos
Similarly, if someone’s being a creep or just gives you a bad vibe, don’t hesitate to block them. In addition to making you feel bad, those are the folks that will often report you.
Sure, you might miss out on a few potential buyers this way. But that’s nothing compared to the money and time you’ll be losing if your account gets suspended.
Besides, there are plenty of horndogs on the Internet, so blocking a few isn’t a big deal.
Use Two Devices
Despite all the precautions, someone might still report you and have you lose your Snapchat. If your public and premium accounts are on the same device, the ban will affect both.
So, keeping them on separate smartphones will save you a lot of trouble. If, say, your premium account gets suspended, just make a new one and use your public account to spread the word.
It might be a hassle to add your subscribers all over again, but it’s sure as hell better than starting from scratch.
Stay Off the Map
While you’ll want to put your business on the map, it’s best to stay off it in literal terms.
Namely, the app gives you an option to share your location with friends. For obvious reasons, you should never do this.
After all, if people know where to find you, things can go from weird to dangerous very quickly.
To stay on the safe side, check your Live Map settings. As long as both Ghost Mode and Hide My Live Location options are on, there’s nothing to worry about.
With this knowledge under your belt, you’re all set to start selling nudes on Snapchat. So, grab your camera, lose the clothes, and begin swapping those snaps for stacks!
