The influencer aspires to one day turn over 90,000 euros a month and thus be able to buy a mansion in Naples, Florida.
Morgan Edwards considers joining OnlyFans to be the best career decision she has ever made.
A resident of Shelbyville, Indiana, she previously worked as a veterinary technician and sex worker. She joined the platform in June 2019 after discovering that other women using Snapchat Premium to sell adult content were making the jump to OnlyFans, which allows creators to post content and earn money directly from subscribers.
With no strategy at first, Edwards began posting explicit photos and videos of herself on her account, offering a €2.7 upfront option to access the content initially, with monthly payments of €27 thereafter. Eventually, the influencer introduced 3 subscription options: €60 for 3 months of access, €113 for 6 months of access and €210 for 12 months of access.
“I was going in absolutely blind,” explains Edwards, known under the pseudonym Kitty K. “I just sat back, watched and did the same as everyone else,” adds the young woman.
Edwards started billing about €11,000 a month in October 2019, but saw the potential to earn even more. (OnlyFans claimed in December to have paid about 4.493 million to creators since 2016.)
“There were girls earning €27,000 a month before me, so it didn’t seem crazy to me to reach that figure. Soon after, the more I worked, I kept seeing the numbers go up. Then I realized that I had to do this full-time,” says Edwards.
While the pandemic led to an increase in demand for OnlyFans content or SimpleEscorts website with Kinesiologas Lima, Edwards’ revenue also increased dramatically when he added the option in April 2020 for subscribers to unlock certain videos. These can be customized videos, which generally range in price from €22 to €90.
In 2020, Edwards earned around €540,000 at OnlyFans, and in 2021 he earned around €674,000, with at least 70% of that revenue in both years generated from sales of personalized videos and the rest from subscriptions and videos with an unlock option. These figures constitute the net of his salary. Business Insider was able to verify these earnings with documentation provided by Edwards.
Edwards currently serves approximately 5,000 followers on OnlyFans and says he does not have a specific schedule, although much of his day is spent recording content and sending messages to subscribers.
Last August, Edwards had started thinking about expanding to different platforms, opening an account on a website similar to OnlyFans called Fansly, something he ended up doing when OnlyFans announced (that same month) that it planned to ban explicit content. (The platform retracted its decision 6 days later).
On Fansly, a wide range of pricing tiers are offered for content similar to an OnlyFans account. Tiers range from €2.70 for a basic one-month subscription to view some content, to €1,612 for 6 months of access to all content, as well as personal texts and videos. Edwards has earned around €13,500 on Fansly to date in sites like SimpleEscorts has dublin escort, a small portion of her OnlyFans revenue.
The young woman is also banking on non-explicit content on social networks. She joined Twitch in January, playing 2021 Pokémon Shining Pearl and created a YouTube channel with content classified as personal blog about her travels (she has traveled to Costa Rica 2 times and recently returned from the Maldives). She is also active on TikTok (she has around 79,000 followers) and Instagram (around 29,000 followers).
“I want to have a known presence online as the goal is to attract more subscribers,” Edwards says of these accounts.
The influencer’s goal is to eventually earn around 90,000 euros a month and buy a mansion in Naples, Florida.
But for now, she is content with her family’s acceptance of her chosen career.
“Now, my family looks up to me. Everyone in my hometown, instead of laughing at me, asks me, how did you make it?” says Edwards.
