- Audrey Aura is an Australian OnlyFans creator who creates adult content.
- Aura joined the platform in mid-2020 and last year joined the top 0.46% earners.
- Here’s how much she’s earned in 2021 and why she’s starting a coaching program.
For years before she started creating adult content, Audrey Aura, a 23-year-old Australian OnlyFans model, admired those who worked in space.
“I’ve always been in awe of people in the industry,” she told Insider. “How they regained their bodily autonomy.”
Audrey – who uses the stage name Aura for privacy reasons – joined OnlyFans in early 2020 after years of mulling over the idea.
“We’re sexualized anyway, so why not make money out of it?” she said.
Today, she has around 3,000 followers on two separate OnlyFans accounts. In 2021, she reached the top 0.46% of creators on the platform by revenue and earned $143,000 (just over 200,000 AUD). The insider verified her earnings information with the documents she provided.
She keeps two profiles because OnlyFans doesn’t offer the ability to set subscription levels on one profile, she said. Its more affordable account costs $19.99 per month, while the one with more content costs $49.99 per month.
On his cheaper account, subscribers can pay extra to message him directly and receive personalized content. These fees made up the bulk of Audrey’s income in 2021, earning her $96,000 (AUD135,000). The most expensive profile is mainly a video catalog which she adds twice a week.
In 2021, she earned $27,000 (AUD 38,500) from fan tips and $21,700 (AUD 30,500) from subscriptions.
Audrey currently only monetizes content on OnlyFans, although she plans to get into brand sponsorship on Instagram, where she has 40,000 followers across three profiles.
Six months after launching her OnlyFans, Audrey decided to work full-time and her income quickly increased. In a few months at the end of 2021, she earned over $21,000 (AUD 30,000).
Audrey said OnlyFans has given her financial security she couldn’t imagine before, as well as real flexibility with her work schedule.
But success also comes with downsides, including burnout, Audrey said. She had to take a step back early last year after realizing she was working too much. She also regularly has strangers commenting on her body.
“It can be quite intimidating,” she said. “You absolutely have to have a hard surface.”
Despite these challenges, she said she never doubted her career choice.
“Honestly, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done,” she said.
OnlyFans content is booming, but “people don’t have the tools to do it”
As Audrey’s OnlyFans content grew in popularity, she noticed an increase in direct messages from people asking for advice on how to be successful as an adult content creator.
“I was giving away so much information,” she said. “But it’s really hard to give it to every single person…I would spend all day responding to DMs.”
In November 2021, OnlyFans told Insider that there were over 2 million content creators on the platform and it had over 180 million users, up from 85 million users at the end of 2020.
“I know there’s a market there,” Audrey said. “So many people want to do it, but they don’t have the knowledge or the tools.”
She decided to create a business-friendly coaching program OnlyFans, joining a number of other adult content creators who have done so the past, including Karley Stokes, who has one of the best 0.1% profiles on the platform.
The course, which will be released in mid-February, will include 63 lessons divided into 13 modules, over 8 hours of video footage, one-on-one coaching with Audrey, and networking with other creators in the space.
The OnlyHustle MasterClass – as Audrey named it – currently has a pre-launch waiting list of 2,600 people (though they haven’t paid yet).
The course costs $495 (699 AUD) for a basic package and $920 (1,299 AUD) for a VIP package with more guidance and interaction with Audrey. It will cover the basics of starting an online adult content business, including tips on how to build profiles and promote different social media accounts, as well as tips on managing security and privacy. Mental Health.
Her end goal is to eventually create a digital marketing agency dedicated to adult content creators, she said.
“A lot of people need help with editing and social media strategy, but they can’t get it from normal agencies because they don’t know the industry,” he said. she declared.
