Snapchat since its inception has lent itself as the best platform for sexting. Unlike Twitter or Instagram, its private nature and timed messages make it one of the places to share lewds privately. The term Premium Snapchat is simply used to describe the concept of selling content on a Snapchat account.
If you’ve read other articles on this website, one thing I always stress on is personalizing your content. As an amateur content creator, you have a lot of competition with the plethora of free porn available on the internet and what can set you apart is how you engage with your fans and create an experience personal for them. And due to its nature, using Snapchat to engage with your fans helps you achieve just that. Besides, it already has a decent user base and since it's already extremely popular for sexting there aren’t a lot of mental and physical barriers to have guys buy-in and pay up.
Here are a few things you can offer on Snapchat:
Now that we know what Premium Snapchat is, here is a practical mini guide on running one.
I want to start with a few important tips you should consider changing before starting selling to keep yourself safe and maintain some privacy in your vanilla life.
For models working with Jojo’s Girls, we like to run two Premium Snapchat accounts simultaneously. One of them is used for promoting and has public stories with explicit teasers. The second is completely private and used for selling content where only paid subscribers are added. We have found that models generally find this easier to manage and also allows a backup of subscribers in case the account gets deleted.
The other way is to have one account with both public and private stories. Post your promos on the public stories and post premium content on private stories only your subscribers are added to.
The advice in this sections is a general guideline and you should always adapt it to make content based on your own personality and niche.
Generally you want to create content that catches eyes. Far too often, I see perfectly good content spoiled by a shaky camera zoomed all the way in. For starters, make sure you have decent lighting, the camera is upright and appropriately covers what you are trying to film. You can look into Snapchat's new feature for hands-free stories to free your hands up and add some distance.
Whatever you do, try to personalize content as much as possible. Not every snap has to involve your masturbating or having sex. Some light teasing throughout out the day will keep people engaged and bring you more payments in the long run. For one-on-one setups go with the flow and make it look like a normal healthy sexting session. I personally don't recommend sharing snaps outside your house for safety reasons since you don't want to get doxxed.
For your teasers, the best way is to create short clips from your explicit sessions and cover the good bits up with Snapchat stickers or text inviting them to pay for a subscription. Its ok to engage with guys who haven't paid yet since this tells them you're real.

Generally, you will have to take payment and keep track of who paid and when their subscription ends. You can either take payment through a popular app like PayPal and use a spreadsheet to keep track of subscribers or use a specialized platform built just for this purpose.
Payment is one of the biggest pain points for content sellers since a lot of providers are not sex-worker friendly but there are a few different options. Here is a comparison of everything you can use:
PayPal or Venmo PayPal, Venmo and alot of mainstream money transfer apps don’t allow transactions for sex work so it is always a risk of getting banned. In order to circumvent bans you can make a second unverified account and transfer cash out to your main account linked to a bank account as soon as you can. If you are hell bent on using your main account, make a business account to prevent your real name from being shared. The good thing is that these apps are available worldwide and most people already use it.
Fee: 0% for friends and family, 2% for businesses
CashApp CashApp also does not allow any transactions for sex works but is still widely used by a lot of girls. You can easily make an account using an alias without linking a bank account and withdraw cash through an ATM. Again, I recommend withdrawing as soon as possible. Ask your fans to send money without mentioning adult content to stay under the radar. For unverified account they have a limit on the amount of around $250-500/week.
Gift Cards Gift cards can be an excellent way of accepting payments for Premium Snapchat since they are completely anonymous both for the buyer and seller and are relatively safe. The only problem is they have to be used in certain stores and in certain countries. You can exchange Gift Cards for cash on websites like cardpool.com. There are a number of such services that can be found through a Google Search.
ManyVids ManyVids is platform you can use to sell your content. It has a search engine built in with a really good preview functionality. You can sell anything from clips to panties besides Premium Snapchat subscriptions on it in case you want to monetize your lifestyle further. It does have a hefty fee but it is worth it given how many features it has and the amount of exposure you can get through it.
Chaturbate or other cam sites If you already cam (highly recommended if you want to get followers fast) you can use it to accept payment for Premium Snapchat as well. In your tip menu, offer Premium Snapchat subscriptions in exchange for Chaturbate tokens. If someone pays, have them send you a PM with their username. I find it easy to convert cam viewers who already have tokens to Premium Snapchat subscribers as well.
OnlyFans OnlyFans is a platform (almost like an adult Twitter) with the sole purpose of selling premium content to your fans. If you find Premium Snapchat hard to manage, you can simply use Snapchat to promote yourself using freebies and then use OnlyFans to sell your content. It has subscriptions, payments and ability to share content privately built-in and has quite a large number of users.
As I always say...everywhere. Generally, you want to sign-up on as many payment platforms mentioned above and then promote yourself on social media as much as you can.
Here is an article on the Phat Cat theory of Camming which will help you understand where money comes from as an adult content creator.
Generally, vanilla social media will be the best place to promote since guys are already on it. Whatever you do, be sure to cross mention all your online presence as much as you can.
