The most common question/request I receive via email is how to sell nude photos. This is going to be a clear-as-day in this post today. I’m Aerie and I handle the e-mail and live chat, very nice to meet you!. If you want to sell your nude photos there is a diversity of options to chose from so please read this guide and make a choice that suits your schedule and financial needs when selling your nude photos.
Do you want to sell nudes as a subscription or charge per photo?
If you are looking to sell nudes as a subscription where a member pays per week, per month, for lifetime, etc. then you should be running a subscription based nude service where it is easy to serve to your audience all at once.
Some good examples of where to host your subscriptions are:
The advantage of selling your nude photos as a subscription is that you are catering to multiple people at once which greatly remove the need for one-on-one contact. The payments are easier to manage since they are on a set time as opposed to per photo/interaction. And the need for special props/poses is eliminated when you only advertise as promoting nude photos and not fetish or specific photos.
If you are looking to charge per photo, then you will likely be sending them through a messaging app. Some people combine a Snapchat subscription with the potential to also request specific photos for additional payment. Or they send the photos through a messaging app or sexting platform after receiving payment (some sexting platforms even charge them to open the photo when they open it!)
Some messaging apps that are good for communicating with customers and sending photos after receiving payment are:
The sites that will charge them to open your photo messages are:
What is the easier way to sell nudes, through subscription or per photo?
Selling through subscription is easier to manage simply because you are serving to a wider audience. The earning potential is higher since if you consider you are selling x amount of photos for x amount of money to x amount of customers. And that amount of customers is high, you will be making more than selling to one individual person. The success of subscription also differ depending on the quantity of photos you take. The quality of photos you take, and the amount of subscription renewals you get. For some people who don’t prefer to take nude photos often. Selling them individually or doing custom photo orders may work better than running a subscription based social media app.
How much should I charge for my nudes?
The price you set for your nudes depends entirely on what you value them to be. Keep in mind that the cheaper you price them the more likely you are to sell them. But this can serve as a double edged sword if you feel “cheaped out” by pricing them too low. If the quality of your photos is great, you will likely be able to charge more and sell it. For example, if you’re taking your photos on a high quality DSLR that puts out HD photos then you will be able to make more from that than a cell phone picture that isn’t in HD. You must also keep in mind that the photo may be reorganized without your permission. which will count as a loss towards your profit. Make sure you consider watermarking!
Many models have found success in subscriptions due to the fact that most people viewing these do not expect accordant high quality all of the time. Since a most of the services are phone based. The model is pretty limited to the capability of their phone camera and the compressing of the app. As well as including photos, some subscription running models also find it convenient to post short videos to keep the audience entertained as well which can be easier than setting up and posing for multiple photos.
