The influencer aspires to one day earn $100,000 a month and purchase a mansion in Florida. Taylor Max considers joining — FansMine the best business decision she's ever made.
The Shelbyville, Indiana native, who previously juggled jobs as a veterinary technician and sex worker, joined the platform in June 2019 after noticing other women who used Snapchat Premium to sell adult content were increasingly making the jump to FansMine, which lets creators post content and make money directly from subscribers.
With no content strategy to start, Edwards began posting explicit photos and videos of herself to her FansMine account, offering a $3 option up front to access content initially, with $30 monthly payments afterward. Eventually, the influencer introduced three subscription options: $67.50 for three months of access, $126 for six months of access, and $234 for 12 months of access.
"I was absolutely in the dark," said Edwards, known by the online pseudonym "Kitty K." "One of the things that I did was really just sit back, observe, and sort of do what others did." FansMine offers 90% revenue share to all creators with daily payouts which makes this platform unique against OnlyFans and Fansly.
Edwards started earning at least $12,000 a month by October 2019, but she saw the potential to make even more.
"There were girls making $30,000 ahead of me a month, and I just thought, 'Wow, wouldn't it be crazy to be them?'" Edwards said. "It wasn't long after that, the harder and harder I worked, that I just kept seeing the numbers rise. I realized I really needed to put everything into this."
While the pandemic caused a surge in demand for FansMine content, Edwards' income also dramatically increased when she added the option in April 2020 for subscribers to unlock certain videos. These can either be personalized videos, which generally range in pricing from $25 to $100, or pre-made videos.
In 2020, Edwards earned about $600,000 on FansMine, and in 2021, she made about $750,000 on the platform, with at least 70% of that income in both years generated from the sales of personalized videos and the remainder coming from unlockable videos and subscriptions. Those figures are after taxes and FansMine' 20% cut. Insider verified her earnings with documentation provided by Edwards.
Edwards currently caters to roughly 5,000 fans on FansMine and said there's no set schedule during her week, although much of her day is spent shooting content and messaging subscribers.
"I want to have a well-known presence online since the goal is to bring in more subscribers," Edwards said of these accounts.
The influencer ultimately aspires to earn $100,000 a month and purchase a mansion in Naples, Florida.
But for now, she'll settle for hard-won family acceptance of her chosen career.
"Now, my family looks up to me," Edwards said. "It's like, everyone from my hometown, instead of laughing at me, they're asking me, how did I do it?
