How To Actually Make Money Selling Feet Pics Online
Can guys sell feet pics? Are you able to make money selling feet videos? Can you be anonymous selling feet pics? There are many questions about how to make money selling feet pics. The truth is, there isn't a limit on what you can ‘do' in this industry. What's important to know is that there is in fact a market. A bigfoot one at that (pun intended). Foot fetishes are typically associated with having sexual desires, but you don't have to involve yourself in anything you deem inappropriate.
That means you can make money selling feet pics without ever having to show your face, other body parts, or nudity. A lot of the men and women that sell feet pics online choose to stay anonymous, while others don't. That decision is up to you.
As for how much you can actually earn selling feet pics, the numbers might vary. As will luck. There are several instances where people were able to pay off an entire month's rent, or more, just from landing a few feet-loving clients. If you are savvy, you can take your earnings a step further and set up systems that will allow you to have repeat clients through subscription services like Patreon (more about this later).
Here is an example of a foot content creator (cause, yes, that's a thing) who shares how she makes money selling feet pics. Lydia actually made $1100 from one customized foot video, which she attributes to luck. Nonetheless, that still shows that there are people out there who are willing to pay top-dollar for personalized foot visuals!
That said, there isn't going to be an influx of people who actually do pay that much. But, there are now dedicated websites and apps out there specifically for buying and selling feet. The amount you can make there depends on how much you upload, your clients, and your rates.
The general rule of thumb is to start at $20/picture per foot. You can charge more if you have a client who wants private photos (photos that aren't shared with your public accounts). You can also make more money by selling a bundle package (i.e. 10 pictures + 1 video for $250). There isn't exactly a guidebook for how much to charge when selling feet pics. But you need to not sell yourself short. Buying feet pics is very much a hobby for some just like any other.
That said, check out these popular ways to get started selling feet pics.
Websites & Apps To Sell Feet Pics Online
Instafeet (yes, just like Instagram but not associated with the app), is a private community of foot admirers who can pay to access exclusive content by foot creators. Here's how it works. First, you need to submit a profile for review. Take note that you have to be 18+ and over and show a photo ID in order to be considered. Not every applicant will get approved. Once your profile is accepted, you can start posting content (recommended 5 photos to start) of your feet. Users then have the option to subscribe to your content for a monthly fee. You set the rates, but Instafeet recommends setting it at $10/user, so 5 subscribers would equal $50/month.
Onlyfans is one of the top places to make money selling your feet pics. It acts as a subscription service similar to Patreon, but it is more rated “M” for mature as it's an app dedicated to selling pictures of your body. This doesn't mean you have to include nudity in your feet photos, though. In fact, you can promote practically any type of content you want behind the pay-wall. It works by allowing users to pay a monthly subscription to have access to your photos. You can set the fee as low as $5 and up to $50/month.
Closely related to this site would be the workaround tactic of adult Snapchat.
While Facebook isn't as trendy as other apps for such content, you might be surprised to learn that there are dedicated Facebook groups for buying and selling feet pics. Of course, joining a group would put your personal name and photo at risk. If you go this route, be sure to consider whether or not you wish your info to remain anonymous or not.
Patreon is another way to make money selling your feet pics. You will need to use this service in conjunction with another social media app to first attract your clientele. Having an Instagram account is one way you can promote your Patreon and earn a sustainable amount of money each month by posting exclusive content for your subscribers.
Instagram & Twitter
Instagram and Twitter are very useful social media platforms for getting exposure and attracting buyers to your product. Both accounts have the option of uploading visuals while reaching an audience via hashtags. Tags like #FootFetish and #FootWorship have millions of users and are searched every day for new content.
You might have more luck with an Instagram account, simply because it is “the” visual media app that will convert your audience the best. But don't discount other apps. Even Snapchat and Tiktok, with their huge audiences, are lucrative places to promote feet content.
Tips For Making Money Selling Feet Pics
1. Take Creative Pictures & Videos
If you want to maximize how much you can make selling your feet pics, then it's important that the content itself is worth $$. No one is going to want to spend $20 on a blurry, poor-quality photo that they can find for free online. Getting creative and taking “customer requests” (i.e. rubbing whip cream or peanut butter no your feet) is a way to actually double your potential earnings. Always remember to charge extra for unique requests.
2. Get a Pedicure
Pretty feet are more likely to sell, but that's not always the case. Most of the time, though, a nicer looking foot will sell for more money. Pampering yourself every once in a while wouldn't hurt. Think of it as a good return on investment!
3. Find A Foot Niche
Sure, foot pics are already a niche, but you can narrow it down even further. There are so many different types of feet. If your feet have a particular beauty mark or unique feature, then you should definitely consider capitalizing on that. There are even buyers looking for calloused feet or even unmanicured feet. Whether you have long toenails or an elegant foot arch, it can be marketed and made into money.
4. Watermark Your Content
When growing your “foot brand,” it's important to always watermark your photos so that they cannot be downloaded, stolen, and reshared without credit.
5. Beware Of Scams
Most importantly, beware of scammers and bullies. You don't have to please everyone, so block the haters and don't get personal in private chats. You should treat your feet pics as if they were a business because they essentially are. Always ask for payment upfront, especially if it's a subscription service (otherwise people can cancel before they get debted that month). It's always safer to stay anonymous and never share out personal information, but that is ultimately up to you.
