Singaporean influencer, Tammy Tay, surprised everyone when she posted on her Instagram @ohsofickle on 21st July about joining OnlyFans. Her decision left most wondering the reason behind the 30-year-old’s sudden desire to pursue the platform, which she answered on an episode of “Just Saying” with The Backstage Bunch recently.
In the 15-minute video, the single mother-of-two explained that her salon was unable to operate due to Covid-19 restrictions last year, prompting her to apply for a six-figure loan to pay her staff and rent. Although the salon was able to reopen in 2022, she struggled to recover from the loss caused by the prolonged period of inactivity.
The founder of Fickle Beauty, explained her decision, saying “I gotta make ends meet, I gotta do something without much investment. I’ve seen people do OnlyFans, and I’ve heard a lot about OnlyFans.” She mentioned how one of the OnlyFans content creators had inspired her to venture into the social platform as well.
Despite not posting explicit content on her account, the content creator confirms she is paid well for her exclusive photos and even reveals how she tactically raises her price. “To unlock it (the content), it’s like forty dollars and then if I stop replying halfway, they’re like why aren’t you replying and I’ll say that someone else is tipping me more so I have to prioritise them first,” she explains.
“The (six digit) loan is (supposed to be paid off in) five years. But if I do OF (OnlyFans), I probably could pay it off in ten months or less,” the influencer went on. She also expressed her gratitude for joining OnlyFans, claiming that she would not have been able to pay off her loan if she hadn’t.
“I cannot find a job that can pay me well enough. If I have a degree, I honestly would be able to find a job but I have none of that. If you ask me to write a resume, it’s all my own businesses and it’s not a proper resume,” she elaborates. Another perk of starting an OnlyFans is not having to invest some capital like her other businesses.
As of now, the influencer is unsure whether she will continue to use the platform after she has paid off her loan. “It’s worrying because you run out of content and you can only do so much. So, I’m not sure how long I can last on the platform,” she shares. As of now, Tammy is comfortably earning 5 digits a month (with the majority of income from Pay Per View).
