‘OnlyFans’ Favorite MILF’ Elaina St. James talks online trends, tools and inspired growth in a new profile for Passionfruit, “Finding Success On TikTok and OnlyFans in Your 50s: A Conversation with Elaina St. James”.
In the refreshingly honest article, St. James delves into her inspiring – and often challenging – journey over the past 2-1/2 years creating and developing her influential online brand from the ground up in a digital landscape often dominated by youth, as the Midwestern Mom defies conceptions and breaks the mold as an over-50 NSFW content creator.
“I created content that showed my big smile, friendly attitude, and added in a little flirtatious fun,” she said. “I leaned into showing the world who I was, a creator in her fifties, who was proud of her body, and started to gain followers, especially when I put out video content on Instagram just moving around or dancing to a song.”
Armed with a can-do spirit, she navigated her way through the intricate world of content creation, fast-tracked her learning curve and leveraged crucial tips such as brand authenticity and consistent content delivery.
“I bought a ring light and a tripod. From there, I watched hundreds of YouTube videos on how to shoot videos and photos yourself using an iPhone,” she said. “Those free videos were essential. They taught me everything I needed to know about filming videos on my own and making them look professional. Posting daily, or close to it, helps you feed the beast of public attention.”
Determined to tap into the power of social media, St. James meticulously studied Reddit threads, learning from fellow creators on how to gain subscribers on platforms like Instagram and TikTok, and hired an outside firm to deal with copycat accounts and catfishing. She currently dedicates a staggering 6-9 hours daily to manage her social media accounts and spends an hour a week brainstorming new content.
St. James adds that she wants to be “a beacon of hope. For any woman, or man, in their 30’s, 40’s, or 50’s, who feels like their life is over… I want them to see that maybe their best days are in front of them. Mine still are.”
