    Hey there,
    this is my first post here on BHW; writing posts is not my best skill, so if you need any clarification after reading this, just ask!

    I have been on Tumblr for 4 years. I ran a personal account (my own photos) with 4500 followers.
    1.3 year ago, an idea hit me: why not create a Tumblr empire and promote my photos? So I created two accounts and did some research on how to run things on auto. 4 months later, I had 90k followers.
    That was so much at the time! Therefore I wanted to monetize it. Tried adfly (poor me), earned like $5 in two weeks and on top of that, my accounts were banned! (popup ads are a no go).
    After that, I didn't do anything, just focused on school etc, until 8 months ago. I thought, I know what those vokes want on Tumblr, so lets try again.

    So I created 6 blogs (no porn), and accumulated 450k followers.
    10 weeks ago I created a new one, this are the monthly stats for this one blog:
    tumbla.jpg

    Anyway, I have aprox. 510k followers and make $1k (no ads) with them by dedicating 2 hours a week to Tumblr.
    If I wanted to, I could use those 7 blogs to promote new blogs and expand my empire. I want to build, and then sell. Therefore I wanted to ask you guys for an indication: how much are 510k followers worth?

    Thank you for reading.

    It is hard to tell about the worth of 510K followers. Let me know about your niche.

    I have multiple niches. One of them is 'summer' for example. Also, I thought determining something like that was 2 years of revenue times the growth rate for 2 years but that amount is a bit insane imo because the growth is 100k p/m and it grows sort of exponentially.

    Also, all followers are organic. For those of you who find they gains slow. Just wait a little longer. Eventually it will explode.

    The growth is exponential and once you hit certain number of followers it's all automatic and keeps growing like crazy:) As to prize, I'm by no means an expert but for social media accounts I believe it's X 3-6 months of the past revenue

    Yeh, indeed! And use one account per niche. If you go in with more you are only creating competition for yourself and lowering your ROI (unless you don't want your acc to explode and are fine with running 30accs with small numbers)

    X 3-6 months of the past rev, jeez! I am better off keeping it then for the lil' amount of effort it takes.

    I'd HIGHLY recommend trying to appeal to clothing brands to promote their brand/new collection

    They should be willing to pay quite a decent bit to have their stuff posted to 500k followers.

    Rappers and musicians as well
