    Hi. As the title says, for how long do you let your tumblr accounts age before putting any ads or links to your money sites?

    I'm currently letting them mature for 2 weeks before putting any links, however some accounts get +500 followers in less than 2 weeks, so I think I might monetize them earlier.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Dude I have waited until around 1500 followers before monetizing anything... and still gains are modest. Not sure what niche you are (were) in though.

    Actual age hasn't made any noticeable difference, for me at least. These last 3 I've been working on have taken between 5-10 days to get to that point, all at once, no bots. Another has taken a year. There is no apparent correlation in profits between the 3 based on age. To be worth it you do need at very least 1000 followers (read 5,000). IMO it's the content (niche) that determines conversion. Monetizing too early is asking to be ignored on tumblr. I get lots of fan mail from girls that think I care...lol. But they buy my stuff and its a steady 20 bucks a day.

    So to answer the original question; at least 5 days. Monetize when you're comfortable with the followers you have, you may not get many more. Better yet maybe monetize without making it look monetized. Girls on tumblr are total nerds and wont click spammy links. You're better off with 10 blogs than 100. Use original content. My best blog has like 10 reblogs out of 1500 posts. Bots suck, auto-mation does not...

    ..Yeah tumblr sucks don't use it :p

    Edit: auto-mation less the hyphen is a swear word here. Nice!

    But this is irrelevant as it depends on your niche and how you monetise your traffic.

    If you are doing NSFW and not marking your blogs as NSFW you are going to get different results than someone in the cookery niche who is just linking to a squeeze page offering a free recipie pdf in return for you email address that will be added to an autoresponder where they will hit you hard for sales.

    Thanks for the suggestion guys. My blogs are nsfw. I think next time I'll wait till I get +1000 followers.

    OP, since you're niche is NSFW. My suggestion is make a site and redirect traffic from your blogs to your site. This way you don't have to worry about tumblr accounts getting banned and all your income is gone like that.

    I haven't tried any NSFW stuff yet, if you don't mind me asking what method are you using to monetize your NSFW blogs? Oh and a (usually) fast way to gain followers is by using those follow trading sites. I actually have an easy working method for tumblr using one of those sites, PM me if you want specifics.
