    I have a couple of Tumblr accounts that have accumulated a total of 263,000 followers and gaining 2000-3000 a week, so the blogs are very active.

    I was thinking about selling "Status Updates" and reblogs. The blogs have no specific niche, mainly teenage girls. Weight loss, makeup, and clothing seem to do very good.

    How much would reblogs and "status updates" go for to 263,000 active followers?


    *Also, do not ask me if I am selling the blogs, because I am not and will not. I am not offering this service until a BST is created*

    The best way to see what this service would be worth is to post offers and see how much traffic and earnings come in. Than, you can post these stats in your BST to justify your price(s).

    Are you selling the blogs?

















    jk. On a serious note though, I would try to send some traffic to a page to see how much power your blog has. Just use goo.gl to track the clicks. That might give you a better idea of how much this service would be worth.

    Edit: Veyron beat me to it ...

    Basically you should sell for around $50 per post then increase the price if the demand gets CRAZY HIGH for it.

    Try building up more followers then create a few different accounts so it doesn't get so saturated with spam post on your regular tumblr post. Advertise your other tumblr pages with that other blog and sell status updates on a few blogs. I'd go around $20 - $40 per status update.

    Can you post a status update? If this goes well I will buy the blogs or status updates? What are the demographics?

    Total Clicks: 626

    United States: 403
    Australia: 84
    Canada: 78
    New Zealand: 22
    Other Countries: 39

    Not bad stats at all. I'd buy a few posts from you for some of my cpa stuff. Pm me more information about it.

    I do not know how much you should charge. However, I am sure it will be quite a unique service in BTS, so if I was you, I would go for it.

    Put together a nice little rotation of CPA offers all paying over $50...and sit back, relax, and collect money.

    For one hour that it decent clicks - especially the percentage of US...

    If I were you I would post every couple hours, with several non promotional/CPA posts as well...then sneak in some CPA offers but make them look natural. When done right you will make more money and not have to deal with watching over a thread or processing orders.

    If you need help/suggestions for some nice paying and high converting CPA offers let me know.

    These are pretty decent stats for only an hour and with the right offer(s) could make a lot of money. I'd say that you could easily charge anywhere between $25 - $40 per post and think that even at this price it'd still be providing great value to your customers.

    Hi netmoney, thanks for your suggestion. What would be a good converting/high paying offer? I haven't really done a lot in the PPS/CPA field. Thank you!

    How unfortunate you're not offering this service without a BST.
    However, continue with the traffic updates as I'd love to see the total reach within a day. I have services very fitting for the girly niche & may test you myself.

    Diet/Weight Loss...I would avoid eBooks...find products...

    I would check offer vault and then sign up with the networks that have the best payout on the specific offers you think would do well. Test a bunch of them.

    Looking for 30 seconds I found these...

    http://www.offervault.com/affiliate...384/pure-garcinia-cambogia-premium-exclusive/
    http://www.offervault.com/affiliate...d/620383/pure-green-coffee-premium-exclusive/

    Both pay $62 per sale...and garcinia cambogia and green coffee extract pills are hot now...

    But raspberry ketone is super popular right now also....again, pays $62 a pop...

    http://www.offervault.com/affiliate...0385/pure-raspberry-ketone-premium-exclusive/

    If I were you I would test some....you might have a goldmine, but you will never know until you dive in. You might make 10 times what you would just making posts for people with a lot less "work"...

    I agree with netmoney that you should not sell the status updates. You will probably just kill the potential of the accounts. On the other hand I don't agree with his suggestion for diet/weight loss. Don't let me talk you down from it you should absolutely try it because it might just work for your traffic. I just think that with this traffic you might be better off sending them to free CPA campaigns such as a make up offer or something like that. Or get that traffic to Amazon somehow or to Adsense. Ideally you would have a landing page in-between. Make a real looking blog with pictures. Post this "cute dress I found at" and watch the traffic shuffle to your landing page (blog) this will let them click through to Amazon. Tumblr is great for traffic but try to get the traffic off of there to monetize it.

    One more thing, don't forget to cross promote other social media accounts. Get your followers to signup to your Facebook fanpage where you can post Amazon links directly. You get another point of contact with them and you will get some of their friends on there which you would otherwise not get.

    ^^ Good advice right there. I was half asleep when I pulled a few CPA offers....they pay well so it may be good to test them (it all depends on the age group) - but def do what HelloInsomnia suggested - that is much better explaining of what you should be doing :)

    Thanks guys! I'll try some today. The test offer maxed out at 1,163 clicks.

    We have to remember that the majority of my audience is teenage girls, so I don't know how well sales will do, but leads would work wonders. I tried that before with a survey site and had a lot is sign ups. But then again even at only .25% conversion, that would still do 2-3 sales.

    To all those interested, I could offer the service now as a test, but I believe it's against the rules to advertise outside a BST
