    I have a tumblr blog in the "anime wallpapers" niche that has 833 followers. I have tried monetizing using services like imgserv etc.. but I feel it's way too little. Is this a bad business model and should I try doing something else? Or do I just simply don't have enough followers? To be honest, I used to work on it hard, actually the last time I tried to really blast the imgserv stuff was probably at around 500-600 followers, but even then, it was a lot of work for just like $0.12.. I don't think another 200 followers would make a difference. Nowadays it gets new followers everyday on autopilot, I hardly ever update it, but it still gets about 5 new followers a day.. just wondering if there was something I could do with it now?

    How many unique visitors does your website get each day? If anything, you can start updating it again and once you reach around 10,000 followers (still not enough, but it's something), you should start seeing more money.

    The amount of followers is a rather insignificant metric. Your posts need to get a lot of reblogs in order to grow. Hits from internal searches and search engines like Google are more important than traffic from your followers if you want to monetize. i doubt anime niche is good for income. You may want to try another niche and compare. Just my 2 Cents.

    Usually monetizing Tumblr directly results on ban, you should better send that traffic to one of your sites.

    Your niche is pretty competitive, so 833 is not serious. You should use some SMM tools to promote your tumblr blog

    continue to gain followers until you reach about 10,000 followers.You can get private proxies and make 5 or so accounts to gain followers faster.Make your own personal site and set up adsense or cpa offer. Thats your best option

    833 followers is not enough to monetize it.

    Try to increase your audience.
