    hello everyone,

    I was wondering how you could make money with tumblr.
    I've never seen a tumblr blog with adsense before, and you also can't do paid posts when it's just a picture tumblr blog.
    So is the only way to earn money with tumblr via affiliate marketing with pictures and the link in the description?

    I would be glad for any thoughts, experiences or suggestions :)

    I was under the impression that Tumbler was a blog platform on which you could publish your blog however you want. I had no idea AdSense wouldn't be allowed on it. Can someone share a link to the Tumbler info on BHW? Also I know people keep saying we are supposed to use the BHW search button, but it doesn't always give me what I need.

    Tumblr is great for traffic, I haven't tried promoting any products directly through it. I'll tell you this much, tumblr helped my latest site go viral a day after it was launched. I hit a new popular trending niche, started a website for it, connected tumblr to my wordpress site using an autocross post plugin to do all the work for me on tumblr. In that plugin I targeted all the trending/popular channels(#) and set them to be targeted in every post.

    Maybe this will give you some idea's and help you think outside the box a bit, tumblr is great for targeted traffic, I now make a couple hundred a week from tumblr traffic alone. Pretty much the same concept as some of the twitter methods.

    P.S - I'm using tumblr for adult traffic :)

    Amazon links maybe? Don't know if they allow them, but that would be an option if adsense is not.. Another way would be to funnel the traffic from tumblr to somewhere where you can monetize it..

    thanks for your help, I think you're right you can easily promote a different site with your tumblr traffic

    yes i thought about amazon too, but I'm afraid most of the time people just want to look at pictures of girls, cars or landscapes and not buy anything (unless it's a fashion blog. that could work)

    Product Reviews linking to an affiliate product on amazon or other. JuicyAds, AdChoices, X-Art Affiliate (number of dating and adult affiliates if thats your niche). You can sign up for a host of products, just start searching on G in your niche, take the top few companies and scroll to bottom of page, 8/10 times they have an affiliate program. Target your audience, sign up for the affiliate programs and go for it.

    I've already got a soft-adult themed blog with 1,400 followers in 45 days (i dont follow anyone), about 3,000 page-views a day, that I am interested in trading out if anyone wants to chat about it, let me know. I have never advertised on it at all.

    yes i thought as well that cpm would be the best strategy for tumblr, and i found madadsmedia,
    but I'm still waiting for my blog to be approved.

    I'd be happy if anyone could share another cpm method though

    I think he already answered it. Post porn.

    Although you have to careful with adult-related things now since Tumblr is getting sued. They allow hosting of adult photos, but not videos.

    Yes, mine isn't "porn" technically, its soft more artistic nudes and models. No men, no penetration, or intense themes. Mainly see-thru clothing, lingerie, models, topless, fitness girls, high fashion. etc.

    You just have to make sure to tag tag tag tag your pictures properly. It's now been about 50 days, the blog is already a PR2, 500-800 uniques a day (50 or so of those from google search engine), and about 3,500 pageviews a day, and 1,500 followers. Still trying to sell it though because I don't even have time, just don't know how much it's worth since it's a tumblr. haha

    Nice! Is that for 1 Tumblr blog or many? How did you get all your followers?

    I've been trying to make income from Tumblr for almost 2 months now with no success. It probably has to do with the niches I chose and the fact that I don't 're-blog' very much.

    I made $50 in about 2 months from Adultfriendfinder PPC with 1 Tumblr account. If I had made 200 more Tumblr sites and did the same amount of work on each I would have done fine. the only thing is doing it all manually, you could never make it as profitable as you'd like(can't live my life on Tumblr lol), especially with AFF PPC. The time vs the payoff would not be worth it unless you could automate everything. Porn is huge on Tumblr, not really many limits other than time. I did start trading traffic in adult blog networks though and everyday I get about 500+ page views daily and growing. One thing I can say is that I am getting plenty of new followers everyday. just not sure how to really monetize it, probably going to use an adult PPC eventually. I'm a noob and at least I'm trying. I did get paid from AFF to my Paypal a couple weeks ago :) But, open to suggestions as well. You know we need instead of TweetAttacks, we need TumblAttacks!
