    I posted several months ago a topic called: "How do I make money from a nsfw 20k followers tumblr?"

    There were some good ideas but they were all intrusive advertising, since then I pondered a lot on the idea of what I can do without disturbing the followers interaction with the blog.

    I was thinking to do what an advertising company does, charge people that want to promote their own NSFW tumblrs. There will be a top 3 tumblrs on my blog, each position on that list costing 25?, 10?, 5? (per week) and will also promote their tumblr inside my posts for 24h.

    Do you think this is something that could be achievable? Are the prices too high? Any better ideas on how to profit from it without being intrusive?

    The only way to know is if you try it out.. If you get many advertisers then your prices are too low, if you don't get any then they are too high.. In any case, I would use other monetization methods besides this one..

    I made a decent income on tumblr with a popular fashion blog I had, promoting strange/unique looking clothes and the models wearing them with a link to the store.

    I Would Suggest start selling posts of fiverr first.Good way to start and get popular .
    Then once you have clients slowly start to increase your price and give them a slot and if it converts will they would happily buy posts and ad slot.No Hassle NO trouble .Use Fiverr to get clients blog and then contact them for future reference.

    That's such a great idea... this way I can also see how much it helps the clients and then I can go on and build my own network if I still want to, knowing how much traffic I can give to someone.

    The site looks professional and I've heard about it in the past, but their sign in and sign up pages aren't secure. I hope they're serious.

    Thanks a lot! My first Fiverr, if I make one, will go to BHW!
