Strategies For Making Money Off NSFW Tumblr Blogs

Tumblr is a very viral micro-blogging platform that’s adult-friendly. There’s a huge NSFW (Not Safe For Work) community on Tumblr. Tumblr also allows you to modify the HTML of the actual blog itself, opening up some unique opportunities for monetization that don’t normally exist with other mainstream social networks. Here’s some tips and strategies for making money off adult Tumblr blogs.

 

Using NSFW Tumblr Blogs To Drive Website Traffic

If you’re running a porn site, you can use Tumblr to drive traffic to your sites. Once the traffic reaches your site, you can monetize it using typical methods of internet monetization. This might include display ads, pop-unders, affiliate offers and more. This is the most “whitehat” (legitimate) way to make money off adult Tumblr blogs.

There’s multiple ways you can use Tumblr to drive traffic to your site. Here’s the most common methods:

Image Click-Through Link – Photoblogging is the most popular aspect of Tumblr. You’re able to place click-through links onto Tumblr photo posts. This is a great way to drive traffic to your site.

Post Description Links – You’re able to place links in the description of your posts. It’s possible to place website links here.

Links In Blog Description – Tumblr allows you to place custom HTML in the blog description. You can place a website link in the description linking to your different sites.

Depending on what you’re using to build your site, you might be able to automate your Tumblr posting. You might also be able to add Tumblr share buttons, allowing other people to share your content over Tumblr and do your marketing for you.

 

How To Make Money Directly On NSFW Tumblr

You can also make money directly from NSFW without needing a website to drive traffic to. There’s multiple ways to make money directly from NSFW Tumblr. These methods range from adding advertisements to your blog to making the image click-through links redirect to an affiliate offer. Here’s all the ways to make money directly from the Tumblr site.

 

Affiliate Marketing With Image Click-Through Links

It’s possible to set an image click-through to a direct affiliate link. Many adult affiliate programs have images that you can use for this technique. These images might be part of downloadable content sets, free hosted galleries (FHGs), pic of the days or contained in RSS feeds. Simply take one of the photos from any of these sources, pair it with that programs affiliate link and post it to Tumblr. Anyone who clicks on the link and signs up for the site will earn you a commission or revenue-share.

 

Affiliate Marketing With Banners Links

In addition to affiliate marketing through the photo posts, it’s also possible to add affiliate banners directly to your Tumblr blog. Tumblr accepts most HTML (They’ve banned certain known codes and words). Simply place HTML containing your banner image and click-through link. Some affiliate networks provide iframe codes saving you the trouble of having to build up the HTML code snippet yourself. You’ll make a commission off anyone who clicks on the link and signs up for the site.

 

Adding Display Ads To Your Tumblr Blog

You can make money by adding adult display ads to your Tumblr blog. Keep in mind that some ad types and some display ad networks aren’t allowed on Tumblr. You’ll know if the display ad network your trying to use isn’t allowed on Tumblr, because it won’t let you update the description. An error message will appear.

Tumblr has slowly started banning ad networks from being added to their blog on a site-by-site basis. Luckily, there’s a wide range of sites to choose from, so as one site gets banned, it’s possible to move on to the next site. In addition to adding display ads from an ad network to your site, it’s possible to add banners and links from adult affiliate programs as well. These banners and ads are less likely to get banned. If you go this route, make sure to pair the niche of the affiliate offer to the niche of your Tumblr blog for better conversion rates.

Display ads can be added to the blog Description area. The description accepts full HMTL so you’re able to copy / paste the code snippet directly into the description and ads will start appearing on your blog. You can also paste code snippets for pop-under ads into the header of the Tumblr blog. I wouldn’t recommend using model redirect scripts though, as Tumblr will ban blogs for that real fast.

 

Adding Affiliate Links To Photo Descriptions

Many affiliate programs will give you free hosted galleries or downloadable content zip sets to promote their programs with. You can use this photo content for Tumblr photo blogging. You can also use the affiliate link as the photo click-through link. When people visit your blog or see your photo in Tumblr search, any clicks will be taken to the affiliate offer. What’s even better is that if someone reblogs your photo, the affiliate link will remain intact and you can make money off the clicks on their blogs as well!

 

Make Money Selling Tumblr Accounts, Posts and Reblogs

It’s also possible to make money by selling the Tumblr account itself, or posting and reblogging on behalf of someone else. In order to make money this way, your Tumblr blog needs to have *TONS* of followers, at least to sell individual posts or reblogs. You can sell a Tumblr account with any number of followers, although the more you have and more activity you have, the more you can get for your blog.
