Tumblr can help you make lots of money in case you have a large number of visitors to your Tumblr blog. There are so many ad networks (such as Google Adsense advertising, Adbrite, BuySellAds, etc) that are willing to serve ads on Tumblelogs to help you generate income from your blog.

So the answer to the question, how to make money with Tumblr is very easy. Have a sizable viewership, place ads to monetize that viewership. Before you get started with money making on Tumblr, you need to follow these steps:

Before You Get Started …

  1. There is no certain number or limit of daily users that confirms you to get yourself advertised online but one should have fairly good number of users that visit the blog on daily basis. Keep a proper track of your visitors to come with a number.
  2. If you yourself are a new Tumblr user, then it is always preferable not to start it right away. You should try to increase the number of visitors and increase your chances to get approved on some advertising network with the passage of time.
  3. Try to get a nice looking theme for your Tumblr blog. It will help you make more money. Besides it always holds true that the more professional your blog looks, the more attention it is going to grab.
  4. For users who aim to get popularity by posting some nude and objectionable posts alongwith their own posts. Beware that this is surely not going to work. The advertising companies will instantly take action against you and will result in a ban on you.
  5. Try not to annoy users with your ads. Making your Tumblr overflow with ads will only make your blog less popular with visitors and readers.

How to get started with some Tumblr Ad Networks

Here are the names of few Ad Networks that are easy to begin:

  • Google Adsense: Google Adsense Network is a very common favorite among the users. It works both as a primary and secondary ad network for publishers.
  • Adbrite: Try not to get rejected by Google by following the steps given above but in case you do get rejected you will always be catered by Adbrite. However, Adbrite may require you to have four times the amount of visitors as compared to Adsense in order to make money.
  • Amazon: Amazon affiliate network works for users who are into products or stuff review. If any of your related link results in the sale of the product, then you are certainly going to get rewarded by getting commissions from the sales proceeds.
  • Friend Finder:  Friend Finder can help you make lots of money depending upon the type of user you are.

These were the names of only a few companies that can help you make money on Tumblr. There are also some other affiliate programs available that can be good for your blog.

NOTE: This tip is not going to tell you about any code insertion to get the ad embedded into your Tumblr Theme neither it will tell where to get the ad inserted.
