Attention: PLease read the post “What is the best URL shortener to make money?” to get a general idea first.
Now, in order to do this method, you must understand what Tumblr is. Well, Tumblr is a great social media site, and if you know what you’re doing you can make a lot of money off of it. To put it simply, Tumblr is a service that does exactly what WordPress does for blogging, but for microblogging, or tumbleblog’s instead. To fully understand what Tumblr does, you first need to understand what these so-called tumbleblog’s actually are.
“A tumblelog is a variation of a blog, that favors short-form, mixed-media posts over the longer editorial posts frequently associated with blogging. Common post formats found on tumbleblogs include links, photos, quotes, dialogues, and video. Unlike blogs, this format is frequently used to share the author’s creations, discoveries, or experiences without providing a commentary.” – Wikipedia
Using Tumblr to Make Money with Adf.ly
Of all the options for making money with Adf.ly, using Tumblr is probably one of the most consistent. All you need to do is have someone click on your posts in order to get paid. First you need to sign up for Adf.ly. Now put a link in the link shortner (you can use your Tumblr URL if you want). Now create a post and put your adf.ly link in the clickthrough link. Now whenever someone clicks on your post, you will get paid. A great way to increase your earnings even further is to link to a photo you posted on ImageTwist. This will effectively double your earnings per click. This is a simple method, and is great if you get a lot of clicks on your posts. The only problem with this is that it can be annoying to your followers.
There are some pros and cons about this method:
- A lot of people will click on your photos and videos (assuming they are interesting and you have a lot of followers)
- Most steady income source
-Low amount of $$ per click
-Cannot be combined with Amazon Associates effectively
