01. How Much Money You Can Make As a Post+ Creator?
Though there are many other ways through which you can make money on Tumblr like Affiliate Marketing, AdSense, Showcase eCommerce Store, Sponsored Content, etc, but Post+ is the builtin feature of Tumblr through which you can make money.
How much money you can make as a Post+ creator on Tumblr mainly depends on two factors like:
- Number of supporters/subscribers and their growth rate
- Whether your supporters like your content and remain as your loyal subscribers.
Post+ feature offers 4 pricing plans that you can choose and offer to Tumblr users i.e. $1.99/month, $3.99/month, $5.99/month, and $9.99/month.
Suppose you have 150 supporters and your Post+ subscription price is $3.99/month. Let’s do some calculations.
- Total Supporters X Subscription Price = 150 X $3.99 USD = $598.5 USD (Monthly Earnings).
- Monthly Earnings X 12 = $598.5 USD X 12 = $7,182 USD (Yearly Earnings).
So, from the above calculations you can get an idea on how much money you can make as a Post+ Tumblr creator depending upon your Pricing Plan and Number of Supporters.
