How to Monetize Brazilian Anime Fan Websites and earn $32,000+? [Case Study]

Anime website monetization in action: case study

Fan website monetization is flawless with Monetag! We already have one case study that proves it.

And here is one more!

Akame, a publisher from Brazil, began her website about manga as a hobby. Now, it has already brought more than $32k!

Can you do the same? Let’s see how it all happened.

Key Takeaways

About the Publisher and Her Website

The idea initially came from a group of friends who enjoyed reading manhwas – Korean cartoon comics mainly based on Japanese manga. The website began as a small local project, where Akame published manhwa translations, news, insights, and other information for anime fans, she did together with her friends. 

To create a website, they hired a web developer, so the initial investment was around 600 BRL (approximately 120 USD).

Later, the website began gaining popularity, and so ‘has become something of a responsibility,’ as Akame explained it. Now, the website owners add new content weekly.

About the Anime Website Promotion

Once the website was ready, our publisher began to promote it with the following methods:

  • Instagram. A dedicated account is mainly used for the paid promotion of new comics
  • Telegram channel. Used to inform people about website updates, including new publications, and also to promote manhwa catalogs.

As Akame shared, these two social networks were the key methods that helped the site grow. 

Interestingly, she doesn’t apply any SEO methods, but the site is still visible in Google search results under some low-competitive keywords.

To boost the website traffic and decrease bounce rates, our publisher refused registration on the website at some point. 

Overall, it took about one year and a half to start making good profits. From the very beginning, these profits were generated with Monetag.

About Anime Website Monetization

To monetize all these efforts, our publisher works with Popunder ads. As she put it,

Popunder, for me, is the most common and easiest format to monetize traffic.

She has also tried the other formats throughout her monetization journey, but Popunder really beats them all:
