Why Tumblr?

Tumblr is a blogging and social platform that houses more than 132 million blogs and is among the top 15 websites in the United States. There are roughly 4o million subscribers.

It’s website explains, “Tumblr lets you effortlessly share anything. Post text, photos, quotes, links, music, and videos from your browser, phone, desktop, email or wherever you happen to be. You can customize everything, from colors to your theme’s HTML.”
Tumblr also gives you great control over your comments. You can turn them off if you wish. It was built for digital from the ground up.

#1: Dress to Impress
Many themes allow for a considerable amount of customization to give you a unique look that’s perfect for punctuating your brand image. Compared to FacebookTwitter,Google+ and Pinterest, Tumblr is much more customizable and doesn’t require any serious programming abilities.

#2: Interact and Share
In addition to posting your own content, find a blog with content you like and click the Follow button to receive its new posts in your feed.

#3: Think VisuallyOne of the first things you notice about Tumblr is that pictures dominate the landscape. In fact, half of all posts on Tumblr are image-based.

#4: Get Found With TagsTake full advantage of Tumblr’s easy tagging system. Start typing a word and Tumblr will suggest a number of possible tags.

#5: Build Your Network ConnectionsBuild your audience, acquire new followers and enhance your brand image by bringing exposure to your company profile.

#6: Stay ActiveLike most other social media sites, it’s important to maintain consistency on Tumblr.
Give it a whirl. To me its the best of Pinterest,Instagram and a blog put together.
