How to best get more Tumblr followers... using methods within Tumblr?
posted by bingo to computers & internet (6 answers total)
I'm one of the people in charge of updating and promoting the Tumblr feed that is connected to a new corporate website. I can do pretty much anything I want within Tumblr, although I can only advise the company on how to promote the feed anywhere else. There is a Facebook feed and a Twitter feed, and they are being used to call some attention to the Tumblr feed, but I have no control over those things.
What can I do within Tumblr itself to get more people following the feed? The two main approaches I'm taking right now are:
a) Reblog, "like," and comment on posts of tumblrs whom I would like to have as followers, and
b) Tag my posts with relevant and popular metadata tags that will make it easier for people to find them on search.
What am I missing?
