Blog Series:


We have just started to using tumblr, but have already found some items that others should keep in mind. Beyond the normal social media best practices of keeping it short and using video and engaging images when available, we've found a few areas to keep in mind specifically when talking about tumblr.com.

  1. Seek out like-minded bloggers and then follow them and then comment on and repost blogs that are of interest to you and your audiences.
  2. Make sure to add relavant tags.
  3. Photo albums work really well as a single post.
  4. Add links to your text and images.
  5. Use the built-in scheudler to space out your posts, but not too far apart as two engaging posts back-to-back can cause a buzz around the other.

As we learn more, we'll share.

If you are on tumblr, please feel free to comment with other suggestions and follow us.
