What is Tumblr?

Tumblr is probably the simplest and most user friendly of any blogging platform on the World Wide Web at the moment. It was designed to be easy to use and has succeeded admirably. You can set up an account and post your first blog in a matter of minutes.

Best of all…it’s FREE!

Here are what some of the big names in the world of media have had to say about Tumblr:

“Tumblr makes blogging blissfully easy.” New York Times

“It’s blogging, the way blogging was meant to be.”  Fast Company

“Tumblr: Microblogging done right.” cnet

“Marketers trying to keep pace with Twitter and Facebook may want to check out another emerging social media platform: Tumblr.” BrandWeek

We can’t always put a lot of credence in some of the hype we read about new things online, but Tumblr seems to live up to its reputation.

Another plus is that Tumblr is growing by leaps and bounds! Since June of this year, global page views have increased from about 1.5 billion to more than 3.5 billion for the month of December, 2010.

Tumblr blogs have begun going viral on other social media websites such as Twitter, StumbleUpon and Digg.

If you have been considering starting a dropship business blog to help drive traffic to your site, build your brand and increase sales; Tumblr would be an ideal blogging platform for you!

Here are some helpful hints for using Tumblr:

  • Apply the KISS principle and keep your posts simple. You aren’t writing War and Peace or Gone With the Wind, after all. Blog posts are meant to be short, simple and snappy!
  • Use images! The blog posts on Tumblr or any other blogging platform do best if there is an image posted, especially something funny and catchy such as a meme type image.
  • Tweet your Tumblr post to Twitter. Another great way to broaden your exposure.

  • Use the queue system to schedule your posts so that you don’t have to worry about forgetting to post or needing to update with fresh content when you are busy with something else.

  • Use reblogging when desirable and appropriate. The reblogging feature on Tumblr lets you reblog someone else’s post to yours. It provides fresh content for you and passes credit to the original poster, besides putting your account into the notes for the original thread, which could help attract others to check out you blog.

Tumblr is super easy to use, free and really gaining ground! Use it to start a blog for your dropship business as part of a social media marketing strategy!
