How To Drive More Traffic From Tumblr (With Illustrations)NullyList
If you think that Facebook is the only favorite social networking site in America, then you are wrong. Because Tumblr is the favorite social network of the youth of America and it enjoys more regular visits from the Americans under age 25. Tumblr actually has two tools, microblogging tool and social community, which make it very unique and popular among other social networks. Moreover, it’s very easy to use and it can work on every mobile. In Tumblr, each user has his/her own Tumblelog where they can publish short posts of text, images, quotes, links, videos, audio and even chats. Furthermore, anyone can reblog a Tumblr post of another user’s, like other user’s content and comments.
Today, we will go into depth in Tumblr to demonstrate how you can generate traffic to your Nuttylist site.
Go to tumblr.com
If you are a tumblr user, you can log in. If you aren’t, then press on “Get Started” button to create an account.
Fill the required info, write your Email address, password and username, and then hit Sign-up.
Add your age and then make a check on “terms of service”, and press next.
After that, confirm that you aren’t a robot and then press on “Almost done” button.
Now, select 5 interests or more, and try to select what is related to your Nuttylist niche.
Congratulations, you have successfully created your tumblr account and now you are in the main page.
The first thing you must do, is to edit your appearance. It is very important to put your own pictures to befriend other users. So spend some time to edit your profile before you start participating in tumblr.
To edit your profile, click on the account icon in the upper right hand side and then choose “Edit your appearance” from the drop down list.
Press on “Edit appearance” and then add a cover photo, your personal picture, write a description and as we mentioned before spend some time to adjust other options in your profile.
After you finish this step, it is the time to follow other users in your niche, you must follow them to find good content to repost. So you can take a look for the blogs which post a lot in a regular basis.
Go back to tumblr main page, and in the search box, write a keyword that is related to your Nuttylist niche. Let’s write “Animals” and hit enter.
You will find a lot of animals’ blogs in this niche, so try to follow at least 100 blogs at first.
The next step, you should reblog (repost someone else’s content on your Tumblr blog) good content from 1 to 3 times a day.
In order to do that, you have to find some good content in the blogs you have followed and then repost them.
Of course it is a headache process, so Tumblr facilitated this issue by creating what is called “queue”.
Queue enables you to set a certain amount of posts to automatically publish them throughout different times of the day.
Now, go to any blog you followed and press on it.
Let’s say that you find this post good for replogging. All what you have to do is to press on the reblog icon beneath that post.
Now, add caption and some tags.
And then press on the little down arrow button beside “Reblog” and choose from the drop down list “Add to queue”, and then hit queue.
You can follow this strategy and fill the “queue” with hundredth of posts. Don’t put your Nuttylist content until you increase your followers. As we mentioned above, try to reblog 1-3 posts a day, when your audiences reach approximately 1,000 followers, start reblogging 3-5 posts a day.
It is important to manage the schedule and the time you want to reblog. To do that, press on your account icon and choose your own blog.
And then press on “Queue” in the right side bar.
Now, manage your queue and specify the times you want your post to be posted in a day.
We know that filling up your queue with tens of posts is a lot of work and it needs a lot of time, so we suggest to determine a particular day in the week to complete that mission for the rest of the week. By doing this, you can save a lot of time for the other social media platforms.
Now, after you get followed by Tumblr users, you can start promote your own Nuttylist articles, and here is how.
In the Tumblr main page, press on pencil icon on the right hand side.
A new window will appear with different kinds of icons. You can choose from them what suits you. But remember to add call-to-action under any one of them.
Let’s say, we are going to choose a link, so press on the link icon.
A new window will open to submit your link.
Now, go to your Nuttylist site, and choose the article you want to submit into Tumblr and then copy the article URL.
Then go back to Tumblr and paste the article URL in the box.
Add a description.
Now add Call-to-Action. You can write under your description some phrases like “See more photos like this” or “See more inspirational posts” or “See more posts like this”.
Make sure to highlight the phrase and choose, “Headline Icon” to make the font bigger.
After that, choose the link icon beside the headline icon to add your Nuttylist URL.
Now, add your Nuttylist URL and press done.
After you finish, don’t forget to add some tags.
And then hit Post.
When you hit post, your final post would be like that:
