I see Tumblr as one of the best marketing platform, yet I see so little influencers with an account, specifically authors. Tumblr is an excellent tool to craft personal relationships with your fanbase. There are several options available and the platform is flexible enough to work for virtually everybody.
Not convinced? Here are three reasons to market on Tumblr.
Tumblr can be as personal as you want it. You can turn on and off your ask box or change your messaging so that only blogs you follow can message you. You can have full conversations and discussions with your followers through reblogs, and, all in all, writeblr is a community.
I can’t comment for most other communities on Tumblr, but I am heavily involved in the writing community and I’ve found it rare that a disrespectful or selfish writer finds their way in. The writeblr community is passionate and intolerable to disrespect.
You can find loads of support through writeblr.
A bonus to Tumblr being a community, we tend to share things about each other. Not all of us, and it isn’t mandatory, but there’s a great majority of us who share personal things about ourselves in trade for the support.
Because of this, there’s an overflow of personal experiences and people passionate about getting the facts straight. You can be researching practically anything and get their opinion on it, whether by reading their posts, messaging them, or sending them an ask, all you have to do is search up the hashtag and the information is at your fingertips.
The information doesn’t just span to research. Are you having writer’s block? Are you having trouble writing a certain character trait? Are you looking for ways to include diversity? There are numerous blogs and posts that have the answers you need, and if you can’t find it, just ask. People will answer.
