    Hey guys!
    I have never used tumblr before and am jumping in to build a following on tumblr to expand my personal brand that I will eventually monetize but I realized I have literally no idea how the hell to go about growth on tumblr aside from leveraging my existing following. I would really appreciate if someone shared the basics ins and outs of the platform to me and anyone else in this thread. <3

    I have some questions that will help probably help others brand new to the platform too:
    - What advice to someone completely new to the platform? (Dos and Don'ts, etc)
    - What are the standard methods for growth on tumblr?

    I have read that it's easy to gain a following on tumblr:
    - Is this still the the case?

    Any help is always appreciated. Thanks so much.

    Post unique content, put a "follow me here" call to action with your homepage link under your posts, like/reblog, follow 200 blog every day, be kind with your followers, submit content to bigger blogs and be consistent.
