    I got many accounts on pinterest ranging from 50k-100k followers. I get hundreds of repins, likes etc. I have just started to take tumblr seriously but its too difficult to gain followers on Tumblr. Is it a good idea to drive traffic from pinterest to tumblr and gain followers. has anyone tried this?Also i want to ask if anyone is interested to trade his tumblr account with 20k+ followers with my pinterest account with 50k followers.

    Stay with Pinterest OP.

    Are you posting/queuing pictures regularly on tumblr with the correct tags? You should be gaining followers if you do that

    There are many platforms that you could be taking advantage of by simply posting a pin by using IFTTT. Each of your pinterest accounts has a rss found at
    pinterest.com/Your username /feed.rss, each time you pin, it gets updated. Each pin can then be sent out to other medias like twitter, facebook group, or make it go into your tumblr queue. You just got to set it up, and then everything is done automatically. This way you can spread your niche pinterest account across all platforms and gain traffic from here and there without actually having to post yourself. IFTTT is a monster :)

    Follow 200 people per day on tumblr and reblog photos and posts in your niche.And when you get more followers then start posting your own content. Tumblr is good for traffic, sadly the best niche for tumblr is adult. Stick with pinterest if you are in fashion or recipe niche.

    My Personal Opinion: Please stay on Pinterest only. That's easy to get traffic.

    From my experience, it's easier to drive a lot of traffic to my site via tumblr than pinterest.

    But, even though I don't get much visitors from pinterest, it still has a higher conversion rate than tumblr.

    I'd think that if you can target the woman who likes to shop by branding yourself either as a reputable store or something to do with a niche like cats, dogs, jewelry, or the 9 million other things ladies like then you're golden.

    Tumblr is great for driving traffic too. Not sure about conversions though. As stated above, tumblr is great for adult. You'll get tumblr followers soon, the first 500-1000 are the hardest ones to get, then you fly. Just make sure to post regularly + use tags.

    Tumblr also has this queue tool which you can use with picloadr and voila ;) enjoy
