    I just got a client who wants me to get their tumblr blogs going. Shame I have no clue about traffic generation and possibly over promised :)

    OK thats not totally true I have done all the usual tumblr stuff of updating a few times a day reblog and like relevant posts and blogs but it needs a something to get followers faster and of the right quality.

    Would a special tumblr discount offer work? I can convince them to do it but I still need the followers to make it happen.

    They have a very small niche and a few good products so I am hoping that over the next couple of weeks I can get them over 100 sales.

    You want to ramp up. You need more activity volume to do this more quickly on Tumblr, especially more original posts.

    Original content, or content which is new to tumblr, with relevant tags, will get picked up. Post more often to get more visibility - with good tagging this keeps you visible in search.

    Inevitably some people will follow/like/reblog, and you can follow people that interact with your posts. Reciprocal follow backs are common, since if you have good content it will attract genuine targeted interest.
