    I am building my online business using gearbubble right now and primarily used facebook ads to promote my products. However, I wanted to go to other platforms to increase my marketing. Planning to invest time and effort on IG or Tumblr? So which one will you recommend?

    It really depends what your goal is.

    Instagram is better if you want to increase brand awareness.

    Tumblr is better if you want traffic to your site.

    I would just go with both and track engagement, sales etc.

    I honestly think instagram is way better than tumblr. Split test to see which gets more traction though!

    I can't do both at the same time it's very hard. I focus on one first and then go to other platform

    depends what your target audience is and what you are selling.

    But, the more social networks you are using, the better.

    Go for IG if you want to increase brand awareness (as mentioned above).

    But have you tried Pinterest?

    Nice. As long as you have time to do it, you should cover all social media networks
