    I've always thought of getting back into Tumblr so I went looking on Fiverr for services to gage the market and the only gigs offering followers are at a maximum of 200, otherwise it's just people saying they'll reblog your post to their 100K followers.

    Are there any bots? I certainly haven't heard of any. Is there a reason for the amount of followers people can provide being so small?

    There are plenty of bots both free and paid. There is a search box for a reason.

    Thanks, I did use the search box.

    The main question I was asking was why isn't selling accounts or followers as big as on Twitter and Instagram? I believe, that question has never been answered nor asked on this forum until now therefore I opened this thread.

    A couple things you need to know about tumblr bots ....

    1. Just about all accounts are ghosted for a couple days after first activity.
    2. Try going manual on tumblr before you even consider a bot. There are several threads here showing legitimate manual efforts on tumblr. Knowing how to do it manual makes for effective botting later.

    Yes I'm definitely going to continue a blog for a while, it still has about 20K followers and I haven't posted in two years so that's a starting point. Are you the owner of xTumble?

    That's a good starting point. I don't recommend automating task on money accounts anyway. xTumble is better purposed using thousands of accounts each doing very minimal efforts. The power is in the network, not the individual account. In your case you have a nice account started with 20k followers so you should serve the audience what they are looking for and grow it organically.

    I see, so xTumble is designed for promote other people rather than yourself? Thanks for the advice!

    You can use it to promote your offers across a network of accounts but it's not good for loading 1 account into the bot and raping it. Power in numbers.

    Totally agree with zenoGlitch. I wouldn't go for a bot unless you have a ton of accounts to manage.

    Myself I am only using the Tumblr Queu bot by fatboy (either paid or free version works, I went for the paid to support the developer - it keeps him motivated to come with updates). Beside that I am reblogging and adding related Tumblrs.

    There are bots about, it all depends on what you want really - for starters, I would suggest PMing Michael8t6 and joining the Tumblr Skype group, lots of knowledgeable people in there that can help you on your way :)

    I'll definitely keep up the manual posting and tagging then, it's a topic I enjoy myself so it's not exactly a chore!
    Thanks for the suggestion! I'll hopefully see you in there soon!

    They only do adult content though. So if you are into Adsense, the Skype group won't be able to help you.

    With 20 000 followers you can make some easy money using mylikes. If your followers are mainly US, you will be able to make some easy bucks everyday without any problem mate.

    That's what I'm running at the moment but I'm hoping to reach 100K this year so I'd be looking at something with bigger commissions.

    I see, mine's a photography blog of landscapes and wildlife mainly containing photos I've taken or reblogged but it would be interesting to see what other people are doing.
