    Follow blogs in a similar niche.

    Then go to those blogs in your niche, open their posts, and follow the people liking and sharing the notes.

    Follow 200 people a day until you get 5000

    But don't stop there.. the whole time you're following these people, continue to post good quality content (preferably images) to your Tumblr 1-10 times a day (use the Queue for this.)

    The following people technique has gotten a bit tedious with the recent changes to tumblr but I've written some Python scripts to speed up the process. You can also use a Bot but it's kinda risky since Tumblr might ban your account if they find out.

    If you have money, consider buying some reblogs on Fiverr. I usually get about 100 notes per reblog and at least 10 new followers for every $5 spent this way.

    $0.5 per follower, I would say you'll never make the money back.

    Just keep following and posting good content and you will see the followers come. I have started it with 44 accounts.. I follow ~150 accounts a day and post 50 posts a day. I get back a little more than 10 followers a day per account.

    I search the keyword of my niche in tumblr then I go to the newest posts instead of the most popular (because those account won't follow you)
    And then I like the posts. You can do it with the keyboard "J" and "L" (works on tweeter as well) or you can make an Imacro.
    If your blog as good content then you will have followers that way.
    Not more 1000 like a day and if your blog is new less than 500 I would say.

    GIFs do very well on Tumblr - better than still images usually.

    Go to Bing and type in your search term, then user the filter menu to only show GIFs

    Also, Tumblr has a high demographic of teenage girls. They like anything related to romance and boys. For example, if your niche is skateboards, put up photos with a boyfriend and girlfriend holding hands on a skateboard.

    Girls go crazy over this kind of thing:
