    There are already quite a number of quality threads on this subject so do a search on this and you will be finding good info. I highly recommend reblogging other posts and including your Tumblr link so others visit your page. Make your page interesting with a good name, picture, and background. Put a title on it that suggests something about your niche that you would like to promote. Try to avoid spamming with affiliate links and try to mask your links with a shortener if possible.

    I run several Tumblr accounts within a few different niches. I usually reblog messages using the delayed posting queue and have around 10 - 12 messages total each day. As my accounts grow with followers, I slowly begin to insert my affiliate links but never more than 25% of my posts. You have to test. Then, retest. It takes time to develop a following but you can increase the velocity of this in a couple of ways.

    You need to interact with REAL people. Maybe send an occasional message commenting about a picture you saw. Use the like button and try to reblog popular posts. Make sure to use on-page SEO optimized titles and tags so you can be found in searches. Also be sure to utilize the added power of Twitter and Pinterest.

    Tumblr is VERY powerful stuff if you do it correctly and not abuse it. You can target different niches and high conversion traffic by identifying yourself with other members. It is a social networking site....be social...build trust...gain followers. Be sure to test different methods/strategies to find what works well for you. Then rinse and repeat!

    The main thing is, post quality content! Either write it yourself or buy some articles for your site.
