    So i'm currently working on building a large follower base on both websites. I'm wondering which one is more valuable for marketing and to sell at the end.

    A Pinterest account or a tumblr account? And i'm talking if both of them had a huge amount of followers. Like 500,000 for each of them.

    In my opinion Tumblr is a little over saturated right now, but still VERY useful. Pinterest however has became WIDELY popular in a short amount of time. So, honestly, I'd say Tumblr is more worth it if you have multiple accounts. Otherwise, use Pinterest.

    That's very true. I forgot about Instagram. +7 rep for that. Good call, HoNeYBiRD

    Honestly they're all pretty similar... Instagram is good since everything is become extremely Mobile heavy these days

    But your best bet is to still just do all three of them that's how you'll get the most $$$

    What's your niche: porn or lampshades? You won't get far with porn on pinterest. You won't get far with lampshades on tumblr.

    Their are a few overlapping niches that work for both, but usually one is more suitable than the other.

    Depends what you're looking for.. One is quarter to mid life gals and the other one is a bunch of horny teenage boys.

    Absolutely, you need to know your market and who you are selling too. Pinterest for example is 100% visual so nice photos of clothes/food and luxury items go down well.

    Yes, it depends on you market and niche and target audience.
