This is kinda part numero dos of my other Tumblr post on branding. As I was going through my Tumblr and the reg feed I thought of a few tips that make some fashion brands on Tumblr stand out in my mind. They…
- Stay away from carbon copies. Don’t post the same thing that you do on all other channels. Keep some content unique just for your Tumblr followers. What’s the point of a person following you on all channels if it’s the exact same, right?

- Showcase your style. Post the awesome visuals or photos that don’t really make sense for a full blown blog post on your blog, but really represents you in some way. I find that there are super rad photos I want to use, but they don’t fit, so I put them on Tumblr for inspiration.

- Measure. If relevant, include a link back to your site, or products and TRACK it. You’d be surprise what you can learn from your analytics. And….Google Analytics is free!

- Look back. Take a look at your Tumblr – maybe you see a theme going and it can be created into a great blog post on your main blog. Use Tumblr as a supplement to your main blog. It enhances your story, or makes your story better, or gives another insight into your brand or personality. Something that can’t always be seen in a few characters of texts or posts.

- Mix it. Use Tumblr in conjunction with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest (yes, I said it!) to express your point of view and stream of consciousness. Interact with all communities on each network to build out your following and relationships. You probably will not have the same followers on Twitter that you do on Facebook, or heck even Pinterest. Everyone consumes content differently.
