Likelihood to Recommend

Tumblr

It's well suited to promote retail, restaurant, and music venues. It can give potential clientele a sense of not only of your products, but the atmosphere and ambiance that your business reflects as well.
I do feel that it is limited in the relevance that it has to certain types of businesses, and like many social media platforms there is more quantity and less quality on Tumblr. However, this could be an asset in that your particular business's Tumblr could have an opportunity to stand out from the crowd.
Before using Tumblr to promote your business, its key to see if your clientele and the type of clientele that you are trying to attract would respond positively to Tumblr, otherwise it would be a waste of employee time.

Pros

Tumblr

  • Intuitive ease of use. It was easy to set up and get the account running immediately.
  • Simplicity. Adding text, pictures and video was easy.
  • Look & Feel. For the low maintenance approach we were aiming for, we were surprised that the site actually looked pretty slick.

Cons

Tumblr

  • Themes. Not a lot to choose from. I guess when it's free, you can't expect a lot of variety.
  • Videos. Occasionally, a video would take a long time to load or play.

Tumblr is easy to access and manage on computers as well as smart phones. It's fun and easy to use. I enjoy a lot of the other blogs that are currently on Tumblr as well and they inspire ideas and provide for a lot of engagement. It also handles gifs really well.

Tumblr is an easy to use tool. If you're looking for a simple platform that isn't complicated Tumblr works well. There are even ways to embed it to a company website.

Alternatives Considered

Tumblr

Tumblr was quick and easy to use and required very little set up time. When setting up the Word Press account to try it out, it was clear it was much more time consuming to get up and running. Blogger just didn't have a look we cared for.
