26 Ways to Market Your Business With Tumblr

social media toolsHow much do you know about the microblogging site Tumblr?

Launched in 2007, Tumblr has experienced tremendous growth over the past several years.

Forbes reported that 120,000 new Tumblr blogs are created every day, totaling 86 million that drive 18 billion page views per month.

In this post, I’ll take a look at 26 businesses that have created presences on Tumblr and discuss the techniques they use for their blogs, while also introducing many of Tumblr’s specific features and lexicon.

How Can Tumblr Be Used?

Jason Keath wrote, “Not every brand works on Tumblr” and suggested that three categories of blogs may fare better than others: fashion, large websites and publishing/broadcast media. As we’ll see with the examples below, Tumblr’s features offer the ability to be more visual and less verbose.

Sharing a reflective thought…

A short one for the weekend….

2009 was a tough year in my life. Maybe you heard me say that before. During that summer I was pretty low on myself and about a lot of things. Looking back, I am so grateful for the friends, family and various things that came into my life at that time.

Believe it or not, looking back, as tough as it was to go through all of those things and as unpleasant as it was then, these things did make me stronger and I gained wisdom and experiences that have helped me to help others. I appreciate life more. I simplified my life. I now enjoy things that I previously overlooked. I enjoy friends, family, and laughter more than I did before. I have less ‘stuff’ but I am happier.

But , at that time and when I was in that state of mind, I remember having some really tough days. I also remember making some bad decisions, which made life even more unpleasant.

It was summer and I was struggling. Again, looking back, I remember lots of little things that came into my life that year for the better.

Recently I came across this blog by Wayne Dyer that I had printed out in 2009 and stored away. I forgot about it until now. I initially read it a few days after it was written – just before the Fourth of July 2009. At first I blew it off. Then I thought about it. Then I started to do it.

I found that thoughts like this, as well as others by other authors, friends and mentors really helped. It is all about Focus. It is about Momentum – building small successes, then larger ones, then more and more. Looking at and recognizing the good things in life, the things that work, the things that we have and want.

Maybe this blog will mean something to you too. I hope it helps. I hope you have a great weekend……

How May I Serve? http://www.drwaynedyer.com/blog/archive/2009/6

6/26/09 at 7:45 am |   by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

If you could have any job in the world what would it be? Here’s how I have handled the getting of jobs and how I have advised others to go about it. First, get a really sharp, clear vision of what you would like to see yourself doing. Then go to a quiet place in meditation and make conscious contact with God. The beauty of meditation is that you begin to get answers. Instead of asking for something for yourself, put all of your energy and attention into visualizing yourself in a capacity of serving, offering, or creating. It’s then that doors begin to open for you.

Lao-tzu says that doors don’t open while we have attachment to physical things for ourselves. What he calls the angelic guides or Source energy doesn’t enter our lives until we take the focus off “what’s in it for me?” or “what kind of job am I going to get?” or “how much money am I going to make?” and instead focus on “how may I serve?” Get that inner picture of yourself serving in the capacity of your choice and then be at peace with it. Take the focus off scarcity and lack and visualize service. That’s how Spirit works—when we’re letting go, when we’re not trying, not chasing. “Let yourself be lived by it,” says Lao-tzu. Go within and trust Divine timing. That’s how it’s always worked for me and I’ve always had more work than I could handle.

Namaste, Wayne

Financial Emergency – Do THIS to win back your future (new Tony Robbins film below)

Here is a great blog and video for anyone that has struggled financially in the past – or present.

Obviously this guy is really feeling things to the extreme and has an extreme solution in mind, but still, even with a less pressing issue, we can all learn from the video. I suggest that you do take time to watch ALL of the video. I know that it is long.

Financial Emergency – Do THIS to win back your future (new Tony film below)

(from http://robbinsmadanescoachtraining.com -Robbins Madanes Coaching Co.)

Ever had a situation come crashing down around you while you’re wondering, “Now how am I going to fix this?”

Of course you have. The question is: when something goes wrong – whether it’s a work situation, a relationship, or a financial matter how do you get yourself 100% PRESENT to address it? Because when human beings get stressed, we tend to hide. Then we create a story in our minds about why this bad stuff is happening, and why we can’t change it. You have to be SO careful – because this reactive mindset can creep up on you and prevent you from coming up with a great solution.

Most people don’t realize that many or most problems can be solved through a) presence and b) strategy. Everyone experiences obstacles. People who can be present with the problem and present with their outcome – they make use of everything that comes in their way. They see strategies that can be put in play, and they take action.

 There’s an old saying: “In crisis lies opportunity.” Because crisis destabilizes everything, it enables you to see situations in a fresh set of eyes – and reassemble what’s there into
something that is much more meaningful. And guess what? You pull out of the crisis, take advantage of your resources and later, you’ll find yourself grateful that the crisis happened.

 Why? Because it forced you to make things even better.

In today’s film, we’re going to see how one man who thought he was wiped out by a crisis – then arose to turn it all around within one hour. With Tony’s help, he got present, got a strategy, and found an opportunity… that had actually been waiting for him. Within months, he was much happier than he had ever been before. You’ll see him several years later as he shares his results.

 This film is special to me because we have received over a dozen emails from people telling us this film literally saved their life. I hope you find it helpful and meaningful as well.
