Tumblr.com to add “sponsors to posts, this is a move for Tumblr advertising. Its about time that Tumblr does something with their own advertising space on the website. Tumblr.com numbers are pretty impressive. Tumblr.com website numbers:
- Posts per day70 million
- Monthly pageviews17.5 billion
- Audience141 million
Now if you ask me those are some awesome numbers and they should start getting their own sponsors for the website. I can’t wait to see what they roll out with. Tumblr currently lacks an ad sales force, but Derek Gottfrid, the company’s vice president of product who currently oversees revenue, said in the Wall Street Journal article that the company plans to build a small ad sales team. “You should expect a slow build,” he said.
They have also come out to say that they are looking for some of the world best media marketers to help them come up with some creative ideas for their advertising. So if you have game that would love to talk with you, to see what you could do for them they want to get the most exposure out there.
And if you have a tumblr account which I am guessing that most people have a Tumblr profile or at least know what Tumblr is, this could be another revenue stream for all you Tumblr blog people so keep your eyes and ears open because I feel a publishing opportunity close buy.
If you would like to talk with Tumblr here is where you go to start the Sponsors page conversation.
