Is Tumblr Advertising a Viable Option for Your Company?

More and more brands are investing part of their advertising budget into getting their company’s ads on Tumblr, why?

If you’re not an avid Tumblr user or you’re unfamiliar with the platform, you may be asking yourself what’s a dash?

Think the Facebook news-feed with less annoying statuses and more awesomeness. Admittedly, like every site, it does have its trolls; but trolls love buying stuff too.
