I am using Tumblr to drive traffic to my blog, I'll just share my post. The reach may vary based on the post and the followers we have.

Personally, I use tumblr.

However, I do not build a lot of focus on Tumblr for marketing strategy as the site has less users than it used to have along the past few years.

This does not mean that you should reject Tumblr completely, instead it, us it to bring more followers to your main target, such as your website. By doing so, you will spread options for people to find your website.

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Mariette

Default Depends on your product/service and how you design your Tumblr Page

I think it all depends on your product and/or service.
If you are a blog/ website owner, wanting more exposure then sure Tumblr is a great way to advertise.
It's a great way to add more clicks and interests, but if you're advertising clothes or food, it might not be as well campaigned.
This all varies though. I've known pretty great Tumblr pages dedicated for their unique bags that they sell. But they use Tumbr similar like any website, so they really changed their Tumblr page to create it more of their Brand.

I hope that helps!

Tumblr's best used for driving traffic to your website by means of using SEO-friendly keywords. 3-6 posts per week should do the trick.

Although most people don't take Tumblr too seriously, make sure to write compelling, quality content and by all means avoid plagiarism.

I see Tumblr as more similar to WordPress than Facebook and treat is as such. I use SEO and online marketing techniques. I treat it as an off-page site for my main websites.
