Web 2.0 Marketing Tip #37: The Perfect Tumblr Theme
By Ralf Skirr.
Tumblr can be a great platform for establishing your online presence as well as promoting your business. However, without a good theme to represent you and your business, it might look unprofessional and turn off your customers.
Ways to Get Your Perfect Tumblr Theme
It does not matter if you are leading people from Twitter or your articles toward your Tumblr account. What you always have to remember is that: first impressions last. If you want to make visitors stick around and keep coming back, you must select a clean theme that you can use on your Tumblr blog. Make sure that you create a good impression quickly. Otherwise, you risk losing a potential customer before you’ve had any time to present your pitch.
There are basically two ways through which you can get the perfect Tumblr theme:
- Select one of the available Tumblr themes. Tumblr offers largely clean and professional blog designs. These are very easy to use and install. However, you have to keep in mind that your theme will be similar to hundreds or thousands of other blogs.
- Use custom theme. Another option is to go to your Tumblr dashboard, and then click “customize,” “theme,” and then “use custom HTML.” You can then take HTML code from any site that offers free Thumblr themes and paste it into the form.
Themes are a great medium to express your feelings and your business’ purposes. If you want to make sure that your visitors turn into customers, then you have to make sure that your theme is appropriate and appealing.
