StumbleUpon's not the number one choice of social media platform for many. Most digital marketers and social media managers' focus on the big social media networks like Facebook and Twitter, and of course, these two powerhouses boast much big user numbers that StumbleUpon can't match.
But StumbleUpon does have some tricks that you should check out. For example, it's one of the very few social media channels that send direct traffic to your website or blog - in fact, StumbleUpon's the 4th highest social media traffic driver overall. StumbleUpon has the potential to crash a website with viral traffic - and who wouldn't like 5,000 visitors to a single blog post within the first few days it was published, free of cost?
What's even better, StumbleUpon can keep giving ongoing traffic provided as StumbleUpon users (Stumblers) up-vote your content. This is the direct opposite to how long a social media update in Twitter or Facebook lasts, which can be measured in hours, at best.
Below is an infographic from YourEscapeFrom9to5 on how use StumbleUpon and get the most out of it.
