How to get traffic from Reddit?

Postby Rational Mind » 09 Feb 2019, 22:40

has anyone tried marketing on Reddit? I know the platform, however, I do not know how to actually market on Reddit. Just like other sites, dropping links does not work on Reddit. You have to build karma points. But how do you do that.

Reddit is more about making meme rather than marketing a business that can be seen as spammy. It can be done in the right subreddit.

Reddit is a unique platform. Dropping links does not work on Reddit. You will have to first build your reputation on site by participating in the discussion. Once you have enough karma points, you can start sharing your contents.

Can we open our subreddit related to site we promote and post our links only there?

yes, you can, however, the moderators can delete your content if they find it too promotional.

you can drop links if they're relevant to the post, but anything that stinks of spamming will get you banned, or even worse, shadowbanned.

You must be aware that Reddit allows users to submit anything in link form (links to single images, webpages, etc.), so you should be well familiar with your audience, to start with. Most of the Redditors are young and technologically inclined. Creativity and wordplay are important, so present the article with an interesting title and photos. Also remember that Redditors like hearing from real people, not “how to” posts unless the posts contain really creative images, so make posts that are original and either have a strong personal story or are completely factual. If you adhere to these rules you can certainly increase your popularity on Reddit.

I did when I had my gaming social network but it's not always the easiest thing to do. You have to be extremely careful with how you promote your sites because you can get downvoted if you are seen as just trying to advertise your site.

I think it is better to hire a popular redittor to post your links instead of doing by yourself.
