10 Reasons Why You Should Consider Maximizing Reddit for Business
Share

There is no question Reddit can give your business a boost. I think they had like over a billion page views last month, like literally. This is a great article written by Jesse Aaron who I believe does an excellent job pointing out 10 reasons why Reddit for your business makes sense. I would love to know what you think. Are you currently using Reddit for your social content and sharing strategy? If so what kind of result’s are you getting from the social platform?

from the article.

First, think of how vast the internet is, how impossible it is to reach every crack, corner, and crevice.

Now, imagine a place where millions of people endlessly sift through this vastness, promoting what’s worthy of the front page and removing what’s rubbish.

That’s Reddit.

If you’ve spent only a few minutes redditting, you may be thinking it’s a place for cute cats and ridiculous memes…

Which I can’t deny; however, Reddit is also a place for the president, for marketing Oreos, and just about anything else you can imagine. Reddit pulls over 60 million unique visitors a month and normally powers 6,000 active communities per day, ranging from science, music, and politics to specialties like tech-support and homebrewing.

  • I think you also have to consider having a “redditor persona” to blend in with the crowd, but you also have to sacrifice putting your brand into the too promotional level. I’ve seen a few posts sharing their experience with the product that are too obvious they are trying to market something. Just remember to put content before your brand: informational content > funny content > bland content.

    • Hi Ava,
      I personally must admit that I am not walking the walk yet when it comes to Reddit, but I am in sync with you on this. I think in general your comment applies to all types of content marketing on many different levels. I know brands are trying to promote themselves and products, but the focus should certainly be as you said on providing the value first and foremost. Thanks for your comment and for stopping by the site. Are you practicing any curation on any sites. We have a great community growing here and are always looking for contributors.

    I get more traffic using Reddit than with Twitter, Facebook, or G+. I can use some more of it, but will continue using it.

    • Hi Charlie,
      This is good to know. I have yet to try to capitalize on the traffic generating potential of Reddit. I know they can be a great source of traffic if used the right way. Do you have any tips for me? Thanks for the comment.
