Reddit as a Marketing Platform + Networking meeting
Event date: July 15 2014
Dorcas Garcia, Graphic Designer
The only way to market on Reddit is not to market at all. To be successful on Reddit, you have to genuinely contribute to the community. Keep in mind that it is very easy to get tagged as spam, especially when you are new and have low karma, which is your collection of goodwill gained by posting links and comments.
- Don’t even think about posting your own content until you reach 150 karma points.
- Always share others’ content first.
Once you’ve been around awhile, though, try posting your own links. Nelly suggests a 5:1 ratio of posting other people’s links to your own. And pay attention to feedback. If you start getting voted down, delete the post.
Enjoy the rest of the summer, and we hope to see you at our next event in September!
