Growing your business via Reddit

One thing I've noticed again and again when talking to founders is that so many of them are scared of promoting their business on Reddit.

They had a bad experience once, got their post taken down or got banned from a sub, and don't come back to the platform.

It's a shame because the founders that get Reddit get such great use out of it.

I've been on Reddit for almost a decade, and decided to write up my tips for startup founders that want to leverage Reddit. If you'd like, give this post on growing your startup on Reddit a read, or AMA anything here in the comments.

    Reddit is a great opportunity to build a business. My project legendsverse.com has crossed 120 users and made 2K in less than a year using only one reddit sub.

    Thanks for the tips! I began attempting to promote our product with Reddit this week and felt pretty clueless but was encouraged to get about 40 visitors. Excited to try your suggestions!

      Glad it was helpful! Yes there are a ton of subreddits for product makers and product managers, I'm sure you can get some good traction there. If you have any questions on navigating Reddit, feel free to ask!
