There's a popular opinion that Reddit is a 'tough place' for marketing and advertising, and that's correct.
All these red flags... but still, Reddit is a 'hidden gem', if you use it the right way!
🌌 There is a subreddit for nearly anything
There is a 99.9% possibility that part of your target group is on Reddit.
Different niches = different subreddits.
💬 Reddit has one of the largest communities
Reddit is big. Reddit is active. And you are probably not marketing there... (for now)
🍏 Reddit is Entrepreneurs' Garden of Eden
If you are an entrepreneur, then I can responsibly say that Reddit is the right place to start your research, analysis, idea validation and initial marketing
🎁 Reddit users are open for new and valuable things
The redditors are there for sharing knowledge and values, but also for gaining knowledge and values. If your product/service really brings value, it will be gladly accepted by the most of the community.
Don't sell to redditors, give them value and they'll come!
