This is a story how I managed to prepare my Reddit account to spread some word about our product there.
Yesterday I had a chat with one successful hacker and he advised me to take a look at Reddit. I've never used Reddit before and thought it's kind of "old-school".
However there are many subreddits with our target audience - developers.
To post there you need to have a karma and to have a karma you need someone to upvote your post or comment.
I used this simple trick to boost my karma on Reddit.
I took 3 recent pictures of street art that I really like and a picture of nice cat sitting in the bucket.
Then I posted these pictures to relevant subreddits.
One picture gave me 50 karma points and the other 218 karma points.
Now the road is open for more targeted posts. W
I will share the results tomorrow.
Anyone getting traffic from Reddit? What is your strategy?
