Got 258 karma points on Reddit from 3 easy posts!


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?
Let's share experience in comments!
