Here are a few quick tips to remember while posting on Reddit:
Become a valuable member of subreddits that interest you – Join all the popular subreddits in your niche and be a part of discussions that interest you. Post insightful and helpful comments on a regular basis to gain karma.
Don’t tout your own horn – Reddit users can smell self-promotion from a distance. Marketing subreddits, in particular, are vary of such antics. In order to promote your content, you need to gain enough respect (aka karma on reddit) before users start taking your content seriously. When you do post links, follow the 80:20 rule – post links to third party content 80% of the time, and the remaining 20% can be from your own blog or website.
Follow the rules and guidelines – As mentioned earlier, each subreddit has its own set of rules and guidelines. You can find these rules in the sidebar of each subreddit. Check them before posting anything on a new subreddit.
Don’t get distracted – The world of social media is full of distractions. Reddit is no exception. Before you know it, you’ll see yourself wasting precious time on subreddits such as /r/photoshopbattles or /r/videos. We suggest you use an e.ggtimer limit of 15-20 minutes and ensure that you don’t exceed the time limit. Make sure the time you spend on Reddit is to your advantage.
