Reddit is not the first social media platform you would think of when reaching your audience. However, it is a wonderful place to target an untapped market that you might not find on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn. In this quick guide, I explain what Reddit is and how you can use it to increase reach and conversions.
What is Reddit?
Reddit is a hybrid of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Most of the content found on Reddit is media-based, and a lot of users will use the platform to scroll through content from ‘R/’es’ they have followed or discuss varying topics and find answers to questions. An R/ is Reddit’s version of an ‘@’, so if I were to have Reddit, it would look like R/simonkingsnorth. The platform features the greatest communities for almost any topic you can think of, making it a reliable source of potential customers.
