Reddit Marketing 101: 5 Steps Ways to Drive a Ton of Free Traffic from Reddit


– Do you remember Digg? Well no one’s on Digg these
days, but it used to be popular. The new version of Digg is
Reddit, everyone’s on Reddit it’s one of the top 100
websites on the web. If you’re not on Reddit and
you’re not trying to get traffic from it, you’re missing
out, you’re doing something wrong, so you know what,
today I’m going to teach you how to generate more traffic from Reddit. (light music) The first thing you want to
do when it comes to Reddit traffic generation is
you’ve got to participate in the community, if you’re not
participating how would you know how to really leverage it? So by participating you’ll
realize what people like, what they don’t like. You’ll realize what content
works and what content doesn’t. The second thing you want
to do is join subreddits. What subreddits are,
are sections of Reddit. Reddit talks about everything
out there, but you know what they’re subsections on
fashion, marketing, even weed. There’s sections on everything
out there on Reddit. If you’re into Bitcoin and
Ethereum you’ll also find subreddits on those topics. Now that you’re participating
in subreddits and you’ve joined them, again you want
to participate in community see what they like in those
subreddits and what they don’t. The next thing you want
to do is be transparent. Redditers can smell
marketers from a mile away and that’s why most people
struggle on monetizing and getting traffic from Reddit. If you’re not transparent,
people are going to sniff you out and none of your contents
going to do well. The fourth thing you want to
do is replicate the content that’s already doing well on
Reddit, so if you see some stuff that’s doing well,
create better versions of it. Brian Dean has this thing
that he calls the skyscraper technique and he’s blogged
about it many times on his site backlinko.com in which he
discusses how if someone talks about ten ways to launch
your our Bitcoin version or Ethereum version or
(mumbles) or whatever you want to call it, then you want
to create something called 101 ways. In other words you’re getting
more detailed and detailed. Just like you’re seeing with
all these skyscrapers out there you see these big tall buildings
in the U.S. and then boom in the Middle East, someone’s
like hmm I’m going to pop up a building that’s a mile
high, it’s never ending. That’s a skyscraper technique
in which when someone already has amazing content out there,
you’re going to make your content ten times more amazing,
so much more so that they’re going to be like I don’t want
to copy this it’s going to be too much work. Now that you’ve created your
own content the last step is submitting. When you submit and you’ve
participated, you have this community, you have
this following on Reddit, you’ll find that they’ll
start voting up your stuff. It’ll start generating you
traffic and over time you’ll get more visitors to your
site, but there’s one caveat. When you’re trying to get a
lot of traffic from Reddit, you’ll struggle if you do what I do. If you go to neilpatel.com
you’ll notice I have sliders, popups, and all these things
because I want to collect a lot of emails. Redditers hate that, so
if you’re using Hello Bar to collect all of your
emails, put in there within the settings you can say
don’t show it to people coming from Reddit and by doing
that, the Redditers won’t be ticked off when they come to your site. But if your site in
general is very aggressive, what’ll happen is no one will
want to share your content, they’re going to all download
it and you’re going to get no traffic from Reddit. (light music)

  1. You are right, It's tough to make reddit people like usual content. I posted three well written articles and two got negative response, people attacked me aggressively for posting that content in their Sub-reddits. But one was liked and got picked up by the person about whom I wrote the article and she also tweeted it.
    More than 5,000 people came together on my website that day. That girl's boyfriend showed the article to his live audience (8k+) and someone made a video about that article. People still visit to my website because of that article from Reddit, YouTube and Twitter. That article almost went viral, just because of I posted it on Reddit and it was relative to the sub-reddit.

  2. HEY NEIL I THINK YOU SHOULD MAKE A VIDEO ON CPA MARKETING I SAW SOME COOL POSTS BUT NEED YOUR OPINION EVEN BRIAN DEAN MADE A POST ABOUT IT BTW VIDEO WAS COOL I AM USING REDDIT FOR 1 YEAR NOW

  3. Thanks Neil, I made an account earlier this year, haven't explored. And their UI isn't impressive 😀 what you think?

  4. Forget Reddit, bunch of cynical arrogant morons on that site! Better to target platforms where most people are merely cynical simpletons like Facebook haha

  5. Great advice. Reddit can be hard and you can get shadow banned if you do things wrong. Join the convo, add value and replicate what’s already working but do it some what better. I think most people are to quick to promote their sites or offers. Reddit takes time to build trust as well so if your account is new and you spam/promote to early they will sniff you out + they have bots that are smart that pick things up very fast. Do things right and you get masses amounts of traffic. Actually had my server crash because I had a post go viral and wasn’t ready for the traffic lol.

  12. Love it! I also heard if your comment gets upvoted enough the link within will become "do Follow."

    Hey, Neil, I'm trying to put together a content creation, and promotions service focused on the E-commerce. Using the tactics you've listed like Reddit, Pinterest and blog and forum outreach. I also do on page SEO. My idea would be to track KPI's for the target keywords I'm promoting then have a monthly worksheet for the client, so all the work I'm doing is transparent. My question for you is – who is doing this really well that I could replicate and how could I track the progress to show the real value in the service. Any direction would be appreciated. P.S I just liked and shared your video to an e-commerce facebook group. 😀
