A lot of people ask us what is reddit and how it can help you or your business. While initially, Reddit may look like a consumer centric website, there are many ways it can be used to help increase your business on social media. So what is Reddit all about?

What Is Reddit?

Let's get the description straight from the reddit website:

Reddit bridges communities and individuals with ideas, the latest digital trends, and breaking news (...okay, and maybe cats). Our mission is to help people discover places where they can be their true selves, and empower our community to flourish.

Reddit is a community driven website which allows people to have conversation about an unlimited amount of topics. It is one of the most visited websites on the internet and has about 250 million people accesssing it on a monthly basis.


How does Reddit work?

Reddit is split into communities called subreddits. There are over 1,000,000 individual subreddits available. Subreddits span from categories like politics and world news to home remodeling and construction. Whether you're a realtor, business owner, or a sports fan, you can join communites by going to reddit.com/r/RealEstate , reddit.com/r/smallbusiness , or reddit.com/r/sports .

Subscribers to these communities can post topics or links to topics and create conversation within the subreddit. Many times people join a subreddit to ask 'industry experts' for advice, and other times, experts post their knowledge on the subreddit to generate feedback and conversation.


How can Reddit help me?

Just like other social media channels, Reddit is a great way to connect with people in your industry or people that share your interests. One of the biggest mistakes businesses make nowadays is losing touch with their customer base. With Reddit, you can always be in touch and talk directly to people that could be your potential clients. 

Reddit also provides amazing content for you to post on social media. Depending on your industry, Reddit can be a great place to get ideas for your next blog post or your next marketing campaign.
