Background on Reddit

Reddit.com is an opensource website that encourages users to create communities, post content, vote on links, and share comments. This online community allows users to discover, categorize, and share useful content and information.

They are great tools to promote yourself as an authority by sharing relevant information and eventually promoting information about your business. This sharing activity elevates your online visibility and overall relevancy.

The basics of Reddit involve five things: posting links, reading content, rating content, joining discussions about that content, and finding subreddits.

Most of these are easy to understand, but think of subreddits as topics that content only links about said topic. For instance, if you’re looking for a constant real-time stream of marketing, it’s best to go to the /r/marketing subreddit.

You can even go further into the topic by checking out related subreddits like /r/business and /r/SEO. There’s a lot you can find on reddit by simply exploring further.

In this guide, we’ll teach you how to join one of the largest social communities on the web and promote your content in the process!

How to Create an Account on Reddit

Step 1. Start at Reddit.com.

Step 2. Register an account in seconds by going to the upper right-hand corner on the homepage and clicking “Register.”

Step 3. Choose a Username and Password (and email, if you choose) and click, “Create an Account.”

Step 4. In seconds, your new account has been created! Nice work.

How to Submit and Recommend Content

As we’ve said earlier, the great thing about Reddit not only finding new content, but sharing relevant stories in your niche.

Step 1. To get started sharing, click “Submit a New Link” underneath the site’s search bar.

Step 2. Submitting to Reddit is fast and easy. Just paste a link in the URL field you want to share. Enter a title or suggest one by clicking the “Suggest Title” button. Make sure you’re human by entering the code and click “Submit.”

Step 3. And done! Recommending content is even easier. Just click the “Upvote” or “Downvote” toggles next to any link you see to have your rating recorded.

We hope you enjoyed the guide. Happy redditing!
