Have you ever thought of using Reddit for marketing? Nope? Well, don’t worry. It seems that not many others have either. But when you watch this course, you’ll wonder why you never thought of it before. I know I did. So, continue reading to get to know more.
One thing I noticed immediately is that Reddit has upgraded its look since the videos in this course were made. Don’t let that stop you though. You can still do everything Alex (the instructor) tells you to do. Or you can click on ‘Old Reddit’, which you can find under your name, and use the old site.
What’s in This Reddit for Marketing Course?
There are five sections to this course. None of the videos along. In fact, you can watch the whole course in less than an hour. And there’s lots of good stuff in this course. Alex is a good instructor and keeps everything simple, which is definitely good for me.
Here’s a trick to do in this course, and in all courses come to think about it. Watch all the videos, taking notes while the course goes along. Don’t do anything the first time you watch. Just write down everything useful. Then watch it again (remember it’s only an hour long), but this time take action. This is the best way to do online courses, IMHO.
Tips and Tricks, and More Tips and Tricks
A lot of this course is tips and tricks on how to use Reddit. This is great but don’t expect to have everything done for you. You’ll have to be patient and follow all the suggestions that Alex er… suggests.
The most important takeaway I’m getting so far is that you need to take care when using Reddit. You can use it to Market stuff, but you need to be very careful. This is not the same as Facebook or Twitter. You also need to seriously read the rules and guidelines. Very important!
Reddit for Marketing and Selling on Reddit
You have to wait for Section 3 to get to the good stuff on how to sell using Reddit. The fourth video in this section is well worth watching to get ideas. Interestingly, it seems that good content on Reddit is just as important as good content everywhere else on the internet.
Alex also gives you a grey hat strategy to use on Reddit. To be honest, I never think the grey hat stuff is worth it. Just post good content and you’ll succeed in a white hat way.
How to Use Reddit for Advertising?
And now we get to the final section, which is all about advertising. One interesting video is about Reddit Gold, which I think is the name that Reddit used before. I think it is now called Reddit Premium, especially since I couldn’t see Reddit Gold anywhere.
Alex mentioned a website earlier in this course cold Reddit List and in this last section, he mentions another site called Y Combinator News, which will be very useful to you in the future as well.
To finish the course, he mentions some of the many things you can and cannot do on Reddit. There’s a lot more good stuff, but in reality, the most important thing to remember is that you have to pay attention to the rules and regulations of Reddit. If you do that you will be fine and you will succeed.
Wrapping Reddit for Marketing Up
I think this is a really good course, especially considering the price. However, it is worth noting that this is not like other social media marketing. If you are going to succeed, you will need to put some work in. But then that is true of most things in life. To sign up for this course, click the button below:
