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’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.
The first thing 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 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 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 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 sitebacklinko.com in which he discusses how if someone talks about ten ways to launch your Bitcoin version or Ethereum version, then you want to create something called101 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 in the Middle East, someone’s says, hey, I am 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, and 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.
