    Redditors HATE marketers, but if you do it right, it's subtle enough that they might not even notice. Happy redditing all!

      Agreed. The content has to be top notch for it to add to the Reddit community and be of value

    I don't think reddit inherently hates brands. If you create something funny, cool, interesting, or valuable it'll get up voted. Also if it's about Bernie Sanders it'll get upvoted.

    I don't buy the "Reddit hates marketers" BS. Everyone hates irrelevant content that adds zero value to a particular niche.

    Redditors are usually people that seek knowledge. They tend to really love content that helps them fuel their knowledge.

    For me, Reddit is a very hit and miss website. I am an active member there and some one of my high quality posts just died where as some very small shares got 75+ upvotes.

    I think the key is to NOT use reddit as marketing platform but use it as sharing platform. If it is good honest helpful content, it will get eyeballs otherwise will get downvoted really fast.

    Somehow, this still strikes me as a little iffy. I don't think Redditors hate marketers; you just have to go about marketing in a different way. I forget which company it was, but there was a company that did an incredible job of reaching people on Reddit. I think they sold chairs? They simply engaged with people and answered questions.

    If you try to be sneaky about the fact that you're doing marketing, that's when you'll get burned.
