Reddit has become the third most popular site in the world. The top brands are embracing it. The best communities are using it. And the smartest marketers are leveraging it. Despite the amazing potential that is offered by Reddit through advertising, content creation and distribution, the platform is under-utilized in the marketing industry. Why is that, exactly? Because far too many marketers are still terrified of Reddit, and a lot of that fear comes from simply not understanding what content Reddit users actually want. That's what inspired the Foundation Marketing team to do a deep-dive into what content performs the best on Reddit. In particular, we studied 6 of the most popular business-focused Reddit communities: 1. /r/Startups 2. /r/Entrepreneur 3. /r/Sales 4. /r/SEO 5. /r/Productivity 6. /r/BigSEO This post highlights our key findings & provides direction on what content you should actually be sharing and why. You can also download our entire data set that breaks down what topics, 3-word combinations, and post titles drive the best results in the business Reddit world. Check it out & let the team know what you think!
