How to Become a Reddit Viral Marketer in 2022

Many people think of Reddit as nothing more than a place to waste time and look at funny pictures, but in actuality it’s one of the most powerful social media marketing tools available to businesses today. If you want to get your message out there, Reddit can help you take it viral and create buzz about your brand with the power of user-generated content and peer-to-peer promotion. The possibilities are endless when it comes to what you can do with this free platform, so learn how to become a Reddit viral marketer in 2021 by following these steps!

Going Viral on Reddit is Easier Than You Think

In recent years, various organizations have taken advantage of Reddit’s community and its simple but effective posting interface. Some post it as self-promotion for products or services—but those posts usually don’t go viral. The point is that if you want to market your business through virality, you can find success on Reddit by following a few simple steps: 1) Write posts that are relevant to your business or brand. 2) Look at similar posts in your niche and analyze how they were successful (or not). 3) Use engaging headlines and pictures when possible. 4) Give people something so good that they’ll want to share it with their friends, family members, etc.

A Marketers Guide to Reddit

First, let’s make sure we are clear on what reddit is. It is essentially a social media site where people can post links or content and comment on that content. There are separate communities (called subreddits) for all sorts of topics. The top posts (as determined by upvotes) on each subreddit form an aggregate list, called The Front Page of The Internet - because it reaches such high traffic levels, they have decided to show an individualized selection based on where you live. As you can see, there are so many benefits from using reddit and there are hundreds of thousands of people using it daily! But how do you actually get involved? Let’s talk about how some marketers got their start...

Quick Start

When posting on reddit, your best bet is to follow reddiquette (the unofficial set of guidelines for using reddit). There are certain subreddits you can use as a shortcut if you just want to post something and have it go viral. Make sure your content relates directly or indirectly to reddit. For example, if there's been an upvote about cats on r/aww for 3 days in a row, that means r/aww might be sick of cute cat posts right now. Post something totally unrelated like: Here's how I fixed my broken car door... or What do you think of my short story? Then post your product/website link at last! Be ready when people comment!

Reddit Marketing in 2022

So how do you actually take advantage of all that attention? While there’s no single blueprint for creating compelling content or pitching it properly—and still having it be met with enthusiasm—there are some tried-and-true methods. This post will show 12 real examples of campaigns and explain how they were marketed using timeless techniques that could easily be applied to your next viral-worthy effort. [12 Examples included]

The Advantages of Reddit Marketing Over Other Social Platforms

There are many advantages of using Reddit as part of your marketing strategy. Although Facebook and Instagram may be more well-known, they also have far more restrictions when it comes to promoting your business or getting ahead through viral content. On Reddit, you’re less likely to get caught in spam filters and can directly target those who are interested in what you have to offer. There is one caveat: Due to recent changes on the site, many marketers avoid paying for advertising on there; instead, they rely on generating organic content that takes off by itself.

The Best Times To Post On Reddit For the Most Traffic

There are many good times to post on reddit, but when do you find that there is an influx of traffic? I’ve worked out a few schedules based on having viewed traffic reports from major subreddits. Traffic tends to spike at about 3:00AM Central Time for most subreddits (assuming you are posting in America). These spikes can reach 20% over your average daily traffic numbers. The next spike happens around 11:00-12:00AM central time and then again between 7:00PM and 8:00PM central time! These are great times for getting exposure because your audience will still be awake. It seems as though /r/talesfromtechsupport has larger spikes between 8pm and 10pm (because most businesses aren’t open after 10), while other subreddits have more consistent bumps throughout their day – all depending on who their main audience is.

The Best Subreddits for Getting Massive Exposure

Subreddits are one of Reddit’s most valuable and least understood resources. The problem is, there are simply too many subreddits to follow. The solution is simple, though: figure out what kinds of content each subreddit finds valuable and optimize your posts accordingly. Doing so will lead you down an often dizzying path from obscure corners of subculture to genuine fame and real success. To help you get started, here are some of my favorite reddits for getting exposure on Reddit: /r/marketing, /r/startups, /r/content_marketing, /r/web_design & probably about 100 more that I can’t remember offhand!


The internet has been changed forever. And it’s all because of you. From now on, get ready for fame and fortune. Have fun! Take care! Stay healthy! And don’t forget - always wear sunscreen! Enjoy your time in the spotlight, because you will be there for quite some time. (Hell, I might be stuck here for eternity). Never lose sight of what got you here, though: always keep evolving and growing as a marketer and as a person. The world is your oyster - go explore it.
