    I've been having a bit of success with Reddit. Is anyone else making progress? I wondering if it would be worth a large investment.

    You're definitely spamming this forum. Your Headings are just clickbait i guess

    I'm spamming because I have two similar posts, or because you're reading my headlines with optimism? I think it is potentially an amazing platform.. just because I'm not spoon feeding you some killer method or putting money in your pocket in the thread doesn't mean it's spam you noob. Don't be a pissy bottom feeder.

    Your title is misleading.

    If your title was 'Anyone had success with paid advertising on Reddit?' then you'd be ok.

    Look who's talking. Your thread is misleading just like your brain. Don't be a cry baby. I can feel your desperation that people should click on your PRO threads and you can make few dollars so that you can earn your Mcdonald Burger for the lunch. isn't it better to just work there and get that for free and not even spam like a illicit conman ?

    Made 500+ $ in three days in a subreddit by the name of /r/taxmarch by selling tshirts calling for Trump to show his taxes or whatever.
    Point being, you want emotion + trendiness as you are mostly dealing with Young adults acting like teenagers.
    Got a nice 7$ cut on every shirt sold, shame the subreddit never caught fire after their initial break into the front page.

    See that's a solid point. I was unsure of the demo there. Glad you had some success? Do you still do any campaigns over there?

    I own a Reddit sub of a bunch of trolls. The rules are there are no rules. LOL

    We get the occasional spammer, but Reddit limits how much you can post in a sub automatically. I have 0 restrictions up and even when spammers try to spam my sub, they only get 1 thread in.

    Nah, I'm putting all of my eggs in one basket as of now as I'm dabbling in content creation.
    just a heads up: Run 5-6 5$ ads at once and see what works best for you, thats the thing about redditors and people in general; You might already be counting your cash with that awesome slogan you came up with it, only to find yourself stunted by the lack of user engagement.

    My personal experience with paid ads really sucked. I got a positive ROI eventually but I believe that redditors are too accustomed to ads that they're just skipped. That being said as another user mentioned if you add an emotional, personal connection you may have more luck.

    I stick with the traditional black-hat campaigns which is what our company specializes in. Vote manipulation. Incredibly effective if you can do it under the radar and can EASILY influence the hive mind so-to-speak

    Give this man a cigar, you have to watch, and be damn quick about it, and there are carry overs.

    Been curious about this. What are the price ranges for ads and how are they priced, based on impressions?

    Didn't have time for that as it was a spur of the moment kind of thing. I used teespring I think.
