    Y'all know Redditors are a sensible bunch. They hate marketing and SEO and they are absolutely politically correct. In fact Redditors are the smartest, fairest, most sensible bunch on Earth and they get to have an opinion on everything. You know that, right? You know Redditors hate marketing?

    UNLESS it's explicit marketing for something liberal hipsters really love. Like Saturday Night Live or.....starbucks!!!

    Look at this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/5ud31c/starbucks_purchased_an_old_building_in_my/

    It is THE PERFECT Reddit marketing post.

    Brand glaring in your face? Check.

    Sock puppets mentioning other great stuff about Starbucks? Check.

    Sock puppets are top voted comments? Check.

    Do the liberal hipsters complain about this obvious marketing? WHAT? It's starbucks you dummy!

    THAT is how you do marketing on Reddit. Take notes about everything you seen on that post. That is how you get a shit ton of free exposure on Reddit.

    Ideas to get you started:

    • Something really scary and bad about Trump or anyone around him pretending like you're saving the USA by putting on a tantrump. Haha tantrump.
    • Something really politically correct, like you saved a teabag from drowning in your tea.
    • Something which pretends to defend equal rights between bananas and cats.

    Catch the drift?

    The hoardes of visitors will not buy a single thing on your site, nor will they click ads, remember they're saving trees by not cllicking ads (and by not having jobs either, cuz jobs kill trees).

    So there you go. Starbucks just did it again, a front page ad on Reddit for 100% free. Just copy the strategy and you can do the same.... Perhaps a post about Starbucks ;) ???

    yeah reddit is good for brand exposure and also for catching non-reddit traffic from Google. Google loves long and heavily upvotes Reddit posts, they continue bringing traffic to your site for ages

    Yes! Thank you for posting this, and here I was going mad / sounding like a conspiracy theorist when I would call out companies for doing things like this on Reddit! Great strategy though!

    if you feel the urge to expose someone's marketing effort, there's a subreddit for that https://www.reddit.com/r/HailCorporate/ :D

    They might never click on your affiliate links, but they are great for getting some traffic to quality youtube videos. My brother had one video go semi viral thanks to reddit. It all depends what you're marketing I suppose.

    Don't forget ben & jerry's icecream, the countless pizza places that advertise there via these stupid posts, the game launches..."OMG look this game scene where the hanging man is alive and kills everyone"...sock puppets jump in "what game is it AND WHERE CNA I BUY IT NOW".

    Also burger joints.....pixel perfect photos of food..... You guys know now hard it is to photograph food?? Try it. Get a burger and take a photo of it. It looks like shit. Yet on Reddit you get those professional shots of perfectly set up burgers....and a logo flashing inyour face. "Buy me now"

    Reddit is ridiculous for anyone over 25 years of age.

    Lol funny post.
    i despise reddit users. Got -20 voted down for saying Michele Obama was a man.

    I'm sure all of them will burn in hell some day.

    Well this can be done big big brands like Starbuck but if you post a picture of your company you won't get that many upvotes.
