    Any threads to Reddit/fb/g ads appreciated

    No man.....

    The Reddit crowd wants free everything. They're anti-ads, they will give you a bad review for having ads, they're anti-capitalism while using iphones and browsing at starbucks sipping overpriced coffee.

    To sell stuff on Reddit you gotta make it look like it's accidental. Look at their home page...there's a subtle ad for a movie, a surreptitiously neat photo of a product, etc....that's how you sell stuff to Redditors. Otherwise the traffic from there is 100% freeloaders...they'll savage your bandwidth bill and not grace you with a single click.

    I heard free+shipping is banned. Also I don't think reddit will fall for dropshipping often. But if you have good products and ship them yourself it's probably great. A lot of ecom companies do well with reddit ads. They're very transparent businesses though, that's why.

    I personally had a positive ROI with reddit ads. I was able to find a loophole through the banned free+shipping by adding a 97% off coupon. I was able to make around 3-4 sales with each $5 ad, which let me re-invest back into Reddit ads, etc. However, this was only a few times and some ads only brought me 1-2 orders, so I stopped doing it, as it wasn't consistent.
