    I want to experiment with Reddit.
    Do you think I might have good conversion for Software?

    What would be about the CPC on this network?
    What about the CPM?

    Anyone can share experiences about conversions?

    I have to say I've advertised on Facebook/Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat - but never Reddit, so I can't really speak on any numbers in particular. But it seems to me like the average demographic of Reddit users would likely tend to sway dominantly male.. millennial.. internet savvy.. thus making for a potentially perfect audience for your software product. My verdict is you might as well throw a campaign up and give it a shot and see what happens, nothing really to lose and a lot to *possibly* gain! ;)

    Cheers

    Pure garbage. Redditors hate ads. You have to sneak in your advertising in the comments

    I failed a lot in reddit ads since i was trying to use the same type of strategy in-terms of ad copy which works for Google and Facebook but it won't work on Reddit.
    To achieve good conversions on reddit make sure to ask a question in your ad copy which members would like to interact and comment.

    What product on planet earth you are going to promote to those shit heads?

    Reddit is a community for useless people who think they are the best in the world.

    I've read it's hit and miss really. Very inconsistent results and a platform that lacks reliable analytics.

    Better to post from a high quality aged reddit account and get fake upvotes and fake comments on it to get things going.

    Redditors don't pay much heed to ads, not even 10% of what they would to a reddit thread with tons of upvotes and high quality comments :D

    My experience is this can be super powerful. I'd give this a go before spending money with reddit.

    I've never had a good experience with Reddit ads, it just doesn't convert like Facebook does. The amount of clicks is also usually vastly different from Reddit's ad manager and GA.

    I tried, totally useless. I think promote your content on relevant sub-reddit is way better.

    I think if you can promote in Pint-reset is much better

    From a user perspective, I've clicked Reddit ads that look like natural posts and I've actually used some of services they're advertising i.e. Thread.

    However, and it's a big however... I think 90% of Reddit advertisements are absolute garbage. I usually look at them and think they suck. I wouldn't bother going down that route if you're spending good money on it. Maybe it's good for specific targeted subreddits that match your niche?

    Limited experience here, but to make it work, you have to really go as native to the platform as possible, which means spend time on reddit, get to know stuff around pretty well and get really creative with your ads. It's a challenging platform, but can work great for the right product/service

    I have tried it couple of years ago. Reddit people hate advertising.
    I was selling P.O.D (print on demand) t-shirts, it is completely useless. A waste of time and energy.
