Reddit’s Self-Promotion Conundrum


Reddit Self Promotion

Here’s where we get a little snobbish. Reddit has never been a good place to promote your own interests unless you’re a celebrity. That’s all there is to it.

This stems from a heartfelt plea from James Andrews. He made some incredible points. He deserves to be able to promote his new website, especially considering that it’s promoting indie bands, they get most of the money, and charities get money from the endeavor as well. Others with similar sites have been allowed to self-promote. Why can’t James?

The reality is this – for every “James” on Reddit, there are 100 others who would take self-promotion to the extreme. There have been so many times when people get busted either getting paid to promote or promoting their own websites. Even today, there are plenty of marketers doing it on Reddit. As much as we hate to throw the baby out with the bathwater, allowing people like James to be the exception would open up a can of worms.

With that said, we can promote whatever we want on our own website and his website is worth promoting. Check out The Goodpack.

Here’s his video.
