How to Build a Passionate Fanbase with Reddit

Reddit participation is like the guerilla warfare of social media marketing. You need to fully understand the environment and culture of the site to have any semblance of success.

Thank You (2016 Edition)

Another year in the bag! As we do every year, I’d like to look back at the year by-the-numbers and see how we did. It’s also an opportunity to say how grateful I am to you all. All things considered, the web design and development community is a pretty great one. Lots of sharing and caring. I consistently enjoy working on this site and being a part of the sub-community that happens here. Statistics There were 77 million pageviews this year, up from 73 last year, making it an all-time record breaking traffic year again. The other numbers that Google Analytics coughs up are Sessions (56 million, up from 51 million) and Users (steady at 21 million). No significant peaks throughout the year. Steady as she goes. We published 442 posts and 43 pages (i.e. snippets/videos/almanac entries). I like that pace. We’re publishing content that has a pretty good shelf-life…

How do you plan out your vlog themes/scenes?

Billy Schrero asks about my incredibly popular YouTube channel. 🙂 I kid, I kid. But it has been growing nicely, the videos are getting more and more engagement. It’s been a great learning experience.

So I started doing a little planning. I’ll write a short script now in a writing program like Draft and plan for a handful of “scenes” or shots with possible dialog. I don’t try to perfect this at all. It’s just rough thoughts. Each paragraph break is a new shot in my head.Part of the script I wrote for a recent videoI often try to get the dialog to fit into…

One particular update was worth noting, as they appear to be launching ‘Interest Targeting’ into Reddit Ads, which would “allow advertisers to target audiences based on a handful of predefined interests (e.g. sports, gaming, music, etc.), which will be informed by which communities they frequent. A targeted ad is more relevant to users and more valuable to advertisers.” It doesn’t appear to be available in the Ad […]The post Reddit News: Interest Targeting Coming to Reddit Ads and Spoiler Tags by @brentcsutoras appeared first on Search Engine Journal.
