reddit-logoI’m sure we’ve all heard of Reddit before.  After all, it’s the “front page of the internet,” right?  With as simple as Reddit is, it’s gotten to be pretty popular, as it got 7 billion page views just last month.  That number is nothing to scoff at.  With that sort of popularity, it’s no surprise that businesses are doing what the can to get a little slice of that Reddit action.

But there’s a problem here.  Despite businesses utilizing Reddit, they aren’t succeeding the way they wanted to.  The issue that we are seeing is that marketers are simply approaching reddit the wrong way.
