When considering whether to include Reddit in your social media advertising mix, there are several factors to take into account:

Target Audience

Reddit has a highly engaged user base with specific interests, making it possible to target your campaigns very precisely⁴. If your target audience aligns with the demographics and interests of Reddit users, it could be a valuable platform for your advertising efforts.

Authentic Engagement

Reddit users value authenticity and are known to be skeptical of overt marketing. Successful advertising on Reddit often involves genuine engagement with the community and tailored content for individual subreddits¹.


Advertising on Reddit can be cost-effective compared to other platforms, offering low advertising costs while still allowing you to maximize reach³. This can be particularly advantageous for small businesses or those with limited advertising budgets.

Trust Factor

Brands that participate in Reddit communities and advertise on the platform are often trusted more by Reddit users. This trust can translate into higher engagement and potentially better conversion rates².


Reddit offers flexible budget options, which means you can optimize your campaign according to your financial constraints and still reach a highly targeted audience⁵.

So, in the end, Reddit can be a valuable addition to your social media advertising strategy if your target audience is active on the platform and if you’re willing to engage authentically with the community.
