Why every Musician should be using Reddit

Last month social news site Reddit had over two billion page views and 35 million unique visitors, so I decided to give it a try and I have been picking up some decent daily traffic for SoSoActive.com

Reddit is a social news website where the registered users submit content, in the form of either a link or a text “self” post. Other users then vote the submission “up” or “down,” which is used to rank the post and determine its position on the site’s pages and front page. (Wikipedia)

Reddit is an easy way for artists to submit links to their music and get some additional traffic to their blogs or websites. All you have to do is submit your link to a niche category, give it a catchy title and watch the comments start rolling in. To increase your traffic and visibility its essential to comment and read other posts in the categories that are relevant to the type of music you make. It’s no different from Facebook so make sure you respond to your posts feedback to keep the “link Karma” positive.

Some of the most popular music categories include listentothis which has close to 67,000 subscribers and hiphopheads which has about 17,000 subscribers.

It’s very simple to create and account so it’s a no brainer for any artist looking to gain more exposure without having to do a lot of work.
