Be it as interesting as possible or as cool as the coming winter. But do remember to avoid choosing a boring username as this may deem you as another no fun Joe.
Familiarize yourself with Reddit
Reddit aren’t like social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter where business promotion is highly encouraged. This community discourages any hard-selling direct promotion. Its main target is to inform, curate, and initiate great ideas.
Avoid being banned from the site or an increase in downvotes and carefully read reddit’s basic rules and practice reddiquette (Reddit etiquette) and have your content be upvoted and promoted to the front page.
Subscribe to niches related to your business

Also, there’s this subreddit where it lets you promote your deals if you are currently running a sale or a promo then subscribing and posting a link at r/deals should help you promote your deal positively.
Create a subreddit
If you’ve created quite the presence and authority, then it is time to create a subreddit for yourself. Having created your own community enables you to rely your message and hear out concerns regarding your business.
