Ways to Make Money with Reddit
The “Front Page of the Internet”, as Reddit is commonly referred to as, is a valuable source of information and knowledge to the users who understand its value. In truth, the users who realize the true value of this platform can never imagine leaving or even switching to a different social network for some time.
Having grown unimaginably for the last couple of years to a total of over 330 million active users (Redditors) every month, this social network is surely worth the hype.
But if you thought that Reddit is only a platform for the curious and hungry for knowledge, then you are wrong. It’s also a great place for those who are after generating income. With the option to either earn indirectly or focus on actual tasks that can make you money, there definitely is something for you.
Below, we review some of the best ways to start earning from Reddit today.
1. Create meme videos for your YouTube channel
With all the different groups/communities known as subreddits, there are lots of funny threads which you can use to make video memes. All that you have to do is identify or search for topics that you know would attract a lot of viewership. Basically, you would just have to get a post that has lots of funny responses and compile the post and funniest comments to make a meme video.
With several meme videos using content from Reddit, you should have enough content to create a YouTube channel and keep your subscribers engaged. You can make good use of some creative editing to make the videos even more hilarious with the aim of attracting more viewership.
The good thing with using Reddit to create content for your video is that there is enough content to help you maintain the uploading consistency for better audience retention. Always remember that the longer you are able to sustain a large viewership, the better your odds are at making some good income off your YouTube channel.
Other than having lots of content to make the meme videos, it’s also fairly easy to make such videos since you won’t even have to read out the posts or comments. With accurate text to audio software, it is possible to reduce the amount of effort that you would need to make a single video. By doing this, you can enhance your uploading consistency even further.
You don’t even have to focus on a single niche when choosing the content to create your videos with. Just be sure to pick the most interesting/funny and/or popular topics for amazing viewership. With enough viewership and positive engagement, you can make a fair amount of money from Reddit.

3. Become an affiliate on KickBooster, ClickBank, or any other platform
With the option to boost/promote a campaign of your choice on Kickbooster (link: https://kickbooster.me/affiliates/), ClickBank (link: https://www.clickbank.com/promote/), or any other similar platform, you can earn a great commission depending on what the owner of the campaign is ready to offer.
One of the most amazing benefits of using this method is that you are not required to have a specific set of skills or experience. You might, however, need a blog since it involves the use of affiliate links.
Once you have chosen the campaign that you are interested in promoting, you only have to post the link on your Blog article with convincing content to accompany it. With every click on the link, you will be earning some commission which will depend on the referral contract.
What this means is that you have to find an effective way to direct traffic to your blog since Reddit does not allow the placement of direct affiliate links (that can easily lead to an account ban). The best way to lead traffic to your blog post, therefore, is through the use of paid advertisement on Reddit and/or using organic traffic where you set up a landing page to direct traffic to your Blog from Reddit.
4. Make YouTube Videos based on trending topics on Reddit
Reddit is one of the best platforms to find the most recent or trending topics. There are lots of things that people want to know about or how to do, and you can make their work easier by creating YouTube videos that are related to such topics.
You will want to ensure that your videos offer great assistance and are without a doubt valuable to your viewer. That way, it will be easier to retain your subscribers/viewers and earn even more as word spreads about your new channel.
You will have to stay committed to finding the concepts that people are interested in and doing enough research so that you can create videos that have reliable information.
5. Join WorkOnline (r/WorkOnline)
WorkOnline (link: https://www.reddit.com/r/WorkOnline/) is also an amazing subreddit for people who are interested in learning more about the different online jobs, and other online opportunities that one can explore to earn some cash. Not only will you learn more about the different opportunities available, but you can also get really good recommendations on the best employers to work with and more.
Here is a quick list of the different topics related to making money online that you can find under the r/WorkOnline subreddit:

6. Join Redditors for hire (r/forhire)
Other than focusing a lot on mentioning the different opportunities that you can explore and how best to do that, Redditors for hire (link: https://www.reddit.com/r/forhire/)also has different employers who actually post the different job offerings that they have.
If you have some amazing, marketable skills, this is one of the most useful subreddit to hunt for opportunities. The good thing about this subreddit is that a majority of the clients also quote what they are willing to pay so that it becomes easier for you to decide whether or not to take up the offer.

7. Join SlaveLabour (r/slavelabour)
Even according to its name, this is not the most suitable subreddit to join if you are after an opportunity that will allow you to make sustainable money online. Slavelabour (link: https://www.reddit.com/r/slavelabour/) is suitably named simply because the job offers here will place you at a below-market rate.
While it’s not possible to get rich completing such kinds of jobs, you can make some cash by the side doing things such as:
Offering music lessons
Teaching different languages
And much more
Before joining such a subreddit, make sure that you not only have the time but that you are also comfortable being paid at a rate that is lower than what most employers generally offer.
This should be the go-to subreddit for someone who is trying to perfect their skill at doing something since the clients won’t expect exceptional quality having paid inadequately.
8. Make posts on Reddit
There are some clients who are willing to pay handsomely if you can make posts about them and their projects every day on Reddit. One challenge about this method of making money using Reddit is that such listings don’t always come by so easily.
Even though it can be a little bit hard to find such listings, you can increase your chances of landing on a good offer with enough persistence and patience.
A good example is such a listing (link: https://www.wayup.com/i-Music-j-Get-paid-to-post-on-Reddit-and-create-memes-all-day-Finman-Technologies-880633952749029/) from WayUp where a client was offering to pay $20 for each Reddit post that got more than 1000 upvotes. With lots of platforms to look for such listings, you are sure to come across one that will catch your interest.
