How to Make Money on Reddit

Since it launched in 2005, Reddit has continually grown while many similar platforms have gone by the wayside. Featuring more than 100,000 communities, which are called subreddits, Reddit touches just about every topic imaginable.

Here's a guide to the best (legit) ways to make money on Reddit — from a few extra bucks to the equivalent of a full-time income.

There’s a subreddit for everything


Take the time to find communities that are a good fit for you. You can use the subreddit search, browse FindAReddit, or do a Google search for “best subreddits on ___”.

Become an active user


It’s hard to get anything significant out of Reddit if you’re only using it occasionally. Be active every day and contribute to the community if you want to get the most out of it.

Follow the rules


Reddit is not a very forgiving community. If you don’t follow the rules, you’re likely to get banned. Be sure to read and follow the rules of any subreddit you’re using.

Don’t expect to be anonymous


Assume that whatever you post on Reddit can be linked back to your identity. Many Reddit users have experienced consequences when their identity was discovered.

Know your purpose


Know what your goal is and how much money you’re looking to make. The right opportunities will be determined by how they fit in with your goals.
