To coincide with Reddit’s presence at Cannes this year, it’s releasing all new research that will break down the recommendations sought and given on Reddit to better understand the role these conversations play in driving purchase decisions.
Reddit will be looking at recommendations by key categories, their effectiveness in driving the trial of a new product or brand, and other valuable indicators of consumer sentiment and spend. It will even reveal a list of the most recommended brands by redditors across key categories. It’s all in an effort to better equip marketers with the tools and information they need to drive results on and off the Reddit platform.
Introducing “Reddit Recommends”
“There’s nothing more powerful than trusted, word-of-mouth recommendations when it comes to making a purchase decision. Reddit has long served as a go-to curation for trusted recommendations online, thanks to its highly engaged and deeply invested audience. Having a consumer advocate on behalf of your brand when there’s nothing in it for them is the ultimate endorsement, but it doesn’t happen without genuine connection and a meaningful value exchange.” said Reddit’s VP of business marketing, Timo Pelz.
“This new research aims to break down what redditors are recommending and why, as well as help brands better understand how to build real connections and lasting impact with their audiences. We’re looking forward to sharing actionable insights and takeaways with the marketers, whether they’re activating on Reddit or looking to inform their wider strategies.”
