Leveraging the Power of Reddit Communities with Tagboard

Reddit is home to some of the most engaged and vibrant communities on the planet with more than 52 million daily active users participating in conversations across the platform. In order to best leverage Reddit as part of a content plan, producers and marketers can utilize Tagboard and bring these diverse conversations beyond the platform on-air, on-screen, and online.  

Whether it’s through “Ask me Anything” style interviews (AMAs), Polls or event Photoshop challenges, Tagboard partners can engage with communities on Reddit in very creative ways and bring that content to life in Tagboard Producer.

Tagboard is thrilled to partner with Reddit to offer access to visualize Reddit Polls for the first time anywhere. Taking the poll results outside of Reddit using Tagboard allows producers to incorporate the views of a diverse audience who they know has interest in their particular subject matter. Customization options also ensure the visual fits the branding of the rest of their programming.

To showcase how you can leverage Tagboard and Reddit for your programming IRL (in real life), we’ve gathered up a few case studies that highlight the creativity of Reddit communities and the power of bringing that creativity to life.
