Excellent points.

We're currently being promoted by r/ShitLiberalsSay (with a sticky) and r/LateStageCapitalism (in the sidebar). A big get would be r/socialism if anyone is friends with a mod there that could get us a sticky.

But I think we need to advertise off of reddit to grow - I think most of rad-reddit is already familiar with us, but are either uninterested in using a small, non-corporate site cut off from the greater (liberal) population, or lurk here without posting because there are so few conversations to join.

But I don't personally use any social media platforms outside reddit, so I'm not sure how to approach that. Maybe facebook groups? Or could we get a popular podcaster or youtuber to talk about us? ChapoTrapHouse seems very popular.

Neat, I don't usually lurk on those subs, so I didn't see those ones. Those ought to be helpful. I don't personally know the /r/soc mods, so I can't help you there.

For facebook, the only thing I can think of would be reaching out to some of the socialist meme pages there, and seeing if they'd plug us. Maybe also see if a popular leftist twitter user would plug us, but I don't use twitter either, so I don't know.

Maybe we should make socialist memes that mention raddit and send them to those meme groups?

Yeah! We need meme videos like this that promote raddit.
