What is a subreddit
A subreddit (or sub for short) is a smaller forum about a specific niche on Reddit. Among millions, there are many perfect ones for you to promote in.
Subreddits are marked with an r/ prefix. (r/petite, for example).
Every subreddit has its own posts and rules. The sidebar on the right shows the rules. Familiarize yourself with them before posting.

Subreddits you should avoid
There are also some subreddits you should stay away from, as they generally don't bring results.
First of all, don't post in subreddits specifically for OnlyFans promotion. You can recognize them by OnlyFans in their name. They are mostly just other creators, and Redditors rarely look for content there.
Secondly, stay away from karma farming subreddits, like r/freekarma4u. Your account is more likely to get flagged for spam if you participate there, as bots flood these subreddits. As you might guess, they also don't upvote back, so you don't even get much karma. Don't worry! You'll learn some tips for gaining the initial karma later.
Also, don't post in any unrelated subreddits. If you're a blonde, you won't have much success in r/brunette. And posting your boobs in r/ass will only get your post removed and potentially get you banned.
Subreddits for promoting OnlyFans require you to post only relevant content, or your post gets removed.
Use Social Rise's analytics to quickly see in what subreddits your content isn't gaining traction. Avoid them too.
But keep in mind that only posts submitted through the website are tracked. You should use it from the get-go to get optimal results later. Sign in with Reddit to schedule 10 posts per month for free and see how they perform.
Overlooked subreddits for OnlyFans promotion
Now that you know what subreddits to stay away from, there are also some that can level up your promotion but are rarely used.
For starters, you can create your own subreddit for promoting OnlyFans. You should name it the same as your username, and post there every so often. It serves as another way of building a loyal following.
Also, create another account and set it as a moderator. If for whatever reason, you lose your current account, the transition will be seamless, and fans will know where to find you.
You can create your own OnlyFans subreddit and post in it.
Another way to build a following is to post on your profile. It acts just like a regular subreddit. To schedule a post on your profile with Social Rise, use the u_ prefix.
Do these just as a little extra, as posts there are shown only in the feeds of your existing followers.
There are also communities specifically for OnlyFans creators to help each other on Reddit. OnlyFans Advice is the biggest one. See if your question was already answered before posting it, and don't post your pictures there.

Best OnlyFans Reddits for starting out
In the beginning, you'll want to post in smaller subreddits. You get more traction there as a new Redditor, and they have lower or no karma requirements.
You can find small subreddits for OnlyFans that are trending with Metrics for Reddit, and capture their audience before they explode.
Metrics for Reddit can reveal many good subreddits to promote OnlyFans.
If you're just starting out, you can gain the initial karma by posting in large SFW subreddits. For example, post a picture of your pet in r/pets. Also, get some comment karma by answering comments in rising threads in large subreddits, like r/askreddit.
Another path you can take is to post in r/gonewild before you mention that you're a seller. It's the biggest NSFW subreddit, so you'll likely gain good karma. The trick is to do it before you advertise your OnlyFans anywhere on Reddit, as they strictly forbid selling.
How to get the best results on subreddits for OnlyFans
Regardless of the subreddits you pick, there are some best practices you should follow.
Never directly advertise your OnlyFans. The way you gain subscribers from Reddit is to put your link on your profile and then post regularly. This brings Redditors to your profile. There they can find the OnlyFans link and subscribe for more.
You can make an exception if the subreddit's rules explicitly allow promotion.
Most of the best subreddits for promoting OnlyFans don't allow direct promotion.
This brings us to our next point, and that is to always read the rules before posting. Otherwise, your post can get removed, and you can be banned from posting there again.
Many mods run multiple subreddits, so one blunder can get you banned in multiple places.
If you run into trouble, the best you can do is to read the rules again, excuse yourself, and ask for a second chance. Arguing usually gets you nowhere.
You can, however, plug your OnlyFans link in the DMs. But make sure to make the recipient feel special, so they don't see your message just as an ad. You can do so by including a freebie or some other gift.
To not waste too much time with this, create an Autoresponder. It automatically messages everyone who DMs you or comments on your posts. Messages can be personalized.
Moving on, post at the best times to maximize upvotes and visibility. You can use this free post scheduler to prepare many posts at once and have them submitted at optimal times.
Next, always post high-quality content to gain as many subscribers as possible. Tailor it to the specific OnlyFans communities in which you post.
Some OnlyFans subreddits have an option to get verified. Do it wherever you can! It makes you look more legitimate and stand out from the sea of unverified users.

To speed up your promotion, you can reuse images. Just make sure to mix them up, so when a user visits your profile, it's not all the same picture.
When first using a image, submit it in one of the bigger NSFW subreddits. A top post there can net you 50+ subscribers! Then reuse it in smaller OnlyFans subreddits.
With Content Manager, you get a unique link each time you use an image, (or GIF or video), to avoid getting spotted by moderators.
And finally, you should delete posts that don't get much attention. This way, users have more incentive to subscribe, as there's not enough free content available. This too can be automated with Social Rise.
