Reddit: VR Subreddits
VR was born on Reddit and millions of VR users engage with these subreddits daily, making it a great place to share your videos. Be sure to submit your VR video as a text post with a description, instead of just posting a link. These are the most active communities:
If you have a video for a specific subject, search for the appropriate subreddit, such as: AMSR, drones, etc and post it there. Be sure to read the subreddit’s rules to make sure it gets published without issue.
Also, search for related non-VR communities like drones, ASMR, virtual tours, AI videos, live music videos, etc.
It’s important for creators to build their branding and find ways to connect with the intended audience:
- Use a memorable name for your channel that easily explains what your content is
- Design a good banner for your channel and engaging thumbnails for each video
- Write good descriptions for each video, using effective keywords and search terms so people can find them
