    Reddit is not the best place to sell at all.
    Number of times I've posted content/links and etc. and had a lot of traffic, but no one spends a penny.

    Why are you trying to sell through Reddit? If you want to sell fashion items you should be talking to people like ASOS or selling on Amazon or Ebay.

    Yes Reddit is not a great place to sell it is a micro forum website which help you get the better leads. you can make your brand popular among the reddit communities by involving into teh public discussion and solving their queries. This hep you increase your karma score and more and more people looking for your brand and business.
    More karma also signified the power of brand and gives a greater visibility to your brand.

    Reddit can be used for sharing your website links if it is useful for solving their queries. It would aid in increasing your website traffic.

    Never consider Reddit as a direct selling medium because it has reputation and not especially created for marketing.

    Reddit is not the right place for promotions. Its a micro forum and people in communities are discussion the general business and other problems and sharing advice. If you still want to promote it on Reddit then run advertisements.

    I think Quora is similar to Reddit but much easier to use for your purpose.

    Do not create a group to begin with, get involved with the community by posting relevant answers for questions people are asking

    If you want to sell on Reddit run adverts, but they are quite savvy on Reddit so you may not get the best ROI. If you create a subreddit with the intentions of your website or products it's very likely to fall flat on it's face. As said above you would be far better engaging in active subreddit communities.

    Reddit is a great place to hang out and pick up a few good links whilst having a bit of fun chatting around any topic, but I've never been able to drive much traffic and once you have a few links to your site, the incremental value of more much reduces.

    It is well worth having an account with a few posts on etc, whenever I launch a new site or post to my blog - I usually link to it via Reddit as well as G+1 and Twitter

    Contribute to the conversation and try not to spam them with self-promotion!

    Reddit will help drive traffic to your website, but it's not the best option when it comes to selling. It is, however, a good way to get involved in the community your business fits in and get your name out there (in order words, generate brand awareness).

    Get involved, answer questions, forge connections with other users and every so often link to your website/blog. Quora is also great for this.

    Good luck!

    Some of the answers in this thread are not particularly helpful to your question, saying 'Reddit isn't the place to sell at all' is not exactly true - Reddit is so large it's pretty much got a corner for absolutely everyone, you just have to find it.

    Don't think of Reddit as one giant community, think of it as thousands of tables in a room with people on them, hell you could have even asked this question on the /r/marketing subreddit and that would be helping to achieve your initial goal.

    You need to find a community, preferably a smaller subreddit that's within your topic or niche with not as many people. Engage with the community there until you're a well-known user, look for opportunities to promote what you do within the community, ask questions about what you do, soft sell.

    Remember if you go in gung-ho you're likely to either just get flat out banned or really annoy a lot of users. Play the long game, build up your site karma and begin posting in other subreddits as well - get creative.

    It's the place to do a lot of things, mainly because it's in the top 10 largest sites online, use it.

    In my experience Reddit appreciates an up-front and transparent approach to marketing. It's a very vocal and powerful community, and dishonest companies have been seriously damaged financially by angry Reddit users before when they try to self-promote through shill accounts.

    Reddit could be useful for brand awareness and increasing new visitors amount. But be very careful where and how you post your links. Moderators can ban your account if you post too much links and neglect reddiquette.
