Does Reddit let you schedule posts

Reddit's website and mobile apps do not support scheduling. The only way to schedule Reddit posts is to use software built off the official Reddit API. The good news is there are easy and affordable Reddit schedulers that you can try for free in just a few seconds.

This guide will show you how to safely schedule Reddit posts for the best times without getting banned.

Why schedule Reddit posts

Reddit attracts 50M+ daily active users, but they’re not online 24/7. We’ve been tracking the # people online in Reddit’s best NSFW subreddits and found that subreddit peak hours often have 2x more traffic.

This means scheduling your Reddit posts can make a big difference in your upvotes. But how do you make sure your posts are timed to perfection? This is where a "Reddit schedule" becomes a game-changer.

Scheduling your posts ahead of time makes it possible for you to:

  1. Be consistently active, a factor Reddit's algorithm appreciates
  2. Target subreddit peak hours without setting alarms to manually submit your posts

Burnout is a real problem. But with a Reddit post scheduler, you can build an active profile in just a few minutes every week!

Best times to post on Reddit

Most subreddit analysis for best times to post is wrong. They are basing on number of posts that make the 'hot' page or reach a certain number of upvotes. This is misleading. If a lot of posts are submitted, some will naturally be popular. A spike in # popular posts may simply be from more content being posted, which means higher competition!

The best time to post on Reddit should be based on demand: # people who are online to view and engage with your content. You can find this in the about section of each subreddit:

The # people online is more important the # subscribers because there are some big subreddits that have died down in traffic. To help you better understand this, we have been recording the number of online users in popular subreddits over different hours of the day and different days of the week.

We've discovered that traffic on Reddit fluctuates a lot. There are times when traffic surges to 2X higher - what we call subreddit peak hours. These peak times represent the best time to post your content for maximum views and upvotes. Here's an example for r/adorableporn by day of week, and time of day, UTC time zone:

The challenge: Reddit has thousands of popular subreddits, each with its own distinct traffic patterns. Some subreddits are more active in the AM, while others are more active in the PM. Keeping track of these variations across subreddits is exhausting, not to mention they change over time.

To solve this headache, we've built the logic for finding the best times to post on Reddit into our scheduler. When you use FanGrowth, it automatically picks the best time to post on Reddit, so you never have to stress about timing again:

Instead, you can focus on what really matters - creating great content and growing your fanbase.

Why promote OnlyFans/Fansly on Reddit

Reddit is the #1 NSFW and anonymous platform. It's organized into communities — known as subreddits — which makes for highly targeted marketing.

These subreddits are built around shared interests, each representing a different niche. When you post your content, you're not just reaching a random group of people, but to an audience that is excited about your kind of content.

While there are more viewers on TikTok, the Reddit user base tends to have higher conversion and monetization potential, which makes it ideal for promoting your OnlyFans / Fansly.

Reddit also offers a level of stability. On TikTok, it’s easy to find yourself at the mercy of trends. Reddit, on the other hand, provides a reliable, steady audience for you to tap into.

Best of all, you can grow your fanbase from scratch, even promote OnlyFans anonymously. Unlike Instagram or Twitter, where your content's visibility is directly tied to your existing follower count, on Reddit you can post anonymously in a subreddit with millions of members even if you start with 0 followers.

Schedule Reddit posts for the best times

While Reddit offers an amazing platform to promote your OnlyFans anonymously, it does not let you directly schedule posts on their site. This is where FanGrowth comes in.

We worked with creators to build a software tool that fits neatly into your workflow, making FanGrowth the #1 fastest way to set up a Reddit schedule for promoting your OnlyFans / Fansly.

Takes only a few seconds to set up:

1. Link your Reddit account: We are approved by Reddit to use their official API, and we never see your password.

We ask only for the permissions we need to submit posts for you. You can test with a burner account, and unlink your account anytime:

Reddit authorization page

2. Batch upload your content: FanGrowth is the only tool that lets you visually upload multiple images / gifs /videos to Reddit, Redgif, or any link. We even convert your videos to gifs that play nicely on Reddit:

3. Pick your subreddits: Our searchable dropdown has the best NSFW and SFW subreddits ideal for promoting your OnlyFans/Fansly, including subreddit stats on audience size and whether they require verification:

You can even make custom subreddit groups by niche and add them in one click to save time:

As you pick subreddits, we suggest similar subreddits that don’t need verification:

Every subreddit has its own set of rules and trending content. We pull these in, so you can quickly check to make sure your content fits:

4. Review your draft Reddit schedule: We automatically draft spicy captions and schedule the best time for each post. So instead of building a Reddit schedule from scratch, you can just make edits!

As part of the draft schedule, we space your posts apart to follow subreddit rules, and to make your profile look more diverse. For example, the same photo or video gets spaced out so it does not get flagged as spam.

Once you’re ready to hit “schedule”, we check your post against subreddit rules to make sure everything is good to go:

If you change your mind, you can always edit your time, schedule or cancel the Reddit post in your dashboard:

And there you go! Most creators can schedule several weeks of content in just a few minutes, getting precious time back to create content, run their business, and live their life.

You can try our free plan today – comes with 20 scheduled posts, every month.

Schedule Reddit comments

Seller-friendly subreddits will let you comment in your post with a link to your free or paid page. This makes it easy to turn Reddit visitors into subscribers:

When this is allowed, you will see the option to check "add a comment". This opens up an input field where you can include your link or any text. Your input will be commented shortly after your post is submitted. To disable comments, just uncheck "add a comment".

To stay safe, we only enable commenting in subreddits with OnlyFans and Fansly in the name. If there are others you'd like to comment in, chat us and we can enable for you.

Set a daily target for Reddit posts

To make life easier, you can set a daily target for # Reddit posts in the settings page:

Screenshot showing how to set a daily target for Reddit posts

For example, if you set a target of 10 posts / day, our scheduler will aim to fill 10 posts every day, starting today. It remembers your existing scheduled posts, so if today is already filled with 10 posts, it will move onto the next day, and so forth.

You can also customize the rules for spacing posts apart when you're on a paid plan:

If your scheduled posts per day is under your daily target, you can solve this by scheduling more content, adding more subreddits, or reducing the spacing apart rules noted above.

If you don't have a preference for # daily posts, you can still customize the spacing apart rules for different posts:

Some subreddits allow multiple posts per day. If you want to do this automatically, chat us to edit the spacing apart logic by subreddit. Or you can easily space your posts apart in the dashboard. Filter by subreddit name, and then change the dates to be closer together:

You can change your daily target anytime. Once it's changed, we will remember it for your schedule going forward. The posts you've already scheduled will not change. But you can still make tweaks to your existing schedule anytime by clicking on the pencil icon next to the scheduled time in your dashboard page.

Track subreddit performance

Most of your OnlyFans/Fansly subs will come from your top subreddits, where you consistently get to the top of the subreddit page. Reddit does not help you track subreddit performance over time, but FanGrowth does. You can use the Analytics page to see your best (and worst) subreddits and content over time:

Track reddit post analytics

This helps you quickly figure out which subreddits are worth focusing on to get the most paid subs from Reddit. It's auto-sorted by average # upvotes, although you can sort any column:

Track reddit analytics by subreddit

The last one, # removed posts, gives you an idea if a subreddit regularly removes your posts. This is an early sign that you might be (shadow)banned in a subreddit, and should focus your time elsewhere.

You can also see your best content and titles at a glance, which can help inspire ideas for how to create more Reddit posts that people love:

Track reddit analytics by post

Check posts by subreddit or status

If you want a detailed view of your recent post performance, you can also use our History page to see your performance. This is auto-sorted by most recent date, and you can search by subreddit and post status:

Check reddit post performance

Search by subreddit helps you see all content that were submitted into the subreddit. Search by status helps you see all posts that were say, removed or banned. You can use this to find a list of subreddits to avoid to keep your Reddit account safe. There is no place on Reddit that summarizes your post status, so FanGrowth tracks this to save you time!

Sorry, this post was removed by Reddit's filters

If you see this message on your post, it means that Reddit's automated system removed your post, and it will not be seen by people in the subreddit. Reddit's automated system tries to predict if a moderator would remove the post, and automatically does it for them to save time and improve post quality.

The system can make mistakes, so when this happens to you, there are a few ways to fix it:

In short, if your posts are getting removed by Reddit, you can contact the moderators for a manual override, and improve the chances of future Reddit posts submitting successfully by raising your comment karma, using different captions for each post, and spacing your posts apart.

Is it safe to use a Reddit post scheduler? Will it reduce my reach?

FanGrowth is approved by Reddit to submit posts for you. We use Reddit’s official API, built by Reddit, so your account is safe using it.

Every submitted post first goes to the ‘new’ tab of the subreddit. Once it gets enough upvotes and comments, your post makes it to the ‘hot’ tab, which is the default page that will get you seen by everyone checking out that subreddit.

Whether you submit through a scheduler or manually, it always starts on the 'new' tab of the subreddit. But scheduling your Reddit posts does give you more freedom and flexibility.

Will I get banned for using a Reddit post scheduler?

No, using a Reddit scheduler is not against Reddit's terms of service. Subreddit moderators also cannot see that you are using a scheduler.

With that said, Reddit is still tricky to navigate, especially if you have a new account. Some moderators can be quick to ban accounts if you don’t follow their rules. And multiple offenses can lead to a shadow ban or suspension.

To check if you are shadow banned on Reddit, open up a private window where you are NOT logged in, and go to your profile by copying this URL and pasting your username: If you see your profile, you’re good. If you don’t, it means you’re shadowbanned.

When you are shadowbanned, there is no known way to reverse it. You’ll have to start a new account from scratch (ideally with a new browser). If you are suspended, Reddit will notify you via email and on the website in a banner.

The most common cases of getting banned from Reddit are:

While promoting your OnlyFans/Fansly on Reddit can be a challenge, we hear from creators all the time that it’s well worth the investment.

When you try FanGrowth for free, you get all the upside of Reddit while avoiding burnout. Reddit does not need to be a stressful full-time job!
