Celebration Podcast with the Moderators of r/AdOps and their Plans for the Future of the Group
This week on the podcast we’re doing something a little different. If you’re trying to learn more about Ad Ops, perhaps the best online community in existence is the sub reddit r/adops. The quality of the discussion is extremely high, everyone who posts there is very knowledgable, and its a great place to expand your knowledge. In an industry that badly needs more quality content, this site is invaluable.
The sub reddit just passed 3,000 subscribers a week ago, so I wanted to have all of the moderators of the site on the podcast to celebrate and learn more about how the group got its start. These are the people volunteer their time and put the hard work in behind the scenes to ensure that the group functions smoothly. We hit on some interesting points about the industry, as well as what types of discussions each moderator wants to see more of.
I would assume that most people that listen to this podcast found it through r/adops, but it you haven’t, I would highly suggest that you subscribe. The more people that join the group, the better it will be for everyone. Below are instructions on how to sign up and get involved.
