Did you guys notice that STEEM has a new Official Twitter Account called @SteemNetwork? Yesterday, while taking part in STEEM BLAST initiative by @timcliff, I noticed this account liking, following and commenting on the posts made by many enthusiastic Steemians. In this blog, I am going to discuss about two things which I learned at the end of this activity:
I will try to be precise with my thoughts and suggestion, hence this blog is not going to be very long or very short. It will fall somewhere in between but filled with lots of juicy information. Please do contribute and extend the discussion in the comment section below if liked anything that I am going to mention here or missed. Let’s start!
First of all I would like to thank each and everyone who took part in STEEM Blast Campaign and made it a success. We went crazy on Twitter and on Facebook. So, as I mentioned above, I was checking out the tweets all of us made yesterday. Apart from Twitter, I also covered Facebook Groups related to Cryptocurrency and Finance. Instagram gave me a decent reach as well. While checking how my posts are performing, I saw this notification:I was like, “oh Cool, now someone with their account name as STEEM is following me” so I followed back. A few hours ago, I saw the below Tweet from them which made the whole thing a whole lot more interesting:
Steemit Inc. has probably hired a badass social media expert who knows how to hit the nail! 😉 I totally love it when a social media account gets very active with the perfect sense of humor. This attracts more people than anything else. HUMOR sells so why the hell not! Apart from humor, PRESENTATION also sells. If you look good, it’s understandable that you will get more attention than anyone else. Similarly, if your social media account looks great with bright and unique colors, people would want to stop there for a while. The account has been very active since it got a makeover around 28th or 29th August! Not sure about the date. After completely checking out the twitter, I went ahead to the website and noticed there was no change at all. The logo is still the same. Being a Digital Marketer myself, I have a few thoughts, questions, suggestions and observations regarding the makeover and I am going to list them below. I hope someone from Steemit Inc. will read these and implement the suggestions wherever possible.
I hope with this makeover, a complete marketing system will evolve in the next couple of months from Steemit Inc.’s side and obviously community is going to support it as much as we can. It is logical as well since we have two big events coming up:
After these, more users and investors will come flocking towards the platform. So before these releases, we should have a strong base set on the top social media websites. Because people do not just look at the website these days! When we always talk about community and number of people backing the project, it should show everywhere on the internet and not just on STEEM.
Are you aware of #Promo-Steem? It’s an initiative started by @starkerz, @anarcotech and @stephenkendal to reward users who are promoting STEEM on and off the blockchain. This project has support from various people. It works on the concept of Multi-Proof of Brain where if three Steem-Ambassadors will upvote a post with #Promo-Steem Tag, then the main account will give the upvote to the post followed by their trail. For more info, please go and check the website: https://promo-steem.com/
I know all this information because I am a Steem-Ambassador selected by the community in a decentralized manner. In my opinion, every user on the blockchain is a STEEM Ambassador. We can do multiple things to promote and support the Blockchain. There are so many case-studies about what STEEM can do yet no-one is using them to promote the platform. I want to list a few tasks for everyone who wants to get involved in Promoting the blockchain to the masses. Once you complete any one or if all of these tasks, just let me know in the comments below and I will start following you (if that’s an incentive for you). In any case, try to do these things and I am sure it will help us grow the community:
I think if we focus on these bare minimum tasks, we will be able to reach many people online and create huge buzz across channels! Let’s show these investors the worth of STEEM community.
