I am writing this post from experience and I am always not the first person to take advice in most cases. But as new steemians under rep of 40 it is imperative to say hello to the new community you have made a decision to join.
Steemit is all about relationships, and getting to know each other. Unless you have bought your way into the platform with a large sum of steem. We need to work a little harder and more interactive within the community, if we wat to succeed.
So here are a few basic concepts on how to get more votes, make money off of votes and getting yourself into the steemosphere.
I know when I came to steemit, I thought all I had to do was post youtube videos and post stuff that were basic and very simple. Not to say that you cannot do that,but the better the content the more the votes! . That ussually is not the only factor by far, but content is definitely going to set you apart from those that are just doing the least.
- Stick to topics you have a passion about. Talk in your posts like you are talking to somebody. Try to make it as inclusive and interactive as possible.
- Use pictures. If you do not understand that aspect quite yet. You will notice when you go to write a post a small sentence that says Markdowndown Syling guide. this is your first step in writing and producing good content.
you will notice in this below picture the link to the guide in the upper right hand corner.
Comments are a way to get people to know you a little, and if they like the comment you can make some money from it. bonus, Also comments gets you into the consciousness of the other steemians, and in most cases creates a discourse between you and the other commenters.
Now upvoting has many advantages to it. Firstly you in some cases well get an upvote from others who you upvote. But, I can't stress this enough. Do not beg for votes. If you want to blacklist yourself amongst our fellows, just don't do it
Also as you grow your steem power if you vote well you can make money of curation. Which essentially is supporting the post through your upvote. At first when your steem Power is low you will not make much, but if you can come up with a strategy you can make 10-20 cents a week just for upvoting. I have a little over 100 SP and I average btween 9-15 cents/week in curation which grows as I vest steem back into the system. The system baically rewards you for being genorous with your votes.Now, with that being said. Never let your SP drop below 80% and you can monitor this on www.steemnow.com, this is a grat site which keeps track of everything for you, so you can have a clearer picture of where you are at.
Simple enough, you write a post you tag to what you wrote about. RIght and Wrong.
I would say the tags are the key which open the door to the masses of steemians just waiting to vote for you.
**Do not write about animals then tag in crypto, steem, life, etc. Use the tags that are fairly relevant to the topic you are writing about. *Here is a trick.
go to your feed and on the left hand side, I belive is a list of tags. Click on look up more tags at the bottom of the list. This will give you how active each tag is and how much of the reward pool it is accessing. which to you means better tags, more reward.
Do not under estimate the power of tags. You may e producing dynamite content but just placing it in the wrong place. Take heed of this part. very important
Now, Discord is not a part of steemit, but be sure that this is where everyone goes to chat, get to know each other, promote their posts, become a part of a community.
Discord is the Facebook messnger to Facebook, as it is to Steemit.
Make sure, you are friendly, respectful, and kind, and aware of other feelings. This is not youtube and there is little to no tolerance to Trollers. The app cab be downloaded at www.discord,com. I highly suggest this you, if you want to get a leg up on getting ahead in you rep points and post rewards. Not because discord is connected but because the people are and you can promote your posts within the program and get attention to you posting. Super great tool
Now, this seems like for a startup on steemit for newbies and minnows a superior upvote service which I can tell you is on the rise. There is a limited amount of space for astronauts(steemians) in the amount of 200 seats available. This I have a feeling will be big. It has all the right players involved, a good positive atmosphere and good solid unlimited upvotes for the membership.
I have a feeling that with this premium upvote/curation service for anyone who can afford 4 sbd would be the perfect vehicle to get you from where you are to where you want to be. unlike minnowbooster and randowhale this is a one time/monthly fee which gets you maximum returm on investment. Jump on this one. If you do, I will see you there. I did. Join here https://discord.gg/QMyXuKK
Steemit is a largely community based social media site, with the added incentive of makin some money.
which I think is beautiful, there are so many people I have talked on here from less fortunate coutries and steemit is making the difference between poverty, and paing rent, buying food, getting an education. Absolutely beautiful. I love the devs for coming p with this site.
To make the best out of steemit just remember stay involved, have your say, make friends and most importantlyHave fun
