You tell people to buy STEEM

That's not bad advice at all.

Then you tell them to use bots on their introductory posts.

Everyone can go ahead now, have a look. Not ONE of those trending 'introduceyourself' posts used bots, yet this guy claims everyone does it and all of the time. A bold-faced lie.

You're essentially robbing visibility from a new member who can't afford to promote their post to the top at the start with this advice. You're not giving them an edge with this advice. You're telling them to buy STEEM and invest in someone else, rather than themselves, all while making it MORE difficult for your average new member to get off the ground here.

Those posts of yours with the low value PROVE your system doesn't work. You have over 12000 followers who refuse to vote for your content now. That's what you bought with bots and you get what you paid for. That's what you get when you focus only on bot use and can't produce content that can attract an organic viewership willing to upvote your content for free. You put yourself in a situation where if you don't purchase the reward value beside your post, you see nothing. Why would you tell others to do that? "That's how I'd do it," you say, and clearly it isn't helping after ALL this time you've been doing it.

All this video was was a goddamn advertisement for bots, disguised as help.

This is sickening. No wonder you added in a verbal disclaimer every few minutes while you were talking. You knew damn well you're full of crap and don't want to take any responsibility for the drivel falling out of your face.

A Friendly Reminder to All Those Struggling or Just Starting Out

One thing I agree with is how it's wrong to blame the platform for not seeing immediate success. It's almost like you used my post (seen above) that I had published three hours before you published this, as a script or for inspiration. I hope it's only coincidence.

·

I agree with you @nonameslefttouse.

The average user simply doesn't have the chance to invest in Steem on that scale, and selling it as the ultimate driver to success is patronizing.

I'm sorry Joe, but you're drawing a completely wrong image of this network, telling people that they can only succeed here if they buy themselves in. You may want to consider the Steem White Paper where the Sweat Equity Principle is defined as one of the fundamental principles of Steem:

All forms of capital are equally valuable. This means that those who contribute their scarce time and attention toward producing and curating content for others are just as valuable as those who contribute their scarce cash. This is the sweat equity principle and is a concept that prior cryptocurrencies have often had trouble providing to more than a few dozen individuals.

We need to respect those who can't invest money but time.

Hence, your video is not made for all new users, but a tiny minority of blogging investors. Only few would be able to step into your shoes and follow your example which is why this here can't actually be called a beginner's guide.

You've put a lot of efforts and also money in the system @joeparys which is definitely worth to be mentioned. But please do one step back and try to look at it from the perspective of someone who doesn't have thousands of dollars in their bank accounts. Maybe you can do a real tutorial the next time that is effectively addressing the large majority of new users that join our wonderful community.

We don't want this place to become a rich-people-only-club.

Hi surfer! I appreciate your comment... you make some great points! First, I never said that the only way to succeed was to “buy in”. What I communicated was if you do buy in... you will have a significant advantage. I think you will agree with me that since MOST do no buy in, buying into steem or sbd will give you a much better chance of success here. If you want to try and create great content and just posit it from scratch and "maybe" (huge maybe) get recognized... by all means do so... there are many ways to succeed here. I was just showing what I did... because my followers and students ask me all of the time "what would you do if you had to start all over again"

You quote the white paper 📝 where it says all forms of capital are equal - the fact is this simply isn’t true. A whale with millions is Steem power can wipe away any piece of content by downvotIng if he chooses. OR a bunch of Whales can do this to a users content. This has happened to many users here actually and they have left steem.

I was also not disrespecting anyone who can’t invest... and I do think a lot about the new users experience. The fact is you don’t have to invest more than $50-100 to hit the top of the trending on the introduce yourself page. I don’t feel that that is a lot of many to a majority of users... from that small investment you can reinvest earnings and keep posting if you apply the strategies correctly. I am sorry you feel that Steem is a “rich persons club” but the reality is that Steem can only exist if NEW money comes into the platform. If it doesn’t...Steem will inflate and go to 0. I appreciate your comment and opinions! @surfermarly I hope this helps!

Hey Joe! Thanks for getting back so quickly :-)

From my own experience I can tell you that there are many different ways to succeed on Steem, and one of them is to create great content.

I am one of those who started from scratch (in July 2016), not having any money to invest, but plenty of time. My first ~25K Steem were exclusively earned by blogging, neither using any bid bots nor participating in any voting circles, but simply engaging with the community on a daily basis.

It's possible.

You probably wouldn't remember it, but the only time you commented on one of my blog posts was when I announced that I had just bought a piece of land with my Steem earnings :-)

Yes, $50-100 aren't much neither for you nor for me, but ask one of our users from Venezuela or Nigeria what value $50-100 dollars have to them. I'm just politely asking you to be a bit more open-minded and include these people in your thoughts.

I admire your journey and am really impressed how far you've come in such a short time. Your success story is a great showcase to pitch Steem to investors without any doubt.

Yet, on a top trending position the members of this community will hold you accountable for your doings, and if you present yourself as a role model then you shouldn't only do that for those who have thousands of dollars in their bank accounts.

I agree with you on the fact that Steem needs further investments to succeed, but that's not the only contribution needed to make STEEM become valuable. Without these thousands of users creating content here on a daily basis and engaging with one another, this blockchain would be nothing.

My comments were not aiming to bruise your impeccable story at all, but to inform those who watch your videos that the way presented here is not the only one.

Steem on 🤙

Respect ✊ @surfermarley and I was not aiming to take anything away from your comment above. When you joined in 2016 I am sure things were way different back then. I bet the way to earn Steem and Steem dollars 💵 was also different as well (I would actually love to hear how you were able to earn so much Steem back then!) congrats on your 25k for real! The reason I posted on your post was because I was genuinely inspired! And I think being able to turn great content into property is super cool 😎

When you try to be a role model and help others it’s going to be 💯 impossible to serve everyone. I understand your point with Steemians in other parts of the world - if you believe there is a better way to serve them I’m open to suggestions for sure. And I appreciate you holding me accountable. Steem on

Maybe we have the chance to talk about blogging strategies at Steemfest³. I am still not sure if I can make it, but I'll let you know.

Steem on and happy weekend!

how you reached to 72 i am still in 25 and i want to know how this number used to increase ?

·
·

This has happened to many users here actually and they have left steem.

Name ten.

Since you're so keen on spreading misinformation today, I decided to downvote your post. Majority of the downvotes on this platform have been handed out to help stop abuse, not used as a weapon.

I guess the downvote I've given you today is there to help prove people also stay after receiving them. I've received downvotes, I didn't go anywhere. You're still here as well.

Is he becoming the Jerry Benfield 2.0?

Thank you for posting this nonameslefttouse lets discuss your comment above.

  1. "Everyone can go ahead now, have a look. Not ONE of those trending 'introduceyourself' posts used bots, yet this guy claims everyone does it and all of the time. A bold-faced lie."

I did not claim everyone does this... I said if I was new... I would use the upvoting services and create a piece of content. The introduce yourself tag is a great resource... just because you make an introduce yourself post DOES NOT guarantee anyone will see your post... but if you did use upvoting bots you are much more LIKLEY. Want Proof? You watched THIS video? You commented on THIS video post? Why? You watched it because its at the TOP of the trending page... BOT SERVICES EXIST... and ANYONE can use them... Don't hate the player hate the game.

  1. "You're essentially robbing visibility from a new member who can't afford to promote their post to the top at the start with this advice. You're not giving them an edge with this advice. You're telling them to buy STEEM and invest in someone else, rather than themselves, all while making it MORE difficult for your average new member to get off the ground here."

Robbing visibility? Again you're blaming the stake weighted system and voting bots...and you're right.. im not giving them an "edge" im giving them a HUGE ADVANTAGE if they actually APPLY and use the systems in place. ALSO, Yes, I AM "TELLING THEM TO BUY STEEM! LOL!" Thank you for making this VERY CLEAR! Wouldn't it benefit EVERYONE if more people bought STEEM?! It's a WIN WIN situation...

  1. Those posts of yours with the low value PROVE your system doesn't work. You have over 12000 followers who refuse to vote for your content now. That's what you bought with bots and you get what you paid for. That's what you get when you focus only on bot use and can't produce content that can attract an organic viewership willing to upvote your content for free. You put yourself in a situation where if you don't purchase the reward value beside your post, you see nothing. Why would you tell others to do that? "That's how I'd do it," you say, and clearly it isn't helping after ALL this time you've been doing it.

Me showing a $.063 cent post ONLY PROVES that NOTHING is GUARANTEED! Go ahead and look at this post itself... it was upvoted by MULTIPLE WHALES ORGANICALLY. I also encourage you to look at all of my other posts on my feed that are upvoted $10s to $100s of dollars with and without bots... (dtube, steemmonsters, other whales and dapps) I do not call that a FAILED system...

  1. "All this video was was a goddamn advertisement for bots, disguised as help.

This is sickening. No wonder you added in a verbal disclaimer every few minutes while you were talking. You knew damn well you're full of crap and don't want to take any responsibility for the drivel falling out of your face."

This is not an ad for bots... an ad for bots would talk all about BOTS... I mention them a few times at best and steem bot tracker for 30 seconds...

As for the verbal disclaimer -- the whole point in emphasizing again and again "this isn't FINANCIAL ADVICE" is because its NOT! I am just showing others what I have done... that is all. Not persuading them to doing something... just sharing... giving... period.

  1. "One thing I agree with is how it's wrong to blame the platform for not seeing immediate success. It's almost like you used my post (seen above) that I had published three hours before you published this, as a script or for inspiration. I hope it's only coincidence."

LOL this is fantastic. Not only do you come here, rip on my post, but now you're PROMOTING YOUR POST and bumping it to the TOP OF THE COMMENTS on the #1 TRENDING POST ON STEEMIT?! Honestly this is an amazing strategy and one now I will be sharing!! I sincerely thank you for doing this.

ANDDDDDD You are saying I plagiarized you?! I have 37,000 steem power now to date. When I recorded this video I had 32,000 SP.... This video was recorded more than a week ago... I do not follow you... I do not know you... You are literally piggy backing off my post to promote your post. I am loving the irony here.

******* LASTLY I never comment back like this...EVER... because its exhausting and silly. I sincerely value your comment because it has made for a great discussion and proof. No hard feeling, we just see things a bit different. Nothing wrong with this.

·
·

I see no need to explain myself. Have a nice day.

*Edit: Actually, there's one thing.

I see you went through a lot of effort there writing your response. Normally I'd vote for folks who do such a thing. For you, since you'd prefer it this way, for a limited time only, please send 1 SBD to my wallet and I'll give you a vote worth $1.02. How can you possibly beat that offer? Don't delay! Act now and I'll throw in an extra penny!

Come on Joe. Taste your fish. Show everyone how good it is.

Do you mind I flag that comment even though you're a cool kid?

Downvote whatever you want.

Upvoted yours to make up for the lost CR.

I sponsor a $1.02 vote to OP. That response was actually quite creative

You gave me one STEEM worth 86 cents, I voted at 76% to place a reward of $1.02 on the comment above. I'll receive 27 cents as a curation reward, he'll receive 78 cents. You're down 86 cents, I'm up $1.13.

It's no wonder people leave feeling ripped off after buying those votes.

·

I’m just delegating and that’s it. Been at this for long enough to not get noticed. Now I just shit post like the ‘fun’ steemian. He earns more one one liner posts then I do i.ln a month.. just done :(

·
·
·
·
·
·

You all want votes but instead of voting, you give your vote power to someone else, then sit back and wonder why nobody is voting. I guess you all didn't read the fine print.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I don't give out 100% to anyone, I like you but that is not the reason you got 100%. You got 100% for the fucking logic of this statement.

You now have a 35% vote daily for life, no matter how high steem goes.

·

A deal's a deal.

·

Sell or be sold to my friend... we are all in sales whether we like it or not... I genuinely believe in what I sell because I am LIVING PROOF that it actually works... the real crime is not enrolling in my courses for $9.99... the amount of VALUE and EDUCATION in the course well outweighs the price... you should enroll and see... you have nothing to LOSE! Remember our 30 day money back guarantee! :D

Be careful, Joe. You're setting yourself up for a good burn. If I came here to be disrespectful, I might say something like yup, humor sells. At least you know you're a joke. I won't do that though.

In my twenties, I worked in retail. Quite often I'd have to walk past the vacuum section on my way to somewhere else more important. People would constantly ask me, "Which one of these vacuums is good?" I'd respond with, "Well, to be honest with you, they all suck."

I sold more vacuums with that line than the old man and his the customer is always right mentality could ever dream of.

I don't want to end this on a sour note. I'd offer you some advice to improve your situation here. You didn't exactly receive a positive response, once again. I prefer to see people succeed. Unfortunately, that advice will cost you $9.99.

Wink-wink

Have a good day, Joe.

·
·
·
·

Whos being disrespectful? If you cant handle the OP actually defending his content (which can sincerely help others) I would suggest not commenting on my posts in the future.

·
·
·
·
·
·

If you lack the necessary level of reading comprehension required to be able to understand comments under your posts, you should not be responding to them in the future.

I only skim through all this garbage and I can just say this.
You @nonameslefttouse, you're an archetype, if you can call it that, of Activist, while @joeparys is an "archetype of pragmatist.
I'm with Joe, on most of this.
Steem tolerates bid-bots.
The best way to get into trending is either be a "whale" or but votes.
You don't need to like it, it's just how the things are.
I myself try not to "overdo it", not that I'm willing to invest into a platform that does not promote merits.
All I'm saying, most of the points are "true" for the current state of Steem.
But don't take it as a criticism.
I use most of the little vote power I have to flag abusers Virtue Signaling
Keep up your work.

·
·

please, you are a scammer. It's clear as day. Not one upvote for your "followers" you just using your PURCHASED STEEM POWER , circle jerking yourself up to the top.

·
·

I see you're still trying to defend yourself. I suppose if your product was good, there'd be no need. Anyway, based on what you've said here and elsewhere, I'd just like to respond with:

If someone buys Steem, then powers it up, they have Resource Credits to use. It they buy Steem and give it to you, they do not have Resource Credits to use.

So, on their first day, they've already screwed themselves over if they buy your sales pitch. Once they figure out they've spent money and now have to spend even more, they become disappointed, some feel ripped off. Steem then looks like a ripoff because word spreads fast.

If they purchase Steem, then power it up, that benefits everyone. If they produce content, earn, then power it up, that benefits everyone.

If they purchase Steem, then hand it over to someone like you, you sell it, and push the value down. Why do you sell votes? For income. Why do you want income? So you have money. How do you get money? You sell the tokens people have given to you in exchange for votes.

Now let's look at the trending page today. Look at all of those posts with 1-10 comments. This is NOT prime real estate. Being at the TOP does not make you the BEST by default. Most folks now know the trending page here is full of ads and your typical content consumer skips the ads.

People get up to go get a drink or visit the bathroom when the ads start on television.

Only someone who's incredibly naive or ignorant would not be able to see how your video up there is an advertisement and not actual content. Those are the people you prey on. Others can see how you're manipulating people and that's why they begin to dislike you. That NEW member you're targeting is the easiest mind to enter. They don't know any better and you're taking advantage of them.

Your responses are disingenuous. It's not hard to see that. You're promoting your narrative throughout, avoiding logic and reality. You want your product to look good, you don't care how you look.

You and the others preaching the same narrative are following a very BASIC tactic used to manipulate people. It dates back hundreds of years.

You enter a community, find a way to get people to gather so you have their attention, you then create a problem, they get worried, then you come to the rescue and offer a "solution" for a FEE.

You're selling snake oil, in a sense. Same business model.

I should add: I'm not trying to take anything away from passive investors. Those folks should know the system already offers ways to earn passively that don't include a middleman skimming profits. It doesn't look like you're attempting to appeal to those who are good with money though. Maybe you prefer the gullible? I don't know. Purely speculation.

I guess, in the end, this model you're offering doesn't help. I've seen many people try it, fail, leave, then a new ad comes up and those who left get replaced. The cycle goes around and around and those paying never seem to get anything out of it. The worst part is how some blame this platform rather than those who set them up for failure just to make a quick buck.

·
·
·

This is really off topic and you're just trying to get me to respond ... its now turned into being disrespectful and hateful. I wish you the best.

Sincerely,
Joe Parys

·
·
·

No. That's me being honest with you, telling you how I feel, what I see. There were no insults there. Being honest shouldn't be considered disrespectful but I do realize it's easier for you to look better on the surface by attempting to make me look bad. That's how you roll, I'm fine with it. You didn't need to respond. I didn't say that to get a response. It's not off topic because like I said, I based it on what I've read here. I'm sure I covered all the bases and made that clear.

I don't get it. If ten people purchase the top slots, the other ninety, who did nothing wrong, are forced to suffer. They must remain invisible because the only way to purchase visibility is to push everyone aside. So this model caters only to those destined to fail because of the model and the majority gets pushed away. Your sales pitch claims this is somehow beneficial. We've all been watching the results for months, we can come to logical conclusions based on facts. If we say anything, we're treated like shit. People have been pointing out the issues caused by what you're trying to sell, Joe, for months, and months. If all 100 purchased those slots, then there's no such thing as visibility because what they've actually done is reset themselves back to zero. If the rewards beside a post dictate where one sits on the ladder, let's say $50, and EVERYONE wants to compete so they all place $50, that makes $50 the new $0, and everyone goes right back where they started and your product becomes irrelevant. If they try to go higher than the $50, they begin to lose more and more money, then lose interest because it becomes a waste of time and money. It can't even scale up. It's pointless. A waste of money. I can't be the only one who sees this. Look at your wallets. Do you really want to see each $50 turn to zero? How is this model going to benefit an investor? It's ready to implode at any given second and you folks claim it's good. How is it good?

If a reward of $50 means people are only breaking even, the true value of $50 is $0. That is bad for business.

This latest hardfork provides plenty of incentive to invest and powerup, a huge step in the right direction. What you're selling, Joe, negates much of the benefit. Where I come from, we call that a dick move.

Awesome post! I just wanted to share my company here, if that’s ok? We are called #TheCryptoCrowd and we are an online community where individuals can learn, earn and invest in all things blockchain. We are looking for people to join the Crowd and start making predictions and writing for us! In doing so we can offer you Steem or our own tokens once our #Beta website is up and running.

If you would like to learn more please drop me an email at isaac@thecrytpcrowd.io

Or likewise register today at:http://bit.ly/CCROWD

We are a start up, but with huge aspirations and legitimately want your help in achieving that. Anyone with at least a basic knowledge of blockchain is more than welcome to get on board!

·

I am totally new here. In my case i cannot afford to buy steem, as I understand it is to pay in order to be promoted. So, that's why my account doesn't reflex any savings?

Upvote to you

A retarded post, posted by a retard, full of retarded comments and upvoted by retarded bots. Thanks for making steemit slightly more retarted.

By the way, has anyone told you that you look like jerry dumbfield? Just slightly more retarted.

You are a winner! This is the Comment with the most use of the word retarded. You've won a 100% vote. Congrats! Keep it up.

Thanks, it's a true honor.

Funnily enough it was Jerry Scamfield who introduced Joe to the platform.

Shocking!

*retarted guy

This guy managed to sell his course to a hell lot of people.. and he also has a good amount of SP.. but the community just dislike him.. well.. his posts on average makes around a dollar when he doesn't buy votes, on other occasion when he buys votes he is on trending.. beside he never votes for others, especially the people who licks his arse, i see many calling him "sir" and trying to kiss his butt, sadly he will only sell his votes.. well yeah people don't appreciate contents anymore, but people needs to pay to @appreciator to get their posts appreciated..

·

I do giveaways weekly... and my average posts earn more than a dollar

·
·

With 12000 followers. That's quite a shocking result. I have a little over 1000 followers and my posts earn more organically.

Ah, You are telling us that to be successful a Steem you need to be wealthy to start with. You use the wealth that you already have to leapfrog poorer Steemiens beavering away because they did not have the financial means to invest. With that wealth you buy power and friends and because of this it is not necessary to work quite as hard as your posts immediately pull in more cash.

If Facebook was a program that cost $100 to buy would all those millions people be using it?

Your guide is not egalitarian it is exclusivist. A guide to how middle class people in the developed world can make more money by investing in Steem while doing the minimal amount of work.

When people start making egalitarian guides that allow real world activities to take place (work for example) at the same time then Steem will gain mass adoption. Until then your target market will stay tiny

·

You make a great point sugar fix and I didn't explain this well enough in the video. You DO NOT NEED to be wealthy to start... but because of the stake weighted system in place today, naturally the more you invest the more control you have with rewards (same thing can be said for most companies for investors).

However, you can come to steemit, create really great content (I recommended a great introduce yourself post)have a few whales up-vote you, and then re-invest your earning using the voting bot system. If done correctly, you can build more STEEM, SBD, and STEEM power. This is what I have done, on top of INVESTING as well.

Investing is the "short cut" if you want to call it that... but can you really be mad at people who take their hard earn money or made good smart choices with money and now have more control on Steemit?

·
·

If you scroll down the New Introduce Yourself pages you will see that the vast majority of posts make close to zero. That includes the people that make quite impressive posts.

Just get a few whales to up-vote you.

I found that quite an amusing phrase. It's akin to joining Facebook and and being advised to get several of the original investors to give you a like. :)

Yo!!!! Mr Thiel ......dude ......do me a favor would ya.....

Investing isn't "called" the short cut it "is" the short cut. Whatever way you spin it wealth is giving you access to more wealth.

but can you really be mad at people who take their hard earn money

Ah yes the same old vanity that gets trotted out in the outside world. Your money wasn't hard earned was it? You leapfrogged over the grind that poorer people have to put in to reach the same position. If they reach your position that money will have been hard earned. Your Steem wasn't.

I also see that you are very reticent to spread your wealth around. You haven't given a single person on this thread an upvote to date. Now I don't expect you to give me an upvote as I have had quite a pop at you and not been particularly pleasant but other people? Come on you must have RC coming out of your ears. It can't hurt. Help the platform grow by helping minnows grow. Go to one of the Discord groups and actively seek out minnows and delegate some RC so they can post. Someone delegated me 50 today so that I could post and not lose touch with the community I have worked on the past couple of months. As such I won't be replying again. Us minnows are directing everything to Discord at the moment. It is Discord that is propping up Steemit at the moment. Without it Steemit would be gone and with it the value of your Steem.

I like you. Keep it up! 👍

Reminds me of my former appeals to Jerry Banfield against his bid bot budget proposal system that perpetuates the pay to play cycle. All he came up with was duplicitous excuses which seems the hallmark of people coming from the JB camp. They like to speak from both corners of their mouth but the discerning can see right through them.

What these kind want is power and they don't care how they get there. They'll dance around and act like they care about Steem, the ecosystem, and growth but, in reality, the a cleverly trying to line their coffers while degrading the platform. I hope he continues to get flak and rage quits like Jerry or repents of his sleazy ways.

I dont give upvotes because I run an upvoting service on this account. If I gave upvotes it would mess up the voting rounds. This is why I do lots of giveaways. Please understand thank you :)

Dumb answer.

Most "promotional" service owners run their services on their alternate accounts. You are just sleazy, period.

Don't follow Joe's advice. It won't gain you anything of value.

·
·

Why not? What do you think is wrong about his advice?

·
·
·

He's advising you to rely on paid votes in order to gain exposure. The only problem with this advice is that it is lacking in a couple of key areas:

  • The first being that paid votes only benefits the person selling the vote (funnily enough, Joe is a bot owner).
  • The second issue is that at no time has Joe mentioned how important it is to network on Steemit and find like minded communities of Steemit users, this is where you gain your organic votes that actually mean something.
  • The final issue is that Joe is telling blatant lies. Most people don't buy votes for their introductory posts. In fact, very few people do. And, personally, I would never advise someone to do this.

There is one important thing you need to know about Joe. He was introduced to Steemit by a very well known scammer called @jerrybanfield. Both of these characters are here to rip off anyone that they can. Which is why Joe sells a bullshit course for $9.99 which won't tell you anything that you can't already find for free right here on Steemit. In fact the information that you can find for free on Steemit is probably better quality information.

Ok, thank you for a very well-informed reply! Taking it into account (and going to visit your profile! And follow you most probably ;-) )

Welcome mate. Happy to answer any questions you might have.

Thank you @mazzle and @bjornb for the questions and responses. I appreciate you taking the time to write these. In response, I offer only my personal opinion. I am in no way arguing against anyone here. But lets take a deeper look at the above by @mazzle:

  1. "He's advising you to rely on paid votes in order to gain exposure. The only problem with this advice is that it is lacking in a couple of key areas:

The first being that paid votes only benefits the person selling the vote (funnily enough, Joe is a bot owner)."

Paid upvotes do benefit the bot owner but this is NOT their only benefit. Bots allow for DELEGATION by any steemian and gives steemians a way to earn passive income on their steem power. This is an incredible service... I dont know of very many other online services where you can delegate your stake and earn daily passive income (pure passive income). Bots also allow for upvotes for users to gain exposure. This post has more than 400+ upvotes and most likely has been seen by thousands of steemians because its at the top of the trending page... there is an incredible VALUE in ATTENTION and being noticed... this is all thanks to paid upvotes. Upvoting servies also KEEP MILLINOS of DOLLARS IN STEEM IN THE COMMUNITY -- because you have to have it POWERED UP! Without bots STEEM price would be WAY LOWER than it is today... I could go ON AND ON about the REAL VALUE of bots...

  1. "The second issue is that at no time has Joe mentioned how important it is to network on Steemit and find like minded communities of Steemit users, this is where you gain your organic votes that actually mean something."

This is actually a very good point. Networking is important and I should emphasize this more in my videos. However, what is MORE important is GIVING and CREATING GOOD CONTENT CONSISTENTLY. When you focus on "networking and finding a community" your focusing on trying to GET something before GIVING -- I.E. If I join this community, what you YOU give me in return? Or if I FOLLOW YOU what will YOU DO FOR ME if I FOLLOW YOU? This can work but the the results are not nearly as good and its coming from a very SCARCE and NEEDY place.

  1. The final issue is that Joe is telling blatant lies. Most people don't buy votes for their introductory posts. In fact, very few people do. And, personally, I would never advise someone to do this.

I am not telling a "lie"... all I have done in this video and all of my videos is share what I have personally done. You can take the information and do what you want with it... but I am not lying. Do I make mistakes? Am I wrong sometimes? All of the time... and I admit that openly and honestly... thats A LOT different than lying... ALSO YOU SAY - "MOST PEOPLE DON'T BUY VOTES FOR INTRODUCTORY POSTS!" YOU ARE CORRECT!!! This is why I suggest THIS! If you want to get the results most people get when they first start (which is no votes, no attention, no recognition, NOT INVESTING IN STEEM AND NOT BUYING VOTES)... COPY THEM... NOT ME. If you want to get DIFFERENT RESULTS and BUILD a FOLLOWING like I AM -- THEN COPY ME and FOLLOW ME :) use the advice I offer in my videos... it's just a choice.

To conclude its just a choice... but the RESULTS don't lie on STEEMIT. Just Look at my profile and earnings for the PROOF.

Bots allow for DELEGATION by any steemian and gives steemians a way to earn passive income on their steem power. This is an incredible service...

Sure, you could earn a passive income through delegating to a bot. But you're also giving away your own voting power at the same time. So it's actually quite a terrible service if your intention is using your stake. A much smarter option is to sell your votes via Minnowbooster or Smartsteem if you're not using your Steem Power. That way you can still use your voting power if you choose to. Delegating to bots should be a persons last choice for passive income.

Without bots STEEM price would be WAY LOWER than it is today...

What a pathetic statement. What you're saying here is that no other Steemit user will power up their earnings. How insulting.

what is MORE important is GIVING and CREATING GOOD CONTENT CONSISTENTLY.

I never said this wasn't important. It goes without saying. Steemit is a platform that rewards content creation. Big wow for the benefits of creating good content.

When you focus on "networking and finding a community" your focusing on trying to GET something before GIVING -- I.E. If I join this community, what you YOU give me in return?

Only a narcissist would take this point of view so it's no surprise to see a statement like this come from you.

For me, networking on Steemit has always been about building relationships. And to build a good relationship with someone there has to be give and take from both sides. So I give everything I can to the communities that I am part of and in return, the people who choose to will give to me in return.

The key is to not expect to be given anything, but when building strong relationships you will certainly receive some form of benefit.

This can work but the the results are not nearly as good and its coming from a very SCARCE and NEEDY place.

I'm not going to address your comment about "follow for follow" because I never mentioned that as an effective strategy, it simply isn't. It also has nothing to do with networking and communities.

What I will say is that you have more than 12,000 followers and your posts where you haven't purchased votes are earning you a little over $1. (As a side note, you're also re-posting content for some absurd reason).

Screen Shot 2018-10-06 at 8.53.23 am.png

You're strategy of buying attention and views isn't working. Unless of course you're profiting from buying votes. Which is a risky move with voting services. My posts earn more than yours organically, and I don't buy votes very often at all.

You keep telling us that your strategy works. But it doesn't. You keep telling us to delegate to bots, to buy votes, and to buy your courses. But it's clear that this is only to benefit you and you alone.

I think this comment is the most accurate in everything thing you have said so far:

Do I make mistakes? Am I wrong sometimes? All of the time... and I admit that openly and honestly...

You are indeed wrong, all of the time. Your advice is terrible, all of the time. You should stop trying to be an educator and just focus on making entertaining videos. Do a Jerry and vanish from the trending page please.

To conclude its just a choice... but the RESULTS don't lie on STEEMIT. Just Look at my profile and earnings for the PROOF.

I have indeed looked at your profile, and the proof is that when you don't buy votes your posts perform terribly, and you barely get a single comment.

That's enough proof for me. Your strategy is awful at best.

Very helpful article! Thanks :)

Thanks for your guide to newbie in steemit it's great from you

My flag may not be worth much Joe but you just received the full 100% value of it.

Your constant promotion of insanely bad advice is getting extremely tiring.

We all know, yourself included, that upvoting services really only benefit the owner of the bot. Not the vote purchaser. Nothing more needs to be said.

·

Thank you for your comments mazzle, I will be responding to your other comments below shortly and addressing the upvoting services again.

No need mate.

good info thanks

Dude thx. I will be rich tomorrow.

Is it just me or is this guy an even bigger scammer than fucking jerrybanfield?! They even look similar... @nonamelefttouse This guy is a scam artist and a joker... I took the time to read your comments and his responses to them... and it made me dumber. He took back things he initially said on the video, he reworded things, and ultimately THIS is why steem hasnt completely taken off aka- People like this guy are WHY WE CANT HAVE NICE THINGS!
His account even says he is an instructor for over 350,000 students... Jesus pray for us all- actually pray for those 350,000 students. (Which seems like an insane amount of students to me...)

Hey Joe, Thanks for sharing that! And I got already your training on Udemy. =)

You have a lot of views on your youtube video. You must be a very great advisor and you have helped tons of people with this. You are great

So to sum it up: buy votes

A retarded post, posted by a retard, full of retarded comments and upvoted by retarded bots. Thanks for making steemit slightly more retarted.

By the way, has anyone told you that you look like jerry dumbfield? Just slightly more retarted.

·

It's a little ironic that you chose that comment to copy.

·
·

The only time I will ever upvote a copied comment.

It's interesting I was listening to an interesting "reply all" podcast yesterday. They were talking about drop shipping (essentially being the middle man for cheap Chinese goods). They found that the people that make the most money aren't the people who do the drop shipping - as there are tens of thousands of individuals that do it. No it is the people who "teach" others how to do it. The one's you see on youtube bragging about the profits they pull in.

Now I'm not saying this is what you're doing. But cheating the system is purely a hack. If your main goal is money then sure it may work. But the one's who are really making the penny are those who sit at the top and tell everyone they have the secrets and they should be listened to.

Here's a simple tip. Produce content on the Steem Blockchain not for the money, but because you enjoy it. The money will always be a bonus at that point and make you feel a lot better about yourself.

"Here's a simple tip. Produce content on the Steem Blockchain not for the money, but because you enjoy it. The money will always be a bonus at that point and make you feel a lot better about yourself."

This is exactly what I do and you could not be more right. I do not expect anyone to ever upvote any of my content. I think steemit is the coolest thing ever. I love making videos and if I can help people and earn a living isnt that a win win? And yes it is interesting people who are teaching now are earning money... this is the REASON why I quite teaching in the classroom as a school teacher! Money is not a motivator... but life is a lot more comfortable when you have some :)

Good earning program

Hi, I just upvoted you! Thanks for the tips my friend. For the beginner like me this is very helpful.

Thanks! It gives an idea... for beginners...

Could probably recommend this.

Good Afternoon. I came to SteemIt on advice to buy some crypto and that is where I started. I joined with 0 knowledge on what this platform was other than a place to have original content. I did a really horrible intro (not realizing how bad it was at the time) and asked for some help. I think I got one upvote and a few followers. I check back in from time to time to find out how my crypto is doing and have made a couple comments but not much more. I will be looking at your stuff in the near future in the hopes that I can figure out how to make original content and what kind of things people are looking for here. I am glad that you have taken some time to start showing people how to do some of this and look forward to seeing more in the future.
