Getting as much people as possible to view your post is one of the most important things on Steemit. The more people can see your post the bigger the chance that it will trend.

One of the tools to get some extra exposure for your post is with the resteem function.

How does it work?

When you submit a post this will appear in your follower’s post and also for a brief period of time on the “new” page. But if someone resteems your post then your post will also be visible in the resteemer’s followers feeds granting your post extra exposure.

There are a couple of reasons why it is recommended to resteem posts.


Share info

Resteeming is a great way to share info with your followers. For example if you happen to come across important news, you can resteem the post with the purpose of sharing the news with your followers. If the post is important enough it will start a chain reaction making sure that all Steemians will get notified.


Support your fellow Steemians

A great way for you to support Steemians who have just started out is to resteem their posts. Chances are that you have far more followers than the author of the post you are resteeming (if they are new to the platform). It’s just a great way of saying...Hey fellow Steemian, I really like what you are doing.
By resteeming other Steemian’s post you are actively promoting their posts.


Promote quality content

When you happen to stumble upon a gem of a post you can of course upvote it and leave a compliment to show your appreciation but in addition you can also resteem the post. By sharing and promoting quality content you are helping the platform and the author who made the post.


Benefits for you

There are a lot of benefits to resteeming not only for the author’s post you are resteeming but for you too. The biggest plus is that when you fill your feed with worthwhile content other Steemians will be more inclined to follow you. Even if you can write like it's nobody's business it doesn’t hurt to have some quality content from other Steemians in your feed also.

Things I would like to see

There is one thing though that I would like to see added to the resteem function and that is an option to comment when you resteem. This way you can let everyone know why you are resteeming the post

What are your thoughts on resteeming? let me know in the comment section.

I feel like Steemit needs to pick up the pace in transforming into the communities format ,,, it's got that feeling of treading water again the past month or so.

I figured we would have heard something by now about HF20, like when it is going to be implemented. Can't be long now.

Great tips for why you might want to do some resteeming - but how about best ways to get your own posts resteemed?

·

That's "easy" write something worthy of a resteem. Tutorials, breaking news are good examples of posts that get resteemed.

Like you mention, you need to resteem quality content to your audience.

One of the reasons I don't resteem more often is a lack of comment function. It would be nice to be able to point out why I felt the content was worthy of a resteem, or put my own commentary on it, or tag others who might specifically be interested in reading it.

I still resteem, but doing so absent the explanation always feels weird.

·

If people who follow you read the post you resteemed, they will likely see your comment. Do you think this could be a possible workaround until that functionality gets built into Steemit?

It's honestly about the only workaround possible at this point. Directly tagging people in the comment section is the other way I can think of, but that's just to bring an individual's attention to the matter, and it seems both spammy and time-consuming to @ a whole bunch of user names. :)

If it's any consolation, Twitter used to be a text box form, and now look at all the things you can do. You used to have to write RT for a retweet and hashtags weren't clickable. I agree about not tagging a list of people. Nice to meet you, by the way.

Great write up..... Upvote and resteem for you.
