Hey guys, my name is Spencer Coffman. Thank you for watching this YouTube channel, it’s all about making information known to you. We’ve got software reviews, plugin reviews, online hints and tips, social media how-to and lots of information about how you can be successful on the Steemit blogging platform. So you can spread your message, grow your following, and start making money online.
Today, we are going to talk about how you can rapidly frow your following on Steemit. We’re going to say the best three ways for you to grow your following to become a minnow, and then a dolphin, and then a whale. You’re already a minnow, you may be a dolphin, but you eventually want to become a whale. You want to get your reputation higher, you want to grow, you want to get more followers, upvotes, shares, resteems, etc. So how can you do that? Here we go. The best three ways to rapidly grow your following on Steemit.
Number One: Post regularly.
Posting regularly is a great way for you to build followers. Why? Because if you post regularly, that means more people can see your posts. You no doubt will notice on Steemit there are tons of people spamming the heck out of the place. You may post something and in 30 seconds, you’ll notice your post is like 4th down in the feed. An hour later, you you can’t even find your post because it’s so far down. This is because there are so many people that post worthless content that it buries your post.
So if you can post good content regularly, you have more chance of appearing in the feeds. Now obviously as time goes on, we’re hoping to crack down on some of the spam on Steemit by flagging people, reporting them, commenting on their posts, trying to encourage people to post valuable content. That’s the big goal of these videos is to teach people how to post valuable content so that it is worthwhile and that people will read it.
So if you post regularly, you give your followers something to look forward to, something they can depend on, and something they can rely on. If you say, “I’m going to post every Monday, Wednesday, Friday,” your followers know, boom, three times a week, they can count on your posts. They can set up a notification, they can know that at noon on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, you’re going to post. Now whatever time zone you’re in, if you say you’re going to post at noon on Eastern Time, then they would know, “okay that means that 2 p.m. on my time, or at 10 a.m. on my time”, your post is going to come out.
They can plan for it, they can count on reading it. They can schedule it and know when to upvote you. This is going to really help you get more upvotes because if I know that you’re going to post at noon, then I know when I can log on and upvote within the first 30 minutes so I can get some more rewards on your post. So that’s huge. Post regularly.
The Second Thing: Comment on introduction posts.
The reason this is so critical for you to do to grow followers is because when someone is new on Steemit, they don’t know anybody. They may know one or two people, but they don’t know many people. And their goal is to know more people. So if you comment on their post, now they know you. Now they’ve seen you. If you tell them, “hey, thank you for being here, I’m so glad you’re, you’re here, I liked this and this in your post. By the way, check out this post I wrote.” They’re probably going to check out your post.
Why? Because they have nothing else to do. They don’t know anyone. You took the time to comment on there post. They’re going to click on your link to check it out in general. It’s going to really help you grow your following and it’s going to really help you to get more established on Steemit. And it’s also going to help the new people grow. That’s why it’s so important.
And if you don’t know what to comment, feel free to share a link to my video on how to write a good introduction post, or anything on how to grow, or share some valuable information with them. Compile a list maybe. Maybe you want to give them your five favorite Steemit videos. Whether they’re mine, whether they’re someone else’s or a combination, share that information with them. Help them grow. Link them to the Wiki page for Steemit. Link them to something. Share some information with them and they will really appreciate it.
That is a great filler for comments, and you can watch another video that I have that is about commenting etiquette. I highly recommend it because there are so many people that just spam the comments with all kinds of pictures and all kinds of garbage and it really messes up the post. So watch this video right here in this card on commenting etiquette so you can know how to post proper comments that will get people to follow you and click on your posts.
The Third Thing Is: You need to be commenting on related posts.
So let’s say you have a blog about health and fitness. There are all kinds of other people on Steemit that are posting health and fitness articles, dieting articles, food, shakes, the stuff that they make, cooking recipes. Get on there, find those people, follow them, and make an effort to comment on their posts. Because if they are posting on something that’s related to you, they’re not your competitor on Steemit. That’s a great thing, there are no competitors because we’re all working together.
If you vote on them, they’ll vote on you, you both go up. So comment on their posts, because if they’re interested in something that you’re interested in, chances are they’re going to upvote and share your posts as well because it will help them promote more things to their audience. Their audience would technically be the same as your audience, so if you comment on their posts, their audience is going to see it, they may come and follow you, that person may come and follow you, you will really start to grow, and you’ll also start to make some good connections and some good friends.
So those are the top three things, the best things, that you need to do to start growing rapidly on Steemit. Post regularly, comment on introduction posts, and comment on related posts.
