Welcome to Advertise!

What is Advertise?

Advertise is a service created to "boost," or promote content creators, services, and communities at a much cheaper rate than other methods of reaching the trending page on Steemit using your own funds.

What does getting boosted mean?

We will write a post about your bot/community or you can write and format a post, and we will publish it. From there, we will boost the post to the trending page using bots like @booster and @postpromoter.

Why is using @Advertise better than normal advertisements?

Advertise is the next generation of advertising, where everyone can gain from the advertisements advertised. Advertise had a very selective application process where we will only advertise services or communities that benefit the platform they operate on in some way. Along with writing posts about beneficial services, we will run giveaways in every advertisement. Learn more about that below.

How do we sign up?

Advertise is currently in application-only mode. Before you apply, we require a 1 steem deposit and processing fee sent to @Advertise. Make sure to use a unique memo that you will later list in the form to verify who you are. If you send the deposit fee without submitting a form, you will be refunded¹ 1 steem.

You can click here to be sent to the application. Once we review your application you will receive a DM on Discord or an email letting you know if you have been approved or not.

1- WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS FOR REJECTED APPLICANTS

1 - We will refund the 1 Steem application fee to any rejected applicants, and anyone who is accepted will have 1 steem taken off their final price.

How much does getting boosted cost?

Giveaways!

To boost community growth, we run giveaways along with advertisement posts. When we create a new advertisement post, we will run a giveaway to people who join the service or community advertised, as an incentive to support the service we are advertising, and give back to the community for supporting services and communities that support their platform.

In this post, we will be giving away 5 SBI shares. To be elligible for the giveaway, leave a comment below!

Advertise is a service run by @KiwiJuce3. If you have any questions or concerns, please comment them below or ask in the Discord above.

Sort:  

So you're offering to write posts worthy of being on the trending page but don't know the difference between "then" and "than"?

I understand the intent of your service but I don't think it's one that's truly needed on Steemit.

This sounds more like "give us money to cover potential losses from bids; maybe people will actually look at it".

I mean we've had about 20-30 actual people respond to this post and/or join our Discord, so there is definitely engagements with posts that reach the front page. While the money does cover potential losses we have, it's also a lot less then what paying to get your own post up to the front page about your community costs.

I suppose. As long as you guys check submissions for plagiarism, etc., it should be generally free from flags.

Oh we're definitely going to be reviewing any post submitted to be boosted very thoroughly to make sure there is no plagiarized content, nothing too controversial, or nothing that should not be there.

I'm going to blame this on the fact that I stayed up late last night writing this and was too sleep-deprived to go back and proof read, gimme a sec while I fix that!

Than and Then fixed, thanks for that!

Do you want to discuss why you don't feel a service like ours is needed on the platform? As of right now small communities are often stuck where they are or growing slowly because of a lack of advertisement, and as can be shown by the amount of people engaging with this post, the trending page is an effective way of getting your name out there.

People don't like advertisement. Build up real relationships instead. This post is written in a sleazy way. People don't want someone to come in with their lame greedy mindset. Especially stealing people's money if they would get rejected.

It's a 1 steem application fee. That just prevents people from trying to sign up that do not have the funds to use our service, or people that don't expect to get accepted from filling up the queues. If someone is accepted, That amount is taken off their final price.

People don't like advertisements, I agree. Unfortunately, there is almost no better way to boost communities that don't have funds to help themselves. @Curie ran a great community-helping program a bit ago, but that's over and there are few things to help communities grow since.

Due to what we're going to call popular support of that not being a thing, We've changed it. We will now refund any rejected applicants the 1 steem registration fee and we will take off 1 steem from the final price of accepted applicants.

Please shut it down. You will only lose your time with this kind of software.

What software? This service is entirely run by people.

This service was purely made to give me something to do. I don't plan on profiting from the things I create like @KiwiBot or @CurationKiwi, I often use whatever profits I get to launch something else to spend my time on.

We think you have planned a good service here. However, to get 30SBD to create a worthy post you will have to demonstrate that content produced by your team is good.

We are willing to use your service once we see some sample posts trended by your service.

Our team is also the team that works on @KiwiBot, you can pop over there and check out some of those posts to see our writing style. This post is probably the closest example to what an advertisement post will look like - here

You can also check out my writing style specifically on this post here and our other writer's writing style on his blog @shunnedscarab55.

We have about 2-3 posts lined up for the next couple of weeks, so you can certainly wait until then to see how you like our work then!

Really a good project for promoting services and other project with this user can promote there project with some fees mean making your post show on top trending is so much expensive then giving some fees to @advertise and also peoples can claim curatoin rewards.

Very unique initiative to project some focus light on a creator, service or community and to help him gain exposure and visibilty in this platform. Thou I am a plankton, I will try my level best to get connect with you and subscribe to your service.

Procedural services are hopeless nowadays....

  • Paid resteem services have their own curation trail to upvote you but you eill not gain any actual followers who will be interested in your work or admire your post.
  • Bidbots are now too self profitable, only whales and dolphins use them yo be on trending, but they sre not for smaller accounts.

In this situation, we all need a unique idea or project which will make us visible in the crowd.
I believe Advertise will be a successful project and Will rule the steemit!

What are you talking about? Are you the following?

Advertise had a very selective application process where we will only advertise services or communities that benefit the platform they operate on in some way.

Didn't think so.

Congratulations!

I'm not convinced

Posted using Partiko Android

What are you not convinced of?

How is this system not a scheme to grow the advertise account using bid bots without having to even write a post? That's what has me unconvinced.

The Advertise team is writing the posts though?

Hmmm I guess I misunderstood something on my first read through the post or something, I didn't quite catch the part where it says it's basically advertisement for communities or services only...

I get it now, I thought you were going to take any post someone else wrote, charge them and then upvote it to trending and keep everything lol but if it's for services and communities it's actually a decent service, my bad.

No problem at all! We noticed there are many good communities that deserve some recognition but are never able to build up enough steem to get themselves to the front page, so we tried to help them out a little, by offering methods to get to the front page for cheap, and methods to get there even cheaper (but with a little more work). This is only intended for services and communities, things that require users to join to stay alive.

You got a 39.63% upvote from @postpromoter courtesy of @advertise!

Want to promote your posts too? Check out the Steem Bot Tracker website for more info. If you would like to support the development of @postpromoter and the bot tracker please vote for @yabapmatt for witness!

From there, we will boost the post to the trending page using bots like @booster and @postpromoter.

Downvoted for proposing an initiative that will drain our rewards pool.

Unfortunately, there is no better solution to promote things that help the blockchain.

Advertise only promotes services and communities that help the blockchain. We are hoping to receive many users from communities that support and help grow minnow bloggers or services that provide free support to smaller posters. By doing this, we can indirectly encourage more of a community feel on Steemit, promoting upvoting great posters and eventually pushing people away from using bidbots to grow. While we might drain the rewards pool in the short term, less minnows will need to use bidbots themselves and will be able to receive legitimate upvotes and readers without paying for it if all goes according to plan.

In fact, our discord has a room named #curationkiwi where you can use the command !upvote (post) to receive free upvotes on your post. We established this to go with the narrative that we want to help grow minnows and natural reader activity.

Thanks for your explanation. For this platform to survive it is essential to move away from paying bid-bots. Steem is sorely lacking a good community spirit right now. This is sad because this wasn't always the case. Good luck to you.

Great way to advertise and get more exposure on your post, I hope I'll be able to join you soon!

still a long way to go before i qualify for this. lol

Lol good luck!

I reallydont get this at all. So people can pay you to write a post and then use upvote bots to promote it? Cheaper than what?,Doing it ourself? How doesmthatnwork exactly? No mention of return on investment and what you make out of this. A little transparency would be nice pleasembecause right now you tell us nothing and it all looks rather scammy if Im honest! No refunds for rejected applicant s? lol....? You're joking right? Thismis a windup?

We don't guarantee an ROI at all, but we boost posts about services/communities to high on the front page. Many people look through the trending page every day, with most posts getting 20-30 comments. We will run giveaways along advertisment posts for people who join the service or community to help provide a better ROI. The prices above are based off figures from my own bot, @KiwiBot and other bots like it, such as @Moonbot and @blissfish, looking at how many followers their account has compared to how much money they get a week, and how many subs they get when they boost a post to the front page. This method is cheaper than boosting your own post to the front page, which takes 200-300 Steem.

The application fee is only 1 Steem, and this allows us to filter out all of the spammy services. It's 1/10 of our cheapest option, cheap enough to stop services without the funds to use Advertise from filling up our application queue, and anyone we approve gets 1 steem off their final price.

I appreciate you actually taiing the time to reply, but I still dont see how you can boost a post into trending for just 30dollars ?

Posted using Partiko Android

We will use our own funds to boost your post (around 150-300 steem), the fees above are payments to @Advertise for our service.

so thd post is boosted under YOUR accouht name ?

Posted using Partiko Android

Yes, as written in the post we will write and publish the advertisement post.

Thats not clear that it would be published under your account though. So we pay money to you and get nothing except you publishing a post to trending on your account? lol...ok. Well at least everyone will understand now.
By the way, in your post, you mention that anyone commenting will get 5sbi shares. You might want to change that to 'someone' as you've basically offered everyone who comments on your post 5sbi shares and Im not sure that thats your intention!

Fixed the giveaway and clarified the "published under" part, thank you for your feedback!

Sounds really awesome, but I think if someone wants to be promoted, he/she should at least write a post themselves.
But that is just my personal opinion.

Greetings @lulu830

We are only running Advertise for services and communities, not individual bloggers, and we act as sort of a marketing team for said services and communities. We will analyze previous advertisements and see what we could do in order to get the most out of writing a post about them. Of course, we still offer a write-your-own-post option for those that want to try their own hand at making their post.

Thank you for your feedback!

Oh that makes sense, thanks for pointing that out.

Posted using Partiko Android

So, why use this and not use the funds to advertise my own post using bidbots?

With @Advertise you don't need to have 200-300 steem to boost your own post. Many communities need to use most of their funds to keep the community running, so having a cheaper way of getting to the front page is a great help to those communities.

Nice initiative and idea, honestly I still skeptic about this. Any new idea will effort to convince the public and users.
