Previous Promotional Experience

My back ground is in multi $Bn, international construction and project management along with an extensive experience in investing in the legacy stock, futures and options markets and the now prevailing crypto currency markets.

I have been promoting Steemit and the Steem blockchain since June 2017 and have been an instrumental part in organizing the platform's voluntary promotion community which now accounts for hundreds of posts per day on the #promo-steem tag, which is the 6th fastest growing tag on and has recently moved into the top 100 most popular tags on the platform.

My Story and Achievements as a Steemit / Steem Promoter

I started off collaborating with @stephenkendal in June 2017 when we expanded #promo-uk from posting flyers and business cards into an international movement on the promo-steem tag. During this time I have:

  • Flyered door to door
  • Written the "How we promote steemit and get paid" instructions (Aug 2017)
  • Started #promo-steem (Aug 2017)
  • Organised the first #promo-uk meet up in Birmingham (Sept 2017) HERE
  • Set up, planned and executed the #promo-uk Steemit University tour (Sept Oct 2017)
  • presented steemit at the London Investors Show (Oct 2017)
  • Attended and talked at Steemfest on the growth of #promo-uk and #promo-steem (Nov 2017)
  • Wrote white paper (Dec 2017) HERE
  • Wrote Content for the website (Dec 2017)
  • Set up and blog to the @steem-ambassador account
  • Carried out several #promo-steem public disruption marketing events with @dannyshine and @wierdside
  • Continuously used my the majority steem power to support other, smaller steemians promoting steemit on the #promo-steem tag in order to benefit the growth of the whole community
  • Supported many initiatives, especially those that encourage whales to use their Steem Power responsibly for the growth of steem and the community instead of for the growth of the individual whale's own steem power.

Why I Promote Steem / Steemit

I originally invested in Steem in November 2016, having researched the project and realised the potential of its decentralised nature for rewarding voluntary work. After having held through the painful 6 cents price low of April 2017 I decided to get involved in the only way I know how, by adding value. With my current skills, the best value I can currently add is through the promotion of the platform. So off I went. However the amazing steemit community gave back in droves! what a wonderful experience to be involved in promoting a community, that feels so passionately about itself,what it can achieve and the positive difference it can make in the world.

Once #promo-steem had grown to larger numbers, it was amazing to see how many peoples lives it positively affects every day. Now I am hooked, spending about 20-30 minutes every day scrolling through the #promo-steem tag to find the best promotional work done by volunteers from all over the world. This is truly a rewarding activity and really is changing peoples lives as they are encouraged to carry out positive voluntary actions that benefit the whole Steemit community. AWESOME!

Reasons for becoming a Steem Ambassador

  • I want to continue to support the Steemit community the best I can
  • I hope to continue to add value to the steem blockchain
  • I believe in the positive difference Steem can make in the world
  • I feel I am a trusted member of the community who can embody the #promo-steem name and continue to innovate to help others achieve their best using the steem blockchain.

Future Plans as a Steem Ambassador

  • To continue supporting the promo-steem tag and promo steem community with my steem power and personal time
  • Continue to be an advocate of Steem and Steemit
  • Contribute to the roll out the #promo-steem voting guild, website finalisation, Steem Ambassador Program and the various events that #promo-uk has planned such as the London Cryoto Currency Show (SEE HERE) & Steem Fair (SEE HERE)
  • Continue to do my best to reply to comments and upvote on the @steem-ambassador page & to liaise with the promo-steem community
  • Continue to advocate for and raise the profile of the #promo-steem community on Steemit and other social media platforms and with organizations and initiatives in real world
  • I hope that I can get support from the community here at steemit to support my Steem Ambassador Application

    you are doing a very good job man. we need people like you here :)

    You are unargueably one of the best people that have made my stay on steemit worthwhile...before i drop any post, i already pray inside me, if @starkerz can just upvote my post, i will be glad...lo and behold, you act like you hear what i say inside my mind. I must confess @starkerz, the posts that have given me the highest payouts has been because you were involved in the upvoting process....i'll just say thank you @starkerz for all the encouragement, wish you all the best in your steem ambassador journey....thank you


    So awesome to hear! Brought a rather large smile to my face!

    It has been a priviledge and a pleasure to be part of the #promo-steem team with Matt @starkerz, and I can tell you that in all the conversations we have behind the scenes, his vision and integrity are beyond reproach, and his committment to promoting the STEEM blockchain and the Steemit platform are exemplary. Part of the reason I am part of the core team is that he and @stephenkendal are my colleagues, mentors, friends, supporters, partners and fellow passionate advocates for blockchain, and specifically for this one. I know the work we have put into getting #promo-steem up there, both in terms of what you guys see here on the platform, and the vast amounts of time which has been committed to making this initiative a success. Without any hesitation whatsoever, I second, third and fourth this proposal.

    Great job, bro. The journey of promoting steemit has been smooth. Steem on, @starkerz. You are really a star on this platform. Thanks for all your support in my promotion work.


    Much appreciated @greatness96, the African steemit legend!!


    I'm glad you are back, bro. Having you around is a great encouragement. Though I don't know when your job will take you away again.

    There is no denying the impact you have been making on growing this platform and how you have helped a lot of minnows like me. You are a source of inspiration and you are simply phenomenal. Thank you for all you do. You will always have my vote anytime anyday.


    @starkerz is not just a promoter but also an helper who has helped a lot of us and still helping


    That man is simply amazing. He oozes awesomeness.


    Over amazing like we say yeah in Nigeria

    That's an amazing one @starkerz. Keep doing the good work sir. I admire your promo efforts


    Thank you @bait002


    It's good to see you blogging again especially about this particular content. It's been a while you know @starkerz


    I’ll be back on the boards soon! I know u have sent a lot of messages. I will get right on to them in the very near future!!

    Hi @starkerz ! Your actions speak for yourself! You have been doing amazing efforts to make Steemit and the Steem Blockchain a better place every day! And you have done all this with a great executed plan, that is working like the mechanisms of the clock. Congratulations for all the achievements and the name @steem-ambassador for you is just the title, but your name here and actions already put you that title for default!

    Its interesting to see how you have worked on the multi $Bn, international construction and project management. So you have been in-charge or currently of huge construction projects in the UK or overseas?
    I like construction and have been involved in private residential construction.

    Regards, @gold84


    Construction Overseas, generally in the middle of nowhere, I only work in frontier places ;)))


    Interesting @starkerz ! You continue doing construction managment?

    Regards, @gold84


    I have been out of the traditional job market for 2 years now.

    You have done an amazing job @starkerz for the promotion of Steemit. I can't imagine you not being a steem ambassador! I was already convinced from his presentation about the importance of #promo-steem, but after talking with him I realised #promo-steem is a revolutionairy movement.

    I am glad to be part of it!


    Very legendary you are :))

    Starkers was the one who introduced me to Steemit. A chance meeting at the Cuban Exchange openmic night in Wolverhampton. After hearing his enthusiasm for Steemit I had to give it a try . Now most of my family are on Steemit.

    I have been to one of his crypto seminars and the Birmingham Steemit meet up. I know how knowledgeable he is about all things crypto and his drive and faith in making the Steemit platform grow and grow is undeniably.

    He is already a massive promotional asset to the platform and becoming a Steem ambassador will only increase that.


    Thanks @brianhphotos ! Much appreciate this coming from u!!

    You have done a lot of work for this blockchain you have taken it to the next level with all your creative work and talent have put all the hard work behind it without giving up a single time have seen from the start you deserve every bit of it even words would fall short to describe your hard work !!!!! Go @starkerz wohooo :D


    Means a lot coming from u @blazing! Thanks for all the support over this time!!

    That's so awesome, man. You always fire me up when I watch your promo's.
    I Love what you're doing, keep up good work! :d

    nice to see you @starkerz on this mission and good to know your future plans as a Steem Ambassador. sure it will give good result which we imagine about steem and steemit

    THanks @robrowe really appreciate your ongoing support on the #promo-steem tag

    Once I was in a promotion campaign in my university. At first I thought it was an easy work.
    But found that it's not so easy and needs much effort and concentration to do something good. From this experience I can imagine how much hard work and effort you provided to promote this large fastest growing community. Your hard working will not be futile. Good luck 👍@starkerz

    That's one heck of an impressive application there Mr @starkerz.

    I think you got it nailed!

    Good to see another UK ambassador.


    Hey @pennsif, I see your event on Saturday went swimmingly! Congrats! Looking forward to the next one!!


    Thank you. I really didn't know beforehand how it would go. But for a first event it worked out really well. A couple of new recruits and a couple of really good ideas.

    Hi Starkerz - 100% supported - absolutely immense dedication and what a great application!

    On a seperate note - What do we have to do next to help you get the starkerz tag on the trending topics list - I'd summise that you need $1,000+ lifetime SBD payout associated with the tag!

    What you are doing for this community and your tireless efforts are commendable. You are truly worthy of Steem Ambassador and i wish there are stronger words than that. Thank you sir.


    Thank you so much!


    You are most welcome. I have only recently joined and seeing your posts and promo-steem i can see the efforts behind the scene. Well done once again sir.

    Reading your entry with all the achievements I think I have to up my games on promotions.
    You are such an amazing promoter.


    Thanks @samiwhyte. Really appreciate these words coming from u, one of the best promoters on the platform!


    Thank you sir
    It's great working with you sir
