Share your Steemit Content on (Other) Social-Media!
Broadcasting Steemit to the World
Have you ever shared your Steemit experiences with a broader audience? Perhaps to people who have not yet joined the Steemit social network? What medium have you used to reach out? Have you considered how your experiences here might change the way your profession works or community functions?
Today we’ll look at a few cases that illustrate movement from Steemit outwards in order to grow the influence of what we do here within the STEEM blockchain. With the recent success and incredible attention around @andrewmcmillan’s article in WIRED, we’ve been thinking more and more of how to cultivate outward-facing impact with the @sndbox community.
We implicitly grow and impact the Steemit community with our outside experiences (professional, social, cultural, creative, etc.) Simultaneously, we should also seek to impact the outside world leveraging our experiences in Steemit. For example with STEEM Park, a strong motivator was to prove to the New York and design communities that blockchain technology can be a revolutionary resource for imagining and building things.
Reaching Across the Aisle
Simple moves can orchestrate big impact. Sharing your Steemit blog post through other social media can help this new online community grow. @somethingburger is a hardworking Steemian who is actively broadcasting his work beyond the Steemit.com ecosystem.
@somethingburger is a scientist and a student. He's new to Steemit and still doesn't have a large following. However, he knows that the articles he writes may have value for others elsewhere. You can see the effect of his articles being shared on Reddit and Facebook (among other venues). While he may only receive a handful of upvotes, his articles reach hundreds of eyeballs all over the world.
Sharing Valuable Information
Cross-platform exchanges are critical for growth and the decimation of information. This broadcasting also helps transition users into Steemit with less of a premise of “Blog, Get Paid” and more of an understanding that Steemit is a viable social-media tool with an engaged audience and supportive platform. It also links specific professional and interest-groups (for example those that form in sub-reddits) with a direct community in Steemit.
Beyond the resources, tutorials, and curation posts each week - we’re planning on launching other forms and outlets of media to cultivate Steemit impact. Most recently, we launched our Sndbox twitter account. It’s proving to be a valuable tool to connect with other crypto enthusiasts and those just getting into blockchain technology but have not yet heard of Steemit.
Heading into 2018, we plan to experiment with various video platforms as well to provide audio and video support for Sndbox content. Other prominent Steemians have tried their hand at podcasts, live-streamed upvoting, vlogs, and other multimedia-based forms that strengthen Steemit’s outreach to the world. If you have any thoughts, let us know your ideas below!
