Summary of January 2018 Results!


  1. The most successful ad on Facebook can be seen at https://www.facebook.com/jbanfield/videos/1517754641578040/ which features a video intended to help Facebook users discover the value of Steem!
  2. Our newest ad with the most impressions focused on helping ignite excitement about Steem in the cryptocurrency world as seen at https://www.facebook.com/jbanfield/videos/1661161520570684/. I decided to pause this ad and will try again with different ad text because the costs have been too high so far per share and page like.
  3. Ads for https://utopian.io/ reached 61,388 github users on Facebook.
  4. I focused about $100 this month specifically to South Korea where exchanges like https://upbit.com/ have helped cryptocurrency prices rise especially Steem!
  5. My goal with the ads is to get the best results for the lowest price which has consistently happened since starting the ads in June 2017.

Plans for February 2018!


  1. In February I will be submitting 25 posts from other users to Google for ads along with a matching video on Facebook from https://steemit.com/budget/@jerrybanfield/the-top-25-steem-posts. I will also be including the video from @tomasgeorge in the ads along with testing more ads of my own.
  2. We have over $5,000 remaining on payments already sent from @budgets to cover the ads for February and my hope is to hold off on sending more payments until Steem is $10+!

Funding!


  1. We funded this through payments from @budgets which earns through bids and delegations to my account's voting bot. Every day the bids from the voting bot pay out as follows: 45% of the bids received each day to @budgets to fund more projects, 45% back automatically to delegators in daily payments equal to about 1/1000 of the Steem power delegated, 5% to the bot operator @steembottracker, and 5% to @jerrybanfieldroi for my 104,000+ Steem power contributed effectively giving me a fractional percentage of what the rest of the delegators receive that I mostly use to upvote posts with my bot. While other bots may pay a higher percentage to the delegator, the ideal scenario for an investor is to both receive a return AND have the price of Steem go up. All the projects @budgets funds are intended to raise the value of Steem and therefore the price of Steem. Anyone can add the tag #budget to a post on a project intended to grow Steem and have a chance to receive funding! I like funding lower cost projects with clear goals like meetups, ad campaigns, and new apps.
  2. If you have not voted for me yet as a witness, will you please join now over 4,000 of us placing a vote for me at https://steemit.com/~witnesses because every witness vote helps increase the funding indefinitely along with helping me represent the future of Steem as a witness? If you think you have voted already, will you double check that the green checkmark is active next to my name because many of us have tried to vote multiple times and ended up removing the vote the second time?
  3. If you would like to convert some or all of your Steem power to passive income payments each day and help fund all growth projects for Steem including these ads, will you please use the tutorial I uploaded yesterday to delegate Steem power to me at https://steemit.com/steem/@jerrybanfield/65wju0wr because the delegations help increase the voting power of my account which is used exclusively as a voting bot?
  4. If you want me to upvote your post, will you please send a transfer to me of at least 1 SBD or 1 Steem with the link to your post in the URL because these are how the bids work on the bot? I recommend timing it with https://steembottracker.com/ for the best return.

Thank You!


I am very grateful for the chance to work at home today primarily on Steem a few hours every day and to earn enough income to support my family which includes paying down the $200,000+ in student loans @laurabanfield and I borrowed to get graduate degrees. I hope what I contribute on Steem helps many of us to earn enough to avoid borrowing money and needing to do work we do not love.

Thank you for giving me this chance to be of service today!

Love,
Jerry Banfield

I have not seen an ad for steemit on fb, but i also doubt i would ever click an ad on purpose unless they trick me

ads on Facebook are pretty much useless. People using facebook are pretty much blinded to ads.

·

Facebook announced that they are banning advertising for cryptos today. I wonder if that will include Steemit (and Steem). Could that be a factor in trying to stop migration of users away from Facebook? I didn't consider that in a brief post I wrote on the issue.... I thought they were simply trying to clean up the suspect advertising they've been scrutinized for lately...

https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@digitaldruid/quick-take-facebook-banning-advertising-for-cryptos

·
·

I guess so, especially as Steemit could be seen as competition to Facebook

·
·

Thank you, didnt know that...

But hé, 21K people signed up on Steemit yesterday, so i guess we're good!

·
·
·

While getting 24k new users yesterday was really nice, we still need a lot more new users if we want to become mainstream :) Getting people to convert from Facebook to Steemit could be huge for the growth of Steem!

·
·
·
·

You're correct,

but; new users should get some time to get familiar with the Steem blockchain and be confident to buys some at good prices as well!

·
·
·
·
·

Yeah, it is important to remember that it takes a while to get used to Steem(it). It can often feel overwhelming for new users here, especially those who have never touched a cryptocurrency before.

·
·
·
·

I like Steemit better. Only been here 2 days but like it much better already. Facebook is one thing but I notice we still getting alot of love on Google search engine. Lets pray that continues. In my short period of time here I can tell you that for investors this is by far better than Facebook. I love this community so far and look to grow here.

·
·
·
·
·

we still getting alot of love on Google search engine

We all need to keep posting links to Steem(it) from outside of the blockchain if we want this trend to continue ;)

Welcome by the way! I'm glad you like it better here than on Facebook!

·
·

Oh wow, this will most likely include Steem and Steemit.. This really sucks!

·
·

just saw your comment after posting the same thing. Facebook have battered ne for a whole month when it comes to posting steemit links across there

·

The problem is the users are desensitized to seeing the ads, and they no longer become useful. The good thing is that those who do see them, will hopefully see the Steem ads!

·
·

While I agree with the argument that many users are desensitized to adds, this is of course not completely true. Online ads is a billion dollar industry, so obviously the ones who are paying for the adds have to make a profit of it, or else they would not keep paying for it.

·
·
·

Wow. Love the all the metrics with the ads. Hopefully these ads will lead to new users. Very sophisticated advertising. Above my head.

PLEASE FIX THE SIGN UP PROCESS!!!

Dont get me wrong, I love steemit and Dtube (check out my page). But my older sister signed up for steemit the same day as me, and she STILL hasn't had her account approved! We also checked out AnonSteem but they charge ~$50 for accounts there.

I know we're not the only ones having this problem. Please fix the sign ups! So when all these millions of Facebook users come, they can actually get in!

thumbs up if you agree

·

I disagree, it stops the influx of fake and bot accounts, truly represents what a social media platform should do here on steemit. In my opinion, Facebook will try and implement a similar thing but I can’t see it working, especially due to steemit being so popular already. More and more people will forget Facebook and come to steemit for their daily dose of news :)

·
·

fake and bot accounts have existed since the beginning of social networks. And they have never stopped them from succeeding. Sure, a few bots might come through, but there are already bots on here now! (I know because I've seen one comment one of my vids and it actually said"I am a bot")

But by making it hard for legit users to sign up, you are giving them a sour taste in their mouth. Like I said, I got approved, but my sister hasn't. It's no fun using a social network when you can't even sign up your friends and family!

The masses dont care about bots and fake accounts. Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, etc get along just fine with them and most people don't care. Because it is a very small portion of accounts.

How can we expect to Youtubers to bring their audience over, if they can't even sign up for an account?

·
·
·

Well it limits it to a greater degree than Facebook and I love that about it, you can sit and point out all the negatives all day but that’s not going to develop and evolve the platform is it. How about looking at all the positive aspects and look long term, this time next year, dtube will be pulling in so many youtubers, specially those that had been demonetised recently. A decentralised social network/video blog community is just what the world needs, they jut don’t necessarily know that yet :)

·
·

it stops the influx of fake and bot accounts

I respectfully disagree with this statement. I think most spam/fake/bot accounts are made by users who already have a Steem account, and it is very easy for those of us who already have some SP to create a new account. The slow sign-up process is only harming new users who want to join the site with their first account.

·
·
·

They get flagged and will eventually have little reputation on here. And how’d you know it’s not someone just commenting on your post saying ‘I’m a bot’ to make you think That? It’s a reverse psychology thing, to make you think if you upvote their comments or follow them that you’re going to be able to generate income faster. I ignore all bot comments and often flag them

·
·
·
·

They get flagged and will eventually have little reputation on here

And then the main account can just undelegate their SP and create a new bot in 20 seconds. At this point it is extremely easy to create lots of spambots without any real problems, since you can just dump all the downvotes bots anyway.

·
·
·
·
·

You seem to have a lot more info than myself so I have decided to follow you :) thanks for replying! Have an awesome day and week!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Thank you! Have a nice week yourself, @cryptattoo!

·
·

I agree on your disagree, and sorry but not sorry if someone is caught in a few days o weeks on being registered, we don't want flood, and there's only 1 way to prevent it.

·
·
·

At least one of you gets its :’P lol

·
·
·
·

I've learnt not to be a crybaby about waiting in line for soemthing taht's worth :p
Now i just have to learn propper english xD

·

Had to apply multiple times before it seemed to be working at all. Then had to wait a week. This alone can cause people to go elsewhere :-/

·
·

Yeah, it can be very problematic for users who don't have a lot of patience. But a fix is coming in the next hardfork, so at least that's good news :) The bad news is that no one knows when the next hardfork is planned..

·

It will most likely be fixed when Hardfork 20 is released, but who knows when that will happen..

·

I do agree. i understand a few days maybe 3 to 5 working days but my case was 2 weeks so straight away I thought that's going to create a retention problem. Most people nowadays would forget they even signed up to something that long after unless they were like really eager like myself. I have created capture pages for the people i invite so at least i can automate some educational emails in between the waiting period.

shift is happening for a while now

We don't need Facebook people on Steemit! 🤣

·

The people on Facebook need us!

·
·

I agree!! I find myself looking at FB less now, the only reason I go there now is for work (I work for a marketing agency).

·
·
·

At the times that I didnt still discover Steem yet,I spend too much time in facebook,but now that I'm on Steem ,I find here more interesting..

·
·
·
·

Hehe, isn't it nice to get paid for spending your time on social media for a change? ;)

·
·
·
·
·

@valth ..yes,it's really amazing that I can earn at social media..I've already followed you,hope you will follow me too so that I can have my great time here😊..

·
·

Giving an explanation is always better then talking numbers in my opinion, especially now with what happened with Bitconnect. Coming to a realization yourself about the money making potential of Steemit will have a much greater impact then telling them it might go from $5-$100.
When every single alt coin rep is saying the same thing, repeating it has a negative instead positive impact you are looking for. We are talking facebook here.
Gotta spin it. :D

Just my 0.01 SBD :D

·

True but there are people there who doesn't know that something better is out there where they can actually contribute , share and make money while doing it. :-)

·
·

Yeah, we need to let people know that there are good alternatives to Facebook and other social medias!

·

The structure of Steemit itself is what drives the cultural development here. "Facebook people" will behave differently in different environments like anyone else.

·
·

That's a very interesting way to look at it, and I hope you are right. I don't think traditional "Facebook behavior" will really be valuable here anyway, so people might have to change their behavior if they want to earn money.

·
·
·

Enabling a free market dynamic in social media is an interesting experiment, to say the least. The more we promote valued connectivity the more readily we evolve, IMHO.

·
·
·
·

Yeah, absolutely! I think we are seeing both the best and the worst of humans in this experiment :P

·

I think we should try to establish bridges to the facebook world. I have around 1200 followers on facebook. Right now it is not very attractive to follow me on steemit. And it is not easy to understand what steemit is all about. But if they read the good quality posts and get involved they will join. And more important : They start to produce own content and get more SP.

·

Wow, that's not a very nice thing to say. People who use Facebook are not lesser than anyone else. I believe that Steem should be open to everyone, even if they have spent a lot of time on Facebook in the past.

·

Can Facebook People become Steemit People?

·
·

Sure, Facebook people are not necessarily bad or stupid people; they are just people who prefer to use what they know instead of trying something new. If we help then with the change, then of course they can become Steemit people :)

·
·
·

agreed, we help people transition to better alternatives than Facebook, such as Steemit, Minds, Gab, and whatever happened to vid.me?
http://www.vid.me

·
·
·
·

I have no idea; I have never heard of vid.me before. But DTube is working pretty nice as an alternative to YouTube ;)

There was some rumors FB that they will not allow ads about crypto no more

Wow this is great, thanks for spreading awareness on steem

Will this be stopped by facebooks ban of Crypto ads?

·

I would assume that it will be :(

·
·

Dang. Well it had a good run while it did, I'm sure it brought in a few thousand people at least.

·
·
·

Yeah, it probably did! But I suppose Jerry can spend the money on other forms of advertisements on other websites to bring in new people. Sadly for the people of Facebook they will no longer be getting a better option delivered to their feed, but there's not much we can do about that anymore.

·
·
·
·

Hopefully word could spread organically, but yeah I agree with your points :(

·
·
·
·
·

We must all spread the word about Steemit, and we will have a huge organic growth! I think telling our friends, family and coworkers can be much better than buying ads in the long run ;)

·
·
·
·
·
·

Agreed! I'll be looking forward to sharing this platform when the time is right! :D

Thanks for all you're doing for us @jerrybanfield! So Inspiring!

Hi Jerry,

Really want to thank you for all the time and effort you put into this great platform.

There is a pretty active discussion in progress on steemit as to "where will the money come from to continue to pay the authors and curators?"

I've been asked to pose this question directly to you.

https://steemit.com/ponzi/@bycoleman/where-does-all-the-money-come-from-on-steemit-how-long-can-it-continue

Thanks,

more good news coming for steemis , hold ur steem my friends

·

I Agree! Hodl!!!

·

Yeah, this is a good time to hodl all the Steem you got ;)

That's awesome! I regularly post Steemit to my Facebook friends as well as my 9000+ Twitter followers. I am an addict!

·

It's great to hear that you are promoting Steemit to 9k people regularly! Keep up the great work :D

·
·

Thank you! I certainly will. This has become my primary online focus.

·
·
·

Oh, that's cool! This platform is not only nice for making some money, there are also lots of cool people here, so I get why you have changed to using primarily Steem ;)

The steemit platform is really gaining prominence, I didn't anticipate this quick growth.

·

I Agree, It Is Going Places! Nice Comment, Following YOU!

·
·
·
·
·

Just curious are you into personal development books?

·

Agreed, Wendie. Truly. Steemit is a good kind of cancer oatmeal mud thing.

·

@wendie I thought the Same earlier today! Mass adoption happens so quickly, it’s unfolding right before our eyes though! A true decentralised social media platform that rewards its users to participate and create quality content / onstructive comments. It’s absolutely genius imo :D new follower from me, self employed tattooist from the uk, crypto enthusiast and now part tike steemit blogger lol , upvoted and look forward to seeing more from you in the future! :D

·

We've really got the ball rolling! Once hardfork 20 is released it will be even more new users, and there's no stopping the momentum now! :D

you are doing a good work for the steemit comunity Jerry!

Way to go steemit actually i am not facebooking as much as before i become a steemian really i am spending more time on steemit it give the feeling of a small beautifull town in here.
Thank you for the post @jerrybanfield

·

That's what happens once you get going with Steemit; you have no time for other social media :)

·
·

Hahaha @valth ur totally right and when u see your growing on steemit i get more addicted to it that’s true
Hope the best for u on steemit 👍🏼

·
·
·

I hope the same for you, @rabihfarhat :) And try not to get too addicted ;)

·
·
·
·

Hahaha actually i wish if i have enough time to be on steemit but i have only a little time in the evening.
Thank you for the advice

That seems an amazing plan !! 😃😃 You are one of the crucial faces of steemit, very much responsible for steemit’s growth.

I am glad steemit has someone like you who is doing so much to promote it.

I give you my best wishes. Keep up the good work.

355C13FD-2494-48C0-98ED-27610F5EBF7C.png

This is great news! And this platform is awesome. I have been asking my followers on your tube and other social media to join Steem and help build this community! Thank you Jerry for all you do and the great information you put out about Steem!!

Thanks for keeping us up on things money well spent ............up up up away my Steemians

S.E.O. of steemit is going high now, soon it will be the top search in google

·

That's a good point. And we all need to be better at linking to Steemit from other websites if we want the SEO rankings to increase ;)

·
·

yup sure :)

thanks for share this information.......

When steem breaks Facebook in half it’ll all be on you jerry ;-)

·

@whatamidoing maybe Mark Zuckerberg will give me a call one day?

·
·

And an offer you can’t refuse ;-)

Bro ur work is really great and u are an inspiration for all of the newbies. u are very affectinate to the steemians and we greatly appreciate ur efforts. wish u best of luck for ur further proceedings.

That's Great ....let's wait for the bust of growth of Steemit.People like you can take it too far.

Thank you for sharing this insights. It's nice so these numbers go UP.

Wao!!! Steemit is really moving with the speed of light. Thanks bro for the information.

Awesome work bro! Great to see it happen.

Good work! Thank you for raising awareness for this awesome platform.

There's just something about Steemit ads on Facebook that makes me giggle a little. Hee! Thanks for everything you do to promote Steemit, @jerrybanfield!

It’s amazing how you’re able to work from home and support your family and we have steemit to thank for the great platform! Let’s hope in 2018 steemit grows even further! Thank you for all your hard work @jerrybanfield I’ve watched all your videos and the tips you’ve given me are worth so much more than the dollar sign I see!

@jerrrybanfield I watched your Apr 30% delegate video, I really liked, and I will delegates you, my steem power.

thats amazing steemania @jerrybanfield keep it up

Thank you very much, I think it's about time.

Heyy I really like your posts! You were actually the one who made me join steemit! :) I love it so far, but it can be hard to get noticed in the beginning. Anyways thank you for making great quality posts!

This is very useful to beginners like me!!! I am learning things from your posts.Thank you very much for the support you give us
-cheers-

Your life charger, Jah man!

@jerrybanfield if stemit had an affiliate program, getting ads in front of people would be much easier.

·

But just imagine how much spam you would see about Steemit all over the place.. I don't think people who are spamming their affiliate links is going to create that much long-term value to be honest.

I belive that facebook ads send their promotion to alot of people but not all of those persons sees the ad, maybe they are on the phone and scroll over it. In the other hand you mention you have 461,115 impressions on google that means that those people were really interested in the ad. thats why i think google adwords promotion Its better even tho it doesnt have the numbers of facebooks promotion

congratulations @jerrybanfield,good luck continued with your program Dr. @ / follow me @anwars

Thanks @jerrybanfield for all you're doing for us

Such an informative post thank you ! I think the steemit bandwagon is very full right now and so many people piling on board, the waiting period is the most annoying but once you finally get approved, the benefits outweigh these minor difficulties in the signup process! I love your blogs and always upvote, look forward to seeing more from you throughout the remainder of 2018! ;) @jerrybanfield

I wachted it to the end !

Talking about ads, I may suggest one that is the most inventive business and commercial. DollarShaveClub.

@jerrybanfield i believe in you,,

I changed the bio links on all social media sites I'm on from YouTube to Steemit. I'm using all the points I have on Minds.com to bring traffic here. All my YouTube channels are now just advertisements for Steemit. I'm suggesting all youtubers demonetized to switch to DTube. We all need to do our part to raise awareness about Steemit no matter how big or small.

Very good info friends, honest you make a very good content, can you visit my blog

maxresdefault (1).jpgСпасибо за все что ты делаешь для нас

Jerry, you're the hardest working man on Steemit. Thanks for all that you do to spread awareness of this amazing platform.

The days are not far away when facebook and youtube will realize the strength of steemit.

You are right if all those in the steemit not only win the Soviets support the currency and will not die like the currencies that have disappeared
More users more power More prosperity

the ads where great I was introduced to steemit and join.

·

It's good to see that these ads actually bring in new users! Welcome to Steemit :)

Thanks for getting the word out. Impressions are fine but what's the conversion rate?

Thanks you so much!!

Amazing post @jerrybanfield
I have noticed you are a steem WHALE and i truly wants to be like you.
Anyway am Joe and please Whale, can i get on your following list please.
I will love to reas and upvote you always and i want you to do same with due respect boss.
Am a new Steemian and you are my steem Godfather for real.
I lovr you.

That is fantastic!
Thanks Jerry,
I came here through your Stackskills promotion in the first place.
And I really like it, trying also to get more friends to this platform.
( convinced 4 of them so far )

Wow thats great man

The real question is: What is the reasonably expected market share in a post-Youtube world?

·

That's a good question. I believe Steem and DTube will see a huge growth following the demonetization of so many YouTube channels.

great update... steemit is so helpful!

He he ... why can't we all get along? Or, changing the cliche - Can't we all (Facebook & us) get along? Small_1f60b.png

thanks alot for everything you do :)

So probably a lot of people will wake up and steem will get more signs ups.
Let´s grow Steemit!

Hope one day we can get billion of people on steem....

This is great news, @jerrybanfield :D This will absolutely bring in some more great people to our platform.

That's why I'm coming on your profile again and again. Keep sharing such news with us. :)
I love the way you are sharing your knowledge with us.

yeah
Before the end of the year...majority of facebookers will be sharing their testimonies about the steem blockchain

the end of centralised social media is coming! ! they sellings people data without nothing in return

IMPORTANT!!!

Facebook just banned ads for cryptocurrencies, ico's and other financial products.

I guess @jerrybanfield needs to find some other way to target social media users then, or throw more money at Google Adwords. Either way, this is pretty bad news for this project..

With The Helpful Information Once Again Im a Fan And a Friend Thank For For Getting Me Interested In Joining steam

Hi @jerrybanfield,

As always, I like your posts.

This time I would like to ask you for a favor:

Can you, please, take a look at this message and show your generosity to these minnows?

https://steemit.com/steemit/@chloeroy/supporting-minnows-we-are-supporting-the-steem-future

This is also a way to get more users from FB to Steem !!!

Thank you very much!

Really good job guys, Keep it up !
Steemit > Facebook soon !

@jerrybanfield
Great post as always. I am greatful too for having platforms that enables anyone who is even mildly creative the opportunity to generate an income. The current situation with the institutions, bankers/Banksters institutions etc. with all their futures contracts and minipulation is causing havoc in the crypto world.

Once again the big fish/players get to do just what they want and get enormous gains from exploiting the masses!

The irony of it all is that in our quest to convince these thugs that crypto is real we may have inadvertantly contributed to the demise of the ordinary guy earning a an income and the spreading of the world wealth amongst the poor instead of fattening the rich. With all the promoting and advertising and convincing we have been doing over the past nine years we have managed to attract the attention of the very people who will destroy this great revolution.

We were just fine until November last year when everything was running ok, we had our ups and downs but never like we see today, all because these fat cats have now taken over and basically muscled the little guy out. Just my thoughts.

I wish we could go back to the days when very few people even knew what bitcoin was. I think it is in fact their intention to destroy crypto as it poses a huge threat to their arcaic approach to money, and it would mean they have to give up part of their kingdom to give back to the poor.

I may be totally off base with those thoughts, but I think I speak for most ordinary people we are sick of 1% minipulating and controlling all of our lives without a second thought for the rest of us. If they ever did want to "spread the love" they had 1000's of years to do so, and they did not, so what makes us think it will be any different once they gain the lions share again in crypto.

Apologies for the rant, lol had to get that off my chest.

stay blessed.

Thank you for Analytics and statistics. Excellent work. And video helpful ))

information is power,thanks

Thank you for all your good work to promote steemit @jerrybanfield

You are definitely the person who brought the most users on Steemit!

That's cool, People who think that ads on facebook are useless, They are wrong..!! It makes a huge difference..!!

Hello Jerry you good steem page very nice you good your article I interesting your page reply follow me thanks

Facebook has a new ads policy. I think they've banned all cryptocurrency related ads.
https://www.facebook.com/policies/ads/prohibited_content/prohibited_financial_products_and_services

STEEM TO THE MOON ✈

This is just amazing!

Wonderful update... steemit is growing and yes, your contributions have bern so so helpful!

I've been sharing my blog on Facebook and also been trying to encourage my 17,000 Instagram followers. I just started blogging on steemit a couple weeks ago. I love the idea and the platform. However being a new user my bandwidth is extemely limited. There needs to be more bandwidth deligated to new users so they won't get frustrated and give up. I'm a very patient man but most people aren't. It's not the most user friendly site in the world. Not being able to comment and post isn't the best arguement for an uncensored platform. I'm essentially censored and my voice isn't heard. I only post once or twice a day, but I am a bit too chatty apparently. If you could help to alleviate this situation from your end all the minnows would be ever so grateful. I was even deligated 20 steempower from a kind person, but that only helped for a about 24 hours. Anyway thanks for everything you are doing to grow the success of steemit. I will do everything I can as well.

Thanks for the article @jerrybanfield, everyone needs to be on Steemit.

BREAKING NEWS: Facebook has just banned all ads for Bitcoin, Icos, and cryptocurrencies!

Check out my post on why Facebook is no longer allowing ads for cryptocurrencies. https://d.tube/#!/v/dwade1/bsduyime

How can Steemit get around that?

·

I'm afraid it cannot get around this. There is no way to argue that Seem is not a cryptocurrency, so I guess he will have to stop promoting it on Facebook :(

It's nice to hear that STEEM & Dtube are spreading and growing!

wow its amazing how you guys got this platform spread to so many people without spending an insane amount. I have personally seen the ads for steemit and i love them. I know other people make free vids of steemit and post it on youtube which is like a free ad! I was one of the people who posted a youtube video about how amazing steemit is (:

I watched the whole video

Good Job Jerry, glad your bringing attention to this great platform.

Jerry,
I m not one to put out FUD and haven't had time to check yet but did Facebook discontinue cryptocurrency advertising today?

your videos are very informative.

While most of the time you are doing very good videos and honest to earth here on your steemit, you forced it a little bit too much like an infomertial on that first video and it looks like all those many other scams you see on the internet.

don't over act it, don't try to push words so much outside with these over exagerrated body langage moves that , i know, are made to pulse and bear your words with a dynamic and visual feel, you already do it on your videos on steemit but it is way less "obvious" and subtle, you should keep that approach, i mean, the very down to earth and honest advice kind of videos you are already making on steemit.

It was a little bit over the top when i really love your other videos here, you don't need to force your words into people's screen as much as you have done it in the facebook ad. (because it's an overdone marketting ploy and really feel unnatural when pushed too much, disconnected.)

I hope this critique can help you for future videos ^^

Good work in sharing Steemit with the world. I'm Oatmeal. Liked. Shared. Upvoted. Resteemed.

Thanks for your post..

But sad thing is that most people around me still think steemit, blockchain, and crypto$ are all scams and frauds, no matter what I've said and shown them.

That being said, I've managed to pull a handful of people to stemmit.
