"60 Seconds of Steem" - Launching A Crowdsourced Marketing Campaign on DTube & Calling For Video Ad Creators! > $1,000 Steem in Sponsored Prizes

in dtube •  29 days ago

Words may inspire, but only action creates change. - Simon Sinek

To me one of the greatest benefits of a decentralized network is the ability to take action without needing to ask anyone for permission.

You rather ask for consensus, and that can actually become even more challenging and exciting than simply letting to approve a plan by one higher-ranking authority.

Only by being in control of a set of private keys and by holding a certain stake of Steem tokens (resource credits), one does have a say - and can in theory make a difference here.

Steem is a mechanism that rewards voluntary action. - Matt @starkerz, Co-Founder @oracle-d

The Marketing Proposal for Steem I presented a couple of days ago on-chain was quite well received by the community (thank you!), which inspired me to keep going in the same direction.

Often we agree on the same path but then it still requires someone to take the very first step, to raise their hand and say I'll do it.

You need to get that famous ball rollin'.

That's why I kindly invite you to follow me today launching a Crowdsourced Marketing Campaign for Steem.

Let's do this.

@heimindanger said when I told him about my idea.

I seriously loved that response :-)

Let's promote Steem to the world in the way the community decides.

We're calling on all video creators and vloggers in this network to produce a (commercial) video ad that promotes Steem.

There are no rules except these:

  • The video should be about 1 minute long: "60 seconds of Steem". *
  • It needs to be published on DTube being tagged with #sixtyseconds .
  • It can't contain third party elements, hence needs to be original.
  • It needs to be submitted until February 7th 2019, 09:00 EST.

For additional reach make sure to upload your video on Youtube, too, and include the link in the description of your DTube post.

Hint: You may bear in mind that Steem has multiple target groups which can even overlap (content creators, crypto enthusiasts, developers, investors,...).

Again, there are no rules on how the ad should look like or what message it should transmit (full freedom of creativity) - yet, the wider the audience you may be able to address with your ad, the higher the chances to be approved by the community and win the contest.

On the 8th of February all entries will be listed in a post published in this account - @surfermarly - and then the voting process begins.

The voting will be stake-weighted and end after 7 days on the 15th of February.

Campaign goal:

Let's tell the world about Steem.

The winning video ad should be spread by as many steemians as possible on the whole internet, aiming to create the largest media impact possible outside Steem's borders.

In order to generate the best impact possible, there will be a specific date and time recommended to publish / link the video ad in your (social) networks:

SAVE THE DATE: 20th of February 2019, 10:00 EST

Let's get this viral!

ad7bj5aly5.jpg

Saving the best for last: @dtube, @good-karma's eSteem, @nextgencrypto alias Bernie Sanders & Head of Steemfest @roelandp are sponsoring the campaign with some decent donations of Steem & SBD - thank you so much for the tailwind, guys!

If you want to appreciate their contribution: vote for their witnesses :-)

Thanks to the sponsorship, the winning ads of the contest will be rewarded as follows:

Winning ad: 511.111 Steem

2nd best ad: 411.111 Steem

3rd best ad: 111.111 SBD



The five best ads will get an upvote from @oracle-d as creamy topping :-) Please read the comment from @oracle-d under this post for further details.


I hope that'll inspire all talented filmmakers on Steem to participate in the contest and to create something big :-)

Now please if you have any questions, suggestions or comments on the campaign, feel free to reach out at any time.

I'll be also talking about the project on the State of Steem Forum hosted by @pennsif on the PAL discord server starting today at 3pm EST / 8pm UTC - join us there!

Don't forget to share this post with your vlogging friends and make sure they'll get a chance to participate.

Let's do this.

Side node:
This campaign is intended to encourage people to take some voluntary action and to share their ideas with others. If you feel that you don't have enough stake or influence and that your idea could probably not being heard: team up with others first, reach out to larger stakeholders directly, sell your ideas to them and get some tailwind for your plans.

Also you can basically crowdfund any idea you have using the Steem based application fundition.io - more on: @fundition.

Don't keep your ideas as a secret, they may be valuable for all of us.

Haha, challenge accepted with great pleasure! :-)

You guys rock - thanks a lot for the nice feedback and great support!!!

This is a great idea! I would like to donate 500 SBD to the prize pool. Just let me know where to send it. :)

·

Boom! Dan is the man!

·

Oh wow, what an extraordinarily generous move @theycallmedan! Fantastic!!
You can send the tokens directly to my wallet @surfermarly - do you have any suggestion regarding how to distribute those 500 SBD among the winners, or do you want me to decide?

Again, thanks for your great contribution - you really just put a HUGE smile on my face!! :-)

·
·

You can choose which way is best to distribute the 500 SBD. I will send shortly. And thank you for organizing this!

·
·
·

I’ll do an update post next week where I’ll inform the community about the additional prize :)

Welcome back with a bang Marly!!! Doing what an idol Steem Ambassador would do. ;) Cheers! And very interesting.

@ashtv, @waybeyondpadthai. You guys might be interested ;)

·

I have just resteemed this !!! Thanks for mentioning. I sure am interested :)

·
·

You are one of the best filmmakers I know on STEEM. Go kill it MO :')

·
·
·

Whoaaaaaaa!!! <3

Awesome! :D

·

Aaaaw, what a comment! Thank you so much - both for your lovely words and for spreading the word :-) I'm super excited to see the first entries!!

·
·

I am also very excited about this one. ;) And I am blown away by the response of other stakeholders to support this campaign. \m/

·
·
·

I’m totally blown away, too!! 😃

I did it since last year... We even already on the Indonesian national TV and newspaper... But anyway, we should do more... we need more #steem campaign. Though i was promoting Steemit at that time, I just wish Steemit.Inc do care what we all are doing.

·

Oh wow, that's an amazing piece of Art - LOVE IT!!!

I hope @ned, @elipowell, @birdinc and @andrarchy have seen this one already - great community spirit and fantastic achievement to even be featured on TV.

Are you going to participate in this contest, too?

·
·

Thank you, I don't think I can participate this time. Sorry, but I already have ideas about it. Anyway, I do really appreciate this contest, we do really need to make more people know and understand about steem.

Good luck!

·
·
·

Thanks a lot for the encouragement anyways 🙃

This is an interesting idea, especially because we are looking for a present and a bright future for the ecosystem Steem. We will take this idea to the creative parishioners of SteemChurch.

·

Thanks for making some noise within your community, it's much appreciated!
Let's hope for the best impact possible :-)

Much to my regret, I can't do videos. I don't even do cameras :) That will have to change, I think. However, I do social media. When this comes out, a vital part will be to make it "viral". That's when I'll jump in. I don't have to tell you this is a great initiative. What I can say is, I feel your energy and that's contagious.

·

Thanks for the great comment and your desire to contribute no matter what :-) The social media part will be a key driver to the campaign's success, so any support is more than appreciated here!

We'll have the winners after the 15th of February and the social media event is supposed to take place on the 20th, so just check my blog in that time period and you'll be provided with all the updates :-)

Steem on!

·
·

I'm going to put it on my calendar so I don't lose track. I love this platform and appreciate creative, energetic people who work to keep it vibrant.
Steem on!

It's really cool initiative, we will make a cool collaboration video with our members of @dcooperation community. I started to work on that, I have a cool idea, already shared it with our members and some members even recorded their part. Thanks a lot for such awesome contest. ☺

·

It was great to listen to you on PAL yesterday, great project! And thanks a lot for participating, I'm really looking forward to all those entries. Supposedly it's even gonna be hard to tell who's best in the end, we've got so many amazing video creators here on Steem.

Crossing my fingers for your part!! :-)

·
·

Thanks a lot. I think the most important is the participation. ☺

Great campaign and the power of people really count so here! Hope you have been well 😉

·

Hey hey!! Yeah I'm doing great - super busy, but that's fine. Hope life's treating you well, too :-)
Thanks for your great feedback and support!!! It's so much fun browing through all these lovely comments here - best reward ever, hehe

Have a nice weekend!!!

Great idea @surfermarly! Resteemed for visibility 😬

Eres la bomba (you're the best), Charles - thank you!! :-)

Happy rockin' weekend!

Really nice!

Posted using Partiko iOS

Super duper!! I'm sure a lot of awesome creators around here will join! :)

·

Fantastic, looking forward to your entry though! :-)

·

Thanks a lot for the encouragement!!! 🙃

That's brilliant, it's exactly what I've been saying to friends; Steem needs more marketing, we cannot rely on the idea that rich people will just buy it.

Funny enough, right now I'm finishing a small vLog as inspiration to others, showing how Steem is the best coin out there, capable of providing us a real life alternative for trading goods.

I plan to start a series to live only from Steem, that way inspiring people that this is a REAL alternative, especially for travellers.

·

Oh that sounds like the perfect timing, great idea! Will you be submitting an entry for the contest though?

I'm following your blog already, so I'll make sure to not miss the series then :-)

Thanks for stopping by and happy Friday!!

·
·

I'm brainstorming some ideas, maybe I'll have to colab because I'm in a bit of a survival mode here in London hahaha. @adetorrent, what do you think?

·
·
·

I heard of a couple of people planning to team up, so that's surely a great strategy. Lucky you even being able to choose @adetorrent as sparrings partner - go for it guys :-))

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Yo!! Stars are aligning, huh? :-)
Looking forward to it

Good to see you back with those initiatives surfer! 🤙

Hopefully a lot of good content creators will join this one, I've resteemed this post and looking forward to the results from all the participants.

·

Hey Remy!!! Good to see you over here and thanks a lot for the support :-)

Have you been surfing lately? I couldn't find any time, but will hopefully catch some tomorrow.

Big hugs surfer 🤙

·
·

First things first 🏄‍♂️
Well the surfgods haven't been with me the last few weeks... Only gray skies with not that much wind/waves. There was only wind while I was out for the steem meetup in Rotterdam. But lucky me I had some sunny days (again with no winds and waves) but perfect for a run at the beach. The predictions do seem hopeful with some lighter winds for this weekend but just pretend I didn't see those because otherwise I'll be disappointed again with no winds 🤣

Will cross my fingers for you this weekend for some nice waves rollin in🤞
The life of a business girl is quite busy I assume? How is life at your new place? Found a nice spot to store your boards?

And you always got my support surfer! Resteeming this kind of stuff is the least I can do to spread the word. If I might find some time I'll try to create something myself, but I think my time is spent at the #travelfeed tasks.

May the surfgods be with you tomorrow, hang loose 🤙

·
·
·

Those Gods were with me apparently 🤩

Life is busy, but actually just in the way it should be. The new place is amazing I totally love everything about it and the terrace is big enough to store a whole set of surfboards 😃

Crossing my fingers for more wind!! 🤞

·
·
·
·

A whole set of boards... You're already thinking about expanding your board-family?😍

·
·
·
·
·

Hehe, currently i have two. But there may be a point in time where I “need” a new one :-)

This is just what we need right now :D

I put something similar together last year and overall the feedback was pretty good. People still ask me when I'm going to do another - here's your chance!

Nice one Marley and good luck people!

EDIT: $500, now $1000!!

·

Thank you so much Asher!!! Good to know that there were people asking for their second chance, I hope they'll find this.

Haha, I love these type of EDITs. Couldn't get the 500 out of the URL, but that's also a fun fact we'll be able to remember and laugh about later on :-)

See you at pennsif's!!!

·
·

My pleasure :)

It's a huge prize, I'm sure there will be some great entries.

See you in a few hours time :)

·
·
·

Great show yesterday, so much input!!

Btw: I'll have to edit the numbers in this post again, lol.

#TGIF I'm ded, haha

·
·
·
·

I heard on the show you had recieved more sponsorship, amazing!

Yes it was a super-interesting show, like all of them really. 4 hours was a killer, and then a day at work to follow, ouch!

#TGIF, time for a glass of wine? :)

·
·
·
·
·

Yes, it's freaking insane! 500 SBD on top.
Someone told me to take the money and run, and pennsif said it could be enough to retire... are people really pushing me towards an exit scam here? Hahaha jk

Time for a couple of them, yes :-)
Cheers to that!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Listen to @pennsif... Just a bit of advice...

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Haha I'm working on it :-D

·
·
·
·
·
·

Time to start planning that extension on the house :D

Cheers-ing with my tea this week!

·

Thanks a lot!!! Hopefully we'll be able to encourage many to participate :-)

Hi @surfermarly!
I have been following your initiatives and fully support what you wish to achieve. I have also some other plans that hopefully can be shared soon.
Regarding this campaign, I am happy to inform you that @utopian-io will be supporting the winners with upvotes!
I will be also sharing all liquid rewards by this post after the 7 days window, to the 3 winners.
I am looking forward to more quality videos .. let's see how our talented video creators look and present their own .. 'sixty seconds of steem' :)

·

That's absolutely fantastic, thank you so much for the support! I can't tell you how happy I am that @utopian-io will be on board of the project, too!!! When I set up the initiative I really didn't expect to get such an overwhelming feedback.

I'll do an update post on the project in a couple of hours and will mention your participation there :-)

This seriously made my day!!

Very Nice! This is excellent Marly! I'm not a video person but there is no question there is a huge amount of activity around videos.

Enjoy everyone! These should be fun.

·

Thank you so much for your encouragement, @whatsup!!! Hearing it from you means a lot 😍

Im really thrilled to see what comes in here!!

Now heading for PAL... see you there 😉

What an AWESOME initiative @surfermarly! I wish I had seen this sooner, but still resteemed. I don't have any amazing video talent, but I'm sure the people who send in their videos will be great!
WHOOP! Exciting times!!!

·

Thanks a lot for supporting the project @misslasvegas!!! I don’t have time / skills either but am excitedly looking forward to see what others come up with 🤩

@olewg had a post with loads of promo videos, i hope he sees this ping

Yeah, I saw it (amazing work). I already dropped him the link to the challenge as comment under his post :-)

Just some thoughts, heavily influenced by the Grant Cardone 10x Rule. Instead of having one promotional date, maybe you should call for ten of them. Or, have five agreed upon share times in a single day for ten days straight.

Also, if you think five winning videos is enough, maybe you should share 50 good videos.

Lastly, I think a really powerful video would show users from all over the world saying the same thing in their native language. You have called for a single vision to drive this Blockchain, I think you have often stated it as We aim to be the best blockchain out there, or something like that.

It’s hard to reach consensus on such things, but using that example, the single phrase could be: I’m on Steemit, the best blockchain there is. Or any other thing.

I rounded up a lot of good ideas for Steemit slogans two years ago, but I don’t think any of them are really adequate. You have a big outreach, maybe you can round up some good one liner suggestions and get participants from around the world to send in one second clips of themselves saying the one liner of your choice.

Indirectly promoting the community here and showing how international it already is while promoting the blockchain in a number of languages would be so much bigger than having single language videos, imo.

Great initiative. Thanks for stepping up!

Afterthought: Maybe promoting the app side of the blockchain would be better: My app of choice is on the Steem Blockchain, is yours?

·

Hey @boxcarblue! First of all thanks a lot for your detailed input, it’s much appreciated.

I haven’t read Cardone’s 10x Rule so far, but maybe you can elaborate a bit more on it here :)

Here’s why I proposed one d-day instead of several: we don’t have many active users in the community right now, so if you’re very lucky you may get a few hundreds posting the video ad in their social networks. That’s the experience from past activities on the platform. If we split that into several days, it’d probably have no impact.

Yet, this is an open community and everybody is totally free to use the offered pieces of content as they wish and do what they feel is best for Steem.

Same applies for the number of videos. It’d be great to have 50, but I guess we could be happy with 5 high quality ads. Yet, I’d be happiest if the community proved me wrong here :)

Last but not least, of course people are invited to team up. So if there’s a group of steemians who wants to do a video like the one you suggested (several people repeating the same slogan), then they’re kindly invited to share it with us.

As mentioned in the post: there are no actual requirements or rules - total freedom of creativity :) That’s honestly what I personally like best about Steem: it’s a huge playground, a big think tank with amazing talents swimming around. That to me is also the true value of Steem.

Again, thanks for the great input and support (I saw you resteemed the post ;))!

See ya around 🤙

·
·

The 10x rule, simply put, has two parts. One, make 10 times the effort as your competitors. Two, make your goals and your vision 10 times as big. Don’t take average actions. Don’t settle for average dreams. Don’t compete, dominate.

How do you dominate? You do what your competitors won’t do, and you never underestimate how much time, effort, and funds it takes to be successful. How do you do that, you take your conservative predictions and multiply them by ten.

That’s the 10x rule in a nut shell.

It emphasizes quantity over quality, which I take issue with, but when you’re talking about sales, PR, and making new customers, I think that it’s correct. Steem has a lot of problems, but it’s still pretty unique. Hammer that message to the world all day everyday and maybe something will happen. The content and the messages don’t have to be perfect, but the volume has to be big enough.

What if some of these donors, rather than reward the content creator directly, put up some money to air the videos through Facebook ads (with the creators’ names attached to them)? That would probably better serve the creators and the platform.

I’ll be giving this more thought. I’ve never edited a video before, but maybe I can come up with something.

·
·
·

These are very interesting thoughts @boxcarblue and I’m glad you shared them with us.

As I mentioned before, the campaign is sort of a test flight aiming to provide us with as many learnings, takeaways and ideas for future activities as possible. Funding some ads could be a great idea for the next action! Noted ;)

·
·

Another part of 10x thinking is that unforeseen events always happen. Here are two probable scenarios that I can foresee, I can’t imagine what the ones we can’t already foresee are, but I’m sure they’ll be big.

Say this leads to a really successful marketing campaign. One, there is still the issue of account creation. As far as I know, it still isn’t fixed. Yes, we can personally help people make accounts by paying for them, but who do people contact for such a service? Are people willing to spend their own Steem to provide that service? Can we attach credits to the winning videos that promote account creation services and contacts?

Two, this campaign is successful and interested people find the trending page. What will they do then? Can we finally deal with the trending page in a month?

Maybe two other questions to ask are how do we avoid these problems, and how can we turn them to our advantage? Any thoughts?

·
·
·

There’s a great initiative called @steemonboarding you may want to check out. One of my ideas was to somehow connect the two of them: the campaign and the onbaording site - e.g. including a link at the end of the promo ad or adding it when linking the ad on Twitter etc.

I agree that it’s important to provide people with a helping hand in the beginning and direct them towards their favorite communities.

Regarding the Trending Page: Steem is not Steemit. Why would we even focus on the latter? The campaign goal is to promote Steem, not Steemit. The landing page may be rather this one here: https://steem.com/

Happy weekend 🤙

·
·
·
·

I’ll have a look at steeminboarding, thanks. I understand the difference between promoting Steem and Steemit, but with Steemit still seeming like the flagship, I sometimes view it as this iceberg that’s in the way; and with icebergs, they are always bigger than they appear.

I better understand what you’re working towards now. And I see that you’re talking in first, second, and third steps too. That’s great!

Dang ! That's dope!! I will try it out too!

·

Hehe, good to know you’re on board @edprivat!! 🤩

·

Yay! @edprivat! I've seen your entry, LOVE the energy! Well done!

Hello @surfermarly, I do not know if you know some of my videos, I have a question, I want to participate but there is a detail, I do not know if it affects my native language is Spanish. I only speak that language, I have problems with pronunciation and memorization to speak English. So I would like to know if the creators of Spanish-language videos can also participate, and even if they are going to be evaluated in the same way, or will they be excluded for not speaking English? STEEM is a great project, and has not yet reached enough people and investors, I think there are people out there waiting for our message of invitation. All you need is a good message. I think that steem can change the life of any person of low resources as well as me, only with a lot of dedication.

Hi @saracampero!
Since the overall goal is to reach as many people as possible with the campaign, a video in English may be more suitable in that context. Yet, as mentioned in the post, there are actually no rules. Of course someone doing a video in Spanish wouldn’t be “excluded” from the contest (this is the Blockchain - no censorship at all ;-)), you just may not receive so many votes for it since 70% of the Steem community is English speaking.

What about adding some English subtitles? Could that be a good solution?

Thanks a lot for your interest in the campaign, I’m really happy so many people are considering to participate!! Good luck for your entry though 🙃🤞

Mucha suerte, y comparte el proyecto con tus amigos españoles si quieres. Cuanto más seamos, mejor! :)

To me one of the greatest benefits of a decentralized network is the ability to take action without needing to ask anyone for permission.
You rather ask for consensus, and that can actually become even more challenging and exciting than simply letting to approve a plan by one higher-ranking authority.

This really got my attention @sufermarly because some people don't really know what decentralization is all about such that they get scared to express their thoughts to avoid getting flagged by the superiors (whales). I wish most people can really understand this just like @good-kharma is also applying this statement which made him developed the esteem v2 App.

That's why I kindly invite you to follow me today launching a Crowdsourced Marketing Campaign for Steem.

I can't wait to be part of this great contest since it will add more to the development of steem and I know it's gonna be fun 😊. This is also one of the best ways to promote Steemit and i hope it creates more awareness to the public by making them be part of the Steem blockchain.

Thanks for sharing this great post with love from @hardaeborla and I hope you have a great day 😊💞

·

Thanks a lot for your positive feedback @hardaeborla!! 🙃 I really hope the contest will create a certain impact within and especially outside the network 🤞

Steem on!

Right on, this sounds great! Hope to get a vid together 😎

·

Yeeew, that sounds awesome, looking forward to your entry Jay!!!

Have a nice weekend and give your second half a hug from me :-)

This is such a Fantastic Idea! I cannot wait to see all this amazinf video content creators spewing their creativity and passion for the chain!
#letsgoviral!!

·

Yay #letsgoviral - that’d be huge!!!
Thanks a lot for your lovely support @elsiekjay 🤩

Hope you’re having an amazing weekend!

This is so COOL, I just got a crack Videographer from Discord to join, he makes awesome commercial video with animations and voice overs. Look Out, Here We Come! lol :D

·

Yeah, that sounds like a great plan to me! :-))
Glad you like the idea in that way and got the ball rollin' even faster.

Happy weekend for you!

·
·

<3 Marly <3

Thanks a lot for your support, it’s much appreciated 🙏🙃

Sometimes words are not enough for such a great move like this one!

We are handling the ship, and the vast ocean is hungry of new ideas... let's feed it!


Resteemed!

·

Mil gracias, amigo!!! It was great to catch up at pennsif's yesterday - I'm still super impressed by the creativity people put into the Steem blockchain.

Hi @surfermarly, maybe we don't know each other. But what have you done was amazing. I support you, this is a great chance for growing up the steem ecosystem. Good luck!
And I always support steem, because with those platforms I can build my humanitarian program like @rumoeh.agam and @indonesia-center

·

Thanks a lot for your lovely feedback @fararizky!! I think I’ve been stumbling upon your account on Twitter, too ;)

It’d be indeed great to see this contest creating a certain impact for Steem 🤩

Ooooh, muchas gracias por tus palabras!!! Sería la bomba si pudiésemos hacer una diferencia con esto 🤩

Great initiative. Look forward to seeing the entries. We’ve got so many creative Steemians.

·

Thank you Stephen!! Lets see what we can do - would be awesome to make some noise outside Steem’s borders...I think we deserve it 😉

Awesome idea @surfermarly! Let's see what the creatives will come up with:) I'm pretty excited!

·

#metoo!!! 😃 Thanks for the support @justdentist ;)

Interesting, @NathanMars7 has been doing this for months now and the more the merrier. I am one of his #dtubefamily777 by reaching out to Twitter and Instagram. Right now the campaign Is on Twitter.

Glad to see More people getting some Marketing done. I’ve mentioned this in chat as have many for months now. The more people the better, especially those with many followers on all platforms!

·

Lovely! IMO the ideal scenario would be that literally everybody would run a marketing campaign for Steem :-) As you said: the more the merrier!

Will definitely check out the tag you mentioned, thanks for the hint Eagle :-)

Great idea!

Winning ad: $511.111 Steem

Is this 511.111 STEEM or 511.111 USD worth of STEEM (~1.5k STEEM)?

·

Thank you!!
It's 511.111 Steem - maybe I should take away the $$ signs :-)) Thanks for the hint.

@ashtv Give this a go if you've got the time. Be great to see what you might come up with :)

Much thanks to everyone backing this advertising project! How better to advertise all that STEEM is than by word mouth from those that are end users. Surf's up dudes and dudettes!

·

Hehe, i couldn’t agree more @sgt-dan!!
Thanks for your support ;)

Surf is up - indeed 🏄🏼‍♀️🤙

Ah, so Miss Marketer
, want to promote great things on STEEM? How about what many of us want to be about? Positivity and good things e.g., @spunkeemonkee ? We could us a marketeer in our community which promotes wonderful things. #promote #whatisgoodontheblockchain. @ned? Let him promote himself with his guitar. The future of Steemit or Steem as many of us prefer to be identified? What is good, and that which is wholesome, what is our future? You, dear, are the ad hoc marketeer appointed by Steemit.com, Inc..

Who am I? The most cynical Steemitizen yet STEEM loyalist. Bring your game. Many of us are watching. We shall see what we see.

#VeteransofSteem #teamgood, #steemitramble. Shut down this mess of a man that supports (and always will) these initiatives on Steem.

Responding to my comment will give attention to these initiatives I promote, not to this nut...

Signed, **Just another crazy bastard on STEEM, yet this Nut knows what is best about Steem and therefore the criticism. Gives all of them attention, every community needs a nut.

TBH I'm really getting very great ideas for that 60 seconds but I'm bit confused to implement it in that 60 seconds. I will try my best to participate in it😊😊. Well let me tell you that being a video creator I should say that this is a Kind of contest in which the creators should participate in it😊 and should give their 100%.
Although I'm not giving anykind of guarantee mam that when it will come I got the bestest idea while reading it but it will take a bit time to implement it because I want to clear my vision more as I have only 60 seconds for it :)

Ouuuh, now you got me. Those time zones are really not my strength. Please ask Google :-))

This is my entry
"60 Seconds of Steem" Video Submission! @honoru from Hong Kong
https://steemit.com/dtube/@honoru/0dbz956j

Thank you @surfermarly for launch this great project.

Yayy! Ours is up. Close to the deadline with the choppy internet here in The Philippines on islands but we made it! Soooo excited. ❤️

Whoaaaa, this a good news for everyone! Thanks for making this amazing contest! I'm really excited even I'm new vloger, not pro.

·

Thanks for your sweet comment and support 😉

Any language requirement ( as in English, Spanish , Korean etc) ?

·

I'd say English would make the most sense as the goal is to reach as many people in the world as possible. Would you agree?

·
·

Sure and we can make subtitles for the winning ad.

·
·
·

Great adding, I like the idea!

Cool!

Let"s make the campaign even wider by placing ALL the videos on Dtube on Twitter with a direct link to Steemit (https://steemit.com)

That is great. I will try do a good movie

Hi Marly!
Great idea!!!
It's a while I'm thinking about a video with Steemitri The Mannequin, but at the moment I don't have much time.
I'm thinking on doing it in springtime ;-) ... and I will try to get some STEEM first to fund the whole thing.

My goal is to go viral and conquer the news!

My idea:
Parachute Jump with Steemitri The Mannequin :-)
I already contacted a company and my friend and professional videomaker, Valerio (https://www.youtube.com/user/scaricabarile) can help me with the video editing.

I think it's a great, unique (and weird) idea ti promote STEEM, HAHAHA.

What's your opinion about this?

I accept any kind of critique ;-)

Big Plastic Hug
Steemitri The Mannequin

That's amazing! I have no experience making video ads so I'll just set here and look at all of your awesomeness. Good luck all!

Good luck to all participants. :D It'll be neat to see all the different ads submitted. :D

Wow I really appreciate must I making my 60 sec dtube vlog thanks for great attitude

It can be published in Spanish, I'll do it singing rap jaja <3

·

Cool!! Make sure to include some English subtitles (if it makes sense rapping...?).

·
·

Yes, I'll do a translation below in the post, I'll try to subtitle it because I'm not good at editing videos. xD

I will upvote if this content is really interesting

@saracampero and @podanrj take part in this, wish you best of luck 🎲.

A nice way to promote and bring steemit infront of big audience i wish that it works out to be good and i will definitely give my best to spread it too.....

·

Thank you, I’m glad you like the idea and will even help to promote it within the network. Let’s see if we can make some nooooise 😉

I love this and it seems amazing. I will do my best to make a great entry. Should it be in English or can I write subtitles?

Resteeming. Wonderful Steemit campaign.

This is good idea :) ... Lets make steemit look like fast and furious :))


·

Hehe let’s do it 😉

·
·

You are welcome :)

It can't contain third party elements, hence needs to be original.

Can you use to stock free photo/vid?

·

Sure! We just need to operate according to the law. So the license for the material has to include a permit for commercial use.

·
·

Ok, cool, I'll get a thinkin'...

I'm new to this so don't hold your breath....but great fun.

The last one I did - not too good re copyright for your project..
but you might enjoy watching it.

A Satirical play on the recent gillette ads, and the french protests..
https://steemit.com/dtube/@lucylin/lf3wuhz0

..I'll see what I can come up with..

·
·

So it's ok to use royalty free music.
(I've checked and is free to be used, and edited for any commercial use)

It's ok to be able give credit for the music, in the dtube description?

·
·
·

Sure, sometimes those credits are even required by the copyright holders.

This is a great project. Thank you.

Nice competition, Facebook won't reign as social media king forever.

·

Ha. Let’s see what we can do to realign some power :)
