As some of you might know, I was given the honor of being invited on the mspwaves radio show on discord last weekend, hosted by @aggroed. And I wasn’t the only one!
Last weekend’s large panel consisted of a wide variety of Steemians with different backgrounds. Some established, some new, some gardeners, 2 fitness gurus, a big Dtube influencer, a Canadian, a German, a few Americans, you name it! A super diversified panel with one goal in common: Gathering a sizable following on Steemit and helping the platform grow in the process.
Better Late Than Never
As mentioned in last weeks post, it feels a little lame to jump back on board with the price of Steem and SBD soaring, but I feel like as long as I can not only reap the rewards but can also contribute to growing the platform, there is nothing to be ashamed of!
I have been talking about converting YouTubers ever since I joined this platform 7 months ago and I haven’t been able to follow through just yet. I got a little demotivated with the highly fluctuating earnings and kinda lost interest for a little while. Obviously that was a mistake because Steemit is also an investment: had I buckled down and put in the work then I would have had a much more established profile on the platform today.
Back to last week's panel on mspwaves and the inspiration that it gave me. The reason that I was invited on to the show was of course my YouTube background. Being the owner of the World5list channel, I have always wondered: “How will I be able to “convert” some of my 800.000 + subscribers to Steemit and/or Dtube?” I already had a few ideas lined up before going on the show and I wouldn’t say that these other folks on the panel gave me more ideas directly, but being a part of the panel and hearing about everybody’s background and plans definitely inspired me to come up with more ideas. Starting with………… Steemit SUNDAY!
Starting next Sunday and every Sunday after that, I will be posting a World5list video on Dtube EXCLUSIVELY. The video will not be posted on YouTube for at least a month (and possibly never). In fact the only thing posted on YouTube that same day will be a trailer of the video along with an on camera appearance of yours truly in which I will be promoting Steemit and Dtube to my subscribers and everyone else who ends up watching the trailer.\
Why Am I Doing this ?
One of the most exciting things about this project for me personally is that I will be able to touch topics again with my YouTube channel that I am personally interested in, without having to worry about being financially on the hook for the whole production because YouTube doesn’t monetise a lot of these topics that I think our audience will enjoy learning about. The first video that is in the works right now for instance will be about evil high ranking females during the nazi reign.
Hopefully this idea, along with other future plans, will allow me to give back to Steemit, while growing the World5list brand on different platforms.
Teaser: My partner in crime will be doing the same thing with his YouTube channel, which is closing in on 1 million subscribers. Except he will be doing Steemit Saturday. He will be making the announcement with a post of his own later today. Those of you tuned in on discord last week will probably know who I am talking about. Those of you who don’t, maybe someone will reveal the name of the channel in the comments below… ;)
Recognize my mystery friend who will be doing Steemit Saturday...?
