Hello steemians in Nigeria and around the World, I do believe it has been a lovely ride in this season 2 of the steemit engagement challenge. Now we are in the last week of the season and I want to thank in a special way the moderators and admin of this community for great contest topics as always. This week’s topic was nothing less than the best giving us an opportunity to share our ideas to the growth of steemit.

HOW WELL IS STEEMIT KNOWN IN YOUR COUNTRY? DO YOU THINK IT POPULAR ENOUGH OR THERE NEED TO BE MORE PUBLICITY?

Steemit as we all know is an online blockchain platform that reward users for creating contents. It was created right back in 2016 and has ever since had tremendous growth. My country Cameroon launched its community in late 2020, meaning it’s just over 1 year.

I am from Cameroon and Cameroon has a total population of over 25 million persons all over the country. Now, @steem-cameroon community has just over 2,123 subscribers. If we are to do a little mathematical calculation here, you will see that just about 0.0079% of Cameroonian are into steemit. And this 0.0079% can all be found in the North west region of the country.

This makes steemit to be massively unaware in my country. With this statistic above, I strongly think and do recommend that my country Cameroon does need increase publicity. I will discuss in the next paragraphs some of the ways in which I believe steemit can be publicize in my country.

WHAT ARE THE WAYS YOU THINK THE PROMOTION OF STEEMIT CAN BE MORE EFFECTIVE IN YOUR COUNTRY? THIS CAN INCLUDE SPECIAL PROJECTS YOU HAVE IN MIND.

I am a very big fan of steemit platform from day one, and I do think the following steps will help promote steemit in my community.

  • INCREASE MEDIA SENSITIZATION.
    One of the things I discovered really early about steemit in my country was that there was really low and poor sensitization about steemit. This accounted for why the country has low number of subscribers. I already started a media tour last year with the then CR and then he withdrew from steemit. I do think increase media sensitization will be helpful. Not only the Facebook, Twitter or Instagram kind of campaign. I mean radio and television, paying visits to radio and Tv stations to talk about steemit. I am presently in thoughts with @chiabertrand on this. I believe with increase media presence of steemit, things will be better.

  • LAUNCH OF A STEEMIT LITERACY CENTER.
    One of the difficulties about steemit is that we go about recruiting persons into steemit and lack the capacity to effectively train them. This is also a project that I with some other esteem steemians in my country want to embark on. Providing a center to train and coach new steemians. I believe with the right coaching and training we will multiply. We need Pro steemians not just amateurs.

  • ROAD AND CAMPUS CAMPAIGN.
    I do also believe that as part of the strategy to promote steemit in my country, we can also increase our sensitization campaign. Do road side campaigns and on campus campaigns, this will be targeting mostly students of higher institutions. I believe there is a ready market for steemit on the campus. This sensitization campaign will take place all over the national territory and not just in Bamenda which is the main stronghood of steemit.

  • SEMINARS AND WORKSHOP TO PROMOTE STEEMIT.


    IMG_20210515_125241_163.jpg

    I have attended seminars and workshops; I can tell you they are very effectives. I became the person I am through seminars. I know that organizing seminars will be a great way for promotion. Workshops and seminars will be organized all over the national territories. These seminars should mainly be for recruiting of persons into steemit and the main target will be out of Bamenda. I do believe doing this in our different countries will be an addition to steemit.

  • INTRODUCING NETWORK MARKETING STRATEGIES.
    When I joined steemit, my very first reward which was 5 steem was gotten through a contest rewarding steemians who had recruited steemians. In that 3 first month I recruited over 20 steemians. I believe introducing a method of rewarding steemians for recruiting steemians will be an added advantage. I do have a plan already on this project and it will be launched soonest.

  • CHARITY.
    Charity is just one of the ways to get into the hearts of people. When people know you are into steemit and helping people, it makes them draw closer to you. I believe projects like the World Smile projects can be extended to countries like mine. This will increase the number of persons interested in steemit.

  • INCREASE THE NUMBER OF CRS AND MOD.
    The effectiveness of a community lies in the hands of the leaders. The more the leaders, the more effective it is to run the community. I believe by increasing the number of CRs and MOD of every community, it will make it more effective to interact and monitor the progress of the country.

DO YO THINK STEEMIT WOULD BE ADOPTED MORE IN YOUR COUNTRY IF THE POINTS YOU LISTED ABOVE ARE IMPLEMENTED

YES. I do honestly think that these the points listed above will go a long way to increase the adoption of steemit in my country. All the strategies above are ones I and my team plan on executing in the days ahead. I promise you, in one or two months you will see a different Cameroon.

HOW HAVE YOU CONTRIBUTED YOUR QUOA TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF STEEMIT IN YOUR COMMUNITY?

  • RECRUITING NEWBIES.

In this domain I can go on and on. I have been very active in recruiting people to the platform. I have recruited over 30 steemians, although just over 10 are active. I discovered that it was mostly due to the lack of coaching and training and so I decided on the steemit literacy center to help with this. Below is a link of my most recent recruitThe Diary Game: We Got a new addition to the Steemit platform and Cameroon community. 15/06/2022

  • SENSITIZATION.

    IMG_20210519_150156_454.jpg

    I have also been very active in sensitizing the Cameroon population especially Bamenda about steemit. I have done a campus tour in the University of Bamenda and I have visited a radio station to talk about steemit. The pictures and link are below.

  • JOIN CLUB5050 AND NOW CLUB75.
    I immediately joined the club5050 initiative when it was launched sometime last year. The club status is a way of giving and reinvesting back to the community. I support every program that will help to promote and push the agenda of steemit ahead.

LAUNCH OF A STEEMIT LITERACY CENTER.

Training is also a good idea to promote steem, because people lack this understanding about the platform but when they are being thought on all the aspect of steemit I think more people will sign up and be very active. You have actually written so well my dear friend and I wish you all the best.

Without a doubt the strategies you have listed to help promote Steemit is going to be effective.

I can see that you also have promotional activities yourself which is a positive thing because through you @ebuahsang1 a lot of people would know about Steemit.

I really like the steps you have taken to promote the steemit platform in front of people in different countries. And these I think are very effective. One of the things I like most about your initiative is that it would be great if a seminar could be organized for those who work here. The move was really good.

Your ideas of promoting Steemit will be advantageous to the platform, I see a lot of new users onboarding to the platform through your promotional work, you have promoted well in the past and I believe you can do more to reach a wide range of people in Cameroon

Greetings and blessings

Yes it is true. Road and campus campaign will go a long way to share more information about the steemit platform. Especially on the road, you get tp see and talk to many people about the platform and that is a good way to promote the steemit platform. Great job.

I will also want Camerooon to be a great center for steemit. with all your hardwork and consistency im sure you can make it happen. Your suggestions for promotion is very good and practical and if adopted y any country will be a success.

Well done bro, you are really doing a great Job promoting steemit in your country.
Good luck in the contest.

Yes I am. Thank you for reading through

Steemit's activity in Cameroon needs strong advertising work.

The creation of a literacy center, and holding seminars and workshops would be very useful to educate new users and train them in the most important issues of the platform.

You have done a great job recruiting many users for Steemit.

It is good to hear that a certain percentage of your country population is in steemit. I think after doing promotions you will get the percentage increased.

Yeah. Thank you for reading

You have said it all if Steemit introduce a network marketing method by rewarding people it will really make people to put in their best

I believe that Nigeria is one of the nations where adoption of Steemit is considerably higher than it is in Pakistan, India, and many other nations. because Nigeria has a very high level of crypto usage. I'm very appreciative of Nigerians for their promotional efforts on behalf of Steemit. I also appreciate the promotional efforts you have made like guiding new users and SENSITIZATION. Good friend, thank you for sharing your this post with us.

Greetings 🇵🇰

you will see that just about 0.0079% of Cameroonians are into steemi

Yes, looking at this percentage it is too low. The number is not even up to 1% and I think it’s too bad. You are right to say people are not away of steemit judging by your numbers.

One of the difficulties about steemit is that we go about recruiting persons into steemit and lack the capacity to effectively train them

This is what I always try to tell recruiters. We all have had problems when trying out something for the first time and without guidance we would be lost. So signing up someone and not guiding the person until he is aware of things on the platform will be useless cause he will leave when he finds it difficult.

ROAD AND CAMPUS CAMPAIGN

Campus campaign in tertiary institutions help a lot. There are a lot is students who after lectures literally have nothing doing and will be happy to put that effort into something they will enjoy and also earn something.

RECRUITING NEWBIES.

Yes this is all the steemit dream is about. As you have also said that you realised most people are inactive since they are not educated after sign up and I must say I admire your effort in setting up a steemit literacy Center. Am sure if you tell your friends about this Center they will also sign people and direct them yo your Center for education.

I can see how well you've contributed to steemit through your activities of recruiting newbies and training them as well.
I believe when other strategies of promoting steemit listed above are executed, you will do more to support your country.
Success to you!

If we are to do a little mathematical calculation here, you will see that just about 0.0079% of Cameroonian are into steemit. And this 0.0079% can all be found in the North west region of the country.

What you eventually said is all true looking at the population steemian in cameroon ,toucan see that they are mostly from the north west of cameroon and not all are active in steemit .
That is the more reason we need a country representative who is more active in these platform and who can convince and convie seminar which we can at boost the rate of steemit in our country to look like other countries
For example looks at nigeria and the rate at which they are steeming

Yes, I have really seen that you are good promoter, so doing exactly all these suggestions will help so much but I gradually all these points will be implemented.
