How to Become a Sndbox Member

in incubator •  last year

It’s been an exciting first month! We have now had a full month in “beta” with the goal of onboarding 15 creative and super-talented individuals to the Steemit platform while refining our incubator model. Many Steemians have been asking, “How can I become a Sndbox Member?” We’ve gotten to the point where expanding to the existing Steemit community is finally possible. Today’s post will answer this critical question and explain the process in which you can join the incubation program.

Growth through Nominations


All new @sndbox members will join through a nomination process. Current members can nominate up to 2 new members per month. This nomination strategy is designed to achieve the following goals :

  • Healthy Community Growth. - We want new members to join by building relationships first. Sndbox is both a program and a community guild. Our goal is to create an empowering network that motivates mentorship, conversation and collaboration.

  • Strong Vetted Content. - This organic referral process will be a filter to insure strong quality content and community stewardship. Nominations can also radically reduce the presence of plagiarism on Steemit. Our “beta” Sndbox members represent nearly a dozen countries all over the world and as many languages. Having trusted eyes and ears will support healthy growth in new communities.

Our Membership


YOU RECEIVERETURN
Coaching : Daily one on one support. Steemit has a learning curve that we aim to accelerate our members through.
Editing : Help with formatting and translations.
Feedback : We will support our bloggers with ideas and advice on structuring STEEM-powered projects.
Promotion : Visibility is important. Our incubator has weekly member spotlights, highlighting newbies and helping our members raise awareness for the issues and projects important to them.
@sndbox upvote : We reward strong and creative content. Consistent support will help retain talented Steemit contributors and help them engage their audience.60 SBD monthly maximum*

*If you earn less than 60 SBD, that's okay! We will never charge you more than you've earned. Members can also lower their membership fee by nominating new Steemians. Each nomination will be rewarded with 20 SBD (up to 40 SBD or two nominations per month.) This incentivizes the growth of the incubator network and the growth of Steemit as a whole!

Where will the Membership Fees go?


50% of SBD received through memberships will be converted to STEEM power to help grow the account. The other 50% of these fees will go towards support costs of maintaining the incubator service including programming and projects throughout the year. This will include offline programs in New York City through our official Meetup Channel, Steemit workshops and community projects like STEEM Park.

Should You be a Sndbox Member?


Sndbox is a Steemit incubator that empowers impactful and creative projects worldwide. Our goal is to create a supportive environment where an artist, architect, musician, curator, educator, entrepreneur, non-profit, or community organizer can explore, innovate and play all while being rewarded for sharing their craft.

To be 100% clear, we ask Sndbox members to nominate individuals or organizations that align and improve upon our creative-impact mission.

A “Sndbox Member” can be -

  • A prospective Steemit user with a creative or community purpose in mind
  • An existing Steemit user with a proven record of great content and impactful ideas
  • A community leader or organizer who wants to establish a Sndcastle Accelerator or other communal hubs in their local area
  • A project-based account created collaboratively by multiple new and/or existing Steemit members

If you’re interested in becoming a @sndbox member, we recommend engaging with existing members in their posts as well as reaching out to Sndcastle Projects in your region. If they believe that your work and ambition are befitting of @sndbox’s program, they can nominate you into the network.

Do not leave comments on members’ posts similar to this - “Please look at my account, @_____”. Explain what you do and why it would be beneficial to both you and Sndbox if you joined the community.

I think you need to approach this in a different manner

This is not a bad idea for those who has the knowledge to do so

·

Thank you for the support!

Absolutely! :+)
Peace.

Ever since i first spotted this project i wanted to be a member. The reason is an easy one. I want to make my living by writing and support all the decentralized projects that I find useful - Steemit is therefore THE perfect mix that will hardly be replaced in foreseeable future. Thus said @sndbox provides much needed help in everything that is actually needed for any author on Steemit. I also share the vision of spreading Steemit far and have managed to get couple of users on-board, while spreading the knowledge about crypto to hundreds. I now fully concentrate on providing (what i deem as) valuable content. The means of entering will though be an obstacle for me I guess. I’m not that type of guy who would be active on others blogs just to get some attention in order to get here. I only say something when i think I have something to add. The only one i know from the crew is @voronoi with whom i had couple of interesting dialogs about his vision of Blockchain cities and Steempark if I’m not mistaken (maybe i am it was some time ago). Anyway i wish you best of luck with the project guys. I’m just going to continue doing my thing and maybe join you once:) peace

i am new here bro plz come see my blog and upvote me if you like :-)

Very interesting!!

Your colors are cute.

·

Haha thanks!

wow,,
a little hard for me

Hi, I am not sure what label I am, but the closest would be an artist, I have many plans going of platform and learning the tools need to produce the music I will be making. I will being bringing something not heard before here as I transfer all my music from 440 hrtz to 528 hrtz which other than guided meditation or long trance music with no words will you find music done as such. I found this out from a friend on facebook on ways to make some extra money. And that is cool, but I see much larger potential then just making money, I see a place where can fully bring my music to the light for all to experience, but I am new to this and so I am not sure of the best way to get started on here as for now all I can present is my lyrics in poetry form.
Thank you for you post it has given me some insight to how all this works1

Really good work you are doing. And also liked your nomination process.one should get the benefit only if he deserves it. Great

I would like to join I haveva strong solid steemit networks Im a mentor of newbies and have seen them started growing here at steemit and doing well...To be a part of sndbox can help my continue on going 100 to thousands newbies to mentor.

https://steemit.com/steemit/@antonette/100-to-2-million-upcoming-newbie-invites-steemit-sign-ups-will-start-tomorrow

Does it have to be a project only? @steem-lagos is devoted to enlightening people in the city on the Blockchain-Cryptocurrencies and how it will change their lives...i @oluwoleolaide , @lucashunter and @peman are in charge of the channel we have some videos on dtube and many will come up.

This is an interesting project. I do not have a community yet, I'm just a steemian that joined in August. Still learning the ropes, and so far so good. Such projects as this, make me want to do more for steemit as it is very encouraging. Keep up the good work and thanks a lot.

That's very interesting! Any comics creators already a member? I feel like writing a graphic novel is not as exciting as every project mentioned above. I mean it's exciting once it's done and released but otherwise it's a long on going project building up little by little...

Good day sir i would like to be part of @sndbox ,is there any possible for me to be a member? Please check @bien

Thanks sir!

Very interesting and intriguing concept although I don't thoroughly understand the whole idea yet, I will follow and hope to learn more in the future!

I'd like to join @sndbox

nice to see all the support within the community ! if there is ways to join or help out let me know!
