Hiya folks!!! Brand spankin new here...

in introduceyourself •  3 months ago

Hey there folks!

My name is Chris and I reside in the lovely beach community of Bayville, New Jersey. I own a comic book and toy store called Conquest Comics that’s pretty kick ass if I don’t say so myself. (Go peep it out)

Family and friends are extremely important to me and I value them greatly. I have dogs and cats and they are my world even though there is husky and malamute hair on my clothes daily.

My main goal in life is to make a living someday in film and television....behind the scenes. I’ve produced and assisted directing in 2 feature films so far and look forward to the next project.

Currently I’m dabbling in the crypto market and trying to absorb as much as possible. I feel like I’ve come a long way since I first started but still learn daily. Very hopeful for the future if investing in strong projects and teams.

Anyway, thx for giving this a look. Any support would be much appreciated as I’m new to this. I look forward to participating and providing some (hopefully) insightful articles and posts on the comic industry, conventions, dogs, films, crypto, and any other random nonsense thatbpops into my dumb head.

Chris

Thank you very much! I’m hoping to be able to contribute something positive to the community!!

Hello, Chris, and Welcome to Steemit.

I'm not sure if there are any feeds on Steemit for comic book and toy stores, but with your energy and enthusiasm, you will likely be able to carve out a niche for them.

Particularly with comics, since Steemit is essentially a blogging / publishing / writing platform. Not that you could post the comics here, but you could post reviews, summaries, overviews, or anything else related to them.


Below are a few basic points of advice re posting on Steemit.

  1. Longer posts are more lucrative than short posts. If you make a post of 20–30 paragraphs, it's more likely to earn rewards.
  2. Include some photos, images or graphs, to complement the text.
  3. Make sure the text and photos are formatted properly, so that your post looks attractive and appealing.
  4. Be yourself.
  5. Be interesting and informative.
  6. Create quality content. Steemit is intended to be a platform of quality content. (You will see many insignificant posts with meager content and no quality. Most of those of posts [called “shitposts” by Steemit whale Stellabelle] will earn few rewards and soon pass into oblivion.)
  7. Get online and start curating. Read various posts, comment on those posts you find interesting, and upvote those posts. That’s the best way to attract followers.

Hope this helps for now. Good luck, and Full Steem Ahead!

All useful information! I appreciate the insight. Still figuring this who thing out...ya know? As far as the comic and collectibles angle goes you are right. There does not seem to be a world of action there as of the moment so hopefully I can help and get a bit more participation there. You rule!!!

One more point. Submitting photos in the various photo contests is a great way to earn a bit of Steem and to attract followers. Here are links to 3 contests.

@photocontests, organized by @juliank
Daily color challenges, organized by @colorchallenge
#tepchallenge, organized by @theexplorer

For entries into those photo contests, short posts are OK. But it's a good idea to add a bit of text explaining the photo, to give the post some meat and to make it more interesting.

Awesome. Yeah we do exclusive variant cover comics in shop sometimes. We have a new one launching next week for the newest issue of Amazing Spider-Man. 3 covers by the amazing Joe Linsner. It’s a homage cover to the classic X-Men 100. Can’t wait for this to arrive next week. We have to shop a ton out. Ugh. Lol.

Probably a dumb question but how is it done folks introduction posts gets literally nothing...while others gets hundreds. I’ve seen interesting posts get 0 respect and a dud of a post get a ton of help. That’s probably the most baffling thing to me about this platform so far.
