Building a Steem Empire: Thoughts on Expansion with @Andrarchy

rawpixel-com-191102.jpg

Waddup Steemit!

I’m Nick. I’m the CEO of an experiential marketing agency in New York City.
And I gotta say, i'm crushin’ hard on the power of Steemit.

You see, I’ve been watching Steem’s value increase in less than a month. And why wouldn’t it? It’s connected to a platform that will actually pay you - with REAL MONEY - for contributing valuable content.

A platform that rewards you with more than just a dopamine rush of “like” validation...

This is some revolutionary shit. It still has me like, “what kinda sorcery is this?

All jokes aside, it opens up a new realm of possibility for writers, creatives, and thought leaders everywhere.

But it also made me realize something even crazier:

We actually have the power to influence the value of Steem.

Both directly and indirectly.
What a time to be alive!

But with the OGs like Bitcoin and contenders like Ethereum dominating the crypto market, you have to wonder: Will Steem stand a chance?
And if it does, can we be the driving force?

The Challenge Steem Faces

It’s pretty clear to me: once Steem’s popularity rises, so does its worth.
When more people want Steem - the need for it increases, which in turn increases its value (demand).

This is really good news for us because let’s be real - It’s not like the USD will experience a growth spurt anytime soon, right?

But Steem is still new - intimidating even.
Plus the paradigm shift seems unrealistically HUGE.

And here’s where the real challenge lies…

As innovative as Steemit is, the actual currency is now competing in a diluted market of other cryptos.

So if Steem doesn’t pick up momentum, it stays in the shadows…
And without a demand for it, its value decreases - which will suck tremendously for our community.

Steem needs new avenues and industries to expand into.
So just like any other brand dealing in a crowded marketplace, I propose the launch of a creative marketing campaign.
I want to spread some serious Steem awareness!

Meeting With @andrarchy

My agency uses the power of experience to create hype and drive loyalty.

I’ve helped create unique experiences for brands (big and small) to connect with their audience in more meaningful ways than just using digital marketing alone.

Which got me thinking:

What if I could help drastically increase the value of Steem by putting it in the hands of a wider audience?

A campaign that would attract new audiences to Steem in massive numbers!

I know, my plan is ambitious. But it’s a step in the right direction for Steem’s growth.

Why?

Because the more people use Steem, the more valuable it becomes (which is exactly what it takes to compete with high value cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin).

Steem would thrive faster than ever - all from the power of experience.

So I linked up with Andrew @andrarchy last week.
He works in marketing and community management at Steemit Inc.
I shared my ideas and we both agree, a creative partnership could definitely propel this movement.

Gameplan:

My main goal is to take the Steem ecosystem to the next level.

How?

For starters, I want to get the most talented creatives onboard.
We do this by leveraging my existing network of creative communities and influencers - which total over 2 million potential users.
If we can recruit just 5 percent of those users onto a Steem powered platform, I'm satisfied.

BUT, if we’re going to be an empire, we need to expand our real estate…

We couldn’t have discovered Steem at a better time.
Right now, my agency is building a custom social network that introduces a new way to experience content.
Through innovative tech solutions, like:

  • Augmented Reality
  • Interactive Experiences
  • Immersive Media

And the best part is we’re adding the Steem protocol. That means our platform will function just like Steemit and Steepshot. But it will be more gamified and highly interactive.

You see, different crowds need different ways to experience the benefits of Steem.
Only then do they become fans.

Imagine:

I bring some brands onto my platform...
We sponsor a photo contest for photographers…
The best shots posted win a new camera, drone, maybe a couple of lenses. Win or lose, every participant walks away with Steem in their wallet...

Or what about a channel for emerging entrepreneurs? Rather than coming out of pocket for blog traffic and SEO rankings, they can just post and share articles, promote their online courses and bootstrap their business - with Steem.

My mission - driven by a powerful platform - will create fun incentives that get new audiences addicted to using Steem.

Fortunately, i'm just one piece to the puzzle.
Andrew tells me there are even more partners developing new social networks powered by Steem.
Expansion is how we win.

Wrap Up

Either we can make Steem thrive or let Steem die. And that’s exactly what will happen if we don’t expand creatively...

If we can team up and think outside the box, we can position ourselves for INSANE growth!

I’m so stoked to be a part of this community, and I'd love to do my part to help Steem boom.

What about you?

Wouldn’t it be dope if we could boost Steem’s value?

Welcome to Steemit from the Steemycam team!

·

haha thank you so much!
Welcome :)

·

Yeah, this community is gonna explode soon for the better

Awesome Read! The more I look at the projections of STEEM the more I see two option playing out.

First


The power of steem will pull users from Facebook because they are rewarded monetarily for the contribution to building the platform.

Second


Will Facebook come up with a way to reward authors monetarily as the steem platform has done?

I can see that as a huge nut to crack. If Facebook finds a way to reward Authors and Curators as STEEMIT has done. They will most likely have an ICO that goes through the BTC or ETH block chain.

My Thoughts


Facebook will have a point system that may come into play as a reward system but those points will not really have value off the platform. It hard to know how Facebook and Instagram will react to this new rewards model. Whatever they end up doing will be a clone of what steemit is doing. Lets work to make steemit so successful that there would be no comparison on any other platform.

·

I posted a reply but it seems like i must have accidently pressed some keys by accident.
These projections are spot in !
Really value your thoughts on the matter.

If we execute correctly there will be no competition

I like the idea of thinking of ways to grow the Steem Community. Our goal as individual users should be trying to find new active users to sign up.

·

agree completely !

Welcome to the fabulous world of Steemit @nickytothenines - upvoted and following you!

·

Great post!! I think the applications are almost endless...

There's a blockchain based website called Bank To The Future that offers direct, interactive funding for start ups and I think Steemit has the potential to act in the same way. To a certain extent it already has, @cryptodrive successfully pulled off a crowd funding project last year and I'm sure many others have since. The platform as a whole is rich in creativity and likemindedness which goes along way to actually making a difference. I don't know what the future will hold, but I'm excited to be a part of it. Upvoted and followed, looking forward to seeing what you get up to next!

·

Funny you say that,
I was thinking about incorporating a small funding initiative for entrepreneurs on my platform.
The only thing thats tricky is the fluctuation value, but im figuring it out :)

BTW bank to the future is epic.

·
·

That's interesting, will look out for your posts to see what you get up to next! And yet, it's pretty epic :)

·
·
·

well, thank you :)
I appreciate the support!

·
·

Hey @nickytothenines ! @daisyd !
I loved your motive and the "GamePLan" I like to add my thought like crowdfunding.

What if.... Just like ICO, why can't any one run a project's ICO on Steem?

Steem protocol to provides incentive to the idea.

So, for instance you can let every one know about your project on Steemit platform. If community realize the worth and the future, they upvote and provide you "FUNDS" which can be used for the project (crowdfunding). Same like ICO instead of buying tokens.

The benefits would be:

  1. No risk of loosing value of tokens (if things do not go as per plan),
  2. Identifying the best project by community voting system,
  3. For developers :- identifying the updates intended by community and incorporating in the code.
  4. If community wants, they go by themselves getting your project's tokens (if there are any. Because as I said above, your project run on Steem. They need only more Steem and value of steem also rises)

These are just my views triggered reading your awesome post.

·
·
·

Haha you're on the right track !
I was already planning on using these funds to bootstrap the cause...

But instead of blatantly creating a post asking you all for funds,
Ill just continue to write valuable articles that benefit you guys and pull my earnings from there.
:)

·
·
·
·

I mean the same.. writing multiple posts. Coz no one can easily trust and blindly upvote your project. All the best.

·
·
·
·
·

Oh, sorry. Misunderstood you then.
But yes, I agree!
Thanks again the for the support

·
·
·
·
·
·

Following you. Finally found someone on steemit who like minded.

Let's share and populate more ideas to earn and grow together.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

definitely! thanks :)

·

Hi @daisyd thank you for the info on the Bank of the Future. Will be checking it out

·
·

No problem @pwpretorius - it's a great site

·

Very cool! How does it get any better than that?

·
·

It is very cool indeed :)

I am creating in real life tournaments to promote steemit to people. Players who don't know much about cryptocurrency will be exposed to users, veterans and beginners as they play for a prize pool that has been fundraised by our community. We would be the first coin that would try and make the intangible tangible and real to the everyday consumer.

·

Sounds like an awesome idea.
I think that gamified experiences built in with Steem is a winning combo

·
·

Agreed. Speaking of gamification. I feel there should be a game centered tutorial for new accounts. Each task they compete they earn tokens. We'd have higher retention.

·
·
·

That's a solid idea!

·
·
·
·

Thank you! I'm finishing up the post about it now.

·
·
·
·
·

I'll check it out.
Glad you followed through!

1,000$ for the first post 😎Not bad at all! I think what you are talking about is amazing. My personal view is that people aren't going to be interested in steemit unless they are first interested in cryptocurrencies. There is alot of work to be done in expanding awareness, not only for Steemit, but for the amazing opportunities that exist generally within cryptocurrency. Anyways, I look forward to what's next!

·

thanks for the feedback!
But actually, I dont quite think its necessary for the audience to be interested in crypto first.
Think about television or the internet,
we may not understand exactly HOW it works as far as technicality, but we DO enjoy the benefits.

Thats how i want to approach Steem - get people to enjoy the benefit first, which will then, by default, get them interested in crypto :)

·
·

True that! I guess I am just speaking for myself when I say that. I guess my logic is that you get paid in cryptocurrency on steemit for using it as a platform, but if you don't care about crypto or believe in it, maybe you will be less likely to get involved?

·
·
·

Not necessarily !
As a marketer, my job is to get people interested in things so that they want to get involved.
The trick is - find what an audience needs and fix it with what you offer.
Anytime you can deliver on a need, you typically win the loyalty of that person.

·
·
·
·

guys great discourse. If I may I am here for several reasons, first I am social and love to learn and interact, sites like facebook with all the privacy and tracking issues I wont sign up on. Then there is the censorship thing. Think youtube, which is how I learned about steemit. So far what I see coupled with my interest in crypto's, this will be golden once I get it figured out.

Welcome to Steemit Nick. You have enough love for the community already. I am an Internet Marketer, I like your growth hacking strategies. Are you on discord app or steemit.chat? I do like to have a chat with you. Thanks you and welcome once again.

·

Thanks Lucas, and no I am not currently on those apps.
Ill have to get set up but I will stay in touch.
Appreciate your kind words :)

·
·

Please do setup an account on any of the chat app. It is necessary to build relationships around here. I followed you 😎

well thank you! maybe you want to check this out: (https://steemit.com/introduceyourself/@nickytothenines/focus-on-impact-not-income-how-my-article-exploded-this-week)
might be of interest. just posted it a second ago :)

·
·

OK sure, I would check it out...

Welcome to steemit ..😊

·

thanks 😊

Hallo from Berlin to N.Y.C. :)

that is what steemit is all about networking and getting in front of the correct people, getting the best of you out in your post and generating the hype to get traffic to them, then having people upvote follow and comment on your content, and making steemit blow up and take over FB hahahaha

·

exactly haha! facebook domination evil laugh
But you're exactly right!

yes, bring more users

Welcome aboard! Definitely be keeping an eye on the new network you're working on. I think it's awesome that you've decided to pivot into incorporating Steem as your backend. I see so many sites across the web that could do the same and benefit themselves and Steem mutually!
There's a Steemit Poker League in it's infancy playing at bluffave.com and the mixture of Steem and games is already intoxicating. That site has player blogs, forums, etc. and apparently there's already outreach to get them to just run it all on the blockchain!
I see a great future for brands joining Steem and putting their marketing budget to work on buying a stake that will allow them to reward their fans and commenters with votes and contests and it seems like you're headed that direction. Good luck to you and thanks in advance for anything you do for Steem!

·

Hey Bryan, thanks man!
I'll have to check out that Steem poker, sounds awesome!
And i agree, Steem works so well in anything game related.
I'll be sure to update you on all of our progress and thanks again for reaching out!

·

Very insightful post. Can you point me to resources about how you can incorporate Steem on other sites?

I'm new to this and to be honest I'm actually quite amazed what I've learnt recently. Definitely got my attention,still learning but can't wait to get started and to understand this. So much more to learn any info or tips much appreciated

·

Hey man,

I actually wrote an article that I think you'll find helpful. Will post tomorrow morning :)

·
·

Can't wat to read that

Is it important to do an introducemyself?

Keep going!

·

Upvoted and re-steemed. I am a property lawyer. Feel free to bounce any ideas off of me to the extent steem advances into my realm. We don't know where this is going, so just keep this in the back of your head!

·

Thanks man, appreciate the resteem!
Let's definitely stay in touch. I want to hear more about what you do as it relates to Steem.

·
·

Will do!

First... well done, well said resteemed, followed. I have mentioned before it'd be nice to be able to embed web player based games, which when I say games I am actually talking about products made using a game engine but that doesn't mean they are games. Game engines simply push the tech the best so view a game engine more as a TOOL that is great at making games, but a lot of other things can be made as well. The top concern with something like this is the potential security risk of just allowing anyone to post a web player app that people can play through their post. It is a lot more dangerous than watching a video, looking and an image, or listening to some music.

It is however the avenue we will need to go if you want to add the interactive experience you are talking with things like VR and Augmented reality. Those things for the most part are all driven by game engines. I can tell you now if we could embed such things I'd be making such content NOW. Yet we do need to find a solution for the security risks first.

I have some ideas on that front and I may write a quick post on it.

·

Hey man,
finally found the post hahah!

I agree completely- fortunately I am working with a professional development team.
They have a unique platform that acts like a social network but has a Unity plug in.
So we can add higher gaming features.

I also talked with the marketing guys here at Steem to go over security risks.

But you're very smart to identify these risks!

·
·

Yeah the other post I linked to in my other post I actually provided all the Unity related embedding information, as well as a demo that people could experiment with if they chose to do so. It sounds like we are thinking along similar lines. I'm going to be making games and other things whether I can link them to steem or not, though I'd be very happy to be able to help out steem and my game by being able to tie it in.

·
·
·

I am actually all about this idea.

My developers have the Unity feature, but are not game developers by nature.
The cool thing is my platform will have channels, so if you're down to integrate...
I don't see why I can create a channel for you.

Let's stay in touch?

·
·
·
·

Sure, I am very active here on steemit. Feel free to reach out to me any time. I also love steem blockchain and its enormous potential to change the world, and I'd like to do my part.

Feel free to reach out to me anytime. My email is the same as my handle here dwinblood at gmail.com.

·
·

fortunately I am working with a professional development team.

Also, technically I am a professional. I've worked with Bioware and been paid for it.

Professional mostly means these days we get paid for it. It doesn't dictate what we know. I assume by what you wrote though that you are likely working with a very good team, and this is a good thing. :)

I actually was offered jobs from Bioware at one point, but due to custody issues with my youngest children at the time I chose to pass it up, and just do it on my own at whatever pace I wanted to and with the freedom to make whatever took my fancy. :) I'm actually glad I made that decision.

I will say steemit has been a gigantic distraction from actually getting my development done. I likely would have been done with my current project long ago if not for steemit, but like with my kids I am very happy with how things have turned out.

·
·
·

Haha dude, thats awesome.
And you sound like a professional.

I guess I meant my team has a big list of clients and partners that allow them the resources that some indie studios may not have access to.

It was very hard finding a team that understood social networking, AR/VR and Unity shakes head

·
·
·
·

I guess I meant my team has a big list of clients and partners that allow them the resources that some indie studios may not have access to.

Yeah, which I've never had access to except during those brief times I worked with Bioware.

That can make a huge difference. Also sometimes professional can mean people who can focus on THIS and don't have other jobs outside of the project that are calling them away. In that respect I am not professional at this time as I am currently a Network Engineer by trade. I do get to work from home though so I get some free time. I simply am 24/7 available and work on projects for my job at no fixed time periods... one day its in the morning, another it is late at night.

·
·
·
·

It was very hard finding a team that understood social networking, AR/VR and Unity shakes head

Not surprising it is very new. It is like telling people to pile upon a bunch of wooden ships and saying... "let's sail into the unknown and see what we can find."

Wouldn’t it be dope if we could boost Steem’s value?

Yes. Yes it would.

·

thanks for the feedback Brian. I think so too haha

Upvoted and resteemed. Your thoughts and words are powerful! Wish you all the very best!

·

WOO! haha thanks for the kind words and the resteem!

thank you for good posting.

·

Steemit is a community currency, the more you interface and interact with it the richer the community, both figuratively and literally (due to the tied currency attached to it).

The danger is if it becomes too niche and entangled within it's own bubble.
The opportunity is it turning into something more akin to Medium rather than Facebook. It would be a perfect way to enrich and reward authors and curators.

·

very true. I think the way Steemit exists right now, it appeals to writers.
Its not yet optimized for highly visual content and immersive media.
Once a platform like that exists, we can bring in other types of creators will a canvas that fits their needs.
Thats my goal, to create that solution

Good post.
upvoted and resteeem right the way!

·

Nice, thanks alot !

Man I love all this inspiration on here. Being a new user it really helps to keep me motivated. So glad to see posts like this. Great value in what you do and thanks for sharing!

·

Dude, welcome to the platform. And thanks for your kind words!
Value is the best thing you can offer.
Once you nail that, you can achieve almost anything

Welcome !

I think you have the right attitude and good ideas, sure we are all here to help in any way we can.

·

thank you! i appreciate that

Welcome to Steemit, where your will be handsomely rewarded if you put in efforts. Following you in order to read more from you and support you. Lets stay in touch.

·

awesome, thanks so much Charles!
Will def follow back and we will surely keep in touch

·
·

Great, looking forward to seeing more from you and sending in my support. We will surely keep in touch, win win for all

Great post. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Have you developed the Facebook group yet?

·

Not yet, in the very early stages.
I want to finish the prototype before I create a group.

Sounds like you have some excellent ideas @nickytothenines. Welcome to Steemit.
... Oh, and Steem On!

Welcome to Steemit, Nick ! It's nice to meet someone who has a true long term vision for the platform :) Looking forward to reading more about your plans!

·

Thank you!
I thought long and hard about making a disruptive social platform,
and then after discovering Steemit, the collab seemed like a natural fit.
I'll keep you in the loop and thanks again for the feedback!

Great post man and welcome to the community! I think we can definitely influence the value of Steem if we collectively stick together and spread the positive message. I have no doubt we can make it even bigger than Facebook

·

Exactly! Love the spirit :)
And thanks for the support

I have joined steemit a few days ago! And i would like for anyone here to see my blog , commetn and help me out! upvote would be a bonus! kindly help anyone?

I really enjoyed this read. :) I'm hoping to see some similar success as I have had on past new platforms like Pinterest (130,000+ fans) and google+ (175,000+ fans). I'm excited to see what the future holds for steem.

·

Thanks!
Congrats on that success! I hope you monetized those other platforms too :)

·
·

How do you monetize on those sites? They don't allow ads or anything like that. I use them to redirect to my website and get a lot of brand deals. :)

·
·
·

Sorry, didn't mean platform.
I hope you monetized that "audience".

Meaning migrated them to other networks that allow for promotional posts.

Do you have a blog?

·
·
·
·

I have a website.
VegetarianBaker.com

The audience is always changing and I'm working on getting them to go across all networks.

I haven't shared them to steem yet, but that's because I wanted to test it out first.

·
·
·
·
·

I am taking the same approach.
I think its awesome that youre testing something before throwing it out there.
I can see why your audience is expansive, you are trustworthy.

I'll be sure to check out your site!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Thanks. The website needs a design upgrade, but it's been updated weekly for 3 years now. I started on youtube but then expanding to all over outlets of social media performance.

Welcome to Steem @nickytothenines I have sent you a tip

But with the OGs like Bitcoin and contenders like Ethereum dominating the crypto market, you have to wonder: Will Steem stand a chance?
And if it does, can we be the driving force?

Hmmm the Steem goal is not to compete with these currencies. It is to stop Facebook and its debility ...
Seriously, Steem is just an alternative to the pub to earn a living on the net. :-)

·

True, the goal is not necessarily to compete...
However, if we want to keep this community and platform thriving,
we need to make sure that Steem not only retains its value, but increases!

So, we will have to be competitive in a marketing sense!

Alot of cryptocurrencies that dont have a strategy and unique positioning are fizzling out-
If that happens on here, nobody earns a living anymore :/

·
·

I agree with you on this point of view. As you said in your article the only value of steemit: its community. 😉 Upvoted ! GG
I leave you an article to write 👊

·
·
·

Thank you! and yes, community is whats going to propel Steem forward.
Appreciate the feedback :)

·
·
·
·

I invite you to go for a ride on my channel, this evening a post on EOS. You can use google translate because my post is in French.

Love your ideas! I am new to Steemit as well and am still in awe of it.

Lets keep in touch and set up a meeting sometime. I work with one of the top illusion and mentalism artists in the US. Your post makes me think the three of us have a lot we could contribute to each other's projects.

A little on us: We are both artists living in NY. My associate spoke at a few recent conferences on VR and related topics. We are involved with interactive theatre in NY including Third Rail Projects (Then She Fell, Ghostlight), Angry Fish Theatre, Sextantworks, and Letter of Marque Theater.

Glad to have you on Steemit!

Lets talk soon,
Jeffrey Michael Lee

·

Ahh Jeffrey, that sounds awesome!
Yes, please, let's definitely connect, I thrive off of collaboration.

That sounds so interesting :)

Awesome to hear there is initiative to drive mainsteem adoption! I think you guys are spot on with the game plan if we look at it from a high-level. However, a very important aspect I see for the big run is that the UX is clear and easy, from the beginning!
Shout out to @swolesome for the gamification tutorial idea, I think that could be good. Upvoted and followeed - awesome to see bright minds on here and excited to see this rocket take off! Cheers

·

Ah, thank you!
And yes UX / UI is my biggest focus. It will make a world of difference.

@swolesome had a great idea too.

Thanks for your support!

This is dope dude!
I'm in. Will be following you from now on and make sure, I'll get back to you at the right moment.

·

sounds good!
Thanks for your support :)

·
·

Thumb up! @nickytothenines, could you drop me a link to your experimental advertising agency?

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Thanks! What I'm seeking is an awesome F.O.M.O. pitch line since the very fist second on the landing page. Well done! :)

·
·
·
·
·

Thank you :)
I put a ton of time into the aesthetic of that site haha

I wanted it to feel more like an inviting publication, and not just the same old agency website.

Hey mate! I really enjoy your writing style. My friends and I are just joining steemit and are trying to get connected. I created a post on getting the younger generation on board with steemit. I'd love your feedback. I whipped out a follow also! :)

·

Awesome, thanks so much!
I'll follow back and definitely check out your article.

Welcome to the platform :)

Welcome to steemit :)

Welcome to Steem @nickutothenines

WOW! success for you is success for all. Best wishes and welcome.

·

appreciate the support man ! :)

Welcome to steemit ! Upvoted and following you! :)

·

I think that expansion will bring together experts from all around to work into making the platform better. Would you say the platform promotes or hinders such collaboration? Thanks for sharing!

Hey,

So the thing is, not to look at Steemit as the only platform.
Steemit is like a reddit or a facebook, and for that - this platform is enough.

However, Im saying that other partners need to come in to create the Steem versions of twitter, instagram, youtube, etc.
Expand our digital real estate to put Steem in the hands of bigger audience.

Based on my conversations with the guys who work at Steemit, they are welcoming collaboration and partner platforms :)

Your plans gave me goosebumps. Because its so awesome!!! Glad your using your connections to make Steemit grow. Welcome to Steemit! :)

·

ahh thank you so much!
really appreciate the kind words :)

-:) medase (Twi for thank you)

Welcome to Steemit! Looking forward to seeing what you and the other forward thinkers bring and working with you to help Steem grow... the possibilities are limitless. You've got some brilliant ideas @nickytothenines. This is going to be a very exciting time ahead!! Upvoted and following you.

This sounds like a great idea and really realistic if this is done successfully I can see great potential in Steemit, maybe even overtake Reddit? What do you guys think?

·

Hey man,

thanks for your feedback!
Actually, Steemit is doing just fine! They are already a strong competitor against reddit.

My thing is, lets create ANOTHER platform that competes with say: instagram or youtube or something entirely new all together.

The more social networks with Steem built in, the stronger we are :)

·
·

That's a really good point! And I would imagine it is possible.

We want Steem to thrive. I want to be a part of it. I have had some thoughts and need to take it to a bigger scale.

·

all ideas and contributions are welcome :)

Welcome to Steemit! Personally I think steemit will thrive! Looking forward to see your future posts.

·

thanks ! :)

Yes Brother!
I feel you and am on a similar wave length. I have written, talked and acted on the great potential of Steemit. It really is possible to actually be revolutionary!
I love your enthusiasm and that you see how WE THE STEEMIANS can make this WHATEVER we want it to be for the BENEFIT of us all. Not only that but we begin to cut out old paradigm control mechanisms like the USD, IRS etc etc.
I am following u now to see what u do. Be in touch, the potential is infinite~*~

·

thanks, bro !
Really appreciate the kind words.
We are in early stages of development but I will def keep you posted on progress :)

·
·

Awesome, I am following u so will probably see some of ur posts in my feed but yes be in touch. We can do great things!

It would be nice if steem started to spend some money on convincing popular vloggers on YouTube to make the transition to here. I know a lot of them are getting fed up with the way YouTube monetizes their content and a lot of them have started using other 3rd party companies like Patreon to get paid. If they were on here, viewers of their content could decide themselves how much they want to pay the content creator and in turn would cut middle man like pateron out of the picture.

·

We'll I imagine they've considered.
But, Steemit is still in Beta.

Thats why im in talks about partnering with them on a platform thats built for more visual and media experiences.

Frankly, this platform is more suited for written content. Its not aesthetically optimized for media rich experiences yet.

·
·

Well seeing there are so many unhappy content creators on YouTube, eventually YouTube will have to change their action plan or stand loosing all these people to a direct competitor. Thanks for the insight !

I like where your heads at. The more people that we can get to think about the longevity of this platform the more success everyone will have.

Let's make Steemit a universal competitor!

·

I agree !
Thanks for the support

Excellent post!

I definitely agree that expansion would be great for steem's value!
Having a role in it's growth would be great as well

Followed, upvoted and resteemed

thank you!

Welcome to Steemit. Now following you.

I'm in! I am the creator and solo developer currently launching a brand new service to steemit users, called SteamChallenge.com - where I have a directory just launched this morning to some first look potential listers. It's a directory of all the games, contests, challenges, giveaways and events that are so hard to track and attend to on steemit today. It solves a problem my community is clamoring for in the steemit ecosystem, and I will do my level best to fulfill the need and mind the gap. I consider myself a creative, both in my blogging and my software development. Count me supportive of this marketing initiative and thanks for taking it on for all of us trying to make steem sticky! Followed, upped, and resteemed! Congratulations!

·

Awesome! Love the thoughts

Welcome to Steemit from the Steemycam team! You have presented some fascinating ideas. Any idea when your platform will be released?

·

still in early development! But executing very quickly

I like the idea of people bootstrapping their ideas here. Also I think if we can use steemit for solution based concerns in emerging markets.

·

@nickytothenines
Man, forward thinking like this is reason I first fell in love with digital marketing.

So many ideas flooding through my brain after reading through this, and I have to say it's a brilliant idea. I'm also in the marketing space. It's very ironic actually, one of my resellers owns an Experiential Marketing Agency in a coworking space in NYC. However, they focus mainly on mobile showrooms/mobile billboards.

Experiential Marketing coupled with the right targeted FB/YT ads, and possibly a few well-planned influencers would absolutely kill it for Steemit.

Do let me know if there's anyway I can be of service. I currently run a digital agency based in Central Florida and my team would love to collaborate.

·

Hey Charles,

Thats awesome! And im always down to collaborate.
Id like to see your website so I have a better idea of what you guys do.

Hi there. I'm also fairly new to Steemit, but working on getting my head around it. I did post a piece I thought may attract attention, but clearly my measly $0.03 is an indication I need to do something differently. I'm intrigued by your idea and plan and will be following. As a marketer myself, I will definitely support the campaign.

·

Well thank you so much for your support.
And welcome to the platform.

You'll get the hang of it. Just figure out a way to add insane value.
We in marketing have so much power to make or break a brand.
Use your powers for good and the community will love you :)
