How can we promote Steemit better?

Hello Steemit


It’s been a little while since I’ve posted on here. If we haven’t met I’m Benbrick - a songwriter and artist from London. I started writing on Steemit.com last summer. This was my introduction post. Here's me with a manly drink.

Where have I been?


I’ve been busy making new music! At the end of last year I also worked on my first movie as additional composer - Willkommen Bei Den Hartmanns - if you live in Germany perhaps you saw it?

New changes

There are a lot of changes that are really exciting. It's nice to finally see some development on the menus, the ability to drag and drop images.

Promoting Steemit

As you may or may not know a few months ago I got Ricky Gervais to post a video that included the Steem logo at the end of it - see my posts about this 1,2,3. I raised money through 3 Steem posts and donated all the Steem to the charity (over $1000 - thank you!).

How can we promote Steemit?

I've been thinking about the potential for a DAO style system within Steemit where recurring votes can be automatically given to projects that will directly benefit Steem. When someone signs up with their project and wants to raise $X different users could pledge to vote a certain number of times - thereafter until that person hits their target the backers automatically up vote the project page once a week (once a day?). This would be a merge between Patreon and Kickstarter.

There are also many amazing writers, designers and artists on Steem. Are there any plans to implement a Fiverr style dashboard too? So that talent can be directly hired without going outside of Steem?

Let's test it

I have three pieces of music that I'd like to release the piano scores to. I was thinking I could put the Steemit logo on the back of each of the pieces of music so anyone who buys the sheet music will see the logo - are there any graphic designers that want to help me put together the graphics?

Waiting for lyrics? Do you have someone making them for you or are you waiting for inspiration? I could write the lyrics for you if you wanted?

I don't like reading. Can you repost an audio file where you sing the text from this post?

Thx.

I guess that explains why I woke up inside Leonardo DiCaprio's body.

I just promoted Steemit to my 21k heavy tech-savy facebook group with their interest :-)

So I wrote some stuff they are interested (DIY 3d printer) and shared it to them in my group (admin).... that should brand steemit pretty nice I think on longer time. If you want to follow the progress as I would be happy to invite you as my follower :-)

I am also interested how it will run!

I also own Steemsongs.com
I'd be interested on working on something with Steemit INC. Perhaps we can chat?

It's not something I'd expect to see on Steemit, but anyone could develop a front end for it. And there's still PeerHub.
