Crowdsourcing the Future w/Marketing Plan Announcement
Hello Steemians! Today we’re proud to announce the new crowdsourced marketing initiative for Steem.
We believe that the only way Steem growth can scale is for it to come from the community itself. So we’re going to create community-driven growth processes from the very start. That’s right everyone, we’re crowdsourcing growth for Steem.
The Benefits of Successful Crowdsourced Growth
- Growth of Steem will become independent of Steemit Inc, distributing more power to Steem holders, and letting marketing as a whole scale with the community.
- Putting control over the evolution of culture on Steem and Steemit.com in the hands of Steemians.
- We’ll have developed a turn-key solution for marketing ANY PROJECT on the Steem blockchain, not just Steemit!
What We're Doing
- We’re designing the protocols for effectively organizing the Steem community and optimizing the limited bandwidth of the Steemit Team.
- Clarifying and publishing the methodologies specific to Steemit, to be used when Steemit.com is ready.
- Accelerating the development of partner projects on the Steem blockchain.
We’re hoping to begin presenting these protocols to the community as soon as possible so we can start coordinating the early experiments.
Finally, for those of you who read to the end, the Steem Growth Plan for 2017 will be released early next week. From our perspective, Steemit is the navigator of Steem growth, but as you’ll see it will be a truly communal effort.
