I'm on the other end of minnowbooster - I am leasing delegated sp and I'm so grateful to all who make it possible.
I used to vote at .01 for July and August and got nowhere here. Now I vote at about 12 cents and I get respect and action from my efforts. I outrank big fish on post payouts all the time now because they vote with weak power and at low percent on the slider.
I vote at 100% and make each vote count. This has been a big difference. It costs me about 30 STEEM per month and my sp doubled from 60 to 120 in sept and I know it will do better in October. My new followers and all other measures of my performance have increased dramatically. [excpet my own post payouts, but I'm working on it!]
I wish I would have leased delegated sp as soon as I had the sbd to do it and I recommend this to all new minnows who care about upvoting, curation, rewards and sp.
