With the current situation in the bear market where not many content creators know about Steem and its advantages and since curation is increasing generally with the new HF, OCD was looking to adapt at what gives Steem the most value at this time. Curators have for a long time mentioned that there are not a lot of authors to curate, with certain restrictions on how often we curate authors and the focus on newcomers it has not been easy to find them.
We set up a new program to invite content creators to Steem through us, here is basically what we can offer them.
A Steem account, our OCD accounts have over 35k claimed Steem accounts waiting to be put to good use and we will try bring in new people, whether they are content creators or their followers or just regular users looking for an account - with a little verification from their existing social media accounts we will offer them their own Steem account.
A kickstart into their Steem journey through curation - here we will guide them through discord and in other ways on the basics of Steem, encourage them to write an introduction post and then also curate and take care of them into their first posts while they get a hang of it. Crossposting for the invited content creators will be allowed (and curated) early on but over time we will incentivize OC on Steem with bigger rewards.
OCDB whitelist, content creators we invite will get whitelisted and can use our bot if they want in the same way as other established Steemians. With the #newsteem movement and our bot being used less and less to buy bids from we will of course also manually curate these content creators and others we feel deserve the rewards/visibility.
Fanbase interaction rewarding - Content creators that post about their Steem account on other social medias and invite their fans over to Steem will receive curation on comments on the content creators content. This will of course also be manually curated to mitigate autovoting abuse as we all know it leads to that sooner or later when votes are certain.
500 SP (steemit slider) Delegations to the content creaotors until they reach 500 SP by themselves. We started the delegation program a few months ago and have graduated many accounts by now but we want to focus this on content creators and allow them to curate comments and other content curators without bankrupting their voting power.
We want to build a healthy community of content creators who all started the same way through us on Steem and are like-minded and interactive with each other and see the benefits of Steem aside of just the rewards. There are many more additions to the ones mentioned above but we'll start slow and keep fine-tuning it over time.
We had a trial with the onboarding program for a while, OCD curators gave it a shot in the way it is built right now and the results were pretty decent. Out of 18 total attempts where contact was made and a reply occurred, 6 of them joined Steem shortly after and everyone has posted at least 2 posts so far while only 2 have not posted anything in 4 days since their last posts. Pretty good stats if you ask me, so now let's scale it up a notch! :)
What you need to apply as an onboarder
- Fluent english
- Decent knowledge of Steem or how things work around here
- An active social media account (facebook/twitter/pinterest/reddit)
- Add other reasons why you'd be good as an onboarder if you lack any of the other points above.
How things work in detail will be shared with you once you are invited.
What's in it for you
You get to be part of one of the biggest curation and onboarding projects on Steem. You'll make a change in people's lives and see it happen in real time. You help bring in more content creators to Steemit and at the same time have more content to curate.
There are rewards! Similar to the way @ocd runs their compilation posts, where curated authors are highlighted with descriptions and curated, we will do the same for invited content creators. There will be compilation posts with descriptions of them and examples of their content where the people that managed to get them in will share the post rewards. 20% goes to the author writing the compilation posts, 30% to the successful onboarders that brought in the highlighted content creators while the SP will be shared in Stakes among every attempt to get content creators in.
Use this post to apply for a position and we will contact you or you can join the OCD Discord server in the meantime and say hi.
