You can have a more successful start, save a lot of time, and avoid costly mistakes if you just follow some of the advice in the following list of visual quick help card posts.
Maybe you are just like me and want to immediately publish your first post because you aim for this:
Of course you can but be aware your chances are to have zero results. Just take a look at the list of new posts any time of the day on Steemit.
Here is just an example:
Build Your Audience
The difference between picture 1 and picture 2 is the size of your audience. The authors who are successful on Steemit have a huge audience. Either they were already known before they joined or they have built their followers over months on Steemit.
Build your audience first by connecting to them on Steemit. You have many options to do so.
One that you should use between 20-40 times a day is your upvote power.
In this post you will find the guidance on upvoting.
Upvoting will bring you immediate steem power. And steem power means influence. And your audience is also attracted by your influence power. Upvoting will build your network on Steemit because people will start to follow you.
The next power you have is commenting.
In this visual guide I will show you how to make commenting a success.
With comments you can add value and appreciation to a post. Authors will value your attention. They can upvote your comment.
Your third option is to contact a user directly.
It will be explained in this guide.
Your First Post
Post with pictures always perform better than posts without pictures.
In this guide you learn how to insert your own image.
Additionally, you can make your title of your post stand out by using emojis or symbols.
Here is the guide on how to include them.
The best way to start is to write an Introduce Yourself Post with the tag introduceyourself.
In here you put down who you are and what value you will add to the community and your followers.
You can use your Introduce Yourself Post also as a signature and always leave a link to it when you make a comment in the future.
Some more advice
Just before you publish a post care about your network. Give them your attention first and they will return it. You see it in the Feed section in our profile who has just published a post.
My other practice is to follow anyone who interacts with me.
Hope I was helpful.
