I'm bringing some major creators to Steemit

in steem •  7 months ago

I started on Steemit about a month ago, and it's been a great month so far. I've encouraged my YouTube subscribers to follow me to Steemit, I've answered questions from Steemians on YouTube, and have met great people in this community.

I've been speaking to a few Steemians about how to get more larger creators to come to the platform, and I am personally starting a project to recruit new creators to come to Steemit.

I am currently in talks with a number of news, politics, gaming, and other creators about coming to Steemit, which I believe will be terrific for the growth of the platform. Two of these creators are close to finalizing details and I'll be announcing them soon. I hope to have an announcement to make in the next 48 hours.

I am excited about this and will be using the tag steemitcreators for what I hope will be a number of upcoming introductions of new creators to Steemit. I hope you will help me in welcoming them!

Great initiative @davidpakman! Glad to see you on Steemit.com! Hope more Youtubers join this platform.

·

I hope so as well. However, I don't really understand who so few do. Most of them could make a lot more money by posting their video over here, and just including a few "Steemit exclusive" sentences, and people would upvote that stuff. I just think there's a lot of money to be made for YouTubers over here.

·
·

You are right. I think it has to do with them not really knowing that there is a great alternative platform for their content, where they will be more rewarded. I do my part about letting my favorite youtubers know about Steemit, and so should everyone else :)

·
·
·

It does not even have to be an alternative platform; it can be an additional platform. They don't have to stop or reduce the use of their other platforms just because they are using Steemit. There is nothing wrong with crossposting in my opinion.

·
·
·
·

Right. So the integration from Steemit to other platforms and vice versa has to be flawless to help creators save time to cross-post.

·
·
·
·
·

That's a good point. I wonder if anyone has considered a type of "Sign up with Facebook/Twitter/YouTube" to make it fast and smooth to create an account here. That might get some lazy people to sign up!

·
·
·
·
·
·

I like this idea, but that would mean that the other platforms would have to be willing to cooperate and partner with Steemit Inc. in some capacity. Don't know if they are willing to do so at this point in time.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Not really; both Facebook and Twitter has API that allows any website owner to do this. However, I'm sure there are lots of concerns about implementing something like this.

I have a radio show I'd love to bring them on. I'm thinking of hosting a youtuber panel discussion and pay the participants 100 steem each.

·
·
·

I'd love to help out, let me know if there's anything I can do to help support your project 👊🏽

·
·
·
·
·
·

Help me to do mine , i am new here

·
·
·
·

WOW. with 30 followers... good ... imagine how far you will go when you are well experience. will sure follow you.

·
·

Have you considered that the way the Steem Inc operates is kind of unethical? They are offering a pegged crypto that sometimes pumps up to 10 or 20 dollars and goes back to 1$. You may argue that it is the fault of the investor to invest irresponsibly but still raises the question of why a pegged coin is hyped up so easily. And why the creators shouldn't be held responsible for it?

Also, they are specifically paying you and other public figures to get more people to promote it so that the top 0.01% can get even richer. Your one word comment will always be worth more than the guy who worked for three hours to write an excellent blogspot if he doesn't get noticed by a whale or someone with a high SP.

Did you read the whitepaper? SBD is a floor peg, meaning that witnesses have tools to increase the value to $1 if the price falls much below, but open market activity could drive the price much higher like we are seeing now. . The tools that witnesses have to decrease the value back towards a $1 are available but manipulating the price lower could create long term inflation and a long term issue with SBD value. Not sure how Steem Inc is supposed to be responsible for a pump of SBD on the open market. I see that you have taken advantage of the SBD price. . not sure where ethics come into play here.

·
·
·
·

Did you read the whitepaper?

No, nor do most average investors buying Steem in the market.

SBD is a floor peg, meaning that witnesses have tools to increase the value to $1 if the price falls much below, but open market activity could drive the price much higher like we are seeing now. .

I figured that out considering that it only pumps one way and higher than 1$ and almost always stays at 1$.

The tools that witnesses have to decrease the value back towards a $1 are available but manipulating the price lower could create long term inflation and a long term issue with SBD value.

In other words you are agreeing with my point that it can't be pegged?

Not sure how Steem Inc is supposed to be responsible for a pump of SBD on the open market.

Because they made a pegged coin that has loopholes to make it unpegged?

I see that you have taken advantage of the SBD price. . not sure where ethics come into play here.

Why wouldn't I? I am not the one responsible for managing the price. That's the job of witnesses. It is their failure.

·
·
·
·
·

Read the white paper before making comments and you may get your answers as it clearly states what type of peg SBD is and the job of the witness. Drastic decisions should not be made for short term moves in the market. If you don’t understand market mechanics then keep your comments to yourself, makes you look uneducated

·
·
·
·

well said my good Sir

·
·
·

I realy second you for that

·
·
·

any time I hear someone use the word 'unethical'
I check my wallet.

·
·

Maybe check out this contest, it is made to try and connect the members on steemit, make it more inclusive, get people exposure and to give people a chance to earn some SBD!

·
·

Thanks for creating this contest and opportunity to connect on Steemit. I've upvoted your post. Will get back with my introduction.

·

That would be great exposure for Steemit. Help with a type of welcoming committee.

·
·

wow yeah, thats a cool idea!

·
·
·

Agreed but actions speak louder!

·
·
·
·

yeah but introverted non-action speaks really quietly about things that are way more awesome than will ever be achieved!

·
·

Great idea, a welcoming committee has serious value.

·

love to contribute in any way i can!

·

Good call... I need to get tuned back into your show.

·

perfect

Loading...
·

I could be interested. Have a look at my YouTube and let me know!

·

WOW! Count me in please, and give me a role to perform for which I will gladly do.

·

Please i am interested so let do it together

·

Youtube pnel discussion?

·

Great idea! Why not?

·

Am hoping on getting to know and meet more people like you @davidpakman and @aggroed because you guys inspire me. I really appreciate what you guys are doing. Kudos guys.

·

Thats a great idear @aggroed. I wish you success

David, I've always followed you in YouTube and it's more than a pleasure to see your content from here instead. I can give you more here than Patron.

Keep up the good work! I will definitely start following @steemitcreators

hey fantastic @davidpakman - i recently made a course over on @teamvideo - 32 parts, over 3hr+ of information to help inform 'content creators' mainly focused on youtubers and the exodus into steemit! :) hope you would share or upvote that so it gets a bit more exposure. thanks for everything you are doing to strengthen the community.

And the snowball starts rolling down the slope. Wait a few months and everyone will know about Steem.

·

Hopefully to inspire some long time "lurkers" to begin their own "content creation" to ever build the community. Sweet Deal!

Check out our concept in #shop in hopes to bring users to Steemit as the platform of choice! See our post Introducing #shop to Steemit! A Way To Onboard Millions! Here

That is sensational news @davidpakman.

It was only a matter of time before some bigger names realized the potential value of the steem blockchain and what steemit can offer over the traditional social media sites. While it is still small, we are going to see an explosion in 2018. This could be one of the best moving tokens as the user base jumps into the millions.

Thank you for reaching out to your contacts and attracting more to this forum.

·

I think the time to go long steempower has hit. Start trading those SBD's for SP! Cheers

·
·

I am using a 50/50 split...well half of a half.

Of the SBDs I get in my 50/50 reward split, I turn half into SP and the other half I hold in SBD...for now.

I am going to wait and see what happens with SBD....was it just an odd pump or is there something more brewing with them?

·
·
·

I am a first timer here! Is splitting STE and STEEM the best idea to start? Or would it be better to begin STEEM only.

I met a friend online who told me about this and mining as well. I just set up two friends mining ELectroneum yesterday just to get some coins under our belts. It’s awesome to be apart of a community that shares a passion for this.

·
·
·
·

SBD (not STE) can be redeemed for STEEM. Right now the price of SBD is high meaning that a 50/50 split gets one 6 times more STEEM right now than normal.

thanks for joining and promoting the platform! The movement is snowballing!

·

Yes! This is the future of media.

Nice! That's amazing. We keep growing!

@davidpakman, your post is great, this is great news about steemit. I am very impressed with you, I follow you so I know the latest news news from you.

Thats amazing, all of us should do anything to help grow this platform as it will eventually help every single one of us. This is exactly what I love about this platform and the whole concept. Because unlike traditional systems where you pay marketing and everything else that you need to grow your website/product here all of the work is done by the community which in end will benefit greatly from that.

·

my thoughts exactly

·

I've been using steem to traffic mywebsite. I also encourage people to comment over steem rather than on my website, so i can reward them. It is a good way to keep readers engaged.

Thank you so much for doing this! You're adding lots of value to the steemit platform and we are very grateful!

·

glad to be doing it!

You started a month ago and you already have 65 rep? I've been here more than a year posting every day and I only have 64. Good for you man. Bring on the large creators.

·

doing what I can!

·
·

and doing great! But I would advise you to be very upfront with the people you bring here to not focus overly much on the rep score and the money they make, or they may end up very disapointed under the wrong circumstances.

The Steem blockchain itself in some sense functions as a sort of bridged "capital-meritocracy". It's really by working together, building communities of stake holders and perhaps testing other ways than Steemit.com to contribute and display the information here that you really get to discover the power of the technology.

Right now for example, I'm writing this from Busy.org, where videos from D.Tube get embeded and can be played directly from posts.

You can check out this subreddits side panel with a short list of Steem Apps for blogging, and if you want to you could link/post it in your subreddit. That way people get a wider perspective of what Steem is capable of.

Hope you like it and that you will continue to have a great time on Steem =)

·
·

Re-Steeming for this comment alone! Thank you @the-ego-is-you!
I love your perspective on this.

·
·

Thank you! :)

·
·
·

you are correct. Steem is capabilities are immense....

·

He's a minor celebrity outside of Steemit, and likely had a lot of support coming in.

·

good encouragement @jeezzle. that is the sprite. people like you should be taken ideals. i like and appreciate it. @davidpakman did a good job. i think he will more and more creative work.

·

indeed!

awesome!!! You are doing a wonderful job. Keep it up. By the way I am also a media person. I have worked as a journalist for CNBC , BBC and SBS. Let me know what plans you have and what sort of work you want these new media creators to create / generate????
I joined steemit two months ago. I have used it as a better substitute of facebook. Didn't think of doing any serious media/journalistic work on steemit. You have got me thinking.

You are a star bro, you started out a month ago and you are this BIG....Truly inspiring!! Looking forward to more of this from you

awesome idea @davidpakman ! I am not a "major" or "big time" creator, but I do create my own music and art, and am new to steemit (1 week in)! It's cool to see more creators potentially coming to the platform :)

·

That's awesome. Great avatar image!

·
·

thank you @dankmaster ! also created by myself. I appreciate your name too lol. Cheers from colorado ;)

·
·
·

Nice work! Thank you! Gotta get myself over to CO and have some adventures.

·
·
·
·

It's beautiful and plenty of dank too lol

There's many dope creators here on steemit, bringing more would be real awesome, am already keeping eyes on many projects still in their alpha and even talking stages. All I can say is in a few years, the steem block-chain is going to be completely insane, like an entire ecosystem on its own

I think it's great that your trying to bring larger creators to the platform. I think it's a great opportunity to invest into the platform as well as making some additional income. Ive been trying to get other creators to join as well. Hopefully they will and can see the benefits of steemit and it's community.

·

thanks very much, that's my goal!

Definitely. I will use my minnow power to give some shoutouts. The alternative media space is so important. Having it grow on a decentralized platform like steemit is even more important given what is happening on the social media platforms these days. Cheers bro.

Anything that increases this community with quality content is great work. Thank you for pursuing this mission!

·

thank you!

This is very exciting news! I'm looking forward to seeing who you are bringing over here :D

·

more news on that soon!

Great job David you seem at home here already!

I have some pull on reddit and actually considered seeing if I could get some people to come over and hang out.

Awesome David! I am thankful to you for putting in the work and bringing more people to steem... this is exactly what we need to do to grow the platform.

·

my thoughts exactly

·
·
·
·
·

Liberal propaganda. Every argument u have against the right I can also make on the left. Both sides are laughing at us as they work together to screw us all behind closed doors.

·

Yes we should bring more and more ppl on steem.... Lets make it 2018 top emerging social plateform

Excellent! Always nice to see new creators on Steemit. Also, good to see fellow Bostonians :)

·

indeed!

I’ve been dying for you to become a recruiter! Very excited to have them coming on board at this critical juncture in the Steem blockchain.

Wow I applaud the fact that you love this platform so much that you are eager to tell the masses and get others aboard. I just started on Steem about a month ago... I’m still getting used to it. I’m against some of the major social networks but I love everything this platform is about and am excited about making the best of it!

I am here creating great stuff (I am illustrator) for few months but didn't see lots of motivation to post here yet. Especially when I see tons of bots and people using different boosters to PR their posts my hands are falling down.

Depression from @dunsky

This is what everyone needs to be doing. It's great when the top profiles bring in members of other well known media personnel, but we can all do our part to spread the word about steem and steemit. It's too good to be kept a secret any longer

I'm pretty new here, but have a strong reputation in the fitness industry in the UK, what are your biggest tips to get me going? (if you don't mind me asking of course!) thanks :-)

·

Watch a basic video on STEEM, SteemBackedDollars, and STEEM Power. ;) Welcome! Good luck

·

Hi mate, welcome :)
I wrote an explainer for Facebook friends showing an interest.
Since you're already here, my best advice:
Insightful, supportive comments which add to the conversation, and upvoting posts you think will go on to be popular, until you have at least a couple of hundred followers.
If you start blogging before that, you're going to pour hours of work into a post, only for it to be enthusiastically upvoted by both the minnows who read it.
As you get familiar with the site, you'll get better at promoting it to your existing following, to your benefit and theirs (and mine).

·
·

Thanks very much for the insight, I am so new to this platform, I didn't even realise that you had replied! Thanks again, Rob

·
·
·

Notifications are hit and miss.
Just check 'replies' occasionally.
Its slow going at first, until you start making some friends; but after 16 months here I can tell you its definitely worth it.

·
·
·
·

Thanks Matt, really appreciate the insight. I am just getting going but can see the promise, thanks again.

Thats great for the hole community!

I have talked to several YouTubers and I have had some of them come over to Steemit. There is a Facebook page we post our new posts to so it is easier for them to check out our blogs on Steemit. We are using Facebook as a tool and it works, get many over here that would have not normally came to Steemit.

YES!! I am with you all the way.

Read about my skills in blockchain technology.

Great news. Excited to see your future posts.

Good luck with your needed work!:)

great work mate:)

Welcome to Steem! share the love.

Thanks for working to grow the community

Wow !!!!!
You started just a month ago ? And look how far you've gone .✅ This is amazing .

And I love your idea , especially bringing Gaming to the blockchain. It makes lots of sense to me .welcome David ✅

·

Does it? Gaming is already on Steemit if you check the tags you'll see that "gaming" has nearly 3000 posts and has earned 327,195.373 SBD in payouts. Maybe if the search function and tag index (or whatever it's called) were a little more obvious people would be aware of the diverse range of topics already being covered on the platform. If you doubt me check here

That's the spirit ! Thx @davidpakman ! we (GaminGHD) will promote Steemit starting with the next year shows ! STEEM ON !

your career is amazing @davidpakman

good job.

It makes me very happy looking at so rapid steemit growth.
I am waiting for SteemIt go viral.

·
·
·

And apparently Vice dot com is launching a coin on the STEEM blockchain

Resteemed and upvoted

Thank you so much for promoting steemit, and thereby helping to increase the value of this community. Good to have you here 😊

Don't post anything on Youtube telling your followers or anyone to try Dtube!

I made a post on a video for a Youtuber to migrate to Dtube and since they can't delete a comment YOUTUBE deleted the entire video to stop people from reading my comment!

Youtube sucks now....big time! Every 4-5 minutes in a video you see advertisements!

I just download the videos to by-pass the advertisement. I don't need Youtube to waste my time with Ads!

·

How do you expect the creators to get paid? They get paid by ad revenue and it's the creators who place the ads breaks in their content btw. If you download monetised videos because you don't want to watch a few ads then you're taking money away from the creators. If it's a copyright infringing video that's one thing but don't you think people deserve to be paid for their work?

Wow great to hear you bring Steemit to the attention of your friends as well! Hope they'll join soon! Also consider pointing them and yourself to the Steemify notification app which the @blockbrothers (the group I am part of) made. Also consider voting for us as a witness here and make sure you scroll all the way down, enter "blockbrothers" in the text field and enter 'VOTE'. We Would very much appreciate it.

Waoooooooo this are the kinds of mind we need here in steemit.

Great job congratulation im just 4 days in hope to reach your level

·

Why do you have a reputation of 6 after only 4 days?

Thats mighty kind of you sir. I wish I have your privileges and connections to be able to command response.

We should all do this and try to bring as many people over as we can to participate in this, i mean earning steem is great and so much better than all the other social networks. be well glad your here @davidpakman

Good to see new users taking to the site and using their talents to bring more creators and drive value. More power to you man, awesome job.

I just started out on Steemit a few days ago myself. BTW, I love your YouTube channel, David. There are lots of amazing things that can be done with the likes of Steemit and Ethereum and Bitcoin. We can deal with money in politics, implement direct democracy, do collaborative writing, distributed computing, take on centralized control of finance and media, and much more. Watch out banks, political parties, and corporate media.

what a great initiative! good job!

The more the merrier. I think they will find their comment sections will be a lot more civil here.

Solo más de un mes y has logrado tanto, te felicito David porque usaste tu trabajo en you tube y lo integraste a este nuevo mundo de steemit. Esperemos ver como evoluciona tus proyectos, desde aquí se te apoya.

Nice, Keep it up!!

Just over a month and you have achieved so much, I congratulate you David because you used your work on you tube and integrated it into this new world of steemit. We hope to see how your projects evolve, from here you are supported.

Genius, care to share any tips for someone trying to build their following?

This is awesome! thank you for the help in making this community bigger and better.
I really appreciate it and i know that everyone else agrees.
I will def help you in welcoming them.
again, thank you!

This is a brilliant idea

meh. Are those major creators real or fake like your Youtube followers?

That's the beginning of an even great future for Steemit! Thanks for your effort David!

I have asked few of my theater friends to join this amazing network, unlike Broadway, here in India we theater artist struggle a lot financially. I hope this will change the way we live our artistic life.

yes, I am very happy with your idea, so for those who want to register in automatic steemin he will learn new things here, and can pour out the hidden talent, and it seems like I have to learn a lot from you, please guidance

Very cool! Steemit definitely needs some some more YouTubers. Sargon of Akkad would be great. So would Dave Rubin.

If any of those creators are slightly mad artists, they should take a look at @slothicorn for a community of like minded creative people building a community here on Steem from the ground up! All are welcome, and there is currently a contest going on with a crypto survival kit as the grand prize for whoever draws the most creative slothicorn! We even got an entry from a five year old! It's a lot of fun!!

Good job @davidpakman !

It's good to see that more people are joining steemit. We just might see a spike soon.

And on a sidenote, you just might be the catalyst to make us all rich, bringing in the key people for mass awareness.. :)

I’ve been thinking of doing the same. Are you pitching these creators to create original content for Steemit? Or , to use this as an additional platform for simoultaneous / dual-platform content?

Sounds amazing! Steemit has a lot of potential, even I'm talking with developers and bloggers.

This is big news. Looking forward to meet them.

This is brilliant. In a few months steem it would be well know even more popular than Facebook.

I'm new here only my second day but everything about this community, and platform looks outstanding. Hi Fives to you for helping promote!

Bring it on!

Hey david, not sure if you caught my comment earlier but one of the people who seemed interested in this was Ron Placone of the Jimmy Dore show. They think subcribers are being unsubscribed and that youtube is demonitizing their videos. I brought you joining steemit up to Ron on his Live stream in the morning and he said that you were a really smart financial guy. I hope you contact him and point him in the right direction because he definitely seem interested but as you know the whole blockchain explanation thing can be a bit of a hassle but I think if he helped bring the Jimmy Dore Show over and its audience it could be huge.

You should try to get Kyle Kulinski of Secular Talk to come to Steemit.

Great step..must say..:)@davidpakman

Awesome! I love it. Starting to move over here as well! I haven't really been excited about 'social media' since I was 13 :D I believe this changes the game! Looking forward to reading and seeing more. Peace

I'm spreading this community to my office mates for the benefit of us all, Please upvote and follow me and I'll follow you back. Thanks guys! More power to Steemit! :)))

this is a good new . great post

Beautifull blog really like it.
steemit wattoo.jpg
Follow me @wattoo

Oh sweet Jesus!!!
@davidpakman if we all can unite and embark on this together I think it can put steemit on a level of popularity that will be very close to that of other social media like Facebook, twitter, IG, and so on. And you know that will be very good for this our community. And I think the programmers here should embark on constant improvement of the system like making it a lot easier to make friends on steemit, creating easier links to invite people from your friends list on other social media platforms because the more followers you have here the easier it is for your stems to earn for you. So, let's start by following each other and let many of us who have read this Steen be able to get updates about this so that we can swing into action when necessary. Thanks and God bless you for your brilliant effort and idea.

·

Steemit will never be as popular as any of the sites you mentioned because on Steemit actual creativity not plagiarism is required so the majority of the human population will be cut out from making posts here (because humans aren't all equally original and creative, mostly just innovative at best) but because there is a financial aspect to posting here, the more users there are the worse it will become. Flooded with copyright infringing posts and endless resteems of more popular people's work. Which is how all of the websites you mentioned actually work.

That's amazing. Great Job!

Wait till next year for the magic to unfold!

Wow, this is great. I am a newbie, hopefully it could really help us fellow steemians@davidpakman

Good work, good luck

That's amazing! Looking forward to it.

Hello nice meet yot. i am korea minier. thanks

They are highly welcome to Steemit.

your post is good, I like it.

Its a good idea to bring your following from the social networks and posting some links on platforms like reddit, thanks for letting us know anyway

This is big news. Looking forward to meet them.
