Get 100x More Views On Steemit Immediately!
Numerous users complain about their posts never being seen on Steemit. Do you ever feel like you wrote the best blog ever and wished more people could see it? I always felt like that in the beginning.
The Truth About Steemit Views
I hate to break it to you, but the truth about getting views on Steemit is there are only two ways. I remember my first post it made a few cents, and only a few people saw it. I would see many Introduce yourself posts getting hundreds of dollars and hundreds of upvotes, I thought it would happen to me too! But it didn't, the way Steemit works is bizarre and takes time to understand its algorithm.
Some things can boost your views and upvotes, and that is related to the post itself, posting infographics, a photo of yourself, cartoons, and banners will increase your returning viewers. The issue at hand today is how to get first-time viewers.
A Catchy Title
If your post title is boring and not exciting you will never get clicks on your post, let alone upvotes. Treat Steemit like advertising; the ad needs to be attractive to others so they can click on it, its the same with your titles.
The title should relate to your topic that you wrote about and excite the reader to click on it. If it just says "my opinion on Bitcoin," no one will care to click. Rather you should give it an exciting title like "Bitcoin China FUD - My thoughts."
The Steemit community usually neglects the thumbnail of the post; you need to make custom thumbnails and put effort into them. Taking a picture off of Google and using it is not going to work, you need royalty free images and edit those to make them more exciting.
Once you have a nice thumbnail and catchy title, this will influence others to click the post. Once those two things are down pat, you need to make sure the content within the post is interesting and captivating for the readers.
I understand most of us have all these down to a second nature and just never have our content seen. Here are a few tips and tricks for you guys to implement to get more views.
How To Get More Views
What I'm about to say is going to be difficult for some of you to accept but it is the only way. I spent a week posting every day to only have 2-3 viewers and couple upvotes until I discovered "resteem services." I know, I know! I hate that these "services" even exist but when push comes to shove you have no choice but to fight back.
Certain users do resteems for your posts for a fee of 1-2SBD, and they resteem your blog to thousands of fans they have. The fans they have are real active users but the method they got these fans is not in the best manner. They usually use bots for their accounts to follow mass amounts of users and get followed back from them and accumulate the huge following. I have seen a lot of benefit from these "services" because there was a time where I would have no views until I used them.
There is also a Steemit account called @Curie where you can submit a post of yours or another person, and if it meets their criteria they will upvote the post, and it will make a few hundred dollars. If you were the one who submitted the post at worthy to up-vote, they would reward you with 15 STEEM. Curie's hard to get but if you do your reputation will skyrocket to almost 60!
Using Whales and Boosters
The final method I see authors using is paying for whale up-votes and boosts. The whales are easy to use, you can send 0.5SBD to Randowhale, and he will upvote the post when users see a post with a lot of money they tend to click on it rather than one with $0.
If you want to show the post to have a lot of money and get it to trending, then you can use @Booster and bid a certain amount of SBD to get an up-vote from them according to the split between all the bidders. Once a post hits the trending page, it will get more viral by people seeing your post rising in the ranks.
The Future of Posting
Right now we are lucky Steemit is not huge and there are still very few users compared to all mainstream social media. The upper hand we all have now is the capability to grow now and enjoy it shortly. If you can spend 6-8 months working hard and posting daily on Steemit, you will not regret it in the future when the platform gets adopted by the masses.
I want all of you to comment down below what methods you like to use to get your post more viral. I would love to hear from all of you and would like to implement them as well!
