Free Stuff For Waving Your FlagsteemCreated with Sketch.

Howdy, All.

Five days ago, I made a post about the awesome talk I had with @andrarchy regarding how best to support the marketing efforts of Steem, Steemit, and the community as a whole.

So just a quick update on what I plan to do.

We're going to war, people. But before we do, I think it's important to establish a strong foundation from which to stage our battles. And that starts with providing the community with the tools and resources to grow things organically.

But that's not all.

For the past 6 months, morale has been stupid. Just stupid. And everyone and their dog has an opinion about the reason. It's the market. It's Steemit. It's the bots. It's the secret clubs. It's the 1%.

Ho-Lee Crap. The promised land is just over the next hill, and we're all standing around arguing about who gets to hold the flag.

So you know what? You get a flag. And you get a flag. And you? Yeah, you get a flag. EVERYONE GETS A FLAG! YAY! The first act of the pre-launch of the preliminary entity known as Steem-Studio is to get everyone a flag.

Hearts and minds. That's where it starts. THAT'S the foundation. THAT'S how we build something that the world has never seen.

For many of us, Steem stopped being "social media" a long time ago. It's no longer something you "plug into", It's a friggin' lifestyle. It's part of what defines you. That's pretty nuts, right? But here's the thing. That's our secret sauce.

Any marketing professional can tell you that the ultimate goal is to convert non-users into users into product evangelists. Then those evangelists become influencers. In today's day and age, you get enough influencers, and you're ready to topple empires.

Are you with me so far?

So, STAGE ONE: Get everyone a Flag.

We'll do this by outfitting our troops with as many Steem branded assets as possible. Everyone on this platform could and should be a walking, talking billboard. Both physically and digitally. The rest of the world will soon feel un-cool for not being part of the revolution. And since they want to be cool too, they'll join in.

STAGE TWO: Get everyone some ammo.

The troops are now commandos, but you can't send soldiers out into the battlefield with no weapons! At this point we'll get serious about infographics, custom templates, quick launch resources for dapp owners and developers.

STAGE THREE: Win

Press Releases. Surgical strike campaigns. Analytics. We'll establish specific goals, execute pre-planned strategies, then move on to the next objective.

But first, baby steps.

And luckily for you, the first baby step means FREE STUFF for you!

You're a WINNER! Here's what you get:

FOOTER BADGES!

Do you have a Steem-based website or Dapp? Let's stick a badge on it! Add that Steem-related ALT text. Add those back links to steem.com. Passively increase Steem's ranking in the interwebs and look fancy in the process!

Are you excited? But wait...there's MORE!

WALLPAPERS!

Wallpaper for your desktop! Wallpaper for your iPad! Wallpaper for your mobile device! If people aren't asking you "Hey, what's that cool thing on your screen?" then something is wrong. Wave your flags, dammit! WAVE THEM!

wallpaper_steem-icon_preview.jpg

So when I get more time, I'll finish up the landing page. I'll promote the @steem-studio account. Everything will be more officialized. Once I find the right people who can "steem" along at a consistent pace, you can count on a regular batch of assets hitting you every couple of weeks. You are free to use all assets however you see fit.

In the meantime, you can access any/all assets from this Dropbox link:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sfmueibkv8n7zcv/AADc-ZMOKbIuEi9GHVuaVUOca?dl=0

So what are you waiting for? Go grab a flag.

It's time to kick butt.

WHOAH!!!

Dude.

You are so scary and cool at the same time. So many conflicting emotions. You’re like the Predator. I want to pee my pants cuz it looks like you might rip out my spine...but I just want to touch the big, shiny laser cannon on your shoulder.

Or in this case...the shirt and license plate.

You da man.

My scary-ness couldn't be further from the truth. I'm a teddy bear! The reason I'm not smiling is because we just came off the hottest day ever recorded in our city, over 46 degrees celcius! :D

That... and my considerable losing streak in Steem Monsters continues...

He's a great guy, honest! (And yes, yesterday was terrible for everyone temperature wise).

with great beard comes great responsibility!

My flag is already up and firm on my phone’s screen (wallpaper). Thanks for the effort and for the Dropbox link.

I salute you, sir. And your flag.

Finally someone is making sense of all this drama mess that we got ourselves into. The Steem community has such great potential! Please stop squandering resources and time on the bickering.

·

I’m with ya!

It’s encouraging to see a more unified front this past week. Things are going the right direction!

Perfect! I look forward to seeing how it looks!

Posted using Partiko iOS

Fantastic, finally some Forward thinking. awesome!
May I also add that waving your flag in your own tent is not nearly as meaningful as waving it on the top of the enemies hill?
By that I mean people on the OTHER social media sites need to be informed about THIS one...which means WE have to go THERE and wave the flag so they come HERE.

·

Absolutely!

I couldn’t have said it better myself!

I love where your head’s at!

Cool!

I see you’ve got Steam and Steem on the same screen, haha.

It does get a bit confusing at times, but that is the SargeSTEEM TM brand after all (being in a constant state of confusion). Even so, I love STEEM and the changes it has made in the way we communicate digitally and the future potential good it will power.

Thank you for responding to my content and, of course, for the generous upvote!


STEEM On Brother!


Not sure talking about flags and war in that way here.

It took me 2/3 of your post to realise that you are not talking about downvoting something..

·

Haha! I guess you’re right. I’m flagging EVERYONE!!!

I’ll need to make that distinction next time. Thanks for the heads-up.

Me too. MY english is not perfect so I thought you talking about downvoting BUT in a strange way.
But I LOVED the "powered by steem"

Wallpaper downloaded and installed.
Thank you!

"And since they want to be cool too, they'll join in"

This is absloutr what i was talking about long time ago!😉
This is why the facebook and twitter became popluar also and this can be the win strategy also for steem.

And yeas i will do my part. In my place at home most of the people even dont know that there is a blockchain neither steem.
So few weeks from now hope we will have a trip and actually i already set few appointments to start to imtroduce steem to my mates.

Good job mate just keep it up. This year i think will be ours😉

Win strategy! I like it!

Go forth and spread the word to all mates!

Yeah. 😊

I just remember when i saw the facebook first time. My friend introduce it to me. And that time i join it because i felt if i dont join i will be less. Less than those who join it.

So this is also what we have to do with steem.

Mostly the people who join steem are makeing it because they wanna earn.
It is okay by the way but later they find out that is not much easy and they give up and leave.

Steem have to be fun and have to reach that category that those who dont use it now should feel that they are less if they dont join.
If we can do it than it will be amazing.

We are still in time. As i know the steem blockchain is just 3 years old and that is still just the starting period i think if it is all about marketing.

Funny but example i dont met here many people from Hungary or Slovakia.
Even they waste they time all on a FB i think steem is much better and can be more popular in the future.

Just really hard to explain them from a far distance.

·

Workin’ on it!

Posted using Partiko iOS

I think I found one Steem shirt on Amazon, but there should have been more.

·

Funny you should say that.

Apparel might be one of the next things I tackle.

YOu can find MANY at SPreadshirt. But I do not know which country you can buy the in. A lot of countries in europe . But similar services in other part of the world. Perfect way to make and sell t-shirts

Edited my last post to test one out. Looks Good!

Nonsense!

Step 1 - download the wallpaper
Step 2 - display the wallpaper on your phone
Step 3 - wave the phone over your head
Step 4 (optional) - loudly chant “STEEM STEEM STEEM!” while jumping up and down

You now have a flag.
