Here's a few quick tips I have found that will help you all get more followers on steemit.
Post things that are relevant to the community
Just a little extra thing, don't post stuff that will affect you or other people as you cannot delete a post on steemit. This is also another reason to play post good content.
Interact with the community, upvote people, get into some conversations and be friendly to everyone.
If you are really desperate try mass following (follow as many people as possible, we are bound to follow you back.)
Now good luck people and happy steeming!
