@timcliff is orchestrating a day of STEEM promotion tomorrow in which we going to blitz the internet with Steem related buzz, enticing further investment from those who are currently eyeing up the crypto market. There are many options to choose from now and tomorrow is our best chance at putting Steem in the limelight.

The goal of this event is to coordinate a massive social media "blast", where everbody starts talking about how amazing Steem is - all at once. I want to generate as much "buzz" about Steem across the internet that investors can't ignore it.

See his original post here

Tim believes that Steem is significantly undervalued right now and has a rightful place in the top 20 cryptocurrency projects and one of our biggest problems here is the lack of marketing.

Looking at the very active marketing campaigns of some of the other top projects, we can be sure Steem is lacking in this area and while it is not coming from Steemit inc, we the users must take responsibility. Just to be clear I am not apportioning blame to Steemit inc. They have bigger fish to fry right now with another hardfork and SMTs around the corner.

How can you get involved?

Personally I am going to throw out a bunch of Facebook & Twitter posts. I will also put out a YouTube video on this subject.

Building awareness of the event by resteeming this post or writing your own version is a useful thing too.

Perhaps you know people with money to invest? Tomorrow is the day to get them searching online for the benefits of Steem ;)

Remember, we are not so much trying to get people to join Steemit, but rather to invest in STEEM.

Here are Tim's tips:

  • Promote, but don't spam.
  • Focus on Steem as an investment (not on the blogging side).
  • Get the word out ahead of time, so that everyone in the community knows when to start "blasting".
  • Generate a collection of investment focused Steem memes and graphics.
  • Collect a list of positive things about Steem.
  • Users post to Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  • Collect news articles that talk positively about Steem.
  • Users create content on Medium/Reddit that talks about Steem.
  • Writers contact cryptocurrency publications and ask to write articles about Steem.
  • Users contact cryptocurrency based hedge funds to inform them about Steem.
  • Stakeholders sponsor paid advertisements.
  • Stakeholders sponsor paid articles in cryptocurrency publications.
  • Focus on Steem or all the DApps built on the blockchain (not just “Steemit”).
  • Users share their positive blog posts about Steem on various promotion services.
  • Users get articles published in local newspapers (usually free).
  • Users talk to their friends/family who are "curious" about investing in cryptocurrency about investing in Steem.
  • Try to save as much of the activity as possible until the day of the event.

There is a Discord group here where you will find lots of useful conversations & graphics to help demonstrate your point.

For example...

Tomorrow I will be changing my FB & Twitter avatar to this image (kindly created by Tim's partner)

When I write about Steem tomorrow on Facebook & Twitter I will include the following images, hand picked from Tim's Discord group. Thank you to all who contributed to these.

These images were designed for one purpose, so the creators don't mind if you copy them now and use them as they were intended... to GET THE MESSAGE OUT.

Let us take this opportunity to work together and pull out all the stops to put STEEM firmly on the map!

Event date: 3rd Sept

Happy promoting everyone 🚀

Tomorrow I will log into Disqus where I had a few thousand followers and see get a few discussions started about Steemit.com.

Marketing is not as much of a challenge as the steep learning curve. I recently wrote a post to assist with on boarding new users. The objective was to write a post that people could link to on other social media sites. Then new people would follow that link to get started on Steemit.

Most people I know who haven't come over yet or did and didn't stay active walked away because of the steep learning curve. They didn't stick around because they didn't understand how the place works. The default UI isn't very good compared to other social media websites either.

I'm happy to see steempeak's better UI for that reason. With tools like GINAbot and better UI options, the place will definitely attract more people. Eventually, they will realize that they are the product on other websites, and they are better off financially here. That's a huge difference to explain and share with people.

I'm hesitant to discuss this place as an investment too, and I'd rather promote it for no centralized censorship, no content filtering, no jail, and no shadow banning. Those should be the primary reasons people would want to come here, right? I know they are the primary reasons I'm here at least.

·

I see your perspective and I love it. There is a freedom awarded to us here which will not be found anywhere else.

For SteemBlast I focused exclusively on STEEM as an investment, which was a first for me.

I've been telling my old social media friends to join me here since day 1. And yes, for most it is too complicated for them to care enough.

Hey, thanks for the SteemPeak tip by the way. I made a review yesterday which seemed to catch a little wave ;)

Really appreciate that!

Wow - some really nice infographs going on there. Ill be sure to send out a tweet or two.

Really handy that crypto's been on the up again lately!

Absolutely right. And looking at the bigger picture, now seems like a great time to jump in as an investor...

This is great. How about give us the link of those social posts so we can also share it to our network?

·
·
·

Aside from these. I mean the social posts that will be created tomorrow. Thanks

·
·
·

Ah, I understand. I will do a bunch of posts tomorrow with some good links...

·
·
·

I will be posting tomorrow too before the event starts. If you join our discord group (link in post above) all of the related links will be shared there as they are posted.

Thanks Tim! I will see you in the group tomorrow...

Wow this blast thing is gonna be a blast, I already promote my steemit posts on twitter. Not as a currency but as a blogging platform, I'll try to help tomorrow to improve the tag position on that platform.

One thing that can make the blast happen though, if we can convince a thousand of us to buy 10 STEEM or SBD each AT THE SAME TIME! That would certainly move the price up! But we can't do that can we?!

Here's a blast for me too:

Thanks for the offer of help. Every person doing their thing will add to the overall effect. I have a few potential investors in mind I am going to connect with...

...and I am hoping for some decent investments.

That's great to have some relation however close or distant with an investor!

Good luck with that... All systems go this end!

Here's my tweet, I hope by this I did my part. I know everything counts with STEEM Blast, I can tweet to promote myself on steemit and it gets promoted by default.

The images are top quality. I will definitely use them on my other social media accounts tomorrow. Nice job to who ever has done it. They do show a nice reflection on the benefits of the blockchain.

·

They are amazing images hey... perfect for us to excite people :)

·
·

I'm looking forward to it now. Just to see if people can get something rolling and create some conversation and even investment. I will be watching the other medias today for any signs of the campaign.

I've resteemed, tweeted and liked other posts. Just small bits and pieces but if everybody does it, who knows. It might snowball like you intended. Need to change a few of my profile pics too.

I will be on my rooftop screaming the good word! ;)

My real plan is to hit twitter and get some social media buddies to help spread the word.

·

Excellent idea. I had basically abandoned my twitter account till now...

·
·

I quit all forms of centralized social media except Twitter. When @Zappl becomes more established I will make the switch.
