Creating a post or commenting on people’s post and earning a reward in the form of upvote are interesting aspect of steemit. As a steemian, it can be quite frustrating when you painstakingly create a post for five consecutive days and all those posts ended up having zero view, zero comment and zero upvote till payout day. Those that have been in this situation in the past will understand the feelings. The feeling is definitely that of dejection, frustration and less motivation to do more.
I have found myself in this situation in the past. Sometimes I made posts and doesn’t get a single upvote. I know some of my fellow that has abandoned their account due to the frustration of lack of visibility and upvote on their posts.
What to do:
-DON’T STAY IN ISOLATION: For you to get consistent upvote on steemit, you need to socialize and reach out to other steemian by following them. You can’t stay in isolation and expect upvotes from people. Steemit is a community and you have to reach out to people in that community.
-EXPLORE THE POWER OF GROUP: explore the power of group by joining discord and steemit related community and make yourself visible and contribute to the group you belong. The group will be of help as you go along in go along the way. You stand a chance of having your post been upvoted, curated or resteemed by members of your group.
-BE CONSISTENT IN MAKING POST: One of the biggest secret of getting regular upvote is to be consistent in creating a valuable post and making an intelligent contribution on other people’s post. There is a popular saying that “the secret of an author’s getting more sales is by writing more books’.
CONTEST: Look out for contests and participate in them. You stand a chance of getting upvotes even if you don’t win the contest.
