How To Increase Followers - A Guide For New Steemers

in #steemit5 years ago (edited)

This Is A Simple Guide To Increase Your Number of Followers

For New Users on Steemit

Welcome! Welcome to the first social media where you are getting paid for communicating online. You might have or might not have made your first post, but either way I assume you didn't make as much as the posts in the "trending" or "hot" section did. That's okay. I want to let you know that the users that are getting paid a lot has deserved it. They either invested a lot of money in SP (Steem Power) or spend a lot of hours engaging with the community, and by that creating a following so huge that it will seem impossible for you/me to ever achieve that.

It will take time for you to get there, but you can do it, just like they did it. I can do it aswell and I just figured out how to do it.

How To Get More Followers

The chart you are looking at here, is a chart showing the numbers of followers I have achieved since April 13th. As you can see, unless you can't see, my number of followers has increased a lot in the last couple of days.

This chart is a close up of the last couple of days. As it shows you I have gained somewhere near 8 followers a day, which is pretty good compared to before the 6th of May.

Why Such An Increase?

Start commenting! Yes, it is as simple as that. On the 6th of May I started commenting on a lot more post than I had ever done. I started engaging with the community, and it has really paid off. Not only have I increased my number of followers but it has been a lot more fun being on Steemit.

  1. Pick some topics that interest you.
  2. Scroll down the "new" page, pick a post that interest you, and leave a comment.
  3. Watch and feel the magic.

Don't be ashamed!

Don't be ashamed to ask for a follow. If you are already commenting on something you find interesting, they will probably also find your post interesting. Maybe don't ask for a follow in science when you are a strong believer in flatearth. Or maybe do actually.

Only doing posts won't get you there!

Unless you are a badass writer. I am not, but I have had some decent payout if you take into consideration I am a quite new user and only has 80ish followers.

You can't expect to get, when you are not giving. So start commenting on others post! And trust me, you will get some love, feedback, trust, money etc.

Welcome to Steemit, I hope it helped!

If you think this will help you then please hit that follow @arsenal49 or at least an upvote


It really helped, I'll start commenting as u said from now.
Thank you man...

Please follow me .

I don't have any interesting posts yet, but I think I can get into the track soon.

That really works, I have started get involved with lot of posts. In result it has helped me

Thanks for sharing the advice and real world experience on getting more followers. I am fairly new here, but have fallen in love with this community. Let's all grow together. You have a new follower in me.

Well thank you for reading! Without you I am nothing, so thank you for being a part of it all! :)

@rebeccaryan mentioned you had she not I wouldn't have gotten lost here
you got lucky neighbor ..good luck!

Haha cool! I know! She is a queen! I am working on a thank you post for tomorrow. I hope she will see it :) Thank you for commenting and engaging with me :)

thumbs up :)

Follow me please :)

Do you have a follow-up post with stats for the last 6 months? Could be interesting to see trends, correlation between # of followers, comments, posts and earnings. I'm just getting started and like to keep track over similar statistics.

Very good idea. But I don't. I have not been posting, commenting, and voting much lately, I can guarentee that you're not getting followers that way. I maybe got 50 followers in 2 weeks, compared to when I am active I got 50 followers in two days.

Mange tak @aresnal49 for some good advice!

This was really really helpful. I'm a new user, so I have been constantly looking for ways to grow my following. I decided to just jump myself right into it. A lot of people are giving me this same advice when asking them, so I'll take it as a sign. Thank you for your post!

Let have a try and start with this post ;-)

Thank you arsenal49 for this post :). It's clear and doesn't look hard to do but rather fun :).

You're welcome. I am wondering how people still find this guide :)

I found it through google search :)

Awesome! Never thought of that! What did you search for?

Well, I am a newbie on steemit, and want to create content in two directions English lessons because I teach English 👩🏼‍🏫, and yoga practice because I practice yoga ‍♀️. So I was looking for the information how to get more followers to my posts 😊

Cool! I am glad I could help! :)

How about a follow AND an upvote :D

Oh my lord! Thank you! :) I just saw you made 70 $ on one of your first post. Congrats man! :)

Yeah.....I was shocked. Thanks!

Great overview of your journey. Mine is similar.

There are some headline Steemit posts that have made a fortune, the highest I can find is 46k but the reality for most users is that it can take a long time to build up a following, and get some sort of regular payouts. Most payouts to start can be tiny.
My advice for new users is to stick with it. You will grow and develop as a writer. For a initial boost do a great introduction post. Sometimes these get nice payouts.

Yes. That's very true. 46k is insane! Wow! But if this keeps going at this rate we will all be able to make a fortune in some years. I already did an introduction post, but it wasn't that good and I don't feel like doing another just to earn some money. I write about stuff that I care about and interest me :) That way I like my time on Steemit :)

Well I just got approved today and decided to take your advise. Thank you. Looking forward to learning my way around.

Welcome then! If you already start now by engaging with people you can achieve what I did in just two weeks. No doubt!

Such a good post! Thanks @arsenal49 for the right advice and kind words.

You're welcome :) Thank you for reading. I hope this will also help you even though you are way more experienced than I am here on Steemit :)

^.^__/ but You have managed to do better :) now I follow You.

Not better. I don't think so. But thank you a lot! I will follow back. I like the post you are resteeming :)

Successful people do not only talk but listen (read and comment ;) ).
Thx for the advice, good to get some hints as a newbie here.

You are welcome! :) I am just glad you could use it! :)

I am brand new here - so I really appreciate the advice. Commenting is the same way I built my following on LinkedIn! Again, thank you.

Thanks for reading! I'm glad you liked it!

A wild upvote appears.

Gotta catch em all!

Wow! I can see that. Nice job man!

Follow me please :)

Why Such An Increase?
Start commenting! Yes, it is as simple as that.


Like you just did. You just gained a follower by commenting on my post ;)

Hehe, just glad seeing more people understand how to be effective. :)

If you happen to stumble upon great comments on the daily feel free to nominate them in the "Contest of the Day" :) winning comments and also nominators are now rewarded.

Thanks for being awesome! ^^

I will. No doubt. Thank you for upvoting and commenting. From my point of view I am just a man in small boat in a very big ocean just outside Steemland and then you stops by. A big juicy whale, jumping high up from the deep and makes a huge splash which then made it rain with STEEMS but most important drops of joy and excitement! I just hope this whale will follow my boat on the journey that hasn't even started yet :)

Hehe, don't worry about it. There will be more and more "whales" over time.
and I'm not really a whale, I'm just an active curator who is very active and likes to distribute steem as wide as possible and has tried to value commenting since the beginning. ^^

Well if not a whale, then a Blue Marlin :D I am glad I was right about the commenting. I will continue as I have done, and keep distributing as you are doing :)

Excellent advice @arsenal49 ! I am really enjoying Steem, especially the fact that it's not all about "friend collecting". The welcoming support I've received made me want to spread the Steemian word. Thanks for the post... See you around Steem ;)

Super! Thanks for sharing :)

Great article I will take heed to your advice.

Thank you. I am glad it can help you :)
