I notice as the prices go up, engagement and daily posting goes way up here. I also notice as prices go down, people tend to leave and not be as active. This is insane! The best time to grow your core followers and establish yourself is when the prices are going down and less people are creating content!
If you only create content on Steem when the prices are high, you are not a real Steemian! Real Steemians work hard every day regardless of the prices to create good content and increase their followers and engagement. What better time than when the flakes are not even logging in to make an impression on people who matter here?
Remember the more posts created each day the less each member will earn from the Reward Pool. Although the prices may be down, you will notice more returned to you for each post/comment you create!
Take a look at promoting posts as well. I noticed the average cost for promotions is just 1/5th what it was back a few months ago at the highs! This is a great opportunity to get more exposure on some of your posts by paying for promotion.
