How To Succeed on STEEMIT - Quick Guide For BEGINNERS !

in steemit •  2 years ago

Welcome to steemit!

Are you lost, confused?


So you joined Steemit hoping to make 100$ out of every post you publish.


But you're immediately left disappointed when your first post goes unnoticed, and the subsequent posts earn only a few cents each.

Well, it's a rude shock isn't it?

However it's also an important wake-up call because Steemit is not a get rich scheme, it's a social media site that pays.

You definitely need to put in some effort to learn about the workings of the site.

And your hard work will definitely reap you benefits one day. Because it's a reciprocal relationship - the community grows you grow and vice versa.

From what I've learned, here are a few quick steps for you to get started and succeed on Steemt:

1. Be consistent

As I mentioned in my previous article, consistency is the key to success on Steemit, so you need to stick with it to see the long term benefits.

And to know why steemit is the right place to be right now, you need to read this article by @timcliff

2. Curate

You might not be able to post everyday, yet you can curate content which is as important as sharing awesome stories.

Read the guide to maximizing your curation rewards by @liberosist to undersatand more about curation.

3. Interact

Comment, chat and engage with the community.

Even if you have amazing content, it would be like a undiscovered star in the universe if nobody finds it. Well, technically it will be discovered one day, but you can help hasten the process.

Steemit Chat is a great place to connect with like-minded individuals.

4. Be Original

Plagiarism is frowned upon, and originality is encouraged.

Be yourself, be happy and spread the love. The community is all about caring for each other, so don't worry if you don't see the love yet - it will come knocking on your door pretty soon.

5. Follow

Don't just try to blindly increase your follower count, go out there and follow some awesome people who share interesting stuff and offer tips/suggestions for people new to the site. To name a few, in no particular order:

@trafalgar - humorous, jovial guy who brightens up your mood with his witty posts

@papa-pepper - always sharing useful, informative tips in his posts/videos and he also organizes amazing contests

@kaylinart - her blog is full of content, and you can keep reading all day

And several other helpful, kindhearted folks who go to lengths to make newbies feel welcome like @cassidyandfranks @surpassinggoogle @thecryptofiend @acidyo @doitvoluntarily @pfunk @kus-knee @razvanelulmarin @aggroed

Hope you enjoyed reading! Steem on!

yes, it is essential to learn from the best. happy steeming!

Awesome information. I'm still a newbie, and this was really helpful in learning best practice, as well as affirming that I just MIGHT be doing something right so far! I look forward to showering the good content I find with upvotes, and POWERING UP to express my approvals even more.

Having worked in marketing for a few years has taught me that content is king. It must be shareable and unique! People must feel like they get something out of it, not just a mindless read. And it's even better if the design is nice.

Cheers everybody!
