Dos and don’ts on Steemit

in steemit •  3 years ago 

I think it’s a good idea to make a quick review of dos and don’ts on Steemit.

  • Create unique content : Don’t copy paste articles from other sites and don’t steal photos saying they are your own.

  • Reply to every comment : Don’t ignore users who comment on your article, this will create activity and your chances of high rewards will improve.

  • Be yourself, don’t play games : Don’t try to look too good and to trick the whales into up voting your posts.

  • Be creative : Don’t post the same content that someone else posted earlier, we all want to read creative content.

  • Be unique : Don’t copy someone else’s style. Everyone should have his own style.

  • Be persistent : Don’t let go of your motivation. You will end up being noticed by users who matter the most in due time.

  • Be patient : Don’t be impatient. Your post may be rewarded later in the next payout roll of 30 days.

  • Do your best : Don’t post in a hurry trying to catch a few bucks. Do your best possible content.

  • Be here because you want it : Don’t be here just to make money but because you want to be here in the community. Money should be secondary.

  • Be personal : Don’t post impersonal content, a few words about your opinion, yourself and some personal photos will be in your favor.

What are the most important things to check out before posting ?

Ask yourself if your post is really adding value to the platform and if it’s the kind of posts that you would like to up vote.
How valuable is your content that you are posting on Steemit ? Would you recommend it to your family and friends ? If the answer is not, then don’t post it. Work on your content until it’s good enough for the community.

Check your title

The title is the most important thing to be noticed, because it’s the first thing people are going to see before clicking on your article. Your title is your best friend. Take great care on how you write your title. But don’t be deceptive, if you use too much clickbait you may end up being flagged as a quick buck seeking user. Your title should reflect your content.

Check your miniature image

Your first image is the image used in your article as miniature, it’s also important to select the best image for your article. A bad image may impact negatively the click through rate on your article and you will earn less rewards.

Use 5 revelants tags

Each post can have up to 5 tags, choose the best tags corresponding to your article. If you use deceptive tags you may end up being flagged.

After posting

Once your article is posted if you want to have the best results you can do some promotion in the chat : https://steemit.chat/channel/postpromotion

Ask your friends to take a look at your post, if they haven't yet registered on steemit it's also a good way to grow the community. Share your post on facebook, instagram and all the other platforms that you are using.

End word

Try to make some friends on the platform, the more friends you have the more up votes you can get and the more you will be rewarded in the long run.

I wish you all the best,
Johan
