What is SteemFollower?
In short: it's a voting ring. (but a good kind)
Voting ring means a group of users who vote on each other's post. This therm usually have a negative tone and referring to a closed circle of people who abuse Steemit rewards system. On the contrary, SteemFollower is a program, anyone can join and take part of the fun.
The main reason why you should try
If you want to be "somebody" on Steemit you must write good articles, (that's very-very important) and you have to make sure that as many users sees your post as possible.
Why is it hard, can be more clearly understood, if we take a look at what's happening on Steemit after you finished writing your latest article, and you press the Send button:
Your post gets registered on the blockchain and becomes visible to other users in the created feed and also in each feeds regarding which tags you have used. Keep it simple, I'll only talk about the created feed for now.
The average number of posts created on Steemit is 1500-2000 every hour! Which means, your post gets lost very quickly. People who follow you, can see your post in their own feeds of course, but the rest of Steemit users don't have the chance really...
If you want to test it yourself, here is an experiment for you:
1 Go and check out the created feed.
2 Memorize the title of the article on the top.
3 Wait 1 minute and refresh the page.
4 Now, try to find the article you have memorized. I bet, it will be very difficult if you even succeed at all.
Ok, that's clear now. This is one of the reasons why some people are not making anything even they write very good blogs. If you choose the right tag, that can help, but the tendency is the same, eventually your post will get lost.
The Upvote Exchange
SteemFollower is different. It is a unique opportunity for any writer to get noticed. Unlike on Steemit, here you only compete with around ~2,600 users and not with 300,000.
How does it work?
Most importantly, you have to vote on other's posts. Why? Because SteemFollower based upon the something-for-something principle.
To be more precise, something-for-something-MORE!
If you are new on Steemit and you have little SP, (less than 50) you can get two times more worth of upvotes than you give. Example: If your vote worth $0.01 you will get $0.02 in your SteemFollower account. Yes, you heard me right, 2 for 1! You can see your actual SBD balance at the bottom of the page:
It is called points, because this is not actual SBD but a promise that your latest post will be visible on the site for others to vote on, until your post(s) received that amount of SBD in rewards. It can be received on one post or multiple posts, always your latest blog article will be visible on SteemFollower.
You can adjust your voting power and vote on more posts if you like to.
The Follow Exchange
This is really simple, so I won't waste your time too much here:)
You can follow 30 users every day. Every person you start to follow, you get point (again).
Each point you earn, means a potential new follower. Similar to Upvote Exchange, your profile will be listed until you run out of points.
If you advertise SteemFollower and you share your referral link and someone decides to join under your referral, you are rewarded with three new followers. Not only that but you will receive 5% of your referrals upvote as well. It does not affect your referee's rewards. Example: Your referee's upvote worth $0.10, you will receive $0.005. Doesn't look too much but you can have as many referees as you want!
Speaking of which, here is my referral link:
Please use it to register on the site, it cost you nothing, but helps me a lot:)
