I was blessed last night to speak to a room full of enthusiastic people at my 1st public presentation which was streamed live through YouTube.
There were 25 people at the meeting and 37 people watched the live stream. So, I am very happy that a total of 62 people were yesterday present with me to hear what I had to say on this vast and wonderful subject which is poised to change the lives of so many around the world.
It is possible to watch the recorded YouTube LIVE feed but the image & sound quality are poor, and shot from one angle only. So I wouldn't recommend this unless you are particularly keen to watch it immediately.
What did we achieve during Bali's first Steemit meetup?
Below I have summarised some of the feed-back from the group:
Gratitude for a much more solid understanding of the mechanics of Steemit
Excitement to be part of this new Steemit community which has been born here in Bali
Happy to be part of a growing digital community which has actually had the chance to meet in the flesh!
All involved were excited to get started asap
What did people seem most interested in?
How much money can be made!
Advantages of building their own projects using the Steem blockchain
Fundraising project potential through Steemit
Capitalising on the Guild involvement - and creation of new guilds
How to gain further assistance in moving quickly up the ranks
To answer this last question clearly...
I will tomorrow be releasing the link to a website which outlines what I can offer you. After one year of experience on this platform, my assistance will benefit any newcomer enormously. As a beta platform, Steemit does not yet have the simple functionality of Facebook. And assistance is required to avoid spending hours at your machine doing research.
As an example of someone I have helped recently @baligirl (the daughter of a friend from our local village) who is just 16 years old was able with her very first post to earn over $120, which for the locals here in Bali equates to the average wage for an entire month of work.
Now it is only a question of time before her entire village are using Steemit.
STEEMIT IS ALREADY CHANGING LIVES AND YOU ARE STILL AMONGST THE EARLIEST ADOPTERS!
What comes next for me...
Aside from the numerous projects in development here at Bali Steemit HQ, there will be a full day of Steemit training at Taman Petanu Eco Neighbourhood leading on from yesterday's talk, dedicated to expanding your ability to optimise your posts and maximise your potential on Steemit.
For those of you who are unable to make it to Bali, make sure you keep following my account and look out for the website which will clearly explain how it is I can help you rise quickly up the ranks, capitalising on this unique moment in history when social media merged with cryptocurrency.
I can help you, no matter where you are in the world.
On a final note
I am stunned and deeply grateful to @russmaier who created this huge & wonderful installation of 600 bottles filled with coloured water (also seen at the top of this post), providing the perfect finale for those of us who wanted to continue talking after the meet-up.
Thanks to him STEEMIT has been placed firmly on the Bali map!
