Steemit Tips: How To Get Popular - Comment And Respond!
Hey there, you!
@shayne here once again.
Here's something I've been seeing this a LOT:
"Hi! I'm a Steemit n00b. Tell me: how do I become popular on Steemit/how do I get followers/how do I attract the attention of whales?
So... I'm going to give you the "secret hack" that will guarantee you followers, upvotes, and popularity...
How to gain followers and be popular!
This is really simple.
And comment authentically.
Here is the 6 Point Plan
- Go to the "hot" tab.
- Find posts that are interesting to you.
- READ IT
- Upvote it
- Leave a relevant comment
I'm not even kidding.
Do that and you will gain followers like you wouldn't believe.
Don't even bother making blog posts for your first week.
Just upvote and comment.
Try to make your comments as beneficial, edifying, helpful, and optimistic as possible, and you will find your follower numbers growing like crazy.
When you have a good and authentic following, you'll find that all of your posts get a good number of upvotes, and you'll earn a pretty nice income per post compared to if you post 10 times a day and pray that one of them trends.
Troll the #introduceyourself tag
New people are looking for friends.
At least they should be.
So check out all of the #introduceyourself or #introduction posts. Find new people. Leave a comment that shows that you actually read their post (aka: say something about them), and your follower numbers will shoot to the moon.
You'll also gain a lot of interesting friends.
DO NOT FOLLOW-BEG
Don't beg for people to follow you in the comments.
The best you'll get is a following of people who are only interested in their own follow numbers and won't even see or upvote your posts; the worst you'll get is flagged for spam and/or muted by whales who would otherwise help you out.
So DO NOT post anything that looks even remotely like this:
Wow! Great post. I followed you, follow me back.
Do NOT do this.
It shows that you didn't read the post you're replying to. It shows that you're not interested in building authentic relationships. It shows that you're trying to abuse the system for your own selfish benefit.
If you care about Steemit, Steemit will care about you
It's as simple as that.
If you post on this platform like a human being, and treat others like human beings, you will be rewarded.
You will become popular.
You will get upvoted and resteemed.
All your dreams will come true.
Feel free to ask.
I'm pretty friendly and I try to reply to every comment.
