SpringSteem 2017!

8 months ago


Join us for what may be the single largest mass sign up event in the history of the internet.
Every year Baja California plays host to over 250,000 college students during Spring Break weekend.
We're going to try to bring them all to steemit!

Team VIVA has been hard at work promoting cryptocurrencies including steem all over Mexico and Latin America and in the course of spreading the good word we've made many friends. Now we're pulling it all together to create an event designed to bring tens of thousands of college students to steemit.


How will this work?


Beginning on March 17th 2017 (St. Patricks Day) we will be running the 3 day party to end all parties! in a venue which is a notable surfing and extreme sports area. Admission is free for all steemians!

There will be concerts, food & entertainment.
All of which can only be paid for in Steem Dollars.

If this ad is successful we will also be taking out radio, TV & print ads all designed to introduce young people to steemit in the lead up to the Spring Break weekend. Our plan is to get them blogging on steemit and we will be awarding free all day passes to the people who signup and bring over the most friends.

We also have a limited time offer for existing steemians who are reading this ad during the first 30 days leading up to the event.

From now until Valentines Day, you can purchase all inclusive VIP passes for the pre-registration price of just $50 SBD per day.
At the gate these will be $150 SBD per day or $400 SBD for a 3 day pass., so this is 75% off during pre-reg

The pass gives you unlimited access to food, drink & music, as well as unlimited full access to the extreme sports events and full access to the beach and surfing and there's even a zip line! ALL INCLUDED!

To purchase the all access pass, send $150 SBD for each 3 day pass to @springsteem.
Your purchase is recorded directly on the blockchain as soon as you pay, meaning your pass is also instant issue.
When you check in at the gate, just give them your steemit username to pickup your pass.
You can also buy passes as a gift for someone else, just put their steemit username into the memo field when you order.

This post is 100% steem powered!

p.s. I will be in the DJ booth all night!

I think this is a fabulous marketing idea! Resteemed. I think that you should hire @roelandp, the genius behind Steemfest in Amsterdam, to help with the project.

We're absolutely looking for more volunteers. I'll reach out soon and see if he's interested.

Everybody get on the bus!!! :) Hope for large sign up upvoted resteemed

·

Yep! That's the plan and thanks for resteeming this!

This is fantastic! I wish I could make it to this event! Sounds like a lot of fun to me! :D

·

We're really hoping you can make it. It will be a lot of fun. Most importantly we want to increase awareness of steemit to a whole new audience. The more existing steemians that show up, the more normalized people will feel. Kinda like "Hey wow, look at these guys. This is what I've been missing".

The truth is steemit right now is more like a large extended family than a regular social media site. I think it's time to grow this family again.

This is great! This could be the springboard the site needs! Thanks for puting this together my friend :)

·

You're welcome and I'm really glad to do this. We need this audience, they are the future of social media and so is steemit.

From now until Valentines Day, you can purchase all inclusive VIP passes for the pre-registration price of just $50 SBD per day.
At the gate these will be $150 SBD per day or $400 SBD for a 3 day pass.

Make that bold on your post !

Bolded and thanks for the catch!

What an awesome event , I sure wish I had A passport and more money lol ! Good luck although you wont need it ! this is going to be very succesful ! steem on !😉💙👍Upped and resteemed !

·

If you're an american you don't need a passport for this part of Mexico if you drive in from San Diego, it's part of the free trade zone. Your state issued ID is sufficient for short stays. Hoping everyone who reads this will come :D It's my first time in the DJ booth in 10 years.

Upvoted(as always), resteemed, and shared on twitter.

·

Never say never. We all hope you can come. This time you'll be barefoot for a good reason :D

·
·

Lol! I wonder how many gets that inside joke? Thanks for your encouragement.

·

Ack! Didn't think of the naming issue. Probably best to call it "Spring Steem" from here on out to avoid any possible confusion. Thanks for tweeting about it!

·
·

Actually I think it is cool calling it SpringSteem it makes it more memorable:)

Can't wait for spring break!!

·

Hope to see you there!

·

Thank you!

Nice! Wish I can go :D

·

We do too!

Looks like a great event! Resteemd!

·

Thank you! We hope to see you there!

Without me, as I will have committee duties :( Next time, hopefully!

·

That's a shame. With it being Spring Break and all I figured for sure you'd be free.

·
·

March-April is usually a period where we have plenty of committee meetings in France. Things are getting slightly better in May and then get busier in June/July.

·

Thank you for doing that and I hope to see you there!

Sounds fun. Cannot join but do enjoy yourself please. :-)

·

It's a shame you can't join us, but thank you!

·

Thats awesome, Wish we could be there :)

·

We hope you can join us!

·

Thank you!

Sounds fun! Upvoted

·

Thank you! We hope you'll join us!

THIS should be HUGE!!! All the ideas mentioned in written form are simply fantastic and highly enticing. Go @springsteem, GO!!! All for one and one for all! Namaste :)

·

Wow! Thank you for your support! You know we're always looking for volunteers to help with literally about anything. If you're interested in helping I promise we can use it.

Sounds like a very fun event!
Good job for the idea and taking action, I hope this will be a big success!

·

Thanks! We're hoping the entire steemit community will turn out and welcome these kids as we bring them on board.

Resteeming because I can't go, but want other people to go.

·

It's a shame you can't join us, here's hoping things change for the better. But thank you for resteeming.

Fantastic way to promote steem. A bit far for me though.

Cool idea! A lot of people from Arizona go to "Rocky Point" Puerto Peñasco for spring break. Where exactly on the Baja California is this going to take place?
There is a group that puts on huge events called SWAT at places like Lake Havasu. Spring breakers buy a package deal for their rooms, concert tickets...etc.
Possibly deals could be marketed to University of Arizona and Arizona State Students.

I wish you and your team the best of luck on your project! It is really cool! Steem on!

Great ideea! We are glad to help if we can! Good luck!

Imaginative idea. Though I am far away, I'll be watching with great interest to see how it pans out. I am now following you and hope you will also have a look at my posts . As a seasoned journalist, and at the risk of sounding pretentious, I do like to think that there is a measure of quality to my submissions. Best wishes for your venture.

Get people on board to help with the development and the overall "marketing" , make a STeemMobile :D , give them some steem cards , like gift cards with credit , or if you want make everything payed in steemD , that will drive some people out , but get the serious ones even more

Excellent idea dear friend @williambanks, I'm left on the other side of the world not to be so I would love to attend. Success !!!
