100 DAYS OF STEEM : Day 97 - The STEEM POD and Country Representatives

in #the100daysofsteemlast month


Yesterday we wrote about the plans for Community Curators and the STEEM POD.

Today we want to give more details on how we are looking to develop the STEEM POD project.

We want to take a much expanded STEEM POD in a direction that will place it at the core of our recruitment and retention strategy.

The STEEM POD and Country Representatives

With the conversion of the Community Curator accounts to operate at a continental level a logical next step will be to start looking at country level operations.

We are therefore going to begin recruiting Country Representatives as members of the STEEM POD.

The plan is for all members of the STEEM POD to become Country Representatives.

The main focus for these Representatives will be the recruitment and retention of new members in their respective countries.

To help with this we are hoping the existing members of the Steem Greeters team will want to remain in the STEEM POD as Country Representatives to share the materials and experience they have gained over the last few weeks operating their project.

We are also hoping some of the very successful recruiters from Round 1 of The Diary Game will want to become Country Representatives to pass on their recruitment skills to other Representatives.

In the future, when the world has returned to a state of unrestricted movement again, it is hoped the role of the Country Representatives will expand to include, for those willing and interested, organising STEEM MEETS and even attendance at events.

Initially the appointment of Country Representatives will be quite ad hoc depending on who comes forward and where they live. In due course we will be looking to make recruitment more systematic and strategic depending on where the best opportunities for growing Steem arise.

Although at the very start we will likely only be appointing one Representative per country we are very keen to drop that limit as soon as possible.

In fact our medium term goal will be to build Country Teams of up to five Representatives set up for as many countries as possible.

It is hoped to have at least 30 Country Representatives in place by the end of the year.

Country Representatives - Rewards

Currently members of the STEEM POD receive a direct delegation starting at 1K SP and increasing progressively to 10K SP.

We realize 1000 SP does not have much impact so under STEEM POD 2.0 all members will start with a direct delegation of 5000 SP, with the possibility of rising to 10K SP.

This should make the Country Representatives more effective at supporting the people they recruit to Steem.

Additionally the Country Representatives will be encouraged to make regular update posts reporting on progress. These will be supported with upvotes from @steemcurator01.

We will also shortly be announcing a new Recruitment and Retention Reward Scheme.

The members of the STEEM POD will have priority access to this to earn additional rewards for their work.

Country Representatives - Who Can Apply

Because of the increased responsibility and the increased rewards the selection process for the new Country Representatives will be more rigorous.

We will be publishing more details of the application process next week but some of the requirements for selection will include…

  • being able to demonstrate a clear commitment to the promotion and growth of Steem

  • being regularly active on Steem through posting, commenting or curating

  • not being involved in actively promoting or supporting other similar blockchains

  • having a wide experience and knowledge of how the Steem blockchain works

  • having some level of support or following from other Steemians in your country

  • not powering down except in exceptional circumstances

  • not being a user of bidbots except in exceptional circumstances

  • having at least a working level of written English, or being proficient in using an instant translator like Google Translate.

Priority will be given to those who have participated in The Diary Game or the other games or challenges run by @steemitblog during the 100 Days of Steem.

We see Country Representatives as a very important step forward in the growth and development of Steem around the world.

We are looking forward to seeing who will come forward to take on these key roles.

Thank you,

The Steemit Team

Hello @steemcurator01 @steemitblog i agree to be country representative for my country (india). My main goal is to bring more users and grow Indian community on steemit! And with more delegations I'll be able to support these new invited users!

I m also going to support my country India. I'll also make members to this platform.

Votes will definitely be spilt to multiple users who are new to platform and creating unique content on steemit world. All will happen when i get more of delegations to support the users :). Thank you @steemcurator01

This is a great idea @steemitblog has brought on board. I think Country representatives are going to work effectively to recruit more people into Steem. I believe that if these representatives are empowered they will work efficiently as much as possible. I want to wait for the more detailed of how we can apply so that I represent my Country Ghana. Thanks very much for this updates.

Glad you like the idea. We will look forward to receiving your application when we posted the details next week.

Thanks for your great motivations, I am following....

Beautiful initiative. Since I'm always active on steem I guess I'll work in close contact with the African country representative, particularly Nigeria.

Let build this blockchain and make it attain greater heights.
I have already submitted my application for the HOST YOUR OWN CONTEST.

We have tasted the waters of season1 which is almost coming to an end and its been awesome.
I know season2 is going to be much more amazing.cant wait!

We are therefore going to begin recruiting Country Representatives as members of the STEEM POD.

Hi, Steemit Team personally I'm happy and glad that you seeing these needs.

To help with this we are hoping the existing members of the Steem Greeters team will want to remain in the STEEM POD as Country Representatives to share the materials and experience they have gained over the last few weeks operating their project.

I'm happy to help with the materials and experience that we have gained through our projects with the incoming new Country Representative recruitments. In fact, I'm happy that more human resources coming in helping with newusers and more focus too.

We will also shortly be announcing a new Recruitment and Retention Reward Scheme.
The members of the STEEM POD will have priority access to this to earn additional rewards for their work.

🤩 Wow this is so motivating for us in STEEM POD team and we feel that our work is being acknowledged through this reward. We hope that this reward will be attractive enough for us to work harder.

I have prepared weekly reports on behalf of the steem greeters team.
Steem Greeters Team Weekly Report
I'm sorry that I took the time to prepare it as it took me some time to track and log in their progress into the tracking table on the google spreadsheet, together with curating works and real-life obligations.
I hope with a new recruitment in-country representative the workload becomes lighter.

Thank you The Steemit Team for the continuous support from your team 😊

Dairy 6-7-20

Diary 7-7-20

Wow.. I am glad and happy for the swift response. And I will be more calmer next time. Will post my dairy after four days henceforth.. Kudos to the you..

By the way, I have a contest that I would love to host but I don't know how to really go about it

Sorry for the delay - all posts now voted up to date.

I would like to be a representative for India.

Muy bien a seguir trabajando, apoyo estas grandes ideas.
Se de muchos steemians que estan regresando a la plataforma y los estoy ayudando a integrarse es algo importante por que son creadores muy importantes steemit es mi primera casa por eso nunca la deje

As a member of the STEEM POD, I am at your disposal and will, of course, support any program established in favor of newcomers and the platform in general. I live in Venezuela and, like a large percentage of my compatriots, we face serious problems with electricity and the Internet. However, that has not been an impediment to attending training and support with Upvotes, for the newcomer. I have great support from my colleagues in the Steem Greet community and I am very grateful for that. In view of the new proposal, I believe it would be possible to continue providing support and training to each newcomer, further strengthening the points exposed to be a representative of the country. I believe that each Steemian can be prepared to be a promoter and representative of their country in the future. What are some points that we could reinforce in the training, orientation, and support of the newcomer? Having this clear would make your training guide you to the best use of the platform and in accordance with what the Steemit team expects and requires. Working together and in harmony, we can achieve a solid platform and a STEEM Up.

You supported me in my adaptation to the POD Team and you are surely a great support for your newcomers in your area. If you have more power, then you can realize it in a larger volume!

Thanks for those words it is good to know.

Ohhh, I am really excited with what will come, I am one of the hopes to be part of the steemit team and represent my country in the best way. I really want to do my best! thanks @steemitblog, here I will also leave my post last 6 days, @steemcurator01 thanks for the attention:

>>>> Expires in 14 hours <<<<


Hello, @steemitblog and @steemcurator01!
Payout for my post " Day 30, July 2 " will be tomorrow, but curator has not voted for this post yet. Post Day 31, July 3 was also not voted yet.

Saya sangat tertarik mengajukan diri sebagai perwakilan negara Indonesia, tetapi saya tidak memiliki waktu untuk bisa bekerja secara maksimal dalam merekrut dan mempromosikan Steemit. Dan saya juga tidak memiliki waktu yang cukup melakukan kurasi secara maksimal.

It would you be great if you would like to get involved somehow.

I am from Pakistan and try to grow Pakistani community on steemit because it's trusted and amazing platform.

It has been 6 days since this my post have not received a vote.


HEY @steemcurator01 ,

Hindi translation is ready:- 100 दिन STEEM : दिन 97 - The STEEM POD and Country Representatives

There are seven beneficiaries in the post 3 charities and 4 promoters.

Pls consider upvoting as your one upvote is doing so many great things

To be honest, I like to promote steemite as a decentralized social media and to my friends wherever I am.
I also want the opportunity to be a part of this, but my busy work may not be able to fully have the full time to become a consistent country ambassador for this.

However ... 2 of my posts that have entered day 5 are still empty of curation by @steemcurator01, I hope you glance at them for my motivation






Good day steemit team, this is one of my diary post which hasnt get vote yet.
Thank you for organising this activity, I will write until day 100th!

The concept of country representative looks good. Keep growing ....

Mr. @steemitblog, you can count on my support and experience to reinforce the recruitment, retention and training of new users in Venezuela and some other country where it is required.
Señores @steemitblog, pueden contar con mi apoyo y experiencia para reforzar la captación, retención y entrenamiento de nuevos usuarios en Venezuela y algún otro país donde sea requerido.

Как здесь заработать

This plans are shaping really well, the organization improves and the work is more focused now. Is been set a great program to continue growing.
It will be a pleasure to present my application for Country Representative for México, learning the how-to and helping in the process to bring more people to this great platform.
Looking forward for the news. Congratulations on all the projects of the Steemit Team!!
Best Regards!!

This is a really nice move to make steemit the best social blogging platform. I will tell my partner to apply here.

Hope am not too late to this? Just joined the movement of steemit and hoping for my best to this platform.

This "The Diary Game" is on its sixth day. Thank you for your attention

My First post haven't been checked yet but grateful they were able to see my #musicforsteem entry. Thank you so much in advance for noticing.

I would be happy to represent India!

Thank you steemit for the details

I am already a member of the POD Team and will also claim to be the representative of Ukraine. The more weight and solidity I have, the more I can disseminate information about STEEMIT in my region.

People need the idea-dream that STEEMIT represents, when a person can become a blogger, writer, realize his talents and receive support information and STEEM rewards for this.

This is the model that many people dream of, and they need to know that there is already a community working on this principle.

Thank you for bringing people closer to their dream. This is a great work.
