Actifit is a dApp that rewards its users with both Steem & AFIT tokens, simply for staying fit & healthy!
Some of you already know that after I saw my friend @iliasdiamantis using it (being a motivational & active freak myself :P) I decided to take a look, and as soon as I found out that the founder was @mcfarhat (a trusted and renowned member of the community), I knew I should absolutely try it!
I not only did I download the app & tried it, but after giving some tips to @mcfarhat regarding social media, he actually showed me trust, by giving me the role of actifit Moderator! Since that, I have been actively assisting in answering questions, writing content about the app so that I can help the new users and from time to time, assisting with the creation promotional images for the daily updates!
All that from June 2018 till now
Fast forward to November 2018
I have not been actively practicing my new duties, because I am still trying to figure out all procedures and guidelines but ... officially I am already appointed as the new Community Manager for the Visibility Category of @utopian-io! Excited? Yes! Scared? Just a bit!
It is a very challenging position and I plan to write about this journey, but to keep it short, my responsibilities include (among others)
- reviewing contributions about paid promotions
- discuss with project owners the best way to achieve extra visibility
- help onboarding new contributors and/or influencers
Open source has great potential, it is important that we help bringing it closer to the world and to make the world understand what it is about and how it can make our life easier!
The most important element for success
One of the most important elements for a Project and its Team is knowledge. The Team needs to know what the project is about, what questions it answers and what problems it potentially solves. They need to know who the end-users are, why they would want to use the project and how they would use it.
Let's take actifit app as an example
Actifit is an app (that is getting very famous in the steem blockchain)
-Q- Who is it for?
-A- Initially for steem users (in the near future beyond the blockhain, but we are discussing for now)
-Q- Who would want to use the app?
-A- Users who need extra motivation & incentives for staying fit, users who wish to accumulate tokens for future use, steem users who wish to try new dApps, crypto enthusiasts, investors, trainers, athletes, mums etc etc
-Q- Besides steemit, where are the users & potential users of the app?
-A- They may be using alternative social media channels such as facebook, twitter, instagram etc
-Q- Why do people use conventional social media?
-A- To be entertained, educated, motivated to stay in touch with brands they love, to learn news & updates
-Q- When you visit a facebook page / twitter account / instagram account of a brand you follow or you are interested in, what do you take under consideration for evaluating it?
-A- The number of its followers, the recent posts, the engagement in the posts (and depending on the platform, one may see the videos, the highlights (instagram) etc)
After a discussion we had with @mcfarhat, I thought that we need more engagement for Actifit in the social media scene. Discord is a very active channel, steem announcements also receive a very encouraging feedback by the app users BUT ... the social media platforms need a little bit of .. something to be more interesting, more appealing.
We need to be able to educate the audience, to onboard more users, to motivate inactive users to start using the app!
December will be the 6th month that this application is live and it is a very important month for everybody. People plan their Christmas holidays, gather with friends, make their next year's goals ... a festive atmosphere is all around.
So it seems to be a perfect month for trying to increase engagement and potentially the number of fans/followers!
GOALS: (a) increase engagement (b) increase number of followers (c) increase app downloads (d) increase daily reports
ACTIONS: Daily updates with interesting content & sharing some of the content in facebook groups. In instagram, specific tags will be used that are used for steem users & users interested in fitness & crypto currency.
COST: Zero extra cost, only personal time of the author & the actifit team
NUMBER OF FOLLOWERS - 30 NOVEMBER 2018!
|Platform||Number of Followers|
|Android App||1500 +|
|IOS App||800 +|
It is evident that more of the actifit followers are on steem and only a handful of them are also following in the other channels. We will try to change this and next month we will get back here with a report about what the achievements were. In the meantime we will be working on the strategy for next year!
Below you will find the Social Media Calendar I created for every day of December. The images used for all graphics were mainly by pexels.com and pixabay, all of them licensed CC0 (Free for reuse)
The color & icons of the app are used in a way to create a feeling of familiarity, and we use specific fonts (free for commercial use) for all the below graphics.
The images are optimized for instagram (1000x1000) but can well be used for all platforms.
I have included below some of the images, but not all of them (all of them will be shared with Actifit Management & Social Media Team)
