 In this blog post I'm going to give you 5 reasons why I'm voting for Jerry Banfield as a witness. Witness votes are very important because this is how we, as users, choose the committed people who will help Steem run and grow.

I'm voting for @jerrybanfield as a witness and I invite you to do the same too.

5 reasons why I'm voting for Jerry Banfield as a witness


These are the 5 reasons why I'm voting for Jerry Banfield as a witness.

The first reason

I have known and followed Jerry banfield for nearly two years now and I have learned a lot from him since I took his Facebook Ads & Marketing course, on Udemy at the time. I took a lot of his other courses as well and I found that he is an excellent teacher online because he can explain difficult things in an easy way.

I then started to be interested in Bitcoin after seeing Jerry's videos on YouTube and this encouraged me to go further in learning more about it and using it. Jerry also got me interested in other cryptocurrencies and he is the reason why I joined Steemit and try to write quality posts for the platform.

I have also started to work with Jerry Banfield more than a year ago as a freelancer and I am very fortunate to have the chance to help him with his posts on Steemit, his books and other marketing matters.

So the first reason why I'm voting for Jerry Banfield as a witness is because almost all I know about cryptocurrencies and Steem in particular, I have learned from him in his numerous blog posts and videos.

The second reason

Jerry is a very genuine person with a very good heart because he thinks of people's interests before his owns. 

He has been attacked recently by some people on Steemit who created an anonymous account for the purpose of spamming comments and flagging his posts. They say that he is a scammer because he sells courses that are made from information available for free.

I have taken about 50 online courses from different teachers, not only Jerry's, and all the courses were made with information available for free online! Everything can be found for free in blog posts and videos online, it's only a matter of how you want it delivered to you. I am willing to pay for quality courses made by him or other teachers.

Now, what about getting paid courses for free? 

Jerry banfield is giving the opportunity to those who can't pay for a course to have it for free. I don't know anyone who has this generosity. You can take one of the 235 paid courses for free here: https://jerrybanfield.com/freecourses/

So the second reason why I'm voting for Jerry Banfield as a witness is because of his generosity and positive personality.

The third reason

Jerry Banfield is a top 5 author on Steemit and his posts are of high quality on different topics.

See the list of top authors here: https://steemwhales.com/trending/?d=30

With the amount of followers he has, he could have decided to make lower quality posts just for the rewards, but he has maintained the standard since the begining.

Jerry is committed to contribute to Steemit and he is not only writing posts, but also promoting Steemit to anyone who will listen in his videos, podcast and blog posts.

So the third reason why I'm voting for Jerry Banfield as a witness is because of his quality involvment as an author with Steemit.

The fourth reason

Jerry Banfield has set up two powerful servers to serve the community as a witness on Steemit and he is prepared for a top 20 position.

The technical aspect is also very important when you choose for who you are voting. A low specification server, that may be misconfigured as well, can miss several blocks or even be down.

If I am not mistaken the server cost is $250 per month and this shows that Jerry is serious about running a server as a witness and ready for growth.

So the fourth reason why I'm voting for Jerry Banfield as a witness is because of his two powerful servers he has set up and his commitment to being a witness.

The fifth reason

Jerry Banfield has pledged to give 100% of his witness rewards to advertise Steem on Facebook and YouTube.

See this post for more information: Giving 100% of My Witness Rewards to Advertising Steem!

Considering that the cost of the two servers is at around $250 per month this is a very generous offer to give back to the community 100% of his rewards as a witness. Only giving back 50% would have been awesome, so 100% shows the commitment Jerry has for Steemit and the community.

There are also several other witnesses who give back to the community in other ways, but most of them just give nothing back. 

Also, Jerry is an expert at running Facebook and YouTube ads and I'm certain that this will bring a ton of new sign-ups to Steemit. He already has run ads for Steemit before using his author rewards and results were excellent.

So the fifth reason why I'm voting for Jerry Banfield as a witness is because he is giving back his witness rewards to the community in promoting it with paid advertising.

Final words

Would you please make a vote for jerrybanfield as a witness or set jerrybanfield as a proxy to handle all witness votes at https://steemit.com/~witnesses because 100% of the rewards he receives are spent advertising Steem?

Jerry Banfield had my witness vote for quite sometime, but a couple of days ago I decided to set him up as a proxy so he can handle all witness votes for me.

You can do the same too.

#5 is the strongest reason, by far! Very tough to argue with that one.


that was enough to keep him my proxy

Michel thank you very much for the now 100+ posts we have collaborated on here from your edits making the video transcripts into readable blog posts and for the questions you answer about Steemit on quora such as https://www.quora.com/If-the-website-Steemit-is-successful-will-the-value-and-price-of-the-cryptocurrency-Steem-likely-increase-over-time/answer/Michel-Gerard.

Michel I hope we can meet in person someday and introduce our families to each other because so far we have made an amazing collaboration from the USA to Thailand and I am not sure if we have ever even had a live call which is amazing!

I'm in. Honestly, I saw one of his videos and thought he was a guy who's going far. He's just got a fun personality and the drive to keep going. That's enough for me to follow and keep an eye on him.

Seeing his commitment to Steemit, and learning about the witness program from you just now, I'm upvoting him right now. Thanks for the head's up.

Good job

please give me a thumbs up. I'll return the favor. Thanks

So I looked him up on your link of the top 100 and I do not see his name. Did he drop out or is he under a company name?

Jerry put down his witness server so you might want to look at other witnesses.

Michel Gerard, I like the way you are promoting Jerry. I have already voted for Jerry's witness.

Jerry is a guide for steeming !!! Follow his methods and you will mint dollars !!!

I can only agree with this.

Hi @michelgerardonline, I feel your article gave enough good reasons that I am also voting for @jerrybanfield for witness. I also noticed the very professional way you reply to comments. I am going to visit your webpage to see what else I can learn from you. Your style is very polished, I can learn a lot from you and @jerrybanfield. I plan to follow and study both of you.
Thank you take Care,

Thank you very much @shortsegments for your kind comment. I am glad that this post helped you decide who to vote for as a witness.

Lo mas importante de todo y lo que mas me gusto que pusiste sobre @jerrybanfield es la humildad que lo caracteriza a el como persona y el querer ayudar a los demás son pocos los que se dedican a hacerlo me gustaría tener la misma suerte que tu de conocerlo mas y compartir esta publicación expresando lo mismo que tu buen post no importa el tiempo de publicación la calidad es lo que cuenta saludos @gmichellbkk

Thank you very much for everyone who has upvoted this post despite a few others attempting to hide it with down voting.

This showed me that not everyone is well-intentioned here on Steemit and that some people see only their own interest. It also showed me that there is not only love and passion, but hatred.

This encouraged me to post a backup on my blog here http://www.michelgerardonline.com/blog/vote-jerry-banfield-steem-witness/ and spend the rewards and more in Facebook ads to promote Jerry Banfield as a witness, so even more people will see it.

Thanks for the awesome post. I have followed, upvoted your post. Just follow me and upvote this comment for future upvote for your content.
