That's the question of the day. I have a few things I can say about this. But I would love to know what you think. I think about these kinds of things all of the time. Now, I'm not saying we should only be on Steemit. There are other blockchain social networks out there as well. But I am saying we should always try to talk about reaching out to new people in as many different ways and as many different tactics as possible.
How do we promote Steemit on social networks?

Reaching New PeopleHow do we reach new people? First, you should probably befriend strangers sometimes. Secondly, try new things in trying to reach new people. So, again, number one, try to befriend strangers. You can be nice to them if you want. But I'm not saying you have to give them your money, your charity, your everything, excessively or even at all. I'm also not saying that there is only one way to reach people. In other words, there are many different ways to reach people. But regardless of that, it is important to be out there where people can see you both online and offline.
Your Brand/Your LandBrand yourself and be a voice. Well, you don't have to but you probably should not be too anonymous. Of course, privacy is important, meaning you want to be anonymous. But governments and others are spying on you according to Edward Snowden, etc, meaning an end to the 4th amendment. So, in other words, we live in a world full of many different problems. But the good news is that people are talking about those problems. But the bad news is that people are getting censored on social ghetto networks like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc.
Star Wars CensorI was just banned off Twitter for liking Star Wars. We all can see the censorship. We all know people who have been banned and terminated off websites for their free speech. So, some people end up deleting their Facebook accounts. Now, you can do that, but if you do, then how can you reach new people? Yes, there are many different ways to reach people. You can encourage people to join Steemit, Bitchute, etc. It's important to invest in alternative social networks. It's important to have different streams of income.
Diversify PortfoliosDon't keep all your eggs in one basket when it comes to your income, your wallet. I don't even have time right now to talk about all of the different websites (like Steemit, Minds, Weku, Gab, Bear Shares, etc) which we can try. I'm posting to different websites. If one website fails, then I at least got my content on other websites as a backup plan and security measure.
Crypto WorldI don't even have time right now to talk about the different cryptocurrencies out there and how we should try to invest in crypto, gold, filtered water, land, private property, silver, salt, wood, rocks, seeds, etc. There are many different things that we can do to help ourselves, but what use is it if we are not trying our best to encourage new people to join us? Now, keep in mind that you cannot always convince each individual to come onboard.
Patient JourneySo, please be patient and simply tell people what you think. Simply ask them questions. You may not always want to try too hard to convince people of what you believe. Now, some people choose not to be on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. I've been banned off these websites many times and I know how you feel, if you've been kicked off these tech cartel systems. But should we not share our stories with friends and family there?
How can they know?How else can they know if we don't tell them? Yeah, if Facebook censors certain keywords, photos, videos, memes, GIFs, links, text, comments, messages, ideas, phrases, etc, then why not write it in code? Why not try different words? Why not simply say you can't talk about it. Tell people to Google Search your name to find out more. Some people will do that. You can be cleaver like that. If you're terminated, then you can try to come back and make new accounts and try again. Save your photos, videos, articles, posts, content, etc, on different social networks, on different email accounts, different hard drives, on DVDs, etc. Have backups of your stuff as much as you can, better safe than sorry. Do it before it is too late. YouTube terminated at least 4 of my accounts and I lost thousands of videos which went back to 1996. Many dozens of hours lost. I've been banned off Facebook, etc. I learned this lesson the hard way many times especially during the 2010's. It was deadly.
Social ChallengesNow, there are some social challenges out there that dares people to do 77 pushups and post their videos on Twitter, etc, as a way to raise awareness of Steemit, etc. That is one way to do it. That is a fun way to do it. If anything, you should try that. It's important to build separate systems like Steemit, Bitchute, etc. But it's also crucial to be where the majority of the people are as well at the same time in order to challenge them.
