Greetings to you All Teams Of Steemit!
This post covers a detailed **tutorials of how to assist non Steemit users who wish to sign up on Steem to successfully get onboard and set up his dashboard to enable him begin posting to Steemit Community.
As part of my little survey done, I have noticed that many of us have been on Steem for so long. More especially my Countryside Steemians. For many Steemians I signed them up, some have spent a year, eight months and six months, yet they are unable to guide others who want to join Steemit to sign up. The whole thing seems complicated to them; from verifying through Gmail, phone number and using the keys from wallet to set up the dashboard. But these processes are simple if you learn it well.
That is why I think it is prudent to take Newcomers and even old Steemians who might have forgotten the procedures of the new sign up tool through using the tutorial updates patiently prepared here. I believe it would also be useful for the entire Steemit Community.
Please let's begin the lesson from here:.......
STEP № 1
Sign Up for Free
Using your browser, either Chrome, Google or any app of your preference, enter Steemit sign up at the taskbar. Make sure your data or internet connection is working actively. After logging, choose sign up on Steem. below is the interface you will see 👇
In Steemit Community, we should bear in mind that the entry point is free of charge, no money is levied on the new member who wants to sign up. That is why it has stated categorically that Sign Up for Free!**
STEP № 2
Verification through Gmail & Mobile number
Steemit website would need some personal information and verification of your credentials. Like many other platforms, due proof of Authenticity of the site they have to request some particulars as evidence before you will be accepted.
Here, Steemit sign up site request for your username. This can be your nickname or name of your choice that you would want other Steemians to know you. The name should not be more than 24 characters long. It should not be existed in the Steemit site to avoid conflicting with other users. The name should contain only lower case, but not upper case.
The next credential is your Gmail Account which should be valid to be able to receive and send messages. At some point when your Account is hacked your Gmail would be needed for verification during recovery of Account stage.
The third credential is your cell phone or mobile phone number.
Both the Gmail and mobile phone would be used by Steemit sign up site for verification.
Procedure of Completing the verification through Gmail and Mobile phone number:
... After Steemit sign up site accepting your steem username, please enter your valid Gmail. Click on send code. Head back to your inbox of your Gmail and copy/write your six(6) digits code as shown below the space provided. The system will tick with deep blue mark indicating that your Gmail is been verified.
..... Go ahead to select your Country of Residence from the pop up menu list of Countries flag & code. If you remember your Country code you can write like in Ghana, is +233, this will reveal the Ghana straight forward. Write your mobile phone number. In this case, ignore the zero(0) and add your number with your Country code like +233 2412*. Click on send code and receive the six(6) codes from your text message. Write or paste to continue the process. Below are what you suppose to do.
STEP № 3
Confirmation of being Human, but not a Robot
The system has to be sure that you are Human but not a Robot operating with the site. So, some small square box that comes with the writing "I am not a robot appear for you to click on. Here some objects like cars, trees or traffic can be given to you to select and verify. All these processes help the Steemit site to verify you aa the genuine person or human being. After being successful, you will be asked to continue.
STEP № 4

You are almost through to have your Master password generated for you. If all things go on well at the verification stage, the next step it to have your Master password highlighted with deep blue Text which says..."Copy password"
