Why Consistency Is Important on STEEM and Tribes Especially?


All of us know very good how important it is to be consistent in any work that we do, writing, training, walking, driving, etc... And a lot of us are sometimes too lazy to do the thing that we should do, EVERY DAY... And we are doing a big mistake in those moments... As I said, it is important in any job that we do, and I will try to explain why it is important to be consistent on Steem and CTP Talk from my point of view.

Firstly, when you start with blogging here, you start like everyone else, with 0 followers and without the audience... You are start with building your audience, your personality, your brand, and finally your expertise... You have to have something special that others do not have, something that attracts the audience, something yours... It's OK if you don't know at the very start what it is, we all had that feeling, but that doesn't have to discourage you to continue... Just sit and create...

Let's imagine that you have a few followers and you are getting a few upvotes on your blog posts... That's great, but on STEEM we have a few special things that do not exist on other social networks, and those are automatic upvotes... Someone would say that it's not a good thing, others will say opposite, but it exists and people use it...

So, what is an automatic upvoting? You find the authors that you like (the topic, their style, etc), go to a website like https://steemauto.com/ and you set-up the system that automatically upvotes certain authors with % of the vote that you decide. In that way, you are rewarding the author regularly, for his hard work and you will not miss doing that every time that he/she creates a post. This thing implies many other things, so let's try to get deeper into that...

  • From the ordinary Steemian point of view, it's important to find authors that are creating quality content regularly... What it regularly on Steem? An unwritten rule says that good authors very rarely create more than 2 posts per day (usually 1), as it takes time to study the topic and create a good article.
  • The second important thing is to find an author who already has X amount of regular upvotes on his posts... It can be 10, 20, 200, 500, but it has to be consistent... You don't have to be scared of this, because it comes naturally... If you create regularly the content, you will reach that consistency in upvotes very fast...

Why is this important? Well, with your consistency in creating content you are showing your commitment to the platform and your readers. And, from the financial point of view, the "upvoter" knows what can EXPECT from your posts and he gets SAFE CURATION on your posts... And because of that, he will more likely put you in his automatic upvote list, and you will get your safe upvote on every one of your future posts...

So, your consistency WILL BE REWARDED here, but you have to BUILD it! I know that it can be disappointing when you see a $0.01 (It shows in USD but you will get your rewards in STEEM and other tokens, which value can be drastically bigger in the future) value at the end of your post, but all of us have been there... Ignore that, and build, build, build... The results will not come overnight, but consistency will pay of.

good authors very rarely create more than 2 posts per day (usually 1), as it takes time to study the topic and create a good article.

I agree with that. However, there are some exceptions. Sometimes there are authors who post more than 2 articles/day. The only cons I see is that, sometimes they don't earn equally because of the autovotes.

You are right... That's why I said that it's rarely that do that... And, yes, it's not equally because a lot of people put auto voting just 1 post from the same author daily...

Thanks for the comment!

Many can't sustain the levels of consistency required here to make a real difference to their brand. Further to content-creating-consistency is engagement. I curate for @curangel and often come across reasonable posts that get very low rewards...When I take a look at how much that author engages with others it's almost always very little. Engagement, and consistency is the way to drive one's brand here.

For me, a user's failure to respond with validity to me causes me to never go back to that user. I don't just comment on my circle of friends either...I spread it around, trying to encourage others to engage. Some do and some don't. So, auto-voting aside...One needs to write with passion and quality plus engage with a degree of consistency. Just my thoughts after 2.5 years here.

Those are great recommendations from experienced Steemian, and it is a true that most of us fail in the engagement part.

Going outside of the community is very important thing as it can help with meeting new people. Besides that, it also helps to visibility of your tribe, or you cause. That's something that I have to work on in the future.

Thanks for the comment and curation. I appreciate it.

Many things need to combine altogether for this place to work out...It's getting there slowly and through people like yourself the word is spreading. It's like throwing a pebble in a pond and watching the ripples spread.

Thanks Zoltan, another wonderful article from an awesome author.

I love your writing style; you are able to deliver a simple explanation of how autovoting works, and how that process is affected by our engagement here on Steem.

There is another aspect: upvote on recent posts, especially ones that already have a high value ascribed to them, and follow the top 20 or so upvoters. That's how I'm coming to the attention of autovoters.

Most important of all: Be Brave! Writing and publishing articles takes real courage, and your efforts will be rewarded here on the Steem platform.
