#Promo-Steem: Promoting #Steem
Is there something fundamentally being missed?
Despite banging my head against a brick-wall on this subject over the past +18 months, I still strongly believe that #Steem is missing a golden opportunity when it comes to getting a foot on the ladder of Social Media.
It's all about the image
It's not rocket science to appreciate that when it comes to Marketing and Promoting a product, image is the key.
You can have the best product in the World in a market that you are trying to break into, but if your image is not right, then you will struggle to break into it.
Steem is no different.
Is #Steem sexy enough?
A simple question you have to ask yourself is .... "...is #Steem sexy enough to the outside World?"
Sure, I have absolutely no doubts at all that there are some unbelievably talented technical people working on some of the most highly cutting edge developments on the Blockchain and for this I applaud all the hard work and dedication they are putting in.
This is not the issue.
The issue is that you can have the best technology, but if no one know's about it, what's the point?
Is #Steem over thinking it?
More often than not, the best ideas and best products are the most simple ones to take to a Market.
You only have to look back over history at those products that have influenced Markets.
They have generally been the ones that people say after the event how simple they are.
When it comes to #Steem are people simply over thinking it and attempting to in essence re-invent the wheel.
Back to basics
Let's go back to basics and look at what #Steem really is.
Steem is a very powerful tool that allows rewards to be distributed to those that the Community feels brings added value to the Blockchain.
These rewards can then essentially be used to either "lock-in value" in the Blockchain or cashed out to pay for what is in essence a wage.
Culture of seeking the optimum Return on Investment
When I first joined the #Steem Community, it was awesome to watch rewards being distributed to those adding value to the Blockchain, however this was soon replaced with a culture of seeking the optimum Return on Investment.
Sadly, I strongly believe that this culture of seeking the optimum Return on Investment has come at a very high price.
#Steem needs to find itself again
It needs to believe in itself and believe that it has the power to change the World via Social Media for those ones that maybe less fortunate than the rest.
Thanks again for reading.
