Steem Elevator Pitch Contest


You are at a major blockchain event. You want to convince me that Steem has a bright future ahead and is worth investing in. The problem is that I'm pretty busy so you'll have to pitch you idea during my elevator ride, that happens to be exactly one minute.

Elevator pitch

An elevator pitch is a pretty common but difficult exercise in the startup world. You usually have somewhere between 30 seconds and 2 minutes to convince a jury that your idea is awesome. It's important to be able to keep it this short to make sure that you have a clear vision about what the project aims to achieve and what it is at its core. A project is not just just a bunch of features stacked together, it needs to have a clear direction.
In the case of Steem, a blockchain with so many features, it will be a particularly complex task. It would probably be easier to make a 30 minutes video about it. But busy people don't have 30 minutes to give you right away, they might later, but first you will need to convince them during this first minute.

Guidelines

  • Post a video of you pitching the Steem blockchain, on 3speak, dTube or other video platform.
  • Make a post on Steem using the steem-elevator tag.
  • The video has to be 1 minute long at maximum. Not 1:05, not 1:01, 1:00. In these kind of pitches, the interlocutor wouldn't hesitate to stop you mid-sentence if you are taking too long.
  • 1 minute is extremely short, carefully chose which topics are the most important to catch the attention of the interlocutor. If your 1 minute pitch convince him the original idea is good, he will give you more time later on and ask questions.
  • A short time doesn't mean you need to speak faster. Be articulate. Quality over quantity.
  • Do your research, there s plenty information about how to make a great elevator pitch out there.
  • Your interlocutor is knowledgeable about blockchain in general, don't waste time over basic concepts.
  • The contest will last one week, starting now.

Rewards

This contest idea received a lot of support from the community and especially big stakeholders. There will be liquid rewards and whales upvotes based on the quality of the submission. To keep this decentralized, I propose that each decide whom to upvote/send rewards based on perceived quality, rather than electing an overall winner. I also encourage the whole community to check the contributions on steem-elevator tag and curate them.

Liquid rewards

Upvotes

Thank you all!

Steem on!

This post has beneficiary rewards set to 50% on @sbdpotato and 50% on @steem.dao

Post a video of you pitching the Steem blockchain

Just to be clear, this an elevator pitch to a financial investor, and not a content producer who invests his/her time and effort?

I respect this idea, but it may be hard for someone to gather up both the marketing skills AND the video skills to make their entry fly. I know someone will figure it out, but it's not going to be easy.

This is a pitch, not a marketing video, you just need to film yourself talking, so you ll need marketing skills but no particular video skill.

I did a post a few months back about how I was struggling to come up with a Steem elevator pitch. In a comment to that post, @mattclarke pretty much nailed it:

The internet is a desert, we're all nomads and each website is a tent.
Some are huge and elaborate, some are pretty basic. They look very impressive, but you can never be sure they'll still be in the same spot when you visit next, and unless you really trust the owner, you wouldn't keep anything valuable in one.
It's all we've ever known, so its hard to imagine anything better.
Steem is a huge, flat concrete slab, with a heap of guys boring holes in it, putting up big, steel girders and arguing over blueprints.
From a distance, and with no knowledge of cities, it doesn't look impressive.
Even the few single story buildings that have gone up are kind of underwhelming, and don't attract many visitors.
Real estate on the slab is cheap, but then nobody in the tribe has ever bought or sold land before.
Most people agree it seems pretty stupid, considering the endless miles of uncontested land in every direction.
Itโ€™s hard to grasp the value of concepts like plumbing, electricity, lockable doors, floor safes etc without having lived it, but those who can imagine the possibilities are learning, building, starting businesses, building reputations, getting to know their neighbours, and desperately trying to share their vision with others.

@preparedwombat if you did want to make a video entry, you're more than welcome to use/adapt my analogy. Thanks for the mention :)

10.12.2019 04:01

That's definitely a solid analogy... I think investors would appreciate the honesty, but are probably looking for something tangible like an roi or potential success stories like tik tok that is burgeoning after dumping money into a fruitful ad campaign... It's a tough sell to tell someone that's well aware that it takes money to make money to buy into something that's not offering them much if any control. Then we have the floundering of the top stakeholders that don't even directly participate in the ecosystem. Hiding in the shadows of a dpos is not going to instill any confidence or compel someone to compete at a game that they missed the start.

Timing is everything and IMHO it would take a miracle to turn this place around.. The premise here is a bit strange too in that our investor on the elevator knows about blockchain but apparently has been sleeping on steem. It's more likely that people in the industry are aware of steem but see no reason to jump onto a sinking ship.. Just being realistic here.. If I had hundreds of millions and thought this monetized social media smt experiment could work, I'd just start from scratch with a more fluid, mobile, and less confused system that learned from years of steem mistakes..

This is the FIRST time I have EVER used a downvote, for that comment by you know who about a dating platform.
There is a very great deal I do not like about the "New Steemit", one of them being the ability to gang up on someone and downvote them out of existence,
BUT
In this instance I think the dating platform warranted a down vote.
So he/she/it got one from me.

Were I making the pitch, I would start it off with this question: Do you think reliable, accurate, secure, untampered news sources are important to your life?

After the response, made by known investor, who would almost certainly answer yes, I would this:

Did know that some of the most in depth by some of the best writers, technicians, and scientists in almost every country are reported on steemit and many of the articles are extremely embarrassing to powerful governments and businesses, and organizations with enough resources to attempt to destroy Steemit, where these articles are published and Steemit and Steem are relatively untouched?

It's true. Without trying to bore or scare, I myself have accurately uncovered a really nasty thing and truth Steemit and my Steem was untouched and it is there for anyone to see at all times.

10.12.2019 05:33

I like the angle of proposing a question with a predictable reply.. Certainly this is a time tested sales technique.. First bit I've seen here in what I'd say is the right direction.. The essential element though is appealing to an investors profits. That makes this a very difficult concept..

10.12.2019 06:07
0

I beg to differ, of course most of the investors might be interested in ROI, but there are other type of investors who are interested in bettering humanity.
To this kind of investor the ROI relies on how much would their investment make society better. Therefore, I think the first task would be to approach the right kind of investor when this is the pitch to be used.

Are there not big problems in the world? I would ask the elevator man that question or something to that affect because he or she would need first understand the problem before he or she could appreciate how Steemit attempts at solving the issue of being censored, banned demonetized, spied on, abused, manipulated, robbed from, shadow banned, hidden, lied to, etc.

I still don't understand what's an elevator pictch. It seems for me like a presentation we do to get a job. Correct me if I'm wrong. I created a promotional video from what I understand, but I'm afraid that will not be accepted again. If I just understand what exactly you want, i would do that. Should it be a video with me talking about steem in less than one minute presenting it, or an animation video ? Or a presentation with powerpoint or any other application that creates presentations and record that. Anyway, check this and tell me what do you think ? I'm lost.

You know Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, sucks. They're censoring people. They got people banned. Have you ever been terminated, mister busy elevator man? One of the problems that we got is centralization. That is tyranny. The tech cartels become big and bad like governments. They become like Hitler, Mau, etc. That is why we strike back. Like Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. People are building alternatives to Facebook and the other social network ghettos. So, why would you not join them? Why would you not be part of history, elevator man?

What was Microsoft before it reached momentum? An unfathomable idea with no real audience in it's early stages. What is the one thing that we as human beings seek out? No matter our status? Interaction. Idea sharing. Emotional bonding. Reassurance. Attention, even, for some. Social media is not going anywhere because it's directly linked to what we all, as a vast majority, exist as, social beings. Imagine Facebook, but you can get paid for your likes. Imagine a social media construct unlike any other, set upon blockchain technology. This exists, currently, and I believe that with proper guidance and development, there is potential to reach and even surpass the success of companies like Facebook, before Facebook has a chance to dig it's heels into the Cryptocurrency atmosphere. Cryptocurrency isn't going anywhere either and if you compare that to the momentum of Microsoft, I believe you can realistically and viably do a direct comparison between the two and their success. I wholeheartedly believe in the possibilities that exist here. I sincerely hope you'll consider this opportunity; Thank you for your time.

I was able to do it in 57 seconds, which would leave me enough time to extend my hand to offer a firm handshake as the doors are opening. I'd then exit confidently and say something along the lines of "I hope you have a great rest of your day!" or "Enjoy your evening, get home safely!" with a bright and happy composure as I headed in the direction I was going.

I could do a video, but I'm really not one to put myself on camera. I could do audio, if that would be considered. I think an important key to this delivery is the tone I use as well, so it may not come off as confidently or strongly just being read. If simply audio would suffice, I'd be more apt to try it out. lol. As far as visuals go anyways, I personally think that a person's image and how others perceive them is important to the level of respect they give an idea as well.

Imagine you're a homeless man who looks dirty who's in the elevator with this executive of some sort... do you think you'll honestly get the same response as you would if you were in a tailored suit from head to toe looking like a million bucks? Unfortunately, no. These things are just as important and I don't believe that I'd ever be a face that would get successful results from an executive, should I ever happen to get the time of day with them. lol :P

Me: Have you ever heard about Steem?
Investor: Is it Steam you were sayin!?
Me: No, S-t-e-e-m, Steem!
Investor: No, sorry...
Me: Interested in buying some Steem tokens?
Investor: Are you out of your mind?
Me: Justin Sun is buying the company behind it.
Investor: Okay, I want every token you can sell.

To anyone who wants to participate:
I recommend to read the whitepaper and bluepaper again and research a little bit more to remember Steem's valuable features. We have more than rewards and posts to talk about.

  • Wallet addresses as usernames.
  • Free transactions, no fees.
  • Fast transactions, 3 seconds transfers.
  • Scalable: 100 000 transactions per second (as much as EOS, if not more).
  • ROI on holding steempower (currently 2%, can be a lot more if delegating for a return or curating).
  • Web app specific blockchain, which will keep it ahead of general smart contract blockchains.
  • Self funded DAO, where Steem Power holders can vote what gets funded.
  • Earn by posting, earn by curating (voting others' posts).
  • Create a community on the blockchain, which is independent of the website on which it can be accessed. (You can even create your own website to access it).
  • Launch (Airdrop or ICO) your own coin, with similar characteristics to Steem, with 0 programming experience.
  • Integrate that coin into your community, or your web application (website).
  • RC system ensures that an increase in users on steem will result in an increasing demand for Steem Power, causing price increase for Steem.

at the moment, STEEM is not worth investing in
until they fix inflation it won't be
the platform needs a bigger userbase and the top money feels like its the job of their clients to sell and market THEIR product
i'd keep an eye on it, it certainly has potential as tek and platform but under the current leadership posing as decentralized tribalism i doubt it's going anywhere

there you go, less than one minute, where's my $100k

truth too :)

There has been a lot of progress done this year and Communities and SMT are on the verge of being delivered and will be a great step towards mass adoption and Steem becoming the blockchain of dApps, short term price means nothing. If we realize the Steem vision and people get to know about it, I am convinced we have a bright future here.

12.12.2019 14:25

i'm not saying it doesn't have potential but as to mass adoption ... i doubt your local proverbial masses will be enticed by a network that requires payment to post more than one puppy a day , at the risk of being downvoted by anyone at any time ...

and the price ... as long as its hyperinflated it can simply mathematically not be bitcoin
so if the masses wont come there will be no advertisers and if the inflation wont stop i dont how the price can rise, theres a vast pool thats been mined at the very beginning, not vested in SP , just waiting to be sold of

in almost three years now, every single time i bought steem i saw the price drop a week after or so ... its euh
im gonna need to see it first ... but i'm sticking around , its like a pair of old shoes by now :)

pardon the double reply but i feel i have to add this as some of the upper echelon would like "one account per head" ... when i say registered i mean only for witness votes with proof of id. The others i feel it should be possible to get as many accounts as you feel your creative exposure or tinkering with the chain / condenser and whatnot might require since
argument (hehe) : the steempower in it is yours so wether you put that in one account or disperse it over five makes no difference, you have to buy it anyway or you have to get voted on (by whales) anyway, the number is the same
in fact ... SP dispersed over several accounts costs less in curation as low sp -> low curation rewards, i think anything under 60sp gets nothing or extremely rare so in se thats actually beneficial to the draining of the pool

whew

every time i tell myself im not gonna talk lol

right-o

innovation can come from any place so keep going

I hate to burst your bubble, but we already have permissionless money (Bitcoin) with network effect and a multitoken blockchain with network effect (Ethereum). So why use Steem/SBD? They do not even hold their value very well. SBD cannot keep its peg to the USD. I can watch the Steem blockchain with a VPS paying around say $10 a month with a very small amount of hard disc and process payments. Let's see you do that with bitcoin (huge blockchain download size) or ethereum (also huge) that's not talking about transaction fees. We have better utility with Steem/SBD and there isn't such a fear in changing the way things work. Do these advantages translate into economic success? only the crazy "Mr. Market" will decide.

If the earth was steemit id probably be a worm in the soil, id pop my head up out of the soil every now and then, utter some words about my life and then burrow back down, im not blessed with the knowledge you guys possess but im pretty sure im still as happy as you are, i came for the community and i stay also for that now , the price of steem is largely irrelevant it could go up or down but the people we meet on this platform, our friends and communities are priceless and that is where the true value lies, I cant do much to help the Steem platform as mostly i dont understand the technical side of things, so im relying on you smart people to pull us all through and make our platform the place to be \o/

I think the best elevator pitch I've ever read about, was the one given for a TV show.

Having very little time to convince the executive of what his show was about and the value of it as an investment, his pitch was:

"MTV Cops"



The series was Miami Vice.

It's simple, gets right to the point, while allowing the investor to imagine all of the possibilities involved with investing in the show.

While I won't be able to participate, I think we need to distill the essence of STEEM down to something short, punchy and memorable.

The pitch "MTV Cops" also linked the show with an established brand and demo. Best wishes to everyone submitting! :)
