Hello steemians i trust we are all doing well, we have all come a long way in this engagement challenge and already in week4, we have also come far for bringing this our community to the very point it is at the present moment through our love and adaptability for the community our actions and words as steemians has gone a long way in placing us in the cutting edge of the Steem4nigeria community and our voices are now echoed throughout the platform.
How well is Steemit known in your Country?
The introduction of Steemit in Nigeria has gone a long way in broadcasting some of the intellectual voices and writings that has been silenced overtime, thanks to the advent of social media and the brilliant minds of the creators of these cryptocurrency called steem, it has better the way we look and relate with the situations around us. while writing about serious issues involving our society and still earn while facing the challenges head on with our hand put to our keyboards.
Steemit in my country Nigeria is not well known because quit number of people are yet to know about Steemit, we all know that Nigeria is a big country then as we speak we have over 215.87 Million population in Nigeria so I don't think if quarter of it in Steemit.
Do you think it's popular enough or there is a need for more publicity?
Steemit is the most popular decentralized application on the Steem blockchain,
Steem in late March, Steem has remained by far the more popular of the two chains; Steem usually review around 600,000 transactions per day, but as for now is dropping every day so I think there is need for more publicity to that Steemit can return to be the best decentralized app.
What are the ways you think the promotion of Steemit can be more effective in your Country?
In the 21st century i believe even in any business social media should be on the peak of anyone's list because that is the way to reach many people these days.
so i think it can succeed through
One of the Steemit values is “quality Makes Us Strong”. This means we welcome a unspecific range of skills, specializations, perspectives and talent. It also means we aim to work with a various group of people, and we’re always promoting the notion of equity, diversity, and inclusion. This is something Steemit is passionate about, we even have a full committee dedicated to it! The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee works to ensure Steemit is living this value every day.
what exactly are equity, diversity, and inclusion?
Equity does not really mean equal; equity can be defined as to consider others’ differences to ensure fair treatment. Diversity means that we have different voices, opinions, and types of people across our organization. Inclusion is when you feel like your voice is heard and appreciated, you feel included and welcomed into the conversation
awareness: canvassing at the excessively, speaking to people one on one and sharing ideas on what steemit is, we have more than 215million nigerians and i don't think we have 5% of the amount that has heard of steemit but so many of them know facebook so we can start canvassing at all levels to raise our social awareness and through one on one deliberation with friends and families, the key here is to keep on talking about steemit in any place we found ourselves, Just remember a drops of water makes an ocean.
Organizing seminar: what I mean here is that not the normal meetup but renting a hall and make it presentable, for instance one of the networking seminar I have attend it was so colourful so Steemit seminar should not be different. At least you are making the world know that you are making money in Steemit so you have to prove it by making it colourful and I believe with this through the testimony that will be shared alot of investors will come in and we will be able to recruit newbies after all Steemit is a free business that you sign up free of charge
Awards: this is one of the area that the Steemit team should look at, I think every year, Mayor’s Awards should be given to recognize those hard working steemians who have gone over and above to serve the community and who have made a notable difference to the lives of our Group residents. Expercially those that have been in Steemit for over two years. For example the awards can be cash prizes or car awards or a traveling tour and I believe with this it will be part of promotion.
Road show: I think another way we can promote Steemit is when we come together as one, every body with one t-shirt irrespective of the community uniform then walk round the city distributing fliers and this road show should be like a carnival and I bet you with this it will attract so many eyes and from there promotion set in.
Do you think Steemit would be adopted more in your country if the points you listed above are implemented?
I believe in projects such as what I have mentioned above and i think it will go a long way in informing the world of our presence in Nigeria and it will definitely bring people on board with fresh view to what we hope to achieve and as a team. just like they say teamwork makes the team work but to me i say steemit works when the team works, and when we increase the reach of our team then we can advance better within the community and i believe we are going to get there.
How have you contributed your quota to the development of Steemit in your community?
Yes I have contributed in my own little way to Steemit in my community by bringing in my family and friends into the platform, I go on promotion to tell people about the good news of Steemit and my promotion sometimes is on social media and now I am planning to create a Facebook page just for Steemit where I will be dropping lectures and testimony and I believe with this I will be able to achieve my goals.
I hope to meet people of like minds and share concrete attempt we have all made in promoting the community and what we can do better than alot of us on steemit, attach with the big people that started before me get insights into what has keep them going and share new discoveries too.
I invite my friends @jyoti-thelight, @icon-monday, @eliany, @patience90 and @ngoenyi to join us
