Have you tried to introduce your friends and families to Steem? How did it went?
Yes I have.. Too many times.. And the success rate was not that good... i have kept tabs on how many people I tried tto ppursuade and till now iI have tried to introduce steem to 9 people over the last month. Some of them were my family and others were friends.. And almost none seem to show interest that much.
The first time I approached some of them was while talking about what is blockchain.. How it is going to take over the world one day as a competition to fiat money. What are there applications..And all these technicalities had them feeling bored.
I switched my approach to talk about how another social media other than the traditional ones was doing so good. I talked about how steemit worked.. How it rewards content creators with tokens exchangeable to real money and that seem to get their attention... And then I used the blockchain annlogies to make them understand why it is not like any other ponki scheme and it made them bored again.. But I have successfully make 3 people join steem. My sister and two of my close friends.. They post regularly and are doing quite well.. I know I'm not the perfect one to be the evangelist of steem...but I tried and trying and will try again and again to contribute to steem any way I can..
Honestly speaking yes i have tried a lot of start working with steemit with my friends and family. But as this is online field and they know i was working here for last 3 months and did not achieve my goals and in my country India no body want to struggle hard everyone want to make money as fast as possible and become rich person.
I have told many time to write useful blogs and make money with steem but they always denied and tell this is not going to give me anything.I know the importance of my work but i am living in India where people only believe If we are earning from any plan. They only invest when we take gurantee of our website for their earning.
They even do not try to get something from site simply they give me negative thoughts about Online earning and they demotivate me from my work but i would prove this wrong one day and shoe them my earning.
Today recently i told my friend about steemit then he told yes i will start from today and after some time he ask me what will i get using steemit i told you have to work hard for many times then you will gain massive income. He was continuous asking time frame of money he will received but never was asking how to work and make our profile reputed.
This is the status of my friends and family and a short review about what they have replied to me for steem.
Yes ,I introduced my friends to steem but they fill this all is not true because government are not legalize the cryptocurrency and Bitcoin then how it will be helpful in future.my friends always tells me that when you withdraw your money from steemit then you can suggest me to take part in steem otherwise no.when I am writing answer of question in a musing.io then always see my blog what I am writing and tells me why you are waiting your time in this activity instead of that you can learn something which will be helpful in your near future but how can I understand them that there is no need do any hard work do simple work now and your future will be one bright.
I know steam in early 2017 initially no one believes that a high line can make money, after passing a month more Finally I can also make a little withdrawal to them that steem can to make money.
from where I got to know the team community in Indonesia and finally we often gather to discuss how best to write and or create good content in Steemit.
after the existence of some communities in the area around me, I started doing promotion to my closest friends so there are currently many who use steem, but there are also surrender in the middle of the road before to make withdrawal, but I always liked to write so i assume sbd as reward is not the main purpose.
so writing is already used to me, to reply to chatting people can be up to 1000 days it is not difficult to do at this time, it's good to do if they feel like. so the conclusion is a lot of the results I get after promoting them to the people closest.
Yes i have
I try to bring the right platform to the right people
for those who are mature or casual bloggers, long or short form writers, and regularly enjoy updating people about their lives......who enjoys blogging or micro blogging (like instaG) ...introduce them immediately
for thos young people who are entrepreneur .....introduce them immediately
for young people who are social butterfly.....tell them you will get back to them when Appics is ready....let them ask you if they are further curious
for adults, and older people who are investors....tell them that Steem can become an investment, or speculation (for traders)
.....let each person find their place of comfort and place of interest, only a thirsty horse will drink at the river
Lol, I remember telling my sister one day.
how you heard about Steemit? I asked her.
No, what is t, she asked back and I went ahead to tell her all I knew about Steemit. It was quite tedious as I had to answer a lot of questions but she ended up joining the platform and I am happy about that.
