Steemit is not just a platform whereby you just post and expect the dollar($) to start counting 1,2,3,4,5........). No you really need some hardwork.
Now let me give you some breakthrough that will enable you earn if lucky you can earn more than just what you expected like your target ($100)
Let start looking at it from the instance of:
* How you start steemit:
Based on how you start with your steemit account, even if you know people that will help you steemit grow that doesnt signify that you have known everyone because the steemit platform is a large one akk round the world. Your earning should start by let people know that you have arrived in steemit. You should first of all read posts on steemit and try to give some point with your comments and upvote. People will notice your contribution and follow you. (Minnows will follow, experts on steemit will follow, influencial people on steemit will follow you and more people) with that it will be as if you are creating more and more customers for your self in the perspective of business. So with this any drop of your post (quality) those calibres of people like i mention will upvote and also contribute to your post. So your post keep earning and earning. If possible you might even surpass your target($100)..
*Your introductory post:
This is an aspect that will make you earn more. I am sure that if you read intro post 70% of those posts always past the upvote of ($1.00). That will be reminding you that they are people out there which their upvote is up for million. If each person who upvoted your intro post has voting power of ($1.50) each, now imaging you have people about 30 with that upvote weight or more. You might even surpass your target.
So what am i trying to insulnate. I am trying to tell you that your introduction post (quality) matters a lot, if you can try to have a very good quality of introduction post that will pass message to people and also touch their emotion. I bet you they will follow you and love to always read your post. They will upvote and your earn more and more. You might even earn past your target ($100).
Your post can determine your earnings. Since you are the person targeting ($100). That is left to how you put down your post such as its
*Free from plagiariasm
*Benefit to people
* How seen by people (like i said this is based on your followers and how they also resteem your post)
* Grammatically okay and understandable.
* and many more....
I bet you if your post have all this mentioned you will reach your target ($100) and even surpass it.
* Your reputation: like you know in a society for someone to be respected it depends on his or her reputation, the same applies to steemit. If you are wanting to meet your target ($100) and even surpass it. Your reputation on steemit mostly matters too.
*and lastly, another way is of paying bots to perform (resteem, upvotes) but for me it is not advisable. All you need is hardwork.
Conclusively, the idea of you making the targeted amount ($100) on steemit is not by anything else than procedures mentioned, no trick, no fraud and nothing else than following procedures and protocols been mentioned by me and also other people who will give you more answers.
Thanks for reading!!
According to steemnow.com's upvote calculator currently to get an upvote worth $100 USD you need a whale to upvote you that has 1,652,300 SP with 100% voting power and a 100% vote weight. Off the top of my head the only one I can think of that can do that for you is @ned.
As much as I'd love to say "deliver exceptional content" , realistically speaking this doesn't really always happen..
The easiest way to get a $100 upvote on Steem and one that will not cost you anything is just simply to befriend people. People who have a lot of Steem Power. People whose total accumulated SP combined will be 1.7 million.
A Full vote for an account with 1.7 million SP with the current Steem Price is around $103.
Of course no whale will just simply give you this much, friend or not friends. And that is why people have to rely on bidbots to boost their post above $100+ to get a spot on the Trending section. For a list of popular bidbots, do check here: https://steembottracker.com/ .
Using SmartSteem's BidBot Estimate Payout Calculator:
You will need around 93 SBD for a $100 upvote
Or 107 Steem with the current SBD/STEEM market price.
The user who said that you can only get upvotes through paid services is incorrect. Yes, it is difficult to organically get a nice post payout- but it is very possible. $100 is a LARGE goal, but step by step you can get there.
The absolute most important thing you need to do in order to get more active followers is be active yourself. It comes around full circle. But it takes a long time. I've been on the platform for about 8 months, at times I have been very active and at times very inactive. I have definitely noticed that during times that I have been very active my posts receive more attention. Even if you gain a good amount of followers you can't always expect them to just find your post in their feed. Make connections and engage with them. If you are actively engaging with people they will most likely at one point or another stop by your page.
Another important thing to do is write quality posts. This by no means guarantees that people will find your post but the people that do will be more likely to vote on it. It also increases the probability that you might get hit with a Curie trail, or something similar, which is one of the absolutely most beneficial ways to gain post exposure. For instance, I spend a lot of time on my posts and have received a few Curie votes. One of my movie reviews got enough attention from the Curie trail to end up at the top of the horror trending page, and by the time the payout period was up, the post was up to $70+ (by far the biggest payout I've ever had).
Like I said before though, that is not guaranteed. I spend just as much time on all of my posts, and my most recent few have landed around a few $ worth of STU.
So, really, it's about commitment and persistence. Platform activity is huge in your growth, and you can't let discouragement get the best of you. Keep working on it, keep posting, keep engaging, and slowly, over time, hopefully we can all reach a new height. Keep it up!!
You cant get upvotes worth $100, no matter how good you have written.
The only possible way to get upvotes is through piad bid bots.
