How to gain publicity and more followers in any community on HIVE
If by the first few weeks of being on HIVE, you did not wander around looking for answers, then you must have been terribly lucky.
HIVE is such a wide platform with lots of amazing communities. Therefore, finally getting to choose where to belong can take weeks or months. And once you do, you will be faced with the difficulty of gaining attention, authority, upvotes, and more.
You do not have to worry anymore, because right here, and now, you will have a different approach presented to help you gain as many followers as you desire. You already know what it means to have many followers, it means you get to gain lots of attention, and upvotes in the process.
Having more upvotes, means you will be entitled to authors' rewards which by the time you have them all staked, you will be floating around as an authority with so much power in terms of the value of your upvotes.
First things, first. How do you gain the much-needed publicity.?
Go to hive.blog or peakd, and do community research. This should be a community you are interested in, and are willing to contribute your ideas to help it grow.
Look out for those who post frequently on the community or uses the community tags. Follow them.
Check where they are posting from. A lot of persons use different frontend to post. They could use proofofbrain.io, sportstalksocial.io, peakd, stemgeeks.net, etc. So you need to monitor where they are posting from, and where they use to engage with other people on HIVE.
Who are they following on HIVE? Are they people with similar interests or random ones?
Find out what they read, listen, or watch on HIVE or 3speak. Which accounts or communities do they like or follow? Write down everything and do not assume.
Now follow and like everything and everyone they liked, followed, and reblogged.
You can also find the interest of your audience by a simple tag, that is because once you look up a particular tag, it brings up a list of accounts posting with that tag. Find new posts, trending ones, promoted posts, etc around the tag.
Once you follow these accounts, your feeds will be organized and customized to your taste. Every time they post, you will see these posts on your feeds every day.
From here, gaining attention is simple, since your feed has your audience in position, you will just need to read their posts and write relevant and valuable comments about what they talked about or shared.
These include posts that they reblogged. Use the symbol @ to tag them to your comments. They will be notified quickly than if you don't tag them.
You could include personal experiences in your response, it will help you connect with them on a personal level.
Once they reply, and like your comment, write down their names, you will be needing them soon.
Do this for 7 days, and at the end of 7 days, return to the list you made.
You need to show up in the faces of the people on that list, they are your potential followers, and fan base. Show up more often, try to get noticed, for a few weeks, so they get familiar with your name and your profile photo.
How will you do when you have so many content on your feed every day? It will be daunting task to find them quickly, but don’t worry, I have got you covered.
All you need is to employ the assistance of GINABOT.
Now, what the heck is GINABOT? I heard you, and I will answer.
GINA is the acronym for General Instant Notification Automaton and the GINAbot is a bot on discord developed to provide AI solutions for notification.
She is your buddy for automation and notification in diverse areas that might seem daunting for you to keep up with. All you need to do is to give her instructions, and she will follow suit.
To use GINABOT, you need to register and set it up. I am here to take you through everything.
The first thing you need to do is to join the minnow-power server. Click the link below to join, https://discord.gg/aXCGvKCm9B
Register with your username
Go, to the registration channel, and type …reg username without the @
A command will show up, follow through by sending the necessary HIVE token along with the memo given. You will have your account set up and your 0.001HIVE token will be returned to your wallet once you are validated.
Do the necessary settings
Once a link has been given to you, do the settings depending on your needs. These are what you will be getting, so, go ahead set them to your preference.
There are other options, go ahead and tweak it to your needs. I do not want to bombard you with photos.
But remember, why we needed GINABOT in the first place? Yes, to maintain order in your feed.
Remember those names, you wrote down? IT is time to use them.
Add them to the columns provided for new posts. Add their names in each field. And remove anyone you choose to in the future.
Gina will notice you everytime the accounts you provided for her, makes a new a new post. She will tell you and then give you a link. She makes it easy for you to be on top of your games on HIVE.
Now that you are able to exercise a bit of control over the posts you want to find and comment on. Do this for a few weeks, and watch your followers increase.
If you need more followers, you just need to start the process all over again, adding the new names to your Gina setting. You can trek everything as you go. That is because you will be learning what works for you and what does not.
Try not to stay in one zone, be consistent, and the results will be impressive. Have fun while engaging and making money too.
If you have questions regarding this, I will be in the comment box. You are free to share your experience on gaining followers with us as well. Thank you.
Great advice, I used to use GinaBot a lot to search for any skateboarding and longboarding posts. I might have to pick that up again as I stopped after there was some kinda issue with her at once point. So thanks for the reminder about using GinaBot!
Thank goddess, I have someone testifying about the usefulness of GINABOT
I hope you get to use her soon. Thanks for sharing your experience @howweroll
Gina is very good bot to stay notified about what goes on with your account on Hive. I use both GINA and FRIDAY bot.
Anyways about me, I don't really have a peculiar community I am so much involved in. I post randomly and meet up randomly and try to get different taste of content. True, having a peculiar community that you engage more and being noticed by people would definitely give you more followers.
Your advices are good but I don't really recommend often tagging people in the comments session. Instead what I do when I want to stay on track on an author's post is that I place them my favorites feed then I come back to hive in my free time to see and engage in their contents. I change my favorite feed very often, sometimes once in 3 months then I move to another set of guy to engage with. But now, I am not to really active on Hive to stay too engaged in comment but I make sure I engage when I am less busy.
To me, what really give followers is the quality you lay on the blockchain. what or how you add to help other either by contents or by contest or by engagement. These things are the main point/secrets of growing followers and which I have applied along the years. Also, remember to also check out on your followers even though you don't follow them back. I try go through my followers list and check for the active ones through their last post and support their contents even though they make not be my type.
This is a good post man. Right now, is just me taking 1hour of my time to engage, moving from different communities and supporting contents. Stay safe brother!
in a nutshell, he called me a man.....crying
hhahhahhaha....I am a lady @starstrings01
Thank you for such a wonderful contribution, I appreciate
I am glad you agree. But what the heck is the FRIDAY bot? Now, this is my turn to ask, hahhahhahhaa
Sweet...you don't need to tell me, I have always seen how it seems you are everywhere and nowhere. It makes it impossible to follow your track..lol
I appreciate the fact that you agree with this point. You don't know what this means to me...hehhehehe
Well, if putting people on my favorite feed is cool, then, I will have to copy that. I am not someone who likes routine a lot, and I like learning and implementing new ideas. Thanks for sharing this point.
Good call, I must say. It makes you find other persons, so it doesn't look as though you favor a particular set of folks. This exposes you as well. I will copy this as well.
Nothing beats value anywhere. Whatever you give in, is what you get back. And seeing that value is very much appreciated in the blockchain, everyone should be advised to give as much value as they receive on a daily basis.
I am guilty of this one. I need to repent by next Sunday, and try as much as I can to check up on my followers often.....hhehehhehhe
Keep the light burning, sweetie
Thanks. You too. But I am a lady .....smiles
Smile, I am just seeing your profile picture. A female anime. don't mind me.
By the way, I like the way you analyzed my comments and gave me feedback. Do take care!
Hhahahhahaa...I won't mind me
You too, dear
Thanks for sharing. Do u knkw that i nearly quit simply because i wasnt getting upvote. It got a certain extent i waa thinking those voting themself have been friends for ages and do not want to give upvoting for the upcoming once. I will adopt the method you just prescribed probably it will work.
No sweetheart, you should not give up, over here, there is a space for everyone, you just need to find ways to carve out a piece of the space for yourself
I await your feedback, dear
Edit: @starstrings, I asked what a FRIDAY BOT Is, and what does it do? Thank you for responding in advance
