QUALITY ENGAGEMENT Vs. QUALITY CONTENTS Vs. GAINING VISIBILITY ON HIVE

20220410_181947_0001.png

From my conversations with some newbies these past few days, it has given me the inspiration to write on this topic. First I need you to think and analyze something;

๐’ฒ๐’ฝ๐‘’๐“ƒ ๐“Ž๐‘œ๐“Š ๐‘œ๐“…๐‘’๐“ƒ ๐’ถ ๐’ด๐‘œ๐“Š๐“‰๐“Š๐’ท๐‘’ ๐’ถ๐’ธ๐’ธ๐‘œ๐“Š๐“ƒ๐“‰, ๐‘œ๐“‡ ๐’ถ๐“ƒ ๐’พ๐“ƒ๐“ˆ๐“‰๐’ถ๐‘”๐“‡๐’ถ๐“‚ ๐’ถ๐’ธ๐’ธ๐‘œ๐“Š๐“ƒ๐“‰, ๐’น๐‘œ ๐“Ž๐‘œ๐“Š ๐’พ๐“ƒ๐“ˆ๐“‰๐’ถ๐“ƒ๐“‰๐“๐“Ž ๐‘”๐‘’๐“‰ ๐“๐‘œ๐“‰s ๐‘œ๐’ป ๐“๐’พ๐“€๐‘’๐“ˆ ๐’ถ๐“ƒ๐’น ๐’ป๐‘œ๐“๐“๐‘œ๐“Œs ๐’ถ๐’ป๐“‰๐‘’๐“‡ ๐“‡๐‘’๐’ธ๐‘’๐“ƒ๐“‰๐“๐“Ž ๐’ฟ๐‘œ๐’พ๐“ƒ๐’พ๐“ƒ๐‘” ๐“‰๐’ฝ๐‘’ ๐“…๐“๐’ถ๐“‰๐’ป๐‘œ๐“‡๐“‚?

I know you know the answer to this already. In these platforms, we all need to work to get those likes and follows we want and the same goes for hive. The key to achieving these is by what my title says: Quality Engagement Vs. Quality Posting.

The issue newbies are facing at the moment is; What amount of energy should they put in either engagement and posting? Most of them would chose to post everyday because that is the only way they can make enough rewards and thereby focus less on engaging or don't put enough effort into relating and socializing with other people.

Why do you think Quality Posts Get Good Votes?

This is another question I have to ask, is it just about the post being quality that made it attract the attention and vote it gets. To personally answer this question, I would ask another question:

If you post a quality skit (video) on a newly opened social media account i.e. Instagram, Does it get likes and comments from a lot of people at that instance

The worst is when it comes to Youtube, it is tough to make it there even though your videos are very quality. I can bet there are a lot of quality contents and videos on youtube with very less visibility, and low attention. The ones you get to even see on search results are ones in which their accounts are grown and made.

So we can therefore settle that quality posts alone is not enough to get your posts all the votes it needs. then I guess you must be asking yourself: What is missing? what is needed to get those votes?

What is missing is you BUILDING your VISIBILITY. Making the best quality posts on Hive doesn't mean you would get the highest reward on Hive. I would say to you that having a SUPERB Quality post with Low visibility can get you a Reward Payout of less than $1. THAT'S THE TRUTH!!!

SO DON'T FOCUS ON POSTING ALONE โ—โ—โ—

It's a total waste of time, stress and content, if you spend it on posting everyday on Hive and yet you struggle with visibility and engaging with other authors. Even me! I don't post everyday and it has its reasons and why is that?

Making a Quality Content alone, requires time and effort put into it and not even adding up going about socializing on Hive and engaging with people. So ask your self this question?

๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ‡จโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ฆโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ณโ€Œ ๐Ÿ‡พโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ดโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡บโ€Œ ๐Ÿ‡ฐโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ชโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ชโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ตโ€Œ ๐Ÿ‡พโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ดโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡บโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ทโ€Œ ๐Ÿ‡จโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ดโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ณโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡นโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ชโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ณโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡นโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ธโ€Œ ๐Ÿ‡ถโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡บโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ฆโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ฑโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ฎโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡นโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡พโ€Œ ๐Ÿ‡งโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡พโ€Œ ๐Ÿ‡ตโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ดโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ธโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡นโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ฎโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ณโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ฌโ€Œ ๐Ÿ‡ชโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ปโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ชโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ทโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡พโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ฉโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡ฆโ€Œ๐Ÿ‡พโ€Œ?๐Ÿ”ฑ

This is one thing I have always asked myself even though I knew I had sure auto-vote on my account and even manual voting from curator friends because posting everyday with subpar quality content is not something to be comfortable with though it is tempting. At some point you might feel so low in life and want to share your mind and thoughts alone but how much can you present it to retain its quality.

Now, from the point I have gotten to, you must be asking yourself what makes a post quality?

๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ WHAT MAKES A QUALITY POST?๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ

To every curator, the quality put in a post is relative. The standard of a person can never be the same to that of another, so as we have different likes and dislikes. It is good to know that the general idea of a Quality Content is;

How much effort is placed and how the content add value to its Audience

This is the general idea of a quality content and what curators are in search of, but yet I repeat: Quality minus Visibility = Zero (Wasted Effort), especially when you are the type that post everyday on the chain.

untitled.gif

I am sure that I can guess the question you have in your mind right now. And this is it below ๐Ÿ‘‡

How do I gain Visibility?

๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ GAINING VISIBILITY ON HIVE ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ

You would agree with me that gaining visibility on any social media is a very tough one to do. Most especially when it comes to Instagram and Youtube, but do you know it is far more easier on Hive than you think.

To not get me wrong, I do not say it is easy to get visibility on Hive but in term of relation to other social media platforms, it is easier when compared to being on Hive. If you disagree, then:

You would need to google on the requirements you need to attain before you start making money on Youtube. You also need to check on how much level of influence you need to have gotten to start being paid for advertisement on Instagram.

But on Hive, in first intro post we see people cashing out $5 plus then how much more can they make in their remaining posts if they follow the right steps to gaining visibility while posting quality contents.

The first step in gaining visibility on Hive is:

  • Knowing Your Type of Content: As one of my teachers on Hive always say: Not everybody is a blogger but everyone has something to offer. These words are true on Hive. it is not everyone who comes here that are bloggers and great at writing but yet, we all have something we do, we have hobbies, we have something of value that we can showcase on the chain. It could be: Singing, Dancing, Sports, Art, Comedy or anything. So far it is a skill or an hobby it is something you can offer.
  • Knowing the Best Community for your type of Content: Communities was designed to build visibility to authors on Hive most especially when it comes to niche related topics. Publishing in a community helps in putting your content in place to the right type of audience who would love to consume your content. But yet, Publishing in a community is not enough to attain the visibility you need; Knowing how active the community is matters as well.

    There are many communities on Hive that are related and almost of the same niche, it is best to publish in the one which you find most active in terms of engagement, rewards and community activities.

    Doing this inclusively contributes to giving you the visibility that you deserve.

  • How well are you engaged in the Community you Publish In?: Have you asked yourself this question, are you engaged enough in community activities like; contests, and engaging with other authors in the community through comments? All these matters in getting you known by moderators of the community. If you post often in the community or most importantly, you interact well with others in the community, you would get noticed and hence visibility is achieved.

  • Explore Communities and Do not keep your balls in one Basket: As much as you have gained visibility in a community does not mean that you should think you have finally arrived. There are over a hundred communities on Hive, find the active ones and the ones you know you can try out.

    It is easy to get comfortable in a particular community most especially when that is the only place your content is appreciated the most. I get the feeling and I have felt it too, but truth be told; where you think that is most favorable for you, there is always some place better! Then keep exploring...

Yeah, an Adventure! Take it as an adventure, like the Captain of a pirate ship constantly in search of a map that locates an hidden treasure. There are always more Islands with greater treasures to find.

  • Are you using the right tags involved: Just like twitter, hash tags are like topics related to your post but it is more than that on Hive. Tags can link you between community tribes without having to post the same content again in those communities.

    We have tribes like the #proofofbrain #leofinance and the others which might be related to what ever content we make. Using these tags appropriately would let your content be featured in the community frontend. That way, visibility is attained but does it still ends there?

untitled.gif
Powered by Tenor

No, your engagement in those tribes you link to your post matters as well. Though the quality of your post matters but having good engagement in those tribes as well brings added advantage.

I know we cannot be everywhere at the same time, so I have provided options on ways on how to bring visibility to your content. You should know that when you fall sick, and you take a medicine to cure your illness, the medicine does not work immediately after you use it, you give it time to process. The same thing goes to these tips; you don't expect trying it only once for you to gain visibility on your post. You have to be consistent with it and most importantly, TRUST THE PROCESS!!!

untitled.gif
Powered by Tenor

  • Are you writing on what is trending in that Community?: One of the things I have gotten to notice is writing about topics that are trending in a community; this can actually get your post noticed. This is very common in the Leofinance Community.

    Of recent, you would know that PolyCub has been trending in the community and posts about PolyCub have been receiving good upvotes. This is very similar to partaking in community activities as mentioned earlier; When you see a topic trending in a community, get to see what it is about and share your thoughts about it too.

NOTE: All these would be of no use if you don't go about engaging on related posts on such topics

๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ QUALITY ENGAGEMENT ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ

I know you must have been hearing engagement from the beginning of this article to this very point and you may be thinking, what exactly is this engagement we have been talking about. It is simply just about socializing with others on the chain and building relationships. Yes, you cannot be friends with everybody but yet you can be known by everybody ๐Ÿ˜…; Engagement does that trick.

What makes your engagement quality is when it is genuine and is interactive; Not just a very short comment that looks spam-my and does not relate to what the author talks about. Your form of engagement (comment) also determines your relationship with the author: there are some words that someone who is close would understand compared to someone who is not close to you.

I read a post from someone saying:

Why is there focus on Engagement and Quality is Ignored?

The truth is on Hive, Quality is not ignored and the reason why there is a lot of focus on engagement is that it brings out your quality content to those who would appreciate it.

A simple example to this scenario is just like; An artist who makes beautiful art works and wants to be paid, be given commissioned art works but yet doesn't take his artworks out to the public to see it, doesn't speak to people to check out his artworks and doesn't interact at all but yet says since he makes beautiful artwork, people should naturally come to patronize him.

Life doesn't work that way, having a talent or skill is not enough to make it for you but reaching out to people, making friends and building an audience. That is why I said earlier in this post that Quality without Visibility or Engagement is Zero.

untitled.gif

It is just the bitter truth, and Hive works like the way Life works as well. You cannot compare yourself with others who receive more votes with a less quality post than yours. You don't know what contact or connect they have built along the way.

You should not feel entitled to vote from people either, but yet be grateful if we get them. Feeling entitled brings laziness to work and seeing the clearer picture of why engagement matters.

I believe I have taken a lot of time to discuss on various topics that is important to the growth of everyone (newbies especially) on Hive including me, and I hope this message would come helpful to you.
Would appreciate your reblog and comments. Thank you!

Thanks for sharing this post, my friend.

For a while, I did not understand this part of socializing, not so much the commitment, but to making community, to integrate and creating those bonds that unite us by the things we have in common, the things we like.

I think you are very clear with the example of the great artist, if he does not create bonds of friendship or does not make himself known, he will never be able to sell any work.

At the initial most will not understand this pitfall and it' is the reason most of the awesome writters left the platform because they weren't properly oriented on this part... Imagine creating your most quality content and 3days later you're just seeing 0.08 as reward.

My!

This post says it all..a lot of people are ignorant of these facts that's why they complain about not having enough votes or why their quality content didn't get upvoted.
I guess everything has a strategy and like you said hive's own is quite easy and straight forward (even if it takes a lot of discipline)..
Visibility is the order of the day and it can only been achieved through engagements..I can't can't count the amount of followers I've gotten through engagements talk more of connections. I know of a number of authors who have gained their way to the top quite easily through engagements.

I know that lack of votes can also kill your spirit but like you compared with other social media accounts, it takes time.. I'm certainly ready to put in all the effort and through the help of people like you and lot more others I see things becoming better.

I've never really been a fan of posting everyday but then if you have the luxury of auto votes and you know you need that money... milking all that gains wouldn't be a bad idea..posting everyday then wouldn't be a bad idea. Doesn't mean you shouldn't rest when you need to or feel blank..

This post is quite helpful..all Newbies should see and learn.. but then I can relate which some who don't have enough RC to get anywhere..like my bro @nelson-george , he's been really trying to grow his HP to up his engagement game.. they're a lot more like him..it can be hard then.. but I'm glad the hivelearners are making things a lot easier.

Great post โค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Now this is what I call a quality engagement.. depicts you have much understanding on what was given and sharing your thoughts as well.

I guess everything has a strategy and like you said hive's own is quite easy and straight forward (even if it takes a lot of discipline)

Sincerely, it's straight forward. And discipline is what that matters the most. Although I know how hard it can be to be consistent on a thing, is never easy unless we are determined to.

I can't can't count the amount of followers I've gotten through engagements talk more of connections. I know of a number of authors who have gained their way to the top quite easily through engagements.

Exactly visibility can be achieved through engagement. Last two years, I was superb active engaging on Hive compared to how I do now (I now spend more time mentoring newbies than being on the chain itself). I got to understand this tips and how it helped me.

Imagine making up to 30 followers in a week and close to 100 a month. Engaging with authors did that especially within communities.

I know that lack of votes can also kill your spirit but like you compared with other social media accounts, it takes time.. I'm certainly ready to put in all the effort and through the help of people like you and lot more others I see things becoming better.

Yeah I know right. Just keep doing what you do and trust the process. You already have us for questions.

I've never really been a fan of posting everyday but then if you have the luxury of auto votes and you know you need that money... milking all that gains wouldn't be a bad idea..posting everyday then wouldn't be a bad idea. Doesn't mean you shouldn't rest when you need to or feel blank..

The thing about posting everyday is, how much of a quality can you relay your content and also can you keep up engaging with your audience and people from other communities.

I cannot do that if I post everyday that's why I don't. I find the time to maintain a balance. Some days to engage and others prepare for my posts.

I make videos and mostly guitar covers. I take time to rehearse them and not rush it so I can keep to quality.

This post is quite helpful..all Newbies should see and learn.. but then I can relate which some who don't have enough RC to get anywhere.

I am glad that this post is helpful. It took me two and a half days to write this. I took lots of breaks, because writing all this in one sitting would be a lot of stress on my head and would harm my other activities. So it's definitely not a waste of my time.

my bro @nelson-george , he's been really trying to grow his HP to up his engagement game.. they're a lot more like him..it can be hard then.. but I'm glad the hivelearners are making things a lot easier.

No problem, I would delegate to your bro. I have a pretty number of Newbies I have given delegations, some I know personally and many I don't. Doing this because I know how frustrating error from having low resource credits can be.

Thanks for taking your time to make this wonderful comment @chincoculbert .

A very good student here. I have taken a cue from you now.
One thing that I think helps with engaging well is actually being genuine, free, open and uninhibited by popular opinion. I, myself, am trying to up my game with it. I truly feel glad to see people pour their hearts (one of the reasons I am glued to HIVE now) into their work and share it with the world. It in turn encourages me to do the same.
For the issues like low RC, I have had that experience today. I would have felt instantly discouraged if it had not been for great mentors like @starstrings01 come through for me. I am able to fire on because we have great people like him on this platform. ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿ™‡

Es cierto que la calidad y la cantidad ayudan a la visibilidad. Creo que muchos de los nuevos, me incluyo por que soy un novato con algunos meses jugando Splinterlands y muchas veces plublicando contenido de baja calidad que no me convencen y definitivamente no me ayudan, cuando ingrese a esta comunidad las primeras veces me sentรญ un poco abrumado por no comprender el mundo de la criptografรญa, que de hecho sigo sin entenderlo constantemente, pero imagino que a muchos nos pasarรก lo mismo, por no decir a todos. Estoy en esa transiciรณn de mejorar mi contenido y expandirme, como blogger y como miembro de esta comunidad, es difรญcil introducirse en el mundo virtual cuando uno estรก muy apegado a sus proyectos personales, estoy empezando a tomar en serio esto y creo que tu publicaciรณn no se encuentra en mi inicio por simple casualidad, mientras tanto me mantendrรฉ intentando apoyar y mejorar mi contenido, lo mรกs importante es que has ganado un seguidor mรกs, y un interesado en integrar tu guรญa de ayuda.

Yeah, it is difficult to enter the virtual world when you run many projects in the physical. I am also in many projects in my real life at the same time, I try to keep a balance but truth is I sacrifice a lot of my sleep time to keep balance between my virtual world and real life.

You need to read this post, then you get to know all the stuffs I am involved in.

It is such a comprehensive guide you have provided here @starstrings01. Bravo.....!

If I have to summarise it I would say "Quality engagement comes before quality posting. Engage as much as you can."

You have said it right the posting your own content feels tempting. It happens to me. I have limited time to spend on Hive. I can either engage or post. I have been struggling to increase engagement, yet I am not vey much successful. I feel like if I didn't post in a certain topic, I would lose all my thoughts about it and won't be able to write it again. However, I have decided to write lesser so that I can consume my time in engagement. After all, what is the worth of writing when there is no one to read it.

The truth is Hive is much more about quality relations than about quality writing. And the relationships are built only by engagement. Even if you are an average writer but you have goy people who like you because you always visit, read and respond to their content, you would get higher upvotes.

Thanks for such a wonderful guide ๐ŸŒท

"Quality engagement comes before quality posting. Engage as much as you can."

Exactly the point of this post!

what is the worth of writing when there is no one to read it.

I have thought about this statement so many times. And it's something worth asking oneself.

The truth is Hive is much more about quality relations than about quality writing. And the relationships are built only by engagement.

It's not just about Hive alone, but above life itself. Relationships and connections matters to be successful in life.

Even if you are an average writer but you have goy people who like you because you always visit, read and respond to their content, you would get higher upvotes.

There is no lie in this. This is blunt truth!

Thanks for your wonderful comment @amberkashif.

I have to agree that engagement is definitely something that I would never refuse. The dollar value of the post is just a number and it doesn't really mean people care that much. The visibility of the user is definitely something that people need to work on and I actually think Listnerds is a great way to make your post visible.

Listnerds is a blockchain mailer made by the people in the CTP community. There are a lot of people from Hive over there so they tend to drop by people's posts quite often (if you link it) and a few of them will even drop comments. On top of that, you can even earn some crypto for reading and upvoting mail there.

You've said it all, and you've covered the most vital aspect of Hive success.

Many newbies underestimate the power of engagement; yet, there is more to it... Engagement has massive benefits, including the opportunity to meet new people from other parts of the world and the ability to quickly learn about their culture and language. You can also establish a reciprocal friendship, which has several advantages.


I remembered my early days on Hive, you encouraged me to engage with others; in fact, you told me to comment on at least five posts before publishing my own, and another five afterward.... This aided my success on Hive and helped me improve....

The fact is that I'm not a great commenter; whenever I read an author's piece, I endeavor to relate to it, look for a key point or phrase, and then ask questions or inquire about it... This will turn into a discussion in the comments section, and that's how I roll...

"How well are you engaged in the Community you Publish In?" I'd like to add a few things to your statement, Engaging with the community you publish in is very critical; engaging with the admins and moderators, and interacting with the other members of the community has a long way to go aside from upvotes, and you may be offered a role as a curator or moderator depending on how well you have built the relationship.

Finally, engaging with the tribal community can also earn you tips; certain authors enjoy tipping commenters, and I've received a small amount of tribaltokens as a result of my contributions.


I like how you used gifs in your post; it adds some creativity to the content and insures that people are not bored while reading.

This is an excellent piece for newbies as well as some struggling older members; in fact, it is beneficial to all Hiveans on the chain

Thank you very much for sharing, and may God continue to bless you!

I am glad that you took my advices and saw the reasons why I have emphasis to engaging with other authors.

I endeavor to relate to it, look for a key point or phrase, and then ask questions or inquire about it

Exactly, asking questions about a post shows your interest in knowing what the author is saying. The author would be glad to reply to your comment and answer your questions.

Engaging with the community you publish in is very critical; engaging with the admins and moderators, and interacting with the other members of the community has a long way to go aside from upvotes, and you may be offered a role as a curator or moderator depending on how well you have built the relationship.

This is very true...

Also about my GIFs, I noticed my post was getting too long and I never something to make it lively and interesting. So I resulted to sing GIFs.

I am glad this piece is as beneficial as you have mentioned it.

Thank you very much for this wonderful comment @mistural

Yes it is so true how valuable engagement really is... I noticed it the few times I first tried it and to my greatest surprise I got people like THEYCALLMEDAN to upvote my content

But honestly speaking vast majority of us are too lazy to read people's contents in order to engage, I first fell short of that till I asked myself WHAT IF OTHERS ARE ALSO TOO LAZY TO READ MINE? How will I get supports

And that's when I started a better relationship building and increased my engagement... I do hope to do more... Thanks for the info you did an awesome job ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡

Hmmmmmm, to start with; I must commend you for the big effort you put down in creating this content. The elaborate answers to newbies frequent questions and the creative GIFs....this is great! I can't thank you enough for all your useful contents so far, it has motivated me alot and kept me going in this blockchain.

Yes, you cannot be friends with everybody but yet you can be known by everybody ๐Ÿ˜…; Engagement does that trick.

I really understand this; that's the power of engagement .

Before now, I used to think that quality contents are those content that can add value to the readers and so should attract upvotes. Now the whole thing is becoming more clearer to me . I have also discovered that each time I engage much in a community , I get a reasonable votes through my comment and some followers too.

Like you said, building one's account here in hive is much easier than other social media , this is so true and from every indication , quality engagement do the tricks.

No wonder I see some posts atimes not necessarily with much effort but they still get a very high upvotes...I understand this , probably due to their rate of engagements and friends they have build on the blockchain .

I got numerous value reading this article , thank you๐Ÿ’ช

Indeed this information was helpful and I grabbed a lot of things which I will be asking some questions Here so please get ready @starstrings01
You said that exploring in other communities is not a bad idea which you made it easy saying by using tags we appear at the frontend on the community post. Now my real question is: Can we also engage peoples post in other communities? And again you said something about engaging peoples post but no making it look like a Spam. I don't think given a short note on someone post should be seen as spam what if the person now decided to engage someones post with the intention of making long and it is not making sense? Am not saying you are not making a point in all these but I need you to answer thses questions.

Yes, why not?.. you can engage in any community.

Talking about engaging with people. Comment like: nice post, you did well, I like your post and other non interactive comments are spams.

Comments doesn't have to be necessarily long but needs to be something that is interactive and gives value back to the author. Also it has to be meaningful and makes sense to the author.

You've done justice to this topic. Thank you for addressing it. Many newbies need to know this.

Just like every other social media platform, you have to communicate with people. Let people know you exist. It's not just about making posts. You have to get more eyes to see your post.

Just like in business, you put a product up for sale but you are not making any sale, why is that, one of the causes is because you have very limited eyes seeing your product. So all you have to do is run crazy ads, let your product be what they see when they turn left and right.

The same thing applies to hive, the difference is that the ad you are running here is by engaging with people. You are advertising yourself in other people's comment sections.

When a person comments on my post, I subconsciously click on their profile to see more of their works. Especially if the person leaves a reasonable, valuable, or encouraging comment.

On LinkedIn, whenever I engage in
person's comment section few minutes/hours later I will receive notifications that so so person viewed your profile. So somehow it is like a subconscious act for a person to want to know more about you after viewing your comment.

So, there is power in meaningful engagement.

I do love the gifs you made use of, it is much better than images sef.

This is well said.
Just like life itself, everything takes a gradual process, even being able to post daily takes a gradual process, same as engaging and gaining visibility.

In other to gain visibility, engagement is important.

We are getting paid here so it's our duty as hivers to work if we want to earn.

Posting every day without engaging with others on the chain is sure a waste of time, apart from the fact that there won't be many rewards on the post, not having people to come to visit your post and give their feedback and opinion on the post is discouraging in a way.

The only way to truly enjoy the platform is to have a connection with the users on the chain and this can be established by making genuine engagement and quality posting.

Thanks for sharing this piece.

When one user referred to you as an old man in his post, I couldn't agree less. It's not every day we see a 2000+ words post here on Hive with everything on point! With memes to spice up the reading experience!

I've seen my role model.

You have summed up my recent observations of the blockchain in one beautiful post. Honestly, engagement is key, and quality engagement, sometimes everyone will act as if they didn't notice, but there is no harm in being that uninvited guest here on Hive, everything is open, so, no secret community.

Also, the efforts must be paired with time, I am guilty of this, but honestly, we should learn to wait, it is not easy to be patient, but time has a very huge role to play in any form of growth.

Also, sometimes, we may look at some people, and use our content to judge theirs, and conclude that something is unfair, they do not write long posts and may make up to 4 short posts per day, but they receive votes, steady. I think in this case, a lot of questions need to be asked and directed to ourselves. We may need to consider the length of time the person has been on the chain and the connections he/she has created.

Everything just boils down to quality: quality time, engagements, posts and connections.

Thanks for sharing! Gracias

Lol, I appreciate these comments. Thank you. The post two me two and a half days to sum up. Had to find breaks from my busy schedules to write this post as doing it in one sitting is quite impossible.

Also, the efforts must be paired with time, I am guilty of this, but honestly, we should learn to wait, it is not easy to be patient, but time has a very huge role to play in any form of growth.

This is so true. For me it took me a lot of crazy engagement before knowing people I know and most of them are not even from direct engagement. The people you know can connect you to other people as well.

Mine took me over 2 years of my stay on Hive to get to understand this. Imagine how that frustrating my first 2 years on Hive had been. Even after gotten to understand all this, it took almost a year to start seeing massive results from my engagement.

We may need to consider the length of time the person has been on the chain and the connections he/she has created.

This is the truth though. More time on the chain, more chance of connections they must have built.

@starstrings01 you have said it all. We came in with the mentality of posting everyday and posting quality contents too. I like what you said about exploring in other communities. I tried exploring in the leofinance community and truth be told, I struggle to meet up in that frontend. I guess its because that's not my calling.๐Ÿ˜‚.
Engaging does the trick but just like you said, it may not come immediately. I told myself that I will be engaging and post less for a period I have set for myself. That is because I want to create enough awareness in other communities first.
So what I got from your post is,

  1. Engagement
  2. Engagement
  3. Engagement
    Because if you post a quality content, who will come and give you the upvote you want when they don't know you?

@hivelearners have been helpful to me. I have learnt a lot I need to grow in this community.

Time your posting and make it balance up with engagement. Because keeping up with creating your contents would make your followers know you are active.

Yeah, working with hive learners has helped me enough to support more newbies on Hive. I only just need to find ways to go across countries as well.

Saying the longer I wait to kill myself the more people will suffer.


They are reckless and should have shown the proper media what they had before taking me hostage for 5 years. I know there are many in prison that dont deserve to be there because of this. Your stay in prison will not be fun @battleaxe and friends. People are going to want you dead when they find out what you did. I hope you die a slow painful death. You sick mother fuckers.

Its a terrorist act on American soil while some say its not real or Im a mental case. Many know its real. This is an ignored detrimental to humanity domestic and foreign threat. Ask informed soldiers in the American military what their oath is and tell them about the day you asked me why. Nobody has I guess. Maybe someone told ill informed soldiers they cant protect America from military leaders in control with ill intent. How do we protect locked up soldiers from telling the truth?

Oh my! This is just so educative and explanatory enough. What Iโ€™ve learnt in this post and obviously the message passing across is that quality engagement brings about gaining visibility. Itโ€™s not all about posting contents all the time.

Truth be told, when I first got started on hive, I thought itโ€™s about posting content (quality) that matters but thanks to those that brought me on board, @temibot, @monioluwa and @starstrings01 inclusive made me to know that I need to engage on peopleโ€™s post, to build up good relationship.

And now with this I read now, I can liken it to this factor in marketing, the KLT factor. (Know, Like and Trust). Meaning in simple term here that, I need to know more people (engaging), building good relationship rapport (Like) and then trusting me enough to give out quality content (Trust).

@starstrings01 I appreciate your efforts in giving out this value to the newbies on hive, thereby making us have a clearer understanding of how things work here. I found this helpful at this time and will start building on it.

But, I will like to ask a question before I go, in a case where I tend to follow people that have gained their visibility here and they are yet to follow back or something that looks like they are not going to follow back. What should be done in that case?

Beautiful question here!

Truth is, them not following now do not mean they would never follow you. Is just that they have not seen something of value you have to offer them or have not built a relationship with them.

Why would an Influencer want to follow back at someone on Social Media?

There are two answers to that question

  • The person has a content that gives Value

  • or The person has built a relationship by constant engagement with the influencer.

I have met people on the chain that it took me months of constant engaging on their posts before they considered following back. It was not easy but they would finally when you start making "Interactive Engagement" with them on their posts. Because no how they would be forced to check out on your profile.

When I newly joined Hive, I barely engaged and was all about posting,I couldn't understand why my posts weren't doing so well despite how much time and energy I put into making them.

I'm not quite where I want to be in terms of engagement, but I'm making progress.

You have said everything we all need and while reading, I can relate to it too because I wasnยดt that active on hive especially posting in communities that arenยดt active but when I made enquiry, I was told many things and for some months now, I have seen the difference and changes. Posting in the right communities matters on this platform, likewise putting more efforts to engagement. Without these tricks and others, one will just keep working and itยดs a waste.

Wow, buddy.

Amm, I'm glad to see that I follow these instructions instinctively.

I arrived at Hive in January of that year.

I believe that personal interest counts a lot when we talk about evolution.
I'm lucky to have friends who gave me important tips. About how the ecosystem works and good ways to behave around here.

If you look at my blog, I wrote in January, February, March Could not write but I returned now in April. I'm working on creating good friendship relationships.

In that short time I got great support in the SkateHive community and now I'm working on projects and helping bring the Music Hive community to Peakd.
I am helping to manage some accounts for large Brazilian channels. I learned a lot about wallet investments. And I'm very anxious to delegate to communities.

Doing the mentioned work. I was exploring the communities when I found this one. One of the best, reference when it comes to studying and learning important information.

I invite everyone to talk on Discord!

  • Again I repeat the importance of being interested. You have to socialize, get to know people. Don't just focus on money. connection, that's the key.

Hello @starstrings01 I so much appreciate this wonderful piece here on hive learner's.

I am a kind of person that I do feel lazy to engage on people's post. I think, I will wake up from my sleep and start to do something reasonable.

I wanted to asked, what visibility means on hive but you have explained it to my understanding and I am also satisfied.

We have tribes like the #proofofbrain #leofinance and the others which might be related to what ever content we make. Using these tags appropriately would let your content be featured in the community frontend. That way, visibility is attained but does it still ends there?

I want to asked a question concerning what you have stated here.
Tagging this tribe 'Leofinance' as one of my tags in my post wouldn't I get downvoted if I don't publish content on cryptocurrency or polyCUB?

Thanks for sharing this amazing insight into hive community. As a newbies here this will be a great guide to me and I will also refer to this post. Inorder to buttress your point I've been on YouTube since 2017 and I have not make $1 since with a lot of amazing content but YouTube kept raising the bar. Currently to make money from YouTube you must have 1000 subscriber and 4000 watch hour this is hard to achieve for educational content. Thanks @starstrings01

Thank you so much for sharing this.
Truly, you cannot sell well without building a good reputation for quality and visibility through great engagement. You cannot just drop something and poof you're off, without relating with people, and then expect growth, no nah.
Checking out communities, relating to other creators there and their content too, and reacting goes a long way.
Big things started small. Just trust the process and be consistent.
I will definitely adhere to this golden advice and try to do better.

Wow, thank you so much for investing a lot of time 0and sweat to creating this. It's very helpful and encouraging that hive newcomers won't be lost in oblivion on their arrival because of such hive manuals like this. Other centralised social media platforms are not as privileged as Hive is, to have extensive and well explained guides for newbies. This is a great blessing.

I joined hive a month ago and I can say it wasn't so easy as expected but last week, I really got into the spirit of engagement and I've seen a huge difference and learnt a whole lot too. People want to know that their content meant something to you, they want to know your thoughts about it, yes, there are a lot of quality contents on hive that need audience, it won't hurt to let someone know how important their contents are by engaging with them. Just like the Bible says, he who waters will himself be watered.

Thanks again sir @starstrings01 and all other amazing Hivers who offer great newbie guides like this.

Niceโ€ฆ thanks for such a wonderful comment. I am glad that this guide is helpful to you as a newbie. I made it because there were so many questions on this topic.

there are a lot of quality contents on hive that need audience, it won't hurt to let someone know how important their contents are by engaging with them.

Exactly, I like the fact that you said this. Your quote from the bible is also very right; do to others as so you want others to do unto you.

Of course I will I just wish I have more time everything I do here in hive is chasing time like the other day I wrote for a contest but I wrote it on my 1 hour break time while I was eating and writing at the same time ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ in the end I read the rules wrong so I got disqualified from the contest ๐Ÿคฃ

Yes I saw that and it's really sad you didn't get the chance to re-enter for the contest. Now next time you will have to be more careful when reading the rules of any contest. But I did enjoy reading your post either ways.

No one could have sound it any better than @starstrings01, well said man. In life, in other to attain greatness then you must put in great work. Great content is built from the amount of time put into it. This post was a great read, honestly speaking it's something everyone should read. This post might have been uploaded or shared 4 months ago but it's something that will refresh the mind every single day. Thanks for sharing something this amazing.

Yeah it is! I read it myself sometimes when I need to refuel my own energy. Knowledge is never too old, it is also useful to the writer itself!

That is very true. Even if you are the content creator, sometimes revisiting your content gives you a reminder of what your principles are and what you stand to offer not just to people around but also to yourself. Knowledge is an asset for me, it's always profitable.

Mehn thanks a lot @starstrings01 for this exposition. I really appreciate the amount of thoughtfulness and effort invested in this post. Now I see why you're a moderator. Everything you've said is true. We just lack patience. That's it. This stuff does take time. I'm a newbie on this hive platform. My friends introduced me to this platform that's @merit.ahama and @brightdavid. I engaged a little. I left the platform for a long time, but now I'm back. For me, there's so much I need to learn. I need to familiarize myself with a lot of things as regards the communities and the like. Like you said, it's about creating valuable content and engaging, and I know that these things take time. But as humans, we grow weary sometimes, and that's where things go sideways. Right now, my mindset has shifted as I look forward to really connecting with a reader. Every other benefit comes naturally. I just feel I should write to just one person. only one person is enough, then you keep building on that. It is not easy to write, but developing empathy is really key. I do feel so many persons just need to familiarize themselves with this platform, even as I am trying to get a grasp on it too. One key problem we face, because I do battle with it, is the lack of real empathetic connection. Is it just for the money alone, or do you want to build something special that eventually leads to financial benefits? This question is hard because when you answer it, it tilts you in one direction and the outcome you're going to face is different. Sorry for my long speech. I know it's boring, but thanks for this @starstrings01. I think I'll need some guidance from you and lots of questions to ask as regards this platform. Gracias

Oh, now I totally understand and I am ashamed of my action being judgemental of others receiving up votes more but the post is lesser quality than mine. You are right, they already build their reputation and they are known in the community. I should do the same. I should learn some more, find the topic I am good at and engage to be visible.

Perhaps this is a wall of text but really worth my time. A beginner like me was enlightened by your insights about quality engagement as I reflect on it as genuine interaction.

No matter how quality the posts are if one does not value the power of engagement, surely it would always end up as null. I greatly believe that it is through interaction wherein we get to know everyone, even if naturally, not everyone comes here as a blogger but like what you have said, we do have different interests and we could share it in the best community.

The beginning is always the hardest. We all started with zero but we could always improve every single day through being consistent. Consistency is key while having real connections. It does not matter if one is not born as a blogger for what is more important is the ability to value others and other's work us well.

No one wants to be unappreciated. But surely, if we are learning to value the works of others, surely, we could also be visible by them, and through that way, we could build a connection from a single dot to a series of lines.

And that, posting daily may not be a requirement, but we could always do it regularly so followers would also keep track but, it would always make a great difference to post and interact through meaningful and relevant comments.

Thus, quality post and quality engagement equates excellence each other based on how I understand your content my dear friend, @starstrings01 . It is a matter of how one puts efforts in the community to establish oneself.

Know that this piece of content feels like a gold to me as I have learned a lot form your brilliant insights. I am very glad that I bumped with you today. I am always hungry for learning, and I always treat myself as a beginner. Saved this and I will be reading your other contents as well.

Thank you so much my dear friend. Have a great day and take care.
