If you want to be noticed then you need to go out and socialise! Follow people, comment on their posts, rinse, and repeat.
And there it is...The basic road map to success here, or at the very least gaining some exposure to help drive towards success. (Yes, I know success is many varied things depending on who is considering it.)
I'm not sure why, maybe the feeling of entitlement the world seems to have these days, but people seem unwilling to put some hard-yards in, preferring the I'm here and deserve big rewards method. Reward for effort doesn't seem to have much value for people...Reward for doing bugger all is much more attractive.
Outbound engagement, with relevance and validity, is a huge factor in my mind. I do the #weekend-engagement topic on Friday's to give people somewhere to engage with others, a fun environment, and many do, but very rarely do totally new people come along. I even pay hive directly to people there for commenting, just for a comment, and yet...No newbies. Maybe I need to up the ante and offerr 5,000 hive for each comment...That might match the reward for no effort ethos. (Not going to happen people.)
But I digress...Engagement is important; Why else would long-standing accounts who go reasonably well on the blockchain work so hard to promote it if it wasn't?
I'm a relative nobody here and that's ok, it allows me to do my thing, post what I wish with impunity and to simply have fun...But here's my tips for newbies...
Post with passion, personality and effort; Engage on other people's posts with relevance and interest, and keep doing so after the first comment, don't just drop one and think you're best mates. Be personable, don't fall into the habit of thinking you're the smartest person in the room (you most probably are not) and be respectful. Use communities, not just the ones where you think a whale may lurk waiting patiently for you to arrive, drop a shit post and then vote you at 100%. Show consistency and be patient, your account will grow in time. When you're done doing all of that...Do it all again, and again.
And I'm spent...Lol
That's all I got.
