LeoFinance Takes Social Engagement To Levels That Authors Have Never Experienced Before.

in LeoFinance6 months ago


My first post generated a total of 27 comments from 13 unique users. That includes my own replies within the comment section as well. My second post had a total of 18 comments from 10 unique users.

The article I believe has drawn the most attention are my 'How To Earn Crypto From Blogging In 2021' article that was published more than 1 month ago. That article has a total of 66 comments from 15 unique users. 23 of the comments are from "poshbot" that simply states that someone shared your article on Twitter. I published that article for marketing purposes and to increase organic traffic to LeoFinance.io by ranking keywords and with some SEO optimization.

Another article managed to get a total of 33 comments from 10 unique users. Another one had 52 comments from 18 unique users. It is safe to say that I have never experienced this level of engagement on Hive, and it is a long time since I experienced this on Steem.

In fact, the last time I had somewhat 'decent' engagement was 8 months ago. I had 11 comments in total from 6 unique users on one of my articles I published on Hive. It has been more than 2 years since I saw more than 50 comments on an article, prior to LeoFinance, and that article was published on Steem.

It was my "push-people" initiative, where I strived to push people into minnowhood by focusing on specific, hand-picked authors, and donating tokens and/or power directly to the users in an attempt to strengthen the middle class on Steem.

The articles I have published with the most engagement on LeoFinance has been about LeoFinance and more specifically, it has actually been about engagement. Like my article about the Initiative 10 for instance. 52 comments in total from 18 unique users.

That being said, while LeoFinance related content seems to be doing well, perhaps even the best, in terms of token rewards, it has also been giving me the most engagement. While the rewards are wonderful in terms of stake and influence over rewards, engagement gives me motivation, inspiration and encouragement to produce even more content. Tokens aren't as good motivator as engagement to me personally, which is why I've never started to shit-post 10x per day only to self-vote my way 'up the ladder' so to speak.

Unfortunately, my time is limited due to my day job so things aren't always easy.. But I am still trying to find the necessary time I need to be an active Lion.

However, I have been thinking about doing something for the community for a couple of weeks now, and truth to be told, I have always been eager to 'move mountains' and cause ripple effects, so I am going to 'go back to my roots' shortly again and start to strengthen our foundation like I have done before..

Hopefully, it will take off in an even greater way than it did before and we had some really great success back in the days when the Minnow-asap initiative was active.

With the different levels on LeoFinance, it will be rather easy to push people into minnow-hood, but I am more eager to push people into the upper Dolphin-level and to help them to reach new heights and goals.

I will reveal more about this project shortly, but I can tell you that this article was about engagement, and the upcoming project is all about engagement, in a natural way. In an already existing LeoFinance way.

Authors aren't used to the engagement level we have on LeoFinance and content consumers aren't used to the quality of crypto- & finance related content we have either.. With the upcoming project, Hive will benefit, and so will LeoFinance and the community as well.

A strong foundation to build upon is necessary for a healthy community, and I'll do my part to strengthen our foundation and to improve the distribution of tokens.

This is a really important post for SEO and Marketing purposes. I like how you're linking about to your previous article that holds the #1 ranking in google. I will link back to it in the future and encourage others to do so. Please continue to rehash these ideas and link back to in the future. Soon there will be a Leofinance update making it possible to earn on your old posts forever so that will be great for your content. Great job on the seo!!!!

I often make internal links to some of my previous articles for SEO purposes. While I think that most people are sharing their previous works in an attempt to get more recognition and exposure, and in an attempt to earn extra rewards, that is just a bonus for me. I have been focusing more on bringing organic traffic to LeoFinance and Hive, and I will continue to have that in mind going forward as well as I know how important it is in terms of growth. :)

You know that evergreen content is coming to LeoFinance. That's going to be great for you.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah, we'll see how everything turns out. I know that evergreen content is coming and I know that organic traffic will play a major role for us in the long haul, so I'll just do what I can do increase it and make things easier for us.

I posted about your post to build some links to it. We need your post to stay #1 forever. I will drip it into reddit somehow too lol

Engagement matters!

Plain and simple. To use a potentially poor metaphor, engagement is the difference between an impressive company building where nothing was done since it was put up, and the same impressive company building with the windows cleaned, fresh carpet by the front entrance, the greenery trimmed and neat, the front lawn watered and mowed and colorful flowers in the landscaping.

Point being, engagement isn't merely important in the general well-being of the existing users, it is also important in conveying "this is a happening place" to an external audience, whether they are just driving by, or seriously looking into joining.

I do remember the "Minnow ASAP" project, along with "10K Minnows" and various other building programs that (in my opinion) really helped keep Steem afloat at a time when few people actually gave a damn. Putting something similar in place in a venue that is already thriving will only strengthen it and add another layer of incentive for growth.

Look forward to more!

It's true that comments are worth more than votes because comments are people who have learned something from your publication and have liked it so much that they have commented on it so I think they are more valuable.

and indeed Leo finance one can have the opportunity to get more comments than in hive or steemit.

The engagement on Leo finance is topnotch.
I once spoke about the same thing a month ago.
People tend to genuinely engage with Leo finance. Some for the knowledge they acquire and also even for the rewards but whatever be the case, the engagement there is encouraging and makes one want to dish out more good contents to be digested by the people.
I hope you get back as you said and keep pushing forward and higher. All the best!

I joined about 2 months ago and I haven't experienced this much engagement before and engagement is extremely important for growth in general. Especially as authors wants engagement, but also because content consumers will have more content to consume as well, if there's a lot of activity in the comment sections.

I'm having a really hectic work schedule but I try to put in whatever time I can find. I need to have some sort of "schedule for LeoFinance" as well, but it's really difficult. Especially as I want to be as active as possible and doesn't have much spare time..

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I can understand. Sometimes we don't have enough time to do the things we love to do and want to do.
So sorry about your tight schedule

I guess yesterday I became Orca!
That's nice to hear. On Hive I'ma mere minnow. I'll continue to post valuable posts/comments and try to buy more LEO. 2021 will be time to shine. Have a nice day :)

It's my first time here and its a good thing I read your post which gives me some hints on how this platform works. I am still exploring and experimenting and I hope someday I can have this kind of engagement. Happy new year

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The engagement is absolutely here but I have noticed, very few comments seem to get upvoted by the author which is curious. Even the genuine well thought out and relevant ones.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I guess it depends on who the authors are. I mean, some authors aren't willing to spend time replying to comments either, and I personally think that is very bad. My audience is my most vital asset, and the least I can do is to give them an upvote for their efforts.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's the way I think too. The engagement is what matters and leads the whole chain of connections.
I try to stay clear of people who can't be bothered answering comments as I see them as just farming.
Great post, got a lot of people talking so best wishes and thanks for taking the time to reply...but I do miss the notifications on here!

I don't think the level of engagement that Leofinance is seeing can be seen in Hive until the latter moves into linear curation distribution.

It is not even an experiment anymore , it is a fact that it works and increases engagement.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I totally agree with you. 50/50 rewards and to not having to compete over the best curation rewards is the way to go. I think this is how things are supposed to be.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

All right one step at a time. I will try to reach Leo dolphin. Just can’t believe how high Leo has moved up. Just wow.

We're seeing a lot of ripple effects coming out from all the hard work we've seen on LeoFinance. Both from the LEO team, but also from the community and the users. Let's continue to move 'mountains' together. :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I like the way Leofinance makes us money, I just started to Have my Attention in it, I for sure will invest in This Cryptocurrency very soon, Have a Great Year

That sounds great. Just remember that you don't have to spend money to invest in LeoFinance, or Hive for that matter. You can just as easily invest your time instead, and move up the 'ladder' with time and by being consistent. :)

every time I feel that it reached its top performance the Leo team will launch an even greater hype for everyone.

That is definitely one of the reasons for all the engagement we see. The Hype. Hype is an important ingredient for success and LeoFinance is great at creating 'buzz' and 'hype'.
