The Benefit of Being a Content Creator On Hive

avatar

hive.png

For quite a few of us on the blockchain, we consider ourselves...Content creators.

By no means, do we consider ourselves the top of the food chain when it comes to creators, but creators nonetheless. The 'opportunity' here is highlighted by the fact that we can be rewarded literally from day one...As long as we are adding some value to the chain or the tribe we are a part of.

And this to me, is the biggest benefit of building your brand as a content creator right here...On Hive!

I was reminded of this fact tonight while scrolling around some popular social media sites. There was a newer content creator I started to follow and I was kind of shocked to read their latest update. I'm paraphrasing but it went like this:

"I've been trying to build my brand on YouTube for months now and I've seen a drastic decrease in views to my content over the past week. And because that, I need to take a break from creating and see if I can find the passion again to continue...."

Here's the thing with building your brand on 'traditional' social media. If you don't get the views, the engagement or the followers fairly quickly...The climb may seem insurmountable.

More often than not, people give up because they judge how well they are doing by...Likes, followers and views...If they don't hit a specific number they have in mind, they feel like it's a failure and of course, the social media platform of choice won't 'share' their partner rewards with you.

Hive is just...Different.

Before I get into why it's so powerful to start your creation journey here, let me get this out of the way.

You are going to SUCK at this stuff when you first get started.

The entire point of calling this a journey is that...You have to get better each and every day. And here's why building on Hive is a superior choice...The community WILL support you AS you get better!

If you find a niche and tap into it here on Hive, and show up every day to add value...The community will have your back. They will engage with you, they will upvote you, they will follow you. And while you may not get the 'numbers' that traditional social media will attract, you will gain something much more important for that journey...

Confidence to keep going.

Re-reading that comment from the content creator above, they seemed shattered and ready to give up completely because...Their views went down...And that's a sad thing for me to witness.

But on Hive and the tribes here, we aren't judged by 'how many followers' we have. Or how many view we got on our 3speak video.

The biggest benefit to becoming a content creator on Hive is simple...We are 'judged' by how much value we bring to the table. And value is....Effort!

Showing up every day and putting in the work...That's how you get support and it shows the power of the Hive community for all content creators...New or experienced!

So we have come across an unforeseen expense after already spending all our household reserves helping a family member - car breakdown.

It's like a shitty card drawn from the community chest in the monopoly boardgame.

Without Hive and making extra money on Hive we would we in big trouble!

So yeah, I think so am on a 39 day streak of posting every day now and the rewards are there for the hard work and for keeping on going!

As always, seeing you here day after day, I feel inspired because I can see how the hard work is paid off.

Beyond Hive rewards, the crypto gives us opportunity to buy and invest in other crypto and NFTs on the Hive blockchain that gives us passive income! So awesome!

So cool to hear that Hive helped you in that situation. I'm right along the same lines, where Hive is about to help my family in more ways then I could ever explain.

Such an awesome place to build :)

I am trying as much as possible to get my kids more active on Hive. @merenludick is 11, but he has the most plans at the moment to be active on the platform.

A little bit of staking here and there and imagine where he could be in 20 years!

Combined with that 20% APR for HBD...I started up two savings accounts for my kids a few months ago, and just will contribute a little each month. They should be set when they hit 30 lol

Right?! 30 years old and the kids have what only rich people with many generations of generational wealth pass on in their WILL. When Meren is 30, I am 55 hehe.

At first the journey would look rough and tough if the actual results doesn't shows up but keeping that consistency and deriving the habit to never give up will definitely speak positive someday.

It adds up and really starts to snowball. But from day one, as long as people are genuine and want to grow here, they can get support out of the gates.

A lot of gifted content creators will easily breakthrough on the Hive blockchain depending on their level of engagement and networking, on other places that are monetized, it's harder, plus you can be demonitized anytime. You're right on so many fronts.

That's the scariest thing too...Some of these people put their life's work into this stuff, only to be de-platformed. Madness.

I also feel sad reading that content creator's comment. They have a specific number in mind when they create content. But here on Hive, the game is totally different. This is a journey. And amazing people are here to support you on your journey!

I think one of my favorite things about Hive is the fact that it represent possibly the easiest and most accessible way for "Jane and Joe Average" to dip their toes into the waters of crypto investing. Crypto is basically "Greek" to most people on the street, but creating content on social media... pretty much everybody knows how to do that, at least in a simplistic way.

Heck, my becoming part of the LeoFinance community is essentially an offshoot of having a cat blog, and that's about as non-technical as it gets!

So true! It's a way to dip your feet in, without anything right out of your pocket. That's a big win for newer people that are usually just trying to figure out the basics.

Hive is so unique and amazing.. you just need patience, consistency and be a good writer, and also be commutative. Unlike the traditional method where you have to hit a certain mark like followers or watch hour before you start earning and then you start begging for followers and views. This is why Hive is King because you don't need all that begging and it will always come true when you need emergency saving with little cash I know because it has helped me.

Youtubers failing without any control of their future on the platform is sad but it happens to the majority of the creators. I've been laughed at when I invite here. They are like an abused spouse, always making excuses to stay lol. But I think enough things are happening to make them at least start to look. I just when it happens that the community is here to curate them.

As content creators, we give so much and we receive more in return. With each comment, with each upvote, we simply elevate our experience and feel proud of our creation. And having those rewards put at work right away as Hive Power for governance or HBD Savings for 20% APR, just feels so much better.

I actually like Kevin Nash's videos on how streaming and marketing work and from what I see, it's hard. The best way to grow is to use every single platform you have to get your videos out. So I just see things like Youtube and other mainstream sites as very hard to grow in. It's much easier to grow in a place less crowded and everyone will suck when they first start.

The case that you have told reminds me a lot of the case of a successful company with a thriving trajectory that had its headquarters in the country where I lived before, I will not say the name. The company was in full growth, hiring dozens of workers every week and changing offices every 3 months. It had a turnover of more than 100 million dollars. Well, a fateful day for the company Don Google changed the search algorithm and went from being in the first position of many searches to disappearing from the first page. His service was, is still good, providing great value, but his income decreased by 80% and he had to lay off 90% of his employees. The company is still alive and making money but it has never been or will ever be that company that was going to dominate its market niche.

And sadly, that's not a rare story when it comes to relying on traditional media / social platforms...They can switch their site up in a second and all your hard work is useless.

Since i discovered hive I have forgone my dreams of building on centralised platforms like youtube. It is a no brainer that your chances are better off here on hive than on any other centralised platform, and if you truly wanted to grow your brand on a centralised platform you can use hive as your stepping stone. I have seen a lot of people do this and it worked for them.

Asides showing up, I think people need to consider the value they bring to the network. You don't need to go over the top, just participate in the building process, make friends, increase your social capital and most importantly enjoy the process. Money can be a great motivator but it will to suffice all the time. You need to love what you do and that will be the game changer for you.

And I am a perfect example of this. I can tell you 💯 percent Jon I correct. I have shown up every day. Posted, almost at 1000 strait days.

Look at my stats. Look at my followers. Look at my upvotes.

Look at what happened when I became Mr. Positive and people liked my content more.

I was over 900 strait days before I felt like I found my legs.

Show up every day. Contribute every day. You will climb the ladder of branding and success.

On Hive, content creators can see results from day 1.

They won't be huge, buy they lay out a clear pathway that you can scale via building relationships.

This is the difference to say scaling your income on YouTube or Twitter.
