It's Time To Practice What I Preach.png

My partner and I have been bringing our businesses to the blockchain for years now. We're both huge fans of this technology and believe so much in not only the tech behind it all...But the community as well.

It's been a no brainer for us!

And part of what we teach within our training at ClickTrackProfit is to start using the tools on the blockchain, for a lot of your branding and content marketing strategies;

  • Don't use YouTube as much (if at all) and use @threespeak

  • Stop giving Medium all the attention, start blogging on any of the Hive front ends.

  • Instagram is cute, but why not try Dapplr instead

And so far, I have been living by this switch. I've taken the majority of my social media accounts and used them for promoting things that we're using on Hive...Or even replacing them completely with the blockchain version of the tool I use daily.

Along with all the posting and content that goes out from yours truly, we also host 2 live streams each and every week...

Crypto Mondays and Thursday Night Live

In these live sessions, we attract a lot of our community members to stop by and learn about different topics...From the blockchain to building online businesses and everything in between.

And guess where we stream....

Facebook and Twitter!

And this week, we decided to change things up going forward!

We're going to be making a big push to get our community to tune into our streams on @vimm


Here's a project that seems to fly under the radar on Hive that is truly a remarkable experience.

When DLive took the money and ran back on the old blockchain, Vimm stayed loyal as heck to this community and continued to develop their project. They have built a fantastic live streaming application right here on Hive!

Oo why the HECK don't I start practicing what I preach??

It's time to become a product of our product and USE these tools rather than rely on the traditional social media options out there.

Now that doesn't mean we aren't streaming on Facebook and Twitter anymore. I'm not an idiot, I do know our greatest pull will be from those platforms...

But last night we had 10 live viewers on our stream on @vimm and that was a spur of the moment test to try it out :)

Everyone that came by, said it was a better experience than Facebook....So going forward, we will be promoting our streams to go live on Vimm and encouraging everyone still on Twitter and Facebook, to jump on board!

The CTP community has been embracing everything Hive has to offer, and they are excited to try new things out! Plus we feel this is a much more attractive platform to build our live shows on going forward!

So enough of the traditional platforms, it's time to bring entrepreneurs over to another amazing platform right here on Hive!

Hope you guys can stop by on Monday and Thursday nights at 8pm eastern :)

I never quite understood the lure of Medium. Years ago I researched and choose between Steem or Medium and Steem won me over.

A big thing that really irked me was that readers on medium generally needed to pay to read blogs. As Medium grew in popularity, my jaw fell in shock. Still, I believe that there are great limitations due to that set up.

Do you think of Dapplr like Instagram? I know there’s filters but I Hadn’t thought about it as a IG alternative.

There is a distinct need for an instagram-like app on hive. Back in the Steem days, we had steepshot, but that project fell apart when the devs abandoned it. Damn shame, too, it was a solid app!

I mean, it's the closest thing we have. But yeah there was Steepshot and even Appics. So the tech is there to build one...I think it would be a very powerful tool on Hive.

I have a standing offer for anyone who wants to have me on their stream to talk about Vimm. Just hit up the Vimm discord and DM me. We'll make it happen. If I can help you guys grow the CTP show, I'll do it!

I might take you up on that offer man, got some ideas I'll touch base with you about to help bring more people to Vimm and to Hive from our little side of the webs.

That's nice man! I'm trying to bring everyone I know to the chain so I can get rid of centralized apps.

I'm new to VIMM though so how I'd go about it? Just follow you in there?

I still haven't caught you live but I think the time works for me so I'll try to stop by next week!

You can create an account on Vimm with an email address or you can use HiveSigner to log in to Vimm. If you go the former route, you can link your Hive Wallet through HiveSigner, as well. Either way works. But with a Hive wallet linked, you can upvote their stream while they're live, and they'll see it in chat.

Yeah their app is flawless for me. So easy to use, just wish they stopped using Hive Signer and adopted Keychain.

Hive Signer is killing unicorns lol

I am totally on blockchain now. The only reason I started using twitter again was to follow you. I hate YouTube and Facebook also. these companies do not deserve any kind of support any more in any way. They have shown their true face. I will set my Vimm account up this weekend. I already loaded up Dapplr I just have to use it. I have to admit I am enjoying these platforms more anyway. Thanks for all the great content

It's so awesome, we have such a great eco system here. I'm still using traditional media, because of the pull....But slowly but surely, we'll make it 100% blockchain I hope LOL

A great plan so now for the question what took you so long (rofl) Vimm seem to work great faster than facebook for sure. So onwards and upwards. Have a great weekend

That is such a plus....For live streaming, having the audience interact with you as quickly as possible is so important.

Nice work and look forward to trying to check out one of your streams! Eat some !PIZZA

@jongolson! I sent you a slice of $PIZZA on behalf of @stickupboys.

Learn more about $PIZZA Token at (2/20)

Your data has value! Don't give it away to line someone else's pockets!

I'm never gonna be (nor do I want to be) Instagram famous LOL SO I'll stick here!

This is something totally new for me. So, I'll have to search for it, @jongolson.

Thanks for this post.

Thanks for the comment, glad you enjoyed it!

I like the idea of VIMM but sometimes it has problems loading. I tend to have fewer issues with youtube and twitch most of the time. Though it might just be because of my internet.

I noticed the lag back in the day, but they are always improving. I think the more support they get from the blockchain, the more development will happen too.

We've got new ingest servers that we hope to have rolled out to everyone by the end of this month. Those that are already testing are seeing significantly more stable broadcasts.

Its been a month or two since the last time I really had time to watch live on VIMM so I'll see if I can notice the difference when I get more free time available.

Good deal.

LOL I just made a video about hypocrites. It was in response to Dorsey going on stage at the Bitcoin conference and saying how he is all for decentralization. What a joke.

Of course, we see that with many crypto influencers so it is nothing out of the ordinary.

Nice to see someone setting the tone.

I just love the potential of these apps. And if I'm going to promote this stuff I might as well be a product of the product :)

I think it's super important that you're putting content out there on traditional social media. No one would hear of Hive otherwise. I'm not sure if it's better to keep duplicate copies on both sides or to just have a smaller collection on YouTube or Facebook with a link to the full collection on Hive.

Posted via

I mean, I'm not stopping using these platforms...Until they ban me LOL So for me, it's using as many as I can to reach as many people...But always encouraging them to get on board the blockchain apps and use them.

I'm already actually fully active here, using threespeak for my videos and hive for blogging, all my social media accounts are just for checking up stuffs and nothing really much in the direction of promoting these other Medias. Big ups to you on that one.

Posted via

Thank you sir!

Yeah for sure, just makes sense to me...If we're here everyday, let's use the applications that these amazing developers have given us!

You're looking at it the wrong way. What you want is worldwide adoption, you can't get it by only uploading on sites that no normie has ever heard of.

Most normies aren't going to search for what is the hive blockchain on 3speak or vimm. They're going to search about the hive blockchain on google and youtube, preferably YouTube because it's a trusted site, and people want to watch and/or listen.

The reason why people use medium is it's a clean interface, and known to a lot of people.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Oh I'm not stopping the posts to other sites. Far from it. Inside of CTP training we make sure people know and use them all for maximum exposure.

But my goal is to get more people, using this stuff...So encouraging members of CTP to dive into the blockchain apps, and poke around.

We still need a microblogging platform on chain so you can keep followers up to date with schedule changes and other things in order for the switch to really work

Project Blank is much needed!!!

I think you are right. What we have right here is enough instead of moving to other platforms which will not be of value. Threespeak can take the place of YouTube and hive can do so to Facebook and other social medias.

I'm hoping the SPK network absolutely crushes everything that we've seen before...And I think they have the ability to make that happen :)

This post is your #proofofbrain.

Thank you kindly :)

Hope it was of value to people!

I like Vimm and today I tried my first live stream but using OBS and learned that I need to post to Hive as soon as I started livestreaming. And I should have hit record as well cuz at least then I would have had that to post. LOL The adventure continues.
