I remember a few months ago, someone kept posting an image displaying the dessert and the title was something like: Welcome to Steemit... I can't really say that we are far from that...are we?
Yesterday, I visited the introduceyourself tag to see with my own eyes how many new members introduce themselves to the rest of the Steem community. So yesterday there were approximately 13 new posts. Today though, there are only 11. That doesn't necessarily mean that only 11 people have joined the Steem community, more likely that these are the people who took the time to write down a post and announce their presence.
Still, the number is really, and I mean really low.
I've been lurking in some discord channels, since it's the only way to have a conversation in real time, but mainly watched some conversations unfold, and I have to tell you that a big number of the active users are really concerned about everything that is taking place...
Whether it is some civil downvote war, or the activity on the platform, the current price of Steem or a mix of all those.
I get it, unless you've been living in a really destroyed economy where even one Steem token would make a huge difference in your real life issues, people evaluate their time and effort and energy that need to spend around here in order to be noticed and eventually grow, differently. I can't blame them for being...absent...
I am a different breed...and I'll probably be around even if we hit 5 cents.
And while there are no indications that the price of Steem might go up any time soon, quite the opposite actually, who said that you cannot grow your Steem holdings even in a downtrend? Don't expect me to tell you how...that's your job t find out but I'll give you one hint. Is it more probable for the price of Steem to go from 0.05$ --> 0.10$ or from 0.125$--> 0.25$? Food for thought and of course not a financial advise or anything of the sort. Just some random thoughts of mine.
I really don't want to see dipping below 0.10$ although it would be an ideal scenario for me since I am planning to buy some more around the 0.10$ mark. I really don't...
I can't even imagine how this place will look like if the price goes down like that. Do I need to remind you that there are almost 112.000 sbd available in the @Steem.dao account? For those that are not familiar with this account it is the one that fund projects like Steemworld and like the documentation for developers that @inertia is being working on. And the available funds will keep on growing unless there is a proposal to surpass @gtg's super wise proposal.
Isn't there any professional marketer around here? I am 100% sure that if he could make a marketing plan so that we could advertise Steem all over the Web or even on radio shows etc, the whole community would endorse that proposal.
WE NEED TO ADVERTISE OUR PRODUCT.
Steem is a hidden gem, but gems are being found accidentally...and we don't want that for Steem, do we? Nor we should only expect how will BTC will perform so that it can drag us up if its price start rising. We need to take action now, and advertisement at any cost should be our top priority...
Let's talk about it in the comment section below, and if you know a professional marketer...just drop that idea or maybe even tag him to this post.
Have a great one.
