How To Make Money On Steemit As A Nigerian

How To Make Money on Steemit

First Off, What is Steemit?

Steemit is a social medium that pays every post uploader that uploads on it. It pays in cryptocurrency called Steem. So it’s safe to say Steemit is just another way to make money online. Steem is like every other digital currency such as Bitcoin, Altcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and so on. People get to upload their articles, images, commentaries, videos e.t.c to earn cryptocurrency.

To me, steemit is more or less a social medium and a blockchain site. Steemit is like the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram where you have the opportunity to upload and showcase what you know how to do best such as article writing, video making and so on but you do not get paid on these social media sites as in Steemit. Steemit is like blockchain sites because you get paid for every content you upload on it in cryptocurrency as the reward for your work.

Steemit has three currency units. That is ways by which you can store your reward.

  • Steem Power
  • Steem
  • Steem Dollars

Explaining these currency units will divert our attention from the topic to be discussed which is “HOW TO MAKE MONEY ON STEEMIT”.

As a result of this, we’ll go straight to facts about steemit.

  • Upload more and keep your votes less

Instead of concentrating on voting posts, the only thing you need as a beginner on steemit is to focus on how you can get to upload more meaningful posts that will attract upvotes and good remarks from important ones. Focus on uploading things that will aid people in their day-to-day activities and earn yourself recognition. After, you’ve gained the popularity and the recognition you needed and you’ve reached an upper level, you can now focus on voting other posts. People also earn money from voting too though.

  • Avoid laziness

Posts that have good contents still find it hard to be voted for on steemit talk less of posts that are done in a lazy manner. You have to put in your efforts in every post you upload on steemit. You have to make your contents look professional and worthy of being voted for and appreciated by readers. You have to make it look very professional that readers or lookers will find it difficult to point an error out of the posts. You need to be hardworking and unrelenting.

  • Make use of pictures

You  cannot upload a post without using a picture and then you expect people to review the post or vote for the post. No  matter how classy and professional it may look, people might not find it attractive. So, for you to make your posts look attractive to readers, endeavour to attach a picture and you get your votes coming in.

  • Be up and running

You cannot just remain mute for weeks and expect votes to be coming in and you cannot earn if people do not vote your post. You need to be regular in uploading posts. You need to be active in every social medium because it will help in developing your steam power and I’m sure you know that steam power is an essential key to earning steem.

  • Talk on every post

Attached to every post is a comment section where readers are given the opportunity to share their thoughts concerning a post. I’ll advise you to look for popular posts to comment on and your comments must be a constructive comment. You try to criticise the post constructively. That means you’re not supporting the view of the writer and at the same,  you’re not criticising. You’re in between.

  • Accumulate your steem

When you start earning your steem, do not misuse it. You know I said you can earn big by voting. Accumulating your steem and building your steemit wallet will make this happen. After you’ve had enough steem in your wallet, you can start voting and earn extra steem. You might want to check how to withdraw on steemit in Nigeria.
