Promoting Steem on Facebook, Google, and YouTube After the Ad Ban!


last yearDLive3 min read


How do we help more of us discover Steem after Google and Facebook now have banned ads for cryptocurrencies? The solution I have for this is a live music station intended to help the viewer feel amazing and keep coming back because of the very personal feel. On YouTube today, most live music stations are impersonal, make no use of the video, provide no rewards for listeners, and do little more than collect ad revenue from no copyright music. We can do better than that.

Today I am continuing my work on building the best live music station on DLive, YouTube, Twitch, Mixer, Facebook, and Smashcast. Everything is in position today and literally all I need to do is keep making the music and setting it up. I hope to have the station live within a month streaming 24/7.

How will the live music station promote Steem? Inside my Ableton Live 10 project each day I will add in secret codes that listeners can use to make a post that adds value to Steem with a minimum of 1,000 words which passes copyright screening and contains a narrative worth sharing. A link will consistently come up explaining how it works with a button to sign up for Steem, a requirement to make genuine comments on posts by others first, and explain how to add the secret tag immediately upon hearing it to a post already written in exchange for an upvote worth around $20 SBD with about 5 of these available a day. We tested this basic format in the supernatural writing contest at which helped authors earn tens of thousands of dollars in rewards in exchange for adding hundreds of stories that will bring readers to the Steem blockchain indefinitely for free.

In addition to the contest, the live music station will have links to the apps I use on Steem such as @dlive, @dsound, and directly to help users discover Steem through as many methods as possible.

With the existing live music stations often having 500 viewers online around the clock, I intend to make a music station that will help users feel so good that thousands of viewers will be watching in time all day every day. The other stations have nearly no viewer loyalty with the opportunity for one that does just begging to come along and centralize the viewers into one amazing community.

Collaborating on promoting this station to begin with will provide the foundation of viewers watching all day every day which when combined with my existing audience will provide a way to promote Steem indefinitely without sending any money off of Steem to pay for ads.

Thus, today as with many days before and after, I am live streaming my service, work, and joy in building this music station live with you. Thank you for reading with me today and I will see you on the live stream!
