Help Me Sell Anime - Ask Your Questions About Anime and Akiba STEEM Will Hold Contests To Answer Them


8 months agoBusy4 min read

In case you don't know I'm a mod from the Akiba STEEM Anime community. If you are interested in anime, feel free to have a look around: Now we are a small community which @ejgarcia started and we are thinking of holding some competitions and making the #anime a more lively and worthwhile place. But looking at the tag I see that the interest is kind of limed. It's as if anime is a niche. But nothing stays the way they are without reason. There MUST be some real reasons behind the lack of interest and I'd like to test the waters and start some competition to make "Anime" a thing on the STEEM Blockchain.

Why You Should Watch Anime

Take some time to read the above post. If you are already a fan, the rest of the post might not be for you. If you are not a fan, I'd like to ask why? We should always come to our conclusions through understanding. No matter how great a LAMBO is, it's probably a nuisance if you are living in a place where the roads suck. So a Hummer or at least a good SUV would better serve you.

Being An Anime Salesman

That's what I'm doing here and to do that properly, I need to know the market better. I need to get your heads and help you with a Pandora's box of Holier than Hollywood entertainment that would stretch your mind and make Blade Runner look ordinary.

So it's time you ask me (and Akiba STEEM) why the hell you should even watch Anime. Let us sell this magnificent mode of edutainment for you. Ask us anything and everything and we'll monetize your content and reward those who ask.

The Plan

The idea is to figure out everything a potential fan would like to know and make competitions to answer those questions. Our competition posts will get upvotes and those who submit their contributions will be rewarded. Then we share these answers around and get people into watching anime and if I'd be really ambitious; to make the anime industry a bigger deal than Hollywood itself.

  • Please go all out and ask related question.
  • Use comparisons and analogies from other media.
  • Don't be afraid to offend but don't be rude.
  • Ask your questions as if you are making an important decision in your life like buying a new LAMBO.

A Dose of STEEM Basic Income

I haven't really discussed this with rest of the community. So this is still just a proposal. I want at least 50% of the rewards to be given in the form of SBI shares.

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content.

It's basically a subscription service for life that you just pay once. @steembasicincome will upvote your posts based on how much shares you own. This kind of rewarding encourage the contestants to be regular posters and bring value o the community. It'll also make eventually earn them more than 1 STEEM worth rewards per share in the long term. Additionally we could make an @akiba.steem community account and do the SBI sponsorship via the community account. Optionally SBI shares could be used as a way to reward active members/judges who will have to waive off any and all prizes from any competition held by Akiba STEEM creating good incentives for more prominent members to lay back and build community instead of competing with newbies. They'd still be able to post. But their contributions won't be counted for ranks or prizes.
