Why You Should Personalize The Shilling Of Hive

png_20220724_065345_0000.png



For some days now, I've been spending time on Twitter, not to direct shill but finding ways to indirectly do it. One thing I've come to notice is that people abhor direct and incessant shilling and it gives off a spammy vibe I'll explain.

How many of y'all know about OCTAFX? I think they're a forex trading platform and to be sincere, I got to know about them through their incessant shilling.

Every Crypto influencer in Nigeria has done some ads for them in the past if you're not a fan of Crypto, they're paying comic actors, Instagram models, and TikTok creators to talk about their services and what they truly offer. I do not know how they make these millions to pay these multiple influencers but I can say they're arguably the most advertised servicing on the internet at the moment.

I think I do not take this shilling seriously, even if they've achieved the aim of creating awareness, what about the end goal of getting this awareness to become customers, reviews, and testimonies of actual people making money? No of course not.

Shilling is negative when there's no altruistic or provable result to show and this is why I think the millions offered by OctaFX are just a hoax. Now back up shilling. Hive has the product, we cannot deny or argue this, however sometimes I feel, the shilling itself shouldn't be done by a paid team alone or a team motivated by the DHF.

sometimes I think there should be some naturalness to how people should tweet about their experiences, losses, gains, and victories. What this tends to do is to create awareness and curiousness rather than repetition or mere rebuff.

Sometimes shilling without creativity brings rebuff and it becomes uninteresting. This is why sharing content on Twitter without a terse text on what the post is about might not attract any clicks. Personally, shilling is gradual, doing it minimal, gradual, and systemic.

For example, instead of saying web2.0 is useless, one can just say for everything good about Web2, web3 offers better and more. In reality, we're trying to sell an undervalued product, even with all the capabilities of Hive, one will still need creative instincts to sell what Hive offers.

Twitter and web2 are where the audience is, Twitter because it's friendlier and vast, it's easier to reach huge numbers without bigger restrictions like Instagram and Facebook, plus a lot of people are fans of microblogging, shilling something like Hive would be mostly text base, I'm glad we've recognized all these.

The best part of shilling is needing an actual targeted audience, and while there are other formats to do so, Twitter remains the place. Since this feels distasteful, we cannot produce web3 oriented people at the moment because it's web2 oriented people that would be transitioned, then maybe the next generation might be born into web3.

The whole essence of this post is to talk about how we should creatively shill Hive, especially in situations that present themselves for an actual shilling.

I think one of the reasons why we cannot maintain natural, constant, or original shilling from the Hive populace is because they're used to being incentivized for shilling their home. @theycallmedan has done this a lot, trying to create the right energy and motivation, but, surprisingly, people cannot continue when the incentive expires.


Final Thoughts

In fact, it creates the reality that shilling is a thing that should be an act of Incentivization, but in reality, when this becomes the case, it becomes difficult for people to chase natural and purposeful shilling, rather, they're chasing the deadline, the numbers and how far they can go rather than focusing on how well they can do.

In reality, people should personalize shilling Hive as a goal. Because of how it can potentially benefit the Blockchain.

It doesn't have to be frequent, but when everyone makes it their goal, they'll find the best creative ways in their capacity to get it done.

I really liked this line.

You have said it well that instead of advertising about the existence of something, if we tell about our experiences and the learning process it would intrigue the audience more. When something sounds natural, it would encourage the users to start it with not exceptionally high expectations. When the expectations would be real, the user is likely to go farther.

Advertising from a personal experience is way better, this is why I don't think octafx's ads hits their expectations. I think it's going to have to be an individual indulgence and not the one someone would summon others to do a shilling for a little sum. That shilling is fake.

This alone can change the game. Instead of sounding like a bunch of disgruntled web2 to users. We start a sober dialogue and show the best part of what we believe in about the crypto space.

The negative approach and speaking bad about other coins is already damaging bitcoins maximalists, we can not allow ourselves to fall in that trap of being a toxic bunch.

Well, crypto aside, I still think crypto needs more adoption, while Hive is a smaller pond in the Crypto and Blockchain space, there's still people who haven't heard of Crypto not to talk about the capacities of web3 but we can do it gently and easy.

If you'd click shill at the beginning, you'd have seen the meaning. It means to promote a particular asset that one's vested in so that it can do well in the market and alsoe for their advantage price wise.

In agreement with you on this, it is each and everyone's responsibility to shill Hive without incentive as the motive to do so. The incentive already exists on Hive from the reward pool which we all can tap into daily for our own bit.
You do have a good point about writing a teaser text about a post, that's something I should work on.

Well, sharing contents are one way to do it, posh or no #posh, we have to individually get better at marketing and to do this, we have to constantly find a grind, then doing it continuously as well. Thanks for the comment bro

I have been doing that since long, through my Google reviews, twitter, sharing them on our workplace etc. Interestingly, now I am going to represent HIVE in the first Web3 meet up at my place soon.

THe biggest content creators won't shill hive and the reasons are simple.

Reason 1

The most successful products in history have had referral programs. Amazon, Netflix, paypal, apple. Many crypto shills are getting paid on the back end to shill. hive should use that dao to pay some professional shillers.

Reason 2

Hive is transparent and shows account balances. You'd think full disclosure is good but it isn't. It only will breed the biggest haters in crypto and people in crypto are the biggest tribal haters because the money pool is small and limited. So it rubs people the wrong way.

Reason 3

Hivers are circle jerk assholes for the most part. Everyone in crypto knows it so often times big crypto influencers won't shill it because their fanbase hates it.

solutions get a referral program, can't change the transparency code so penalize whales so it sends the message being rich not kool because unfortuntely you're always going to have haters that's just how humans are and finally use the dao to pay big influencers.

Even the best systems have their flaws, hating on the system won't do a thing.

Well i'd have to disagree with that. i think it's the hating that causes a business or a product not to grow. I would argue you don't have the big content influencers and supporters because they going well i hate this product look at all these circle jerks.

I don't know but it's gotta be some reason. The problem is when you say the best systems have their flaws .. sure but they also ranked number 1 or in the top 10. So that means they've done something to get them to that position. Whether it was securing significant funding or developing useful tools or good marketing. Whatever it was they are at the level.

I would think a wise community would be willing to address whatevever issues hold them back. I mean you guys pat yourselves on the back alot but the rest of the space doesn't share your views which is not good.

I'm here for the free transactions which aren't really free but that can only go so far. Crypto has shown us these people are willing to pay thousands of dollars just to send a token to the next person which is ridiculous but it is what it is. So hive should be realistic and rethink the situation because even if a few guys manage to make $2 a post .. that's not enough to encourage significant growth. So i don't know you guys tell me maybe i'm missing something but it seems like you all maybe got 10k regular users adn posters a month and that's hardly going to equal value and growth.

All marketing should be as personal as possible. In the US, realtors put pictures of their families on their cards to try and personalize things.

Hahaha I understand these situation. I know about companies that put up the life transformation of people who their system has enriched. I think the word of the mouth is the best form of advertising.

Forex brokers like OctaFX make the bulk of their money by simply counter trading their clients.

They know that 99% of new clients will lose money, so they don't pass on any of the risk and just pocket the money when they inevitably fail.

By getting influencers to advertise their platform, most of the sign ups are going to be uneducated people who are even more likely to lose long term.

It's literally a money printer.

It's the certainty for me. They're doing more advertising and getting influencers to shill them While offering little or nothing for all the money they're getting back in return.

It's crazy with all these forex brokers, I'm still imagine how people still live in the illusion that these companies will make them rich.
