#JOINHIVE CONTEST IS LIVE!

The entire month of September is #JOINHIVE month! We are making a big push to onboard new users, errrr, owners, now that Peakd has integrated the hiveonboard.com referral system. To celebrate this huge feat, we are having a #jOINHIVE contest from September 1 until September 30, 2020. The top 5 Hivers who onboard the most people with their referral link will win awesome prizes!

This campaign has been in the works for months and would not be possible without the very hard work of @roomservice (creator of hiveonboard.com), the devs in @peakd, @hivetrending and many others. The sponsors of #JoinHIve are @threespeak, @theycallmedan, @nulledgh0st of @hivehustlers & @hiveswag and myself (@stellabelle). Thank you to @theycallmedan for providing the cash prizes and to @nulledgh0st for providing the t-shirt.

Ok, let’s get on with the prizes.

The top 5 Hivers who refer the most new people to Hive will win the following awesome prizes:

1st: $100 of Hive + HiveSwag T-shirt

How To Enter the #JoinHive Contest:

  1. Get your personal referral link from Peakd or Hiveonboard.com. Peakd is the easiest way. Go to “actions” in your Peakd profile, and then select “your referrals”. Copy your referral link.

  2. Share your Hive referral link with friends, family, colleagues and on social media. Share everywhere!

  3. Every new person you refer to Hive must write a #joinhive post which includes: a selfie photo holding a sign of new Hive account name. Your new referrals must use the tag #joinhive in their Hive post so that we can find and verify it. If your referral wants to remain anonymous, that's fine, they can wear a mask, and still hold up the sign with their account name.

Here’s a sample two different selfies which are both acceptable:

Pro-tips:

RC and HP for Newbies

Every person who joins with your referral link will be given a small amount of HP. It’s a good practice to check on your referrals to monitor their progress and see if any are low on RC (resource credits). If someone is very active and needs more HP, visit this site and input their account name: https://giftgiver.site/
This will give them a temporary HP delegation to help them get established in the beginning.

You can do a lot of this monitoring in your Referrals page in Peakd:

Benefits of Onboarding New People With your Referral Link:

By default, you will receive 3% of the rewards from everyone who uses your referral link to join Hive. This setting can be changed by your referrals at any time, so it’s a voluntary setting from them. Most new people won’t know how to change it in the beginning, but as they learn more, they might be changing this. If you want to educate your referrals on how to change this setting, you can of course do so.

This 3% is by default and will continue even after the #JoinHive campaign is over. It’s a nice perk for those who are real referral hustlers.

OK. Let’s get this party started and start inviting people to #JOINHIVE!!!!!

(#JoinHive GIFS WILL BE FLOWING SOON! I hardly got any sleep and #HiveChat was today too! Nice job @hivetrending!)

If you’re a whale, orca or dolphin or fish, and you want to help with this initiative by directing some of your idle HP, then follow the @hivepeople trail on https://hive.vote/. Choose the account hivepeople to follow because I will be verifying all the #JoinHive posts, and upvoting the ones that don’t appear fake. I’m sure some will slip by me, but I will do my best to make sure that only real people are upvoted for this contest.

One last thing, we need some help in the Hive Marketing discord channel to verify the #JoinHive posts. Join the discord here: https://discord.gg/7yYFEq3

If you have a bit of time, come and help us do some verification of all the new people who will be onboarded during the month of September. Who knows, maybe we will have a virtual pizza party for all the volunteers who help with verifying the #JoinHive posts (there is a channel already set up that automatically imports all the posts tagged with #JoinHive).

Ok, let’s get this #JoinHive party started and find out who the real hustlers of Hive are!

H3llo, @hivepeople

Nice initiative. To bad I'm learning about this a little bit late. One question, the sign with the username to verify the account is to be published in a second post? Or is it part of the introduce yourself first post?

Thank you

it's to be added to the first introduceyourself post. But the important thing is that the new user must use the joinhive tag on the post, or else i cannot find it.

Ok. Thank you!

Great Great Great! We have all the momentum to make things possible! We can make this great contest with all our wonderful Hive Swarm!

yessssssssssss 😀

Amazing job with this, @stellabelle! And I just got the results of my Twitter poll, asking about a theme for the gif contest, and reasons to join Hive won by a landslide, so hoping to generate more attention to this awesome contest via that. And thanks for the reminder - been meaning to trail HivePeople to help support the new Hive peeps.

Oh, and...

traci, you're my queen.

This is a wonderful initiative! Kudos to all who made it possible 👏

Just an honest feedback, the selfie requirement is a must? Not everyone is comfortable with revealing their look on the internet. It could stifle the response rate imho

as far as the selfie requirement: the new person can wear a mask or cover their identity......they still have to hold up a sign with their new Hive account name on it. This will greatly reduce the amount of fraud.....as i have been doing contests for a while. A new photo with a person (wearing a mask is OK), is what we are after.

they can hide their identity completely by wearing a mask or costume, but yeah they still gotta take a photo with them holding up a sign. otherwise, we would get tons of cheaters who would just create 10,000 new accounts.

If your referral wants to remain anonymous, that is fine, they can wear a mask. See examples below, both are perfectly acecptable.

Here’s a sample two different selfies which are both acceptable:

Great initiative... we hope that our account is NOT in the running for prizes since we regularly get hundreds of referrals a month now and we'd like to see more personal referrals by users win.

Also do you think it would be good if we paid for promotion of this post on Peakd.com? We could do a 7 day promotion period on it.

yes a paid promotion for this would be good i think! since this is a month long, what timing do you think would be good? I think the last 7 days of September or should it happen now?
You're not in the running, this is just for Hivers....we will make sure.
Thanks for your offer to do a promo! that's one thing that i am never sure of, since for me personally, i tend to ignore promotions. LOL, but yeah, please do a promotion for this, as new users will love to learn about this!

Thanks to the promotion offered by @peakd I read the post: it works! 😎


Thanks @stellabelle for this very interesting initiative!
A huge hug!

thanks for the virtual beer!

wait, the paid promotion is live now?

can i do the promotion even though i have already published it?

Yep, just follow this link and select the correct post: https://peakd.com/me/tools/promotions

Brainstorming some ideas for types of people to focus on for onboarding:

  • Is there an active, but small facebook group that you could convince the admin of that group to migrate users? [Then they would want to be on here, because their community is on here - and the rewards would be secondary.]
  • Can we transform the current HIVE bloggers into HIVE business owners? [So that the audiences that they are building are built on HIVE, and they expand further into monetization elsewhere online, and then are able to increase their ownership in HIVE due to not relying on HIVE for resource extraction?]
  • Can we onboard people with existing communities, [Like Metal Bands or Synthwave Bands, or Bluegrass Bands, - People who can leverage NFTShowroom, and MSPWaves, and their HIVE Blogs?]
  • Can we focus on Cryptoartists upping their game, so that more collectors are contacted and recruited from EOS and ETH and WAX, and then brought to HIVE, so that projects like NFTShowroom, actually have more of a thriving market?

It seems like a more specific focus of who we want to bring on would be a useful way to leverage this contest.

.:.

An example use for this contest could be -- sharing this contest with a facebook group that is tired of being censored by FB, and letting the admin of that group claim the prize money, and then using that prize money to power up, to increase rewards that go out to their community members.

Etc.

These are really fantastic ideas.
You as a cryptoartist could help immensely by creating a group that is specific to the cryptoart niche, and help them directly.
As far as facebook, I am no longer on there, but i am sure someone who is there can do as you described.
What ideas do you have to make an action plan to onboard cyptoartists?

I'd rather help onboard people to existing Cryptoart Communities:

https://peakd.com/c/hive-158694/trending - Alien Art HIVE @juliakponsford
https://peakd.com/c/hive-156509/trending - OnchainArt @midlet

These two communities are a sufficient number of art communities for me to be associated with. I'd rather help them build more than start a new one.

I share my business processes on Alien Art HIVE.

I don't actually think onboarding cryptoartists is super important. I think Cryptoartists will go wherever they believe they can get money.

The strongest impact that a cryptoartist can make on the larger ecosystem would be:

  • Create Projects that are outstanding and attract attention.
  • Grow an Audience with those projects that are beyond HIVE
  • Offer some kind of unique value proposition that is available only on HIVE.
  • Collaborate with Non-Crypto Artists / Creators, and help them monetize their work through HIVE and through the collaboration.
  • Monetize their projects on external platforms.
  • Onboard their own fans / audience in order to reward engagement with posts on HIVE, so that audience members are financially incentivized by upvotes from the artists they are following.
  • Artists also need to Secure income to power up, so they can allocate these resources as HP Power, which increases vote value, which allows for engagement rewards to be more noteworthy.

I'll think more about this later.

I Appreciate all The work You're doing For Hive Marketing and putting us out there.

I’m looking forward to contributing more when I get some free time.

Cool
I'm jumping on this, let me see those to catch.

Excellent, i am looking for the #joinhive tags to see who you have onboarded.

The momentum is with us.

Let’s keep BUIDLing

Great initiative

Only your referrals who write a #joinhive post on Hive will be counted towards your total.

That makes it legit 👌

yeah, well we had to make sure that no hackers just created 10,000 new accounts...

I love this. Not good at sales, I'm much happier with the retention stuff. I'll do what I can to support, though. I already have a referral link on my footer - for @dapplr and also for @steempress so when I blog from wordpress, that's there, and also when I do the #posh thing. Suffice it to say, I know my strengths weaknesses and would prefer to play to my strengths, so I will continue to upport from behind.

well we need more like you! Retention is almost EVERYTHING!
I would love it if you helped in Discord too.....as you have a way with people.

Cool! I am there...lurking. I do pop in from time to time. Feel free to tag me...

I am curiou

Question: what is the way to access a partial contest ranking?


A huge hug!

i don't understand this question...what do you mean?

I mean, is somewhere a front-end to see the ranking from September 1 onwards of all referrers, i.e. potential contest participants, @hivepeople?
It would be nice for participants and "spectators" to see how the contest is going, isn't it?

Thank you, @hivepeople: very kind!

oh definitely! @roomservice built a leaderboard tool, which you can see here: https://hiveonboard.com/leaderboard
it was just built, so we are making sure it works.

Well done, @roomservice ! 👏

Love the idea

I think Hive is a great place many people would love to be!

Though $200 in hive is about 5 times 200 hive lol

yeah, there was maybe a slight error in the display of the information...

Gaston already had created the video so i just let it go....
