Proposals for Improving Retention Rate of Newusers

On behalf of Steem Greeters Team, I present our proposals for Improving Retention Rate of Newcomers to Steem.

We have been discussing these ideas and suggestions among ourself the Steem Greeters team, @cmp2020 @kiwiscanfly @mariita52 together with other members in the @steemingcurators community such as @leveuf , @marcosdk , @girolamomarotta.
The Steemit Team has stated that they want to know from us on how we can explore ways of measuring progress on the retention of new accounts on our weekly reports.

We hope in those reports the Steem Greeters can explore ways of measuring progress on retention of new accounts.


We come up with these ideas as below:

Pro Minnow Achievement Program
Objectives of The Program:

  • Newcomers have basic knowledge on how to navigate steem ecosystem especially steemit platform.
  • Newcomers get support on their content for at least 6weeks from their mentors/the steem greeters that have been assigned to them.
  • At the end of the Pro Minnow program, newcomers will be awarded Pro Minnow verified badge and will continue to receive support for their content until they have at least 500sp author rewards on their account, with the condition of no power down, but they can withdraw their liquid steem payout.

Pro Minnow Achievement Program Curriculum

  • Steem Greeters will be assigned to at least 10 newcomers under their care and the newcomers would be given the task as below to complete at their own pace.
  • Each of the Steem Greeters will refer to these basic subjects that is necessary for the newcomers to complete and make a post about their understanding or review on the subject matters.
  • Steem Greeters are free to tweak their own curriculum according to their own style and creativity but still incorporate these basic elements into their own version Pro Minnow curriculum.

Basic Curriculum Template
[1] Basic security on Steem

  • Newusers make a post on what they understand about different keys on steem and how they plan to keep/put this key safely.
  • Newuser make a post on how to use each key for posting, transfer STEEM/SBD and power up their steem

[2] Basic rules on accepted content on steem. Explain about Steemit rules on plagiarism and copyright materials.

  • Newusers make a post about "Proof of Brain" concept as in Steem Bluepaper.

[3] Basic markdown and some advance markdown

  • Newusers try using all the markdown template on steemit and make a post with the templates

[4] Basic tools on steem

  • Newusers make a review post about basic tools on steem such as, , steemscan and etc.

How we Track their retention rate?
Here is the sample of how we steem greeters will record/track the retention progress of newcomers under our care for the minimum period of 6 weeks:

*Steem Greeters will provide a weekly report consists of these data on the tables until week 6 or until the newusers under their care complete all the tasks on their Pro Minnow curriculum. We are planning to continue to support their post until they reach minnow level of 500 steem power on their total author rewards.

Flow of Newusers coming into Steem Greeters Community

Step 1
Steem Greeters welcoming Newusers and suggest them to write their Verification Introduction Post then posted it into the Steem Greeters Community

  • at this stage Steem Greeters will explain to newusers what Steem Greeters Community is about, explain about Pro Minnow Program under Steem Greeters Team.
  • Steem greeters will give them link on sample template on how they do their verification Introduction post.

Step 2
After Newcomers submit their Verification Introduction Post to Steem Greeters Community, he/she will be assigned to one of the Steem Greeters team according to the language they speak/understand.

  • steem greeter introduce his/her own version of Pro Minnow Program to newusers under his/her care.

Step 3
Newusers and Steem Greeters start working together under the Pro Minnow Program.

  • newusers start completing all the task given by steem greeters
    *after complete all the tasks given in The Pro Minnow Program, newusers will receive Pro Minnow Verified Badge

Current Steem Greeters Team Status Progress

  1. Last week , we have discussed among ourselves in the @steemingcurators discord servers about the strategies on how to improve retention rate on newcomers, and also how to track their activities and retention progress on steemit.

  2. This week we present all the ideas and suggestions that we have discussed, which is this post itself.
    I posted this post here on our Steem Greeters Team Community that we have set up on steemit solely for our team members to post our weekly report and any task that we have for the newcomers under our care.
    We also have created Steem Greeters Community for newcomers and all-time steemian to post their contents here
    We will start putting the proposal into action after getting the feedback from The Steemit Team @steemitblog @steemcurator01

  3. Next week, we will get each other feedback on how the Pro Minnow Program working so far, the reception from the community, and come up with a resolution and improve any area that needs improvement.

I am looking forward to my other team members' @cmp2020 @kiwiscanfly @mariita52 final say on this proposal and also feedback from The Steemit Team @steemcurator01 @steemitblog so we can get these ideas into action soon. Thank you in advance for your kind cooperation.

Great work @cryptokannon. Steem POD project is ushering in a new caring perspective of the steem ecosystem for the newbies and the existing users that are still having Steem Power that is below 500sp.

I hope this plan is executed effectively. It will surely add value to the steem ecosystem.

@yohan2on thank you. I hope more dedicated steemian join us in the STEEM POD project. We need to convince steemit and Steem Community to compensate us with @steem.dao too so everyone in the team becomes more motivated and boosts their dedication to steem into the next great level.
