We Present to you our Brand New Project - SteemAlive Marketplace!

in SteemAlive3 months ago (edited)



We are really excited to present to you a brand new Project from the SteemAlive ccommunity again. This Project is called SteemAlive Marketplace. The name gave away some idea about what it is. SteemALive marketplace is created as the missing link between sellers and potential sellers. With this project, our members would find it easy to source goods and services locally, thereby growing and strengthen business relationships with steem as the common currency.

When we did our class yesterday and explained how this project would run, almost everyone in the class were super excited. Here are 3 reasons why such a local market within the community is long overdue.


We need a Marketplace - here are 3 reasons for that

There could be many reasons why the community has been waiting for this kind of project. They are as follows:

1. A place to Buy and Sell: This is the basic reason why this project was created - a place where buyers can source local products/services. SteemAlive continues to grow in numbers everyday. We are perhaps the largest collection of Nigerians on Steemit. Each person has a career, or trade which they are into. Besides creating content and publishing on their page, they all engage in some form of business. For example, the community have fashion designers, artist, graphics designers, nurses, Engineers, Traders, entrepreneurs, etc. All these various trades and professions need customers. They all need a place to promote their business and make actually sales to local consumers. That is one reason we need the marketplace.

So verified members of SteemAlive community would have the opportunity to promote their goods, services or even sell their skill. Instead of getting such goods or services from elsewhere, members can support each other through purchasing of goods or hiring of services from other members. In this way, the marketplace would be a thriving local economy for where potential buyers and sellers meet.

SteemALive marketplace could also be a tool in marketing small businesses locally and encouraging them to join Steemit. If they see that there is a large community of potential customers, they would be happy and willing to join the platform. We hope to gradually build this project and eventually use it as tool to attract both individuals and businesses to the platform.

2. A place where steem can be used a real currency: We have been thinking about making steem a currency that can be used as a means of exchange for goods and services. We believe strongly that if many people use steem as a currency, it will be great thing for its overall existence and mass adoption.

As we launch the marketplace today, the main currency will be steem. Prices of Goods and services will be listed in Steem. All transactions will happen in steem. This will help grow a local economy that holds and transacts steem as a currency. One good thing that will come out from a project like this is that more people would become aware of the Steem project. Additionally, members would no longer have to sell their steem or even power down frequently since they can still pay for goods n=and services direct with the steem currency. As part of our plans, we will bring out incentives to reward community members that starts transacting in Steem.

A Place for Career Profiling: Like we indicated earlier, many SteemALive members are either into business or experts in one professional field or the other. Currently, its not see easy to see at what glance what anyone does. There is no single page or database where we can go to see the career profile of members. This marketplace project will solve that issue. We will run a career profile database where all members can have their business or career profiles listed. There will be many benefits to this type of database.

A career profile database will make it easy for members to network and make job recommendations. If someone is in need of a fashion designer, Legal Services, Artist, Builder, Phone Technician, engineer, Trader, Electrician, etc, It will be easy to Open a page and see the career information of members. Also, this database will make it easy for members to identify other members that are in the same career part with them. As such, it will be easier for them to work together on Steem Projects. It can even be easy to create great business relationships as members get to know each other well professionally.


How the Marketplace will Run?

  1. We will Select a particular day of the week to Open the market. On that day, we make a post and encourage members to drop a link of their own advert posts for goods and Services they are ready to sell. As members drop the links, buyers will be able to see the brief product description and then they can visit the link for more details. A business transaction is thus initiated. At the end of the week, we will make a Done Deals post to show some transactions

  2. Since we have know each other personally, the deals can happen P2P. That means the buyer and seller can do the transactions directly after the seller has ordered the goods or Services. They are free to use pay on delivery or pay after delivery to do the trade.

  3. If their would be need to provide escrow, @steemalive can be used as the escrow. The Escrow is the middle man. Its job is to collect and hold the funds from the seller and then instructs the seller to send the goods. After the buyer confirms receiving the goods, escrow will then release the funds to the buyer.


SteemAlive Marketplace Standards

  1. We will only accept quality goods and services. Please make that what you offer in the market has high quality. Customer Satisfaction is very important.

  2. You product Description and Pricing should be detailed and competitive. In the case of sending goods through courier, the seller can include the cost of shipping in the final price of the goods or negotiate with the buyer to agree on shipping costs.

  3. We will provide a rating service at the end of the week to enable buyers show us their level of satisfaction with the seller and product.

  4. We will try as much as possible to avoid trade disputes. Make sure that your terms and conditions if any are clearly included in your product discription. SteemAlive together with City Coordinators of the transacting parties involved in a trade dispute will try to resolve such disagreements

  5. We will prefer all transactions to happen in any of the Steem blockchain currencies - Steem, SBD and Tron. So product listing should ideally happen in Steem. The prices of goods and services could be altered to reflect the local fiat value of Steem.


SteemAlive Marketplace FAQs

  1. Who can join the marketplace?
    Answer: Only verified SteemALive Members.

  2. How many Products advert posts can I make weekly?
    Answer: Just 1 post. You can list all the products or services you offer.

  3. Can I accept other currencies like fiat or Bitcoin?
    Answer: We prefer only Steem currencies as this project is aimed at using Steem as a means of exchange locally. Other currencies can still be considered as the last option.

  4. How will customers find me?
    Answer: We will promote the marketplace in our community and help you find customers. We will also run social media promotions in the nearest future to bring in buyers locally

  5. Can I list goods that are out of stock?
    Answer: No. Only list goods and services that are available.

  6. What kind of goods/ Services are allowed in the marketplace?
    **Answer: All goods and services that are legal and healthy can be listed. However, banned substances like Marijuana and health risky goods like Cigarettes' and others are not allowed.

  7. How am I sure I wont loose my money?
    Answer: Only Verified members of the community will be allowed in the marketplace. Please make sure you are active in your City Group as we will consult City Coordinators during verification.

  8. What if I have other questions not listed here?
    Answer: Drop your question as a comment on this post. We will attend to it.


How do I Join the Marketplace?

  1. We will Make a Career/Business Profiling Post where all interested participants would be listed.
  2. Running this project would require your support. Kindly donate at least 1 Steem to @safunds as a way to support the project. Your Memo should be Marketplace Support. The Funds would be used to Promote the Marketplace.
  3. We will make a Post of Verified buyers and include your name.

You are then free to participate in the marketplace.


Career/Business Profiling Template

Here is a template of How your Career or Business Profiling data should look:

  1. Profile Picture (Optional but important)
  2. Name
  3. Location
  4. Career/Profession/Occupation
  5. Services Offered (In one paragraph)



Note: Drop your Career Profile as a comment on this post.



Just like any of our Projects, we are really eager to see more activity and use of Steem as a currency in the marketplace. We may not have all the dynamics available now, but we are really eager to kick this project off in this way. Improvements will surely come as time progresses.

We thank everyone that supported and will support this idea. We are grateful to our City Coordinators, members, the Steemit Team and the entire Steemit Team.

Thanks for your nice words. Lets push it forward together! @ojerindjoel

Yes, together we wax stronger.

A great initiative from @steemalive the brainchild of @focusnow.

This program makes sense as it would give rise to buying & selling in the SteemAlive community as well as promoting the use of Steem, SBD and Tron as the currency to use. This action in turn gives these crypto currencies much power because there would be so much value attached to it.

Also this initiative creates much needed awareness to Steemit platform and SteemAlive community in general.

Thank you for trying to push this platform up with your welcoming ideas.

@theopportunist. We appreciate your kind words. Hopefully, this project would even drive the mass adoption of Steem locally. Lets do it.
