Do you need to be a beautiful lady to get votes on Steemit?
Well... the day I joined Steemit and went to chat with members, someone told me I had to be pretty woman as the first and foremost requirement. Otherwise one would need 100,000 SP to do well on the platform.
I was confused, upset, and tried not to believe. But soon after realized the harsh realities when I got $0.01 a post and even $0.00 in succession.
Now after being here for six months, I have a mixed opinion when I see some 'beauties' struggling and a few whales doing worse than some with far less SP.
So, what exactly helps you get the value for the time and effort you spend on Steemit?
We would all agree it is a combination of factors - good contents, 'strategic' contacts, high SP, and yes we men love to vote (and impress!) ladies especially if the photo is pleasing to the eyes. :)
I may do a split test to check the type of writing that reap maximum rewards when I can squeeze in time. But again that would help only if the viewers actually read the contents.
But how many of us read anyone's post from the start to finish? Be honest. Skimming past is easy!
