If you visit Steemit (without logging in), you can read the following (the current marketing) under every blog post:
"Authors get paid when people like you upvote their post.
If you enjoyed what you read here, create your account today and start earning FREE STEEM!"
"Sign up. Get STEEM!"
I think that Steemit should not have been and should not be marketed with the money earning opportunity. Or at least not in this form/way. Saying "start earning FREE STEEM" is very bad. It is not free. People put either a lot of time and effort to create content to earn Steem, or they put money investments in it. Either way, everyone is invest something into Steem. So, I think that this marketing is very bad for Steemit in every aspect, and this marketing is attracting mostly the selfish and the greedy people. You can see it in the statistics. Nowadays most of the users are focusing only on their own blog posts, but they do not care about other people's posts. Nowadays there are 30-32 000 daily active users, 40 000+ posts per day, but the average number of comments is only around/about three. And most of those comments are bot, bot-like, spam, spam-like comments. The majority of the posts are either overlooked or ignored. There are too many writers/content creators, but almost no readers/content consumers. This results in a lot of disappointed users, who left (and still leaving) Steemit and the Steem blockchain. Maybe if only Ned Scott would have been dealt with Steemit's marketing decently, things might have been different... Do you agree?
