The Importance Of Snackable Content

the importance of 'snackable' content.png

Over the past few weeks, I've been diving into some crypto projects that aren't on any blockchain per se...But have been giving me a glimpse into the future of basically....Everything online!

If you have been hanging around @LeoFinance for any amount of time, you'll know a big chunk of the creators here have discovered Noise.Cash

A slick little project backed by some massive supporters of Bitcoin Cash.

Yes, it's centralized and not only any blockchain...But it gives you a taste...A very exciting taste as to what will come from the LeoFinance team with their micro-blogging platform.

And while that's all fine and dandy...How do we transition from long form content that a lot of people n this blockchain are used to...Into bite sized 'snackable' content that really is...What the rest of the internet is used to...?

So that's a little graphic I created for ClickTrackProfit.com

(Note: Full image here if you need to blow it up)

If you are familiar with my core training platform, we're big on training our members into developing brands through content marketing and social media.

And yup, our training focuses on not only traditional social media...But the blockchains as well.

Specifically Hive, CTPtalk and of course...LeoFinance.

What is crystal clear to me after the past 2 weeks of messing around with Noise.Cash is that when Leo launches their micro-blogging project...The old guard better watch out!

The speed and micro-content that makes sites like Twitter and Instagram household names...Will then be coming to the blockchain.

So it's important for content creators and social media marketers to get READY for the changing of the guard.

We must take all the practices we used on traditional social media and start bringing it to these new platforms.

Simply put, this is just the beginning of the influx of potential users we will see. We are literally at the beginning of this.

My issue with why the mainstream never caught onto Hive immediately is that...The majority of the 'every day user' isn't going to sit around and read long form content 24/7....

But they will scan their phones....

They will 'like' things on the go.

They'll engage with super short video clips.

They will DEVOUR snackable content.

So my recommendation to you content creators on the blockchain....Gear up!!!

The masses will be coming, especially with all the drama surrounding censorship on the traditional platforms....

And we need to be ready :)

Some tips and tools:

  • Use Canva.com - If you are not a Photoshop pro, using an online tool like Canva is priceless. Remember, for snackable content it's got to capture people's attentions. Graphics do that!

  • Practice on crypto based platforms like Noise.Cash and even Torum. While they are not in the Hive eco-system you will be blown away at the results you can get while attracting them to follow you over here.

  • Remember, snackable content means....Short. Sweet. To the point.

  • Engage to every single person who responds to you! I cannot stress this enough...Do the @taskmaster4450 500 comment challenge if you don't believe me!

  • And don't try to create a masterpiece...Snackable content is what we call 'flow' content. Designed to keep you top of mind on social platforms and remind people you are someone they should follow. But it should never be an attempt at a Pulitzer Prize!

Hope this helps!

And I hope you are as excited as I am for the future of social media on the blockchain....

You hit the nail on the head here. #ProjectBlank is going to bring the type of content style/engagement that exists on these new platforms (which are ironically non-blockchain compatible) to Hive - the best content-oriented blockchain in the world.

ProjectBlank introduces a radical new way to create content - it's unlike any other form of content creation that exists on Hive and it's all made possible by a unique data structure that we developed. I can't wait to unveil the project :)

Reading this just makes me not to wait more . I hope it rolls out soon .

Many of my Twitter addict friends are shifting to noise cash and once microblogging comes into effect , we can bring them here.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's what tells me of how much of a NEED and market for what LEO is bringing....The crypto industry is begging for a Twitter-esque platform.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Man...To say I'm excited to get my hands into #ProjectBlank would be the understatement of the year.

Can't wait for it!

We'll do a whole training module on it to and stick it into CTP...Get more people from outside the blockchain space taking a strong look at this stuff.

Exciting times!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Awesome! We’ll need to spread the message far and wide when it launches, so that will be a huge help :)

Hopefully, LeoInfra V3 will also launch around the same time. This will mean lite accounts via Google, Facebook and Emil as well.

Onboarding the masses, here we come!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Brilliant stuff man. Looking forward to seeing this all play out :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I'm so excited about microblogging thing and I think Noise Cash is giving a very good idea of what is coming to us.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

If it's anything remotely like Noise.Cash....We will be laughing!

What a win it will be!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It reminds me of DtubeSnap.

I strongly believe that LeoFinance is the Crypto Twitter 2.0

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah man!!!

It's going to change so much...So excited for it and I know you are too!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Oh dear, sorry for being late to the party ^^

Noise.cash is doing quite fine with its incentive mechanism. I believe that we need a couple of more projects to be able to create a "real" crypto twitter to attract thousands of people :)

#Projectblank is going to be huge and I hope the snackable content platforms kill the old-school central ones ^^

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's what I think too...The ability for LEO to onboard users, the simplicity of it, and then the fact it's already on a blockchain...Makes Project Blank....Pretty much a sure bet!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

You really captured this theme awesomely. I agree with all your points as raised in your infographic. It's interesting that with projectBlank on leoFinance, Hive would be joining the league of microblogging platforms but with much more potentials as it is fully decentralized.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's the kicker right there...All these platforms are cool...But centralized.

On Hive and LEO....It'll be decentralized. And that's powerful!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I am adapting to this snacking thing hahaha.

but I don't know if you have noticed but noise.cash has fallen and has been like this all day.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Hmmm been working for me?

Actually started tipping out of my BCH wallet instead of the free tips.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Very nice image. It really does condense what you generally say into an easy way to remember. That 500 comment challenge seems like a huge hurdle. I think I think I am doing about 20-30 comments a day or so right now as that is about how fast my RC recovery rate can keep up with (along with the other Dapps I use). I do gain some HP everyday so that amount can slowly go up over time.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It'll start to compound and before you know it, RC's won't be an issue at all.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

My issue with why the mainstream never caught onto Hive immediately is that...The majority of the 'every day user' isn't going to sit around and read long form content 24/7....

I totally agree with this. Who wants to read 500 word posts today? People want to be entertained and fill the minutes they have at disposition. When I'm waiting in my car for my kids after their sports training, what do I do? Do I read hive posts on my phone? No I check my noise.cash account and look for the red bell :-)

Exactly.

Time and place for everything...But generally, people have the attention span of gold fish LOL

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Okay, okay... I've heard enough about noise.cash now. I'm going... I'm going! lol

I like to concoct little linguistic brews anyway-- and Twitter pisses me off-- so it seems to be right up my alley. Great read, by the way. Thanks for the nudge. :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

LOL Thanks for the comment.

Yeah it's such an awesome example of what LEO's version is going to become...Very excited to see it all unfold!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

So what will become of long form content? I'm having a hard time envisioning how it'll all fit without one stealing the relevance of the other, ...

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I think there is a time and place for it all.

For example, Medium has built a massive platform based on long form.

But the every day user, I feel, embraces short form much more.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

True that. Thanks

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

One reason why I stopped creating daily content on Hive was that it simply took me too much time, because I'm not a natural writer, and what a natural writer takes half an hour or an hour to write, it takes me few to several hours. That's not very productive!

I have a feeling the short form content LeoFinance is prepping might be better suited for me at times, although I won't 'blank' many times a day like it's probably customary on such platforms.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I think it's going to shock the world and really get people looking at blockchain as a viable social media platform.

Very excited to see it!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Snackable content is a variation of our "show up every day" principle. !WINE

It really is...It helps people get to know you, and shows them you are someone they should follow and engage with!

What is crystal clear to me after the past 2 weeks of messing around with Noise.Cash is that when Leo launches their micro-blogging project...The old guard better watch out!

It's a really exciting development for sure. I think the most exciting thing is having people who were too afraid or lazy to post a long blog be willing to participate on the platform now that they can just post whatever is on their mind. If this proves to be a success then I'm hoping the microblogging will expand to other topics besides crypto/finance.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That...Is a huge point!!

Something we train people on is to embrace that when they first start out...Their content wont be that good!

So it's important to plug into a community that encourages you, and supports your growth. Using snackable content helps you grow and get better!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Oh yeah, it helped a lot. And I am glad I bumped into this
I have been using Canva.com for a little while now so that wouldn't be a problem I think.
And this noise. cash of a thing is a place I haven't yet tried out but I was hoping to give it a try. Feel it's too much for me to handle or juggle around all these places with quality engagement but I will really try my best if ever I find myself over there.

And 500 comment challenge is not a problem to me :) it flows with varying contents and my mood at a particular time lol.
I really cannot wait for microblogging here and #projectblank is gonna be the best so far on the blockchain. Looking forward to it.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Project Blank is going to be absolutely epic.

I'm just testing the waters on some of these other platforms, getting ready for the big reveal!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It sure gonna be and we can't wait :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Great post! Exactly what I've been thinking all along!

Most people can't focus long enough to read a longer post and neither have the time for it.

I'm so freaking excited for the LeoFinance team to release the micro-blogging platform :)

It is going to be epic.

If they do it right, it'll change everything!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I'm so looking forward for more "snackable" contents here.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Best kind of content to keep you and your name...Top of mind :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Let's have it !
Everyone is always up for quick fixes!
This would be so much fun..I anticipate

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Agreed :)

This is going to be great!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

We are ever ready for more !

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I have to admit I was pretty surprised how good this snackable content thing is working.
I never was into conventional social media, I despise Twitter, so I really didn't see it coming. But those short posts, quick interactions, and so on, are way better suited to build connections and expand your network than I would have ever imagined. I now have 244 followers on the platform and this really helps tremendously with promoting my content!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

244! Wow!

See my argument is...generating 244 followers on traditional social media is a lot harder...On something like noise Cash, you can reach it and stick out before the crowds notice...Which helps you generate much more loyal followers and engagement!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That is a pretty awesome infographic you created. I love making them for my end users and I love using Canva. It is such a sweet program. I am lucky that I get the full version because I am an educator. I am super excited about the possibilities that micro blogging on Leo are going to bring for me.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah it's a great tool. I'm not the best designer and know nothing about photoshop....So it works for me perfectly :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

oh wow, this is fantastic ! I just came over from Twitter 2 days ago. I think many of my friends would like a faster paced , shorter "snack" sized blogging format. Keep us posted.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Awesome to have you onboard the blockchain :)

Leo is going to crush it when this thing gets released!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

glad to be a semi early bird , hopefully I'll be up to speed on everything soon

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Welcome to Hive and LeoFinance! You came a great time. It's early and we expect lots if growth ahead.

@tipu curate

Thanks so much for the tip :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

In short, BUY MORE LEO, LEOM and LEOMM :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

LOL Yessir!

I think at the current prices, it's still a bargain.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Wow, I am wowed at this and surprised at how fast Noise.Cash and Torum are growing but I don't know why I find it difficult to engage in that site. I have abandoned my account for about one month or so since I opened it but I can't seem to find my way around.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

We did a quick little lesson on Noise.Cash inside of Start Earning Today

We will be doing one on Torum and LEO's micro blogging platform in the future too :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

This is so thoughtful of you. Okay, I just clicked the link you just sent me and I will be so happy to get inolved in the future.

Thank you.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It's been a pleasure following you on your journey to all of the new internet properties. You enrich everyone around you as long as they take action!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Appreciate you man, thanks very much for the kind words :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Great tips jon.

Engage to every single person who responds to you! I cannot stress this enough...Do the @taskmaster4450 500 comment challenge if you don't believe me

This is what I am trying to do :) it got me into top 10 commentors but I am not satisfied yet.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Crushing it!!!

Well done man. Never be satisfied, it keeps ya growing each day :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Well believe me I wouldn't be commenting if it weren't for some people , you are one among those :) Can't thank you enough.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Very nice and informative post. I can say must read for content creator.

Thank you kindly!

Hope it helps a lot of people on their journey!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

yummy :)

The tastiest LOL

For some reason, this whole 'snackable' thing is hard for me. When I post something, for me to consider it a "value" to the reader, I need to teach them something or remind them of something they may have forgotten in order to be in a better position than before they digested the content. I am starting to come around, but it is a new paradigm with its associated learning curves.

We've got that Inner Circle session firing up in about.....2 minutes. I'll touch on that tonight ;)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

What a great point you got here! I feels this is so true! Today people looks for faster content, faster to consume, but always present. It is not an easy taks to keep it nice clean and short while passing the complex messages that you want.

Man, nice post!
