A lot of positive ideas, activities and acts of generosity have been popping up around Homesteaders Co-op this last week. Among which we have been blessed with the love and generosity shown to us by our big sister community @naturalmedicine, led by @riverflows.
Those of us steemians that have been around for a while know that one of the reasons many of us stay in steem is because of our communities, aka tribes. Steem allows us to freely and naturally form and group together in tribes, satisfying one of our basic human needs.
Onboarding and Communities
One of our goals in Homesteaders Co-op, and also outlined in our Fundition project plan, is onboarding new steem members via Homesteaders Co-op. Now that we have a solid base in our online marketplace technology we are shifting gears to put more emphasis into marketing and onboarding via our community co-op.
In our last fundition update we spoke about our new logo design by @frejafri (vendor in our community marketplace and talented illustrator) who helped us create this design that will part of our first impression to steem and the rest of the world! This branding is crucial in crafting an image for our marketplace of steem humans.
Following the design of our new logo, @riverflows stepped in to create a video to promote our Homesteaders Co-op both within steem but also outside of steem. Being a contributing author of the Homesteaders Co-op blog and closely connected with many of our vendors, she is very aware of our co-op’s mission, qualities and ethics.
@crosheille describes the video:
Wow this video gave me an emotional high, like seriously! Seeing all of the beautiful, natural homegrown and homemade items almost got me teary eyed. THIS is what we need more of. Knowing I can go to a marketplace to buy wholesome things for my family just makes acquiring Steem and Sbd even more worthwhile! @homesteaderscoop is gonna change the game! I hope everyone gets with it and joins in to support their efforts!
This is the type of reaction that steemians are having when they see our new promotional video, this is the type of reaction folks have when they get to know Homesteaders Co-op’s vision, mission and ethics.
This video says it all
@riverflows is a crucial member of Homesteaders Co-op community and she is the leader of @naturalmedicinecommunity. It is really perfect actually that both Homesteaders Co-op and Natural Medicine came together in the production of this video.
To have this video made as a result of two communities connecting, reciprocating, sharing, inspiring and gifting one another creates a positive intention which we can carry forward.
The intention of love is imbued in this video and will carry forward in our message to the world. And this is the message that we want to send to folks about our favorite communities on steem.
