SOMETIMES QUALITY IS NOT ENOUGH.



Unsplash​​​

When it comes to goods and services, everyone chooses quality over quantity. When it comes to social media, quality is key as context is the new content. We know this, we have heard it said so many times but then what truly is a quality post?



The word "Quality" is relative. A lot of us misconstrue it to mean lengthy posts and big grammar. Quality can mean anything to anybody. Quality can mean lengthy post to one and a short post that is comprehensible to another. When i talk about short posts, I am not talking about two line post. That's a classical example of a low quality post. We all have different writing skills and different niches. 



As far as uptrennd algorithm is concerned, quality post is a content that your target audience will enjoy and engage with. Quality content is a content that is easy to understand, entertaining, informative, interesting, thought provoking and helpful.



Engagement is what we all seek. On uptrennd, engagement translates to upvotes, comments and criticism either negative or positive. The upvotes gets you the points, the comments gets you on trennding page giving you more audience and more followers. It is all we desire so we sit at our table and put in 3 hours making a post and yet the upvotes do not measure up then we get frustrated. It can be frustrating I know. 



But then, it is not enough to write a quality post. There are some principles and guidelines you must follow. 



How catchy is your title? 

Your post title is the click bait. This is what people see and decide if a post is worth reading or not. You may have written a beautiful post but if you use a boring title, no one might actually get to read it. Don't forget an upvote doesn't mean your post was read, the comments tell you better. 



Nature of your content:

On uptrennd, most users are not patient enough to read a long post. If you have built a faithful followership, you can write anything no matter how long and have people read it but if you are a new member without a followership, keep your quality posts moderate and simple. This will ensure people actually read it. How relevant your content is can only be known through reading. Consider spending more time creating posts that will be relevant to users as a newbie. Don't write on topics you are not passionate about because it will be boring to the readers because a writer's passion can be felt in his or her words. 



Sell your brand

On uptrennd your selflessness and unselfishness is what determines your growth. You can write quality post all you want but if you don't interact then your posts will keep getting low votes. You can't just come drop three posts and go to sleep expecting to get high votes the next day. Do you sell your brand? You need people to know you. You need to be a familiar name on uptrennd so when people see your posts they will have a reason to check it out. This is done through engaging with others on their posts. How often do you comment on others posts or attend activities on telegram to get noticed? How much time do you give to uptrennd that you expect amazing results? 



Longevity

You made a quality post and it attracted the guardians and you got the high votes and expect it will always be that way whereas you have lots of comments on your post without a single upvote from you and a single reply. How does this retain the little audience you have built? You can't put in half-assed efforts and expect to get amazing results. It is better to build relationship and trust with your audience. Remember, your growth is in their hands. The guardians will not always be there. 



I know there are still some of us who do all this but still don't get the votes. Don't give up. Keep doing it. Like I will always say, it takes just one post to skyrocket you and shine the light on you. You may never which post that might be. If your posts aren't getting the much desired votes then perhaps it is time to post less and engage more. 



Keep creating amazing contents and giving quality engagement. I wish us all the best.

when this happens it converts the quality creators to just being like other upvote farmers. They also don't want to write more for nothing

I am in this category too 😭 I get downvotes unnecessarily, sometimes my quality posts won't be upvotes 🤔 I get 3 upvotes in some of my post, 😩 and lastly after trying to come up with a post and browse more to put yourself through it is assumed that you copied and 100points is being deducted... IT'S UNFAIR 😔

I guess the reason is people just find a way to earn money rather than focussing on quality thing.

Mr afzaal this matter is not of viewing the post this is the matter of upvotes in 5 minute you can check your post must be 70 views but only 10 to 12 upvotes so upvotes are more important then views

I was anxiously awaiting the end and you nailed it... Alot of people are not strong enough to hold on to the frustration, I've seen quality post with scanty upvote and low quality with good upvote. I think uptrennd should find a way to curb this
