Why aren't influencers promoting Byte?

Not a lot of people know about Byte yet. A good amount do but not the amount that I expected. Why aren’t influceners talking about it? Or promoting it? Do you think they will but in the next month or so? Lets talk :slight_smile:

Byte promotion is not a bad idea, maybe it’s because it’s not out yet. But I’d say that it’s a good idea

Or maybe they don’t need to bc they are already successful and doing well. Some might not care bc it wont benefit them in any way. Who knows?

They probably will promote it straight away it’s out and they’ve had a go

Well I just think that big influencers won’t waste time to promote talk about something that is not out yet.

This doesn’t mean that they are not aware of the app , they are but they are just waiting for the right opportunity for them to mention it.

So not a big issue so far :slight_smile:

Byte was announced a bit of time ago, and not too far into major news headlines or anything. Also, it might not fit the context of their video at all if they just boot in “Hey guys checc out this cool app coming out”, although i doubt some will care. Either way, not enough exposure i think, and i’m pretty sure some people still know it as vlne 2 so that’s a rip

Why would they promote an app not even out yet?? Not even in the beta stage yet!!!

From the time it was v2, until postponement, we were told it was in very limited alpha. Any “influencers” may not have it, or may not be able to talk about having it.

Let’s not forget that influencers have more concern for their online presence (which is basically their career). There are people talking about it, it’s just very segmented and brief (not including the peeps on here).

Things take time. This forum last year apparently had only thousands of members and now it has well over 15k and growing. Won’t be surprised if by the end of next year it reaches a 100k just on this forum alone. People are more hyped for this than people think

most of the time i hear them still referring the app as “vine.2”

Can’t promote something that isn’t finished. But people are talking about it tho.

Yeah, people really aren’t talking about it. I could’ve, but I have a reaaaalllyyy small audience present

We had Gary Vee mention V2 very briefly early last year, Sara Dietschy (with Sam Sheffer) about a few months after him, Sam again over the last month or so, and David Dobrik mentioned it on his podcast once or twice between last year and now. People are talking about it, but these were people/places that only mentioned it briefly (and ironically, since I didn’t expect it or look for it); and like I mentioned, they had their own thing going on when they addressed the app…

If you’re referring to them providing more in-depth info about Byte, what they plan on doing when it releases or vice versa, then that’s a separate topic (one that has been addressed frequently and completely here and in the discord)
