Tips and Tricks for earning more GEMS

LYKA is a social media app that combines the concepts of photo and video sharing, community, and e-commerce. However, what makes it distinct is their GEMs (Giftcard in Electronic Mode)– this is a form of virtual currency that is generated in the app’s system. Practically every action you take on the app, be it creating content or rating (liking) content, will earn you a corresponding amount of GEMs. These GEMs can then be used to purchase goods and services online and in-store at partner merchants, or be given as gifts to friends.

Now that we know what they are and what we can do with them, here are a few quick tips to get you started on your quest for GEMs!

Post regularly

Posting alone can already earn you 0.05 GEMs. Moreover, the more content you have the more GEMs you can have because it’s what gives people something to rate and help you earn. When you don’t put out content, people have nothing to rate.

One more thing to note: while you might feel the urge to post lots and lots of content every day to pool GEMs, know that LYKA actually limits your posting to ten images or videos per day– this not only helps avoid spam on the platform, it also ensures that each post is made mindfully and is of good quality.

Placing relevant tags on your posts

This helps the community find content that is in line with the interests that they have. This being said, labeling your content with the relevant tag ensures that the people who see your content are people who searched for it and are interested in it, thus increasing the likelihood of them appreciating and rating them, earning you GEMs.

Support people in the community

Communities are also important to LYKA. Build a community by finding people with similar interests. Follow those whose content you find interesting, and build relationships with them through interactions– follow them, like, and comment on their posts to let them know you have interests in common. They might just do the same for you.

Rating other people’s posts earn you 0.02 GEMs, while you can earn anywhere from 0.01 to 0.05 GEMs depending on what rating they give your posts. Occasionally, some users might even give you an Ultra Rating– these cost more than your regular GEM ratings and vary in value depending on the giver.

Explore and discover your interests

LYKA prides itself in being a platform filled with quality content, so it is no doubt a great way to explore your interests. Visit your discover tab and uncover a world of wonder by looking up anything under the sun that might interest you. This is a good way to find people with the same interests as you and see what they have to share. From here, you can rate posts and earn GEMs as you go!

Another way to explore is to find merchants nearby (also from your discover tab) and find various points of interests like restaurants, leisure services, and other retailers who are LYKA partners. It’s a good idea to follow the places you find relevant to you, as merchants sometimes host GEM giveaways on the platform. 

Invite other people to get onboard the LYKA App

Help grow the community! Cross-post your LYKA content on other social media platforms and direct people to the app. Encourage them to join and become part of the community. Because the more people there are on the platform, the more people there will be to create content we can all appreciate and rate– which of course, means more GEMs for everybody.

The LYKA app is available on Google Play and the App Store.
