Who can tell us if we are getting much in the way of traffic and or any actual interested technical folks coming in from these flyers? Would be great to know.

Hello @goindeep , with the next update, I will also post visit data on the Bulgarian site.

In the forum we have one registered confirmed: Introduce yourself - #660 by Simo

But it is still important to note how poster advertising works. When people see something new for the first time, they usually consider it nonsense. Even the most brilliant of us tend to be wrong for things that never existed before, see this post by David regarding bitcoin What’s up today? - #644 by dirvine

So at first the new is rejected. But then you see a second poster for the SAFE Network - Alpha 3 version, later for Alpha 4, and you think “I know this… let me look again”…

And one day you will see poster “Earn money with the free resources on your computer on the SAFE Network!”. But this time it will not be something new for you and you will check it out… I hope :stuck_out_tongue:

So perseverance is important, discipline is important, this is a game of numbers. Maybe it will take years before we see big growth, but it is important that one does what he believes and I believe in the future of the SAFE Network!

Not with an “all out massive action” > direct marketing, offline > online, approach.

That’s what direct marketing is for , time compression , so you end up with a big footprint/network effect in 2-5 years, rather than 10 years, to decades with traditional (still highly valuable and needs to be done) methods alone.

And (as you say) just wait until we can dangle “The Carrot(s)” in front of people, with
so many opportunities stemming from farming/ App development it will make peoples heads spin round and round like a helicopter.

Maidsafe and community marketing + Direct Marketing = Energy = Take the market away, quickly.

I will definitely be joining in.
Thanks for all the great effort, taking it to the streets! :sunglasses:

Do you think it is reasonable to infer that you are receiving about a 59% hit rate from your poster placement efforts? I would say that is pretty impressive.

The hit rate is 100% :smiley: the site has been online for 2 years, but no one visited it before the posters…
Thanks to them even 3 people joined the facebook group https://www.facebook.com/SafeNetworkBulgaria/

Maybe we should all be doing this.

There are agencies in the UK that will distribute leaflets in local newspapers delivered door to door… does sometimes depend upon whether the newspaper boy decided to dump them in a skip or not.

Wanted you to know that bubble headed sponsored media anchors in the US use that phrase “boots on the ground” incessantly to market profiteering pre-emptive wars of agression.

Its got a kind of implicit condescending sneer that is off the scale. I hate it. It generally depicts in my mind the US raiding a ‘3rd’ world nation from the air to save the habitants from their natural resources. And implies that this is expected and therefore accepted. Anyone that has been a boot on the ground may understand.

Hi @NaturaLogic you can see this topic :wink: (and of course if you can send a small donation to them):

I’m sorry about this @Warren, I did not know…

Don’t feel bad though, a lot of us didn’t know USA people felt that way or took it that way. I had heard it used that way by some in the USA but didn’t see it as a universal thing, but just a term to say going out to do a job involving walking etc.
