Sorry, I know I have been posting a lot and am clearly new to maidsafe and acting like an over-excited puppy (sure there have been many like me over the years), but I can’t stop thinking about how we can speed up our growth post launch.
I come from a marketing background (shame on me I know, but it would be nice to put those skills to good use for once); we came up with a few clever ideas back in the day that cost nothing but worked brilliantly.
It occurs to me that at least one these tricks might well apply here.
Why don’t we try to make use of people that are already famous and have a large following of people who would be immediately interested in something like safenetwork.
If we can organise just 10 or 20 of us from here to write emails to people like Russell Brand, Stephen Fry, Alex Jones (nutter, but big cult following) etc etc then I’m sure lots of these people with huge followings would do tweets about us or cover the safenetwork story in some way.
The mainstream will do all it can to ignore us, but that doesn’t mean we should ignore the machine of fame/celebrity it has cultivated if we can use it to our advantage.
Not really a topic for this month, but maybe soon and I think it’s a great idea to get people’s minds mulling over different cheap ways to spread the word about safenetwork without a real marketing budget to work with.
Imagine if we got Patrick Stewart or someone tweeting about SAFE, or Russell Brand bringing back a special episode of The Trews etc… this would do a hell of a lot more than the usual social media bomb between geeks in crypto imo
