Documentary

People reaching out does not necessarily mean they like doing it.

I have thought a lot about the angle ST can be marketed where the message is honest and raw. I can not think of anything better than a documentary angle. A documentary can be split up into small video clips ads with different messages.

There are people who come to you on their own to see what you are giving away. Some of them ask for additional information too :wink:

Perhaps I’ve done too much people watching in my life but generally the response to someone handing out papers is:

  1. Walk past the person and say nothing
  2. Walk past and say no thanks
  3. Take paper, read quick and throw it in next trash can
  4. Take paper and read it

50/50 someone looks at it and almost never does someone fight a guy handling out pamphlets, it’s just not a provoking sort of action, especially if you’re doing it as passively as he is.

Theres huge value in just documenting it alone, even without any marketing angle.

I mean, imagine if when the internet or the www was being put together, that they had documented all their efforts, motivations, and future predictions on video. I would be so interesting and useful to look back on now!

Exactly! That’s what I would do if the flyer or a poster behind you looked interesting. Just don’t walk out in front of me or call my phone without me asking you to do so.

I realize some, especially old and lonely people, even like telemarketers. It’s just that I don’t. And the fact that I’ve never beaten up an advertiser is not proof that I like them or that they give me a positive picture of their product. I like the Mexican way much more than I like the Indian way in this respect.

I understand what you are telling me, I will try not to hand out flyers around your island :sascha:

Here is an idea - make more of the test net release. Instead of just a forum post, why not go on chat, maybe voice and/or video too. Capture the moment and whip up enthusiasm at the same time.

Sharing files, sending payments, starting nodes, etc. All so much fun the first time!

I will add that Telegram has conference calls, we can create a voice channel from there to connect to a live stream :dragon:

Maybe so in Finland, handing out flyers like this is common in Bulgaria.

Finland is a peaceful country and people are generally pretty shy. Being common doesn’t mean it’s popular with everybody.

Yeah, I get your point. Just wanted to point out that Dimitar’s boots on the ground approach is not outlandish for his part of the world. Can’t be said for all places of course, looks like it’s a definite no no in the UK or other anti free-speech places.

Whereas in others it is popular:

I personally don’t mind people handing out / offering flyers (without them jumping in front of me).

This has nothing to do with free speech or legality. When in Rome, do as the Romans do, and all that. All I’m saying is that I don’t like e-mail spam, my phone ringing and somebody wanting to sell me something, or people forcing me to walk around them or even keep repeating “No, thank you.” all the time.

Now I may be the odd one out living alone on an island with some chickens, but I too exist.

I’m completely with you here.

Agreed. Even if I don’t want the info I always respect the hustle!

It’s fairly common in the UK.
It was the content in the flyers IMO in the case in that video, even the guy fined says so.
If you don’t upset ppl it won’t be an issue, just need to be respectful.
