MaidSafe Marketing Strategy H1 2018

This is all excellent news. I love the academy idea, especially when it focusses on farming; because people have questions about how exactly that will be done, and what resources they will need to gather, and when they should be prepared to farm, etc.

Great work!

Excellent to read what is planned in this regard.

Have you thought about what should happen to the wiki? I think it either needs a more or less complete overhaul since it still contains a lot of outdated information and it is missing a lot of information or it should be taken down.

@frabrunelle and a couple of others still made some changes, but it should be aligned with the overall strategy since it shows up very high in the search results.

Feel free to reach out to me to discuss how you want to go forward with this.

PS: Although I haven’t posted on the forum in quite some time, I haven’t lost interest, quite the opposite :wink:

@dugcampbell Absolutely spot on. You have nailed pritty much everything that needed to be addressed in my opinion.

With the focus on SafeNetwork instead of MaidSafe does it not make more sense to redesign and push safenetwork.org ?
Surely having maidsafe.net as the new sparkling all singing all dancing website is going to keep promoting what is meant to be avoided.

Must be something obvious that I am missing?

Good point and maybe @dugcampbell can look into this

Guys, voting starts tomorrow.

To start 2018 MaidSafe Marketing off right, I put all 3 of my current MaidSafe marketing & community outreach proposals together into one,

and it ends up still costing less than the other proposals, which are only aimed at creating a single 2-3 minute video anyway.

Please vote for my main proposal here, and then the MaidSafe community will get all of the following:

MaidSafe really needs this. It can be at least 5x bigger easily this year just because more and more people are getting into crypto, decentralization, freedom and these types of things, and MaidSafe will blow everything else out of the water, while blockchains continue to snap :stuck_out_tongue:

VOTE FOR IT!!

The way I see it is the company and the community (and in fact the world) share the technology, but as a profit making entity MaidSafe will at times have additional priorities. We need to ensure returns for our equity investors and therefore looking for commercial partnerships with companies will be a focus. For example, supporting SAFE Networks running inside corporate networks. Recruitment is also a major factor and motivating highly talented and qualifies individuals to work for the company (not the network) will also be a focus. So there will be much shared between SAFE Network and MaidSafe and we look forward to all pitching in on these together, but also some differences hence the need for slightly different messages and approach.

Great news!

What about a Telegram Group?

Telegram activity is one of mainly things that a “crypto-investor” looks before invest in a cryptocurrency. Also will be great have a channel to chat fluently with the community members .

Hi Martin - there’s actually a SAFE Network telegram group up and running today. It’s currently linked at the bottom of the maidsafe.net website (https://t.me/safenetwork) :slight_smile:

In addition to twitter, #safenetwork is also an active IRC channel on freenode.

we need to get MAID listed on more exchanges.

Please have a look at https://bitclude.com/ It is new cpryto-exchange opened Jan 2018 based in UK. I believe there is chance to get listed there (MAID/Fiat). As they are new there wont be need to pay enourmous fee to get listed I hope. Plus given how fast crypto exchanges can grow client base… in several months it could be decent size exchange.

How much has been budgeted for marketing in 2018? Very ambitious goals and trying to gauge how much $$ committed to achieving. I know there are many things that can be done at very little cost but not sure how much cost should be taken into consideration especially when voting on proposals.

Bit collude? Not sure I like the sound of that! :rofl:

Out of all the projects I follow…MAID is closest to my :heart: Even among the outside community, so many people have not heard of this project yet. We need more eyes and ears aware if this project is to ultimately succeed and you are definitely correct in saying that an increase in price will attract that.

I’d like to know this.

My e-office proposal has a monthly cost of $2k maximum, including its expansions.

And the safe pods proposal I made is approx $1k monthly per country, but it can be tightened down if needed. Or expanded.

Shouldn’t be hard to fit

Another idea is to get a ‘Safe’-girl in to the ‘Virtual Currency Girls’-band :laughing:

I also saw a mention of this German song (without subtitles) on Riot/Telegram: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHf27O_IQDE&feature=youtu.be

EDIT: It seems Dash and BCC really have made a song. Maybe not such a good idea.

Hi Dug,

This looks like a plan :slightly_smiling_face:. I think if these actions are delivered well then we will see growth in the community and this will result in the growth in price. Feel free to reach out if there is any help needed.

This is by far the best update in the forum I’ve read. I pray for your smooth delivery.

Jokes aside, we are having regular meetings over here in Malaysia. Most of us are not tech and marketing updates like this will be an interesting discussion point.

@dugcampbell would you like to stream into our meeting? 20 Jan 2.30PM Malaysian time.

I think this is really cool idea and an easy way to capture people going forward. Would be cool to see the backdrop of the video updates change to the different offices around the world (if possible).
