Marketing Proposals | Greycore & Host-to-host

I think this covers the basics but allows people to bring up other issues via #6. Great Job!

Good marketing is about bringing the target user into a story where the brand is the guide - or Obi Wan if you will - who shows the user how to solve their problem and avoid catastrophe.

In our case, we need to first identify WHO we are marketing to. Who will be the hero of our crosschain story?

Will it be the Degen Cowboy looking to get his assets into the best yield? How about the founder who needs to access multiple blockchains with his project? The DAO who needs truly decentralized derivatives to avoid government meddling?

First you need to know who you’re marketing to, the rest follows.

POLL: :speech_balloon::question:

‘What should be our first priority with regards to community marketing?’

  • Identify target audience, objectives, and key data/metrics first
  • Wait for the community fund to be allocated first.
  • Work with marketeers/marketing agencies first.
  • Calculate costs/budgeting first.
  • Establish a community hub for incentives first.
  • Something else (please specify)…

Amazing work Shilliam.

I believe a Ren version of 77 Smart Contract Use Cases Enabled by Chainlink would help spark developer interest.

Thanks for the suggestion Jando great idea. This sounds similar to the ‘12 App Ideas For RenVM article on Medium’ - although I agree an extensive, and well-research list of possible applications/features on RenVM would help.

If the community votes for ‘Attract developer interest’ as our target audience then I’ll automatically include your suggestion as part of our next actions.

Just an idea, it might be a good marketing strategy to have a tab in the command center which is titled “Investors”. This tab would have some or all of the following metrics so that speculative investors can make their own assessments of REN value. I see posts that ask for ROI details like this on Reddit a lot and although I am inclined to answer sometimes, it would be nicer to point them to the command center and in effect say, “look here and you can track it on your own”.

Included would be:

  • history of epoch specific income (by bridged coin) for one darknode
  • history of number of darknodes paid out to by epoch
  • number of Eth wallets holding REN
  • number of exchanges trading REN
  • global average price over time.
  • timeline of major development milestones in the past.

There could be more or there could be less details provided but I think this would be effective without being too much work.

This kind of information would be great to have on the Command center, especially the first 2 bullets points).
