I've been talking with Gamey and Brian quite a bit over the last few months on grassroots initiatives. One of the more exciting initiatives that I'm developing is a 'Welcome Home' push to bring back those forum members that might have left us, investors that might have moved to different projects and crypto community members that might have dismissed us a little too quick. Brian and Susan are offering support in these upcoming initiatives, I wanted to give you a glimpse on the approach. I'm posting this in the general board because it's going to take work from different segments of our forum to make it work.
"-Welcome Back - The Real Low Hanging Fruit-
We have over 7801 members signed up on the forum. We have even more in the Bitcointalk thread that have disappeared into the crypto space. They might have been short time holders, they might have found something more interesting or maybe frustrated at all the changes. Regardless, this should be a top priority. Let's bring them home, it's all hands on deck.
Once the website is up and the community agrees the content is adequate, this is the perfect time to bring them back. We could have them view the website, review the latest mumble sessions and even have a board that has a few posts summarizing what's in development.
We could offer prizes as an incentive. I don't have the details figured out, however, I'm up to donating 10,000 BTS. So how do we contact these people?
- Email sent out to our existing forum members
- Email sent out to newsletter signups (mini newsletter?)
- Post on Bitcointalk, Reddit
- Twitter announcement
Once we start getting people flowing back into the forum, we'll move to our next phase with the Twitter push. Thanks to Gamey's help, I will be working with Susan to feed her updates throughout the day for both FB and Twitter. The topics will range from mini interviews with community members to important updates within the community. Grassroots marketing can't just be about the guys that hang in the marketing board, we need all your talent. Please submit any type of ideas/feedback!
