Media buys are anywhere from hundred to thousands of dollars per month. This will later include purchasing email list drops to drive traffic and promotion.The Details:
Media costs money, especially if we are proactive and build out our own media machine. I have access to be able to get authorship accounts on major publications, and access to media sources. As we get traffic to all of these sources, we can leverage the traffic for other marketing initiatives that the core group of marketers for Bitshares is currently working on. This includes retargeting campaigns, audience building, etc.
Currently pay for delegates is approximately $2500 USD per month. Just one author account costs this much or more. As each month passes, we will apply funds to building out the media presence on each platform based on the current need.
Application of delegate pay will be used to further the Bitshares platform by leveraging authorship accounts on major media sources. We will write, edit and maintain regular content on each source as we acquire them. Acquisition of each source will cost money, and many services will require ongoing subscription for service. As BTS value increases, it will enable us to apply more funds to building out our media presence, and shape the vision presented to the audience in a proactive way, rather than waiting for media to come to us or convincing them they want to be interested. As we increase exposure on these publications, others will then gravitate toward us with interest in interviews, etc. This will get the ball rolling.
Ongoing media interviews on news, etc can be ensured, however there is an ongoing price tag tied to this. With that price tag is ensured media coverage several times per month. This is phase two, once the BTS value increases and makes more monthly funds available to us. Once the funds are readily available monthly, we will begin this sustained media campaign.
Media buys will take place when there are any funds available to do so. Media buys are typically one time until you can prove ROI for that buy, then you can scale or make a more permanent purchase to ensure your presence. Example is a banner buy on a highly trafficked site. If it goes well we would work out a deal to have continuous presence.By leveraging these resources and building out our own media marketing machine, we can bring a HIGH VALUE to our potential partners. Partners will be more inclined to work with us as we can add the value of media attention and discussion about their services and our partnerships with them. Big selling point here.Background:
