We are failing selling our products
« on: February 01, 2015, 11:13:14 PM »

Google Trends shows just a simple comparison, but it maybe interesting result and has a lot of implications for us.

Example: Apple vs. iPhone vs. Macbook
http://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=apple%2C%20iphone%2C%20macbook&date=today%2012-m&cmpt=q&tz=

Our result: Bitshares vs. BitUSD vs. BitGOLD (major part of bitgold is not from ours)
http://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=bitshares%2C%20bitusd%2C%20bitgold&date=today%2012-m&cmpt=q&tz=

IMHO, marketing team can do "Free BitUSD" giveaway with SNS viral marketing (i.e. people should post about BitUSD on facebook to get BitUSD) when our light-wallet, mobile wallet, or web wallet is launched.

If you google 'BitUSD' 'BitShares' and most importantly 'BitGold' & choose 'videos' the little video I did comes up in the top 2 just because it has those terms in the title, despite only having a few views.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fnunXnLdJdw

It would be great for BitShares to have the top BitGold video and BitMarkets videos get a lot of views so I've suggested he mentions BitShares, BitGold & BitUSD more in the titles or descriptions. He says a few like that are in the pipeline.

I'm not sure what's required to get BitShares higher in general search results though.

You're from South Korea clayop? I was really suprised to see according to Alexa, 25% of BitShares.org visitors are from there. I don't think they count China but still I think that must be a mistake.

Of course we need to start marketing more and strongly branding BitShares in general. I know the marketing delegates haven't had much of a budget released yet so there's still very minimal advertising.

@clayop I think you are absolutely right. We should start selling BitUSD and BitGold. I just bought the site whatisbitgold.com, its not finished. But would like to get feedback, or hack it yourself at github.com/kaibakker/whatisbitgold.com .

 +5% I think your site is a good idea. If you google BitUSD, WhatisBitUSD comes up as the 2nd result for me, whereas we aren't even on the first page for BitGold so that site could really help.

Of course yes we needed to advertise and sell it more too. I think runes cryptohedge will bring our BitGold a lot more attention. https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=13904.0

Because I put much effort to advertising Bitshares in Korean crypto communities, I think this may be possible. Bitshares 101 Korean version is free and available online now, many people are contacting me with their problems, I regularly update about new client versions and important news. Should I increase my payrate?  :P

 +5% +5% Wow, well done  8) If that trend keeps up, then you really should increase your payrate imo!

Way to sell, is way to serve.
Why not provide a service that many people need with bituSD or bitGold? Such as instant international money transfer.

To do this, bitusd gateways are needed absolutely. US marketing team should put their priority on this, IMHO.

.... It would be great for BitShares to have the top BitGold video

Now i think this has potential. Think about it - what if we created a really good and professional video for bitgold and promoted it wide and far. Really pushing home the truth about bitgold that differentiates us - where else can you earn interest on gold and hold it without counter party risk? - this could raise our profile in one move on places like youtube.  Maybe offer a free 1oz per day for a week or two in some sort of competition?

BM said we need to use the term BitGold more than our competition. What better way than a controversial, thought provoking, hard hitting professionally made video? Now we'd have to get it right first time. No screw ups.

Just my 2 cents.

Good job. I like the site.  +5%

I very much like this idea of gateways.  I would like to suggest however that for ethical reasons we use stellar instead of ripple.  I went to a ripple presentation a few weeks ago and it truly made me want to puke " we are going to take this awesome tech and "civilize it".  No one and no tech wants to be civilized: too likely that one might awaken sans testicles....

Anyway.... Yes on gateways!

Yes I'm pretty sure the BitGold.com  Eric Sprott is an investor in will probably have a BitGold video out as well soon. As I said the BitSharesTV videos get a lot of views so just one titled along the lines of 'BitGold by BitShares'  would be great & have a shot at the top spot in the meantime before we have a BitGold promotion video.

^ If next bitshares TV episode was with bytemaster going over the recent bitgold blog he made that would work well to promote it and interest a lot of people.

BitsharesTV needs to eventually become like World Crypto Network channel  where they have sub shows on different topics making 4  or 5 vids a week. Wish I had time to help but i work long hours at boring regular job for now :(
