As I mentioned in my last delegate report, meetup.com is a fantastic way to get new users. (Online to Offline Funnel)
By strictly focusing on online conversions, we expect people to go through a lot of hoops by themselves in front of their computer.
Only the determined actually follow through (hence the cost of conversion)
With our mobile wallets coming out soon, we can start meetups that connect people who have problems with our tech.
We can grow the pie rather than fighting for a piece of the bitcoin.
Last week, for example, we help advertise the Buenos Aires Meetup and added 23 RSVP in the last 48 hours before the event.
On site, they were walked through registering an account, trading, etc. They probably made friends, experienced
the tech and connected with other people with similar interest.
Meetup.com is a powerful platform and I would like to see our meetups "mushroom" everywhere and create local communities of bitsharers.
I am dedicated to help people who organize them with Facebook advertising to fill those events, as long as the event is well structured. (Other media are also interesting...university radio ads for example)
Let's get this party started.
