[Worker Proposal] Advertisement at 8btc
« on: February 11, 2017, 04:22:40 pm »
recently China goverment took some actions to restrict/regulate the service provided by cryptoexchanges such as OKcoin, huobi, BTCC, yunbi etc., now it's a good time to promote DEX service in China, I plan to do advertisement at 8btc, the most popular website for blockchain and cryptocurrency in China, below is the details:

an advertise picture that link to https://bitshares.org/wallet/#/dashboard will be put to the up right side of the homepage of 8btc.com or www.8btc.com, as below:

several advertisement pictures will share the place, and one occupy at least 25% of the time.

8btc charge 2BTC/month for this kind of advertisement,I will put in the advertisement for 1 month, which need 2BTC, I will offer 1BTC, and I create this worker to collect the left fund.

the worker will last 1month, totally 252000 BTS, daily pay 8400 BTS.

the advertisement will be online in one week.

your support is appreciated!

Do you run your own faucet? If not, you should set one up to capture the fresh users' referral fee.
I can help you set one up.
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

I am in favor of giving this a try.  But I agree with [member=31]fav[/member] that the results should be measured (both by click throughs from the ad, and by new accounts created under a specific referrer). 

Also very important, both in general and to maximize the success of this effort (and the efficiency of the funds spent), the wallet needs a suitable page for new visitors to land on.  The current default page is the account creation page (see 1st image below), which I've been saying is a very unsuitable page for new visitors to land.  Perhaps this is why you are proposing to have people land on the dashboard page.  But this page is also not suitable since it has no information (see 2nd image below). 

Because I believe it is imperative to have a suitable landing page for new visitors (for this ad campaign AND in general), I took the time to create one (see 3rd image below).  I proposed it last week to @Chris420, who liked the idea and encouraged me to ask [member=11456]svk[/member] to incorporate it into the wallet site.  I discussed it with [member=11456]svk[/member] and understand it's currently in progress.  [member=23]bitcrab[/member], I hope you will write some similar text in Chinese, or translate the text I wrote so there's a proper landing page in place before spending money on an ad.

This worker has my full support and I wish we had many other marketing worker proposals like this one! well done [member=23]bitcrab[/member] and thank you for your generosity.

Does anyone has access to advertise bts on London tune or NY adverts for example? How much does it cost to place a small advert on tube trains for a month? 
We need to start using the pool funds for marketing like this. There is no other way. No ads..No success..

how are you measuring success? what metrics can you catch?

[member=31]fav[/member] seriously man? The guy offers to cover half of the cost with his own funds, he asks for 252,000 bts for 1 month and you ask about metrics? Come on now... :o :o ::) ::)

Seems like a good idea.

I agree with your proposal, [member=11456]svk[/member] might want to hear about it.

I think the question is legit from a proxy knowing that we have a strong anti-dilution community and that we wasted some funding in the past.
The answer might help this worker to get more votes

just because someone offers half of something does not mean it's actually worth a dime.

[member=39182]tbone[/member] that's an awesome idea! brings us closer to a real landing page!

Well I think it is worth much more than a dime. Especially now with the situation to the Chinese exchanges And actually I think that 252,000 bts for 1 month ad is not a lot. How much does it worth to have ads in coinmarketcap.com ? does anyone know? Can we consider this as well?
And if you want to compare metrics consider that 5 days of svk's worker or 3 days of xeroc's worker is 250k bts (no offence to these workers- I also support both of these) so for 3-5 days of devs work I consider 1 month advertising to popular sites more than fair..

It doesn't matter if we have the best working product out there if no one knows about it...Let's put Ads everywhere please..

I think ,the worker may be do more works:
(1)a new faucet
(2)who click the AD ,will receive JINBI in dex.bitshares. You  should to write a opensource program.
Why need the program?Because ,bitshares worker's purpose is  offering open code.
我想这个worker要设计的更标准,而不是仅做广告,否则,google facebook twitter baidu weibo coinmarketcap.com等等平台都需要广告:
(1)一个新的水龙头,用于国内点击注册
(2)点击广告调出打赏程序,打赏8btc的代币jinbi。

hi [member=39182]tbone[/member] your advice is great, I will provide the Chinese text soon.
I have even one more idea, when the new user click the page, can the server get the info of the users' area and change the language setting accordingly and automatically? if yes it will help many new users from China a lot. [member=11456]svk[/member]

I can help you set one up.

I just found that if a new user create an account at the official web wallet https://bitshares.org/wallet/#/, both the register and the referrer are openledger.

I do not run my own faucet now, so if I set up one, it's possible to let the new user select faucet, in other words referrer,  while creating new account  at the official web wallet?

and what is needed to run a faucet? a LTM account with enough BTS and also a server?

If you want i can help you on the faucet side of things .. i could give you a specific faucet url that gives all the referral reward to you foe some time or even help you set your own faucet up.
however .. having your own faucet requires that you also have your own wallet deployed because the faucet api is hard coded in the gui

I believe IP Geolocation requires an API service, which I'm not sure how many free ones exist.  If we can add a free one, great.  But even if we do, there's no guarantee it will work every time.  And even when it does work, there will be times when the user's actual language does not match their location. 

For these reasons, we really should put the language selector right in the header, so it's highly accessible from anywhere in the wallet.  And I would use country flag icons next to each language in the list.  That way it's obvious that it's a language setting, even when the user is unable to recognize the currently selected language. 

By the way, in addition to improving the initial UX for users who don't speak the default language, there's good marketing value to show very prominently that the wallet supports 8 languages.

it's better to detect the default language from browser setting
and I agree the language select should be in the top menu.
Code: [Select]
  1129     var defaultLang = navigator.language;
  1130     if(!defaultLang)
  1131         defaultLang = navigator.browserLanguage;

Really? judging from your answer you must be a marketing eight ball. how do you know this is worth something? what ads/graphics are used? how is success measured?
