New Chapter for MktDirector
« on: August 11, 2014, 12:55:23 AM »

As someone who's been an entrepreneur and self employed nearly all of my professional life, I've always been drawn to starting businesses.   As of today, I'll once again be self employed, as I am launching a new marketing company.   I'll continue on as brand champion for BitShares and will still be very involved with the BitShares team, but will no longer draw a salary.  I believe there will soon be a real need to market and promote new DACs and I want to focus my efforts on doing just that.   

One of our core values at BitShares has always been about decentralization.  In the next six months I expect the pace of decentralization to increase, even among BitShares as an organization.  We will have several businesses spring out of our core team, this one being just one of them.  I have put together an incredible team of my own and our primary focus in the next couple months will be in improving and promoting BitSharesX, as well as strategic marketing for several upcoming DACs.   

Expect in the near future to see a link for my company on the partners page and feel free to reach out if you're a project lead on a DAC and you'd like to discuss how we can help you with your marketing needs.   Thanks BitShares forum, and here's to even greater days ahead for BitShares! 

Bigger Than Bitcoin,
Brian

I wish you very good luck and prosperity - as it will undoubtedly pay dividends to all of us.

Would you give a very brief outline of your business model? It might be an aid to people to know how to interact with your new venture.

Does this mean you're participating as a hobbyist instead of a paid, pro marketing guy?

This would kind of disappoint me. I wanted to see what you would be able to do once the ball got rolling on bitUSD and BitShares Music.

Do you have a marketing plan to show us or something we can use to measure progress behind your efforts?

So far Bitshares X isn't even showing signs of growth so a lot of us are skeptical right now. When will we see positive results and what do you plan to do?

May I ask, is this part of the strategy of 3I or your own decision?

He is moving from employee to independent entrepreneur with the same task but powerful new incentives and capabilities.

I am sure that this makes sense for I3, Bitshares and Brian!

I wonder though (complete speculation) if this is part of a decentralization for the purpose of decentralization strategy.

(Corporate) centralization can make things more efficient http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_of_the_firm
Centralization can also lead to inefficiency.
It should be a case by case decision.

To me a decentralized society is a goal in itself. Whether a decentralized Bitshares ecosystem is the most efficient way to reach this goal, to me would be an instrumental case by case decision.

Any "official" comment on the strategy? (if there is one) :)
