August Newsletter
« on: August 14, 2014, 12:03:42 PM »

Here is a crude draft of the August Newsletter.


We are working it make it higher quality, but we also want it to go out in time for people to read it before the upcoming snapshots.  Cass has agreed to undertake the impossible and clean it up this weekend so folks will have all week to read it.

What other events and content did I miss?

Also, here is a link to the Follow My Vote newsletter from the BitShares VOTE team.  This is the kind of quality I'd like to see us get to ... if I could ever get my raw content written in time.  :)

 - we are currently NOT top 6 .. $2m missing :)

Could you put this onto google docs and give us (or a few of us) edit rights so we can pimp that thing together?

Yes no Problem will go over tomorrow - guess best workaround is to create a general newsletter template for all future newsletter purposes - I've got access to mailchimp so guess this shouldn't a big problem :)

Yeah, we'd better ask Cass to change that sentence to "already visited the Top Six".  Good thing I captured the evidence while it was true!

Good ideas!  I have handed off control to Cass, so I'll have to leave it to him how he wants to get more help on it...

Thanks!  :)

Great.  We'll be at the Cryptolina Expo in Raleigh, NC this weekend, so launch the MailChimp campaign when ready...

 +5% I like the coinmarketcap graphic. It would be good to repost that in forums particularly with a polished paragraph about the feature release, the marketing initiative and the fact that it's probably your last chance to buy BTSX as cheap or cheaper than what people were paying before the snapshot.

I like the idea of posting the snapshot graphic in the newsletter.

What do people think about mentioning & name-dropping in the marketing paragraph,  'On the Western side, we've just recently returned from an incredible St. Martin mastermind trip, that involved in depth discussions and potential future partnerships with marketing heavyweights such as 'Kevin Harrington of Shark Tank fame.'

Perhaps even add a picture?




Edit: I don't know if it's really for the newsletter but I think a hook worth mentioning when marketing BTSX is the high level of Chinese support. As Xeroc pointed out the initial huge Bitcoin spurt was driven by the idea that the Chinese were getting behind Bitcoin and part of one of the first pop's was China related too. BTSX has huge Chinese support as indicated by the BTSX/CNY volume.

Looks great. Typo on page 2, near the bottom of last para: change "BTSC" to "BTSX".

Yeah, that really disappoints me...  :)

But it makes the intended point!

I love the format (white, minimalist, everything centered).  Very clean and easy on the eyes. However speaking of easy on the eyes, am I the only one that finds the light grey text on a white background a strain?
