I think that Twitter would be a great platform, as twitter has a massive crypto following.

When working with Gravity Protocol, a small budget toward building a better Twitter following increased the account from 10-20 followers to over 1000 in a few months.

Bitshares scores a measley 5% for its social media presence... we can do so much better and it would push bitshares to very near the top of binance rankings... something to consider for all the twitter haters :)

Great spot

You need coindesk to carry it.

Look at this article that Edan Yago wrote:
https://www.coindesk.com/there-is-no-bitcoin-what-the-sec-doesnt-get-about-cryptocurrency

...do some more research, the guy isn't really a journalist. Click his name, he does 1 or 2 articles a year.

But his opinions were published. His CementDAO was featured at the top of the article "for free".

Coindesk (which a lot of people read) rarely reports on Bitshares -- whether we think we're important or not. That is because we haven't followed this:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KDyOEwISAR9UWDa7qP-Gg5-Nm0wvBFT_IlgqboxXbco/edit

Simply blogging, and sending out tweets, requires you to build your own following.   Take an existing following and get those eyeballs to see what you have to write about... coindesk gives free advice on how to get that done.  Other publications will tell you how to get it done there too..

I have written things for Coindesk https://www.coindesk.com/?s=bitspark and am good friends with some of the people there. Happy to do a piece mentioning Bitshares, will work on one in my spare time, but for Coindesk or other publications to carry it it needs a unique angle/insight/insider perspective. Just posting about transactions per second goes to the spam folder.

Regarding marketing proposal, essentially a worker for this needs to have defined goals, KPIs and messaging, thats how these things work. The people in Bitshares are strong on technical knowledge but weak on business/sales/marketing knowledge. I would prefer a worker proposal that would be done by a professional company as to do it right its alot of work and not simply 'just post something on twitter'.  Will ask around some of the crypto PR companies and see if anything shows up.

I'm happy to see a marketing proposal. Start small, grow from that. I understand using twitter might be argueable, but it's a reasonable start.

Question I have is how to establish an "official" bitshares marketing brand, that is sanctioned through a worker proposal, and also how to indicate that properly.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by establishing an official marketing brand... Glad to hear that you are open to at least attempting some social media marketing, starting small and seeing how we get on. It's a step in the right direction IMO, we cant just carry on doing nothing.

Apparently youtube drives most traffic to exchanges followed by twitter. https://www.theblockcrypto.com/tiny/youtube-drives-the-most-traffic-to-cryptocurrency-exchanges/
