FRG will include this Tier 1 work in their proposal so we can remove that from the scope here, leaving only the $6500 to include my time to best coordinate all pre-launch marketing, launch, and post-launch marketing activities.
Can pivot to whatever route or parameters work for everyone (or continue to hustle and bootstrap), if this is more suitable under a different path. Thanks!
Good morning. Sorry, I don’t understand why marketing DAO should approves grants for commercial projects? Who are beneficiaries?
Could find Community here. I see buyers and sellers. If it important for NEAR Inc., NEAR Foundation , please do it directly.
Secondly, the same question about Flying Rhino. Why NF pays $5700 to the project. $1900 a month for Twitter and TG channel a month, at the same time Marketing DAO approves $200-400 for other guilds.
OWS pays $100 for this work.Tweets, daily engagement, metrics and feedback, photos. Absolutely the same work.
Why x19 for Flying Rhino? Who is response for payments to Flying Rhino? Why NF councils advise to Guilds work with Flying and don’t want to find cheaper alternatives, or working with Marketing DAO?
Why NF councils didn’t compare prices with other companies on the market? It’s not about experience in Near Ecosystem. Everyone can do their job. I mentioned their Astro DAO account as an example of poor work.
I think NF needs to stop this kind of experience.
Really, weird, continue my investigation.
Dear @Clint-Datality thank you for your work. Probably, it’s wrong DAO for funding.
Ps: I’m only 1/6 council. May be other one has different opinion.
It’s not the same work, they’re of differing standards.
FRG are offering a full scale service, including the creation and management of all social media accounts for Datality.
Please understand that FRG are on track to becoming self sufficient, they’re forming an LLC and are setting an example for future Guilds.
@Clint-Datality if you don’t have a grant anymore and still need funding to complete this, and the MarketingDAO Council aren’t in alignment with funding it, we can still get this funded through an alternative like the EcosystemDAO.
The fist channel even better. Thanks for great job @Maiker
If you don’t have enough a time on these kind of questions in Ecosystem Development DAO, you can take me as a 5th council. Make sure, it will be perfect transparent dedicated work.
I see only two accounts in the report - Twitter and Telegram. Averagely Marketing DAO pays $400 for both for guilds with strategy, OWS ~ $200 for Twitter + infographics + detailed monthly report. Why $1900 for Flying Rhino?
In my opinion, the project kind of Ebay platform with one beneficiary.
I want to see a community driven DAO, first-of-all.
I’ve explained to you countless times the trusted status of particular guilds, including FRG. Maintaining the same increasingly high level of accountability is admirable but it just hinders growth in this case.
You’re conflating OWS work with that of the FRG. It is not the same. It includes the creation of the accounts, the (higher quality) maintenance and management of them, too.
Let’s not fill this thread up with this discussion. Feel free to make another and we can chat there if you wish.
Thanks so much, Dacha and David. Fireworks! One more bit of feedback in the interest of making us all better… then I have to break for a few hours:
Benefit: @Dacha 's assessment is spot on: Datality is similar to an Ebay|AirBnB|Uber for research data; and our surface-level tactic is solely engaging sellers and buyers. However, with every Datality user, we’re concurrently showing them NEAR Protocol on every signup, posting, purchase, and product review. We’re directly marketing NEAR (blockchain) as a critical economic facet of a trustworthy market and $NEAR (crypto) as a safe and efficient payment/payout medium. In fact, NEAR is showcased in their Datality user menu to see those immutable transactions:
Thus, I see this marketing effort being very mutually beneficial, hence the proposal - first for Datality, and then quickly thereafter for NEAR.
My 25 years (yikes!) of experience says the level of standards rise to how well participants make each other better. I believe my research, structure, strategy and high expectations for Datality, FRG and every Datality contributor will enable them to achieve great things in 3 months’ time, be an example in crafting a vendor-client fit, and long-term won’t be a waste of your time and funding.
There are other considerations, but it’s a lot. Enjoy the day/evening, and thanks again for your time and consideration!
Good afternoon, @Dacha!
Did I get it right? This organization does not have a DAO, does not have a community presence, is it transparent? Is it just a commercial organization that gets funding from the Marketing DAO and NF? So it’s just paying for a private marketing agency? But then I don’t understand why marketing guilds and DAOs are being created in the community at all, if we can simply order and pay for these services to private and independent marketing companies? This is all very strange …
It’s the NEAR Foundation, the funding body, which determines the level (tier) a Guild is at AFAIK:
You’ve been critical of the OWS submissions yourself, please understand that there is a difference between incentivised community-driven content and (what is essentially emerging as) a professional near-focused marketing/social media Guild.
Like I said, let’s move this discussion elsewhere if you want to continue it
Good afternoon David! Nice to See you again!)
I’m already confused, to be honest) So is this a guild that is part of the NF or is it an independent private company that is not part of the NEAR ecosystem?)
