Good morning. What are you doing guys @MktngDAO_Advisors ?


Just to Clarify:

Are you Publishing 3 to 4 unique Posts across per week on:

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Twitter

4 Weeks Per Month x 3 x 3 channels = 26 Original posts

Is each post original or are you just repurposing the same few posts multiple times on each channe?

What is the format and purpose of the Webinar?

Where are promoting these webinars?

Hi @gurubaran – Thanks for submitting a clear proposal and also for your Jan report and the specific stats and screenshots you included.

While I agree with @Klint that it would be great to see more detail on the content you’re creating and posting, I do think your proposal is clear.

I’m happy to give my support for your social media marketing activities to continue receiving funding for February.


Hi @Klint & @so608,

Thank you for your response
We are reposting the same few posts on each channels. The total number of unique posts will be around 12-15/month.

The budget we are seeking is a mix of all Content creation costs, Ad costs, NEAR Tip Bot, Tools cost, Keeping the channel active by actively managing them.

With respect to the webinar we have prepared our own slides starting from Web 1, Web 2, Web 3 & then move slowly into blockchain & NFTs. The sessions are conducted in regional languages. We are promoting the webinars mainly in the Instagram stories, our personal Instagram accounts & WhatsApp as of now.

To increase the reach & scale for our upcoming webinars we will also be promoting it using Facebook & Instagram Ads to get more registrations. Also our sessions will be conducted on Zoom & they will be recorded as well which will be uploaded in YouTube & also the snippets of the session will be used for promotion as well.


Looks great! You’ve got a thumbs up from me.
