A month ago we started to build a German NEAR community. We created a community on Telegram and on Twitter. We think we managed the first month very well. About 900 members joined our community and we already had some discussions about NEAR related topics in our communities and were able to answer some questions about the NEAR ecosystem. You can see some facts about our activities and some statistics in our report. Now it’s time to take the next steps.
1. GOALS & ACTIVITIES
In January we want to grow further our German community on Telegram and Twitter. We want to increase the members and followers and we also want to have more activity in our community .
Therefore, we are planning to do a quiz in our Telegram group in the middle of January . In the quiz, users can answer questions about the NEAR ecosystem and win NEARs.
And we also want to translate some (3-5) articles of the NEAR ecosystem to German and present these articles to our community (e.g over medium.com). We think it’s important that there is some content in the German language to engage more German people for the NEAR ecosystem.
In the next months we will be doing more and more activities. However, we want to grow sustainably. So, we will proceed step by step to achieve our goals that we have set at the beginning of our NEAR German journey.
Till End of January, we are expecting to reach:
1,000+ members on Telegram
250+ followers on Twitter
German articles about NEAR in German Language
3. METRICS TO MEASURE SUCCESS
Successful activities in January means:
Active Near Germany Telegram group, talking about the NEAR Ecosystem.
Active Near Germany Twitter account - with the latest news about NEAR.
Successful completion of the Quiz
3-5 articles in German about the NEAR ecosystem published on medium.com
We will have some expenses to support our communities on Telegram and on Twitter. We will have to answer questions on Telegram and will tweet regularly the latest news of the NEAR ecosystem on Twitter. We will also make promotions to be able to grow our community.
We will have expenses for the quiz. We will have to plan and implement it and we want to distribute a prize of 350$.
And we will have expenses for the German NEAR articles.
Therefore we’ve decided to set our total costs to 1950$.
Thank you for your comments and sorry for the late answer.
I was on holiday last week and @cizi31 and @Kemal were both infected with the coronavirus. Cizi is still in quarantine. but is luckily on the way to recovery.
Yeah you are right, there are three managers for our community (Kemo, Cizi and me)
Cizi and I have created the proposal for December before we knew Kemo. So we calculated the budget without Kemos efforts. We have already talked with Kemo and have now included his efforts in our calculation.
We will have huge efforts for the implementation of the quiz. But we are sure that the quiz will help us to improve the activity in our Telegram group. We have started a good month ago and it’s impossible that our group is as active as the official Near Protocol group. But I think we are on the right way and with the quiz we will improve the activity and also more people will join us.
I don’t know why you state that the last tweet was 12/19. That’s not correct. I think our Twitter account is very active. We have made some interesting Tweets. I think it’s more important that our tweets have quality and present the latest news of the NEAR ecosystem rather than some random tweets or retweets.
Youtube videos, NFT’s, focusing on education are our strategic goals. We will focus on this goals over the next months.
I hope that my comments will help you for your decision. We would have planned the quiz for 23 January. So we would need the budget in the next days.
