Hey @Nearmedianews thanks for the proposal. I appreciate your contributions to the NEAR ecosystem and media landscape. I do have a few concerns/questions for you.

  • Your Twitter activity for October is a lot of retweets of @Dacha and very little additional content. Did you drop off due to funding delay?
  • Have you reviewed the current KPIs we must align with for funding? Can you review the below and let me know your answers to the questions?

Here is a link to the MarketingDAO Guidelines for October that were posted on the forum. They contain the NDC’s KPIs we are asked to focus on for allocating this month’s funds.

I’ll quote them here so it’s easier to review:

Please use the following metrics that will be used for tracking individual initiatives’ performance by Marketing (Eco) DAO. All the metrics must be attributable to the relevant project/initiative through on-chain activity and off-chain reporting, ensuring GDPR compliance and preserving privacy:

  1. Accounts retention after 1/2/4/8 weeks — the percentage of accounts who continue interacting on the chain over a given time period (higher is better)
  2. Account acquisition cost — budget divided by the number of accounts interacting through the funded initiative (lower is better)
  3. Median number of dApps used by P95 accounts retained for 1+ week (higher is better)
  4. Number of accounts retained for 1+ week using at least three dApps (higher is better)
  5. Social engagement score — some compound metric of the number of posts, likes, and followers/views in social media produced by the users.

Let’s take this example: Why should Marketing (Eco) DAO fund Project X?

  1. Project X should have a clear goal and target audience
  2. Project X should bring improvements to several metrics listed above

Based on the above, can you share:

  • Which of the above KPIs your initiative will use if funding is received
  • How you will track and share the results with MDAO so we can have visibility into the results?
  • What is the most important aspect of this proposal, the most crucial to fund – what will have the most impact for the community?

The reality is that MDAO has 35 pending proposals for limited funds, we can’t fund every project, nor can we fund all recipients every month as we aim to allocated Community support to the highest impact activities and projects.

Hey @Bakaka thanks for your love and support!

yeah sure, why not, will work on it, thanks for sharing your valuable suggestions! :pray:

hey @so608 not like that, we are just trying to share new updates from the HoM, via just RT the HoM member’s Twitter post (and maybe hardly it was only 2 or 3 RT posts only)

well something like that, there were two reasons behind this!

  • our graphic designer was very sick last week, and he was admitted to the hospital so…, so we accept that we had low posts last week, but he will join us from tomorrow!
  • and due to v0 or v1, we are not clear about the funding, so we are unable to hire a new graphic designer for last week’s work!

But we have done several other activities on other social media platforms, to promote near ecosystems!

NEAR Media brings improvements to several metrics

well, we are always trying to make a clear and detailed report work for the community members and councils!

Here is some of our report work, that we have done!

  • Building community more strong
  • Increase Transaction: Via TipBot, near.social quiz, Zealy Campaign, using NEAR & Aurora dApps
  • Onboard New Users and active wallets: Giveaway, AMAs, and Zealy
  • each week we have zealy campaign in which we are adding several tasks for the community members: Zealy - Join the movement
  • Active Telegram & Twitter Community
  • Boost community near.social profile!
  • supporting near and aurora-related projects!
  • supporting near-related events, and providing tips to the users for joining the movement with other near communities!
  • promoting events on social media platforms!
  • and many more!

We also sharing here our last week’s zealy report, so it’s looking more clear for other members as well!

Zealy Report

Title: Enhancing Onchain Transactions in the Near Ecosystem

Date: 13th - 26th October, 2023

Introduction: This comprehensive report aims to present a thorough overview of the recent concerted efforts directed towards amplifying on-chain transactions within the Near Ecosystem, with a specific focus on the NEAR And Aurora. The report accentuates the notable accomplishments and significant contributions made in furtherance of this critical objective.

Achievements and Contributions:

1. Participation in the Zealy Event:

Achievement: A total of 73 enthusiastic participants engaged in the spirited #2 Zealy event orchestrated by Near Media News, with the overall participation count reaching 150 individuals to date.

Contribution: The event provided an invaluable platform for fostering robust user engagement within the Near community, elevating community awareness, and forging stronger interpersonal connections among the users.

2. Onchain Transactions on Aurora Network:

Achievement: The Aurora Network facilitated a noteworthy 1150 on-chain transactions.

Contribution: These transactions encompassed a spectrum of activities, including active staking on Aurora Plus, immersive participation in the popular Wordl, 2048, and dynamic engagement in the engaging Hunters Bet. These interactions not only underscore heightened user participation but also significantly contribute to the overall transactional vitality within the Aurora Network.

3. Transactions on Near Mainnet:

Achievement: Over 450 transactions were successfully executed on the Near Mainnet.

Contribution: These transactions included news of Near/Aurora on the Near Social platform to active staking endeavors within the Meta Pool, fostering reciprocal connections with fellow users on Near Social, and establishing robust Near Social profiles.

Projects Covered:

A.Games on Aurora:

Contribution: The spirited engagement in diverse gaming activities on the Aurora Network, including the immersive Wordl, 2048, and the Hunters Bet, significantly boosts the overall transaction volume and fortifies user interactions within the ecosystem.

B. Staking on Aurora Platform:

Contribution: Staking operations conducted on Aurora Plus not only foster a decentralized environment but also fuel on-chain transactions, as users actively partake in staking and unstaking activities. The impressive tally of over 5.1k Aurora Staked on Aurora.plus

C.Staking on Meta Pool:

Contribution: The active participation in the Meta Pool staking initiative has notably contributed to the marked increase in the Total Value Locked (TVL), signifying the escalating transactional momentum within the ecosystem. The impressive staking tally of around 1.5k NEAR staked on MetaPool during the campaign.

D.Near Social:

Contribution: The dynamic engagement witnessed on Near Social, including the news updates within the Near Ecosystem.

E.Threads on Projects:

Contribution: A total of 25+ engaging threads were prominently featured on Twitter, covering projects within the Near Ecosystem.

User Preference Insights: Based on substantial user feedback, it has been determined that Ref and Here wallet have emerged as the preferred most used Dapp in the Near Ecosystem. Consequently, a quest was been added, where performing transactions on Ref Finance and Here Wallet was required

Ref Finance: Notably, the impressive execution of swaps amounting to more than $400 tnx on
Ref Finance is achieved.

Here Wallet: Additionally, the transactional volume surpasses $150, executed seamlessly via the Here Wallet.

Conclusion: Transactions have been noted to be higher than they were at the previous Zealy event. There is a noticeable difference. Through a number of programs and initiatives, the goal of increasing on-chain transactions inside the Near Ecosystem has made substantial progress. A thriving and dynamic ecosystem is facilitated by accomplishments like taking part in the Zealy event, playing games on Aurora, staking actions on Aurora and Meta Pool, and transactions on Near Social!

and thanks @so608 for sharing valuable suggestions, much appreciated!

Have a great day ahead,
