Hello, base on the conversation so far, I suggest @near.insider to wrap up some points and make a poll on Community Dao. This way, we can know more of the community’s opinion and have following conversations in the chat/proposal if necessary.
Final requested number & breakdown (If there’s no change pls quote out)
Final supported projects after this concern & your reasons
While there is concern about the gap between OWS contributors’ reward and the number requested in this proposal. This is the point from OWS:
From Near Insider, do you have any other inputs? (Eg. Plan to fill this gap in the future/Help contributors improve their skills => improve salary)
I think with those answers, members in our community will get a clearer picture & have enough information to make their decisions. To avoid your proposal going nowhere, please make a poll on Community Astro DAO, final decision from the community can be used as a strong reference for Marketing Council to make a decision on this proposal.
Yes. Strongly agree. Will be increase rewards to Near Insider’s team members. In addition to this, I still reiterate the value we create and we hope you understand us. It’s not just an account, it’s a channel for reporting news and analyzing the situation in the ecosystem
Tenemos comunidades como NEAR Argentina liderado por @nacho.near , NEAR Venezuela por @FritzWorm , NEAR Mexico, NEAR Hispano por @claudioac , NEAR Peru, Octopus Spanish. Tenemos un masivo colectivo tambien en español. Apoyo esta propuesta. @Dacha :))
90% of these projects are DeFi projects. And I think half of them have received good funding, so they have the money to do their own marketing. I think we need more diversity in terms of category and project size here.
I don’t know if my opinion regarding the proposal is relevant here because I am not a member of the Marketing DAO, but I have been in the marketing field for 7 years and have my own marketing agency in Berlin since 2020. I know that some of my competitors outsource their work to India or other developing countries, so I know the prices that are charged for research, creating content, and maintaining social media channels.
I really want to support your proposal because you guys have done a lot in a short period of time and I think NEAR Insider’s work is definitely valuable for the community, but also for NEAR. We on the Project Ops team will certainly be making some more requests to NEAR Insider.
However, your proposal lacks transparency and a breakdown of what the $8,000 is being requested. In my experience, anything between $1,800-$,2,600 dollars is reasonable for the activities you list.
I think if you better address the issues raised by the community and adjust your pricing structure, your proposal will meet with approval.
We also have a big issue regarding marketing, the onboarding of new users even on those big projects is slow, and the mindset of the development teams is usually not marketing/promotion focused. They do know how to build the project but merchandise it is another thing.
That’s why it is important to support and test other marketing initiatives that will help the Near Ecosystem to grow.
