@Dacha and @marketingdao-council , as one of the councils of Gambiarra Dao, I think it is very important to clarify that the work that has been developed by @macieira @Natashacremonese and @ViniciusGCP94 has been essential for the growth of the Gambiarra store.
All the promotion of FEMINU, which was a huge event, was done voluntarily. The work of these professionals in the social networks was essential for us to have 300 people at the opening, which is a lot for an art event in the metaverse.
Today I even did the design and assembly of an exhibition of Gambiarra artists in our Gallery, which was idealized and curated by @macieira, without it being in any proposal. There are 14 artists having visibility in the media and cryptovoxels and the entire Near network benefits from this, because an event always promotes sales and puts the Near network in focus, as well as the store.
The numbers reveal the performance of these professionals and they always deliver much more than they set out to do, so there is a gain not only for the store, but for the whole community and that should be respected. The reports are always very detailed and the store was growing considerably.
Just check the significant drop in the number of instagram impressions, for example.
This certainly affected the sale of the artists, as work was being done with the highlights that up until now have always been chosen by this group, including setting up research to see the artists who have been lying for a long time in an attempt to bring these people back into the community activity. This has not been priced so it is not even seen. Nobody knows, so I am clarifying here. It is hours of research and contacting each artist. I think this should have been specified in the proposal.
They continue doing volunteer work on the networks, even though they are not being paid, to a lesser extent, of course, and I am very sorry that people like these who should receive all kinds of incentives from the community, because they are always performing, teaching, motivating the artists of the community, are questioned comparing them to distinct activities such as blogging, for example. In my opinion they do much more than just marketing. They helped the FEMINU artists in many things, even sending links with information about Near, blockchain, metaverse and so many other basic information to help them. They did it and they weren’t getting paid anything, but they did it because they are people who want to see the community grow.
I ask that all this be considered and the values reviewed because reducing to 50 USD the salary of a person who is available 3 hours a day on discord to help those who join, share all the posts, create channel for each project that needs it, among other activities, doesn’t seem appropriate to me. I don’t see why reducing to less than 500 usd the person who will add to the site through code, the members of the dao, the projects done and doing the maintenance. Reducing to 400 usd two social networks that are being well managed as well as all marketing and advertising, with Twitter for example having 3 posts a day, doesn’t seem fair to me. It is not common to suggest such drastic reductions, like for example not paying for the instagram filter, when there is a proposal on this network that paid 50 USD for a single onboarding!!!
This team has worked very hard without payment, perhaps this was a mistake, because there is no recognition. So I ask that this proposal be considered from a broader point of view and fair to these professionals who make a difference in the network and exactly why Gambiarra wants to hire them. I urgently await a position because the month is almost over and they are still working, although at a slower pace. We need to reverse the losses of the month and continue to grow. We have more than 100 artists and they need this work.
