Hey humans and few aliens of NEAR,
Since past work with youtubers, that won’t be allowed to be used for promo cuz of new terms of Marketing DAO, i want to make some differences also for actions in our guild. At first to be honest most of the youtubers that are poking me in TG for good prices are just scammers and i dont want to misslead NEAR. Thanks to NEAR its a great feeling that whole community redirects to me influencers or they know who to write, tho as most as i enjoyed Sandbox OWS feel that our guild should also become more decentralised and part of funding should be given to hard doers inside of the community. Thus giving a chance for everyone to create videos, write articles, create infographics, or share some quality hype on the web.
Another reason why OWS was so great, is that i could easily onboard my friends for simple tasks to do and the process of getting some coins in exchange with simple rules.
I see that video creators make great impact not only for PR of a certain product, but if well planned also can be used as a good marketing tool, besides bringing in brand awareness about NEAR drop tons of comments and mentions as contextual advertising.
We invite projects that are built on NEAR and need some quality advertisement to get to the next level. Since these are hard times in crypto plenty of projects were supported and assistance from our side was very welcoming. So in terms of marketing we want to keep them still covered and do for them good bits of advertising like, review video creation trough established youtube channels, fancy infographics, well written articles, contextual advertising, reviews flooding with traffic on our youtube channel and as a cherry on the top get funny memes to spice it up.
How can projects apply for such help?
Simple, submit your NEAR project here for promo:
After Stars Guild will connect project authors for more details to see needs of it and added to the list,
In total we got we got almost 30 projects submitted by NEAR community, so article writers, video review creators or any contributors can choose topic to get creative about and let their advertisment continue.
How will the quality of content be gathered?
Rules for review video creators.
Concept will be similar to this we previously wrote before:
To make it more simple.
For one video that gets lower than 500 views from the treasury we will pay 100 USD.
For one video that gets more than 500 views (for established accounts) we will pay 200 USD.
Youtuber can submit not more then 2-3 videos per month. Before launching video links and hashtags of project with #NEAR and #NEARprotocol should be mentioned.
Any cheating with bots, comments or any other suspicious activities won’t be accepted. I’ll review them and got dozens of smaller youtube creators to give mentions and promo for NEAR in whole and its Dapps.
So for established youtuber channels to onboard them as advertisers of NEAR projects will be asked 3000 USD to fill treasury and get form them 15-20 videos with calculated >20k views. I will keep up with connecting dots between projects and video creators to see if they got all the details for scenario, edit before publishing, make sure needed links and hashtags are in the right place, and care that youtubers don’t cheat and only best ones are onboarded for video creation 500 USD will be asked.
@Pug Yana wants to share her talents in design. Designs like infographics and one pagers about NEAR and its Dapps, in total creating 10 infographics. Those will be also shared with projects that we advertise, on our twitter and free of use by the community.
Here is one of the samples.
In total for 10 infographics asking 400 USD.
About contextual advertising plan from @AuroraMaxi1
200 Tweets from multiple accounts per month
50 4chan organic comments
50 Reddit organic comments
50 Bitcoin talk organic comments
50 YouTube organic comments
This is a major boost for NEAR awareness like contextual advertising, and since Google spiders and SMM react on these measurements and by some online legends price of coin impacts, i would like to test out this myth by collecting dates when content was posted and price increasement of NEAR token at same time (BTC changes as second graph to see peaks).
For such amount giving aprox 6 USD per mention those would be 2500 USD
Later on as with infographics, articles, mentions about NEAR that are posted in the right places quota will be distributed for new guild members that want to take a part of action.
If anyone wants to participate in filling such tasks, or video or article creation that will be shown below, please take a look at this topic to qualify for requirements and fill the form:
All of them are English, so let’s concentrate on the main language for now.
@Hsmoney Stephen will create Stars Guilds Youtube channel and actively post videos about NEAR projects or mentionable changes with updates.
For 500 USD per 10 videos.
To get the most of his videos he will take small bits (100 USD) for Google Adsense ads (now crypto niche is allowed) to get faster and organic growth for new youtube channel. For rest 400 USD Stephen will do info gathering, script writing, video recording with montage and get deep into Google Adsense.
Advertising now is dirty cheap to get legit and targeted 20-50k views using adsense for videos in on one month. If not, we will use our inner traffic resources to get engagement.
Also he will purchase some tech for 37 USD to make more professional looking reviews, tho he will get those.
Same thing we want to continue with promo videos by Miracle
Miracle @for_the_church for_the_church – will create 3 fancy videos to be shared trought community about NEAR Dapps, those also will be uploaded to Stars Guilds YT channel and shared with project owners for some eye catchy representation. Here is his past sample, bluebit - YouTube . 100 USD per video like these is charming.
@boy.ivan Ivan is really good at article writing about blockchain, managing process of posting, get trough writers and review their articles, get right tags and mentions for our Medium.
We want to start with him offering everyone to write +500 word articles and post it to Medium channel created by Stars Guild and share with tags on medium and on twitter to reach the most engagement.
For taking care of 20 articles we want to share 750 USD with Ivan for getting writers, so that +500 word articles can be created by the community for 35 USD per quality article.
Organising such workflow Ivan asked for 250 USD. Traffic to it will be gathered through our twitter and pinning certain projects in post. So for article writers campaigns are asked for 1000 USD.
For now we might remain with these proportions of content creation.
3500 USD for video review creators. 100-200 USD per video. About 20 videos.
1000 USD for article writing. 35 USD per +500 word article. About 20 articles.
2500 USD for contextual advertisement (comments and mentions) 6 USD per mention with URL. 400 targeted mentions with links to NEAR.org (or its marketplaces and Dapps)
500 USD for 10 review videos from NEAR Stars Guild and getting related 20-50k views using G’s adsense.
400 USD for infographics. 40 USD per infographic.
500 USD for memes that are an opportunity for those who consider having a good sense of humour. With 3 USD per meme we plan to collect 100 memes, 200 USD will go manage communication between creators of memes, NEAR projects and reviewing whats funny and whats just a slappy job in MS paint.
300 USD for 3 Miracles cutest video intros.
Yana beautifully takes care of our Twitter account and its management for a month, helping with infoflow and news updates, great design and staying in the centre of info distribution. For such an amount of work 600 USD.
Myself Edgar – Am asking 500 USD for leading whole processes, making sure content is placed in the right spots, distributing content through Stars Guild social channels to get the most visibility, validating all submitted work and gathering it to a table and having fun with onboarding NEAR Dapp authors with new team members that are willing to create content, crating contests and monitoring Stars Guild in whole to see how puzzle fits perfectly.
This amount of content creation is valued in total for 9800 USD
So overall this could look like the first month of changing our guild more publicly opened with understandable and competitive tasks to get new people flowing into the NEAR ecosystem.
It also would be cool to create contest as mentioned before in our proposal
Bring new talents to the NEAR forum.
Make a fun quiz with prizes for users outside crypto to take actions.
Tho, we are still in the middle of the process of this campaign.
Want to see results first, because I feel that ViralSweep will do more than past mentioned contests. Campaign is launched for few days for now, and already got viral.
Link to contest: ⭐️ NEAR Stars Guild 🎁 $500 (NEAR) GIVEAWAY!
We added some great tasks as subscriptions to NEAR and Dapp projects Twitter, Medium, Youtube and Telegram. Create NEAR wallets, new forum users, sumbitting articles about NEAR (three articles already submitted by leaders of contest), youtube video reviews, retweets of Amber Metaverse gameplay. In total about 25 tasks we have there. If any additional need to be added, let us know. Near X Art already saw a boost of new followers. Our Twitter in few days increased by +600 subscribers. Backside is that leaders for most pointy tasks are just entering “ok” or “yes” in spots for links or just writing down their wallet.near.org adresses. To review contest when it ends (15 dec) it will take a full day to review winners.
I got subscripton on viral sweep for 50 USD, better one for more detailed social actions is for 200 USD, tho, ill try to make as most detailed table of interactions when contest is finished,
So to cover things up, the budget will look like this.
TOTAL: 9800 USD
Target NEAR wallet : starsguild.near
Wallet owner: Edgars Zunda
Marketing DAO team, if you see that some changes are needed to be added or any popular tasks can be added we want to make it as transparent as can be for crypto newbies to join and participate in tasks for NEAR ecosystem.
