Election Marketing Timeline from the GWG for the NDC

Hey community,

I want to share the Election Marketing Timeline to share the scope of our work in the GWG (marcom team, me and @RussLive215). We have been busy developing both the plan and the assets within the Degen WG, Marcom WG and with players in the community to ensure the following:

  1. A clear timeline to hit the critical numbers of 3000 onboarded humans to IAMHUMAN and to get 500 people to vote in the elections

  2. That we have bounties and clear programs to involve the community at a creative level (writing, images, and videos) to help drive content creation

  3. Ensure that Russ and I are working in tandem with all the many players driving the NDC.

Please see below. We’d love your feedback. I will also be sharing our GTM later for it’s very extensive and we want your ideas and engagement.

Thank you! – Sarah
