It's Council Time

The council of the Marketing DAO Vertical will assess your proposal, relying on the details shared on your forum post (the more detail the better!

If your forum post is adequate and thorough, the council may vote to pass your proposal without any comments whatsoever, this is perfectly normal.

If needed you can always edit the original forum post to add more information if required by a council member.

When your proposal is passed, it will receive an “[Approved]” Status.


Proposal Approved? Let's Get Marketing!

You will need to follow the new community payout guidelines here:

You can find the link to the MarketingDAO on Astro for your poll here.

Please ensure to check back on your post to see if there are notes or comments from a council or member (email notifications can be enabled as well) to ensure there is the highest chance of success for your proposal to pass

If your proposal fails, there will be a reason in the comments of your forum post. Please feel free to edit your post, taking the comments into consideration, and re-submit a payout proposal.

On that note, happy BUIDLing! :tada:

Thanks for doing this! We’ve found it very challenging to effectively market our guild and run projects and activities with the current funding limits :rocket:


Great one…Thanks for the insight…can a proposal be submitted as an individual, or it has to come under the umbrella of a Guild… Thank you


Good morning! Up to you :wave: Everyone is welcome here. Have a great day !
