Proposal description

Dash Airline Campaign Proposal
Dash should soon become the Market Cap leader but Dash is lacking some marketing resources to help make this happen.  My team is proposing an airline advertising campaign that will reach millions of people with exceptional demographics in hope of spreading the word about Dash around the world.

Objective: We propose running a 90 second video infomercial on American and Virgin America airlines. The American Airlines Ad will run for a 1-month period, and the Virgin America Ad will run for a two-month period, reaching millions of people.  These segments will run on the video screens located on the aircraft seat backs. Most commercials will air twice per flight on average.

The video is titled “What is Dash” and has been edited to remove 11 seconds to meet the airlines standards and time allocation. We believe that this video is the best one available to introduce people to Dash.
The video is located here https://www.dropbox.com/s/et93gz1f7kcugwe/DashEdit1%283%29.mp4?dl=0

Cost:
The cost is 171 Dash (Equivalent to $27,947 USD).
Due to the recent volatility of the market we added an additional 10 Dash to ensure that we can run both Ads if the market takes another downward swing (The 10 Dash is included in the 171 Dash total).
We also request 5 Dash for reimbursement of the proposal fee (The 5 Dash is included in 171 Dash Total).

Reach:
The estimated number of views for this advertising campaign is approximately 2,254,930. That’s about 1.1 cents per view, compared to a 30 second Superbowl ad price of $5,500,000, or roughly 5 cents per view.

Why is airline advertising effective?
In a fast-changing digital world, it is becoming increasingly difficult to reach consumers on the go.  In-flight video programming is one last remaining ways to effectively reach millions of passengers in a captive, controlled environment. With in-flight programming; we can reach an emotional connection with an exceptional demographic, through an engaging video feature.
People pay attention to a good story with captivating visuals. Frequent flyers are successful professionals with sophisticated tastes and the income to pursue their interests. In-flight media programming places traditional advertising in front of these elusive consumers at a time when they are not distracted by the internet, cell phones or on-demand devices.

Some more facts:
  • Most viewers agree that in-flight television is a good way to pass time.
  • 58% of airline program members who typically take flights that offer television programming usually watch it.
  • 47% of those who watched the programming could remember the specific ad that was shown.
  • 36% of those who take flights that offer video entertainment have watched it on at least three out of their four past flights.

Duration:
The American airlines program reaches our target audience for 30 consecutive days, in a captive and receptive environment, potentially reaching 955,000 people of which 100,000 are business or First-class passengers.

Seat back Video On-Demand is offered cabin-wide on select A330 and 777 aircraft flying international routes.

Why is In-flight media preferred over TV?A national TV commercial in 2011 cost about $345,000 in production costs alone.  The cost to run the ad in a popular nationally televised
program during 2011 was more than $100,000.
 
Summary
This infomercial will reach typically affluent and well-educated people, who for one reason or another, are trapped on an airline for several hours.  Let’s take advantage of this fact.
We can reach a captive audience of almost 2.25 million people for a grand total of 171 Dash.
We believe this campaign will educate people about Dash and those people will spread the word around the world for a fraction of the cost of a typical TV advertisement.
 
Our Team
Our team consists of a computer professional with over ten years’ experience, and two retirees that have over Forty years of experience in special event management and marketing. We also have over 50 years’ experience working with contracts with State and Federal governments.
We have several other unique proposals in work now and we would appreciate your support of this proposal so that we may move forward
with more exciting ones.
Let’s make some money for the entire Dash community!

Notes:
  1. USD/Dash price based on one Dash equals $163.15 as listed on coinmarketcap.com at the time of this writing.  Any unused funds will be used for research and expenses related to
    sponsoring a major concert tour (that will be our next proposal which we are working concurrently), or donated to the campaign of your choosing.
    We can also write a new pre-proposal to facilitate return of any unused funds.
  2. American Airlines: If the proposal is accepted this month, the ads would run during the month of Nov 2017.
  3. Virgin America Airlines: If the proposal is accepted this month, the ads would run during Dec 2017 and Jan 2018.
  4. Project Managers: Kerry Smith, Zachary Smith. Team members: Jim Conley and Jenna Vaziri. All four are stakeholders as we currently own Dash.
  5. There are no major risks or constraints associated with this campaign other than the market price volatility of Dash. We have added about 6% or 10 Dash to this proposal to compensate for the recent downward market swing. If the market goes down by more the 6% we will attempt to renegotiate the price with the airlines so that we can run the Ads with the given amount of Dash.
  6. Proof of advertisement runs will be certified and provided in written form by the airlines.

Will there be closed captions on the screen? There's a lot of information conveyed in that video, via solely audio, and w/o captions that will be lost on folks who aren't able to hear.

Apparently there must be a logical reason why there is such a staunch loyalty to Dash Central that I am not aware of. Please share. However when I asked on various occasions to have the Bitcuners proposal removed since it was 3 months expired I was well reminded that Dash Central is Rango's baby and is not a Core entity nor is it an official Dash website. I would hate to see super solid and intelligent proposals not get funded because of a feudal loyalty type thing. We desperately need better quality proposals to succeed as a coin project. This is one. Follow the link or explain why not.

This is where i come to check my masternode payments and vote from. It offers a lot of features other sites don't like being able to vote with all my mn's with a push of a button and to be able to get emails when they are paid or have an issues and go down.

DC has it's issues though, like not being for masternode owners exclusively which allows trolls to run wild as they have been and continue to do. If a new site comes along that does everything DC does and fixes other issues i have brought up then i would consider switching.
Rango is also a long time community member who operates on donations, so there is some staunch loyalty too.

This is Rango's site. And a person is posting here looking for votes. And that person does not want to explain his proposal to the people who are on this site. OK, so be it. Good luck.

This proposal was automatically posted here. We are looking to claim ownership of this proposal and will edit it to include the full details as soon as possible. The proposal was created through Dash Treasury and we do not yet have the private key to sign and claim this as our own.

The proposal owner is looking for votes, and the MNOs are looking for proposal owners. Narroway makes sense.

The blockchain very conveniently stores the URL address for external information, which in this case is www.dashtreasury.org/p-2969.prop. If you follow that link with a single click, you can see the full proposal. It's not hard.

Discussion can still take place here if you want, so you don't have to create any extra logins.

Description is only one thing, another thing - proposal owner should be here for replying on questions if anyone will have some. I had read preproposal thread on dash forum and I like the idea. But maybe me or someone else want to ask the proposal owner something before voting.
