Proposal description

PROJECT TERMS:

Only 1 Month, 25 Dash, One time payment.
Go here to watch a video that explains the project in full detail.

OVERVIEW: 

3 articles written per week and a total of 3+ YouTube videos. The videos will be put on my existing Stellabelle YouTube channel in a folder named DASH For Newbies. I'll be doing social media as well.

DETAILS ABOUT BLOG SERIES

Leveraging my existing follower base on Medium and Steemit, I will write 3 Dash articles per week and post them to my accounts. Some of them will also be published in the Hackernoon Magazine which has 83K followers, since I’m already a contributing writer. [Followers on Medium: 1300, Followers on Steemit: 1890]. These will be shared on Twitter, and I’ll create weekly Twitter Moments from notable DASH posts.

DATA FROM RECENT DASH ARTICLES I WROTE

The three articles I wrote about Dash last week have done extremely well, in terms of being shared on Twitter and analytics on Medium. A few people told me they joined the Dash slack channel because of reading my articles. Here’s a recent look at one of my Medium Dash articles’ analytics: 1.4k views in 3 days.
For the Hackernoon publication, which has 83K followers, I’ll create tech-savvy articles similar to the one I wrote recently titled, I Just Told A Robot To Send A $60 Tip To My Electronic Wallet. I’ll also be writing articles similar to this example title: DASH For Newbies: What’s The Easiest Way To Convert Dash To Dollars?

Most of the articles will be formatted in the Q & A style, and special emphasis will be placed on asking regular people their main questions about Dash and then turning their questions into blog posts and videos. This will be done for SEO reasons, as most people just type in questions they need answered in Google. The closer my articles are to the questions that everyone is asking about Dash, the higher up they will appear in search results.

 DASH FOR NEWBIES YOUTUBE VIDEOS

I’ll create at least 3 different YouTube videos and these will be placed in my existing YouTube channel in a folder called DASH For Newbies.
I’d like to try a variety of different video styles to see which kind is successful. Humor will play a large part in the videos. Throughout the month, I’ll provide the analytics data to the Dash community so they can assess the effectiveness of the videos and articles.

 TARGET AUDIENCE

The people on Medium fit the tech-savvy demographic that is my target audience and here’s a quote that describes them:

“..Medium’s audience is made up mostly of the sort of educated, upwardly mobile, and media savvy people who like to ponder the future of technology or the cultural significance of the Coachella music festival. A full 95% of Medium's readers are college graduates, and 43% of them earn six figures or more.” -Native Advertising
I think women will be naturally attracted to my content and bringing more women into Dash’s ecosystem is definitely one key to mainstream adoption. "Women account for 85% of all consumer purchases including everything from autos to health care."

Content quality is okay. I dont see it getting visibility outside the crypto space to a wider audience though. I hope I am wrong, keep it up :)

Just wanted to post an update because I just launched the Dash For Newbies Medium publication which you can see here: https://medium.com/dash-for-newbies

I've started writing articles for this publication and also another contributing Dash member has written one for it. You can see her article about investing in a Masternode share in the publication.

Been reading slack; would have voted yes even with the 45 Dash you first thought of. 25 Dash is well worth all our yes-votes!

One thing I wanted to add is if anyone was wondering what my background is, and my previous writing experience. That is all detailed here in this post: https://medium.com/@stellabelle/introduction-to-stellabelle-for-the-dash-masternode-network-b8535c2c2992#.dnyaoorw6

As explained in the slack chat, right now the opportunity cost of not creating a dash is probably higher than not creating it, provided that in some way there is a positive effect.

The cost per contact might be high here, but in the end, if 25 dash are not created the upside is 0 (not close to 0: is 0). So I think that even if it's a bit pricy from a mktg perspective it still makes sense.

Hope we can track somehow the results. You have my nodes.

Well, I can track results from Medium and YouTube. Medium tells me how many people viewed, how many read, where the views came from, and how many people recommended it. Since the Hackernoon publication has 83K followers, I'm going to tailor the articles for them. I just checked the robot article and it's now 1.5k views, up from 1.4k from a few days ago.

I see no reason to deny you this request considering the caliber of work you can provide and the exposure we would get in a largely untapped market. For me this proposal is a no-brainer, voting yes.

Keep up the hard work, and thank you for joining Dash Nation!

Thanks for your support. You're an essential part of the newbie puzzle, providing us with a feeling of being welcome....

I think its a good idea but a tad expensive if you break it down in terms of exposure per follower. I wish you luck in passing the proposal and in all fairness it likely will, but if it does not you have my votes at around 10 Dash.

Thanks for your comment. I arrived at that price after extensive feedback from the Slack chat. This is full-time work for me so that amount only covers my living expenses for one month. I am the only breadwinner in my family plus I also support my parents, so that is how I arrived at that amount.
