Proposal description

My name is Scott Farnsworth. 

I am a Dash investor. 

And I have an idea to grow Dash Nation… by putting Dash in front of millions of people all across the globe (in a very exciting way).

Here it is:


I own a company called AircraftWraps. We specialize in extreme aero-sports marketing via events like high-speed, low-altitude pylon racing, air shows, and acrobatic flying.

I’m submitting this proposal because I want to introduce Dash to the over 1 million people I fly in front of every single year.

I’m not a writer. I’m a pilot. So let me tell you my plan in the simplest way possible I know:

  • Roughly 1-2 times a month I’ll fly one of my two planes at an air show, race or exhibition (a minimum of 200,000 people on average attend these events).
  • One plane is an XtremeAir XA42. It is the most technologically advanced acrobatic plane currently available. 
  • The second is a L39 jet - a plane with a rich military history - that I’ve specially modified for racing purposes .
Make no mistake, these planes attract a LOT of attention… and… I want to completely cover both of them nose to tail with Dash branding.

  But why would Dash want to do that?

  In a nutshell, Dash will gain Mass Exposure to International Markets.

  • Last year I won the European Air Race Championship (in front of 450,000 spectators)
  • The year before that I was the US National Air Race champion in my class
  • Hundreds of thousands of people attend these 4-5 day events in person
  • And millions more watch on TV as networks like Fox Sports broadcast them all over the world
  • And my exposure is only growing. As I become more successful in my racing career I’m getting invited to more events. Over the next few years I’ll fly in Thailand, China, Central America, Portugal, Croatia, the U.S. and England.

Are the people who attend air shows a good fit for Dash Nation?

I believe so based on information gathered by the International Council of Air Shows through their Event Organizer Survey. They say:

  • Air shows attract a well-educated and affluent audience
  • Close to 70% has some college education
  • More than 54% report a yearly income of $50,000 or more
  • And 61.1% of the spectators range in age from 26-49 (because of cryptocurrency inherent privacy, it’s hard to find data on exactly what age bracket uses cryptocurrency the most… but anecdotal reports suggest most people fall in this 26-49 age range).
Furthermore, 87.6% of attendees report recognizing sponsors… and… MORE IMPORTANTLY, 65.3% of attendees report they are likely to try a sponsor’s product or service.

(I can attest to this. In interview I ALWAYS mention sponsors. And without fail people whip out their phone and download apps for my sponsors when I mention them).

Simply put, I believe this is a great opportunity to put the Dash brand in front of millions of people all across the globe. And to do so in a very exciting and memorable way.

As I’ve mentioned, I’m a Dash investor. This means I have a vested interest in promoting Dash. And I will promote Dash every chance I get.

Here’s how I plan on doing that:

First, I’ll wrap both my planes nose to tail with Dash branding. Here’s what that will look like (pics of planes, and also a pic of a plane surrounded by a ton of people):

Remember, these are massive attention getters. Of course people come to watch the acrobatics while I’m flying. But these planes are also sitting out for the public to touch and see for the entire 4-5 day events. Imagine the impact and conversation starter a huge Dash logo will have on them as they admire the planes.

Second, the entire flight team will be outfitted with custom produced Dash branded flight gear.

This is essentially a walking International billboard for Dash while I or anyone on my team is being interviewed, giving presentations, or just talking with the public at the event.

But promotion isn’t limited to just the event…

Next, and this is what will get Dash in television, radio, and print for a fraction of the price it would cost to purchase advertising space…

Events like these are promoted for 3-4 weeks before the gates open. TV spots, print placement, radio, you name it. The ads prominently display both the pilots and aircraft participating. 

What this means is, Dash gets free advertising when the event promoters run all of these ads!

There’s more…

I don’t just fly at these events. My team and I run our mouths too.

During the 4-5 day race are media interviews, public appearances, fan and spectator interactions, etc. - all surrounded with Dash branding.

While being interviewed I will spend no less than 25% of the interview time promoting Dash.

This will put Dash on the map in a huge way.

But don’t take my word for it.

Here’s what my first large sponsor - Matthew Hurley, CEO of U.S. Industrial Tool (a 9-figure supplier to the aerospace industry) had to say about my work ethic when it comes to supporting my sponsors: (In the raw unedited file)




And of course, Dash will be promoted across all of our social media channels.

Furthermore, this will pay Dash dividends for years to come… because Dash will retain all promotional and media rights indefinitely to any and all content created during sponsorship.

Pictures, videos, public releases, interviews, articles written by media, Dash will own it all.

And I’ll make sure my media team sends Dash advertisers everything when directed.

On a more individual level…

I will personally promise to roll out the red carpet for any Dash member who attends an event I’m flying at. If you’ve ever wanted a behind-the-scenes look at low-altitude, high-speed airplane racing, here’s your chance.

No promises, but maybe I’ll bring home the National Championship again under the DASH banner!

Bottom line: When you sponsor me, I’ll put Dash in front of millions of qualified users around the globe… and… do everything in my power to promote Dash Nation and bring the evolution of currency to as many people possible.

So, how much is all of this going to cost Dash?

Well, if Dash was to purchase just one 30 second commercial spot during my win at the 2016 European Air Race Championship - paying average primetime rates - the fees would have been a MINIMUM of $120,000 dollars for those 30 seconds.

I’m not asking for that much.

But, keep in mind buying, flying, and maintaining airplanes is not cheap. And Dash will utilize my current fleet and equipment that is worth well in excess of $1 million dollars.

I’m proposing Dash sponsor me at the rate of 287 Dash per month for 6 months.

From talking to members on the Dash forum, I know the MNO community frowns on multi-month proposals from newcomers. But I’m asking for 6 months for the three following reasons:

First, the wraps for the planes are made from vinyl. Retail, for the two planes combined, this would cost one month of the DASH payment alone. . 

Now, I own a company that does this so the cost isn’t nearly as much. And I’ve already paid my graphic designers to create the wraps (I showed you the designs above).

But I still have to pay my laborers to print the wraps out and put them on the planes. This takes a ton of time to do right.

Bluntly, it doesn’t make sense for me to put all this time, effort, and money into creating and applying full plane wraps… race one, or maybe two events… and then pull everything off, go look for another sponsor, and start from scratch.

For this reason, our sponsorship contracts are generally 12 months.

Second, ditto what I said above for all of the Dash branded flight gear I’ll have to get manufactured.

Third, Amanda B. Johnson inspired me when she declared that she had “Placed her bet” on the winning Digital Currency. 

That simple statement sparked a passion within me to “place my bet” and grow DASH’s value doing the thing I know how to do the best- flying planes really, really fast.

I hope to be the spark within millions of others that join our community. I will assist DASH capture one MarketCap spot to another until DASH emerges as the clear out-performer in this market. 

But, as a marketing and racing business we need to plan and budget for events 3,4,6 or even 10 months in advance.

I have a 10 people on my team. They have families and children to support. Some of them have been with me for years.

I fully believe in the mission of Dash. But I have to temper that with my responsibility to the people who rely on me for a paycheck.

I hope you understand why that means I have to ask Dash for a six month commitment.

Please vote yes on this Dash proposal.

Your yes vote and support will unite the fastest digital currency with the fastest sport on the planet. 

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Scott Farnsworth

General admission is only $35 per day. Dash AeroSports has secured front and center VIP location for DASH owners. Dash AeroSports will be the premium location at the Reno Air Races. We will also be providing catering and additional Pit passes to the Dash experts that help the team introduce spectators to dash and the benefits of adopting dash.

We had asked for a 2-month transition timeframe. However, we have been able to network and call on some of our former marketing partners securing space at Oshkosh in July. We are also just leaving a Reno Racing Jet event now. We have only been funded for 4 days, but we took it upon ourselves to position the L39 for video marketing content. We were not able to get branding on the exterior of the Jet within the 4 day timeframe, but have already begun social media posting (one video with DASH-Digital Cash... DASH.ORG was viewed over 7000 times within 48hours of posting, the count continues to climb). Reno was also the first time that we began shooting the Reality TV footage (leading into the DASH sponsorship and transitioning to DASH AeroSports). We have also secured amazing full access and front and center location for the Reno Air Races in Sept. Our team has promised to provide an amazing virtual reality experience coordinated with the rest of the racing jets. This VR experience will be provided from our (DASH AeroSports) budget in exchange for special DASH logo placement at the bottom right of the NBC sports TV coverage.

Reno Race Update: I have been flying low level and high speed in the L39 this week. Formation flights with other racers in their L39s. This is a lot of fun, but we are compiling content to be utilized in social media and traditional advertising for Dash. Our instagram is now Dash_AeroSports and we are awaiting Facebooks review process for the switch to Dash AeroSports.


Outside of the cockpit:

Sept 13-17th is the Reno Air Races: http://airrace.org/

Dash AeroSports has met with Reno Air Race Association and been approved to have a huge presence at the races. Our team will be providing a unique exhibit free of charge to the Races in exchange to a NBC Sports "pilot interview" to be aired on national TV. In addition, I’ve provided 5 in-cockpit cameras for the jets free of charge. The cameras are provided with the understanding that “DASH” will be posted at the bottom right-hand side of all “In Cockpit” footage aired on NBC sports from the event.

We look forward to seeing every Dash user at the races and introducing new adopters too.

Regards,

Scott Farnsworth

I think this proposal is too expensive, too much investment in one marketing effort, and too grandiose. I favor a more grass-roots approach, where we communicate the real-world benefits of Dash in a more person-to-person mode, instead of a Dash logo on sexy plane in the sky, that is out of reach for most folks. Let's bring our marketing efforts down to earth. Voting no.

Did you read the whole proposal and the updates in the comments? Because what you are asking is what he already is doing.
Reply

$222,000 to fund one participant at an airshow, in a 6 month proposal. Not to sponsor the entire airshow, just planes and pilots planes attending it via an airplane wrap company.

No qualifying the audience for interest in finance, technical knowledge, or cryptocurrency awareness. No research into actual conversion metrics for app downloads, usage or anything pertinent.

Scotts Farnsworth - how much Dash do you own? Would you be willing to sign the keys of any of your master nodes?

Ryan Taylor: Are you watching this? Do you have a better plan to deploy Dash's extraordinary budget into effective marketing initiatives? Could you please chime in with your opinion on such a large expenditure at such an exceedingly critical moment in the market?
Reply

Thank you for commenting on the proposal.

With respect, the number stated is incorrect.

Please review our proposal and the comments on the forum.

You'll see that we have never discussed one show? We are several shows in the US, 2 in China, 1 in Portugal, 2 more in Europe that the Air Race Championships has not released yet (still in negotiations). This is before we received funding. As funding goes up... we add shows and add exposure level.

3 hours of FOX Sports covering the air races. Pilot profile interview alone is 2 minutes. Equivalent ad spot in a non-sporting event is $120,000 per 30 second spot.

DASH AeroSport Reality TV "Pilot" to be filmed during the Reno National AIr Races.

Film crew that specializes in Motor Sport Social Media filming. Booked within our budget.

Location for DASH pavilion area in Reno negotiated (Not easy) to be placed directly between the elevated location FOX film crew and the jet pits. (Anytime they want to have an image to the racing jets from a higher angle... they have to include our DASH logos on our planes and equipment.

Professional Photographer during Reno: Booked within our budget.

Manua Loa Helicopters in Hawaii integrating DASH into their system.

Strong Parachutes agrees to exclusive DASH payment for their aviation parachutes. Magazine article announcing this relationship.

We also have provided photos and media stories recounting our pavilion setup in which we (4-5 person crew) engage and educate spectators about our sponsor's products. Do to masterminds suggestion, we believe that we can have an ATM present too.

I believe dash is digital cash. Therefore everyone will be using dash. Everyone is a qualified audience by the term "Dash is Digital Cash".

I have provided ICAS statistics indicating a better than 80% sponsor recognition and a 63% try/adoption rate of spectators at an airshow or air race.

I and my director of operations will fly anywhere that the dash core team will meet with us. We would enjoy their direction in how they want us to represent the dash nation. Brand protection and recognition go hand and hand. We are only promoting what the developers are responsible for... this amazing dash.

*We are not funded yet. I have paid everyone out of my own personal dash. Our inter-team relationship will be in dash. (Exception is aircraft designs and studio use was in from my USD)

I think it's very clear based on locations, outlay, planning, resources, the level of aircraft, I will be self-funding a portion of this. I'm sure that is clear given what I've presented? Yes, I want my personal dash to go up in value. However, I want dash in the #1 spot of the marketcap more. Time to get to work.

I am taking my kids flying tomorrow, but my 888 number will be active on sunday between 10am-2pm EST in the US.

Please call if you would like to discuss more. It would be a pleasure. The last call session provided several conversations of support.

It even got us a public statement on the forum from one of our coversations:

"I just got off the phone with Scott Farnsworth of AircraftWraps.com and he is indeed @DashRacer. He said he would also post something on his facebook account.

He sounds like a good guy!"

Its official:

We will be shooting a “pilot” episode for Dash AeroSports - The Flight Team Powered by DASH.

The episode will be produced during the Reno National Air Races. Plenty of drama between a bunch of Type A race pilots and the stresses of running a race team during such a high profile event.

This is not a “hope” or “maybe it will happen”. This will happen. This sponsorship is a great storyline to be shared.

Once Cash Alternative TV can have me on again. I would love to discuss the details and overall “pitch” we provided to various content providers and the reason why we choose to go with our selection.

Dash deserves this spotlight.

Thank you to all that came before us. All levels of development, marketing, branding, etc.

The promotional video for the plane was a work of genius. They tease you for a while, and when they finally reveal this sexy, marvelous airplane emblazoned with the DASH logo it's like a bolt of lightning hits you. I had to stop the video because I was on the verge of shedding tears of joy.

@dashracer
Thank you for your kind words. Your statements are what fills my days with happiness. I try to create exactly what you talk about... internalized reactions that bring you into our would. I truly think the DAO's yes vote is life-changing for my team. We have supported projects in the past that we truly enjoy. Dash combined with our flight team is our ultimate sponsorship. We all believe in dash, but also believe that dash will change the world for the better. My team is working before sunrise and till late into the night right now! We are transitioning the team already on the faith that the vote finishes still in our favor. To make contact with as many individuals during each show day is our focus. Please come to a show or race and watch me dance the skies in the DASH XtremeAir or race to victory in DASH Force ONE racing jet! Then come to our display and event setup and let us talk dash. Thank you to the dash nation for the support and kindness.

"interact with the crowds and help introduce, install a wallet and seed a bit of DASH to the first 100 guest each day."

Hopefully, we can demonstrate that we actually agree... we must interact with our spectators throughout the event to introduce more than just a logo. To introduce and assist adoption.

To Scott Farnsworth - My wife and I will almost certainly travel to Reno in September to attend the Air Show especially to see you and the Dash aircraft. We will make lots of videos for YouTube and Facebook. Would it be possible for me to work with you or a member of your team to make buying tickets for the event and allowing Masternode owners to see up close the aircraft and visit with you and your team personally? I could create some written information and make it available to others. I will certainly need it for my own plans! We will be travelling from Medellin, Colombia, which is a long way to go, at great expense, so we want to make the most of it for ourselves and others.

You see, we provide the VIP access to essentially "subject matter experts" such as yourself. You hangout with us and when others new adopters are asking questions... we allow the community to help educate. present, demonstrate DASH. Crowds can be large. I have a 5 man team... we are getting groups of experts hanging out for the cost of the catering ;)

I just want to point out two aspects:

1.) the whole investment would be more than the equivalent of 250,000 USD

2.) going back in history there was a comparable endeavor with the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl - we can remind the results:
- nobody at that event was even aware of what Bitcoin is or even tried to put attention to it - except People who were insiders already
- the money was lost for the investor Bitpay
- Bitpay needed to reduce their staff and streamline processes to remain in business and recover

I'm trying to show that as the price and my budget go up, we are adding new features like the prize money to the fastest pilots of each class. Essentially I'm creating a short-term sponsorship under dash aerosports for other featured pilots. Vision: Huge Check that says "DASH" being photoed at every win. I'm worried about DASH exposer... not my personal glory. If it happens to be me as the winner. My entire check value will be donated to Shriner's Children Hospital in the of DASH-Digital Cash.

Sounds good. One thing you could do depending on how much the price increases in those 6 months (i would guess quite a bit) that you use that extra money to keep performing for some additional time before asking the network again to sponsor you for the next 6 (or so) months.

We see a favorable trend in the voting so I'm taking a personal chance/gamble. We are currently repositioning the L39 jet to Reno Nevada. We have an event during the first week of June. I won't be able to get the flight suit and helmet produced yet, but I'll have team shirts and hats prepared for DASH interviews and media interaction.

Voting yes but.... I do hear the concerns of others about really getting the people to connect the logo and branding to actually getting into Dash. With no onsite ATM etc it won't be easy to get them to buy in right then but...
An easy way to solve this is what i always suggest... giveaway some free Dash to people who set up a wallet app on their phone at the event, simple as that. Get them interested and get them hooked and then they will find a way to buy Dash once they get home and get read up on things.

Can an ATM be portable? We have an entire event setup that could include an ATM. Thanks, that's a great idea!

We will be assisting the setup of wallets on smartphones (Or computer if the spectator brings one). Then we will seed with $5USD in cash to the first 100 per day that comes to hang out.

Once they have dash in a wallet, they are in the club and get access to our VIP area!

These guys sell an ATM that is pretty portable. It can be bought with a stand or without a stand to be more portable. I think they also sell some custom blue colored Dash ATM's.

Horsepower has agreed to dash aerosports funding their DASH specific race team "Behind the scenes" in their very unique style.

Hopefully, another crew joins us in Reno too.

We will have a phone call tomorrow with NoCoast Productions. They are responsible for the Reality Show "Gas Monkey Garage". My Director of operations has been working on this for over a week now. I've very excited to pitch the Jet and Prop adrenalin show that will focus on the team being powered by DASH.

Wrong audience, wrong medium, wrong direction.

Sponsorships can work to produce a positive ROI, but for an ONLINE product like Dash that is not yet mainstream, the medium must be ONLINE.
Sponsoring circuses, air shows, land based non-crypto events, will not work. They will all lose money, and that's simply a fact.

Dash could produce positive ROI from sponsoring online forums, forex websites, crypto news sites, but not land based events. The one exception to that rule would be a land based event where the people are specifically meeting to discuss or learn about finance or crypto, such as conferences or seminars.

This will lose money and lots of it, voting no.

Agreed, no one has the opportunity to explain what Dash is. We are not at this stage where people automatically know what we do. They have no clue and they simply will not care to get involved. I would be surprised if he even got 5 people interested and invested in Dash per race honestly. The will to have Dash would need to be unreal, imagine not knowing anything about crypto and seeing this and saying ok I'm going to go to the ATM with cash, buy bitcoin, set up a wallet and store back up keys switch it over to Dash. No one will know how to do that stuff by looking at a logo

These people need convincing and a simple logo isn't going to convince anyone.

I just wanted to update:

Before I have had my first DASH deposited that wasn't purchased by me.

We have a Parachute Manufacture now setting up DASH payments

We have the Largest Helicopter Tour and Flight school now setting up DASH payments.

Their pilots will all be able to accept tips in DASH as well. I'll get you a number of their current pilots and how many they hire on a monthly basis. These young pilots will not turn down a tip because they dont have a wallet on their phone.

Either way, with respect... I've generated at least 100 new users in the last 24 hours.

This is my job, this is what I love to do. I take this very serious and demand huge results. (As demonstrated)

If I could be a musician... I'd write a song. If I was a programmer... I would join DASH and program.

I'm not those things... I'm a very capable pilot that has pursued passion first and financial gain thankfully has followed.

Extreme Piloting events and developing brands and brand recognition...

That's what I do... thats what I Love.

How did you get the numbers of 100+ new users in the last 24 hours?

And I can tell you one thing for certain. If there is no way for anyone at your shows to get into crypto then there is no point to this proposal. You can accept Dash at every little stand you want but if you don't let anyone know how to get into Dash and buy Dash AT THE AIRSHOW meaning they don't need to leave the airshow and figure it out themselves. Then this is just pointless

This article shows how my team interacts directly with the spectators for 8.5 hours during the show day. The aerobatic flight is only 20 minutes in the day. The surrounding time is spent direct marketing to individuals, encouraging social media photos with brand logo filled race planes and providing media stories such as the one in the link above.

I derived 100 conservatively from:
The number of flight instructors, tour pilots and a small portion of the foreign student base.

Still as I said no way to buy Dash... fix this problem. Then I'd say this is a good proposal. For now, it's still really bad and a waste of money in my eyes.

Hopefully I answered most of these concerns within the reply to the comment below? If not, let me know and I'll do my best to answer.

These events can quickly turn into a crypto meet upheld by DASH. The second largest airshow "Sun n FUN" became an App discussion meeting several times over the 5 day show.

2016 SUN ‘n FUN Numbers Released

The 42nd Annual SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In & Expo presented by VISIT FLORIDA and the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association took place April 5 –10, 2016 in Lakeland, Florida. We are pleased to release the following data and fun facts:

How will you track new Dash downloads? How will you track new Dash users?

Online ads for online products work because important data like this can be tracked. Without the most simple tracking metrics like this, Dash could literally lose the entire $175,000 over six months and never even know it. Land based sponsorships are famously unsuccessful and wasteful for online startups, which is exactly what Dash is right now.

If you care about Dash, you'll sell your airshow sponsorship to some other company that will be better fit.

Thank you.

Partnering with IOS or Android wallet app developers will allow us to geo-reference new users within our event area both during the show and a specified timeframe following the event.

Analyzing the data allows us to continue or redirect our future support of that event.

This is exactly how we track our current events with MyRadar (Great app btw, best high definition weather imagery within a single touch!)... sorry... It's the advertiser within me ;)

honestly, this is the type of information I hate divulging about our marketing plans in a public forum. As a business, I rely on these and many other details that provide us with our proven track-record.

However, this is general knowledge within the App space and I thought it might be enlighting to our voters.

I don't believe the size of your audience is the problem. The issue is that these are unqualified viewers not specifically interested in cryptocurrencies or finance, and they aren't in a position to be downloading core clients, creating exchange accounts, linking bank accounts, and securing their Dash correctly.

When they get home from your event, they may be in better position to do those things required for proper setup. However, Dash's budget would exponentially be better spent advertising to online groups of people who are already one hop away from becoming a new user.

Successful advertising requires the right medium to the right group of people. This airshow is the wrong medium to the wrong audience.

P.S. I would love to go to one your airshows, talk Dash, and talk about effective ways to harness your resources to spread the word.

To answer you PS: I'd love to see you there. Regardless of the vote, I'll be doing exactly what's in the proposal. I hope it's with DASH and I dont have to put a Gecko on my plane :(

To add color: I hope to inspire our spectators to do as I did... visit ABJ's amazing content on YouTube. Not only is she a face of DASH, but the content and educational interviews she conducted took this Cowboy hat wearing, 4X4 truck driving, race pilot into crypto and then convinced me that DASH was the right horse in this race.

Update: Finished the call minutes ago. 11:04pm here... because marketing doesn't wait!

Mauna Loa Helicopters in Hawaii has agreed to accept DASH as payment for flight training and helicopter tours. They will also encourage their tour pilots to have a DASH wallet on their smartphones to accept tips in the form of DASH.

Mauna Loa Helicopter is the largest helicopter school in Hawaii. A large portion of their students are visiting students from china to obtain their ratings. Mauna Loa recognizes the benefits to their students often receiving family financial support from China. This relationship should encourage dash use on both in China and the US (Hawaii).

Recorded Skype interview with Mauna Loa Helicopter's owner tomorrow scheduled.

Recorded Skype interview with Strong Parachutes head of marketing tomorrow scheduled.

I will compile both interviews on Youtube and post for the dash communities viewing.

Please let me know if there are any questions you'd like me to ask?

If you are in Hawaii and looking for a helicopter tour... please support the business that support DASH

Scott Farnsworth

Scott, you seem like an incredibly cool, capable guy, and a great pilot. I believe that you have Dash's best interests in mind. This proposal will waste an obscene portion of the Dash budget, and it will squander the opportunity your sponsorship could give to the correct product.

Dash is the wrong product for your medium. A technical, online product like Dash has no synergy with a crowd with no access to their computers.

If sponsorship is to be purchased for land based events, there needs to be a 30 minute lesson/speech/seminar attached where people have the chance to focus and learn.
Reply

First, thank you. I can tell by your kind tone that you understand my intent is to benefit our dash community. I believe I can actually make a positive impact for all people regardless of group, border, class. It's my belief that crypto can apply to everyone, and more specific... dash. Dash is the clear winner/leader.

Our crowds attend each event with a computer in their hand, taking pictures, texting friends about their experiences, calling someone to tell them about the amazing "Thing" some crazy pilot did with his plane -Thats me ;b

I want to be an example of how dash lives off the computer. Fueling-dash, team member lunches-dash, rental car payment-dash, that huge donut my wife tells me not to eat... everyday-dash.

I agree, we will need lessons, but I never did well in a classroom being lectured. I have learned that important specific information can be conveyed and absorbed within the conversations with others. Our team will focus on sharing information for 8.5 hours of a 10 hour event. (1 hour before the flight I remove myself and concentrate on my performance. Engine start to engine stop is 30 minutes of "Ultra concentration" to the flight... and then we go back to shaking hands, picture taking and explaining why DASH is amazing and how it can benefit our audience.

Thank you again for your kind tone and kind words. I hope that I can convince you to come to our event and discuss DASH not only to us, but also to our fans.

Regards,

Scott Farnsworth

Let's say, just theoretically, that the proposal does not pass. It's too expensive, it's too soon, we don't know this guy, whatever the reason...

I would hope that when Evolution comes out, and the price goes up, and the Treasury budget goes up, and we both need and want Big Marketing, that the owner of the current proposal would approach us again. And perhaps be in conversation with the community on the Slack channel and the Dash.org forum in the mean time.

I always like to have a plan B. And maybe a plan C.

I'm very sorry. Reviewing my proposal, it appears I understated my total role as the DASH Racer and airshow pilot (Under promise and over deliver has always ensured lasting relationships). This is not only for the team, my piloting, advertising, etc. The race or airshow weekend ends and my team and I begin calling our contacts to market the benefits of DASH and how these operations would benefit from digital currency specific to DASH. When we are not developing business realtions for DASH we are contacting next weeks local area media. I completely wrap myself and ALL my resources into the marketing and business development for DASH. 7 days a week and dealing around the world on a 24 hour clock. I pride myself more on what I do for my sponsor's outside of the cockpit than the 1st place finishes on the race course.

Videos to follow soon as I wrap up DASH exclusive deals from China Air Racing DASH Prize money, to a Parachute company accepting exclusively DASH for digital currency purchases.

Largest Helicopter tour company in Hawaii allowing DASH purchases and tipping of the helicopter pilot in DASH.

If you voted No, please come back and visit our videos that will be published soon. I don't want to tell you what I'll be doing, I want to show you before I even receive a single DASH.

This just finalized while I was typing:

Update: I just completed negotiations with the premium aviation manufacturer of Parachutes. Social media press release and magazine article submitted. I was able to convince Strong Parachutes to accept the digital currency system as payment. I then negotiated the exclusive use of DASH within their aviation and emergency division to enjoy the comarketing benefits joining the DASH AeroSports team.

Another way to think about it is we're paying $0.17 per view for 1million views ($170,000/1,000,000) and if 1% of the people seeing his ad "buys" at least $17 worth of Dash then it's worth it.

Is there a way to confirm the number of people attending an airshow/race/exhibition?
Reply
2 points,2 months ago
The fallacy here is that 1% of the people seeing the blue smudge on Scott's airplane will not buy Dash, or even learn about it. As incredible as the reality of it is, the Dash community would be lucky to get a .001% conversion rate on this type of sponsorship.

For a land based event with people who are congregating to enjoy airplanes (not congregating to enjoy a lesson in finance) there will no stickiness or virality to the ads.

Voting no. Land based sponsorships will be a vast wasteland of lost investment capital for Dash if this is the type of proposal that passes.

Thank you for adding to the conversation. I appreciate your statement regarding conversion rates. However, the third party data provided within the proposal disagrees and actually represents the amazing relationship aerosports and their fans share.

"Furthermore, 87.6% of attendees report recognizing sponsors… and… MORE IMPORTANTLY, 65.3% of attendees report they are likely to try a sponsor’s product or service."

Add in my teams proven effective fan/crowd interaction once back on the ground like this:

http://www.theledger.com/news/20170406/virtual-ride-takes-visitors-up-with-air-race-champion-at-230-mph

I see your wish to keep DASH only on the internet. I'm sorry, but I truly believe that DASH is one of the greatest product/service/inventions within my lifetime. I believe dash will have a positive effect on the world and I want to be part of that. I want to help share that benefits with everyone and anyone that will watch our media interview, watch me fly, come and discuss with my team during or after an event.

I hope you'll come to one of our airshows. I would love to discuss DASH. My team will provide a DASH VIP experience at each show. Every event will have a DASH MEET UP at our reserved area.

Truly... thank you for allowing me to try and convince you that mass adoption will benefit us and society as a whole.

Marketing is like mining for gold. If you mine good pay dirt, you pay for costs plus more. If you mine a chunk of dirt, however enormous, that contains no gold particles, you lose money.

I want mass adoption, too. You'll have a great large audience at your airshows, and they'll have a great time there. They'll be receptive to everything you say, but they won't convert to users because Dash is a more complex product than Coca-Cola. A glance at a logo, and some high profile mentions won't convert.

If you have an email list of high value ticket purchasers, or a way to qualify small groups of large donors and get them in a room for an hour long sit down with a projector, those are the things that could produce a positive ROI.

I'm glad you stated this.

Within 24 hours I have gained agreements with Strong Parachutes and Mauna Loa Helicopter tours and flight school, Hawaii's largest helicopter operation. They both brought up wanting bitcoin too, I told them if they wanted representation with the DASH AeroSport team that we (DASH) need exclusive access as their crypto payment system.

Crypto is complex.... and that is why dash will be successful. Evolution strips the user of having to understand what is going on in the background. DASH provides an interface that even my grumpy Italian father-in-law seems to be able to use!

If it was just putting some fancy decals on a plane that will get seen by a lot of people, I would vote no.

But, it's not just decals. The guy owns Dash, he gets it, it's a lifestyle. He took the red pill, he can't stop thinking about Dash, he wants to tell the whole world about Dash.

I think he would make a fine new spokesperson for Dash.

The price is not a trivial amount of money. After the graphics are paid for, any chance for a lower monthly rate?

Also, very interested in your value added proposition if the value of Dash shoots up. I'm thinking yes, but I want to see the answer for how to account for the additional value if Dash doubles, or triples.

Yes, red pill complete. BTW, I paid my team member today in DASH for the first time today as we prepare to establish ALL transactions dash based. (He actually made $2 extra bucks in the 1.5 seconds it took to arrive in his wallet. (Thanks Jaxx for providing a DASH IOS wallet!) Can you imagine how much DASH a jet engine will eat on a DASH debit card!? :(

Yes, we will be filming me fueling the planes and using DASH debit cards to convey that you can actually spend DASH in the "real world". Interacting with the fueling crew and installing a wallet so that we may tip them in DASH. (we prefer to "storyline" interactions in place of outright adverts)

Thanks for the question: The transition and setup cost will be spent on the first 2 months budget. After that, if we lower our budget below the cost of operations nobody would like the results. I intend to provide everything in the proposal and you may have also seen in the previous post that I am exceeding the proposal with delivering business adopters currently, even before I've received a single DASH.

Needless to say, Yes! I'm a believer. I will exceed the proposal as I have with every marketing relationship in my past. However, it is my desire to prove our worth so that DASH and DASH AeroSports has a relationship pushing into the top spot of CoinMarket cap index. Anyone that rolls their eyes at this statement I offer to provide my personal cell phone discreetly so that I can explain exactly why I know DASH will arrive on top)

On the other side of the payout question. I recognize the need to limit a runaway upmarket. I am currently reviewing solutions so that I can provide what the DAO has indicated as a friction point.

I know how this marketing game works and it a bit silly that still has that impression on me. I would like DASH to have that impression on people as well. Instant sent and private sent, and the easiest to use wallet (evolution) while still giving you full control.

Aerobatic racing for that reason is a good partner for DASH.

I don't post these numbers for any other reason than to be transparent. That is 1 million on me just in aircraft.

Now we need cameras, videographer, still photographer, drone, hotel rooms, crew chiefs, director of operations, transportation of aircraft to locations, etc, etc.

I think the math shows, I'm not trying to make $28000 per month by spending over a million. When I wrote the proposal dash was a little lower and we aggressively worked the cost numbers to provide dash with maximum value to investment.

In this AeroSport team, dash is getting the amazing pricing and we will request participation from storage devices, debit cards, services that provide value to our DASH community.

You notice in the ledger article photos that we do a FULL display for our sponsorship with team crewmembers engaging clients/adopters with answering questions and helping setup up the app or in this case, setup the wallet and receive a $5 seed deposit (limited to the first 100 per day)

Everything. Has anyone done any due diligence on this?
Someone we've never seen before shows up and claims to love Dash. Then asks for $30,000.00/month. And we just say "Sure, sounds good".
Note that he ignored all comments/question regarding escrow and price fluctuation and just submitted in final.
There is a guy around here who keeps saying "MNO's are stupid". I'm beginning to think he's right.
Thank you for the response and I completely understand your point. If you google "Scott Farnsworth Pilot" my life is basically and open book because of being in marketing.

I just want to let you know that I did not ignore the comments. I am forming a value and plan of how to address this. You'll notice with me, I don't open my mouth till I know I can do what I say I can. Because, once I say I'm Going to do something... I'll spend my own money to complete what I said I'd do.

When I started developing this proposal, dash was $77. At $84 I started typing. A great problem to have is that dash is $103 and going up. I'm developing a plan to mathematically provide longer calendar terms based on dash movement. In turn, I'm looking for non-fixed cost that can be "parked" if dash goes below $78 (there is the margin)

That is a big out-of-nowhere proposal. Very little pre proposal discussion, no modifications based on that discussion, and no response (yet) to several questions raised. I suggest you get involved in the community a bit more. Do some Skype interviews with Amanda and others.
You are an "investor", sign a message with an address that you own please.

I would love to be interviewed with ABJ. After the interview, I personally invite Amanda B. Johnson to attend the Reno National Air Races in Septemeber and enjoy our DASH VIP hospitality tent. Afterward, ABJ could write an article highlighting the speed of DASH and the sponsorship of the planet's fastest sport. I will also, with her permission provide a VIP media flight in the DASH aircraft of her choice, demonstrating how our team treats the media at our events.

L39 - DASH Force One
XtremeAir XA42 - We need a really cool dash marketing name for this plane!

From the looks of it the pre-proposal has been created at the same time as the proposal, when proposals require a certain amount, people need time more time to judge to proposal, at often result in quick "NO" (better safe than sorry). I am quite certain that would have been the case for the ALT36 proposal, if they did not setup a pre-proposal.

Also I am wonder isn't DASH evolution+this type of campaign a better idea, people enjoy these types of events. I have not only been to a few airshows myself, so i can not be certain. But for me this is a yes, when evolution comes out right now I think its to early. At any rate please to make this a one time proposal.

Question)
What is the normal going rate for this type of advertisement ?

Sorry, I wanted the aircraft artwork designs so that I could show the community our vision instead of just explaining. Our designs were created by an artist... and I didn't want to rush the artist. I love what he came up with!
