Proposal description

     Hello, DASH Community!
     We are  new Dash members and very glad to be a part of you. We contribute to DASH interests and do it with great pleasure.
   Being DASH digital money investors we want DASH to develop dynamically and reach its objective to turn into a full widespread payment service with  multiple useful options.
    We follow DASH news and watch videos from DASH conferences. Especially, Amanda B.Jonson’s DASH detailed and Ryan Taylor’s reports are very inspiring for us.    Obviously, DAO potential is huge. Therefore, we’re passionate as the active followers  to be among leading DASH promoters. We’re sure that our marketing activity specially designed for DASH will provide great benefit to the Community.     
    Our Proposal
    We are going to promote DASH digital money system throughout the Russian market via professional sport and different sport communities. DASH promotion especially through sport is the main key of our marketing concept. This project is considered to be held for 6 months with extension. As experts, we do believe that in most cases short-term actions provide short-term effects. Therefore, we always prefer thinking of several steps ahead doing coherent and scrupulous work.  These 6 months are divided into two periods of 3 months each.
    Here is our Proposal for the first 3 months.
    Supported by DASH, we intend to develop Dash Sport Channel on YouTube with DASH attributes and symbols. We’re going to promote DASH a specific  way. Namely, we will invite athletes and sport media persons for 15-minute dynamic and positive interviews that will contain different actual issues. However, every time we will lead our dialogs to DASH digital cash topics (Dash People YouTube Channel).
    On the one hand, this way we give our audience an opportunity to find out opinions of media people according to crypto currency and digital money market. On the other hand, we follow our interests and expand our DASH promotion among viewers and increase the number of DASH members.
    The fact is that digital cash era has already begun. This is inevitable process. Our conversations are considered to convince people that each sane person who owns assets and wants to be aware about the latest phenomenon should plan the future in line with the new crypto currency reality.
    In the framework of our Proposal, additionally we will support our media activity with a sponsorship program for athletes who participate in domestic and international competitions. The program includes providing DASH branding for sports apparel and sports accessories.

    Key points why we chose namely this DASH promotion strategy.

    There are three main factors:
    1. The common interest effect.
   An environment, where people bond with one activity or lifestyle, is always favourable for a new product introduction. Often practice demonstrates that inspiration of one or several persons is quite enough to attract others in a certain group. It happens since people trust each other and they are loyal mutually. They connect easier and ready to share thoughts. However, more valuable point is that they are often ready to follow their colleagues’ recommendations. Obviously, the sport sphere has got this factor well performed.

     2. The hyper segmentation.
This is an actual tool for each good marketer today. It already proved its effectiveness. Therefore, we involve people to DASH community using careful targeting and spread our influence not throughout Russia in common but first of all among the certain community. 

     3. Our own sphere of influence.
During our long business activity we’ve gained huge base of customers and business partners. There are also athletes of high qualification in our list. They reached great sport achievements in Russian competitions and International games. Starting with them we are going to realise our project.

        How  will our activity benefit DASH? 
  1. DASH will obtain about thousands audience via our promotion work within 3 months .
  2. New DASH members will be qualitatively informed and prepared to upcoming DASH Evolution. Supported by our enthusiasm, these people will become active DASH followers. They will also influence business and make it use DASH payment system.
  3. DASH will gain new investors. We are going to attract people who can also become efficient promoters too. DASH will  get new ideas and proposals.
  4. DASH will get our team as long-term solid partner with rich experience in business and marketing on the Russian market.
      Our next step to promote DASH deeper and deeper into our market is DASH Ambassador center placed on a crowded street of Saint-Petersburg. Further, DASH Ambassador point will be organised in Moscow. We are intending to accumulate people around our place and give them free consultations and express training for frequently asked questions. Our aim to show  people that DASH is a real financial instrument supporting by the same real and usual people as they are. We think this is necessary to make society start getting used to Dash ecosystem.This topic description will be in our next Proposal.Now we already launched Dash awareness program at International Bank University (Saint-Petersburg, Russia). On 22th, April the first crypto currency and blockchain technology conference is going to be held.

         Our concrete actions now.

         1. We‘ re praparing materials to take interviews regarding to our concept. Now we've got  only interviews  on our YouTube channel that we previously made on actual issues for our Russian people (such as gavermental cryptocurrency, disapearing jobs, smart-contract) to start gathering a real audience step by step.  We've prapared promo animated video about Dash. 
        2. We’re collaborating with really crazy guys who experience Incredible Motorised Off-road Expeditions around the world. One of the guys is in our Dash promoters. Shortly, they perform dozens of expeditions with different vehicles: aqua bikes, snowmobiles, ATVs and outboard engine vessels. The total mileage of these trips has already exceeded 100,000 km.

I am aware of your previous work because I visited your channel about a month ago and saw your video of AlexRu, excellent! I am going to vote YES. This proposal is requesting a reasonable amount for what it has proven to offer. I am glad to see your channel targeting people in Russia.
For future proposals, I would recommend focusing on fewer goals. My concern for this proposal is that perhaps it attempts to do too much or that it is talking about things that belong in future proposals. A proposal should simply state what you offer the community with the funds of this proposal and not offer too many items. But still, keep up the good work! I highly recommend that other MNOs subscribe to the Dash People YouTube channel:

ec1warc1, thank you a lot for your recommendation and very inspiring words! I've got about concentration on the current Proposal activity. I will act step by step. Frankly to say, DASH is so dynamic. Everyday something new happens. Much information. Many interesting discussions. It makes me feel succeed to do everything at one time. However, I realize effectiveness is the first.
ec1war1, thank you once again. I appriciate you for your support! This is very important to me.

ec1warc1, thank you for your care. Wow, our proposal has allready passed!!! It is so great! We are happy. It makes us feel very inspired! ec1warc1, sure. We will be happy to help you with reaching people in Russia, Estonia and Belarus. We are not targeting on Latvia, Lithuania and Finland yet. However, these markets are close and similar to us. I will think about how to do it better and help with it too.
0 points,10 months ago
No, not really. It is presented as an idea, and I don't believe that the money requested could actually open an embassy, and I don't think anyone expects that either. I think this proposal is fine as it is. It is going to take some time to form your project in the way that best suits you and Dash. This is fine, especially because you request a reasonable amount.
0 points,10 months ago
Dear MNOs,
I appriciate you for your attantion to our Proposal. For me everything is exiting since this is the first time I've ever been involved in such amazing project like this. I think for many people cryptocyrrency and blockchain remain to be a new topics especially in Russia because of our cirtain govermental activity.
I catch your every word and vote! I am reading all discussions on other Proposals being voted now. I see how you are partial and caring about Dash successfully development. I realy acknowledge one of your basic principle "share of mind" (as TanteStefana mantioned it at Ben Swann's Proposal).
Therefore, I am much concerned about 42 'No" to my Proposal. Please, help me to understand "No" reasons.
( I jealous that Ben gets so hot debates). : ) in a good sence, of course.
I can see "Good Luck" comments under my Proposal. They very motivate me to keep acting.
Thank you very very much!!!
At the same time I care of "No".
I am not a MNO, but I so much interested in Dash rate to be growing and Dash spreading troughout the world. I love everything in Dash. People, business, marketing, atmosphere. I want Russians to be involved in it over their heads.
But how can I get what to improve?
I start guessing:
1. Maybe Dash Community don't believe in sport environment and I am on a wrong path with my concept.
Or there might be another reason.
2. We are just new members. Actually, we've got so far a little audience on our channel that leads to your distrust. In this case, I absolutely understand you. And we 're working on it.
Please, tell me what information I should provide you to make me more understandable for you.
3. Maybe my English. I'm sorry for that. This is not my native language. Perhaps, somewhere there are "cuts hearing" words that can distort the meaning.
Please, write me. I would like to explain.

Dear MNOs, you will help me a lot with your comments so that I can improve our Russian Dash activity.
I am convinced that ideological influence on people is one the first task for Dash. As I have found out from disscusions on other Proposals (for instance, interesting Venezuela projects) Dash Community realy cares of creating its own environment. With my idea I would like to participate in it too.
That is why after having analyzed I concluded that we can promote Dash through athletes and sport since they well influence people. Many of us are engaged in sport activity because this is the health, the life and a positive mood and mind .
I'll be waiting for your feedback to do our best for Dash.
P.S. Maybe you don't like just the speaker style on video while I am thinking of globaly ))

You probably don't want to use the word propaganda.

Thank you for your importnat comment! Of course, we don't mean this word in a negative sense. Never! Сonversely, I definitly mean effective and positive promotion. I apologize if this word has caused unpleasant emotions. (In our language, this word has several meanings. And as a special case means self-serving intentions matter).

Thank you for your proposal submission. Could you elaborate more specifically on your costs and how your budget will be allocated? I feel that this is a fairly reasonable budget, but I also noticed in step (3) that you intend to award champions with Dash prizes, for example, so seeing how and where you will be spending your proposal funding would be helpful in determining how to vote.

Arthyron thank you for your question.
Concerning step 3 (Dash Race Championship with 2Dash Awarding /performance - 11,7 Dash), we are going to organize it this way:
1. Сompetition venue- Vyborg (Saint-Petersburg region). This is a historical city. It is experienced in performing sport events very well. Links are below.
There is one more significant reason of this choice:
-we have friendly relations with the mayor of the city. Therefore, getting permission to held the Race is easy and not so costly.
We need: to arrange with traffic; to close streets on the route for almost the whole day; to provide security. This is easier to do with loyal support of the city authorities.
2. Breakdown of costs.
1) Dash Prize - Dash Wallet with 2Dash for a winner;
2) Authorities' permission - 2,83 Dash;
3) Road signs and the Route signs, pylons, banners - 0,26 Dash;
4) Locker rooms for athletes and a warm-up area - 0,62 Dash (it's going to be up to 100 participants);
5) Food for athlets -0,83;
6) Start-Finish/Awarding place equiped - 1.83 Dash;
7) Host of the event, commentator - 1 Dash;
8) Dash souvenir production (standard stuff: key chains, magnets) - 1,67 Dash;
9) Mass Media invitation - 0,66 Dash;
10) Volunteers - free;
11) SMM and PR will be associated with Vyborg merchants who want to advertise their products and service at the event.
Additionaly, the Cycling team "Favorite" will provide huge SMM support over their SMM channels.
12) Wellcome treats for the guests and fans are going be also provided by merchants.

I've met with this team in person and they sound quite promising to me...

They are still just going to find the most effective ways of operation (I'm not sure that their approaches are effective right now - so please decide yourself) - but I hope that their previous business experience will afford them to eliminate the number of unavoidable ineffective actions at start.
I plan to help this team also to achieve efficiency and sufficiency.

In general, it's a pleasure to see a growing and productive "competition" between several teams in "Russian" crypto(Dash)space - all of them have unique competences and different approaches - so I expect a kind of evolution from these teams in nearest future, including cooperations, mergers, ... IMO it's a right way of growing for local Dash movements - let's give them (in case of asked price will be reasonable...) a chance to prove the ability to be effective (or not)...
