Proposal description

This is a cross-post from the Dash Forum

This proposal seeks funding to provide for ongoing public relations services through our current PR firm, Wachsman PR. Our current contract concluded the first week of December. Although we received funding on December 4th, we decided to take a short break with
Wachsman PR due to the holidays and our next contract will begin on December 28th, in time to prepare for events scheduled for the first week of January. Therefore, this January budget request will apply toward services starting January 28th.

In our assessment, Wachsman PR's strategy and efforts have provided the project with substantial value, and achieved many firsts. These include our first mainstream article publications, our first top-tier payments industry publications, and our first print-media publication.

The final report covering their efforts through the previous contract can be found at the following link. You can see previous reports in the same thread. We have also identified the media placements which were "organic" vs. those that were driven by the efforts of Wachsman PR directly.

Full report:

The monthly rate will remain the same, at $6,000 per month. This is the same rate as our previous PR firms, but we feel is a better value given the results.

If you have additional questions, feel free to ask them below. Please include @kot, @babygiraffe, or @Minotaur along with your question to ensure it is seen by the team.

Requested funding is as follows for the January 4th budget cycle:
Total: 589.85 Dash

Note: Any unused budget will be applied toward future public relations expenses
