I am forwarding a translated version of @robkot proposal:
Hello BTCZ friends,
Let me introduce myself. I deal with online advertising for the last 3 years and I own a company specializing in promotion of Client services and products, mainly via Google and Facebook. You may know me for the lottery system that I established at bitpaylink where you can bet BTCZ on the last 4 hash numbers of every 1000th BTCZ block (https://bitpaylink.com/). You can also directly buy BTCZ through it using FIAT.
To increase BTCZ awareness, one of the most important factors we are missing is good advertisement. Not just usual ad but a powerful one that will attract people willing to invest in BTCZ. We need this to reverse BTCZ price trend and increase trade volume. Every newly involved person will have an impact on BTCZ. We have to act now to change current BTCZ perception of a dying coin, as I think that if we hit 0.1 sat there might a point of no return.
What I believe is needed to achieve that goal is investing in Google Ad so that BTCZ website https://getbtcz.com/ would appear in the Google searches. I am happy to set this up voluntarily and free of charge, however we would need to raise funds for the advertising that Google will charge us for. There are two options for billing with Google.
First option: I would set up a new account in Google Ads in the name of someone who will be willing to use their credit/debit card for Google payments – this person can also record invoices if they want to include the costs in their business. I will only manage the account. Here we would need a volunteer.
Second option: I have one free account in Google Ads, still operating according to the old rules, where the payment card is not required. I could top it up as a prepaid account by bank transfer. In this case, you do not need anybody’s payment card, but you will probably not be able to change personal information and I would remain the owner of the account. Only the owner of the account can add the funds, therefore it will not be possible to raise invoice to someone else than me. Here we could use VaultZ funds.
I would present the community with regular reports on the effects and costs of the ad campaign, so that everything would be transparent. The data would also be visible in Google Analytics and on the website itself. I believe that with a relatively low cost, we will be able to acquire attention of many unique users from all over the world. To start off we would need around $200 a month. Payment for advertising could be made in BTCZ at the current buy rate on the crex24 exchange. I buy BTCZ for BitPayLink all the time, so there will be no additional supply on the exchanges dumping the price. We could raise these funds either through voluntary donations or use VaultZ.
Regarding the BTCZ website - I also think that there is a need to create one additional subpage on getbtcz.com - a button in the middle of the page, a bar saying “Invest in BitcoinZ”. As much as people like to view a nice website, they also like a real human contact and they want to have an option of contacting someone. This is why there should be a contact form on the subpage for people to ask question about different investing options, further explaining how the cryptocurrencies work and why BitcoinZ is a good investment for the future, which wallet to choose from and more.
Google tags will have to be added on the website, I can give them to the site administrator once the ads are set up. We would focus on inquiries interested in investing in BTCZ, this is what we need.
I invite you to start commenting on the subject as well as to take part in the poll to probe Community’s take on this very vital matter.
What do you think should be done? (Poll remains active for 1 month)
- I would like to volunteer to contribute to a 200 USD per month for BTCZ Google Ads
- Let’s arrange required 200 USD per month through VaultZ
- I hate the idea, BTCZ does not need ads campaign
