Description

Building a community of dedicated people

SmartCash promotion on social media
Do a lot of SmartCash promotion on social media/short movies/trailers for events/building facebook/linkedin groups. Smartport wants to appoint one person who will do this on a part-time basis.
$ 4.000 per month/ $ 48.000,00 in Year 1

Community building events
Organise 4 community building-events to learn people about SmartCash, make them enthousiast and get them active as SmartCash ambassadors. Everyone who joins the Ambassador Network gets rewarded in Smart.
$ 10.000,00 per event/$ 40.000,00 in Year 1

Building a community of smartcash merchants
Every ambassodor on his turn should promote SmartCash amongs (web) shopholders, restaurants, bars etc to accept SmartCash as a mean of payment.

Smartport needs a budget per merchant. Smartmerchants get listed on Smartport.cc, get support on organising the payments in Smart and will be invited to the ambassador community. The individual ambassador has to be rewarded for his or her efforts. The needed budget depends on the size of the merchant. The size of the merchant is measured on the number of cashdecks. Webshops are rated by the number of yearly visitors.
Needed budget: $ 2.000,00 per Cashdeck. Webshop, $ 1,00 per yearly visitor.

Facilitation of SmartCashTrade
On Smartport.cc will be a possibility to buy and sell Smart, peer to peer. In the beginning it can be very simple. Through the year there will be a continuous development of the site. It is neccessary for the growth of SmartCash, that people can buy Smart directly, without first buying BTC.

Writing articles about cryptos in general and on SmartCash specific
Write several articles about cryptocurrencies in general and Smart Cash specific. In every generic article the word SmartCash will be used at least one time. In the specific articles aspect of SmarCash, like Smart Rewards, Smart Governance etcetera will be described more specific.
Some examples for articles
• How to open a cryptocurrency wallet;
• Who owns your crypotocoins?;
• Hashing, the blockchain secret;
• How does blockchain work?;
• What is an ICO?;
• What currency to buy;
• How big are cryptocurrencies;
• Mining the new banking;
• Everyone a banker;
• Crypto safety;

• What is SmartCash?
• The smart hyve.
• Renew your Wallet
• Smart Rewards
• Smart Governance
• Smart Budgets

Needed budget: $ 20.000,00

Perform as a speaker on several events (goal 20-100 per year)
Needed Budget: $ 2.000,00 per occasion

Education of the community members so they can perform as a speaker themselves
Organising 4 training days to educate other SmartCash ambassadors. These days will cost a lot of preparation/promotion/hiring a site etc. Needed budget $ 6.000,00 per training day.

Build a site on Smartport.cc
SmartPort.cc will play an important role in the promotion of SmartCash in the Netherlands. First it will be a portal where the merchants get listed an where SmartCash can be bought. Through the year and the years to follow, the site will get more and more sophisticated. Merchants can build a webshop on the site, SmartCash can be bought and sold, maybe we can even list other currencies on the site.
The development of the site should be an ongoing process. Needed budget in Year 1: $ 80.000,00.

    Your budget looks extremely high and bloated... There seem to be way too much going on here to begin with, and the first thing that should be done is to split it up in several individual proposals. There should be more detailed budgeting per item, and also you should have milestones. Finally, the budget needs to be either drastically reduced, or you really need to convince people that it is justified. For example, you are asking for $20,000 to write articles. Having an online business and a blog myself, I know that a good writer can be hired for around 3-5 cents per word. For your budget to make any sense, you would need to produce anywhere between 400,000 to 667,000 words of content. That comes down to 400 to 667 1000 word articles... I am extremely skeptical that you can produce that much content and ideas for articles that would be relevant enough. If you are planning to produce something like 50 or a 100 articles (which would still be A LOT), this particular task is severely overpriced. I don't see any way that this proposal will be approved as is. Start with small actionable items, and proposal(s) that are no more than a few months long. You need to earn the trust of the community first, especially when we are talking about such astronomical sums of money.

    I won't hesistate to hire you!

    I don't know where to start with this inflated budget. So I won't. If you think that you are about to get rich exploiting naive community, you are wrong. Start by earning some trust with small, simple and easy to show results projects with detailed FAIR budgets and milestones.

    agree 100%.

    Please see my comment below. Can I send you a personal message?

  • Frans Aarts 03/15/2018 10:28

    If you organise your activities professionally, that is, hiring people, paying taxes, make use of sub-contractors, paying all your costs in Euro after exchanging the Smart into BTC and the BTC into Euro, then the outcome is much less profitable than it seems. Please make that calculation and post your comment again.
