My name is Abass Iddriss known in the Smartcash community as @abasz, @abasz on twitter and miles_drizzy on instagram. This project is the continuation of our successfully completed project. We therefore tend to increase the adoption of Smartcash in Ghana through grassroots community outreach efforts and to establish marketing methods. Training of 30 newly Smartcash ambassadors in three regions of Ghana to propagate Smartcash. One-on-one meet up with business owners and the ordinary people on the need to sign up and accept Smartcash for their daily transactions.
For years Ghana and most African countries has been pummeled with high unemployment. Lack of steady positions and corrupt business officials make it hard for entrepreneurs to make their mark on the continent, and Cryptocurrency has given many business owners and workers opportunity they likely wouldn’t have had otherwise.
Cryptocurrency fever is now striking Africa hard. Ghana is one of the few countries in Africa where Cryptocurrency is picking up remarkably and yet, most people still hold a hostile attitude towards these digital currencies which still hinders the adoption rate in the country.
Based on our just completed proposal, it came to our notice that even though the knowledge of Cryptocurrency is rising, many people still don’t know of Smartcash.
This project shall cover the 3 major industrialized and business areas of Ghana (Takoradi, Tema and Koforidua) for the next three months. Our earliest project https://vote.smartcash.cc/Proposal/Details/INTRODUCING-SMARTCASH-TO-THE-ASHANTI-COMMUNITY1 is completed with all milestones and measure of success met with an increase awareness of Smartcash within the region. There is therefore the need to create more awareness on Smartcash and why Ghanaians should adopt and trade using Smartcash.
Several lessons and observations have been made for our first project and there is the need to factor in new development such as training Smartcash ambassadors, contracting bloggers to write on Smartcash and Smartcash radio advertisements.
Contracting bloggers to write on Smartcash
Blogging can be seen as a form of social networking service. Bloggers do not only produce content to post on their blogs but also build social relations with their readers and other bloggers. This however create a great opportunity to advertise ones goods. We shall contract major bloggers to write and share Smartcash contents periodically. This will reach about 15000 Ghanaians and it will increase the adoption of Smartcash in Ghana.
Outreach is a major advantage with radio ads. Despite criticism for high costs. Advertisers have the best chance to reach large audience through television and radio. Radio advertisement can reach even the illiterates people in the country.
Smartcash radio and advertisement in the nations most watched and listened stations to help educate Ghanaians on Smartcash Cryptocurrency.
For massive adoption and usability, there should be massive Smartcash advocacy in developing countries like Ghana. The country is not new to Cryptocurrency but most people are not aware of the impact of Smartcash. To be able to achieve this, ambassadors will be provided with training, funding and materials to perform their own meet-ups, thus exponentially increasing our influence. The project intend to train 30 Smartcash enthusiast to spread and educate the mass on Smartcash digital cash and to clear any misconceptions Ghanaians have on Smartcash Cryptocurrency.
