We hope to make this a two-month proposal, with specific milestones before the fist payout (July) and the full ad before the second payout (August). YouTube costs will be included in the proposal. We target people on YouTube who search for "Bitcoin" and "How to... Bitcoin." - it works quite well in our current campaign.
Please include a large pure ad spend with this, with some way that we can see that the separate part of the spend is going directly to the publishers. Dash.org should be tracking clicks and their funnel metrics, but I doubt they are.

The Dash treasury board has a nasty habit of funding lots of videos/content but neglecting to fund legitimate advertising sources towards them. Also possible that a separate "ad booster" proposal could go along with this in varying amounts.

If you want any help with promoting the pre-proposal : https://www.dashtreasury.org/contact.html I'm available by phone anytime, as well.

I'll let abob54 at DashTreasury know to lend you any support they can towards this. If you want to cooperate, we can also subsidize proposal fees.
Thanks! We will definitely look into it.

As far as Dash.org is concerned: Unfortunately Dash.org does not contain our YouTube marketing keywords (mostly phrases containing "Bitcoin") so the YouTube algorithm does not allow us to make it our landing page. We are setting up a proxy ( dash-digitalcash.com ) as landing page that has the word "bitcoin" plastered all over it. Hopefully the YouTube bot will allow us to link to it, our cost per view should be cheaper then. We should know in a day or so.

We will publish our first weekly report on the current campaign coming Friday.
I see, that makes sense, in that case I like the first one.

It could be an idea to combine the message and for example use a Bitcoin symbol in one of the traffic light, a dollar in the next and a euro in the third or something, but I guess that could obfuscate the message.

Glad you like it. As production progresses we'll keep our eyes open for ways to focus our message. Thanks for the feedback :D
Proposal Evaluation Committee

Hi Pieter

You've heard this all before, but I have to say it again ;)

As you know Dash is growing every day.
To deal with the increased number of proposal, a Proposal Evaluation Committee (PEC) has been created. This work is being done by volunteers (mostly Master Node Owners themselves).

We assume you are planning to submit your proposal officially, i.e. Pay the 5 Dash to submit you Proposal?
If so, do you want the PEC (Proposal Evaluation Committee) to assist you in preparing your Pre-Proposal?

The Dash Network actually have had a Dash Project Proposal Template for a number of years and we try to get the pre-proposal owner to read and stick to it, as it includes every useful information for a MNO (Masternode Owner) to take an informed decision before voting on whether to pass your proposal or not.
If you have not done this yet, please read: How to submit a Dash Pre-Proposal https://goo.gl/7jmwXQ

As you adjust your Pre-Proposal to our feedback, the evaluation is adjusted and this may be done a number of times (up to 5 or more).
Each time the chance of your Proposal being accepted by the MNO’s will increase.
If you want to know who will be doing the Evaluations – see here: Official PEC Pre-P https://goo.gl/qrbeXK

The evaluations also have another function:
To give the MNO’s and community a Prioritized List of Evaluated Proposals. This list will save the MNO’s and everyone else time and increase the chance of your proposal gaining votes. It will also prevent your proposal from getting lost amongst the horde or prevent it from not being read, because it’s too long or non-conforming.

Whether you accept our help or not: we will be doing Reports on all Pre-Proposals near the end of the cycle to prepare the Prioritized List of Evaluated Proposals.

If you do want to use our services (note this is a free service)
1. Please Private Message @Biltong on the Dash Pre + Budget Proposal Discussions Forum indicating that you want the help of the PEC, so we can assign a team to you.
2. Once you have read How to submit a Dash Pre-Proposal https://goo.gl/7jmwXQ you might want to adjust your Pre-Proposal before we submit our 1st Evaluation, so we’ll wait for you to give us the go-ahead before we start the evaluation process.
3. Again, PM @Biltong when you are ready for the 1st Evaluation.
4. Please note that we do not have that much time to give you feedback via the Evaluations. The final report has to be in 3 days before end of cycle and you have to have your last adjustments in 5 days before end of cycle : i.e.: Last Adjustments: 28 June.
5. We hope to receive at least 4 updates from you (if necessary) and provide you with the same number of Evaluation/Report feedbacks, but it does mean you and us will have to start asap.
6. To adjust your Pre-Proposal for the 1st evaluation will be a time consuming (+- 3 hours of work), but believe me it will be well worth your time if you are serious about getting your Proposal passed.

If you don’t want the PEC to help with your Proposal – please PM @Biltong as well, then I won’t bug you again for an answer :wink:

Good luck with your Proposal!
