    Great, thorough, update. Sounds like a lot of progress is being made. Thank you.

    Google Ads - Facebook Ads - Reddit Ads Update Thread

    If affiliate links are available - use them, definitely. Cycle the money back into the budget; effectively a small rebate for ad costs. There's no reason to sacrifice competitive advantage.

    Google Ads - Facebook Ads - Reddit Ads Update Thread

    I'd like to re-iterate what an opportunity it is to have @feedbands at Dash, willing to execute on such a professional campaign. He has done this nearly for free, and it's an excellent start to what could be a game-changing advertising strategy for Dash. He's used a perfectly good...

    Google Ads - Facebook Ads - Reddit Ads Update Thread

    You have unlocked (professionally and in an organized, responsible manner) Dash's path back to the top 3. Get more budget, fast. This deserves it. There's $8.5M/mo now and Ripple and all the other crap coins are not holding back on their spends. Forget the temporary prices - those top...

    Google Ads - Facebook Ads - Reddit Ads Update Thread

    Go @feedbands. You are the 2018 MVP in the making. And a good lesson to all - rules CHANGE on a dime. If crypto advertising is available NOW, buy it NOW. Waiting to advertise until Evolution or for any other reason is naive.

    Google Ads - Facebook Ads - Reddit Ads Update Thread

    This is how it's done. Congratulations and thank you, @feedbands . Looking forward to seeing a much bigger budget on this. This is the type of proposal that will keep Dash in the top 3-5. And if Dash isn't up there, it's going to get left behind and lost in all the noise. Dash's fiat price...

    Pre-proposal: Press saying Strike Social (Inc. 500 No. 17) accepting Dash for digital advertising

    Thank you for that explanation, Patrick. I am very excited that a big firm like Strike is starting to take Dash seriously and see how it can help. I really hope you decide to go through with the integration to accept Dash.

    Dash Doesn't Need to Reinvent the Wheel with Advertising - Online Search Beats it All

    Hi @TroyDASH - I would probably trust Edward and Laura with this campaign, especially if they were willing to open a campaign audit up to a different expert, such as someone on my team or @feedbands. At the $150k/mo purchase level, Edward would have access to a special Google rep who would...

    Pre-proposal: Press saying Strike Social (Inc. 500 No. 17) accepting Dash for digital advertising

    Wow. Is there a region where you guys have seen client interest, but have been blocked by banks and unable to service them? Seems like this type of client could immediately purchase in Dash.

    Pre-proposal: Press saying Strike Social (Inc. 500 No. 17) accepting Dash for digital advertising

    Yes, absolutely. Strike Social is a major video advertising buyer. This would be one of Dash's largest integrations. In a business like media buying, shaving off 3-4% in international transaction fees could be a tremendous incentive for any potential advertiser. I'm voting yes on this, but...

    Feedbands - I will reply in a private conversation. This proposal still needs an owner.

    Yes, this is being worked on daily now, and good progress is being made by a full team. Expect a pre-proposal shortly - I will not be proposal owner, but will be offering expertise and consultation for the optimization of the Adwords campaign itself. Right now, the shared Adwords account...

    Mystic Dash Challenge + PVC Sponsorship

    Great promo, and thanks for fronting all the Dash. I will absolutely vote for reimbursement, and encourage others to do the same. I only have one question - can you do this same type of thing a hundred times over with similar sized, tight-knit, YouTube channels?

    Eralith YouTube ad campaign report thread.

    Glad those views are pouring in. If it's a $0.10 bid regardless of country, India is producing so many views because other bidders are using more granular bidding, and bidding less for India specifically. While India may be averaging $0.04CPV on your campaign, I'd assert that you could...

    Eralith YouTube ad campaign report thread.

    Very cool jetplane video! Definitely a unique, creative style. Well done. In terms of your conclusion regarding the Indian audience - I believe it is a false conclusion. The campaign is getting the most traffic from India because India is huge and clicks are far cheaper than in developing...

    Pre-proposal: DASH PrivateSend De-Anonymization Contest

    I like this proposal. Combination PR move/bug bounty on an issue Dash can't lose on, all the while pointing out how flush the Dash treasury is. What better than to end XMR style propaganda than putting our money where our mouth is. As long as you get some very high profile judges with the...

    That is pretty much correct about privacy. Users who don't want Google to track them can opt out using ad-blockers and browser privacy settings. They won't use gmail or other Google services and our Adwords campaign likely will not target them. So there is "choice". Additionally, Dash will...

    YouTube Series About Dash in Portuguese for the Brazilian Market

    I'm glad to hear that, Rod. Direct paid investment pointing to your YouTube channel and videos will definitely grow your group more quickly. Giving away swag to your views is a good idea.

    YouTube Series About Dash in Portuguese for the Brazilian Market

    'Tis a bit pricey, Rod. Would you consider throwing $5-7k of this amount each month towards paid ads to beef up your groups faster? Organic is working, but for this amount of cash, some speed would be nice. In your market, $5-7k would go a very long way to pumping up your audience. Your...

    Search can be sent to lots of pages and promotions, including the great ones that DFN runs. Digital search expense is the firepower that can drive the type of creative and fun promotions you seem to enjoy most. After these search campaigns ran for a few months, the budget would be so big, that...

    Jim, I like Eralith as a content producer and I'm happy he's chosen to focus his talent towards Dash projects. I like that he is producing the jet plane video, and I liked his storyboards for other videos. In an ideal world, I would love to separate his content out and have someone else...

    I agree with this, thanks Mark. A critical part to the execution of this plan will be directing users to good landing pages. Mark's ideas are good, and I believe that they can be implemented incrementally. A simple, one page landing page with Dash's benefits and how to engage with it, could...

    Yes, I remember that site. It sadly got voted down. I believe there were CC processing concerns over it. (perhaps justified, but the proposal owner was willing to take on the risk himself..) Now is probably the time to invite anyone and everyone to create Dash landing pages (be sure to use...

    I think this pay per download is on the right track. It's a combination of #firstdashwallet, but without overpaying. It also requires an action from them, and has built-in referral virality. Instead of simply paying them to download the wallet, what we're really doing is giving them a few...

    If nobody with more "trust" is interested in being proposal owner on this mainstay, we could certainly start smaller and launch our own proposal. I am willing to act as consultant and architect of the campaign, taking an admin role on the account, and training you on how to keep it improving...

    I appreciate the offer to help share the proposal costs. I, too, would contribute to that part if it helped. The main thing we need is a very trusted Dash member to be proposal owner. They'd then exchange the Dash for fiat, and deposit into a Google adwords account. (Overtime, we'd expand to...

    Very good question. In a mature, ideal scenario, we'd bid on a wide range of keyword types and send them to various landing pages based on their country of origin and search term. As you suggested, we could attempt to gather their email and keep them informed based with constant contact, or...

    Please note that DashTreasury.org, which was launched under my direction and funding, has subsidized over a dozen independent proposals. I am very much in favor of all good proposals, and have dedicated substantial personal resources towards that end. I seek progress.

    I just want Dash to win and continuously increasing Google/Bing search ads is how to do it. It's such an incredibly special game-changing advantage we could use. Having the best product doesn't hurt, but that alone won't be good enough to beat the terrible entrenched regimes this world is...

    Dash Doesn't Need to Reinvent the Wheel with Advertising - Online Search Beats it All

    Using the same logic, you could say that Dash shouldn't integrate with any exchanges because they use the fiat banking system (which assists in tracking, profiling, worse etc.)* *which would be a very silly argument.

    There are many small businesses that dabble in Adwords/search, and they may in fact lose money due to poor settings/bids/placements. The large companies that spend 90% of their marketing budgets on digital search are indeed producing great ROIs. For actual data on this, you can find forms...

    Dash Doesn't Need to Reinvent the Wheel with Advertising - Online Search Beats it All

    Unlike other forms of advertising like TV, Print, and Radio - Google and Bing's pay per click format means that the advertiser only pays for the visitor that the advertising does attract. No clicky, no chargey. (Although showcasing an ad with a higher click-through-rate does lead to lower...

    My nomination so far is @Mark Mason or @mastermined at DashForceNews. Those guys are dedicated, and well positioned to act as "escrow" on the adwords account. I imagine they have their hands full with the genuinely great stuff they're doing, but if they didn't mind setting up a pool of fiat...
