Wait so your just copying and pasting a video that was previously made? Then this should require 100% trust that you specifically can actually commit the success of the project. Given your "new member" status, I feel like you have no trust within the community and also still are unknown who you are.

It's very vague who you actually are and who your group consist of. Please inform us with details of the events your team has been involved with and the size of the events and how each person can play a role in this operation, why would you need computer professionals to work on this project? With 40+ years experience so you say, I'd hope you can bring references to the table that we can cross check.

Start smaller to build up trust. 25k to a random stranger is a lot of trust to be given.

Yes, we are using previously produced materials to save the Dash treasury hundreds of thousands of Dollars in production fees.

As far as who we are? I am the IT professional mentioned in the previous posts. I have been a part of the community since Darkcoin and was a member of the Darkcoin Foundation. I introduced all my team members to Darkcoin/Dash. Also, I have worked with Fernando Gutierrez on setting up servers and test applications for Dash back in 2015, one of them being Mattermost. If Fernando comes across this post I'm sure he will vouch for me.

As far as our roles go, I have been the technical lead but we are all contributing ideas and spreading the workload across each member of our team. Our team leaders are well known and respected in their communities. They may be new to the forum, like you, but they have owned Dash and have been wanting to promote it for some time.

As you can see we have not included the cost of our team’s time in this proposal because we would all love to see Dash become mainstream. - Since we are already stake holders we will all benefit from the increased adoption.

This proposal is a small test run for the community compared to what we would like to propose. Future proposals like this one will include more airlines and will cost more. This is the bare minimum to get an ad into these major airlines. Certified proof of the completion of this project will be provided from the airlines and will be posted to the Dash forum. Jim and Kerry are currently working on another proposal to promote large concerts and well-known comedians. Marketing and event promotion was their profession prior to their retirement. They have contacts with talent agencies and large venues and production companies that I believe would benefit the Dash community in the future.

We have some really big plans for Dash.

I don't understand how this engages users, it's just advertising that goes in one ear and out the other.

I like that idea and I am now researching a production company that can meet our needs for future advertisements. Dashmaximalist is also interested in having more professional quality Ads made for future projects so my group will take some time to work on this issue.
Hey mate, I may have a solution for you regarding a high end video. I'll pm you.

As with most advertising it is difficult to gauge how effective a campaign will be but we are confident that the target audience is highly educated and have the resources to be able to purchase Dash. Please see the "Why is airline advertising effective?" portion of the proposal for why we believe this will be effective compared to other traditional advertising methods. Airline passengers will have this Ad in their face, so to speak, with nowhere else to go but the Lavatory.

I hope this addresses your concerns.

I think you should allow users to engage right then and there. Tell them to pull out their phone and download the wallet now and what sources to go to to find out how to buy some

Perhaps we can charge dash for going to the lavatory? Dash for a Splash?

Please fix your proposal on DashCentral https://www.dashcentral.org/p/AirlineIn-flightmediacampaign
and check it time to time in case if anyone will ask you questions there.
Thank you!
Nothing needs "fixing" about this proposal. It's been successfully entered onto the blockchain with all pieces of information successfully entered, including external info URL, https://www.dashtreasury.org/p-2969.prop .

DashCentral is correctly displaying that external URL, along with other pieces of data logged on the Dash blockchain. If users on DashCentral are inconvenienced by clicking on the external info URL, @rango could scrape the external info URL so the proposal showed up automatically on his site. He probably hasn't done this, since users click on internet links all day to get to information, and it's not actually a true defect. This is how the proposal system was designed, perhaps in anticipation that various decentralized proposal sites would pop up.

I agree that monitoring all discussion forums is a positive thing that a proposal owner can do.

UPDATE: July’s in-flight media campaign

Hey everyone,
We want to say thank you for your support for last month’s in-flight media campaign proposal.
That campaign is finalized and is set to air in October on American Airlines, and October through November on Virgin America Airlines. We will post “Proof of Run” docs from the airlines once our campaign airs. We have also had that same video dubbed & translated into Spanish and Japanese, for general use in the Dash community. Please find the links above, in the comments.

This month we have submitted a proposal to extend the air time of our video across American Airlines (+3 months) and Virgin America Airlines (+6 months), as well as include United Airlines in the campaign (3 Months). Adding United Airlines will potentially reach an additional 6,300,000 people during its run.

We will continue to post updates as we receive them. Thanks again for your continued support!

I want to see the ad content.

If the ad is good, ballsy, but not too garish; I'd vote for "indefinitely."

TOMA advertising is not about immediate results.

Hi Camo, how are doing? I'd like to message you about something but your settings are such that I can't start a conversation with you.

Could you start a conversation with me please?

Hey @camosoul you can find the link to the video we're running for our In-Flight Media Campaign in our proposal, or right here.

We're glad to see it getting some press! If you're curious about the full Campaign Schedule, you can find it on this forum post.

Just want to throw an idea here. First tv advertisement on financial channel (cnbc, bloomberg, fox buisness). Theres only one chance to be the first one to do it. Big impact in the cryptosphere and breach in the informed general public...

Not on financial channels... That just makes it ponzi.

Sell it to the people. Let the demand feed the infrastructure organically.

Why is that making a ponzi? I dont fear that a viewer who research dash after viewing a ad come to the conclusion that its a ponzi.

What i like about this budget proposal / ad is that according to below article, it could also have the possibility of getting viewed in households nationwide :


Dash Running TV Commercials? First Televised Cryptocurrency Ad

https://coinreviews.io/dash-cryptocurrency-tv-commercial/

It appears United Airlines uses DirecTV as their television provider. With DirecTV being a major television provider, this could mean that Dash is not only running
in-flight commercials but could also be open to running commercials viewed in households nationwide. This is a huge step for mainstreaming cryptocurrency and
bringing awareness to the industry.
