ROI / BENEFITS OF THIS PROPOSAL FOR DASH:

1- Help Dash achieves its #1 goal: Our support center will convert people who don't know how to use Dash in a day to day basis, into real time users.
2- Understand user needs and solve users problems, as the #1 Dash Strategy for Growth.
3- We will be able to gain understanding of the issues and problems that customers have, and be able to collect that information to send it to the Dash Core Team (Ryan Taylor, Fernando Gutierrez, Bradley Zastrow), so we all can meet Dash #1 goal.
4- Understand who the customer is, so we can tailor the marketing strategies towards those people.
5- This project will satisfy customers needs, as we have validated that 91% of people have doubts about Dash and 96% want a support center to get answers and solve their problems.
6- Support other established Dash funded projects sush as: Dash Caracas team lead by Eugenia Alcala (algodonfranelas) who has run 5 sucessful conferences in Venezuela. We provided the user tech support for the last one. You can see pics here: DHV with Eugenia Alcala, DHV at Dash Caracas Conference 1, DHV at Dash Caracas Conference 2.
7- We will help to convert small and big bussineses into real Dash merchants.
8- Its not just a call center. It's a help center and all the time will be used effectively to help and support both people and other Dash teams to achieve their goals.
9- We are commited to provide updates and reports on a monthly basis at: Dash forum thread, Discord and www.dashhelpme.org. Also we will send detailed information to the Dash Core Team.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PRE - PROPOSAL UPDATES:
1- We want to publicly announce that @AnCapitol has sponsored the 5 Dash proposal fee, scroll down to see a signed message from him. We appreciate it a lot and Dash community will be proud of our work.
2
- We changed our project timeline from: Feb - May to Mar - Jun (1 month later). This is because at first we wanted to submit the proposal on January round, but then we decided to wait 1 month receiving feedback from the community. So, we are going to submit the proposal on Feb. 1st and if it passes, we will start working on March.

PROPOSAL UPDATES:
Following the feedback and advice we have received from the MNO´s and the community, these are the updates we have made to improve our proposal. (Special thanks to DeepBlue)
1- (Feb, 2nd. 2018)- We changed the format of the table on the Social Media section in order to make it easier to read.
2- (Feb, 6th. 2018)- We added a table with our "Detailed Costs Breakdown" (go to Budget section), there it can be noticed that our operational costs are actually very low.
3- (Feb, 7th. 2018)- We added some screenshots on the Allies section which show evidence of the support (and proof of alliance) from many people in the Dash community.
4- (Feb, 7th. 2018)- We put the link of the results from the survey we made and which validates the problem we are solving. (Link is right under the Proposal video link).
5- (Working on it)- We are setting up a remit assistance guidance called "Send Money Home", which will help Venezuelans living overseas easily sends remittance to their family through Dash. Remittances in Latam is a $70 billion market.


Hello everyone, we submitted our Proposal on DashCentral. You can check it here: https://www.dashcentral.org/p/Dash-Help-Support-Center. We hope for your support and comments!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello DASH Community! We are the team of DASH Help - Venezuela (DHV), and we’re super excited to present to you our Pre-Proposal for the very first DASH Support Center.
A fully featured platform designed to help people use DASH in Venezuela and stick with it.

You can see our full Pre-Proposal document here: https://goo.gl/SeFZzY

Check our Proposal video here:



THE PROBLEM


We believe that in order to achieve massive adoption of DASH, there are three main fronts that need to be fully integrated within the community: Promotion, Supply, and Support.

In Venezuela, there are great initiatives in the former two, like different marketing strategies and exchange platforms. But we’ve seen that the latter is lacking heavily. There is a technical barrier for the average user, a learning curve that is not easy to climb on your own. People get excited about DASH and want to use it, but they have lots of questions and there is no go-to place to get answers fast. Letting people know about DASH and also making DASH available for purchase are of course, very important, but it’s just not enough. People want guidance, and the peace of mind that whatever issues they encounter, they have a reliable and easy to access platform to help them solve their issues quickly!

We´ve validated the problem by carrying out surveys to +100 people who went to a conference organized by our friends of "DASH Caracas", where we asked some basic questions about their general knowledge of DASH. Results are just amazing. Check them out here: http://goo.gl/q4aJfB


THE SOLUTION

DASH Help - Venezuela will be a fully featured support center, where people can get TOTAL and INSTANT (like DASH) assistance, either by phone calls, email, live chat and social media platforms.

We truly believe Venezuela can become the first DASH Nation. And be an example to the world that people can overcome economic disasters like the one we live in here. So we look for your support to make this happen, and step by step change our country and the world for better.

And this is just the beginning.

Hello, everyone.

Even before I met this guys, I had heard about their other succesful enterprises, specially TuGruero, wich I was a fan of. I really wanted this team to belong to our group of entrepreneurs. So I was delighted when they participated in December's conference and DASH City.



Then they invited me to know their office and to advice them in the construction of their new pre-proposal.

Working with them is been a delight, in their young age, they are highly professional and efficient. Also, they have a clear understanding of blockchain, cryptocurrencies and DASH.

About the problem and solution they expose in their proposal, I could not agree more. I am sure this project will be a perfect complement to DASH Caracas' work, because our participants leave our events with a lot of enthusiasm but much more doubts, and we have been overwhelmed with the quantity of questions. You can see some of them in Twitter, with the hashtag #dashccs.

I hope the community likes the proposal and the MNOs vote yes.

Great proposal. What are you going to do once the 3 months are up?
Hello Charlie, thanks for your support! I am Lorenzo Rey from the DASH Help Venezuela team.

We have big plans to continue on and expand the project further after the initial three months, for example once DASH can be easily purchased and sold with Venezuelan Bolivares (VEF)(which will hopefully be very soon thanks to other great proposals) we have plans to support companies and businesses on how to pay part of their employees salaries and bonuses using DASH, we also have plans to expand to other spanish speaking countries, and many more things!

But we gotta start small and build up, the three month period is set so we can prove this is a necessity, and then we can submit a bigger and broader proposal built on the success of the first one, and based on real results, we believe this is the right course of action and we're super excited about what this year will bring for DASH!

So you do have a plan to become a self-sustaining enterprise down the road if there's a market. Would you care to say a few words about that? Thanks.

Very good question! And the key here is if there's a market, which we believe there will be down the road. Right now the focus is adoption and this proposal is an investment on the future. Once the use of DASH in commerce, payments and other microtransactions becomes more mainstream, and many people have experienced its benefits first hand, we believe there will be a market of businesses wanting support, and becoming a self-sustained enterprise is a possibility.

A very interesting proposal that comes at the right time in Venezuela. The general public is ignorant about the whole theme of cryptocurrency, and the ones who do know only relate the subject with bitcoin. But on the other hand, the uprising interest on this type of currency makes people get involved, the proposal of the support center is very useful for those people who don't know how to start there investment in dash.

Hello Guillermo, thanks for your support! And you are right, people start knowing about btc because was the first one, but then they realized that is not usefull more than an store of value. And there is when DASH come to scene.
