Short description of the project
Trailer Advertising
-----------------------------
Long description
My son races Motocross. Well now I have decided to sponsor a young adult who is on the verge of going pro. He has made it to many national events to only have his bike die on him. I am now in charge of his equipment and transportation. We will be heading to Vegas and Tennessee for national events as well as all over Iowa and parts of Illinois, Ohio and Minnesota.

We have custom graphics made by https://www.facebook.com/DarksideStudioArts for the bikes. I am looking for NXT to sponsor a wrap for the trailer. The trailer will see thousands of people if not millions. I have a vested interest in NXT and would like to see it get bigger. 
-----------------------------

Target Audience
The youth of racing and other young people that we pass on the road. I would like a scan-able bar-code on the trailer.
-----------------------------

Budget
116,000 Nxt
any extra will be sent back to the committee
-----------------------------

Deadline
ASAP racing has started last week and I have already put 1500 miles on the trailer.

-----------------------------
Metrics
I'd like the bar-code to be able to track how many scans per-day.
-----------------------------

Here's my modest input ;)
It's a big chunk of nxt, used to target a non-familiar audience.

I don't think it will have a repercussion on us.

Imagine we used these nxt to sponsor an ad on a java/Developer forum for example.
Don't you think it can be more useful?

I could also do that, ask for some nxt to add a painting of nxt on my car. Since I live in paris it would get a big exposure, but i don't think it's a good idea.

Don't take my "no" as a fact, community does not resume to me. It does not mean your son won't be great :)

It's not even a real "no", i'm just mostly skeptical of this idea. If my math is correct it's around 5% ot the marketing fund.

We need exposure and we are not getting it.  Put it on a forum, all you are doing is getting to the people that already know we are here..... NXT is amazing, we just need to get the message to the mass. my two cents.

Nope :D
That's good for me.

I understand it's a gamble, I gamble thousands of dollars every year hoping one of them makes it big. Will they maybe maybe not but its a good chance that one could go somewhere. It's a large investment on both ends. If you guys are reluctant I understand. No hard feelings. I will always support NXT in anyway I can.

I didn't say we didn't want feedback, that's fine and we will take note of it :)

I just wanted to clear up confusion about who votes about it, or not. That is all.

Hm, this hasn't gotten much attention.

For me, this is basically about whether we want to do things like DOGE does them.
That is: do cool things, targeting a cool crowd.

I personally feel it's not the way to go, as we don't have that image.
Doge had it from the start: a freaky crowd that did things for kicks and had fun in the process.

There is absolutely *nothing* wrong with that, but to me, it's confusing if we start to do the same, and it also might even backfire into "look at those pathetic copy cats".

On the other hand, the designers DO make cool stuff, so it might just be good to do it.

I'm on the fence at the moment...

I'm on the fence at the moment...

Here is an update or clarification for each race event.
I have a reserved parking location at each track. My truck and trailer are the first thing you see as you pull into the parking lot. So every person that comes to the event see's my equipment.(which happens to be a 2014 Ford F150 and my trailer) On most events the attendance is between 1500-2000 people. More for qualifiers and bigger events. I know the owners of each race track personally. I pay a fee to have premium parking at all tracks.

I completely understand. It's a tough call. I will say there is a reason why so many companies use billboard advertising. This is just a moving billboard that will reach a lot more people. Like I said before I have an energy drink company that sponsors my son that wants to wrap it if NXT does not. Wednesday is the week mark for this application. If I don't hear anything by Thursday morning I will most likely give the other sponsor the go ahead on the artwork they have submitted and get the ball rolling with them.
Thank you very much for the consideration.

The vote will be up tomorrow. We could make it a 12 hour one instead of a whole 24, so you have the answer in time.

Does that sound like a good idea? Also looking at my fellow committee members here...

No the normal is fine, I have time. I posted an update in my last post for your consideration as well.

I don't know if I mentioned this or not but, but if the wrap is sponsored, it wouldn't be just on the trailer, the NXT logo follows the bike as the main sponsor also. So whenever he is introduced over the intercom and what not they mention his main sponsor which would be nxtforum.org Or what ever the committee decided on.

No vote, but here some thoughts:

The target audience will probably not be reached efficiently, but as a byproduct, this campaign could produce a lot of usable pictures and video-material, which could be employed for further marketing. Flying bike with a NXT-logo, cool, we don't have to use it in a doge way, more distinguished, but the symbolism would be perfect: NXT = freedom. A couple of bikers in a serious discussion in front of a NXT van: NXT = community driven. Things like that...

Price is stiff, but maybe the byproducts would make it worth.

Plus I like the enthusiasm of monte572  ;D

Vote is up! We'll know in 24 hours :)
Feel free to continue posting. The points made are good. This is a different kind of marketing that we normally do.

sorry, I asked this before, and its not mentioned in the proposal.

What is the artwork? Who will do it? Who will fund it?

Until I see this information I have to vote against the plan.

Sorry, i see the dark arts studio link. Is the artwork included in the budget? Whats the breakdown on art and vinyl wrap?
