How can we get more PR?
« on: November 10, 2014, 03:34:18 am »

What steps are being taken to get FreeMarket into a bigger role in the public sphere? This service needs to be shouted from the rooftops as far as I am concerned! FreeMarket is offering what everyone else is only dreaming of, and yet we are having trouble getting users. We should all do our part to spread the word!

I AGREE!! - Can you hear me shouting?  Sorry, but I didn't get on any rooftops, but this IS what every internet shopper on the planet should be using, instead of Ebay or Amazon or Overstock or ???

We could do something silly like collect ALL our old Iphones and Ipads and advertise them for an Auction on Ebay with a link to NxTFreeMarket or something like that.  There must be a clever way to promote right on Amazon and Ebay..

Nice idea. The first thing we need is more merchants on FreeMarket. We will be contacting to them soon.

Some merchants uses already FreeMarket. I'm one of them : https://nxtforum.org/ebooks/nxt-plaisir-valeur-d%27histoire-shop/

We don't only need seller but buyers too.

We need both, buyers and sellers, agreed.

This is exactly what people have been clambering for, and the difficulty in getting the word out is frustrating. I have been tweeting, and posting where I can, but more creative approaches are needed. One thing I did was start selling Cryptostorm monthly VPN access tokens, and then I tweeted to them about it. They retweeted, and followed, so I think that may be one approach that works: resell things, and tell the manufacturer.

We are also working to get vendors.

I have a feeling that one well-placed article will suddenly bring in droves of sellers and buyers from other services, I just don't know how to get that article written.

I think you are right. I also feel we need mgw integration so people can use the service even easier.

There is a thread here about OPB and FM:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=852187.0

I have joined in, but there will probably be some NXT questions I can't answer.

New article on FreeMarket at Bitcoin Magazine:

An interview with yours truly... I can't understand why they didn't use my professionally-taken portrait:

I'm thinking it could be a good idea to have someone with a small business or maybe something they sell out of their house, list on FreeMarket.  Anyone happen to have such a connection?  :)

If we could get several such people, I am sure we could work out a deal with them to ensure we had a steady stream of items for sale...

We have a chicken and egg problem right now. Customers want things to buy, sellers want customers. We need lots of things for sale in order to continue to have lots of things for sale, so we need to jump start the number of items that are for sale. Having no fees for 2014 wasn't enough of an incentive, but a similar, on-gopng deal for sellers who can commit to listing a LOT of items is a possibility.

Anyone who knows sellers like this, or who wants to become a seller like this, please PM me!

Being both retail and wholesale salesman in real life, I am willing to help out with both listing some things ánd with a plan.

For Melodius, we had a tiered plan that would fit Freemarket just as well.

I am away for the coming two days, but am available on Sunday.

The main thing is to kickstart the place so other sales people see it's viable. :)

Should be doable.

The primary focus should be on merchants, as a prior comment says. A DAO can undertake the task of migrating people's already-established e-stores to FreeMarket. But this should be done for free, of course. Otherwise for the merchant's perspective it would be meaningless to pay for migrating to a marketplace which no one uses. I am sure that there are cryptocoin enthusiasts out there who also own online shops. The main reason they're not on FreeMarket is that they don't know about it. There are inbound marketing strategies, as well as companies offering viral advertisement services, such as viraltactic.com. The FreeMarket team may consider making some expense on that.

Other than that: One may pursue the task of a middle-man, buying from Amazon or whatever the crap there now is, and selling at FreeMarket for no profit at all other than making the name known.

Also: If Coinomat integration may be made, people may directly pay using their credit cards. That makes FreeMarket a desirable one for the public.
