Title: [MC] Nxt Marketing Fund Committee Applications
Post by: Damelon on March 23, 2014, 01:10:05 am
On behalf of the Nxt Marketing Committee I want to make you all aware that we (allwelder, joefox, salsacz, jefdieseland Damelon), have met and are now open to receive your plans for Marketing proposals.

The Marketing Committee has at its disposal 2,654,774 Nxt, which are meant for projects to promote Nxt.

Everyone can propose plans to the Committee, but the plans need to meet certain criteria to be considered. Key factors in getting your proposal accepted is by making it clear, organised and accountable. This means you know what you are going to do, how you are going to do it, and that it must be possible to check what your results are.

After submitting your plan, we will consider it by the parameters posted below and discuss it for at most one week, in which time we can ask you to clarify points that are not clear or would need changing. Then we will vote. We have decided to use a simple majority vote of three out of five to be sufficient to approve a project.

To apply for funds, please make a separate topic in this subforum. Start the topic name with [MC] so we will recognise it. Then use the format below to outline the project. Feel free to add necessary documents by the use of links. The idea is to make it very easy to get an overview of your project.

FORMAT FOR PROPOSALS:
Proposals need the following details. We will not accept proposals without these:

1. Nxt account and userID/contact info for submitter

2. Submission date

3. A short description of the project with your goals very clearly specified(three sentences max.)
Make an outline so it's easy to see what your basic plan is
3b. Long description as needed
You can of course describe your plan in full, if needed!

4. Specify the target audience
Which group are you aiming your project at? Please keep in mind that "everyone" is NOT a valid group to be aiming at.

5. Budget
Be as specific as possible. Try to use accepted costs as CPM/CPC and CPA. (Cost met mille (views/impressions), Cost per Click, Cost Per Acquisition).
Sloppy budgets will not be accepted for a vote.

6. Specify deadlines
No project can be without a specific time limit. We need to know when you plan to either implement it, or when a project is supposed to go live.

7. Metrics need to be specified
How are you going to check how many people you reached? This is needed to be able to see how succesful you are in your aims.

If you have any questions, please ask them in this thread, so we can answer them in public.

There was a form, but it messed up translating it to a sheet.
Needs to be fixed, that's why I removed it for now :)

Damelon:
6 stars and a shield...u look like Captain America, bro!

Seriously, this is a placeholder post for my A'dam conference budget request.
I'll have some numbers here soon.

On conferences, we've got A'dam and Vienna coming up, I'd like to see lots of co-operation between the 2 teams on promo material.
So: should we start one central thread here for all conferences, seperate threads for each conf, and/or a central promo material thread ?

be AFK for an hour or 2....

Seperate threads for all three topics: 1 for each conference and one for promo material, please :)

Is there any guidelines for how long it takes for a proposal to be accepted or not? ('accepted' meaning the beginning of the discussion period prior to the MC committee member vote?)

The standard we try to adhere to is one full week == 7 days from the date of submission.

Sometimes we either don't make it (RL commitments etc.) or a topic changes during discussion so the plan must be evaluated better.
Also, a proposer can withdraw or request to postpone.

Lastly, this week one proposal (nxtstarter) was discovered to be under my radar (other people hád seen it), so I asked to make the period longer.

Thanks.  I just wanted to make sure that you guys were aware that I'd resubmitted the pool promotional fund idea in the correct format.
29 views and no replies yet made me wonder.
