[MC] Nxter.org
« on: October 15, 2014, 10:13:36 am »

1. Nxt account and userID/contact info for submitter

UserID: apenzl
NXTER.ORG account: NXT-EAVH-SLEV-KSEE-EE2KP

2. Submission date

15.10.2014

3. A short description of the project with your goals very clearly specified (three sentences max.)

To enable nxter.org to become financially self-sufficient within 12 months (by expanding its published content, its appeal beyond the crypto sphere, its readership and therefore its capacity for site monetization), which, in turn, will maximise its ability to help Nxt become established worldwide as a leading cryptocurrency platform.

3b. Long description as needed

Nxter.org has been a free (and ad-free) service since January 2014.

Nxter.org, highly valued as a Nxt news source for Nxters, is currently publishing some of the most widely read, Nxt-related content on the internet, attracting readers not only from the Nxt community but also from the crypto world more generally.

Funding from MC would enable us to:

    * relaunch the NXT Newsletter

    * kickstart the "Get Published - Get Paid" campaign:
http://nxter.org/?p=2806[/list]
    * make more article series / solicit and commission 'front page' articles

    * create multilingual sub sites

    * reach out to non-Nxters. We want to promote Nxt more heavily to "outsiders", as we believe that Nxt is ready, but the media is ignoring it or simply doesn't know.

Nxterpoints / NXTP:
On October 10 2014 an asset called NXTP (Nxterpoints) was issued on the Nxt Asset Exchange. Nxterpoints will constitute shares in nxter.org's future profits.

The funding we are asking for would be distributed, in the form of dividends, to all those who make qualifying contributions to nxter.org over the next 12 months. The MC funding would therefore, in effect, guarantee a minimum payment for those making contributions to nxter.org.

Contributors who would qualify for Nxterpoints include:

    * Bloggers.

    * Article writers.

    * Editors.

    * Translators.

    * PR workers

    * graphical workers

All content published on nxter.org will be broadcast via the mailing list, social media, advertisement, guest blogs and other channels.

The MC funding would also be used to cover the cost of a faucet game and 2 promotional contests designed to attract new people to the Nxt platform, from outside the crypto world  -  including, for example, students, social entrepreneurs, gamers and developers.

Nxter.org roadmap

PHASE 1

Set up core team:
- Leader: apenzl
- English editor: oldnbold
- Writers: apenzl, Cassius, KarlKarlsson, Ludom (French)
- General business manager: KarlKarlsson
- Multilingual: Ludom, editor of French site / French Nxt Community

Development of the site:
- Redesign the site
- Set up an efficient backend:
- For easy adding subsites in multiple languages

- Make video guides for editors and new local site managers
- Automated email notifications between editor, writers, translators


Content is king:
- 1 weekly Nxt Market Report
- A minimum of 2 weekly articles

- Restart NXT Newsletter, publish weekly
- Push on social media (Twitter, FB, G+, Pinterest, for now)

PHASE 2

Get paid
- Ask MC for floor value
- Issue Nxterpoint asset
- Try to sell adspace on nxter.org
- Open up for partnerships / services / sponsors

Content is king:
- More main languages...
- Get more writers and freelancers

Targeted promotion:
- Nxtads
- Google ads
- SuperNET ads?
- Local PR workers in the countries we cover (Nxt community based)
- Write guest blogs on other media channels
- Keep writing, keep publishing (unique content) and push it outside the Nxt Community.

- Promotional contests:
1. Faucet game (learn about Nxt > use the client to get some NXT). Goal: New Nxt ambassadors.
2.  Bounty for best Nxt RL use case idea (Goal: Push the limits + help to make it happen - inspiration for developers / the community, send out targeted PR texts, report from on the process and publish. Push.)
3.  Best promotion in the world (Goal: Cheap Nxt promotion + creation of decentralized street teams for later use  + publishing the meme and the promo material).

PHASE 3

Host other Nxt services on nxter.org.
Partnerships with Nxt businesses, from whom our user base can benefit.

PHASE 4

Go from payment in Nxterpoints to payment in NXT (or a coin built on Nxt).

4. Specify the target audience

http://nxter.org/get-published-get-paid/

"Get Published Get Paid" is aimed at bloggers, writers, translators, editors, and visionaries with an interest in Nxt.

During the last few months we've begun to target other altcoin communities and Bitcoiners as well, and we've expanded the site with more languages, starting with a French sub site, controlled by Ludom. Recently, we have been seeing increasing numbers of "non-Nxters"  registering to receive the nxter.org newsletter and following and retweeting our articles; we think this may, in large part, be due to our coverage of the SuperNET ICO and our articles focusing on Nxt as a platform.

These people are new to Nxt and aren't following nxtforum.org. So our target base has grown from being Nxters to a much larger audience, who we should definitely reward for their interest (Read: turn into Nxt believers).

Moreover, we want to build on this momentum and reach out to certain non-crypto segments of people for whom Nxt should be of interest. Nxt CORE is now so developed that new users, businesses and programmers have plenty to play with. And they should. We believe in creating the news, then spreading it as widely as possible, this is one way to create a network effect. With 1.3 coming, we want to have more ambassadors worldwide. We plan on using bounties and run promotional contests to reach this goal.

5. Budget

We ask for 240.000 NXT.

The 240.000 NXT will be distributed like this:

Nxter.org budget draft:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/18KVl9GGn-jSC3DEw7K4XLsmS4SiGT5xPGJp0JLOjUK0/edit?usp=sharing

Get published. Get paid - accounting:

Nxter.org accounting sheet:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1eHv5AihIh1tCZT9A3igUPLa0Cl_b3T6VIhCG-_J3Fq4/edit?usp=sharing

6. Specify deadlines

Nxter.org is live since January 2014.

The Nxterpoint loyalty point system for contributors will officially launch on October 20, 2014. The first dividend is planned to be paid November 1st 2014.

The MC funds will give a floor value to the Nxterpoints for one year: Oct 2014 - Oct 2015.

Within this period of one year, the funding will also support the launch of a faucet game and 2 promotional Nxt contests as described in the roadmap, PHASE 2 (Promotional contests). Exact dates for the launch of these have not yet been set as they depend on research, partners and Nxt development. We can't set a release date for NRS 1.3 or 1.4 for example. We can have everything ready, but timing is important, and we plan for this to be big. A big bang for the buck so to speak.

After this 1 year time frame we hope to be able to stand on our own two feet. We count on it. And that's a big part of the goal of this funding, because that means  promotion and marketing for Nxt as long as nxter.org continues to exist, without having to spend more community funds. :)

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 successful you are in your aims.

There's a public accounting sheet that will show the effect of the 'Get Published - Get Paid' campaign, including: number of new articles published, number of new nxterpoint recipients, translations, etc.

Nxter.org uses Google Analytics to track traffic. Visitors, number of Twitter followers and retweets, G+ and FB shares, signup for newsletters (opens and clicks). The total number of new comments left each week on published articles.

Information about the number of different types of reader nxter.org has. For example: commercial business; social entrepreneur; charity; private investor; daytrader; crypto developer; creative. This information will be obtained from surveys sent to newsletter subscribers asking them to select their areas of interest and from a permanent poll accessed from the menu on the site's home page, the results of which will also be analyzed to find ways to optimize the site's content.

Contests:
Number of contestants will be obvious. They will contact us directly.

New users joining Nxt because of the faucet game will register in the blockchain (and in the faucet backend).

Hits generated by contestants' contributions (written answers, pictures and videos) and our spinoff articles will be tracked, for example how many contestants become returning visitors, how many new visitors do they bring, who leaves the site to get themselves a NxtWallet - or visit a porn site instead  :-\ , and the reach on social media.

We haven't budgeted for a solution to monitor the extent to which references to Nxt in other news media worldwide are due to nxter.org.

That's a great initiative. Love the NXT and Supernet updates so far. They are very handy for people that can't follow the forums.
Good planning also! Hope that get's supported. I will add some small donations.

Thanks, allwelder.

I suppose the other members of MC would have asked questions if the proposal was unclear to them. 

?

We're looking forward to hearing your decision.  :)

Hello MC.

I want to call your attention to a proposal I've made on behalf of the team currently involved in nxter.org.
https://nxtforum.org/marketing-committee/(mc)-nxter-org/

So far allwelder has answered.

We've put a lot of work into this.

It says in your board, that proposals will be under discussion for a maximum of a week.
https://nxtforum.org/marketing-committee/marketing-committee-voting-procedure/

10 days have gone by, and we'd like to know what you think. Answer questions if necessary. Hear your verdict.

Sorry apenzl

 my MC duties have fallen by way side, and not for making a scene, but with the changes in the past 6 months, I think the MC is no longer relevant.

 I think your site is great, and I think it should be supported, but I think we have reached the stage where you can find investors on the AE.
 
 That said, if the NXTMC no longer has an agenda, but still has funds, this would be a great project to fund.

 Of course it comes down to a vote and ugh beaurocracy.

 I say yes. Final answer.

Hi jef, thanks for your answer and information.

The idea is to give the community an opportunity to earn "reward points" (profit-sharing assets), and to use AE for distribution and paying dividends. This to offer active nxters compensation for their promo-work (through nxter.org), hopefully motivate inactive stakeholders + give new nxters a way to earn their way in if they want - by writing (get published, get paid campaign), spreading the word or contributing with other skills. That's why we found the Nxt marketing fund relevant instead of just doing an IPO or crowd funding campaign.

So… Who is responsible for the fund? Who is left in this committee? If only allwelder is, then let's go. :)

I don't quite get that I can't find such info anywhere here. Or that a new community vote hasn't been set up to find new committee members.

Elaboration of the background and overall goals of this project.

Man, I hate the topic, but love this thread.

And I just posted an application to MC.
https://nxtforum.org/marketing-committee/(mc)-nxter-org/

IMO we could address most of the issues discussed here. Please read all the way through the application.


I started Nxter.org in January and I've published NXT Newsletters until 4 months ago, when decentralization won / killed me.
Or to big up myself: When I chose to build a site instead of chasing various threads.

I actually thought I could write the newsletters simultaneously, but with no funds and only one life, it only became a couple of articles per week, and a social media effort. TBH, while writing the newsletters I didn't even have time to promote them, just posted them in the BTT-thread and on nxtforum - then went off to follow more news.

Anyways, this is what changed my focus:
https://nxtforum.org/nxt-promotion/nxt-friendly-crypto-news-site/

We're now a 5 person core team of dedicated Nxters running nxter.org. We've made a roadmap, a business plan and all that. I've redesigned the site, both the front and the backend - to enable an efficient workflow: Pitching > writing > editing > publishing > sharing it. In multiple languages. We've started a French nxter.org sub site. We publish weekly market reports, among other Nxt news, and also write the SuperNET Newsletters.

We haven't gotten around to promoting it wildly yet. But here's the idea:

Everybody here has at least one field of interest, which is his reason to own NXT. - Share it. Write it down.
Instead of keeping it inside or discussing it among ourselves only - let's spread the word and the visions. That's a way to start a network effect.

I see lots of good ideas in here - as always! To help Nxt take off to the next stage. But let's get it out. We can even get paid. Put as much or as little energy into this as you can or want. We do have a professional English editor waiting to take care of misspellings and asking questions if something needs to be cleared up.

All contributions to nxter.org will be rewarded with Nxterpoints (NXTP). These are loyalty points that represents a share of the net profit of nxter.org. We couldn't find a better way to honor the purpose of the site or to make it reward the contributing Nxt Community members better. The more you contribute, the more NXTP shares of the profit you'll get. You can read more here: http://nxter.org/get-published-get-paid/

I've asked the MC to fund a floor value to the Nxterpoints (NXTP) which go to all contributors, and to cover some of the expenses for 3 big contests that aim to get new people to Nxt.

One is a faucet that I once planned with QBTC, which stranded because we both ran out of time. Its goal is to reach out to crypto- and non-crypto people, make them learn-by-using the features of Nxt in a little game, and have them surf Nxt powered websites in search for the answers, that will eventually give them a NXT reward.

We first have to answer this question: What problem does NXT solve?

The second contest is a competition. The goal is to get ppl brainstorming real life use cases for Nxt. Lots of possible use cases have already been thought out and published in pre-ANNs of pre-ANNs of Bitcoin related pre-ANNs in the media, but let's get them in here instead and relate it to the Nxt platform. Offer a grand prize for the best "Nxt Solution". And let's make students worldwide, youth politicians, anons and gamers contribute to the brainstorm, because maybe something new will come up. Inspiration from outside. We'll use this contest for spinoff articles and PR texts. Maybe we can even announce many of the proposed use cases in a matter of months.

NXT solves many problems, and they're easy to see for those in the 'know', like people reading this forum.
The hard part is getting people outside of crypto to know 'WE' exist. That's where short videos can play a BIG role IMO.

Third contest: Make the best Nxt promotion. The goal is to get a worldwide promotion of Nxt (or Nxt-based features). I won't tell you how. But you can win a grand prize. Suggestions: Bomb your city walls with Nxt logo stencils. Write an article, print Nxt infographics and hang 'em in your university, local library or mall. Document it. Videofilm yourself using a NxtInside innovation like Freemarket or Nxtty. SuperNET. Create your first MS-coin. Try to make a Nxt meme go viral. Anything.

The most interesting part of this 3rd proposal is, IMO, that we'll get off the internet and have whoever wants to participate do it locally, worldwide. Even if they don't win the first- second- or third prize, they've promoted us and learned about Nxt, and they may be willing to carry on - for fun or for the revolution. We *could* aim to create a global street team of promotors. For Nxt related businesses to buy into. Net income from such a useful adventure would be dividended out to NXTP holders. All of us.

The last NXT Newsletter I wrote wasn't boring. It covered 2 months of Nxt development (simplified) but it was 40 pages long! The best comment I received IMO was this retweet: 'Too much Nxt news!' It may have been a friendly joke, but it was the truth. The problem is definitely NOT, that we don't have enough Nxt news, it's a matter of what news we choose to publish. I want nxter.org to be "serious", always wanted that, so I've opened up to private blogs now to provoke myself.  ;)
And we're even gonna open up to private businesses / partnerships.   

The world is wide open, and with AE gaining attention and NRS 1.4 coming up, it's only going to get worse.  ;D

I hope, that you're with me on this. I hope you see our idea. I hope the whole community can do this.
Please discuss / chip in.

Everybody here has at least one field of interest, which is his reason to own NXT. - Share it. Write it down. ...
All contributions to nxter.org will be rewarded with Nxterpoints (NXTP).

That's a great initiative. Love the NXT and Supernet updates so far.
I think I could write ideas down for this.... And steal your Nxterpoints :)
I'll collect some thoughts over the next weeks.

Sounds good! Steal as many as you can. :)

Great ideas apenzl!! Competitions are a great way to get people active!

"CryptoFest" would love to work with you and the nxter.org team to help promote NXT!

Thanks. :)

I've posted your link here, btw:
https://nxtforum.org/asset-exchange-general/(ann)(ico)-nxtmovie/msg118566/


The competitions aim for the same end goal as what Nexern describes, but takes a slightly differently path to get there.

i already wrote about this but here is one example for crowdfunding.

1. locate where the innovators/seekers etc. are organized. e.g. portals, forums etc.
2. create a landing page for them, explaining exactly the steps neccessary todo.
3. contact/inform them e.g. within a forum with serveral thousends users.
4. provide asisistance for one succesfull run
5. if neccesary even cover the initial costs for them. they are valuable replicators.

one succesfull funding will spread like wildfire.

repeat this for DGS -> music | videos and other easy to transfer digital goods.

moreover, support additional blockchain based projects reaching the external market e.g.
an nxt version of proof of existence http://www.proofofexistence.com/.

do the same here. locate the target group in the net and communicate with them to create
a first use case.

this bottom->top approach works! i already using this for the hive project. this way
nxt can easily reach forums with 1.000 - 100.000 users with very tiny costs, just go
where the users are.

This nxter.org thing is just an attempt to drum ppl together to make more happen.

The magazine part is bringing ppl in + spreading the word. The main goal of nxter.org (IMO) is to motivate ppl to take part, give ordinary ppl and businesses a clear understanding of what Nxt can do for them. Yes, it's a promotional tool too. For Nxt, Nxt businesses, coins with NxtInside. Our motivation is to PUSH the word about Nxt and its use cases, not to take credit.

Bad communication / management is still a major problem in our community IMHO. This slows everything down. Good things may be happening "behind the scenes" somewhere, but unfortunately the knowledge of this makes most community members just sit back and wait for stuff to get built. Nxt to go to the moon. "Others will do it".

I hope Nxt Marketing is working.
I hope Nxt Foundation is working.
I hope Nxt Organization is working.
I hope the Nxt Inside initiative will be working.

But most of all I hope(d) they would coordinate their work and be more transparent about it in the forum. It just won't happen?!! So I'm trying to get back to gathering information from all the Nxt parties, put it together and publish it. 1. as a Nxt promotion but MOST IMPORTANTLY 2. as a necessary service to ourselves and 3. as a attempt to actively target and reach new user groups and businesses.

I'm not easily pissed off, I don't flame ppl, and I think I'm in an ok standing with about everyone here. So my hope is, that individuals and the parties mentioned above will cooperate, or use nxter.org as a central point of information where they themselves can post and be sure that we'll get the word out. I'm interested in creating a community driven hub. Not in centralizing Nxt. Not in personally drinking aperitifs and being photographed with a big mr. Corporate Business CEO. I'm sure others will do that better than me. :)

Nxter.org is what I can contribute with. It's a domain, a user base and a handwritten service, but it can be turned into anything. Whoever contributes can add value, so you choose. Whatever net profit nxter.org will make from contributions, advertisement, article sales, sponsors and partnerships is shared among all contributors or reinvested in initiatives to benefit Nxt, NXT, NxtInside, Nxt Movement.

Bah, what a promo speech this turned into. I'm supposed to announce this on Monday. I still will. But thanks for great feedback, I hope this leads to more action.

Salscz, JoeFox Allwelder and Me are still the members.
I don't think MC really has a purpose anymore, nor does it have an unlimited funding ( or any more funding) since the AE came about.
I for one would prefer projects float on the AE, either freely with the expectation of return on capital, or in an altruistic community manner,  like a crowdfund.
This way you there is not 4 person vote, but rather the whole community deciding individually to fund the asset or not.

OH,I also forgot who is responsible for the MC fund.
But after AE is out,many projects are crowdfunding on it and got the vote and investment from community members.So MC is not important as before.
Now AE is much a better choice for investors and fund raise.

Don't worry, I'm aware of who we elected to control the unclaimed coins (http://nxter.org/nxt-marketingfund-committee/), and also that Damelon stepped down. I just got a little confused about jefdiesel's "my MC duties have fallen by way side".

Now I'm even more confused, tbh.

Agree the proposal.

I say yes. Final answer.

OK. Dancing gif @ nxter.org. And then...

I don't think MC really has a purpose anymore, nor does it have an unlimited funding ( or any more funding) since the AE came about.

Not sure how to read this.

Does MC have funding? Or does it not have funding?
Isn't the purpose of MC to review proposals from the community and decide whether or not to fund it with the unclaimed coins?

MC is free to turn a proposal down, that's part of the game, and no hard feelings afterwards.
Now 2 of 4 haven't done that, 2 out of 4 haven't said a thing.

We prepared this proposal in the belief that it would be in the spirit of the MC. No matter where each of you are now. It tries to share some of the last unclaimed coins between contributors to the marketing of Nxt. I'm not asking for compensation for the months of full time work for Nxt. I've got some donations, and I'm doing this out of free will. The proposal is for work that haven't been done yet, and for a long term goal.

I checked before posting the proposal, and maybe I just couldn't find the last update. Maybe there isn't one. What I've seen is Salsacz mention that 323,760 NXT was left in the fund, then being corrected by another MC member (https://nxtforum.org/marketing-committee/13-on-the-mc-fund-already-spent/msg19682/), so 548,760 NXT would be left.

We ask for 240K.

Then there's Joefox's FAQ from June 1st (https://nxtforum.org/marketing-committee/marketing-fund-committee-qa/) which links to a spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AoE8nAOEMIa7dFFnWjRNYTM4RkhsN3dRRXFBaTBiaHc that shows an amount of 1,165,521 unspent NXT in MC Fund, of which I figure a large portion is reserved.

I think everybody is aware that some members of the committee don't get along very well, but you all wanted something when you ran for election. Your vote is your vote. Is your vote. I'm just asking you to get on with this one. I've explained why I think it's relevant to propose it to MC. You can disagree. If it's more complicated than that, you can even PM me or Skype me. If there's no funding left, well that's it. If there is, I don't think the purpose of electing 5 community members to control the MC coins was to just let it hang.

So in hopes of a clear and straight up answer (or make that 4 ;) ),

I mean you can choose to get demanded fund either from MC or AE.
If with MC,I give yes about your detailed proposal as before said.
As we know what Nxter.org have done,it's a good news website for Nxt brand,and should get active support.

Thanks a lot for clarifying, allwelder. And for your positive response to the application as well.  :)

Apologies for the late response -- I wanted to take a closer look at the proposal and all of the details.

I have no problem saying yes, and that gives you enough votes to get the funding you've asked for.

I'll connect with the "keymaster" for the MC fund and have him wire the Nxt to your account.

Congrats, apenzl!

Nice to see, it was getting a bit confusing, thanks for clearing this up. Glad to see apenzl having success with his efforts. I really like this site! And MC well done! :)
