NOUNS NEWS EXTENDED

TL;DR

  • Nouns News, a media group dedicated to bringing awareness of all things nounish through authentic and engaging content across all social channels.
  • 5 months of operations, team of 9 people.
  • Budget: 78 ETH.

SUMMARY

After the success and funding of Nouns News Seasons 1-3, we have expanded our team and efforts to reach a wider audience.

Our strategy is focused on Top of Funnel marketing tactics, to capture as many eyes as possible.

Objectives

  1. Drive awareness and favorability of NounsDAO as an innovative leader in the web3 space.
  2. Engage audiences outside of mainstream Web3 with Nouns brand.
  3. Build an authentic perspective through content that drives deeper interest in Nouns Dao.

Strategy

Proliferating Nouns brand(s) with content that is entertaining, educational, and engaging.

  • TikTok - TikTok is the platform for virality. Trending content on TikTok has the ability to inspire people to take action and learn more about Nouns. We will be focusing on staying on top of the trends and tying it into Nouns Dao and Nouns projects.

Nouns FAQ:

  • Innovation - A new vtube avatar will be designed and used with AI technology to create educational Nouns content. We will be updating our graphics, sounds and other branding elements.

  • Cross-Platform Approach - In order to connect with unique audiences across all platforms, we will repurpose content to each of our social channels (TikTok, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, Website). This gives us greater opportunities to rank in search - within the platforms and on Google.

  • Collaborations - Partnering with other Nouns proposals to showcase their Nounish products/ideas/initiatives (from IRL projects, like Nouns OTG and Nouns Treasure Hunts, to Nounish product launches, like merch/coffee/goods).

Nouns Vision sunglasses trend:

  • Contests & Giveaways - Giveaways are one of the most powerful content types, as they are a great entry point for new members. We’d like to continue hosting weekly or bi-weekly contests, with ETH prizes and/or nounish products from our collaborations. We’d like to focus not only on rewarding new members online, but also people who participate in public video shoots.

Brandweek Miami 2022:

  • Community Involvement - Our dedicated discord channel will be an open space for us to interact with current Nouns holders and community members, delivering monthly reports on our progress and implementing trending creative ideas.

What up Leo! Nice work on the proposal.

At first glance I saw 78 eth and my gut said that’s too much, but I broke the numbers down so I could address my initial feeling.

78 eth = $106,255.50 (at current price)
$106,255.50 / 5 Months = $21 251.10 per month
$21,251.10 / 9 Contributors = 2,361.23 per person per month

I think that is pretty reasonable. We cant expect to pinch pennies when people are trying to be creative and help nouns spread. That being said results and progress are essential so the DAO isn’t throwing money away.

I am no expert on marketing metrics and would love to have someone chime in on and rate the current exposure Nouns News has created and brainstorm project numbers for the next 5 months.

Hey!
Thank you so much for taking the time, your thoughtful comments, your kind words and your support :pray:

And yes, we believe we are being paid at a fair rate.
Just a reminder that 10 ETH out of the 78 are for contests, so the numbers are actually lower.

We have just started and the results are better than we expected.
We are very excited about the possibilities and believe we will bring significant proliferation for the ⌐◨-◨ and Nouns as a whole.

Thanks again!
Cheers

We are back with a few more updates! We were funded by NSFW and asked to try and go viral and focus on getting views on Tik Tok and YT, and we did just that. But there is more. Here is the total number of views from all 5 platforms:

Hey everyone,
In case you didn’t know or if it’s your first time reading this, we have made it official.
Our challenge to meet our goal:

And to make it more exciting and fun we decided to return the 5th and last payment to the DAO treasury if we DO NOT reach the goal.

Let the games begin :metal:
Thank you for your support :pray:
