I just wanted to say thank you to this great community and the team, I think you are doing great work during these difficult times in the crypto space.
I am longterm superbullish in general, but especially when it comes to Narrative. While the team is finishing the Beta, I think it was a great idea from Ted O'Neill to start the advertising campaign with this interview
where he made it clear that Narrative has to focus on the 99% of the world population that is outside of crypto instead of fighting against the other several thousand crypto projects for the 1% people who are already in the crypto space- this would be wasted energy.
Also it seems important to me that while we are in a bear market, in order to be successful we have to act as a contrarian. While everyone else is afraid and and makes dumb decisions, we should go out and build strong connections and partnerships.
This could also give us more attention right away if we are one of the few projects doing well while the others are falling down further and despair.
Also Narrative has running monthly costs like salaries to cover, so we also should not lose precious time. The time to act is always now, not in a distant future.
1. The team could contact social media faculties of universities, giving general information on the project. Students are in general full of ideas and could profit as content generators on the platform. Having professors and lecturers on board would be the best advertisement in itself, they would act as extreme multipliers of Narrative.
2. Giving away free niches (limited amount, e.g. 200 or 500 or 1000) to small companies.
I am aware that niche rewards will be added to the revenue pool, however giving away some niches for free would save Narrative enormous amounts of money needed for advertising. And the returns will be huge. There are many small companies focussing on international customers who want to be present on as many social media channels as possible, e.g. bars, restaurants, small shops attracting international tourists. Optionally Narrative could demand that the companies receiving a free niche have to put a link to Narrative on their company's website- that way Narrative would be present on hundreds of websites with potentially several thousands of customers outside of the crypto space, who have never heard of the project- this would have a huge advertisement value in my eyes.
This would boost the level of awareness of Narrative and consequently the number of paid niches within a few weeks making the release of the Beta next year an explosive event which would then very likely attract large companies to place advertisements on Narrative.
I hope you find some value in my ideas and if so, kindly support them, and in advance I may wish you and your families a happy festive season and a successful new year.
