Template for Submissions

By submitting a proposal the submitter agrees to the Marketing Fund charter. All proposals need the following details. Fund keepers will not accept proposals without these:

1. Submissions need to be lodged in the designated Marketing Fund child board on peercointalk.org. The title of the thread must start with [MF].

2. Peercointalk.org account and email/contact info for submitter applying for the Fund

3. Submission date

4. A short description of the project with your goals very clearly specified (three sentences max.)
Please make an outline so it’s easy to see what your basic plan is.
4b. Long description as needed
You can of course describe your plan in full, link to other information etc.

5. 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.

6. Budget
Be as specific as possible. Provide costs in dollars/pounds/euros, etc. estimated per day/print run/product, etc. as per your proposal. Budgets with recurring costs should cover for at least 3 months of operation.
Vague or incomplete budgets will not be accepted for a vote at discretion of the fund keeper(s).

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. Turnaround times
Requests will be turned around in 7-10 days for smaller requests. Larger ones (e.g. 250 PPC+) may take up to 14-17 days to allow community to discuss and the voting process to happen. Extensions over 17 days of discussion time can be allowed at discretion of the fund keeper(s) or on request of the community or submitter(s). Reasonable requests will be granted automatically. Extensions will be communicated in the same thread as the submission by the fund keepers. Submissions which exceed the available funds will be put on hold and won’t be voted for until adequate funds are available. Edit 4/7/14: Just for clarification, from submission date the intent is that there would be discussion first for at least 4 days, and up to 14 days for larger proposals. The submission can be changed during the discussion period. Once the 3 days voting period starts, submissions can no longer be altered.

10. Payments
Payments will be in PPC and to an address provided by the submitter in the proposal. Proof of ownership of that address may be required.

Just like to re-post some of the ideas I have which people can go with and submit:

  • Marketing portal with all peercoin services and goodies nicely presented (website can link to it or it can just be a page on website)
  • Making a template for a press release
  • Providing quality articles for newsletter or website
  • Creating video snippets, 10-20 seconds of video promoting aspects of Peercoin for Youtube channel
  • Create banners, pictures etc. we can use for Peercoin advertising
  • Presenting Peercoin on conferences or meetings
  • Most viewed Peercoin promoting post on Bitcointalk contest
  • The hosting of interesting projects improving or promoting use of Peercoins
  • Small seed or support to start Peercoin promoting business selling Peercoin related products
  • Best Peercoin in the news, -photo, -article, -on the radio or even -on tv!
  • Lobbying and convincing payment providers, high profile merchants or exchanges to add Peercoins
  • Charts comparing Peercoin with other coins

Just a few ideas, be creative. Funding for hours spent, materials or cost of professionals, where reasonable is not a problem. As long as it is not excessive and appeals to the majority of the community.
