Who am I?

I’m a full stack developer, crypto and blockchain enthusiast, Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/hector-b-7677828a/ Twitter: @BravoVlog. I was developing software solutions for for one of the most important banks in Mexico, My plan is to leave my traditional job and dedicate 100% to the world of cryptocurrencies because I think it’s the future, unlike the traditional banks. I met SmarthCash thanks to the people of Cancun who did a meetup in Mexico City, I am very excited for the future that Smartcash envisions.

I want to contribute my bit to this great smartcash project.

Goals

  • Develop the first SmartCash cryptocurrency marketplace in Mexico

  • We plan to transact 4000+ dollars in smartcash on the first 2 months. We’re going to track the results and show them to us.

  • Open at least 1800 real wallets on the first two months, with real transactions over the marketplace. We’re going to track the results and show them to us.

  • Massive Smartcash adoption and usability.

  • Reach thousands of people who will hear about SmartCash with marketing campaigns, especially video marketing and email Marketing.

  • Scale to all country and international

  • Implement referral program for smarthcash wallet

¿Why online Marketplace?

Global internet commerce has grown exponentially in recent years, In México Generation X, Millennials and Baby Boomers now have more access to the Internet. Free Public Networks and Smartphones stimulate growth of users and maintain connectivity 24 hours a day.

In 2016, 65.5 million of Mexicans used internet, today more than 71 million users are calculated. Three out of every four Mexican Internet users buy online with consumption averages close to 370 dollars per month. The Generation X and The Millenias are the most active in terms of Internet purchases, possibly due to their greater economic capacity.

With a powerful and creative marketing campaign aimed to Generation X (1966-1982) and the Millenias (1988-2002) we will generate new Smartcash investors who will have the incentive to make immediate commercial transactions in our platform and they will put new products to sell. With this, the Community of SMARTCASH users in Mexico will grow significantly and we will be able to do more and more commercial transactions with the SmartCash Wallets.

This is a Project in which worth Invest.

Now it’s time to give a chance to cripto marketplace, the first one in México.

Strategy

Growth SmartCash Community

I will Develop an e-commerce marketplace where the Smart community can exchange their smartcash for trending products previously reviewed by recognized youtubers*, that will make the buyers sure about the product they are going to acquire**.

  • This is thought to be done in phase two. In the phase one we are going to make the video reviews

** We are going reach our target creating youtube reviews like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tkwn2MwCRo and online marketing campaigns

We want to promote the** growth of the Smart community**, so we devised a way for people to use their smartcash to carry out transactions through an e-commerce platform.

This marketplace, unlike others (Amazon, Ebay, etc…), will be based on video reviews of the items for sale to reach our audience. The video reviews is one of the most effective sales techniques in e-commerce, even we can achieve thousands of smartcash possible users. The products reviews will be done in a professional way, either by our team or, with help of the most experienced youtubers in the field, thus achieving a greater uptake of new users and an accelerated growth of the Smart community. The community can also sell their own products in the plattform. With this medium-term strategy we can grow the community greatly.

Also, in order to quickly grow the community and have a quick capture of new users, we will carry out a spectacular draw (raffle) of two flagship smartphones, being one of the requirements to enter the draw to open a Wallet with a minimum amount of Smartcash. With that we have contemplated the opening of at least 300 wallets in the first month.

In the second month under the same strategy we hope to open 1000 more wallets and have transacted with real wallets about up to 3000 dollars.

Engage community

In addition, another strong stimulant for people to use their cryptocurrency is that all announced products will have a significant discount when purchased with Smartcash. The strategy to follow for offering products with big discounts will be the following.

Smartcash will offer an impressive 50% discount for new users who use their smartwallet.

The contribution of smartcash for the 50% discount will bring a great growth of new users who really transact with their smartwallets.

Additionally, there will be six meetups to provide information about the cryptoeconomy and smartcash, as well as seek for smartcash investors and investors to advertise products within our platform.

Topics:

  1. What Blockchain and Smartcash is and how it works,

  2. Advantages of Smartcash over other cryptocurrencies,

  3. How to open my Smartwallet,

  4. How to invest Smartcash

  5. How to make transactions with Smartcash.

  6. The future of smarthcash,

  7. How to sell your products in our smartcash plattform.

Also, we are going to create Youtube content explaining all of this issues for the spanish speaker community in the world, so they can see it and get interested in becoming part of the Smartcash community.

By creating a reliable marketplace platform, in which the buyers will have the security that they are going to acquire the product they are seeing (on the reviews) and which also accepts Smartcash as payment, we will motivate people to adopt this cryptocurrency and with that the smart community will grow even more.

Referral program

To generate an exponential growth of new users we will reward the members for each referral that is registered, a personalized link will be generated to send to all their contacts and they will obtain 1 additional ticket for the draw for each successful referral.

Hi Alanis, your proposal sounds good, but using “we will do this” and “we will do that” “that’s the way we will achieve that” brings a lot of speculation, do you have an MVP in which we can have a better understanding how are you going convince people to open a SMARTCASH wallet??? TKS.


#5

I saw that you want to buy the Adobe premiere PRO:

That means that you don’t have that software and you don’t have experience for video editing, so how do you want to deliver high quality videos if you are going to start editing at the time you proposal get funded??? I recommend that you hire a Filmmaker Freelancer on UPWORK for doing the video editing if you want to have the same quality of the video that you provided, also you will need a High quality camera for doing that:

Hi cryptoflashing,
Thaks for your questions, your questions give me a lot of understanding.
Now I understand that use “we” creates speculation, but I try to make understand that the project consider 3 people: Me The developer
staff 1:

and
Staff 2:

I have been working with a Model business canvas from Osterwalder to develop the pre MVP, I will add to the pre-proposal discussion but answering your question: I will run a strong online marketing campaign, and addition to that we will carry out a spectacular draw (raffle) of two flagship smartphones to reach all our desire audience, I will register all interested people in a landing page, once we have all this audience with us I engage them using marketing strategic offering people to buy products with strong discount with smartcash (that its the one of the most important strategic to convince people to open a SMARTCASH wallet and create real transactions), this strategic will allow us to capture a lot of people, achieve transactions and engagement with smartcash.

Actually I have experience with video editing but I don’t have the software, I will can do video editing because it’s fun for me editing, but I will not have time enough to do it (I will be full time developer), in the project I consider work with a person that do that job:

So, I had already considered it, He will do all the editing and recording work with his equipment and will give me the original pro premiere files for later editions or to be able to work with another free lancers in the future.

Tks for you advice, its really help me!.

#10

#11

Hey! thanks a lot, hope see you soon in México city!


#12

I know, and thanks for your comment!


#13

Referrals and too easy to scam, that is worth removing.

Would like to see how you would document and share the weeks of events online, in media, or on a blog. Having some kind of way to disseminate this or a partnership with a media outlet (magazine, newspaper, podcast etc) would have a lot more effect.

Giveaway of something not directly SmartCash is better, too.


#14

Thanks for your notes, they help me a lot, of course they help me to pivot my value proposition
