As many of us know, Social Media is a great way to get the word out about great currencies like Smart Cash.
Twitter has been an incredible source of information for me personally when it comes to Smart Cash and other Cryptocurrencies. Although Twitter is great, I spend more of my time on Instagram.
I would love to see Smart Cash grow a large following on Instagram. Instagram has over 800 million monthly active users and is still growing rapidly. There is a great opportunity for Smart Cash to reach thousands or even tens of thousands via Instagram.
Goal/Who I am: My name is Andy. I currently manage over 30 Instagram accounts and grow targeted followings on each account. I would love to do this for Smart Cash at a fraction of the cost it would be to outsource to someone who isn’t invested and a part of the Smart Cash community. I hold Smart Cash and I’m active in the Smart Cash discord (@CryptoDino) and really believe in this project.
I log into these Instagram accounts and follow, occasionally like, and unfollow based off things like followings of similar/competitor accounts, hashtags, and locations. This eventually generates 1,000-2,000+ new followers per month (the number varies quite a bit based off things like quality of content posted on the account). I’ve grown my personal account (@andydew) to over 45k followers. Feel free to look at my content and check out my interaction and engagement levels.
Here are the following points I am considering proposing. I would love your feedback and constructive criticism.
Initial TimeLine: 3 Months
Amount to be paid in Smart Cash dollar equivalent: $390 ($130/month) - $1,100 ($367/month):$80 per month goes toward software costs, daily time spent monitoring account and generating monthly reports. This also goes toward daily management of the account, posting content, and responding to Direct Messages.
I believe a minimum of $150 ($50/month) is required for paying for content creation for the account. This would allow for weekly posting of quality content. It would be nice to post 5 days per week, and I estimate cost to produce content for this to be $500 ($167/month).
Another option to keep cost low is to pull from the creative works already happening on Steemit and Discord. Some of the logos, banners, infographics, etc could possibly be adapted for Instagram. We could even include the meme of the Steemit Meme contest currently running.
An exciting option that I think could have significant ROI is allocating 500-2,000 Smart per month for giveaways and contests. This has huge potential to get people involved and sharing on Instagram and Facebook. Example: “Tag 2 friends who have asked you about Cryptocurrency and who would also love to support a good cause.” We could give away Smart Cash as a prize and match it 1:1 to donate to a good, relevant cause. I believe something along these lines could be very beneficial for raising awareness of Smart Cash.
*This is where the extra $600 would come in for the proposed budget.
Timeline: 3 months: I will produce a progress report at 3 months in, and the community can decide if the Smart Cash spent is worth the following that is generated from this.
Total hours expected for project completion: 180-360 hours. This number is going to vary quite a bit based on the feedback I receive here. If minimal content creation is needed, and no giveaways are going to be run, the number of hours is closer to the 180 mark over three months.
This can be paid for entirely with Smart Cash with no need to sell any to convert into Dollars.
I’d love everyone’s feedback on this as I am eager to move another step closer to Smart Cash having an established Instagram presence.
