In episode #597, Eric and Neil discuss how you should market an ICO. Tune in to hear tips on how to approach marketing this new industry.

TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES:

  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: How to Market an ICO
  • [00:33] An ICO is an “Initial Coin Offering”.
  • [00:36] A lot of people are releasing cryptocurrencies.
  • [01:03] If you are a marketing agency, when working with an ICO, you have to “cover your ass”.
  • [01:55] Some of the ICO’s have bad websites.
  • [02:21] They’re using bad animations and insider lingo that doesn’t help to further their business.
  • [02:40] You will do much better if you don’t use insider lingo and instead create a simplistic video explaining your product and its value.
  • [03:10] Keep it simple!
  • [03:17] ICO are now maxing out their Telegram groups (which means they have more than 75,000 people in that group).
  • [03:45] One way to grow your telegram group is to blast your email list. Eric did this when working with Polygram.
  • [04:00] The first email drove people to the Telegram group.
  • [04:15] They also airdropped tokens for free because of referral programs, etc.
  • [04:44] Celebrity endorsements aren’t the best idea. Instead, use crypto-influencers, as they draw in the right type of customer.
  • [05:20] Right now, there are a lot of people writing white papers. You want the write type of people writing these (professors, influencers, etc.).
  • [06:00] You can use Inbound Junctions to create press for your ICO.
  • [06:07] Leverage email lists.
  • [06:10] Promote partnerships with other ICO’s.
  • [06:15] Create a Reddit channel.
  • [06:31] Engagement is so important.
  • [06:50] Have people manage communities and chat rooms.
  • [07:12] Facebook has banned any sales ads referencing cryptocurrency.
  • [07:53] That’s all for today!
