This is post directed to small group of people. So if you're reading it, then most likely you're one of those people :)
It's almost november already and I would like us all to move forward with project.hope and reach another milestone.
Right now I managed to secure 150k SP in delegation (plus I've 20k SP myself), so each publication upvoted by those 2 accounts alone would enjoy some decent reward.
I also managed to secure some extra financial support = 4k STEEM which I powered up on @project.hope and each week I can power down just enough to "keep the ball rolling" (meaning: just enough to pay all "dividents" to delegators supporting our project).
We already have some website and our group is getting stronger with every month.
Reality is that it's all working because I'm "fueling" this process with my own funds and time. And investing time may not be a problem in a long run, but funds will dry out sooner or later (rather sooner than later). Project hope is not financially sustainable right now and my goal is to change it.
How would I like to do that?
Before I explain in details, please allow me to ask you a question.
Imagine that you (as a content creator) keep spending funds on different promotion services. You use steem-bounty; promote your post to trending page on palnet and steemleo; or simply use bidbots to push your post to trending page (risking to be downvoted and losing funds).
Everything with one purpose: attracting some quality traffic and building exposure. After all you want your publication to be viewed by many and hopefully upvoted by some larger stakeholders as well.
We all keep trying to find ways to achieve that. More often than not wasting our resources and receiving very little results.
Imagine for a moment quite similar scenario, however with one huge difference. You would pay ONLY FOR RESULTS achieved. Someone else will do their best to promote your post, bring traffic and bring some large steem stakeholders to upvote your post. And you would only pay small part of received rewards (meaning: you won't pay a dime if results are shit :)
How does it sound? Got your attention already? :) I surely hope so.
I would like to suggest very unique solution:
Before you post your publication and then you share it with us via project hope telegram channel - I would like you to switch to steempeak.com or steemleo.com and set 20% beneficiery to @ph-fund (project hope fund account) while posting your article. It's very easy to do.
Those funds will be then used to allow me to continue supporting our small group of Venezuelans. And their job would be to help me to promote our media channels (@project.hope on steemit, discord, telegram, perhaps twitter and facebook in the future).
I will also upvote with 100% voting power all those publications using project.hope and crypto.piotr account. Currently it's less than 200k SP, but I'm planning to get to 300k by end of this year. Plus several friends (with some decent amount of SP) are upvoting all publications resteemed on project.hope account. So I would say that support to those who set 20% beneficiery will be absolutely worth it for them.
What I'm trying to do is very complex and I don't think anyone else did it so far on Steemit.
Core of project hope will be build on @juanmolina, @fucho80, @jadams2k18, @lanzjoseg (perhaps our team will slowly get bigger). All of them will be helping me to promote our media channels (mostly telegram and discord) and we will be engaging with large stakeholders on steem blockchain and introducing them to our project. Our job will be to increase popularity and reach of our entire group.
At the same time all content creators would only have to focus on posting whatever they planned to post anyway. And they don't have to worry about getting traffic - someone else would do that to them , and would charge them as little as 20% from their rewards.
SHARE YOUR VIEW
Obviously I would like to know what do you guys think about it. Does it make sense? Can you see how this business model could potentially create very sustainable economy, which would allow us all to grow steadily in long term?
Or perhaps you think that it wouldn't work out. I like to hear your opinion.
(Important note: I would recommend posting from steemleo. I'm in touch with 2 large steem stakeholders who are big fans of steemleo and they will be more willing to support content published by our team if it's going to be published while using this front-end).
