I was thinking of something more alluring and provocative. It will be something that gets your attention and gets it stuck in your mind, and makes you want to check out the URL to see what it is all about. It has to be situated to match an overall frustration that the viewer is experiencing. For instance, the viewer is driving to work on Monday at 8:30a.m., frustrated with the traffic, and frustrated with having to work for money, being away from their kids, family, their laptop at home, then they see your billboard...You are not selling Mintcoin. You are selling freedom. You are selling love. You are selling salvation. There are some other marketing tricks that can be thrown in as well.

The ad would be:



I'm for the more simple approach. People are aware of Bitcoin, so when they see a Mintcoin billboard or other advertisement they will naturally search for it when they get home. People will be happy to buy an interest paying coin on the ground level for pennies compared to $500 Bitcoin.

Whatever we decide to do, the website will have to be more polished before hand.

I'm glad to see you will be doing the work on the marketing. You've helped this coin immensely. Thank you.

I can see you have marketing talents... I'd be willing to donate considering I know more details.  Itd be nice though to have the MintFund up and running so mintcoiners could post various projects & donate to the ones we like with a trusted Mint address.

A major highway billboard in the US would cost at least $3-6k for 1 month.  I think a better use of funds is to pull off a publicity or media stunt, something crazy that gets picked up and goes viral ... you know like the 10,000 bitcoin pizza Smiley

David Latapie, and others, I remember a short while ago, Bill Gates did an AMA on Reddit. Someone asked him what he thought of altcoins in general. His response to the question was that he thought they would be a great way for people in third world countries to handle "Micro Transactions". This has gotten me thinking about the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

They have one area of their foundation that deals with sustainable agricultural development and was one time refereed to as the “Green Revolution”. Here is a link to their web site pertaining to this part of their foundation: http://www.gatesfoundation.org/What-We-Do/Global-Development/Agricultural-Development

Now, I at times can write a good letter if need be, but I'm thinking that if someone from The Mintcoin Fund were to contact Bill Gates and explain the idea behind the Mintcoin Fund as well as Mintcoin, this may be a way to have Bill Gates as well as his Foundation start accepting and even using Mintcoins in their projects. Should something like this happen, even if a year from now, Mintcoin would be the most important altcoin EVER, far exceeding anything Bitcoin or Dogecoin could ever imagine.

Just a thought...opinions openly welcomed....

Really interesting. Not in the immediate future since we need to consolidate first. But I definitely consider it.

My schedule is loaded, but I will see what I can do. I want to start a marketing campaign. Would anyone else be interested in donating to it?

I can't release details because I would not like people from other altcoins stealing my ideas. My background is in marketing.

Provided that the costs are not insane, I will pay for everything out of pocket. Donations to my marketing efforts would be appreciated since when it goes outside of my budget, I can't continue the campaigns. Keep in mind some people spend $100,000 or more a month on marketing. I don't spend that much, but it gives you an idea of how much things can cost. Larger corporations spend millions a month.

Just getting a feeler for now of who may be interested in donating.

+1. I will donate to such an effort.

Me Too! I'm over 40 million coins now, so I will definitely be donating, as I think you guys will make me some "good coin" Wink.

The effort people are putting into this coin is SENSATIONAL!! Well done gents. I look forward to hearing more on the marketing side. I'm invested in quite a few Alt coins, but the ideas and effort on this project seem to be well in advance of most, if not all.

Another task:

If anyone else here visits other forums, be sure to put in a plug for Mintcoin.

i.e. redflagdeals and any others that you can think of. (investment forums, technology forums, computer forums, etc.)

Try to build a good profile and contribute to discussions at the forum to build up a legitimate member profile. Then talk about Mintcoin in a casual way without resorting to spamming the forum or excessive and apparent advertising. Try to be helpful and add value. This takes time and effort, but it is worth it, I promise you that.


more people need to get the word out about MINT. I will do my part

We are approaching 1 week since payouts in MINT were implemented on http://hashco.ws  While I appreciate the new miners who have given us a shot and 'mined' some mint, the uptake isn't quite what I'd hoped for.  In an effort to try and get things going, I received a total of 1,850,000 mint in bounties for implementation.  If we can reach 300Mh/s in new hashrate that gets paid out in mint, and maintain it for at least 5 days, I'll give away all of it to random miners in the form of 3 prizes; 1mil, 600k, 250k.  (personal hashrate will play no bearing on the prize winners, 10Mh/s or 300Kh/s, you'll have the same chance of winning).

I'll post updates here on hashrate status if warranted. 

Happy Mining.
Wow!! What a lovely initiative !!

Prices are getting stable at around 20-21 satoshis at Mintpal. However, the volume in the past 24 hours has gone up by 30 BTC. This is excellent news, as well as the market capitalization exceeding that of Blackcoin.

My home state had a tragic event and are accepting Bitcoin donations on the town website...why not Mintcoin donations?
http://town.darrington.wa.us/Landslide+Donations

I am sorry to hear that this happened :/ That is a great idea, though. Perhaps we can contact them and propose they accept mintcoins: http://town.darrington.wa.us/Contact+us

   
How difficult/expensive would it be for them to implement a Mintcoin payment/donation method directly on their site (I don't know these things, seems like it wouldn't be too much though)? If it would help- and this pertains to all possible charity projects- we could propose to them that we will set a community MINT donation goal, raise it at a different location than their site (e.g. raise it on the Mintcoin Foundation website) and then donate the money to them once we have reached that goal (similar to how doge4water worked). That way they wouldn't be burdened with setting up a new donation/payment method (assuming it is at all a burden, like I said I don't really know..).

Also. I was thinking, once the Mintcoin Foundation is up and running and some projects have been decided on, we could have separate donation addresses for different charity causes- this would allow individual donors to choose directly which project they support with their donations.

Edit: While I'm on topic- please consider donating to the Mintcoin Fund http://www.mintcointalk.com/index.php/topic,415.0.html !

Moolah might be an option. If you look at the Bitcoin link on the darrington site, it is a coinbase link, probably because they would want to get the crypto into fiat asap. Moolah says then can get the crypto to fiat:

Side note: Moolah's page for merchants>faqs doesn't mention Mintcoin.

Sign up, go to account settings and change payout to Mint. By the time this pays out, we'll probably be at 30 Satoshi!

Why not just have them download a wallet and post a big public deposit address on the website/Facebook page? Direct all marketed traffic to that address and voila.

+1. I was over thinking it. I was thinking more in terms of how difficult/costly would it be to set up a mintcoin donation button on their website like the one for bitcoin.

For some projects I still think the idea of setting specific fundraising goals and collecting donations at the mintcoin foundation site, where each cause can have its own address allowing for people to choose between the charities they want to support, and then sending out the raised funds once the goal is met would be useful (for example, for a project which requires a minimum amount of money to be raised before it can work/start). Also, I think there is something psychological about working towards and achieving a preset goal. And if we eventually have multiple charity funds being raised then it would be nice to have them in a centralized location so people can easily see and access them all. Seems like this landslide donation, and other disaster reliefs, would certainly be better implemented in the manner you just outlined because they need the money asap and any little bit will help.
