What do you all people think? Is bitcoin so genius that it will grow just from word of mouth, or do we need to do a bigger and better marketing effort?
If forumites contacted their local news media, and the media started to write about bitcoins, more people would learn about it.
I was also thinking about the possibility for having a "marketing division" inside the bitcoin community itself, perhaps someone educated and with experience in the field of marketing would have some ideas as how to brush up the bitcoin concept and make it even more popular. I see weusecoins.com already did a very good effort.
Unfortunately I don't have much time to contribute at this point, but I figure tossing around some ideas is better than nothing.
