[Proposal Idea] Introduce Zen and Blockchain to Photography Community


#1

This is an opportunity to reach out to a community, many of whom get excited about innovations and ways to be more independent. It’s outside of the normal groups who are aware of blockchain, yet largely open to it based on my informal research.

Some links to see what I do:
My small business website showing my photographic specialty of 360º photography:
www.panoramanetwork.com

I’m a known trainer for my area of expertise and normally good at making complicated topics easier to digest:

I have contributed to all three of the outlets below that I am proposing to sponsor, for example:
https://photofocus.com/2016/08/30/simple-shooting-strategy-for-high-dynamic-range/

This is an episode of This Week in Photo where we even touched on blockchain:

Main ideas to promote to photographers:

Awareness through standard banner and in-show advertising. More importantly, education about crypto currency and blockchain solutions. This is through written, video, and audio content as well as in-person conference presentations and events. The education content will be largely by me, and other authors who I can get interested (many authors are looking for article ideas).

I have experience in promoting photography software through helping people learn how to use it, this is very similar.

Budgets coming for the following:

Photofocus sponsorship (www.photofocus.com)
Advertising info: https://photofocus.com/advertise/

  • Banners
  • Articles about crypto currency and blockchain solutions
  • Podcast sponsor
  • A great deal of social media

This Week in Photo sponsorship (www.thisweekinphoto.com)
Advertising info link: https://thisweekinphoto.com/sponsorship/

  • Recorded or live read commercials in main podcast
  • Banners
  • Episodes discussing blockchain related to photography
  • A great deal of social media

"Out of Chicago" annual conference sponsorship (http://www.outofchicago.com/summer/):

  • Banners, mentions
  • One or two one-hour talks (by me) about how blockchain can benefit photographers and the business of photography
  • Table in expo area (this is like a small trade show) to educate, setup wallets, etc.
  • Giveaways
  • Budget permitting: Small small/quick contests (ie so that there can be many winners) to win ZEN
  • Budget permitting: ZEN sponsored happy hour where drinks are very cheap if you pay in ZEN (sponsorship covers the difference in drink prices. Or a small entry fee if paid in ZEN with drink(s) included.
  • A great deal of social media, and many photographers attending will pass on what they learn.
    • Extra goal: To get a photo retailer who is exhibiting at this conference to accept ZEN as payment
