Description

I’m writing up a policy going forward for reimbursements (e.g. per night allowance for lodging).

About participation in such events, going forward :

Suggest to have a discussion thread here in the forum, inviting ideas from all, about how best Polywrap DAO leverage such events, to score maximum mileage.

I guess ETH NYC Jun 23-25 is an event we shouldn’t miss!

I agree having a more formalized event plan sounds like a good idea. This way we can better plan the execution & budget.

I guess, you may have a review of the past events, against the expenses, and achieved (if any) deliverables.

It may be hard to pin-point what’s accomplished in some situations, but perhaps you may define it in terms of KRAs (Key responsibility areas) as well as KPIs ( Key performance indicators).

The marketing review, as part of the last DAO sync, is superficial, at best! Of course, it’s because the whole team is core technical, and may not have bandwidth, nor the required aptitude.

As far as I understand, marketing starts at the get-go, whether we acknowledge it or not. So it’s beneficial to have a go-to-market (GTM) strategy ready, or at least a one year view, on certain vital parameters.

So any event, or marketing plan must be aligned with such an outlook, and to be within the budget allocation boundaries.

Suggest to have a marketing audit, in terms of expense vs KPIs, so it can be a good benchmark for future planning.

This is an inflection point for Polywrap, for having a major release very recently. I guess, there’s no better timing for setting your marketing right.

Once this is in place, you can at least save 100s of thousands per annum, and at best, can truly pave the way for effectively achieving your mission of mass adoption of web3.
