For our general operating costs (PR company, articles, interviews, graphics/videos, staff payments) we are requesting a total of 370000SYS.

What’s Next for the Syscoin Marketing Team?

In addition to the ongoing SMT work such as social media management, business development, weekly or bi-weekly updates etc, our main point of focus is adoption of the Syscoin Bridge; here are some of the ways we are working with our PR agency to achieve our goals.

Syscoin Bridge

We are planning a significant marketing exercise in August with our PR company to promote Syscoin Bridge.

Expand digital footprint

Now that the digital footprint of Syscoin is firmly established (Google, Syscoin, Click news, etc) we plan to maintain and expand it with relevant articles and thought-leader pieces that highlight Syscoin, such as this [CoinTelegraph](https://cointelegraph.com/news/the-future-of-crypto-the-latest-cryptography-advances-set-to-change-blockchain) or [Crypto Briefing](https://cryptobriefing.com/looking-beyond-ethereum-crypto-interoperability-is-key/) article. We will also keep an Adwords campaign running to strengthen the marketing activities. This is the basic foundation we need to maintain for Syscoin Ethereum Bridge and Syscoin Platform itself to remain prominent on the news sites.

Business development, direct outreach

To further promote adoption we will continue reaching out to ERC-20 projects, blockchain consultancy and development companies, and other companies that would benefit from using the bridge or Syscoin Platform. As mentioned above, we have now formed a dedicated team for this and we provide them with the tools they need to succeed; such as Bridge and Syscoin Platform sales decks, demo videos showing the bridge in-use with the ERC-20 projects that we are reaching out to, a dynamic fee table to show the fee savings, and much more. We will also share these tools with the rest of the community.


We are continuing with the bounty campaign to incentivise ERC-20 projects and blockchain development companies and individual developers to use the bridge and share their experience with us.


We have a strong focus on education; we have partnered up with Blockgeeks a leading blockchain education platform, and we will educate their users on the Bridge and other Syscoin Platform features using webinars and written guides, [our first webinar was a great success already](https://courses.blockgeeks.com/course/introduction-to-syscoin-platform-interoperability-scalability/)!

Events and Working Groups

As partners of [2Tokens](https://www.2tokens.org/) and [ITSA](https://itsa.global/) we are joining working groups and events on a regular basis. We will also resume hosting live events with some of our partners when it is possible to do so.

Budget for July

For the coming round of Masternode funding, we are requesting 370000 SYS.

High level overview of SMT monthly expenses:

Item Cost ($)
PR and News outlet push including PR agency 4000
Ongoing SDMT costs 1000
Google adwords 500
Learning platforms modules and promotion 1000
Demo videos and sales decks 1000
SMT Staff and Mod compensation 7000
Business development team compensation 2000
TOTAL 16500

As always, we will endeavour to pay our suppliers in Syscoin and will prioritise external cost above staff compensation if needed.
