Media outreach involves contacting publications and pitching story ideas in an attempt to secure the placement of an article.
An attention-grabbing subject line, personalized introduction, and uniquely developed story are vital components to an effective pitch - journalists are seeking value. In general, it is said that journalists seek newsworthy, relevant articles from credible sources. Attracting these journalists requires strategy as well as a mix of marketing approaches, including media outreach and media relations.
Influencer marketing seeks a specific result, such as a change in thinking or behavior, and influencers are those with the power to influence this change.
Effective influencer marketers have reached (the ability to deliver a message to a large number of people), are credible (trust and authority based on perceived knowledge and expertise), and tend to be effective salespeople (yielding an ability to understand and embrace a particular point of view). When executed well, influencer marketing campaigns multiply the leverages the reach, credibility, and salesmanship of a community to advocate a product to consumers, resulting in increased awareness, improved perception and immediate action.
Highly creative, guerrilla marketing campaigns raise brand awareness among large audiences, but rely on personal, unconventional, and especially involuntary, interactions.
Often a play on the element of surprise, guerilla marketing efforts catch consumers unexpectedly in the course of their day-to-day routines. There are several kinds of guerrilla marketing campaigns, including but not limited to: viral or buzz, stealth, ambient, ambush, projection advertising, astroturfing, grassroots, wild posting or shill, and street.
Community management brings a brand to life online and, at its core, is about relationships and how a brand seizes opportunities to interact with its community in public online spaces.
There are four primary components to community management, including: monitoring, engaging, moderating, and measuring. As your online community manager, we build, grow, and manage a project’s online communities and are responsible for advocating your brand on social networks. Behind the scenes is a real person with a real personality encouraging real interactions. Community management is what happens after and beyond social media publishing, and is part customer service, part listening to the internet, and part being active in discussions that relate to the project. Strong community management campaigns allow a project to manage customer complaints, turn customers into loyal fans, win over influencers and prospective customers, network with other brands and partner with them, and get valuable, raw product feedback.

A go-to-market strategy is an action plan focused on how a project will put offerings into the market to reach market penetration
revenue and profitability expectations, and achieve competitive advantage. Generally narrow in scope, go-to-market strategies in the world of cryptocurrencies tend to focus on initial offerings, exchange listings, and product launches. Essentially a blueprint for executing the plan, a complete go-to-market strategy requires one to consider the following:
Define the target market
Determine the market opportunity
Determine the buyer
Define the value proposition
Set the tokenomics and pricing strategies
Document the distribution strategy and corresponding sales process
Address marketing and promotion needs and budgets
Devise the channel and content strategy
Prepare a product road and complete product life cycle
Identify partners for creating awareness, interest, consideration, purchases, implementations and supporting customers
Roadshows are essential for the effective promotion of a project’s investment propositions to targeted investors.
Even though today’s world is filled with technology, only the roadshow allows for true face-to-face interaction with potential customers. Roadshows jumpstart demand generation efforts, help propel the brand, and spread thought leadership. Meetup.com, specifically, is a great format for reaching investors. If we take a look at 2018 data for global Meetup.com meetups organized for the top seven cryptocurrencies by market cap, we see:
