The ICON Republic: www.iconrepublic.org
Marketing, Content creation, Raising awareness, ICON Overview
A one stop informative website/portal for the ICON Network that serves as an overview for both hardcore ICONists, and new ICONists.
Update: We have discussed this project in length with the ICON Foundation, and decided to add and incorporate more specific details and categories of the ICON network for developers, investors, entrepreneurs and the community.
We will also showcase more highlights of the ICON ecosystem such as key dapps, and usecases (Broof, VisitMe, MyID).
We will also work with a video production company to create a short video introduction/overview of the ICON network.
We will also aim to bring more traffic to ICON’s existing channels such as its telegram group, twitter, and newsletter.
Finally, we will also be carrying out marketing activities and managing the @ICONRepublic twitter account for exposure once the site is complete.
What is the ONE website that you would point people to if they wanted to learn about ICON?
The most common answer was that there was no single website that holds A-Z information of ICON for potential investors and ICONists. Information is out there, but they remain dispersed across different sites and remain unaccessible which can be confusing for first time investors, both crypto veterans or beginners.
We believe this is a problem as more and more people become interested in ICON. Information needs to be immediately accessible (in a single glance) more so in the field of crypto.
Currently the ICON Foundation website is in need of a rework and doesn’t contain the most up to date information for ICON. Even if it were updated, I believe there are angles that a non official website can tackle that the ICON Foundation couldn’t.
In 2017, I bought the domain www.iconrepublic.org 1 and have held it to this day. As someone who has been covering/analyzing ICON since its inception in 2017 I am knowledgable about ICON, and would like to propose creating www.iconrepublic.org 1.
This will be a website which will be a one stop solution for all those who want to learn and understand ICON. It will be for both hardened crypto investors and for crypto beginners. I believe ICON is a project with immense potential, but there is no website that currently showcases its full potential and initiatives in an accessible (single glance), aesthetically pleasing manner.
I believe that in the current crypto climate, a concise, graphic-heavy (including a video) website can serve to be extremely effective in introducing ICON to beginners and being a useful portal for even seasoned ICONists.
This is not going to be a website where members interact as we believe there are plenty of forums and other social avenues for ICONists.
This is a unique project which aims to be the one stop informative website and portal for all things in the ICON Republic.
We expect the website to be up and running within 2 months.
If we are approved of the grant, we can begin work right away and we expect the website to be completed within 2 months. We also plan to continually update the website and content as ICON makes progress.
Funding Amount Requested
Requested amount (one time fee): $9,500 USD
Estimated time till completion: 2 months from start.
Development : $2500 USD
Project Management : $3000 USD (planning, aggregation, creation, translation of website/content)
Marketing and maintenance : $2500 USD (Including the creation of the ICON video introduction from a video production team/company, management/updates of the website, and social media channels.)
*Design: $1500 USD We were initially planning to work with the ICON Foundation’s design team, but due to unavailability, we will work with a hired designer on a contract basis.
We would like to request a 1 million ICX delegation for the duration that the website is live to maintain servers, make continual updates to the website, and manage/update its social media channels over time.
This is a project which will require a lot of planning, aggregation, creation, and curation of information.
It will be a dynamic informative website which will require constant updates as ICON makes progress. Think of it as an aesthetically pleasing A-Z introduction to ICON (ICON 101) which will involve the creation of a lot of introductory content regarding ICON, and be a curated portal to the best available resources for ICON.
This is a website to which I hope that any ICONist can proudly direct both crypto investors and crypto beginners who are interested in ICON.
