This is a modification of an earlier project that I closed without awarding as the bidders were misunderstanding our focus. I will explain it in far greater detail here, so even if you have bid on the earlier project, please read this brief.
We need to perform an extensive specifically targeted social media outreach campaign for a soon-to-debut website. The details will ONLY be divulged to the winning bidder upon signing of a comprehensive Non-Disclosure Agreement. So don't ask unless you have already won the bid.
The website is in the Arts & Crafts category. It is an e-commerce site where individual online artists/crafters place their digital works for sale. There are seven different categories within the website, each representing a different type of art/craft. There are literally thousands of artists/crafters who are currently utilizing a variety of different sites to market their digital works. The goal of this campaign is to notify them AND ONLY THEM of the SIGNIFICANT AND COMPLETELY UNIQUE advantages that this new site offers to them in order to solicit their placement onto the site of their digital works for sale to the general online public.
The project is very challenging as there are many online forums, discussion groups, and other places where these artists/crafters congregate (as well as the usual social networks) and getting a message to them in a way that is not perceived as SPAMMY or UNWANTED is next to impossible.
That is why we will require an in-depth proposal of exactly how you intend to break through these barriers and present our message to the widest possible number of artists/crafters in a way which does NOT sully the reputation of the site as ethical and friendly.
Note that this project is to be dedicated EXCLUSIVELY TO ARTISTS/CRAFTERS WITH DIGITAL WORKS FOR SALE. We are not interested at this time in reaching the general online purchasing population.
SO WE NEED TO MESSAGE ESTABLISHED VENDORS ONLY. WE DO NOT WANT TO WASTE TIME AND ENERGY ON ANYONE ELSE!
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM IN:
OR SEO IN ANY MANNER WHATSOEVER. THAT'S RIGHT. NO SEO!
Therefore the tasks at hand for this project are straightforward:
1. Locate the specific individuals who are offering significant volumes of digital works on the various sites in this market niche. Some may have contact forms on their own websites, others will frequent crafting forums, others will have email addresses which are discoverable. It is YOUR job to find and qualify these individuals.
2. Figure out SOME WAY of getting a message through to them. This will be very challenging as many of these individuals are usually not open to receiving "marketing solicitations" and may find them intrusive or even offensive. If they have contact forms or email addresses available they will generally use them only for crafting questions and may find a "hey, why don't you come over to our site" message as an unacceptable use of their contact.
3. Deliver the message that our site is now open for business and we can offer THREE SPECIFIC ADVANTAGES from any other site on the internet which will maximize their profits to a degree that is unmatched ANYWHERE.
THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT PROJECT. DO NOT BID UNLESS YOU HAVE EXTENSIVE SOCIAL MEDIA MESSAGING AND SALES/MARKETING LEAD GENERATION AND QUALIFICATION EXPERIENCE AND AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF TIME TO DEDICATE TO IT. THIS IS NOT A PROJECT THAT CAN BE AUTOMATED. IT IS ALL MANUAL AND REPRESENTS A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF WORK. THE DEADLINE IS TWO WEEKS FROM AWARDING, NO EXTENSIONS POSSIBLE.
If this project is successful then we may increase the effort as much as ten times in a subsequent [url removed, login to view] project open for bidding, with an according increase in budget.
