The Steem Foundation and the Ramble Discord proudly bring you another marketing ramble. The first one was a great discussion on what are some of the benefits and best ways to talk about steem. We'll be working on target markets and some user profiles.
Positions for 2020 have been set for the Steem Foundation and we're back to work trying to get some marketing plans in place. As part of that Shadowspub (current chair and head of the Ramble) has offered to host another meeting so we get our plan sorted with input from the community. Hopefully we'll have some things to roll out before too long in January.
The Ramble will take place Sunday December 17 at 3pm Eastern. I believe that's 8pm UTC. It'll happen in the Ramble discord server.
The ramble format is we all gather in a room with a gently moderated conversation by Shadowspub. We hope to walk out of there with a little more helpful user feedback on how we should market Steem and to whom we should market steem.
We hope you can come join us. The last one was a great success and we expect this next one will be too!
