Bitclave team compare three of the biggest strategies out there: organic search marketing, bounties and paid search advertising.
- Very good blog posts bounty campaign – more than 200 artilcles.
- A lot of traffic from organic search (because of backlinks from blogs and paid articles).
- Turn on paid traffic when they need it (as seen on the graph).
BITCLAVE ACTIVE SEARCH ECOSYSTEM IS A PLATFORM THAT ENABLES DIRECT CUSTOMER-TO-BUSINESS INTERACTIONS WITH NO NEED FOR INTERMEDIARIES.
Online Advertising – a market worth more than 500 billion dollars. Businesses today contend with myriad middlemen across the advertising stack.
The dominant advertising companies (e.g., Google, Amazon, Facebook) charge exorbitant fees to reach users. Businesses receive no guarantee their ads will convert to sales, or even that their ad traffic is genuine—in fact, nearly 40 percent of all ad traffic is generated by bots (Incapsula, “Bot Traffic Report 2016”), essentially defeating the purpose of advertising itself.
BitClave’s decentralized solution enables companies big and small to participate in a common ecosystem. The innovative search technology enables sellers to pay directly for outcomes, optimizing marketing spend for results; users and other data providers are paid on the data’s value, measured by conversions (not clicks); and consumers gain access to monetary incentives and lower-cost goods while gaining control over their personal information.
Right idea in a Big Market. But is very difficult very expensive to compete with large companies.
