Free TON

Contest: Free TON Ambassadors (Stage 1: Ambassadors Selection)

Description:

After Global Community Sub-Governance launch we decided to revive and bring to an end well-known Ambassador contest.

Global Community Sub-Governance invites competent leaders from different countries and regions make their own contribution in Free TON promotion amongst their groups and followers.

For more efficacy contest will be divided into 2 stages:

Stage 1 where Ambassadors will be selected on the basis of their proposed programs;

Stage 2 will evaluate the effectiveness of selected Ambassadors in implementing their programs proposed in Stage 1, as well as the effectiveness of the programs themselves. Stage 2 will be announced after Stage 1 completion.

This contest may be repeated in the future in parallel or after the completion of Stage 2.

Type:

Contest.

Application time:

19.12.2020 (00:00 UTC) – 10.01.2021 (23:59 UTC).

Voting time:

11.01.2021 (00:00 UTC) – 20.01.2021 (23:59 UTC).

Motivation:

At the time of your program preparation rely on your skills, networking and organizational experience to attract as many real users to Free TON community as possible. Take into account that you will have to realize in Stage 2 everything you have planned and proposed in Stage 1.

If you can increase Free TON acceptance, user perception, usage and recognition through marketing and any other methods in different countries and regions you definitely deserve a reward! But don’t forget that all your activities must have an end result in the form of real users attracted to Free TON community.

Requirements for participants:

1. CV : We need summary in PDF format from each candidate with your skills and experience description, bio and contact information, country or region where you plan to implement your program. Add a short essay there why you think you are the best candidate to Ambassador position and why you should be selected.

2. Program action plan and description : Country or region where you plan to implement your program, and language: there are no limits or boundaries for future Ambassadors programs.

3. Program duration : To be determined by the participant (recommendation - no longer than 3 months).

4. KPI : Candidates should also provide additional information describing what exactly they plan to do for Free TON promotion. There are no limits or boundaries for future Ambassadors programs. Each of this planned actions and activities should be accompanied by expected KPI (key performance indicators) as a result of program implementation in Stage 2.

Completing KPI will determine the final reward of each Ambassador.

For a common understanding:

KPI – is a measure of efficiency and effectiveness, not just an action.

KPI – is not only quantity, but quantity plus quality.

Example:

  • I will place advertisement on my channel covering X viewers (there is a mistake – only action described but no end result) ;
  • I will create a group with X subscribers (there is a mistake – there is no method described for checking exact number of new users attracted to Free TON community ) ;
  • I will bring X subscribers to Group Y who will become active community members (sign the DOD, create an account with an active wallet address, register on a forum and/or other official chat/social networks, etc.). These people can be verified as follows: …… (it’s one of the right choices) ;

5. Provide validation method of KPIs: To validate KPI, you can use, for example, user profile information, Google forms and/or questionnaires, access to various analytics systems and/or other audited data to make an appropriate assessment of what these users - Real people who became members of the Free TON community. You can also offer your own transparent method of validation.

Evaluation and winning criteria for Stage 1:

The public and professional reputation of Ambassador is of great importance. This is a measurable factor that helps to determine the ability to achieve the intended objectives as well as the motivation, as inconsistency or poor performance can lead to a reduction or lack of results of a participant in Stage 2.

Past experience, knowledge, characteristics, etc., which demonstrate the ability to perform such tasks.

KPI’s understandable description and forecast, which can help predict the positive result of Free TON promotion and its future potential for reaching users.

Each Ambassador independently determines the possible costs of proposed program and his remuneration calculated in TON Crystal. Therefore, the corresponding final estimate of the cost of your actions and the result of your work will be additionally taken into account.

The number of winners at Stage 1 – 10 Ambassadors. Each of these will receive 500 TON Crystal as a welcome reward.

Hello, thank you very much for this great contest. :+1:

Can you please inform me about:

  • What it approximate date for stage 2 implementation?
  • What mechanism will be used for rewards of selected ambassador in stage 2? They will propose their own budget via submission of stage 2?
  • As far as I know, the total budget of sg at this round is 100 k tons. What do you think about approximate reward that every ambassador will receive?

Moreover, I think 21 days is a bit much time for this contest. No need for time consuming tasks like programming or design, etc. Just as a suggestion.

The start of the implementation of the programs is planned from the beginning of February 2021

Before submitting, I advise you to first discuss it with SubGov members so that everything is within the established rules. I think we will create a separate Telegram group specifically for the participants of this competition

There are many holidays ahead that will fall out of the life of almost every participant :wink:

Given the sub-governnance current budget (100k), it seems that the budget requested by the ambassadors could not be much higher and as a result the quality of their work will be affected and limited.

That’s ok. :+1: :+1:

100K is only part of the budget :wink:
Everything will be fine

So, the budget requested by ambassadors is just proportional to the quality of the work they will do, without any cap. Thank you ! Great news.

I was one of the 20 selected ambassadors in Ambassador SG (which has been suspended due to some reasons you may know). I, with my team, worked hard and prepared a detailed program for Stage 2 implementation.

It is my honor to submit the program for this contest, on behalf of my team:

Of course, we are open for any further improvements and revision,

Hello

My revised submission in PDF
Telegram and Forum: @C_support050

Although in the proposal of stage 1 the budget is optional, however, as http://t.me/Zhytie_Moe (an admin of the SG group) asked us, we revised and resubmitted our proposal in which we have put a section for budget and changed the KPI section a little bit so that now we have focused on bringing new members to the forum and surf (verified by a Google form) instead of a telegram group.

Please ignore my previous submission (Submission #2).

Thank you

There should be three standards of KPIs:

  • Total number of new members (N) joined through implemented program.
  • Number of members (A) who have participated in at least one contest during program.
  • Number of members (W) who have won the prize in at least one contest during program.

Average Active Members: (5N + 8A + 10W)/10

Assessment: An updated report link of every selected Free TON Ambassador should be on the Ambassador Report Sheet created by Jury.

Motivation: We can’t recognise active member of Free TON in very simple way and currently contests are the only effective criteria by through we can zoom the active members of Free TON.

If you think that an active member is only one who participates in contests, you are very much mistaken.
The main task of an Ambassador is to attract as many new members as possible and to do everything possible to get them to become active. And whether they become active or not is up to the members themselves.

proposed formula already included every member but just makes three standards to measure different aspects of contribution to the network.
as my opinion there should be different weightage for different standard of member.
If a member just join Free TON and do nothing but other member join Free TON and involve instantly within network ecosystem should be considered differently.

First, the contest is active, and no one will change the formula in it.

Second, I already wrote above about tying activity to contests.

This idea has a right to life. And I agree with it. But this is a topic for another conversation. Evaluating the specific weight of each member in a given contest is an unrealistic task. Some will start participating instantly, and some need to read a lot of information to understand everything and only then become active. And imagine that 10 Ambassadors will attract, for example, 20,000 new members. How do you evaluate them all on such a parameter and how long might that take?

Therefore:

Ambassador report should have telegram username, forum username and wallet address of invited username or their are some extra requirements.

Is this one ok?
