How Grindez Will Help The Free TON Community

Grindez proposes to develop a marketing campaign for the Free TON community by involving the Grindez community. Grindez will enable workers and recruiters to transact in Ton Crystals and will grow the Free TON community immensely. The real world use-case of being able to get paid in Ton Crystal along with paying workers in Ton Crystals is extremely valuable to the both communities. A number of exposures to Free TON for both current Grindez members and future Grindez members will be present in this proposal below.

What we are going to do

- Distribution of information about contests

Free TON has a problem of spreading information about new contests and attracting new contest participants. Through our partnership, the Free TON project will gain recognition among thousands of designers, copywriters, marketers, and talented professionals from around the world. We will do this by distributing content on either of our social media networks, email newsletters, or on-site banners or notifications to site users. The expansion of how we plan to promote contests for Free TON on Grindez will be described below in stage 2.

- Creating an entry point for professionals

Specialists need a convenient entry point to the Free TON so that they understand how the project works and how they can help here. Grindez introduces a large number of new users every day to Free TON. This will bring attention to the Free TON ecosystem and will enable large amounts of new Free TON community members to transact and complete tasks.

- Distribution of tasks among specialists

Everyday business leaders require working hands to cover specific tasks / or someone needs help - Grindez platform can help to solve it by providing incentives to users through the collaboration of Grindez and Free TON.

- Free TON Blockchain on Grindez

Grindez will enable a great number of users to use the Free TON blockchain in order to conduct business from freelancer to recruiter. This gives recruiters the ability to make payments to freelancers along with purchasing listings directly on the marketplace.

- Add TON Crystal as a payment method

To enable hundreds of thousands of freelancers to receive payments in TON Crystal, across the world, especially in third world countries, where the situation is very bad with payment solutions.

Promote Free TON Content Among Freelancers

We plan to promote contests and “community vacancies”, for people who are interested in cryptocurrency and blockchain and ways to earn money. Grindez will host and participate in Free TON contest promotions through our email newsletter, social media accounts, influencers, and global press

Promotion strategy:

  • Email Marketing
  • Banners / Notifications on Websites
  • Content marketing
  • Contest for freelancers
  • Media promotion

Stage 1-

Develop Free TON Blockchain on Grindez

Grindez will enable a great number of users to use the Free TON blockchain in order to conduct business from freelancer to recruiter. Integration of Free TON blockchain will showcase how users are able to transact in Free TON for direct payments from user to user or a recruiter paying a freelancer. We seek the possibility of integrating our existing referral affiliate program in following stages, if a user refers a friend to Grindez then each invited friend who completed one task on Grindez with Free TON will receive 1 TON Crystal. We will also seek the ability of integrating “cash back” rewards in Free TON Crystals for each task which is completed then each user will receive an amount of TON Crystal.

Stage 2-

Distribution of TON Crystals To Current Users

We would like to distribute 4 TON Crystals to all current users on Grindez. Each user will receive 4 TON crystals to their TON Crystal wallet. By doing an airdrop of crystals to all users, we enable their interest and will prepare them for interacting with Grindez and TON for jobs! Grindez will integrate wallet knowledge features to all current users + each user who signs up and is onboarded. Users will then have the skills and exposure to Free TON when transacting between freelancer and recruiter. With more than 10,000 members at a rate of 4 TON crystals, this will require 100k TON crystals designated to this airdrop to users.

Marketing & Promotion of Free TON

Through our social media channels, email marketing newsletter, and notifications / banners on-site. Grindez will promote the use of Free TON blockchain along with transacting in TON Crystals. Through our referral affiliate program, if a user refers a friend to Grindez then each invited friend who completed one task on the site, we will add 1 token.

Free TON Contest Promotion on Grindez

We plan to create a marketing plan to promote Free TON contests on our platform. We seek the creation of an entire separate page on Grindez dedicated towards educating the talented professionals on how to participate within the Free TON ecosystem. Our mission within this proposal is to bring in more users to Free TON from Grindez. By adding an entire page dedicated towards spreading information about new contests and attracting new contest participants. Additionally, Grindez will dedicate social media posts regarding the Free TON contests linking to both Grindez site and Free TON resources. Grindez seeks new opportunities for setting up contests with TON Crystals for the users on site. Through our partnership, the Free TON project will attract recognition among thousands of designers, developers, marketers, and talented professionals from around the world. We will do this by distributing these content pieces on either of our social media networks, email newsletters, or on-site banners or notifications to site users. We seek the assistance of the Free TON community for ideas on how to implement future Free TON contest marketing material, in order to supply resources for Grindez professionals. According to a forum post, “all current participants benefit from the existing asymmetry of information. But let’s face it - the more the growth of new participants and, accordingly, the competition, the better for the development of FreeTON.” With the help of community consensus, we can educate ALL current and future Grindez users through our new page dedicated towards Free TON and contests. This will lead to a huge increase in Free TON community participation, especially since a large number of current users are based in countries where the pay is not so great, the appreciation of earning cryptocurrency will be far exceeded from the users on Grindez who want to earn some extra income from contests.

Add TON Crystal As A Payment Method

By enabling Free TON Crystals to be paid for freelance tasks will be a real world use-case. Freelancers will have access to a fast and free blockchain with Free TON. This will provide access to over 10,000 members to the Free TON payment system. Each user may have a unique address for their account. Through the exposure to Free TON wallets, users will witness the ease of transacting in Free TON Crystals. Users will see how quick, simple, and almost cost-less the Free TON blockchain is. For a wallet function to be built, 100k will be designated. 70k with integration, development & TON mechanics of roughly 30k crystals designated. The more users we gain, both freelancers and recruiters, the more users transacting in Free TON. This gives recruiters the ability to make payments to freelancers along with purchasing listings directly on the marketplace.

Exclusive Features For Free TON Community Members

Currently transaction fees on Grindez are non-existent. We charge users for certain features on our site. On Grindez homepage, we have 6 featured listings and 4 featured ‘top’ freelancers. By the math below, we will assign 200k ton crystals to the exchange of Free TON community freelancers and freelance listings to be featured on the homepage.

Grindez will offer featured listings to Free TON community members along with featured profile listings for no more than 1 year. This provides benefits to both Grindez and the Free TON community. With a discount given to the Free TON community we propose 200k free TON crystals as it benefits Grindez by having trusted users, established by Free TON communities to be completing freelance tasks for our customers on Grindez. This benefits Free TON by providing exposure to the most important and viewed part of Grindez, the homepage.Our current going rate is $250 / a week for freelancer 6 featured listings and $250 / a week for featured 4 ‘top’ freelancers.

We have found some interesting facts from Harvard which implies that the freelance and gig economy is indeed growing and at an exceptional pace. Almost 90% of business leaders reported talent platforms would be somewhat or very important to their organization’s future competitive advantage. More than 30% of business leaders reported using new talent platforms extensively, while another 30% reported medium usage. Nearly 50% of respondents expected their use of new digital platforms to increase significantly in the future. We plan to utilize these facts by promoting Free TON among community members through our platform and social media channels.

Stage 3-

Grindez bringing in new users

With this being said, the growth of both freelancers seeking online jobs along with business leaders needing a competitive advantage, Grindez is essential towards bringing more active users to the Free TON network through gig work. We propose 4,000 TON Crystals for every 1,000 new users brought to Free TON, capped at 1,000,000 TON Crystals. The growth of Grindez is matched with the immense growth of freelancers and recruiters and Free TON community members.

Hello!
I am the representative of SG Free Ton Analytics & Support
https://support.gov.freeton.org
team@tonanalytics.info
We have sent a request to admin@grindez.com. Please confirm using the corporate email that this Partnership Proposal really belongs to Grindez.
We are preparing an analytical report on your partnership proposal (presentation for the Free TON community). We will be glad if you give us some comments.

  1. When was Grindez created? The domain is 4 months old. Has your company been running for 4 months?

  2. How many people are on the project team? Is the team public or anonymous? Can you provide links to the team members’ Linkedin profiles? (We’ve found your Linkedin.)

  3. Is there a legal entity on whose behalf grindez.com work? If so, please provide the name of the legal entity / a link to the state register or just the country of jurisdiction. We cannot find a legal entity with the name Grindez Inc. in the jurisdiction of the United States.

  4. What is Grindez’s target audience profile? (age, place of residence: predominantly , etc.) How do you engage your audience?

Through our partnership, the Free TON project will gain recognition among thousands of designers, copywriters, marketers, and talented professionals from around the world. We will do this by distributing content on either of our social media networks

As we see Grindez social media activity is minimal. What specific social networks are you talking about?

Promotion strategy:

  • Email Marketing
  • Banners / Notifications on Websites
  • Content marketing
  • Contest for freelancers
  • Media promotion

How big is your customer email base?
What sites do you plan to place ads/banners on?
Very vague wording.

  1. The partnership proposal does not specify the timing of each stage of the partnership proposal implementation.
    Do you have a roadmap for the timing of each stage of the partnership proposal? (at least of the first (technical integration) and second stages?

  2. Which companies do you already have partnership agreements with?

  3. Can we discuss this Partnership Proposal at a joint AMA session with the Free TON community in a telegram voice chat? (in case the community has a request for this)

Thank you!

I love how active the Free TON community is and how quickly everyone moves! Great to see this from the community. Thank you for the report, nn52nn.

I just want to say the majority of my interaction of freelancers and bringing in new users comes from Reddit and Twitter. Basically with reddit, I find subreddits of freelancers and recruiters, example: /r/Jobs4Bitcoins. Through this, I can actively talk to freelancers and recruiters and receive feedback from them. Since I have spent so much time interacting with freelancers and recruiters through Reddit and Twitter, I have built great connection with my users. With our accounts on social media, though the numbers seem low, the engagement is large. Great report; however, a few things are missing. I have all web analytics sites bots who scrape our web analytics on Grindez blocked. I do this by including data in a file on my site in order to block bad bots across the internet. So I am not sure how you pulled any web analytics data, unless it only includes partial amount of web traffic. See the attached file on blocking web 3rd party web analytics and bad bots here. and also here. User data and traffic is more than x5 of in the report, it’s very common for freelance sites to block web scrapers and bots because they try to steal user emails from web pages and more malicious things. But our numbers are great and you will see with our contests and wallet integrations and distribution of crystals and even benefits for the Free TON community will boost the communities a ton.

Hey, team. I have started working on phase 1 already and am working on implementing the wallet functionality for Grindez operating with the Free TON blockchain/wallet and Crystals.

Additionally, I am launching a few other features this week. Yesterday, I launched a feature which makes it easier to freelancers to sort through recruiters requests through categories.

Today, I plan to launch a feature which will completely revamp freelancer listings along with how their listings are presented on the marketplace and on their profiles.

Next, I will be including geo-location for freelancers and their listings. This mean, a freelancer can now enable their location which will show up in the marketplace. This makes it easier for recruiters to find talent across the world. Even better, this will enable for local freelancers and local recruiters to connect for local based jobs. I am sure you can imagine the possibilities of having geo-located listings on the site.

We have roughly 11 new features being built at this moment and the first stage along with Free TON blockchain and wallet are another functionality we are working on. Looking forward to hearing back from the community and am excited to begin this partnership!
