About the Project

1. What is the Problem or Opportunity?

Braintrust’s social media following and presence has increased by over 2,000% in the past 4 months. In order to engage more effectively with these audiences, share the Braintrust mission and story, and increase brand awareness, we need help. Additionally, as a user-owned network, the community needs to be more deeply involved in what we produce and do on social media. We need to build a Social Media Ambassador Program to enable the community to take ownership over the Braintrust social media presence, and we need the infrastructure to measure program effectiveness.
Project Evaluation: Ambassador Projects Evaluation Framework Focus Area: Marketing

2. Why now?

Now that the BTRST token is public and grants programs are launching, it’s time to double-down on community-led efforts to further decentralize control on Braintrust. And that includes social media, one of the most common ways that people interact with our brand.

Build a team of dedicated Community Social Media Ambassadors who take ownership over the Braintrust social media presence and create a systemized program for content creation, reactive posting, objection handling, UGC collection, and trend or conversation-jacking on social media.
