How much does it cost to get a “crypto protector” to promote your initial coin offering (ICO) on social networks? The answer may surprise you.
Specific figures are rarely discussed publicly. ICO operators do not like to disclose how much they spend on marketing, while promoters often prefer to postpone price discussions.
But many are aware of the marketing company for ICO, owned by McAfee. And it’s called McAfee Crypto team.
Tweet for you
According to the company’s website, McAfee Crypto team is a full-featured marketing promoter of ICO, which offers support for technical support, web optimization, marketing, and strategic consultations.
While prices for many of the services are not listed, one of them, probably, can cause some surprise.
CUSTOMERS CAN PAY $ 105,000 FOR THE FACT THAT MCAFEE TWEET ABOUT THEIR ICO TO his 811,000 SUBSCRIBERS
-at least some of them are probably bots
This is $ 437 per symbol if you are interested.
“John McAfee’s tweets are by far the most influential in the field of cryptocurrency,” the website says. “Few leaders in the Crypto community can come close to Mr. McAfee’s reach into the heart of the cryptocurrency investor community.”
It’s so cheap
The website also makes a few dubious statements that this is the “least expensive” way to enter the market for a crypto currency project.
“Given Mr. McAfee’s price of $105,000 per tweet, the cost per investor reached is the least costly of any marketing avenue in the Crypto world. Considering only his own followers, the cost per investor reached is $0.13. Considering his reach beyond his own followers, the cost per investor reached is frequently less than a penny. This is orders of magnitude less than any other approach,” the site claims.
Despite the high price, the company states that many projects have expressed interest.
BECAUSE OF THIS, I HAD TO INTRODUCE A REGISTRATION FEE OF $ 750 TO PREVENT OVERLOADING OF APPLICATIONS
Responding to criticism, McAfee denied that he “sold out” and said that he only promotes projects in which he believes.
“They say I sold out ’cause I use my tweets to promote, but the last 200 ICOs that lined up, we rejected 195 and chose 5,” he wrote on Twitter, adding that all proposals are audited. “I only promote what I believe.”
