Hello, I have a simple proposal for promoted tweets. What do you think of it?
Sidenote before we get started: Organically every tweet gets tweeted a minimum of 3x over 6 months.
When brands publish with us, they can also promote the tweet from Hacker Noon. This is the form:
30% amount brand spends goes toward the budget to promote the tweet from the Hacker Noon account. These promoted tweets only say hacker noon headlines and link to hacker noon (brand as author) content.
Now the I suggest the profit margin (70%) be reinvested in promoted tweets to amplify the reach of the best stories on Hacker Noon.
This would be a break even program for Hackernoon to increase the size of its customer base, the reach of our story distribution, and the overall size of our community.
More money spent on promoted tweets = the faster our community grows. It also will help amplify the readership of the best stuff. It’ll feel good to see tweets with our best stories being heavily heavily RT/replied with new readers.
