Some of the most common ways that most ICOs/projects/tokens and crypto related businesses succeed:
- Announcing the ICO on bitcointalk.org. As an author previously mentioned, almost every ICO in the world has an announcement here. This method is both time wasting and counter productive. The first reason is that no real investor is going to consider putting real capital into a project that is only listed on bitcointalk.org. The format is difficult to read, lacks transparency and shows that the ICO isn’t willing to spend on proper marketing for their Initial Coin Offering.
This reflects poorly on the project (if this is the only place the announcement is found) I disagree with the notion mentioned earlier that this method reaches an ICO’s target audience.
It opens the the project up to criticism from commenters on the thread who aren’t real investors, lack capital and complain about anything and everything. Your team’s time is much better spent marketing to your target audience than defending yourself in a forum all day. Bush League Move.
What Successful Companies Do:
- Announcement of ICO on CryptoClarified, Coindesk, or another news source that specializes is niche marketing. CryptoClarified successfully promoted campaigns for CryptoCelebrities, CryptoCountries, World Of Ether, Ledger, Betchain and others.
- Bounty campaigns — These are campaigns that allow the audience to do some tasks for the token the ICO is creating. This can be a mixture of tasks from translations, signatures on forums, sharing on social media and blogging for them. Successful projects have reached out to social media influencers, but choosing the right ones to partner with is paramount.
Follower count is less meaningful than influence, follower trust, reputation and business connections. Partnering with an influencer that has over 100K followers that posts dank memes all day can be less than someone respected, who’s followers value their opinion and has a solid track record of only promoting quality projects.

3. Paying for ads: Placing banner and text ad by adwords, Facebook, Twitter and crypto news websites. This has changed with the banning of crypto ads on Facebook and Instagram, but you can still do it on LinkedIn, Twitter and google ads.
CryptoClarified mentioned earlier has a work around for Facebook Ads. They can get campaigns up and running on Facebook which is by far the most lucrative platform for your campaign. Twitter can be good, but their targeting can’t compete with Facebook. So not only will your Ad will be less effective, it will aslo cost more. Google Ads can work well with proper targeting.
4. Reviews / listings of ICO announcement websites — As the sphere grows there are more and more websites “rating” ICOs for potential investors. There are more and more by the day, usually these sites will only list your ICO for a price, but there are some free ones. Listing on as many as possible will allow your ICO to get traffic from other websites. An example of two are ICO Rating and CryptoClarified
5. PR / events — Connecting with news outlets who follow crypto, such as Coindesk, CryptoClarified or Cointelegraph and paying them to write about your ICO is one way to get great backlinks and also legitimize your ICO (As new ICOs have a stigma that they are scams, this is not always the case). Attending events to spread and connect with people in the crypto world. A face to face meeting is always better than a message over a screen. It also shows you back your project.
6. Endorsements — Get endorsed from people who are respected in the crypto world, such as a youtube or getting someone as an advisor.
Having a great developer, team and project in place are all extremely important. Assuming those is already in place (we’re not talking about projects destined for failure) what good is an awesome project if no one gets to see it?
This is where the importance of marketing your product, ICO, token, project game or company comes in. This is often what separates the “men from the boys” (or women from girls) We are equal opportunity here.. Often times the difference between a massively successful campaign and a silent fart in the wind often depends on marketing and promotion.

Please do not take this personally if your project is not approved. It does not mean that the project doesn’t have potential, but we do have a responsibility to our readers and subscribers.
This also does not mean that any project that is approved, or that we do decide to cover is destined for success. Anything can happen in cryptocurrency, but we do our best to cover projects that do have potential and that we believe would be of benefit to our readers.
It is important to understand that not every project that is approved, or that we do decide to cover is destined for success. Past success with other campaigns does not guarantee success with your campaign. We do our best to cover projects that do have potential and that we believe would be of benefit to our readers.
For Google, Facebook and Twitter Paid promotional services we require images that have as little text as possible. We agree to carry out any services in which we are paid, but cannot guarantee that all Facebook campaigns will be approved. For campaigns that are not approved, we will continue to edit until approved. Due to Facebook’s recent ban on cryptocurrency related promoted content, it may take longer than expected. For Ads that are unable to run do to banner image sent, article title or for any other reason, you will not lose the 1.5 ETH paid. It can be applied toward a second article or any other service.

Accuracy of Information:

The price of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are highly volatile. It is common for prices to increase or decrease by over 20–100% in some coins in a single day. Although this could mean the potential for huge profits, this also means the potential for huge losses. The same goes for CryptoCollectible games which can be wildly speculative. DO NOT INVEST ALL YOUR MONEY IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES. Only invest money which you are willing to lose.
Cryptocurrency trading may not be suitable for all users of this website. Anyone looking to invest in cryptocurrencies should consult a fully qualified independent professional financial advisor.
