Welcome back everyone, and welcome to any new subscribers!
Again, I've got to start by thanking everyone who has been in touch since our last email. I've had so many kind words of support and its great to hear how genuinely excited and enthusiastic everyone is about our films and how we are trying to change the industry for good. Sure, there is the occasional "FUD" post online (and I relish the opportunity to answer any doubts and explain our project, as some will have seen recently on CoinSchedule) but the vast majority of you all seem to truly "get" what it is we are trying to achieve, and that is truly wonderful and really inspires us all here.
Thanks so much also for all the new orders for 7ype Coins. The orders keep coming in and we're working hard to get them delivered on time, even when we are busy filming, as some of you will have seen by updates on our Twitter feed: http://www.twitter.com/7ypecoin
Some of you will have seen that our new website is now (tentatively) live. This was planned for Monday, but it was pointed out by our Tech team that because we are planning a big marketing push (including sending to mailing lists of ETH investors with hundreds of thousands of potential investors), our webspace may not have handled the large influx of bandwidth. We have essentially now moved to a dedicated server and have spent the last couple of days stress-testing it with the equivalent of DDOS attacks, and its held up admirably.
The new website design is now rolling out, and all pages should be 100% live by the end of tomorrow (Friday). You can see some really nice examples of how simple, modern and clear our design is by checking out the main example pages like:http://7ype.com/ico/whitepaper/http://7ype.com/ico/howtobuy/
Its definitely a far better and more professional design than before, and I'm glad that you guys seem to be liking it from the email and social media messages we've been getting.
Of course the main section everyone will be interested in is the page for the films, and the new white paper and video presentation I keep talking about. It is here where I must apologize for the delay. This is simply because as I mentioned last time we are in the very final stages of negotiating some really big contracts and big name projects, and these negotiations are proving more complex and time consuming than anticipated.
I really wanted these new films to go live on the site, and I thought we would have everything finalised by last Monday, but it turns out that traditional film companies have a little difficulty getting their heads around what we are doing with 7ype, and I don't want to announce a project, only to find out that further down the line they won't honour the purchases that you guys make with your 7ype coins. I'd rather be safe than sorry, so we're taking our time to get everything right before moving forward.
However, that doesn't mean that we are slowing anything down, in fact, just the opposite! These "bigger" films are not critical to the project. As you can see from our new site, we already have 23 feature films added to our slate. I am so excited to be in this position, and to basically have the next 5-10 years of projects already planned and secured, and its all down to the support you all have given us that we have been able to grow so quickly.
So last email I mentioned that we were going to spend a little cash in the last 2 weeks to give one last final "push", to see just how far we can stretch our coin sales. I've negotiated a big marketing campaign with a highly experienced company that specialises in marketing ICOs to the far East (lets go fishing for whales!) and they will start a highly targeted online, email and social media push by the end of tomorrow (hence why we are pushing to get all pages online by then). These guys were instrumental in the monumental successes of SingularDTV, Veritasium and Lunyr ICOs to name just a few.
We also have a more traditional campaign set up for the last 7 days, including some targeted advertising on some sites you guys may frequent. We have a very special video presentation for the last 7 days which will be streaming before Crypto related Youtube videos, and are negotiating to have major placement on some of the biggest crypto sites.
I'll also be sending out a message to all you guys with ways that you all can help in the last week, like sharing certain posts, liking certain comments, commenting on sites and social media etc. This is of course completely optional and I know its not everyone's idea of fun, but if even a small number of you can help us in our final push, that's got to be good for the project, good for the value of your 7ype Coins, and good for us all.
I usually try to not send out email campaigns more than once a week, for fear of annoying people or bombarding with "spam". However, there will be so much news over the next 10 days, please expect multiple 7ype emails from me. I hope you'll be as excited to read all the news as I am to announce it! And for those who aren't already, please follow us on twitter @7ypecoin, as often updates are live there first, before I send out these emails combining multiple points. I read all @ messages and emails, so its great to get real time feedback from you all to keep us going, and ensure we are heading in the right direction.
Hope you all have a great day!
All the best, Samuel Victor (twitter: @samuelvictor @7ypecoin)
