Q: What are the elements of a successful NFT project? [33]

Earlier this year I was asked to join a generative PFP project called "Broadcasters" as an influencer. BCS marketing director Schlomo Rabinowitz shares with me how they sold out in less than an hour!

Hello there, my friends.

It’s been an incredibly busy week for me, again. I’ve been working on some exciting projects with several of my consulting clients in the realms of NFTs as well as the bottom of the stack in the world of mining. Managing it all is definitely keeping me on my toes, so I’m gad I got a chance to take some time to talk with my friend Schlomo Rabinowitz this week.

Schlomo just came off an amazing stint as Marketing Director of an NFT project called Broadcasters, that sold out in 31 minutes and boasts an active discord community of over 20,000 members.

His interview (available after the break for paid subscribers) goes over what he feels were the essential bits that made this project a success, and what the cornerstones of what worked for their marketing and product plan turned out to be.
