ups do need a marketer. Marketing doesn’t mean to use Ads with huge
money, should mean it makes you don’t need to sale or advertise your
tend not to accept the company’s marketing. They hate the web ads which
is made by some company. The information is spreading not from company,
but from people on social today. The purpose of marketing will change
to that people approve your service.Marketing
Policy in ALIS is “Transfer of Trust Marketing(ToT)”. The trust will
move from A to B with network. He aimed to move some people’s trust
about ALIS to another people who is in same community cluster. For
example, “You want to go to the restaurant which is recommended by your
friend who knows only excellent restaurant”, “The person who is
introduced by high level business person also looks high performance”The
blogger who are interested in ALIS introduced ALIS to their community,
and changed the people who though ALIS is scam to people who believe in
ALIS.He set up the “number of slack members” as a KPI which is mostly related to the raised amount of fund in ICO.As a result, the number of community members are grown up rapidly. The number of Slack community member is 2700, the number of Twitter is 4300.Coinexchange.io listed ALIS token on their exchange. Yasu is talking with several exchanges continuously.He
introduced the roadmap of ALIS. They will release MVP which will test
the service design on December, and will relase β version on April,
