THE BASICS: Hot tips for your round marketing strategy

Whether you’re a big team or a team of one, there are some things you need to know in order to make your Quadratic Funding round a success. In marketing your round, you need to keep two key things top of mind: DONOR (i.e., community) ENGAGEMENT, AND engaging with and supporting OTHER GRANTEES!

John Ellison of ReFi DAO (A project that has been the top recipient of matching funds for at least the last two Climate Solutions rounds:

“It’s also about generosity: Be sure to give to other projects and also retweet content.”


Your goal for the round is to attract as many people as possible to participate in and donate to your round. You can do this through:

  1. Leveraging your most reliable communications channels. Twitter? Absolutely. Lens? Why not? Email? No brainer. Bonus: Do a bit of analytics research to learn where you usually get the most traction with your community and go to town.

  2. Asking for community support to amplify your messages. What’s better than a couple of RTs? A community of people spreading the word and inviting their frens to donate! The trick is to make it simple. We recommend creating and circulating a doc or an email outlining how your community can amplify your message. Get detailed, create a helpful launch doc like this one by Giveth that gives people a clear picture of what and how they should be communicating.
