Okay I guess I’ll step in because otherwise this topic will stay here forever.
People’s time isn’t free and substantial benevolent contribution is not sustainable imo.
I like the idea of having a fixed base + variable bonus depending on performances
→ Now what metric(s) should “performance” depend on ?
I suppose the most straightforward one is “impressions” which can be viewed on twitter analytics each day. (see screenshots below)
However, if we focus only on impressions, what’s the point of having a meme lord that’s native from jarvis, instead of just taking some random dude on twitter with a minimum of 10k follower and pay him ? Surely you would get more impressions per tweet with him, than you would from a person with 200 followers. Right ?
There are elements that can hardly be calculated with accuracy. Quality / creativity / dedication / etc.
How do you measure that ?
I don’t have a solution, I’m just pointing these elements out so that people don’t forget.
→ How much should a meme lord be paid ?
Gitcoin pays between 80-120k per year.
I find it obviously exaggerated and it’s an extreme, but that is just a “reference point” so people get the idea that despite the term, the job isn’t a joke. It takes time, not everybody can do it, nor want to do it.
If I was to be chosen, how much do I personally ask for ?
As a hobby, 15h per week, I’d be ok with 600 jEUR a month as fixed base + XXX jEUR as variable.
Variable bonus can be determined later but the priority for me is to get a validation for the fixed base at least. This can all be re-voted on the next mandate anyway.
Ideally I would be happy to be a full-time “Shitposter” but this is a discussion for later.
If you want to pay only based on impressions (aka fully variable rewards), then we have to agree on how many impressions per dollar ? (and then we come back to the issue of, “why not just pay an influencer then ?” )
I am now going to post my personal statistics since I started talking about Jarvis on twitter.
That gives an idea of the progression curve + what numbers are realistic in terms of expectations. July was my most productive month. Also remember that when the market is bearish, stats go down (LoL).
I wish I could give more insights in details but Twitter Analytics works 1 time out of 2 lately for me. Full of bugs and data not showing etc. Only the main homepage for analytics works.
