The International Association for Trusted Blockchain Applications offers developers and users of DLT a global forum to interact with regulators and policymakers and bring blockchain technology to the next stage of wider implementation. Initiated by the European Commission and launched in April 2019, the association has a membership base of around 170 organizations, from start-ups to key industry players in various sectors. The association is additionally supported by the Academic Advisory Body and the Governmental Advisory Body, including organizations like World Food Program, the World Bank, and the United Nations.
The EDGEncy team is responsible for forming the digital identity of INATBA, creating a structural approach to acquiring and engaging users across channels. INATBA has a strong connection within the European Government and a network of high-profile experts in the blockchain industry. EDGEncy got on board to help the concepts receive a concrete digital shape, spread awareness, and create a structural approach to acquiring and engaging users across channels.
At the beginning of the journey, the main task was to audit existing digital channels, understand the needs of INATBA members, and come up with a solution for creating an internal INATBA member portal - an internal platform for existing INATBA members. The portal would bring direct value to the members by offering exclusive content, networking opportunities and a platform to share publications, research, news and events.
INATBA members can be divided into two groups:
INATBA membership is mainly based on corporate (Large, Medium, Small, Micro) and trade associations membership (not for profit). Members have to place their candidature for becoming members of INATBA, a membership committee is evaluating and approving the membership.
INATBA strives to bring both high-profile academics and government representatives to participate in the dialogue around blockchain. It has two boards - the Governmental Advisory body and Academic Advisory Body. Joining these bodies is based on a solicitation letter.
INATBA unites members from significantly different worlds (corporations and startups, governmental representatives, and academics) with the goal of co-creating regulation around blockchain and fostering innovation in DLT. The main challenge we have faced was creating a user journey that would resonate with all parties, would have an ease of use for all representatives, and would encourage interaction and engagement among all parties. After a careful analysis of the structure, our team has created UX & UI designs for the internal member portal. The functionality of the portal has included a networking platform for users with different visibility and accessibility rights, an interactive showcase of all members, and a directory of publications, events, news, and video recordings. Given the high sensitivity of the information and a large number of users, we have spent a crucial amount of time establishing functionality and developing custom-made solutions. As a result, INATBA members were able to conveniently and securely use the platform to interact and collaborate with other parties, add publications, and lead the dialogue alongside blockchain regulations.
We have used Google Ads campaigns with a monthly ad budget of up to 10K EUR to reach the estimated KPIs. The goal of the campaign was to attract the highest payed members, enterprise companies. The membership fee for such clients is €15 000 yearly.
On average each month, we acquired 1-4 enterprise clients through our Google Ads efforts. The primary goal of our Google Ads campaign was to encourage website visitors to fill out a form. Following this step, INATBA team members would conduct qualification calls and work towards closing the leads.
Prior to our collaboration, INATBA already had a large social media presence and large amount of content on the website. However, these efforts did not follow a clear structure and were fragmented. Hence, it wasn't feasible for the company to achieve clear measurable results across its channels. EDGEncy team was brought in to help structure INATBA's social media & SEO activities.
We have created social media and SEO strategies to:
