The Bitcoin Catalog duplicates the simplicity of the Yellow Pages for the global Bitcoin community. Launched in May 2013 by Canadian Antony Ferland; The Bitcoin Catalog is the world’s first printed and free digital PDF Bitcoin Catalog featuring over 300 Bitcoin merchants, services and businesses from around the globe. The free PDF version of the First Edition, which featured over 300 Bitcoin merchants, was downloaded and viewed more than 5000 times in the first three months after launch. Demonstrating the demand for its unique overview of the Bitcoin landscape; The Bitcoin Catalog website has served more than 25,000 unique hits to the free online version since launching on May 5, 2013.
The Second Edition will be released this November and The Bitcoin Catalog is on track to triple the traffic and downloads of the First Edition. Advertisements can be purchased by Bitcoin merchants and businesses worldwide until October 19th 2013. Bitcoin businesses, merchants and projects can get listed in the next edition for just $5 or equivalent in Bitcoin. The full box package which includes a description of Bitcoin businesses and their logo, is available for just $30 or Bitcoin equivalent. For $150 Bitcoin businesses will get massive exposure through a banner ad on the front page of The Bitcoin Catalog’s website and prominent placement in the sponsor’s section of the Catalog itself. The Catalog is also selling a limited number of full page ads for the Second Edition and payment for these is in Bitcoin only.
To ensure the Bitcoin businesses which are featured in The Bitcoin Catalog get as much exposure as possible, the Catalog is marketing to both new Bitcoin users and established Bitcoiners in a variety of ways. The “What is Bitcoin” page on the Catalog’s website is being aggressively marketed via Facebook ads, Twitter, Google Adwords and through the expertise of the Catalog’s in-house SEO specialist. To further spread the word in the Bitcoin space, the Catalog’s partners – Bitcoin cost-per-click network Anonymous Ads and Bitcoin Press Release service Bitcoin PR Buzz – are actively engaged in spreading the word through the Bitcoin ecosystem. In an effort to attract more people into the Bitcoin community, the Catalog has partnered with The Bitcoin Education Project, which is also actively involved in marketing Bitcoin.
The Catalog itself has a modern design and readers can flick through four main categories: Bitcoin related, goods, services and local.
In addition to the Catalog’s marketing campaigns, The Bitcoin Catalog will also continue their very popular Bitcoin giveaway in their next issue.
With BitPay recently announcing they are serving over 10 000 Bitcoin online businesses worldwide, the unprecedented concept of a print and digital Bitcoin Catalog is more necessary than ever. With The Bitcoin Catalog, Bitcoin businesses, projects and merchants across the globe can reach their target market of Bitcoin enthusiasts with ease.
