As it fairly comes from its name, DeepDAO is all about decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), communities with no centralized authority that have become super-popular, over the past year. The service lists thousands of DAOs, millions of governance token holders and active voters, and proposal creators.

The portal provides users with DAO health metrics, which provide insight into the current DAO state, similar organizations analysis, and predictions. For that, the project uses both rule-based queries and machine-learning algorithms.

Career sites have always been a great way to see where the industry is heading and even a source of news leads, as both startups and tech giants post job ads, thus, unintentionally revealing their development plans.

We live and work in an interconnected world and the Web3 revolution is about to make individuals and businesses get even more stirred up together. Under such circumstances, building a successful company, without constantly being in touch with your customers, partners, and, of course, competitors, becomes worse than impossible — it becomes unproductive.
That is why you probably shouldn’t underestimate the raw and unstoppable power of word of mouth. Being in constant contact with the community makes you more aware of the current issues, practices, and approaches in the industry, get relevant knowledge and, thus, faster identify an opportunity.
Some would say that talent networks like LinkedIn “are so Web2” but successful business development requires reaching out to potential prospects where it is more convenient for them. And here, some LinkedIn features like Sales Navigator might be extremely useful when it comes to discovering your leads organically.
Professional networking is a backbone of a successful business and provides a legit shortcut to exclusive information, valuable and unbiased feedback, and, eventually, new profitable deals. 35% of respondents surveyed by LinkedIn claimed that a casual in-mail conversation had led to a new business opportunity. Not bad for small talk, huh?
It’s important to keep in mind that the Web3 revolution does not mean the elimination of old marketing channels and experiences. Rather, it expands and transforms the possibilities of Web2 and lets you implement new approaches and discover ways that work. In Web3, go-to-market strategies often rely on platform distribution, referrals, airdrops, partnerships with communities, and many other things. The aforementioned projects provide marketers with complex and sophisticated tools for engaging prospects and analysis.
