Alpha and/or QuantConnect Promotions and Ads

Hi All,

does anybody have an experience with the promotion of own Alphas and/or QuantConnect - i.E. via Social Media, Facebook, AdWords etc. ?  Would it make some conversions? What do you think? 

Regards, Mykola

Hi Mykola! Once you submit an alpha, if it matches a funds risk profile and return expectations they'll generally need between 3 to 24 months to see its live track record before licensing. The clients who are able to harness the alphas are multi-factor portfolio companies managing over $500M AUM with internal quant departments who can analyze and license the strategies. 

There's no harm in sharing your Alpha profile on LinkedIn, but I wouldn't recommend advertising or promoting it. The potential clients are not browsing facebook. We have created an API for browsing and licensing the strategies - the market page is mostly for the Alpha Authors. There are a number of other sites targeting retail users with promotional activities like that but we wanted to take a more professional approach to the licensing. Many of those retail sites attract high-risk strategies which are not suitable for professional capital.
