What will be the biggest and most impactful way we grow our DAUs (daily active users) over the next 3 months July 15th - September 30th?

Potential answers can be different marketing channels (SEO, FB/twitter ads), growth hacks (M$ referral bonuses), celebrity endorsements, you name it! Sussing out the causality of precisely which mechanism led to growth may not always be so clear. I'll try to resolve according to my best judgment.

I will also, on the margin, prefer specific helpful answers (e.g. start a FB marketing campaign targeting ACX readers who recently graduated from MIT), over more correct but vaguer ones (e.g. "ads").

Sponsored tournaments (especially the Salem Center tournament) and viral markets were the biggest growth vectors among the answers submitted below.

I'd say the actual biggest growth vector for Manifold in Q3 was re-engaging users who previously churned through a combination of core platform improvements (better performance, fewer bugs (esp on iOS), betting streaks, new homepage, etc.) and email outreach campaigns (weekly interesting markets email, etc.).

@Sinclair's answer would seem to cover this, but then again: https://manifold.markets/Duncan/among-current-heads-of-state-who-wi

@SG interesting idea, any way to define and target groups more specifically and make it very seamless. People have strong opinions on diff topics: sports, stocks, politics, etc. They congregate online on certain sites, in group messages, etc. They think they know the future, they talk smack to their friends, and now they can bet with a few clicks. For example, I have friends in iMessage where we talk stocks, or economy and would be cool if I could just initiate a bet when they something seemingly probabilistically ludicrous to me. Target vertical by vertical, built a plugins and integrations into where people communicate, run a growth hack strategy to get certain users. Rinse, repeat, expand.

@SG Especially if used in conjunction with streamers' prediction system, I can immagine it being a thing

Well I don't personally believe this will be the case, it is a possibility. Additionally I think having this as an option to bet on can provide a lot of valuable information. If a lot of people start betting on this option then it means we need to change something about our product, as opposed to making changes to our growth strategy.
