First up many digital marketers are aware of what an ICO is, however many SEO specialists are not very aware of what an ICO is and how to gain exposure to them.
In case you do not know an ICO is an Initial Coin Offering, what this is is similar to a business IPO except it is focussed on the capital raising for a cryptocurrency.
Many ICO operators will want to expose their website to their target market which is cryptocurrency enthusiasts. Capturing the right target audience is important as it may lead to a sale of their token or coin.

- Solution: How this team, platform, and the cryptocurrency will solve the challenge above
- The Market: This basically references how big the market is and usually references good sources to show how huge the money-making potential is.
