Please understand our mission. We reiterate it every week. Our vision for the Marketing Team is to be the go-to resource on strategy and content for other WordPress teams. Every TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the team uses for example: card should reinforce this goal in some way.

We are very successful writing copy, creating video, and producing case studies. 

We’ve done an awful lot of things as a team and we love our  “done” column in Trello! Each card should have a clearly defined “done = this.” 

For now, our “done” is one of three things:

  • Publish on Marketing Blog.
  • Upload to
  • Hand off Google Doc to another team.

If you feel your card lies outside of these parameters, we may approve it. However, as our team grows, it’s important to keep the mission. There are over 15 Make WordPress Teams now and we’re proud of the way we fit in and thrive in the ecosystem.
