Getting Started on a Project

It’s easy to get involved with marketing projects, even apart from the weekly meetings. We encourage contributors to just hop in and add your thoughts. If you are new to the Marketing Team, you may want to look for 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: cards that need copy created or need to be reviewed.

Let’s Get You Started with Trello

All of our current projects are listed on the Trello board we use for organizing our work. Add yourself to the card and review the corresponding docs attached to the card. When you make changes to a doc, be sure to summarize them in the comments on the Trello Card for consistency with the date.

If the card has a current task lead, feel free to message them in the #marketing channel on Slack to see if there is any more specific direction they can provide to make it easier for you to get started

All cards should always have a task-lead. If it does not and you would like to work on it, mark yourself the Task-Lead in the description and bring it up in the weekly slackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at meeting. Make a comment on the card with the date. People contribute as they have time and it’s easy for a card to be stalled. In fact, the backburner column is a great place to pick up a card that was started but not completed.

If you find yourself editing pre-existing text to a doc, make sure you are in suggestion mode so you do not undo others’ work. If you find some copy that you feel can be improved, feel free to make a suggestion in the doc and/or bring it up at the next meeting. We welcome everyone’s input.
