3. Meeting Notes

A. Last week notes

A reminder to those who have notes pending to please finish them up as soon as possible and let @lmurillom or @meher know in the main #marketing channel when they’re done. We are updating the P2P2 P2 or O2 is the term people use to refer to the Make WordPress blog. It can be found at https://make.wordpress.org/. with notes that have had links that need updating or ones that need copying over from the google doc, including some older items left in the google doc due to Covid-issues. Thanks to everyone for stepping in to help with this. 

A reminder to check the draft notes (link to the doc can be found in this slack thread) that are circulated at the meeting every week. Please review and check your WordPress.org ID is listed on collaborations that you have actively contributed to help the team include everyone. 

We rely on this to update the final notes and to show where we need extra contributors and how we are having an impact on the work requested from other teams.

Rota for drafting notes:

B. Notes group recruitment

Contributor opportunity:

  • Would you like to help source the weekly agenda links and information from other teams? It is a great way to get to know what’s happening in the project and this information is also used for a number of marcomms purposes. We collate information in this rolling google doc (link in this slack thread).
  • We will be moving this to one document per meeting to overcome the problems some of our notetakers have had with which section they are updating. 
  • We will continue to keep all the documents in the Marketing Team drive in one subfolder per year so that we can search them easily as the P2 (blog) search doesn’t always return the right results.

Action:

  • Can someone help create the templates? We also need to overcome the problem of having to redo the formatting and links when items are copied to the P2.

C. GitHub

  • We are currently trialing a solution on GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ which could overcome the accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility) and tech issues some of our contributors have with Google Sheets.
  • There are issues experienced with voice control and speaking browsers, using comments mode, IT experience with spreadsheet amongst contributors, deleting others items/ rows in error, some users finding it hard to have a separate document with instructions/ help and a google sheet, as well as internet tabs for playing any video content, etc. Sometimes the latter is due to bandwidth and hardware issues.
  • Google sheet works better in many ways and it is our predominant tool for things like this. But we had a significant issue with some contributors, including those contributing async, who could not access it.
  • So in the live collaborations during meetings, we have tried to extract items from the spreadsheet into google docs to enable greater involvement and inclusion. This does have a resource implication and operationally, we need to be using a spreadsheet if we can. It also allows better segmenting of items and linking macro updates.

Contributor opportunity:

  • Can someone help with this? Please let us know in the main #marketing slack channel

4. Updates relating to other Make Teams

a) Marketing

5. Learn WordPress social media collaboration task

Led by: @webcommsat 

Task: to draft social media posts for direct usage on channels we use and available to be adapted. Channels: Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

  • We continued to draft social media posts for each of the workshops in this Google document (link can be found in this slack thread) for direct usage on social channels (Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn). 
  • Also drafted posts on the video workshops in the GitHub card for these three channels.
  • Identified any images that exist that could be resized and used, or which could be created if they would add value.
  • Searched on Google and Twitter etc for suitable tags and search phrases on that topic. The main tag we use is #LearnWP
  • Noted any issues on the workshops (check the ones noted in GitHub)

When we overcome the Google Sheets issue, we will return to using spreadsheets for these collaborations. 

Actions:

  • Please continue to add to the documents asynchronously. The Collaboration and links to the document are here on Slack.
  • If you have expertise in one of the workshop topics that are listed in the GitHub card, feel free to choose that to write social media copy.  
  • If you come across a workshop that is particularly suitable for the WordCamps audience, then please also draft a post for this audience in mind, and tag it for potential @WordCamps channels.
  • We want to make sure we are being inclusive so if you have accessibility issues that cannot be resolved, do let a team repTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts. know and they can try and find a way to help.
  • We are currently trialing a solution on GitHub which could overcome the accessibility and Tech issues some of our contributors have with Google Sheets. If you can help with this, please contact @webcommsat or @nalininonstopnewsuk.

6. WordPresss 5.9

  • The About / Help page and text for social media (which will be based on the key sections as they emerge from the main pages) was discussed on Monday in CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. and there will be a check-in for the next two Mondays at the same time at 19:00 UTC.
  • Useful links on the GitHub Marketing to help those shadowing: About Page components sessions in Core (you can follow the discussions from Monday on the Slack – there are useful links in this GitHub issue.

7. Other Business

  • The Team Rep nominations draft post and questions on whether elections across Make will take place the same time next year and to confirm if reps’ terms will be for a year cycle are with Josepha. Once we get the go-ahead, we will publish. 
  • In the meantime, we continue to encourage people to use the draft as a guide for nominations and timetable. Please do let us know if you’re interested and want to chat about it. We also have an open session after the weekly meeting.
  • Thanks to those who commented and reviewed the social media promotions post. We also help posts like this will support the team rep nominations cycle and encourage contributors to get involved.

Wednesday 24 November, 14:00 UTC – Global Marketing Team meeting in the #marketing channel on Slack.

Does your task need some time in the future agenda? Contact @meher and @webcommsat in the #marketing channel on Slack.

➤ How to get started?

We have a number of new contributors shadowing at the moment. So please do let us know if you would like some help.

If you were in the Marketing Team meeting and would like some extra help to get started to contribute to the project, contact @maedahbatool and @yvettesonneveld for information on future Contributors On-boarding events.

Help promote WordPress Meetups each week

Did you know contributors in the Marketing team pull together highlights and stories from online WordPress Meetups every week to help keep the community connected and support organizers?

You can discover what is on each week by following social media channels, and take part in promoting these amazing events held across the world. If you have social media experience and can help with the tasks in this area, join or leave a note asynchronously in the Marketing team meetings and we will help you get started. Tasks include:

  • research on the internet
  • checking links and current social media tags for the meetups and prospective audiences
  • maintaining the admin and tools behind this task area, and continuing to make it simpler and easier
  • checking time conversions (we also list events which are for a wider audience in UTC time so others can join in)
  • marketing/ communications support to organizers and responding to requests, working alongside the Community team
  • short stories and identification of potential ‘Contributor Story’ follow-ups too. We had been working on a series on organizers of WordPress Meetups which could possible run on social and newsletters to help encourage others, especially during pandemic. Some of our pre-pandemic meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. marketing support is on hold until the return to in-person events
  • update surveys and follow-up actions

Can I join for a few months or focus solely to this task area?

We have multiple ways you can get involved, so do come and chat to me (@webcommsat – @ abhanonstopnewsuk on SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/.), @lmurillom, @yvettesonneveld, and @meher who have been co-ordinating this area. We can also pair you up with an existing contributor, where possible, to get started.

You can join the rota on specific tasks for a couple of months or become part of the main group collaborating on this We have a small task group that work on this area every week and prepare items in advance.

During the last two years, we’ve also enjoyed contribution in this area from many contributors, ranging from those who wanted to learn more about a specific aspect to help their own local WordPress Meetups, to those who had specialist skills and were able to share them directly.

Social media examples

We write social media in such a way that the Meetups themselves can use them and people can reshare the posts or the meetup that is of interest to them with their own networks. With more people taking part, we can do more on this. We have reduced some of the outputs in this area due to the effect of the pandemic and as some of our regular contributors have had more limited time. If you would like to join the team on this, do let us know.

LinkedIn – Make WordPress Marketing Team

Facebook – WordPress Events

Twitter – WordPress Events

Some of this content may also be useful for the monthly Meetup newsletters.

WPDiversity events of interest to Meetup organizers

We work alongside the Community team’s WPDiversity group, and have a handful of members that contribute in both areas. Many of the events run by the group can benefit Meetup organizers and aim to encourage and support both them and potential speakers. The group runs workshops for underrepresented community members and for WordPress event organizers to increase diversity in the project.

You can help promote these events by resharing our social media posts and using our special web links for the event bookings. If you would like to help in drafting the posts, come to one of our weekly meetings on Wednesdays (currently 14:00 UTC) on the #marketing channel on the Make WordPress Slack Instance.

As we get details on the finalized events, they are added to the Rolling Tasks board on the Marketing GitHub. We have moved to a quarterly google doc for working on social media posts as some events series span two months.

We also promote links in the weekly Marketing team agenda and share them and the event link for promotions with the WPDiversity team.

Learn WordPress promotions

We are collaborating with the Training team on workshops, meetup events and more to highlight and introduce all the amazing content on and are coming to this free Learn WordPress resource.

The current Learn WordPress marcomms board, Marketing team.

Recap of the tools we use and collaborate on with Learn WordPress

In the longer term, we will bring together meetup promotions tasks and Learn WordPress events onto the single Rolling Tasks card on the Marketing Team’s GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/. But for now, as team members are learning about GitHub and the ways of logging Learn WordPress items ready for promotion and the lead-in times for marketing queries / drafting are being finalized, we are running three separate tasks boards. This also helps us with discussions on graphics and be in sync with other plans in the Training team.

We also are aware that some of our members have difficulty or access issues using Google Sheets. We are continuing to signpost and help with this, if you can join in, let us know.

Once the Marketing GitHub moves into the main WordPress directory, it may be that we keep the Learn WordPress marcomms board on its own to be able to potentially automate or cross-use from the main LearnWordPress GitHub repository. For background for those new to the tools being used, the Training team also use TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing. and spreadsheet trackers, and there are discussions on other tools.

Thanks to @yvettesonneveld, @meher, @lmurillom, and @nalininonstopnewsuk for reviewing this post, and everyone involved in social media research, preparation, editing, posting, and reviewing.
