Marketing Team Update – August 1, 2018

Our vision for the Marketing Team is to be a resource on strategy and content for other WordPress teams. We use our weekly slackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at meeting to focus on updates to the tasks that currently exist in Trello.

We meet in Slack every Wednesday morning at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time as a catch up on our tasks. However, anyone can chat in our Slack channel about anything at any time.


We’ve been working on recommendations from the growth council on content that will improve The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. This week we finalized and submitted page content for how to get help with WordPress to meta.trac.

We are continuing to write and publish case studies. This is what we’ve most recently published. We’d love social shares, too.

We’re Here for You

If your team would like strategic advice or copywriting, please pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” either me (@gidgey on Slack) or @mcdwayne. We’ll set up a 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 and get to work.
