Marketing Team Update – February 14, 2018

Our vision for the Marketing Team is to be the go-to resource on strategy and content for other WordPress teams  — that means you.

Today’s Meeting

The Marketing team used today’s slack meeting to focused on updates to the tasks that exist in Trello currently. It’s our intention to move away from the working meeting and move toward this update model. So big shoutout to @mcdwayne for that suggestion.

It’s good to remember that everyone that contributes on this team are volunteers. We discussed our in-progress tasks including WCUS Gutenberg User Testing Testimonial Videos, revisions to the Contributor Day Handbook, and more.

Also of note is ensuring the Marketing Slack Channel is manned during Contributor Days. @bridgetwillard is reaching out to camps individually and keeping track on a Google Sheet. WC Bangkok is this weekend and @bridgetwillard will be on Slack from 6:30pm to 8:30 PST. A volunteer is needed to cover the WC Prague time period. That Google Sheet is here.

Titles and Meta Descriptions – Request from Meta

Of note is we also were asked to work with Meta on an SEO project which began last night. See Trello for more details.

Feel free to reach out to me (@gidgey on slack) or @mcdwayne if you have a project for Marketing. We will set up a Trello card and rally our team in Slack.

Today’s Meeting

Today’s meeting was the continuation of the last’s week meeting since we ran out of time. So, this time, the agenda was to continue with the card ‘scrub’ from last week. We followed up with the previously discussed Trello cards and the remaining ones which are listed on the Trello board.

During the first half of the meeting, @McDwayne did a quick round-up about the cards which were discussed in the previous meeting.

Marketing Team Meeting Notes – December 20, 2017

We came from WCUS Contributor Day on fire and ready to go with one unified vision: to become the marketing strategic advisors and content creators for you — the other Make WordPress teams.

We will not be meeting again until January 10, 2018.

We dedicated this meeting to a working meeting to things unfinished on our Trello Board, especially the WCUS Contributor Day Recap, the effort to get the word out about Make WordPress, and the jargon glossary.

Our whole meeting notes are here.

Marketing Team Update – December 13, 2017

This week the Make WordPress marketing team is working on a glossary to help breakdown the learning curve with industry jargon.

We hope to collaborate with the Design Team as soon as we’ve completed the copy.

We’re also wrapping up our summary article about WCUS Contributor Day, but we’re waiting for a few more teams to update/edit their paragraphs.

Here’s a link to our specific notes.

Thanks y’all.

Marketing Team – November 15, 2017 Update

Hi everyone.

The Marketing Team has four subgroups, each of whom post updates on the Marketing Blog.

For consensus in our meetings, we’ve decided to work on one task and at the 45 minute mark take wish list items. This is helping with the overall flow of meetings.

In today’s meeting we primarily discussed onboarding documentation for contributors since Contributor Day at WCUS is at the forefront of our minds. With that priority, we submitted this trac ticket to meta to create a clear CTA at the top of make.wordpress.org for all teams — to get them on dot org and WordPress Slack. We welcome your feedback on the copy, of course, as well. There is a link to the Google Doc (that’s where the Marketing Team Collaborates) at the bottom of the ticket.

Thank you.

Marketing the Community

This week the Community subgroup met. We published “What makes a WordPress Meetup Great?” and are working on a task list for Contributor Day at WCUS. It should also be noted that David Skarjune and the Agency and End Users subgroups have started to work on our own Handbook. Our meeting notes are here.

Marketing Team Published Content

It’s worth noting how much the Team has published in 2017. As the year comes to a close and we approach WCUS, I’d like to thank the Marketing Team for all of this great content.
