Marketing Team Update – May 23, 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. We reiterate our mission each week so that everyone who is new to the team understands what our goals are.

For those who want to join the team, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. If you have any questions or feel lost (all of us do at some point), please feel free to 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).

Growth and Onboarding

We’re growing in passion, numbers, and tasks. It’s an honor to be part of a kind, yet fast-moving team.

If you’re thinking of participating in the Marketing team at WCEU’s Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time.

Myself, @mcdwayne@jenblogs4u, and @yvettesonneveld will be there.

We are also working on a 1 Page PDF for Contributor Day onboarding; we were waiting for feedback on our edits to the Handbook for Contributor Day but may proceed regardless.

Today’s Meeting

The Marketing team used the 2/28 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/. meeting to focused on updates to the tasks that exist in Trello currently.

The marketing team uses the weekly meeting to run through our 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. Cards and see what’s up. We’re growing in passion, numbers, and tasks. It’s quite rewarding right now, actually. Lots to be proud of.

It’s good to remember that everyone that contributes on this team are volunteers.

Our main update this week is that @mcdwayne is leading a Contribution Sprint with @bridgetwillard at 9am Sunday, March 11, to make a huge dent in our Handbook Copy. As a team, we believe we’ve got enough “tribal knowledge” as Dwayne puts it, to start putting that in a doc, making it easier to onboard new members and solidify our vision.

The Marketing Team has grown quite a bit since @rosso99 started it at WCEU some years ago and our hope is that our Handbook is published and ready for WCEU’s Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time.

Contributor Days

Among our regular meetings, we monitored the Slack channel for WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Bangkok and an impromptu CD was held after WordCamp Phoenix. Thanks everyone!

@bridgetwillard is reaching out to camps individually and keeping track on a Google Sheet. WC Bangkok was monitored by @bridgetwillard. She will also cover the WC Prague time period. That Google Sheet is here.

About WordPress Press Kit

We also published the Press Kit we’ve been working on since WCUS Contributor Day.  Thanks to @andreamiddleton and Community for bringing this to us. @marybaum and @jenblogs4u rocked this with tons of help from @nuanel to make sure it’s translation ready. We edited text originally written for CMS Garden by the German WP Community. You rock, Robert!

Titles and MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. Descriptions – Request from Meta

Of note is we also were asked to work with Meta on an SEO project which was completed February 16.

Updating and Maintaining Showcase Page

Marketing was also contacted this week about owning the Showcase Page. @JohnGrohol brought it up to both channels this week.  @bridgetwillard and @otto42 are chatting. Thanks @joostdevalk for pinging Marketing.

The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. 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 GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ User Testing Testimonial Videos, revisionsRevisions The WordPress revisions system stores a record of each saved draft or published update.

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.
