Marketing: Write an “I use Fedora” story!

September 16, 2009 – 10:47 pm

Based on this mailing list post at Francesco Ugolini’s suggestion.

After being at both the F12 release events meeting and the Marketing meeting today, I thought this might be a good opportunity for Ambassadors to help create Marketing collateral that would be useful for other Ambassadors: Prepare short stories for “I use Fedora” rotations on the webpage and Fedora Insight. (Fedora Insight is https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Insight – we call it FI for short.)

It’s something that would be great for Ambassadors to do before the F12 launch (before the Beta launch, if possible) – write up your story about using Fedora, the stories of your friends and the people you’ve introduced Fedora to – and also potentially something fun to do at an F12 launch event; interview new users, make a podcast with them, film them describing something cool they’ve just discovered about their new operating system, help them write an article for FI.

If you write ‘em, we can help you edit and publish ‘em. Just link to your work in a comment on that ticket (you’ll have to log in with your FAS credentials first) and we’ll take it from there. (Yes, there will be a better workflow shortly.) There are three target dates that would be particularly great to hit:

  • 10/11 – 2 days before the Beta release of F12
  • 11/08 – 2 days before the GA (final) release of F12
  • 12/01 – a week before FUDCon

Questions? Comments? Feedback? (“I Use Fedora” stories?) Go!

PS: Got something you’d like the Marketing team to make for you? Need Marketing consultation for an event? Send us a ticket!
