Re: [opensuse-project] Reviving the marketing team
Hi Vinz and fellow chameleons,

really great idea! What about a possibility for internet content to be
published on openSUSE? Like my game reviews or distro articles on
openSUSE as a gaming platform might be relevant for these marketing

For example this base article on opensuse gaming:

or the article on

"how to turn opensuse into a gaming machine" article for leap 15.0:

Beside the fact that these articles are in german they might be
interesting for a wider opensuse audience.

Wasn't opensuse planet some kind of blog aggregation for this purpose?

All the best,

Hi all!

Watching openSUSE from being not involved in development I get the impression
that it keeps acting like a poker player:

Having a full deck of cards at hand including four aces but not showing to
anyone just because the position of his sun glasses could… possibly…
eventually… under circumstances… be optimized.

That's something I want to change and want to revive the marketing team and
get arts people involved. So I started to take notes:

1) Create content
- present tools
- continuous reports about developments going on
- do interviews with different people/teams about their work in oS
- ask people running booths to report
- show how cool oS features are
- draw pictures, memes and such
- create video demos of various oS features

2) Create buzz
- push stuff from 1) to any platform online
- push shop-o-o with monthly product
- make raffles of stickers etc.
- invite to chats, forums etc. to discuss things

3) Keep following up
- run regular onboarding events for new people interested to help
- tailor events for special interests ("how to work with oS as a web dev")

I am willing to step up and coordinate the whole thing a bit. But this all
needs a few more people. Anyone wanting to help with this is welcome. Also
please keep in mind that the things I mentioned are just ideas and discussion
is very much welcome.

What are your thoughts? Who's in?
