Would like to "Get Involved"

Hi There.

I'd like to offer some assistance. I'm in Nova Scotia, Canada and have
20+ years of marketing and advertising experience. I'm Google AdWords
certified (search and display). I'm also a graphic designer, voice
actor, writer, musician, and can do some video editing.

I'm not sure what you need in terms of marketing, but I'd love to assist.

Re: Would like to "Get Involved"

Hi Glen,

Thanks for your offer of help, and welcome to the LibreOffice community!
We're currently in a busy period, leading up to the release of
LibreOffice 6.0 later in the month (or early February), but there's
still plenty to do. And with your background and experience, I'm sure
you can help us in many ways!

Our marketing efforts are generally focused on two things:

1) Making end users aware of LibreOffice
2) Getting people to join the community as active contributors

For the former, we've made some end user-oriented videos like this, as
you may have seen:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KC0ZdcA6s8

We also make videos showing off new features in each release. One idea
that has been floating around (that you may be interested in) is a video
similar to the one linked above, but focused on enterprises. It would
talk about enterprise features, interoperability, migrations, deployment
methods, and commercial support options. If you're interested in the
idea (good voice overs are always very welcome!) just let me know and we
can discuss it further.

Similarly, we'd like to make a video for the Play Store, showing off the
Android version. In terms of other marketing materials, we have these
flyer designs which could be updated or redesigned:

There are some other materials here as well (the page is a bit cluttered
as the project has grown over the years):

https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/Material

I don't know much about AdWords, but maybe you could help us there;
Italo Vignoli, who has been doing marketing for LibreOffice and
OpenOffice.org for many years, is in charge of our AdWords account I
believe. So maybe he can add some thoughts...

Anyway, I hope some of those ideas are interesting for you! And as with
all things open source, if you find something missing or something else
we could improve, feel free to dive in and work on it.

Thanks again for your help!

Mike

Re: Would like to "Get Involved"

We have a free Google AdWords account as part of our Google for Non
Profits membership, which is limited to 330 dollars per day (we fill it
on a regular basis). We run several different ads, and some help would
definitely be useful to do better targeting.

Maybe, we can have a chat next week, once I have drafted the media kit
for LibreOffice 6.0 announcement.

Thanks, Italo

Re: Would like to "Get Involved"

Excellent! Thanks Mike and Italo.

Let me digest what you've sent, review the videos etc., and then we'll
see what I can do. Looking forward to it!
