Ideas for promoting DebConf. Publicity and Social Media
- Write a blog post: always add DPN + Microblog proposals too
- Handle @debconf Twitter account
- Create @debconf GNUSocial/Pump.io account
- Spread the word in social networks where we (people) are present: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pump.io (larjona), GNUSocial (larjona)
- Translate the sponsorship brochure and maybe other relevant info or announces into relevant languages (German, Spanish, Chinese?). Or put workforce in translating the Debian Project News.
- There is probably quite a lot to be taken and learnt from https://github.com/PyCon/2015/wiki/PyCon-2015-Checklist
 Possible blogposts
- Sponsors (microblog announcing each signed sponsorship?)
- Fundraising campaign?
- Call for talks
- Opening Weekend
- GSoC/OPW students coming to DebConf
- DC14 final report
- Call for papers
- First set of talks accepted.
- Registration is now open for Debconf15
- Sponsored registration for Debconf closes today
- Second set of talks accepted. Last call
- Talks review and selection process
Status update by LArjona
I'm gathering all the published items from DC14 in July/August in the different channels (bits, dcblog, identi.ca...) in the wiki, as a guide for this year: https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf15/Germany/PromotionIdeas
I have time during July to work on DebConf publicity, so expect updates/proposals in the mailing list next weekend at most.
Today we had a meeting the Publicity team, and we will try to "prepare in advance" the coverage of DebConf15 in a similar way that we do for the releases: a "filler" with some already-crafted notes for posting in the social networks, and templates for the different announces.
However, I'm not sure if there is something "urgent" that needs to be done:
something to be published "anywhere" this week or next week. If you expect that I (or publicity team) do something, please contact me or send email to the list.
After 02/08/2015, I will not be available to work on this, so please refer to the Publicity team mailing list in case that no other volunteer steps ahead for publicity stuff.
