What problem does this solve?Edit

We all know events needs publicity, but how do we create a way in which a range of people can collaborate in taking action on publicity. How can we record which actions have been taken and how can we develop an understanding of how effective the different actions might be?

What is the solution?Edit

The publicity sub page can have an outline of suitable publicity and people can put their date-stamped name against an activity when they have just done it, so that others can what has been done and what remains to be done. If a link as added to stats.grok.se for the editathon page, then it becomes possible to check on the effectiveness of the publicity by comparing the page hits on the days in which specific publicity actions are taken.

Things to considerEdit

  • Publicity strategy for Wikimedians
  • Publicity strategy for partner organisation
  • Publicity strategy for topic/interest area
  • Publicity strategy for local public
  • Publicity strategy for general public

When to useEdit

The publicity page should be set-up as soon as you have started the event page
