Hi, my name is Harry Hodgson and I live in Britian . My FAS username
is harryrhodgson, and my IRC nickname is not yet created, I know how
to work IRC just don't have access to Fedora ATM to do so as I'm
I learned about the Fedora Marketing team through personal distro
research, and am interested in joining because I believe in freedom
and freedom that brings you the latest and greatest technological
advancements, I believe Fedora brings this - not only is it free but
it is also highly regarded and provides the user with a varied range
of applications that maximizes there usage.
This is the first FOSS project I have worked on! Although I've been
wanting to get involved for well over a year, no communities offered a
marketing experience like Fedora did!
I've worked in Marketing in the past. Some of the projects I've
worked on, or roles I've had, include:
Marketing Manager at LetsLunchUK - launched in the UK to just under
200 users, we secured coverage on TechCrunch, Wall Street Journal and
The Huffington Post
Marketing Director at LetsGrow Foundation - currently working with the
LetsGrow foundation to build a secure interest before launch.
Marketing manager at Flowsee - worked with start-up Flowsee to market
there social network and to kickstart there kick starter which raised
a suitable amount of money but didn't reach there goal.
My skills, which I hope to utilize in Fedora Marketing, include:
Social Media Marketing - Getting the Fedora community pumped
Physical marketing - Hopefully attending both online and offline
events and spreading the fedora cheer.
Media attention - Getting the media to spread the fedora way of life.
* Other skills include:
Podcasting and blogging knowledge.
Fantastic communication skills on and offline.
* I'd also like to learn:
* Development skills through the community although this isn't
marketing the community would be strong enough to teach me and
I'd be able to help Fedora in two areas.
When I'm not working on Fedora, I am educating myself on the ways of
business at South Axholme Academy. (Studying at this school.)
A couple of goals I have for the Fedora Project are to make fedora the
most popular linux distro in the UK maybe even the world and to meet
and socialize with hundreds of awesome open source loving humans -
that is so important to me, I want to be part of a community . I would
also like to see Fedora torrents - i've not seen them yet but usually
they're faster than mirror downloads and that would totally rock for
all those who want Fedora super fast.
I am wondering about why Fedora is so damn awesome? and will we ever
see a completely cloud based Fedora?.
Thanks for taking your time to read this email, it is very much
appreciated! Lets rock the open source world! I'd just like to thank
you for offering a template, so easy and gave me a lot of time to go
through and really put in consideration to what I was writing.
All the best,
it's great to have someone with marketing experience on board! We
currently have no one who'd be systematically working on Fedora
marketing in EMEA. I'm doing my best, but I'm more focused on Fedora
ambassadors program. Quite a few new people joined the marketing team
recently, but have stayed inactive because there is no leader and
coordinator. Creating a marketing strategy, coordinating the efforts,
and creating tasks for others is something we lack the most now.
I'm also glad that you're interested in social media marketing. I'm
currently the only one who actively maintains official Facebook and G+
pages of Fedora. Although I think it's frequently updated, I sometimes
don't have time and I don't know about all news, so some active
co-maintainer would be appreciated.
