Quick and Easy Marketing Activities

Per Louis' suggestion, I have started this page to list easy things people can do to promote OpenOffice.org in their spare time.

If you have 0 minutes

If you have 5 minutes

If you have 10 minutes

  • Support OpenOffice.org by adding it to your resumé. I wrote about this on SolidOffice.com:
    • "If you know or use OOo, you can promote yourself and subtly promote open source and open data formats at the same time. The process could not be simpler: just mention your knowledge of OpenOffice on your resume or CV! You’ll look smart, differentiate yourself from other candidates, and maybe even find a more comfortable, open source-friendly work environment at the same time."
  • Join the Mugshot.org OpenOffice Group.
    • Mugshot is an open source, meta social networking site. When you join a group, you can elect to receive updates when members make changes or add posts to their blogs.
  • Join the Facebook OpenOffice.org Group.

If you have 20 minutes

  • Email your friends and coworkers a quick message reminding them of the benefits of OOo and open source programs for their personal use. Give them a link to the Why? micro site.
  • Burn half a dozen CDs and give them to your friends. If they are typical Windows users, give them a 'CD for dummies' like The OpenDisc.
  • Create or print some flyers about OOo to hang in your college dorm or common space.
