I would like to suggest to prepare kits for under-serviced regions
where LibreOffice has not made any inroads. The kits could contain the
following (localized (language) versions where applicable):
Could there be more online material thatcan be downloaded and printer
* banners for booth (2 banners, one for the back wall and one for a
* one retractable banner
* table cloth
* SWAG (whatever we can get at a reasonable cost at the time of purchase)
* 2-3 printed copies of "Get Started with LibreOffice" with
promotional cards detailing where to purchase copies on-line
* LibreOffice DVD's (50 localized copies) and ability to burn any
other additional copies with the help of a booth-computer.
Have I missed any other "booth" supplies?
We could seed under-serviced areas with these kits, but, pick
strategic locations to well-attended conferences to start the seeding.
We could then ask the local LibreOffice reps manning the booth to put
out a "donation jar" to help fund more local kits that would be sent
to other local conferences where it could mushroom out from there.
If this sounds reasonable then, we would only have to cost out an
approximate value to this proposal.
How does this sound?
Create a list of materials - with their files links - in one place that
will be all that a local promoter needs? The current marketing site
does not have what is needed.
Banners - several sizes - for hanging on wall, table, and a sign-stand.
SWAG - well if there is a company that offers a good price on limited
quantities, that would be great.
Promotional cards for LO and where to buy the books
DVDs - like what the NA-DVD project has created would be nice for
Brochures - like Drew created for the NA-DVD project are always needed
"Official" LO shirts - polo-style for the boot personnel would make them
look more professional.
I wonder if there would be an ability to sell some of the LO books at
If a local person, like me, could be able to download the files and get
them printed locally, and order the shirt and SWAG items for
himself/herself, that would be great. Providing the funds to create
these items for local events that would help promote LO would be great
I know that, even in a smaller community area where I live, we have
different "events" where a booth to display LO might work. These are
not "software events" but ones that the community tends to go to. Then
there are the events for community businesses. Having a booth at one of
those promoting LO might get them to start to think about LO for their
business, or at least for their homes.
