Re: [libreoffice-marketing] Africa as a marketing target (?)


Global marketing activities in education are extremely difficult,
because of the language issue (most education systems use the country
native language), and the costs associated to reaching all schools in a
country. Because of our size and budget, local communities should try to
reach schools, although we will never be able to reach the same results
of companies such as Microsoft and Apple with large budgets.

For instance, TDF supports the Italian community with a budget for
activities in schools, but the budget itself is peanuts in comparison
with Microsoft Italia budget (is less than 1/1000) where they give away
software and even hardware (Surface laptops).
