In a recent global communications zoom chat we discussed creating a rolling post that helps us share the resources we use within each instance to undertake our communications. I think part of this is physical how-to with tools and technology, but part of this is also about how we undertake community engagement.
Hopefully sharing more on this will help us reduce time spent trying to find the right tool for the job, and will also act as some cross-instance inspiration for new ways to communicate in our own locations (almost as though we were, I don’t know, a single global instance )
To kick things off, I have a couple of things I’d love to hear about from others:
Have you created videos of how to use the backend of the Open Food Network platform? What tools did you use to do this?
Have you run webinars on using the platform? Have they been well received and useful to users? What tools did you use to run them?
How are you engaging with those running enterprises through the platform compared to a broader comms? How are you building their sense of involvement in Open Food Network as more than software? (this may seem obvious to you, but I’m curious! Individual relationships? Emails to your shop managers? Broader newsletters? Events? Presenting at conferences? etc)
Pinging those on the call and who’ve expressed interest at other times, but keen to hear from others too! @nick @MyriamBoure @Rachel @tschumilas @AmandaW @CynthiaReynolds
And if others have questions in this vein, please add them so we can share
