General public opinion about starting a mass-promotion

Postby BlackNoxis » Sat Sep 10, 2011 16:08

Hello to everyone and great respects for the dev team of Sabayon.

As I suggested in the title, I want to ask the dev team to start a General Public Opinion about how to start a Mass-Promotion and Sabayon Advertising system around the globe by Facebook, E-mails, Messenger and all other ways of promoting Sabayon Linux system :D

I propose :

- Sending E-mails on behalf of the individuals users that support Sabayon Linux to any other friend in friendlists
- Posting your own Sabayon print screens on your Facebook, HI5, Twitter, and other types of sites, with a clear message you promote Sabayon because "things just-work" or any other messages related with Sabayon quotes
- General meeting in your home town with Linux users and talk about invitations to Sabayon-side, it's a hard job convincing people, but it's worth saying your idea to all your friends and known Linux users around you.
- Creating third-party Forums to promote the idea of Sabayon.

In my home city I will personally carry out a minor promotion and I will arrange a meeting with some Linux users to explain them Sabayon's cause, so I will need some help. I am from Romania, Cluj-Napoca city, if it is anyone of my country aligned to Sabayon system, I would greatly appreciate your help to establish a day of meeting :D
Oh, and I forgot to say : any opinions would be just fine replied here :D

Best Regards to Sabayon Community and Dev Team

Updates / News 19 Sept 2011

I've talked with some Sabayon Users about creating a Advocacy Group for Sabayon Linux :wink: to spread the word about the existence of this Linux System :D
My personal thought : If there is anything we could do for Sabayon Linux, this is it.

Is there any dev that could officialize and coordonate this action if submitted to vote or mail system request ?

Update / News 10 November
Action canceled :D Making new idea of projects next week :D

Oh and one more thing : It's not quite about fan-base or fan-made things here, it's about my free time helping the community by making it grow and mediatize it more :)

Do we have a Youtube channel yet, for how-to vids (or just for showing off killer desktops)?

Oh, but I'm sure you're eager to help, am I right ? :>

About this I am not quite sure of, but it's a good idea :D

It's not about fan boys here, it's about our very system we believe in, much much better than any other systems. If we attract more users, the community will grow, donations will increase. A logical thought I put here :>

Many things must be done, and I'm already proceeding with a day-meet with some Linux users to talk about Sabayon and present it to the public. I'll show some photos soon enough. Hope some admin / dev will show up

Hi everybody, i started this campaign talking with my mates at work.
All the production systems are based on Linux, but everybody (except me with 2 PCs and 3 other co-workers)
are Micro$oftizied. Ain't easy to spread the word but the best way is in your own ambient.

I have 2 PC at home, one HTPC and the Laptop. Both with Sabayon Flavours.
In my work i use Sabayon too on my 2 PCs, sometimes is pretty hard to do some
well known "M$ tasks" in Linux without the co-workers (M$) blessing.

I demostrate everybody that Linux can do whatever appears on the front.

The new Webpage of Sabayon is an incredible eye-catching promo. :D

Banners, on the what-ever-account (Twitter, FB, torrent site) are a good start. :wink:

Count with me on this...

·Intel [email protected]/2Gb Ram/250Gb/x3100 GM965/Sabayon Mate 13.07 x64 @lappy
·Intel [email protected]/2Gb Ram/800 Gb/Zotac 8400GS-512Mb-HDMI/Sabayon Mate 13.07 x64 @HTPC

BlackNoxis: Seems my opinion that it looked a little fanboy for my own personal taste got into you :P Truth is that even if that's the case, it's the right thing. Users have to show others what they like and appreciate. Users can help make the project itself stronger (helping with development, giving tech support to others, ...) or help make it a consolidated project (spreading the word, showing the awesomeness the project has, ...). And the project has to show it likes what its users do.

Just be careful to never act in Sabayon's name but as a user/supporter/lover/whatever who likes Sabayon. Each kind of promotion (oficial, made by users) should work on their own (IMO).

I've mooed to the devs a few minutes ago. Probably someone will say something tomorrow morning :wink:
