There will be a meeting in our chat room on Tuesday, December 27, at 18:00 UTC / 20:00 IST / 13:00 EST to discuss the next steps in promoting this site to the outside world. Anyone interested is welcome to attend and contribute. Abby T. Miller and possibly other SE staff will be there.
SE has budgeted us up to a total of $2000 for external advertising and the Ambassadors program.
Decide how much of the budget to keep in reserve for either Ambassadors (if we get volunteers) or future advertising.
Decide which publications to advertise in now, and how much ad to buy in each.
Determine a concrete way forward for designing/selecting an ad design (or multiple designs for different publications).
Feel free to start posting ideas here or at the linked posts about advertising ahead of time.
