Marketing Campaign through ThanksTo.com

Outline[edit | edit source]

Designed to create awareness and build recognition of Wikipedia. If you want to give thanks to Wikipedia please post a message through this link: http://www.thanksto.com/campaign/wikipedia.

What is ThanksTo?

ThanksTo is a website for giving public recognition to the people and organisations that make your lives better. It’s about championing the people in your communities who really deserve it, by sharing your inspirational stories about them with others. By encouraging people to share their stories about the organisations or people who have made a positive impact ThanksTo aims to show everyone the value of those acts, and how much they are appreciated.

Benefits[edit | edit source]

Primary Objectives: Helping people realise the benefits of Wikipedia, creating more recognition and general awareness for Wikipedia.

Secondary Objectives: The idea is the after thanking Wikipedia through the ThanksTo website this could motivate people to donate, contribute and/or volunteer. On our campaign page we have put a link to a donation page for Wikimedia and we will put links to pages that need better content.

We will specifically be targeting universities and students in London.

Requirements[edit | edit source]

We will be needing funding for printing of flyers, t-shirts, organisation of an event and sevral other minor costs. We will be getting various sponsors, however if Wikipedia can possibly sponsor the project and/or help out in any way it would be truly appreciated.

Volunteering[edit | edit source]

We are a team of 5 and will be working closely together for the next 6 weeks. However if anyone is interested in helping out, volunteers are always welcome. Our current team is Nasko Zahariev, Yuliya Panarina, Miruna Marinescu, Cass Wortmann and myself, Emilien Hoet (Team Leader).
