I was approached by a fellow named Dan Shipley on Twitter who asked me if I know any communities of people working in marketing for co-ops.

I am not aware of such community, so we thought we could set one up - ideally as part of P6. He would be interested in having a call next week on 3-5 UK time on any day except Monday.

Would someone be interested in joining the call? Ill start a Loomio poll on the time.

Do you know what he means by marketing @leosammallahti ? In my experience people use the term for different things. Does he mean promotion (of co-ops in general or individual co-ops) or does he mean the whole marketing mix - understanding your product/service from the point of view of a customer - product/customer, price, place, promotion etc?

We talked about it quite briefly but if I understood correctly he means a community of people involved in marketing co-ops. Heres a quote from him:

"I wonder what it would look like to put something together, even if it was just a grown-up version of some of those coop discord groups with some of social coop governance. I bet a place to share press lists, talk shop, and just learn from each other might be super cool. I have seen slack groups filling this niche for some professionally oriented communities. Idk though - what are your thoughts. "

So now I'm slightly more confused. That could be either of the two examples I gave; and now a third option occurs - Are we talking about "marketing co-ops" as a type of co-op consortium?

Nothing has been set in stone yet. Im imagining just a community of marketing people working for coops.

Don't have much flex on either day, but happy to be involved if I can.

I read this as an interest in the idea of a networking forum for people with an interest in marketing within the co-operative economy. On that basis it could cover a fairly wide spectrum of subject matter.

Mark Simmonds  (Co-op Culture & Platform 6)

Sorry none of those. Also not sure if I need to be there.

Leo Sammallahti

Leo Sammallahti June 24th, 2019 15:17

So tomorrow at 5 oclock we shall have the call?

I also invited Iwan Doherty, the editor in chief of The Peoples News to join the call. He has done great job setting up and running the publication.

Graham

Graham June 24th, 2019 15:29

Actually something's come up that I can't avoid - I can't make 5pm tomorrow (Tuesday). Really sorry. I understand totally if you want to push ahead regardless, but if it is OK to re-schedule I'd be up for that.

Thursday 4th of July would be good 4 PM @graham2 could you set up Zoom? Dan and probably Iwan will join.

Mark Simmonds  (Co-op Culture & Platform 6)

We already have a P6 Directors meeting scheduled for 4pm on Thursday. Is that still happening?

Graham

Graham July 2nd, 2019 15:17

My error for not spotting that as I didn't have the meeting in my calendar. Can I suggest that we combine the two, and invite Dan and Iwan to a 30 minute call at 4pm to talk about the marketing group idea, and then we follow that with a brief drekters' meeting?

Leo Sammallahti

Leo Sammallahti July 2nd, 2019 22:20

Good idea I am for that. When can I confirm to Dan whether we gonna do that or not?
