Get Involved – Join the TIE-Team!
Thank you for showing an interest in wanting to be a part of This is Europa and help us go to the next level. Below we will present different ways on how you can get involved with us. Keep in mind that most of the things listed below are merely suggestions and if you have other talents or ways of helping out don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can take it from there. The process will start with an email exchange and then a skype/hangout conversation in order to get to know you better and to find out where your skills are most useful.
Glad to have you onboard!
To join our team it is important that you feel like you are in strong agreement with our Statement of Principles. All content should also be of relevance to what we do in This is Europa.
- Constructive feedback
If you are familiar with our work and at the same time have some thoughts on what is unclear, sounds strange, can be said better and so on it could be good to discuss the content with you from time to time. It is always good to get feedback from someone who sees our work with fresh eyes.
If you want to write articles for us, get in contact with us first to pitch the topics you want to have published on our site. It’s also important that you follow our Author Guidelines.
- Video editor(s) for YouTube videos
We are looking for someone who can edit YouTube videos for us on a regular basis. We don’t have a fixed schedule but our ambition is to be able to release videos at least biweekly. The videos will be 3-10 minutes long each. Most of our videos will be educational/informative type videos. If you are unfamiliar with the type of content we create, check out our YouTube channel.
To make the editing process easier, we have invested in a full membership on videoblocks.com, which is an online “clip bank” which makes the job of finding relevant clips and such much easier and faster. And of course our editor(s) will get full access to it. We also have a membership over at audiohero.com for music and sound effects. We are also willing to invest in more similar sites if that can help with the production.
- Podcast editor(s)
Editing podcasts takes time. Not to mention the planning and doing the actual recording. Having someone who can help us edit the podcasts would really help us out as we could spend more time on creating content.
- T-shirt/Polo shirt/Poster/Sticker designs (graphic designers)
We wish to expand our shop and need more designs in order to do so. Higher priority on t-shirt and sticker designs.
- Social media content creator(s)
If you have a strong understanding of what This is Europa is all about and you are familiar with our approach, you are welcome to help us with creating and sharing memes, images and posts on our facebook, minds.com and twitter page in order to increase our activity on those platforms.
- Forum moderator(s)
Having our own forum has been well received by our followers. Unfortunately, people don’t always follow the forum rules (found in the group description). As we don’t have much time left over to moderate it we could use some moderators keeping our forum clean for us. Ideally, it should be someone who is active on the forum.
- WordPress/website assistance
Running a website will always lead to technical issues in one shape or form. Having a go-to-guy web guy with wordpress knowledge would be golden!
- SEO and page speed optimization
If you are knowledgeable about SEO optimization we would gladly accept your help in order to make our site more easy to find for people online. We also want to improve the pagespeed of our page. If you are familiar with wordpress and understand how to improve our speed from the results shown by https://gtmetrix.com, get in touch with us so that we may make the experience for our visitors even better.
- Spread our work
One thing that everybody can do if you like our page and our work is to share it to others. Leave a link to our site or Facebook/YouTube page in comment sections, forums or your social media feeds. Spread the word to your friends. Let people know about us. Even as something simple as just sharing more of our articles and facebook posts will help us to reach out to more people.
- Something else
Like we mentioned above, the things listed below are merely suggestions. If you have any other skills that you think could be of use to us please let us know by contacting us at email@example.com
