#ellenBrain Turns a Long Weekend Into: HackerNoon Swag Around the World

Ellen Stevens HackerNoon profile picture

Ellen Stevens

Editor and Marketing Campaign Lead at HackerNoon.

This Slogging thread by Ellen, Linh, David, Amy, Natasha, Daria and Zaeem Shoaib occurred in HackerNoon's official #general channel, and has been edited for readability.

This 'thready' likely doesn't need much explanation, however, here's a brief one:

Ellen announced to all that she would be away for a couple of days and ended up 'working' anyway. Completely on her own accord.

She decided to have some drinks and take selfies in the awesome hat she got for X-mas from the wonderful boss humans.

The selfies were posted on FB. Linh was amused by what she saw on the 'face of books' and shared it with the class.

Below is how marketing concepts are born (sometimes)!! Have a wonderful weekend y'all!

Most importantly, the hat is awesome, get it and other HackerNoon merch here!!

Am I allowed to consider myself a tech bro yet? I just want to be a tech bro. This hat is so stylin tho. It's like cool kid gear.

Here are some more Ellen+Bubbly+Wigs+Filter selfies of HN hats. Shameless self-indulgence. Hat/ 'toque' is awesome, big thank you!Β Bunny ears not included.

Yeah you will Amy! Looking forward to it!

EllenJan 19, 2022, 7:10 PM

So will there be a page for this or will we include the photos directly in the store catalog? Because this could be a funny marketing project.

LinhJan 19, 2022, 7:13 PM

I think for quick access can just create a notion page just to organize everything in one place. But I like the idea of a marketing campaign Daria Natasha what do we think?

EllenJan 19, 2022, 7:14 PM

We could have so many lolz with it, Limarc can present as Verse CEO in HN gear. I can schedule it for a less busy time, but I was just curious since we have this collection of photos David posted. Wanted to clarify the use case.

NatashaJan 20, 2022, 9:45 AM

Got started on the drive folder here: [Secret Link]

  • Daria let's schedule like 1-2 posts / week using these photos for, like, 3 months? πŸ˜„ can get interns to help adding copy and CTA?
  • Daria /Kien maybe your intern to make a video / reel out of all these? (One of those that's just a supercut of like, 50 photos with a banging soundtrack)
  • Kien can you pretty please add ALL of these to unsplash? (or ask an intern to do it?) πŸ™‚
NatashaJan 20, 2022, 9:52 AM

As for the process for briefing tasks like this to the marketing team, let's try a simple list in Notion? have created one here, with an example brief, feel free to edit! [Secret Link]

DariaJan 20, 2022, 11:10 AM

I’m up for a campaign! Scheduling those beauties to be shared on socials for the next 3 months

DariaJan 20, 2022, 11:12 AM

Also, an idea for next All-Hands for people to wear any HackerNoon merch they own to take a screenshot to be shared later on socials :hn:

EllenJan 20, 2022, 8:54 PM

Yeah something like this would be good, I think it would be cool to do a blog post as well, I will schedule it in sometime next month or something. It will give everyone a chance to do photoshoots. Plus the All Hands idea is brilliant but there should be a review process of the photo.

LinhJan 20, 2022, 8:57 PM

lol if only the internet at large takes itself as seriously as ellen’d like =))
