The basic idea is, to make OpenLP known to more people. The CCLI 2010
Survey makes clear, that there is
indeed the possibility to promote OpenLP successful, since there is a
huge amount of people who do not use a special lyrics projection
software, but instead a normal presentation software.
For the promotion of OpenLP 2.0, it has been suggested that a press
release be written and issued.
Possible Publications to Target
Below is a list of publications which are suitable to submit such a
press release to. Please add any you may know of.
Furthermore, introduction videos can be created to explain some
features in detail. One example video could explain the CCLI import.
This video could be (needs to be checked) send to CCLI
which presents different lyrics projection software.
Show OpenLP running on various platforms / mention the platform it
runs on ("It runs on Mac Windows Linux ...")
What can it be used for (Songs, Bibles, Images, ....)
Show plugin list (-> enabled/disable what you want/do not want)
Explain GUI, as the viewer may not have it installed we need to show
that the GUI is intuitive. ("OpenLP is divided in four/five parts.
Within each part you can do certain tasks: The Mediamanager lets you
manage and edit your songs, bibles, images. The Preview Panel...")
Present some of its basic features
:# Create/Edit/Download (CCLI)/Import (a) song(s)
:# Preview items/send them live
:# Demonstrate "Search as you type" / "on thy fly" use
Maybe show something related to using/editing/creating Themes
Show some "special" features (which underline OpenLP's "uniqueness")
