Recruiting new contributors SOP
This is a Marketing SOP that describes how to recruit potential collaborators and help them in the getting started process. This SOP aims to guide the ambassador or experienced collaborator, the novice to take his/her first steps.
A lot of new contributors get confused about the joining Fedora teams process. Some times they aren't able to contact some ambassador or team expert. Another situation on which the ambassador does not know how to make use of their skills. Sometimes the wiki isn't clear enough.
Let them see why they should join
There are many reason why Fedora Project would be a great expedience to any contributor. To emphasize the proper, you have to know the potential contributor, mainly their interests. For example, if he likes to make new friends, show him the chance to socialize whit other contributors.
Do not make the process seems complicated
While we pursue through a "protocol" to join a team, explain it in the simplest way possible. Finding it complex may cause frustration. Of course it depends on the team hi wants to join, so try to look for the best way to explicate the getting started steps.
