Is there a way to volunteer to help with social media if we have some interest and experience, but don't necessarily have the time to take on all of these requirements?

If you have the desire then I would suggest emailing with what you can do, what your actual availability would be, and any other abilities or constraints. The odds are good that it will be seen as some help is better than none.

I just wanted to poke this and add this. You do not have to have a solid understanding of all platforms to join the team. If you only want to do IG stories? Great come aboard You want to just throw ideas out for content? Join us! :happy: There is not job that is too small, if you enjoy social media and just want to do something fun, we'd love to have you! And if you can only spend an hour a week doing something, that's still good by us! This is probably the most flexible position in marketing and it can be a LOT of fun.

Thanks for that clarification!

I was wondering, would it be possible to have a channel in our Discord where *anyone* could suggest content for social media? I'm sure people have passing ideas that would be great for us to use, and crowdsourcing some of this seems like it would only benefit us. Obviously only the official team would have the ability to post, but I feel like something like this might ease the burden on them a lot.
