The Agriculture Value Chains Team uses a WordPress powered website as a centralized form of communication. Following are a few videos surrounding blog publishing. It is advised that AVC staff familiarize themselves prior to departure with fast internet.
Things you will need:
- A untappedmarkets.ca account based on your @ewb.ca email address
- A @ewb.ca email address from EWB
If you do not have either of these contact EWB-IT or the AVC Team Lead.
WordPress is a blog (or “Web log”) management system. It allows us to publish articles and easily manage the information we put online. We use this system since it is powerful and easy to use platform.
www.untappedmarkets.ca was created by the AVC team to share our insights for our African partners, the development sector, EWB supporters in Canada as well as AVC staff.
To get started, you can login using the “Blog Login” link under the “Staff” section on the right side bar.
Writing and publishing a post:
Posts are articles that show up on our main front page. Please see this video for an introduction:
We may work collaboratively to check each other’s writing and schedule the publishing of different articles. The following videos talk about working with drafts and scheduling when they will be published.
Categorizing and Tags:
We categorize and tag our posts to make specific topics easier to find for our readers. It’s best to select which category your article or post falls under.
Static “Pages” (like this one)
On untappedmarkets.ca we have a few “pages” that present additional information about our team. These include pages on our team strategy, and learning modules like this one. It is important to ensure that information on these pages are kept up to date.
