Grants:IdeaLab/Access Free Wikipedia by any data network

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Access Free Wikipedia by any data network
Wikipedia is no doubt a good source of information. There is need for better marketing ( which is fulfilling the need, rather advertising for profits); Wikipedia should sign MoUs with all data providers (ISPs) / Telecom operators so that free internet access should be provided to everyone to access Wikipedia. This will boom the wiki visitors. Best Wishes.

Who are the people you want to introduce Wikipedia to?[edit]

Try to be as specific as possible about this group.
Wikipedia should send its Newsweek/Magazine to every library. This is what I want.

In what languages do they search for information, online or otherwise?[edit]


In what ways does this group communicate with each other?[edit]

This can include services and apps in social media, mailing lists, physical spaces like conferences or lectures, or at specific institutions like at a library.
Social Media

What are some reasons this group would use Wikipedia? How would they benefit from it, or what would they find useful?[edit]

Think about what they would be interested in reading and learning about; does Wikipedia provide better access to information this group cares about?
Everyone going to the library is the perfect match for Wiki.

Project idea[edit]

What language Wikipedia projects will you promote to new readers?[edit]


How will you communicate with new readers? Will you be communicating with them online, in-person, or both?[edit]


Describe your idea to engage new readers. How might it be implemented? What will you tell people about Wikipedia?[edit]

Think about the steps that might involved to make this idea happen, and what you might teach people about your experience or others' experiences using Wikipedia.
Wikipedia should send a Newsweek/magazine to every library in the world. She should sign MoUs with all possible internet providers for giving access to free Wikipedia.

How will you know if this project is successful? What are some outcomes that you can share after the project is completed?[edit]

If you’re not certain about how to respond to this question when starting your idea, you do not need to answer it right now. Campaign participants and Wikimedia Foundation staff can help you consider some options.
The library will attract more readers to you, You just need to share achievements and stats. Free Wikipedia is itself a huge marketing strategy, people would love to get benefit from it.

Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?[edit]

Do you need people with specific skills or resources to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? Do you need advising from Wikimedia Foundation staff?
If Wikipedia supports me or hires me to do this in Pakistan, I can do it for you.

Project plan[edit]


We need to get the magazine/handout printed and then it will be distributed in university and colleges.


This will impact a lot as Pakistan has the majority of youth.
