Meetup - a Great Content Marketer's Platform838

Forum Owner Belew private msg quote post Address this user
I am a HUGE Meetup fan. My largest group has 1100+ members - Silicon Valley Bloggers and Writers.

But, I have 13 Meetup Groups! And over 6500 members total.

And that's not all. I have teamed up with @sunilbhaskaran, another forum member. Between the two of us we have 12,000+ Meetup members, ALL of them local to the Bay Area of San Jose, San Francicso, and Santa Cruz.

I have been a Meetup organizer for nearly 10 years.

Meetup is a great venue to get real people in the same physical room with me.

We can also do and have done webinars.

We get sponsors to feed us, sometimes pay to present (when it's relevant). And it's a great place to try out different things - new products = find beta testers, new presentation styles, to market your content or create content for marketing purposes ... and on and on.

Who else loves Meetup besides me?

I am looking for ideas.

What would you do if you have a Meetup group with 12,000 members in it?

Normal websites?
Email marketing?

This is what you would expect from one of the top 10 influencers in content marketing in the world, eh?

@Belew I doubt it has anything to do with that ... more based on the fact that I am giving people what they want ... and I do it in a way they can relate to...

Isn't that what you would expect?
Isn't that what we aim to do with content?

@Steve

Being really good at what you do helps, too.

still for some reason ... and it may be just me ... i am not making the most of what I have to offer.
