If you were at our November Meetup, I shared some of the economics of running a Meetup. I just found out that I will have to pay taxes on the income -- not too happy about that, but I'll survive.
But I did reveal the major secret of the quality of food I provide and I want to use this information as a way to encourage you to invite your friends. Here's the deal: If we get 36 or more attendees, I will order Pizza from Westport Pizza. Less than 36 and its anyone's guess.
You shouldn't need much of a reason to encourage your friends, to join, but hey, if you know you'll be running late and don't just want to eat chips and carrots, make sure your friends know about our Jan 18 event at the VFW.
Here's the invite I sent last week:
Social media continues to dominate the marketing landscape as a must-have tactic and an exciting way to tell any story -- and critique what you find wrong with the world. But what are the best ways to harness the power of Social Media to achieve a business objective? Register for our January 18 event by clicking here.
Shore Communications President John Blossom will represent the case for Google+, the platform that's been built from the ground up to avoid the mistakes of all the other Social media platforms.
Nate Berger, President of KnockMedia will represent Facebook in all its dominant glory. What are the trends, what should we look for?
