Just thought I'd chime in here...

The location of the post or the message, IMHO, is irrelevant. While  
it's honestly a great idea to join Meetup groups and promote  
something you have to say, it's not OK to join a group and  
*immediately* promote something. If you're part of a group first, and  
you've built a rapport with the crowd, they're a lot more receptive  
to your message. If the group members don't know you from Adam, it  
seems spammy, no matter how you write the message.

I encourage clients all the time to become known in networks such as  
Meetup groups or LinkedIn groups, but the key is to become part of  
the group first. Networking 101.

Best of luck with your event, though, Robert... looks like a great  
seminar. :)

Best Regards,
Mike
