Content That Converts: How SMBs and Startups Can Get It, Use It and Crush It

Are your prospects and customers excited to hear from you? Do they love getting your emails, sharing your social posts and content, and attending your events? 

Email and social media are among the most powerful, cost-effective marketing channels for small businesses and startups. But if your content doesn't rock, you're missing the best opportunity for growing your audience.

If you're trying to generate new business, grow your audience with email and social, and boost results with content marketing, don't miss this special session.

Join the Greater Philly Small Business Marketers meetup for (free!) pizza, sodas, networking and education on Wednesday, March 20 from 6 - 8 p.m.

In a fast-paced, interactive session with Hunter Boyle of AWeber, you'll learn:

  • Budget-friendly ways to create and curate standout content
  • How to avoid the common pitfalls SMBs face with email and social
  • Simple steps to grow your audience, keep 'em engaged and drive conversions


Then, we'll shift gears and feature a panel of local small biz pros who are having great success with content marketing. Our awesome panelists:

We'll hear about cool ways they're using content, lessons they've learned and results they've seen, plus live Q&A around these topics.

AND if that's not enough, after this meetup, some of us are heading to nearby North Bowl to enjoy a few frosty beers and totally noncompetitive bowling. All skill levels are welcome (applies to the beers and the bowling)!

Our friends at SEER Interactive are hosting this rocking event at their awesome Search Church in Northern Liberties.

    Will any handouts from, or recordings of, last night's event be made available? And/or, can panelists point to any materials (slideshare?) than come close to matching the content from the meetup? (SO UNFORTUNATELY, I could not attend, as planned, as my daughter needed a chaperone for her boy band concert. We had a blast.) Thanks! Chris

      Holy smokes, Batman. The file on slideshare's been robbed!

    • Hunter B.

      Had some serious formatting issues on Slideshare and am trying to fix those. Will update the group as soon as it's fixed and live again. Thanks.
