Announcement/Discuss­ion: Any member may suggest an event!

This month we will be holding a discussion around group event management. The group will now be more in line with the official WordPress Chapter. Since our meetup was started in 2010 before the WordPress Chapter program was created we’ve been doing it old school, but that is all changing and we hope that some of you will take advantage of this!

So what is changing?

Any member of the meetup group may now suggest and/ or schedule an event through the WordPress meetup site. When a new event is suggested/ scheduled a message will be sent to all group members telling them of the new event and allowing them to join the event or not.

In the past, only group organizers could schedule events. This was limiting the group to a single event a month on a single day with a single topic. By opening the group and allowing any member to schedule an event we are hoping the availability of events will grow.

More organizers = more events on different days, times and topics! Everyone wins!

We hope that those of you who are excited about education and have a passion for community will jump on board! Scheduling an event does take a little work. However, to help expedite the process we created an FAQ that will hopefully guide you past some of the issue you might encounter.

    I'd love to get some more knowledge on Paypal Upgrades and WooCommerce if anyone can speak to that. It seems to be all I'm dealing with that's a challenge these days. Otherwise, I'd recommend doing in depth reviews of member sites and have everyone submit upgrade ideas and change recommendations to better that site based on what is working for them...Thoughts?
    We all need traffic, we all need sales conversions...any topic that feeds those issues would be good ones. Sadly, I am not an authority on any of that...still struggling to garner more traffic myself.

      I have experience with the ecommerce issues and could answer some of those questions. I recommend Stripe for the best ecommerce solution with woocommerce. It's cheaper than PayPal. Check out the Striper plugin.

    I'd love to share my value with this group. Looking forward to meet everyone. I just boosted my traffic to my wordpress blog this week from 50 unique visitors a day to 100! On the roll to keep improving!

    Hey everyone,
    In an effort to drive more traffic and share my work with the group, I've begun the task of a podcast. I would love your opinion on the show whenever you get the time to check it out.
    Check it out here:
    feel free to contact me directly with your opinion or leave a comment on the post or on iTunes. Also, if you know anyone in the biz and think they would be a great guest or referral, please spread the word. Thanks for the feedback.
