How To Attract New Members And Increase Awareness To Your Meetup Group

Promoting your Meetup Group should be seen, as promoting a business. Having a Meetup with no members is a waste of time and resources. Having a Meetup group with lots of inactive members is more frustrating than failing an exam. The vision of Meetup.com is having members and active ones too. In this Meetup we will be looking at how we can grow our meet up whether it's for fun or business. We will also look at increasing member participation. For everyone who is up for a challenge, we will also take up a 90 day challenge on applying the principles learned. We will look at all the possible ways of using Social Media to promote our groups? Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, Vimeo, Foursquare. The £7.00 is to cover some light food so we can eat together while we learn together. Are you up for this?

    This time the venue was fairly straight-forward to find, as oppossed to the last meetup organisers event I went to, it was a very informative evening, and gained useful information!!

    We start our 90 day challenge tomorrow based on the tips Sajid shared with us. We have all been given assignment to do. We had been told that if we carry out these techniques step by step , we will have increased membership and also be seen as the expert.
    Thank you all for making this day a fantastic meeting.

    Absolutely excellent. I really liked Sajid's practical approach of examples we could actually try out. Amazing how much came across in such a short time. We were very lucky with this!!
    Bernie's presentation - I liked the slides as a backup to a talk, but the talk was too fleeting so I didn't take much away from it. But Bernie's enthusiasm and character came across : )

    Sajid's step by step presentation was really worthwhile.

    Apologies for the confusion with £7 & £10 I have been meaning to sort that out! Check your in box for news about this next session.

    The point I'm trying to make is, it doesn't specify on the invite what the payment is for, plus it's slightly confusing if it's £10 or £7 or both.

    This is something as organisers of our own individual groups are going to come across, as if we put an event up that require's a payment of some kind, we need to be specific what benefit a member is going to get by paying it!

    If we don't, some members will question it and the rest won't come along as they can't see a benefit!

    Maybe it's for all their hard work and for the value of the content?!
    Sorry that question actually sounds rather rude and critical to me as a fellow member - it sounds like a suggestion that the event might be rather worthless? I believe it sounds good and I attended Placida's last event and am happy to pay for a good event.

    Hmm, £17 is quite alot, what is this for, when it's previously been free?

    The payment is £7 by Paypal and £10 at the door, but ou probabley wanted to ask the organser for this.

    I am only a fellow organiser for New Waves Biz Circle Kingston. Hope to see you there.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
