Marketing Secrets and Hacks for Startups

Our last meetup was a great success, a 5/5 rating. In it we discussed what it takes to start a company - from day 1; wouldn't have much success if people don't know about it! Enter our next meetup: we will discuss how to bring your product to market with as little budget as possible. 

We will interview a panel of three experts, specializing in various parts of the marketing stack:

1. SEO/SEM (Search Engine Optimization/Marketing) 

2. Email Marketing

3. Social media / content creation

You will be able to ask questions, meet them, and walk away with some concrete tactics to get your product or idea out there, whether for testing or selling.

    Ditto with the rest: very helpful and lots of useful insights. To be more specific:
    1. Highly appreciate the real world statistics/cases shared (e.g., 20-30% vs. 1-2% open rate on organic vs. rented/purchased list, minimum $1-2k/mo budget for Adwords to start being useful, 3-4 months continuous effort before social media start to really gain traction, etc)
    2. All the tools shared by the panel. Waiting for the promised complete list to be emailed. :)
    3. Sales tips. Thanks Raul!

    Wish list:
    1. The workshop idea
    2. Sales
