SEO Grail's Inaugural Meetup @ Center City
Monday, March 19, 2007 10:30 PM
I'd like to thank all of you who have joined the SEO Grail effort. The core objective of this meetup is to help all interested in the search marketing domain to exchange ideas and help each other with cross business opportunities. Good news is we're off to a flying start thanks to an awesome mix of folks that have joined (knowledge limited to brief intro) this group.
I also want to remind you, our landmark first meetup is on Mar 21st (Wed) at 7pm and the venue is Ten Stone @ South St. & 21st crossing (www.tenstone.com). I have already called and made arrangements such that 12 -15 of us can be comfortable.
Three primary objectives of the first meetup are:
2. Exchange suggestions for group activities aimed at spreading knowledge of Search Marketing and other Interactive Marketing techniques. Most college students are not sufficiently informed about this emerging marketing medium. Colleges in general are yet to integrate SEM into their curriculum. Ex: Potentially we could organize SEM forums focused on specific industries every alternate month.
3. Discuss ideas to harness the collective intelligence and knowledge of SEO Grail members on a platform in a structured manner. Ex. starting a group blog with shared ownership and participation. If this is agreeable to all members then, we'll need to decide on the next steps (name, categories, responsibilities and logistics).
Thanks once again for your interest and participation and I'm looking forward to meeting all of you on Wednesday. Again, I would request others who are yet to decide to make it for this inaugural SEO Grail meetup to extent possible.
Btw: Don?t forget your appetite behind?..especially beer lovers.
