  • Meet and Greet other Product People - Hales Brewery Fremont

    Hales Brewery - Foyer

    We are having our first Meetup in 2017. Come and meet and greet other people who share your love of the physical product. From there we can figure out what we'd like future topics to be with the potential of guest speakers and other things. I see potential topics to include sourcing, funding, product development, marketing, sales, retail challenges, etc. We will have our meetup at Hales in Fremont but will decide as a group when and where to have the next meetup. Please come with your ideas, challenges, successes and hopefully we can create a network of Product people to help all of us grow our businesses and bring ideas to fruition! Note: I set this from 5:30 to 8 but there is no need to stay the whole time, but wanted to catch people who might come late as the more participation the better!

  • Product People Talk Product, Sales & Marketing - Hales Brewery Fremont

    Do you have a great product or idea but have no idea how to sell it? Have you tried things in the past that didn't work and feel frustrated? Well 24 Hour Product People is here to help. We had a great first meetup last year and I got a ton of feedback on the topics that were most interesting for us to cover in our meetup. Sales & Marketing of products was one of the most requested topics...we will focus mostly on Sales and sharing our experiences. A little different from last time - we will have some time to introduce ourselves to the group and share a little about what has worked and what hasn't related to sales. My hope is to also have an expert there who has done product sales and/or marketing before so if you have any suggestions on a speaker, let me know. Note: Please don't feel like you have to have a completed product or even an idea to join us as I think you'll get a ton out of learning about how you might sell your product down the way....it's a great place to start! I set this from 6 to 9 but there is no need to stay the whole time, but wanted to catch people who might come late as the more participation the better! I usually come around 5:30 so come early if you like. Thanks Leslie Pierson Founder & Creator of GoodHangups P.S. We plan to move this meetup to other areas around Seattle in the future so if you have any venue suggestion send them my way.
