Twitter handle: @punemarketers
FB Page: fb.com/punemarketers
Who runs these meetups?Every meetup sees 4-5 organizing team members and usually the attendance runs in to 40 to 50 per meetup. A meetup's preparation starts at least a month in advance with promotions, agenda setting, speaker outreach and selection, ppt preparation and ppt curation, industry outreach, organizing tasks etc.
What is the objective of this group?Knowledge sharing, learning, bringing talented panel of speakers each time to share latest industry updates
How will I come to know about upcoming meetups.Email alertsMeetup announcementsTwitter announcements
How do you sustain it commercially?Group members have been putting money from their own pockets since its inception.If meetups are at place like MCCIA, ICC Trade towers, we charge to cover the expenses. Excess money is put back in to the group for further expenses.
Whats in it for me?Make connections with industry, learn latest tools and techniques, attend InDepth meetups on all-things-digital-marketing and contribute to give back to the society
There is also a group on fb by the same name Pune Digital Marketers
The meetups are interactive in nature. Every new meetup gives opportunities to know words and terms never before heard, learn new things, share what you know with others without reservations or holding it back.
Nobody is going to say that hey I charge an x amount for consulting. They will just share. This is an informal group even though we conduct InDepth meetups. We are on WhatsApp.
