What we're about
This group is for SEO and digital marketing professionals in the Austin area interested in grabbing drinks and talking shop.
Often, having an in-depth conversation about SEO or higher-level web marketing with the average professional is impossible without excessive explanations or their eyes slowly glossing over.
The aim here is to create a fun, casual meetup for SEOs interested in talking shop, tactics, troubleshooting, the business side of SEO, etc. without having to endure a painfully basic talk beforehand.
While all skill levels are welcome, we'd like to keep this to SEO and web professionals (75%+ of what you do). Learning is at the core of a meetup like this, but we're not teaching basics or doing training.
• If you identify as an inbound marketer, this is not the meetup you're looking for. We specialize in real marketing that moves the needle rather than pie in the sky, feel-good garbage.
• If you're deathly afraid of links and have disavowed more links than you've built in the past year (and you don't operate in casino/pharma/payday areas) this is most likely not the meetup for you.
• If you're looking to get a free one-on-one SEO consultation (or a many-to-one consult), hire an SEO so they can do a good job. Getting out-of-context tips for free without having a solid grounding in the ongoings of an industry is more risk than reward. This sort of approach is ultimately what causes people to jump on trends late when the risk is greatest and competitive advantage is minimal.
SEO & web professionals all creeds/hats are welcome and encouraged to come.
This is a commercial-free meetup so if you come hawking services, you will be shunned ;)
Looking forward to meeting everyone and putting a few back.
