The Marketing Meetup: Newcastle is a positive and non-salesy group for the brilliant marketers of Newcastle to come together, listen and learn.
Events run once a month and feature two expert speakers, talking stuff about marketing, or at the very least tangential to marketing. All this is bookended by the most informal and happy networking you will ever come across.
There are three values that unite us: listening over shouting, saying hello to everyone, and being positively lovely (that's all about giving first, and treating people as people - not job titles).
We're part of the larger community known as 'The Marketing Meetup', which has positively lovely events across the UK for astonishing marketeers. Podcasts, blog posts, our closed Facebook group and all our other events can be found at themarketingmeetup.com
Anyone is welcome to come along, as you come to listen, are prepared to say hello and be positively lovely :).
Everyone explains that standing out is critical. They get your creative circuits firing. Your future depends on it. Nothing matters more.
But how do you *actually* do it is another story. Yes, there are some books around positioning for brands with big ad budgets or for B2B software companies, but what about the rest? How do you actually do it if the product or service you're selling isn't remarkable in itself? How do you actually do it if you want to start small and make just one of your blog posts stand out?
