Meetup.com is a great platform for creating, running and building communities.
I use it all the time, and it’s helped me really take off in my business over the past two years.
I get people nervously asking me how to get their own Meetups going. They think they need 100+ people like what I normally get at my events, the top room at the Novotel or the Pullman, and a world class presentation.
This is completely UNTRUE!
One incredible easy format is to just have a Social Gathering. It can be an easy 5 – 15 people, and you just hang out. Everyone can buy their own food & drinks and you just have a great time.
I did this the other night at the Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour and it just worked.
It was a mixture of Social, Business and highly rated.
My advice and thinking? Meetup Social Events are a great place to start. Easy and powerful. Start small and work your way up.
Thanks for the read, love your work and happy Meetups friends.
