Kelly Stewart hiking at Radnor lakeI’m Kelly Stewart, and I run two meetups in Tennessee: Nashville Hiking Meetup and Chattanooga Hiking Meetup. Because of the success of the former (3,800 members and average of five events per week as of this writing), I get many requests for advice on managing and promoting a meetup. This blog is meant to be the documentation of success tips — what has worked, what hasn’t — and applies to more than just meetups.

Many of the tips are applicable to overall social networking, promoting conventional websites, email marketing, event promotion, and partnering with like-minded organizations.

Hope you enjoy.
