I’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 4,200 5,200 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.
