Hey James Schramko here and I’ve just checked in to a hotel here in Melbourne where I’m visiting a local meetup.
Why do we have local meetups?
Now why do we have local meetups in our SuperFastBusiness community? It’s because this is not a solo sport, this is online marketing. You need to have friends, you need context, you need networks, you need joint ventures, you need suppliers, you need customers.
And a great way to get those things is to come together and use the collective brainstorm of all the other people who are in the community and leverage off each other’s thoughts and ideas.
I come so that I can share ideas, but I also come so that I can listen and find out what our community needs, and then I put that back into the community.
What are meetups?
So what are these meetups? They’re simply a member-organized get-together, usually in a pub or a restaurant, where people actually sit down, have a few drinks, and have discussions.
Now I’ve been to these things all around the world. I’ve been to them in Dubai, and the USA, and the UK, and of course in Australia. So Melbourne and Sydney are quite strong communities. There’s around 30 people go to these meetups. And they happen pretty much every single month. But if I’m travelling in your area, then I’ll make sure that we have a meetup.
Just a few weeks ago, I had a meetup in Sta. Monica and I took our California members out to dinner. So meetups are great to get to; they’re part of SuperFastBusiness membership.
How to setup a local meetup
If you’re a member of SuperFastBusiness membership, go into the local meetup section. Organize to go and meet your peer group at the meetup. You’ll be able to go to a dinner, or have a drink with some other people who know exactly what you’re talking about and it’s not some foreign language, and you’ll get the peer support that’s going to drive you through to the next stage in your business.
I’m James Schramko, thanks so much for watching this, and I hope to see you face to face at a meetup soon.
