You know how every brand in the world is telling you that they’re there for you right now?
That they care. That they are by your side?
As well-intentioned as these messages are… aren’t they all starting to look the same? If I get one more ‘A message from our CEO’ message of reassurance, I think I’ll have to start tearing out what little hair of mine remains.
But here is the thing. We do care, and we are there for you. Everything we’ve ever done has been about creating a helpful, lovely community of amazing marketing people. I hope you feel that as much as we mean it.
But how do we make that message cut through when everyone is saying the same stuff?
Well, I guess one way to do it is to present things differently. Do something fun and a bit silly.
Like, for example, asking Sean Paul (chart-topping rapper who has worked with the likes of Beyonce, The Saturdays, Clean Bandit, Sia and many more of the world’s most famous acts – ask your nearest teenager) to send your community a message, just to say hey.
Yes. I think that will do it…
No, I don’t think he knows or cares, what The Marketing Meetup is, but isn’t he a nice man?
🙂 Stay safe.
Love, all of us.

How I grew my newsletter to 38,000 people in a year (and how you can do it too) – Harry Dry, Founder of Marketing Examples
May 2019. Harry wrote his first marketing article.
A year and a half later his email list hit 38k.
No ads. No connections. No existing audience. The newsletter grew because Harry learnt how to push my content round the internet. In this talk he explains the process.
A strong personal brand is something people say you need all the time, but rarely tell you how. That’s where Ash and Claudia come in.
So, what is the difference between management and leadership? Penny Ferguson, Founder of The Living Leader, explains.
How to be a great leader: Penny Ferguson, Founder of The Living Leader & Catherine Newman, CMO of Manchester United

Linkedin just launched its new stories feature. Here is what Linkedin stories are, and what we think it means for marketers.
I thought I’d share some thoughts on the things I’ve learned about Linkedin after getting 2,000,000 views in 10 months.
Landing pages are the first impression of your website. Landing pages should be easy to read, simple, attractive, and have relevant keywords and Call To Actions. But that isn’t all.
All marketers love reading lists. So here are The Marketing Meetup community’s recommendations for books you should be reading to become smarter.
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?
