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 we set up Zoom for Marketing Meetup Webinars

Zoom has become one of The Marketing Meetup’s most important bits of software.

And while we’ve all no doubt set up many a Zoom meeting for the purposes of quizzes and more, learning about how to do it for webinars wasn’t all that easy. So, we thought we’d create a (not short) video, on what the background operation of setting a Zoom webinar looks like. 

How to prove the value of marketing – Daniel Gilbert, Founder & CEO of Brainlabs

This session is relevant because as marketers, it’s not good enough to do something and expect the budget to keep on flowing when you haven’t proven the value of it. This session is important because as marketers, we often do a bad job in marketing ourselves and communicating our role in a company. This session is important, because we have one of the world’s most unique thinkers on marketing in our company for an hour, so by the end, I hope you would have learned something new, had your perspective shifted,

A Marketing Masterclass: Son of a Tailor

Part of the reason I love running The Marketing Meetup is that I love seeing great marketing in action. As Rand Fishkin puts it, ‘marketing done well can be a noble act’, because it matches a ‘need’ to a solution, which ultimately improves someone’s life.
So when a company absolutely markets the sh*t out of me in a compelling way, I can’t help but feel like I want to 1) sit back and clap, and 2) learn as much as I can from them.
