A canteen in Cambridge, England, and a self-dubbed ‘nervous networker’: These were the ingredients that led to the birth of The Marketing Meetup (TMM) in 2016 when founder Joe Glover organized a casual event over food. What began as a marketing get-together has today evolved into an almost 25,000-strong community—and its members are treated to weekly online events that have featured the likes of Catherine Newman, Chief Marketing Officer at Manchester United, and Harry Dry, the brains behind newsletter favourite Marketing Examples. For more intimate discussions on all things marketing-related, turn to its Facebook community: Here, entry-level and experienced marketers exchange advice and recommendations on industry tools, career paths, and topics spanning content marketing, brand strategy, email marketing, and growing a business. One bonus: a monthly jobs thread for members looking to hire or be hired: I also like that TMM emphasizes and encourages positivity—something that its members respect and deliver on, from what I’ve gleaned. 6. Dave Gerhardt Marketing Group (DGMG) Community type: Facebook group Who it’s for: B2B marketers Cost: US$10/month; cancel anytime (Once payment is complete, you’ll get an invite to join the private group via email) Sign-up link: Website Member count: >2.6k Dividing the workload like this whatsapp number list allows both the vendor and the affiliate to focus on their strengths. The improvements are similar on desktop and mobile. Most of the focus in 2021 was on mobile results. Dave Gerhardt is something of a micro-influencer in the marketing space, and for good reason: He led growth at conversational marketing platform Drift from the time of its founding in 2015, went on to helm marketing efforts at SaaS tool Privy, then returned to Drift as Chief Branding Officer. Naturally, you’d expect the seasoned marketer to take things a step further—by making a brand of his name. The DGMG Facebook group comprises a small but helpful community of paying subscribers, many of whom are employees at Slack, TikTok, HubSpot, and more. So expect quality discussions and sharings on copy and content strategy to branding, social media, design (UI/UX), and recommendations for jobs, marketing books, and software.
