Meetups are a great way to meet local entrepreneurs. Networking with local business and/or tech people can pay off big time. You'll get to learn from experienced people who know the ins and outs of the industry. There are plenty of ways to find a local meetup. Your first destination should be Google to search "your town __ meetup".

When you attend your first Meetup, here are a few things you can do to make the most out your experience:

  • Cross promote online – Exchange coupons with them for future mailings or simply write about each other’s businesses in your emails.
  • Tweet and share each other’s content – Going back to the rule about business karma – help your local online business buddies by sharing their content online on sites like Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin. They will repay you for it by doing the same.
  • Guest blog – One great way to spread awareness of who you are and to get some SEO (Search Engine Optimization) benefit while doing it, is to write guest blog post for other people’s business blogs. 

This weeks showcased non-profit founded by John Touchstone, is Pike's Peak Professionals/Community. Pike's Peak Professionals is for all those professional, socially active, business and community minded individuals to get together and socialize meanwhile helping 'The Community' a new local non-profit.
