One thing that they don’t let you know is that after your meetup group is all done and you have spent an hour or two setting it up, it will go through a very tight review. These review guys are border line insane. I submitted my meetup 3 times before my 4th one was approved. The rejections were pretty much the same each time. They would send a generic
“Unfortunately, we’re unable to pre-approve groups for announcement. I recommend that when you re-create your group, you utilize your group’s description and welcome message to clearly convey that the group is intended to be a community. For more information, you can consult our group community guidelines here:”
Then they provide you with a link that you probably have already read. Just thinking about it gets me agravated again. So, I wanted to post this tip to help those of you out there that are running into the same problem. Here is what I did.
That’s it! Hopefully they approve your group. Mine was approved the next day, which I will talk about.
Growing a website is very difficult. There are so many places that we can improve and I am not just talking about marketing. I started OC Growing Websites to get together with website owners who are running into the same struggles. We just had our first meeting and it was a great success. We had about 20 people attend and got to hear from everyone. There were some really good suggestions thrown out and I am excited for the next meeting. If you are in the Orange County area, please join us and learn how to grow your website.
Many people are very traditional and want to send out invitations and save the dates. I don’t know about you guys, but I get these in the mail and say “oh that’s nice” and throw them away. It might be because I am a guy, but I am thinking that there are others like that as well. I recently found out that those invitations can cost hundreds of dollars and hours of time.
There are some free wedding websites out there like the knot and ewedding that offer some good resources for getting started with your wedding. We don’t really recommend using them for your website because they only offer templated out do it yourself designs. That would be cool if they used nice templates, but they don’t. They are pretty tacky, take some time to create, and not so elegant. Another great resource for inspiration is Pinterest, as you probably know. A lot of wedding coordinators will ask to view a board that you have created to get an idea of what you like and your style of the perfect wedding.
Why not send an email for save the date and have a website for your invitation? Here are a few benefits.
With all this said. Dreaming Blue is offering an amazing deal of $1200 for you wedding website. This includes:
We hope you choose us to help create the website of your dreams for your special day.
I am so excited to announce my new office location in beautiful San Juan Capistrano. This means more space for all our tech gadgets, more elbow room, and more designing. I also plan on having client meetings here. There is a great downtown area that we can take you for a bite to eat. Here is a list of places on Yelp.
