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.
