Officially in the books, Tulsa HUG conducted the first open door event to marketers and users of Hubspot in the Tulsa community.
"Even though we had little time to promote, we were glad at the turnout"
We started the event around 6pm and was able to connect and discuss some very important subjects that serve as the reason HUG groups are formed.
TOP 3 Takeaways of the event:
Putting a face to a name
Finding others in Tulsa to share the actual inbound marketing practices in their workplace!
Brainstorming possible solutions to challenges in current projects
Just listen to a recent comment by a member of the Ann Arbor HUG Group in a recent blog:
"This past October at the Ann Arbor HUG, Marisa Smith and Bonnie Valentine presented personas and segmentation in a way that enabled me to finally see how our nurturing would benefit both the dealer and the consumer. "
"The beauty of HUGs is that you are surrounded by like-minded people who are enthusiastic to learn through group activities and discussions. During the brainstorming exercise in our HUG meet-up, my group members pointed out how many people I was forgetting. We were able to build out numerous personas and content segmentations in just five minutes.
Not only was I better able to understand who I was trying to reach, but I was also able to build out a content strategy with how I was going to reach them. Each persona preferred a different type of content and on a different topic.
Brainstorming and creating buyer personas can be a great exercise in getting to know your audience. Tap into your different resources, colleagues, or even a HUG to get a different perspective of your buyer persona's story." (full article)
