For the last half year, we’ve been focusing on and encouraging community within our business. This means our team to you and vice versa. But we’re also trying to encourage community to community interaction.
Throughout the year, we try to post our team travel schedule and do live events so that we can meet you face-to-face.
So with that in mind, we decide to start an iThemes Connect section in our forum to provide the opportunity for you to meet each other (especially if you’re in the same city).
The idea to encourage local networking groups to form was demonstrated through one of our awesome customer – Rick Knox – who started an iThemes Builder Users Group in Las Vegas.
Here’s some things you can do to rally local users groups in your city:
- Post your city and introduce yourself in the forum — we’ve heard several customers being located together in Buffalo, Chicago and New York City (and obviously Las Vegas) … post a comment to the iThemes Connect forum with your city and see who else is there that you can meet and form local groups
- Use Meetup.com to help organize it — Rick used Meetup here … you can do the same format
- Let us know how we can resource you — as much as we can, we’d love to help you get local groups together and network … if time and audience allows, we could arrange special webinar presentations or demos. Just let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
