The Melbourne meetup was born out of the fact that the David had taken a role based in Melbourne and think that there didn’t seem to be much happening within the SEO/SEM community so it would make sense to expand the group. There had always been a question of how it would be possible to expand the group beyond Brisbane and this move made it possible.
The group regularly features entrepreneurs, web developers, social media & search specialists from small agency to large corporate organisations all looking to drive conversation and discussion on what factors might be annoying or stumping them in achieving the results they want online.
So on the first Wednesday or Thursday of every month head along, sit around and have a chat with others in your industry.
