Get MMS at right at home every month!, with lots of Local Community Leads

Join regional user group leaders and MVPs as they share with you how to get the same value you are getting right now from this conference right at home each month. This conference is actually just a big user group run by the same people. These speakers built user groups years ago which have grown into monthly local conferences where they fly in well-known speakers while feeding members food and beer!

You’ll learn how to:

  • Start a new group or grow your own so that it won’t cost you or your members a penny
  • Learn and share information to help you get your job done and excel in it
  • Hold regular meetings where folks get to learn how others get the job done
  • Find sponsors to pay for food & beer for the meetings
  • Get your website going for free
  • Balance sponsor time with non-sales time
  • Expand your membership and find more people
  • Get free Office 365 for your group
  • Get locals to become involved and feel ownership in the group
  • Figure out when and where to meet
  • Decide how often to meet
  • Adapt and grow

You really need to understand the value a local user group can bring to your home town and how it can enhance your standing in the community. You’ll see this session held in a user-group format. No need to wait until next year’s MMS!
