From Madrid’s Meetup Leader — Angel G Zinsel

“We run different kinds of meetups based on the preferences of the group and normally vote during the meetups. The topics are chosen by the members this is important since it produces engagement and participation. For me, the best moments are after the main speech, during the more interactive part, like seeing the reaction of the group, listening to their questions on the topic of the day and to their recommendations for tools that will enrich their interaction with Elementor. 

The best part of leading a local Elementor community is seeing how it matures and grows. It’s like magic. Communities are about giving. When you understand this and practice it, great things will happen inside you and around you. Believe me, or even better, do it.”

What the Community Had to Say

Santiago Alonso, a community member of the Madrid meetup group had this to say:

“If I need to summarize my experience with the Elementor Meetups in Madrid using only one word I’d say: GROW.

  • Grow my knowledge with every interesting meeting.
  • Grow my network, by meeting new colleagues.
  • And even grow my business. I’ve already signed 2 projects with a web agency that I met at this meetup.”

This what the Aba meetup leader — Jethro Theo Paul, had to say: 

“We held our first Elementor Aba meetup. Honestly, I must say that it was a great experience for the participants including myself and my co-organisers. We started by introducing ourselves, we talked about the stuff we do, our level of experience with WordPress and what we’re expecting from the meetup. We continued by introducing WordPress CMS so that people who were just hearing about web design for the first time could easily grab what Elementor was all about.

We then discussed Elementor and its benefits for the modern web designer and marketer. And then we designed a website right there in front of the participants. They kept shouting in amazement at how easy it was to use the tool. The meetup featured networking among participants, live practicals, a Q&A session, individual help with setting up Elementor and, of course, light refreshments. Thank you Elementor for giving me the opportunity to serve my community! With love from all of us at Elementor Aba”.

“The event was well organized in a nice co-working space with a laid-back atmosphere. The organizers were extremely welcoming and punctual. I found a tribe of digital strategists, freelancers, entrepreneurs, in short, people who inspire, who lead, and who are passionate about what they create. I’m not only talking about the speakers but the guests as well. It’s a community worth investing your time in.

I learned a lot about Elementor and now, instead of outsourcing the creation of my landing page, I feel motivated to create one on my own. I was so happy to be there.”

Our Penang meetup leader Julian Song had this to say: 

“I’m a WordPress Penang meet-up organizer and I was getting several questions about Elementor during regular WordPress meet-ups. For this reason, I became an Elementor meet-up leader. Our first meet-up was fun, and we got people from different fields with a significant age gap. They heard about how easy it was to build a website with Elementor and wanted to learn more. I will be planning for the next meet-up, and it will surely help the local Elementor community.”
