Success: First Ever Mautic Meetup

Mautic Meetup Detroit - Free and Open Source Marketing Automation

When Mautic hit the scene, just months ago, it took the Internet Marketing Automation space by storm. Not only was it a new alternative to Mailchimp, Aweber, Hubspot and the other tools internet marketers use, but it is also 100% free. Mautic also compiles applications like LeadPages with your lead cultivation tools for a single complete package.

Joomla Detroit, along with many others identified the power and potential that Mautic held for just about every website. As such, Son Koral, Organizer of the Joomla User Group reached out to good friend and Joomla confidant, David Hurley, founder of Mautic, Joomla Community Manager and Open Souce Evangalist to partner up for the first ever organized Mautic Meetup.

The meetup was held at Space360, LLC in Royal Oak, MI and David presented via Google Plus hangout. After quickly recapping the Introduction to Mautic presentation from the January 28th Webinar, David quickly dove into the administration section of Mautic, featuring highlights of the application, including CRM and Social Media integrations. He also demo'ed email lead lists, campaigns, forms and landing pages.

The presentation was recieved by bloggers, small business owners, integrators and developers that used not just Joomla!, but Wordpress, Drupal and other content management systems. Each attendee received free goodies from Mautic and were personally welcomed by the JUG Detroit organizer as they arrived.

The benefits of using Mautic were clear, and the interest level was high. Attendees were excited to try Mautic for their own sites and saw how invaluable it was to running a successful online business.

Mautic is the first ever open source marketing automation platform which gives every business the ability to create powerful marketing strategies, manage lead nurturing, and monitor site visitors. Perhaps most importantly, Mautic is available at no cost. A completely free marketing automation platform!

Don't worry if you missed this meetup because David and Son are planning to continue the Mautic meetups as a separate meetup group, to be announced in March, 2015.

  • GDPR Overview: Decrypting the regulation in series

    Over the last decades, the web has become significantly more social and made communication among companies and users much easier. At the same time, terms such as “privacy” were in many cases underestimated because of the abundance of public shared personal data. Users are dynamically contributing to the content production of the web, and they often get involved in a “game” where their personal data becomes the actual product. It is not unusual for a user to misunderstand that his personal data is information that could be publicly shared without any special protection.

    The Joomla World Conference 2017 in Rome was a great moment to discuss the future of the project, which... surprise… will, for the most part, have a big "Joomla 4" stamp on it. In the context of the conference, I was invited to participate in the Marketing Sprint, kicking it off with a full day of meeting with the leaders and members responsible for the launch of the Joomla 4 marketing campaign. Together we brainstormed and discussed ideas, reviewed predictions and adjusted expectations to better fit realistic goals.
