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.

    Last month I attended the Joomla World Conference #JWC17 in Rome, Italy. Since my first JWC visit to Vancouver last year, I've joined a couple of global teams including Showcase, Certification and the Joomla Community Magazine (JCM), where I help out with things like moderation, English-language proof reading and documentation. This year, in addition to the actual conference, I also got to attend some team meetings prior to and during the conference.

    On November 17, the first Alpha for Joomla 4 was released. Whilst this release was intended for developers to check their extensions as soon as possible for their compatibility the Joomla 4 User Interface Team has something nice in store for you. In the last few years, we have been planning, discussing and drafting different concepts of the Joomla 4 backend. First of all: the chance to work on the overall backend user interface is a really big honour for us and we say thank you to all those that welcome us to such a great team. It’s a pleasure to work with such passionate people. Our challenge was to design a backend that mostly fits into the given technical structure of Joomla and to change as much as needed, but as little as possible. We want to invite you to take a ride through the draft of the Joomla[…]
