Digital marketing is rapidly changing every day, especially with the emergence and growing popularity of certain technologies. Instead of living in the past, stay up-to-date with digital marketing best practices and trends without having to leave Philadelphia! There are so many Philly digital marketing meetups going on, so how do you know what ones are right for you? We took a look at the upcoming July events, and we created a list of some of the events we’d recommend for Philly digital marketers:
Digital Marketing 101 (June 28 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.) – I know, this course isn’t technically in June, but this free Philly digital marketing meetup is designed to be perfect for people with varying levels of knowledge. After a half hour of networking and snacks, WeSpeak Easy will take you on a journey through marketing basics, including persona creation, the buyer’s journey, strategy and tactics, and analytics. There will also be time set aside for answering specific questions or problems you may be facing. This event will be held at 2424 Studios in Fishtown, so you can walk, take the train, or drive.
DigitalHack Marketing Series (July 4 from 1 to 2 p.m.) – if you don’t have time for in-person workshops and conferences, try a digital marketing webinar on for size. This webinar focuses on the digital marketing and advertising techniques you should be using to grow your business. Participants can interact with each other and the presenter, so it’s the perfect way to troubleshoot real-life problems you may be having. They only accept 10 participants, so claim your seat while there’s still some left.

There are tons of excellent Philly digital marketing networking events, such as this free SEO and Digital Marketing Happy Hour! Held at Opa on 13th and Sansom Street, this is a very casual way to meet other local digital marketers and discuss best practices. Events like these are always fun because you will become more connected with your local industry, get first hand advice, and enjoy some drinks and appetizers along the way!
