Advertising


There is a default Teachmeet logo on the UK wiki and there is an Irish version on this wiki here.

If you are organising a Teachmeet aimed at an audience that it is new to the concept, you will have to advertise it well and use word of mouth to ensure success. As people attend and get the Teachmeet buzz, it is far easier for proceeding Teachmeets. Don’t be too desolate if you don’t get a large crowd. The first Teachmeet was so small it was able to sit around two tables in an Edinburgh pub.

Remember to set up Registration page prior to creating your poster and use link on advertising.
