$10 @ THE DOOR, COFFEE AND BREAKFAST SNACKS PROVIDED!
Wish I was in Illinois,...(-:
$10 at the door? This seems more like a BYOC event to me....just sayin'.
@Ryan ODonnell yeah I can see why you'd say that. Based on doing meetups for quite a few years what I learned was that if you don't put a price on it, there's no value to attend it. We charge $10 we get more people.
In the past I've done everything from evening events with free food and drinks (about $100-150+ depending on food and drink) to renting 100 person occupancy basements in restaurants in schaumburg for $1200 a night with food included with sponsors paying $200-300 each to cover the cost (including me paying my $200 or so as well) and over time it seemed like charging a small door fee, regardless of what you get at meeting, increases attendance and the quality of "investor attendees." More people actually doing things than tire kickers we will call it.
Of course I am not an event planner, and I'm sure there's always a better way... and I am open to new ideas, including location/cost/topics and general management of the event.
Last 2 times I hosted a "coffee and cashflow event" I spent around $80 on coffee, donuts, bagels, and the ancillaries that go with it like creamer etc.
I guess if we were meeting at starbucks and everyone paid on their own way I would agree. But with 10 people crowded around a busy starbucks it doesn't seem very conducive to what I think we are trying to achieve....
Of course I'm open to any opinions and thoughts... Do you think the $10 scares attendees away?
Naw man, I should have just kept my opinion to myself. I'm sure you're just trying to give people a solid place to network and see actual deals, which I shouldn't discourage.
I'll definitely try to make it out to one of these.
cool, love to see you out!
