If you're still not sure about joining us for our July 30th 2015 #SDHUG, we've listed a few good reasons why you really need to attend:


1. Our venue this for the event is one of the most beautiful restaurants in San Diego. Stone Brewing Co.’s Liberty Station location will make you feel as trendy as ever, and you’ll leave the event wanting to visit again.

2. The drinks will be stellar and local. Stone Brewing Co. is the largest brewery in Southern California, and they have an expansive collection of craft beers and other drinks.

3. Appetizers will be served, and since they’re coming from the venue itself we doubt they’ll be anything but fantastic. (You’ll basically be getting boatloads of free artisan food)

4. Our speakers are seriously knowledgeable and widely respected. Steve Haase and Melodie Tao have spoken at events all over the US, so this isn’t their first rodeo. They know their stuff and they want to teach you!




5. Melodie Tao (aka Marketing Melodie) will be discussing “Why Inbound Marketing & Social Media Are Best Friends” and giving you a variety of cutting-edge info on how your business can utilize social media. (Hint: It’s not by adding 12 emojis to the end of every tweet)

6. Steve Haase is going to break down "Mastering Inbound Sales: Technical Tips and Selling Strategies for the New Buying Process". You'll learn how to calm the friction between marketing and sales & prove marketing's value to all stakeholders, how great customer service can become your biggest sales tool, and what assets should marketing create to best equip sales reps.

7. Our speakers will be addressing your specific questions. Melodie and Steve will be taking audience inquiries and joining the crowd after their presentations to chat with you! If you’ve got any burning questions about marketing this event will answer them.

8. You’ll get to connect with a wide variety of other marketing professionals in a casual and relaxed environment. This event won’t be your average board room meeting.

9. It’s the best excuse to leave early your boss has ever heard. The conversation will probably end with “Can I come too?”. Don’t miss out on the best #SDHUG event yet.
