    Was browsing the site yesterday and was thinking about it. Maybe a good opportunity for offline marketing?

    Yeah, I've made money there. Great for offline money making. I know several people making good money from it. Set up a group, arrange events/meetings/seminars etc, get paid, go to the bank. I always use it as a site for inspiration for finding niches as well.

    I make about 300 dollars from my meet up from people donating and what not. Its very easy to make cash from the site.

    Hey I've made money with Meetup.com

    I guess it depends on whether you want to hold meetings in real life or not and if you're actually interested in a certain topic as to whether it makes sense to pursue financially.

    The NY TECH meetup for example has 13,000 members - somewhat unusual - but they charge $10 to attend a meeting and usually about 700-1000 people pay. Thats a CRAPLOAD of money to get every month of a year.

    Like, you could live off that.

    Personally I wouldn't go to a meetup group if I knew the organizer had my email address. I think it should be up to the organizer to obtain their members' email addresses at a meetup with a sign up sheet. That way anyone who feels uncomfortable can opt out.

    Wow, I didn't know you could charge for meetings! Doing seminars and whatnot is a great idea, though, especially if you don't have a lot of competition locally. :scratchch
