The Houston Rodeo. Great restaurants. Diversity. A booming energy industry and the country’s number one job creator.
NASA. The University of Houston. Beyonce. Oh yes, and the Houston Texans ( Don’t argue with me). These are just a few of the 1,000,000 reasons that Houston is the greatest city. In the world. And I’m not just saying that because I’m a native Houstonian. I’m saying it because it is a statistical true fact (according to myself).
Besides the fact that our office here at LyntonWeb is based in the heart of Houston, we also have some great places for inbound marketers to get together and discuss blogging, websites, and conversion rates. Oh my!
So whether you’re a Houstonian and looking for people to discuss your unhealthy obsession with inbound marketing with, or you’re visiting (and you've decide you love it and want to move here), here are 4 great Houston marketing meetups you can join:
