Best Free Alternatives to Meetup?

Best Free Alternatives to MeetupOften Organizers look for free alternatives to meetup.com when they do not get many people to their events, and realize they are paying a high fee for little or no return. Of course, one reason for the low attendance may be no one wants what they are offering!

Sometimes, people want to test their idea first, before making a financial commitment. But paying monthly is even more expensive. So the temptation is to look for a free option.

This post is about why using free sites is not a good idea, and why paying $24/yr at Eventpeg is a low cost and better idea.

What Are the Best Alternatives to Meetup.com?

What Are the Best Alternatives to Meetup.com?The answer to this question depends on what feature of Meetup you are focusing on in your search for a better alternative.

There is no doubt Meetup is the king when it comes to attracting new members to a meetup. They have been operating for over 15 years and have become a household name. Thousands of groups hold meetups across the world every day, and people know they can probably find a group near them that suits their interest.

So why would you even be interested in using something else? What could another site offer that Meetup cannot?

Meet Up Groups Allowed at Eventpeg

Meetup CensorshipOne of the things I had to think about when I created Eventpeg was, what sort of groups should I allow – or if I should even dictate what is acceptable?

It has always amused me that sites such as meetup.com feel they have higher moral principles than the rest of us, and can decide what adults are allowed and not allowed to do.

Sure, they have the right to determine what they allow on their platform – it is theirs after all. But if you don’t like it, then don’t use it. Just because something is well known and has been around for years, doesn’t mean you have no choice but to use it.

Where do you draw the line as to what is “acceptable”?

Eventpeg Alternative to Meetup.com

Press ReleaseMeetup.com is changing the way its website works, much to the dismay of Organizers. As if the high cost of fees were not enough, now Meetup is completely revamping the interface for its website.

Features that have long been used to manage groups are being removed, and an ugly generic interface takes away the customized pages people have spent time creating to showcase their group.

This has been done without consultation with Organizers, and the company is not interested in feedback. It would appear the very people who make Meetup possible in the first place, by paying fees and putting in the hard work, mean nothing to the company.

Eventpeg.com has been developed to bring commonsense back to running a meet-up group, and to value its members as vital assets.
