AWeber Hosts a Book Tour

One of the things we love about our office is the large classroom that we built for it.

It’s been great for holding “AWeber University” classes (where our team members share their expertise on specific areas of AWeber, email marketing topics, providing outstanding customer support and more with the rest of us) as well as project development and brainstorming sessions.

These are great, but one main reason we built the classroom was to have a space where we could bring in businesses and members of our community to learn and to share ideas. But for nearly a year, we held off on hosting an event. 🙁

Recently, we found an opportunity to share our home with a customer and members of our local community – and we’re glad we did.

AWeber Customer Chris Guillebeau Includes AWeber On His Book Tour

I met Chris last year in Washington, DC when we shot a video together on building community:

We stayed in touch, and a while back he asked if he could host a stop on his book tour here.

We hammered out details and before you knew it, nearly 40 Philadelphia-area fans converged on the AWeber offices for a talk, book signing and chance to swap ideas.

Photos From The Event

We snapped a few photos from the 2-hour event and posted them to our Facebook page and Flickr account.

Here are a few photos:

Thanks to All Who Attended!

We’re excited to have helped Chris on his tour, and we’re grateful to everyone who came out and helped us break in our classroom with our first meetup.

Hopefully this’ll be the first of many great events at AWeber!

Do you hold small business and/or entrepreneurial talks, Meetups, etc. in the Philadelphia area? Interested in holding one at AWeber? Contact us with details about your organization and what you’d like to use the space for.

    Hey Justin – sounds like a great time! I remember chatting about this with you at Cuba Libre.

    My book (Take Action! Revise Later) is coming out next month (10.10.10), and it features some Aweber and list building strategies. Perhaps a book tour stop in the Philly suburbs is in order this fall 🙂

    p.s. I’m a big fan of your crew doing events. They are excellent teachers and that’s why people stick with Aweber for so long!

    Indeed, thank you for having me for the introduction to Chris and to welcome guests. Although I find it interesting there was no mention in the post.
