hubspot user groups hugsI have a very personal connection with HubSpot User Groups. It was about a year ago when I met Brain Whalley, who was then HubSpot’s Community Manager, at one of the very first HubSpot User Groups.  The Central Mass HubSpot Group was just founded by Linda Sevier and we met in Weston, MA in March 2010.

About 40 of us met for a couple of hours during one afternoon. We introduced ourselves, had two guest speakers, discussed the group’s purpose, and upcoming meeting agendas.  I could feel everyone's energy and passion for learning more about inbound marketing in the room. It was very exciting!

At the end of the meeting we opened the discussion up so people could ask specific questions. I quickly jumped in and started giving suggestions, answering questions, and was teaching the group ways they could better use HubSpot’s software.

I probably didn’t realize it at the time, but that was the first moment I knew I wanted to become an Inbound Marketing Consultant at HubSpot.

So why should you love HUGs?  First, they’re growing rapidly and provide you with an opportunity to meet other HubSpot users.

Second, you will meet and learn from other very passionate inbound marketers and HubSpot users. Learning in a group setting is extremely powerful and can help you formulate your own marketing ideas and strategies.
