Your Meetup Pro Network is growing—we’re here to ensure you find *all* of your people.
Optimize your group topics
Meetup uses topics to surface your groups and events to the right members.
Your group can have a maximum of 15 topics. Select as many relevant topics as possible. Each topic should accurately describe your group in a word or two. Interested members are more likely to find your group if you use a broad or suggested topic. (For instance, "photography" instead of a specific type of photography.)
Topics can be updated at any time. Review your topics regularly to ensure they accurately reflect your group's activities.

Improve your position in Meetup's search results
When members search for an event on Meetup, we'll show them events that match their interests. You can ensure that your events are shown to interested members by putting a relevant keyword in your event's title and description.
For example, if you're hosting a coding event, make sure the word "coding" is in the event title.
When writing your event description, be concise and specific. Include your relevant keyword at least twice in your description. The more you use a searchable keyword, the easier it will be for members to find your event.
Host new events regularly
Keep a cadence of events on the calendar—it makes it easier for potential members to join your group and get involved right away.
Even if your group has one clear directive or goal (e.g. yoga), change things up sometimes by scheduling unique events. As a Pro customer, you can create a variety of event templates to help you or your local organizers quickly put together a new member mixer, a happy hour—whatever your community needs! Scheduling a laid-back event for socializing:
- Makes your community more approachable for new members
- Inspires more veteran members to share new event ideas
- Keeps more events on the calendar
Building a solid leadership team for your community is key to your success and growth. If you have multiple groups, select local organizers to help you manage the day-to-day responsibilities for each group in your network.
By collaborating with your leadership team, you'll:
- Empower your team members
- Create a more diverse community
- Foster a sense of unity and shared goals
- Ensure continuity and sustainability in your network
