About last night...Event Marketing tips at Wix

Last night, I attended a fabulous event hosted by Wix. Wix is a cloud-based, drag and drop website building platform with 59 million users in 190 countries.

Each month, Wix hosts a user meetup to educate entrepreneurs on ways to grow their business. This month was all about event marketing- how to make it successful, why you should do it and how to attract sponsors.
