getgeeked Events vs. The Competition

Once upon a time, your only path to the hearts and minds of consumers was via the press. Well, times have certainly changed. The press remains critical, but to succeed today you also have to engage influencers and enthusiasts directly, build relationships with them, and respond when they reach out to you. The good news is that if you do it well, they will become your most effective marketers. 

We created getgeeked because we felt events could do more to help brands meet these challenges than today’s outdated and overpriced press-only events. How do we accomplish this? How are our events different? We’re glad you asked…
