What is Rochester Digital Marketing?
Rochester Digital Marketing (ROCDM) is a community of individuals, businesses, agencies, and organizations. We support exploration, understanding, and mastery of digital channels for the Rochester NY area.
We provide information, practical experience, discussion, learning opportunities, and community for people interested or working in the field of digital marketing – Areas of interest include effective website design, search engine optimization (SEO), content marketing, email marketing, social media, strategy and more!
ROCDM began as a relaunch of the “Rochester SEO and Internet Marketing” meetup group. That group was started in May 2015 by Craig Tuttle (Craig Tuttle Marketing). Due to work commitments, the group did not get regular meetings scheduled and eventually came up for renewal.
Interest in the group was still solid, so management was picked up by Lee Hurst (Helpfullee.com) on August 18, 2016. The group was rebranded as the “Rochester Digital Marketing” meetup and began regular monthly meetings is September 2016.
Since the relaunch, the Meetup has grown steadily from 60 to over 110 members. In addition to regular meetups, the group increased its resources. We created a new private Facebook group for member discussions and began posting notes and documents online. The “Community Challenge” was picked up as a focal point for the group to grow experience, demonstrate capabilities and help underserved organizations that could use digital marketing help and expertise.
We began creation of the ROCDM website in December of 2016. The purpose of the site is to be a resource and raise the visibility of digital marketing in the region. This site is used as a hub for campaigns, resources, and promotion or events and sponsors.
Join us as we build a community of digital marketers, entrepreneurs, business and non-profit organizations.
