If you're interested in setting up a real estate investor meetup, this draft document will provide you with an overview of how to do it. According to James Orr, the first step is to create a new group on Once you've done that, you can start customizing your group settings to fit your needs.

When creating your group, make sure to choose a name that accurately reflects your group's focus. James suggests using your city's name in the title to make it easier for people to find. You should also provide a description of the group, including what attendees can expect from the meetings and how often they will occur.

To encourage people to join your group, James recommends offering them something of value for registering. You can create a free download, such as a deal analysis spreadsheet, that requires attendees to provide their email address. This way, you'll have a backup way to contact them if Meetup fails or changes.

When setting up your group, you should also consider your custom member label, which is what you'll call your attendees. James refers to his members as "real estate group members," but you can choose whatever label makes sense for your group. Additionally, you can add topics that attendees can search for when looking for groups to join.

To maintain the integrity of your group, James encourages you to set up profile questions that new members must answer before joining. These questions can help you weed out spammers and get a better sense of attendees' goals and interests.

Finally, James recommends setting up a welcome message that new members will receive when they join your group. This message should include a link to your free download and any other resources you want to share with attendees.

By following these steps, you can create a successful real estate investor meetup that attracts like-minded individuals and provides valuable resources to its members. Good luck!
