There are countless ways to find marketing advice locally or on the internet. Alas, when you are advertising products and services that appeal to an alternative subculture the mentors out there are going to have 1 or 2 of the following responses:
1. Smile & nod with a look of terror on their faces.
2. Eyes glaze over as you explain what you do.
3. Get really enthusiastic about what you do and then offer advice that is 10 years out of date.
I have had all three of these happen to me.
This is why I offer specialized marketing assistance for anyone from goths to gamers but I also started Professional Networking for Freaks & Geeks.
If you’re not finding solutions through the traditional channels, or just aren’t comfortable talking to a “Karen” about what you do, hit me up.
