I've noticed that a lot of you guys and gals are local DFW area entrepreneurs. I think its great that I have so many resources here in my own back yard. I asked myself this morning "Self do you think any of these DFW business owners would be willing/interested in helping you with your endeavors?"
Ok, so maybe thats a stretch, but here's the straight deal. I see posts all of the time from people in the DFW area. Marketing pros, finance guys, tax professionals, web developers! All right here in DFW. So because of this I'm putting in the call to all of you in the DFW area who might be interested in working along side with me in my business.
Here is what I do: I operate an entertainment and events guide called CatchAClue.net. The goal of the site is to help people find things to do, not only in DFW but nation wide. The premise is this. We allow anyone who is hosting an event whether it be Nightlife (Bands, Live music, Karaoke) Arts (Plays, Museums, Art Exhibits) Sports (Golf tournaments, Poker games, Basketball) Special Events (Concerts, Expos, Gun Shows), Kids Events (Parties, Fairs, Disney on Ice etc), Community Events (Church fund raisers, Town meetings) to post a flyer for these events. People can then browse the flyers and images, by city and date. When they find one that looks interesting, simply clicking on it will reveal all of the associated details, date time, links, cost, etc etc, there is even an integrated Google Map.
Here is what I need: Professional Marketing help, Good Content, Word of Mouth, Technology help, Corporate Tax Help, Capital, Investors, Sales etc.
Here is what I can do: In return for services I can offer the following in no specific order: Cheap online advertising (possibly free), Equity stake in the company, Future Capital Arangement, Sales Commissions, whatever I'm open to work with anyone.
I think I have a really great thing going here. It is working and it is growing quite rapidly and I think that is my problem. I'm trying to do it all myself and its becomming too much.
Ok so i figured Id put this our there to all of the local DFW people. Lets work together and capitalize on each others talents to make this a big thing. Like I said I'm open so if you have something to offer lets talk about it. My latest publicity stunt is to offer local businesses a month of free ad space in exchange for a link their site and some word of mouth publicity. Let me know.
