I somehow got myself into art, books and fashion business development... and need help.
If there are experts here: what’s the best way to pitch and get paid for such distribution services in a new (for the client) city?
Unfortunately I think you will find that your niche is far too small for this audience in the discussion board. I suggest instead you use the NETWORK function of CFL and look for someone interested in your specialty industry. Otherwise, I would do your research with whatever trade association represents the industry you're in.
