I am working very hard on my first venture but don't have marketing experience. I would love to have someone who I could speak to about some of the details or ideas I have about marketing strategy and see if its way off. What is the best way to find and get a marketing mentor?

Happy to look at your situation and see if I can help you. Need some background on the compay, offering and where it is in the launch cycle. I'm wondering if you may need a combination of Mrktg, Sales and Operations sppt, depending on where you are in your company's launch? Let me know. Thanks. Dan C.

Hi Chi Chi, so, you want to talk to experts, but you don't want to pay.

The easiest way is to call Google, Microsoft, etc.

Their ad teams can show you the latest and the best practices. Chances are you are using their ad networks anyway, and so is any other experienced digital marketer, so just head straight to the native experts.

It's all free, and they usually have a phone number to call - Facebook doesn't. If you are not getting the answers you want, hang up, and call again for a different rep.

Hi, Chi Chi, Check in with experts in the industry you are in. You don't really tell us what kind of business you're starting, but that would be a good clue. You want someone who has both general marketing knowledge and subject knowledge. You also have not said whether you are looking for someone for free, or whether you are willing to pay. If the latter, you will have many more choices. as an example, I have been in marketing for 30 years, and might be willing to help if I knew more.

You should first and foremost know your market and all aspects of your demographics. Look at what your unique value proposition is (why you are the latest/greatest), and read! There are a zillion great books on marketing, check Amazon for starters, or google. Marketing is a time consuming part of all business, and unless you have a friend or associate you know through networking groups, I don't think it's likely someone will "volunteer" to provide you with the experienced knowledge from working with an established marketing company. Join the marketing groups on linkedIn which are appropriate to your business, and possibly someone there can help too. Good luck!

Hi Chi Chi, as a startup founder, things can get a little lonely at the top. If you just want to bounce off some ideas to seek advice, I don't mind helping you out informally if there's no conflict of interest. I advice on marketing strategy. You can write to me on cofounderslab.
