We're ready to promote our new political news site www.ForAgainst.com but I've never launched a national site. I would prefer to partner with someone who has experience growing a news website. What is the best way to find a partner who has the expertise we need?
Why not try Freelancer.com or Elance, one of those type of sites. Surely you can find someone skilled, with past experince easily viewable, looking for something a little more "ongoing".
Best of luck with it!
Love the idea. I do have 1 suggestion for you, which is better handled in an email rather than via a paid phone consultation or publicly.
I ran NJ.com and several of its affiliates for 5 years with national reach. I also ran SouthernAlpha.com, which was recently acquired. I'd be happy to talk with you about this.
Hi there, I like your website!
I teach Rhetoric at Universities, have worked in journalism and in Washington DC, and I believe your 'in' to a political website may be the on-ground connections you can make. This will take some guerilla marketing and social publicity through 'tastemakers'.
Where to start: Look at highly published bloggers on Huffington Post, Vox.com or Quartz.com. See whose voice you like.
I am excited to talk more with you. News today is built around personality of trust, let's talk more about how you can collaborate to build a political hub!
