I'm looking to do some networking with high quality studios, especially in Maryland and other east coast states in the US. I'm new to sales in this industry so I'm trying to get a little jump start. I have a solid understanding of communication and business development, but the gaming industry is a new beast for me (in terms of B2B relationships). So where do I start?
My goals are to:
- find businesses interested in outsourcing their art and/or their mobile app/game development, or all of the above.
- develop solid, lasting relationships with people working in the industry. (Networking)
- pitch my company's services to industry leaders, producers, publishers, and developers.
- settle deals and help my company get the development process kickstarted with our clients.
If you have experience please enlighten me. I will pick up on things as I go, but I was hoping to get some legitimate advice to get the ball rolling. Thanks.
