I'm hoping you may be able to help me, but first I'll explain where I am up to this point:
I have a friend who works in a tattoo studio. One of his clients is a well respected DJ, he plays all over the world and runs his own club nights. My mate happened to mention to him that he knows someone (me) who designs websites and mobile sites etc. The DJ was really interested and said ge needs a website and likes the idea of a mobile site too.
My friend gave him my contact details and passed his on to me. So seeking the opportunity (I'm thinking of the huge exposure this could get me as he has a huge FB following etc) I gave him a call, and left a message. Nothing too heavy, just that I'd received his details, it's something I could help him with and I'd like to arrange a meeting with him to run through his aims, etc etc.
I had no reply back, so a week later I rang and left another message....but still no reply. Now I know that he's a busy guy and I don't want to come across as hassling him, but as far as I'm concerned it isn't a "no" until he tells me.
However, because I don't want to seem like I'm pestering him, I haven't contacted him in a couple of weeks! Can you guys recommend what you would do in my situation?
Incidentally, while I was in the tattoo studio (getting some work done on my sleeve) I approached the manager and showed him a mock up mobile site I'd developed for the studio. I showed him on my phone and he said it was something he'd be interested in. I told him that I would develop it and host it for free in exchange for him posting a link to it on his FB wall (he too has a 6,000 plus following - a lot of which are business owners - I sense opportunity here). So I've developed the site and sent him an email, didn't get any reply. Then I sent him a follow up - no reply still!
What would you do in this situation too - I mean I'm offering it him for free!!
Sorry about the lengthy post,
Any help is appreciated and valued,
