I have a an idea for a startup that would be closely intertwined with the Advertising industry. I still need to do the necessary research to determine if the idea is viable and to identify all the major hurdles I'll be running into at some point. For this, I need the help of a consultant that understands the business end of the commercial advertising industry and I have no idea where to start looking for one.
Thanks in advance for all your wisdom!
I've no idea what your questions are, but I know lots of people who work in advertising, because my business revolves around advertising.
If I can help, I'd need to know what budget you might have for a consultant, and the types of questions you have.
You can see a little about my business Wordfruit Copywriters.

This is a bit more risky, but you could go to your local college or business school and hire a young, bright and motivated grad student (or recent grad).
