  1. I’d love to connect on gay marketing topics — any chance we might talk by phone?

  2. Interesting blog! I operate a Contract Loan Processing Agency and was surfing around for ideas to create blogs in Word Press for Real Estates Agents in Texas wanting to develop a niche product such as assisting buyers wanting to purchase bank owned properties, which brought me to yours.

    While surfing I also working on creating pages back links and invite you to email with your blog address and I’ll be happy to post you link on my site which helps promote your blog as well.

  3. Just added you to our links section. Any chance of a link back? Love the site, by the way. Very good stuff.

  4. Jack- PinkTix is added. Thanks for the love!

  5. Great site guys – do you have any experience in marketing emerging gay destinations, or destinations that have not raditionally been seen as gay-friendly? We’re (two Europeans) working on a project in India at the moment and interested in promoting India and Nepal as new hotspots for the LGBT community. Thanks!

  6. Send me your contact details…. We’re looking for a hip marketing person–strategy, creative direction, response evaluation–for our Gay Travel Blogging site http://www.QGuide.com – cheers Jack

  7. Doritos ads? What were they thinking? Speaking as a marketing professional, the only thing worse than being offensively controversial is doing so with a lack of creativity. These are bad and offensive. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

  8. How shocking that we found each other here!
