I am a part of a team that developed an iPhone/Android game. We are in a unique position because the sponsor of the game is willing to pay a lot to get this app marketed by an experienced digital game marketing company.
My issue is, I am not familiar with the gaming industry at all, and not sure how to find such marketing company. The 2 contacts I found through my professional networks did seem qualified, but as soon as we start talking budget, they stop responding. (I was told to start from 20k, but my sponsor is willing go pay quite a bit. He wants this game to be popular.)
Perhaps they are not willing to work with such small team of developers? I am thoroughly stumped to how I can proceed with this problem.
