I am looking for a very experienced social media strategist who might be interested in working on a new venture in exchange for equity. I'm not going to post details here because I'm not "recruiting."
My question is more general: how would I find a very well qualified social media consultant?
I've tried posting on job boards and freelancer sites, and I get inundated with replies from offshore companies, and completely unqualified individuals.
I've tried searching on LinkedIn, and I just can't narrow in on search terms that return the kind of people I'm looking for (LinkedIn searching is pretty lame, but I've had success for more specific searches for other positions).
