The Duke City Fix is absolutely a business (and nonprofit)-friendly site.* We'd love to hear about your events and your news. However, this is a community, and just as you wouldn't, in polite company, start selling to friends and neighbors over the Thanksgiving Day table, we ask that you follow some basic norms.
Here are the resources that we encourage you to use to promote your business or nonprofit:
Ads and Giveaways
Ads run on the site 24-7 and we do giveaways on Friday afternoons.
Please note that ads and giveaways are the only business-focused activity on the site that is done by the DCF team. Everything else is up to you to provide or create. We don't assign stories, we don't add your events to the calendar, and we don't put your press releases into the Announcements section. We do, however, check to make sure that you're promoting an Albuquerque thing -- events that happen only online, venues outside of the greater metro area, etc., will be removed.
Here's what you can (and should!) do on your own:
This is your place to showcase your business to the Duke City Fix community.
Cool: Make sure it makes you look awesome. Must-haves include:
Not cool: Out-of-date info, unanswered requests for help or information in the comments section. Not being an Albuquerque business!
The perfect place to promote your business or nonprofit!
The forum is really designed for discussions or announcements, not for calendar listings, and commenters in the forum can be pretty rough-and-tumble.
A list of all DCF members is available here.
Cool: Making “friends” with people who want to be friends with you. In general, people want to be your friend to show support, not to get marketed to.
*One important detail to note: With the exception of ads and giveaways, the Duke City Fix moderators will not post your info for you. Please don't add us to your press list for blasts of your press releases -- we don't want them and we won't use them. Instead, engage in this community, post your own info, and let us know if you have any questions!
