Tabletop games bring people together and recharges your batteries.

To me, there's no better pastime. But after working for some of the best board game stores in the country I've come to realize the hobby could need some help bringing more players to the table.

That's why I'm starting Meeple Marketing.
The first-ever marketing agency devoted to local friendly game stores.

  • Access to a complete Social Media Calendar for the month with important dates, hashtags and posting tips
  • Designs from previous months 
Your support also helps maintain the largest map of board game cafe's and tabletop gaming locations in North America. Thank you!

About Me

I'm part Advertising Art Director, part Game Enthusiast

I have over a decade of experience in advertising and marketing. My clients have ranged from major companies like Lipton and Subaru to single stores like Games of Berkeley. I've even picked up a few awards along the way.  You can dig into my past on LinkedIn.

In the past few years I've helped launch, run and market several companies. NovelTea Tins is now sold all across the US after three successful Kickstarters raising over $160,000. Tap Score is the best way of testing your water at home and has been featured in Popular Science, ABC News and many more. And Shenova Fashion is my wife's science inspired clothing line. Together we've taken her from a small Etsy shop to a place where her designs are worn in Hollywood and even by the recent Nobel Prize Winners in Physics.  


My other past time is gaming in all forms. Since I first laid my hands on Hero Quest over twenty years ago I've been in love with the pastime. I love how it brings people together. Some of my favorites are Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Magic the Gathering, Saboteur, X-Wing, Warhammer 40K, Android: Netrunner, Diplomacy, Pathfinder, D&D, Eclipse, Galaxy Trucker, Ghost Blitz, Game of Thrones, Pandemic, and so on and so on.

But more than anything I've found that games inspire me. Playing games taps into a part of my creative brain that I can't access otherwise. 

That's probably why I had so much fun helping Victory Point Board Game Cafe and Games of Berkeley with their marketing efforts. Meeple Marketing is my dream and I hope you'll join us in spreading the love for all kinds of tabletop games.



FAQ

When is my marketing material delivered?
One month ahead of when you need it. May's marketing material arrives April 1st. 

Can I suggest what events and games to feature next?
Yes! As a subscriber you'll have access to the Patreon community and can comment on what you'd like to see next. 

What games do you plan to cover?
Below are a few of the games I have on my radar and am planning event posters etc for. I'm always open to suggestions so I can get you the most relevant games.


Can I skip a month that isn't relevant to my store?
Absolutely! You only pay when I release the monthly package, so you can choose to unsubscribe if you don't think the package applies to you.

I have a specific size I need my posters in. Can you deliver in specific size formats?
Yes! All designs are made to be flexible. Just let me know ahead of time and I'll include the size that works for you. (Hero packages only, but as the list grows I'll be able to add more sizes to the Adventurer packages.)

I run a board game cafe; is this for me?
Right now I'm focusing on your typical game store, but in the future I'd love to offer designs that work for board game cafes as well. I do find that most cafe's already have a great design team on staff. 

What's with the dwarf? 
In Nordic Mythology the dwarves were the finest craftsmen. Nobody could match them when it came to forging mighty weapons and astounding treasure. I aspire to craft equally useful tools and beautiful designs for my clients, so Erik the Dwarf is my mascot.

Can I see more examples of your Meeple Marketing work?
Sure can!
