May 19: Better (and cheaper) communications with social media

As a publisher of fiction or nonfiction, you’ve got a story to tell! But how do you let people know about your books? And, just as important, how can you tell that your efforts are paying off? What email, tweet, Facebook post, blog article, press release, or other piece brings the most eyeballs to your website — and which ones translate into better sales for you?

Join Rosemary Jones, web editor of Book Publishers Northwest, for a discussion of free (or very cheap) ways to create and track effective online communication.

Then Robbin Block, author of Social Persuasion: Making Sense of Social Media for Small Business, will give you even more ways to improve your communications and create a marketing  mix that works best for your business.

This meeting begins at 4 pm, May 19, at Good Shepherd Center, room 202, 4649 Sunnyside N., Seattle, WA.

  1. Returned from IBPA’s Mini-U full of new ideas, questions, contacts, and information. I’ll be sharing all this at a meeting soon (TBA) as well as writing an article on my impressions and learnings. Our focus was eBooks and yowza, there’s a lot to know that I still am learning about.

    Thanks to BPNW and IBPA for the scholarship and opportunity to attend.
