Let’s Talk Online Marketing
I am looking for 6 to 8 booksellers who are active in marketing their stores online
and want to share their successes and failures with others once or twice a month in a virtual roundtable format. We’ll test this with a video conferencing service like Zoom or GoToMeeting, so you’ll need an Internet connection, a computer with a video camera and a microphone, and headphones/earphones. E-mail me at if interested and we’ll discuss the format and topics and set up a date and time to “meet.”

Tip of the Week
When creating views for your IndieCommerce store, make sure that you set the correct permission for each view you create. You don’t want to accidently exclude people from seeing your content or reveal sensitive information. For more information on views, please visit the IndieCommerce Help Center or e-mail


Thanks for reading. Feel free to email us with any thoughts, questions, or suggestions.
