On Thursday, March 14, from 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. EST, the American Booksellers Association will present a Marketing Meetup that will focus on marketing via Twitter.
All booksellers are invited to participate in these bookseller-led educational conversations, which are conducted through Zoom.us and held at 11:00 a.m. EST on two Thursdays a month. Booksellers who would like to participate should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for an invitation and instructions.
As reported by Internet Live Stats, there are 500 million tweets sent each day, which comes out to 6,000 tweets every second. And with 67 million Twitter users in the U.S. alone, the marketing opportunities on this social media platform are limitless.
The guest speakers for the March 14 Marketing Meetup will include Sarah Costello of Politics and Prose and Daniel Weaver of East City Bookshop, both in Washington, D.C., as well as Cristin Stickles of McNally Jackson in New York City.
