On May 23, the American Booksellers Association will present “Hosting Community Writing Contests/Creating Original Content,” the second in a series of three Marketing Meetups focusing on topics related to IngramSpark, the print-on-demand book publishing service and e-book distribution tool.
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.
During the Marketing Meetup on Thursday, May 23, at 11:00 a.m. EDT, booksellers will discuss how to engage with their local writing communities, to create high margin titles to sell in-store, and to develop bookstore-branded products.
Guest speakers for this upcoming marketing meetup will be Josh Floyd, manager of business development for IngramSpark; Nicole Magistro of The Bookworm of Edwards in Edwards, Colorado; and Kimberly Daniels from The Country Bookshop in Southern Pines, North Carolina.
