Had a great time at the Erewash Partnership event on 12th February in Long Eaton on Thursday. Been so busy since I haven't had time to blog about it.
Met lots of local business owners, The Mayor of Erewash, Cllr Barbara Harrison, and sold some books. Including to The Mayor. Thank you for the support Cllr Harrison.
The book display created interest - I was well placed for people walking backwards and forwards to the buffet. So if we didn't catch them on their way to lunch, we caught them on the way back.
Babu Basu, one of the Writers Little Book Club team was with me and we have a fantastic photo of us with the Mayor, and the book of course, which we'll be posting on the website, www.writerslittlebook.co.uk
It's fun going out to talk to people about the book. It stimulates a variety of conversations and nearly everybody wants or knows someone else who wants to write a book.
Of course I think that anyone in business should think about it as a way of rasing their profile. These days there are so many ways on and offline to promote it. Digital printing makes producing it a doddle compared to years ago and it doesn't have to be a weighty tome.
Small, to the point and on one topic is what Seth Godin advises and if it works for him, who are we to argue.
