I think I spend maybe 25% of my time apologizing to someone for being late. So now I can add this blog post to my list of things I'm sorry for being late with sending out.
So Stax is 5 months old now. I am mainly in the store on the weekends because my day job is keeping me very busy. After the summer rush dies down, I want to be in the store more. Right now, Mike handles the day-to-day, really stressful stuff and I handle the social media, marketing, and author events (which is also stressful).
(Speaking of which, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Sign up for our newsletter here. And if you know of any authors who may want to do an author signing or reading at Stax, please email me here.)
When I graduated from Bentley (then College, not University) with a degree in Marketing, the Internet was really just starting to be a thing so marketing techniques may have been a little different but the common sense of it is the same. I never thought I'd be "good" at it. And by that I mean good enough. I am learning to just go for it. Chances are I won't get it exactly right the first time but I'll learn something from the experience that I can apply to the next time. Wish I could have figure this out about 20 years ago but better late than never. :)
Come for a visit and buy some books! And tell your friends! And family! And strangers on the T!
