So proud of member & coaching client +Margaret Travis.  She's making headlines again by promoting her Eazy Peazy Gifts book by partnering with a large vendor - +Fabric Warehouse LLC  to provide a workshop: making a Downton Abbey hanger cover.

Learn from Margaret's success: she used these 4 tactics to promote her book/workshop:

#1: Collaborated with another brand - Fabric Warehouse - to develop a workshop. Fabric Warehouse then promoted it on their Facebook page.

#2: Used a project from her book and will be selling it at the workshop.

#3: Promoted the workshop from her personal Facebook profile (that's where I saw it).

#4: Stays current on social media marketing by being a Annual Member and coaching client. When Margaret's book was about to be published, she hired me as her coach to ensure a successful book launch.

Honored to be part of your success Margaret!
