Marketing… Wednesday?

I’ve decided to keep Marketing Mondays up on my side, but due to lack of comments on the posts I figured most people just aren’t all that interested in what I’m doing on that front. But as a quick recap – I went to World Maker Faire 2011 right here in New York a couple weeks ago, and spent a couple hours on Saturday at McGraw-Hill’s booth for a meet-the-author session:

The squishy robot giveaways were a hit, and I even got to meet Hee Jung, from Make: Korea, who is part of the team that is translating my book into Korean! I also want to thank McGraw-Hilll for being gracious hosts. The blown up poster version of my book cover for the booth was great.

I spent plenty of time wandering the Faire, and this was one of my favorite sights:

Yes, that is a fire-breathing dragon trucked in from Michigan and made mostly from tires and scrap metal. If you ever get the chance to attend one of the Maker Faires, I highly recommend it!

As for other marketing activities, my efforts so far have resulted in requests for my book from several MIT professors, and an invitation to meet a few of them next time I’m in the Boston area. If you’re an educator who could used a complimentary copy of the book, please let me know in the comments or send me an email and I’ll have one sent right out to you.

  1. I would like a complimentary copy of your book. It seems from all indications that it will be a great source of inspiration to my students and me. Thank you for the kind offer.

      1. Dear Ms. Roberts,
        Wow, thank you!
        I see in this page’s picture that you are amidst many books. If you have some favorites you think might be good for my aspiring engineering and robotics students, they would be great to know about.
        Warm regards,
