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.
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.
