21 Day Marketing Plan


Nothing like the excitement of a new project to get my creativity rolling.  I love the beginning of projects, when all possibilities are open and the road is yet traveled.  So here we start Humblearts Journal on blogger. I've had my blog for a few years but over the last two years it's been beyond neglected. My old computer is not a fan of typepad and I'm over here blogging almost everyday anyway for my beady empire.

So what shall we start with?  A list and a plan for November.  I'm giving a presentation at our next SCBWI meeting on Marketing for Authors and Illustrators.  So I need to practice what I'll be teaching and preaching.  I'm great at the knowing, not so good at the doing!

Daily:
twitter/facebook/blog - keep up with what's going on in the industry, get my name & work out there.
Update my mailing list for 15 minutes day.

Week One:
Create new blog
Update website with new work
New promo image

Week Two:
Work on 2 new dummy samples
Send out postcards
Outline for craft book proposal

Week Three:
Send out dummy
Write query letter
Marketing research for craft book proposal

Bite size, specific and with a deadline.  Now that's how you set a goal.  (Illustrator quakes in boots, must stay consistent...)
