Thinking outside the Box with a car magnet!

Thinking Outside the Box!
Well maybe, inside the box.
For an author, marketing is something we are continually working on. I enjoy finding blogs that think outside the box on promoting. Some of the ways I have promoted are on blogs, featured in interviews, social media and so forth.
But today, I am trying something new, thinking outside the box by broadcasting my work inside the box, that is putting my work inside a (box) frame of a car magnet. Yes, a car magnet, the one that sticks onto the side or back of your vehicle.
God can give us witty inventions, so I’m trying one.
My husband works in a metropolitan, driving almost an hour a day to work on a major interstate. Yeah, we love the country life. So, I got this idea. He is on a super busy interstate twice a day at least an hour at a time depending on traffic, so why not advertise my book with a car magnet. It would be seen by almost a hundred people a day, if not more.
Even if, you don’t travel a major interstate, I believe it would still promote your work in everyday travel and would be a plus when you went on vacation. Just make sure that you have a few copies of your book with you. Who knows you might just sell them.
This is my short tidbit on thinking outside the box with book promotions.
Happy Traveling,
Brenda Scruggs
Author of, “Many Hats of a Lady”
