Each month, the American Booksellers Association hosts both a Marketing Meetup and a Technology Meetup for bookseller members.
All booksellers are invited to join the Meetups, which typically run 45 minutes to an hour; advance registration is required.
Here's whats on tap for March:
Technology Meetup: Canva Tips & Tricks
Thursday, March 11, at 1:00 p.m. ET
This session will include a basic review of using graphic image platform Canva, a demonstration of customizing a marketing asset by ABA Graphic and Web Designer Melissa Napolitano, and some best practices and tips from fellow booksellers.
Guest speakers will include:
- Erin Matthews of Books With A Past in Glenwood & Savage, Maryland
- Tonisha Kimble of Wonders of the World Book and Toy Store (online)
- Jackie Kenny of Paulina Springs in Sisters, Oregon
Booksellers interested in attending should use the sign-up form at the bottom of the ABA Meetups page to join the appropriate mailing list. Sign-up is only necessary once to receive credentials for all Technology Meetups for the rest of 2021. A few hours before each event, ABA will send the meeting link to those who have signed up for the mailing list.
