Postcard Boost: Second Step

The next step after having designed your postcards is to create a mailing list of industry associates you would like to receive them. This step requires probably the most thorough and tedious work involved with promotional mailers: research. You often have to sift through a variety of sources and sites in order to place a name to a position or an address with a house. It is work, but it is very important work because you will use this information three to four times a year.

Last night at #kidlitart we discussed just how we find the information we are seeking and how we organize it. You can read the storify transcript here: http://storify.com/kidlitart/kidlitart-chat-mailing-lists

Be sure to join us next week as we discuss sketchbooks!
