IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Due to parking issues and blocked roads for this Saturday's St. Patrick's Day Parade on Blake St, we have had to change venues for this Saturday's meeting, March 16. It would have been a nightmare for everyone to try to find parking, and to navigate all the road closures. The event will now be held at the Hampton Inn & Suites Parker. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused anyone. As a result, we have also modified the time of the meeting to allow people to make their way down to Parker, and be back home at a more convenient time. Details below...

How many times have you been in an amazing presentation and you thought to yourself, I wish we had more time to actually apply all this information to my project (my book, my marketing, etc.)?
Come to the March 16 CIPA meeting and get hands on help with marketing your book.
Last month’s meeting with Heather Lutze’s “Thumbonomics” was a resounding success. Many of you who attended said on your evaluations that you wanted more time and more experience with the tools Heather talked about. We’re turning one whole CIPA meeting into a workshop—a Thumbonomics workshop where we will have six facilitators helping you figure out how to apply Thumbonomics and other successful marketing tools to your own marketing efforts.
Here are the topics you can choose from:
Table #1—Learning the Basics of Thumbonomics. Dr. Patricia Ross, our program chair and now VP of CIPA, will go over the basics of Thumbonomics for those who want to make sure they know how to use the Google keywords tool, or if you missed last month’s meeting and want to know what all the hub-bub is about.
Table #2—Facebook. How should you use Thumbonomics and other marketing tools to help increase your traffic on Facebook and LinkedIn? Hosted by our Social Media expert, Mary Waleski. She will help you make your Facebook and LinkedIn accounts work better for you.
Table #3—Twitter. How to make the most of your Tweets with Leslie Miller and Cherish Flieder. They have a lot of good ideas to help you use Twitter effectively - and remember, Leslie is the person who Twitters for Heather Lutze herself!
Table #4—Blogging. This table will help you make the most of your blogs using the principles of Thumbonomics. (Facilitator to be announced.)
Table #5—Applying the idea of findability to your website. (Facilitator to be announced.)
Table #6—Amazon and Thumbonomics. Our President, Brian Schwartz, will be hosting a table on how to apply Thumbonomics to Amazon and how to make the most of your Amazon presence to boost sales.
There is no rule that says you can’t table hop mid presentation if you want to make sure to hit all six tables.
Publishing is 10% writing and 90% marketing. CIPA is all about helping you become a better publisher—so take advantage of a CIPA morning of Marketing Madness! You’ll leave not just with tools you can try, but with real marketing strategies tailored to fit your book and your message!
Remember, this meeting will be held at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Parker, CO. Visit the hotel website here.
