The Great T-Shirt De…AAAAAaaah!
I am thinking that is probably a statement of the obvious: it costs money to promote your books, money that you should be accounting for in an accounting system of some sort that you use to track how much you are spending to make whatever you earn. In fact, you might not be earning money: you could be losing money. I have set up my book-selling business so that I do not lose money, so the amount of money I invest in promotion is not-more-than-I-earn.
Sometimes it is as much as I earn, though. Yea. I try to avoid that.
I try to earn money.
For that reason, I’m thinking about this:
or, alternatively, this:
Those are one-color green ink on black tshirt designs that my neighbor, Rene can provide to me for less than 1/3rd of the cost of any online printing four color ink designs I was able to locate (well…unless I want to order 1,000 tshirts. I don’t want to order 1,000 tshirts. I only need 10 or 20 tshirts). The really cool thing about it is that I also will get to support a local business.
So… tell me… do you like the first one, or the second one better?
