In episode 14, we chat with Todd Coopee, toy historian and author of Light Bulb Baking: A History of the Easy-Bake Oven.
Todd discusses his use of Shopify to sell the book on his own site, how social media has been a part of his strategy, his use of mailing lists, his unique approach to a book launch, and much more. We also mull over the worth of selling on Amazon (debatable, I know – if you have your own thoughts, do leave them below), how Kevin bought 8 iphone cases (and doesn’t even own an iphone) and creating episodes for Ottawa Writes. Check out the episode just below 🙂
