What was the app she used for giveaways? I didn’t catch it even after replaying a few times. Also she mentioned using something to create mug designs Fiver?
Pretty sure she was talking about gleam.io
Coffee and a book are an awesome offer. I know there is a website for a book club named that. Put one of the small sample flavored bags of coffee in the branded cup.
OOOOH. Love this idea.
That’s great to hear Louise – I’m happy you have so many fantastic takeaways!
Correct! Gleam.io is the website I use. I currently use the free version but they have lots of upgrade options.
Yes, that website sounds great a unique way to attract readers!
