What can an author learn from a pair of Spanx?A lot.
I was in a mall last week with my aunt and, as we walked through the pantyhose department, I noticed that one brand stood out. Spanx.
How Spanx got noticed and the unique marketing of this product is a brilliant lesson for all authors. Small is the new big.

As an entrepreneur you want to stand out from everyone else who has a book. Spanx was CREATED to fill a void. Ask yourself what VOID your book can fill – where can it be presented, signed or stocked where it will be noticed.
