Special-Sales Tip of the Day – May 26, 2018

“People are exposed to outdoor advertising for only a few seconds, so a good billboard should only have seven words and two things to look at.” Glen Lane  Your book’s cover acts as a billboard, so those same comments apply to it, too.

Quick Pick of the Week

At the Office of Small Business Programs  (http://business.defense.gov/) you will find Department of Defense information, publications, and programs to assist small, disadvantaged, or minority businesses to compete for DoD contracts.
