BOOKS ARE MY BAG Bookshop Launch – Saturday, September 14th
Join the Big Bookshop Party
It’s not long till the Bookshop Launch Day of 14th September
, and we need YOUR
help to make the campaign launch as lively and as striking as possible!
Booksellers who ordered BAMB cotton bags will receive the bags in early September. Also in early September, all registered bookshops will receive a FREE full Point of Sale Kit
– this has been designed to create a party/carnival atmosphere in the shop, and we are urging all BAMB bookshops to use the kit to bedeck the bookshops, and make a visible statement to customers that the bookshop is taking part in this unprecedented campaign.
is planning the consumer PR for the campaign
, (and we will let you know about that just as soon as it’s confirmed) and there will be national media coverage visible to all on the weekend of 14th
Booksellers can capitalise on this media coverage, and create their own local BAMB splash
by using the POS kit, and by starting to plan NOW for a day of celebration
on 14th September.
We will shortly be sending to BAMB bookshops a Bags of Ideas
kit, with suggestions for the sorts of events and celebrations bookshops could think about putting on. In the meantime, booksellers can start planning by:
Contacting local media now to alert them to the campaign
Approaching local authors now or approach publishers to organize an author event
Thinking about other ways to join the Big Bookshop Party on 14th September.
