A Study on Social Marketing in the Publishing Industry: The Case of the Small Press
Black Rose Books would like to commission a study on the use and impact of social marketing platforms such as Facebook and Twitter in the Canadian publishing industry, and particularly for the small press. We are also seeking a guide to best practices that could be implemented in our day to day affairs.
We would use the study to help create a marketing strategy using social media, allowing us to get our ideas out to a larger audience. The idea is to empower small presses with the tools required to compete in an increasingly concentrated publishing industry.
Desired Skills in Student Researcher
While fields such as Communications or Business might be the best fit, there is no requirement as such. However, the person should be interested in the field of publishing as this research paper offers a great opportunity to build an understanding of the industry.
