When hobbies become lifesavers. During lockdown my husband’s hobby of repairs bicycles 🚲 and giving them a new life became our life-saver as his hours were cut. His collection of unloved and unwanted bicycles were in high demand as cars left the roads and bicycles reclaimed the streets and lanes. Suddenly family found a new kind of freedom as they all went out cycling together.
Now the streets are alive with traffic once more the demands for bicycles has eased off and my husband sells the odd one or two, but some of the people return to asking for repairs on old bikes or to trade in for an upgrade. At least the bicycles are finding new homes.
So what has this all got to do with marketing books you may be asking. Well, it is an opportunity for me to find a reader. Today, I sold three of my books to this lovely lady when she came to collect a bicycle from my husband. 😊 Of course, I also asked her to review them too, if she enjoyed reading them.
