    enabled me and the librarian to analyze what the library offers to teachers and what the library can do to improve its services to teachers

    “Every act is a marketing act.” (Beckwith, 1997, 38)
    Creating a marketing plan is a challenging task
    Understanding the audience is important
    A good marketing campaign does not have to involve the 6 P’s
    Bite-sized marketing is effective
