The Day Job: Monique Trottier is an owner and partner of Boxcar Marketing, an internet consultancy with expertise in web strategy, online marketing, content development and online communities.
An expert in internet marketing and social media, Monique is the force behind the online promotional campaigns for the Harry Potter books, as well as the queen of several online marketing initiatives that placed publisher Raincoast Books at the forefront of the Canadian publishing industry in terms of technology use: Raincoast was the first Canadian publisher to start a literary podcast series and the first to blog; internationally they were among the top 5 publishers to implement new media strategies.
My work on social networking, corporate blogging, podcasting and personal blogging has led to speaking engagements at Vancouver's Word on the Street Festival and Wordfest: Banff-Calgary International Writers Festival. If you are a publisher looking for social media and online marketing expertise, give me a call. Contact me at Boxcar Marketing.
The other Monique: I write a personal blog about books, technology and the publishing industry right here at SoMisguided.com. I am a writer, editor, internet marketer, point-and-shoot photographer, web-aficionado and book reader. I created my first website in 1996 as part of an interactive design diploma. Now I blog.
This other Monique is also a public speaker and available for guest speaking duties on writing and editing for the web, usability and information architecture, online marketing and publicity, blogging, podcasting, general tech geekiness and the like.
