Sophia Amoruso, founder and CEO of the massively popular apparel website, Nastygal, has been tremendously busy promoting her new book “#Girlboss”, which hits stores today. #Girlboss tells Sophia’s story of how she grew up with nothing and now runs a multi-million dollar fashion business, which she began by selling vintage clothing through eBay. In order to promote this inspiring, out-of-the-box book, Sophia has been applying some normal, as well as many out-of-the-box marketing strategies. Aside from interviews with major news programs such as the BBC, ABC, and Good Morning America, Sophia’s marketing tactics range from topping taxicabs with advertisements reading “If this is a man’s world, who cares? #GirlBoss“, to paralleling a chapter from her book and offering free bagels out of dumpsters, to providing a working hotline at 1-844-GIRLBOSS, which provides a “quick guide to an awesome life”. Judging by her promotional approaches alone, Sophia Amoruso’s new book is sure to be full of helpful and creative tips and techniques on how to manage money, business, and fashion, while also keeping it weird.
