5 Essential Tools for Your Blogosphere Tour

For your book to arrive at its ultimate destination—right in the hands of readers—you need to get the word out about it. One good place to start is the blogosphere, the collection of blogs and writing communities online. Tap into this network with a targeted blog tour for your book. But before you get started, make sure you have these essentials ready:

  1. Blogs

    First things first, you’ll need a list of Blogs. Think about the ways you can promote your book on these websites: interviews, guest posts, reviews. That may help you with the selection process.

  2. Home Base

    Also, an online marketing campaign wouldn’t be complete without a Home Base. This can be a website or a website page that blog readers can visit if they want more information about your book. It should include the important details: your book cover, a short description, your author photo and bio, and even links to where they can get a copy of your work.

  3. Banner

    Once that’s set up, you’ll need a Banner to spruce up your page. The best part is that this image is versatile—you can use it in your email signature and other promotional efforts.

  4. Freebies

    And of course, what’s a tour without Freebies? Make sure to reward reader engagement with some prizes.

  5. Press Release

    Lastly, don’t forget to drum up excitement for your tour. Employ the influence of the media with a Press Release that features your upcoming blog appearances.
