Hello. I’m Paulette Harper the owner of Write Now Literary Book Tours. I’ve been helping authors promote their books since 2011. As an author, I know the importance of promoting and getting our books into the hands of readers. With a passion to help authors reach new readers and get the exposure they need, Write Now Literary was created.
The focus of a virtual book tour is to extend your reach and provide you with opportunities to build relationships with new readers and increase your on line presence.
What is a Virtual Book/ Blog Tour?
Virtual book tours feature authors promoting books by making guest appearances during a set time frame on blogs, podcasts, radio shows, social networks, or other venues. The author goes from blog to blog sharing information about their books. A virtual book tour is a popular book marketing tactic because authors reach their books target audience through online conversations, reviews, guest post and book excerpts that can lead to sales—all without leaving your home.
Tours are often done as part of the launch of a new book, but they can be successful any time after the book is published. They are just as effective for fiction and nonfiction books — only the venues and the type of content will vary.
Benefits of a VBT
Why Authors Should Do a Virtual Book Tour?
The purpose/benefits of a virtual book tour is to enhance the author's platform and reputation through increased online exposure, drive traffic to the author's website, build relationships with key influencers, and potentially sell books immediately and in the future.
A virtual tour offers a number of advantages over traditional book tours where authors make appearances at bookstores or other venues in several cities.
Bloggers love great content- Developing great content derives from your book.
Types of content included with tour--- guest post, reviews from bloggers, book excerpts, podcasts, video interviews, blogger hosted contest where you offer your book as a prize, topical written post, interviews, get to know the author, playlist, character interviews.
That content could include: your writing journey, writing tips, marketing, you can write something that ties your book into the content (for instance my first book (non-fiction) I took one on the chapters and built content around it, submitted it to different online magazines.
The virtual tour provides quality, lasting links to the author's website. These links have search engine optimization value and may continue to provide new visitors to the author’s website for months or years to come.
