Author Cherie Burbach teaches you how to set up a virtual book tour to promote your work. Tips on approaching bloggers, promotion techniques, defining the success of your tour, and keeping the promotion of your tour going are all covered. The Virtual Book Tours ebook provides links to promotional sites, places to advertise blogger contests for free, and links and ideas for finding the right blogs for your tour.
Many authors and publishers don’t have the time or resources to set up a city-to-city tour. But authors can still connect with their readers by taking their books to websites online. Not only do virtual tours give authors a chance to meet and interact with readers, the links stay long after the “visit” is over, generating publicity for months and years after the tour is complete.
