Things To Do To Prepare For Your Tour

So many authors are not quite sure what to do before, during and after a tour. Here are a few things to consider.

1. Before the tour, talk it up. Tell everyone about it.

2. Before the tour, send out emails asking everyone to help you get word out about your book.

3. Before the tour, determine your goals.

4. During the tour, share links, visit blogs.

5. During the tour, update your website with active links to your feature on the blogs.

6. After the tour, make a final visit to all the blogs to see if there are more comments.

7. After the tour, take your content and use it on other platforms to continue building the momentum.

5 Tips on Promoting your Virtual Book Tour

1. Before and during your tour, talk about your tour daily (or even several times a day) on Facebook and Twitter and through other social networks – remind your friends and followers where you will be on the tour and when you will be at each stop.

2. Update your website and blog with a schedule of your Virtual Book Tour and include links to all the stops on the tour.

3. Once your tour starts, visit each site on your tour and leave a comment. Also, answer any questions people may have left for you in the comments section of the site.

4. Create a media release announcing your tour and all the stops on the tour. Submit this release to various FREE online media release distribution services.

5. If you have a mailing list, send a special mailing to your list announcing your tour.
