Amazon Best Seller Virtual Blog Tour Options

Promo 101 Virtual Blog Tours & Promotional Services

Amazon Best Seller Virtual Blog Tour Options

These tours were developed specifically to work in conjunction with an Amazon bestseller campaign - however, they can be adjusted for other promotional campaigns. If you see something that catches your attention, let's talk and see how we can customize the campaign to fit your needs. I can be reached at nikki@nikkileigh.com

NOTE - All these tour packages and prices include the author doing their own written or live interviews, writing or contributing articles for tour spots, pulling excerpts from their book and other work that is needed for the individual sites during the tour. If you do not want to do that work - the price will be more and we would talk about the book and the additional work that we would need to do.

A few of our additional services --

  • Would you like an evaluation of your blog and/or your website?
  • Would you like information about how to use social networking sites better?
  • Would you like to learn to automate parts of your social networking?
  • Would you like to have your social network updates automated so you can update all sites easier?

This is an intense campaign and can include 20-30 blogs. For this campaign, I need a wide variety of information supplied by the author. It is also very positive for the author to visit these blogs. This can be especially useful with a timely topic or if you want to coordinate the tour with other promotional events. We can also discuss this tour option with more tour stops. This tour begins at $800. (More blogs can be added for an additional charge.)

Extensive Amazon Best Seller Virtual Tour –

Before (Lead Up), During and After (Follow Up) the Amazon Campaign

This is a very extensive campaign which all elements of the Platinum Amazon Blog Blitz. It also includes building up anticipation for your book and the campaign, an intensive blog tour centered several days around your campaign and a virtual tour with 2-3 blogs per day for two weeks after your campaign to maximize the momentum from the tour. The additional two weeks can use the same information we used during the tour during the campaign or some hosts might want to send some interview questions. This can also include some niche internet radio show interviews.

It can include a Facebook group to promote the book and to share tidbits from the book leading up to the release. It can also include a customized Twitter account to post taglines that are created to promote your book. A Twitter chat room can be created with a custom hash tag to promote the book – and to generate Twitter attention.

Social networking, social media, social bookmarking and much more are used for this tour and I’m continuing to add new information and options for this campaign.

This tour begins at $2500 – the length of the tour and the number of options you choose to include make the difference in the price. This is a highly customized tour to suit YOUR needs and the needs of YOUR book.
