Got a new title coming soon? Maybe you have a back list title that needs some more buzz. Schedule a blog tour! With your blog tour, we will schedule at least one blogger review per day, and to help promote it, we will also schedule a one day promotional blitz for the book during the tour window in which the blog tour will be spotlighted by other bloggers.
Each blog tour features a tour-wide giveaway for a $20 Amazon gift card sponsored by Pure Textuality PR. Authors have the option to add additional prizes to the giveaway as well. The mandatory entry point for the giveaway will be to sign up for your newsletter. Additional entry points will be unlocked once the reader signs up. At the end of the tour, you will be provided with a csv document to add to your newsletter database.
When we send out our tour and promo blitz booking, the booking announcements go out to our entire blogger list (along with a social media share request) and it gets posted to Facebook (three profiles, three groups we own, and sixteen book blogger groups), Twitter (added to our regular rotation, which is also pushed to our Facebook fanpage), Google+, and also gets posted to the Pure Textuality PR blog.
On the day of your promo blitz, in addition to the blogger sharing, a spotlight post for your book or series is shared across 130-170 Facebook promo groups (depending on genre), 20+ Google+ Communities for book promo, 12 shares on Twitter with hashtags to bring in retweets, and it’s posted to the Pure Textuality blog, the Pure Textuality PR Blog, and the From Helios to Hollywood blog. All tweets incorporate the hashtags #iartg, #ian1, #asmsg, and #bookboost (plus #eartg for erotic romance titles) for maximum exposure. These hashtags routinely get retweeted by authors or book promo related Twitter accounts.
We require at least two weeks booking time for each tour. More ensures better results, but we require at least two weeks.
For each blog tour, we require authors supply us with the following information for promotional purposes:
- Two 500+ Word Count Excerpts
- Three 1-2 Line Quotes (For Teasers)
