While it’s no secret that doing everything possible to promote your book helps increase sales, there are certain things you can do in today’s more digital age that really makes a difference, and blog tours are one of them.
Earlier this year, Greg Strandberg with The Book Designer, covered 7 top eBook blog tour sites. Check out his report HERE, and see a recap of the sites below.
Here are 7 of the best blog tour sites out there to get your books promoted at blogs around the web!
First level is a 15-stop Tour for $50 over 5 to 6 days.
This and higher levels include social media shout-outs, emails to their 800+ email list, and Rafflecopter opportunities.
Cover Reveals are FREE (if chosen and not already released and available for sale).
Several paid extras are also available, all for around $30, such as Trailer Reveals, Book Blitzes, and Review Queries to help get your book to bloggers that will read and review it.
With such a growing YA market out there, don’t miss out on this one!
Connected to over 1,200 bloggers, with over 2,800 followers on Goodreads.
Basic tour is $100 with 15 stops, but truly amazing exposure.
Cover reveals are $40.
The site primarily caters to romance and young adult readers.
Frog Tour (beginning tour) is $29 for 4 to 7 stops.
From there it goes up to The Empress Package, $249 for a two-month tour with 30 or more stops.
Have at least 2 to 3 excerpts of your book ready!
Also a great stop for romance writers.
This site specializes in paranormal, urban fantasy, and paranormal erotica books.
Packages start at $40 for a Release Day Blitz, which gets you out on 20 blogs.
Monthly tours go up to $175.
They also run free book promotions for $50, up to 5 days.
Twitter and Facebook social media blasts also available.
I can vouch for the professionalism and success of this blog tour site personally. My favorite by far, and just an amazing amount of exposure for little cost.
Cover reveal or Blurb Blitz options start at $45 for 15 to 25 stops.
Actual tours also start at $45 and go all the way up to $300 or more for tours lasting a month or longer.
Nearly every genre welcome. This one is a must!
Cover Reveal out to 10 blogs for $25
Book Blitz for $30-$40
Bronze, Silver, and Gold packages ranging from $60 to $200, at 10 blog stops over two weeks to 25 to 30 stops over a month.
Book 6 to 8 weeks in advance of your release!
And last but not least…this site is FREE.
20 different bloggers will list your book at no cost to you, typically 2 sites a day between Monday and Thursday.
Book trailers and cover reveals also available!
So if any of these fit your budget and genre, head on over and check them out. While appealing to individual bloggers can be beneficial, tours like this really can pay for themselves (especially the free one, haha!) just by the extra interest you create hitting so many different readers.
