Virtual Blog Tour

Virtual Blog Tour

by Tasha Turner

From late-May trough Labor day my team and I are running a virtual blog tour for members of the MasterKoda Facebook group.  For a number of people this will be their 1st tour ever.

Virtual blog tours can be a great way to increase your readership and hopefully lead to more books sold.  A great explanation of what a virtual blog tour is can be found here.  Pump Up Your Book’s 28-point Virtual Book Tour Checklist is also very useful.

The tour I will be running is a bit different from the norm. It is designed to help the writers get comfortable hosting and being guests on blogs.  To help increase their readership we decided to do a different theme each week which will keep all of us hopping.

Planning a virtual blog tour is a lot of work. We currently have over 40 people signed up to participate in the tour.  Keeping track of who is on which blog each week as well as the themes and not letting the bloggers get overwhelmed is a tight walk. My staff and I are learning a lot. Thankfully we have a number of volunteers helping out, several of whom have experience with virtual blog tours.
