Kicking off My Virtual Book Tour

Filed under: Virtual Book Tour — by at 4:29 am on Monday, January 22, 2007

Three. Two. One. Welcome to the kick off of my virtual book tour “40 Blogs in 40 (Business) Days”. In the next forty days, I plan to visit forty blogs to talk about my autobiography I’ll Do It Myself, living with cerebral palsy, working as a solopreneur and whatever other topics are on bloggers’ minds. I am really excited about doing a virtual tour and am curious where all I will visit over the next eight weeks! Please join me on tour by signing up in the upper right corner to receive blog updates in your email inbox so as not to miss any of the excitement and surprises along the way.

As with any tour, the itinerary is subject to change. The plan was to kick off this tour in Australia, but my friend Des is in the midst of launching his own audiobook Big Biller and is not available at this time. I wish Des every success with his audiobook and look forward to stopping by his blog later in the tour to compare notes on book promotion strategies.

The beauty with virtual book tours is that this itinerary change is no problem at all. I simply go onto the next stop, which is eSight Career Network’s “Promoting Yourself by Building Solid Relationships” . In my interview with eSight’s Senior Content Developer Jim Hasse, we discuss how book marketing is like job hunting: they both involve building solid relationships with people within your target audience.

I would like to sincerely thank Jim and Executive Director Nancy O’Connell for their tremendous support, both as I was writing my book and now as I promote it. Not only did they host a tour appearance, they also emailed the 3000 eSight members to further garner support and reach for virtual book tour.

If this is the kind of support I may receive from other bloggers too, I have absolutely no idea where this tour may lead me or what results to expect. This experience could be mind-boggling. My seat belt is fastened and I’m ready to go. I hope you will join me!

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

i think Book Marketing takes more effort compared to e-mail marketing and social media marketing.’,`
