Virtual Blog Tours - Moving Beyond Books

Guest Post By Nikki Leigh (Author and Publicist)

Part 2

In Part 1, Nikki began her discussion about virtual blog tours that one can organize for more than books.  Many businesses are beginning to use them.  Nikki also coordinates tours, so has first hand knowledge about this.  [See Part 1 here]

Targeted Approach to Virtual Blog Tours

With this targeted approach, any product or service, can be promoted on the internet and can be promoted through a virtual blog tour. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you use a website, a blog, social networks or any other online option to promote your product or service?
  • Are these things that you want to use, but you need to learn more about how to use them?
  • Do you have a way for people to order your product or service on the internet?
  • If not, this is something that can greatly increase your revenue from selling products and it is also a great way to build your mailing list.
  • Do you want to reach people who need and want your product or service?

If you aren’t currently using these options to promote your product or service, it would be beneficial to discuss the possibilities with a qualified publicist who is knowledgeable about Web 2.0. The options listed above can be utilized by most business people and you could be astounded at the possibilities that are available with the click of a mouse.

 People who aren’t currently using the internet to promote their services can start to build a great foundation for future promotion and begin to create an online presence through a virtual tour. Imagine, you can promote your product and service to a worldwide audience.

This is a quote from a client about the experiences she had in her virtual tours.

“The Virtual Blog Tour is the ideal way to promote your books. But it is so much more than that. As the Internet has grown and changed over the last few years, so has the basic concept of the Virtual Blog Tour….When you’re on tour, you aren’t just promoting your products. You’re representing them and building your brand as well. There is no limit to how successful you can be when you are willing to expand your concept of everything.”  - Dyan Garris.

Are you ready to take your business and your promotion to a Web 2.0 level? If so, I highly recommend that you look into the options that are available through a virtual blog tour.
