An online book promotion method in which an author visits a series of high-traffic blogs for the purpose of promoting their latest book release. The process works best for everyone involved when the author stops at 10-15 blogs, one each day, consecutively over a period of 2-3 weeks. Each blog post should be different and slanted to "fit" the hosting blog, and the author should plan to visit each blog during the tour in order to interact with readers. The tour is also promoted on the author's blog and website, and on social networks such as FaceBook and Twitter. This formula seems to create a high degree of search engine notice, and thus helps boost author profile, with an ultimate goal of selling books.What will you learn in this class?

Thinking you might want someone to hold your hand? Dani has also started a five-stop blog book tour service for $200 to guide the author - you can then easily expand the tour by adding more stops based on the foundation and guidance from the first five.
