Gain Exposure with an Online Blog Tour

50+ Book Blog Tour Sites with Comparisons

Traditional and self-published authors alike know that their books need exposure to find new readers.

Of all the ways for a self-published author to promote a new book, blog tours remain one of the surest ways to grow interest and awareness in your books.

If you’ve never heard of a blog tour before, the best way I can think to describe it is like a digital version of a book signing–a place where your target readers are hanging out–so you can meet them and tell them about your book.

Book tours are comprised of different people’s blogs across the internet that all showcase your book to their followers, who are targeted readers of your genre. A blog tour allows an author to “appear” on multiple book blogs in a span of 1 to 4 weeks to promote an up-and-coming book. The appearances on these book blogs consist of a variety of online activities for the author, from writing guest posts, engaging in interviews, posting book excerpts and more. The greater number of blogs you can appear on, the more you will expand your audience and extend your reach.

Blog tours are useful in selling books, but the main purpose is to actively get your name out to your potential readers, who then continue to spread the word to their friends.

By showing up on several of their favorite blogs, potential readers are more likely to give your book a chance.

Each blog tour stop enables authors to attract lots of new readers and social media fans, with the potential of reaching a worldwide audience and creating a following.

If you want to get your book known on a global level, a blog tour is an economic way to market your book to the people who would most like to read it.

Self-published authors aren’t the only ones taking advantage of blog tours, even large publishers and many bestselling authors are going on interviews and blog posts of bloggers and interviewers from around the web. There are many bloggers whose reach extends beyond tens of thousands of readers… imagine being exposed their entire group of readers!

The problem is that not all blogs and book tours are the same. Some blog tours will accept any genre of book while others are specific for a certain niche. Prices vary, as do the quality of the blogs that participate (naturally, you want to appear on established sites with a solid readership).

Below is the most comprehensive list of book tours on the net, featuring every quality blog tour service that we know of. Not only can you see all the blog tour services and their genre expertise, but you can see the price of each package and how many blog stops are included. So use the below list to find the best blog tour service for your budget.
