LIMITED TIME BONUS INCLUDED: FREE REPORT reveals exactly super book marketing hacks .
You’ve put a lot of effort into writing and publishing your book. Now it’s time to market. Most authors never sell more than a handful of books because they have no plan for visibility. Enter Blog Tours.
Hands down, blog tours are one of the best ways to reach more readers in an incredibly fast way. Rather than reaching potential buyers one at a time, you can reach hundreds, even thousands of hungry buyers by tapping into the power of Blog Book Tours.
If you are serious about marketing your books, adding in a Blog Tour will put you light- years ahead of most authors.
Most books sell less than $100 in the lifetime of the book. Don’t be like up to 95% (or more) of authors who never, ever make money with their books. Be in the tiny percentage of authors who go the distance and proactively promote your books. Not only will you gain lots of satisfaction knowing there are people out there who are enjoying your work, you will also likely make real money.
