Today is the last day of the blog tour for my Klepto Cat Mystery series. So what did I get out of the tour? We’ve covered most of the benefits of a blog tour during the week here in this blog. I hope this has jazzed you up about the possibilities for your own blog tour, where you’ll get exposure for your book or your series and become more well-known as a writer in that genre or on that topic.
Another benefit is the review. Well, this could come under exposure, certainly. During the week, the blog hosts posted reviews of my various Klepto Cat Mystery books at their sites, at Amazon, at Good Reads and other places. They’ve posted at their social media accounts. So what’s that…another 1,000 or 50,000 people who learned about my cozy mysteries during the week?
As Aunt Margaret would say, “Yeowza!”
Okay, so what’s next in my marketing bag for this series of books? I’m thinking about doing Amazon’s free book program. One of my clients offered his Kindle book for free at Amazon and he says there were 34,000 copies downloaded in one day. Now, I have trouble seeing the benefit of doing the free thing for just one book. But when you have a series—offering the first in the series for free could very well entice hundreds or thousands of those 34,000 people to buy some of the others. Hey what if all 34,000 people purchase just one of the other books? So what’s 70 percent of $100,000? That figure rates another Yeowza!!!
I’ll let you know if and when I decide to try this Amazon program. In the meantime, I’d better get back to the writing of book 6—The Celebrity Cat Caper.
Oh, by the way, today’s blog tour stopover is at http://www.kittycrochettwo.blogspot.com. I share more of my personal story and some of my passions (writing and cats).
