Turbocharge your Book Sales by doing Virtual Book Tours Now

May 18, 2008
Authors have several routes of promotion for their newly published works. They can traipse across the country at the behest of their publisher or distributor visiting book stores and doing book signings or they can leverage the power of the internet and the telephone and achieve better results with less time and cost. This process is called Virtual Book Touring, and it involves using your telephone and conducting a teleseminar form wherever you are. It is truly a one to many exercise compared to the one to one of the traditional book tour.

Authors can increase their market size and exposure by simply replaying these calls to many different audiences at many different times. This avoids the cost of time and travel with the old style book signing visits. New authors can see a positive return on their investment quicker and the process allows for self published books or traditional large publishers to participate fully.

The principle of the teleseminar allows the listener to hear the authors story, in the authors own words, when and where they can talk on the telephone with an interviewer. The call is recorded and can be played back on a wide variety of different media. The may include podcasts, cd or dvd recordings , or played again and again to different audiences via the teleseminar route.

This methodology has been used by many authors to gain exposure for their books. The recent bestseller by Tim Ferriss,-The 4 Hour Workweek was promoted like this and brought unknown authors from obscurity to the New York Times Bestseller List. Others to use the strategy effectively have included Donald Trump, Jack Canfield,Mark Victor Hansen,and Julie Andrews.

Most of these authors were interviewed by a fascinating interviewer, named Alex Mandossian, a California based marketer who honed this technique through his teachings on Teleseminars. He has built on that success to teach a course call Virtual Book Tour Secrets which provides all of the information you need to conduct one of these tours and sell more books.
