Audio Blog Tours

opening rates

 

Blog tours are meant to imitate the physical book tours authors sometimes take when promoting a book. Because blog tours are virtually-based, they are much more inexpensive and convenient.

Instead of hopping from city to city, a blog tour allows your “tour stops” to take place on blogs and social media to create excellent visibility for your audio title.

Blog tours are not a new concept, but Audiobookworm Promotions is taking them to a new level. Since Audiobookworm Promotions specializes in reviewing and promoting audiobooks, all promotions are audio-focused and open to authors, narrators, and publishers of audiobooks.

Below are the audiobook tours currently available, along with their special opening rates. These rates are exclusive to the opening of Audiobookworm Promotions’ promotional service and are subject to change with clear notice. Take advantage of the opening rates while you can!
