Guest Post vs. Announcement vs. Cover Reveal
OK, so you’ve got your blog tour organizational thingy set up – your excel spreadsheet, your big notepad, or your fancy set of cocktail napkins. You’ve decided which blogs to contact.
Now comes the hard part – deciding what the best way is to actually promote your upcoming release with each of these blogs.
Many of them will give you guidance. Some only do straight-up announcements. Some like interviews. Some want you to write something personal – and unique – just for them.
But what’s the most effective?
So today I want to talk about that – personalized guest posts vs. interviews vs. cover reveals vs. announcements. Which gets the most bang for the buck? And how do our more experienced authors out there go about putting each together?
Come join the conversation.
