A while back, author, Danielle Dinkelman (If Diets Don’t Work, What Does?) contacted me about her soon to be released book.
“I’m getting on as many podcast shows as possible. Would love to be on your show for my tour,” Danielle said.
Because she fit the criteria for my Plant Based Eating for Health Show and because she gave me enough time to get the episode ready, I was more than happy to have her back on my show. http://plantbasedeatingforhealth.com/danielle/
Podcast Book Tours
Podcast tours are a great way to get your book in front of potential readers and buyers. Not only will you, the author, sell books, podcast tours raise awareness about your other products and services…for a long time to come.
When done right, the potential to get in front of hundreds of thousands, even millions, of potential readers is very feasible.
Many well known authors became household names due to a well planned and implemented podcast tour. People like Lisa Nichols, Hal Elrod, Mel Robbins and others gained massive visibility due to getting on lots of podcast shows in a short period of time.
Yet, many authors never even consider a tour. Or they say, “Those other authors are just lucky.”
I can assure you, luck wasn’t what happened. Focus, planning and implementation was.
Yet again, many authors never consider a tour.
Why? Well, there are a few reasons.
1. The microphone and camera intimidate them.
2. They don’t plan far enough ahead to get enough traction.
3. They don’t know what to do.
To let fear hold you back from sharing your book with the world, is to do yourself and your potential readers a disservice. If your message is important, you need to get it in front of readers. Fear can be worked through with the right training.
If you are someone who doesn’t plan ahead, time to change that if you want to be a successful author.
If you don’t know what to do, there’s a great solution…. read on.
Currently, I am working on two books. A memoir and a book on marketing a plant based/vegan business.
With both, podcast tours will be at the top of my marketing and promotions plan.
With my memoir, I will look for the following type of shows to be on.
- Overcoming adversity
With my book on plant based/vegan marketing, I will seek to get on shows on the following.
- Health and fitness
- Plant based eating
