Cranthorpe Millner are excited to announce that we are introducing Bookstagram Tours!
If you are an avid reader with a strong passion for reading and reviewing books, and you’d like to receive free copies of yet to be released titles, then this may be just the thing for you.
If you are already aware of the beauty that is Bookstagram Tours, then feel free to skip to the bottom of this blog post, and follow the link to our sign-up sheet, but if you would like to learn a little more first, we’re here to give you that information.
What is a Bookstagram Tour?
A Bookstagram Tour is a virtual tour that takes place to advertise a manuscript before its release date. They typically start a month in advance to the publication day of the book in order to create hype and build anticipation about it. They involve an agreement between the bookstagrammer and the publisher in which you receive a free copy of the book in exchange for promotion – it’s a win-win situation really.
Various genres are included in Bookstagram Tours, and the bookstagrammer always gets to decide whether they wish to join in. If you’ve heard of Blog Tours, then you’ve probably made the link that these are essentially the same thing, just via Instagram.
How does it work?
If you choose to sign up to become a tour host, you will then be added to a mailing list and contacted when a new tour sign-up becomes available. You can then sign up to become a host.
When choosing our hosts, we will not be looking at the number of followers your account has but how active you are, and how often you interact within the community. We are looking for passionate readers, not just large accounts.
If you are chosen, you will receive a physical copy of the book which we will ask you to promote over the course of the month.
Typically, you would be asked to post 2-3 photos of the book, along with an additional post if there is a giveaway involved.
As the host, you can choose how involved you are, and if you wish you can promote the book on your other social accounts as well.
If you have any questions regarding Bookstagram Tours, or when filling out your sign-up sheet, feel free to contact Shannon at [email protected]
