April, 2014 Electronic Magazine – Marketing Tuesday, May 20 2014 

Your virtual tour can be as little as just increased interaction from a different address, at a given time. However, any tour (real or virtual) is what you make of it. Offering special discounts, individualized signings, goodies (stickers, book marks, art postcards, etc.) and/or even drawing for a free book, are add-ons that may easily be included.

November, 2013 Electronic Magazine – Marketing Friday, Nov 1 2013 

Use a virtual book tour to assist in setting and keeping PR goals

A lot of authors that don’t live off their writing may let leave their own promotional needs unfulfilled. It’s easy to promise yourself to get that press release done by next week, but sometimes easier to choose to do something else instead. By setting up a virtual book tour, you are out little to no expense, but have set dates that you will generate material that can be used for other promotional work.

Virtual book tours are no great mystery – they are actual tours that you can conduct from anywhere that go anywhere. To set up a tour, find places online that have guests, or may be interested in “hosting” a guest that seem to have traffic that are people who would be interested in your book/subject(s). While it would be great if they are all buyers, someone who doesn’t buy, but shares with all their friends may net you more than a single original order! Also, if you discover places that would like to host you, but the dates will not match your tour, consider a stand alone virtual event.

June 2005, V4#6: Genealogy Monday, Jan 5 2009 

When preparing for a genealogy trip, always check to see what information is available online for the repository.  In some cases, the card catalog may be available.  In others, you may apply for a users card and, once it has arrived, even be able to schedule pulls so that your books will be waiting for you at the desk when you arrive at a given repository.

April 2005, V4#4: Genealogy Sunday, Jan 4 2009 

Sometimes there is no substitute for the effort you could put in researching off the computer and outside of your home.  Sometimes this takes the form of traipsing to cemeteries and court houses.  Other times it means taking a trip (sometimes consisting of several days) to a targeted or major research repository. 

When a repository trip is called for, consider traveling with other researchers.  Most groups take travel time as “sounding board” time.  It’s also nice to know someone else already when you enter a repository – even if it everyone’s first trip.  General research trips are offered through lots of places, from a school, library, organization, researcher travel agent, to us: http://www.gregathcompany.com/tours!

When a cemetery/court house trip is needed, go ahead and ask for research travel companions (make an announcement at all your research related organizational meetings, poll you email address book, etc.), you never know who may want to go – for their own research, or just to “get away” for a bit.
