Our digital platform facilitates virtual Book Tours for (indie) authors/publishers and Brand Campaigns for book-related companies.

 

A virtual Book Tour is the promotion of your book on social media with the help of book influencers. We offer you a fast, easy and intuitive platform with 4000+ registered and vetted book lovers, many from the US and the UK. Reaching these Bookstagrammers (Instagram), Booktokers (TikTok), Booktubers (YouTube) and Book bloggers is just one click away. Your book promotion will be seen by all of them and you'll only communicate with the ones that are interested in your offer. This efficiency will save you so much time. You'll have complete control over your book tour. You can check every book influencer's data (social channels, favorite book genres, engagement) and there are no limits. Invite as many participants as you want, add Giveaways or competitions, whatever you wish. On top of that you'll get the best customer service because we will assist you in every step of the way! Our virtual Book Tours will get your book the attention it deserves on all major social media sites.

 

Brand Campaigns work with the same concept. We help (online) bookstores, ebook- and audiobook apps, libraries, foundations etc. to reach a wider audience with the help of book influencers.

 

You can either run the Book Tour or Brand Campaign yourself or choose assistance up to a full service campaign in which you will be served by a dedicated campaign manager. For more information about our packages, check the Price List

A Book Tour or Brand Campaign is a promotional project for your book or bookish product/service. You get to work with book influencers that will promote and/or review your book, product or service. Let's take the example of a Book Tour. After you have selected your favorite candidates, you will distribute your book to them. You can send them a physical copy, an ebook, an audiobook or you give them the opportunity to buy your book and reimburse them for it. Your candidates need some time to read your book. When they are done they will create a picture (Instagram), a video (Instagram Reel, Tiktok or Youtube) or a blog (Instagram, website) about your book. They will add captions to it that talk about your book (a promotion or a review). After they are done they will upload their link(s) to your results page on our website.

Our Promotional Package is a great option to use our channels for your promotions. Our most important channels are Instagram, TikTok and our newsletter. Promotional packages are used by publisher and authors that do not choose to run a book tour but want to be seen by book influencers anyway! For instance for the launch of a Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaign.

We offer you:

  • A dedicated Tiktok video on our channel with a minimum of 2000 views
  • The tiktok will be copied to our Instagram channel and published as an Instagram Reel
  • We will feature your book in our newsletter to 4000+ book influencers

The price for the Promotional Package is $250.

Indie authors are dear to our heart. We applaud your bravery of running the complete show yourself. We have had special low pricing for authors from the start and have decided to implement these prices for all authors running their own Author Book Tour. Please check our Price List for information about Author Book Tours.

Some reviews by (indie) authors:

Rewards

No, they're not. However, we strongly advice you to add incentives to your Book Tours and Brand Campaigns.

Book influencers receive books and other offers on a daily basis. They put in lots of their spare time to read books, write reviews/promotional captions and make pretty pictures and videos. They have to manage their time wisely and will likely choose incentivized campaigns over campaigns that do not offer incentives.

You can offer payments or gift cards. Please keep in mind that gift cards have limitations. For example, a gift from Amazon US can not be used by someone in Europe. Also, before you make payments with a service like Paypal, check which email address is being used for the service by the book influencer. Our advice is to always use your chat options on the website to talk to book influencers about the payouts of incentives.

Because our influencers live all over the world and not all of them are registered as a company, paying them can be a challenge. Some can send invoices, most can't. You may handle the payments yourself but you can also let us handle it for you.

In this case we will send you an invoice based on the amount of influencers that have participated in your Book Tour or Brand Campaign and the deal you closed with any one of them. We handle the administration and bank transfers with the influencers. For this service we charge you 20% commission.

 

If you choose to handle the payments yourself we strongly advise you to look closely at the options. Not every country has Paypal, not every book influencer uses the same email address for Paypal as the address you have from them. Paying with gift cards is an option too. However, keep in mind that gift cards have limitations. For example, a gift card from Amazon US can not be used by a book influencer outside the US. Use the chat options on Bookstagrammers.com to discuss individual preferences and options with your participants.

If your reward is a product, a service or a gift card, you are in charge of giving these to the book influencers. If you run your own Brand Campaign you can request addresses by using the chat service. If you chose our Full Service option we will provide you with a list of addresses after approval of the influencers.

Bookstagrammers

A Bookstagrammer  is someone that is a huge fan of books and makes content about books on Instagram. A Booktuber uses YouTube, a Booktoker TikTok. And a book blogger runs their own website.  Many of these very authentic influencers use multiple social media platforms. On this website we talk about Bookstagrammers or book influencers but we mean all kinds of book fans.

Thousands, all over the world. For instance, take a look on Instagram at the hashtag #bookstagram. You'll see over 70 million results!

Or just Google the word Booktok and you'll be amazed by the rising value of Tiktok for publishers and authors.

We are happy to work with many of these great content creators.

Yes of course! Book influencers use their channels for different kind of promotions. Many people from the book community are very eager to learn (online courses, services), have a strong aesthetic sense (clothing, make-up, jewelry, furniture, decoration) and are socially concerned (movements). Just ask and we'll give you an honest answer if we see possibilities for your brand to be promoted by the book community.

Legal

Only when you sign up for a membership, we will set up a contract with you.

Our Terms & Conditions and Terms of Use are published on the website.

Yes, they are obligated to do so. They will add hashtags to their posts such as #ad or #spon, they will adjust the settings of their photo or video and they will express themselves in the caps or spoken text.
