An author may create a book tour across their social media platforms. You may choose a specific time to present content about your book, respond to questions and ask for followers views on the topic.
You may also visit Facebook groups like your niche or topic, and host a Q&A session. Post a question or info about the book and get feedback from group members.
There are other types of social media events, such as Twitter, Video, Skype or Google Plus (Hangout) chats. Each presents an opportunity to invite your friends, followers, circle members, and friends’ friends. Note: Don’t forget to create a short #hashtag (that no one else is using) for your tour.
Promote each chat on your platform’s Event Page. Joint venture partners (friends/associates/hosts) can share information about the upcoming chat with their tribe.
