A 1-day Promotional Blitz or Social Media Blitz is a good way to announce a new release, cover reveal, spread the news of a pricing sale, or just drum up buzz for an older title. However, a blitz can be used to promote a multitude of other things.
- Promote A Giveaway to Build Your Newsletter List*
- Promote A Giveaway to Build Your BookBub or Amazon Following*
- Promote Your Kindle Scout Voting Period
- Promote A Kindle Countdown Deal or Free Day
- Promote a Collaborative Event (i.e. Boxed Set Launch, Newsletter Builder Promo, etc.)
If it’s book related, we can use a blitz to promote it.
*Authors are responsible for the prizes listed in the giveaway. Pure Textuality PR only administers and/or promotes the giveaway.
1-DAY PROMO BLITZ or COVER REVEAL
When we send out our promo blitz or cover reveal booking, the booking announcement goes out to our entire blogger list (along with a social media share request) and it gets posted to Facebook (three profiles, three groups we own, and sixteen book blogger groups), Twitter (added to our regular rotation, which is also pushed to our Facebook fanpage), Google+, and also gets posted to the Pure Textuality PR blog.
On the day of your promo blitz or cover reveal, in addition to the blogger sharing, a spotlight post for your book or series is shared across 130-170 Facebook promo groups (depending on genre), 12 shares on Twitter with hashtags to bring in retweets, and it’s posted to the Pure Textuality blog, the Pure Textuality PR Blog, and the From Helios to Hollywood blog. All tweets incorporate the hashtags #iartg, #ian1, #asmsg, and #bookboost (plus #eartg for erotic romance titles) for maximum exposure. These hashtags routinely get retweeted by authors or book promo related Twitter accounts.
1-DAY SOCIAL MEDIA BLITZ
As an author in today’s industry, a good portion of your time is spent marketing. One of the greatest tools at our disposal is social media. Pure Textuality PR’s Social Media Blitz is a new package we offer specifically aimed at reaching new readers across social media in a one-day concentrated effort. On the day of your blitz, we share your promo across 130+ Facebook promo groups, 12 Tweets scheduled one per hour beginning at 8:30am EST, and your blitz post is sent to our entire blogger list as a social media share request. The promo graphics created for your blitz are also provided to you for future use.
ABOUT OUR BLITZES
When you purchase a blitz, we build a materials folder for our bloggers including the following:
- Promotional Graphics
- Blitz Banner
- Promotional Sharing Graphics (10-15 Count)
- Plain Text Materials (Includes Pre-Typed Social Media Posts)
- Premade HTML Blog Post Materials
- Any Additional Blitz Assets You’d Like to Include
When creating your promotional graphics, we try to match the overall theme of the event branding to that of your book and/or series. None of our promotional graphics feature a PTPR logo. We strongly feel that the objective of purchasing one of our events is to promote your book, not our company. Therefore, the only Pure Textuality PR branding featured anywhere in your event is at the bottom of the premade HTML blog post. All promotional graphics are yours to take with you and use as you wish in the future.
Additional blitz assets may include a blitz-wide giveaway, excerpt(s), teaser(s; made using the same promo graphic template we create for your event), guest posts, and/or author Q&As. The blitz build is completed in the same as one of our blog tours but it only runs for one day.
Leading up to your blitz date, we have an open booking for our bloggers and sign up as many as are willing to share. They are provided with the materials folder link so they have everything they need to create their blog and/or social media posts.
On the day of the blitz, your book is shared by the bloggers who signed up and across all PTPR-owned or managed blogs which match your desired audience. The book is scheduled in our newsletter as a solo feature and across all of our social media platforms.
Should you choose to include a giveaway with you blitz and you choose to have PTPR administer it, the giveaway is also set up to drive social shares of the book and build your newsletter audience. The giveaway will run for 7 days and when it ends, your newsletter subscribers are exported to a CSV file and emailed to you along with the winner’s information for your prize delivery.
Throughout the day of the blitz, the PTPR pre-typed social media post is shared across 130-170 Facebook book promotion groups (the final number of groups varies depending on your book’s genre, price, and Kindle Unlimited availability).
Here are some materials examples of recent tours and blitzes we’ve run so you can see how your book is presented when we share it:
