Organizing book blog tours, cover reveals, book blitzes and review opportunities

Lola’s Blog Tours 4 Year Anniversary with a Giveaway and a Discount!

Hey everyone! Today is the fourth anniversary of Lola’s Blog Tours!

It’s been four years since I took the leap and started this business of mine and I am so happy to see what it has grown into. First off let me give a big thank you to my awesome banner designer Michelle from Limabean Design! I can’t design at all and I can’t express how amazing it is to have a friendly and reliable designer who is always ready to design my tour banners. She also designed some discount graphics for me this year and they look awesome.

Secondly I want to thank all the authors who took a chance on me and Lola’s Blog Tours and toured one or more of their books with me. Here’s to many more tours! And I want to thank all the awesome bloggers out there who signed-up as a tour hosts or participate in my tours. As a blogger myself I know how much time and effort goes into maintaining a blog and I really appreciate all your help spreading the word about the books I tour.

And thirdly I want to thank the two amazing authors for whom I do assistant work! They are part of the reason I can keep doing this as my full time job and I can’t thank them enough for that!

What happened this year

Just like last year this year saw very little big changes. I build my mailing list for non-fiction tours and since a few months I am now also organizing tours for non-fiction books :). I am currently building my Bookstagram Blitz list after organizing a successful bookstagram blitz for Natalie and the Nerd by Amy Sparling and officially started organizing bookstagram blitzes. A big thanks to Amy Sparling for helping me figure out what a bookstagram blitz would contain. Cover Reveals remain free for now and they turned into my most popular tour, with the book blitz right behind it.

I also started doing more frequent discounts and ran a discount on my review opportunities, all tours and blog tours last year. I definitely plan to keep doing a discount now and then as they prove to be successful so far and I enjoy doing them :).

I maintained my author newsletter and send out a new newsletter approximately once a month. I sent out newsletters featuring tips and info for authors, links to my Lola’s Advice posts and let them know when I was doing a discount. You can sign-up for my newsletter for authors here.

Stats

I always like looking back each year to see how much events I have organized so far. So I included some stats below. These are the total amount of tours I’ve organized in the past four years.

Review Opportunities Discounted in November!

During the whole month of November I am discounting my review opportunities! I am doing a 20$ off discount, so that means you can book a review opportunity for only 40$ in November instead of the normal price of 60$. Want more reviews for your book? Then this service might be able to help you!

Review Opportunities are one of my most popular services and I love organizing them. Review opportunities can stay on my site as long as you want, so reviewers can keep signing-up for a review copy for a long time. I only close a review opportunities when the author asks me to close them. Review Opportunities are more of a long term service. There are no deadlines for when reviewers have to review the books, so it can take some time before you see reviews, but you can always contact me if you want to know the amount of reviewers who signed-up so far.
Want to read more about review opportunities or book one? Stop by review opportunity page.

The Rules

To make use of this discount you have to book your review opportunity with Lola’s Blog Tours in November 2016. Another requirement is that you have the review copies or ARC’s of your book available and send them to me before the end of November 2016. Review Opportunities booked after the end of the month or when you don’t have the review copies and send them to me before the end of the month, will be charged the normal price of 60$.
