Let's Look at Event Blog Tours
That Create Impact . . .
SuperStar Blog Tour™
A SuperStar Blog Tour is an Internet event. It creates
buzz with key influencers and their tribes. The SuperStar Blog Tour might cover
a small group of blogs, but the blogs are all written by key influencers, have
high-traffic, and are read by devoted followers.
Before Tim Ferris did a SuperStar Blog Tour, his book The 4-Hour Workweek
was rejected by 26 out of 27 publishers. When Tim launched the book via the one
publisher who said yes, he launched with the help of many top bloggers and social media stars.

bloggers on your website for a month or more. Each day you feature a different
blogger’s post. All blog posts are related to a theme.
You’ve probably heard of Amanda Hocking and her $2 million book deal,
but did you know that her Zombiepalooza in October 2010 was the launch pad for
her rise to bestsellerdom?
Before Amanda’s October 2010 event, she was selling 2,000
to 5,000 copies of her Kindle ebooks each month. Between April 15 and August
27, 2010, she sold 15,000 ebooks in total.
By December 30, 2010 (just two months after her Zombiepalooza),
she had sold 148,887 copies of her self-published Kindle ebooks on Amazon.com,
with over 99,000 of those sold in December.
In January 2011, she sold 450,000 additional copies of her ebooks on Amazon.com.
She made the USA TODAY bestseller list by February 2011.
By February 28, 2011, she had sold 900,000 copies of her self-published ebooks – an additional 300,000 copies in one month.
In March 2011, after totaling more than one million book
sales, she sold rights to four books to St. Martin’s Press for $2 million plus.
Why did she sell to a major publisher? Her answer: “For me to be
a billion-dollar author, I need to have people buying my books at Wal-Mart.”
The New York Times has written multiple stories on her success.
She was a featured speaker at Comic-Con 2011.
An option for the movie rights to the Trylle series was bought by Media Rights Capital.
She bought a life-size Han Solo figure encased in carbonite for $7,000 as well as a new house in her hometown of Austin, Minnesota.
All this from one BlogPalooza!
Okay, maybe you don’t want a Han Solo figure for your home. But I bet you’d
love to be offered a $2 million dollar deal? I bet you’d love to be featured in
the New York Times multiple times. I bet you’d love to be a billion-dollar author or Internet marketer.
