Tour Host Guidelines

Tour Host Guidelines

Important information regarding blog tours.

Tour post format:

Firstly as blogger I understand the amount of time that often goes into even the simplest post. That’s why all posts are sent to you in HTML code so that you only have one item to copy paste and publish with no formatting and editing required.
For those hosts not comfortable with using this code, please pick your post preference here:
I am not sending all formats out at once in order to minimise confusion and the risk of duplication.
Tour day: 
Please make sure your tour post is up in the morning before or by 09:00AM (Pacific Time) on the day of the tour.  This is so that the authors can link timously to your post and have their readers visit your blog. Unless *otherwise stated, it should be the top post of the day to ensure maximum exposure for the author we are assisting. I appreciate it when hosts send me a link to their post on the day the post is published.
The posts do not have to be top posts of the day.

Tour schedule: 

I try to ensure that we stick to schedule but sometimes life gets in the way and flexibility is required. So if you are unable to make a post for whatever reason please be quick to let me know so that I can move you to another spot and find a replacement on time. If I am not informed of I will hesitate to invite you for subsequent tours as reliability is of the highest priority.

Bookings: 

I accommodate hosts on a first come first serve basis, so you should know that if you did not get a date you were scheduled for it is because another blogger got there first.
That being said, again I am quite flexible. If you cannot do any other day let me know and I can work out who to shuffle around to accommodate you.
 

Promo Items: 

All tour promo items – interviews, guest posts, author feature, etc – come in two formats, pre- prepared in HTML for blogger and wordpress and normal word or  written specifically for your tour stop when scheduled for one.
In the case of the latter, if you sign up for a promo post, you must provide your preferred guest post topic or interview questions for the author at least 3 weeks before the tour begins (reminders will be sent).
Host Requirements: 
Only that you be commit to the dates you have booked yourself for and that’s why I will send you the post material a week in advance.
Prioritize the posts which meet “top post of the day” criteria.
