Promote Your Book with a Video
Why do I need a video to promote my book?
We live in a fast, busy world that is dominated more and more by the visual media. Just a few years back, it was enough to tweet about your book, or post on Facebook that it's out there, but nowadays videos have taken over the spotlight. Now, text-based posts get lost among other attention-grabbing material, mainly videos and animated gifs.
That's why Marraii Design offers book authors straight-to-the-point, 30 seconds long video, that prominently features your book, and the most crucial data a reader needs to generate interest in your book. Plus, videos are often shared, and can become viral, so that gives your book a chance to reach wider audience.
Where to use book promotion videos?
The quickest way to grab attention of potential readers is to share a video about your upcoming book on:
- your social media profiles (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+),
- on YouTube,
- on author's Amazon page,
- various sites that let you upload videos of your book
- and your blog/website.
Your book promotion video will include:
- INTRO: a dynamic, 3d book image with your book cover, title, author name, and description
- REVIEWS: 3 customer reviews, or quotes from the book, animated with your 3d cover
- SAMPLE CHAPTER: 2 pages from your book to display as a sample
- OUTRO: information on where to buy, author blog/website/social media
Here is what I need from you:
- Book cover (front, back, and spine)
- Book title, author, and description, or intro message of your choosing
(description: keep it short to fit on the slide shown above)
- 3 reviews with reviewers' names, or 3 quotes from the book
(keep them short so people can read them; 2-3 sentences that really hit home run)
- 2 pages from your book
(already formatted PDF you sent to Createspace would be ideal; I can extract 2 pages you want presented from it)
- Information on where to buy, author blog/website/social media
