Q:What qualities make a good book video?
A: Good content revealed through pictures, music, text, and voiceover.
Content reveals the focus of the book
Pictures illustrate the main point of the commercial
Music sets the mood
Voiceover talks directly to the viewer.
Text reinforces content suggested by the pictures and music.
Q: How long should a book video be?
A: Book videos are commercials for books. Effective commercials tease you into buying the product, and they do so in 30 to 60 seconds. Take longer than that, and the viewer mentally tunes out. On the internet, spending longer than a minute is rare. If the book video doesn’t capture the viewer’s interest in the first five to ten seconds, the viewer clicks it off. Five to ten SECONDS! That’s all the time you get to keep the viewer watching.
Q:Can I get a book video if I don’t have one?
A: Of course! There are many ways to get a book video made for your book. We make them at WEB4W.com.
