If you've written a book then you know the importance and the difficulty of reaching the masses of potential readers. One excellent way to do that is to have a book trailer video! As an author myself, I know how true this is.
My name is Gary Val Tenuta. In addition to being a writer I'm also a graphics illustrator with more than 15 years in the graphics business. So I created a book trailer for my novel, The Ezekiel Code, posted it on YouTube, MySpace and elsewhere on the net and it has generated thousands of hits to my book's official website in just a short time! It continues to generate hits day after day and will continue to do so as long as the video remains posted! And that could be forever! And it's FREE! Unlike paying a fortune for a one-time static ad in a magazine or a newspaper, the book trailer video just keeps on going...and going...
Now I'm creating book trailer videos for other authors! Would you like to be one of them? I'm charging less than many other book trailer producers! If you're interested in having a video made to promote your book, please visit my web page where you can get all the details and see samples of my work:
Still wondering if it's a good idea?
Let's see what the experts are saying:
In an article from CBC News (July, 2006), Steve Osgood (of HarperCollins Publishing) said about book trailer videos:
Osgoode reports that consumer interest in them “has far, far exceeded what we expected.” Moreover, the viral marketing online is paying dividends, he says; retailers have increased orders for recent HarperCollins titles..."
In a New York Times article (August 3, 2006) about book trailer videos Kimberly Small, a senior publicist at Workman Publishing said:
"Put something out there that really entertains, and you know people are going to respond,’’ she said. “And if they are entertained, they just might buy the book.”
Steve Bennett, of findmeanauthor.com, shines more light on the subject:
"Movie trailers pull us in with drama, comedy, even fear, and get us longing to go to the theatre. Film producers have long understood the promotional value of "previews" or "trailers" to entice the public to a particular movie. As a promotional medium the trailer has always proved a winning formula and a crossover to the literary world has been inevitable due to the recent changes in the Internet."
If you don't have a video trailer for your book, you are missing out on the hottest, most cost effective book marketing tool yet!
