Give Them a Sneak Preview
A book trailer is essentially a short video commercial for your book where you create awareness, peak interest, give an overview of what your potential buyer will read, and increase your book sales.
Marketing professionals know that in order to increase awareness of a product or service, video is the way to go. Google loves video, people prefer to watch than read, videos can evoke emotions more than the written word because it utilizes more of the senses, video is more engaging, and holds a viewer’s attention for a longer period of time.
Utilize the Power of Video to Promote Your Book
Video Book Trailers let the viewer SEE and HEAR what your book is about and SHOW them your storyline. Using exciting, engaging visuals will add to your potential reader’s overall experience about your book and enable you to reach a much wider audience by the power of video. Your video book trailer can be easily shared on the social web and grab the attention of those who are most likely to purchase your book and increase your sales. A successful video book trailer is one where the viewer watches the video, and then wants to read the book because of the video!
