Book Trailers



A book trailer should highlight makes your book stand above all of the others. In an effective book trailer, you don't need to tell the entire plot. You simply want to give them a taste of what they’ll get.

An effective book trailer should not exceed a minute to a minute and a half in length. You might even want to create two versions - a short and long one to use in different venues.
If your trailer is to succeed, you must use high-quality, professional photos, graphics, and videos. Knowing how to combine these elements requires a professional with an eye for design and great apps and software.

The exciting part is finding powerful background music that reflects the tone of the book. You may even want voice over in your video, just make sure the voice conveys the proper tone and style of your book.

And finally, make sure you tell them in a simple closing screen where the book is available and include your website domain.
