Re: Book Trailers? Here Check mine out

Thanks Jaustin for asking to people consider those important design questions (Book Trailer Feedbak Elements) before putting together their Book Trailer.


My first one was too long and I did not  give people enough time to read the text, plus the text was way  too long and poorly edited.


So, after getting feedback, I  redesigned it by recreating a story-line that made more sense, reduced the amount of text, and shorted the trailer down to 2.08 minutes.

I'm not certain if this qualifies as a book trailer or an info-mertial (SP?)

Re: Book Trailers? Here Check mine out

I'm new and this is my first post. My childrens book was just published and I'm in the process of marketing. When I was making my trailer I came across a wonderful site for royalty free music.  www.dawnload.com  Thousands of music in 30 sec., 60 sec., and 2 min + pieces.  What is also nice is that you can search by theme and put in keywords. But what is REALLY nice is there offer of $40 FREE music.  Hope this helps some of you.  I used one of my free music pieces for my first trailer (below):

A question: Can we put a trailer on our createspace e-page?

 

 

Help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Book Trailers? Here Check mine out

I can't offer any help, I'm afraid. I just came in to let you know I watched your video and it is beautiful! I don't have any young ones at home. If I did, I'd be buying your book and I'd be keeping that video link on my computer.

 

Congratulations on a first-class video.

Barbara:

 

I've answered a few of your questions in your personal message (PM) box on CreateSpace. Nice job on the trailer.

Re: Book Trailers? Here Check mine out

A few weeks ago I posted the name of the site where I got $40 worth of FREE royalty free legal for You Tube music. I apologize for giving the wrong url.... the correct one is:

 

dawnmusic.com

 

I used it in my trailer:

Here is my first for 2011. It sums up the whole collection: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBHTBhFTSMg

My aim is to market the fiction this year because the nonfiction sells itself.

Wow!  Those are some great trailers.  Now I realize mine is too long so I'll go back and edit it a bit.

Really cool and sophisticated!

 

Mine is quite the opposite - simple and naive, for young children. If you have 0.5 minute to spare, here it is:
