Here are three of my favorite ways to promote your video book trailer … and generate more sales:
- Promote on video sharing sites. YouTube is the obvious choice here, but don’t just stop there. Google Video, Yahoo! Video, Veoh, and Grouper are other good options. Also check out Revver, which offers a way to generate revenue from ads inserted into your trailer. For even more ideas, view the list of video sharing sites on Wikipedia.
- Promote in your email signature file. Don’t just include a link to your website, also include a link directly to your trailer in every email you send.
- Promote on social networking sites. MySpace is popular with many authors whose books attract a young or general interest audience, but there are social networking sites for all ages, interests, and professions (like this one for book authors!). Wikipedia has a great list of options.
