Every book trailer will look diffferent..we share our specific examples inside the product.

Our sales trailer was done using Prezi and outsourced voice over and production. Similar to what you can do promoting with a trailer promoting your books. We show you a couple of other different production styles inside and we provide you with an outsourcer list.

But, we are not making the trailers for you.. you make your own, or outsource them. This is not a production service.

Disclosure: I did get a review copy, and I am an affiliate for this product.

Here is the email I sent to my list:



Market Your Books Like Major Publishing Companies Do...


As a self-publisher, it is sometimes hard to believe that you and I could deliver the same marketing muscle to our books as the major publishing houses bring to their books, but we really can...

In fact, we can typically use their techniques and do them even better... When we know what to do and how to do it...

One such technique is one that Vincent Ros introduced over the summer in his report, "Kindle Video Marketing Smash". That offer provided a quick introduction to using Video Marketing in the form of Video Book Trailers. That offer is no longer available, but it was my first exposure to the world of Video Book Trailers.

Fast-forward to December of 2012, when Amy Harrop and Deborah Drum put their heads together to develop the "definitive guide" for developing and marketing your Video Book Trailers... [AFFILIATE LINK]

In their newest product, "Book Trailers Treasure Map", they have provided what some might consider a college-level guide for creating and marketing Video Book Trailers...

This product is broken down into 5 Modules:

Module 1 - Book Trailer Essentials - Elements of Successful Book Trailers (3 short PDF's)

Module 2 - Prepping Your Book Trailer (4 short PDF's, 10 minutes of video training)

Module 3 - Producing Your Book Trailer ~ Examples (4 PDF's, 26 minutes of video training, 4 example videos)

Module 4 - Promoting Your Book Trailer - Getting the Word Out (2 PDF's - one is a resource sheet showing where to promote your Video Book Trailers)

Royalty Free Music (2 minute video showing where to find Royalty Free Music)

Module 5 - Book Trailer Resources (3 Resource PDF's defining where to go for: Royalty Free Audio and Images, Stock Footage, Service Providers, Outsourcers, and more)

The price on this product is $9.99 for everyone. [AFFILIATE LINK]

In the up-sell offer, "Book Trailer Ranking PRO", Rob Howard explains how to get your Video Book Trailers ranked well, and where to outsource the work of getting it ranked. The up-sell is available for $12.

In the PRO product, there are 2-PDF's. The first explains how to get your videos to rank. The second explains how to outsource the entire process, and who to hire at Fiverr to help you get the job done.

Overall, this is an exceptional product that will take you from newbie to pro, nearly overnight!!

Yes, you can market your books like a major book publishing company, AND you can do it better than they are doing it!!

Click Here to Learn More... [AFFILIATE LINK]

Thanks for your interest in our product. There is no "one way" to make a book trailer and they all will come out looking different with each method you use (and how many additional features you utilize).

You will find that all in the product.

Regards,
Deborah

Thanks Deborah. I'll keep a look out for reviews. I am just curious to see how one looks.

I am most probably going to buy your WSO and give it a go

Bought the WSO. Bought the upsell. I didn't even need to think about it.

And, from what I'm seeing so far -- as someone who's been producing videos for a couple of years -- this information is basic enough for beginners. However, the five modules (PDFs, videos, and .DOC files) include important book-related tweaks and marketing & ranking angles that are essential for authors and publishers, even if you already have video or even book trailer experience.

Seriously, if you're already published, you know that a book selling well will earn you at least the price of this WSO and the upsell, the very first week... and that's just one book. If you're writing and/or publishing several books (I am, and I recommend it), this product and the upsell are vital.

You can use just the WSO to get your feet wet, and snag the upsell later. However, the upsell will show you things that can save you enough time to write (or at least get a good start on) another book, which leads to even more income.

It's kind of a perpetual motion machine, with steady book income as the result.

As far as I'm concerned, this Book Trailer Treasure Map is very good.

(P.S. It looks like Bill got here ahead of me, and said it even better than I did! *LOL* He's exactly right in his review, too.)

Can you realistically use this for fiction or is it aimed at non-fiction primarily?

We cover both fiction and non-fiction with this training, it's also fundamental training for book trailers in general.

Hey Amy I'm thinking about getting this. I was wondering though is Youtube okay with book trailers? They are essentially ads for your book right? Could that get a youtube account banned?

Good question! Youtube does make terms of services changes to their site occasionally, but I see tons of book trailers on there and I have my own on there as well. The best thing would be to create a channel with your trailer but also include a few other videos as well, that also helps increase visitor stickiness...

what kind of click thru rate do you get on your book trailers? videos get alot of views but the clicks are what counts.

It depends, I post trailers in a variety of places, and don't always track clicks. They definitely can bring in additional traffic. We cover ways to make trailers compelling in the course, so people will want to check out your book.

It depends..you can do it completely free, or you can outsource it, or a mixture of both. The video production tools can vary in cost, and there are a few free ones as well we go over. Our training does not require you to spend any additional money but there are options.

Hi Amy and Deb,

I'm a bit late with my review, sorry about that.

Full Disclosure: I got a review copy, and I'm promoting this offer as an affiliate.

Amy asked me if I'd look at her new WSO about Book Trailers and I nearly flipped! Why? Because I was planning to create a Book Trailer product myself so needless to say I was really interested to see what this was all about.

I went through all the guides and videos and there is a lot of really good information here. Anyone who gets this WSO should be able to easily follow it and create excellent quality Book Trailers.

Being a programmer/web developer, I'm not one to reinvent the wheel if I can at all help it.

I was planning on spending a good amount of time doing research for this topic, and now Amy and Deb have saved me all the trouble.

Thanks Amy and Deb for coming up with pretty much exactly what I was going to create. But to be completely honest, I probably couldn't have done any better

When I'm ready to point my customers to doing Book Trailers, I now have the perfect place to send them.

I Highly Recommend This WSO.

Great value! Got the offer and OTO. Even though I'm pretty familiar with video creation and video SEO, at this price it's a no-brainer. And I learn how to outsource part or all of it? What's not to like!

Thank you Amy and Deborah for putting this together! I was fortunate enough to receive a review copy and boy am I glad I did--this is just what we need to stand out from the crowd of self-publishers.

I have some book plots that deserve the power of video to showcase and promote them and this training is helping me to do just that!

I really like how well organized it all is. The modules are straight forward, the videos are great and the PDFs and quick guides really help to reinforce the steps that need to be taken to produce great book trailers.

I am very thankful that you two are consistent in your quality and attention to what gets books sold!

Thanks and with gratitude,

I like the idea of a book trailer, but where would you put it? Apart from You Tube.
