Ron’s Tip of the Day More on Video

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. Today I am looking at More on Video.

The content of this blog is based on an article from

Here are some ideas about using video.

  1. Book Trailers

Kindlepreneur can help you with Book Trailers. (I have no affiliation with him.)

A good trailer is about atmosphere and a glimpse into your story. There are three elements needed: visuals, soundtrack, and a story.

  • Research and Travel Videos

When traveling to research your book, why not take videos? Later you can experiment and show your readers the travel and research that goes into the book.

  • Live Readings

Before the internet, there were book tours and live readings. So why not make a live reading online for all to see. You can use Facebook Live or YouTube to read some chapters from your newest book.

  • Behind the Scenes Talks

People love behind the scene action of favorite movies or shows. You could do the same with your book.

Reveal some inside information about what went into it, the writing process, background information on characters and story world, and the future.

  • Day in an Author’s Life

Vlogs are popular and do well on YouTube. Why not do a “Day in an Author’s Life” vlog showing how an average (or not so average) author’s day?
