    *Online Video Tips and Strategies for Authors and Writers*

    Today I am going to talk to you about how you can use online video to
    promote yourself as an author of a writer. Before I do so I wanted to share
    with you some of the benefits of using online video being an author and a
    writer.

    As an Author, video can be a great way for people to get to know you and
    the person behind the book. You can use video to share your story about
    what inspired you to write the book and how the book will benefit anyone
    reading it.

    Video in general is also the ideal way to raise awareness about your book
    and your brand. When you optimise your videos for the search engines, they
    are much more likely to appear in the Google search, and when a video is
    seen in a google search people are much more likely to click on it.

    How can you use video to promote yourself as an Author or Writer though?

    1) *Read an excerpt from your book* – Writers are usually very eloquent
    with their words and video can allow you to express your words fully.
    Allowing people to truly engage with you and your content while generating
    interest for your book.

    2) *Video Interviews* – Interviews are a great way to share your book and
    your story. Today it is much easier to create a video interview. You can
    have a friend ask you questions behind the camera or use a live google
    hangout as these will be live online where people can comment and share.
    Hangouts are also a free tool to use and take advantage of.

    3) *Call to Action for FREE Chapter of Your Book* – Its always important to
    have a call to action at the end of a video. This is a great way to inform
    people about your book and invite them to download a chapter for free in
    return to be added to your list.

    I do hope you have found this to be useful and you will start using these
    strategies to raise awareness about your book.

    All the best

    It is so funny that I happened to find your video in my in box because I
    have been sitting here contemplating whether or not I should do a video to
    market my novel. And talk to potential readers about how the novel was
    born. You just answered my question. Thank you.

    Hey Andy Brine,

    looks like you have a mass-spammy approach to promote your video here. I
    look forward to a change from primitive advertisement to in-depth
    discussion of your work.

    No, seriously: if an online video is a good tool to promote a book which
    contains a message to the world, one can also spread the message in a video
    itself instead of burying it in a book. If you suggest to use online videos
    to promote a digital work, which is only made accessible after payment, you
    obviously suggest to use online video to trick people to pay for things
    which could be communicated freely, but which aren’t due to the traditional
    model of artificial scarcity. I suggest a rather different approach: charge
    for the creation of works instead of access to them, promote yourself as a
    service (probably with online videos, too) and provide real value to the
    customer.

    thanks for this Andy, it was really useful. Hate being in front of the
    camera – that’s the deal for writers, they can hide away! But I see it’s
    benefits. I did a ‘reading’ but might try and interview idea next.
