We’ve all seen movie trailers and now we are starting to see the rise of the book trailer too. Just go onto YouTube and search for book trailer, you’ll end up with over 2 million search results. I don’t know about you but the thought of creating book trailers just feels a bit daunting to me, I hate being videod at the best of times and can’t bear listening to recordings of myself either. I have avoided them like the plague. However, eventually I decided that I needed to give in and have a go at creating my own. The book I chose to do one for is LinkedIn Made Easy: Business social networking simplified. It’s got a brand new third edition out this year and the time seemed right.
I thought I’d try something a little different for this particular tale. I decided to see what would happen if I made it into different formats. At the end of this post you can read the tale itself, but I’ve also created a video and slideshare presentation too. It would be great if you’d let me know what you think of them.
