Does anyone else promote their books on you tube ? I have 4 videos now with my first video now at 450 hits and growing, i have seen a sharp increase in visitors to my website in May resulting in my best months sales to date. My latest video shows clips from all the old TV shows available in 1968 ( The year in which my story is set) there are some golden oldies from both sides of the Atlantic.
Just thought it might work for other authors !

Not sure how much it works, but I have about 20 videos on youtube promoting books. The most non-sensical one has had over 100 000 views. Book sales do not match that number.

I have not had any sells come from YouTube traffic. I've gotten a lot of comments, but frankly, some people hate it because all you can pretty much do is a slideshow kind of thing, even when you have recorded video to go along with it.

Yeah, I know that my titles are up there. Thanks for reminding me though. I guess crime fiction is not big on YouTube, but then again I only made two trailer. I've mostly been active in FaceBook Tumblr more than YouTube, when it comes to book promotion.

Im in the process of adding videos online: A Song for my book (how unique is that?), a trailer (yep like everyone), an interview (ditto) and a longer movie/song... I hope! As I only posted this week I'll let you know if it has any impact. My issue is with LULU, that under the spotlight page the LINKS to YouTUBE do not work. Have you found the same problem?
Theme song (video to follow next week) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMOOMw1NAXE
Plus a trailer I made for fun:
(Once kids read the book the video will make sense (;-)
