Kylee: Hi, my names Kylee and I’m The Publishing Queen and I’m here today with Vicki Bobosis from Your Untold Story. So tell me Vicki why do you think video marketing is so important?
Vicki: Ok, well when it comes to authors you want to be promoting your book 24/7. Now unfortunately not everybody can promote themselves 24/7 but when you’ve got a video especially on the internet you’ve got a personal sales person out there selling 24/7 to potentially millions of customers.
Kylee: Very, very true but if someone wanted to do that, if someone wanted to put their video out there on the internet how would they do that?
Vicki: Ok, essential have a video explaining what your book is about on your website, on your homepage. It’s absolutely essential, it’s become the norm, people expect to see videos on the website so that’s a great way when they are googling you they’ll find your book and then they’ll find your website and then they’ll be able to connect with you on a personal level and that’s invaluable.
Kylee: It is invaluable but if you could leave people with one, the most invaluable thing you could possibly tell people about video marketing what would that be.
Vicki: Ok, Testimonials! People can have testimonials in text, that is fantastic. People believe what they see so when you’re at your launch, even people who are reading your books, ask for a video testimonial it’s easy, it’s effective, people believe what they see.
Kylee: That they do and you’ve seen an example of that here today but Vicki if people wanted to get more expert information like you’ve shared with them where would they go?
Vicki: Ok if you would like to talk video, cause we love connecting people with video our website is www.youruntoldstory.com.au.
Kylee: Thank you Vicki and thanks for giving us a moment here today. Remember to make self publishing as easy as 1, 2, 3 all you have to do is listen to expert advice such as this.
