Gillespie Book Trailer Tips 

April 18, 2015 - Book Trailers and Marketing

Terri and Bob Gillespie of More Than Memories Video (MTM Video)

In April 2015, Bob and Terri Gillespie of MTM Video from Media, PA, presented unique and practical ideas to authors interested in marketing their books through video productions. 


According to Forbes Magazine, nearly 1 million new books are released each year. For independent authors, finding a way to stand out in the sea of great books is a challenge. From book trailers to video blogs, authors have more opportunities to market their books than ever before.


The seminar explained how a book trailer—like a movie trailer—is designed to get people talking about your book and to drive sales, or at least interest.


The Gillespies presented examples of their work as well as practical instruction on how authors can produce their own videos.
