Internet Book Promotion

Internet book promotion is essential for today's authors. Whether you have self published your book or it's been published by a big New York based publisher, you must still promote it. In this article, we'll look at a cutting edge technology that will bring you the kind of exposure for your book that most authors dream of.

Although almost every author's dream is to be on Oprah, for most, this is unlikely. Instead of dreaming, take action and start implementing techniques that work.

The risk? A little bit of time and money.

The reward? Increased exposure and strong book sales. And who knows ... maybe you'll end up generating so much publicity that you will get the call from Oprah.

When I talk about internet book promotion, I'm referring to more than web site book promotion, although it is essential to have a web site that acts a store front for your book. (Click on the link to read my recommendations.)

What I'm talking about is the latest technology—making an internet infomercial.

You've seen informercials on t.v., but did you know that internet informercials are the hot new trend? And like other trends, it won't go out of style. Internet video is here to stay. Why? The increase in the number of broadband users (those who have a fast internet connection which can support streaming video) has tripled and Google—the most important search engine on the web—is cataloging video the same way they do web pages.

The reward?

Your internet book promotion video will be catalogued and viewed by hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people worldwide.

Infomercial internet book promotion is perfect for the niche book marketer who needs to attract interested book buyers from around the world to create a substantial following in their market.

It's also good for anyone who wants to get the word out about their book, whether it's a physical book, an ebook or any other type of information product.

This is your opportunity to learn how to make a short video (just three to five minutes) of you talking about the benefits of your book. If you're camera shy, a friend or relative can interview you. If the thought of this makes you nervous, simply think of it as a conversation about your book with a friend.

In your video, you'll tell your listeners about your book and how it enlightens, entertains, solves a problem or otherwise increases the quality of your readers' lives.

Making an infomercial does two things. It gets you in front of your readers—the people who will buy your book. It humanizes you—makes you real and credible.

You're no longer just another flat author picture pasted on a web page—you're a living, breathing human being. After viewing your video, people will feel as though they've gotten to know you which makes them much more likely to buy your book. If you learn anything at all from this article, know this: people like to buy things from people they know. If you make an infomercial about your book and keep things warm and conversational, you'll increase the readership for your bo

The entry costs for learning how to do internet book promotion in this way are low. In fact, you probably already own a video camera and a tripod. Most likely, you have a computer. And even if you don't consider yourself technologically savvy, you can learn how to create a short video.

As soon as I have finished my first infomercial, I'll post it to the web. Until then, check out the link above to start thinking about how you can use this resource to make an infomercial for your book.
