Lifestyle: Learning how to Make a Book Trailer on Udemy

Learn how to Make a Book Trailer!

According to Internet Retailer, April 2010, “a visitor who watched a product video is 85% more likely to make a purchase than if they hadn’t.” So, what are the advantages of producing a book trailer?

Book trailers give the author a new means of sharing their book on the social media, and that can benefit sales. I came across a great course on Udemy, by Petra Ortiz, that teaches how to make your own videos. Petra, the instructor, has been creating book trailers and promotional videos for 4+ years and she also provides voice over talent, digital and 'for-print' design work, and more. If you want to take advantage of book trailers as a means to increase sales and market your books, you should not miss this class. It's highly informative, and has lots of great hints and resources. The best thing is that, currently, there is a promotional coupon and you can take the 3 hour class for just $10 instead of $47, 79% off the published price. Excellent quality with great samples of videos that have already been created by the teacher, which makes it even more fun to watch and very educational. This course is meant for beginner level authors, publishers and students who are not familiar with creating videos, nor how to quickly, easily and inexpensively source the components to create one's videos.

Here are what some of the students who took it said:


"I published two books on amazon about 6 months ago and they are just sitting there. The details in this lecture are perfect for making some book tailors to draw attention to my books and get some downloads. I appreciate the royalty free music sections I do think adding the right music can make or break your trailer. I also really liked the examples of other trailers, I usually need to see a few examples to do things like this. That was perfect." 


"I found this course to be just what every indie author needs, a comprehensive tutorial to do-it-yourself book trailer production. It covers everything from the starting requirements to the music track, video footage, animations, and graphics, finishing with several video examples to jump start your creativity. What made this course stand out for me is that it really saves an author time and money."


"This course taught me many skills from creating graphics to place in trailers for my book, finding a great video platform, and creating HD video trailers!"
