Host a Video Contest!

We all know video is super popular but is there a way you can use video to engage your readers? You bet. Besides having one professionally created you could host a contest that encourages readers to create a short video about your book. You’ll need to award some great prizes for this, that goes without saying, but think of the fun you could have with a video contest like this?

Especially if your book slants to a younger crowd, a video contest could be a great way to promote your book and get your readers engaged in your message. To see a list of contests on YouTube click the following link: http://youtube.com/contests_main . If you run a contest like this you should look to YouTube to be your primary host.

My friend and guru Sharon Buck teaches me computer stuff via video – she’s got some great stuff! She even taught me to do videos via video and it was all new for me.  I put her link in at her name if you’re interested in discussing promo and marketing with her!

Keep reading and writing – EVERY DAY! Nancy Q.
