Marketing and a CTA – #TCATPG
Marketing can be a challenge.
You have ups and downs Some things work. Others don’t. Marketing can be done in so many ways. I thought I would try something that a writer/illustrator colleauge of mine, Debbie Ohi, is doing…
It has to do with book trailers. Book trailers are a great way to get people interested in your book. They are used like movie trailers. They give the potential consumer a glimpse of the work to hopefully get them interested in buying the product.
There are plenty of companies out there who offer this service. OR if you are handy with some software and are creative, you can make your own. As some of you may know, I have done 5 of my 6 book trailers. I happen to have a book coming out in May, and have been trying to come up with a different approach to a book trailer. I wanted to do something different. Something to get people more involved. Debbie gave me a great idea and that’s where you come in…
THE CHILDREN AT THE PLAYGROUND (Xist Publishing) will be released into the wild in two months.
AND I need YOUR help!
CTA – #TCATPG
Here’s where you come in:
- Take a picture or a short 5-7 second video of your children having fun at the playground.
- Add the hashtag #TCATPG to your pictures
- Send it to email@example.com
- Use #TCATPG in your subject line.
- Give me permission to use your child’s picture in my book trailer.
- If it is okay for me to list your families name, please state so.
- I will send you a confirmation email as soon as I make sure it came in clear.
I plan on using the photos and videos I receive to make a book trailer for The Children At The Playground. I think it would be great to show what everyone likes to do. The video will be around 1 minute long. Depending on the participation, I may not be able to use everyone’s photo or video.
Thanks everyone. I hope to have a great turn out.
