I mentioned in my last post that we would embark on a short venture together in order to learn to do things that would be visual and thus equate in BOOK SALES, according to the latest “research.”
The first idea I came across is the suggestion that authors create a video blog.
So, instead of writing posts each week, like I do, and pairing them with interesting pictures, we are being encouraged to make videos, upload them to YouTube, and then embed them in our blog posts.
In the videos, we can answer questions, do interviews, recommend conferences, teach writing skills, or endorse our books.
In the visual age, this is just one of many ways to drive sales to our website or Amazon page.
We will explore others in the weeks to come.
