Promoting your e-book on YouTube.

Hi ! I mentioned in my last post that I was going to set up a YouTube Channel in order to promote my e-books and print books.

Well, this is what I have come up with and I will show you how I did it so that you can do the same for your books.

The first thing I did was create a YouTube Channel dedicated to my books. It’s a pretty straightforward thing to do. Follow the instructions on YouTube and create your channel.

I then downloaded 4k Video Downloader.

Using the 4K Video Downloader I searched through clips on YouTube that I felt depicted what my books are about (Military Fiction) mostly and as I am starting to do Historical documentaries, it fits with the channel.

For the introduction video on my site or the “About” clip, I copied the YouTube videos onto the 4K Video Downloader. These clips were then downloaded onto my computer as Files.

I then downloaded Video pad Video Editor. https://www.videowinsoft.com/videowin-video-converter.html?gclid=CjwKCAjw1uiEBhBzEiwAO9B_Ha4DccNKspwHbk_gfH53TT9oeaNHDKk11IZDjltnTGiw7Z3QuqavuBoC97AQAvD_BwE

Follow the instructions and download your files. In the editor, you can cut which pieces of the video you would like to feature on your own video promotion for your book.

There might be some copyright issues, depending on what you download. There are copyright-free clips and music on the internet for use as well.

In the video, for Steele’s Dien Bien Phu I had copyright issues and any money from ads on this particular clip goes to the movie companies for using their work. This is not a big thing for me as I am hoping to pick up on sales for the book.

Once you have your Video clip ready and you are happy with it, add a background audio track.

After that, you can either use the text option or plug a microphone into your computer and press the “record” button to add narration.

Yeah! I know that most of us are introverts! My voice sounds weird and my accent is so strong! But what the hell?

I hope this helps and please take a look at my site.

Thanks and have a great day.

Ricky.
