Video is Author-Friendly
Video for Authors is an amazingly powerful tool. With advances in technology, most of us have a high resolution video camera in our pockets.
I am one of the speakers at the Redwood Writers 2018 Pen to Published Conference. I am also part of the Conference Committee working to make this a kickass event. At our committee meeting today, we were discussing ways to promote the event. Of course. I volunteered to make a video about the Conference. I sent the link to this post and the YouTube video to the other members of the team. Two birds, one video.
Here is a link to my YouTube Channel where you can learn more marketing tips for authors, speakers, and business owners.

I Love Video
I use video conferencing (Zoom, Skype, FreeConferenceCall.com) to meet with clients. I can record our meetings, and if you think about it, you could record yourself or do an interview using these tools.
