Put Your Book Trailer on TV for $1,300

As digital tools improve, many writers have created book trailers and other video content for their eBooks. Today, one advertising reporter explained how you can use Google TV Ads to put these video extras on broadcast television.

Today’s guest on the Morning Media Menu was Slate ad critic Seth Stevenson. At Slate V, he built a simple video advertisement, and used Google TV Ads to broadcast his ad on cable television–scoring a staggering 1.3 million total television views in a week, all for $1,300.

He summarized how publishers can use this new tool: “For publishers, or even for individual authors, it’s a great tool…I know in publishing today you don’t need to sell too many books to be considered a success. If you can reach 500,000 people with an ad for your book for $500, the math almost makes too much sense.”
