New 30-second “Book Teasers” Hot For Self-Publishing Writers


February 2, 2009, Denver, CO ¾ Outskirts Press, Inc., the fastest-growing self-publishing company today announced the introduction of high-impact video “book teasers” to help their authors promote newly published books.


Book Teasers are approximately 30 seconds long and feature extremely dynamic production values that highlight the author’s cover, book title, author photo, byline, retail price, and availability.


With exciting music, eye-catching text and flashy video effects, the streaming book teasers help Outskirts Press authors build excitement and awareness around their new titles. Indeed, studies show that online marketing strategies combining multimedia are much more effective at keeping visitors on a Web site longer than plain old text and graphics alone. And the longer potential buyers stay on a Web site, the more likely they are to purchase.


Combined with the power of viral marketing through video and social networking sites like youTube, mySpace, Aol Video, Google Video, and many more, the book teasers offer even greater potential for exposure. Once the book teasers are produced by Outskirts Press, the author is provided with the final .mp4 file to distribute to whatever video networking sites play a role in their marketing plan.


To celebrate the new book teasers, Outskirts Press is offering a book teaser absolutely free to new Diamond and Pearl authors through the month of February. For more information, the necessary promotion code, and an example of a book teaser, visit:


Book teasers are the most recent of Outskirts Press’s growing selection of marketing tools. Video book trailers, which offer more author customization and are about 1 minute in length, were introduced last year. Audio excerpts, extensive Web site options and the exclusive Marketing COACH are a few other high-tech options that can help self-publishing authors boost their book sales.
