How to Make a Book Trailer That Attracts More Readers
Start with an Enticing Opening
The beginning of a book is crucial. A good beginning can arouse readers' interest in the book so that they are more likely to keep reading. It's also true of your book trailer. To capture viewers' attention, make the first seconds of your trailer as engaging as possible, such as using a particular sentence, dramatic plot, etc.
Add Relevant Reviews or Endorsements
Review and endorsement are high-impact marketing tools that can enhance the credibility of your book trailer. So, use endorsements from some well-known groups, such as Academy Award, New York Times, HuffPost, and more. Or add some quotations from celebrities.

Use Music and Voice-overs to Evoke Reader's Emotion
Soundtracks are great tools to build emotional connections between your book trailer and audiences. If the story is hilarious or sarcastic, you can pair the trailer with some funny and informal soundtracks. Choose from a variety of free soundtracks perfect for different books, and tell your book story via voice-overs.
Leave Audiences Hanging & Add Call to Action
Apart from an intriguing opening, a good book trailer often has a major cliffhanger at the end that makes viewers keen on reading your book. For instance, it can be an unanswered question, a glimmer of hope, an accident, a ticking clock, and many more.
Meanwhile, you can also add a call to action at the end of your book trailer to encourage them to buy your book or subscribe to your channel. Try FlexClip's pre-made call-to-action icons and share your work across social platforms to get more views and subscribers.
