Who owns the book trailer?
As with all Your Video Ninja video products, you own ALL rights to your video trailer, we reserve the right to display our works in our on and offline portfolios.

How can I use my video book trailer?

  • The Author’s website – drawing in potential readers to purchase your books

  • Social media websites (Facebook/YouTube/Twitter/Instagram and more) to create awareness and drive traffic to your sales page

  • Viral email campaigns

  • As part of your digital media kit / media release

  • Previews of your book to potential book clubs

  • Continuous loop video promotion on screens in bookstores

  • As an emailed video presentation to potential buyers

Can I supply my own pictures, footage and/or music?
It’s possible, but probably not. Image and music quality are incredibly important in creating the best video trailer.  We prefer to control these variables here at YVN. However, exceptions can be made –contact us to discuss. Please be aware that occasionally when we work with external resources it can actually take additional time to produce your video trailer – this may translate into additional cost for the author. You will also need to verify that you have the appropriate copyright releases to utilize any material that you did not specifically create.
Material downloaded from the internet or from other sources may not be used without a signed declaration of copyright release.

What happens to my video once it is complete?
Your Video Ninja has a finely tune strategy when it comes to distributing your video. While literally hundreds of sites exist on which video might be distributed, we utilize the largest and most efficient. Every video receives SEO for the location on which it is posted – this will enhance the likelihood that your book trailer  will show up prominently in top search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

Please note that very long or highly complex books, such as cookbooks, education based book and textbooks, present challenges that may require additional time and fees.

If you have questions about the suitability of your book as a book video trailer, or any questions at all, contact us today.
