Dispelling the rumors about book trailers – #RRBC #RWISA #RRBC_Community

4WillsPublishing has been producing top-notch book trailers for over 6 years, and when I say top-notch, I truly mean top quality.

Since we’ve gotten into the business of creating these amazing book trailers, we’ve noticed many, many, many “pop-up” ventures around the web, also starting to create book trailers.  AND, now we hear that for your book trailer to be effective, it MUST have lots of moving parts, voice-over in the background and flashing lights.  Yes, they’re saying that still photos just aren’t enough anymore.

I could say that I strongly disagree with this non-truth, but, I won’t, because to lend credence to such non-sense, would mean that I’m wasting precious time that could be utilized in more productive areas.

What I will do, is tell you what truly makes a great book trailer and then, those who are always following our lead just might be able to move into the fast lane where we drive.

Myth:  Moving parts, background voices, and flashing lights make for the best book trailers.

THE TRUTH:  Yes, the music really does enhance the perfect trailer, doesn’t it? If you’ve ever seen a 4WillsPub trailer, you’ll know exactly what I mean… we include the absolute, most perfectly suited music in ALL our trailers!  But, what you want to know is, what makes a book trailer effective and captivating to an audience?  A very well-written and compelling storyline!  THAT’S IT IN A NUTSHELL!  And, that’s how you can tell a 4WillsPub book trailer from all the others.  You don’t have to wait for the credits to roll… it’s clearly obvious that ours are consistently standard in quality.

Now, I’d like to share a sampling of some of those “quality” book trailers we’re so boastfully proud of:

Oh, my!  I almost couldn’t stop!  There are just so many great ones to choose from, I almost couldn’t make up my mind!

These are just a handful of the many beautifully created book trailers that we’ve done.  We like to keep our trailers to one minute to a minute and a half in length, but, I personally believe that when the script is well written and interesting, an extra minute here and there, doesn’t matter at all.  It’s almost like you’re watching a mini-movie clip of the book!

The trailers above are some of my favorites, but, I’d like to suggest that you pick up copies of these books, because they’re some of my favorites, as well!

Until January 25th, 4WillsPublishing is offering a 10% discount on all book trailers!  You definitely get more than what you pay for when 4WillsPub creates your trailer.  To book yours, click HERE!

If you can create your own quality book trailer, I say, go for it!  But, if you know that you can’t, please, enlist the services of the real professionals…4WillsPubYou’ll never get a second chance to make a great first impression, and instead of garnering new readers, you might be chasing them away.

Book trailers do sell books, but, that’s only if the trailers are good!

    Every book trailer that I’ve seen from 4WillsPublishing has been top notch! Great job! 🙂


  2. I have had two videos created by 4WiilsPublishing and am very happy with them. Keep up the good work.


  3. The words are, of course, far, far more important than any superficial stuff like lights and noises. But more importantly, its how the words are put together – the message – the impression – the emotional effect – that the words convey. Yours are more than just formulaic information, as is characteristic of so many trailers. Yours create suspense, a viscerally felt anticipation, a strong sense of the unknown that lies ahead in the pages. If you say that the making of a trailer doesn’t require much conscious effort on your part, I will be very envious.


  4. Hi Nonnie! I completely agree with you. I’ve seen some trailers that can bring on an epileptic seizure with all the blinking lights—so unnecessary. These trailers are great and they have nothing to envy any trailer I’ve seen. Great job!😊💯
