The 10 Secrets to Making a Spellbinding Video Trailer for Your Next Blog, Book, or Product Launch | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Okay, so not everybody is a natural-born Steven Spielberg.


You might like the idea of creating a trailer for your next launch. You might even believe it’s doable after reading this guide to creating movie trailers.

Can little old you really make a trailer that connects with visitors on such a primal level it throws them into a frenzy to subscribe?

 

Are you really capable of making a video so jaw-dropping they want to tell their friends, creating a tidal wave of viral traffic for your new project?

7 Dirty Little Book Publishing Secrets that Every Writer Needs to Know | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Paris Hilton has one. Rob Lowe has one too. Even Sharon Osbourne’s got one. 


Get your mind out of the gutter people — I’m talking about books.

38 Critical Books Every Blogger Needs to Read

38 Critical Books Every Blogger Needs to Read | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Your blog is a business.


I’m not saying that your blog should make money. If you’re a Copyblogger reader, that’s probably already something you’re focusing on.

 

I’m saying that your blog (independent of the other parts of your business) itself has all of the components of a business:

 

-You have an idea … that’s entrepreneurship.
-You write content … that’s the product.
-You build a list of subscribers and do some guest blogging … that’s marketing.
-You have readers … those are customers.
-You run analytics to see what’s working and what isn’t … that’s managerial accounting.

What the eBook Revolution Means and How Copywriters Can Prosper From It

What the eBook Revolution Means and How Copywriters Can Prosper From It | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

You love books. Printed books. And like most writers, you’re probably an avid reader who has spent thousands of hours with print books over your lifetime. Perhaps you’re mourning their passing.

 

No, print isn’t quite dead, but it is struggling. And when publishing is fully reborn, it will be utterly different.


As a writer, you’ve never stood in front of more opportunity than you do right now. As a copywriter, you are uniquely positioned to take advantage of this publishing revolution.


The world of publishing has already changed forever, and you must make a decision. Right now. For those who believe ringing the death knell is premature, I’ll call the honorable voice of History to the stand.
