- Trailer: How you can make a 3 minute call to action video for pre-orders for your book. Jim James 0:56
If you are asking people to do something for you and all you can muster is an email, then it's going to be pretty lame in my view. Especially when you are asking a group of PR experts and entrepreneurs to pre-order a book, even though they are in it. This podcast explains how I spent the day making a 3 minutes video – so that it doesn't have to take that long for you. I explain how I used Descript for recording the Amazon store pages with my book on it, and edited that video (unbelievably easy as it converts the audio to text which one edits). I used QRcode-Monkey to make a link to the Amazon page and added that to the end of the video so that people can scan and go. The hosting of the video is on Vimeo with a call to action end frame (there is a little bit of detail to follow there), and then I explain how ZOHO campaigns enable me to send the emails to my 50 contacts based on when they are most likely to open the email!
IF we are going to ask people to help, buy, support us…then how we do it makes a big difference to whether they are going to do so. This podcast explains how to use the picture superiority effect to your advantage using tools which are available on subscription at all in less than US$50 per month.
Finally here is the video (note – also use the branding in the file name)
