There’s much debate whether a book trailer is an effective tool of book promotion.
Whichever side of the argument you stand, one point has been established over and again: video is nearly essential when it comes to sales. From Kissmetrics:
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a product video could very well be worth a thousand sales.
