Why Using Videos On A Blog Creates Raving Fans

These days, if you want to make it as a writer, you need to do more than just write well.

It used to be enough, but …

Before we all went digital, every writer’s dream was to be discovered by a publishing house. The publisher would then take care of editing, production, publicity, public relations, distribution – in fact, nearly everything, apart from the act of writing.

Now, aspiring writers are free to publicize their stuff on blogs, in digital magazines, or in eBooks. They can control when and how their material is published, how much it’s sold for, and how it’s publicized.

With this freedom comes a challenge. We need to take up some of the tasks that used to be the domain of publishers.

The most important task is to connect with readers.

How to do it?

We can learn from how publishers connect writers with readers. Publishers get the writer’s face out there any way they can: they arrange interviews with magazines and  TV programs, create news items, and organize book signings and speaking engagements.

You need to put YOUR face out there.

Yes, this can feel scary. But it doesn’t have to be. Learning to create videos can be a lot of fun!
