Enter PR by the Book’s Holiday Sweepstakes!

POSTED BY doug ON November 30, 2015

This contest is now closed. Thanks to all who entered, and congratulations to our winner! 

Enter for the chance to win a free book trailer
The holiday season is upon us, and we’re giving away one free(!) book trailer to a lucky author to celebrate!

Video offers a lot of potential for authors, whether this is your first book or your 17th!

You don’t have to be on YouTube to capitalize on the benefits of a book trailer – native Facebook videos (videos that have been uploaded directly to Facebook) far outperform YouTube videos that are posted to Facebook. Facebook videos are shared more than YouTube links on Facebook, plus they receive 3x more engagement!

Want to win? Here’s what you have to do.

1) Sign up for the PR by the Book newsletter.

2) That’s it!

Here’s what you could win:

One free 30 second promo video or book trailer produced by Book Frenzy Studios. Books can be fiction or non-fiction. Unfortunately, the producer is not currently accepting occult, LGBT, Religion, or Legal genres, so if your book falls into this genre, it may not be eligible to win.
