Epic Press Ltd, an independent publishing house and leading provider of self publishing and promotional services, today announced a ground breaking book promotion service for authors and publishers. Epic Press’ new service allows authors and publishers alike to benefit from an array of Print On Demand publishing and online promotional tools to maximize author and book exposure in the marketplace.

At the core of the promotional service is the provision of high quality 30 second or 1 minute video trailers that promote authors and their books on popular video sharing sites such as YouTube, GoogleVideo and MySpace. These viral videos, released before and after publication act to heighten anticipation and awareness of newly published books and can result in a significant increase in book sales.

Epic Press asserts that with the advent of high traffic video sharing sites such as YouTube, it’s never been easier to exploit the medium of video to promote books. Viral teaser trailers for books are rarely used, but are a superb and yet cost effective online promotion tool. Priced from £249, they are well within the reach of aspiring authors who want to leverage the power of the web to increase sales.

Atif Farooq, Managing Director of Epic Press said, “Well-made viral videos that are short, eye-catching and intriguing to the viewer, build up a sense of anticipation on the web and increase traffic to book sales portals such as Amazon. We live in a multimedia age, and the book industry hasn’t done enough to leverage these exciting tools to reach sales goals. We explain to our authors, why send a stuffy written email promoting a book to friends and family when you can send them a cool YouTube link that will get your message across more memorably?”

“Epic Press is one of the few independent publishers that can offer authors the specific tools necessary to make their book a financial success,” Mr Farooq added. “From high quality website production to YouTube video trailers, we enable our books to gain the exposure they need to reach our authors goals.”
