Recent changes to Amazon Ads have made it possible for any publisher or author in Amazon KDP to use the power of videos in their Sponsored Brand Ads. This means having a quality book trailer for your story is more vital than ever.

A book trailer has always been a key tool in a publisher or author’s arsenal. Whether it’s highlighting the key appeal of a fiction novel or a self-help book, a video packs a powerful punch. Amazon incorporating these changes and making them available to authors shows how effective advertising with video can be for your products, especially books.
